Hi !

I started using NVDA most of the time in the second half of 2010, as the XP computer I had back then had power issues and NVDA used less resources than JAWS. When I replaced my XP computer with the Windows 7 laptop I am still using as I write this, my JAWS was too old for Windows 7 and I couldn’t afford to upgrade JAWS, so for nearly eight years now I have been using NVDA full-time. I used to say that I would probably use JAWS again if it’s needed for a job, but, now that I am unlikely to find a job, I expect to only use NVDA, which gets better and better every year, in my opinion.

Bye for now!

Now, I use NVDA at least 90 percent of the time, and I use it in situations that I never thought I would use it in.

I did also reply to Brian's other thread on this topic, and while I'm just personally interested in the discussion, I realised no-one has actually answered Mary's original question yet.  While you can't specifically have NVDA decode negative numbers which aren't formatted as such, you can have NVDA report when the font colour changes.  This would be most useful where you spreadsheet contains say all black text except for negative numbers.  To do that, press NVDA+CONTROL+D to open the document formatting options, then press alt+c to jump to "colour".  Press spacebar to toggle whether that is checked (you want it checked to report colour changes), and press ENTER to close the settings.  Now when you get to a negative number, NVDA should report it as "bright red".

As for why it is reported as "bright red 18.00" and not "-18.00", basically, that's what the person who setup the spreadsheet told Excel to tell us.  A sighted user on the same sheet doesn't see "-18.00", they see "18.00" in bright red, and interpret that to mean -18.  In the same way if the actual contents of the cell are "=A1-B1" they see the number, not the formula, unless you press CONTROL+` to toggle displaying formulas instead of values.

I can see Brian's argument for overriding the specified formatting here, but would have to then ask back - in which cases should we override what the creator of the spreadsheet has deliberately setup, and in which cases should we defer to what they wanted?

Re: Sluggish browse mode keystrokes in Google Chrome

 

Hi.
I also find gmail to be slower in performance when is used in combination with chrome canary and windows 10.
On windows 7 it works fine.
I am having the latest windows 10 update 1809 and nvda 2018.3.2.
I also tried with nvda alpha portable with similar results.
It is especially slow when composing or replying emails, or when you read the body of an email.
For my kace it shouldn't be slow as I don't have conversations enabled, and I open each email in a new window using shift+enter.
I am using the new gmail interface which is not yet enabled for everyone by default as far as I know.
You can enable it in gmail's settings.

Re: NVDA and eclipse

Isaac Porat
 

Hello


Eclipse although written in java does not use Swing, it uses SWT, the Standard Widget Toolkit, which does not require the java access bridge, it should work with NVDA out of the box.


Although not recently, I used Eclipse with NVDA for years, various issues were address over the years.

I checked just now my Eclipse version and it works fine.


Have a look at Eclipse accessibility which is one of the topics here:
https://help.eclipse.org/luna/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.user%2Fconcepts%2Faccessibility%2Faccessmain.htm

After you start Eclipse, when you press Alt do you get the menu?

You can alt+tab to the speech viewer and then alt+f4 to close it.  The speech view shows a transcript of what NVDA reads.  Visually it sits on top of other windows so it is always visible - using the mouse, you can click on the window instead of alt+tabbing to it, but you then still need to alt+f4 to close it. You can also close it from NVDA's tools menu (the same way you opened it).

 

Having said that, it shouldn't stop you opening another NVDA window - I just opened speech viewer and then opened the general settings window and it happily let me have both open.  Have you perhaps got an NVDA settings window open already?

That probably has little to do with winamp.
Couple of things you could try if you haven't:
Make sure Winamp has a high enough volume set in your Windows audio mixer. You can get to it from the system tray. If you have Windows 10, you can control the output volume of the various applications that use audio. Not good for fine-tuning in my experience, but if you find a programme always has a low volume, it doesn't hurt to check.
Make sure the volume in Winamp is high enough. Up and down arrows usually control this, as you probably know.

Finally, winamp has a pre-amp as well. This is for boosting the amplitude of sounds that have a low output volume, IE, the volume of the stream or file itself is low. Open the equalizer with alt-g. You'll probably have to ctrl-tab to put focus on the equalizer. Then, hit the grave accent key to increase the preamp power. You don't want to do this too much or else you'll get distortion. Just boost the sound until it's comfortable.

I just tried the new winamp but I don't think it's that much better. I just tried listening to an oldies station and the volume was very low.

Just to let you all know win amp is now on www.ninite.com.  I am wondering if the new version is any better than the older versions? Just let me know and I will install it.

hi,

Is this a UIA issue or NVDA caused issue?

Hi everyone,

Just catching up on this as I've been away for a few days.  I too can replicate the issue.  In the interim, I have two possible workarounds:

- When on one of the edit fields, press NVDA+numpad 8 (Desktop keyboard layout) or NVDA+shift+up arrow (Laptop keyboard layout) to move the review cursor to the containing object.  That reads the label and you can then type into the field as normal.  Unless you've set the review cursor to not follow focus, you can press the same keystroke when you tab to the next field.

- When tabbing through that info page, before the edit fields there is a "properties" grouping.  Press ENTER on that, and then ENTER on the first (only) option which is "Advanced properties".  That opens a traditional dialog box with more fields and options, and the labels read correctly on that dialog.

Regards

Quentin.

Dear Cearbhall

Thank you for your message and for your help.

You can use the fields to specify the values of many of the file properties.
These file properties are available from the Windows File Explorer
properties dialog box (on the "Details" tab). Some people use them to help
organize and find files, and they can be useful when you want to find the
correct person to contact about fixing a problem in a file.

Thank you

David
