Re: NVDA and amazon

Uhh, this is not true.  When you are on the accessible pages, there is a link on the page (I don't remember where, at the bottom most likely) that says return to desktop version of the site. Just click on that link, and you're back to the non accessible version of the site.  Why they remove functions from the accessible version of the site is something I'll never understand about companies who make mobile/accessible versions of their sites, but in most cases, they provide a method to get back to the desktop/main version of the site if needed.  I ran into this when I used the accessible version of the amazon site, then couldn't purchase/borrow kindle books on the pc.  I was extremely irritated until I found that link.

The trouble with using their access page is that you will get a cookie that is a pain to remove.
If you are happy with the access pages for your only Amazon page option, then going to the access page is okay, but I dislike the lack of detail on the access pages, and once you go there, you will never get back to a regular amazon page again, no matter how hard you try.
You will have to use a different browser or remove the access page cookie they put into your browser.
I wasted many hours figuring this out because no matter what I did, I could not ever get a normal Amazon page after going to the access site.

I've also noticed this  issue lately. You might try www dot amazon dot com slash access. I've  written this out because my BrailleNote Touch doesn't always translate web addresses correctly. Anyway, I haven't tried buying a Kindle book using this  site, but I was able to order an Echo Dot today without any trouble so it's worth a looksee. Hope this helps.

Re: Returns at Amazon.com don't work with screenreaders

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

Sounds like the same problem NVDA has with checking out/purchasing books on the site.  Maybe the same set of keystrokes will do the task.

Tab to the button, use the NVDA-numpad minus key to move the NVDA cursor to the button/link, then press NVDA-shift-numpad enter, and the button/link gets hit properly.  Give that a try and see if it works for you.

Hi,

I’m on a Jaws list at home, and I sent this issue to this list, because I could not check an item for returns to Amazon.com, and no matter what I did, it would not work, and that is twice I have had to call their customer service about this to return an item, and they told me that the disability department will be notified, but nothing ever happens.

I tried it with both Jaws and NVDA and three different browsers.

I am more proficient with Jaws, so I’d like to know if maybe there is something I don’t know about NVDA that could have done this for me.

Here’s part of the thread explaining the problem, there is my message and one or two replies of Jaws users that could not do the same thing…

 

Hi,

Jaws 2018, Windows 7 & IE.

I need to return an item, but I cannot because I cannot check the item.

I have moved to it with the X key and enter and space bar don't check it.

I tried insert + F5 and moved to it, and entering does not check it.

I try the continue button every time, in case it is checking it but not

saying

checked.

I have tried the number pad mouse click and that does not work.

Any other ideas?

 

 

have you tried tabbing away and back to the checkbox.

sometimes the status of the box will be spoken if you do this after you

press enter or space bar on it.

have you tried tabbing around on the page after the virtual cursor is turned

off.

sometimes if you start at the top of the screen and keep tabbing you will

land on the check box, edit box, combo box etc.

Well they say its an nvda issue, I wouldn't mind except itunes is the
only way to update things, saying with the death of the store on
windows, unless I use it for podcasts and such on windows which I
probably won't there is almost no reason for me to ever use it except if
I need to store a full backup, and I know a program like contacts backup
will work for contacts, the rest is on icloud and the storage rates are
fair enough.

It does appear that the itunes universal and the itune pc app have the
same interface but the fact is I do wander if the itunes app was
accessible in the first place, I never needed to check.

However, while I will soldier on with this, this latest issue may push
me off of ios, not because its quite accessible but if I can't use the
windows configuration and sync software properly then if it goes pair
shaped then I have no chance at all.

On the other hand, with android the chance that my software to do things
from windows is going to be accessible is probably low to and I know
where to get apple stuff and it is only 1 single system to learn which
is probably why I will still end up using it, as long as I have an old
device, this latest issue is starting to make me think twice about
putting all my stuff in the apple environment.

I have family now with apple devices with a lot of stuff, once your
stuff is in apple its going to have to stay there and you will have to
continue to use it, and while I won't get the latest something I am
seriously thinking on my next device being with the competition.

To be honest if I didn't care for apps and as long as I have a 32 bit
unit about I can continue using symbian phones for the rest of my life
but there are so many reasons to actually get up and use apps these days.

Re: google domains configuration web site seems inaccessible

Rusty Perez
 

The frustrating thing is that I spoke to support people on the phone
and they were unable to actually do the tasks which I wanted to
accomplish. They said that for security reasons, they are unable to
log in to my account and perform any tasks on my behalf. This is only
slightly better than Hover who doesn't even have phone staff.
the girl on the phone suggested that I find a sighted family member to
help me out.
I didn't get irate, I just asked to speak to a persona in charge of
accessibility. Instead of putting me through, she filed a support
claim on my behalf.
I tried to make her understand the frustration I feel at not being the
level of support I am requesting.

Anyway, I can get this done, just not on my own apparently.

Hi.

 

well just tried versions of nvda 2017, 2016 2015, 2014 and 2012, same

issues so no help there I also tried 2018.3rc1 here and no joy.

 

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.

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.

Cheers.

I have PDF scores of a lot of piano music and wonder if there is any

three or more notes across both hands, my ear being unable to figure

I'd love a means of converting a PDF or a midi file into a text from
which I can determine the notes ... the durations are less important
for me since I can remember how the pieces sound.

It's funny, I just asked a sighted friend for help with three notes in
Chopin's first ballade which I was struggling to remember just this
morning!

Thanks for any ideas (and no, I never learned to read Braille music)

hi, please help me one mor times.
what you say was correct but how can I enable the emoji's
nvda 2018.3 rc1 don't read any emoji but i know it is possible.
 can I put it on or off somewhere and with which key combination does that have to be done?
thanks in advance

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 search fields, you don't necessarily have to type the full thing - I typed "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.

best forum members,

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?

with a curious greeting

paul otter

Re: google domains configuration web site seems inaccessible

Ervin, Glenn
 

I might add, if it takes assistance from a list for help getting through a web page, for someone who has pretty good computer and screenreader skills, then even if there is a non-basic solution that was later learned by help from a list, I don't consider the page to be accessible.
I'm glad we can be here to offer assistance, but most Blind users struggle to learn all the commands we teach them, and if these things are challenges for those of us who can do just about all of it, then what hope is there for the majority of screenreader users?

Re: link for firefox 52 esr last version to support full webvisum

I'm not sure what the problem is.  I don't know if this is still the case but in the old days, recaptcha used to use clips that you were supposed to write the words for.  But there may be some problem with this recaptcha because I've never heard of an I'm not a robot recaptcha using anything but numbers and letters.

Other then the Accessible Apps guy who was charging something like $3 a month for a CAPCHA solution, no one else has really given a shot to recreate a similar one. Sure it sucks that you have to maybe pay for something that can be argued should be free, but those are the breaks. That or another intrepid developer can invest their time and money and skill into an accessible CAPTCHA solver out of the kindness of their heart until something’s actually done about the inaccessibility. Even if you pay, just deduct it from your taxes.

That said though, I can’t recall the last time I really had an issue with a CAPTCHA. Everything’s the I’m not a robot or audio option for the most part now.

Gene,

         God only knows why your general stance is to say "black" when anyone else says "white," but it's as annoying as hell.

          I got an invitation from a member here in 2016.  I went through the registration process.  That's where the process stopped.  Nothing comes back.

          If anyone, and I do mean anyone, can complete a new account registration for Webvisum there are a very great many who would love to know how to do so.  I haven't seen a single example of success in several years and know that my own, following their instructions and getting an invitation from a member, went into the great bit bucket in the sky.
