Hi, Same here. I had to go directly to the Gmail site and get rid of the huge thread List admin thread. I had to go to Delete forever after I deleted it from my windows ten mail client.

I don't know why, but Gmail seems to do weird things with threads

sometimes. I remember before I unfollowed that topic, I had several

versions of it in my inbox. I don't know why it wasn't murged into one

big thread, but it wasn't. This seems to happen quite a bit with list

I would think the same. I wouldn't have thought to use AIRA, but

that's probably the only way you can read screen shots. As for sending

screen shots, that's pretty easy, but I wish Windows would be like the

mac where you actually hear the camera as it takes the screenshot.

This is part of the reason why I've never taken one, but at least in

theory it's pretty easy to do.

Re: Limit to number of messages in groups.io E-mail threads

Sarah k Alawami
 

No, I don't think they are limited. It is up to the mod to lock after a certain number of messages. I think in my case I have all of my threads on all lists I run set to unlimited, and they can get quite large. I'm ok with that as I just ignore the ones I don't want to read.

Hi,

Ah, I see.

What you are describing is called “focus mode” where whatever key you press will be dealt not by NVDA but by the web application you are using. For example, pressing K while playing a YouTube video will pause the video if focus mode is on, whereas NVDA will move you to the next link if browse mode is active.

Screen review, on the other hand, will let you review the contents of an app’s window. For example, under older programs, activating screen review mode will let you see the contents of the app that aren’t accessible with keyboard commands. These days screen review would not work properly in newer apps but you can find out the contents of a window by doing an OCR (NVDA+R).

Cheers,

Joseph

Well, I thought that screen review mode meant that a page allowed you to activate certain shortcuts that a page had.

For example, on YouTube you can press “K”  for it to pause and play.

Screen review isn't the same as reading by object. If you open a document in Notepad, and I suspect a word processor in general, that whole document is one object. If you are in object review, you can move through the entire document if you wish. If you are in screen review, you can only move through what is on screen. Screen review reviews what is on screen. Object navigation allows you to move through various objects, on and off screen and its at times, the only way to work with a program.

You aren't reading this or that in an object when you use screen review. You are reading anything on screen.

If you haven't used a program where the only way to work with it is by object navigation, you may not realize the importance of the ability. Many people may not have to use object navigation much, if at all, many people find it helpful, important, or essential if it is important to them to use an application that requires. it.

Actually in my case I don't need to go into object mode. I just use screen review, get to where i want, then use object left, right, read the current one, copy to the clipboard if I need to and, it's done. In fact most of the time if I use current line, I can read the current object or objects depending on the layout of the screen.

It may be that if you only use the ways of moving and reading the current line that don't involve object navigation that you won't get unexpected results. But if you use commands like numpad 8, read current line of current object, etc. you will get unexpected results unless you change to object review. I don't know how many people use these commands but I find them much more convenient. I would far rather use numpad 8 to check a current line than NVDA key up arrow. Numpad 8 is a one hand command. And when I close a message in the e-mail programs I use, delete a message and am now on the next one in the list, I use numpad 8 to read the headers without a lot of extraneous speech. That is much more convenient than using NVDA key up arrow to read the current line that way. So perhaps I should alter what I say when I discuss this.

I don't ever ever return to object review mode. and I never get odd results. I don't really know why you keep saying that as for me it is not true. I can still use my arrows then to into an object all without switching modes.

When you are in screen review mode, you can move around the screen and not change your place where you are working, for example, in a word processor, you can move around and not change the position of the cursor where you are working. Also, if you are somewhere where you can't move around using Windows commands such as up and down arrow, you can look at what is on the screen in review mode. If an error message ccomes up, you can move around it using screen review.

Don't forget to always return to object navigation mode as soon ase you are finished working in review mode. If you don't, you may get unexpected results.

Hi,

Ah, I see.

What you are describing is called “focus mode” where whatever key you press will be dealt not by NVDA but by the web application you are using. For example, pressing K while playing a YouTube video will pause the video if focus mode is on, whereas NVDA will move you to the next link if browse mode is active.

Screen review, on the other hand, will let you review the contents of an app’s window. For example, under older programs, activating screen review mode will let you see the contents of the app that aren’t accessible with keyboard commands. These days screen review would not work properly in newer apps but you can find out the contents of a window by doing an OCR (NVDA+R).

