Hi gene

You are understanding quite well what my problem is, and with your support I am overcoming them one by one.

Without the sticky keys I won’t be able to using it unfortunately.

I wish you if you don’t mind to check out for me, if I use the insert key of the numpad on works properly?

Because before I used to use the  capslock as well as an insert key. 

I hope you will be able to understand this time as well what I mean, and apologizing for the trouble I’m giving you.

Thanks in advance

Kind regards

Anthony \

Of course, you may not get the desired result in every result.  But if a search is well designed, and you may have to experiment to find a search for a specific thing that brings up good results, you will get relevant results even if you get some that don't apply.  And as you experiment with different searches over time, you will learn how to use good search strings with less experimentation.  Most search strings I use present good results.  At times, I have to try more than one.  but you can often tell if a resuylt is relevant before you follow the link to go to the page.  Below the information about the link, such as the address to which it leads and some other information presented about the link and depending on how your browser settings are set, a menu button or a cached link, you will find brief excerpts from the page.  One thing few people know is that the excerpts are not the same.  They depend on what you are searching for.  If I want to find something and I know specifically just what it is, such as a phone number, if I type, Northwestern Hospital , Chicago IL 773
results will show the phone number in one or more of the excerpts.  So I don't have to follow any results links or look at any pages to find the link.  773 is the Chicago area code, the phone number on the page will be sure to start with the area code and the excerpts, I'll call them context excerpts, my term, will show the phone number based on what you have specified as part of the search string.

You are probably aware that if the caps lock key is selected as a modifier

if it is selected as the modifier key then it would be that key and say the

here unless i am writing some thing unless it is more than a letter i just
use the shift key for just one letter and if i want all of them capitalized

Re: question

Gene
 

I don't know if there is a way to get the keys to stay on which would allow you to make more than one change at a time.  If you issue the key combination as separate keys, either insert and after that press control, you can then press one of the arrow keys one time and the command will be issued.  Then, if you do the same thing again, insert key then control then arrow key, another rate command will be issued. This is slower and more tedious than would be wanted but it can be done in that way.

Hi gene

Many thanks that you have helped me to solve the capslock problem.

If you don’t mind, may I ask you another question please?

In one of the tutorials there is two commands where I have to use the insert key.

For example, to put the volume up or down, it tell you to press ctrl plus insert plus up or down arrow.

In that case I’m using the numpad insert key, but when I do it nothing happen.

Thanks once again for your help,

Site makers, in my view should always have a contact email address you can use before any logging into a site as when issues arise out of their poor choices of web design, they will never know if nobody can get in to tell them will they? In the mean time vote with your browser and find somewhere else to go. If that is one of those snazzy loan sites, steer clear.

Have you contacted the developers to make that point? Nvda can't and will never be able to help you there.

Good luck.

What?
Not sure what you mean. I have this image in my mind of somebody with crayons drawing a water slide with stick man and women on it. Rather like the bloke on that Microsoft advert for his surface pro.
Though I don't think crayons were used in that.

Or do you mean move a slider?
If so unless the site has made this accessible no way in the world to get at it from the keys.

Not all content has subtitles as text though does it? Many are just images.

I heard that you could get NVDA to see subtitles while playing a video in VLC. I cannot, however, find them anywhere.
Object nav only shows button after button, even when the subtitle track is enabled. Where is the line of text hiding?

I concur.
I hate forums and try to use web stuff as little as possible because you have the double whammy of being blind, so sites not designed with no global view by the user in mind and secondly you have to then figure out if the site has an understandable logic to it to allow faster use. Sadly the groups.io fails at both in this particular case. I got the impression it was a bolt on goody, and not enough thought was put into it.

Travis,

I'm not going to say anything after this. But if you think the random user of this group is going to use the web interface in the first place there is ample evidence that this is contrary to fact. If they do, if you think they'll "drill down" after a search that's even less likely.

I wouldn't drill down after a group name search because subgroups should be plainly identified. They are not.

Interfaces need to be designed around what "most people" would do. You, clearly, are not most people, you work far harder than most are willing to, which is a great thing. But if interfaces were designed for folks like you well over half the world would be unable to locate a darned thing, and that's based on observations from having been in this business since the 1980s. People are generally lazy, on the whole, and a good user interface takes that into account.

