Re: NVDA and desktop keyboards without Home and End keys

Shawn Bever
 

Hi Tyler,


I've got the K480. I had someone look at it for Home and End keys and they said it doesn't have them. Where are they? On my android, I just presss the function keys without the FN key to get what android functions are available, like F4 works like the Back button on my Samsung Note 4. What is the utility you spoke of to reverse the function key behavior on the PC?


Thanks,

Shawn

To add to this, some keyboards also hide the function keys (F1-f12) behind the Fn key.
I find this far more annoying.
As an example, I have the Logitech K480 which does this. I can reverse it with a utility, but it needs to send this command to the keyboard each time the keyboard is connected.
As far as I know, I can't use this keyboard with my phone with proper function keys.

Also, my keyboard only has Home, End, Page Up and Page Down in the PC layout, not the mac one which switches keys around for mac/iOS compatibility.

Hi Shawn,

Usually these smaller keyboards work similarly to laptop keyboards in
that they may have an "Fn" or function key, usually near the bottom
left. You press the Fn key with something else to access features that
a full size desktop keyboard would have a key for. So there will almost
certainly be a way to access "home", "end", "Page up" etc functions, it
might just involve pressing two keys.

The other thing you can do with NVDA on such a keyboard, is to use
laptop layout, which replaces many commands which expect a full size
keyboards with commands which are likely to be easier to access on a
smaller or laptop style keyboard.

Personally, unless you really want a compact keyboard for travelling
etc, I'd tend to stick with a full size keyboard, but of course if you
also use a laptop and are used to the laptop layout, then it might not
be as big an issue.

Quentin.

The question is, can a keyboard without the 6-pack be made to work

Hi Quinton,


The keyboard I'm looking at is the Logitech K780. I wanted this board because it is a multi-device board. It's a bit more compact than a standard desktop board, and it is very quiet (unlike the K480)    and will work with everything, PC, Mac, android and Ios.

Re: NVDA and desktop keyboards without Home and End keys

Hi Brian,


Yes, the keyboard has a full numeric keypad, it's the Logitech K780. Question is, how do I get these to behave as Home, End, Page up and so on for editing functions instead of behaving as NVDA navigating commands?

Shawn,

         Did this keyboard also not have a numeric keypad?  On most keyboards, including some full sized ones, where there is no 6-pack of "hard keys" for the functions you name these are a standard feature on the numeric keypad when number lock is off.  The general configuration is zero - insert, decimal point - delete, one - end, three - page down, seven - home, and nine- page up.  two four six and eight are the down, left, up, and right arrow functions, respectively.

         A great many regular desktop keyboards work this way, most, I'd say.

If you install Mingw64, you can run pacman -S irssi
and thereby install the IRSSI IRC client, which works well in the Mingw64
terminal window.

Another option is an ssh session with a Linux machine, of course, where you
can run IRSSI under GNU Screen or under Tmux.

hi how do you adjust that processor speed on a desktop computer?
What I mean is where do you go and find this on your system and can someone do this on there own or do they have to have someone that knows what they are doing go in and adjust the processor speed?

Hello,

after my old Windows 7 Machine gave up the ghost I had the fortune to
have a spare laptop to hand running on Windows 8.1. This seems to work
quite well apart from when I select a programme, say either Firefox or
Thunderbird. I can access these programmes well enough but for reasons I
do not fully understand when selecting say Thunderbird it will repeat
Thunderbird 4 times before shutting up and allowing me to start using
the selected option. I assume that I have made an error when setting
this machine up and am at a loss as to what setting is causing this

On a fast say four core machine, this only happens when a windows update is installing or dropbox is busy doing an update as both of these things pinch a lot of processor time and memory access time.
If the effect goes on all the time I'd also expect huge lags in the file list scrolling in explorer, which is another process that gives away the fact that something is running slowly.
Might be an idea if its a fast machine to check the idle speed settings in windows for the processor. These, on some laptops seem to be set very low and do not rise it seems as quickly as one might wish when the system gets loaded. You can customise the idle speed of the processor in a scheme and I always go for 100 percent if its a desktop.

I don't think that is what is being described.  Evidently, when a program opens, the name of the program is repeated a number of times before the program can be worked with.  My question, and noone may know, is if this makes any practical difference.  In other words, even if the name of the program weren't repeated a number of times, the program might still not be able to be worked with for the same period of time or about the same period even if this repetition didn't occur.

In other words, we don't know if this repetition occurs while the program is opening or after it has opened.

Re: All in one laser printers that work with NVDA

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

Actually, and this is a very broad statement. Normally a standard driver in windows can be used rather than the bespoke one that comes with the printer. It can, then in the main be all done through windows with no need for the special software at all. Of course things like toner low warnings and the like could get missed, but one might hope that in the main the basics are configurable from windows, otherwise how would any software use the printer if it needed some settings to be altered?

