Their sure is on the add-ons page. It works without it though. It’s a great add-on.

Winamp works fine with nvda by itself but there is an add on for it that helps you find total time and time remaining and a few other things with a few hotkeys.  It can also turn the volume up and down and even mute with ta key press so I like to use it.

Re: Three cases when NVDA does not read windows objects

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

You don't say if there are other computers running the same exact configuration which have not got these issues. I'm assuming you are saying that the old and new both have the issue. Is there any other software common to both which might make your set up unique?



I think you really need to talk to one of the developers to see where to look. the result of an nvda/f1 when one of the problems occurs might be a start. Also do you have a mouse or mouse pad active, could be worth turning them off just to see if its something to do with mouse movement. Brian

Subject: [nvda] Three cases when NVDA does not read windows objects


Hello,

There are three problems I am having with NVDA not reading window
information:


I don’t know if this is a Windows problem or NVDA problem, but NVDA is only
reading 1 window when I press alt+tab several times. I press alt+tab and
NVDA does not say anything. Sometimes a restart of NVDA works, but not
always. It just started doing this last month.



Also, in the last month, NVDA has started not to read the folder View in
Windows explorer for some reason. I open up my documents or downloads and
NVDA just says Explorer”. I can tab and get to the Tree view and other
buttons, but the folder view is completely silent. I have turned off
indexing and other things that may slow down Windows Explorer, but nothing
seems to work. I have the same problems in the open and save dialogues in
applications as well. The folder View does not work or freezes. I know
something is there, because if I hit enter in the blank space, the folder
or file opens. Also, they are there visually. Often when I restart NVDA,
the folder view will read right as NVDA is turning off,, then for a very
short time while NVDA is just restarted. But very quickly, the folder view
becomes silent again.



NVDA also does not always enter the start menu focus when the Windows key
is pressed. For example, when typing this email, I press start and NVDA
does not say anything. I see the start menu pop up, but pressing arrow keys
don’t do anything. If I am in an editable window, I can type and the search
box in the start menu will populate, but if I am in a brows window, then
NVDA thinks I am pressing navigation keys and jumps me around the page I
was on.



These problems all happen at random times and I can’t figure out what
triggers them. They happen enough that they are really hurting my
productivity at work and I purchased another computer just because these
problems were so pervasive.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix these three problems?

Thank you,


Brandon Keith Biggs <http://brandonkeithbiggs.com/>;


Re: explanation

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

Tell us the site, often they have a different link to download to the play one.
There could be many reasons apart from copyright, it may well be that the files are not in the same place all the time and the html inteermediary page then redirects the user to the right place. Examining some of these downloaded small html files can give a clue to where the file actually is stored but not always.

Some sites actively prohibit downloading of their content. I've noticed this for copyright material, where you can listen but not store locally. there are of course ways around many of these but I'd be a bit worried about mentioning any here except the obvious one of virtunual recorder.

Some sites won't let you save the file using save target as. Save target as is described by some people as the way to save everything. It's not. You are saving the actual link, the way that site is organized. Press enter on the play link and let it start to play in whatever browser you are using, if you are using Firefox or Chrome. Then, when play begins, use the command control s to open a save dialog. Use that dialog to save the audio file. I'm not sure that will work in Internet Explorer but if you are using Internet Explorer, I think it will either open the save dialog or it will open Windows Media Player or some other program. You can tell us what happens and we might be able to tell you how to save the file from the player.

After going to the page you will need to jump down by headings to the VLC media player tutorial.

There is an add-on for it. That will help quite a bit with usage.

I’ve never used it with this Chromecast. I use it to play videos, for which it’s excellent. No tutorials that I know of. My experience with the program? It’s very powerful and versatile, but sometimes things are non-intuitive, and certain things, like the advanced preferences dialog screen, don’t always play so nicely with screen-readers. It is however possible to change the VLC interface. I don’t know if there are any specific interface alterations available that work better with NVDA. I’d certainly be interested to find out. For now, I’ve *mostly* gotten the program to do everything I want it to do. The hardest thing, strangely enough, has been to save my own equalizer settings for movies, but I think I finally got that covered.

Davy,

On the below page you will find a link to an nvda driver. Search on the
page for nvda. I am not sure how to install it in nvda, but maybe you
will know it.

Betreff: [nvda] Three cases when NVDA does not read windows objects

 

Hello,

There are three problems I am having with NVDA not reading window information:

 

I don’t know if this is a Windows problem or NVDA problem, but NVDA is only reading 1 window when I press alt+tab several times. I press alt+tab and NVDA does not say anything. Sometimes a restart of NVDA works, but not always. It just started doing this last month.

 

Also, in the last month, NVDA has started not to read the folder View in Windows explorer for some reason. I open up my documents or downloads and NVDA just says Explorer”. I can tab and get to the Tree view and other buttons, but the folder view is completely silent. I have turned off indexing and other things that may slow down Windows Explorer, but nothing seems to work. I have the same problems in the open and save dialogues in applications as well. The folder View does not work or freezes. I know something is there, because if I hit enter in the blank space, the folder or file opens. Also, they are there visually. Often when I restart NVDA, the folder view will read right as NVDA is turning off,, then for a very short time while NVDA is just restarted. But very quickly, the folder view becomes silent again.

 

NVDA also does not always enter the start menu focus when the Windows key is pressed. For example, when typing this email, I press start and NVDA does not say anything. I see the start menu pop up, but pressing arrow keys don’t do anything. If I am in an editable window, I can type and the search box in the start menu will populate, but if I am in a brows window, then NVDA thinks I am pressing navigation keys and jumps me around the page I was on.

 

These problems all happen at random times and I can’t figure out what triggers them. They happen enough that they are really hurting my productivity at work and I purchased another computer just because these problems were so pervasive.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix these three problems?

Thank you,

Some sites won't let you save the file using save target as.  Save target as is described by some people as the way to save everything.  It's not.  You are saving the actual link, the way that site is organized.  Press enter on the play link and let it start to play in whatever browser you are using, if you are using Firefox or Chrome.  Then, when play begins, use the command control s to open a save dialog.  Use that dialog to save the audio file.  I'm not sure that will work in Internet Explorer but if you are using Internet Explorer, I think it will either open the save dialog or it will open Windows Media Player or some other program.  You can tell us what happens and we might be able to tell you how to save the file from the player.
