Announcing cut, copy, or paste

Judy Jones <sonshines59@...>
 

Hello To All,

 

Can NVDA be set to announc “cut text to clipboard,” as Jaws does when you use control-X?

 

I ran into this when wanting to paste a link into an e-mail.  In Jaws you hit Alt-D, A, and C to get this done.  I did manage to copy to clipboard, but didn’t hear it spoken, so pulled up notepad to make sure I actually had copied the address.

 

It would seem easier if you could hear that your commands are carried out.

 

Thanks as always.

 

Judy

Re: Reaper Tutorial

Howard, Sorry for the confusion, JMCasey is right, it's the first
page of the tutorial and it's hosted on a gaming site. Anyway, that's
the link that was posted and there's nothing else to do but start
reading from the first post on. It's mostly active students chatting
back and forth, so it's a quick read to catch up. I'm not
participating in the class, but I've been lurking in the weeds, lol.
Anyway, it's very interesting.

So to keep this list on track, anyone interested in Reaper should join
the "reaper without peepers" list here:

Reaper without peepers on groups.io:
rwp+subscribe@groups.io

By the way, the CAVI instructors and many very talented reaper users
inhabit the list and all levels of users are welcome to join. Here's a
list of resources that are posted at the bottom of each RWP posting,
enjoy, Blaster

Re: Remove beeps from list of emails

 

Hi,

That’s my conclusion as well.

That add-on is meant to be a proof of concept implementation of the following NVDA issue:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/2559

 

Luckily, the NVDA Core implementation of this add-on will be sensitive to configuration profiles – it is just awaiting code review at the moment.
Cheers,

Joseph

I just checked.  The name of the add-on is object location tones. 
The description says, "After installing this add-on and restarting NVDA (or when you enable this add-on), as you navigate to different controls, you'll hear tones to indicate where the object is located on screen."  It is evidently seeing items in Outlook like different messages in the list as controls.  I assume from the fact that you don't complain about this in other programs such as Windows Explorer, that this generally doesn't happen.

 

That also explains why when you turned off the object navigator moving as you moved in the application, that no beeps were heard.  the object navigator didn't move and the add-on was therefore unaware that you were moving in the application.

Joseph,

 

I went into the ad on manager and disabled your beep add-on and the problem has gone away! Now when I toggle NVDA+7 to either on or off there is no more beeping!

 

This is a brutal way to resolve the problem but it is a relief. However, I would like to understand what was happening and why I could not simply toggle the beeps on or off without losing the ability to Trak the cursor.

Mozilla seems to have changed the options window, again

 

Hey folks,
So the subject speaks for itself.
Some of you may remember me from the other thread about the add-ons' section, isn't it?
Well, here we are again. Now, though, the situation is in fact at least a little bit better.
Our dear mozilla, on what I believe to be the latest Firefox, changed in a way the options' window, where we have general, privacy and such.
At first, I was about to post here asking for a workaround for this one, but I found it myself.
The story is like that: being on said window, one can't, for their life, arrow through the options anymore. Well, at least it was what I was getting.
Then, don't know why, but as a last resort I tried to play with the window using NVDA in focus mode.
Guess what? It worked!
In fact, I believe it worked because now in this very same window you have a search field where you can type in parts of what you want to get, for example "priva" for privacy. But, this field actually is also a submenu!
No, you haven't read it wrong. It's a field and a submenu, as NVDA reports it.
I'll have to say, that's the first time I've seen something like that. Quite odd, if you ask me.

Well, all of this to say that, if you getting the same as I got, then justdo the NVDA focus mode thing or the equivalent on your screen reader, tab through the screen and then at some point you'll be able to arrow through the options like we are used to do.

Sorry for another old message, but, I do want to weigh in on something that was said here.

 

It is probably not a good idea to leave UAC (User Account Control) turned off.

 

If you download the wrong thing, or something infected that your virus-checker doesn’t know about, a program can run in “elevated” mode and make any change to your system.

 

According to Leo Laport, Ransomware is on the rise.

 

If you must turn UAC off, it is better to turn it off only to install a program you know is safe, then, after it installs, turn UAC back on.

 

Of course, it’s still a personal decision.

Since I have UAC shut off, alwyas have, I don't face that problem. Try shutting it off and see if tha tworks then turn it back on if yu really want it on. I do not so I don't.

Aside from the avenues others have suggested, once you start the install, on Windows 10, it will bring up a user account control dialog wanting you to confirm that you allow the program to make changes - that's nothing worrying about NVDA, it does that when you install ANY program.  The problem can be, sometimes it opens that dialog and seemingly puts it behind every other open window.  But, if you don't respond to it within 20 seconds or so, it closes, and the install fails.  Once you've told it to install, if you aren't given that dialog, press either ALT+TAB or ALT+SHIFT+TAB (when not on top, it's usually the last window) to find that UAC dialog.

 

Other than that, I can't think why 2018.2.1 would install and not anything later...

 

On Thu, Sep 27, 2018 at 9:10 PM Gene <gsasner@...> wrote:

Why would an earlier version of NVDA install and not this version?  It is really not logical to place bloatware or Avast, which is likely not even being used and which I have never heard blocks NVDA from being installed as likely reasons.  It's as though you have drawn up a list of programs you don't like and said, I don't like them so they are likely the problem. 

 

Is it possible that some program is preventing the installation?  Of course, all sorts of things are possible but the way to proceed is to get someone who has proper technical knowledge to look at whatever relevant logs should be looked at and not just categorically blame this or that program or broad meaningless class (bloatware) of program.

