super logical, but they're there, at least.

The audio quality is quite good. I’ve had a couple of moments of
distortion and break-up, but that could just be my internet

Re: A strange problem with excel2016

Rick
 

Hello Abdul:

 

I assume that you are running the native client of Excel 2016 and not the web version. Is your version up to date and not an Office Insider build? You can check for updates in the file menu. Press ALT+F, D, R and tab around the opened menu to the link to check for updates.

 

What do you mean by getting stuck? There are several ways to end editing in one cell and moving to the next (Tab key, Enter key and arrow keys). You need to make sure browse mode is off in order to edit cells (NVDA+Spacebar will toggle browse mode on and off).

Re: usable torrent client recommendations?

Hey John.

Wow, I think this did the trick. The first screen of flags was no problem, but they really did hide that second screen well. You were right, accessing preferences normally from the keyboard does not seem to work to bring up this screen. Interesting. Now all ads are gone though. Sweet. Thanks.

You can also remove the ads, though there's a survey thing that still shows up for me. Other than that, it works like it used to. See here.


http://bitsnapper.com/disable-ads-from-utorrent/


Note when it says clicking on preferences while holding whatever-F2, I'm pretty sure you have to literally click with a mouse. I'm pretty sure I routed the mouse with NVDA-numpad slash to the preferences menu, then did the weird combo with my mouse, actually a trackball but still. You might need sighted help with that, I almost did that but messed with it and got it to work, but it was a while ago so I might be wrong about what I did to make it happen.

Hello everyone.

I have been using Utorrent, or Mu-torrent, as it is sometimes called.
I ended up with some build of 3.5 on this Windows 10 machine. It is
not totally unusable, but the ads have a tendency to get stuck and
crash the program. It also causes firefox to crash on a semi-regular
basis. I was even willing to “upgrade to pro”, to get rid of the ads,
but clicking on the link takes me to some silly games page, and while
I’m sure it’s possible to get to the correct page from there, I got
this inexplicable impression that the developers did not actually want
me to upgrade the software at all, since they make the path so
cryptic. In short, I think I would feel more comfortable with a
different client altogether. Of course, I am looking for one that is
very configurable and which plays nice with NVDA. Have you fine folks
any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Hi, Gene,

 

I was talking about people who resist change. I do understand that in some cases, change might not be good. For instance, I did try the Walmart site but found it very hard to work with. I tried it with object navigation and couldn't get it to work. I called the people in charge and they really weren't too helpful. I should have made myself clearer by saying that I was talking about people who don't want to try to learn new things.

How do you adapt to change if a program becomes inaccessible or largely so, and you can't use other methods, such as object navigation to access it?  That has been happening increasingly frequently.   Your faith in writing to developers is by no means going to accomplish anything.  Of course people should write to developers.  Don't you think that if it were more effective than on a hit and miss basis, that a lot of programs that are now inaccessible wouldn't be? 

 

You said we all must adapt to change.  What does that mean and under what circumstances should or must we adapt?  these are broad unexplained and undefined statements. 

 

If something someone uses meets their needs, then they don't have to change anything.  If someone has nees that aren't being met, then, if they want to meet those needs, they have to adapt to change if useable or accessible programs or operating systems are available. 

 

A lot of blind people receive poor instruction in Windows and in Windows programs.  They learn by rote so that changes that could be either easily or rather easily accomodated by others who are well taught are major problems for them.

Hi,

 

Maybe what I said is a bit harsh but I can understand why some people can't change. Maybe for financial reasons they're not able to upgrade to windows 7 or 10 and I do get it. As far as people who are afraid of change, no, that doesn't make them less valuable than the rest of us. All I'm getting at is that one should write to a developer whether it's microsoft or some other company about trying to make something more accessible. I realize change can be hard but we do have to eventually adapt to it. I didn't mean to come off as being harsh.

Hi!

Wow, makes me feel glad to be working in an environment where nobody gets fired right on the spot for voicing a valid complaint.

What makes you assume that someone pointing out accessibility flaws doesn't have a life? That's a pretty generalizing statement from my standpoint, and I'd love to understand the underlying logic before dismissing it as simplistic and/or impolite.

Also, is it valid at this point to assume that if someone is afraid of losing access to something, they are automatically afraid of change in general? I don't see how that follows. Even if someone were afraid of change, would that disqualify them as a valuable human being?

Finally, you mention the paradigm of shaping up or shipping out. Let's say some software gets replaced and the new version has serious accessibility flaws making it impossible for someone to be as productive as before, what exactly would shaping up consist of?

Looking forward to some fruitful discourse.
Best regards,

Felix

You're darn right that no employer would put up with whining and complaining from any employee whether blind or sighted. They'd be fired right on the spot!

we, blind or not, have to get used to change, whether we like it or not.

if we had a job, and they upgraded there systems, do you think whining and complaining would get you anywhere?

no, it would get you fired.

Clare I’ll have to break it to you gently as a good favorite country song of mine is called. You are going to have to upgrade to WIN 10 32 or 64 bit in the future. I don’t think its cute that other blind people etc. are putting up Skype V 7.x on Dropbox etc. Folks get a life and get a grip. This version of Skype will die and you must move forward like or lump it. Yeah MS didn’t ask us about how we feel about this and they never will. And for the record this tread is getting old like sour milk. So with that being said put up or shut up and send feedback to MS to make the current iderations of Skype on all platforms accessible. Peace out and I’m done. Grow up folks!

