Betreff: [nvda] Video editing

 

Hi everyone,

 

I've been asked by someone about accessible video editing software.  I'm not overly familiar with video editing at all, so wonder if anyone is able to recommend any video editing software please?

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Hi,

The Eurobraille family, correct? NVDA will gain support for them in 2018.1.

Hi. The only way I know of  is the control key unless I'm just
shutting my laptop off then I c have the hotkey set for Cortana so
just shut off all screen readers, bring up Cortana with the hotkey and
have it  shut down that way.

Re: Using VLC media player with NVDA

 

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

Re: explanation

Jonathan COHN
 

What happens if you just click on the link that you are attempting to download? Perhaps it is a show notes page that then has a link to the multi-media file. Another possibility is that the link you aare clicking on starts a HTML5 player for the podcast.

 

Usually in the case of an HTML5 player there will also be a download link.

Re: [ChoicescriptIDE/main] Updates (and other notifications) are screen-reader friendly (#40)

 

Yes Choice script, as in choice of games. I wrote the developer ages ago asking if he could look into screen reader access. At the moment I am only testing with NVDA. I'm a Choice of games writer though not a programmer so if anyone has any ideas he would love feedback directly. Either on the thread or similar.

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,

I wan to silence NVDA while Cortana speaks in Windows 10?  Are there ways to do this other than clicking the CTRL key?

Re: [ChoicescriptIDE/main] Updates (and other notifications) are screen-reader friendly (#40)

 

I was hoping some developers had ideas. The below thread is talking about agressive, assertive, screen reader notifications, or passive notifications. The below is the thread link. The developer really wants to make this program accessible. Comments in the thread would be very helpful when developing!

Re: How to silence NVDA when Cortana speaks?

 

I've never really tried cortana yet.

I do admin a lot of systems and most of it is keeping ms away from my data and keeping cortana silent.

If I get my system I am unsure how usefull cortana is to me.

If I put it back on, I will have to send all my data to microsoft, and all the extra spying crazyness which I don't mind but if it becomes a bother at all then I don't know.

I’m going to try to figure out collections in Cortana again.
Not that I have anything important to save but you never know when it will come in handy and it never hurts to learn new things.

I use Cortana for directions, scores to all ball games, weather in many places around the world, and also time around the world, and that is just a start LOL!
Cortana is not quite as smart as SIRI, but they are beginning to run neck and neck LOL!
Personal assistants are my favorite toys LOL!
If you guys would like, I have an entire list of Cortana commands and questions for her LOL!
