Of course in the UK it all comes out in British English, so there is no way to know. However I have encountered some bizarre sites over the years that switch languages all over the place for no apparent reason, and then those settings come in very handy!

Uncheck language switching and dialect switching, the next setting in
the same dialog. If you don't have settings set to be saved on exit,
save the settings after activating the OK button with control NVDA key c.

Re: signing in as host on Zoom

Gtt North Bay
 

Yes Bob, the room needs to be I think it is called open in the settings on the web at zoom.us otherwise you could not get into the room to claim host as far as I know.
If the room is open then once in the room you can go to the participant list and then go to your name and tab to more option and down arrow to claim host which will pop up a window put the key in and press enter and you should be made host.

Thanks,
Brian B.

According to the below article, it is possible to claim host privileges if the host key is known, which it is in this case. What I am not sure about is if the account has to be set up for anyone to come in and start talking, which this one isn't.

Re: reducing the frequency of progress updates

There are, I believe, three levels that live regions can be set to by those who place them somewhere such as on a web page.  One of the settings, as I recall, interrupts other speech when it is in progress and I believe the other two don't, though I don't know details about the other settings.

Yes, if you have investigated the root cause of the issue, that may be valuable to describe it in the ticket, except if the log makes it already obvious.
You may also describe the work-around you have used in your add-on to solve it; it may be a source of inspiration for someone wanting to implement a pull-request to fix the issue. But beware that NVAccess will probably want to fix the root cause of the issue if possible. Thus, if this solution is a workaround that does not solve the root cause, they may not accept it in a PR.

Why don't you open the ticket yourself? You have all the skills to do it. The technical description that you made of this issue is more than correct with a detailed way to reproduce the issue. And your English, as written in your messages, is also correct.
If something else is blocking you, just let us know and we can help, here or in GitHub once the ticket is opened.

@Gene:
A common consequence of an error occurring in the GUI is that the GUI may not work as expected in the future. For example if you add the following steps to Paul's steps:
- close the input gesture window
- open a new input gesture window
- open a new input gesture window
- open a new input gesture window
- open a new input gesture window
- open a new input gesture window
- open a new input gesture window

You will end up with many input gesture window opened, whereas the standard behaviour of NVDA is to re-focus the input gesture window if it is already opened in the background.

To do this:

Evidently, Firefox doesn't see most of the check boxes.  All I can say is experiment and it might be a good idea to have a sighted person look at the results of what you are doing to see if what seems to be happenning is, that is, are you checking the times for the date you think you are?

On the button that places me in the wrong field where I said that returning to it and repeating the command many times changes the state of the check box, that doesn't work.  Do the following instead,
When you are moved to the wrong field, tab back to the actual check  box.  Use the numpad insert numpad plus command once on the check box.  You will hear check if it is unchecked.  Then shift tab to the button and use the double click command, NVDA insert NVDA enter issued very quickly the same command you have been using.  That works, or it did the two times I tested it.

the minor correction is that at times, issuing what I'm calling the double click command only once works with other check boxes.

This way seems to work.  It may sound involved but it may sound a lot more involved than it is.  I hope it works for you.  I did this using my Windows 7 machine, Firefox and NVDA.  You can see if it works on your system with whatever browsers you want to try.

It appears I figured out how to get the check boxes to check and uncheck, but I don't understand why this works and why another thing doesn't work.  Try the following:
Tab around and be on something you want to check.  Turn off browse mode.  You will find a button and a check box, both for the same thing.  If you use keyboard commands, nothing will happen. 
You will find that if you are on a check box, using the default action command, numpad insert numpad enter, you will hear check if the box is unchecked and uncheck if the box is checked.  However, if you then look at the state of the check box, you will find it unchanged. 

Instead, work with the button associated with the check box, which is a shift tab back from the check box.
Use the same command, numpad insert, numpad enter. 
Issue the command twice quickly, as though you were double clicking a mouse.  Check the check box by tabbing once to it.  This doesn't work the first time, at least not usually.  Shift back to the button and Issue the double click command again and check.  If that doesn't work, issue it a third  time, going back to the button to issue the command every time.  This usually works for me after the second or I think sometimes the third time I issue the command.

As you tab, after you have checked whatever you want, you will find a button that says cannot find a time.  Press the space bar on it and a dialog will come up to fill in your name and e-mail address. Fill in both fields and tab to the appropriate button.  I don't recall what it says but use it to submit the form.

I noticed on one of the fields in this form that when I would double click the button, it moved me to a completely different field, moving me backward.  but if I kept tabbing back to the right button and double clicking it, after a number of times, the check box was checked. 

This is such a ramshackle way of doing things because of the odd now it works and now it doesn't nature of what is occurring that all I can say is these methods or about these methods work when I try them on this form.  You may find you need to experiment but I'm not at all sure anything else works. 

While this is hardly ideal, it seems to let you do what you want in filling out such a form.  I have no idea if you can create one successfully.

Hi Brian,

<snip knowing why you're trying to activate the paper option

PL] I wanted to test if the paper trading credentials were working.

Pranav,

In general, mouse advice is mouse type agnostic.  It applies to old style mechanical mice with the rolling ball, optical mice, and mouse pads on laptops.

If you look at the source code for this page that paper versus live toggle (and it does appear visually as a toggle) is implemented as a checkbox.  Yet, for some reason, it is entirely inaccessible via screen reader.

