Hi,do the games work with win ten?  I didn’t think that site still exists. The games do exist. But are they updated? Last I seen, they worked for older versions of windows like xp.

On the off chance this might be somehow pertinent, in your message to the group all of the text except for your signature is right justified, which is really odd.  I don't know if the setting that's causing this might be somehow related to the issue that you are having.

Hi diana,

 

  1. Yes its behave like this connected to usb and Bluetooth.
  2.  The symbols are written just fine in other languages.
  3. Hybrid mode is on.
  4. There is not an option for Hebrew code on Hebrew, just computer braille.
  5. Its not a recent problem, its work like this always.

About the panning buttons and the cursor routing keys, I have this problem as well.

Strange.

Ok, your issue poses many question:

 

1. Does the QBraille behave this way connected with both USB and Bluetooth?

2. Does punctuation work in other languages?

3. Do you have Hybrid Mode on?

4. Are you working in the Hebrew braille code or computer braille? 

5.  If Hebrew, have you tried computer braille?

6. Has it always worked this way or only a recent problem?

7. If you are connected through Bluetooth, have you paired both the display and the screen reader separately? If you are using USB, that I know this isn't necessary.  

 

I am having issues with my QBraille too, and JAWS, but it works fine in USB, not in Bluetooth. In Bluetooth, the cursor routing buttons and panning buttons are inoperative. I've been told it's the version of Windows I'm using, but I don't believe this because these issues started long before the current windows version, and apparently, though I haven't tested it yet, it works fine with NVDA. 

 

This is sad, because I love the QBraille but was hoping to be able to connect with Bluetooth.

Hi list,

 

I have QBraille XL from Hims, and so far its cool device!

 

But I have problems with NVDA and other screen readers.

 

When I'm trying to type on the perkins keyboard in Hebrew, its does write the letters and numbers, but its doesn't write the symbols like comma, full stop, question mark and so on.

In the display's notepad for example its working just fine, all the symbols are written correctly.

 

So its not related to the display itself, its related to the screen reader.

 

Any help is appreciated.

Topics on Games - Please take them to the Chat Subgroup #adminnotice

 

Hello All,

             I am requesting that topics related to games be taken to the Chat Subgroup.  The Group Rules state: Before choosing where to post, please ask yourself the question, “Is what I’m about to ask directly related to controlling or using NVDA, or whether a specific program is accessible with NVDA?”  If that can be answered, “Yes,” then post to the NVDA Group, and if the answer is, “No,” then the topic belongs in the NVDA Chat Subgroup.

              That's where topics on games belong, unless you are asking a very specific question on how to access something during play with NVDA or whether a given game is accessible at all with NVDA.  Even then, I'd consider asking this on the Chat Subgroup first, as these discussions tend to focus on the game in question with NVDA as a tangent, at best.

Re: NVDA and Facebook on the web

JM Casey
 

I use it too, but just because it’s less of a headache. I guess that makes it better, for our purposes, but it is not exactly a full facebook experience like the regular site. It is also buggy and very low priority. Even though it is called “facebook mobile”, most mobile users use the app and don’t bother with the web interface, so there’s virtually no impetus to fix things when  they go wrong. There are unexpected glitches and things you’d think would be easy to accomplish that simply can’t be done. And if you are doing something like adding invites friends to a group or event, you have to keep clicking through pagea after page…same with going back through your messages: “See more, see more, see more”…argh gimme a break, so annoying.

But yeah, it is certainly easier to do simple stuff like read your news feed – it is like facebook: the Neutered version and I’m mostly ok  with that, bugs and annoying scrolling notwithstanding.

It is so much easier to use the mobile Facebook website. If you use m. Facebook.com, you can just use the same commands as you would for any web page. You simply have categories like friends, messages, and so on, and you just press enter on those links. I have never been able to use the full Facebook website. Even with the supposed commands, they never work for me. The mobile Facebook website is so much better, because you navigate it just like you would with hattings, links, and so on on any website. The mobile Facebook site is very simplified and easy to use without all of the clutter. Have a great one!

Hi David


You will have to check out the new face book page now but you will need to switch to it from the classic face book.


it is a lot more like the mobiel version and much more like a web page.

Hi

 

the new look face book does not seem to have short cuts spoken out as they are probably not there. I just had a quick look it seems it is in beta.

 

You can change back to the classic face book where they will be spoken etc I just tried it with the new edge.

 

When you go to log out of face book just before you log out it says switch back to classic face book press the enter key on it. It will then ask why close that screen then it will revert back.

 

It seems you may be able to switch between them 2 so if this is the case I will have a sus of the new one  and might right up a tutorial for it.

 

This is with the main face book not the mobile one I was looking at.
