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

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Yes one use might be, for example to make a digital tv system that talks out of a pi and some dongles for the local tv and maybe the internet catch up channels. Of course often the most expensive part for makers of such speciialist kit would be the boxes they go in and remote controls etc. As unit volumes would make it still more expensive than a normal non speaking bit of kit from the high street.

The pi is a computer which is basically a circket board with a ram and
processor about the size of a credit card. They're very cheep, and let you
do some very specific things. You know, you can make a cloud server or a
home automation server, or build your own electronic device with a custom
chassey like an mp3 player or a telephone or something.

They are pretty neet, and the hardware is getting serious.

Best,

Erik

Re: Using the physical mouse with NVDA on some inaccessible Internet controls

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

If this is true, than somebody needs to tell dropbox. In the past they ave fixed issues quite quickly, like when the desktop client could not log in due to focus issues etc. it may well be that somebody over there has just made an authoring error. I would have thought though that flsh controls would be phased out as most sites that used these seem to be gradually using html 5 instead, which makes the links almost normal and not wthin an embedded object any more.

Subject: [nvda] Using the physical mouse with NVDA on some inaccessible Internet controls


I've seen a small number of messages on using the physical mouse with NVDA but I've never seen this sort of question discussed. I was looking at the Drop Box site a few days ago and I found that files can't be deleted working with the web site using a screen-reader and the keyboard. This doesn't matter for those using the program but I'm curious about the implications for other inaccessible controls and on whether deletion can be done on the Drop box site.

Accordingt to Drop Box help, you have to click the empty space to the right of the file name and a list of options will come up. I have no idea if a blind person can know when he/she is in the right place to click using a mouse nor do I know whether the options that come up are accessible using a screen-reader or a mouse.

I'm curious also about some flash embedded objects that can't be worked with from the keyboard.

Thanks for any information.

I might buy a mouse and play around if it seems more access can be gotten in some situations.

Re: Making the NVDA Key a "Sticky Key"

Jacob Kruger
 

Just tried it with windows own built-in sticky keys, and, it did seem to accept the NVDA key as a modifier key - so I could press NVDA key - numpad insert in this case - and then press letter T, and it read out title of window to me?


To invoke windows sticky keys - if you haven't come across this before, hit the left shift key 5 times in quick succession.

Internet Explorer should not be removed.  At least through Windows 8, I don't know about Windows 10, Windows uses certain aspects of Internet Explorer in other parts of Windows.  If you remove it, certain Windows functions won't work properly or perhaps not at all. 

 

You evidently have some problem that causes recent versions of Firefox not to work properly with NVDA or with Windows.  we don't know what the incompatibility is.  It may be a problem with your Windows installation, it may be something else.

And about the messages you can make filters for the messages of NvdA-mailinglist and this filter will be only for the messages from this group. If you are also member of any other group, you can do the same about the messages of the group you are. In this way you will have more place for the letters you receive.

Window-eyes isn't simpler than NVDA.  I don't know just what Narrator can do.  for your purposes, I don't know if it's any better or not.  Narrator may be simpler but that doesn't mean it will meet your needs.  I'm not saying that NVDA or Narrator will meet your needs or not.  I'm saying that I don't think you are looking at options in the right order.  I would think that there are e-mail lists and/or Internet forums where people who have dyslexia and other print disabilities can discuss programs they use to read print and they may be able to discuss how best to read whatever you want to read.  
 
I'm not saying that you won't decide to look into screen-readers after you try to get information about other means.  I'm saying that I think you are looking at options in the wrong order.  Screen-readers are intended for blind users and don't necessarily do things that you want done or in the way you want them done.

Cannot read much text without getting ill, but don't need to
navigate the computer.

I think the answers have pretty much covered it, right now
leaning towards something that might be simpler then NVDA.

Might need to learn how to really fine tune Windows Narrator
or learn more about Windows Eyes.

Thanks for the help!

If you are fatigued when reading long documents then a solution like text aloud may work better. If however, you need to navigate the computer by using speech, then NVDA is the way to go.

Re: problem is java acces brich

Dean Masters <dwmasters15@...>
 

I think there is a problem with the access bridge in general. I use Open Office and the latest version of JAWS but when I use the spreadsheet it freezes. JAWS support had me install the latest Java and turn the access bridge on and it worked fine until I rebooted my Pc. so they say I need to contact the access team at Java.

Re: accessible antivirus

Brenda <bjnite@...>
 

Plese don't take this conversation off list.


I'm glad you shared this to the list.  It is very valuable to know accessible virus programs.  I don't see how this could be construed as advertising.


I have heard that Caspersky is now accessible once you can get it installed. If you do a google search for accessible virus programs with screen readers, etc, you should come upon an article by David goldfield about this.  After he had issues with Windows Defender not catching viruses he investigated and chose Caspersky.


I'm still hoping for more input from listers on antivirus programs that work well with NVDA and are highly rated in the sighted world or other folks experiences with Caspersky which is a good program.


thanks for sharing.

Hello,
the program is subscription-based, and there is a free 30 day test period.
It scans for viruses, worms and the like in addition to the wider definition of malware including adware and spyware.
Here is the link: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/antimalware/?id=14510978
So much in the interest of sharing. I think any follow-ups should be discussed off-list since this is going way off topic and may easily be construed as me running an ad campaign, which I am not. ;)
Kind regards,

Hi where can you get this Emsisoft Antimalware from?
Also is it free or is there A charge for this program?
And how easy is it to set up and install?
Well it work with Jaws 18 as well?

Hi!
I use Emsisoft Antimalware. It's fast, scans for potentially unwanted programs (such as adware) in addition to general malware like trojans and worms, and has, to my mind, the best behavior analysis around, spotting backdoors from how they behave even if the file itself is unknown, to provide just one example. This goes far beyond what is usually referred to as detection by heuristics. Accessibility-wise most things I need are in the tab order but I find myself resorting to flat review sometimes.
Greetings,
Felix

Windows defender is already built into windows ten so you don’t need any other anti virus program

And its accessible

Re: Learning Programming

Juan Hernandez
 

Hmm, this is weird. I feel now more than any other time it is easiest to
learn how to program.

There are so many materials free and paid that you can use to learn to
program.

And believe me I know. I learned to program basic in the 80s, and that was
hard there was no real internet or anything like it. I had to have my
little brother read to me books, and I learned from that.


Best,

Yes, it does seem that learning to program from scratch, at least for the
blind want to be programmer, is difficult to do. I've even started to look
at older books, written before the use of Tools became so wide
spread. But here I run into slight compatibility issues. The New
Code today is slightly different from the code used even 5 years ago.

I'll keep looking.
