Re: can't use the letter K to get from link to link

Rosemarie Chavarria
 

Hi, Gene,

 

I tried checking that box but that didn't work. I'll probably have to have a sighted relative look at it and see what's going on. I wonder if the tech did delete something that NVDA needs.

 

Thank you for trying to help though.

In browse mode settings, tab a lot of times until you get to a check box that says, Trap all non-command gestures from reaching the document.

 

If it isn't checked, check it.  Of course, the tech may have done something else or corrupted or deleted something NVDA needs to perform these tasks properly, but this may be the solution.

Hi, everyone,

 

Recently I had to have my computer repaired. Yesterday I brought it home from the shop but found that now I can't get to the links list with NVDA f-7 or the letter K. Whoever repaired my computer must have changed some settings on it. I have the proper boxes checked but don't know why this isn't working. Here is what I was trying to do. I wanted to go to the Gmail site to find out if I had messages in my spam folder that aren't spam. When I hit K to go from link to link, all I get is K and nothing else. When I hit NVDA f-7 to go to the links list, I get a message asking if I want to turn on caret browsing. What could bee causing this?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

I chose to postpone the update, for now. I may well end up just going for it. It seems that a good number of people are actually ok with using Quantum with their screen-reader already, this before Mozilla makes their improvements in 58, 59 or whatever it is.

Hello all.

 

I just installed the new firefox.

The only thing wrong with it as far as I’m concerned is that it is slower.

So for now I’ll either use google chrome or edge as my default browser.

I’m using the new nightly firefox 58, and it is not much better, as promised it would be.

Just my opinions though.

Have a good da y.

nvda tickets

 

I posted a ticket on the topic of Zoom yesterday. Do we see emails corresponding to our own tickets before someone comments on them? I'm just curious. If I've done something wrong, I'd like to know. I filled it out and then pressed the submit button.


Re: create portable copy

Gene
 

As I understand it, you can make a portable copy and place it anywhere, then you can take the portable copy and place it anywhere else, on a thumb drive, an external drive, on a new computer, and it will work.  That's how portable programs are supposed to work.  If it makes it easier, make the portable copy anywhere you want, then copy or cut and paste the folder containing the portable program wherever you like.

Absolutely it does. But it doesn't have cursor tracking. At least I don't see how it can, since there are only six dots.  DotsSeven and eight blink to show the position of the cursor in standard 8 dot Braille configurations.  I could be totally wrong about this of course. Perhaps the entire letter blinks to show the position of the cursor. I feel pretty confident, but I suppose it was not safe to speculate without having seen the device in operation.

I think you have to look at it like this. When a Perkins brailler costs $800, and a refreshable braille display costs $400, the Braille display becomes instantly attractive in learning environments.

Cursor tracking would be nice, but six dots is all you need to start teaching people how to use the code. We streamlined learning of Braille into technology. We substantially reduce paper waste. We slash both the upfront and long-term cost, and we make Braille relevant to Consumers who would otherwise wonder why they are taking the time to learn it.

For myself, I really need 8 dot Computer Braille, and cursor tracking in my classes. So, this device will not be great for me; however, I think it's great that one of these is actually going to hit the market. I hope when they start recovering some of their R&D costs, they will expand the size, add the cursor tracking feature is, and make it a little bit more relevant to Advanced Braille users.

I am excited to inform you that we are launching Braille Me,
world's most affordable smart braille display at USD 399/- on the
4th of January celebrating the World Braille Day. Let me give you
an overview of Braille Me.

About Braille Me -

Ever Since Louis Braille invented the wonderful script of Braille,
it has been adopted all across the globe empowering millions of
individuals. Today, after 200 years we are on the verge of a
revolution in Braille. Braille Me, is built to bring digital
braille to everyone immaterial of their geographical, economic or
lingual
background.

It has a six-dot 20-cell braille display, a Perkins-style keypad,
cursor routing buttons and few navigation keys.  It has
capabilities to work as a stand-alone editor and also connect to
smartphones and computers via Bluetooth and USB. It is a balanced
device with core features of a complex notetaker while having the
simplicity of a braille
display.

