Re: Questions Regarding The Donation Form on Nvaccess.org

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi David,

No problem at all, and thanks for the clarification, it will help prevent others from investigating what you've already solved.  I was going to say I just tested this with NVDA myself and it clearly reported each radio button group as I moved between them, both in focus and browse modes.

I didn't think there was anything too odd about the form that another screenreader should have trouble with.... But I'm glad it works with NVDA at least - that's the main thing I can help influence and control!

All the best, and thank you for your generous donation, we very much appreciate it!

Quentin.

Subject: [nvda] Questions Regarding The Donation Form on Nvaccess.org

 

Hi. As I wanted to upgrade my copy of NVDA from the release candidate to the final 2020.4 release I decided to download the executable file from the Web site so that I could access it offline in the event that I should need to do a reinstall. I also decided that I wanted to make a donation to NV Access while doing so and I will say that I was successful in doing so.

On the donation form is a series of radio buttons for specific amounts along with one to specify a custom amount, which I’m fine with. The one thing that confused me is that there appears to be two separate groups of radio buttons in one list. The first group contains several amounts along with an “other” choice. Following that are more radio buttons in the same list, with another radio button labeled “other.” I gather that the first group of radio buttons are for one-time donations and the second group is for monthly donations but please correct me if I’m misinterpreting what I’m hearing.

The problem is that there is no explanatory text to differentiate these two seemingly separate groups. I kind of figured this out when for the second group Paypal indicated that I would be making regular donations to NV Access but the first group seemed like a one-time donation. If this is the case I’d like to make a suggestion that these be separated into two separate lists with explanatory text clearly indicating the purpose of each list: one time donations vs monthly donations.

Again, if I’m not interpreting this form correctly by all means please do let me know. I’m only pointing this out because those of us who are able to do so are quite happy to donate to NV Access due to how important NVDA is to so many people.

Hi all,

 

I am trying to install Vocalizer expressive driver add-on version

3.0.14 on the PC at my job, and I have an issue with instalation of

mentioned add-on.

 

When I try to install the driver add-on, I get the following message:

3.0.14 has been blocked. An updated version of this add-on is

required, the minimum add-on API supported by this version of NVDA is

I have NVDA version 2020.4, Windows 10 build 14393.

I have been trying to install this add-on since NVDA 2020.1, but same

message appeared every time.

 

How can I fix this issue and install the driver?

 

Many thanks in advance!

NVDA 2020.4 released

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi everyone,

NV Access is pleased to announce that version 2020.4 of NVDA, the free screen reader for Microsoft Windows, is now available for download. We encourage all users to upgrade to this version.

NVDA 2020.4 This release includes new Chinese Input methods, an update to Liblouis and the elements list (NVDA+f7) now works in focus mode. Context sensitive help is now available when pressing F1 in NVDA dialogs. Improvements to symbol pronunciation rules, speech dictionary, Braille message and skim reading. Bug fixes and improvements to Mail, Outlook, Teams, Visual Studio, Azure Data Studio, Foobar2000. On the web, there are improvements to Google Docs, and greater support for ARIA. Plus many other important bug fixes and improvements.

Please note, after updating any software, it is a good idea to restart the computer. Restart by going to the Shutdown dialog, selecting “restart” and pressing ENTER. Updating software can change files which are in use. This can lead to instability and strange behaviour which is resolved by rebooting. This is the first thing to try if you do notice anything odd after updating.

To read more, and download NVDA 2020.4, please see: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2020-4/

Kind regards

Quentin.

Is there an audio editor other than Gold wave  that will let you record drops along with the music bed underneath the voice?

I mostly want to use it for simple recordings from 30 seconds to one minute in length.

Any help, would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have the caps lock set as an NVDA key? it doesn't sound like it. If you set the caps lock to work as an NVDA key, the command will work as expected and bring up the links list.

For me, capslock + F7 brings a popup "Do I want to turn on caret browsing?" from the Chrome browser. Version 2020.1 Interestingly, With input help on(capslock + 1) and I press capslock + F7 this reports NVDA + F7 and not the expected "Browse mode elements list."


Re: list of links

Gene
 

That's a common feature now. Just tab to the no or cancel or whatever is provided in the dialog and cancel the option. I'm not sure what you want to know about it. It is of little or no use to blind users. it provides sighted people with what we already have, a virtual cursor. Firefox has the feature as well. I believe the Brave and Edge browsers have it as well.

Re: list of links

The elements list in NVDA 2020.3 and earlier only works in Browse mode - so if you are in an edit field or other form field and NVDA is in Focus mode, the elements list won't come up.  In NVDA 2020.4 (due out very shortly) the elements list works in focus mode as well.  You can try out the release candidate of NVDA 2020.4 here: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2020-4rc1/

I have already responded to this where you added to another topic.

Please do NOT post the same question to multiple topics on the same list, or multi-post across lists.  Ask once, and wait a reasonable time for an answer before asking elsewhere, and never ask on two topics in the same venue.

Are you positive that you've got the NVDA key held down before hitting F7?   You might also have a wonky NVDA key on your keyboard.

F7 alone is the toggle for caret browsing in the Chrome browser.  It seems like the "INS+" or "CAPS LOCK+" part of the shortcut for the elements list is not being detected by NVDA.

I looked at it very briefly awhile ago out of curiosity. I still have it
on one of my machines and unless others discuss Wave Pad, I'll write a
little about it after I look at it and play with it a little again to
refresh my memory. This may be a case where screen review, object
navigation, or both, are necessary to get good access to the program.

Aside from that, are there certain specific things you want to do with the
programs? If so, telling us what they are may result in discussions of
the best programs to do those specific things. the programs you are
asking about may be the best or there may be better ones even if
accessibility or usability is good for all of them.

I don't use either of those, but I do use the zulu dj software.
For basic stuff it is accessible, but the buttons are not labeled and you
cant speed up and slow down pitch with keyboard.
But for basic dj'ing and crossfading and cuing it works great.
Hope this helps

Re: Can’t save NVDA configurations

Quentin Christensen
 

Are you using an installed or portable version of NVDA?  And also which version?  If portable, where is it located?  It would need to be somewhere you have write access to.

If you press NVDA+control+c to save settings (or choose "Save configuration" from the NVDA menu by pressing:  NVDA+n, then S) - does it save the settings then?

Quentin.
