Google appearing in Frame in Firefox

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Hi all,

 

I am using Firefox latest version, windows 10 and Google search page with the latest NVDA.

 

I have set my default page in Firefox to:

https://www.google.ie/search?complete=0

 

This has worked fine for many years until two nights ago.

 

Now Google opens up with some sort of frame that I cannot navigate clearly enough to describe here. The frame ends with a got it button which appears under the cursor when the page is fully loaded. I press enter or space bar to select the got it button in the hope that this will bring me back to the simple Google search edit box. However, nothing happens!

 

The screen goes completely still and no keys work on it. NVDA freezes. After about two minutes, NVDA wakes up and announces Google but then stops.

 

When I get a bit of reaction from the screen I can see that Google is in some sort of frame. I cannot find any description of frames in Firefox and so I am stumped!

 

Can anyone advise what is happening and what I can do to get back to my normal Google search window?

 

By the way, I had the latest Firefox when this problem first appeared. I have now gone back to Firefox  56.2 in the hope that the earlier Firefox would not invoke the Google frames but Google still does the same thing. I opened Google with the search?complete=0 argument and it opens without any problem. This issue seems to apply only to Firefox when using the Google search engine.

 

Please help while I still have some hair left!

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Re: Using VLC media player with NVDA

Thank you all.  I've installed the NVDA addon and will be doing some more exploration later.  For those interested, 3.0 brings functionality for casting directly to a Chromecast using the media/render menu option.  If all goes well, your Chromecast should appear in the submenu that appears when you invoke this menu item.  You will have to approve a UAC check, and then it just works.  (Or rather, it just works sort of, when it feels like, according to no rhyme or reason I can yet discover, still it's better than the state of play before, and presumably, this functionality is under development.)

As for moving around in a file ... there are commands for this. You should read the hotkey table. Shift-left or right for instance will move you a short increment; ctrl-left or right a longer increment (I can't remember the default increments, but they are probably configurable, given that this is vlc).

did someone try vlc version 3?
the last version that i tried is 2.2.8.
it workes, but not very intuative like km or potplayer.
for example:
i cant go forward or backword using just left and right arrow keys which makes navigation a little fifficult.
and when i go to preferences nvda says pane pane pane many times, after announcing specific option, it tells about fonts!

I don't know how to explain the preferences dialog. Sometimes it works ok; sometimes it doesn't. It's generally a bit of a frustrating experience. Sometimes for instance when you are on a checkbox, you need to actively check or uncheck the box with the spacebar before you can even be sure you are on a checkbox at all. I wish I could elucidate this program a little better.

nvdaHelperRemote persists with latest snapshot

Christo de Klerk
 

Hello especially to the NVDA developers


A few days ago (a few snapshots ago) I wrote that when I updated NVDA to the new snapshot, I received an error message with the following label:


nvdaHelperRemote (outprocMgrThreadFunc)

The text of the error message is:


Error registering focus winEvent hook

Then there is an Ok button. When I Ok the dialog, NVDA works, except that there is no browse mode buffer which makes web browsing impossible.


This problem persists with the very latest snapshot which I have just installed, so I had to fall back again to the last working snapshot which is from about 4 February. This happens only on my 64 bit machine.


The result of this is that I have not been able to use the last number of snapshots and I have a real concern that this problem may manifest itself once 2018.1 gets released which would mean that I will not be able to use that version on my 64 bit machine.


Does anyone have any idea what is happening here?


Kind regards


Christo

I assume its still the earlier version which is running then?
Have you tried a reinstall of it?
Also what happens if you do the update to the latest version.


Did the update mess with any settings in windows at all? Such as the processor throttling or maybe the indexing settings?

Windows did an update today, at least windows 7 did and itt was very insistant, every time I told it to defer it it came back so I had to close umpteen windows down after saving contents so it could restart.
One annoying thing about the restart of windows is that the window opened that has the countdown is not opened in the forground, so very often I've had the thing shut down while I was working on a document meaning I had to recover it from a list afterwarrds.

Its a pity that nvda could not spot update windows and alert one to their presence.

Re: explanation

Gene
 

What I described about how to listen on this site isn't standard.  How this site works in that respect might be new to a lot of people, even if they use the Internet regulartly. 
 
I didn't know how to work with the player until I experimented.  I pressed enter on the word application but nothing happpened.  I pressed enter on the word web in the phrase web player but nothing happened.  I then tried tabbing instead of down arrowing and I found the buttons I discussed.  I tried various things without having any idea if any would work. This approach did.

