Hello, Mr. Patak and other,

This I had to check.

Hallo in the list,

go to page edge://settings/languages. Add Czech language, then you can set Czech as a preferred language to display Edge in it. Cannot say exactly how all elements are named, I have Edge in Czech language.

Re: Reader mode in Chrome?

 

but i wish to use the version that has most of features that i need.
firefox 50 has the shortcut for reader mode which was not present in
its previous versions.
firefox since 45 has container which i can use my gmail accounts at
the same time which is very important for me and these features were
one of my dreams and i thanks God and thank firefox developers that
provided for me my dreams!
i am very glad that newer versions that dont support my windows and my
hardware, dont have any essential and important feature that i cant
without them!

However, if the issue you mentioned is breaking your ability to use the
tool, and Mozilla changes how it handles files... well, its not like it
will ever be rolled out to previous versions of Firefox. You might just
have to find another option. If you can get Firefox updated at least to
version 57, you might try the Browsh addon/browser, which apparently allows
Firefox to serve as the backend of an entirely text-based browser (
https://www.brow.sh/).

incidentally, since you haven't updated your browser for that long you may
want to basically assume that it has been hacked, and that all data and web
traffic through your PC is being monitored. A good web browser is like the
skin of your computer - really good at preventing infections, but only if
it remains unbroken. Firewall is the protective gear you wear like gloves
and masks, and antivirus software is like your immune system. You can even
use a rescue disc as if it were antibiotics for a severe infection... but
viruses and hacks both are constantly evolving ways to penetrate and
survive past these defenses.

the Switch program from nch software does indeed produce text from a

Don't know if this is available in the unpaid version. However it

certainly exists in the paid for version.

The facility is offered when the initial sound file is opened. The

choice is made from the out options (i.e. various formats including

How many unread items in a mailbox

Clive Lever
 

Hello all,

 

Under Windows 10 and within outlook, if I’m using Jaws ad I’m displaying the name of one of a list of folders, it may say something like: “Inbox – 10 unread items”. Is there a way to get NVDA to say that? I find it immensely useful when spring-cleaning folders, particularly the inbox.

 

Thanks,

Clive

 

 

Re: I'm having problems when i use nvda together with nativeaccess.

 

hi.
i did not heard of this program until now.
is it accessible with screen readers?
if it be accessible, nvda and any other screen reader should support it.

command. I'm using the latest version of windows 10 The newer version of
nvda has not been released yet. Not to mention, that i'm unable to find the

tried to activate the different buttons using the insert+2 on the numpad but
nothing happens. Also I thaught that if I use insert+enter on the numpad
that would activate the buttons but nothing happens. Is there something
else that I could be missing in terms of these commands. I can be reached
at dingram269@.... I've also downloaded the remote access tool
for nvda just in case someone wanted to remote into my computer to take a
look at how nvda works together with nativeaccess. I'm trying to see if
nvaccess.org would be able to assist in helping to correctany problems that
i'm having when I use nvda together with nativeaccess. Thank you for any
information that you might have as to how I can solve these problems.

Are you signed into Audible through iTunes? Maybe that's enough. I believed that you needed one of those to be installed.

Hi

If people must remove DRM from books. Try googleing inaudible. It does the same thing but the setup is completely accessible. You also don't need to log in with your audible account. You just need the official Audible Manager installed.

The information was not posted here but on the British Computer Association of the Blind. I thought I had saved the information but cannot presently find it.
I have asked on BCAB if somebody could repost the necessary keystrokes. Hopefully somebody will respond.

I will have a look and post if I find the instructions.

Hi!

I received an email from a friend telling me to try open audible,
but as this friend has some sight, I have no idea if this is accessible with NVDA.

I have tried to use this program with jaws, but to no avail.

Can someone tell me if this is accessible with NVDA and how to use it?

No, I've never used Open Audible. but, a bit of a shameless plug, Libro.FM allows you to buy DRM free, downloadable audiobooks, and gives you the option to support your local independent bookstore if desired. The team listened very closely to my feedback with NVDA and on mobile apps. I did the best I could without having an Android device, but they just released an IOS update that addresses a ton of VoiceOver navigational quirks. I consulted using NVDA but the site should work with JAWS. They loved my feedback so much they said, explicitly, they will hire me again when they have the budget to pay me again and to do a big batch of accessibility work, which is certainly on the roadmap. Gotta say, they payed me on time, and payed me via direct deposit, which was nice. They really want to adopt a culture of accessibility, even if it takes time to do so. My affiliate link is below. If you don't want a membership, buy any audiobook without the membership and the affiliate link will still work.

Re: Reader mode in Chrome?

You can't save the page in reader mode.  But if you save the page using single page, you may be able to open the saved page in your browser and read it in reader mode.  I haven't tried it but it probably will work.

What is the page being referred to? it could be that the site has some kind of JavaScript interfering with the save protocol. Can your offline reading program read text from PDFs, because if so some kind of print-to-pdf function might be a useful workaround for this site specifically.

is there a captcha program for nvda users or jaws users? or a pc AddOn

The audio CAPTCHA is clear with headphones and will
