This explanation is long.  It explains how to do this and gives an example of an efficient way to use this setting and how it may benefit you.

 

In firefox, it is a few steps to get to the place where you change the setting.  But once there, if you leave a window or tab opened, you can change it between on and off by just pressing enter in that window or tab.

Here is how you get to the setting:

In the browser address bar, type about:config.  Look at what I wrote character by character to see exactly how to type it.

Press enter.

A warning will come up.  Press the space bar.

you are now in a search field.

The first time you do this, once you are in the search field, you may want to bookmark the page for the fastest use in the future.  If you follow the bookmark, you will be on the warning message so press the space bar.

 

In the search field, type the following exactly as written:

pt.en

Tab once.  I think there is only one item in the results.  But if not, there will be very few.  The item you want says JAVA script default enabled or something very similar.  Select it if you are on it with the space bar or down arrow and up arrow.  Press enter.  it will then say
JAVA script user set bullian false or something similar. 

It is now off. 

Leave that Window opened.

Open a new window for your browsing with control n.  Or open a new tab with control t.  if you know how to move from tab to tab and from window to window, open whatever you want. 

 

If you go to a page that requires JAVA script, move to the settings window, press enter, go back to the page and reload it with f5.  If you know in advance that the page requires JAVA script, you can change the setting and then load the page as usual in the other window or tab.

As I said in another message, many pages now require scripts to function properly.  but when you are dealing with a site where certain pages do and certain ones don't like The New York Times Site, if you do the following, you will have easier to navigate article pages.

Open the home page or another page that requires scripts.  I don't know which do and don't in general.  the home page does as does the New York Times in print page.  You can tell by experimentation and what you know about sites you have visited if the pages display as they should when scripts are off.  The Times home page doesn't show all content if JAVA is off.  It shows some and for just a quick look at some important articles, that's fine.  But perhaps thirty to forty percent of the articles can't be seen if scripts are off.  So if you want to see all the articles and read them conveniently with scripts off, do the following:

Open The times home page, for example with Scripts enabled.

Then switch to the settings window and press enter to turn scripts off. 

Now go back to the other page.  Scripts will still be running on that page because it was opened before you changed the setting.  Find an article you want to read.  Use Shift enter instead of just enter.  The article will open in a new window and scripts won't be runnning.  The page may load noticeably faster and there will be considerably less interruptions on the page for things like advertising. 

Once finished, close the window with alt f4.  You will be back in the home page window, just where you left off. 

 

As I said, it's somewhat or rather geeky, but you may see benefits well worth having if you experiment and try seeing how things differ when scripts are allowed and not.

This would probably be considered a somewhat geeky solution but it is effective and something some people might want to know about.  I avoid a lot of problems on pages that don't require JAVA script by having it off on such pages..  Alot of what you are describing, intrusive ads, refreshing pages, videos or audio that plays, are often displayed or played by use of JAVA scripts. 

 

As one possible solution to the audio problem when JAVA scripts are on, I saw in one browser, it may have been Chrome, a setting that allows you to tell the browser not to play audio on web pages.  I don't recall the exact wording and it might be different such as referring to audio and videos or a variation.  Others may know about that setting.  I saw it in passing recently but I didn't try to remember anything about it. 

 

Increasingly, pages require JAVA scripts to work properly but on a page with an article, you usually don't need to have it on.  I can explain more how I do this reasonably efficiently in Chrome and Firefox if people want to know.

The ADA says things should be accessible.  I don't know if inconvenience ever rises to a level of a violation of accessibility laws, but it often doesn't.  I would suggest, when problems of formatting or such as you are describing now are found, that you ask if people know of ways to reduce or eliminate the problem instead of first resorting to a legal remedy which you will likely not get support for by institutions or those who bring accessibility actions and which may take a long time to be ejudicated in the court system. 

 

In this case, while I don't know what browser you are using , try another browser.  Also, if you do or don't want to try another browser first, Some browsers have a reading view.  If they don't, you can use an add-on.  This removes a lot of extraneous material from web pages and it may remove these long links. 

 

also, there is an NVDA add-on I saw discussed about a month ago that may deal with a problem like yours but I don't recall the name and it may do other things you don't like.

Hi All,

Today some pages are so riddled with long links that are ads, some of which are several lines long, making reading with a screen reader very annoying and difficult.  Example of pages are Breitbart.com, wnd.com… they are becoming very common which, in my view, is a violation of the ADA that we may need to look into and report.

Is there any way to skip the ads?  Is there a freeware ads blocker that works well with NVDA?

Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Re: Corrupted NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi John,

NVDA 2018.4.1 is the latest stable build of NVDA.  Possible confusion because it did, in fact, come out in 2019, but it is a point release for 2018.4 (as in, identical to 2018.4 with just a minor update to address a specific bug).

It sounds like the machine might be going into sleep mode or at least screensaver and starting to power down some things.  In the advanced power options you can set options such as sleeping USB ports for instance.  If your Braille display is connected via USB, then if it goes to sleep, when you wake up the laptop by pressing something, it may then need to take a few moments to reconnect.

I'm really getting tired of your harassment.  I never start these arguments.  You go out of your way to argue with me.  Every such discussion is started by you.  You made a charge.  let's have some examples.  Give specifics about when I have been negatively critical, not positively critical, of list members. 
At times, I comment on how a list member does something related to using Windows or a Windows program but that is constructive criticism and I assume you aren't referring to such occasions.
 
