Re: NVDA not giving accurate feedback

 

Are you sure you're on screen review mode?
If I have this enabled I simply can't read the screen properly. It just keeps jumping around the screen and happily landing on where it thinks it's nice to.

Re: How in the world do I select from this list?

Gene
 

It may not be possible.  I'm not sure what the edit box is supposed to show, but my guess is that it shows your selection after you make it.  So if you try to select something in the list, then shift tab back to the edit field and see nothing, either selection must be done differently or it can't be done.  What is the address of the page you are working with:?  No one can answer the question properly without looking at the site.  Any answers may or may not be correct because the person can't check.  And there may be some way to do this that won't be evident until people play with the site.

Using Firefox, I'm on a website with a form. In the part where I'm
supposed to fill in my birth date, there's something like an edit box,
that appears to have a selection list accompanying it. When NVDA
encounters the edit box, it just says "read only" which presumably
means I can't type into it. But further down, or when I press tab,
NVDA says "list" so I should be able to select from a list. But that's
all it says: "list" and nothing more. There's no speaking of items in
the list from which I could select. All three fields for month, day
and year are like this. How do I accomplish this?



Re: Minimum Specs for NVDA with Other Intensive Applications

Gene
 

I don't think whether you have an SSd or not has to do with lag when typing letters and hearing them.  This sort of thing is done in RAM.  The disk drive isn't consulted with every letter typed.  Also, some programs may have longer lags than others for reasons I don't know.  We don't know the e-mail program you were using.  In addition, we don't know anything about the power of the two computers nor anything else about how they compare nor whether you are using the same screen-reader and synthesizer.  I use Via Voice and NVDA and if I type quickly , I don't hear letters.  If I slow down, I hear them.  My estimate is that there is about an eighth second lag between the time I type a letter and the time I hear it and this machine, not a fast one, doesn't have an SSD drive.

Good Afternoono:  I was working with a computer that didn't have a ssd in it a year ago.  My experience was I had to wait between letters when write a message in a emaikl message.  When reading anything my wait time between words was as much as 5 to 10 seconds between words.  In that years time you have seen a lot difference.  I'm using nvda in my computer.  My sighted son could even see 1 to seconds between words when reading anything, no matter how much memory the program took up.  You can go
Onto the web and find referbished computers.  I can tell you that a lot of the market has gone to SSD.

That is a general statement and is not correct if you run a synthesizer that is not computer intensive.  I don't know how much more work it is to run an intensive synthesizer but because of slower response time while working with one, many blind people run a very responsive synthesizer such as Eloquence for actual working with the computer.  They use one of the newer more intensive synthesizers for listening to things where they will be just listening such as reading a book. 
 
A screen-reader when used with a synthesizer like Eloquence is not intensive.  I don't know whether an SSD increases responsiveness of the newer kind of synthesizer but my point is that you needn't buy a much more expensive machine to use a screen-reader as I've described.  If you do, and if you benefit from doing so when you use a more intensive synthesizer for everything, you then have to consider the extra money you spent on the computer as part of the cost of the synthesizer and it may be unreasonable.  I'm also not saying that getting a really fast computer would make newer synthesizers more responsive, I don't know.  I'm talking about cost/benefit.

Dear Noah & List:

Running a screenreader adds a fair bit of work to a PC as you have a software synthesizer. You could offload the work of speaking by using a hardware synthesizer such as a Doubletalk or Triple talk. Your laptop needs SSD not a mechanical hard disk with 8, 16 or 32 GB RAM. 32 GB is best if you plan to do video and/or audio editing & recording. The PC at your school may have as little as one GB RAM and a slow CPU. Giving the laptop adequate RAM ids, more important that high-performance CPU. Look for a laptop with a fast, but not necessarily Intel I8 speed. An Intel I5 or six CPU should work fine. You consume CPU cycles a lot if you do sound or video editing, recalculate mammoth spreadsheets and run many programs concurrently.
Web browsing is light work for a PC.
Download the Belarc Advisor from HTTPS://www.belarc.com. Run it on the problem computers at school. Lists the CPU chip, installed RAM, software licenses, everything worth knowing about the PC. Also gives information on the SSD or Hard Disk. Program is free for personal use.

I'd suggest updating TW Blue because certain API calls no longer work from Twitter because Twitter has shut them down and did a bunch of other things to put a strangle hold on their API. If you don't update TW Blue I fear you will start to have countless bugs. Also, TW Blue is developed by blind people so it will always remain accessible to NVDA and other screen readers. What I've been trying to figure out, partly for an investigative article and partly because I am curious, is, why window eyes was not released as open source after the company was bought out. Anyway, upgrade your TW Blue.

If you don't update TW Blue I fear you will start to have countless bugs. Also, TW Blue is developed by blind people so it will always remain accessible to NVDA and other screen readers. What I've been trying to figure out, partly for an investigative article and partly because I am curious, is, why window eyes was not released as open source after the company was bought out. Anyway, upgrade your TW Blue.

Hi.


Virtual recorder is one. Another is the rather interestingly named Cok
Free MP3 Recorder. It can record the microphone and system sound together.

Hi.

 

Normally I'd say don't use snapshots do to stability issues, but do to the missing features still in the release version I tend to want to recommend you run from the snapshot version. Mine is on version 11, I don't know if that means 1.1 or what.

There are two versions of TWBlue which are recent ones.
First version is the snapshot (download it from here).
The second version is the installable and you can download it from here.

Marcio,

           Send an e-mail to BlindLife+help@groups.io and you'll have as much (if not more) information as I remember.  It's a technology group, with a very broad definition of "technology," related to living with blindness or low vision.

Seconded.  This should be the first thing included in this sort of query if said page is not behind a login.

You can't fix what you can't reproduce.  Heck, sometimes you can't grasp exactly what's happening without trying it out yourself to see if you encounter the same issue.

As an aside, any time something like this occurs the first thing anyone should do as a diagnostic step is to try the same page with a different browser.  This often immediately isolates the source of the problem to either the browser or the screen reader, or at least gives some strong indications as to the root cause.

Re: How in the world do I select from this list?

 

Hi Clarissa,
Not sure if it will help somehow but...
Have you ever tried exploring these lists while in focus mode, arrowing up and down to see what happens?
Once I had something like this and I did it, that's what allowed me to choose one of the options I had.

Using Firefox, I'm on a website with a form. In the part where I'm
supposed to fill in my birth date, there's something like an edit box,
that appears to have a selection list accompanying it. When NVDA
encounters the edit box, it just says "read only" which presumably
means I can't type into it. But further down, or when I press tab,
NVDA says "list" so I should be able to select from a list. But that's
all it says: "list" and nothing more. There's no speaking of items in
the list from which I could select. All three fields for month, day
and year are like this. How do I accomplish this?
