locked Re: NVDA versus JAWS

Gene
 

What do yu mean by everything?  If you really mean "everything," That is incorrect.  NVDA is good enough that what it does doesn't need to be exaggerated.  That disappoints people and harms credibility.  I'll leave it to others to site other thingsit doesn't do since I don't use programs like Word, where I don't know if its support is yet as inclusive.  It has improved enormously, from what I've read on the list compared to a few years ago.  So lets consider a few things I know:
You can't label graphics.  You can't define frames and assign actions to them.  You don't have a screen echo that can be set by the user to echo none, some, or all.  Many users know that NVDA can echo information automatically that is placed on the screen in the DOS prompt.  If you set screen echo in JAWS to all, JAWS echos new information automatically in general, which is very useful at times.  And it can be skipped forward and back in with the JAWS repeat and skip lines, performed with the shift keys, while screen echo content is spoken.  That can, at times, make working with a program you haven't defined frames for and where you want to hear material automatically echoed far more efficient under certain circumstances. 
 
And the one more thing I know of and can think of now, NVDA doesn't allow you to set whether description is read before or after the text of something is spoken.  Thus, the user can't choose to have text of a link spoken either before or after visited link is spoken.  You can't determine whether button is spoken before or after the text of the button is read, etc.  I don't think JAWS allows you to individually set these things, but you can determine the general pattern.
 
NVDA does some things better than JAWS.  Since I haven't used JAWS in years, I won't discuss them, because I am not familiar with such instances as they may exist today.

Hi Áine,

I would argue that NVDA can do everything our competitors can do, including OCR (on Windows 10, press NVDA+r then use the regular reading keys), however, I'll leave it to others to argue the pros and cons.

One thing I would suggest, in order to become most efficient with using NVDA, you might consider purchasing our training material.  Basic Training with NVDA is the first module I would recommend.  Despite the name, it actually covers everything from reading the time, up through complex tasks like using the review cursor, object navigation and creating configuration profiles.  We also have modules on using Word, Excel and Outlook with NVDA.  You can purchase these individually, or in our NVDA Productivity Bundle which also includes telephone support.

All of those are available from the NV Access shop: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi all,

New here and my apologies if this topic has been well-covered before but I’ve not found an efficient ways to search group archives yet!

I’m switching back to Windows after using a Mac for a couple of years, as I’ll be studying investigative journalism and am fairly sure I’ll find any software we need to use etc. to work better on Windows than Mac (still getting info on that).

I’m moving overseas, where I probably won’t have access to funding for technology, etc., as an international student. So I’m trying to work out now whether to exclusively use NVDA or try and purchase a JAWS SMA while I’m still living in New Zealand.

My question is: can you tell me about anything that springs to mind that NVDA does particularly poorly that JAWS does well? In the domains of MS Word, excel and web browsing, in particular.

I imagine JAWS is well-ahead of NVDA in OCRing by now, for instance, but perhaps there’s enough free software around to do this efficiently now that that’s not a big deal any more … thoughts?

Thanks very much in advance,

Best wishes,

Áine

Re: Selecting a block of text.

Gene
 

Use control c and control v in browsers.  The commands you are using are intended for times when there is no cursor or virtual cursor.  Browse mode uses a virtual cursor.

Hello everyone,
For a while now, I have been having problems with the select a block
of text function on nvda.
When I place the start marker by pressing nvda f9 everything is fine,
the start marker is announced. When I go to the end of the block to
press nvda f10, the curser winds back to the beginning and only
selects and places in the clipboard the first letter of the section. I
have tried this on various browsers and the same result each time and
with different types of content. I have been having this problem for a
while now and am currently using 2019.1.1. I was hoping that
installing the clip contents designer would solve the problem, but
something similar seems to happen.

Re: braille edge

Robert Doc Wright godfearer
 

I have been using mine now for a year this month. Before this my last braille display was the Braille Light 40 back in 99. I gave it back because I was taking programming classes and it would not have helped me in that effort as far as being able to run the program I wrote. The BrailleEdge40 I am enjoying for both reading and writing. Be aware that if you are also wanting to go on-line then you will either have to Bluetooth it to your phone or connect it to your pc. It does not have these capabilities on its own. Its  memory is based on the size of the SD card you install. Let me know if I can help in any other way.

Could anyone tell me of their experiences using NVDA with the Braille Edge from HIMS?  I’m considering purchasing one but would just love some personal feedback.  Does it work well specifically for editing documents?  Thanks so much.

thanks quentin for your great advice.
do you mean this option?
Follow System Caret
if so, this preference is always enabled for me, but unfortunately
sometimes nvda selection does not work for me, but most of times
works!
and as i promised, i use 2017.2 forever, not 2017.3

thanks again for your great support, i always say with sincerity and

Hi Ali,



Firstly, just to confirm that you are familiar with the current
behaviour of
selecting with the review cursor - NVDA+F9 to mark the start of the
block,
move to the end of the block and NVDA+F10 once to select the block or
NVDA+F10 twice quickly to select and copy it. If you use the review
cursor
to select and then press control+c to copy for instance, it may not
work
depending on whether it is possible to select text with the
conventional
text cursor. If you press NVDA+f10 once and NVDA reports "Cannot
select
text, press twice to copy", then you will need to copy by pressing
NVDA+F10
twice quickly.



