What version of firefox are you using?


Ask since been doing quite a lot with firefox 55.0.2 here, with no issues with NVDA, and, also under windows 10 creators 64 bit, etc.?


Stay well

Re: question

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


under the keyboard settings is the extended insert key checked? Here I have all 3 checked. I just tried it with the extended insert key with the others ctrl key + either up or down to ajust the volume

It worked nicely a little bit different but could be done with the one hand.


I guess i am just use to using 2 hands to do the same job.


by the way is your keyboard a full qwerty keyboard? I have seen machines that might have 2 insert keys or 2 extended insert keys but do not know what the second key is for unless it does the same job.The extended insert key on my qwerty keyboard is the zero key. maybe you are pressing the wrong one? or do you have it marked?

I am aware that I have to press it twice, but the problem is that it doesn’t announce on or off, it just peeps.

Hi

 

You are probably aware that if the caps lock key is selected as a modifier key it has to be hit 2 times to turn caps lock on and two for off..

 

if it is selected as the modifier key then it would be that key and say the letter N to get into the preferences of nvda.

 

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 I might then put that key on to do it then turn it off.

Hi list

Can someone help me to figure out this problem please?

On my laptop I use the sticky keys to be able to use the keyboard with one hand, but since I started to use the n v d a, I am meeting this problem. ?

Since I started to use the capslock as n v d a, now I can’t use it to write a capital letter, as usual, if any n v d a programmer can help me to solve this problem I would appreciate it very much.

Thanks in advance

Perhaps it has something to do with the 32bit and 64 bit versions of firefox but i'm not sure

Couldn't that be a bit risky? What if you was to hit that button, not knowing where it would take you, and you'd then land on a fishing website, or something with malware? I mean, OK. I agree whole-heartedly that the odds of that occuring are very much slim to none, but, don't discount it.

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

Re: question

Gene
 

I'm not sure what you are asking.  With sticky keys on, in the setting you asked about, first press numpad insert.  Then press control.  Then press up or down arrow.  the rate will change. 
Then do all of the steps again.  Numpad insert, then control then up or down arrow. 
 
If you used the caps lock key, the same procedure would work.  Press caps lock once, then control, then the up or down arrow.

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.

I am aware that I have to press it twice, but the problem is that it doesn't
announce on or off, it just peeps.

If there is a way of how to do it announcing it,

Can you please explain to me how to do it?

Thanks in advance

Anthony

Hi



You are probably aware that if the caps lock key is selected as a modifier
key it has to be hit 2 times to turn caps lock on and two for off..



if it is selected as the modifier key then it would be that key and say the
letter N to get into the preferences of nvda.



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
I might then put that key on to do it then turn it off.

Hi list

Can someone help me to figure out this problem please?

On my laptop I use the sticky keys to be able to use the keyboard with one
hand, but since I started to use the n v d a, I am meeting this problem. ?

Since I started to use the capslock as n v d a, now I can't use it to
write a capital letter, as usual, if any n v d a programmer can help me to
solve this problem I would appreciate it very much.

Thanks in advance

Anthony
