Re: Bug. Can you confirm? NVDA can't read google chrome settings for extensions

Gene
 

Here is an article that discusses how to assign shortcuts by using the Chrome extensions dialog. 
I'd have to read the article again to try to understand what else was said more clearly.  there was an extension for this purpose but it has been removed from the Chrome Store or Google Store, whatever it's called. Mention is made of something evidently being removed starting with version 53 but I'm not sure what.   
It could be another way to do this but I'm not sure if it was clearly stated in the article.

I doubt this is an NVDA problem.  Do you have another screen-reader such as JAWS?  I doubt another screen-reader would read the page either.  Even after all these years, Chrome still is not fully accessible though, it's mostly accessible.

Subject: [nvda] Bug. Can you confirm? NVDA can't read google chrome settings for extensions

Hello,
I'd like to have some hints or just a confirmation that NVDA has the
following problem:
open google chrome.
- go into address bar and type:
chrome://extensions/

You have the extensions page. Go to the bottom of the page and you
should find a link called "short keys", I don't know in english, in
italian is Scorciatoie da tastiera, anyway it is a page that allow you
to assigng a keyboard shortcut to activate an extension.
Just to make an example, if you are using hoxx vpn extension, you can
decide to activate it with a ctrl-shift-h, instead of going into
toolbar, than search extensions, right lick, etc etc.
You can define hotkeys for your extensions!

The little problem is that NVDA is not able to read that page.
Absolutely nothing.
Can you give a try and tell me if you have the same problem?

If yes, I will open a ticket about that.

LOL, you're welcome. I didn't even think to look at Wikipedia. On my way to do so now. Maybe one of us can eventually answer the NVDA accessibility question after we venture into guinea pig mode for a bit.

Heh, interestingly enough, wikipedia has a page specifically for nntp readers.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Usenet_newsreaders

I don't know which ones (if any) are accessible, but that might be a good starting point.

I've never used nntp on windows, only on linux/unix, and I've used programs like trn and nn, and (in a pinch pine).  There is a windows version of pine (now called alpine) which works fairly well, and it can handle nntp servers, so that may be an option if you absolutely can't find anything else.  I've not delved into the usenet groups for many many years, but I sure do miss them, perhaps this will give me the insentive to get involved with them again.  Thanks for the inspiration. :)

Re: Piriform Recuva,v1.53.1087 recovering folders using nvda?

Gene
 

I don't know if blind or sighted users can select multiple files for recovery.  It appears that recover file structure has nothing to do with recovering an entire folder just by clicking on the folder name.  All that recover file structure appears to do is to restore a file to the folder it was originally in.  See this discussion:
 
I don't know what other recovery programs are available and what they can do.  You may have to pay to get one that can recover entire folders as you wish. I don't know if recovery programs can be asked to do that.

Re: Bug. Can you confirm? NVDA can't read google chrome settings for extensions

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

That must be an additional plugin you're using to get that link at the bottom. I just had my son check, and there is no such link on my copy of chrome. I only have 5 plugins, only 3 of which are active, and other than a link at the bottom to get more plugins, there is no link anywhere to assign keystrokes to activate existing plugins.

I'm using Version 56.0.2924.87 (64-bit)

hope this helps.

Re: Piriform Recuva,v1.53.1087 recovering folders using nvda?

 

Hello I wanted to give a example of how I am wanting to restore things.

lets say that I have a folder called audio stuff

in recuva

it shows all the files indevidually and there folder paths
what I am wanting to do is choose the folder eg audio stuff and have it restore all the files that it was able to recover in the audio stuff folder
 I have over 2000 files and I am trying to avoid having to go threw each indevidual files just to find the ones that go in the audio stuff folder fore example.
I also did set recuva to keep the folder structure
so it is set to show up that way hope this explains a little on what I am trying to accomplish.

Re: [Off topic] Raspberry Pi and accessibility, where to start?

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

There is a version of windows that runs on the raspberry pi, but it's not a full-blown windows version, it's called windows IOT (meaning the internet of things), and it doesn't have the full windows libs available, so many of the standard windows programs won't work, if you're going to develop for windows IOT, you'll need to refer to the specific microsoft documentation on what is and is not included. I've tried it on my pi, and although it works, there's no screen reader built-in, so physical access from the pi is problematic. It can be made to work via ssh and the like, but it's a bit of a pain. I've not played with it enough to determine if a custom screen reader could be made to work, though I suspect building a screen reader for windows IOT would be considerably easier than making one for standard windows. I've not dug into this enough, because it's not currently one of my areas of interest, but if I can find a compelling case for doing so, it may be something I'll persue.

Think there might also be a way to run a version of android OS on it, but, not too sure about that either.

Re: Bug. Can you confirm? NVDA can't read google chrome settings for extensions

Simone Dal Maso
 

ok, I suppose it is not a NVDA problem, but someone should open a
ticket in google chrome...
I tried with NVDA, Jaws, Narrator and yes, also ChromeVox!
Nobody can read absolutely nothing.

And if Chromevox is not able to read Chrome content... ok that
ChromeVox is not able to read the menu bar of Chrome, that is quite
silly, but it is not a NVDA issue.
Anyway I think I will open a ticket on NVDA community, then NVDA
developers will advise Chrome accessibility team.

Same thing here, I can't read the page either, although I viewed the code
in the frame and there were references to items being hidden but my web
coding skills are minimal so I don'tknow if that is part of the issue or
not.

Cheers
Chris

While it read the extensions page to me, if I open the keyboard shortcuts
page, it doesn't read anything to me either.


Stay well

You have the extensions page. Go to the bottom of the page and you
should find a link called "short keys", I don't know in english, in
italian is Scorciatoie da tastiera, anyway it is a page that allow you
to assigng a keyboard shortcut to activate an extension.
Just to make an example, if you are using hoxx vpn extension, you can
decide to activate it with a ctrl-shift-h, instead of going into
toolbar, than search extensions, right lick, etc etc.
You can define hotkeys for your extensions!

The little problem is that NVDA is not able to read that page.
Absolutely nothing.
Can you give a try and tell me if you have the same problem?

If yes, I will open a ticket about that.

I doubt this is an NVDA problem.  Do you have another screen-reader such as JAWS?  I doubt another screen-reader would read the page either.  Even after all these years, Chrome still is not fully accessible though, it's mostly accessible.
