Re: "Recognition failed" whenever I try to use NVDA+R

Evidently, NVDA r, as in your subject line, not NVDA shift r, as in your message.

Did this problem start after an update of any kind to windows or any application on your computer?

Re: screen curtain and saving battery

Kareen
 

Thank you all for the replies. The touch pad toggle is working well even without the addon, the method provided here in the group before is working perfectly well.
Luke, thanks for sharing the ways. I tried the screen off bat file but it turns on the screen whenever i touch a button on the device so it is not the needed solution.
Quentin, thank you for providing the info about the screen curtain, i should try and see if it makes any difference on my laptop.
It seems for now that there is no software solution for making the display turn off unless the laptop manufacturer is including a shortcut for that.


Re: my arrow keys stopped working in whatsapp web using firefox or chrome.

Brian's Mail list account
 

On another group I saw some comments about problems in the latest on line version of the interface. It may well be that they themselves have broken it.
I wonder if a different browser might work. I think its not so much arrow keys as the message list that is the problem. I gave up on them some time ago. They kept on changing it and even on the phone strange things happen for no apparent reason. Might be one to take to the chat sub group, unless somebody has a bright idea.

Hello folks,

My arrow keys stopped working when trying to navigate messages in
whatsapp web using firefox or chrome. I can

t read a message word by word or letter by letter, or line by line.
Neither left or right arrows, or up and down arrows work inside a
message. Now using NVDA 2022.1 on windows ten latest update. Where is
the nvda setting that can control this? I can't think that I made any
changes to the NVDA settings, unless I made a change inadvertently.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

The new version seems to have fixed the memory warnings that occasionally spuriously affected the older ones, so be sure its the latest on whenever you get it. I would say though that there are some instances where copy and paste is allowed but it remains silent. This is because it does not always know that a third party program is able to use the clipboard, I would suspect. I'm thinking of audio editors and some edit areas in some programs in the main.

You might want to raise this as an issue in the issue tracker. It may well be that an app module is needed, so there are two routes to go. Somebody can write it as an add on or it can be in the body of nvda. Having never used the application you mention, I cannot really comment, but most users tend to use it on their phones, at least the ones I know.

Hi,

maybe this has been a topic here before, but I don't remember reading a
solution:
I have subscribed to the Deezer streaming service. I use the service
mainly via my smartphone.
But now I have also installed the Windows app. I have noticed the
following phenomenon:
When I started the Deezer app, it is practically unusable with NVDA. When
moving with the tab key or the cursor keys, NVDA remains mute.
If I then turn on Narrator, the items are read aloud by both Narrator and
NVDA.

Is this due to a setting in NVDA that the items are not spoken in the
Deezer app? What settings are needed so that Nvda alone also reads the
items aloud?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Yours sincerely

Arno

Subject: [nvda] Double Entry Bookkeeping/professional accounting software

Hello

I am looking for some NVDA accessible double entry bookkeeping software. In
other words, a business accounting package.

I currently use Zero, which is a web based accounting service, but its
interface is clunky, and not always as accessible as it could or should be.
I want very much to get away from it.

Fifteen or so years ago I used SQL-Ledger for a while, but it had security
and other issues (it was also web based, but you had to install and
administer it on your own server). I switched briefly to LedgerSMB which was
created as a replacement and to solve the problems of SQL-Ledger, but now
seems defunct.

I think I would prefer something standalone, although if there is a really
good web based system I haven't tried that has a high degree of NVDA
compatibility, I'd be open to it.

Any pointers gratefully received.

Luke

Re: Need help with Thunderbird and Mozilla Apps Enhancements

Brian's Mail list account
 

One thing about pop 3 is that at least in Outlook Express you can set up complex rules so email gets auto sorted into folders and you can even stop downloading email on complex rules or delete from server. In my case I tend to only show spam and inbox on the Imap of the same account, that way I simply fish it out of the spam shove it back in inbox and it gets redelivered and sorted in pop3.
However this is varying a bit off of what we were all talking about before.

Also, it appears to me on reading your message again that you may not
intend to import mail. In that case, the best thing to do is to set up
your accounts in Thunderbird. But I don't know if the automatic setup
lets you specify a POP3 account. It may set them up as IMAP accounts
without giving you a choice. so you may want to manually do so. But I
see no advantage to using POP3. I still have pop3 accounts because I'm
too lazy to change them and they serve me well but I also see no
advantage to them and I have no objection to using an IMAP account.

Plus there is the question of how the account is set up. If you can
export your accounts to Thunderbird in some way, they probably won't
export as they should for the best long term results. Brian, the
moderator, has said that at some point, application specific passwords
will no longer be used by Google. I don't know if that is true but in
case it is, if you allow Thunderbird to set up your accounts or manually
do so if you have problems, you won't need an application specific password.

Outlook Express is so archaic that I don't think you will be able to

that automatically sets up accounts and that works well a lot or
perhaps most of the time, I don't know. I've used it with generally
good results. If it doesn't work well, you can always manually change
settings.

I'm curious why you want to switch now. You can continue to use
Outlook Express with an application specific password. But depending
on what you want to import and how important it is to be able to do
so, using an application specific password may save you a lot of work,
or perhaps I should say, it may put it off for a time, perhaps quite
some time.
