Hello all,

 

First, thank you all for joining the next generation NVDA International users list.

 

The leadership team would like to receive feedback from beginning NVDA users regarding the following:

 

2016 is a special year for NVDA users: NVDA turns ten. To celebrate this, some members of the community are organizing a huge online conference around NVDA’s tenth birthday: NVDA Users and Developers Conference (NVDACon for short), to be held in April 2016.

 

NVDACon is an annual gathering of NVDA users and developers to talk about current state of NVDA development. Topics have included math support, braille enhancements, supporting Windows 10, web browsing, Google applications and more. This year, to coordinate NVDACon 2016, several members of this list, together with outside supporters and NV Access formed a planning committee to discuss planning and logistics of this online conference.

 

One of the suggestions considered by organizers is a session or two devoted to beginners. The goals of these sessions are to introduce you to NVDA and its features, understanding concepts such as NVDA menu, object navigation, web browsing and others, an introduction to add-ons and more. Because organizers would like to receive feedback from many fellow community members, we’d like to ask you to send in your suggestions to the committee by either contacting committee members (Nimer, I, Derek Riemer and others), or sending an email to nvda+owner@groups.io with the subject line of “NVDACon 2016” and the admins will forward it to the committee for consideration during our next meeting (sometime in March). Also, even if you are not a beginner (or consider yourself a power user), more suggestions, the better, so we’ll accept suggestions from you as well. The deadline for receiving your email will be March 14, 2016 (shortly before Accessible World Tek Talk event on NVDA and NVDACon) so we can discuss your comments and finalize the schedule by early April.

 

Thank you, and the NVDACon Planning Committee are looking forward to considering your comments.

 

Sincerely,

Joseph

Re: Event: Accessible World Tek Talk presentation on NVDA and NVDACon, Monday, 14 March 2016 #cal-invite

 

Hi,

I’m guessing these are iCal attachments. Don’t worry about them (what’s more important is the message content).

For those who’ve never seen this kind of message before: this is auto-generated when Nimer and I create a calendar event. These are created when we believe an event that’s of importance to this community are coming up, including the Accessible World Tek Talk presentation in a few days. Starting in April, we’ll include monthly reminders such as useful links, guidelines and so on. We’ll intentionally not include NVDA releases as calendar events as they are not quite predictable (although general time frame can be guessed, last minute bugs can delay a release); for those, we’ll use a different approach: hashtags.

Cheers,

Joseph

I am not a beginner, but introducing NVDA to a new user is something I
have done on many occasions. Things they ask include:
1. How do I start NVDA? (either desktop shortcut way, starting .exe
way, Run dialog way or Start menu way is discussed)
2. How do I quit NVDA?
3. How do I change the voice? Because the default one is too robotic
for my taste!
4. Web browsing: how do I turn off verbose elements like clickable,
table headers, landmarks, editor revisions, emphasis, etc.
5. Web browsing: single letter navigation (basics etc.)
6. Speech on or off, sleep on or off (what's the difference?)
7. Configuration profiles (benefits, warnings)
8. Keyboard layouts (differences, etc.)
9. Installing NVDA by one's self...how to (also update)
10. User guide popular applications and tricks (like Skype, MS
Word/Excel/PowerPoint)

Having moved to NVDA from Jaws I found the concepts of Object, Document and Screen review, Navigator Object and review and Browse cursors particularly confusing as I couldn't find documentation that explained what they were and in what circumstances they are used.

Subject: [nvda] Post toolbar not accessible

Hi,

I'm very happy to be on this list. I'm Nut, migrated from Freelists version of NVDA, and just unsubscribed from that list today. But, I have one issue, the toolbar buttons on the compose message page doesn't seem to be accessible with NVDA or Jaws. Though this may not be an issue for a number of people, but those who liked formatting texts in WYSIWYG editors may find it difficult, unless if they used their email clients to post messages to this list.

Re: Calling all beginners: topics to be covered during NvDACon 2016 #NVDACon

Hi

A while ago i started putting together a blindness related website and parts of it cover stuff to do with NVDA. They are done from a blind users prospective using a desktop pc at that time. The operating system was windows 7 and different versions of NVDA were used as they came out. Not every thing in each release was put up there but enough to get a person up and running with NVDA.

