Re: sync thing is it good

Sarah k Alawami
 

Hello, go to tffppodcast.com/listen and look for the blog post on syncthing. It's 100 percent accessible and very easy to use. 
 The interface changed the last time I wrote the blog post but I love the program. You have to exchange details wiht the person you want to share the folder with but I like this better.
Take care

Re: Necessary training to write a screen reader?

Didier Colle
 

Dear Mike,


In this article http://tvraman.github.io/emacspeak/manual/Emacspeak-At-Twenty.html#Emacspeak-At-Twenty you might read a similar story for emacspeak (thus not NVDA).


It appears that he had the very kernel of emacspeak running in only 4 hours.

As mentioned by someone else a screen reader is just another program, that you should be able to develop with the concepts you learn in a cs education.

Diving into accessibility and other APIs is the starting point, then you start with a very small core of the thing that can do basic stuff and from there on you grow it further to a real product (which takes manyfolds of the effort and time that goes in the very basic core of your product).


Kind regards,


Didier

Hi,

 

When I read about how NVDA was born by a blind developer starting and writing it back in 2006, where do you think he would have even gotten the training to write a screen reader? I know that one would not get this from college alone. College may teach the fundamentals of Computer Science with an introduction to some specialized topics like security and cryptography, image processing, networking, and multimedia, but writing a screen reader has to be a highly complex undertaking. I am not looking to write one, but am intrigued by NVDA’s history.

 

Thanks,

Mike

Ok, I'm getting it now! Thanks for the correct address. You are right--it is a very very slow server--must be on dial up on their end but at least I should have it in a couple hours.

Spaces are perfectly valid in web addresses.

The problem with them is that most email clients and similar applications
can't tell whether the space and the next word are still part of the address,
or if the address has finished and the next word is just a word, so therefore
spaces are often converted to %20 so that the entire address string is
continuous.

Typing an address, complete with spaces, into a web browser, however, is
perfectly valid.

The fundamental problem being discussed in this thread is in fact that someone
fairly early on posted a URL which doesn't work.

http://123.206.102.220/NVDA%20plugin%20community%20activities.7z

is the correct URL and works, although very very slowly.

Re: question

Giles Turnbull
 

I think I need to install the cardboard sheet method Brian suggests, because I cannot find any system setting or notification area icon relating to my touchpad.

I use an Asus gaming laptop and, reading posts from Asus forums it seems others have been frustrated by not being able to de-activate their touchpads.

Anybody else with an Asus laptop found a way to deactivate their touchpad? I'd love to know! :)

Re: WebAim Screen Reader User Survey #7: Getting The Word Out About NVDA

Bhavya shah
 

Hi Joseph,
While I agree with what you are trying to convey, I do sincerely
believe that NVDA usage shares are sometimes underrepresented due to
limited disemination of this survey within the NVDA community (which
consists of people from Asia, Africa and South America, regions less
active in the context of such surveys). While I acknowledge that my
wording of this mail may have been of a promotional nature, I would
like to reiterate that our core intent in filling surveys like
WebAim's screen reader user survey should be to provide more data
about the AT industry to interested parties so as to make it more
reflective of the actualities. Having said that, I would highly
encourage users of NVDA as well as other Desktop and mobile screen
readers to participate enthusiastically in such surveys on their own
volition.
Thanks.

Subject: [nvda] WebAim Screen Reader User Survey #7: Getting The Word Out
About NVDA