Braille Me has become possible due to two breakthroughs in
Affordability and multi-language. Braille Me is designed with our
patented Braille cell technology which makes the device
cost-effective by an order of magnitude compared to existing
products and supports more than 40 languages spanning all across
the
globe.

Re: NVDA and Firefox 57

I've just opened Firefox to find it bug up on the very start page.

Do you manage to make it work with youtube? When I tried it today, it bugged my machine up, and made me to shut it up as was not recommended to start it again to get myself out of the bug-up situation. Then,  tried some simpler sites to check whether it would be the same, and found out that it worked good.


I use Windows 7, 64bit with NVDA 2017.3.


Firefox version, latest.


Do you think that I may enable and/or disable some security and/or accessibility features to make it easier for my Firefox to deal with more complicated sites such as youtube, FB, and some pronounciation-providing dictionaries? I am ready to disable all the security features and be as vulnerable as possible to any sort of attacks so as to make it go as smoothly as possible because the sites I visit are 100% risk free.


Thankful in advance,

Chromevox has a long history, back when Chrome book computers first started, they accessed all their aps through the web interface of Chrome browser. ie it was not running windows. They built in a rudamentary screenreader to help people its always been very basic and I have never bothered with it as it was really only relevant in the above context as soon Chrome implimented apis for its windows version which allowed other screenreaders to be used.

allow this site always then hit reload, then it let it go through.

I do wish that security dialogs and extention add dialogs got read

and screen readers can't read legacy windows so well.

Hi.

Ok guys decided to cut my losses and switched to chrome.

What an experience change.

Its true I need to do a bit more configging but just about every
file just saves now.

And access wize there are accessibility addons.

For me noscript doesn't come but the rest.

First https everywhere, privacy badger and ublock origin exist thats
good.

I use download notifier for sounds, and google sound effects tweaked
so it doesn't make sounds for everything I do key typing scroling
down pages, etc.

However its better than the crappy addon I have on firefox.

Its got accessibility features and its fully configurable, maybe ms
should take a leaf out of google's book for their stuff because
headings for everything.

The only issues I have is when removing addon extentions I have to
hit enter twice as there is a lot of unknown and the same with
adding extentions tab once and hit enter.

I also don't care for the top down approach of the google app store.

However I am fully setup and while it could be better, I do believe
that firefox as it stands is history with me.

Noscript, well its not really important right now, everything works
as needed.

I do feel sad leaving firefox though.

Why do some people care so much about browser sounds? When a page
has finished opening, you'll know it because the screen-reader
automatically starts to read it. When a page doesn't load for some
reason, a lot of the time there is an error message. When you
download a file, you can easily check the estimated time remaining
for the download. I understand the desire to hear a sound when a
download finishes because that will tell you, without you having to
check or without perhaps getting busy with something else and
forgetting to check in a timely manner. But how much of the
concern with sounds is just habit? Maybe people would be surprised
if they didn't use browser sounds for three days as a trial, how
quickly almost all of the sounds fade into insignificance. Even
the download finished sound may decrease significantly in
importance.

I am excited to inform you that we are launching Braille Me,
world's most affordable smart braille display at USD 399/- on the
4th of January celebrating the World Braille Day. Let me give you
an overview of Braille Me.

About Braille Me -

Ever Since Louis Braille invented the wonderful script of Braille,
it has been adopted all across the globe empowering millions of
individuals. Today, after 200 years we are on the verge of a
revolution in Braille. Braille Me, is built to bring digital
braille to everyone immaterial of their geographical, economic or
lingual
background.

It has a six-dot 20-cell braille display, a Perkins-style keypad,
cursor routing buttons and few navigation keys. It has
capabilities to work as a stand-alone editor and also connect to
smartphones and computers via Bluetooth and USB. It is a balanced
device with core features of a complex notetaker while having the
simplicity of a braille
display.

