Re: NVDA says out of link in Outlook

Gene
 

I just checked this.  Even when using read to end, NVDA in Word says out of link every time a link is left.  I'll leave it to others to discuss this idea.  Should NVDA be scripted not to say out of link when in Outlook?

With this example, if you use up/down arrow, you do not hear "out-of-link" in Chrome.
Now, copy/paste the whole content of tthe webpage in Word; to keep formatting, do not use NVDA's select all and copy but native one. That is NVDA+F2, ctrl+A, NVDA+F2, ctrl+C and then paste in Word.
In Word, using up/down arrow, you will here "out of link".

I do not know if it is the same thing as Bob is experimenting; but it definitely demonstrates that the behaviour is different between Word and Chrome in some cases.

Your answer does not explain why the links are reported differently on a webpage than in an e-mail in Outlook (or a Word document). In other words, is this difference of behaviour intended or is it a bug? And if it is intended, what is the explanation?

Actually, it does work the same way in Word and the web, it's just that it reports "out of link" when you navigate by character or word - which you are more likely to do in Word  It doesn't report out of link when you press down arrow or say all or jump to another element.

Re: Portable copy of NVDA not working

Gene
 

You can't uninstall a portable copy of a program.  That's the whole point of a portable program.  You can move it anywhere and run it from things like removable drives.  The files are on your machine and the program runs but nothing is changed or installed on the machie.  Delete the folder containing the program and it will be completely gone.

You can't uninstall a portable copy, since it was never installed. It is self-contained, which is what makes it portable. Delete its folder.

Consider Gene's advice about keeping a periodic backup of your working portable copy, so you can easily restore it if something goes wrong. It seems you rely on it heavily.

Speaking of that, inquiring minds do want to know why you run 2019.3? There was nothing special about 2019.3, that I know of, except that it was the first version to use Python3. However since it does, there shouldn't be any reason not to run a newer version that also supports Python 3, such as 2020.4, or 2022.X.

Issue resolved!
I replaced "user config" folder of the new portable copy with that of my old portable copy, which had my preferred settings and add-ons. Now, this new copy is working fine with my old settings and add-ons. I guess it was an issue of my old portable copy being corrupted for some reason. Thank you Brian, and everyone! I also learnt some very useful new things about NVDA.

Re: Portable copy of NVDA not working

Quentin Christensen
 

nvda.log is the file for the currently running - or most recently run instance of NVDA
nvda-old.log is the file for the previous instance of NVDA prior to that.

Wherever you run NVDA from - whether the installed copy, or a portable copy (or temporary copy from the downloaded launcher) - the log will be written to %temp%.  So if you run a portable copy, exit it (or it crashes) and then start an installed copy, in your %temp% folder, nvda.log will be for the currently running (installed) instance, and nvda-old.log will be from the previous run (the portable copy in this case).

All user configuration is stored under the NVDA Portable folder, wherever you chose to create it, in a folder named userConfig.  That includes Add-Ons, Profiles, dictionaries, etc.   That is provided you told NVDA to include user configuration profiles when you created the portable copy.  I'd imagine that the add-ons, etc., will be there if they were there for the installed version from which the portable copy was created.

So, if you still have an old portable copy (which compatible add-ons, etc.) and provided that it wasn't something under userConfig that is the source of corruption, you should be able to copy that folder over lock, stock, and barrel to a freshly created portable copy that does not have it.

Re: activating a stuborn button on web site

Gene
 

Here's how you do it.
If you up arrow once from the button, depending on what your screen-reader is set to announce, you will either hear banner landmark and some text spoken or you will hear blank.  This is where you go into focus mode to work with the edit field.  Press enter, type the search, then press enter to perform the search.

Ok, so:
a) cr.org & consumerreports.org are the same.
b) There is a search field. If you hit the e key, it says blank. Press
the spacebar & you can type your search text. Press enter & your
results appear.

I did visit the website & did that prior to writing the first time, so
I knew it worked.

Will people please copy addresses from the address bar?  The address is:
https://www.consumerreports.org/

It is not safe to go to addresses that are similar to well known addresses.  Hackers purchase addresses that are similar to popular addresses.  If you go to one, you may end up on a malicious site that tries to place malware on the machine.

Also, I had to do a search to find the correct address.

Sometimes that does not work, it's very, very rare when that does not, when enter does not work it's annoying as you need to then tab to a button that hopefully will show up in focus mode, then hot space, if not you need to find it in browse mode and hit enter there, or route and left click.
