Re: taking screen shots using nvda?

Quentin Christensen
 

Press the PRINTSCREEN key to take a screenshot of the whole screen.

ALT+PRINTSCREEN takes a shot of only the active Window (so not the task bar or anything else)

The image itself is copied to the clipboard and you can paste it in an email (depending on your email client it may paste it in the body, or as an attachment.

If you press WINDOWS+PRINTSCREEN it will automatically save the image to your "Pictures" library in the "Screenshots" folder, called screenshot.png for the first one, then screenshot(2).png for the second and so on.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: use ctrl+shift+s is not read notes when I in powerpoint

Quentin Christensen
 

Dear Logo Kuo,

CONTROL+SHIFT+S only works to read notes when you are delivering the presentation itself (after you have pressed F5).  Then it toggles between NVDA reading the slide and the notes (but still only shows the slide on screen).

To get to the notes pane when designing the slide, you can press F6 to move between window sections.  The Notes is near the end so maybe SHIFT+F6 to get from the slide to it, and F6 to get back.  If the Notes pane isn't there, press CONTROL+SHIFT+H to unhide it (that is a toggle so if it is visible it will hide it).

Regards

Quentin.

Hi Joseph.  I actually have a web hosting plan which I have not used because of various work and family reasons which doesn't permit me the time to develop my site.  It has two more years to run, so rather than let it go to waste, and if you and the developers are interested, write me off list and we can make the arrangements.  There will be no cost involved,   just a little gesture to the community for doing such great and wonderful work for all of us.  Cheers!

At the time I didn’t know about it. I think I did ask about that as well, and if I remember the answer was no. And there was no room on the surface thing all the usb slots were taken. These guys really wanted me to use jaws, and I told you  the rest of what hapepned in another post.  I’m actually kind of glad I left although I will miss the kids. They never go the typing programs and stuff I set up to work, but oh well.

I agree with all of yoru stattments, jean. I fact I used that same argument in regard to nvda, even showed them a bit of how it worked, they basically told me that I was going to use jaws on the surface thing and I was going to like it, Ok they were a lot more nicer than that but I was not happy about it still.

Well nvda is not jaws, the only reason jaws is better than nvda is its older than us and thats just about it.

But I think we will get there.

We have a scripting language which is a standard language that people use, we use standard libraries and formats, there is no custom company proprietry code anywhere.

Saying that, nvda was built for the cloud and web systems a lot of the newer apps handle well with it.

Universal we are not there just yet but we are damn close now to that.

Jaws is older, we don't have what jaws has right now so jaws is still better than nvda but we will catch up, and quickly.

Re: Problem with NVDA and Braille input

I've noticed similar issues with my BrailleNote Touch, and I have my braille table set to Grade 2. I mostly use my qwerty keyboard for typing and the Touch for proofreading and editing. The backspace, space, and enter keys work as they should with NVDA, but if there is some way to input braille with the Perkins-style keyboard on my Touch and have it come out right, that would be nice.

The three Kaysys phones are all candy bar style phones with a screen and digit pad and they do not fold.  I've actually never seen anything like them, so I wonder if they did have one of the major makers do a one-off redesign especially for them.

Re: Add-on development: contracts, Python and such

I know that this was discussed a while ago. I agree that something does have to be done, but I have no clue how we would get the companies on board. I like your thinking though.

On 19 Jul 2018, at 11:58, Adriani Botez wrote:

And as far as contracting is concerned, we will not have access to professional programers like freedom scientific because many companies do not know how to manage open-source projects. Many people think that they cannot earn anything with open-source projects.

 

Something has to change in the way of thinking to get to the point where every assistive technology company provides professional support for NVDA.

 

In any case, if programers want to get paid for their add-ons, than we need an add-on store for NVDA where developers can place paid add-ons. Maybe NV Access thinks about it.

 

Yannick Plassyard from France has developed such a store.

Hi,

I’m starting a brand new thread that should provide a space to talk about add-on development, including contract work, Python and such.

 

Cheers,

Hi. I’ve asked this before. No Edge does not support RSS feeds. I wish it did.

Hi,

I believe Edge does not support RSS at this time, although I haven’t looked deeply in Edge for a few days.

Cheers,

Hi Joseph,

Please any idea how to use RSS in Edge?  I am directing the question to you as I haven’t gotten any suggestions on the topic.  Edge is becoming more responsive with NVDA and loads much faster.  I am considering making it my default browser.

