Re: third party rss readers

David Griffith
 

I am not sure what the issue is as you describe it but I may just not understand.
As I say when I open RSS Newsreader I cursor down to the feed I want to look at. I then hit Control R, this then automatically opens up a list of updated articles arranged chronologically with the newest article at the top of the list.  My experience is that there is no delay in opening the feed using this method. The number of articles displayed appeared  to vary according to the feed properties. Sometimes the latest 10 are shown whilst with other feeds more articles are loaded.
The Player does not automatically refresh but then as you in effect manually refress every time you look at a feed this does not in practice matter at all.

By the way the address for the webbie suite is, I am fairly sure
www.webbie.org.uk

In an ideal world for me, the feed would simply show me all new articles in chronological order, rather than my having to check each feed individually.  When last I tried the accessible rss client, I couldn't do this.

Okay, I remember you gave information on this Webbie suite but I can’t find it at the moment. I have been looking for a good replacement for both (one to do both or one for each) text/article feeds and podcasts. My paid for Qfeed just crashed yesterday and I can’t get it back.

Also, I am currently using gpodder for my audio and video podcasts but it is not accessible with NVDA so I have to use it with vision.

 

My main concerns for rss aggregators is that I can hide individual episodes that have been read/played and only show new episodes/articles.

Personally I am very happy with the RSS Reader Program provided free along with the other Webbie Accessible Suite of Programs.

 

There has been a recent slight tsimplification of the program to improve stability where I understand automatic Feed Refresh after the program has been loaded has been removed.

 

I do not personally find this a problem as all I do is cursor down my list of available feeds. I then hit control R which not only refreshes the feed rapidly but also open up the table of available articles in the feed automatically. then  I just  press enter on the Feed article and it will load in your browser.

Press escape in the article list and you will go back to the feed list.

Very simple but it works great.

 

I paid for the QFeed program from Accessible Apps but to be honest this Free program is far far more stable and fast at loading. RSS Reader has never crashed on me whilst this was a frequent problem with QFeed.  Also the support from Alasdair King is good whilst the support on problems with the paid for QFeed is non-existent.

FW: [win10] NVDA commands

 

Hi,
Came to the Win10 forum but the post pertains to this list, so please respond to the original poster directly (if you can).

Subject: [win10] NVDA commands

I am in the beginning mode of learning NVDA. My first impressions is it works pretty well. Being a long time Window Eyes user I am used to the commands for WE and not NVDA.
Window Eyes has a command I use quite often to search a web page. In WE control shift f is the WE find command. Is there a similar command in NVDA? Is there any kind of comparison chart showing WE commands versus NVDA commands?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Rosemarie,

Based on your description I'm fairly certain that it's not your address book that needs tweaking, but the display name associated with your e-mail account in Outlook.

I'm basing the following on that presumption.  To shorthand this if I list something like ALT+F, I, A that means hit ALT+F, followed by I, followed by A.

1. Open Outlook and hit ALT+F, I, A  which will put you in the Account Information Pane.

2. In Outlook 2010 it makes no difference which account you choose from the dropdown before the next step, so you'll have to choose it again anyway. So Tab to the Account Settings button and activate it, at which point you have to activate the dropdown for account settings (don't ask me why).

3. This brings up the account settings dialog.  What follows presumes you have more than one e-mail account set up in Outlook.  You'll be able to omit a step or two if you have just one.

4. The e-mail tab is open, which is what you want to deal with.   If you have more than one account, you will want to hit TAB six times until you land in the accounts list, then down arrow through the accounts until you get to the one for which you wish to make a change and select it.  You can skip this step entirely if you have only a single account.

5.  Hit ALT+A, which at this point invokes the Change dialog.  You should immediately land in the edit box for "Your Name" which is what you want to change so that whatever name you prefer is used as the prefix on your e-mail address in outgoing e-mail messages.  If by some chance you aren't sitting in that box then hit ALT+Y to throw yourself into it.  Edit as desired.

6. (Optional)  Check out any of the other account settings you might want to tweak.

7. Hit ALT+N to activate the next button, this will do a test of your account settings, which should succeed if the only thing you changed is your name.

8. After the test confirms that everything is OK, hit ALT+C to close the test dialog.

9. Activate the Finish button to close out the process.

Re: changing my name in the outlook address book

If you want to experiment with different programs, you'll save time and trouble if you simply leave the old program installed and set up and try the new program.  You don't have to remove Outlook to try Thunderbird or any other e-mail program.  And you don't have to remove any accounts.
 
You may want to make another e-mail program the default program or you may not but except in rare cases where there may be some sort of conflict between programs, there is no need to remove something while trying something else.

any buttons or no matter what I do to reply to a message or forward one.
fIs this the way the app is designed more just to read and delete etc.

I did also notice that when you typed in to the message of the body plus
the subject line there was no key echo, but would read back what you typed.

I was seeing if it worked or not as one of my hotmail accounts refuses

William, the following is a cut and paste from an accessibility central webpage (see here <http://accessibilitycentral.net/accessible%20email%20client%20mozilla%20thunderbird.html>;) regarding using NVDA and Thunderbird. Since the method suggested for what you wish to do involves object navigation I have to believe the instructions are recent:


*Using drag and drop with NVDA to rearrange column headers in
Mozilla Thunderbird *

If you would like to move a column from one area to another in the email header, you will need to tab from tree view into your email message list. Next put NVDA into object navigation mode. Use the NVDA key + the number 1 on the numeric keypad to do this.

If I wanted to move a particular column to another location (IE before or after the current column) I would do the following in the header of the email.

