Re: How to interact with a notification dialogue

 

Hi,

For these, press Windows+Shift=V, then press Enter, which will perform the default action (in case of AutoPlay, it’ll give you a list of options to choose from).

Cheers,

Joseph

I have this same question. I generally consider myself an NVDA power user and a very proficient Windows 10 user but I can’t find an easy answer to this either and I’ve scoured various forums and websites looking for an answer.

Re: Using WhatsApp on The Computer

Hi


I will copy and paste it into this email just in case there are others who might use it.

this is still a rough draft so has not been edited. The stars in it are where the headings will go when it goes to be a web page.


I will go back in over the weekend and either edit the document if more is needed and or upload it. I probably need to refresh what I had done as well in it.

I will see also if it was my video camera etc not working with trying another or it might not just do it yet?


Just not sure how much to add some times?


*Using WhatsApp with nvda

*WhatsApp  for web
There is a app version which you can install on to your computer. The app version is the same as the web version in looks. Both the web version and app version can not do audio or video at present.
so you can only send and recieve messages on the computer.
You will need to go to the following web address at https://web.whatsapp.com/
Before you can use the web version you must have it setup on your mobile phone and already have a account setup. After you have signed into the app on your phone you will need to go to more options...settings....whats app web and double tap. This will also need to be done on the computer you are using.then you will have to scan in a Qr code. If the code needs to be refreshed while on the graphic use the NVDA key + enter key to do this. from the monitor for it to sign you in.
The computer must be on the same web address as above.

when you go to scan in the QR code The QR code is on the top right corner of the screen.

This can be a little tricky to do but after it scans the code what shows on your phone will show on your computer monitor.
You will neeed to do this from your phone to scan in the 'QR code.
The phone might vibrate when it has scanned in the code then mirror your phone.


*After you have signed into the whats app on the web
*Quick navigation keys that can be used with NVDA

You can use the following B for buttons, E for editable fields, F or form fields, H for headings, K for link,
For some reason on the buttons you can not use the space bar or enter key you need to use the NVDA key + Enter key on the numeric keypad to activate them.
On some sections the enter key will work You can use The up, down, left and right arrow keys along with CTRL + home for the top of the page and CTRL + END for bottom of the page.
From the page after you have logged in as you go down the page you will hear the following button status, new chat button, menu button, button but if arrowed up once you will hear clickable turn on desk top notifications, or arrow down you will hear Search or start new chat
  Just under it is a editable area where you can type.
Under the editable area you will also hear the following No chats
Keep your phone connected
WhatsApp connects to your phone to sync messages. To reduce data usage, connect your phone to Wi-Fi.
WhatsApp is available for Windows. Get it here.

I wrote a tutorial for the web version but have not put it on my website.


You will need a mobile phone with whats app on

You will need to change some settings so it points to the web version
and you will need to scan in a I think it is a qr code then it will sign
you in.

Your phone is used to do this but needs to be pointed towards the monitor.


Do not do my trick I do not have the monitor on and thought I had turned
it on maybe off then scanned the QR code but would not sign me in the
reason was the monitor was off as confirmed by the wife.

Guess that is life.


when you are in there you can use nvda to jump around and chat with your
friends and or read there messages.


At the time I did it I do not think it could do audio or video chats so
just left it on the computer. I was sure my camera is working but could
not see any settings at that time to add a camera//mike or maybe it just
can not do it as not part of the software yet.


I had just started using the mobile version so hoped it would work with
my video camera/mic on the computer.


It is a rough draft but think it was finished off but can not remember
if it covered groups as it could get confusing? depending how it was done.

I have not been back in lately to see if it has been added or tried
another camera/mic just in case.


Let us know if you want a copy of it I can post as is but a more
polished copy will go on my website when I get a little time free.

Just come in from getting the deck rails sanded, clean etc and have it
ready to paint which she is doing now.

Re: Converting JAWS Dictionaries

 

This needs to go to the Chat Subgroup, or private, but I have written a Windows batch file that can do this.  It does, however, require that you have installed Cygwin, which gives access to a number of common Unix/Linux utilities, and I'm using gawk to accomplish the task.

If anyone wants to discuss this further, please either contact me privately or start a new topic on the Chat Subgroup.  At the moment, what I have is NOT language specific, and since JAWS mixes all active languages (or at least can) in a single dictionary, using a field to differentiate which is which, there would need to be a way to filter entries only for a specific language (e.g. English, French) and those that are not specific to a language.

