Here's what the heck I! wanna know! Someone sent me a share link to a .rar file.

 

I had to use my phone, as I couldn't figure out how to download the dad blame thing. I would press enter on the download button, but as soon as I did, I'd hear the sound that NVDA plays like, when you hit enter on a text field on the web to begin typing. I tried down arrowing at that point, as I kind of remember it in the past giving a menu when you click download that would say save to drive, or download to my computer, but I couldn't even get that! to pop up.

 

So once on the page for a shared file, in Firefox, how in the heck do you then go about actually getting the download window asking to open with, or save to pop up as usual with any other file from any other source?

Hi!

You'll be satisfied of it. The sound is good, at the moment I also use winamp, because I can read the song's title also the singer's and the group's name. Popplayer has got also settings for announcing of any information but I can't make it to announce me the titles. But it supports subtitles.

Hi all,

Firefox and Chrome both announce the download status with NVDA. I must strongly disaggree with software just for the blind. Any blind person should want to use what the sighted use, because that is what you will have to use at work and so on. Being able to use every tool you have to use software made for the sighted should be the goal of every blind computer user. The blind must stop expecting the world to make everything just for the blind. The blind should only want to use everything made for the sighted. This is what is so beautiful about the iPhone. You are using Voice Over built into the phone, and you are using the exact same phone is your sighted friend sitting beside you. Wow, I find that so exciting, and I give thanks. How will the blind live in the sighted world and assimulate into the sighted world if everything is made special for the blind?

Hi, Brian,

 

The one thing I like about the webbie browser is that it takes out all the extra clutter that you see on a lot of sites. I'll probably use it mainly for downloading songs from my friend's oldies site. I do like that you can hear the percentages. It's just like how internet explorer 8 used to be.

        The reason that some of us use webie isthat it was designed for the blind and if anyone canshow me a brouser that does what I like webiefor then I will concitering changing my brouser but nvda still needs to have full support on other brousers and it is very important to know if your downloads are progressing or not because your internet may drop out on you and you may not know it if you can't heard the progress of your downloads.  You should not need any add ons to your brouser to do this nvda should be able to do this.  If it's true that webie will no longer work very soon then the developers should be working very hard and fast to make nvda work with all brousers and togive us access to the progress of our downloads like webie does.  I will keep on using webie until it no longer works at all.  Nvda is updates 3 times per year so why arethe developers not doing more in this area?  Maybe nvda could develope it's own brouser that would do what webie does there is no other brouser designed for the blind they are all designed by and for the sighted.

But the point, Brian, is that it will not continue doing so for much longer.  I get why people like the familiar and specific features such as the percentage announcement during download that you mention.  When Microsoft announces it's phasing out what had once been its flagship web browser they're not kidding, and the rest of the world of software developers takes notice.  You have to know that IE is a rapidly dying technology, as is anything built on it as a foundation.  You will wake up one day, and probably sooner than you think, and WebbIE will not be working just fine.  

Now is the time to start playing with alternatives to IE and WebbIE so that when that day comes you're not in an instant hard place.

The big problem with the way Google Drive shares files is that it insists you open them in its own manager window before you download them, which is a PITA no matter who is dealing with them.

Here's a bit of a "geek secret" that can, if you're good with copying and pasting, make it much easier to do a direct download of a file for which you've been sent a Google Drive sharing link.

Here, for example, is the native Google Drive share link for a PDF file on one of my Google Drive Accounts, in this case a PDF (though the type shouldn't matter):

                  https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B61gLtsXt4oqQnoyTnRDVGF4aDQ

the long alphanumeric string after the "id=" part of the URL is the FILE_ID.  If you activate this link the file does not directly download, but you go into the Google Docs presentation manager for the file, and you can download from there.  However, if accessibility is an issue, or you just want to create a link for a shared file that will directly download it if the recipient activates it, you will use a URL in this format:

                  https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=XXXX

where you paste the actual FILE ID you copied over the XXXX that I stuck at the end of the example.  Here's the one that allows direct download of the previously mentioned file:

                  https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B61gLtsXt4oqQnoyTnRDVGF4aDQ 

and when you activate it you should get your standard Windows (or Mac, if that's what you're using) save dialog unless you have your web browser set to always save to the same location, then the file will just be placed in that folder.

Hi Chris,

If you are using windows 10, there is an app built in called RAR viewer. When you hear the sound, tab to open with, and arrow to RAR viewer and press enter. A RAR file is a very unusual zipped file format. If you are not using win10, I have never known how to open a RAR file. You have to have the anniversary update of Windows 10 to have RAR viewer as a windows app that you can use to open that file.

Chris,

           Anything sent to nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io ends up in Nimer's inbox.  You'd be wise to send this request privately to the owner address in case Nimer happens to have "stepped away for the holidays."

           I don't think that anyone is going to share that e-mail address here and, even if they've got it, without Nimer's permission to do so.  Using the owner address gets your request where you want it.

I tried down arrowing at that point, as I kind of remember it in the past giving a menu when you click download that would say save to drive, or download to my computer, but I couldn't even get that! to pop up.
 
So once on the page for a shared file, in Firefox, how in the heck do you then go about actually getting the download window asking to open with, or save to pop up as usual with any other file from any other source?

Alt+tab around until you get to the share settings window. Everything should work as expected.

Uh, Gene, we're talking about Google Drive here, not Dropbox. The dl=1 or 0 is for Dropbox, not Drive, as far as I'm aware.

Before you follow the link, change the 0 at the end to a 1.  Then follow the link.  Paste the link as it is into the browser address bar.  Then move to the end and change the 0 to a 1.  Then press enter to follow the address.
 
The standard download dialog will come up. 
 
for this answer, I am assuming you received such a link as an e-mail message.  I am also assuming you see ?dl=0 at the end of the link.

How in the world did you figure this out!
 
This is fantastic! They still need to get this fixed, in my opinion, but that said, at least there is a way.

The big problem with the way Google Drive shares files is that it insists you open them in its own manager window before you download them, which is a PITA no matter who is dealing with them.

Here's a bit of a "geek secret" that can, if you're good with copying and pasting, make it much easier to do a direct download of a file for which you've been sent a Google Drive sharing link.

Here, for example, is the native Google Drive share link for a PDF file on one of my Google Drive Accounts, in this case a PDF (though the type shouldn't matter):

                  https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B61gLtsXt4oqQnoyTnRDVGF4aDQ

the long alphanumeric string after the "id=" part of the URL is the FILE_ID.  If you activate this link the file does not directly download, but you go into the Google Docs presentation manager for the file, and you can download from there.  However, if accessibility is an issue, or you just want to create a link for a shared file that will directly download it if the recipient activates it, you will use a URL in this format:

                  https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=XXXX

where you paste the actual FILE ID you copied over the XXXX that I stuck at the end of the example.  Here's the one that allows direct download of the previously mentioned file:

                  https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B61gLtsXt4oqQnoyTnRDVGF4aDQ 

and when you activate it you should get your standard Windows (or Mac, if that's what you're using) save dialog unless you have your web browser set to always save to the same location, then the file will just be placed in that folder.

I thought you were asking about Drop box.  I often read messages and don't read subject lines.  Disregard my last message.  It refers to Drop Box.