Braille Me has become possible due to two breakthroughs in
Affordability and multi-language. Braille Me is designed with our
patented Braille cell technology which makes the device
cost-effective by an order of magnitude compared to existing
products and supports more than 40 languages spanning all across
the
globe.

Hi,

Cursor tracking as you call it, or routing, which I believe is the correct term, is in Braille Me.

I think you have to look at it like this. When a Perkins brailler costs $800, and a refreshable braille display costs $400, the Braille display becomes instantly attractive in learning environments.

Cursor tracking would be nice, but six dots is all you need to start teaching people how to use the code. We streamlined learning of Braille into technology. We substantially reduce paper waste. We slash both the upfront and long-term cost, and we make Braille relevant to Consumers who would otherwise wonder why they are taking the time to learn it.

For myself, I really need 8 dot Computer Braille, and cursor tracking in my classes. So, this device will not be great for me; however, I think it's great that one of these is actually going to hit the market. I hope when they start recovering some of their R&D costs, they will expand the size, add the cursor tracking feature is, and make it a little bit more relevant to Advanced Braille users.

NVDA's response is crisp and accurate when I move from line to line

before the next word is longer than I would like. Is there a place in the
settings to shorten the pause?

Re: NVDA and Firefox 57

Dejan Ristic
 

Do you manage to make it work with youtube? When I tried it today, it bugged my machine up, and made me to shut it up as was not recommended to start it again to get myself out of the bug-up situation. Then,  tried some simpler sites to check whether it would be the same, and found out that it worked good.


I use Windows 7, 64bit with NVDA 2017.3.


Firefox version, latest.


Do you think that I may enable and/or disable some security and/or accessibility features to make it easier for my Firefox to deal with more complicated sites such as youtube, FB, and some pronounciation-providing dictionaries? I am ready to disable all the security features and be as vulnerable as possible to any sort of attacks so as to make it go as smoothly as possible because the sites I visit are 100% risk free.


Thankful in advance,


Dejan

Re: Unveiling Braille Me - World's Most Affordable Smart Braille Display

David <trailerdavid@...>
 

A couple of days ago, I aired some of my initial thoughts on the new
BrailleMe display. Amongst these, was the disappointment I instantly
felt, when learning it only holds 6-dots. I do see numerous responses,
and perhaps my feelings came across the wrong way. So may I be allowed
to take your next couple of minutes, in elaborating a tiny bit on my
reflections?

First of all, as several of you have pointed out, it is great news if
any of all the
    "We have made a low-cost device"
products, finally is going to hit the market. Too many claim to have
things developed, and we hardly ever see them. People tell us that
thingss are just around the corner, and sometimes you wonder if that is
another technique of holding other developers outside the very idea of
hitting the market with anything competing. So by all means, if they are
ready to release the product, and if 6-dot Braille was all they could
come up with right now, nothing is better than
    Get That Product Out The Door.

My guess is that the market is high over-time awaiting a product that
challenges the high-cost products. And for many this might be the very
thing that will introduce them to the electronic Braille world. As such,
we all welcome the product.

Then, one of you compared it to a 6-dot Perkins Brailler, and lined up
the benefits of the BrailleMe display. I have no trouble in following,
and pretty well backing, those arguments. We could of course argue the
fact, that other mechanical Braille machines already have introduced
their 8-dot versions. But we will leave that out of the scope for now.

If all you want to do with your new Braille device, is to write and read
SMS, Email or books and documents - well I guess a 6-dot display will be
allright. Done the right way, provided the necessary drivers, the touch
and experience of it all, will be not too far from what you are
comfortable with from your paper-books. You will still have dot 6,
indicating that the next character is an upper-case. Your dots 3, 4, 5
and 6, indicates that here comes a character that is not to be read as
the letter C, but rather represents the number 3. All in all, totally
familiar, and fully doable.

