Hi


the new look face book does not seem to have short cuts spoken out as they are probably not there. I just had a quick look it seems it is in beta.


You can change back to the classic face book where they will be spoken etc I just tried it with the new edge.


When you go to log out of face book just before you log out it says switch back to classic face book press the enter key on it. It will then ask why close that screen then it will revert back.


It seems you may be able to switch between them 2 so if this is the case I will have a sus of the new one  and might right up a tutorial for it.


This is with the main face book not the mobile one I was looking at.

I think you will need to make sure browse mode is off. Not sure about facebook shortcuts in particular. I’m assuming you’re using the regular facebook site?

Hi.

This would be a different issue, unless it's not speaking what's in browse mode or on your taskbar. If NVDA starts and says "unknown", it's probably due to your display driver.

Hi Luke and other,

I have a same problem, Nvda says Unknown after starting Windows.

I tried use the fixing tool com, but Nvda says the same.

I would like to know, where is a problem.

I have installed Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.

Question about IF Interpreter NVDA add-on

 

Hi.

To the user with issue with frotz.

Frotz is one of the only ones that you can't open directly the game files.

tads, glulxe etc you can just hit enter with the extention of the file you want.

Frotz you need to open frotz, then open the dat or z file you want to open.

If you open the z file the addon will not run, its never been explained.

I do the same with agility though you can open agx files ok with the addon and it works.

Nick did give me an addon to 2020.

Just checked his github and its there.

so you have 2 options

1.  go to

https://github.com/nstockton/nvda-add-ons/archive/master.zip

2.  extract that to a folder of your choice.

go to that folder and enter the nvda addons master folder

go to applications

go to if interpreters.

highlight all the files with control a.

right click the files.

Using 7zip or something, 7zip can be gotten from.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/sevenzip/files/7-Zip/19.00/7z1900-x64.msi/download

or

https://sourceforge.net/projects/sevenzip/files/7-Zip/19.00/7z1900.msi/download

You can then tell the program to create a zip not 7zip, but zip file.

Name the .zip extention to nvda-addon.

highlight the zip file.

hit f2.

hit end.

hit back space 3 times.

type nvda-addon in the place of .zip.

hit enter.

You should be able to install the package.

Alternitively you can just download the file.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/df01nlqir8g3ln3/IfInterpreters.nvda-addon?dl=1

I'll leave this up for a bit.

For anyone else wanting nicks stuff it appears that most of the stuff he
has is uncompiled like this.

Re: unknown

In NVDA's tools menu is an option called "COM Registration Fixing Tool" which is designed to fix this kind of problem:

1. Press NVDA+N to open the NVDA menu
2. Press T for tools
3. Down arrow to "COM Registration Fixing Tool"
4. Press ENTER, and follow the prompts.
Once done, restart the computer to be sure, and hopefully everything should work again.

Jaffar,

          I am locking this topic since you've supplied all information necessary for anyone who wants to pursue this.

          In the future, and this goes out to anyone who wants to post this sort of thing, please seek approval from the group owner by e-mailing nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io before doing so.  In most cases you'll likely get it, but it's a basic courtesy to seek that permission first for completely off-topic messages that might still be of great interest to the community because of their connection to accessibility.

We are recruiting adults with visual impairments together with their
friends or family members to try out a browser extension designed to
help people with visual impairments solve Google reCAPTCHA by
transferring the task to friends. Research participants will be
divided into requesters and helpers. Requesters will be asked to use
our browser extension via remote sessions that would last 1 hour,
during which they will be asked to log in some websites in browser
private mode and transfer the Google reCAPTCHA testing while the
helpers will wait for messages from them and solve the CAPTCHA task
via a webpage link. At the end of the study, participants will be
invited to participate in a 30-minute remote exit interview aimed at
understanding feedback about the browser extension. Compensation of up
to $30 is being offered for participation.

You can find the recruitment flyer here:

I’ve used Winfrotz before with jFW at least…it’s been a while. I also ran something called filfre, which I think I still have.

Could you not use the review cursor to read content displayed after issuing commands?

Having a braille display when playing these types of games is very nice actually. Well, it is in general, I find, but I realise this is far outside many peoples’ reach.
