Yes, it's for getting to the dialog.  There is no general turn on or off because you need to set individual settings for a lot of different items.

Thanks, this is a very useful keystroke for quickly getting to the dialogue box.  But it's not a toggle for turning document formatting detecthion on and off.


Re: CAPTCHA Be Gone abandoned also?

Gene
 

Have you tried this?  I'm not sure it will work well.  Captchas use distorted letters and numbers and I don't know how well a camera picture of a screen will show the distorted characters.  Some captchas use other methods but a lot still use distorted characters.

Hi Brian,



Can you tell us about these 7 captcha solving services. Are they all fee for service? Are any of them free?



Thanks in advance.

Re: has anybody seen this using windows 1803

 

I do see this from time to time on systems that need a username and password, usually for a private ftp or other share.

Usually you get a passphrase set for that or a share.

However if its something perminant and I need web access with a username and password, and its an ftp I will be using I usually just ask for ftp access and then use my ftp client to pull the files with the advantage, I can get what I want, bugger off and I know it will be done when its done.

Re: NVDA 2018.3.1

Quentin Christensen
 

Yes, as Joseph said, it's the way we number releases which appears like a date to some synthesizers.

We generally have four main releases a year, named the year, then .1, .2 etc, so NVDA 2018.3 is the third release of the year.  Just after releasing it, we discovered big issue for Firefox users, and because we didn't want to leave them until NVDA 2018.4, we released a "minor release" and identified it with .1 at the end - so NVDA 2018.3.1.  Theoretically, if we discovered another bug we wanted to fix before the next version, we would call it NVDA 2018.3.2.  The difference with those "point releases" is that they purely fix one issue, where a full release has many updates, fixes and new features.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: Need some browser and screenreader input on a page

Marcia Yale
 

That is bizarre--I tried it with NVDA on Internet Explorer on my Windows 7
64-bit machine and if I scrolled up from the event list, which was indeed a
month behind the date it was supposed to be showing, then the month would
change, too! It kept going backwards, and then I arrowed down and the events
for the month prior to the new date would appear.

Our charity has a page with an events calendar on it at
www.kingstonassociationforblind.org

Now with nvda, I can navigate by header to the frame with the calendar in
it. I can hear it say the date its showing events from, with a clickable if
you wish to change it, but when I cursor down, it seems that the calendar
date is a month before the date its supposed to be.
With me so far?
However just powered up jaws 2018 and tried to do the same thing. Headers
do not seem to work to that point. I need to stop before it and go down, but
I'm still cursoring down and this time the event in the calendar does not
alter at all. This is in the latest version of firefox and the latest
version of Waterfox. Both seem to behave the same, ie differently on the
calendar.

Its as if the calendar thinks I've hit the scroll up in nvda but is OK in
Jaws. About the headings, well I am not an expert on Jaws, so I might be
missing something.


So what is occurring, our site builder is beginning to lose his mind!

Re: CAPTCHA Be Gone abandoned also?

Gene
 

Aside from this add-on appearing to be abandoned, for captcha services you like that can't be used with the current Firefox, if you get a portable version of Firefox that supports the add-on or add-ons, you can use the portable version just on sites where you want to solve a captcha and the current version for other sites.
 
The last version of Firefox to support a lot of older add-ons is 52ESR.
