Hi all,



Add-on Updater 19.08.1 is now available. This version registers Control
Usage Assistant for update checks and resolves an issue where you could not
check for updates for certain add-ons with unexpected update channels set
(NVDA would do nothing or play error tones).



Note: this update will install on NVDA 2019.1, but I recommend using this
add-on with 2019.2. Add-on Updater 19.09 will require NVDA 2019.2.

Re: NVDA 2019.2 now available

Just looking at it now, you are right, if you tab to the "pictures" button, then tab one more time, it doesn't say anything, but that's the edit field for your signature.  You can type in there but nothing is read.  By default it has "Sent from Mail for Windows 10".  What I would recommend for now, is write your signature in Word or Notepad or somewhere else, copy it, then come to this edit box, select all, and paste.

FWIW, Narrator doesn't work any better than NVDA at reading that section, so it definitely is an issue with that screen in Mail.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: Accessible music notation software compatible with NVDA

Jaffar Sidek <jaffar.sidek10@...>
 

Hi.  I am currently commisioned to write a musical and I am using MuseScore, a free, open source project.  It is quite accessible with NVDA.  I am pasting the link to the accessibility documentation for you so you can determine for yourself if it will serve your needs:

https://musescore.org/en/handbook/accessibility

Sibileus is a fantastic score writing app, but it does cost quite a bit.  I have tried it and it works well with the NVDA Addon specially written for it.  That though was a few years ago, and I don't know if it will work with the latest versions of Sibelius.  But I am aware that Sibelius works well with Narator, something, I must admit that did surprise me.  Anyways, Tried Musescore and see if it will help you, and you can contact me off list if you need further help.  I'll do my best.  Cheers and good luck for your Music Technology course.  I did the same course myself back in 1994.

NVDA? And if so, how accessible is it? And if not, are there other

I have been playing around with a program called Musescore and thus far can input pitches right from the qwerty keyboard. However, I don't yet know whether I can specify note values from the keyboard, insert dynamic markings, articulation signs or items above staves such as lyrics and chords. I keep hearing rumors about Sibelius finally being accessible, but thus far haven't found a single blind person using it.

I've installed the latest alpha snapshot of NVDA and started a terminal on my Windows 10 box.

The first thing I've noticed is, that some output in the terminal is underlined on my braille display with the alpha snapshot. So simply the output of a directory listing (dir) is underlined and this makes reading such output very difficult :-(. The same occures when I am on a remote system with ssh. With the current stable version of NVDA this underlining does not occure.

Another strange behaviour with the alpha snapshot is a bit difficult to explain :-(. When I am on a remote system in a text file opened with the vi editor the character wich is under the cursor is not displayed. So if I am on the first character in the line everything but not the first character of the line is shown. If I move one character to the right to the second position in the line the first character is shown and all character from the third position,but not the second character. This also does not ocure with the current stable release of NVDA.

I don't know if the two problems are related to your changes to the terminal support, the braille output or what ever in the alpha snapshot, but both things are not happening with the current stable release. Maybe you know this issues or you have some ideas how to solve them. If it makes things easier, I also can open two bug reports...
If you want these to be addressed the best course of action would be to
open a bug report on GitHub after testing with latest alpha.

Re: Accessible music notation software compatible with NVDA

Devin Prater
 

Try Lilypond. It is a notation markup language, which can be converted to PDF or Midi. Being a simple text file, Lilypond files can be written with NVDA using Notepad++ or any other editor, and its compiler is a program run on the command line, or in Powershell if you use that more. It is the most accessible.

Re: Filtering a YouTube results page

Search for something. When you do, once the page with results loads and you come out of focus mode, there should be a button that says "toggle button not pressed search filters". Pressing that gives you options, e.g. downloads in the last day, month, year, and so on. For example, if I search for Seagull merlin, wait until the page loads, and then exit focus mode, I get the search filters button right below the sub menu about account profiles, and just above the first result, oh I should add I'm not using screen layout for web pages but the other option.

Re: Filtering a YouTube results page

Clarissa Mitchell
 

I have done this before. First, type the search terms as normal. Then,
on the results page, there should be a button for filters. Press the b
key until you get to this. NVDA should say something like, "clickable
search filters toggle button not pressed." Press the space bar on that
to open the filters. Then, you can navigate by heading with the h key.
You should get upload date, type, duration, etc. What I like to do is
choose video under type, then sort by: upload date. Then I get the
most recent videos for my search term. Hope this helps.

Re: Why does NVDA not find photos on this website?

Giles Turnbull
 

That is interesting, thanks Quentin. SO if an ALT tag was empty NVDA wouldn't just speak it, it would not even appear as a graphical object?

You are correct, the site does need you to log in. I've been talking to the IT team behind the website and I'm happy to say they are currently doing a re-design to improve accessibility for screen readers.

The senior designer tells me the images do use the IMG tag but she also tells me it is a slideshow, so I'm just asking her how that might be being done. NVDA is not finding any graphics (except the main website logo) and there are no embedded objects such as YouTube videos.

I'm really happy to see a website taking screen reader accessibility seriously :)

I later contacted a local IT professional here in Hong Kong and found out that this error is related to one of the locally developed addon.
In that case, the problem may not be associated with the NVDA core, and I here now request the thread to be closed.

I'm going to look into this for you.  In the meantime, if you set your language to something else, perhaps English as you seem to be fluent, and it's probably the most widely tested - then try updating and see if that works.  I just tried setting NVDA's interface to ZH_HK and it restarted in Chinese (Hong Kong) working normally (though that was the interface language, rather than the computer language).  I tried installing Traditional Chinese Hong Kong as a language in Windows and restarted the computer and again it worked for me, but maybe there's an issue installing that isn't there later on.  Which version of Windows are you using?