Cheers,

Joseph

Well, I thought that screen review mode meant that a page allowed you to activate certain shortcuts that a page had.

For example, on YouTube you can press “K” for it to pause and play.

Hello guys,

I think I am overthinking NVDA’s Screen Review Mode. Can someone explain it to me? Or point me to where I can learn more about it.


asking on behalf of a friend

Arlene
 

Hi list: Arlene here, I want to ask a question. My room mate is seeking employment where you have to read screen shots on the computer. Can NVDA read them? Heer’s the e-mail my room mate sent to me so I can ask on this list. Another blind computer user thinks you can’t do it. This was from another blind tec list. My room mate uses a mac computer but she has access to a windows computer that has both NVDA and Jaws on it. Here is the Message.

 

​​​​​​​​​​

Hey there Kerri!

Happy Friday! Stephanie here from Shopify. Thank you again for taking the time out of your day to meet with me yesterday regarding the Junior Support Advisor

position. I really enjoyed out chat :)

I wanted to reach out to get a little more information from you regarding the types of tools/accommodations you would require to assist with the role,

should we move forward with your application. You mentioned the use of a screen reader that would assist with all text based info - would you be able to

let me know which screen reader it is that you use so I can check in with our team to ensure compatibility?

The JSA role does involve sending and receiving image files to/from merchants. For example, we often use screenshots of merchant's online shops to help

troubleshoot issues that they may be facing. There are also image based problems that often come up often with merchants such as product image quality,

placement, and size. Are images something that you would be comfortable assisting with?

Any additional information would much appreciated as I can then pass everything along to our Accessibility team.

Hope you have an awesome weekend Kerri and I look forward to hearing back from you!

Talk soon,

Stephanie

Re: Simplifying Web Pages for Screen Reading

Gene
 

You don't need to have a page read aloud using the read aloud feature of Immersive Reader. You can turn Immersive Reader on and read the page with a screen-reader.

Also, regarding Outliner, what are you missing? I'm always suspicious of such features and that is my first question. With Immersive Reader, I'm not sure how often you may miss contents such as related links. But I would want to compare pages using these features with the page without using them. I want to know what I'm missing and if it matters.

Reading a whole page probably wouldn't be necessary but reading enough to get an idea for comparison might be important, depending on what your goals are. If, for example, related links aren't shown in Immersive Reader, that might be of importance if you want to see other information related to a subject.

Simplifying Web Pages for Screen Reading

I have just begun to try NVDA so all this might be off base or it might be useful.

Many web pages include advertisements and lots of information besides that we want to hear. Here are some ways to simplify web pages:

1. 1. <!--[endif]-->Go to Outline.com to simplify the page. Copy, type or dictate the URL of the page you wish to read into the box in the Outline.com page. You may also install Outliner as an extension in Microsoft EDGE. The extension makes a white square icon to the right of the URL space of a page. When the cursor is over this icon, NVDA announces “Outliner want access to this site”. If you click on the icon, the page becomes simplified. Pages simplified either way may be much easier to read with NVDA. The Chrome browser Web Store has an extension called Reader View Plus that seems to do the same thing. If you “pin” Reader View Plus it puts an icon to the right of the URL space.

2. 2. <!--[endif]-->In Microsoft EDGE(Chromium), many web pages show an icon immediately after the URL which is called “Immersive Reader”. When the cursor is placed on that icon NVDA announces “Enter immersive Reader F9”. When you hit F9 or click on the Immersive Reader icon, then select the Edge command “Read Aloud” (CTRL + SHIFT + U), the web page gets simplified and read out. It is very fast. I don’t know why some pages get Immersive Reader and others don’t. When Read Aloud is active, a new bar appears under the URL and at the right end is a menu that allows choice of speed and voice.

3. 3. <!--[endif]-->In Microsoft EDGE(Chromium), the Read Aloud function (Ctrl + Shift + U ) reads out web pages with or without being simplified.

4. 4. <!--[endif]-->These simplification tricks do not seem useful for pages that are compilations of other pages such as CNN.COM/NEWS, CBC.CA/NEWS, BBC.COM/NEWS.
