If this is always happening, see maximizing your browser window helps. Sometimes Windows keeps shrinking the default window size until there is no area to click in.

Hey Luke. I played with some NVDA settings but I will double check to see if I tried those specific ones. Thank you for the suggestions.

Does it help to turn off tooltips? (First checkbox in NVDA Object Presentation settings.)

Does it help to turn off "Report dynamic content changes"? (NVDA+5.)

Before I place a bug ticket I just thought I’d see if there’s some setting I can adjust to perhaps mitigate this issue. Let me know if my explanation didn’t make sense and I can add clarifying details. All the usual stuff… Latest versions of windows, NVDA, visual studio blah blah blah. Thank you









Re: Key echo not working in Git Bash using 2022.1

Hi George,

Can you elaborate a bit on the Bluetooth thing, as I’m not clear I understand. I have not upgraded to the latest version of NVDA, chiefly because of complaints like this and compatibility issues with add-ons and other software, and I’m not having any issues with GIT bash on my computer. Are you saying that keyboard echo isn’t spoken aloud when using a Bluetooth speaker or headphones? Thanks.

Re: Frequently Unable to Press Elements On The Web

Bob Cavanaugh
 

This does sound like a website layout issue, though I wonder if the
original poster has something else going on? The original message
indicates this happens frequently, which isn't my experience. I was
trying to buy tickets for an event on Eventbright the other day and
encountered a dialog that I couldn't seem to close, but as it was the
purchase dialog, it wasn't an issue. So, a couple questions for the
original poster of this question:
1. Does the issue happen on the same sites every time, or is it the
case that you can go to a site one day and it works and another day
where it doesn't?
2. Can you provide us some links? Without this information, we can't
tell if there's something wrong with your computer or if you just have
a habit of visiting less than accessible websites. It sounds like my
experience meerrors most on this list, where the occasional website
has issues, but most sites work fine. When you say Google for
instance, I assume you're performing a search, but Google has so many
products that that might not be accurate.

The simplest solution I've found to this problem is making sure you're in focus mode then hitting the End key.  On every YouTube video page I've tried (and those are the ones offered) each successive press of the End key causes the next "chunk" of videos that occur after what's currently already on display to load.  You have to be in Focus mode, as the use of End in this context is a browser keyboard command.

I constantly use both Home and End to shoot to the beginning/end (respectively) of fixed size web pages and will now probably start using End a lot more to trigger "next batch" loading at the current end of a page that loads contents in "chunks."

So Windows can't finish switching to them. But that's a wild guess.

I've only ever run into it when I have three or fewer applications open,

When I open Team Viewer NVDA does not speak anything. Earlier can move with Tab and get into the menu and other required cells.

But now nothing.

Even Object navigation does not provide much help.

 

Anything am I missing or doing wrong?

Team Viewer was fairly accessible with NVDA rather than Any-Desk. But now giving problem.

Hi,

 

I have Github for windows installed. It creates a context menu called Git-Bash-Here and pressing this opens the terminal window MINGW64.

 

I get the$ prompt

 

Character echo is working in Jaws and Narrator.

When you say git bash console do you mean wsl or something else.  The character echo is working for me in wsl.

Hi,

 

In Git Bash console, the key echo is not working. In a command prompt it is. It was working prior to 2022.1

 

I tried modifying in advanced settings the new setting for the console It did not seem to do anything.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Best

George

Thanks Brian.
Is there a way that we could report about this to the Team Viewer support?
Regards,
Ravi.

I'm pretty certain its team viewer. I say this as I had a remote session
with a sighted friend and when we started I had an older team viewer and all
was sweetness and light. However he decided to do the update on my machine
while he was sorting out a problem, and ever since its been the electronic
equivalent of a brick.
I think the quick connect temp version will still work, but if you want to
do the driving, then they have mucked something up, and I bet its something
really stupid. I have not contacted them, as I seldom need it, but it just
goes to show that companies still do not do accessibility testing before
they unleash new versions.

Hi Group,

The latest NVDA Version 22.1 and Team Viewer latest versions does not
provide any useful accessibility.

I am not too sure which has caused this problem. Because I have both latest
versions running.

When I open Team Viewer NVDA does not speak anything. Earlier can move with
Tab and get into the menu and other required cells.

But now nothing.

Even Object navigation does not provide much help.



Anything am I missing or doing wrong?

Team Viewer was fairly accessible with NVDA rather than Any-Desk. But now
giving problem.



Kindly advice.

Thanks,

Ravi.


[Solved] Issue with Microsoft Quick Assist & NVDA

Dimitrios Tsakiridis
 

Hello every one, and Good morning from Greece:

 

I install the latest version of Quick assist for Windows 10, from Microsoft store.

The NVDA does not read any think, when I open the application.

I have the latest version of NVDA.

 

Best regards, Dimitrios Tsakiridis.

Re: Issue With This Apparently Phantom Item 'Task Switcher' With Recent Updates of NVDA

It evidently is the name of the interface that comes up when you alt tab.  A sighted person evidently sees the names of all opened programs and we, of course, hear the program that has focus when we alt tab to it.  A Google search for task switcher Windows 10 gave this result and others I didn't look at:
https://www.hongkiat.com/blog/switch-tasks-windows-10/

As for the running short of memory hypothesis, that has no bearing on the question.  If you run short of RAM, programs are swapped to the hard drive when not being used.  If you use alt tab to switch to another program, that program comes out of the swap file and is placed in RAM while the program you were previously using goes into the swap file.  The swapping occurs when you release alt tab on the program you want to switch to.

I've always assumed it comes up when all switchable (alt+tabbable) applications are busy, and can't re-render their interfaces for some reason. So Windows can't finish switching to them. But that's a wild guess.

I've only ever run into it when I have three or fewer applications open, which is so very rare that I haven't encountered it enough to bother me.

But I'm pretty sure I have encountered it from time to time in Windows 10 of various releases. (I never had Win 7)
