You could designate the caps lock key as your NVDA key instead of using the insert key.

Hi,
I'm using
vmWare fusion, and having a similar problem.
When I press "windows a, nothing
happens.
All other commands work.
I don't currently have an NVDA key, because
you can't use insert, under vmWare fusion.
What could I use instead?

Re: Window-Eyes Tutorials and Transition

Howdy Gene,


The object navigation versus navigation with the cursors in window eyes are the 2 different animals I was making reference to Until I started working with NVDA, I hadn't seen anything close.  didn't mean to confuse you mate.

Learning how to work with object navigation is not similar to anything in NVDA.  Screen review and flat review use different commands but they are similar to reviewing the screen with the Window-eyes mouse pointer in concept.  I don't know what you are referring to as two different animals.  It is important for any instructional material to help with the transition to make such points as I made yesterday.

Hi,


Totally understandable,  in my transition from window eyes to NVDA, I have found this out pretty much the hard way sighs. The concept is almost 2 different animals. Thank goodness we have the obj pad add-on. cheers Joseph! You've helped me tremendously with this part of learning NVDA!  I know longer have to drive myself mad!

If done properly, there isn't that much for a lot of users to learn and what does need to be learned, doesn't necessarily transfer from Window-eyes.  First, the most important thing to know is that as long as you learn certain commands, and not many, such as read title bar and commands like read current line, read current character and other review commands, you can do much or most of what you did using Window-eyes, unless you are an advanced user and make important use of such things as the Mouse Pointer in Window-eyes.  But a lot or most of what typical users use aside from screen review, read title bar, and certain other screen-reader commands, are Windows commands and program commands. 
 
For learning how to use object navigation and flat review, the user should learn them from instructional material or the manual if the user learns from manuals. 
there is some more or less equivalence when using flat review but none for object navigation.  In either case, it's better to learn the NVDA commands and even when learning flat review, not trying to remember things by saying, this key in Window-eyes did this when moving the mouse pointer and this key moves you in the same way using flat review.  That's my opinion.  My opinion is that it makes far more sense to simply learn how to move in flat review and how to activate using NVDA key NVDA enter and how to route the mouse to the navigator object or to the flat review position.  There is little or no exact equivalence in procedure in NvDA..

I agree, but this is a, "Get writing!!," situation for those who are bilingual [in a manner of speaking] in both Window Eyes and NVDA.

I don't fit this category and based on what I think I know about the number of bodies involved in the "nuts and bolts" of NVDA the staffing is probably not available to do this in house any time soon.

Re: epub format

Mallard
 

Yes. All these can read non-drm files. If you decompress the epub via 7-zip or similar software, you can extract an html which you can then read like a normal html file.

The problem is, however, that you can only read non-drm files that way.

Adobe Digital edition is, that I know of, the only software that will let you read epub and pdf ebooks with drm.

Re: Can I use NVDA with more than one user?

 

Yes you can, ofcause you will need admin access to load all the stuff you need.

I am unsure if windows works the same as linux in this reguard.

In theory you need to install nvda on the system with the admin account but then in theory I think you should be able to configure to your hearts content as long as its not system settings if you need to do that you need the admin account and password or at least I assume so.

Ever since I pulled out of uni and school, I have not needed to do any advanced anything.

My workstation has a single admin account which I do everything on and so do other units that have passwords on.

You can definitely read epub ebooks with Adobe Digital Editions, which is free, and can be downloaded from Adobe's website (or from my Dropbox, which is probaly easier - I'll pass the link at the end of this message).


Firefox has an add-on. I think it's called epub reader, but I don't know whetehr it was updated for more recent Windows versions. I haven't used it for years.


If you want an excellent, but not free app, I'd advise you to investigate Qread at the following link:


https://q-continuum.net/qread/


I also read epub ebooks on my android smartphone. There are a number of more or less accessible apps for that, which I'll be happy to discuss with you off-list, if you're interested.


Here's the link to downloade Adobe Digital Editions from my Dropbox. Unfortunately I only have version 3.0, but it's quite enough. If you decide to install this version, it'll prompt you to upgrade later.

Re: epub format

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

As I've posted before (in several places) non-drm epub books are simply html files with other files included to make navigating the books easier.  You can simply rename the epub to .zip, extract it, and read it with the web browser of your choice, no special software required.

Doing it this way won't give you the navigation features, (table of contents, previous/next, and so on), but it's a quick and simple way to read the books without having to install extra software for the job.
