Re: Any desktop client for twitter with NVDA

 

Looks like TW Blue is working on Mastodon support. Ignore my closed pull request. I was trying to suggest Mastodon support as a suggestion and saw they were experimenting with Mastodon.

Here's a screen reader guide for Mastodon in case anybody missed my earlier message.


Re: Any desktop client for twitter with NVDA

Good Evening,

I had to uninstall, then reinstall TWBlue about 2 weeks ago because it was acting up.  Since then, things have worked a lot better. There is a client called The Qube that some people use.

Re: Add-On Updater: Is there a way to force it to check for updates?

 

Hi,
This is the author of Add-on Updater add-on speaking...
In order to see "check for add-on updates" item, you MUST install Add-on Updater add-on. NVDA does not have a native functionality to check for add-on updates yet, although there is an ongoing discussion as to how to bring this to life in a future release.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi all. I'm back with another question.


I've been using QBitTorrent for torrents, but so far as I can tell,
the list of torrents is inaccessible. So I've been using the web interface.
While that's accessible, my problem is this. Say I have, I dunno,
twelve torrents going. I want to delete seven of them. In the web
interface, I have to pick one, delete it, pick another one, delete it,
and so on. Is there a way to do this in QBitTorrent itself, so I can
pick multiple torrents and just delete them? Ideally it would also ask
me if I wanted to delete the actual data or not.


Alternatively, can anybody recommend another client that's accessible?
I was using utorrent/mu torrent, whatever it's called, but one place I
check doesn't like it anymore because it has some sort of security
issue or something. That's why I switched to QBitTorrent. It wasn't
really accessible either. You'd think a list box wouldn't be that hard
but apparently torrent client designers like to make them non-standard
or something. So if anybody's got something really accessible, I'd
love to know about it. Maybe that is QBitTorrent and I'm just missing something.

What version of NVDA are you running?  I have found the "Check for Add-On updates" item at the very bottom of the menu you are already in.  I can either down-arrow to it or hit A twice to land on it once that menu is open via NVDA+N,T

I'm running 2019.3, and have the Add-Ons Updater add-on installed, which I believe is a requirement for this menu item to appear.

Yeah, it works well, but is slower than clients like TWBlue or Open Tween. I prefer Open Tween, but is banned now, so I'm using TWBlue.

Re: Screen reader changes for discord.

Sarah k Alawami
 

Discord is a chat client that also does voice as well. You can set roles and restrictions so that let's say you see a channel, but bryan does not, or you and bryan see a channel but I an Robert do not etc etc etc. Or if bryan was miss behaving (sorry I'm throwing you under tghe buss a lot) I could restrict him to see none of the server or to see one channel. Look it up by googling "discord."

Subject: [nvda] Screen reader changes for discord.

 

Below, you will find screen reader updates Discord has made. I haven't tried this out yet, but first, a few other things.

Screen reader guide for Discord.

The changeling has made a really great screen reader guide for Discord. Donate to them if at all possible.

How to get discord.

The most accessible way is going to the Discord Ninite page. The software on that page is a few versions behind but just let it update upon starting the app, after install.

The screen reader changes.

I copied this from the release notes and applied my own formatting.

  • Added a Reduced Motion accessibility feature. Enable under User Settings > Appearance > Accessibility. This’ll help users who are affected by excess motion and effects. Enabling it reduces the amount and intensity of animations that occur across Discord, making the app a little less...jiggly.

We’ve made several improvements to how Screen Readers interact with Discord. These include:

  1. All the big parts of the main app screen are now region landmarks so you can jump between them more easily.
  2. Things that kind of seemed like lists before are now actually marked as lists (whoops): Channels, Members, DMs, and Messages are more structured now. The whole server list is now a tree view to make it easier to find the server you want to view next.
  3. You can now more easily tell when a server or channel has mentioned you or has unread messages, distinguish between different types of channels and categories, know how many people are in a voice channel, and more.

It really bugs me they add the, and more, part, but this is a really, really, great step in the right direction though. Still no accessibility feedback email though.

locked Re: Help to join the Bugzilla for Thunderbird with NVDA

 

NOTE:  I have made a moderator decision to respond to this, on group, because I believe it is critically important for anyone, using any software, to be able to report bugs when they find them.   A very great many organizations use Bugzilla, so I will give the initial step-by-step instructions for getting a Bugzilla account for a specific organization.  For Thunderbird that would be Mozilla, but other well-known projects like Open Office, Libre Office, a number of Linux distros, and more use Bugzilla.  The steps outlined should be the same for any of them, you just have to get to the correct Bugzilla site for the organization/product in question first.  Not every organization that uses Bugzilla is listed on their Installation List page.  You may need to contact support for the product you want to report about to determine whether they are using Bugzilla, GitHub, or some other mechanism entirely for bug reporting.

Setting up a Bugzilla Account Using a Screen Reader

1.       Go to the Bugzilla Installation List Page and search for the project you’re interested in getting a Bugzilla Account for.  If you’re looking to set yourself up for Mozilla products (Firefox & Thunderbird) then search on Mozilla.  There are about 150 organizations listed, and I can’t know which one you are looking to create a Bugzilla account for.  Each Bugzilla instance belongs to the organization that’s using it and you need separate accounts for each organization you wish to be able to report bugs for.  Activate the link for that organization.

2.       Activate New Account link on that organization's Bugzilla page.

3.       On page that opens, under Create an account, navigate to email address edit box and enter email address.

4.       Tab to checkbox for “I have read . . .” and activate it.

5.       Use the b navigation shortcut to take you to the Create Account button and activate it.

6.       At this point you’ll be sent an email to the address you used with a link that you must activate to continue account creation.

7.       On the browser window that pops up you will be asked for a display name/real name followed by a password and confirm password.  Passwords must be at least 12 characters and contain uppercase letters, lowercase letters, digits, and certain listed special characters. 


This was as far as I got recently with someone in setting up the Bugzilla Account, and this completed the process.  I have not written, nor attempted to write, anything related to how to submit a bug report for any specific product.

I am now locking this topic, as it is not directly NVDA related.  I will be happy to continue to assist, if needed, on the Chat Subgroup.  Start a new topic there if you need additional assistance related to Bugzilla in general or for Mozilla products in particular.

Good Morning:  I'm using the Bata of NVDA and have the problem that has been referred in earlier versions of Thunderbird.  Bryan can I have your help in joining the Bugzella sight, so, I can help hopefully.  I'm a retired programmer.  However, I can not make heads or tails of their page to join.  I can get to the point of entering my email, but can not go any farther.  Thanks in advance.
