Facebook unhappiness

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi all,

I'm unhappy ... I'm having problems with my smiley faces! I'll use my FB post about it and include a bit of NVDA related info into it.

Giles Turnbull is feeling unhappy.
who am I unhappy with? Facebook, of course! I've noticed that when I type a smiley face with a colon and a right parenthesis, Facebook has started stripping that out of my post or comment. It'd be fine if it was doing some techno jiggery pokery and turning it into a propper emoji but,as far as I can tell, it isn't!
Sod's law says as I try to prove the point by doing it here it'll not vanish ... but normally I'll type a word followd by a space, followed by the colon and then the right parenthesis, and as I'm typing it NVDA tells me there is a colon and a right paren (or if I'm using say all it'll say "smiley face" since I've added that into the dictionary) ... but as soon as it posts NVDA reads the word and then a single space and that's it.

My sighted friends tell me that indeed there is a smiling face so FB IS converting it, but why does my NVDA not identify that there is a graphic or even one of those characters that are silent but you know they are there (like accented characters)?

Here's the transcript from the speech viewer reading the FB post:

Sod's law says as I try to prove the point by doing it here it'll not vanish ... but normally I'll have the space before where my colon would be, then a space where the colon should be and then the next word ...
Can anyone confirm whether there is a ascii smiley face, or a pictorial smiley face, as the last thing in this post?

Issue with drafts in Thunderbird.

John Isige
 

Hey all. Ran into something to day for the first time, I don't generally save drafts. I haven't tested to see if this happens with shorter drafts, but I wrote a somewhat longish email, it was an assignment so it had thirty fairly short lines followed by some paragraphs. When I started writing the longer stuff today for the last few questions, using the up and down arrows to read lines or say all wouldn't read some of it toward the end. Up and down arrows would produce blank lines, and say all would get to a point and read stuff like "it has three n", where there were a few more sentences after the 'n' it ended with. In case it matters, the draft was formatted like so:


stuff

more stuff

yet more stuff

1. A thingy.

2. another thingy.

30. Last short thingy.


31. A few sentences.


32. A few more sentences.


35. Last sentences.


Maybe the blank lines separating 30 and 31 onward confused it, I did up to 30 the other day and worked on 31-35 today. Anybody know of I way to fix this? It would really be useful to read drafts like any other email I'm composing so I can edit them properly. I guess I could just write things up outside of Thunderbird and not use drafts, but the functionality is there, so it seems a shame not to use it. I should add that moving by words, for instance, read things properly, so did backspacing. This is with latest everything, NVDA 2018.1.1, Windows 10 1709, Thunderbird 52.7.0 32-bit, do they make 64-bit Thunderbird? I wouldn't think that would matter but I am running 64-bit Windows, just in case it does.


setting newsfeeds in Facebook to show differently

Dan Beaver
 

HI,


I am posting in both lists so maybe someone can tell me how to do this in either environment.


I want to make my Facebook show me newsfeed posts in order of their posting rather than in a seemingly random order.  How can I do this in a browser using NVDA or else on my Iphone 6 using the Facebook app?  I do not care which I use to do this but sure would appreciate learning how to do it.


I have been told my my daughter that there is a setting for this but I can't find it in either environment.  She isn't around locally to help me figure it out.


Thanks.

Tables On ESPN Major League Baseball League Standings No Longer Work As They Did In Earlier Versions Of NVDA

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,


I am using NVDA 2018.1.1 Windows 10, Firefox browser, Edge Browser for this issue.


If you visit http://www.espn.com/mlb/standings the normal table navigation keystrokes such as alt + control + up/down/left/right arrow keys render no movement and no information.  I cannot move to the columns to the left or right and can only move up and down from team name to team name.


Unless this is a recent change in the ESPN website, I think this may be due to the recent upgrade of NVDA.  I say this because last year, with NVDA 2017.4, I did not experience this issue.

They Ask Me If I'm Happy; I say Yes.
They ask: "How Happy are You?"
I Say: "I'm as happy as a stow away chimpanzee on a banana boat!"

Re: Firefox ad blocker and nvda and filehippo

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

Oh you can download, its just their scan of your machin4e to see which items have a new version that caused the issue. filehippo have a header on the bit of the page that contains the items it thinks you need to update that says, advertisement.
One assumes this is supplied via a third party server. It does not stop them scanning your machine should you allow it, but it does stop you seeing the results if the ad blocker is on. My question is how do you using nvda, set up the page as a white list item to allow the advert.

Right the folk at File hippo have stopped me using the update checker unless

don't see it if its switched on. So at the moment I need to.
1 invoke the update check
2 when the page has loaded, go to add ons and turn off ublock.
3 come back to the results page and refresh it

Then do this in reverse to be able to browse without claptrap annoying me.

I notice there is a white list function in the ublock add on, but using
nvda, I cannot seem to get it to work on the file hippo page I need to turn
it off for. Am I missing something?

You do options, dashboard settings and get a list and at the bottom add
either the address or part of it from the page you want, then hit the button
to add it. The button is above the field but that is just their design.
so what am I missing? Is nvda not letting me see some vital bit?