It might be worth restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled, just to ensure
there are no add-ons playing up. Press NVDA+Q then down arrow to
"Restart
with add-ons disabled" and press ENTER to restart, then try again.



Otherwise, if you set the log to debug (in the general settings with
NVDA+control+g then tab to the log level, down arrow to select debug
and
enter to close), repeat the actions and then copy the log to an email
to
me,
I can have a look at exactly what is going on.

Re: NVDA tutorials for MSWord and Track Changes CT

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi David,

If you have a cheat sheet from WebAim on Track Changes, that likely does cover the keystrokes needed.  I'm not familiar with the particular sheet although Web Aim do have a good name, so I'm sure it's likely a good reference.

One consideration with it might be how much explanation it gives for each keystroke or whether it simply lists the keys to press.  One thing with the NV Access material (and full disclosure if it's not already obvious, I wrote the NV Access material), it explains each topic and what the keystrokes do before walking you through a step-by-step activity using them - and in the case of the Office modules, it then also has an extra "bonus activity" with less instruction, you can complete both for extra revision, and also to ensure you do understand the topic before moving on.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Code Factory Eloquence Registration Problem Solved

Ed Marquette
 

As I mentioned in an earlier post, NVDA seemed to think I was still using the trial version of the Code Factory Eloquence (and Vocalizer) add-on.
It may have helped that Code Factory just released Version 1.6, but I downloaded that version (using the original link from the order confirmation email message. I then installed that version by hitting ENTER from File Explorer.
NVDA took me through the registration process, and all is well.
I’m a happy camper. <SMILE>
I hope this procedure helps others who had the same problem.


Re: Copying Text in Original Format With NVDA

Ed Marquette
 

I too have had the problem reported with the NVDA Key + F9 and NVDA Key + F10.  When I paste the results, I get one letter.  It doesn’t always happen, but it usually does. 
That just means I have to copy and paste the old-fashioned way, highlighting text using windows or application specific commands.  The problem isn’t in the copying; it is in the selecting of the text.  Of course, using old-fashioned Windows commands, one can highlight simply by holding the shift key and moving the system cursor by word, by line, by paragraph, to the end of the line, to the beginning of the line, or to the beginning or end of the respective documents (with control + home or control + end), and then using control + c or control + x (to cut).
The bigger trick, then, is not to carry the formatting with you in the paste.  Control + v will carry the source document’s formatting with it. 
A little-known trick is to paste into Word or Outlook using, not control + v, but instead, control + alt + v.  That brings up a menu allowing one to retain the formatting, paste as html, or as plain text.  I almost always opt for plain text because I want the pasted text to take on the characteristics of the target document, not the source document.
While on the subject of selecting text, in Microsoft word (all the way back to Word 2003), tapping f8 once turns on selection.  Tapping a second time selects the nearest word.  Tapping a third time highlights the nearest sentence (or the paragraph if there is only one sentence in the paragraph), and finally, a 4th tap will select the paragraph.  One may also use f8 like the NVDA Key + F9.  The f8 turns on the selector.  Just move to the end of the desired selection and press control + c to copy.
So, there are lots of options.  One place where the NVDA + F9 function seems to work is when in one of the review modes, and not using the system cursor.
By the way, while on the topic of copying, in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook, one may copy a paragraph’s formatting (and none of the text) with control + shift + C.  Then paste that formatting with control + shift+ v.

Not directly. But, though I have never tried it, I believe you should be able to paste the result of the above into a word document, and then select and copy only the part that interests you, then paste that into another location.

This is somewhat related to the copy a column from a table discussion a week or two ago.
The browsers can do this. But NVDA can not allow us to use those features of the browser fully. The best we can get currently is the select all in focus mode method that you have just learned.

What you are looking for, is the feature request posted here.
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/5354

Many people would find this a useful feature. But evidently it is rather difficult to implement.

Thanks Luke, but even with all the addons disabled it doesn't work.
I've sent the log to Quentin and hope there is a solution.

That is probably because you most likely have NVDA exit options turned off.

So, a way to restart without addons without having to change any of your
settings, is to do this:

Press your windows key and the letter r.

In the window that appears, type the following:

nvda -r --disable-addons

Then press enter. Make sure you get the dashes in the right places.

That should restart nvda with all addons disabled temporarily (until you
start
it again).

Hth.

Hi all,

Could anyone tell me of their experiences using NVDA with the Braille Edge from HIMS?  I’m considering purchasing one but would just love some personal feedback.  Does it work well specifically for editing documents?  Thanks so much.

Re: Copying Text in Original Format With NVDA

 

when i use this method, unfortunately nvda does not read for me the
content in focus mode.
if we find a solution that we can use cursor navigation and spoken
feedback from nvda in focus mode, certainly we can use our desired
part of page!

Is there a way of copying just a part of a page with this method?

It gives me exactly what NVDA speaks, but what I'm looking for,
actually, is a way to copy not as plain text.
Did I manage to explain it better now?
