Hi, Brian,

Do you have the webbie browser? Maybe you can try with that one. Since webbie is text-based, maybe you might have better luck with it.

When I tried to sign up for an account and I tab from edit box to edit box all I hear is edit has auto complete on the latest version of fire fox. When I tried the same thing with ie 11 all I hear when I tab from edit box to edit box is edit. I have restarted nvda with add ons disabled and it's still the same. This problems has been going on for years now and they have not fixt the problem. This problem occures in every edit box on the site the contact form and the sign up for email newsletters. you can't fill out any form if you don't know what information is required in each edit box this makes the site not accessable like it or not. I have the latest version of nvda and the latest update of windows 10 app ecentials.

Remember if you raise an issue for nvda about his problem Jamie will probably see it at Mozilla as he is always watching nvda and might be able to advise what is going on at the Mozilla side as well. He is unlikely to see this discussion on this list.

Hi, I am using NVDA latest version and Thunderbird 60.
Now, when I am composing new email and if I have attached files to the email, if I tap after the subject field to read the attachments, NVDA didn't read the file names.
I am not sure if this is a NVDA bug or thunderbird bug.

Hi

Disable the add on then then if nvda speeds up if this is the case it is
most probably the add on

If when you enable the add on again and it slows down then there is the
answer.

Re: accessible sms texting from windows with NVDA

Aman Singer
 

Hi,

All the solutions I mention below are for Windows. The only requirement for a phone is when you want your messages to appear as if they come from your mobile number. That is, if you want to type your messages into your Windows machine and have those messages show up on the recipient's device with your mobile number as the from number, you will need a phone. As I said though, if you don't care about that, any VOIP service that offers SMS will work.

that of your phone, that is, if you don't care about your SMS appearing

Re: accessible sms texting from windows with NVDA

 

Hi. If you use Android, try Android Messages by Google. You'll need to download the app from the Play Store. Once you do, tap the more options button at the top right of the screen. Then, tap the Messages for Web option. Go to https://messages.android.com/ on your computer. Your phone should tell you that you can scan the QR code on the website to start texting from your computer. Press the scan QR code button and then scan the code on your computer screen with your phone. After that, you can send and receive texts on your computer. I hope this helps.

Subject: [nvda] Those with other screenreaders as well problem
 
Now a number of people here use other screenreaders on the same machine,
and normally if one shuts one down and starts another and then goes the
other way, all works fine, however this evening as the old joke goes , a
funny thing happened on the way back to nvda from Jaws.
I always try to keep things up to date of course, and tonight I ran Jaws,
for which I have a licence obtained very cheaply in a sale. This so far has
meant a couple of major updates, but this evening not having run it for
some days, I did yet another update. All seemed to go well and I tested it
and saw no real difference. I then closed it and ran nvda.
What happened next was strange and I have now duplicated it three times.
Nvda could not read the menu you get when you go to shut down the pc with
alt/f4, it could not read the menus of Firefox and many other programs, nor
did it take single key entry to the desktop icons and say for example
Waterfox when I hit w.
The solution to this turned out to be control alt delete and on the
protected desktop picking cancel, whereupon everything was sweetness and
light.
I have to stress that before the Jaws update, nothing like this was the
case. Now I'm not saying that its a deliberate ploy to sabotage nvda, but it
does make me think that Jaws is not leaving windows as it found it, so
please beware. If this happens to you its not nvda playing up, just windows
left in a strange state by Jaws.
Note I am using Windows 7. I notice that Jaws has a major update for Skypes
cock ups, erm improvements sorry..
End of public service announcement.

Goodnight!

Re: NVDA recent snapshots not reading message status in Outlook

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Christo,

Can you please confirm what you mean by status?  Using NVDA 2018.2.1, NVDA 2018.3beta3 or NVDA alpha-15933,b3aff97c as I move through messages in the current version of Outlook 365, NVDA reads "Unread" prior to the sender and subject of messages which are unread (and nothing for read messages).

If a message is "flagged" it reads that information first, and if a message is categorized, it reads that information at the end.

If all of that isn't happening for you, could you perhaps send me a copy of your NVDA log to info@... ideally at debug level.

Kind regards

Quentin.

I have noticed that the NVDA snapshots of the past two months or so no longer read message statuses in Outlook. This is true of Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016 and Outlook in Office 365. Could this be an unpleasant side-effect of the migration to WXPython 4? Can we look forward to this being fixed in the not too distant future. It really was such a helpful feature when NVDA used to announce message statuses.

