Hi guys


I had a phone call this morning from a local newspaper who came out to do
an interview out of the blue.
It is about the first person in New Zealand getting the NVDA expert
certification. I was a bit surprised, but pretty happy with the article
itself!

The article is about the certificate and some other NVDA related articles
and a little bit pointing towards the Accessibility Central website where
people can find more information on NVDA and other blindness related
topics.

So, hopefully NVaccess has some more hits coming their way as well as the
word getting out more about NVDA!

Re: Attention Windows 10 App Essentials users: pilot development channel, fall release requirements, legacy code being removed

 

hi joseph.
thanks for your great news for windows 10 users.
but i have a question.
is it impossible for nvda users to use nvda in windows ten without addon?
is there many major issues for someone who dont have addon?
i did not heard that iranian people who have windows ten, use windows
ten app essential.
i appreciate your clarification about this subject.

Dear NVDA community:



For those on NVDA users and add-ons lists: a few days ago I announced
Project Hidden Singer/Big Bang, a project to restructure code in Windows 10
App Essentials and say goodbye to old workarounds. This is partly motivated
by the fact that, with NVDA 2017.3, features from this add-on will make
their debut as part of the screen reader itself, so the add-on is no longer
required for some major tasks. The below announcement is just a first step
in this project, with the complete picture emerging by September 2017.



Announcement text:



As part of NVDA 2017.3, NV Access, together with Joseph Lee, a Windows
Insider and a noted NVDA expert in United States, have developed a set of
features designed to improve user experience for Windows 10 users using
NVDA. Prior to the upcoming release, an add-on called Windows 10 app
Essentials have included features such as sounds to indicate appearance of
search suggestions, announcing top search suggestion in braille and various
workarounds for Windows 10 and various universal apps. Joseph, the author
of
the Windows 10 App Essentials, is delighted to announce that these features
will be part of upcoming NVDA 2017.3, scheduled to hit the air sometime in
August 2017.



As part of this work, I (Joseph Lee) would like to announce three important
things:



1. A fall release of Windows 10 App Essentials add-on will require NVDA
2017.3. This will be in place no later than October 2017.
2. For those using NVDA snapshots (master and/or next), a new "pilot
development" channel will be introduced. You may occasionally hear
references to "try builds", "fast ring snapshots" and what not, but in
context of this add-on, it all refers to the pilot channel. This channel
will not show up in update channel list, as this channel is designed to
receive continuous feedback i.e. this channel requires NVDA snapshots.
Anyone using development channel of this add-on along with NVDA master or
next snapshots will be moved to this channel, as code in this channel parts
ways with compatibility layer code, as changes made to NVDA snapshots will
be reflected in these builds. If you are using Windows 10 App Essentials
development snapshots under NVDA stable (2017.2, for example), you'll stay
in development channel (sometimes called "slow ring") in order to preserve
compatibility layer routines.
3. Speaking of snapshot combinations: starting from June 28th
WinTenApps snapshot, those on pilot development channel will get a build
that is equivalent to NVDA next snapshots. This snapshot removes
compatibility layer in place for search suggestion announcement, as this is
no longer required if you are on latest master and/or next snapshots as
NVDA
itself will handle this for you.



Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Blog Post: Top 5 NVDA Tips and Tricks You Need To Know

 

hi.
i again tried to open with firefox without success.
i think its better to copy your tutorial in to email and send in the
group for everyone to read and copy easily.
also in document formatting, i unchecked many items which are checked
by default, including tables and items related to it, editor revision,
spelling error, lists, block quotes, landmark etc.
i wish that all of them were unchecked by default!

Hi,
Nasrin and Mohammadreza,
While I am glad that both of you have discovered means of accessing
the blog, I remain concerned about the fact that Wordpress isn't
considered secure in Iran. Do you have any alternatives you may like
to suggest in hopes of addressing/resolving this issue somewhat to a
limited extent from my end? What I am thinking is that if you could
follow the blog just once by going on to my blog's homepage
https://bhavyashah125.wordpress.com and inputting your e-mail address
in the given field. Once following, you will receive an e-mail copy of
the blog post in your Inbox itself, eliminating the need to even open
Wordpress. Let me know whether that is feasible/functional as a
work-around or not.

