Re: working with tables in microsoft word

 

May I ask what version of MS-Word you're using as well as what version of Windows?

I'm presuming NVDA 2017.1, but if that's incorrect it would be helpful to know what version you are using.

Hi,

I am new to NVDA as I always have used Window Eyes hitherto so I am
only guessing the cause of your problem. Are you sure you have not
turned on the audio ducking mode? If you have then you should turn it
off by NVDA+shift+d. Hope this helps.

All the best,

Akbar

Re: Buttons Not Working on the Soundcloud Website

You said the pause button came up.  That means that the file would play if it could and the button works.  If you can't play anything on Sound Cloud, the problem has nothing to do with the screen-reader.  There is some problem on your system keeping your computer from playing the audio. 
 
These days, I don't know if Sound Cloud uses Flash or HTML5 or both.  Do you have Flash Player?  Have you tried more than one browser?  Which browser are you using?

Re: NVDA with lefthanded keyboard

Chris Mullins
 

Hi Ann
I think you should perhaps describe the layout of your clients keyboard. My
standard qwerty keyboard for example has the qwerty block of keys on the
left, to the right of that is the 3-pack above the 6-pack above a triangle
of arrow keys, on the far right is the numeric keypad. I've got a sighted
person to look at a left-handed keyboard layout on the net but it's not just
a straight forward reversal of my layout and there appear to be different
layouts depending on manufacturer. On one device, the numeric keypad is on
the left but it's got the large plus and enter keys to the left of the
numbers where on my keyboard they are on the right side. The mathematical
operator keys are in the reverse order too.

Cheers
Chris

remapping isn't necessary or advantageous. the numpad arrow keys, 2
and 8, don't duplicate the main keyboard arrow keys when NVDA is
running. They are used in screen review and in combination with the
numpad insert for object navigation. If you use numpad insert, you are
duplicating the main keyboard insert but you still must use down arrow
on the main keyboard.

Yes, but if his numpad is on the left side, then the capslock key
would be considerably closer to the numpad (and presumably the arrows)
than it would be on a normal keyboard, that's why the suggestion was made.
However, since the insert on the numpad works just fine, I don't see
any reason to modify the keyboard configuration to laptop or to use the
capslock key, just use the insert and numpad arrows to do things, it
should work just fine. The zero on the numpad doubles as an insert
key, so there should be no issues with reaching the various NVDA functions.
I don't have a keyboard with the numpad on the left, but I'd sure not
mind one, I'm (mostly) ambidexterous myself, and sometimes having to
reach over with the right hand is irritating, I use the capslock key
for that reason myself, so I can use whichever hand I'm comfortable
with at the moment, so I have both enabled myself, even though I don't
use a laptop keyboard or layout. It's all about what works for any
given individual, and that's the nice thing about many many programs,
including NVDA, there's usually more than one way to do things, which
means there's likely to be something that fits any given situation.

My student is currently using a keyboard with the numpad, including

Using capslock as the NVDA key. Is there an alternative to
NVDA+down arrow for sayAll? He can use the numpad keys, but that is
only the review cursor. Unable to use his right hand at all, he
would have to reach from capslock to the arrows to do this, yes?
He's a guy with lovely large hands ... but not quite *that large.

I seriously feel things are getting worse these days of access as web designers seem to out graphic each other for no apparent reason.
Luckily I don't fly anywhere but it does just show how fragile the accessibility we thought we had won can be.

Yes I've seen things like go and hit the download button when done, only to find no button but a link that says download. I fear this is the lack of distinction due to the person who wrote it not getting the difference from any point of view.
The other annoying one is some oddly coded landmarks that trap you as if the page has vanished, but a tab or some other command can get you out again till you accidentally encounter another black hole on the page.
Also on for example Paypal, I am sick of being told that it wants to run the outdated flash plug in, in fact the page isfar more accessible if you never run flash in the first place.

