Actually if you look on the screen brightness thing on ios or android it does bring the brightness all the way down to 0 so yes it does in effect shut off the display. I've seen my batery actually be extended this way.

Hi all,

When it is about switching off / dimming the monitor, I do not understand why it would not save on battery....

The backlight of a monitor in a laptop, tablet, smartphone, ... whatever is one of the main power sinks in such systems.


On a laptop, you can often (this may vary between laptops) use Fn+f7 for switching between different display modes (signal send only to laptop monitor, signal send to external monitor only or signal send to both) or Fn+F5 to dim the backlight and Fn+F6 to light it up.When I am on battery power for a long time, I dim the backlight with Fn+f5 to save battery.

Thus you don't need a NVDA add-on for that, although such add-on may be useful to read the status of the screen (to which monitor is the signal send, on what level is the backlight). I have no clue whether windows has access to such info, let alone it provides an api to request that info (it might be the case that on some laptops this is a pure BIOS feature completely transparent to windows).


Once again, I am not sure what this functionality is supposed to be exactly, and thus I may be speaking about something completely different.


Kind regards,


Didier

If that is what you want then I'd have thought it was possible to do it, kind of like a screensaver that never actually loses focus but then you need to be able to tell nvda that you want it to use the invisible window not the visible one.

In the issues tracker there is a thread on this.

Re: Community advisory/Skype 8 for Desktop (aka Skype Preview): web navigation concepts required, existing nor new Skype app module won't work

 It's trying to actually have me update to the new version, I think this is from the microsoft store so I have no idea what version I'm usign now. I keep saying "not now" and I have the force updates c heck box off so it should not be doing this.  Love the old version I'm using now it's actually quite easy.

Take care

Inaccessible web sites

Rick
 

Hello NVDA community members:

 

Next month, I will be working with human resources in the company that I work for, promoting web accessibility for our internal web-based tools. Initially, I will introduce them to the importance of alt text and keyboard navigation. These are areas they can experience poor behavior without using a screen reader. Please send me links to any web sites that you are aware of that are not navigable  or hard to navigate using the keyboard (or exhibits keyboard lock behavior) and /or sites with no alt text.

 

Thanks in advance and happy holidays.

 

Rick

For what it's worth, I like this idea as far as privacy is conserned. If it isn't intigrated into nvda, then perhaps a member of the community can write an addon/standalone application? Just my thoughts.

Cheers,


Daniel

Monitors normally have one as do most laptops. However to me if its not going to do much for the battery then really all you need is to make it black from anyone hanging around point of view.

People tell me that many folk are very lax, even getting up in a library leaving the sscreen on with their personal data on it.

Recommendations of Win10 + NVDA Apps and Settings?

Kevin Chao
 

It's been  a while since i've used Win10 and  NVDA, so I wanted to tap the wisdom of this group.

In addition to setting the default browser, Cortona hotword/keyboard shortcuts, setting folder views to detailed view, adjusting for performance, etc.

For the best and most accessible experience with Win10 and NVDA, what are the  must get apps and must configure settings?
Thanks!!


Re: OT: selecting a new laptop is more difficult than before

Kevin Chao
 

This thread has been very relevant for me recently, as I was looking for a good business-grade Windows laptop. I tried the LeNovo ThinkPad via Amazon, but sent it back, and picked-up Dell XPS 9360 from Microsoft Store yesterday.

The 2 issues that I experienced are with the Realtek audio and media keys. Fortunately, it was possible to sort the former by turning off the sound effects/enhancements and have latter solved via BIOS set to use standard function keys.

I was unpleasantly surprised that these were issues on a vanilla Windows machine from Microsoft, but glad that it’s possible to set these normally.

This is my second XPS I had, first was in 2009, now again in 2017—very well built, great keyboard, light, fast.

Language community maintainer tutorial

Adriani Botez
 

Dear all,

What are your toughts about a kind of blog which shows how to create and maintain a language community? All existing maintainers could bring their input and we would create a sustainable platform. The topic would be very social oriented, for example inspirations for conducting surveys, provide user support through maillists, groups etc. It would be very important to have as many maintainers as possible who would show how they do it.


Best
Adriani