Gene,
I firmly agree that screen layout should be off by default, but NV
Access's current argument to support the current default state is that
the out-of-the-box experience NVDA desires to provide is one extremely
similar to how a sighted individual interacts with the computer, an
argument that I do not find sufficiently compelling, in my personal
opinion. I also somewhat agree that the defaults should be speech
feedback over sound feedback, but I guess that still is somewhat
debatable. Having said that, I don't think block quotes should be off
by default nor that settings should not be automatically saved by
default. Block quotes are judiciously used by web authors to make
citations or to apply slight emphasis, and automatic settings saving
is hardly a question in my mind.
Just to clarify though, I still recommend screen layout in Wikipedia
and its likes because a say all would be quite impractical when
intending to consume such huge chunks of data. Arrowing is the more
obvious navigation method, at least with respect to my experiences, to
slowly and steadily peruse a huge encyclopedic entry.

Pascal,
I doubt if the MS Word crash you describe has any pertinence to the
blog post contents themselves. Unfortunately, I have no ideas to share
in relation to what you highlight, but given that you have made a
plain Notepad text file as a container for the blog post, hope all
stays well.

Kevin,
Glad you unearthed one of those treasures located deep down in the NVDA
land...

Thanks.

Hi Gene:

I agree with most of your comments about defaults in NVDA, except for
the Block Quotes. I think that although most people may not need such
a thing, some people might, and if they were off, these people
wouldn't know that they are there.
Those of us who know how to turn them off can easily do so.

By the way, thanks for that blog post, I just learned about some
features that I didn't know even existed.

Reading is not affected. If you don't use read to end and down arrow
through the text, using screen layout may improve matters but it makes
no
sense for people to read in that way.

Screen layout, according to brief comments I saw in an e-mail list
discussion years ago may make web forums easier to navigate but I
strongly
believe that the other option, placing links and controls on their own
lines
should be the default. Which raises the question of how it's decided
what
defaults should be? Clearly, using sounds instead of audio
notification
of
browse or forms mode is not a good default, considering the number of
new
users who will have no idea what such sounds mean and who have enough
trouble learning everything else without having sounds where audio
notification would help far more in learning and reinforcement. Save
settings on exit should not be the default. While learning and
experimenting, users might accidentally save settings they have no
intention
of saving. Why are block quotes set to be spoken? Almost no one cares
about such arcane marks.

As I said, who decides these sorts of things. Defaults should be
determined
by the needs of inexperienced users. If long time users don't know how
to
change such settings, they might get some incentive to learn more about
the
program.

Re: An interesting suggestion for NVDA.

 

All those units are like this now.

Even mine is.

The only reason I like toshiba is that its bios is accessible from its own aplet.

Sadly I am unsure if any newer toshiba units continue to use amd hardware which is nice.

nvidia stuff can be good but is just that bit more querky to handle.

I guess I will have to go hp, hp do have amd quad cores, but I am not sure what soundcards they have.

I only need the crappy realtech one nothing more really but still.

In the old days one could alter a text file used at boot up to say things liik

Hi Florian,


If you setup NVDA to use the "Laptop" keyboard layout, it uses different keystrokes which don't expect a number pad. Some of the other regular keystrokes are different too, such as NVDA+a to read all (instead of NVDA+down arrow) and NVDA+l to read the current line (rather than NVDA+up arrow). Particularly see the following sections of the User Guide:


Object navigation: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#ObjectNavigation
Review cursor: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#ReviewingText


The other keys are scattered throughout the User Guide.



Regards


Quentin.

Hi everyone!
Do you know the functions of numpad keys? For example, Numpad5 Speaks
the word of the current navigator object where the review cursor is
situated. Pressing twice spells the word. Pressing three times spells
the word using character descriptions.
However, there is a problem. Some laptops such as laptops for gaming
don't have 2 home keys, 2 end keys and 2 page up and page down keys, or
they don't have a key for toggling the numlock on and off and they can
come with the numlock on as default, without providing the possibility
of its deactivation. What can you do in these situations?
Another question: Do you know the NVDA rotor that can be used with
NVDA+Control+arrows? Well, a member of Romanian community suggested the
adding of these functions to NVDA's rotor. What do you think about that?

Hi joseph

 

I am a single handedperson so to be able to use my laptop keyboard I need to use the sticky keys.  