If this is the first time you have installed nvda and its a new machine. My
main finger of blame is that it needs a bloatware clean down session if not
a total reinstall.
 Avast is almost like a virus and seems to be on every large store purchased
machine just like Norton used to be, indeed some manufacturers fit it.
 There are also often  free trial versions of all sorts of rubbish

Re: Remove beeps from list of emails

 

Cearbhall,
I'm not Joseph, but let me answer your question :)
You can find the option to restart NVDA with all add-ons disabled on the exit dialog. I believe you know how to get there, though if you don't, it's NVDA+Q.
Another way of doing it is through the command line but I don't know the exact command.
I'm in a hurry now, but if nobody comes up with such a command, I can look it for you later on.

Hi,

Another possibility: how about restarting with all add-ons turned off? That way we can figure out if this is an add-on problem (I have a hunch that it is one of my add-ons not working right for you, and if so, I’ll do something about it).

For others: this invalidates claims that the email client is to blame, although it might have something to do with it. We won’t find out until we go through troubleshooting steps.

You are right, Quentin did ask me to send a log last night but I am only now getting around to it. As I was looking for the keystroke to launch the log, I accidentally struck NVDA+7 on the PC keyboard and the bleeping stopped! I toggled NVDA+7 again and the bleeping came back again! 

 

NVDA keyboard help tells me that: NVDA+7 Toggles on and off the movement of the navigator object due to focus changes!.

 

Is this the answer to the problem? Can I enable this action without having to have the bleeps?

Re: Narrator voice appears to be overriding NVDA voice in say all and automated page reading

Hi.

So you said you've set George as your default OneCore voice in the NVDA speech settings as well? Do you have any saved say all configuration profile?


Narrator voice appears to be overriding NVDA voice in say all and automated page reading

Christopher Bartlett
 

I have installed several Microsoft Onecore voices and attempted to set one of the UK voices as my default voice.  But now, when I begin a say all or automatic page reading begins, such as in Chrome or QREAD when I alt-tab to it, the Microsoft David voice that appears to be the default system voice overrides my choice.  As I do not love Microsoft David, this is an annoyance, especially since I can't figure out how to stop it from happening.


I have gone into windows settings > language > speech and set Microsoft George as my default voice.  I have also done so in the settings > ease  of access > narrator panel.
The strange thing is that this was working two or three days ago.  Anyone have any ideas?  I'm using the current Windows Insider build 1903 and the latest NVDA.

Sometimes when alt-tabbing away and back to the screen of the browser, NVDA forgets it's environment, meaning that the buttons can't be navigated too with hot keys b and shift b, etc. When I reload NVDA, all is well again. :)

Re: Remove beeps from list of emails

I had a look through office events and cannot see one that should affect merely moving about in a list of emails.

Not unless they have added something recently.

Hi,



Thanks for taking the trouble to reply! That was one of the first options I thought of. However, I have those all set off and the list is still beeping!





All the best,

Hi.

Have you tried turning off the reporting of Progress bars in the NVDA object presentation settings? Try that, then if it works, you may wish to create a configuration profile for Outlook with the setting turned off. Information on how to do this is in the user guide.

Well he did an nvda command that stopped it but it was not one I'd expect to have that effect myself.

Are you sure its NVDA that's beeping? Unless you have tested the problem with another screen-reader or no screen-reader, whichever you prefer, you don't know. The easiest way to test would probably be to be in the program, put NVDA to sleep, then try the commands that are causing the beep, then wake NVDA again and resume whatever you want to do.

This doesn't sound like NVDA behavior.

Hi,



I am trying to find out how to stop MVDA from beeping every time I press tab or arrow up or down in a list of emails in Outlook. I have turned off all mouse tracking in the settings menu but the beeping persists. Can anyone advise me what to do?





All the best,

Re: The latest versions of NVDA will not install on my Acer Swift Notebook

Joseph Norton
 

Sorry for another old message, but, I do want to weigh in on something that was said here.

 

It is probably not a good idea to leave UAC (User Account Control) turned off.

 

If you download the wrong thing, or something infected that your virus-checker doesn’t know about, a program can run in “elevated” mode and make any change to your system.

 

According to Leo Laport, Ransomware is on the rise.

 

If you must turn UAC off, it is better to turn it off only to install a program you know is safe, then, after it installs, turn UAC back on.

 

Of course, it’s still a personal decision.

Since I have UAC shut off, alwyas have, I don't face that problem. Try shutting it off and see if tha tworks then turn it back on if yu really want it on. I do not so I don't.

Aside from the avenues others have suggested, once you start the install, on Windows 10, it will bring up a user account control dialog wanting you to confirm that you allow the program to make changes - that's nothing worrying about NVDA, it does that when you install ANY program.  The problem can be, sometimes it opens that dialog and seemingly puts it behind every other open window.  But, if you don't respond to it within 20 seconds or so, it closes, and the install fails.  Once you've told it to install, if you aren't given that dialog, press either ALT+TAB or ALT+SHIFT+TAB (when not on top, it's usually the last window) to find that UAC dialog.

 

Other than that, I can't think why 2018.2.1 would install and not anything later...

Why would an earlier version of NVDA install and not this version?  It is really not logical to place bloatware or Avast, which is likely not even being used and which I have never heard blocks NVDA from being installed as likely reasons.  It's as though you have drawn up a list of programs you don't like and said, I don't like them so they are likely the problem. 

 

Is it possible that some program is preventing the installation?  Of course, all sorts of things are possible but the way to proceed is to get someone who has proper technical knowledge to look at whatever relevant logs should be looked at and not just categorically blame this or that program or broad meaningless class (bloatware) of program.

If this is the first time you have installed nvda and its a new machine. My
main finger of blame is that it needs a bloatware clean down session if not
a total reinstall.
 Avast is almost like a virus and seems to be on every large store purchased
machine just like Norton used to be, indeed some manufacturers fit it.
 There are also often  free trial versions of all sorts of rubbish
installed.
