Hi everyone,

As noted in several threads, there have been issues with iTunes, and also issues with installing and creating the shortcut in German.

This morning we have released NVDA 2018.3rc3 which aims to address both of these issues.

Find the release notes and links to download and the full what's new at: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2018-3rc3-released/

Kind regards

Re: Automatic Reading of Footnotes in Word

Akshaya Choudhary
 

Glad I could Help!

For reading the comments of your tutors you don't need to convert the original word file. NVDA will announce when it will come across a comment while reading a document. Then, you can press NVDA+alt+C to read that particular comment. Additionally, you can press NVDA+F7 to bring up the elements list in word and can get the preview of all the comments in the document. You can even jump to the comment of your choice from the same.

Add-on Updater (proof of concept) September 14th build will now check updates for Windows 10 App Essentials

 

Hi all,

 

Add-on Updater (proof of concept) September 14th build is now available. After installing this build, if you happen to be using Windows 10 App Essentials (development snapshots, that is), you’ll find that you might be prompted to update that add-on, too. If this is the case, I recommend updating Windows 10 App Essentials first, and then update Add-on Updater.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Softwares to compose music for the blind

John Isige
 

I missed the beginning of this, but if you're looking for stuff that does notation, MuseScore can at least read it, rather you can read it with it, and some work was done on making adding notation accessible, but I haven't messed with any of it. Here's the main MuseScore page.


https://musescore.org/en


Here's the accessibility stuff for writing notation.

I have PDF scores of a lot of piano music and wonder if there is any

I'd love a means of converting a PDF or a midi file into a text from

itunes issue handled

 

Hi.

Wow joseph and all, that was a really quick fix, itunes uia works now its just like it was.

For now I have loaded rc3 on the effected machines and it works.

Its good this came out during an near update cycle.

What was actually wrong and did my descriptions help at all.

Its good that all things work as expected though.

I have all my systems on the latest itunes now.

Thanks for promptly fixing.


Re: itunes latest issue

 

Is rc3 out now or is there a try build so I can check this?

I do have system access for the rest of the next day or so so if this is confirmed, I can probably put everything back.

Have any of the devs looked at the itunes 12.9 window and see exactly what it is, the universal app and the desktop versions appear to be the same, menus and the like work, the main window is not visible to nvda.

And since it works with just about everything, I am now wandering if its a simple thing.

I can't fix it, but maybe there could be an addon for itunes universal and that would work with both versions.

This knee jerk about apple being totally crap well it is a knee jerk reaction, but to be honest if its just an communication/ interaction issue maybe this will help with access to other windows.

Excellent, I'm glad it was worthwhile!  Thanks for taking the time to let me know.

Very timely! I use excel a lot and need row and column headings spoken. However, when I go to Outlook, this setting causes NVDA to say Subject before speaking the email subject line as it appears in the Inbox. I have just followed your advice here and I now have a spreadsheet profile attached to Excel that turns on the row and column headings and another profile called email that is attached to Outlook that has all table detection turned off. I can now switch comfortably between the two applications without the nuisance of extra unwanted verbiage!

 

I really appreciate your advice.

 

All the best,

To go one step further with that, if you never want column and row headings reported in say Firefox, but do want them in Excel, you can use "configuration profiles" to do it.

 

1. Set NVDA up how you "normally" want it.

2. Open the program you want setup differently (eg Firefox)

3. Choose "Configuration profiles" from the NVDA menu, or press NVDA+control+p.

4. Press alt+n to create a new profile

5. Press tab to move to "Use this profile for".

6. Press the right arrow to select the "Current application (Firefox)" radio button.

7. Press enter to create the profile (the name that we left blank between steps 4 and 5 is automatically filled in with the program name - Firefox in this case).

8. In Firefox, make any changes, such as turning off reporting of row and column headers.

 

Now that the profile is setup, any changes you make to most NVDA settings while that program is the active window, are saved to its profile (eg, changing keyboard echo, the speech rate, punctuation or even synthesizer).

 

(as always, for more useful tips like this, check out "Basic Training for NVDA" in eBook, audio or Braille from http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/)

Quentin.

Hi List

 

This is just a bit of information for those who don’t know.

 

When one reads information on Wikipedia, NVDA repeats the row and column headers by default.  This can be annoying when trying to read tables of information in browse mode, therefore, use the following steps to switch off row and column headings in NVDA:

 

  • Press NVDA+Ctrl+D to go to the “Document and Formatting” dialog. (NVDA key = Insert, numpad 0 or Capslock depending on the setting)
  • Press Alt+E twice to go to “row and Column headings”.
  • Press the Spacebar to check or uncheck the checkbox.
  • Enter to apply this setting.

 

Kind regards

You should have both Adobe and qRead on your system if you want, imo.
I like qRead mostly because it is fast as hell. If you set Adobe to
load the entire document, which is wise if you really want proper
functionality to work, but then try to open a really large file, you've
no doubt noticed how irritatingly long it takes to process.
qRead can do this in just a few seconds. So I like how small and snappy
it is by comparison.

However, sometimes you will just need the Adobe product instead.
qRead doesn't always seem to show document formatting properly. You
can't print from it if I remember right, and anyway, if formatting is
wanky, you wouldn't want to. You can't fill out forms. Etc, etc.

Insert+ctrl+f works in Adobe.

You should have both Adobe and qRead on your system if you want, imo.
I like qRead mostly because it is fast as hell. If you set Adobe to
load the entire document, which is wise if you really want proper
functionality to work, but then try to open a really large file, you've
no doubt noticed how irritatingly long it takes to process.
qRead can do this in just a few seconds. So I like how small and snappy
it is by comparison.

However, sometimes you will just need the Adobe product instead.
qRead doesn't always seem to show document formatting properly. You
can't print from it if I remember right, and anyway, if formatting is
wanky, you wouldn't want to. You can't fill out forms. Etc, etc.

I find that search works in qread but have trouble searching for text
in acrobat reader.

Re: google domains configuration web site seems inaccessible

I'd say more and more Google pages are becoming less accessible. On the topic of the question, namesilo.com is a registrar I've used without any problem for about a year and a half now.

    I believe you have 60 days to wait until you can transfer a domain, but I'd suggest waiting the 60 days, then transferring to NameSilo.

Seems like we are losing ground in the area of accessibility in this regard.

Subject: [nvda] google domains configuration web site seems unaccessible

Hi folks,
I am trying to configure my web domain on google domains but while using NVDA and Firefox, when I go to domains.google.com and log in, the tabs appear, but when I navigate, for example, to the configure dns tab and press enter, or nvda/numEnter the options which are supposed to appear don't seem to be available to me with NVDA. I have not confirmed that they do appear on the screen, all I know is that I cannot get to them using my conventional methods, arrows or tab.

Any thoughts?

Rusty