Blessings

Subject: [nvda] Windows 10 App Essentials add-on: compatible with wxPython 4, version 18.10 to require NVDA 2018.3 or later, other Win10 goodies

 

Hi all,

 

Before I go any further, I’d like to announce that Windows 10 App Essentials add-on is compatible with wxPython 4.

 

Version hopping for the third time this year: if I’m not mistaken, NVDA 2018.3 may include several important features from Windows 10 App Essentials add-on into NVDA Core. Due to this, starting from add-on version 18.10 stable, NVDA 2018.3 or later will be required.

 

The following are features migrating from this add-on to the NVDA screen reader:

 

  • Basic support for IUIAutomation6 interface (Windows 10 Redstone 5).
  • NVDA will recognize and read contents of more dialogs in Windows 10 (especially on Redstone 5) and various apps, including dialogs found in various universal apps.

 

In addition to this, recent changes for Windows 10 ecosystem support include:

 

  • In Microsoft Edge, aria-roledescription text is recognized.
  • Espeak NG will read emoji characters.

 

Possible features to be included if pull request review passes:

 

  • Native support for various modern input features, including emoji panel, dictation, hardware input suggestions, and cloud clipboard. If the review (currently in progress) passes, this will mean you don’t have to use Windows 10 App Essentials add-on to use these features, as NVDA itself will support them out of the box.
  • In Microsoft Edge, more notifications, including aria-role=alert will be announced (review has been requested).

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: Smartphones with Keypads or Keyboards

I wonder if this is the phone that the kapsys phone is based on. It is an Android phone running either Kitkat or Lollypop and has a touch screen on the top section and keys on the lower section.  Kapsys has superimposed their own skin and a suite of specialized talking apps. They're selling it for around $500 with a GPS system added on for another $300. This is the French company that marketed a handheld GPS navigation device called the Kapten.

Subject: [nvda] Smartphones with Keypads or Keyboards

This seems to me to be worthy of a spin-off topic of its own.

If you're not looking for a phone where you want a full keypad for texting, but would like a dial pad for calling, and want an Android device all rolled into one there's the Freetel Musashi FTJ161A
which is hugely expensive, but one of a kind as far as I know since it can act as a full smartphone with touch screen on the top half and still has a standard dial pad on the bottom half.  (For more on this device see:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Freetel+Musashi+flip+phone)  Freetel tried to enter the US market in 2016/2017 but pretty much failed in that attempt.  Their what-was-then-flagship standard smartphone, the Samurai Kiwami, can now be had for under $100, and it works fine on T-Mobile's GSM network and should do the same for Verizon.  It is, however, still an Android Lollipop (5.1) device out of the box and since Freetel has left the US market ongoing support cannot be expected.

This web search returns many options for currently available smartphones with keyboards, https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Smartphone+with+keyboard, and this one for smartphones with keyboards and touchscreens, https://duckduckgo.com/?q=smartphone+with+keyboard+and+touch+screen.
There is, of course, a huge amount of overlap between those two lists.

Re: bookmarks in firefox

Gene
 

How are you getting to bookmarks?  There are different ways.  Whether you can delete them may depend on how you get to them.

Hi all,

 

I’m using a fairly current version of firefox and nvda in win 7.

I can accesss and go to bookmarks;  how do I delete bookmarks?

I thought using the context key or the delete key while on a mookmark in the list would do it, no go.   Nothing havens when I use the context key or the delete key.

Suggestions?

 

Thanks,

Monte


Re: VFO not complimentary about NVDA

 

Hmmm so anyone can join home use?

and if you really need jaws and if you are a home user, you can call VFO and say the following: "hello, I would like to purchase jaws for $120 United States dollars  through the jaws for home use program." By calling and asking for the special low pricing I was able to buy a full copy of jaws for $120 plus an SMA for another $120. I figure its good to have more than one screen reader just in case NVDA can't read something, I could shut it off, load up jaws and see if it works better in certain situations.



Re: Help Edge keeps refreshing

 

Not necessarily, I guess it could, I sometimes access sites others do not.

Had this with waterfox today.

Reboot your router then your computer.

Sadly broadband units don't screw themselves all the way, but if a little screwed up especially isp units they crash partially and things don't run till you cycle power.

Hi,

I need some help, I am using all the latest updates and running Win 10.

Every time I use edge it keeps refreshing and a lot of the times I get a
message there was a problem loading page.

If I turn off NVDA this does not happen as I got my sighted wife to
check this for me. I have even tried it with Narrator and there was no
problem.

This happens with any web site I try.

If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
