Re: ePUB reading support in Edge: Fwd: Re: Edge evaluated using Spanish interface

Christo de Klerk
 

Edge reads the text of a specific item in the table of contents. It seems that the item you were reading was a short one. Press Alt+t for the table of contents and select the next item. I have not found Edge to stop reading at the end of the page, unless it is also the end of a chapter or section. In the table of contents you will also see percentages for each item which will be a good indication of how long a section is.

Hello

I started reading an ePub book in the Edge browser and found that it works really well. In fact, I find Edge to be more convenient than Virtual Bookshelf. Today I also tried an ePub book with an audio overlay and it works like a charm. This is really nice.

Dear list and reviewers:

I've evaluated Edge using Spanish interface, since my Windows is set to this language.
Hope keystrokes are right: control+g to use the page feature, f7 for caret browsing and f6 to switch between book contents and reading system features. Please, feel free to change them if they are wrong.

Thanks

Re: I've had it with Firefox

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Christopher,


If you want to find the personal e-mail of a sender when you are using Thunderbird for e-mail, do the following.


1.  Open the message.

2.  Press shift + Tab until you hear the name of the desired sender.

3.  Press the context key (the key 2 positions to the left of the right control key.

4.  You are given a menu of items including copy e-mail address; add to address book, and send e-mail to.

5.  Make your choice and you should be good to go.

Seeing I was mainly discussing JAWS, not NVDA, I boobooed. I didn't read the e-mail headers correctly, and thought this was on a totally different list which sometimes discussez JFW. I consider my message further to be off topic for this list.


I'd like however to try your suggestion, and if it doesn't work, e-mail you privately so we can keep trouble shooting... that is... of course, if you're OK with that.


Alas, thank you for your help.

Also, your problem may be that JAWS isn't lining up what is in the buffer with the actual control you want to work with.  Try the following:
Press the left mouse button instead of enter.  Don't route anything or change to any other cursor than the virtual PC cursor.  Just press the left mouse button instead of enter.
 
I have one or two other suggestions that might help but if this one solves the problem, trying the others won't be necessary.

Subject: Re: [nvda] I've had it with Firefox

I'm coming in on this thread extremely extremely late, so forgive me if
this's been already mentioned. I have managed to get so much mail in my
inbox these last few days of abscence, that I can't possibly go through
everything quickly.

One thing with JAWS 2018 and the latest build of Firefox 61 that I'm
seeing is an issue where you'll be on something which is clickable like
a link, or a dropdown, or something of sort. You either hit enter, or
space bar, and the stupid dad blamed thing either won't do anything at
all, or more 9 times out of 10, it will jump me focused on to my
taskbar. In fact, one time, I hit enter on a link, not even a mailto:
link, and the stupid thing opened my Windows 10 Mail app.

Excuse my language, but, what the hell!

Absolutely this didn't used to happen, and honestly, I can't remember
when it started. Ever since Firefox decided to go Quantom, things have
just totally totally gone down hill with it. I get that VFO is doing
their best with what they have to fix things, which I appreciate. In
their defense, I get totally that they're trying, but I wonder how much
of this is really VFO breaking things, vs. how much is Mozilla breaking
things. I'm inclined to think more the ladder.

I'm admittedly not the biggest fan of Chrome on the Windows platform,
maybe on Android, and on the mac, but not Windows. I'm not totally sure
why, but yeah... It's not something I can put my finger on. I just don't
care for it.

Anyway, I'd be curious if any of you all have seen this behavior as
well. I'm told that supposedly, I'm not the only one experiencing this.

Chris.

Re: Speech Stopping

Abbie, for my next assignment in 2 weeks w/Joseph's tech support
session, I'm supposed to get log files of users who are having
difficulty & see if I can decipher them & figure out the problem. So,
when that happens, can you press NVDA+f1, ctrl+a to select all
characters, ctrl+c to copy, & then send it me. Or it's in
c:\users\username\AppData\local\temp\nvda.log, which u can just
attach. If you have to restart NVDA, then it's in
c:\users\username\appdata\local\temp\nvda-old.log.

Thanks for help w/my homework! Lol. Meanwhile, let's see if that might
actually help troubleshoot your issues, & maybe Mark's as well.

As of release 18 I have been having issues pushing NVDA output to my Bluetooth headphones on my Windows 10 laptop. All audio output from the laptop is successfully sent to the headset (including JAWS output) except for NVDA which plays from the laptop speakers. Interestingly enough, when I toggle the earphones off the audio stops playing on the desktop.
Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?

I believe someone posted this on this list some time back and I saved it. Never tried it, but I'd make sure someone with sight was around the first time I try it.
Hi all,
You can reboot in to safe mode by doing the following:
press windows plus r and type
msconfig and hit inter
press ctrl plus tab to get to the "boot tab"
tab to "safe boot" and check the check mark
tab to "base video" and check it as well.
tab to the OK button and press it, you'd get a prompt to restart
computer to apply changes,
if you select "restart now" your PC should restart into safe mode.
after finishing your PC job with safe mode, do the same steps above
but this time uncheck the two check marks above for both safeboot, and
base video. and press OK and restart,
your PC will restart to the normal mode.
I hope it helps.

future NVDA will have this setting as well. thank you.

