But you can look at the underlying link and see that it is a groups.io link.  Skepticism is important but so is knowing how to determine whether something is what it seems to be.  I haven’t gotten such a message and I don’t know if the link is written out or if it is a link like a click here or unbounce link but it is important to know how to see the underlying link if it isn’t shown.
 
Most things are spam and scams but consider the .unlikeliness of a spammer .knowing you are a member of groups.io.  Its possible, but ..unlikely.  it would take an inordinate amount of work.  Your e-mail account would have to be hacked and your messages monitored so as to determine how to get you to do something. 
 
Someone should be able to tell you how to see the underlying link in cases where it matters like this.

The last time I bounced, a message was not sent to verify this, I think though if you look on the web  you will see if you were  unbounced. So that is another way.

What follows is not aimed at Don, specifically, but needs to be restated every once in a while.

When Groups.io sends a message to you saying your messages are being bounced, it should contain what is often called an "unbounce link" that you are asked to activate to fix the situation.

That is all you need to do.  Test messages are not necessary.

I could have sworn that Groups.io also sent you a confirmation that you're no longer bouncing after activating the unbounce link, but I could be wrong about that.

Hi Pranav,

 

You can play media in slide show mode if you use Narrator. I agree, NVDA should really support this, too.

 

JAWS can also recognise headings, tables and so on in slide show mode.

Hi all,

 

I second third and whatever number that request for better powwerpoint support. I need to use the program all the time and NVDA’s support is significantly lacking. I have not tried jaws and narrator.

 

One problem is tables as has already been highlighted in this thread. The next issue is the reporting of object and slide alignment. I need to know if all elements on a slide are visible. Yes, we do get that announcement but suppose I have a table obscured by a picture, where should I move the picture to make sure that both the table and picture are visible?

 

The last issue is playing media in slide show mode. I cannot activate any media in slide show mode.

 

There is training material on Powerpoint from nvaccess but it does not cover the above points.

Both NVDA and JAWS should recognize when the object is a shape with text in that shape, and when it is a picture…

And sometimes when I am moving with down arrow between slides in edit mode JAWS announces with each slide  the slide number and then the words know selection.

Come to think of it there are more issues regarding PowerPoint and I hope that JAWS and NVDA will improve the user experience in Microsoft PowerPoint.

As do I, but generally with the built-in keyboard.

Again, no one of us can speak to every single configuration that the user community has in use.  I'm specifically referring to instances where the laptop in particular is being used and with its native keyboard, as the use of the thumb (or finger of an individual's choosing) to activate a real left or right click button is easier than the keyboard shortcut combinations.

Were I doing what you do, with an external keyboard, and having no mousepad at your thumb tips for left and right clicking, I'd favor the screen reader emulation, too.  But it's still useful to know how to hobble a mouse or mask a mousepad such that the left/right click buttons can be used in the event that emulation refuses to work for whatever reason.  It's just another arrow in the accessibility quiver.

Well in my case, I use laptops more as portable desktops. Most of the time, I have a large keyboard connected through a KVM, and don't have to move my hands from the keyboard to use the numpad for nav, then reach up and hit the slash to click.
Whereas I might have to reach over, around, beside, etc., to get to the touchpad, and might at that point land on it in such a way as to move the pointer off of what I wanted, since I'm not in the laptop's muscle memory space at that point.

Of course when I'm using the laptop directly, I often have used the touchpad left/right click, especially on numpad-free laptops (although i don't buy those any more).

Yes.

I have had more wonky behavior from screen reader "click emulation" than I care to think about, and across screen readers.  I have never had a left click button, whether on an actual mouse or mouse pad, do anything other than what's expected if the mouse pointer is pointing to the thing being clicked on, whether by "the usual sighted method" or routing the mouse to the screen reader item that has focus.

I have always understood why actual mouse pointer movement by mouse or mousepad are not wanted, but I fail to understand the resistance to using the actual hard buttons for left and right click, particularly on a laptop, when it's a simple matter to preclude mouse pointer movement.  It increases accessibility and minimizes the need to use multi-key shortcuts for very commonly needed actions.  But to each their own.

I’ve seen you discuss using the left click associated with the mouse pad but I want to understand what you are describing.  Are you saying you move the mouse using the NVDA move mouse command, then use the left click associated with the mouse pad rather than the NVDA left click command?  Since the NVDA move mouse command is actually moving what a physical mouse moves, that seems to be what you are saying.

Luke,

First, before I get into how to completely disable the mousepad, including its left and right click buttons, on any laptop let me restate my opinion:  DON'T do it!!  It makes a lot more sense to mask the actual area that moves the mouse with a thin piece of cardboard (e.g., the back of a notepad or single or doubled over index card) so that the mouse pointer cannot be moved but you have access to the actual left and right click buttons, which are far more reliable when those are called for than any screen reader's emulation is.  At least if those are hard buttons, the mousepads that use a thin area at the bottom left and right sides that act like those buttons when touched are problematic.

One should always check the mousepad/touchpad controls in Control Panel.  In the case of the laptop I'm using, an HP 15 series, that item is Synaptics TouchPad, to determine whether your touchpad supports toggling it on/off as part of its own controls.  I cannot possibly say where these would be located across brands.  It requires looking at the settings to find it.  Some do, some don't.  In the case of many Synaptics TouchPads, there is a setting under Tapping Settings entitled, TouchPad Disable Zone Settings which, if turned on via its checkbox, makes a double tap at the top left corner of the TouchPad toggle it on or off.  If that checkbox is checked, a secondary set of radio buttons with the grouping entitled, Top Left Action, becomes accessible, with the two radio button choices then being Switch TouchPad off for one session or Switch TouchPad off.  I have to believe "session" in this context means "until restarted" while the just plain off will stay off, even after reboot, unless one were to intentionally double tap the upper left corner of the TouchPad. 

