Re: why can't I turn on caret browsing?

Gene
 

Why do you want to use caret navigation?  As to why you can't, I don't know. 

As for box links, what do you mean?  If you want to bring up a list of links, the command is insert, either insert, f7.  Caret navigation is just about useless to a blind person because we already use screen[-readers that provide a virtual cursor.  Caret browsing is intended to furnish something like a virtual cursor for sighted users but it almost never has any application to a blind user.

As Gene asked: where is this happening? That makes a huge difference to the answer.

If this is happening in a web browser, or in browse mode in Word: open the NVDA browse mode settings, by pressing NVDA+Ctrl+B. One of the early items is the number of characters on a line.
Try lowering this number, then pressing enter.

That might solve your problem, if the environment is something using browse mode.

Otherwise we come to line wrapping, as Gene talked about.

Hi everyone,

 

Turning on my PC this morning, I got a suggestion from Microsoft to install their "Editor" plug-in.  These suggestions come up now and then and I usually ignore them, but since it looked to be the kind of thing we've been talking about recently, I was intrigued.

 

I can confirm it does work!  Essentially, it's a bit like grammarly - when you are typing in an edit field on the web (I used the Edge plugin but there is a Chrome one as well which I assume should work too, since both browsers are based on Chromium), it puts a red underline for spelling errors and a blue one for grammar - not dissimilar to Word.  NVDA doesn't buzz at you for an error, but when navigating it tells you that you have an error on that line, and reads it when you get to it.

Control down arrow has been for a long time, the move by paragraph command in Windows programs where you move through text.  Your advice was completely the opposite of  what is the case.  Just down arrow is move by line.

But we don't know what program you are having the problem with.  In general, programs like Notepad and Word have a feature called word wrap.  If it is off, you might move with the down or up arrow and hear a lot of text spoken.  If you tell us which program you are using, we can tell you how to turn word wrap on.

It makes the length of lines you move by a certain length no matter how long the lines actually are.

Re: Does NVDA run on Windows 10 IoT Enterprise?

 

I'd suggest you get in touch with Microsoft Windows & Office Accessibility Support (US).  Pick your contact method from any one of the options on that page.  If your preference happens to be by phone, and you're in the USA, then (800) 936-5900.  If you are in the UK, see: UK Microsoft & Windows Accessibility Support WebpageIf you're neither in the USA nor the UK, you can always use your smartphone, start the Be My Eyes app, and choose "Microsoft Accessibility" from "Technical".  Support is only offered in English.

This is information that is most likely to be obtained "straight from the horse's mouth."

Saving An Image From A Webpage In Edge

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,

I am currently trying to save an image from a webpage in Microsoft
Edge. I tried the more obvious strategies already:
• Select the image, Applications key, click Copy, and try pasting in a
Word document
• * Pressing Space, Enter, NVDA+Enter, NVDA+Shift+M followed by
NVDA+[, and other such keystrokes to see if I could open up the image
in a new page
• * Saved the page in a bunch of different formats (HTML only, .mhtml,
and the usual full page) in the hope that I could edit the document
and get rid of the rest of the webpage contents leaving only the image
(this did not work due to some oddities like HTML only not preserving
any of the webpage contents, .mhtml being an awkward format to work in
and it not being supported by Firefox, etc. but I still think there
might be potential down this route)

A sighted person might simply zoom the image sufficiently, press Print
Screen, and crop the image. I do not know how to achieve that
independently using nVDA and the keyboard. My sense is that there most
likely is a straightforward route to simply save an image from a page
in Microsoft Edge, and I would be very grateful for any suggestions
and advice as to what that may be.

Kind Regards,
Bhavya Shah

P.S. My apologies for not being able to share the link to the webpage
I am referring to. It is behind authentication and is confidential.
P.P.S. This may seem like a general tech question rather than one
uniquely about NVDA. While the ultimate solution may not leverage any
particular NVDA facility, I think some of the strategies that I tried
not working may reveal shortcomings in NVDA, there might be NVDA
add-ons that may be of use, and my task may be an instance of a
broader category of them for which NVDA users should readily know of a
relatively user-friendly approach.


Re: Whatsapp Desktop with NVDA unable to navigate chat list with arrow up and down keys

Ahmad Ismat
 

Hi Luciano,

 

Thanks so much for your suggestion, it works !

Since I am using laptop keyboard, the object nabigation command is nvda + shift + left arrow instead of nvda + 4  and nvda + shift + right arrow instead of nvda + 6.

 

It simply works fine, really appreciate your response.

Best Wishes,

Ahmad

As the down arrow activates automatically the next chat, when I'm on the chat list, I use the object navigation, NVDA+4 to return, NVDA+6 to advance.

Hi.

I've had the same issue for some months now despite installing the latest updates to the add-on and whatsapp. The only way around it for now it seems is to switch between chats with control tab and control shift tab. When you press control shift tab and you can't cycle back any more, that's the latest chat.

Very best wishes,

Hi,

 

It has ben 3 days since I face problem  when navigating the chat list in Whatsapp Desktop version on Windows 10. Previously one is able to move from one chat list to another using the arrow down or arrow up keys.  Unfortunately now when in the chat list pressing the arrow down or arrow up will go straight to the chat contents and there is no way you can navigate from one chat to another chat anymore !!

It is really frustrating ..anyone face the same problem ?

Is there a fix to this problem ? anyone kind to respond..thanks in advance..

 

My software version used are as follows:

  1. Windows 10 version  21H2

Virtual DJ and NPDA group

I was told there was a Google group for users of virtual DJ and NVDA. I can’t seem to find it

Is there anyone familiar with that group and who know the name of it?
Thanks

You were talking about Chrome.  And I'm not talking about running an f7 spell checker.  I'm talking about the flag words in the text function of Chrome.

No, in the grammar checker for word,  you must use alt down arrow to see the suggestions per the hint that is given.  But per the regular spell checker yews contextual menu is correct.

Don't use alt down arrow. When you are on the word, open the context and down arrow.  You will see many suggestions if the misspelled word is one where the spell checker believes they are useful.

Chrome has a spelling checker, however no grammar checker. Plus you have to hit alt down arrow for the word checker to give you only 1 correction which sucks. It is usable, yes, a bit of a PITA when you hear “3 errors on this line” and you cannot  see what they are until you pass over them and have to hit alt down arrow.

Hi everyone,

 

Turning on my PC this morning, I got a suggestion from Microsoft to install their "Editor" plug-in.  These suggestions come up now and then and I usually ignore them, but since it looked to be the kind of thing we've been talking about recently, I was intrigued.

 

I can confirm it does work!  Essentially, it's a bit like grammarly - when you are typing in an edit field on the web (I used the Edge plugin but there is a Chrome one as well which I assume should work too, since both browsers are based on Chromium), it puts a red underline for spelling errors and a blue one for grammar - not dissimilar to Word.  NVDA doesn't buzz at you for an error, but when navigating it tells you that you have an error on that line, and reads it when you get to it.

 

You can find it at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/microsoft-365/microsoft-editor
