What Time zone are you at? I’m pacific. Eastern is 3 hours ahead of me. So 7 eastern is 4 my time.  If you are central it will be one hour ahead of you. Mountain time would be  2 hours ahead. I could be lying.

Re: Copy value from foreground window

Chris Mullins
 

Hi

Zara’s suggestion copies the title of the foreground window to the clipboard and if there is information in the body of the foreground window that you need access to, you could try the Virtual review add-on.  This allows you to use NVDA+control+w to virtualize the current window into text form, which you can then edit and copy information to the clipboard.

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi,

I have tried to press Alt+Tab or onli Alt, but nothing worked. Therefore I uninstalled and installed Nvda again.

Dne 11.06.2020 v 23:16 David Goldfield napsal(a):

I have occasionally encountered this problem and not just with NVDA as the screen reader. The alt-tab solution will certainly work. However, what usually works for me is to press the alt key twice. The first press will move focus to the ribbon and the second press returns focus to the document window and speech should behave as expected. The bottom line is that you want to move focus away from and then back to the document window. Alt-tab certainly does this but pressing either the alt or the Windows key twice will do the same thing and may be a tad easier and quicker.

Re: Image describer addon download link is showing error

 

By the way, I e-mailed the developer not too long after posting my reply.  It's been dead silence.  My presumption is that the project has been abandoned.  If I get a very late reply indicating otherwise I'll follow-up.

Re: Image describer addon download link is showing error

William Wong
 

Thanks brian.

See my message from last year:  https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/message/60898 


I would contact the developer of the add-on.  If you look at the actual error message content, whether via the add-ons community link or his own website, it indicates that things are inaccessible because his bill has not been paid.  He may, or may not, be aware of this.  I'd bet on "may," but it's possible it's just something that slipped through the cracks that he'd forgotten about.

I tried using the spacebar and the enter key on the link and nothing.

I decided to try the register link just below the login link and it works

If you press NVDA+N, then T, there is an option there in the Tools menu called "Run COM Registration fixing tool". That can help in some situations. Usually it's more when everything reports "unknown" but it could be worth a try here.

Otherwise, could you have any add-ons in Microsoft Office which might be stealing focus to an invisible window on startup? I know DropBox was doing that at one point. Some Anti-Virus programs have in the past as well.
