WinTenApps 18.09.1 released #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials 18.09.1 is now available. This release fixes an issue seen in recent modern Calculator updates where NVDA played error tone or appeared to do nothing when announcing unit conversion results and other calculations. As always, the new release is just an update check away… or almost.

 

You’ll find out why I was a bit hesitant above very soon.

Cheers,

Joseph

You know… Someone was able to crack this nut once and while it’s a bummer that Webvisum was dumped, it apparently wasn’t impossible to put together the necessary tools to develop it. 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.

It doesn't work on free books as you cannot gift a free book. If the book is $0.00, there is no "buy for others" option. Otherwise, that's a decent workaround.

Re: itunes latest issue

Mary Otten
 

I’m not so interested in being fair to Apple in this instance. Microsoft has made the office suite reasonably accessible on the Mac and even on I devices. Apple hasn’t done that well with iTunes or iCloud for that matter. As somebody who owned a Mac for years, hoping that Apple would catch up with Accessibility there and eventually I went back to windows, I’m disgusted. Far more people in this world use windows then use a Mac. I love the eye devices. Apple needs to step up his game on windows. It’s that simple.

itunes issue solved in a round about way

 

Hi all.

Well I have sort of solved my issue of itunes 12.9.

I first uninstalled itunes then tried the app from the app store.

The app does the same thing, it appears that apple desktop itunes and apple itunes app are the same.

The issue then is this, it appears that the main window of itune is not visible to nvda, it may never have been that way, it was when true desktop interfaces were used, why its not visible is unknown, maybe someone can look at that.

At any rate, when I loaded it in nvda and did an nvda b I got just window suggesting there was in deed a window, shift tab got unknown and blank so the way the main window is being presented is well just not happening, I was able to get a partial read with narator, and I may have to resort to using that for now.

It does make sence for apple to merge the 2 apps but it is a bit of a problem now.

I said what I know, based on years of seeing people ask for invitations on lists and successfully signing up.  I don't recall when I last saw such a conversation but I think it was somewhere between a year or two ago.  Sorry I had the unmitigated Gaul to disagree with your inerrancy.
 
If others agree with you, fine.  I'll take that into account and if there is good reason to do so, a number of people agreeing and no one disagreeing, or those who disagree seem to present weak reasons compared with those who agree, I shall consider that I may be wrong.  But I'm not just going to crumble into a quivering mass of doubt and concession just because you make a statement.
I'm perfectly willing to admit that I'm wrong when presented with good evidence.  Please present such evidence if there is a disagreement and I hope others present their evidence or experiences as well.

For those interested, The way I do it now on Amazon for Kindle books is through object navigation.

From the top of the page, use the h key to get to the first heading, an unnumbered level heading called "buying options."

Using Desktop layout as that's what I know. All commands using the num pad.

Use the nvda+2 combination to enter the buying options dialogue.

nvda+6 and nvda+4, to move back and forward through the dialogue.

Here you'll hear the regular price of the book, digital price if different, kindle price if lower or free, if it's available through kindle unlimited, and finally a buy now button.

NVDA+enter, to activate your selection.

Again, desktop layout, all choices in this case using the num pad

We don't know that it isn't adware.  The nature of the popups wasn't described.  Furthermore, I don't know how many people get them.  I don't get them when using Chrome.

No, it's not addware.  There is a setting in chrome that allows those popups about tech news, and my son knows which one it is, but I personally haven't been able to find it in my copy of chrome, so I need to ask him again which setting it is to turn it off.  The news titles pop up in the system notifications area on the pc.  The setting in chrome turns those pop ups off, so they won't do that anymore.  I've looked through my settings, and couldn't find which setting was causing it, but I'll ask him again and repost here after I get it turned off. 

Those don't bother me as much as the flippin' login to my apple drive that keeps popping up every half hour or so, which seems also to be triggered by my first opening of chrome after a reboot.  I'd really like to turn those off.  I'll log in to the silly thing when I want to use it, not until then, so stop asking me already.

With regards to Chrome,

Has anyone else had ads popping up when Chrome is open?

After I close Chrome, I have to bring up the task manager and close several more instances of it to keep the pop-up ads from happening.

Chrome loads itself with multiple instances for more stability, each instance for a different process.

But I have gone through settings and seemingly turned off anything related to pop-ups and notifications, and it still happens.

Thanks.

Given the increasing popularity of Chrome among blind users, this article from Kim Komando is important.  The Chrome designers are implementing a change which is very bad for security, dumbing down the product for asthetics.  Let's hope the protests from security experts and others cause them to remember that they are not supposed to do harm, as part of their founding principles.

It doesn't imply that the person hasn't used it in the past.  Someone may ask because they want to resume using it after not having done so for awhile.  Also, I expect that you can set up an account.  People were doing so for years, long after Webvisum was monitored by the developers.  What people need to do is ask already existing members for an invitation.  I've seen many such requests on different lists.  Because Webbvism isn't monitored by the developers any longer, you can't get an invitation from the developers as you could years ago.  But I see no reason that you still can't from already existing members.

I guess I need to qualify "doesn't work" with "presuming you do not already have a Webvisum account."

Those who established one ages ago report being able to use the latest signed version of the add-on up through Firefox 52.  

When I hear, "Does Webvisum work?," it has the implied proviso, "if I want to start using it now," and in that case the answer is no.  I haven't known of anyone being able to get an invitation generated for ages.  And it definitely is abandonware at this juncture.  I fully expect that one day, when it's least expected, it will finally break for existing users.

But those for whom it's still working should ride that proverbial horse until it drops from under them.

Rumola still seems to work under Chrome.

And, yes, you need to tab to the button first.  (again, no idea why), but that's the only way I've found to get around the issue.  I've also reported it to amazon, as have others, but feel free to add your voice to the outcries, perhaps it will cause them to fix it sooner.

Hi,
Has anyone noticed an issue with purchasing content from the Kindle store on Amazon?
I've tried two different web browsers and can't see the buy botton on the Kindle store.

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.

Regards

Quentin.

Try disabling or removing the emoticon add-on see if that helps any, as nvda now supports emoticons itself

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: A security change in Chrome you would be wise to correct

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

No, it's not addware.  There is a setting in chrome that allows those popups about tech news, and my son knows which one it is, but I personally haven't been able to find it in my copy of chrome, so I need to ask him again which setting it is to turn it off.  The news titles pop up in the system notifications area on the pc.  The setting in chrome turns those pop ups off, so they won't do that anymore.  I've looked through my settings, and couldn't find which setting was causing it, but I'll ask him again and repost here after I get it turned off. 

Those don't bother me as much as the flippin' login to my apple drive that keeps popping up every half hour or so, which seems also to be triggered by my first opening of chrome after a reboot.  I'd really like to turn those off.  I'll log in to the silly thing when I want to use it, not until then, so stop asking me already.

Adware.  What antimalware programs do you run?

With regards to Chrome,

Has anyone else had ads popping up when Chrome is open?

After I close Chrome, I have to bring up the task manager and close several more instances of it to keep the pop-up ads from happening.

Chrome loads itself with multiple instances for more stability, each instance for a different process.

But I have gone through settings and seemingly turned off anything related to pop-ups and notifications, and it still happens.

Thanks.

Glenn

Given the increasing popularity of Chrome among blind users, this article from Kim Komando is important.  The Chrome designers are implementing a change which is very bad for security, dumbing down the product for asthetics.  Let's hope the protests from security experts and others cause them to remember that they are not supposed to do harm, as part of their founding principles.