That's nice but it doesn't mean you shouldn't try what I said.  You can listen online and you will have such problems in future with various audio streams unless you learn other ways of working with audio sites that have podcasts than just use save target as.

Some sites won't let you save the file using save target as.  Save target as

is described by some people as the way to save everything.  It's not.  You
are saving the actual link, the way that site is organized.  Press enter on
the play link and let it start to play in whatever browser you are using, if

you are using Firefox or Chrome.  Then, when play begins, use the command
control s to open a save dialog.  Use that dialog to save the audio file.
I'm not sure that will work in Internet Explorer but if you are using
Internet Explorer, I think it will either open the save dialog or it will
open Windows Media Player or some other program.  You can tell us what
happens and we might be able to tell you how to save the file from the
player.

Please provide full links.  You can go to the page you are having a problem with, in this case the page where the link is you are trying to follow, copy the address to the clipboard from the address bar, then paste it into the message.  That way, people can go to the same page immediately. 

 

The way you are doing it now, people have to verify the address of the site with an Internet search, go to the home page, then look for and go to what they think is the page you are having a problem with.

Tell us the site, often they have a different link to download to the play
one.
 There could be many reasons apart from copyright, it may well be that the
files are not in the same place all the time and the html inteermediary page
then redirects the user to the right place. Examining some of these
downloaded small html files can give a clue to where the file actually is
stored but not always.

That's nice but it doesn't mean you shouldn't try what I said.  You can listen online and you will have such problems in future with various audio streams unless you learn other ways of working with audio sites that have podcasts than just use save target as.

Some sites won't let you save the file using save target as.  Save target as

is described by some people as the way to save everything.  It's not.  You
are saving the actual link, the way that site is organized.  Press enter on
the play link and let it start to play in whatever browser you are using, if

you are using Firefox or Chrome.  Then, when play begins, use the command
control s to open a save dialog.  Use that dialog to save the audio file.
I'm not sure that will work in Internet Explorer but if you are using
Internet Explorer, I think it will either open the save dialog or it will
open Windows Media Player or some other program.  You can tell us what
happens and we might be able to tell you how to save the file from the
player.

Re: Earlier version working

Well, in frustration, I uninstalled the latest version of NVDA and installed one from 2015.  Voila! Everything is working.  I don't know why.  No more unknowns and silences.  Since it's an earlier version perhaps the finer tunings don't work as well, but it's nice to have it back!

Either your mouse pointer is not actually in the right position to activate the link (if you are using right click, this may well be the case), or, as has already been said, the link takes to you to a page, and isn’t actually an mp3 download. Hit enter and see what happens. I personally much prefer the way Firefox handles downloads….

Re: Using VLC media player with NVDA

 

hi.
did someone try vlc version 3?
the last version that i tried is 2.2.8.
it workes, but not very intuative like km or potplayer.
for example:
i cant go forward or backword using just left and right arrow keys
which makes navigation a little fifficult.
and when i go to preferences nvda says pane pane pane many times,
after announcing specific option, it tells about fonts!
exactly like the time that you use nvda+f!
what should i do to prevent this problem?

Hi



There is a tutorial up on my website for VLC media player but it is more for
playing dvds with audio description and music which should also have a link
to the add on in the page.



it can be found at
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html

After going to the page you will need to jump down by headings to the VLC
media player tutorial.



hope it helps.

It’s very powerful and versatile, but sometimes things are non-intuitive,

always play so nicely with screen-readers. It is however possible to change
the VLC interface. I don’t know if there are any specific interface
alterations available that work better with NVDA. I’d certainly be
interested to find out. For now, I’ve *mostly* gotten the program to do
everything I want it to do. The hardest thing, strangely enough, has been to
save my own equalizer settings for movies, but I think I finally got that
covered.

Re: explanation

Gene
 

I looked at the cite.  First, never assume that an audio link leads directly to the audio when you try save target and it doesn't work.  If you follow the link from the home page that says podcast, you are taken to a different web page from which you listen to the podcast.  Not everything that calls itself a podcast can be downloaded.  When you used save target as, you were saving the link to the page you need to go to.  Once you get there, you will see something, but I don't know just what because it may depend on the browser and screen-reader being used.  The combination of NVDA and Firefox shows, partway down the page, a line that says, web player and below that, a line that says application.
Don't down arrow past the line that says web player.  Start tabbing.  You will see a play button.  Press enter on it.  The podcast will start to play.  Using the space bar on the button won't work.  Never assume how things are laid out on web pages.  If something doesn't work and there is a link to follow, such as in this case to the podcast, follow it and see what happens.  Save target as works at times and it doesn't at other times.
