Added dialog box for managing voice synthesizers profiles.
The full list of updates is listed below.

New dictionary service also supports Arabic, as it was previously requested
here:
https://github.com/grisov/quickDictionary/issues/1

Changes in version 2.0:
* added the ability to connect other online dictionary services (now
supported Lexicala and Yandex);
* added Lexicala service and its settings panel (supports 50 languages) -
https://www.lexicala.com/
* added a dialog for choosing an online service from the list of available
ones;
* added a command to get information about the selected service;
* added a dialog for working with profiles of voice synthesizers (supported
operations Create/Change/Delete/Update/Save);
* implemented the procedure for switching to the previous voice
synthesizer;
* implemented a parallel thread to monitor the state of the synthesizer
((improved switching of synthesizers when voicing a dictionary article));
* due to an increase in the number of functions in the add-on - help for
commands is now displayed in a separate window;
* updated procedure for caching requests to online services;
* added add-on submenu to NVDA menu;
* updated ReadMe.

Please note that Lexicala Dictionaries only allows 300 free inquiries per

Amen!  This bears repeating, as often as necessary, until screen reader search use increases significantly.  It also allows for very quick determination if something suspected to be present is actually present or not, including controls like buttons.

You may already know this, but I just played around with contacts in the simple HTML view. If you check the check boxes for all the contacts you want to include in a message, then press the compose button, the message will open with all the addresses you checked.

Or you can just use your screen-reader's search to search for cont from the
top of the page. You will find contacts on the first search. Search is one
of the most powerful and underused means of efficient navigation. Most of
the time, typing the first four letters of what you are looking for will be
sufficient to find the item in the first search or the first repetition of
the search.

Are you using basic HTML or standard view? If Basic HTML, the easiest
way to find it is to navigate by heading from the top of the page, it
will be there as a link and a heading. As for attachments, it doesn't
open a dialog right away, it opens a second page where there are 10
more browse buttons that you then have to use just like the first one.
If you're using standard view, I'll have to test this out and get back

As an aside, the regular Gmail webmail interface is now a lot more accessible that it was way back when.  I used to suggest only using the basic HTML interface, but no more.  Particularly if you activate the Google keyboard shortcuts and accessibility settings for the regular interface.

It's been ages since I've worked with those, so long in fact that I

And what's even more annoying, at least to me, is that if any screen reader

distinction between a combo box (which allows you to type in the box itself,
rather than having to drop down and select) and dropdown box (which doesn't,
you must drop down and select) is lost.

True combo boxes seem to have fallen largely out of fashion, but they exist
as a separate entity from a dropdown box, and vice versa.

I don't really care if a single shortcut is used for both, but the
documentation should note that this means either a combo box or a dropdown
box.  The NVDA Commands Quick Reference mentions combo boxes only.

Re: shortcut keys

Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

As others have said, these are screen reader commands, but many are
standardized across screen readers. They do act differently in
different screen readers however. For example, System Access
acknowledges that there are landmarks on a page by automatically
starting to read from a main landmark, but has no way to navigate by
landmark. What NVDA and JAWS call combo boxes accessed with the
command c, System Access calls drop-down lists, accessed with the
command d. Another difference, and this one is kind of annoying, is
that System Access and NVDA both inform you that there aren't anymore
headings on a page but keep you at the last heading, while JAWS rapps
back to the top of the page. Different screen readers do have
different commands. For instance, in JAWS, insert F5 provides a list
of form controls, insert F6 provides a list of headings, and insert F7
provides a list of links. In NVDA, insert F7 brings up an elements
list, from which all the above elements can be listed by navigating to
the radio buttons and choosing the one you want.

They are called quick navigation commands and they are determined by your

NVDA and JAWS regarding these commands, they are almost all the same. I

Re: shortcut keys

Gene
 

There is absolutely no comparison. The quick navigation keys allow you to do something of enormous value that you couldn't do other wise. They allow you to move by structure on web sites. There is no sighted equivalent because sighted people can just look at structures on web pages. Its as though you asked if the read title bar command should be in screen-readers but nop virtual ribbon menus. Again, the read title bar command gives you access to something sighted people can just look at and it gives immediate access to very important information.

the virtual ribbon menu JAWS implemented does nothing that is not already done as well or better by ribbons. It provides an unnecessary interface that limits blind people. By limiting, I mean that instructions for sighted users always use the real ribbons, of course, and tutorials for blind users usually use the real ribbons when giving instructions. Therefore, you are significantly limited if you know the JAWSS interface and not the real one.

Have you tried to learn ribbons and not the JAWS special interface? If so, what problems did you have?
