Re: NVDA and Facebook on the web

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.

I think you will need to make sure browse mode is off. Not sure about facebook shortcuts in particular. I’m assuming you’re using the regular facebook site?

Re: unknown

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.


Re: unknown

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.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Question about IF Interpreter NVDA add-on
 
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

Quentin Christensen
 

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.