Re: kindle

 

hi.
from user guide:
8.8. Kindle for PC
NVDA supports reading and navigating books in Amazon Kindle for PC.
This functionality is only available in Kindle books designated with
"Screen Reader: Supported" which you can check on the details page for
the book.
Browse mode is used to read books. It is enabled automatically when
you open a book or focus the book area. The page will be turned
automatically as appropriate when you move the cursor or use the say
all command. You can manually turn to the next page with the pageDown
key and turn to the previous page with the pageUp key.
Single letter navigation is supported for links and graphics, but only
within the current page. Navigating by link also includes footnotes.
8.8.1. Text Selection
Kindle allows you to perform various functions on selected text,
including obtaining a dictionary definition, adding notes and
highlights, copying the text to the clipboard and searching the web.
To do this, first select text as you normally would in browse mode;
e.g. by using shift and the cursor keys. Once you have selected text,
press the applications key or shift+f10 to show the available options
for working with the selection. If you do this with no text selected,
options will be shown for the word at the cursor.
8.8.2. User Notes
You can add a note regarding a word or passage of text. To do this,
first select the relevant text and access the selection options as
described above. Then, choose Add Note.
When reading in browse mode, NVDA refers to these notes as comments.
To view, edit or delete a note:
1. Move the cursor to the text containing the note.
2. Access the options for the selection as described above.
3. Choose Edit Note.

God bless you!

Hi, Brian,

 

The other day I was trying to do a search for a song on youtube. It was a very rare oldie I was trying to find for the music group I'm on. I couldn't find the song so I had to ask a member of the list if they had it. As far as google, I don't use the down-arrow to find search results. I use the H for headings and sometimes I can find what I'm looking for. If I go to a new site and try to find something, I don't always know what I'm looking for until I become familiar with that site. A good example of that is an oldies station I sometimes listen to. Since I'm familiar with that site, I can do the find command and look for the "listen live" link.

 

My point is this. Sometimes you can't always find something by searching no matter how hard you try. That's why we have email lists--so we can ask questions if we get stuck.

    I agree that just telling somone to just google that is very harch.  You can't always find what you are looking forand if you do you will have take a very long time down arrowing to find what you want.  The sighted can just look at their screens and see what they want but we can't.  People who tell somone on lists to just google it are the ones who are lazy they don't want to help and thats what email lists are for.  If you can't ask for help or ask a question with out getting critisized then why even have email list att and why are people even on list in the first place?   Maybe that person has lready has googled it but they could not find what they were looking for.  This even does happen to the sighted but because we are blind we are just not soposed to ask for help that seems to be a great sin in the blind community asking for help because we are soposed to be super independent.  Some people might need more training and we are all not at the same leavel of independence as others are and neither were they either.  It's often easier and faster to post a question and ask for help on an email list than it is to  just google it.  You will also get better results because the answers that you get come from other people who have found a sultion to your problem.  I am very greatful and very thankful for all of the help that I have received from people on lists and if I can help I will do so.

This issue comes up from time to time, mostly on blind related lists. Interestingly, when among sighted people who have a tech question from time to time, usually if one knows the answer, they just give it. why have these lists at all if one can't feel comfortable asking a question? Now, if the same person asks questions repeatedly, and asks the same question over and over again, it may be appropriate to refer him or her to a resource, or advise that they may want to seek training, but i think that telling someone to "Google it" when they occasionally ask a question is rather harsh.

Most of us including myself are lazy. Ok, I'll google for something but if I just can't find the answer or the pages are 10 years old (this did happen to me a few times) I will ask on a list and point to the steps I took to troubleshoot the issue, and the steps I tool to try and figure out on my own how to do what ever it is I'm trying to do with nvda, narrator, voiceover, talkback etc.

 

Take care

Hi.

A quick query. Lately, I have realized that most persons subscribed to this list, rather than going to Google or a search engine of their choice, seek to ask questions here prior to doing this type of research. I’d seriously like to know why, as I find this practice to be counterproductive. Why do I say this? Because sometimes, the responses that are given are incorrect. Why don’t persons read the NVDA User Guide, for example. It is well detailed. Could persons explain this to me?
