Re: IMPORTANT: Clock and Calendar add-on is abandoned and end of support, no plans for future releases, use alternatives

I used to use  clock addon so that nvda automatically announces the current time after each 15 minutes. What alternative addon or app can I use for the same purpose?


Re: Update On My Incompatible Add-Ons

Exiting nvda and turning on has no effect on addons. addons are still showing incompatibility.

when the speech history add-on will be available for NVDA 2022.1

Eduardo Fermiano Luccas
 

NVDA 2022.1 arrived today, so I decided to send a message to the add-on leader asking him to update the add-on to 2022.1, but I couldn't find his email, so I decided to send it here in the group

So I just got a reply from Codefactory, to a ticket regarding compatibility with NVDA 2022.1 that I submitted way back in April. Below is their response:
Good morning,
We are aware that a breaking NVDA update was released today.
We've been working on the addon, but unfortunately our update will take a few more days to complete.
Thank you for your patience.

Hi:

 

I figure they were working on it.

 

I have to admit I have not been reading everything that came across the list, so there may have been posted some kind of warning about this issue.

 

Regardless, this is not a showstopper for me.

 

I am sure NVDA developers had a good reason for the changes that were made, and NVDA’s advantages outweigh any temporary loss of convenience.  Choice is a good thing, and NVDA gives us one more choice.

 

Actually, the thing I like the best about NVDA is that the screen review method is a little similar to the old DOS screen reader ASAP, and that was my number one go-to in my DOS days.  I still have my copy of ASAP and pull it out whenever I access a DOS program.

 

I’ll keep checking CodeFactory’s Web site.

Re: Whether or not recommending new NVDA user to set Capslock as NVDA key

Chris Mullins
 

Hi

I always set Caps Lock as an NVDA modifier Because as a touch typist, it is more convenient to have a modifier key on each side of the keyboard to facilitate command entry.   For the same reason, I always get an external keyboard with 2 Windows keys.  

 

I rarely type in all capitals so the double press of the Caps Lock to engage capital input is not an issue as using the shift key is not difficult.

 

Cheers

Subject: [nvda] Whether or not recommending new NVDA user to set Capslock as NVDA key

 

Hi all,

 

I would like to ask for your opinion.

 

Some new NVDA users, including desktop and laptop owners, will ask for

my opinion on whether they should set the Capslock as the NVDA key.

 

With regard to desktop and laptop environment, the logic that I have

provided them are as follows:

 

1. setting Capslock key as NVDA key, you have to press the key two times

in order to input capital letters. But if you have to frequently press

the Capslock key to type capital letters, then setting Capslock key as

NVDA key will not be a good option.

 

2. setting Capslock key as NVDA key, you have one more option of NVDA

key, which you can choose from using the Capslock key or Insert key as

the NVDA key. But if you do not set Capslock as NVDA key, you will most

probably have to limit to pressing Insert key (laptop) or Insert key or

Numpad 0 (desktop).

 

 

How would you advice new NVDA users if they own a desktop or laptop

regarding this issue? thanks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Re: Whether or not recommending new NVDA user to set Capslock as NVDA key

Eduardo Fermiano Luccas
 

it's up to the user's preference, he will decide if he wants one key or another. the computer is his, so he must know how to choose what is best for him
but anyway I think it would be better to leave all keys enabled, you never know when you will have a problem with these keys

Em seg., 23 de mai. de 2022 às 02:01, Shaun Everiss <sm.everiss@...> escreveu:

Well its prefference.
I mean I like the capslock as modifier key because of its central location.
And I set all my boxes like that but insert on my laptop is not in the
right place and I have got used to it.
Caps lock is always in the same place.
Of course if you need to use caps a lot then maybe not no rule its
user experience.

Re: for the third time, filling out a PDF

Dave Grossoehme
 

Sorry I'm late on this information.  However, it would sound like something is hanging up the response of NVDA and Adobe to tell the user that the application is being loaded.  I have questioned this action being a problem when using Windows 11, but is this a UAI Problem, or something with NVDA or Adobe?

Well, when I open the form Bob gave the link for, I eventually end up having it act just like any random web form would in terms of tabbing through the form fields.  There are also a number of checkboxes to indicate a given piece of equipment in the list has been returned and these are on the second page of the form.

But note well, I said "eventually."  I can't make any sense of what's going on, and am not getting any useful status either from Adobe or from NVDA with regard to whether there is background processing going on by the Accessibility Wizard to hand information to NVDA that it would not otherwise have.  But whatever is happening it is NOT fast.  I can play around for at least 1 minute, possibly somewhat longer, whether via point and click or using tab to move among the various fields.  Then, after waiting for a while, suddenly tabbing between the fields gives the field label, including the colon that's a part of each label, when you land in the various fields.

Very strange.  No rational person would expect a lag like this between opening a document and being able to use it with a screen reader sans any sort of warning that they needed to wait for something to finish before they start.

should I keep these add ons

ken lawrence
 

Hi list as of the 22.1 update team talk and winamp add ons are disabled. Any timeline on when these will be updated?  Also will the add on updater alert me to new updated versions of them?  Not really a problem the basic winamp functions are still there and teamtalk is still working so went ahead with the update.  Will the updater alert me to new versions even though the add ons are disabled.
