NVDA and Facebook on the web

Cristina Ebetiuc
 

Hi!

I have googled and tried out shortcuts for Facebook on the web but they don’t work. How can I make tehm work? Has NVDA a Problem with Facebook?

I use Google Chrome and the latest NVDA Version.

Thanks

Hi.

This would be a different issue, unless it's not speaking what's in browse mode or on your taskbar. If NVDA starts and says "unknown", it's probably due to your display driver.

Hi Luke and other,

I have a same problem, Nvda says Unknown after starting Windows.

I tried use the fixing tool com, but Nvda says the same.

I would like to know, where is a problem.

I have installed Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.

Question about IF Interpreter NVDA add-on

 

Hi.

To the user with issue with frotz.

Frotz is one of the only ones that you can't open directly the game files.

tads, glulxe etc you can just hit enter with the extention of the file you want.

Frotz you need to open frotz, then open the dat or z file you want to open.

If you open the z file the addon will not run, its never been explained.

I do the same with agility though you can open agx files ok with the addon and it works.

Nick did give me an addon to 2020.

Just checked his github and its there.

so you have 2 options

1.  go to

https://github.com/nstockton/nvda-add-ons/archive/master.zip

2.  extract that to a folder of your choice.

go to that folder and enter the nvda addons master folder

go to applications

go to if interpreters.

highlight all the files with control a.

right click the files.

Using 7zip or something, 7zip can be gotten from.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/sevenzip/files/7-Zip/19.00/7z1900-x64.msi/download

or

https://sourceforge.net/projects/sevenzip/files/7-Zip/19.00/7z1900.msi/download

You can then tell the program to create a zip not 7zip, but zip file.

Name the .zip extention to nvda-addon.

highlight the zip file.

hit f2.

hit end.

hit back space 3 times.

type nvda-addon in the place of .zip.

hit enter.

You should be able to install the package.

Alternitively you can just download the file.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/df01nlqir8g3ln3/IfInterpreters.nvda-addon?dl=1

I'll leave this up for a bit.

For anyone else wanting nicks stuff it appears that most of the stuff he
has is uncompiled like this.

Re: unknown

In NVDA's tools menu is an option called "COM Registration Fixing Tool" which is designed to fix this kind of problem:

1. Press NVDA+N to open the NVDA menu
2. Press T for tools
3. Down arrow to "COM Registration Fixing Tool"
4. Press ENTER, and follow the prompts.
Once done, restart the computer to be sure, and hopefully everything should work again.

Jaffar,

          In the future, and this goes out to anyone who wants to post this sort of thing, please seek approval from the group owner by e-mailing nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io before doing so.  In most cases you'll likely get it, but it's a basic courtesy to seek that permission first for completely off-topic messages that might still be of great interest to the community because of their connection to accessibility.

Re: Question about IF Interpreter NVDA add-on

I’ve used Winfrotz before with jFW at least…it’s been a while. I also ran something called filfre, which I think I still have.

Could you not use the review cursor to read content displayed after issuing commands?

Having a braille display when playing these types of games is very nice actually. Well, it is in general, I find, but I realise this is far outside many peoples’ reach.

Re: NVDA WHATSAPP ADD-ON

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


I have not heard of a add on for whats app for nvda.


A while ago but never posted but updated is a tutorial I did for whats app for web and I also downloaded the app version to see the difference.


Pretty much the same.


the tutorial will be added below.


I just can not remember if the golden cursor add on would let you lable those buttons I think it was only hot spots then you had to use the elements list to get to them if you did not shift/tab etc to get to them.


The updated part for the tutorial was saying what the buttons were on the main part of the app etc.


It is a draft.


Hope it helps.


*Using WhatsApp with nvda

*WhatsApp  for web
There is a app version which you can install on to your computer. The app version is the same as the web version in looks. Both the web version and app version can not do audio or video at present.
so you can only send and recieve messages on the computer.
You will need to go to the following web address at https://web.whatsapp.com/   
Before you can use the web version you must have it setup on your mobile phone and already have a account setup. After you have signed into the app on your phone you will need to go to more options...settings....whats app web and double tap. This will also need to be done on the computer you are using.then you will have to scan in a Qr code. If the code needs to be refreshed while on the graphic use the NVDA key + enter key to do this. from the monitor for it to sign you in.
The computer must be on the same web address as above.

when you go to scan in the QR code The QR code is on the top right corner of the screen.

This can be a little tricky to do but after it scans the code what shows on your phone will show on your computer monitor.
You will neeed to do this from your phone to scan in the 'QR code.
The phone might vibrate when it has scanned in the code then mirror your phone.

Hi List

 

It seems as if more listers than only I are interested in an add-on for better functionality. If one does not exist, can one of the brilliant developers of NVDA PLEASE develop one.

Keep safe and stay healthy

Re: NVDA works slowly in excel 2016

Martin O'Sullivan
 

Well did that and it has improved the performance  however   The issue of nvda reading behind the selection still persists.

 

But not Shure that this is an excel problem, as it does the same in Gmail, and other applications.

 

so, when you arrow down NVDA reads the line before the line which you are on.


but for anyone looking for how to do it here is a quick guide.

How to Disable Live Preview in Excel

 
The live preview in Excel shows how a feature affects the document as you hover over different choices. For example, when hovering over different types of charts, the selected data will demo different charts. To disable the Live Preview, please following the steps below:

press alt tap f then tap t

Uncheck "Enable Live Preview" in the options dialog box

Martin,



I would also like to hear the answer to this from our resident NVDA
experts.



In my own experience, when I run a macro to process an Excel worksheet,
Excel slows down dramatically after each run of the macro so that I have to
restart the computer to get back to a speedy process. I have read that this
is a memory management problem with Excel which fails to flush out
previously used memory and so runs out of accessible memory slots.



I raise this here, in case you are finding this sluggishness right away when
you start NVDA or after working for a little while? In that case, I would
recommend that you put on the NVDA log for a full working session so that
the team can see just what the computer is doing and whether this is an
Excel issue or due to NVDA programming. I intend producing such a log myself
for both Ms. Word and Ms. Excel which both end up running slowly and
frequently crash!



All the best,

This issue is driving me mad Excel is becoming unusable with NVDA. NVDA
often reads the contents of the previous sells, for example if you arrow

sell you entered.



It is really slow switching between sheets.

Hi list

 

I need some help.

 

I just had WhatsApp installed on my laptop. Is there a NVDA add-on available to make WhatsApp more user friendly?

 

If someone could send me a link to download it, I’d greatly appreciate it.

 

Keep safe and warm regards

Re: NVDA works slowly in excel 2016

Martin,

 

I would also like to hear the answer to this from our resident NVDA experts.

 

In my own experience, when I run a macro to process an Excel worksheet, Excel slows down dramatically after each run of the macro so that I have to restart the computer to get back to a speedy process. I have read that this is a memory management problem with Excel which fails to flush out previously used memory and so runs out of accessible memory slots.

 

I raise this here, in case you are finding this sluggishness right away when you start NVDA or after working for a little while? In that case, I would recommend that you put on the NVDA log for a full working session so that the team can see just what the computer is doing and whether this is an Excel issue or due to NVDA programming. I intend producing such a log myself for both Ms. Word and Ms. Excel which both end up running slowly and frequently crash!

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

This issue is driving me mad  Excel is becoming unusable with NVDA.  NVDA often reads the contents of the previous sells, for example if you arrow between sells NVDA will read the contents of the sell you left and not the sell you entered.

 

It is really slow switching between sheets.

 

What is the fix for this?