 

My problem is that I am noticing that the sticky keys are interfering with the capslock, 

 

And the other problem is when I come for example to press the insert plus f12 twice to check the date it doesn’t work.

 

And that happens also with the other commands that we have to press them once, twice and more to do do certain things.

 

In my opinion the sticky keys are not working as they should with NVDA.

 

Can you please do something about it to be resolved?

 

I hope you will be able to understand what I mean.

 

Thanks in advance

Re: [attention to joseph lee, sticky keys with NVDA

anthony borg
 

Hi joseph

 

I am a single handedperson so to be able to use my laptop keyboard I need to use the sticky keys.  

 

My problem is that I am noticing that the sticky keys are interfering with the capslock, 

 

And the other problem is when I come for example to press the insert plus f12 twice to check the date it doesn’t work.

 

And that happens also with the other commands that we have to press them once, twice and more to do do certain things.

 

In my opinion the sticky keys are not working as they should with NVDA.

 

Can you please do something about it to be resolved?

 

I hope you will be able to understand what I mean.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Anthony

Dear NVDA community:

 

For those on NVDA users and add-ons lists: a few days ago I announced Project Hidden Singer/Big Bang, a project to restructure code in Windows 10 App Essentials and say goodbye to old workarounds. This is partly motivated by the fact that, with NVDA 2017.3, features from this add-on will make their debut as part of the screen reader itself, so the add-on is no longer required for some major tasks. The below announcement is just a first step in this project, with the complete picture emerging by September 2017.

 

Announcement text:

 

As part of NVDA 2017.3, NV Access, together with Joseph Lee, a Windows Insider and a noted NVDA expert in United States, have developed a set of features designed to improve user experience for Windows 10 users using NVDA. Prior to the upcoming release, an add-on called Windows 10 app Essentials have included features such as sounds to indicate appearance of search suggestions, announcing top search suggestion in braille and various workarounds for Windows 10 and various universal apps. Joseph, the author of the Windows 10 App Essentials, is delighted to announce that these features will be part of upcoming NVDA 2017.3, scheduled to hit the air sometime in August 2017.

 

As part of this work, I (Joseph Lee) would like to announce three important things:

 

  1. A fall release of Windows 10 App Essentials add-on will require NVDA 2017.3. This will be in place no later than October 2017.
  2. For those using NVDA snapshots (master and/or next), a new “pilot development” channel will be introduced. You may occasionally hear references to “try builds”, “fast ring snapshots” and what not, but in context of this add-on, it all refers to the pilot channel. This channel will not show up in update channel list, as this channel is designed to receive continuous feedback i.e. this channel requires NVDA snapshots. Anyone using development channel of this add-on along with NVDA master or next snapshots will be moved to this channel, as code in this channel parts ways with compatibility layer code, as changes made to NVDA snapshots will be reflected in these builds. If you are using Windows 10 App Essentials development snapshots under NVDA stable (2017.2, for example), you’ll stay in development channel (sometimes called “slow ring”) in order to preserve compatibility layer routines.
  3. Speaking of snapshot combinations: starting from June 28th WinTenApps snapshot, those on pilot development channel will get a build that is equivalent to NVDA next snapshots.

Indeed, but since it's only just happened, I wouldn't have expected them all

Attention Windows 10 App Essentials users: pilot development channel, fall release requirements, legacy code being removed

Re: Blog Post: Top 5 NVDA Tips and Tricks You Need To Know

Bhavya shah
 

Hi,
Nasrin and Mohammadreza,
While I am glad that both of you have discovered means of accessing
the blog, I remain concerned about the fact that Wordpress isn't
considered secure in Iran. Do you have any alternatives you may like
to suggest in hopes of addressing/resolving this issue somewhat to a
limited extent from my end? What I am thinking is that if you could
follow the blog just once by going on to my blog's homepage
https://bhavyashah125.wordpress.com and inputting your e-mail address
in the given field. Once following, you will receive an e-mail copy of
the blog post in your Inbox itself, eliminating the need to even open
Wordpress. Let me know whether that is feasible/functional as a
work-around or not.

