Re: Spotify and NVDA

Me too I haven't found an accessible way to add locally-stored music. I'd say like I ended up going, start from scratch. Good luck! and hope you enjoy Spotify! It's amazing all the music you can come up with!

Hi List,


I have recently been using Access 2016 with NVDA and I have had problems.


In table view NVDA cannot read any of the field names when moving from column to column. Also when creating a query, NVDA is unable to report the sort row A for ascending or D for descending, cannot report the criterior row; so unable to create a query without sighted help.


I note that there has not been any work done on NVDA with Access since version 2003 and would like to ask whether or not any update is being considered.


Is there any keystroke in NVDA which would show these missing field names?

I'm sorry, this really shouldn't be here, but typing sudo before every command is *not* necessary.  As I said before, the only time the sudo command is needed is when you're running a system command.  General programs, (which most are), does not require a sudo command.  Sudo is only used when you're configuring the system, or doing something that requires root access, which is generally only when you're changing configuration files, or installing programs to the /usr/bin or /usr/sbin directories.  There are very few reasons to use sudo, and if you're using it before every command, then you're using it incorrectly.

Also, that is not messed up, anytime you type a command in Linux, you need to type sudo in front of it, unless you unlock it with sudo su or sudo –s.

Well, if you have to type sudo before each command, something is seriously messed up with your file permissions, you should be able to write anywhere in your own home directory. Also, telling someone to su into root is just downright dangerous, you could make sweeping changes with one command that could break the entire machine. Sudo is an administrative thing, it elevates your priveleges to do a command, and only that command, think of it like the secure UAC thing in windows, it elevates that program to administrative level until it finishes, like installers. Having programs permanently elevated to administrative level is dangerous, as it leaves the computer open to attack.

Re: How do I run a portable copy of NVDA from a USB flash drive

Richard Wells
 

Maybe I shouldn't, but I have always used NVDA Portable on the root of my USB media. Other than personal preference, is there any reason for me to stop this practice? Thanks and I will appreciate all information on this topic.

That very much depends how you copied it. I think most people prefer not to have nvda in the root of the  ram drive. I would also add here that in Windows 10, the usability of a portable version of nvda is much reduced over using it in Windows 7, mainly due to many parts of windows only being given access to for an installed bit of software. Thus you might consider with the permission of the machines owner installing nvda on the machine but not making it auto start, so at least the next time you  need to use it it has the best access it can.

Re: User Account Control Dialog Not Speaking

Kenny <kwashingtonbox@...>
 

I've noticed since I've installed 1803 that the Windows Narrator reads that screen now. NVDA only informs me that a Secure Window is in focus or something to that affect. Narrator does the rest.


It's like Windows Narrator is a TSR (Terminate and Stay Ready) app now.


To be honest, it seems that JAWS, NVDA, the Ease of Access Center and Narrator are fighting with one another for dominance on my PC, even though I have only NVDA running (Loading automatically at startup.) Very odd happenings occurring since I upgraded to v1803.

I don't know if Braille displays are ever used without screen-readers when connected to computers.  I don't recall seeing discussions where they are used independently.  I doubt it.

Hi, Gene,

 

If the Orbit reader can be used with NVDA, then I apologize.

Hi, Josh,

 

I think this should go on a list like the windows 10 list. It has nothing to do with NVDA.

Re: About Linux

sudo is not necessary for anything in your user space.  The only time sudo is necessary is when you need to change system files.  Otherwise, you shouldn't use sudo, and nobody should use root as their main user account.  I've been using linux since 1992, and I've been doing it with speech, so anyone who claims linux isn't accessible is fooling themselves and others.

This one needs the volume up, as it is hard to hear:

Here’s an article not YouTube, on the accessible Linux distros.

I would put Ubuntu at the top of the list, but it is not at the top of this list.

Since this is a couple of years old, Ubuntu comes with Mate desktop, not Unity as mentioned in this list.

The only thing I don’t like about Vinux and Sonar is that is a bit challenging for a beginner to get Eloquence going on them.

Also, they use older Kernels.

Here’s a little more, in case others are wondering about getting around in Linux…

Glenn

 

I usually set it to laptop mode, and I use the caps-lock with U I O for prior, current, and next line And J K L For words And M comma  and period For letters.

I believe the numberpad works that way too.

Alt F2 is like tapping the windows key in Windows.

Alt + F1 brings up the programs list, there are three columns, system, places, and accessories, which is where you find common programs, like FireFox and eMail programs.

You can use the applications key like you do in Windows too.

Alt + Tab between windows and alt + F4 to close.

Control + alt + D puts you on the desktop.

Just tab around in programs like Windows.

Control + Alt + T

Puts you in the command-line.

Exit gets you out.

You need to type sudo before each command, or to stay in "administrator", type:

Sudo su or sudo -s

Then you will have to exit sudo and exit again to exit terminal.

Hi,

There are many distro’s of Linux that work with Orca the screenreader, so I don’t want to keep this thread going on this list, since it’s off-topic.

But I will mention that I like Ubuntu and that is the most popular distribution in use over all.

I do subscribe to a Ubuntu list, and there is an Orca list as well.

Folks can eMail me off list for help getting started.

And here is some information on the Ubuntu list.

I suspect that if you follow the link to the Ubuntu list and put subscribe in the subject, you might get subscribed.

It is a low-traffic list.

Info below.

Hi


The orbit reader got support around 2016.4 or 2017.1 and can be used with nvda I remember reading it in the whats new section.


Support was in 2016.4 for it or around that time.


From the whats new


• Support for the Orbit Reader 20 braille display. (#6007)


So people who are wishing to buy one of these guys can for nvda at i think 500 US dollars.

Hi, Gene,


I don't think braille displays are used without screen readers. I think a notetaker can be used as a stand-alone device.
