Hi All,

 

I am using win10 1809 with the latest nvda.  When I go into window I and open system sounds nvda doesn’t read when I tab or arrow though the selections.  The other setting like display and the like work fine.  Has anyone else noticed this?  Thanks for any help.

Re: NVDA ticking instead of speaking

Tyler, you're a star! I had considered filter keys but didn't realise shift needed to be held down for quite that long to turn it off, and I was trying the left shift key anyway!

Happy all is working again now :)

Cheers,

Giles


Re: NVDA ticking instead of speaking

Giles Turnbull
 

nope, presing NVDA and s to togle doesn't make any difference and, if I try to swipe on the touchscreen or tap the screen, NVDA does say, "Desktop"

so clearly it is set to speek but for some reason it is not accepting any keyboard input.

I'm baffled!

Giles


Re: NVDA ticking instead of speaking

Gene
 

The message says that Insert s does nothing.  I would suggest running Narrator and trying to run the installer.  Does it speak or do you need to use Narrator to read the first installation screen?  Cancel the installation if speech doesn't occur.  If it does, tell the installer to create a portable version. You can use that for the poetry reading if the installed version doesn't work.  Let us know if the portable version works.  I believe you will be able to use either Narrator or the portable version to solve the problem.  If you try to run the installer and see what happens, that will provide more information.  also, what speech are you using?  At this point it isn't clear whether the problem is an NVDA problem or a synthesizer problem.

Hi


it may as you said have speech mode set to beeps. If so use the nvda key + letter S to toggle it back to talk. The options are off, beep and talk.


I thought it might of been the mouse audio cordinates tried it but does not sound like it and does it on when the mouse is moved.

Re: NVDA ticking instead of speaking

Tyler Spivey
 

My best guess without hearing the click is that it might be Filter Keys.
If your NVDA speaks with the touch screen, then it's not the speech mode.
Try this. Hold down your right shift key for 8 seconds.
Filter Keys will make sort of a clicking sound if it's been turned on,
and the right options have been set.
That should toggle it. Once done, you can go into the settings and
disable the shortcut.

Hadn't had issues with it, and just tried it out again, and, worked fine
here - latest NVDA, windows 10 1809, 64 bit, etc.


While I normally just type system sounds into start menu search box - I use
windows classic shell, but, that wouldn't affect anything other than start
menu itself - and, hit enter on change system sounds, and then tab over 3
times to the sort of treeview, and, like said, it reads fine there, on my
side?

Re: I need a Web Content Management System that works well with NVDA

mikolaj holysz <miki123211@...>
 

I personally like Hugo. It's a headless cms generating static pages. It means you keep your page in a folder on disk as markdown documents, and run hugo on publish. It generates html file based on those markdown files and a content theme you import. You can publish those content files onto anything that can support static pages. You don't even need to have php support on your web server, if it can serve html, it's good enough. That means you can post it on github pages, a normal webserver via ftp or any free webhosting solution with a few megs of space and no fancy features.

It's very accessible, as all the content and configuration are managed via the file system and the command line. Familiarity with the command line is needed but for someone who already knows how to use that, it's a perfect solution because there's absolutely no GUI, just commands to build everything, markdown for posts and toml/jaml/json for configs.

One downside of that kind of cms is that you can't really have pages dynamically rendered on the server, however, you can embed widgets for other services providing dynamic services. For example, instead of using comments build in to your cms, you can use disqus or your own solution, either with iframes or javascript and ajax.

Hello all,

This morning I've had a few instances where NVDA would just stop
speaking. I had to press CTRL+ALT+n to get it working again. At one
time it stopped, I was playing an audio game with Pandora in the
background, and another time I had both Chrome and Spotify open. I've
also downloaded several files overnight. Is anyone else having this
problem while running multiple tasks on the computer?





Re: Accessibility improvements to groups.io

 

Mark Fletcher has always been quite responsive to the input I've given him with regard to making accessibility improvements to the web interface to Groups.io as well.

He would really like for it to be as accessible as possible but, like most folks who do not use screen readers at all, he often has no idea of exactly how to accomplish that.  Doing as Mr. Kingett has done, and giving very specific examples of where accessibility is lacking and what should be done to remedy those issues is exactly the way to get the changes you want and need as quickly as Mark can get to them (which is sometimes faster than others, as Groups.io is pretty much a one man show).

Going further, this is exactly the kind of feedback that should be given to any site with accessibility problems.  They may or may not act on it, but I can guarantee they will not act on a broad, general, "Your site is inaccessible," message as many have no real idea of what that means or even how they might go about fixing it.  Your own input, with direct examples of problem(s) and their solution(s), is the fastest track to change.  I will be the first to admit that you may not get any change, but if you're going to try make sure the input guides those who'd actually be making the nuts and bolts changes.