Yet, the Braille display soon will get outranged, should you want more
advanced and complete performance. OK, I do agree, in such cases even
the fact of only 20 cells, might put this unit out of question anyway,
so why bother. But say you are on a low budget, you decide that all you
can afford is a 20 celler, and hence you pick up the BrailleMe. Of
course, you don't want to end up in a month's time, realizeing that you
would have been better off digging up another 50 dollars or so, bringing
you a device that more was in line with the actual needs. And that is
why, I do wonder why they did not throw in the two extra dots. Would it
have complicated the product? Raised the pricing drastically? Lengthened
the launching time? Or, was it just that they forgot to think one step
further? I am not to criticize, I just was letting out my initial
reflections.

6, or 8 dots? Sure, many of you might decide it does not matter for your
activity. Like I already stated, if all you need is to read and write
simple text, you will be fine with the 6 dots. One of you, reflected one
of my thoughts:
    How is it going to represent the cursor?

I do remember one of my first displays - back in the 80's - which
represented the cursor by a full cell (all dots). You then had to press
a dedicated key on the display, to kind of "lift away" the cursor, to
see the actuall character in that cell. Doable, most definitely, but not
exactly highly productive. Then I got in touch with a display that
indicated the cursor, by making the character pop up and down, also
known as blinking. My experience, and that of many newly blinded
(low-effecient Braille readers), was that this made it hard to read the
actual character. Sure, the blinking rate could be somehow adjusted, and
enough training, you were able to operate the display well enough.

My next display, had the dot 8 blinking, to indicate the cursor. Some
displays those days used the 7 and 8, either constantly showing up, or
blinking - to tell you where to find the cursor. Point is, there's been
numerous ways of representing the cursor symbol on different displays
and models. I do wish, the company would have let us know - for instance
through the video - how they have solved this kind of issue. Or, how
about releasing the user's manual for the product, to let the user know
what to expect. As things stand, all we can do is speculate; and wait.
And likely we will have some surprise. Smiles.

Do i deem this unit out and down? NO!
Do I tell it to be lacking effeciency? Well, to a certain degree - based
on what we know.
Do I think it will be of great benefit to many, even being operable
despite its lacks? Sure, and for all those, congratulations you finally
can be welcomed among the electronic Braille users; a world that will
reveal numerous new chances for you.
Finally, do I consider getting hold of one of these units myself? Yeah,
why not? It might be handy in many situations.

Yet, for a complete daily, and all stand-alone usage, I would think this
to be a too simple equipment. As I pointed out earlier, the moment you
want to ensure your text is correctly lined up, the instant you need to
read a specialized computer character or symbol - you will fall short
with 6 dots. Even in a teaching situation. Let's just spend one minute
in showing what would happen.

The teacher is to tell you how to enter a direct link to a file on your
system. As you all know, we have the backslash, splitting the different
parts (folders) of a file location. The teacher will keep talking about the
    "Backslash Character".
The blind person, though, will keep seeing two characters, and might
eventually figure this is what the teacher is talking about. Fine, no
problem, long as the teacher would be aware of the fact, and inform the
user right away. In a blind class, or with educated and pre-informed
teachers, all of this is no barrier at all. We do it all the time, when
teaching you how to write numbers and mathematics in 6-dot Braille.

Still, how many times do you think I have benefitted from sighted
friends, colleagues or schoolmates, helping me out when something
appearing on the screen bewilders me. Even many a time, I have had to
receive help over the phone. These people will not know, or even
comprehend the fact that Braille will need several characters to display
one symbol or icon. For me, who was introduced to computers in the
stone-age, and who has tutored a number of today's blind computer
personel, it is well enough. But I also see that a number of my students
would have got frustrated by having to figure what people were talking
about, when it does not have a distinguished representation on their
Braille unit. My wish for an 8-dot unit, hence is based on a wish for as
smooth an experience as possible.

So then, when do I see this kind of a unit being beneficial, even with
its current configuration?
Let me get my hands on it first, and I will tell you in its full terms.
For now, I do see a great benefit when comes to reading and writing SMS
on my cell phone. I do see it as a great unit, for simple and short
operation of my computer, like reading short mails, or looking up short
notes. Or, how about using it for smaller corrections of my constantly
mis-typed words. And if this is all I can afford, I guess I can learn to
live with it. Even the fact of it being small and hopefully
light-weighted, might be great news, comes to bringing it along for
meetings and travelling.