You might try tweaking symbol pronunciation for the symbol "null". That's the only thing I can find where "blank" is what's said. That poses dangers if you actually need to edit a document and care about paragraph breaks.

The main reason for putting a blank line in is for a paragraph break. I know of one regular on one of these groups who has the idiosyncratic formatting habit of making each and individual sentence set apart from the next by a blank line, but it's certainly not standard practice.

It appears as though Windows has provided a new better way to search for a desired message. It has added a constellation of options to the search field. It is possible to tab through these, but I have not succeeded in figuring out a keyboard path to the sorted mailbox list. Using Magnifier, I can click on it, but has anyone figured out the keyboard steps to getting there?

I have searched for a way to revert to the earlier and much simpler search tool, but with no luck.

This is not an NVDA issue, as the problem is true for other screen  readers. Another example of “if it ain’t broke, don’t’ fix it.”

Do you know if NVDA is aware or if a bug report has been issued? Also, did your issue start in v2018 also?

Subject: [nvda] NVDA 18.2.1 and bluetooth audio issue

 

As of release 18 I have been having issues pushing NVDA output to my Bluetooth headphones on my Windows 10 laptop. All audio output from the laptop is successfully sent to the headset (including JAWS output) except for NVDA which plays from the laptop speakers. Interestingly enough, when I toggle the earphones off the audio stops playing on the desktop.

Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?

Re: I've had it with Firefox

One thing i have noticed is when a developer uses off screen text with a background image associated link infirefox then NVDA usually cannot click it.

one thing that I did not like about water fox and I don't know if it is water fox or my machine or something that I am doing wrong but I would select a folder to put my book marks in and it would revert to the default is

it does not save my choice eg

lets say I want to put something in the book marks called other book marks

I would go to add the site to favorites I would then tab and select other book marks and then add the site to the folder
when I wold go do do the next site it would revert to what ever the default book mark folder that it uses
so I am unable to tell it to put book makrs in to a spasific folder where firefox if I tell it to use other book marks for my favorites then it would all ways put the sites in to that folder until I go and change it where water fox refuses to save the settings

I'm not sure and since the thread now includes NVDA, I answered in another message concerning NVDA as well.  If the suggestions I made don't work, I'm not sure if I have other suggestions but since the topic has been broadened, my next answer is now on topic.

Gene, how in Thunderbird would I extract your personal e-mail address from your post to the list?


Seeing I was mainly discussing JAWS, not NVDA, I boobooed. I didn't read the e-mail headers correctly, and thought this was on a totally different list which sometimes discussez JFW. I consider my message further to be off topic for this list.


I'd like however to try your suggestion, and if it doesn't work, e-mail you privately so we can keep trouble shooting... that is... of course, if you're OK with that.


Alas, thank you for your help.


Chris.

With JAWS and not with NVDA?  Maybe you should use NVDA with Firefox for a time and JAWS with it only if necessary for some reason. 
 
Also, your problem may be that JAWS isn't lining up what is in the buffer with the actual control you want to work with.  Try the following:
Press the left mouse button instead of enter.  Don't route anything or change to any other cursor than the virtual PC cursor.  Just press the left mouse button instead of enter.
 
I have one or two other suggestions that might help but if this one solves the problem, trying the others won't be necessary.

I'm coming in on this thread extremely extremely late, so forgive me if
this's been already mentioned. I have managed to get so much mail in my
inbox these last few days of abscence, that I can't possibly go through
everything quickly.

One thing with JAWS 2018 and the latest build of Firefox 61 that I'm
seeing is an issue where you'll be on something which is clickable like
a link, or a dropdown, or something of sort. You either hit enter, or
space bar, and the stupid dad blamed thing either won't do anything at
all, or more 9 times out of 10, it will jump me focused on to my
taskbar. In fact, one time, I hit enter on a link, not even a mailto:
link, and the stupid thing opened my Windows 10 Mail app.

Excuse my language, but, what the hell!

Absolutely this didn't used to happen, and honestly, I can't remember
when it started. Ever since Firefox decided to go Quantom, things have
just totally totally gone down hill with it. I get that VFO is doing
their best with what they have to fix things, which I appreciate. In
their defense, I get totally that they're trying, but I wonder how much
of this is really VFO breaking things, vs. how much is Mozilla breaking
things. I'm inclined to think more the ladder.

I'm admittedly not the biggest fan of Chrome on the Windows platform,
maybe on Android, and on the mac, but not Windows. I'm not totally sure
why, but yeah... It's not something I can put my finger on. I just don't
care for it.

Anyway, I'd be curious if any of you all have seen this behavior as
well. I'm told that supposedly, I'm not the only one experiencing this.

Chris.

Hi,

 

Is there any way to have NVDA read Google Books?
