Re: Does NVDA have this feature that Window-eyes has?

Steve Nutt
 

Which is quite bad, because what if you get the string 9= in a file, maybe for programming?

It should say Equals repeats nine times.

All the best

NVDA says the number then the symbol, ie, if I write 9 consecutive equal signs, NVDA says 9 equals.

NVDA and JAWS will read 22 times of the "equal sign". Obviously,
Window-eyes is is the better option here. Does anyone know if NVDA or
JAWS has such feature? Thank you.

Hi,

JAWS has it, it's called Filter Repeated Characters, and is under Text Processing.

As far as I can see, NVDA doesn't have it.

Maybe. Have you recently started using screen curtain? I believe it doesn't work when the curtain is on.

I'm using the beta, and just a manifest change all the add ons that were flagged incompatible like the 32 bit version of Goldwave and open link with seem to work now. Most are also working with the latest Alpha as well, but I gather there may need to be a few breaking changes for some new features.

Yes I found a page only the other day that erroneously had a language switched to German hidden in the page with some, ahem, interesting results!

Hi


Have a look under the voice settings and maybe uncheck either this
setting called Automatic language switching (when supported)

or the setting below it called Automatic dialect switching (when
supported) and see if that does the trick.



I have both of mine uchecked as I want it in only english.

I'm a bit puzzled by the actual meaning of Cloud pc in this context.
Also are we talking about the Microsoft or that basically is nvda accessing it on Windows?
The new add on recently released works well on things like graphic files with text in them even on lowly Windows 7.

Try nvda r not nvda shift r. I don't recall nvda shift r being for OCR.

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

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,

Ibrahim