In addition, if I open Mouse Properties from Control Panel, many laptops have a checkbox available to Disable internal pointing device when external USB pointing device is attached.  I've seen many people use this, with the dongle for a keyboard-mouse combo, to use the external keyboard but also disable the mousepad at the same time whether the wireless mouse is actually powered on or not.  I've also seen people use this and just attach a USB mouse, then placed "out of the way" as a way to temporarily disable the TouchPad, but such that a mouse for someone sighted is available or that it can be unplugged to allow an assistant access to the mousepad.

Now, after all of the above, you can use Device Manager to disable a mousepad/touchpad, and it will remain off between boots on most systems until you use Device Manager to enable it again:

1. Open Device Manager
2. Expand the Mice and other pointing devices entry.  Under which you should find your touchpad.  In my case, that is Synaptics SMBus TouchPad.
3. Select your TouchPad device.
4. Bring up the context menu and see if you have a Disable option.  Mine does not, because it can be disabled by its own control software.  I have seen some that are able to be disabled.  If you've got a disable option, activate it.  It should now stay disabled until and unless you were to repeat this process and choose Enable from the same context menu.

I personally prefer either masking the touchpad or using the option to disable it when an external pointing device is connected.  It's way easier to reverse.

By the way, if you're worried about the external mouse possibly being bumped or moved, it's a simple matter to make what I call "a hobbled mouse"  or "a treated mouse" where you tape over the laser port on the bottom which is what detects movement over a surface.  When that's taped over, the mouse will not recognize that it's being moved, but the left and right click buttons (and scroll wheel, if it has one) remain available for use.

Brian, my first thought was about mouse tracking also. Afaik most major laptop brands don't allow turning off the touchpad easily without installing some sort of third party utility, unless you know something about it I don't?

I can do it on my MSI gaming laptop with FN+F3, but none of my HP laptops support it that I've ever been able to find. Same for lower end Dells, I believe.

Re: NVDA add on question

Jonathan COHN
 

A NVDA addon can be created for any program. There might be a slight issue if two different applications have the same binary name, since I believe the binary name is what NVDA keys off of for determining what add ons are enabled.
But I expect that what you are really interested in is can I make a specific program easier to use with an add-on. 
So, if there are parts of the application that the review cursor and/or the object review mode can find that you can’t get access to via the regular navigation, then there is a good chance that an add-onn could have a keyboard sequence or active monitor of that region. 
Another possibility is that a program provides a way for other programs to communicate with it but does not provide ways for the object review , review or regular navigation to work. Older Skype was like this and a Blind programmer was able to write a set of python commands to start and stop conversations. 

Hopefully this will get you some ideas, writing add-ons is not magic though and for programs that don’t want other programs messing with them like virus protection applications there is often little a person can do to use them.

I’m really sorry. I just read your reply and checked again.

 

What I didn’t notice during my quick look yesterday is that my Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 64 was immediately crashing when I opened the PDF I’d just created and I was being placed back in the Word document. Therefore, I was hearing the table title and long description, but I was back in Word. Please excuse me.

 

I haven’t been able to review the issue today because I can’t get my Acrobat Reader DC 64 to run while NVDA or Narrator is running. I’ve tried on two machines.

 

Interested to know if anyone else has any feedback or suggestions. However, if you have the accessibility tags checked, I’ll bet it’s an export limitation.

 

As an effective work-around, you could place the table title above the table using the appropriate heading level. This will enable easy navigation and a clear indication of the information that follows. If a long description is require to ensure the user will understand the table, place this in-between the heading and the table. That way, you can be sure it will be easily accessible for everyone.

Hi Sandra

 

I just tested this and the alt text title and long description for the table are present in the PDF.

 

In the export options, ensure “Document structure tags for accessibility” is checked. Note that I am using Microsoft 365, so the tags added to the PDF may have been enhanced since 2016.

 

Regarding the long description, if this information is essential for the user to understand the table’s contents, I recommend including it in the main body of the document, above the table. Many screen reader users will not know how to access the long description, so this approach ensures the information is easy to find.

When I read the table in Word, NVDA will read the alternative text as well as the description. When I export the document to PDF, NVDA will neither read the alternative text nor the description.

It would work in any browse mode, not only in browser. In particular, it should work in MS Word. Not sure about Excel though, I am not familiar with how NVDA interacts with it. You also mentioned email messages - it should work in both Outlook and Thunderbird - and any other email client as long as they present email in HTML format.

This would be perfect, except that I would need it on a normal application, rather than on the browser.

 

Thanks though, it is good to know of this add-on.

 

Best,

 

Fernando

Not quite what you're looking for, but in my BrowserNav add-on, I have a keystroke "Jump to next format change" assigned to tilde key by default (`). You can use it to find the next word written in a different color, but then you'd have to still manually check the color for example with NVDA+F keystroke.

Dear all,

 

Does NVDA offer a way to read only the text which is shown in red, or only the text which is shown in a color other than the predominant color in a given e-mail message or Word/Excel document?

 

I sometimes get e-mail messages where someone has made comments in a color which is different from that of the text being commented. I am hoping there is a quick way to tell NVDA to just read that portion of the document.

 

Thanks,

 

Fernando

I guess ask. What did you have in mind. Maybe someone might be able to help you. Thre is also an add ons list I believe you can ask on, as you might be able to get more help there. Look at nvda’s sub groups for more.

Hi all,

How do I know if an add on or script can be made for NVDA to work with a specific program?