I still don't understand how you can work out which domain to use just from
knowing the phone number, even if a domain exists for the service provider.

I don't believe that "all cell companies have domains for eMailing to" is
globally true.

For example, can you find a domain for Vodafone UK?

Also, how do you know which provider's domain you need to send the message
to when all you know is the phone number?

accessible using NVDA to do SMS texting from a Windows system? If so
which are accessible and easy to use?


Thanks.

Hi, Glen,

On Saturday one of my sisters gave Mom a little tablet. She can talk into it so she doesn't have to use her hands to text me. The app you suggested sounds great. Would she be able to use it on her tablet?

What I usually do is to use the dictation.
But I did find an app that she could install on her phone, and you can talk, and it puts the words you say into text.
It's called:
Live Caption
You can make the text white on black if that is better, and larger text too.
It's free.

I agree that texting from a cell phone is quite slow. It's so much easier to do it from the computer. I really don't like texting either but in Mom's case, I don't really have a choice. Her hearing is pretty bad but this recent ear infectionmade it worse.

Well, if you have eMail on your phone, you can text people via eMail by sending an eMail message to 10-digit-number@the domain For example, to text to a cell phone on Verizon, you eMail to:
5555555555@vtext.com
All cell companies have domains for eMailing to.

Hi,

If you have an Android device, try Pulse SMS http://www.pulsesms.com/
Its web site works well though, in my experience, the app doesn't.
I know of no way to do this from the iPhone or another phone type, unfortunately. Obviously, if you want to do this from a number other than that of your phone, that is, if you don't care about your SMS appearing from, and replies to those messages going to, a number different from your own phone number, you can use any of the VOIP services.

Those with other screenreaders as well problem

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Now a number of people here use other screenreaders on the same machine, and normally if one shuts one down and starts another and then goes the other way, all works fine, however this evening as the old joke goes , a funny thing happened on the way back to nvda from Jaws.
I always try to keep things up to date of course, and tonight I ran Jaws, for which I have a licence obtained very cheaply in a sale. This so far has meant a couple of major updates, but this evening not having run it for some days, I did yet another update. All seemed to go well and I tested it and saw no real difference. I then closed it and ran nvda.
What happened next was strange and I have now duplicated it three times. Nvda could not read the menu you get when you go to shut down the pc with alt/f4, it could not read the menus of Firefox and many other programs, nor did it take single key entry to the desktop icons and say for example Waterfox when I hit w.
The solution to this turned out to be control alt delete and on the protected desktop picking cancel, whereupon everything was sweetness and light.
I have to stress that before the Jaws update, nothing like this was the case. Now I'm not saying that its a deliberate ploy to sabotage nvda, but it does make me think that Jaws is not leaving windows as it found it, so please beware. If this happens to you its not nvda playing up, just windows left in a strange state by Jaws.
Note I am using Windows 7. I notice that Jaws has a major update for Skypes cock ups, erm improvements sorry..
End of public service announcement.

Goodnight!

Well, I can't tell you for outside the US, but I can't imagine that they don't.
But perhaps it is using another company's towers.
For example, I'm on Selectel, yet I use the Verizon domain.
So it's likely using the domain for who's towers it rides on.

I don't believe that "all cell companies have domains for eMailing to" is globally true.

For example, can you find a domain for Vodafone UK?

Also, how do you know which provider's domain you need to send the message to when all you know is the phone number?

Hi,

If you have an Android device, try Pulse SMS http://www.pulsesms.com/
Its web site works well though, in my experience, the app doesn't.
I know of no way to do this from the iPhone or another phone type, unfortunately. Obviously, if you want to do this from a number other than that of your phone, that is, if you don't care about your SMS appearing from, and replies to those messages going to, a number different from your own phone number, you can use any of the VOIP services. See, just for accessible examples http://www.callcentric.com http://www.les.net HTH, Aman

Hi, I'm pretty sure you can use email to do this if you get the carrier's address right. Here's a link on how to do this.

Basically, you open up your email client and put the number you're sending to in followed by the carriers SMS gateway address.

Hi,


I have been looking into doing this. However, there are so many
choices I am uncertain which to choose.


Has anyone else figured out any of the apps and services that are
accessible using NVDA to do SMS texting from a Windows system? If so
which are accessible and easy to use?


Thanks.
