Hi Mary

Partially you are right but being honest: are you a fan of the office ribbon menu system. I know almost no blinds are not.

I’m not so interested in being fair to Apple in this instance. Microsoft has made the office suite reasonably accessible on the Mac and even on I devices. Apple hasn’t done that well with iTunes or iCloud for that matter. As somebody who owned a Mac for years, hoping that Apple would catch up with Accessibility there and eventually I went back to windows, I’m disgusted. Far more people in this world use windows then use a Mac. I love the eye devices. Apple needs to step up his game on windows. It’s that simple.

No, it's not addware.  There is a setting in chrome that allows those popups about tech news, and my son knows which one it is, but I personally haven't been able to find it in my copy of chrome, so I need to ask him again which setting it is to turn it off.  The news titles pop up in the system notifications area on the pc.  The setting in chrome turns those pop ups off, so they won't do that anymore.  I've looked through my settings, and couldn't find which setting was causing it, but I'll ask him again and repost here after I get it turned off. 

Those don't bother me as much as the flippin' login to my apple drive that keeps popping up every half hour or so, which seems also to be triggered by my first opening of chrome after a reboot.  I'd really like to turn those off.  I'll log in to the silly thing when I want to use it, not until then, so stop asking me already.

With regards to Chrome,

Has anyone else had ads popping up when Chrome is open?

After I close Chrome, I have to bring up the task manager and close several more instances of it to keep the pop-up ads from happening.

Chrome loads itself with multiple instances for more stability, each instance for a different process.

But I have gone through settings and seemingly turned off anything related to pop-ups and notifications, and it still happens.

Thanks.

Given the increasing popularity of Chrome among blind users, this article from Kim Komando is important.  The Chrome designers are implementing a change which is very bad for security, dumbing down the product for asthetics.  Let's hope the protests from security experts and others cause them to remember that they are not supposed to do harm, as part of their founding principles.

Hi

I fixed iTunes. I uninstalled iTunes 12.9 uninstalled all the apple stuff, deleted all folders inside of the appdata folder and program data folder in windows10. Then I went to the fileHippo website and got iTunes 12.8, the older july 2018 version installed it. I told it to never check for updates. Now iTunes works again. I’ll stay on 12.8 until they fix 12.9 and above.

Good morning.

I can offer you various pieces in braille format that are ready to be embossed, but that's the problem, because you prefer those midi files, right?

There is a software called Braille music editor which might help you with what you're needing.

Re: Brailliant Bi32 display and NVDA

Rui Fontes
 

As far as I know, the only way to increase the number of keystrokes available from Brailliant devices are:

1 - Manually add those keystrokes using the Input gestures dialog, found through NVDA, Preferences menu;

2 - Someone make an addon to increase the number of keystrokes available;

3 - Humanware or NVDA team, if they can have a Brailliant to use, increase the number of keystrokes available...

Hi there,
It depends what you want to do.
If you want to work with MIDI to compose and produce music, then I can recommend QWS for basic work, or Reaper if you need a more advanced DAW.
On the other hand, if you want to work with printing scores and so on, then I'm afraid I'll have to let somebody else answer that.
Hope that helps.

Hi Paul,

Press WINDOWS+. or WINDOWS+; to open the emoji panel, then either right
arrow through the items in the current section, press tab to move to the
sections and arrows to choose a new section, or start typing to search for
emoji, eg "cake"
🍰, "Smiling" or "firetruck" 🚒 (as with many other

"fire" to narrow the results down to a handful to get the fire truck).

Press ENTER to insert your chosen emoji, and escape to close the panel.

I have downloaded the nvda 2018.3 rc1 and put it into use.

but I am not entirely positive, there is still something here and there.

Like, I have already experienced a number of times, that I used the

emoticon add-on, often it goes well but suddenly without any apparent

reason it gets stuck.

With alt tab I can then go back to the text where I wanted to place an

emoji.

but it is not going well. Only after I have restarted nvda again can I

place an emoticon again.

are there more people who have the same problem?

with nvda 2018.2 I did not have these problems.

do I have to update the emoticon add-on?

is it available?

In addition my speech went away and I had to doddle in narator in nvda

preffs to get it back, but the trying a different version path doesn't

work, its probably got to do with the fact that itunes is an app just

like all the other apps.

 One to to achieve this could be converting the file into the pdf and then converting it back again to word. The footnotes will become the part of the main text and you would be able to read them with say all command.

Re: COLUMN AND ROW HEADINGS

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Quentin,

 

Very timely! I use excel a lot and need row and column headings spoken. However, when I go to Outlook, this setting causes NVDA to say Subject before speaking the email subject line as it appears in the Inbox. I have just followed your advice here and I now have a spreadsheet profile attached to Excel that turns on the row and column headings and another profile called email that is attached to Outlook that has all table detection turned off. I can now switch comfortably between the two applications without the nuisance of extra unwanted verbiage!

 

I really appreciate your advice.

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

To go one step further with that, if you never want column and row headings reported in say Firefox, but do want them in Excel, you can use "configuration profiles" to do it.

 

1. Set NVDA up how you "normally" want it.

2. Open the program you want setup differently (eg Firefox)

3. Choose "Configuration profiles" from the NVDA menu, or press NVDA+control+p.

4. Press alt+n to create a new profile

5. Press tab to move to "Use this profile for".

6. Press the right arrow to select the "Current application (Firefox)" radio button.

7. Press enter to create the profile (the name that we left blank between steps 4 and 5 is automatically filled in with the program name - Firefox in this case).

8. In Firefox, make any changes, such as turning off reporting of row and column headers.

 

Now that the profile is setup, any changes you make to most NVDA settings while that program is the active window, are saved to its profile (eg, changing keyboard echo, the speech rate, punctuation or even synthesizer).

 

(as always, for more useful tips like this, check out "Basic Training for NVDA" in eBook, audio or Braille from http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/)

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

Hi List

 

This is just a bit of information for those who don’t know.

 

When one reads information on Wikipedia, NVDA repeats the row and column headers by default.  This can be annoying when trying to read tables of information in browse mode, therefore, use the following steps to switch off row and column headings in NVDA:

 

  • Press NVDA+Ctrl+D to go to the “Document and Formatting” dialog. (NVDA key = Insert, numpad 0 or Capslock depending on the setting)
  • Press Alt+E twice to go to “row and Column headings”.
  • Press the Spacebar to check or uncheck the checkbox.
  • Enter to apply this setting.

 

Kind regards

Re: Brailliant Bi32 display and NVDA

Hi, the protocol is Humanware, I'm using it via USB, as for the commands, there's nothing I can find other than some basic commands which are quite limited. 

Warm regards, Claire Potter,   Check out my brand new website: www.pottersplace.me.uk

Just some questions:

1 - What protocol are you using? Humanware, OpenBraille or via Bluetooth?
2 - If you are using OpenBraille or Bluetooth , NVDA will recognize the Braille display automatically.

3 - Did you checked the tables of commands for your display in NVDA User Guide?

Hi all, I have recently started to use a Brailliant BI32 display, however I

would like some help with the following please. I want to know what the

NVDA support is like, as upon first impressions I am quite shocked at how

limited it is, bearing in mind that I want to execute common Windows

commands using the Braille display. I am talking about commands such as

pressing control to stop speech temporarily, commands such as alt+f4, and

in fact any commands which involve the function keys, along with commands

such as control+home and control+end, page up, page down, etc.  Can anyone

help please? Warm regards, Claire Potter