Not knowing why you're trying to activate the paper option, I do want to let you know that doing so makes the entire background on the login screen go red and a red frame with the word SIMULATED (all caps) appears as a frame around where you enter your login credentials.

How do you see the graphic?  I see nothing and if I press enter on lines where I hear nothing, if I up arrow once from the username field and press enter, I'm placed in the username field, the same with the password field.

also,  how do you know which mode you are in?  I see two items, one that says live and the other says paper but they don't indicate in any way which is active.

Hi Tyler,

A very clever solution. However, my hitting the resulting  button did not do anything. I tried with both google chrome and firefox. 
I however explored some more and found an unlabeled clickable item after the user name edit field. I hit enter on that and was able to switch to paper trading mode.

Open the dev console with ctrl+shift+i. In the edit box, type:

document.querySelector('span.switchery').setAttribute("role", "button")

Hit enter, close the console with the same key and hit the button that should've appeared.

Hi all,

See the page at the below link.

The above link is the login page for my stock broker. I have a live trading
facility and a paper trading facility.    The default login is live. There
are 2 items above the user name box live and paper. I want to activate 
the paper option.
How do I do this? I have tried object navigation and hitting enter and 
also switching to forms mode on that item and hitting enter without success.

If this is the case for a physical mouse, I do have a USB mouse 
connected to this machine. Brian, can your mouse pad advice work with 
a USB mouse or should I switch to an  optical mouse?

Re: using nvda on google doodle polls

The cannot find a time button is to be used if you can't find a time that matches your availability.  Don't use it to bring up the submit dialog unless you can't find a time.  Use the submit button if you can find a time or times.

I just tried the submit button and a dialog comes up asking for my name and e-mail address so the form may be usable after all.  But it might be a good idea to verify that you are placing information where you think you are in terms of check boxes and there are one or two check boxes that I don't understand what they do.  Their purpose might be more clear to a sighted user.

Probably a final word at this time:
First, when moving with the Brave browser, stay in browse mode and down arrow through the form. 

Also, I thought I had figured out how this form might be used, but it may be unusable.  There is no can't find a time button and no dialog to enter your name and e-mail address.  I didn't press the submit button when using the brave browser to see what happens.  You can try and maybe you will be asked for the information, which would appear to make the form usable.

Here is more information.  I just tried this using the Brave browser.  I suspect the results would be the same or similar in any Chrome-based browser.  I saw a lot more fields and checking check boxes with the space bar works.  But be careful you understand what you are checking.  You seem to see different dates and days of the week, such as Wednesday, July     13 and check boxes for different times.

Evidently, Firefox doesn't see most of the check boxes.  All I can say is experiment and it might be a good idea to have a sighted person look at the results of what you are doing to see if what seems to be happenning is, that is, are you checking the times for the date you think you are?

Here is a correction and another  minor correction. 
On the button that places me in the wrong field where I said that returning to it and repeating the command many times changes the state of the check box, that doesn't work.  Do the following instead,
When you are moved to the wrong field, tab back to the actual check  box.  Use the numpad insert numpad plus command once on the check box.  You will hear check if it is unchecked.  Then shift tab to the button and use the double click command, NVDA insert NVDA enter issued very quickly the same command you have been using.  That works, or it did the two times I tested it.

the minor correction is that at times, issuing what I'm calling the double click command only once works with other check boxes.

This way seems to work.  It may sound involved but it may sound a lot more involved than it is.  I hope it works for you.  I did this using my Windows 7 machine, Firefox and NVDA.  You can see if it works on your system with whatever browsers you want to try.

It appears I figured out how to get the check boxes to check and uncheck, but I don't understand why this works and why another thing doesn't work.  Try the following:
Tab around and be on something you want to check.  Turn off browse mode.  You will find a button and a check box, both for the same thing.  If you use keyboard commands, nothing will happen. 
You will find that if you are on a check box, using the default action command, numpad insert numpad enter, you will hear check if the box is unchecked and uncheck if the box is checked.  However, if you then look at the state of the check box, you will find it unchanged. 

Instead, work with the button associated with the check box, which is a shift tab back from the check box.
Use the same command, numpad insert, numpad enter. 
Issue the command twice quickly, as though you were double clicking a mouse.  Check the check box by tabbing once to it.  This doesn't work the first time, at least not usually.  Shift back to the button and Issue the double click command again and check.  If that doesn't work, issue it a third  time, going back to the button to issue the command every time.  This usually works for me after the second or I think sometimes the third time I issue the command.

As you tab, after you have checked whatever you want, you will find a button that says cannot find a time.  Press the space bar on it and a dialog will come up to fill in your name and e-mail address. Fill in both fields and tab to the appropriate button.  I don't recall what it says but use it to submit the form.

I noticed on one of the fields in this form that when I would double click the button, it moved me to a completely different field, moving me backward.  but if I kept tabbing back to the right button and double clicking it, after a number of times, the check box was checked. 

This is such a ramshackle way of doing things because of the odd now it works and now it doesn't nature of what is occurring that all I can say is these methods or about these methods work when I try them on this form.  You may find you need to experiment but I'm not at all sure anything else works. 

While this is hardly ideal, it seems to let you do what you want in filling out such a form.  I have no idea if you can create one successfully.
