Thank you Brian. It's really a visual language.

Thank you.

They originally had, as their intent, expressing emotions much as emoticons did and do.  However, the range has expanded to include so many that this can no longer be said to be the case.
Many are used as coded references to other things.  The infamous eggplant emoji being the most "commonly known" one.  Look it up.

Hi Marcio. When I visited the link in your first email, I came across a whole series of numbers and wondered if my computer was faulty. Further down the page, there was the explanation that clarified it all quite well. I have since read Chris's email and realise that the emoji is a numeric/graphical representation. It's all so cleaver and creative.

Thank you for your emails.

Cheers.

Hi Ian,
Don't feel bad, I don't really get it either. Honestly, I always thought that an Emoji and an emoticon were the same thing until a few hours ago.


Re: Intent of any post being misinterpreted

Ian Westerland
 

Hello Chris. Thank you. I know now what it is, but can't understand how a mood or emotion can be created using a series of dots. I'll work on it. It may be just one of those things that are purely visual. Anyway, I am one step ahead of my starting point before asking the question and that has to be good.

Cheers.

Need help with BrailleExtender

John J. Boyer
 

Hello,

My first attempt to hide dots 7-8 worked, but the side effects are unacceptable. The down arrow on the keyboard hides
oor shows the dots, but now I can't use menus, including the NVDA menus, unless I happen to remember the letter for an
option. How do i get out of this!? BrailleExtender seems to have its own configuration file.. Restarting NVDA doesn't
fix the problem. Neither does reloading BrailleExtender.

Thanks,
John

Which I already told you can be done, and is he first thing you land in as far as an edit box goes, when creating a bookmark.  Every browser acts this way, picking a default name based on the URL or webpage title, but allowing you to change it.

You can also rearrange your hierarchy at will, though that does require some use of keyboard commands for drag and drop if you intend to move large batches, such as those imported from another browser at install time, at once.

If you need to know how to do something please ask, and it's almost certain that someone here can and will tell you.

What irritated me is making assertions about Chrome, or any web browser, that anyone who's used web browsers for years knows is simply not so.

Chrome and Firefox both are highly accessible, as are most of the derivatives created by the code bases used for each of those.

Molly, going into the bios would possibly help w/an internal keyboard, but would have no effect on an external 1. This comment is not to be critical in any way. You just strike me as someone who wants to learn all they can, & I'm just trying to help you do that. The bios basically affects what's hooked up to the motherboard. Since an external keyboard generally is not, especially on a laptop, then the bios settings would have no effect. I hope that explains. Good call if the keyboard had been an internal 1, though.

Subject: [nvda] Fn Key Issues

Dear all,

I apologize for this not being strictly NVDA related, but more in
regards to adapting to a keyboard which poses unique challenges in the
issuance of NVDA key commands. I recently purchased an external
keyboard which was overall great value for money, apart from one pestiferous problem.

To emulate the Home, End, Page Up and Page Down functions, I need to
press the Function (Fn) key in conjunction with the arrow keys. This
is not atypical for me as I need to do this even on my built in laptop keyboard.
However, on my laptop, I am absolutely used to pressing Ctrl followed
by Function followed by right arrow for Ctrl+Home, whereas on this new
external keyboard, I need to hold down Function first, and then press
keys like Ctrl and right arrow. This is getting particularly
problematic since my brain is wired to use the Function key preceding
an arrow key only when I want to select an entire line or page as
opposed to holding down Function first and foremost, and then pressing
things like NVDA modifier+Shift+right arrow to read the status bar.

Is there any way - software settting or device setup or otherwise - by
which I can get this external keyboard to act similar to my laptop
keyboard, in that I need to press the Function key only before the
arrow keys or the key whose secondary function will be induced as
opposed to the first key in any multi-key combinaition?

I would greatly appreciate any assistance in this regard.

Thanks.

Please give examples of the terrible language I used in the last twenty-four hours.  Everyone is generalizing.  Everyone is saying I do this or that.  Twenty-four hours is one day ago.  If what I said is so terible, you should remember well enough to paraphrase it well. What did I say?  All I said was that if you assume something can't be done without asking on the list or consulting instructional material, you may have a lot of unnecessary problems.  I said this because someone made a number of statements about what Firefox can't do and those statements were wrong.  If he, or others, who assume that things can't be done because they haven't seen how to do them while looking at the program don't ask on lists or use instructional material because they assume these things can't be done, they may have a lot of problems because they don't use programs that would be to their advantage to use, perhaps to their significant advantage.  I didn't go into all that detail, but that was the meaning of what I said.  Show me what was wrong with that. 

 

I have said repeatedly in the past that if people write to me, I would discuss or consider what was said.  Not one person answered.  Now, people are making general statements and charges.  Not one example.  If you are frustrated, the thing to do is not to wait for months or more and finally unload at some point.  I can't address what no one brings up.  I can't respond to generalizations, you do this and that.  If people want me to change what I do, whether it is a valid criticism or not, I can't respond to generalizations.  I can respond to concrete examples, sent by people when something happens.  And the same on list.  When someone criticizes me on list, which is very seldom, it is usually not

specific. 

 

If I say I think something is the best way in too many messages in a thread, I'll see if I see myself doing so in the future.  This is the first time this criticism has been made, not that I do so in a first message, but that I send too many messages discussing why I think my way of doing something is better.  It is simply not fair nor reasonable to say I am unwilling to consider changing something if I hear nothing.  The only criticism I've heard perhaps from one or two people over years is that I say my way is the only way to do things.  I never do.  This is a different criticism and is a specific thing I can see if I do in future or that someone can point out to me if I do.

Hi,

Sorry, but this has nothing to do with you personally. At all.

 

What it has to do with is your lack of ability to understand where others are coming from, your lack of ability to change the way in which you come across.

 

Your actions in the last day have really spoken volumes. Your wording was horribly wrong (and dare I say even hurtful). It's as though you don't think before you send messages. As you say, there are a thousand people on this list with a thousand different levels of computer use. To give yet another example (and this is generally you on this list when someone is asking for help) you almost always assume that your way is the only way, that your method is the only method, that there is no other way in which to accomplish a task. So when someone comes up with a different method (that may be easier for some, but doesn't fit into your life), you find every available negative point to criticize that other method and continuously claim how yours is superior. It's frustrating beyond belief having someone continuously go on about how my method of doing something (for instance, creating a new folder), is wrong.

 

Again, this is not personal. We don't know you personally, we only know how you act on a mailing list. If you think that's personal, perhaps it's time to take a few steps back and stop moderating.

 

So there's my opinion. This were my mailing list you'd at the very least be on moderated status simply based on your actions of the last 24 hours.

Re: Great Description of Emoji /was/[nvda] Intent of any post being misinterpreted

Laurie Mehta
 

Hey Travis, thanks for sharing this! Also, thanks for sharing about your great and proactive family! It is encouragement for everyone.

One thing that I have also noticed about some emoji and the descriptors that are attached to them is that some of the actual visuals do not quite match what has been associated with them for us screen-reader users. One example is the emoji that we hear as "face with tears of joy" because sighted people describe it as a laughing face. Maybe Brian V. can comment?

more objects

smiling, frowning,
surprised, and so on), but many of them are just
normal objects as

emojis for

good at
creating emojis out of clay, and for a while, I had
several of

which ones were
which, since the faces were very similar.

For example, Look below my signature and NVDA should
tell you,
Smiling Smiley.