Out of curiosity have you got mouse tracking turned on and the mouse is
some where on the screen ? If it is turned on turn it off with the nvda

when reading a email it will change the focus to what is under the mouse
Are you using a lap top there may be a touch screen at the bottom of the

If that is the case and you do not use it on some you can turn it off or

Re: Urgently need help about Word 2010

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Prem,

 

I would recommend that you open the word file that you have received from your adviser and immediately save it to your working folder. The original file will still be open, so save it as the original file name with the word working in the file name to distinguish it as your working version. Save this in the same folder as the original.

 

In your working version, you can make whatever changes you need to correct the text in line with the advice that your adviser has given you.

 

NVDA works well with Styles in Word and you can list all the styles that are available by pressing control+shift+s. This opens the styles menu. You may need to study how to use different styles so that you can take full advantage of this dialog.

 

Once you have your working copy of the original file open for editing, you can then open the original copy that I referred to above. Open this in a separate session of Word. Do this by going to the file name in the folder where you have stored it and pressing enter on it. This will open the file in its own session of Word. Now, you will have the two copies open on your computer but in separate windows. You can switch back and forth between them using alt+tab. That way, you can see what the original advice was even though your changes have removed them from your working copy.

 

I hope this advice is of help to you. Please feel free to contact me privately if you need any further assistance to get going. My email address is set out below my signature.

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

OT: windows 10 sound theme specification

coffeekingms@hotmail.com
 

Hi all

My wife mellisa wants me to make a sound theme out of sounds from our Chihuahua pikinese mix. I’ve already done this for Linux, since I know the Linux sound theme specs rather well. But I can’t find a specification for windows own sound themes. I’ve downloaded a couple and looked at the sounds, but the names are always different so I’m not even sure if there is a spec. If there isn’t, can anyone help me make a sound theme that will contain the sounds? I can send the sounds to people off list compressed if needed, but a spec would be easiest, since I wouldn’t have to send sounds, and wait for a response. She wants windows 10 sounds to play tigger’s own sounds instead of the default windows ones, which is proving difficult. Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Re: announcing end of lines in Scite editor

Jonathan COHN
 

What Gene and I were working on, is that often times NVDA will say blank for a character it has not been trained to recognize. In these cases if you click numpad 2 three times, NVDA will speak the underlying code associated with that character. 

 

So please enter the program, move to where NVDA says blank and then hit the number 2 three times, if you do this correctly NVDA should say something like 1392 provide that code back to the list. Then we may be able to help you. When Gene attempted to get this code though, it didn’t seem to work so in that case you might have to just live with knowning that blank might be a new line or a Chinese character. (LOL)

Have a great weekend,

Ok, i have to better specify this think.

Almost everythink is ok in Scite with nvda.

Only when you moving with right arrow cross end of line, nvda says Blank instead of New line.

So this behaviour is dependend only on colors combination in Scite symbol for new line i think.

 

 

 

Dne 06.04.2018 v 19:17 Gene napsal(a):

I don't have the technical knowledge to explain the different information you get and in what order without taking notes and transcribing the information NVDA provides.  I'll say that, if you turn input help on, then press numpad 2, you will hear a description of what happens when you press that key once, twice, or three times quickly.  You just have to press it once when input help is on and all three descriptions will be given.  Pressing the key three times gives you codes for the character you are on when you press that key.  It doesn't matter how you are reviewing the screen.  Any character that you are on will be described.

 

I'm giving desktop layout commands for input help and the current character command.  I don't use the laptop layout.

Would it be possible to use review cursor's Say Character and see what the UNICODE is that is being spoken as "blank" and then add it to a dictionary as a different expression? I haven't played with NVDA enough to know. Or perhaps even just the regular expression .$ could be used in a dictionary?

Re: announcing end of lines in Scite editor

Jiří Fenz <jirifenz@...>
 

Ok, i have to better specify this think.

Almost everythink is ok in Scite with nvda.

Only when you moving with right arrow cross end of line, nvda says Blank instead of New line.

So this behaviour is dependend only on colors combination in Scite symbol for new line i think.




Dne 06.04.2018 v 19:17 Gene napsal(a):

I don't have the technical knowledge to explain the different information you get and in what order without taking notes and transcribing the information NVDA provides.  I'll say that, if you turn input help on, then press numpad 2, you will hear a description of what happens when you press that key once, twice, or three times quickly.  You just have to press it once when input help is on and all three descriptions will be given.  Pressing the key three times gives you codes for the character you are on when you press that key.  It doesn't matter how you are reviewing the screen.  Any character that you are on will be described.
 
I'm giving desktop layout commands for input help and the current character command.  I don't use the laptop layout.
 
I just found something interesting.  It appears that such information may not be available for control characters.  It would be interesting to get an explanation of why.  I tried using the current character on a hard return.  I just heard blank, no matter how I used the command.  Evidently, control characters fall outside of the code NVDA reports.

My guess then is that at some point during the read the focus momentarily is
dragged away by some updated part of the screen. You could try maximising
the reading window and see if that stops.

Hi y'all,



I'm using current version ov nvda with win 7 and outlook 2013,

Sometimes, while hearing a message, nvda says message and stops reading.

Ideas, suggestions, solutions?



Thanks,

Monte

I have heard some rumblings on a web design list that Chrome v65 is not properly relaying some ARIA information to screen readers. This is a  issue that will be corrected in the next version of Chrome and is not a problem in the previous version..
