calendars on Google

Dan Beaver
 

Hi, I am trying to setup a calendar that my wife and I can share. I am using the accessible view on Google but am not seeing a way to create a calendar or to share a calendar. I am using the latest version of Chrome as my browser and NVDA 2017.1.


Is anyone else doing this and if so how with NVDA?


Thanks.

I hope the moderators are seeing this because I did not unsubscribe from the list but the server lost my subscription. Seems strange to me that this would happen.

Unable to get to Embedded object when playing something in Google Chrome only

Dejan Ristic
 

Hi,


I'm no longer able to get to embedded objects by pressing O, and/or Shift O when I play a movie or audio. It happens only in Google Chrome. NVDA says: No next embedded object, and/or No previous embedded object.


When I try the same in Firefox, or even Opera, or even Avast! Safe Zone Browser, it won't fail.


Note:


I am regularly in the browse mode, for it is only possible to issue the embedded object-related command when in the browse mode.


Google chrome version: latest.


NVDA version: latest.


Operating system: Windows version: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (64-bit)


Note 2:


When I arrow up or down manually on a web page, I can find the embedded object area on the page.

ignore this for the moment.

And its accessible

 

 


Re: NVDA not pulling up list of webpage elements in Firefox or IE!

Gene
 

When you are in a text entry field, NVDA automatically switches to focus mode.  I strongly believe that such switching should not be done automatically by default and this is just one more illustration of why.  Blind people need to clearly understand when they are using which mode and automatic switching makes this more difficult for inexperienced users and makes it harder to properly teach what is going on and when to use which mode.

Hi Gene,

 

Thank you for your response. After doing some further testing using your recommendations I found the following;

-          NVDA commands work normally when pulling up the NVDA menu or reading screens.

-           NVDA will pull up the list of elements on a webpage once focus is not in a search edit box like that in Google.

 

So maybe having NVDA focused within the search edit box of Google and then trying to pull up the list of elements is not what I should be doing. If this is the case then my issue is solved as it works properly once outside such form areas.

So technically when in an edit box browse mode is off and therefore the ability for NVDA to pull up the elements list is unavailable.

Thanks Gene.

 

 

Many thanks,

 

Paul.

Does the insert work in other contexts such as the search command or read to end? 

 

Does the insert key work in other programs or when issuing commands such as insert n to open the NVDA menu?  We need to know if this is a general pproblem or limited to working with browsers or perhaps in browse mode where supported.

Hi All,

Using the latest NVDA on a Windows 7 machine. When using either latest firefox or IE11 on a desktop PC and try to use "Insert + F7" to pull up a list of elements on a webpage I get the "Enable carat browsing" message from both browsers. Is there something I need to change in order to bypass this message and get NVDA to pull up the list of elements such as links etc.
It looks like NVDA is not recognising the number pad  insert key or the  insert key in the group of six buttons.
No changes were made after the installation of NVDA apart from the synthesizer speed and volume.

Many thanks for any assistance.

Re: Is NVDA right for me?

Depending on what you want read, and how much trouble it is for you, you could use my clipboard reading program at:

http://www.softcon.com/files/clipspeak.exe

You simply run it, and it will read anything that has been copied to the clipboard, then it exits. No fuss, no mess.

It's not designed to do anything else, so if you're not up to copying text to the clipboard all the time, then it won't work for your purposes, but if that's all you need, it works quite well.

Hello group,

I have a cognitive impairment and can't read large amounts
of text easily without getting fatigue.

I am trying to decide between using Windows Narrator, NVDA,
JAWS, or possibly other programs.

Although NVDA is free and is supposed to be good, I'm not
sure it is the right program for me. Let me explain.

There are several people using this family computer, and I
don't want an intrusive program that will take over Windows,
and run in the background and bother them.

We all use the same log in, and I don't want people to have
to log on and off as different users. I myself don't even
want to use this type of software all the time when I use
the computer.

I personally just want a program that I can turn on and off
whenever I want to read out loud a specific piece of text
at any given time.

Windows Narrator is pretty easy to turn on and off, but its
extremely difficult to control what it reads out loud, it
just starts spewing without end whatever is on the screen.

I also don't know how the voice sounds in NVDA, but I don't
want something too robotic sounding.

So based on that I just want to use this program in a limited
way, is NVDA right for me?











Re: Accessible File Managers

I personally use winrar as my general file editor. It's nearly 100 percent accessible (despite claims to the contrary I've seen on this list), and it works like a charm, it even gives more information than the default windows explorer does, which is something I like a lot. It's not actually intended to be a general file viewer, but it fills that role very nicely.

It's limitations are minor, but it does have some, in that you can't right click, and say run as administrator, but simply pressing enter will launch the executable programs, and open other files with no issues.

I have the registered version (I registered rar many years ago, and bought two keys at the time, so I use it on my windows and my linux boxes, but registered or not, it still works very well. You'll want to learn a couple keystrokes (like alt-e for extracting archives), but the rest can be done quickly and easily from the menus.

Dear all,
In the wake of severe usability problems I am encountering with
Windows Explorer in the past several months with which I do not desire

simplistic interface would be preferable, since I perform tasks of
little complexity on the computer when it comes to file management.
I would appreciate any assistance.
Thanks.


Re: NVDA not pulling up list of webpage elements in Firefox or IE!

Does the insert work in other contexts such as the search command or read to end? 
 
Does the insert key work in other programs or when issuing commands such as insert n to open the NVDA menu?  We need to know if this is a general pproblem or limited to working with browsers or perhaps in browse mode where supported.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA not pulling up list of webpage elements in Firefox or IE!

Hi All,

Using the latest NVDA on a Windows 7 machine. When using either latest firefox or IE11 on a desktop PC and try to use "Insert + F7" to pull up a list of elements on a webpage I get the "Enable carat browsing" message from both browsers. Is there something I need to change in order to bypass this message and get NVDA to pull up the list of elements such as links etc.
It looks like NVDA is not recognising the number pad  insert key or the  insert key in the group of six buttons.
No changes were made after the installation of NVDA apart from the synthesizer speed and volume.

Many thanks for any assistance.

Paul.
