Re: windows app essentials 16.03

 

Hi Chris,
Ah yes, I'm aware of this (I've experienced this myself). Are you perhaps using a tablet? If so, this may explain the issue.
So far, I haven't found a way to let NVDA know that the microphone button has been pressed (both on keyboards and via touch). I plan to tackle this once more this week once I have free time.
Cheers,
Joseph

how to disable drop box badge

Arlene
 

Hi, I don’t know if this will work with NVDA. This person who gave me this message uses jaws 17. I don’t think this will bother you using NVDA This is if you have office or word.

 
 
Dropbox Badge is a rather unfriendly floating window that shows up if 
you work with Dropbox and Microsoft Word or Office. You can disable this 
window by doing the following:
 
Go to the system tray and arrow down to dropbox.
 
Press enter on it.
 
You should hear a prompt to press enter to get into the menu.
 
Press enter; you're in a list of items.
 
Arrow down till you hear preferences.
 
Press enter. You're in a dialog box.
 
Tab until you get to dropbox badge; you'll be in a combo box.
 
Press alt and down arrow. Go down to the last item, which says "never 
show." Press enter on it.
 
Tab to the OK button and press enter. This gets you out of dropbox and 

out of the system tray.

I don't see why not that nvda could do audio ducking in windows 7 because in the comunations settings you have options to do nothing lower the sound by 50 percent or 80 percent and so on, So why not allow nvda to do audio ducking in windows 7?

Re: audio ducking.

Re: audio ducking.

 

Hi,
I'm talking about Windows API. In order for audio ducking to work, a screen reader must tell Windows that it wishes to indeed duck audio (this requires certain privileges). I'll talk audio ducking during the upcoming NVDA presentation.

Re: audio ducking.

Interesting If you are talking about making things go down like other audio when communatating then windows 7 sure can do that. if you go into your speaker icon, then play back the last item in there is to do what you might say audio ducking is so that is why i have asked if that would not work here as well if you are talking about a windows api / api call that should work not sure though.

I think it may is possible to solve this in windows 7, However that could be problematic to do. and you who run windows 7, must start accept that sthis IOS start to be old fasion. So it is right from devs to develope for the future.
For you it is a willing if you want to upgrade or not. Not an money-question.

Most people can not aford to upgrade to windows 10 the problem comes in if your system is not compatable with the windows 10 operating system, if your video card/ audio card processor/ mother board aren't windows 10 ready or supported you would have to spend the money to get the required componients to make your system windows 10 ready.
When researching windows 10 for a friend i found this out by reading on windows 10 requirements and if they don't support windows 10 you will not be able to run windows 10 until you fix the requirements.

Re: audio ducking.

 

Hi,
NVDA is not a communications application (although it could act that way). I'd say NVDA should not have to go through hoops such as registering itself as a communications application to enable audio ducking in Windows 7 (that is, let NVDA do its own thing and become an expert at it, which is receiving, processing and presenting screen information).
As for audio ducking in general: yes API support is required, which came with Windows 8 (technical: oleacc.dll (OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) Accessibility library, the library that implements Microsoft Active Accessibility) introduces audio ducking related functions in Windows 8 and higher; I'll indeed talk about why audio ducking cannot be supported on Windows 7 and earlier and on portable copies on March 14th).
Cheers,
Joseph
