Re: Ghost Windows When Copying and Pasting or cutting and pasting in Windows Explorer In Windows 10

Felix G.
 

Hi!
That's exactly what it is. NVDA's focus tracking is slightly broken,
as I reported in 2018:
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/8389
The window is not actually still there, it's just that the active
window switches, and NVDA expects information about this new context
to be available within 500 ms which, on busy or slow machines, is not
always possible.
To investigate whether this bug is actually responsible, execute the
following statements in the Python console:
import watchdog
watchdog.MIN_CORE_ALIVE_TIMEOUT = watchdog.NORMAL_CORE_ALIVE_TIMEOUT
Then try the copy or move operation again and see if the ghost has
been exorcised.
Best,
Felix

I've noticed this ghost window also. I just hit tab and it usually goes away. It's usually a focus problem with the screen reader. Another time I've noticed ghost windows is if you are in the settings app invoked with win+i. If you exit it, sometimes, by invoking the say title, you hear something like, ShellExperieNceHost.

Hi Luke,

I know the window is still there because as every experienced user of
any screen reader, if you press a keystroke or as in this case, if you
check to see if the file has appeared in the new location and if all you
hear when you press an up/down arrow key is 'blank,' then you press the
keystroke insert (NVDA) + T. That's when I get the feedback such as
'87%' or 94%' or 100%'.

Hey David, I don't know if Office 365 has it, but under options, I
think under view tab, there's an option that refers to live preview.
Disabling it really speeds up Word.

Re: Can NVDA Access Font Attributes for Non Standard Web Page Links?

Kenny <kwashingtonbox@...>
 

Did try that NVDA shortcut key combination Gene. Will test some other routines that may yield some sort of difference. Just figured since there was a change in color some coding in the HTML would be visible in helping NVDA speak it.

Have you tried NVDA key f before and after activating the link or whatever the control is? You may hear a different color, though I don't know if such changes are properly available when in browse mode. You may want to compare before and after activation with browse mode on and off, switching settings before and after activation so you get responses in both settings for before and after.

Subject: [nvda] Can NVDA Access Font Attributes for Non Standard Web Page Links?


This problem has been bugging me for a while, so I've decided to ask
much smarter people here on the list about it.


Decided to tinker with my old TP-Link Archer C3150 router for I'm
looking to replace my current Verizon Quantum Gateway Router.


In the Archer C3150 admin area the various settings are toggled on/off
by clicking what seems to be a non standard HTML link. Not sure if it is
created with Java Script or DHTML. The problem is that I have no verbal
confirmation from NVDA if the font has changed color, face type or anything.


Got visual assistance and I'm told the link turns "Green" when toggled
on, and "Red" when toggled off.


Is there any add-on or NVDA keyboard shortcut available that would allow
me to access all font attributes of a letter the mouse pointer or
Browser cursor is focused on?


The background/foreground color, type, size etc? There has too be a way
for me to get some sort of feedback on these links from NVDA.


Having the "Clickable" option under Document Formatting in NVDA
preferences enabled is very helpful. If I didn't have that turned on, I
wouldn't even know the text associated with some of these options is a
link at all.


I also encountered similar situations in the Tidal, Spotify and MyMedia
(Alexa skill) apps. Specifically when accessing the settings page for
modifying important options.


Any recommendations on what I can do when trying to navigate pages
containing these new fangled visually esthetic links?


I'm using NVDA 2020.1 by the way under Windows 10 2004.

Hi Brian,

In answer to your one question: no I do not use classic shell or similar legacy type utilities.

Ron,

             All I can tell you is that I have never encountered what you describe in my entire time working with Windows, prior to and with screen readers.  I have absolutely no idea what is going on, and I can't believe "it's a fluke" if you've had this going on that long.  That being said, that cries, "User action of some kind," having created the situation.  The question is, what?  Let's hope someone else has encountered it and knows the solution.

             The only window I've ever encountered during a copy or paste after cut is the status window giving progress, and that disappears on its own.  You aren't using something like Classic Shell or similar, are you?  Those utilities have settings that might possibly be configured such that this situation could occur.

I hadn't but did so after reading your suggestion. It's possible that I'm noticing a slight amount of improvement since doing so and so I appreciate the advice.

After comparing NVDA's performance in Word as well as with JAWS 2020 I will say that JAWS also exhibits a slight slow-down in responsiveness on my machine, as well, compared to how it handles Wordpad. The slowdown is not as annoying as it is with NVDA but even with JAWS there is still a difference. Therefore, this is not really an NVDA issue but JAWS is just handling it a bit better. I may just have to accept that this may be a limitation of my current machine and may only be able to really solve for it by getting a computer with more high end or at least more modern specs.
