Re: interesting issue with file explorer on windows 10

 

I actually think some of these settings should be in a different place to.

It was on and I turned it off but its to easily toggled.

Its about the only thing that happens, I am sometimes unaware I have hit it.

In the file operation progress dialog, there should be a button saying something of the sort of "Show more details" or "Show less details". If it says "Show less details", activate it. That way the file operation progress dialog will show less details. That should help to make NVDA report the progress bar in the dialog.

The dialog should show less details by default, but sometimes (probably due to accidental activation of the "Show more details" button by the user), it shows more details and that option is saved permanently until changed again by the user by activating the "Show less details" button.

The problem with this file operation progress dialog is that when it shows/displays more details about the current operation, the way it presents the progress bar is not normal. Instead of a standard progress bar, it displays an operation speed graph which vertically displays the operation speed and horizontally displays the progress. Apparently this non-standard way of displaying the progress bar brakes its detection and reporting by the screen readers. NV Access and Microsoft should investigate this and fix it.

Hi all.

I have noticed this for several weeks after the windows 2004 update on my computers, I have tried this on both.

I have also tried nvda 2017.3 to the latest with and without addons, and at least can confirm this aint nvda.

In windows explorer when performing file opperations, copy, delete, mainly, the progress bars do not beep.

Now progress bars will beep as they should in programs that they usually beep in like thunderbird, and if I try to access a network or large folder in file explorer they work as normal.

Only delete, move and copy are these progress bars not spoken, unless I tab back and forth, nvda will voice their percentages from time to time initially but will not do this unless I alt tab back and forth.

Its obvious that windows has changed something but its obviously working according to nvda as there are no log errors.

At least in the info log.

I assume its to do with the display of some bars.

Is this something nvda can get fixed so these work or is this something for microsoft to fix.

This aint a show stopper its just off putting that some bars do not read.

For me I do delete and copy files about especially if its a lot of data and from time to time I will want to know what all this is about.

I assume that its all this new universalising of the os which is causing this change.

Is it worth sending a debug to someone about this, and who do I send it at.

Re: interesting issue with file explorer on windows 10

 

Hmmm, it was on,  in previous versions of windows that was reversed I think.

Its off now.

Re: interesting issue with file explorer on windows 10

 

I will add, for the sake of clarity, that what @Kostadin Kolev said, checking to see if the control reads, "Show less details," and, if so, that means that the "More details" view is what's currently showing.

If you have "Show more details" showing, then you are currently toggled to the "less details" view.  It's always giving you the toggle text for the thing you'd be going to, that is would be showing, if you activated it.

Re: interesting issue with file explorer on windows 10

 

See:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7552
which appears to be similar.  Don't ask me why the person who initially reported it, way back when, included Windows 8.1 in the title yet says the issue is under Windows 10 in the description.

I'd be inclined to add on to that issue (and ask for a title correction, since it was never accurate) with better information on steps to reproduce.

Folks,

I've been using Google Chrome over the past couple of years and have
been a happy camper. However, having read about MS Edge Chromium's
better privacy/RAM controls and the Read Aloud feature, I decided to
give it a try. I really want to make the switch, but the following
issues appear to be showstoppers:
1. NVDA has issues focusing the cursor on the Address Bar, or what is
called the App Bar in Edge. That is, as I press Control+T or ALT+D, the
focus doesn't always land in the edit box. Sometimes I need to press
ALT+D several times in order to get the cursor there, and sometimes it
doesn't happen at all.
2. I've tried tinkering with Edge's settings, but it seems that Edge
doesn't provide a way to offer a blank new tab whenever I press
Control+T. That might not be a big deal and Google Chrome doesn't have
such a feature either, but I want to achieve this to take care of the
following issue in Edge.
3. Unlike Google Chrome, Edge/NVDA tend to report "Load complete", "Load
still in progress", "Opening new tab", etc. Even when I press Control+T,
I hear "Load complete" which is driving me nuts! At first I thought I'd
like them, but now I think there really should be a way to suppress
them! And I'm aware of the Win 10 Apps Essentials trick, but can't use
it because I don't want to lose other important announcements by
utilizing that.
4. I have difficulty accessing favorites in Edge -- what Google Chrome
calls Bookmarks. I've found the easiest way to do it would be pressing
ALT+F, followed by O, followed by Enter to open Favorites. However, even
there not all first-letter navigation presses work. For instance,
pressing A or S activates the "Add this page to Favorites" or other
options there instead of moving to Favorites which begin with A or S.
This is also true with a couple of other letter presses, so how do you
efficiently/quickly access Favorites in Edge Chromium? Moreover, in Edge
NVDA doesn't notify you if a so-called Favorite item is a folder or a
menu containing other items. Oftentimes pressing Enter on such items
doesn't force NVDA to read its subitems and you have to get the readout
manually.
5. This is more of an NVDA issue rather than an Edge issue. In Google
Chrome NVDA notifies me whenever I type a misspelled word into an edit
box via a buzz, but in Edge the buzz doesn't work at all. Guess either I
or someone else should report this on Github, but this is definitely an
NVDA issue with Edge 84.
6. Finally, the Read Aloud feature in Edge, which is really cool, has a
serious flaw: it adds long pauses, up to 2 or 3 seconds, between
sentences which makes the feature absolutely annoying. Any chance of
reducing the pauses? I've seen no settings for that.
So with all of these issues, should I go back to Google Chrome? Your
suggestions and work-arounds would be much appreciated.

