Problem in the latest beta of NVDA

Vaibhav Bhandari
 

Hi all,
I recently updated to the latest beta version of NVDA in which I have
been facing a really weerd issue.
The problem is that whenever I switch my listening device from my
earphone to my bluetooth headphones, the sounds that NVDA makes while
entering/exiting focus/brows mode, exiting NVDA and enabling/desabling
screen curtain can't be heard. I then have to restart NVDA for those
sounds to return.
I didn't face this particular issue in the previous versions of NVDA
so I wished to ask if it is a bta related issue?

Betsy, when using a laptop keyboard the only time you use desktop settings is if your keyboard has a numpad.
NVDA+1 on the keyboard is a good way to locate keys. you will still need some sighted help because not all keys are labeled in a way that NVDA will recognize.An alternative is to invest in a USB keyboard or a wireless one. I say this because you will find some of your NVDA key commands fun to accomplish because many of them will require using the FN key to accomplish. thus, my suggestion of using an external keyboard.

Thank you, Mareth. I will write this down and try it later today.


I hope you are doing well.

Try using the "home" and "end" buttons for top and bottom of lists.
And ctrl plus home hotkey for the top of a message and opened text

some type of lists as well if the 1st one didn't work.
As for the laptops Numlock key mostly
you can do it with pressing the "FN" key combined with another mostly
in the numbers row, and re do it to unlock its a toggle.
The best and easy way to find it is to invoke the NVDA's key helper
mode with hitting the NVDA plus number 1 to turn it on, and test your
keys, press the same hotkey to get out of it.
Happy new year to you and your family.

Chris, thank you so much. I just realized because of what you said that I needed to make sure the function keys were set to allow home to work with F9 and somehow they had gotten reset. Thankfully, I do not have to go into the bios to change their function but my daughter found that I just need to do escape plus F-end.


You all have been so helpful for me and I have taken notes to have in the future in case I forget since I have memory problems. Thank you so much to those who make this list available to those of us who need it from time to time.

Hi Betsy

The home key is used to move to the top of a list and this is a Windows key command rather than a NVDA command.  One of the responses mentioned the FN key which laptops use as a modifier key to enable the addition  of media keys and I suspect this is the issue here.  Try switching on NVDA keyboard help mode using NVDA+1 (on the number row not the keypad).  The keypresses will then be announced not actioned,so you can check if you are pressing what you think you are pressing as for example NVDA will say “Home” when you press the Home key.  If “Home” is not announced then you may have to use the FN key as a modifier together with the home key to make the home key function properly.  Press NVDA+1 again to return to normal keyboard entry mode. 

 

Many manufacturers set up their machines so that media keys are the default and you have to use the FN modifier to use, for example, function keys.  There is likely to be a BIOS setting that you can set to reverse this behaviour I.e. the keyboard will then behave as you are used to and you have to use the FN modifier for media key functions.  Note: you will require sighted assistance to access the BIOS.  

 

Cheers

Sorry, I should have proofed before sending. I meant to say Hareth.


Also, Hareth I wanted to let you know that the command referring to using control plus F9 and or F10 worked when I pushed the F-end key with that combination. You have made my day.


I am not technologically inclined enough to download the ad-on mentioned if I have to configure something so will use your method for now since it works. Thank you so much again, Hareth.

SPSS and NVDA

Hi,

I could not find relevant information on whether SPSS is accessible using NVDA.

Is there any person here has experience in using SPSS with NVDA?

Do you have any information on how I should do with it?

If you are shopping for a new version, check out amazon,  I go a legal version of 2016 office pro there for about 30 bucks.  They send you the key code, and you download the appropriate version from the m s store.In my experience, it is not an upgrade from 2010 to 2016   or any other version,  it is a new install  full prices apply,  others may  have a different  story.

Your version number suggests you have some kind of subscription and Office 365 is the only recent offerings I know of.  So, if that is the case you probably just need to login to your Microsoft account (via the File menu using that account management option) and update.  I did just that about 2 weeks ago.

 

Compared to 2016, the latest Office has been working better in my experiences.  Even the calendar is becoming more and more useable.

Your version number suggests you have some kind of subscription and Office 365 is the only recent offerings I know of.  So, if that is the case you probably just need to login to your Microsoft account (via the File menu using that account management option) and update.  I did just that about 2 weeks ago.

 

Compared to 2016, the latest Office has been working better in my experiences.  Even the calendar is becoming more and more useable.

  Happy  New year to you all. What! Brian has vision? I didn’t know that! Nor do I care that he does.  I thought he was totally blind like most people on the list.  The reason I thought he was blind like us is because he talks in a way that most of us blind users talk wile operating our computers.  Well, all the world to him looking after this list.

Hello everyone,

 

Here's hoping this message finds you well, and if you celebrate the new year, then happy early New Year!

 

I want to be very clear on an issue which has risen on this list. I want to make sure my words are plain, so if you don't understand, please reach out to nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io and I will help clarify for you.

 

Brian has, and will continue to have my full support as a moderator of this list. I have not seen any reason why he should not enjoy my support, and I have not had anyone contact me to state why my support is misplaced. Notice I did not say anything about Brian's vision status, gender, race, or anything else. I said Brian, as a human being, enjoys my full support.

 

As all of us are humans, and as the world has so many issues dividing us, please, let's not allow vision, or the lack of it, dictate how we treat one another. Discrimination takes many forms, and I believe, it is no better to discriminate regarding an individual's site than it is an individual's lack of it, or an individual's skin color, ethnicity, or any other characteristic. I take this seriously, as you all should, because we have many issues going on in the world today, and I definitely believe that whether an individual has sight or not should not be one of those issues.

 

If you have a problem with Brian's responses because of the fact that he has vision, then I suggest you learn to lose your narrow-mindedness and find a more welcoming list for your ignorance. You could, of course, learn to use your email filters. Nonetheless, I will not tolerate any discrimination on this list, and will treat such transgressions severely. This may mean loss of posting privileges, or a ban altogether, something I do not do lightly.

 

I hope that the incident that happened today does not repeat itself, yet be assured that discrimination is against the NVAccess code of conduct, Groups.IO rules, this list's rules, and my personal moral code, so I hope you will all understand where I am coming from on this.

 

Thank you for your membership to this list. We are nearly at 1,500 members, all from various cultures and walks of life, all from various countries. The one thing that binds us all is our humanity. Thank you for being you, thank you for being part of this community, and thank you for your time in reading this message and your understanding of this matter. I hope we can all respect one another in the way that every human deserves.

This is slightly odd as this is precisely hwat NVDA does for me in Outlook.
I have just tried it and if I press K the most recent email I have typed



whose name begins with K. Pressing the down arrow reveals other addresses
beginning with K.







I wonder if there is a setting in Outlook about keeping recent addresses you
need to turn on?



Having said that it is also true that this feature does not, for me at

go into the to button and search in there to reveal all my addresses in

Re: problems using NVDA with my new laptop

Hi Betsy,
Try using the "home" and "end" buttons for top and bottom of lists.
And ctrl plus home hotkey for the top of a message and opened text
file and ctrl plus end hotkey for the bottom of it, that works for
some type of lists as well if the 1st one didn't work.
As for the laptops Numlock key mostly
you can do it with pressing the "FN" key combined with another mostly
in the numbers row, and re do it to unlock its a toggle.
The best and easy way to find it is to invoke the NVDA's key helper
mode with hitting the NVDA plus number 1 to turn it on, and test your
keys, press the same hotkey to get out of it.
Happy new year to you and your family.

Hi.

This happens because NVDA, by default and with both keyboard layouts, uses the Numpad for object navigation, screen review and review cursor functions.

To use the Home, Page up, End, Page Down and other key capabilities of the Numpad, please download the add-on on this page. Read the instructions before you do, so you will be able to configure the settings to your liking.

Re: problems using NVDA with my new laptop

On my desktop computer, NVDA returns to screen review when restarted, evan if the configuration is saved with object review turned on.

I don't think I've checked.  I'll check and report.  My view is that the mode should automatically be changed to object review when you leave the window you are in but, though I've presented that view on the list before, there seems to be little or no interest in the change.

I can recall times when I've used review mode, forgotten to switch, gone on to do something else, and then I later realized that I was getting unexpected results because I hadn't switched back to object review mode.  I susp;ect that happens to a lot of people and they don't make the connection.

If I close  NVDA and reopen it, I am placed back in object review mode.  As another interesting point, when I apply the saved configuration command while in screen review mode, NVDA key r, I remain in screen-review mode.

Issue the command numpad insert numpad 1 until you hear no previous review mode.  If you changed review modes at some point, you may well have unexpected results.-
Gene, you may know, but does the last used review mode "stick" if you exit NVDA and start it again?  I honestly have no idea, but would have presumed that will switch it back to what's typical if you've never changed it, period.

George,

             I saw your longer reply as well.  Do you actually need to rip them?  I would think that once you mount this sort of ISO as a virtual DVD you should be able to play it directly from that virtual DVD directory.  But what I cannot remember is what "the beginning of DVD content" is named file-wise.

             One of the huge advantages in newer versions of Windows is that you can mount ISO files as virtual media and have Windows "play with it" as though it were that media itself.  If push comes to shove, I'd try mounting one, then opening the media player of your choosing, and trying to play that drive that's really not a drive but that Windows has set up as though it were upon mounting.

              Yours is an unusual situation, but it may be easier to resolve by doing little to nothing.  It will take some playing to see.
