Re: New Google results page??

Gene
 

All maximizing a page does is make it larger.  it doesn't change content.  I do what I have done for years, use the letter h to move by heading.  There are some different headings than before.  Then there is a heading that says something like web results.  I haven't done searches to compare, but the one or two searches I've done seem to show the same or about the same results below the web content heading. 
 
I'm skeptical that the actual results have changed.  See this article:
 
Changing the results would mean a major change in how google decides to show results in terms of their order.  I doubt they would do it and this article not saying anything appears to be strong evidence against it or against any major change. 
 
Are you looking above the section of web results and seeing differences?  The sections above web results are not the search results people have been using for years.  Those under the heading appear to be.

Hi.  I have noticed that Google has recently changed it's search results
criteria.  Yes, there is more emphasis on video and pictoral results.  A
few things you can try.

1.  Press the windows key plus up arrow to maximize the search page.  I
am not saying it will yield better results, but it might help some.

2.  try ending your search word or phrase with a  question mark, like
"Fishing lines?" or "Household Gadgets?"

3.  Even if you are given a video or picture search result, there is no
harm in clicking the page in question.  There might be textual answers
that might lead you somewhere.

4.  You might find your answer in a page other than the first one, like
in page two or 3 of the search results.  Sometimes, patience can be a
virtue.

5.  If all else fails, or if you are in a hurry and do not have the
patience to persevere with Google Search, then resort to using other
search engines like Bing or Yahoo.  These are my strategies, and they do
work for me most times.

Cheers!

Re: List of Annotations in Word

It sounds like this is an issue across the board, because it sounds like JAWS is having a very similar issue with Word and track changes.

Basically NVDA gives the process 20 seconds to run and if it hasn't finished in that time, it cancels it so that the user isn't left with an unresponsive system for too long.  We're looking into how we can improve that.

Word's reviewing pane lists all the track changes etc.  You can get to that from the reviewing pane, and the easy, quick and logical shortcut* to get to it is alt+r, z, t, t, p, enter

If you want to "clear" track changes so you can just see comments etc, you can press ALT+r, a, 2, s to accept all tracked changes and turn off tracking.

Abbie, I'm replying from the website using the latest version of firefox. Reply is actually a link. Have you tried NVDA+f7 to see if you can find it that way? & what version of FF are you using? To send the msg, you can tab to & press either private or discard or reply to group, which are actually buttons.


Re: Strange Behavior with NVDA and groups.io Website

 

Abbie,

      I can't explain your issue with the Reply button, but I am wondering if you've considered one of the Daily Digest formats as opposed to the Daily Summary format.  Digests come out either when 12 messages have rolled in to the group or in the morning like the Daily Summary if less than 12 messages have come in during the prior day.  The digest format includes a "Reply to Group" mailto link that will fire up your e-mail client with the subject correctly formatted for a reply to the topic of the message you've clicked that link for.  You need not use the web interface.

      Not that I don't love hearing about someone using the web interface, but it is possible to avoid it if that's what you'd prefer.  You can also really limit the topics you allow in to your inbox by using advanced subscription preferences using the "Following only" option coupled with the "First message" option coupled with the "Auto follow replies" option.  That way you see only the first message in any topic and will never see another for that topic unless you either intentionally follow it or reply to it, in which case it will be followed as a result.  See:    Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io

Strange Behavior with NVDA and groups.io Website

Abbie Taylor <abbietaylor945@...>
 

I don’t know if this is an issue with NVDA or the groups.io site, but I thought I would bring it up for what it’s worth. I subscribe to this and two other lists on this platform in daily summary mode to cut down on the number of messages that land in my in box. This means that the only way I can reply to a message is through the website. Today, I discovered that the Reply button is missing. I was in Firefox at the time. I switched to Chrome and then Internet Explorer before finally finding the reply button. How weird is that?

acronyms as words

Larry Silvermintz <silvermintz@...>
 

The voice I’m using in NVDA (TruVoice) is spelling-out any string that is all-capitals (i.e. acronyms) instead of pronouncing as single words.  TruVoice reads them as words with other screen readers.  How can I get NVDA to speak all-caps-strings as words?

Re: some questions about NVDA

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Yep


I downloaded it and sussed it out. My wife who is sighted said she could not see any thing at all only the mouse.