I do feel that manufacturers are being a bit daft when they only give instructions on how to do things from the touch screen, when in reality in most cases there are other ways.

Having said that though, the ones to watch for awkwardness ar those which operate on the network directly, either using wifi or wired. My experience has been that a good old usb printer plugged into a computer gives far fewer grey hairs to the operator be they sighted or not!

After all any old pc running windows 7 cast off from a friend can be used as a server on the network which is now what I do with my hp.

I think there are still printers out there which do not have lcd or touch screens so go for one of those, but you can still find any additional software is very patchy access wise.

Hi everyone,
I am currently looking for an all in one laser printer. I purchased a printer a few months ago, but it is not accessible and requires you to do everything through the LCD screen and the menus. Even the software to install it onto my computer is not accessible, so I cannot even use it with my computer. Does anyone know of an all in one laser printer that is accessible? I don't mind if I can't use the functions on the printer it's self, but as long as I can install it on my computer and use it that way, that would be great. I would like it also to be capable of wireless printing with my iPhone, but but it doesn't have to have that capability. I just need an accessible printer that will work with NVDA and that is a laser all in one that does both scanning and printing.
Thank you,

Well, what is the issue with espeak new generation. I have to say I do not
notice any  problems that cannot be sorted by a few dctionary  changes, but
that of course is in English.
 I think they will be missing out on a lot of functionality if the version
of nvda is sleft old.Much better to report the issues in espeak on an nvda
ticket and get it fixed.

Having said that, just trying it quickly with a portable version of the old
nvda. 50 seems to work ok, but may have some issues that only show up in
some cases.

Re: All in one laser printers that work with NVDA

 

Well if you want something that just works any network unit will do it.
I have a now old hp laser jet pro 1212nf mfp unit.
Its got ok scanning not the best but second to best for a mono laser, same for copy,a fax which I never used and such.
The software on it is not the latest and you will have to fiddle round with the software from the website, but as long as you find the right button and you can get used to it I had to, the software itself just runs, you will have to say no to the servey and other spyware but it just works.

Re: about firefox 50 and compatibility with previous versions of nvda

 

Just use the latest version.
If she can get the older version well.
To be honest I got used to 16.4, its still a bit ergggh but its not that bad, a lot of the really bad stuff is gone the real thing is I really don't want to have to copy the old data back.
If she doesn't want to, she can download any version of espeak of sourceforge and just install it with the voices she wants and use that.
Ofcause the actual sapi and non orgmented espeak is a bit harsher.

myself, even i tried nvda 2015.4 with firefox 49 without any problem.
but remember that in the list i heard about some incompatibility of
nvda with firefox 50 before nvda version 2016.4
could you please help me in this regard?
thanks so much and God bless you all!

But have you compared Firefox with other browsers on Youtub e?  And are you talking about browsing the site or a problem that occurs when something is streaming.

Well, what is the issue with espeak new generation. I have to say I do not
notice any  problems that cannot be sorted by a few dctionary  changes, but
that of course is in English.
 I think they will be missing out on a lot of functionality if the version
of nvda is sleft old.Much better to report the issues in espeak on an nvda
ticket and get it fixed.

Having said that, just trying it quickly with a portable version of the old
nvda. 50 seems to work ok, but may have some issues that only show up in
some cases.

Hi there: Is this for windows ten?

Thank you for that Brian,

that makes sense to me as a probable cause. Thank you, CJ.

Well sometimes this happens if the bit which is focussed  refreshes.
For example, when  I see items load into the system tray, but focus is on a desktop item, every time there is a new item in the tray, the desktop item is read again.
For example, when dropbox or google drive start it can take a while for their icon to appear in the tray, so if documents or computer is highlighted, it says it again each time the tray updates.
I notice it on windows 7 and ten, but do not have 8
On the other hand I do have a laptop running xp which when it shuts down has the falling tones of nvda twice.
The reason for that one eludes me.

So the answer for you is to discover why the desktop or whatever the item is, maybe the program window title, is refreshed more than once. some programs do this all the time, speed fan being a case in point. However not seen it on firefox  I've not tried the 64 bit version, but of course if the machine has toolbars and add ons in the browser its quite likely as each is initialised it repeats  much in  the same way as the  download library does if its open when a download is in progress.

Hello,

after my old Windows 7 Machine gave up the ghost I had the fortune to
have a spare laptop to hand running on Windows 8.1. This seems to work
quite well apart from when I select a programme, say either Firefox or
Thunderbird. I can access these programmes well enough but for reasons I
do not fully understand when selecting say Thunderbird it will repeat
Thunderbird 4 times before shutting up and allowing me to start using
the selected option. I assume that I have made an error when setting
this machine up and am at a loss as to what setting is causing this
repetition problem. If anybody has experienced similar problems along
similar lines to my experience could somebody please advise me how they
rectified this problem or what I have got wrong? Any suggestions and
advice would be most welcome. Thank you, regards, CJ.