Dear all,
Since almost a decade, WebAim, a non-profit web accessibility consultancy
organisation, has been conducting an annual (sometimes
biennial) survey, which, as its name implies, attempts to gather statistics
about the usage share of different screen readers, technology (particularly
Internet) accessibility trends, etc. so as to aid analysts, researchers,
accessibility consultants, sighted developers, and mainstream companies to
get a quantified picture of the state of the AT industry.
While this survey features participation from varied geographies, NVDA’s
user base, at least in my personal view, has always been understated. While
8% respondents of the first December 2008 WebAim survey reported to be NVDA
users, this figure has only increased to 14% of respondents in its 2015
counterpart claiming to use NVDA as their primary screen reader and 41%
using it commonly, a usage share substantially lower than NVDA’s commercial
and more expensive screen reading alternatives.
I think it would be a great way of playing our tiny part in getting the word
out about NVDA’s viability and competency if all NVDA community members,
users, testers and other related parties, particularly from second and third
world developing regions which often remain silent for such surveys but
where free and open source NVDA makes a prominent impact, take this survey
and contribute to letting the world know about the size and standing of the
NVDA user base.
The URL of said survey is https://webaim.org/projects/screenreadersurvey7/
.
It took me about ten minutes to fill this survey and the form was extremely
accessible. Not only from an NVDA angle, but filling such surveys always
brings out useful and reflective data, which, in turn, betters AT as a
whole. Therefore, I urge everyone to take some time out for this survey so
that we can make the data truly reflective of the actualities.
Thanks.
P.S. I am in no way affiliated to WebAim nor is my intention to merely
promote this survey.

Re: hot key not working

Chris Mullins
 

Hi Don
I t could be that it clashes with some other software. You could always change it to something else, say v that being the next letter of nvda. Open the properties of the nvda icon, tab to the shortcut key field, press v only, the ctrl+alt will be automatically inserted by windows, tab to OK and press enter. Now try restarting nvda using ctrl+alt+v.

When I look at the NVDA Icon properties it shows that control alt n is the shortcut key to start NVDA. However when I try to start NVDA with that key combination I am taken to the task bar and NVDA does not load.
Any clues? The NVDA keyboard layout is set to laptop as it does not have a number pad. I did try it in the desktop mode and got the same results.

Re: Necessary training to write a screen reader?

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Well a look at how windows code exposes data for such purposes is probably where you start from then if you know this, making some kind of program to interact with them. I think you need to be able to program in at least one of the well known C compilation front ends and of course this in itself needs to be accessible using another screenreader, maybe Jaws.
Then you need a semi compiled scripting language to join all the bits up and to make decisions about which bits of the API use for what and went etc.
I started far too late in this to be any good at it, but I do also think some people have a natural gift for it, ie they can think in the logic needed to make it work before actually writing it.

I mean back in the 80s I could write basic and small routines in z80 assembler but in no way could I have written a game by hand in those days as some quite obviously did. they had a gift of thinking that way.

Subject: [nvda] Necessary training to write a screen reader?


Hi,

When I read about how NVDA was born by a blind developer starting and writing it back in 2006, where do you think he would have even gotten the training to write a screen reader? I know that one would not get this from college alone. College may teach the fundamentals of Computer Science with an introduction to some specialized topics like security and cryptography, image processing, networking, and multimedia, but writing a screen reader has to be a highly complex undertaking. I am not looking to write one, but am intrigued by NVDA's history.

Thanks,
Mike

Spaces are perfectly valid in web addresses.

The problem with them is that most email clients and similar applications
can't tell whether the space and the next word are still part of the address,
or if the address has finished and the next word is just a word, so therefore
spaces are often converted to %20 so that the entire address string is
continuous.

Typing an address, complete with spaces, into a web browser, however, is
perfectly valid.

The fundamental problem being discussed in this thread is in fact that someone
fairly early on posted a URL which doesn't work.

http://123.206.102.220/NVDA%20plugin%20community%20activities.7z

is the correct URL and works, although very very slowly.


Antony.

You cannot have spaces in web addresses though, can you? I was thinking
this too but decided it has to be something like underscore or something
else. brian

Replace %20 by space.

I just tried this and the link appears to be totally dead!! By this, I
mean it doesn't even try to open a browser at all let alone give me a
page not found error or anything--it just says visited after I choose it
but then just sits there. What's wrong?

Yes cos space is not a valid seperator in web addresses. Also the fact that its a number not a name is probably also a problem as in effect you are bypassing the nameserver look up for the site and many sites do not like you to enter by trying to get at pages without going in via a known route.

I just tried copying the link into Firefox and then deleted both the %20 and replaced them with a space. Result: 404 Page not found.
