Those are just some of a list off google searches on screen reader history I found in like 2 minutes.

Now, your friend is welcome to email me, but I don't know everything,

I came from the 80s which is probably as far back as it goes though there was some work in the 70s.

There were a lot of readers out.

I would contact the major blind organisations to see about getting a history of screen readers, there will be archives somewhere.

For my part I have sent this message at my local foundation tech list and the dolphin list.

There are still some old timers like myself, not many of us now though but still a few from the 80s.

I know histories started from the 60s the first synths were made in the 30s.

Most screen readers were for dos, I don't know every one of them though.

About 10 years back before all the groups changed round it was easier to contact some of these groups.

If your friend can wade through the oldgames.7z file and are able to read the key*.txt files in the keysoft folder and the hw*.txt files in the mastertouch folder then she should get some idea of some of the keynote synths.

Technically if you payed me some cash, I do have a lot of old manuals about, but I'm not shipping the physical coppies to itily for nothing.

Re: Problem With Submit Button On My Banking Site

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Now the last time I ran into this one it was an invisible item on the screen that had to have something filled in before the submit button was available. I know this might not be helpful, but when I finally got to the bottom of it its was a graphic tat said in the picture. spammers should not click this item or was it the other way around. Its was something like that, something only visible to eyes that had to be interacted with in some odd way, one supposes to stop bots trying to log in.
If that is the reason for this, you need to contact the web team and point out they also exclude blind users.

Subject: [nvda] Problem With Submit Button On My Banking Site


Hi Group,


I have been using my bank's online services for a number of years now. They have a double security set up. When you first log in, you must pick a captcha word or expression and save it and remember it and also a graphical image. Every time Windows gets a major update or sometimes it's an architectural change to the website/security of the bank (whatever that is) you have to reset the security settings.


It happened again this week. I tried logging in and instead of just the nromal user name and password, I had to reset the security settings. Actually this hasn't been as bad as it could be because each of the images (there are a choice of 20 in all) is defined by NVDA as image 200.jpg, image 201.jpg image 202.jpg and so on. These images are consistently associated with the same images, so that isn't the problem. This time however, when I had made my choices and move down to the submit button and try to click it with the space bar, the enter key, the routing/mouse keystrokes, nothing happens. I tried this with NVDA, Narrator and JAWS. Nothing works.


I seem to remember that on this list, there is some sort of aid for such instances where you can actually take control over the mouse with keystrokes and click it in this way. Am I wrong about this? It might have been called something like Golden Cursor or something. I am using a desktop PC with Windows ten latest builds.


if anyone nows what I am talking about, I would greatly appreciate some advice.


Thanks in advance for anyhelp.

Re: Santander UK online banking - logon problem

Clive May
 

Hi


I'v just logge din with no trouble.  The usual 2 stage process was there.  Nothing about boxes and numbers or anything.

The firs tpage asks for user number and the second for the password or pin number

On 25/09/18 21:33, Brian Crabtree wrote:
Attempts to log into the UK Santander online banking website are causing me some frustration and I wonder if anyone has mastered the challenge that I am currently failing in.

The first login page asks for my User number - it’s a plain edit field and causes no problem.

The page which comes up next asks me for 3 characters from my password and 3 from a 5-digit security number. Here is where the problem lies.

The instructions read “ Enter the following characters of your password” and “Enter the following numbers of your security code”.

Below each is a line of numbers - first, second, third, fourth, etc, which can be voiced by NVDA.

Below each line of numbers are 3 edit boxes, the placement of which determines which characters need to be entered - so, for example, there may be a blank space under first, another blank space under second, then an edit box under third, and so on.

The problem is to figure out under which numbers the edit boxes are placed, and I have run out of ideas.

Can anyone who uses Santander online banking in the UK explain to me how they get round this problem, to complete the login?

Hi.

Well today I started the computer on my win7 unit.

Every so often nvda does not come up right, the systray icon does not show and I get an nvda thing showing a window.

I have to exit and restart it to get nvda to run properly.

It happens so little that I don't usually bother with it.

And it hardly happens but today I decided since people have been sending issues about nvda of late to pull it from an old log and send it over.

Its not urgent as such but here is the error anyway.