Hi!
I've been reading this thread about the phasing out of Skype 7, which is already getting quite long, with interest, as I've been using Skype for nearly ten year snow, and I don't want to give up on it if I don't absolutely have to.
As I write this, Skype 7.40 still works on my 64-bit Windows 7 PC, but, judging from what I've read lately, it is hard to guess how much longer Skype 7 will still exist. Some people say Skype 7's days are numbered, others say there has been a glitch which caused problems with Skype 7 and made it impossible for some of its users to log in for a while, but I'm not totally sure which to believe: both might be true, for all I know.
It's great that there are accessible alternatives to Skype out there, and that Windows 10 users also have the option of using Skype UWP, the Skype version from the Windows Store. But what will the rest of us NVDA users do, those who don't have Windows 10 and want to stick with Skype for whatever reason, when Skype 7 no longer works? That is bound to happen one day.
I'm sad to say I have not yet heard any word from the NVDA developers about any work on Skype 8 to make it more accessible with NVDA in the future. Will future versions of NVDA support Skype 8 without the need for add-ons, or is there the possibility of an add-on being produced for Skype 8 to help us until the stable version of NVDA fully supports the new Skype for desktop?
If there are any developers reading this who can answer the above questions, or tell us anything else about the current situation where Skype 8 and NVDA are concerned, I'm sure I am not the only one who would be happy to hear from them on this list.
Thanks in advance for any answers to my questions, whatever they say.
Bye for now!

Re: Phasing out of 7

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

No, I haven't. The only time I used skype after 2011 or so was at my old
work. I found the experience irritating but manageable, and don't really
have a desire to return to it. From what I remember, the Zoom keyboard
commands are better and more intuitive, and can perform more functions. But
I'm not really advocating the use of Zoom over Skype, merely elucidating my
own experience with the former.

Have you checked the article posted about skype that started this whole
thread? There are keyboard commands in the new skype, they might not be
super logical, but they're there, at least.

Re: usable torrent client recommendations?

John Isige
 

You can also remove the ads, though there's a survey thing that still
shows up for me. Other than that, it works like it used to. See here.


http://bitsnapper.com/disable-ads-from-utorrent/


Note when it says clicking on preferences while holding whatever-F2, I'm
pretty sure you have to literally click with a mouse. I'm pretty sure I
routed the mouse with NVDA-numpad slash to the preferences menu, then
did the weird combo with my mouse, actually a trackball but still. You
might need sighted help with that, I almost did that but messed with it
and got it to work, but it was a while ago so I might be wrong about
what I did to make it happen.

Hello everyone.

I have been using Utorrent, or Mu-torrent, as it is sometimes called.
I ended up with some build of 3.5 on this Windows 10 machine. It is
not totally unusable, but the ads have a tendency to get stuck and
crash the program. It also causes firefox to crash on a semi-regular
basis. I was even willing to “upgrade to pro”, to get rid of the ads,
but clicking on the link takes me to some silly games page, and while
I’m sure it’s possible to get to the correct page from there, I got
this inexplicable impression that the developers did not actually want
me to upgrade the software at all, since they make the path so
cryptic. In short, I think I would feel more comfortable with a
different client altogether. Of course, I am looking for one that is
very configurable and which plays nice with NVDA. Have you fine folks
any suggestions? Thanks in advance.


Re: usable torrent client recommendations?

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

Thanks, Chris. I did used to have a much better time with uTorrent when I was using XP. Can’t remember what version I had then, but it had no ads and almost never crashed. So, if noone else has any ideas, I guess I will just take the version downgrade. I know there are a lot of other clients out there but I don’t really want to waste too much time fiddling around trying to find one I like and which is properly accessible.

Hi.

Yeah we can no longer get skype classic anymore people have put it out
on dropbox, technically you can still get it if you have a tablet but still.

Someone needs to tell microsoft that skype 8 is not really that
accessible, and as well as that maybe the classic desktop interface at
least some of it should become part of the skype app.

For now, skyprivate seems to have the file.

http://download.skyprivate.com/skype/win/SkypeSetupFull.exe

The article I got from it was updated on the 15th and explains how to
get skype going and I found it with skype classic on google search.

I am going to have to backup my skype classic to my dropbox though its a
real shame ms is killing skype for its users now.

I still use it off and on if skype is becomming inaccessible, well that
will become a problem.

I used it to help family members get a job, if it goes away I will have
to say I can no longer help anymore.

I think that JM is talking about Zoom, and audio quality with that program.

I beg to differ. The audio is crap! It was a lot better when Skype 6 and older was around.

The audio quality is quite good. I’ve had a couple of moments of distortion and break-up, but that could just be my internet connection. The screen-sharing feature also lets you share your computer’s audio output, which is kind of neat.

Zoom is accessible, as far as the interface goes. NVDA is missing something that enables it to speak messages, such as someone shares their screen, or someone left a room, or someone typed a message and what the message was. Narrator does this, however.

 

You can have meetings with two people, and you can speak with voice for free and time is unlimited. If you have more than 2 people in a meeting, your time is limited to 40 minutes. If you were to pay for a pro license, everything is unlimited.

 

I use the program regularly. They cover iPhone, Android, Windows, and Linux.