If other list members want to comment and present examples, I'll be happy to hear them.  If I am doing something I am unaware of or that strikes people the wrong way, I'll be happy to consider comments.  But please write me off list at this address:
so as not to clutter the list with administrative and offtopic discussion.  Also, if you want the list owner to see our discussions, please use the owner's address.  I'll see your messages along with the owner. 
 
Since I am a moderator, if I am, even inadvertently and without realizing it, creating or contributing to an unpleasant list environment, then the owner should be aware of it.  People need not be intimidated about writing to me.  I don’t hold grudges and I hope that, if people have constructively critical comments, that they will let me know.

Re: Open Office/libreOffice

OO will open .dox files, but not save them, I think. You can save in the older style .doc files, which Microsoft Office can work with to this day.

 

There are definite accessibility quirks with both Libre and Open Office, depending on which screen-reader you use. I thought OO worked slightly better with JAWS whereas Libre seemed to work slightly better with nVDA, and even seem to remember someone in an earlier discussion on this list explaining why that was so.

OO, Open Office, is a more accessible program than LO is, but it is also a far worse program with missing basic features, such as working with Docx files. LO is a far better program, but if you need something complex for a huge project, neither works well. LiBreOffice is the best open source alternative but is less accessible than OO.

I have no argument with the advice you've given, as everyone has their own tolerance for risk.

I will note, however, that what you propose doing would unleash exactly the same macros as my method does once the file is open.  That's why I don't find Protected View useful for myself.   I have never opened anything I have no intention of interacting with, and the moment you unprotect a given file it's unprotected.  For myself, I just see no advantage in doing this on a case by case basis since I'm strict about what I'll open.

If one has to deal with a lot of Office file throughput, though, and you don't have the need to interact with many of them, Protected View can come in handy.

Re: accessing a spreadsheet in "protected view"

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Mary,

Brian gave you some very useful information on managing protected view. I must say that I like the protection it gives me. I prefer to be covered when a dynamic program like an excel workbook is sent from any source, even a trusted one! Excel is designed to carry macros and other devices that could be a threat from the wrong source or from a damaged source with no harm intended.

As soon as you open the workbook, just press f2 and tab once to "OK" and the full workbook is open and available to navigate as normal.

Similarly, in a Word file attachment it will normally come in protected view and, again, just press alt to open the ribbon bar, left arrow to "file", down-arrow into the ribbon options and tab twice to remove protected view.

Be careful before suspending protected view.

All the best,

Cearbhall

Hi all,


I admit that I am really not very knowledgeable when it comes to working with spreadsheets. So maybe this is just an elementary question.


I got a spreadsheet from the farmer who does my local CSA. It contains
products, prices per specified unit of product and the 12 months of the
year, including showing, with an X in the boxes for months when said
products are not going to be available. And then there is a place to
fill in the amounts you want for each month and each product, and it
calculates your total for the year.


But when I open this in Excel from Office 2016, it says it is in
protected view, and when I arrow around, all I get are numbers for the
given cell I'm on, plus the word unlock. And I'm not seeing any actual
data from the sender of the sheet, i.e. no names of items, months etc.
So I haven't a clue how this thing is actually laid out. This protected
view is the way she sends this out, and apparently, it works okay for
the sighted folks. So, any advice on how I can do some magic on this
would really be appreciated.


Mary

There are so many products that use this service model, and have for many, many years now, that this comment is nonsense.

You can use Office up through 2016 (and I think even 2019) as an installed program if you wish and there will be support for same for some years to come.

You certainly must never have been a JAWS user, either, as their model is very much "as a service" if you wish to have a version of JAWS that's keeping up with "what's happening now."

I strongly prefer installed programs that I am not paying for over time, but there's nothing wrong with selling service in that way.  Buying a high-end version of Office outright is a multi-hundred dollar proposition.  It will take quite a while to equal what you'd have paid for the installed version via "as a service" delivery model and you keep getting updates as well.

Hi,

I think I experience the same when I edit a formula in a cell. However, I don't have to close Excel, I just press alt+tab to swop to another window and then press alt+tab to come back again into Excel and then NVDA responds.

Perhaps you could try that? Then you would not have to go through all those tedious steps of saving the workbook, closing it and then reopening it again.

And the question, "Upgrading from what?/What existing version of Office are you using?," comes to mind.

I just recently upgraded from 2010, which is getting rickety but is still supported, to Office 2016.   Office 2016 will still be supported for some years to come, and with the availability of recycled licenses out of the EU one can upgrade to the top version, Pro Plus, for very little money.

Office is updated frequently so.

True, and I have no idea how this misattribution happened.  I could have sworn that I replied directly to the post Travis offered, but clearly I used Gene's quote of Travis's material after his own offering.

Gene and I are on the same page, and I had no intention of attributing the comment saying that "as a service delivery is nonsense" [paraphrased] to Gene.

Re: NVDA and ads blocker

 

George,

         First, you need to have navigated to the page on which you wish to have it disabled.  Then:

1. Hit ALT to throw focus to the Chrome Menu button, then left arrow over until you find the uBlock Origin menu button (and, if you happen to have installed uBlock Origin Extra under Chrome, make sure that you're not on that button).   Hit Enter to activate the uBlock Origin Menu.

2.  Tab once to land on the "Disable uBlock Origin On This Page Button."   Hit Enter or Spacebar to activate it.

3.  uBlock Origin is now deactivated for that page until or unless you repeat this process again.  The Disable button is really a toggle - if uBlock Origin is enabled it disables it and vice versa.