I am always adding to it both on blindness related stuff as well as NVDA.

I was reading some of your ideas some I did not think of and made sence, so if you wanted to, I could put more of the basic stuff up there. For example turning off the verbos of nvda saying link, heading etc and where to look.

The website if you want to have a look is at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net

The pages have a lot of information and are long.

They can also be found under the guide section.
It does not have laptop commands as I don't use a laptop on those pages.

Hopefully the pages cover a fair bit of material.

reading emails using the email app under windows 10

Hi,

                                B            

I have moved to windows 10 and am now trying to get my email setup.  I have discovered that reading the contents of emails isn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

 

I can’t seem to move into the message area of the emails so I can’t read them.

 

How do I do this?

 

Thanks.

There is a thread on Win10 forum where someone said you can use review cursor to read emails. No word on how NVDA behaves when composing it (this is all through the built-in Mail app).

Because organizers would like to receive feedback from many fellow community members, we’d like to ask you to send in your suggestions to the committee by either contacting committee members (Nimer, I, Derek Riemer and others), or sending an email to nvda+owner@groups.io with the subject line of “NVDACon 2016” and the admins will forward it to the committee for consideration during our next meeting (sometime in March). Also, even if you are not a beginner (or consider yourself a power user), more suggestions, the better, so we’ll accept suggestions from you as well. The deadline for receiving your email will be March 14, 2016 (shortly before Accessible World Tek Talk event on NVDA and NVDACon) so we can discuss your comments and finalize the schedule by early April.

 

Thank you, and the NVDACon Planning Committee are looking forward to considering your comments.

 

Sincerely,

Joseph

Hi,

Suggestions regarding topics that should be discussed during beginner
sessions (there might be two sessions for beginners).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hello,
I am not sure, what kind of suggestions are addressing?

Hello all,

First, thank you all for joining the next generation NVDA
International users list.

The leadership team would like to receive feedback from beginning
NVDA users regarding the following:

2016 is a special year for NVDA users: NVDA turns ten. To
celebrate this, some members of the community are organizing a
huge online conference around NVDA’s tenth birthday: NVDA Users
and Developers Conference (NVDACon for short), to be held in April
2016.

NVDACon is an annual gathering of NVDA users and developers to
talk about current state of NVDA development. Topics have included
math support, braille enhancements, supporting Windows 10, web
browsing, Google applications and more. This year, to coordinate
NVDACon 2016, several members of this list, together with outside
supporters and NV Access formed a planning committee to discuss
planning and logistics of this online conference.

One of the suggestions considered by organizers is a session or
two devoted to beginners. The goals of these sessions are to
introduce you to NVDA and its features, understanding concepts
such as NVDA menu, object navigation, web browsing and others, an
introduction to add-ons and more. Because organizers would like to
receive feedback from many fellow community members, we’d like to
ask you to send in your suggestions to the committee by either
contacting committee members (Nimer, I, Derek Riemer and others),
or sending an email to nvda+owner@groups.io
<mailto:nvda+owner@groups.io> with the subject line of “NVDACon
2016” and the admins will forward it to the committee for
consideration during our next meeting (sometime in March). Also,
even if you are not a beginner (or consider yourself a power
user), more suggestions, the better, so we’ll accept suggestions
from you as well. The deadline for receiving your email will be
March 14, 2016 (shortly before Accessible World Tek Talk event on
NVDA and NVDACon) so we can discuss your comments and finalize the
schedule by early April.

Thank you, and the NVDACon Planning Committee are looking forward
to considering your comments.

Sincerely,

Joseph

FW: [win10] Groove music app #adminnotice #msftaccessibility

 

Hi everyone,

Important for those using Windows 10: a Microsoft engineer is seeking feedback from screen reader users regarding Groove Music. Please reply to me (nvda+owner@groups.io) or Vince directly (Vince’s email is below, writing to Vince would be much preferable; when you write to either of us, please use the subject line of “Groove Music accessibility”). The more comments Microsoft receives, the better in terms of making Groove Music more accessible thanks to more data from users. Please pass this to other lists where you know you have people using Windows 10, screen readers and Groove Music. Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hello friends

I was wondering if any of you had any issues, rants, suggestions on the current Groovemusic app on Windows phone and/or Windows 10 desktop.

 

Any feedback is appreciated.
