you can do this in privacy settings.

Sending text to braille display programmaticaly.

Dariusz Mikułowski <dariusz.mikulowski@...>
 

Hello All!

I am new member of this group and at the beginning I would like to say Good after none for all.

I have a question about writing python scripts. I have an application which has a few controls that are not visible for nvda. There are not typical textboxes. I would like to write a script connected with this application that takes a piece of the text from the text window and send it to braille display via NVDA. I have found a python function braillemessage but when I am sending text using this it disappear after few seconds. I want send a message to braille display instantly so this function is not good for me. My concept is exploring a objects tree, find my textbox, take text from it and send it to braille display but I don’t know well how do this. I have found somewhere an python example that manipulates of braille regions but I can’t not find it now because it was a few month ago. Please help me if somebody is a good programmer of python scripts for nvda!

 

Best regards

Darek.

Hi,


Yep, I already did all of that. If I open the settings again it still shows the password check box checked.


Any other ideas?

Re: entering data in Firefox

 

Brian,

            It's not that I doubt what you, or others, have been saying but unless someone can give steps to reliably replicate a problem or websites on which it is reliably replicated it's going to be well-nigh-impossible to fix.

            I'm having no problems with NVDA 2016.3 and Firefox 49.0.1, which really makes it impossible for me to figure out any possible solution unless I can replicate an issue.

            What follows, and I've offered it before, is general advice:  If/when you start getting weird behaviors in any web browser it's a very good idea to clear all browser cache.  It doesn't solve all problems, but cache corruption triggers many bizarre issues and clearing it at least eliminates cache corruption as a possible cause.

Re: entering data in Firefox

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

Please read my comments. There is something odd going on with firefox but its rather difficult to explain. It is all crossposting to the dev list I think so maybe somebody over there can actually make sense of the weird effects. My brain hurts, but the fact is menus vanish and apparently unavailable restore menu choices do work and occasiionally one has to fiddle with things in firefox to get the page to act as it should. This is not as bad in the release version of the latest nvda but is pretty obvious in the next snaps.

I'm going to have a play over the next few days but if anyone can find the underlyying cause, it might fix some of the odd effects others have been reporting of late as well. I have duplicated it in windows 7 as well, but not tried it with xp yet.

Also next does have issues with focus mode or rather when you go in and out of it with errors on windows 7, but not sure if they are real errors that matter or merely just reported ones that just seem to occur from time to time.

I'm off to rest my braincell now.

The version of firefosx in use is50 b1.
I've tested with nvda master last but one and the release version and next the lattter is installed the others portable.

Nasrin,

I doubt that anyone would make the claim that you cannot use previous versions of either NVDA or of Firefox.

The fact remains that it is a very, very, very bad idea to use a very old and unsupported version of any web browser. It really is just asking for trouble. Security patches are one of the primary reasons for ongoing development in the web browser world and the threats change constantly. Using an old browser leaves you wide open to a number of identified threats that have long ago been patched if you're keeping your browser(s) up to date.

Re: Remote Access Download

P. Otter
 

yes, it is very easy.
goto http://www.nvdaremote.com
there you can download it if you enter on it, choose open then it will be opened by nvda.
nvda asks you if you want to install this add-on.
press on yes then it will install it.
after that you have to restart nvda then all is done.
after this, you can open it, you can find it under extra.
press connect there you find client, keep that setting.
under it you can tell if you wish to controll another machine or this machine will be controlled by another machine.
then address, there you can fill in, nvdaremote.com.
the password you choose has to be the same as on the other machine.
now you can connect and all is done.
it works great!!!!!

Re: browser not keeping passwords and ids

Gene
 

If you are saying you don't use book marks and always type addresses, unless you are trying to keep completely private from others who have access to your computer what sites you have visited, there is no point.  It is true that not having your passwords remembered is good for security and there are programs you can use that encrypt your passwords so you can store them and they will not be able to be determined by hackers.  But unless you want to keep anyone who has access to your computer from knowing any sites you have visited, there is no point in not using book marks.

Hi,

Today I tried to log in to our government applications site using NVDA
2016.3 and Firefox 40.0.1 under Windows 10
Here is the url:
https://www.publicjobs.ie/publicjobs/

There are three edit boxes: a search area and then a user name and a
password edit box. Normally, using Firefox, I simply tab to the user name
and press enter to type in the user name. When I went to it this morning,
the edit box sound played as I opened the user name box but I could not type
anything in the box. When I pressed tab to come out of the box, nothing
happened. All I could do was to press escape to bring me back to browse mode
and close the box. I even pressed the sign in button in hopes that I had
entered the user name and password even though I could not monitor that
action, but, again, the button did not react.

I switched over to Internet explorer and pasted in the above url. This time
NVDA reported the usual edit boxes for search user and password and each
opened correctly and echoed my typing. I was able to successfully enter the
user page and continue with my work.

Can anyone explain what has happened to Firefox lately? I am finding this
inertia quite a lot recently. By the way, I have not added anything to
Firefox for the past three months.

Re: trouble downloading add on

There is a folder called Downloads specifically for this purpose. You can set your browser to always use this folder (certaininly in IE, Firefox and Google Chrome)and it appears in the list of folders you can put on your start menu in Windows 10, so you always know where files of this type are.

Hi Gene:

I have never thought of saving those files to my desktop. It definitely would be a lot easier to find them their than searching through all the folders in my hard drive. I would just have to remember to move them off of the desktop and store them in another folder when I am finished with them so the desktop doesn't get too cluttered.

Hi


Is that from off the main add on page? that is where the add ons are
but link to another page where the add on is. You will need to go to
that page to get it.


There will be a stable version of it as well as a developers version.


Depending which browser you are using you could try any of the following.


While on the link you can use the letter K to jump down to the stable
version then either press the enter key on it. It then might give you
the option to open or save it. in most cases you would save it to some
where easy to locate it on your pc. for example desktop. Then you
would locate the add on press the enter key on it and say yes to it 2 times to install it.


Or the other way is while on the link, use the context key in either
internet exploder or mozilla fire fox arrow down to either save target
as in internet exploder or save link as in mozilla fire fox thenpress
the enter key.

The dialogue box will come up so you can save the add on to your pc.
Make sure you note where you are saving the add on to. for example the
desk top, then locate it after it is on the desktop then press the
enter key on it to install it.

say yes to it 2 times for it to be installed.


hope this helps.
