Sarah,

 

This is the second message you've said came through in another languages - it's in English for me, and NVDA reads it in English just fine.  I'm trying to think what the issue you are hitting could be  - I would have assumed even if you had somehow set Outlook to use another language, it still wouldn't automatically translate messages, just the interface (much like if you set NVDA's interface language to another language, it only changes how NVDA's menus are presented and NVDA messages and words are spoken - not for instance the text of an email.

I thought we had an issue for this, but I can't find it just now.  These content controls on the developer ribbon have always been problematic in one way or another (and if not in entering them, then in filling in the forms they create).

 

So the other part of this is - what are you trying to make?  Word is likely not the best solution for creating something like a form you want people to fill in like this.  Something like Google forms are popular for online survey type forms.  For something you want people to be able to either fill out on the PC, or print out, use a regular, ordinary table:

 

- Have two columns where the cell in the left column is the label ("name", "address", etc), and the right column is where you type your response

- For longer responses, have a full table-width cell with the label ("Please explain why you want to go to Mars?") and a full table-width cell below that to enter the response.

 

A table like this can be printed and filled in by pen, or you can tab through the table and fill in details as appropriate, and it will work for just about everyone.

Re: edge and gmail

 

Yes, truth is after I restart nvda I can login just fine, something seems to trip up speech causing nvda to freeze at least 3 stacks, but edge itself is not crashed just nvda.

A restart of nvda will have me able to continue to login my session though so its not a big issue.

Sadly, microsoft sites I used to use have completely gone away from explorer including weather as of this week and my version of firefox will not run them so I am stuck to using either chrome or edge and microsoft keeps wanting me to use edge no matter what I use so edge is what I use for microsoft things right now.

Its fine if I don't login but still.

If I restart nvda it will work, and edge itself hasn't crashed but I do
need to restart nvda then edge will work as normal.

Re: SECURITY FEATURES

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Heaven,

Others have already put forward the main points, as well as the link to our corporate and government page: https://www.nvaccess.org/corporate-government/

We specifically addressed this concern on that page for basically the reasons you have outlined.  I would also point out the "Open Source" section on that page and the links to both the UK and the US government policies promoting the use of open source software.  I only picked those as the governments of two major countries.  in fact, since you mention South Africa, I would direct you to the South African Government's own Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) policy, which not only promotes the use of Open Source software, the first point of the revised policy states:

"The South African Government will implement FOSS unless proprietary software is demonstrated to be significantly superior. Whenever the advantages of FOSS and proprietary software are comparable FOSS will be implemented when choosing a software solution for a new project. Whenever FOSS is not implemented, then reasons must be provided in order to justify the implementation of proprietary software."


Obviously that policy is only binding to government departments, but it is a pretty strongly worded, official endorsement of open source software.

With regard to the specifics of NVDA itself, it should be noted that it has very little internet connectivity (essentially just to check for updates - and the details of the information shared are on our corporate page previously linked to) - and if you are still concerned, you can run NVDA in secure mode AND block it's ability to access the internet, and the only single thing that will change is that the program won't be able to check for updates (and this fails silently, there is no error or nag about it).

If you (or any of the companies you approach) do have any further concerns, please feel free to raise them here or contact us at info@...

Kind regards

Dear List

 

Could one of the developers please contact me regarding the following queries:

 

  1. JAWS fanatics often reference the fact that JAWS has a closed source, paid licence, as the main reason for its increased security, especially in the workplace.  As NVDA is open source, many companies are scared to use it, since they are afraid of the security risks involved with opensource licences.  How do NVDA developers make sure that the source code for NVDA is secured so that hackers cannot attach trojans or viruses, etc to it.
  2. How do the developers make sure that information, such as personally identifiable information used in call centres and health institutions, is not at risk when using NVDA?

The reasons why I am asking these questions are as follows:

 

  1. I love using NVDA on my home computer and would really encourage anyone to use it with all the features it offers without a yearly over-priced subscription.
  2. I need to recommend screen reading software to some companies in South Africa who are scared of the risks involved in installing open source software.
  3. NVDA has so many more languages that it supports with braille and speech, while JAWS is quite limited. Furthermore, NVDA is simpler to use than JAWS and I would love to see it being implemented in more companies since it is free and legal, preventing companies from resorting to illegal software.

Thank you for your help

I was wondering why in some cases it was reporting the heading correctly
I was on in some web pages as it was where the link was in the heading
and in another case where there was no link in the heading it did not
for example it would read what ever it was last focused on.