I had a quick play with it on going through different screens and it done its job.


Now all it needs is to assign a short cut or gesture to turn it on and off. I guess that will maybe done in the next update to that add on?


It did make me laugh i had the monitor off as that is the way i usually do it no use having it on if you can not see it then called the wife. she said the monitor was off so she turned it on but it was black as apart from the mouse. got her to use the computer that way for a little then told her how to disable it.



It does it job.

Hi Abdul,

 

1) I haven't been paying attention, I'm not sure what Flexible web is?

2) There is a screen curtain feature being tested currently.  You can read more and try it here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7857

3) Image description:  Good idea, There was an issue created awhile ago, but it doesn't appear anyone has looked at the current situation: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7671

4) Re OCR has gone downhill.  I'm not sure.  It's not even something that's easy to replicate

5) There are several performance issues with Office we are slowly working on.  If you have a particular one in mind, search for it on our Issue tracker and you will hopefully find a relevant conversation to follow: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues

6) Unlikely.  The problem is that CAPTCHAs are designed to make you do something that proves you are a human, so bots and computer generated algorithms can't get past them.  Ergo, WE can't write an algorithm to defeat them (and if we do, they will change the test, because if we can, the spammers can too).  The best approach is to advocate for change in addressing the problem that CAPTCHA seeks to solve.

7) Not sure off the top of my head.  After it happens, if you could send me a copy of your NVDA log, ideally at debug level  (to info@... ) I can have a look and try for you.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Hi all. Here are some questions I want to ask

1.      Can we expect flexible web with NVDA in future?

2.      What about the screen curtain addon for NVDA?

3.      As you all know, Narrator has an image description feature, why we doesn’t have this important feature in NVDA?

4.      In the early updates of win10. When the win10 OCR implemented on NVDA. It recognize almost everything, for example, the photos in photos app, even I used it for reading video games menu. But now, its very laggy. And doesn’t recognize as it was before. Why is that?

5.      In Microsoft office 2013 or 2016, the NVDA has so many delays, while reading, writing, and while reading the ribbon menus, why?

6.      In the modern browsers like the Firefox quantum, solving captcha images is the main issue for many vi people. Can we expect a feature in NVDA for it

7.      Last question, I’m using Microsoft mail app. And I’ve created a sepret profile for it. Sometimes after reading or replying to a mail. When I press windows plus m to move to the desktop. The NVDA stops reading anything. And it force me to restart the NVDA, why?

I hope all of the above mentioned problems will be fixed in the

Future!

Keep the NVDA alive!

Why are you using a preview build of Safari instead of the stable version that comes with the Mac? I would expect that what is built into the Mac or comes with your Mac has had most bugs worked out by Apple.

Preview builds of safari exist. Google for that. Actually rezilio is not accessible with mac os at all, nothing reads and the html area doesn’t work at all. I remember having the same experience on windows as well, but that was with the free plan for both machines. Ill have to try this again.

I use the preview builds so yeah. And some sites like reddit go busy

There is no way to set up rezillio as a service in mac os by the way.
You get stuck with an inaccessibe html page you can’t even access to
add folders etc. I don’t know how to set it up as a service on windows
but yeah that was the advice I got from someone soemwhare lol!

I understand that you prefer Chrome, but we sometimes have to switch

to use Safari for it. What issues are you having in Safari?

You might also check if there is a VoiceOver mailing list that would
be better suited for this topic. I mean better suited as in you may
be able to expand to a larger audience of just VoiceOver users, as
you are asking about Mac.

Good luck!

I just prefer chrome and safari right now has issues. Anywy, is there
a way to get rezilio sync working on mac this way I can use it on
both mac and windows and just sync stuff I need from one machine to
another when I need to. I heard you can set it up as a service and
getit out of the way but this is all new to me.

Wish that rezilio sync were accessible for mac os, but the author
does not want to do this even though he nows that we have isues. If
the interface were accessible wiht chrome I would use it but sadly I
don’
think it will be.

1. firefox, open your sync interface.

3. BOttom of the screen with control end, you'll find a remove

Click it.


All done.

No need to rebuild databases, remove indexes. That just hurts more
than helps in long term.