BBC Web site has been changed again

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

It seems dear reader that the bbc web site even for people in the UK is asking you to log in, but my credentials are regected. After some messing about it seems unable to be satisfied. it took my re registration then asked me to sign in, and then said it was invalid as it needed a character which was not a letter. So back we go and try re registering and add a number we then get invalid characters in your password.
I know its probably not NVDA related unless my computer is sending something not told to me, but this is merely the radio I player, a service in the UK which has no age limit or licence requirements and used, until today be just accessible and palyayable.
Why web sites seem to think they can mess people about I have no idea.
It wants age date of birth post code etc, which is silly for radio catch up.
This has also stopped the Web Ie utility from working as well as it cannot download the program list any more.
I do sometimes winder if those who build site think before they do stuff.
I also understand that the new site from my energy supplier is now completely inaccessible as well.
Oh its no my day. Amazon Echo went off line about 9 am and is still down.
I think I'll go for a lie down.

Re: NVDA remote

 

Well, you and the client can keep coppies of your keys though to be honest especially if you autoconnect to something, your system should be password protected so no one can get access to the files.

Sadly there is no way to secure the text files themselves, for autoconnections.

If the files got encripted maybe it would be more secure.

If a key never changes, a zipped protected file would be fine to save them I guess.

However, for safety's sake I'd always use the random key generator, each time you start a new session your client will need you to say a random key back to them.

Its how all the major support people do it including microsoft, I have seen especially with all the computer scams that 4 keys need to be entered in boxes for extra security.

2018.3.2 double speech in windows10 mail

Alexandre Alves Toco
 

Hi all.

While the e-mail I forwarded to demonstrate the problem is in portuguese,, I hope it could help.

The problem is:

If I read this e-mail using the arrow Keys in the mail app, some sentences are double read. It happens also with the first link. 

However, if I use the tab key to navigate the links, the first link  is speaked correctly.

I also accessed gmail through google schrome and read the e-mail there. The sentences are not duplicated.

 

I guess it is related to the e-mail’s format (it has tables).

Please, forgive this O.T. This is the only list I'm on, so I thought of asking here.

She doesn't seem to find any suitable material.

Would anyone have any suggestions as to where to look for some documentation that might help her?

I know the request is a bit vague, but that's all I ahve for now.

Re: Problem With Submit Button On My Banking Site

There is one more thing you can try.  I have no idea if it might work.  Move to the button in the usual way.  Then, turn off browse mode and press the space bar.  I doubt that will work but its one more thing to try.

Insert numpad minus has nothing to do with what you are doing.  the first procedure you described is the way you move the mouse to the current position and then left click it with numpad slash.  But whether the golden Cursor might be any more successful, I don't know.  If you had a physical mouse, you might be able to click it after using numpad insert slash to move the mouse to the button and that might work.  Or you might have to actually move the physical mouse to the correct position, then click it.  I don't know which of these might work.

I want to make sure I am understanding this correctly.  I have been using the keystrokes insert + numpad slash when highlighting the submit button and have then pressed the numpad slash by itself to try to activate it.  I have also tried insert + numpad minus to highlight the item and have then used numpad slash by itself to try to activate it.  Am I missing something else?

Thanks again.

I call it the virtual mouse but technically, I'm not sure what it should be called.  As I understand it, whether you route the mouse with the NVDA numpad command or with the Golden Triangle, you are routing the actual thing the physical mouse moves.  You can see what you can do in this case but I wouldn't be surprised if you have to use a physical mouse and click the physical mouse.  there are times, I don't know why, when I can move the mouse with the numpad command to the right place and clicking it does nothing.  I suspect I could use a physical mouse and click it successfully instead.

Well, whatever it works with it actually moves the physical mouse pointer along with it.    The position is expressed based on the actual screen resolution, which is why if you're sharing location data you have to be sure that the screen resolution on both machines is the same and that the window in question is maximized.

When I move the mouse using Golden Cursor it moves precisely as though I were moving the mouse itself (but, of course, a bit more orderly since arrow keys are being used).

Insert numpad minus has nothing to do with what you are doing.  the first procedure you described is the way you move the mouse to the current position and then left click it with numpad slash.  But whether the golden Cursor might be any more successful, I don't know.  If you had a physical mouse, you might be able to click it after using numpad insert slash to move the mouse to the button and that might work.  Or you might have to actually move the physical mouse to the correct position, then click it.  I don't know which of these might work.