Best,
Amir





Re: Issues with Edge Chromium: is Google Chrome still a more viable option?

Amir
 

I don't take it as "belaboring", but when my tests on two more machines are consistent with mine regarding ALT+D/CTRL+L, and considering the fact that I could bypass this by going back to Google Chrome, I decided not to spend time on fixing what I'm not sure needs a fix anyway.

Best,
Amir


Re: Issues with Edge Chromium: is Google Chrome still a more viable option?

For what it’s worth, this Edge/Chrome discussion reminded me of This WSJ article (Quit Chrome. Safari and Edge Are Just Better Browsers for You and Your Computer)

I read a few weeks ago. We’ll see if the upcoming Chrome improvements mentioned in the article materialize.

If CTRL+L/ALT+D aren't moving you to the address bar in new Edge then there is a corruption in your installation.

With the exception of a very few shortcuts, because Microsoft elected to maintain the Favorites terminology, pretty much every keyboard command applicable to Chrome (or any Chromium-based browser) is also applicable to new Edge.

You should try, Using SFC (System File Checker) and DISM (Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management) to Repair Windows 8 & 10, for starters.

Here, write a name for the profile and press tab, select with daum arrow current application and press OK. So, en the Window of Edge, press Control+NVDA+O, disable report notifications and press OK.

Hi Richard,

 

Thanks for your reply.

It's quite strange because I'm not moved to the App Bar/Address Bar upon pressing Control+T quite often. Even if I press Control+T, attempting to force the cursor to move to the App Bar with ALT+D fails quite often, and the cursor will remain on an HTML area belonging to the new tab page. I have none of these issues in Google Chrome, and wish Edge would allow us to use a blank page for its new tabs.

As for Favorites, I don't have Dropbox installed as I don't use it. The equivalent of the Bookmarks submenu in Google Chrome is Favorites in Edge, accessible via ALT+F+O followed by Enter, but it doesn't allow first-letter navigation for some of the letters as they activate some functions -- like A for Add this page to Favorites.

Amir, I'm not going to belabor the point beyond this post, but you do not know, and cannot know, where the issue lies.  Edge. like so much that comes with Windows 10, could be having an issue with a DLL that it needs to access.  The next version could still have that issue.  There exists a methodical approach which needs to be taken when this sort of issue occurs if you want to be as certain as you can be that all bases have been covered.

When peculiarities are noticed in any normal Windows functions in applications supplied by Windows, it is always worth doing the simple things, and what I suggested was simple, first.  It's something you can kick off, ignore while it's running, and check in on later.

For you, and others, I will repost the link to my "standard repair procedures" that one uses when oddities occur, and where you start will vary depending on the oddity itself:

Britechguy’s Standard Advice Regarding Windows 10 Issues and Their Repair

Whether you choose to read them or use them is entirely up to you.

Which, again, is highly atypical.  I cannot, and will not attempt, to make you do anything.  But you are having experiences that are outliers on the bell curve, which clearly suggest that something is not quite right.

I've been using Chromium-based Edge since before its wide release, both with and without a screen reader, and have not as yet encountered any of the issues you report.  Others have told you the same.   That suggests something idiosyncratic to your installation, whether of Edge or of Windows 10.

It's not that they fail all the time. Rather, they sometimes fail and sometimes work -- especially when Control+T is pressed. So I don't think the installation is problematic.
Given the overall smoothness of NVDA's behavior with Google Chrome compared with Edge and the misspelled notification issue affecting MS Edge, I'd rather return to Google Chrome and not go through the hassles of the Windows fix. BTW I reported NVDA's misspelled notification bug here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/11480