From the message list, I would press the NVDA key + the number 4 on the numeric keypad until I heard the name of the column I wanted to move (for example Status). I would then press NVDA + Numpad divide (above the number 8 on the numeric keypad) to route the mouse pointer there. Then you would press Shift + Numpad divide again to lock the left mouse button. Press the NVDA key + Numpad 4 again a number of times until you hear the name of the column immediately before the column I want to move the selected column to (for example next to unread). Press the NVDA key + Numpad divide to put the mouse pointer there, and press the Shift key + Numpad divide to unlock the left mouse button.

Please note: You can also use the NVDA key + the number 6 on the numeric keypad to move it back the other way then unlock it in that position.

Now, when you arrow down or up your messages, you will notice the difference when NVDA reads it out.

Just a quick question. In windows 10 in the mail app is there a way of
replying to a message or even forwarding it on? I can not seem to find
any buttons or no matter what I do to reply to a message or forward one.
fIs this the way the app is designed more just to read and delete etc.

I did also notice that when you typed in to the message of the body plus
the subject line there was no key echo, but would read back what you typed.

I was seeing if it worked or not as one of my hotmail accounts refuses
to work now and no matter what I do in mozilla thunderbird to make it
work is no longer working.

Hi Salva,
Here is a link to my text tutorial for the mail, people, and calendar apps, and the second link to an audio tutorial that a friend did. You will have two tutorials. My written tutorial goes into a lot more detail about using the mail, calendar, and people apps together to get one email client experience.

Hey Gene,
The neat thing is that the commands are a lot like the ones in Windows live mail. With NVDA, it is so much better to use the review cursor commands instead of using the arrow keys. NvDA does not say what you type in the mail app. Work needs to be done with NVDA to work in the mail app as good as JAWS does. JAWS works great! For some reason, NVDA does not work as well as it use to in the mail app. I hope they can make those fixes in 2016.4.

Re: how do you perform these updates

 

for java.
an easy way for us is by typing in the following commands
iexplore www.java.com
click download
click aggree uncheck any add boxes before you do so, hit alt n
select run.
wait, wait.
hit alt i when prompted.
wait, wait, hit alt u when prompted this may appear or not.
finally hit alt c when prompted.
Or winkey r for run then type control
hit enter.
find java hit enter.
control tab to updates.
hit check now then download.
or in start menu search for java con and it should pop up as configure java or java control panel.
For adobe, type dc or adobe or acrobat into start search box.
open adobe reader dc.
hit alt h for help
scroll to check for updates.
hit download.
alt tab to adobe and close the program.
eventually an update notification icon will appear in systray.
hit that icon and select install.

Hi listers ken with a question. I repeatedly get, new notifications from both java and adobe saying updates are available click here but by the time you do anything the balloon or icon is gone. the notification isn’t in the action senter on windows 10. the computer had been on for over two hours before they popped up this time. all my screen reader sees is the microsoft edge running pandora window. these are apparently critical updates. how do I get to them manually to allow the updates to install. it is only on the screen for a fraction of a second. by the time NVDA is saying click here to comtinue there is no here to click.


changing my name in the outlook address book

Rosemarie Chavarria
 

Hi, everyone,

 

I came back to outlook. When my nephew set it up for me today, he put my nickname as my display name. How do I change it so my full name will be displayed?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

Re: Using Notepad++?

 

I could not find anything but the git Hub community has been aware of some of the shortcomings so I hope someone will make a podcast or something sometime. Below is just one of many threads about NVDA issues I found so people are well aware of the accessibility issues. I know it is not what you asked for but these kinds of links were all I could find. https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/1701        


Re: colum headers in thunderbird

Hello Brian:


Everything works like a charm now. Thanks much for the help.

William, the following is a cut and paste from an accessibility central webpage (see here) regarding using NVDA and Thunderbird.  Since the method suggested for what you wish to do involves object navigation I have to believe the instructions are recent:

Using drag and drop with NVDA to rearrange column headers in Mozilla Thunderbird 

If you would like to move a column from one area to another in the email header, you will need to tab from tree view into your email message list. Next put NVDA into object navigation mode.  Use the NVDA key + the number 1 on the numeric keypad to do this.

If I wanted to move a particular column to another location (IE before or after the current column) I would do the following in the header of the email.

From the message list, I would press the NVDA key + the number 4 on the numeric keypad until I heard the name of the column I wanted to move (for example Status). I would then press NVDA + Numpad divide (above the number 8 on the numeric keypad) to route the mouse pointer there. Then you would press Shift + Numpad divide again to lock the left mouse button. Press the NVDA key + Numpad 4 again a number of times until you hear the name of the column immediately before the column I want to move the selected column to (for example next to unread). Press the NVDA key + Numpad divide to put the mouse pointer there, and press the Shift key + Numpad divide to unlock the left mouse button.

Please note: You can also use the NVDA key + the number 6 on the numeric keypad to move it back the other way then unlock it in that position. 

Now, when you arrow down or up your messages, you will notice the difference when NVDA reads it out.


For an audio tutorial on how to insert and remove columns in Mozilla Thunderbird, as well as moving your column from one position to another using drag and drop with NVDA, please visit the following link https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/64177841/adding%20or%20removing%20columns%20plus%20drag%20and%20dropping%20in%20mozilla%20thunderbird.MP3

Using Notepad++?

 

Hello,
I am considering a migration over to Notepad++. What settings do people recommend?
Also has anyone managed to get the list boxes in the settings (like the list of keyboard shortcuts) to read out?
Also, is there any way to have NVDA read the current line after one jumps in between paragraphs?
Is there any way to hear the code suggestions while typing?
Is there any way to hear the number of unmatched braces in the file?
Thanks,

I was seeing if it worked or not as one of my hotmail accounts refuses
