Re: help with the volume mixer on windows 10

If  you type sndvol in the run dialog or in the Windows start menu and press enter, the volume control will open.  You don't have to decide which utility to use, you will be in the correct one and you can tab through the controls for the available applications.

Hi all,

 

For some weird reason I’m having issues with the volume mixer on windows 10.

 

Am trying to change the soundcard for 1 particular application and I just can’t seem to do it. I do have win 10 app essential’s installed and enabled.

 

Any ideas please?

 

Many thanks.

I just found out that you don't have to use object navigation to see the UBlock Origin button.  Firefox is properly accessible so if you are on the address bar and tab to save to pocket, you can right arrow through buttons until you get to the UBlock Origin button, which you can navigate with the space bar.

Still, many people may benefit by knowing at least a little about object navigation.

I use UBlock Origin )(spelling) to block ads.  If you move by object in the address bar in Firefox, you will find a UBlock Origin button.  If you activate it, UBlock Origin will open a dialog with settings for the specific site you are on.  You don't see these options when you are working with the general add-on settings in the add-ons section of the program.

It may be that a lot of people, perhaps most, won't be interested in these options but this is an example of how, in some programs, you can't do certain things without object navigation and in some programs it is necessary to use it to use the program to a meaningful extent.

As I said, depending on how people use a computer, they may not need or want to use object navigation but I am pointing out its usefulness and importance because I suspect a lot of people don't know the potential of using it.

Re: help with the volume mixer on windows 10

In addition to what I said in my previous message, it appears you don't have to have the audio playing.  It does appear that you have to have played at least a bit of audio in the application and then left it opened.  Open the application, play a bit of audio, then stop it if you wish. 
Open the volume control and tab through the fields.  You should see the application and its control.

Re: help with firefox and NVDA

I'm giving desktop commands.  I don't know the laptop ones.

To move forward by object, the command is numpad insert numpad 6.  To move back by object, the command is numpad insert numpad 4.  Try moving a number of times in both directions.

If you find the button, use the command numpad insert numpad enter to see if you can activate it in that way.  Numpad enter is the long key on the right row of the numpad at the bottom of the numpad.  There are two long keys and enter is the bottom one.  Plus is the long key above it.

Re: help with firefox and NVDA

The reason is that you are not in a web page, you are in the address bar.  Therefore, you are not in browse mode and quick navigation commands won't work.  If you type a letter, you will remove the address from the address bar and the letter b will be there.  When you are on highlighted text and type something, the highlighted text is removed and replaced by what you have typed.

"Allow microphone
To record Voice Messages, WhatsApp needs access to your computer’s 
microphone. Click  in the URL bar and set “Use the Microphone” to “Allow.”
OK, GOT IT"

When I hit f6 to go to the URL bar I only find the whatsapp web 
address, but no buttons to adjust the setttings for my microphone 
there. What is the NVDA command to reach to this area when I get such a message on firefox?

I hope those who use firefox and NVDA can help me with this one.

Regards,

Ibrahim

Not in this case. You must use tab from the address bar, or f6 sometimes works. The same will be true in chrome as well.

If it's a button can't you find it with the letter b or shift+b?

Hello folks,

I am trying to use the whatsapp web using the latest version of
firefox on a laptop running windows 10, last update. NVDA is my only
screen reader. I am using NVDA 2021.3.

When I try to send a voice message on whatsapp web using fire fox, I
get this message:

"Allow microphone
To record Voice Messages, WhatsApp needs access to your computer’s
microphone. Click in the URL bar and set “Use the Microphone” to “Allow.”
OK, GOT IT"

When I hit f6 to go to the URL bar I only find the whatsapp web
address, but no buttons to adjust the setttings for my microphone
there. What is the NVDA command to reach to this area when I get such a message on firefox?

I hope those who use firefox and NVDA can help me with this one.
