locked nvda accessibility testing of one message checkout

fabio@...
 

Good morning.

We have an idea for a one message checkout and wanted to validate the concept with a few volunteers who are visually impaired.  Our tech allows users to complete an online purchase by sending us the url of the product with a sms or voice message.  If you're interested in volunteering for this tech testing, please send me an email:  support@...

thank you


Gmail Filter Setup - Specifically, for the NVDA Group Messages

Daniel McGee <danielmcgee134@...>
 

Hello everyone, using gmail as my email provider. I'm having a really hard time trying to create a message rule / filter that'll apply the rule to go into my NVDA folder / label with NVDA.

I'm fairly certain that I have it all setup correctly but my incoming messages are: still showing up in the inbox. Even though I have told the rule to: skip the inbox and just go into the NVDA folder.

If I have missed any Criteria in getting the rule to work, then please, do let me know. As I'm starting to feel like its gmail and not human error on my part. Thank you

Daniel


Re: How has NVDA benefitted you during the pandemic

Ibrahim Abedrabbo
 

NVDA is the only screen reader I have on my laptop. In fact, I have not used any other screen reader since 2012. Pandemic or not, without NVDA I have no access to my computer. I appreciate the work of the NVDA developers and their philosophy of making screen access available to all blind and visually impaired people worldwide. For this reason, I made it a habit for the last several years to give a donation to NVDA each December as a humble contribution to its continued development.

Regards,

 

Ibrahim

Foobar all the way for me. I don't care for vlc although I have and use it for some things, but it's 99 percent foobar. It's scriptable, can do a lot with and without foobar add ons, and the keys can if needed be made global.

Re: Slack for Windows Accessibility

Edited

Hi,
The Slack Windows client is fairly usable with lots of hot keys for faster navigation. Those that I use the most are ctrl+k and ctrl+j. It is annoying at moments and never pleasant, but covers my needs and most likely yours.

NVDA allows me to interact with computers, write emails, read books and program.
During the popularity of Covid-19, it saved me more time.

Re: Mostly used media player with NVDA

Greetings. For me -- and many others, it is Foobar2000 all the way. I switched from Winamp which is no longer being developed other than the leaked releases which circulate around to Foobar2000 which is equally low-resource and quite well-maintained. Everything is customizable in Foobar2000 and that might also be its foible as you need to define your hot keys first. But once you do it, you can't be happier. Foobar2000 support is also mentioned in NVDA's manual.

Best,
Amir

I know Winamp is widely used and is accessible. Other players are as well, but I'll let those who use them discuss them. I usually use Winamp. I'll tell you why I use Winamp in general and other list members may describe which players they like.

When using NVDA, you don't have the time marker feature JAWS incorporated for use with Winamp. But there is a utility made by the late Carlos, who is much missed, that will allow you to set time markers with any screen-reader or even without one. It is completely independent of and doesn't require a screen-reader be used.

Then, there is a plugin I use for slowing down or speeding up the speed of material. It doesn't keep the pitch constant, it slows down and speeds up speed as though you were using a variable speed control on a tape recorder or record player. That plugin is very useful to me. I digitized a lot of tapes and my tape recorder was running a little fast. I slow down the speed of the files when I play them in Winamp. They must be certain formats or the plugin doesn't work properly. I know MP3 will work, There may be others but I don't know what works and what doesn't.

Re: Backin Up Speech Dictionaries

Dear all,

Done! It was in my Users>{user name}>Appdata>Roaming folder, and I
manually opened the file within the Speechdicts folder that said
Default with Notepad++ to ensure that it contained the speech
dictionary strings and replacements. Copied the Speechdicts folder
over to my backup location.

Thanks.

Hello Marco,
I usually use Media Player Classic Home Cinema  (MPCHC).
A fairly user-friendly player and well accessible for using with NVDA.
Good luck to you!


NVDA addon for AOMEI Backupper

Akash Kakkar
 

Hey all,

Is anyone please willing to develop an addon for AOMEI Backupper? The thing is that this software is quite versatile and quite effective but accessibilitywise, it's a big step back.

Will be very helpful if someone does/takes in this.

You're most welcome, Akash. Given your coding prowess, I'd appreciate it if you could take a look at the lack of displayed text issue for its subscribed feeds at the bottom of the page which appear in the form of buttons.

Best,

Re: Backin Up Speech Dictionaries

Gene
 

Someone may be able to tell you a string to place in the run dialog so you won't have to find the folder in this way:
Search your hard drive for a folder named speechdicts.
Copy it to the clipboard and paste it where you want to back it up. The speech dictionary files are in that folder.

If you want to get the path so you can just put in the run dialog, do the following, once you are on the speech dicts folder.
Open the context menu, then find and open properties. The path is given there and you can use the NVDA f9 and f10 method for copying the path to the clipboard.

I think the NVDA speech dictionaries should have an export button in the dialog of the dictionaries. It would export all of the dictionaries regardless of which dialog you use the button in.

Dear all,

As the subject line implies, I would like to create a backup of my

can be done.
