Hi Tony,
Thank you so much. I'll install it right away as the ads are so annoying when you are reading an article and suddenly you have a road block at times 10 lines long!
Blessings
Pascal

Hi Pascal,
1. Try my TextNav addon for NVDA - It will skip most of the ads automatically for you. As a bonus, you can also skip over menu items and other junk on the web pages with it.

2. Alternatively, there are browser extensions that can remove ads for you. AdBlock and AdBlock+ are the two I know, I think both have versions for both Chrome and Firefox. Not quite sure about their accessibility, but from what I remember, you just need to install them and never touch them again - they'll filter all your traffic for you.

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

You could try UBlock Origin, that's the adblocker I'm using right now and it's just perfect for my needs.
I'm using Firefox, so not sure if this is available for other browsers.

Re: Before I fill out the survey

 

I would also argue that regardless of whether there is a "way around" the issues you're encountering, there is great value in a development team for any product to know about issues that require "ways around" that irritate users to no end.

Sometimes highly skilled users of certain software, not just NVDA, lose all perspective of what the experience is like for the unsophisticated user (and that term is not an insult, personal or otherwise, we were all unsophisticated users of everything we've ever touched at one point in time).   Having that input can result in improvements that would not otherwise have been contemplated because there was no awareness of need or desire.

Any adblocker I am aware of works very much like antivirus in that there are definitions that determine what is blocked.  All that I have used, which includes AdBlock Plus and uBlock Origin, wipe out any trace of ads of any sort.

Adblock Plus has "gotten soft" in that they will now by default allow what they call "unobtrusive ads" through, but you can simply check a setting to disable that.  It was a way to fund themselves.  I used it even after that to see what would get through, and I have to say that very little did and what did was, by any definition I'd use, unobtrusive.  This is what caused one of their developers to split off and create uBlock Origin.  I prefer uBlock not so much because it lets nothing through but because it does more than block ads.  It has selective script blocking capability, among a couple of others.

Simple answer:  yes.    It essentially wipes out all online ads anywhere they occur.   As new ones pop up the set of definitions gets updated very quickly and most of us never see them.  

I can't imagine browsing without an ad blocker.  They drove me mad with the visual distraction (not to mention auditory, for some) well over a decade ago and I cannot imagine that things have gotten any better, probably they've gotten worse.

This particular shared folder to my own Drive, such that I can access
It on Windows Explorer on my PC itself. In this scenario, there are a
Number of important files that are missing from the folder on my
Computer which I have had confirmed with my collaborators. Backup and
Sync from Google on my computer contradictorily claims that everything
has been updated.

I am unclear on how to resolve Nevada's laggy behaviour on Google Drive
On the web or instead be able to get all the files in the shared
folder as they are newly created and updated on my computer. I would
greatly appreciate any ideas or suggestions on a more elegant means of
using Google Drive and Docs. Things I intend to try for now are
confined to switching from Firefox to Chrome in hopes that an
alternate web browser may provide better support for NVDA with
Google's web apps.

Thanks.

P.S. I did press Ctrl+Alt+Z to enable screen reader support in Docs,
and switched views in Drive from grid to list.

Re: NVDA and ads blocker

 

The uBlock Origin ad blocker works beautifully with both Firefox and Chrome.  It's not an accessibility issue if you're bought.barded with the same ads as everyone else is. I haven't browsed without an ad blocker for many years now because the ads are ubiquitous and distracting.

                Pascale I don’t believe these sites violate the ADA. It’s a bit of a stretch to even go that far. I do understand where your coming from because I do visit:

www.wnd.com

a lot. The only solution is using JAWS’s Flexible Web feature which is beyond the scope of this list. The sites are a bear to navigate that’s for sure.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA and ads blocker
 

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

Blessings

Pascal

I'm not sure what Python book somebody posted, but here are a few
things. Here's Learn Python The Hard Way.


https://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/


Here's A Byte of Python.


https://python.swaroopch.com/


Here's Think Python.


http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/index.html


Here's one on programming games.

Finally, here's a link somebody posted a while back to stuff Joseph
wrote up.

Hopefully the book you lost is in there somewhere.
