Windows tab only shows the applications currently open plus some historical information. If you have a floating window from an application. This does not appear here.

You open this program. Lets say you press ctrl o to open a dialog. The dialog does not receive keyboard focus. Visually you can see the dialog and object Nav takes a lot of keystrokes to find it, if you are lucky. As the object might or might not have a title.
Windows tab, alt tab and pressing f11 do not show the dialog. As stated before, Jaws isnert+f10 and all application windows and any other open windows (dialogs) are listed. This is the feature I am issing from NVDA being able to access this. Mac also has the same feature when you open the open windows vo shift f2 from memory. From this discussion, it appears NVDA cannot do this by default.

All,
How do you find floating windows with NVDA other than using the
object nav? In Jaws there is a hot key that shows all open app and
windows. I cannot find a similar command.
A floating window for those who might not know the terminology. Is a
window that is open by a program and is not attached to the program
and some of them are not even attached to the application ring (alt
tab). If the program does not place the focus correctly into the
window. Then you cannot access the window by the keyboard. Thus the
workaround which Jaws provides of listing all the windows helps here.
Hope someone can help.
Second question, just thought of. Are you able to remap keys in NVDA?

How to tell NVDA which ONeCore voice shoud be used with language switching

Sylvie Duchateau
 

Hello all,

I have several voices in several languages installed on Windows as OneCore voices.

By default, I use a French male voice, Paul.

For English, I have several voices: Hazel, Mark, Susan, Zira, David, George.

I have activated language switching and dialect switching in the speech options.

So when I come on a web page, let's say, nvaccess.org, Mark is speaking.

If I want that NVAccess web site should be read with Hazer or Susan, is there a way to tell him to do so without using a specific profile?

Same question, if I am on a page that is written in French and English, I would rather have the language changes read by Hazer instead of Mark and that NVDA then returns to the French speaking Paul.

Thank you for your help.

Best

Sylvie

I have to say that my screenreader is better than yours like my voice is better than yours or whatever is often a thread that nobody can win as everyone's use case is different. That is not today of course that comparison of clever ways to do things in one screenreader cannot be learned from by the writers of another. If you look Narrators key layout now compared with the original one you can see who they have been copying quite clearly.

Hi David,

 

I have seen this also.  It is usually rare that the statistics are so far off, but I did see it.  I am wondering: when I first installed the add on a week or so ago and when I added new cities, I did not at first delete the old ones that were incompatible with the new Apixu format.  This is when I had loads of trouble.  I don't know if this inaccuracy is related, but when I went through my list and painstakingly tested and then removed all the non functional city references, statistics got near normal again.

If I'm not going wrong, there was an add-on that would allow us to 
see all the windows opened at the time, including, I think, those you 
are talking about.
 
I don't remember the add-on's name, though. Sorry :(

All,
 
How do you find floating windows with NVDA other than using the 
object nav? In Jaws there is a hot key that shows all open app and 
windows. I cannot find a similar command.
 
A floating window for those who might not know the terminology. Is a 
window that is open by a program and is not attached to the program 
and some of them are not even attached to the application ring (alt 
tab). If the program does not place the focus correctly into the 
window. Then you cannot access the window by the keyboard. Thus the 
workaround which Jaws provides of listing all the windows helps here.
 
Hope someone can help.
 
Second question, just thought of. Are you able to remap keys in NVDA?

Yeah, that’s what I do too.

You do mean Narrator? NVDA 99 percent of the time, then Narrator.

Hi everyone,

I just want to know what voice program you use most often. NVDA or
Moderator? I'm impressed with your opinion. It is true that when I
used the Moderator program and went to browse the Google chrome
website, for example Facebook, there is somewhat different than NVDA.

Re: weather plus addon

Hi David,


I have seen this also.  It is usually rare that the statistics are so far off, but I did see it.  I am wondering: when I first installed the add on a week or so ago and when I added new cities, I did not at first delete the old ones that were incompatible with the new Apixu format.  This is when I had loads of trouble.  I don't know if this inaccuracy is related, but when I went through my list and painstakingly tested and then removed all the non functional city references, statistics got near normal again.

Hi!

I tried the weather plus add-on again today, and it says that the temperatures are much higher than they really are.

For example, in Columbus, it says the temp is 93 degrees.

All of the information is wrong for every city I check around the world.

I did everything correctly, changing everything to the knew API.

Is anyone having trouble in the United States with this?

Is anyone using the add-on in the united states who can tell me how the information for every city is being given to them?

Have a great one, guys, and thanks for what you are doing!

I wonder if it is a simple case of decimal points being missed.
