Re: NVDA Alpha: Where can I download it?

 

P.S.: Looking through Google results, I found the link to the page for the Alpha and Beta versions.
I just wanted to know, by accessing http://nvda-project.org, where one should go to get access to this same page I just found googling for "NVDA Alpha". Is there a way?

Hello guys,
It's been a while since I became an NVDA Alpha user.
Today, though, I decided I'll go back to NVDA Stable channel.
So, my question is: if I want to become an Alpha again, or even a Beta, where can I choose between these options?
Thanks :)

Re: reading console output by word

Can't this be fixed? I use R in the console and this makes it a pain to use.

Hi Quentin

Do you have plans for one in powerpoint? I would be very interested in purchasing them if you release one. I have already contributed by purchasing the Word and Excel ones

Hi Farhan,

NV Access have tutorials available for Microsoft Word and Excel, and soon we will release one for Outlook: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

The materials are based on Office 2010 and later, including Office 2016, 2019 and 365.  They include a description and instructions for each topic or feature, then a step-by-step activity, and a bonus, "advanced" activity with less specific instruction, to ensure you have a good understanding of the topic.

Kind regards

Quentin.

very odd issue: NVDA reads hidden text in firefox preferences

enes sarıbaş
 

hi,

STR:

1. open firefox options in version 66.0 or above.

2. arrow through the webpage like preferences. You will see text that should not be visible to a sighted person, all possible dialogues.

Example1:

Startup
Restore previous session
Warn you when quitting the browser
Always check if Firefox is your default browser
Firefox is not your default browser
Firefox is currently your default browser

example2:

Firefox Updates
Keep Firefox up to date for the best performance, stability, and security.
Version 66.0.2 (64-bit) What’s new
Show Update History…
Checking for updates…Applying update…Update failed. Download the latest versionUpdates disabled by your system administrator
Firefox is up to date
Check for updates
Firefox is being updated by another instanceUpdates available at You can not perform further updates on this system. Restarting…

Can an NVDA dev explain why this is happening? I can see this on several websites as well.


Re: Firefox's extensions' section: The Saga goes on

 

No worries, anyway. As far as I can download my loved add-ons and play with them in a friendly manner, I'm happy to deal with this annoyance at least until a workaround can be found :)

That's been the case as long as I've used Firefox.  It appears that Firefox is sending information to the screen-reader giving an incorrect number of items.  Everything is in the list that I would expect to be in the list and I've never seen any other item discussed whenever I've looked up or seen a discussion of how to do anything in this area of the program.

Hello guys,
Quite a while ago I posted about an issue regarding Firefox working with NVDA, where these little guys weren't wanting to read properly the options - plugins, extensions and such - as we went through them.
Well as said before by Brian - or at least one of the Brians we have here right now (LOL) - this is fortunately fixed, for what I'm infinitely thankful.
Trouble is, now when navigating through the options, I'm hearing something like that:
Plugins - 1 of 7
Extensions - 2 of 7
And so on until the fourth item.
And here's where thing gets weird. I just can't keep arrowing down to see the other 3 options that would be there according with the NVDA items' numbering.
So, all of this to ask, is anyone having this behavior using the latest Firefox version?
That's all guys.
Thanks.

hi Ralph

You can try

Theophilos
Theophilos has been discontinued. No tech support is available. E-commerce is disabled.
Theophilos Bible Software Logo
Theophilos is free Bible Software Download now

http://www.theophilos.com/

You will have to make adjustments for accessibility in the settings. I used to use it ages ago.


/For bible programmes depends what you want to do. I find that most of the off line programmes are not too accessible.

Again what do you want to do? Bible Gateway is a good website and they have afar Ely accessible iPhone app.

If all you want to be able to do fairly easily is to read various translations of the bible then consider getting the dvds from Optasia Ministry
On them there is a linked html bible with over 15 versions on it. You can use any version that is there and go to any verse fairly easily. You cannot display a single verse though.

This is a very helpful tool if you want to be able to read bibles when you are not connected to the internet. It is my choice for reading bible in braille as you can put the whole directory on to a braille note taker and make the index.htm file a favourite in your web browser.

http://www.optasiaministry.org/

on their DVDS there are loads of text resources on various topics.

kind regards

Re: Bible Programs

Dear Pascal,

 

Although it is a very basic program and does not have the more recent, copyrighted, versions of the Bible, it is the best I have found. However, having recently moved to a new computer and a new version of Windows 10, I now have some difficulty in navigating through a list of passages in a Find window. On the old computer, I could simply arrow my way through the list and use the tab key to move to the fields that allow me to do a new search. Now I have to use the number pad to navigate through the list of found passages and I cannot tab out of that list.

 

Warmly,

Ralph

Version 19.4 of Add-on Updater, Windows 10 App Essentials, StationPlaylist STudio #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Version 19.04 for the following add-ons are out or will come out in the next few hours:

 

  • Add-on Updater: now requires NVDA 2019.1. In compliance with add-on compatibility checks in NVDA, add-on updates will go through compatibility range checks (current NVDA release falls between minimum and last tested NVDA version range). This version also registers Image Describer so updates to that add-on can be checked.
  • StationPlaylist Studio: various bug fixes.
  • Windows 10 App Essentials: requires NVDA 2018.4. Resolves some long-standing bugs, including Mail app closure bug (included in latest alpha release but not in stable) and NvDA announcing odd text in Settings app (it wasn’t live text, but rather an incorrectly labeled window).

 

For SPL Studio users:

 

  1. Version 18.09.8-LTS will also hit the air in a few hours.
  2. After installing version 19.04 and when you start Studio 5.1x, you’ll be greeted with a message about end of support for that Studio release from the add-on. Studio add-on 19.06 will require Studio 5.20 and later.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Groups,
Here is a simple way to read the status line using NVDA.
1. Launch File Explorer.
2.  Make sure your screen reader is in screen review mode by pressing NVDA + numpad 7.
3. Press shift + numpad 9 to read the bottom of the screen.
4.  You should hear something like 781 items 1 item selected 3.52 MB.
I do wonder just why the old read status line with NVDA + end key does not work and hasn't worked since Windows XP but the work around isn't that difficult.

I suspect that if you don't return to object Navigation mode, some things may not read as expected when you are working with the message list.  Is that the case?  I always return to object navigation mode when I am finished with screen navigation because you never know when staying in screen navigation may cause some sort of problem or problems when navigating, even when using the application commands such as arrow keys in a list.

Hi, Abbie.