This discussion is way too "under the hood" to belong on the main NVDA group

Latest NVDA and Word 365

Marie <magpie.mn@...>
 

When I fired up NVDA this morning there was an update which I installed. Sorry don’t know the version but I always update so I assume it is the latest version not a beta.
I have a Word 365 document in my Drop Box document folder. I can open it as usual with Jaws 2020 but when I try to open it with NVDA, it will not bring up the document and I get “Drop Box Window” spoken by NVDA and there is absolutely nothing I can do from there. Harrowing or tabbing or pressing enter have no effect. All I can do is close it with the system menu or alt f4. I have tried exiting and re-entering NVDA and have tried re-booting the device but no change.
This is on my Surface tablet running Win 10 Pro.
When opening the same document with NVDA on my desktop running Win 10 home, it opens and functions normally?
Stumped in Reno! LOL!

Re: Torrents in QBitTorrent, or other accessible torrent clients.

JM Casey
 

I still use u/mutorrent.
It's nota great solution but if Qbittorent has a context menu or something you could always check the properties to make sure you know which one you are on. Then you can remember the sequence, select the ones you want and delete them.

Subject: [nvda] Torrents in QBitTorrent, or other accessible torrent clients.

Hi all. I'm back with another question.


I've been using QBitTorrent for torrents, but so far as I can tell, the list of torrents is inaccessible. So I've been using the web interface.
While that's accessible, my problem is this. Say I have, I dunno, twelve torrents going. I want to delete seven of them. In the web interface, I have to pick one, delete it, pick another one, delete it, and so on. Is there a way to do this in QBitTorrent itself, so I can pick multiple torrents and just delete them? Ideally it would also ask me if I wanted to delete the actual data or not.


Alternatively, can anybody recommend another client that's accessible? I was using utorrent/mu torrent, whatever it's called, but one place I check doesn't like it anymore because it has some sort of security issue or something. That's why I switched to QBitTorrent. It wasn't really accessible either. You'd think a list box wouldn't be that hard but apparently torrent client designers like to make them non-standard or something. So if anybody's got something really accessible, I'd love to know about it. Maybe that is QBitTorrent and I'm just missing something.


Re: notification staying in nvda

 

No, because its so infrequent and intermittant that it does not always appear.

Its appearing a lot more than it used to, but its something like once or twice a week to a month.

And I need to get it just right.

If a notification appears and I have focus, then it will go away.

It never seems to be a problem with disk notifications like autoplay and it may in fact appear but not be a problem.

99.9% of the time its not a big issue but it can happen.

Its been an issue about twice last year and once before that.

On another system I use it seems to be an issue a lot of the time but its not constant.

And you need to get the conditions just right.

The notification needs to appear at startup and not be focused, the notification needs to appear in the background and then come to the foreground and either you don't move it off or dismiss it or simply don't see it.

The notification needs to appear behind other windows, and not appear to the user, untill you close all windows or clear it from action centre.

Even then there is a 50% chance you won't see it and even then if it does appear it can close itself and be gone.

I am not sure how one would be able to replicate the condition and till now I have never caught a log fragment of it.

Is this an issue with windows or an nvda issue.

If this is a issue with windows does it exist on the 2004 rc at this time or not.

If not then  I will just update when it comes time to do so as usual.

Its not a big showstopper but I have had it appear on multiple devices, on builds of windows 10 from 1903 up and I have seen it on 18 xx builds to.

Not as much but it does happen.

I think it has to do with if the notification is focused or not but mostly I don't even dismiss the notifications or move them to action centre, I just clear them out after reading.

I guess I could just turn them all off but if I do that I won't get messages and that could be a problem in of itself.


Re: Torrents in QBitTorrent, or other accessible torrent clients.

Sascha Cowley
 

I personally use Transmission. The only issue I really have with it is that the only thing that is read in the torrent list is the torrent name. However, if you use OCR while the list item is highlighted, you can read the download progress.

Re: Using iTunes under Windows to transfer files to/from the iPhone

 

I've retitled the topic so it might get additional attention.  If someone can't help you here, consider asking on the PhonesForTheBlind group, as there are a lot of iPhone users there and iTunes has been discussed relatively frequently.

Hi, may someone could write this as an Add-on for NVDA? This would be really cool!

Pele,

           If you happen to know Linux/Unix, the awk command will be very easy to use to do the conversion.

A JAWS dictionary line has the fields, in order:  Actual word|Replacement Word|Language (0x09-English)|Synthesizer|Voice|Language (0 is default)|Case sensitive (0 - No, 1 -Yes)
For the JAWS dictionary, the fields themselves are DOT enclosed/separated, UNLESS, the actual word starts with a dot, in which case it's a comma used for the separator.

The NVDA dictionary file layout is simpler, and the fields are tab separated.  The first field does not have a separator before it.  They are arranged as:
Matching word or regular expression|Replacement|Case Sensitivity (0 - no, 1 - yes)|Type (2 - Whole Word, 1 - Regular Expression, 0 - Anywhere)|Comment (All comments are pre-pended with a #

For both dictionaries, there is a single entry per line of the file.

Have fun with it.  It doesn't appear to be particularly complicated.

Not sure as I purchased the Eloquence-vocalizer add-in last month.
