Looking for an accessible CD or DVD database

ely.r@...
 

Evening All,
I have collections of both CDs and DVDs that need a database for management.
I could create one in Excel but before doing that, I thought someone on the
list might know of a product or a template for Excel that would work well
with NVDA..

Thanks much for any suggestions,
Rick

Re: Issues with dropbox.

Angelo Sonnesso
 

If you press the application  key, or shift F10 you can select share from the menu.

Press enter on share, then press the tab key once, then press alt+down arrow, and you will hear, deselect me.

Press enter and you are done.

I just tried it.

You don't have to remove yourself that way.  I don't recall the exact procedure and I'd have to experiment to figure it out again.

 

Try the following and see what happens. 

Move to the folder in the desktop application.

Open the context menu.

Find share and press enter.

Then, wait a moment and press enter again.

/Wait for a few seconds.  Then press enter again if nothing happens.

If still nothing happens, wait a few seconds and then press enter again.

 

Let us know if you are removed while repeating this procedure.

If I need to, I can experiment again.

 

After you are successful or not successful, see if you can close the program with alt f4.  If you can't, alt tab around until you are in the Dropbox main window.  You should be able to close the program there.

Subject: [nvda] Issues with dropbox.

 

Well just one issue really, so far.


I have a shared folder foo that's not mine, I'm just a member. I want to
remove myself from it to free up space. The web tells me to sign into
dropbox.com, click files, and click "share" next to the folder name,
then there's a dropdown where I can remove myself. I sign into
dropbox.com, I click files.


I see the folder, but all I see after it is a star button and a "more
actions" menu. If I pick "more actions" share does show up there, but if
I click on share, I just get a page with the contents of the folder in
question. I don't see anything with my name or a way to stop being part
of the share. So how do I stop being part of the share? This is on
Windows 1809 64-bit, latest Dropbox, I just installed it like 20 minutes
ago, NVDA 2018.4, latest Firefox.

Re: NVDA and Battleship and Memory games

Hi Pascal,

you might like to check out the RS Games website because they have quite a few games designed for the blind, including Battleship. This is their website https://rsgames.org/

I haven't actually played the Battleship game but sometimes play Yahtzee, Uno, Zombie Dice and Farkl ... you can play against other human players or against computer bots.

You could use the game Go Fish as a memory boost ... playing against three or four other players (human or computer) and trying to remember which player has wich cards is very tricky!

Press NVDA+8 to turn focus sending to browsers on and off.
It's not a production-ready add-on, as it introduces a lot of side
effects when not sending focus events. However, it'll give you an idea
how much faster and more responsive your browsing experience  might
become without these focus events being sent back and forth.

And to confuse unknowledgeable and learning users more, it automatically

I must also add that edit boxes sporadically entering forms mode is a
very big problem for me. At work I have to use a website that contains
an edit box that somehow always enters forms mode and once this
happens, the web site opens a popup dialog somewhere in the end of the
page and brings the focus there. So there is no easy way to go past
that edit box and the entire website becomes unusable. I know, this is
probably not a very screenreader-friendly website, but Jaws manages to
work fine with it somehow. I would say that this problem is one of the
major disadvantages of NVDA compared to Jaws.

Hi Felix,
I experience all the same problems as you described: rubber band
browse mode cursor jumping back on large webpages, and also edit boxes
automatically entering forms mode even though I didn't ask them to.
It's good to know that this is a known issue, but this indeed seems
like a complicated issue to fix.
1. It seems to me that adding a switch like "browse mode cursor moves
system focus" would be a very useful fix in the short term. We already
have a "caret moves review cursor" switch bound to NVDA+6 - so it
seems to be just a question of adding another switch like this. I have
to say that most of the web sites work fine for me with current NVDA
behavior, and for those websites that don't work very well, this new
switch might come very handy.
2. Do you know how Jaws works around this problem? Do they not update
system focus at all when in browse mode? Or they only update it when
they realise that some other gesture might require updated focus?

Best
Tony

Hello Gene,
exactly, that's what I am referring to: A way to move the browse mode
cursor through a page without triggering events in the browser. It
would feel lightning-fast, as it would only involve changing a
position in an internal textual representation fully managed by NVDA
in its own process space. When hitting enter or the space bar to
interact with something, focus could then be brought to that object.
The analogy in the sighted world is that of a touch screen: Just
looking at the contents does not generate events, and is therefore not
slowed down by anything the browser needs to handle.
I am calling those events focus changes because technically that's
what they are. Focus, in this context, is the Windows concept defined
as a control's responsibility for handling keyboard input. It's hard
to describe without leaving a lot of dangling terms as it's a very
technical notion in Windows programming.
Best,
Felix

Hello list,
I'd like to ask how to keep focus from following the browse mode
cursor. While this behavior may often be desirable, there are many
instances in which it unnecessarily slows down the browsing
experience
as NVDA needs to constantly keep track of focus events, deciding
whether or not they are related to browse mode cursor movements.
With
unfortunate timing, NVDA sometimes fails to associate a browse
mode
cursor action with its corresponding focus event and bounces back
a
few lines or switches to forms mode because it thinks focus has
changed asynchronously on behalf of the website rather than the
user.
The sighted world analogy of moving the browse mode cursor is
simply
reading, which should not be associated with so many events in the
browser.
If anyone would like to try out how the other behavior, as also
seen
in JAWS, would feel in terms of speed: Go to a complex website and
then navigate in browse mode, but not using the standard arrow
keys
but instead the review cursor (numpad 7 and numpad 9).
All the best,
Felix

Windows Defender isn't a cloud program but it does have, the last I checked, reasonable though not really good ratings.  Considering the inaccessibility of a lot of antimalware programs and the reasonable, though not great ratings, that it is free, and that it is not a drag on system performance, it is an alternative worth considering.  Many people run it in conjunction with Malware Bytes.

Well technically with things like cloud protection, if someone gets
infected with it first, as well as using its own datasets, it can draw
from others that have had the same malware to update its databases etc.

Which antivirus or antimalware programs do you use? For a second opinion I'd recommend installing the free version of MalwareBytes to see if it detects anything.
