Re: NVDA Malfunctions In Read-Only Text Boxes In Google Chrome When In Focus Mode

Gene
 

This appears to have nothing to do with NVDA.  I tried reading the read only edit field using both JAWS and NVDA using Chrome.  In both cases, when in focus mode in NVDA and in forms mode in JAWS, you couldn't move properly through the field using the left and right arrow keys on the site given as an example in the issue on Github, which is linked to in the original message, at the bottom of the quoted messages. 
Here is the link:
https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_input_readonly

In Firefox, you can move properly.  Also, in Chrome, regardless of screen-reader, you can select the text and copy it to the clipboard using control a to select.  I didn't try selecting it in Firefox moving with the arrow keys.

Re: NVDA Malfunctions In Read-Only Text Boxes In Google Chrome When In Focus Mode

Steve Nutt
 

Hello Jean,

 

JAWS behaves differently in that regard. It will let you move to a read only edit box by pressing E then enter to enter focus mode. You can then use cursor keys to read the read only edit box, you can even perform a control A and Control C, and it will copy only the contents of the read only edit box.

 

I think NVDA should allow this.

 

All the best


Steve

I'm not sure what you are working with.  It appears to be some sort of source code.  When I go to the page, I hear something like welcome to and then the name of an editor.

However, it appears to me that NVDA is working as expected.  A read only edit field is read only, you can't write in it.  Focus mode doesn't let you move in a web page unless you are in a field that allows movement, such as an edit field that allows you to write when in focus mode.  When in structures like combo boxes, you can move as well or in a list of radio buttons.  But the structure on the actual web page must allow you to move and I would think that by definition, a read only edit field wouldn't.  There is no cursor provided in the underlying page for a read only field, I would think.

I just tried the Google search field and I had no problem but that isn't a read only edit field.

In Google Chrome running on Windows 10 Home Edition, NVDA only announces the first character of whatever text is present when in focus mode and using the arrow keys to navigate by character inside read-only text boxes. For example, if the text box contains the word “Hello,” pressing the left or right arrow keys just results in NVDA saying “H.”

 

Similar behavior occurs in Microsoft Edge except NVDA says the word “blank” instead of the first character in the text box. This suggests it may be a broader issue with Chromium browsers. In Firefox, NVDA functions normally in read-only text boxes.

 

I’ve also opened a GitHub ticket for this issue which can be found here:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/13745

 

I searched existing closed and open issues prior to opening a new one and didn’t find a previous report of this issue. Please refer to my bug report for more details and background.

Re: Skipping the advertisements in web browsers.

If so, when you are at a form, searching for the word submit should place you on it and thus at the end of the form.  Screen-reader search on web sites is one of the most valuable and underused screen-reader features.

The rise of the link-button or button-link has mystified me as well.  The only reason I can think of to favor this device is because it is a lot more visually distinct than hyperlinks are, and buttons draw visual attention in a very different way than hyperlinks do.

I hate the things because unless I do a hover over with the mouse I can't honestly tell someone whether what they're dealing with is a real button or a hyperlink dressed as a button.

Same here, virtually never.

I am not doubting those who say they've encountered them, but they are, overall, the rare exception.  These days I do get some sites that ask me to turn off my ad blocker, which I don't do.  For that very rare website that has refused entry or otherwise misbehaved badly when an adblocker is in use, I find an alternative.

I haven't browsed the web without either an ad blocker add-on/extension or using a browser like Brave or Vivaldi that has ad blocking built-in for many years now.

Yes this seems to be an issue.  I can see several issues with mouse tracking on GitHub, however these tend to relate to various elements on pages themselves.  I didn't see one for the Browser controls themselves.  They do read for me when I navigate with the keyboard, but still not with the mouse.  Tested with 2022.1 and 2022.2Beta2 with Chrome Version 102.0.5005.115 (Official Build) (64-bit).

Do feel free to create an issue, and if your version of NVDA or Chrome is different, feel free to note mine as well.

As, I believe I can say with assurance, would virtually any professional computer tech out there.  I haven't seen a web browser that's unreliable about self-updating in a very long time and, much like Windows, if you recognize that it's not updating that indicates that something is wrong.

I have no issue with anyone choosing whatever methods they see fit to maintain their machines.  But I agree that casting doubt upon what are generally recognized as rock solid self-updating functions is counterproductive and innacurate.

That being said, we need to redirect this conversation to an "as it relates to NVDA and Chrome interacting" topic.  I can't help because the issue the OP has reported is, as far as my experience goes, singular.

Re: Skipping the advertisements in web browsers.

Giles Turnbull
 

One website that I know won't show content if adverts are disabled, is ITV online catch-up. I like to watch The Chase quiz show online, but it won't play the episodes if the browser has an ad blocker active. ITV are even more strict than this, because if you are watching a show and skip to a different webpage (or web browser) while an ITV advert is playing, the advert will pause until the ITV window has focus again! I've never figured out how the advert knows that it doesn't have focus, nor that it has lost focus to a different website, since the advert will continue to play if you switch to a non-internet window such as notepad!

No it's not that. When entering a signal chet, the NVDA is switching to edit mode. I know that. But when that happens, i can only navigate in an empty edit field. *grins* So i am switching to browse mode but then it reads, what i described in my prior mail.

Re: Getting to the bottom of a form. was Re: [nvda] Skipping the advertisements in web brouzers.

That is true of some forms but a lot of sites have forms like a log in form.  My question is why forms are being asked about.  I seldom stop at such forms because ways of moving such as move by heading from the top of a page to the beginning of an article, using the letter h, or skipping blocks of links, using the letter n, moves me beyond such forms on web pages.  So how are you V.S. moving to get from the tops of pages to where you want to be?

Re: [Solved] Pacmate 40 display problem

Andre Vosloo
 

Hi there

It worked for part of Friday then stopped. Re-installed the driver as per
manual says unable to load the display. I am wondering if a windows update
possibly broke it. The display is coming on, however nvda is not
recognising it.

Did it work? At what point did it stop. Did you update something, did the
display its firmware. How is it connected?

Which makes me ask why web site builders often disguise the next button by claiming its a button when its really a link instead.

While in browse mode, you could try using the letter b to move by
button. Most forms have a submit button at the end and most fields in
forms aren't buttons. I haven't tried this, but that may be the fastest
way to get to the end of forms in general.

I’m not aware of a reliable method to move to the end of a form on a
Web page. The Window-Eyes screen reader had this capability and I can
see why it would be useful but I don’t believe there’s a way to do it
with NVDA. If the capability exists in a third party addon I’m not
aware of it but I certainly haven’t looked through all features in all
existing addons..

Ravi,

Regarding ads you can do more than skip them. Why not block them with
an ad blocker such as

UBlock Origin.
<https://nam12.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fublockorigin.com%2F&data=05%7C01%7C%7C34c0706649e847ae6fe408da5746b956%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637918258522617479%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=GPB073IeKkGc%2BsMDowFIwic%2BUDg6gsXnNcn3sjLZvcM%3D&reserved=0>

Because ad blockers are not relevant to NVDA itself it would be better
to talk about this type of software on the chat subgroup.

Hi,

Is there a simple way to skip the advertisements in a webpage?

Instead of pressing the down arrow key several times till the end of
the advertisement, any simple way to reach the next required text or data?

Also, a same way to skip the form fields in a page?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Ravi.
