I have not refined my searchskills much, but I have found that using startpage instead of google cuts out a lot of garbage and I usually find what I need in the first half dozen links.

I have preached, repeatedly, that knowing how to do a web search, in 2021, is a basic skill, and if you don't have it then acquiring it is one of the first things you should be trying to do.

And the range of search operators for any search engine is wide (and not often necessary to deal with, I might add) and allows you to drill through a world of data with almost laser-like focus.

One of the operators I do use with some frequency, and which applies here, is the site: operator.  While, like any search term, it can be stuck anywhere in a list of search criteria I generally place it either at the beginning or the end.  If you only wanted to search for something at NVAccess then adding the search term site:nvaccess.org (no spaces, just the word site, the colon, and the website sans any need for http://) and you will be searching only that website for content.  You can even get more specific, such that if you only wanted to search the News portion of the NVAccess site, you would put, site:nvaccess.org/news.

That one operator, when you know that you only want content from a single website or some sub-segment of that site, will eliminate possibly hundreds of thousands of extraneous results.

Google has a great Advanced Search page, with fillable edit boxes/dropdowns, that tells you (if it's accessible) right after all of those fill-in boxes how you can do the same thing in a regular Google Search using operators, as most of us will never come close to combining all of the potential advanced options on the Advanced Search page.  There are also more tutorials that you can shake a stick at regarding Google Search operators and how to use them.

And this is precisely why one of the earliest steps in doing "issue related" debugging is restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled.  It's simple to do, and if the issue vanishes then you have confirmation that it's with an add-on, not NVDA itself.

Then, depending on how many add-ons you have, you go through the process of disabling them all in add-ons manager, then re-enabling them either one at a time (if you have only a couple) or in groups until the issue reappears.  If you were doing one-by-one reenabling, you instantly know your culprit.  If you were doing groups, you know the group it's in, disable those all again, and reenable one-by-one to find out which one in the group is the culprit.

It sounds like a progress beep, but it is not. As I arrow on the page,
especially one with tables, I can hear either ascending or descending
beeps depending on which direction I am navigating.

Are you using a alfa or beta of nvda you will get beeps there on the

its due to brouser nav nvda add on which i found out just now.
after removing that, this problem is gone.
I will re-install that add on and see whats the exact issue.

Re: A quick question about NVDA certification

Gene
 

He and others may be more inclined to in future. I don't know what the situation is now, I haven't looked at the NVDA site in any detail for quite some time, but in the past, it often was much easier to find things using Google. Even if the site was wonderfully organized, it often would be significantly faster, as it is in many other instances to use Google than to go to a site and then search it, especially when Google is a very familiar interface and the site you are going to may not be.

If I want to find out about an add-on, I do a search for the add-on, for example, additional NVDA voices. Google is smart enough to find the page even though the actual word used is extra voices on the page. I just tried searching for additional NVDA synthesizers. Google is smart enough to show the voices page.

It is unfortunate that so many people are unaware of the power and value of Google searches or other good search engine searches.

Hi. I am working on this as well.

I'm just about ready to attempt the exam for the second time.


Hint: Just type NVDA certification into Google and see what the first result is.

That do it yourself attitude may help you as you prepare for the online exam.

Re: Beeping on Web Pages using Chrome

Luke Davis
 

It could be that you have indentation beeps turned on.
While your browser is running, press NVDA+ctrl+D (desktop layout). Then press alt+I.
If that combo box is set to anything other than "off", move it to "off" and press enter.