The only thing I do is remove the .zip and .log files in the
appdata
folder.

Hi.

Is there a way for us blinks to disconnect and remove folders.

I have had one that hasn't downloaded much over ages due to slow
connection and download rate with users, etc.

Well suddenly it seems bt sync seems to be stuck trying to sync
it,
and not doing so unless its indexes are dammaged, I have killed
the
indexes but to be honest, if I could remove it from my sync that
would be fine, its not an important folder and I can probably
gleem
it from somewhere else, then again, I may just get rid of it
totally its not like something I need, there are other folders I
could just munge at this point.

However right now I need to rebuild my entire sync database.

I'd leave syncing completely and if it were not for ultrabit I'd
do
just that.

reality is though that because I am going to be replacing this box
sometimes this year and just want to keep it going, the easiest
way
out of this, is to delete my sync profile, uninstall resilio sync
and leave it at that.

I will retry today but if it doesn't work, I am going to probably
temperarily stop syncing my files at least for now.

For one thing, you have to be careful not to touch the dots when they are refreshing, or you get nonsense. it's wierd, but true. You have to be careful when touching something that is meant to be touched.

Hi Steve,

OT as it may be, what do you not like about the dotwatch?  I'm looking at it right now.  On paper it seems really nice, and it competes pretty well on price with the apple watch and most other smart watches out there as far as I can tell.  four cells is a bit small, but how many more cells can fit on a wrist anyway?

Interested to hear your thoughts as I've been really excited about it and seriously considering buying it.

Best,

Erik

Hi,

When the dot mini is released, will it also work with NVDA? The dot mini is being developed by the same people who make the dot watch with its 4-cell braille display, but the dot mini will have a 16-cell display.

Re: Intermittent lack of feedback in Windows Explorer

 

Hmmm I have win7 as for my display, it does frequently lock up butt thats because I am using a beta driver of my amd card, the last release in fact before they upgraded, my card is no longer made anymore and thats one reason I may either replace the system soon or just role back to 2015 drivers, however, some newer games needed newer drivers.

sometimes things do go weird but just as well I am blind.

 I am as you will see also having windows lock ups on two 7 machines and the only thing in common seems to be something to do with usb, but the add ons have been here for ages so its either nvda or a driver they updated about a few weeks ago, Intell I think.

Hi,

Yes, I thought so. I’m hoping that there would be a resolution from both NV Access and Microsoft (a little hint: some of you are already testing a potential fix).

And does restarting NVDA resolve the problem for a while? If it does and if the problem happens again, then I think I know what might be going on. Also, which Windows version are you using?

Hello,

no, the issue cannot be described in terms of delays. When feedback fails to occur, it will then simply not occur no matter how long I would wait. It is genuinely different behavior rather than just slowed down normal behavior.

Best,

Felix

When cursoring up and down, does the selcted item  get said after a delay,
and if so and you hear that, can you then select the file?

I had this with explorer both on windows 7 and 10, and it was the processor
in the  computer actually not running at full speed. It seems on many
laptops the processor is slow to catch up with demand and hence the actual
selection is behind the  one you think it is on, or worse, on nothing at
all!
I'm sure somebody else will respond but I had to go digging into advanced
power management and crank up the idle speed to at least 50 percent, it was
set at 10 percent, before acceptable results occurred.
Of course it could be something else, but this was the reason I found for
most of it. I would have thought that as nvda is hogging one core and hence
stopping the machine using it, Windows ought to sense it and up the speed of
the cores. It seems that this only happens sometimes when more than one core
is maxed out. I guess this might be because nvda is a 32 bit app, not a 64
bit one with  the ability to  push threads though different processor cores.
I'd welcome some more knowledgeable people to comment.

Hello,
I'd like to ask around if anyone else has noticed this disturbing trend:
When pressing enter on a folder in Windows Explorer, NVDA usually
announces
"element view list" followed by the name of the first element in that
folder. Often, however, NVDA remains silent. Requesting developer info for
the navigator object then yields something like the log excerpt I am
posting below.
Any ideas how I could make this behave? Being a child of the age of DOS,
when there is silence I usually wait because I assume my command takes
longer to complete. I know I'm pedantic, but then this is software and
not,
say, astrology.
Here is that log excerpt now:
