Re: adding an additional site to get weather from in weather plus or creating another add-on

I don't know if the Braille part of the site was corrected.  When did you check last?  As I said, in an earlier message, the mobile part of the Weather Underground site has worked properly for three or four weeks.

Hi, Dan,

 

I noticed that about the braille weather underground site too. It does stay stuck on the same date so now I use the noaa site.

Yes, I just checked it a little while ago and it is working correctly for me again now.


Thanks for the tip.

Hi,


Yes, I have been using that one too since the underground site stopped working for me.  However, I also found that the mobile.weather.gov site is less cluttered and easier to use than the normal NOAA site.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t work.  It should in my opinion give the option if you have 5 unread  messages in your inbox and your going through your folders and you get to inbox it should say 5 unread.  It doesn’t this is using 2010.

Anybody out there using NVDA with Office 2003?

 

I have a report from one of our users saying that Outlook 2003 freezes when opening a message. Sorry but at the moment no time available for gathering logs.

 

Our solution for now is to reinstall 2017.1 and switch off automatic updates.

 

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Re: installing NVDA on a machine with Window-eyes already installed

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

You can install as many screen readers as you like, as long as you don't run them at the same time (something I actually do from time to time for various reasons) you shouldn't have any problems. Cobra, NVDA, jaws, and window eyes can all be installed on the same machine, and all will read just fine provided they are only run one at a time. Running multiple screen readers simultaneously does work, but sometimes causes conflicts either with keystrokes, or screen access, but it is a nice way to check that your screen reader of choice is seeing everything it should.

Good morning list,


How much hassle am I asking for if I install NVDA on my laptop before uninstalling window-eyes? I'm hoping to do a soft transition but want to avoid software conflicts.


I would never actually run these simultaneously, obviously.


Suggestions welcome.


Thank you!

Re: adding an additional site to get weather from in weather plus or creating another add-on

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

Personally, I'd rather have a plugin that uses noaa weather, as it's the most accurate weather site I've ever found, and (fyi) a lot of news services get their weather from noaa anyway, so why not go ddirectly to the source?  I'd write it myself, but my python skills aren't really up to the task.  Add to that, the fact that it only works in the U.S., and you'll see why I've not really made it much of a priority.

I can provide php code to anyone wanting to do a python conversion, since I wrote my own retrieval code years ago, and still use it today (although no idea how much longer it will work, since they've been threatening to change the interface for the last year or so), but either way, it will be a nice start.

Hi,


I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this.


When  the weather Plus update dialog pops up and I do not immediately notice it it seems to take control of the keyboard or something.  If it is up in the background and I am on another window NVDA doesn't behave very well.  I often notice this because keyboard commands start failing to do anything.


If I cycle through the open windows and find the weather Plus dialog up I can close that dialog and then NVDA works just as it should.


I am wondering if the Weather Plus update dialog is using some kind of interface that is causing this.