As for long-term usage, like reading this very message that I now am
composing, I do hold either a full-sized, full-fledged Braille display -
or the speech capability of my computer - will be a better choice; long
as the user could afford such solutions.

In summary, I welcome the BrailleMe unit as a low-cost supplement in my
daily activity. I do sincerely hope it will prove beneficial for those
who could not afford better, and I really hope it will open the doors
for many around the globe, who simply have no other choices. All I now
am anticipating, is the very release of this unit. Let's then, just hope
it is robust, and can with-stand actual usage in all climates, and from
users in all ages. Really hope for it not to be a fragile "don't use me
for anything" product. Have seen certain products with keypads that stop
working after a week, or batteries that will drain when not in use - all
that kind of sillinesses. Given it is a real work-horse, and they have
come up with functional, productively effecient ways of representing all
symbols in today's computerized environment, I really am excited to hold
one of them in my hand. And with less greedy dealers, it might well
enough be within the reach of everyone.

Welcome onboard!

visually impaired community.

I am excited to inform you that we are launching Braille Me,
world's most affordable smart braille display at USD 399/- on the
4th of January celebrating the World Braille Day. Let me give you
an overview of Braille Me.

About Braille Me -

Ever Since Louis Braille invented the wonderful script of Braille,
it has been adopted all across the globe empowering millions of
individuals. Today, after 200 years we are on the verge of a
revolution in Braille. Braille Me, is built to bring digital
braille to everyone immaterial of their geographical, economic or
lingual
background.

It has a six-dot 20-cell braille display, a Perkins-style keypad,
cursor routing buttons and few navigation keys.  It has
capabilities to work as a stand-alone editor and also connect to
smartphones and computers via Bluetooth and USB. It is a balanced
device with core features of a complex notetaker while having the
simplicity of a braille
display.

Braille Me has become possible due to two breakthroughs in
Affordability and multi-language. Braille Me is designed with our
patented Braille cell technology which makes the device
cost-effective by an order of magnitude compared to existing
products and supports more than 40 languages spanning all across
the
globe.

Re: Can I shorten pauses following punctuation?

Ann Byrne
 

Point well taken. thanks.


Ann
rote:

Hey.
I asked about something like this a week or two ago when I first joined the
list. Are you using the Microsoft voices? If so, they insert long pauses
after periods and commas -- the former, especially. There is no
configuration setting to change this and it isn't a nVDA issue. You will
have to modify the .ini file for the voice you use. I don't know if this is
exactly your problem. The person who wrote this blog is on this list, and he
pointed me here:
https://tspivey.wordpress.com/2017/09/10/speeding-up-the-microsoft-onecore-v
oices-in-windows-10/

The .ini file I had to modify is not exactly the same one as shown here.
However you should be able to find it, wherever it is on your system.

Subject: [nvda] Can I shorten pauses following punctuation?

NVDA's response is crisp and accurate when I move from line to line
or application to application. However, when I read a document the pause
before the next word is longer than I would like. Is there a place in the
settings to shorten the pause?

Thanks,

Re: Help with screen review command, please.

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


it depends on the program used. Some times you might have to use screen review commands along with review text commands. if it does not work that way object navigation will do the trick.


You may also need to know the mouse commands to route the mouse to that position.


The sections in the user manual are between 5 and 6 I think about 5.5 which covers screen review, object navigation etc.

Hi all,

How can you activate something when you land on it. This is an issue I'm having and can't figure it out. I unfortunately have to resort to the use of JAWS for this as I can route the JAWS cursor to the PC cursor, then hit the left mouse key twice to activate it. Is there a way to do this with NVDA?

So basically, the question is, how to move to the top left corner of the screen within screen review, and then, how to move to the end of the current line within review mode's focus.