Re: I think it's time to think about an add-on for Zara

Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

Brian, Sara and all,
This is the same program I wrote to the list about on Christmas eve.
The list of issues remains the same as I wrote then, with a few
updates and clarifications. The issues are as follows:
1. There are buttons at the bottom of the window for
scheduling events, adding jingles, changing the playlist mode, and
checking/unchecking the talk-over box. None of these buttons are
accessible with the keyboard. The playlist mode is not a huge issue,
but its default appears to be repeat when I would like it in normal
mode. I can get around this by putting a stop command at the end of
the playlist, but I'd rather not have to remember to do this every
time I create a playlist. The talk-over option is accessible in the
tools menu, but if you're in a live situation, it would sound much
better to have a one-keystroke combination to uncheck the talk-over
box. My friend also discovered by accident that control+P plays only
the item currently selected in the playlist, making this a workaround
for not being able to add jingles to the section dedicated for that
purpose, but it could also mean that you can't call up a sound bite on
the fly. As for event scheduling, I discovered after reading the
manual again that Zara does have the ability to do some things either
via EXE program or bat file at the command line, but there doesn't
appear to be any documentation on what commands are supported or how
to use them. I have no idea whether scheduling events is something
that could be written into a batch file, but this is the one thing I
can't find any sort of workaround for.
2. When the playing Zara window has focus, NVDA speaks an endless
series of percentages, which Joseph and I theorized was a volume
meter. In any case, this makes Zara very difficult to work with when
it is playing.
3. In playlists, NVDA doesn't read what the playlists are for. Joseph
indicated that table commands could be used to navigate tracks in
these lists, which I will have to review and see what I can get out of
them. The problem I have with NVDA is that it reads each individual
track just fine, but I have to switch to System Access in order to get
the length of the playlist or that the other list is for upcoming
events. Joseph, in your testing, did you try adding audio, then using
table commands to determine total playlist length or that the other
list was for events? NVDA does read each track's name and length, but
does not read the total length of the playlist that I can determine.
4. This is something I hadn't tested when I wrote my original message,
but decided to test it the other night and is why in my first reply I
asked about break notes in Station Playlist. With Zara, you can add a
text file to the list, and when it gets to that point in the list, a
window is supposed to pop up with the contents of that file. If I had
not read the manual though, I would have no clue what the purpose of
adding a text file to a playlist would be. In Station Playlist and
presumably more expensive systems, break notes can be inserted. These
are text notes, that are supposed to do what I described with Zara so
that the DJ can read them live. I suspect that with the type of
broadcasting many on this list do that wouldn't be used much anyway,
but it's worth an ask.
5. Another thing I hadn't thought to test yet but I have since, is
that the DTMF detector doesn't show up when navigating the options
tree view with NVDA. I was hoping to try and simulate a satellite feed
using multiple sound devices on my computer but was running into a
bunch of other issues that are way off topic for this list as well.
My friend Jake seemed to think that Zara wasn't being developed
anymore. I have no proof one way or the other, but with the exceptions
of product manuals, they've taken down all support documentation and
so far do not respond to contact requests. I hope this answers any
questions.

There is an add-on called Exquilla, that will let Thunderbird communicate flawlessly with an exchange server. I know this, because I use it. I am the biggest outlook hater in the world! Sorry to those who love it. If you have anymore questions, feel free to drop me an email.

Dear All!


I need for my work outlook 365, but they are some messages, that are not shown correctly, it shown, that they were in one line. Can somehow make more accessible outlook? Or can I accepts invitations, which were sent from outlook with thunderbird?

Thanks!

Re: reporting of element with nvda + tab key

I doubt the problem has anything to do with the command and there is no such setting. You are probably on a web page where the underlying page isn't aligned properly withh browse mode. That happens on some sites. Try a number of sites.

Subject: [nvda] reporting of element with nvda + tab key

Hi guys


Say if I jump down to a heading on a web page you hear nvda speak it
out. But if I hit the nvda key + tab key it reports some thing else on
the screen and not the name of the heading I landed on.


I know I can route the focus to where the heading is butand have it
spoken out but if I hit the nvda key + tab key it reports something else.


I know before it would report the focused element it was on before I
just can not remember the setting or shortcut to fix the problem has any
one got a idea.


I know when I find out it is going up on the website just in case some
one else has the same problem like I mentioned.

Hi

The original problem was that the default browser had been changed to Chrome as you described.  This action does not change the default app for .htm and .html, so when NVDA user guide was opened, it still used Edge.

 

Cheers

Hi.  I checked the settings for filetypes, and the htm and html files are set to open in Edge, and are mentioned as Edge files.  I can't find a filetype for Chrome, which is the browser that some web-based documentation (including the NVDA user guide) has opened in.  When I uninstalled Chrome, they opened in Internet Explorer.  I reinstalled Chrome, and the documentation went back to opening there.  I won't fiddle around with the filetypes without knowing what I'm doing.

Thanks,

Louise

When typing in edit boxes, NVDA does not speak the characters I type
Even when typing in a text editor it does not speak as I type.
How can I make it speak as I type?
