Translating NVDA into Te Reo Māori option

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

hi guys


I know there are translators on this list and i have been asked about having a Te Reo Māori option  in NVDA.



I only speak English but i have been contacted by a person who speaks the above language  and can translate it into there language.


I am wondering how much is involved? I am guessing the whole user manual would have to be translated along with maybe quick reference and whats new?


What program would they have to use? Is there a easy way to do it? How would i start and also we would be new to try and do this for NVDA.


The above language is recognized in our country along side of english and sign language. 


We are not programmers so it would be a matter of starting from scratch doing this.


I just hope it does not scare us off translating it into there language.


I am wondering also  if it was just the user manual etc or the synth? as well. They might be able to get funding to do this?


any help would be great.

Re: NVDA and icons in the system tray

Hello all,
NVDA seams to have problems activating some icons in the system tray, for example the one for OneDrive. At first I thought that it was not a NVDA specific issue but a global screen reader / accessibility one, but after testing with Narrator as well, it turns out that at least the problem with OneDrive's system tray icon is specific to NVDA (Narrator is not affected).
To reproduce the issue, I press Windows+B to go to the system tray. I use up/down arrow keys to move the focus to the OneDrive's icon (OneDrive must be running). Then I press the space key to simulate a single left click with the mouse. All those are Windows and not NVDA commands. With Narrator, this works as expected and the pop-up window for OneDrive appears. With NVDA however, nothing happens. A person which cannot see the screen would wonder why it is so - what is different. I have some vision left and can see what's going on. For some reason, when pressing Windows+B and the system focus gets moved to the system tray area, NVDA also moves the mouse cursor there and for some reason, that causes the failure of the execution of the command with the spacebar to simulate a single left mouse click. With Narrator and with no screen reader running, the mouse cursor does not get moved to the system tray when the system focus gets moved there and the command gets executed correctly and the OneDrive pop-up window appears as it should.
So, does anyone (specially the NVDA developers) know why NVDA moves the mouse cursor to the system tray area when the system focus gets moved there? Because apparently this causes problems with some icons in the system tray. And now that I think of it, I wouldn't be surprised if the appearance of the problematic so called "Network Flyout" pop-up window under Windows 7 is caused by this behavior as well.
P.S.: I'm not asking for help/assistance with workarounds to activate such "problematic" icons in the system tray - I know how to handle them, including with the "SysTrayList" add-on for NVDA. This is not the purpose of this message. I'm asking why NVDA is causing the explained above behavior of the mouse when pressing Windows+B.
Thanks much in advance!

Re: Windows 10 Fast Start-up

Gene
 

I'm sure Brian will discuss this but I'll give my perspective.  Fast boot doesn't allow the system to reboot when you turn it off.  It's as though you always used hibernate or sleep instead of doing a full shut down or doing a full reboot. 
 
You should only use fast boot if you reboot your machine at intervals.  I'm not sure how long, perhaps a number of days, perhaps a week, you can experiment.  But just as you will get instability if you leave Windows running too long without a full boot or a full reboot, so to will you get instability by using quick boot and only that.  For the purposes we are discussing, it amounts to the same thing.
reboot on a schedule.  Reboot does do a full reboot. 
 
Also, if you install a program and you need to reboot the computer afterwords, don't use shutdown if you use fast boot.  Use the reboot command so you will get a full bootup.

I spend most of my computer time browsing with Microsoft Edge and working on documents and spreadsheets in MS Word and Excel 2016. I’m running the latest version of Windows 10. I need to use a screen reader for almost all of my work these days (magnification is no longer real useful for me).

 

Given my above uses, can someone give me a couple of examples of where mouse navigation (using the numpad) would be used? I’m trying to figure out if there would be any benefit in my learning mouse navigation commands. Thanks. Thanks.

Re: auto run file

ADRIAN POCOCK
 

Hi All

There is a way of autorun from a thumb drive by using the below

Use a U3 smart drive (or similar). These USB drives have a built-in firmware that presents them as CD drive when they are inserted into a computer. These kinds of USB flash drives are not affected by the changes in Windows 7. Autorun will work as it was a CD. U3 smart drives are primarily used to run programs directly from the USB flash drive and are generally not used to install programs. If you only need to run a program locally, and don't need to install, a U3 smart drive can be an option. But if you need to install files or update settings in the operating system (for example in the Registry) a U3 smart drive can not be used. The basic idea of U3 technology is that when the drive is removed from the host computer, there should be no traces left in that computer.

Regards Adrian Pocock