One of the things that drives me crazy as a sighted instructor for screen reader learners is the fact that there are now tons of websites that present what are links under the guise of buttons as far as the visual presentation goes. I will often say to a student, "Use the 'b' shortcut to jump around the buttons until you hear . . .," when that seems appropriate only to find that what appears to be a button in reality is not. It's getting even harder to tell now with the "flat look" being all the rage and there being no attempt to give visual 3D-ish effects to a button. Buttons appear as a non-photographic graphic rather than an imitation of a button with shading, etc., and effectively are like what used to be called hotspots (and probably still are when you're talking about different areas of a large photograph on which various areas can be activated like a button or link).

I went to that website and it is possible that there are some of those evil "looks like a button but is actually a link" situations, but I'd need a specific page to test that out.

Then you need to send a specific page. I checked with an older version of JAWS I have installed on this page:
https://daily.bandcamp.com/2017/05/15/girlpool-powerplant-review/
I used an almost current version of Firefox, perhaps one version behind. There were no play buttons. There are many clickable items for playing every track. That is the case with both JAWS and NVDA.

I don't recall now, which browser you are using but I seem to recall it's Firefox.

I don't use the laptop layout. Also, are you saying that JAWS sees a button and NVDA doesn't? It may be, from what you say that NVDA sees the item as something it announces as clickable. But it is important to be clear about whether NVDA announces button or clicable.

I don't know if this is a bug. It may be something that should be looked at but at this point, we have to be clear about what NVDA announces. Also, when you are looking at an album, does each song have a button in JAWS? In NVDA, each song has one or two clickable items you can press enter on to play. Perhaps the first clickable item that causes the entire album to play doesn't work with enter but the individual song items do.

The following applies to all browsers that use browse mode. If a button doesn't activate with the space bar, try enter. If neither work, try the activate command in NVDA, numpad insert and, while holding it, press numpad enter. That's the long key at the bottom right of the numpad. The bottom most key.
If that doesn't work, route the mouse to the object navigator's position, numpad insert and while holding it, numpad asterisk, the key immediately to the right of the numlock. Then try left clicking using just numpad asterisk by itself. Again, that is the key immediately to the right of the numlock.
I'm giving these suggestions but their order isn't meant to imply which should be tried in what order.
Another thing to try is to move to the button, turn browse mode off, then try space bar and enter if space doesn't work.
Turn browse mode off with insert space bar. Turn it on again with the same command, insert space bar. You may use either insert.

Recently, I have had buttons not be shown with Firefox 53 on the Chase and
PayPal web pages. I have switched to the Chrome browser. You might try a
different browser.

Hello:

I notice that on some websites buttons don't work with NVDA. For instance,
on the music website bandcamp.com, one can play songs and albums. However,
when I prebbs a play butson with NVDA nothing happens. I still use JAWS
infrequently, and when I recently tried JAWS with bandcamp.comeathe play
bustons worked just fine. Is this a bug in NVDA that should be reporsed, or
must I change any specific settings? Thanks so much for any suggestions
and/or assistance.

Regards,

Daveed Mandell

I since yesterday have things spoken that are not meant to hear and not sure how to overcome this.

 

I am running a full virus scan as first point of illumination.

 

What happens is when I do a      alt tab from one window to another somewhere I hear something like tash switching. But if I stop at that point it opens the next window.

 

I hear at random announcements like “drag your folders here” or “new” and other things that I can’t remember for now.  This is often heard when arrowing up or down through my files or emails etc.

 

I even tried maximising the window and thus haven’t made a difference.

 

Im using Windows 10.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Craig.

 

 

Cheers Craig

So what do I do?

Please, as has been requested by myself and Gene, provide a specific page so that we can all, literally, be testing on the same page at the very least.

I've got JAWS 18, Window-Eyes 9.5.4, and NVDA 2017.1 on my machine as well as Firefox, Chrome, Edge, and IE11.  It's really handy to be certain that we're all looking at exactly the same page as a starting point.