Gene,
I firmly agree that screen layout should be off by default, but NV
Access's current argument to support the current default state is that
the out-of-the-box experience NVDA desires to provide is one extremely
similar to how a sighted individual interacts with the computer, an
argument that I do not find sufficiently compelling, in my personal
opinion. I also somewhat agree that the defaults should be speech
feedback over sound feedback, but I guess that still is somewhat
debatable. Having said that, I don't think block quotes should be off
by default nor that settings should not be automatically saved by
default. Block quotes are judiciously used by web authors to make
citations or to apply slight emphasis, and automatic settings saving
is hardly a question in my mind.
Just to clarify though, I still recommend screen layout in Wikipedia
and its likes because a say all would be quite impractical when
intending to consume such huge chunks of data. Arrowing is the more
obvious navigation method, at least with respect to my experiences, to
slowly and steadily peruse a huge encyclopedic entry.

Pascal,
I doubt if the MS Word crash you describe has any pertinence to the
blog post contents themselves. Unfortunately, I have no ideas to share
in relation to what you highlight, but given that you have made a
plain Notepad text file as a container for the blog post, hope all
stays well.

Kevin,
Glad you unearthed one of those treasures located deep down in the NVDA land...

Thanks.

Hi Gene:

I agree with most of your comments about defaults in NVDA, except for
the Block Quotes. I think that although most people may not need such
a thing, some people might, and if they were off, these people
wouldn't know that they are there.
Those of us who know how to turn them off can easily do so.

By the way, thanks for that blog post, I just learned about some
features that I didn't know even existed.

hi gene.
thanks for your helpful informations.
i aggree with you about default settings.
thanks so much and God bless you.

If you read using speak to end, it doesn't matter how many links there

Reading is not affected. If you don't use read to end and down arrow
through the text, using screen layout may improve matters but it makes
no
sense for people to read in that way.

Screen layout, according to brief comments I saw in an e-mail list
discussion years ago may make web forums easier to navigate but I
strongly
believe that the other option, placing links and controls on their own
lines
should be the default. Which raises the question of how it's decided
what
defaults should be? Clearly, using sounds instead of audio notification
of
browse or forms mode is not a good default, considering the number of
new
users who will have no idea what such sounds mean and who have enough
trouble learning everything else without having sounds where audio
notification would help far more in learning and reinforcement. Save
settings on exit should not be the default. While learning and
experimenting, users might accidentally save settings they have no
intention
of saving. Why are block quotes set to be spoken? Almost no one cares
about such arcane marks.

As I said, who decides these sorts of things. Defaults should be
determined
by the needs of inexperienced users. If long time users don't know how
to
change such settings, they might get some incentive to learn more about
the
program.

So what has changed in the meantime. One assumes you have done all the usual
things like rebooting etc

Have you changed the view or done any updates etc?

Hi,



All of a sudden, NVDA has stopped reading the message list in Outlook 2016.
Window-Eyes, JAWS and Supernova, all read it fine. Anyone have any ideas?



Thanks.



All the best



Steve

Hello!

Before that, even after Alt tabing away of the non responsive app, NVDA kept slow...
Now, after managing to exit the window of the non responsive app, NVDA behaves normally...

Making it to exit the offending window seems more difficult, if at all possible...

Assunto: Re: [nvda] NVDA/Unresponsive Apps

i studied whats new and there mentioned that this problem is solved in
nvda 2015.3
but i still have the issue and dont know the reason.
here its reffrence.
• When an application is responding slowly and you switch away from
that application, NVDA is now much more responsive in other
applications in most cases. (

I suspect this problem may not be solvable. We'll see what developers have
to say but I suspect that there is some sort of sequencing in which NVDA
receives information and that there is some reason that NVDA doesn't process
other information. But to a certain extent, this can be tested. Do other
screen-readers do this as well? I suspect that when NVDA expects
information from an application, it would cause problems to have other
applications be able to interrupt and have NVDA speak something and
normally, this wouldn't be wanted.

Off the top of my head I would say that if nvda needs access to a file

the drive is so slow and caching so small that there is a delay then
there
is going to be a delay no matter what you do. Best wolld be to make sure
thedrives do not go to sleep in the first place.
The drive sleeping is not relevant here. It's an example of behavior, not
the whole point of the message.
The point is that while the app is unresponsive, NVDA is too. The whole
computer is not unresponsive, just that one app. I've seen this happen with
Skype sometimes too, but I can't nail down a specific instance right now
since I don't use it very often.
