Hi,

It is SPL Assistant layer, followed by D (you need to assign a key to invoke SPL Assistant layer, as it is unassigned by default).

Cheers,

Subject: [nvda] Question About Station Playlist Studio Add-on

 

Hi:

 

In the Station Playlist Studio Add-on, how do inquire the total time of a current playlist?  In Cobra, I could look at the second line from the bottom of the screen and find it as a value there.  But, I can’t seem to do anything like that in NVDA.

 

Thank you.

Navigating between the list with the arrow keys when NVDA + space is pressed in the message list is like navigating the desktop.

NVDA itself can sometimes focus on writing areas.
I was navigating with the letter "b" to get rid of this damn thing.

And you should read the shortcut keys from the website.
There are good things.

navigating the participants list in a zoom meeting with NVDA?

Brian Moore
 

Hi all.  so if you are in or particularly hosting a meeting with 5 or 6 participants, this doesn't seem to be an issue.  However, I was in a meeting today with 48 participants and when I open the participant list to perform some actions on people, NVDA doesn't scrole the list properly.  It seems to be a list box but if I arrow up and down, it only shows me 6 or 7 and doesn't wrap.  I actually think this might be new as I don't remember this being a thing a month or so ago.  Has anyone figured out a good way of making this work?

Re: Torrents in QBitTorrent, or other accessible torrent clients.

I read that QBitorrent is not accessible is that NVDA is having problem in dealing with app build on QT5, like vlc.

Okay. I should be clear, then, that I am referring to Transmission-QT, in which I haven't experienced those issues.

that the only thing that is read in the torrent list is the torrent

can read the download progress.
I run transmission-daemon on my linux box, and transmission-remote-gui on windows The.
The torrent list reads with screen review. However, you must single click on a torrent and use the pgdup/up keys to scroll. No arrow support.

There is more accessible clients like bittorrent and utorrent, but they are not safe like qbittorrent. Those clients had some issues like mining, advertisements etc.

Re: accessing mail headers in Thunderbird

 

One has to have the header area of a message displayed in Thunderbird before it can be traversed by NVDA (or period, for that matter).

ALT+V, H, A shows all of the header in a split window above the message body.

ALT+V, H, N shows the normal (abbreviated) header fields that most people are interested in.

You can't get to what is not on display.  It also has nothing to do with NVDA, really.  It's just a truism.

The reply privately button isn't working on the web interface for some reason. I'll reboot my computer later. Anyway, the below guide will explain what it is in far better detail, but it's basically a more open and decentralized Twitter, connected to the fediverse. It's like a million different twitters all separate, but connected to each other. It's like email, but with social networks. So, if a TW Blue for Mastodon were created, people could use whatever client they wanted to talk to others in another server, AKA, instance. Anyway, read the below. Start at chapter 1.

And I would suggest that anyone with questions regarding any aspect of Windows 10 join the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users group.  It is a far better source, and more active source, of Windows 10 information than our Chat Subgroup ever will be.

But, since this was clearly meant as a user advisory, which I allowed, but has now spun into an ongoing and off-topic discussion, this topic is locked.

You need to be backing up in case anything causes your system to crash.

Perhaps a document should be composed walking newbies through the steps of taking an image backup and restoring it. I personally use active@ diskimage lite to do this. Because you can take a snapshot while the system is running and then restore it from the windows PE. This is the procedure I've been doing for a long time. But I'd be interested to find out how many average computer users know how to do such a thing, or even know it's possible, let alone possible to restore such an image backup with speech. Such a tutorial would greatly benefit the community, I think.

There is a new cumulative update for Windows 10 for Microsoft. I've seen

contradictory things about how many Windows users are having bad effects

from it but especially now, with social contact not desired, I think it’s a

good idea to wait to see if a fix is released before applying this update.

You wouldn't want to have computer problems perhaps requiring service by

someone coming to your house or you going somewhere.



It is cumulative update KB4549951.



If you do a search for this update, you will see articles about it including

Kim Komando, Windows Next, and Bleeping Computer.



I might not have sent a message under normal conditions but these aren't

No.  Period.

I don't know how many times it is going to take to convince people that there will, always, be outlier systems that crash and burn subsequent to any given update.  It simply happens.

The reports I've read (and I am with Sarah on Kim Komando, she and the tech writer for Forbes are both well-known overreactors to anything Microsoft-related) all indicate, as Joseph Lee has mentioned, that the issues are on a tiny subset of computers.

The dangers of blocking updates so hugely outweigh allowing them to be applied that this should never be considered.  Also, any computer owner who is not taking routine full system image backups, and this has been true for decades now, is playing Russian roulette.  You need to be backing up in case anything causes your system to crash.

Hi,

No, please don’t turn off automatic updates for Windows unless you are sure what you are doing. Again these issues affect a small number of users and it is configuration dependent.

Hi,
There is a newer update, but don't count on that fixing reported problems yet as that one is an optional update. Not all users are experiencing these, and these are configuration dependent.
