Re: Spotify Shortcuts

No one will make an NVDA add on for the old app. 
 
I haven't used the new app for a long time and I don't know how accessible it is compared to when it first came out.

Re: Reading text on images

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi do you not mean as in alt text for the photo or as text in a jpeg photo?

I mean asit having a description. If it does you can use the nvda key +
the letter D.

i think on some of them they are automatically read out.


if you are referring to the ocr add on after you have ocred it you need
to use the review text cursor to read the contents.


you might get a better one from the cloud ocr add on maybe.

Re: Spotify Shortcuts

Gene
 

I can send you a link to download the installation file but I don't know how useful you'll find it.  The interface is inaccessible and it requires object navigation to use it.  Trying to search using the application is so cumbersome it isn't worth doing.  You can search using Google, or whatever search engine you want, then follow a link.  YIf you don't have scripts disabled, the web player will start to play the file.  You can get the address from the browser's address bar and paste it into the old desktop application.  Do you want to do all this?  You will get better sound from the old app but you may not want it after what I've said.  There is more to explain if you want to use it. 
 
If you want to learn more, save this message and add the rest of the instructions.

Anyone know if you can use any shortcuts in Spotify to do things like
pause music and control the volume? Right now I have to go into the
menus to do all of that, but otherwise the program is accessible.

I meant a limit on the amount of bandwidth for downloads such as a certain limit per day.  It's not that these small items will be a problem in themselves, but just in case you were using a lot of bandwidth in other ways, I inquired.

Gene,

          If you think these would prove helpful with wider distribution I'm more than happy to spread 'em about.  If you could get the submission information (if Top Tech Tidbits is not a Groups.io group) I'll be happy to send them along.

          There is an actual limit for Google Drive free storage, but at 15GB it would take me forever to fill it with word documents.

David,

           It is very difficult to describe what composed the Aero design guidelines and aesthetics with any precision.  See this Wikipedia article. As far as I'm concerned most of the guidelines and aesthetics that were central to what Aero looked like began being phased out big time with the advent of Windows 8 and the stripping of that aesthetic continued with Windows 10.  The article gives you a timeline regarding the Aero era.

Joseph, when I get to the point where a notification is spoken, is it the same as in IE? Do I just hit alt+N to move focus to the notification bar?

Hi,

As of 2016.4, there’s no need to use object navigation to use Edge for most scenarios except a few.

For the most part, you can use browse mode with Edge and Edge-based controls in Windows 10. One thing that WinTenApps add-on enhances is letting NVDA announce notifications from Edge (just like other browsers). Currently NV Access is working on other improvements, such as finding text in Edge and other exciting things.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi all,

I am working on a written tutorial for Edge right now. I will put it on lists by Monday. By using NVDA and the object navigation, the Edge browser might be easier than using Firefox.

Chris,

           Edge's visuals are very, very different from those of Internet Explorer.  IE remains very "old windows" in look and feel because it comes from all the earlier versions of windows and evolved within those ecosystems over the years, stopping at Windows 7 (even though it carried over into Windows 8).

           By contrast, Edge was created as a creature of the Universal Apps era and interface design, and everything about its actual screen appearance screams that fact.

           Visually speaking, and it's actually one of the things I hate both aesthetically and when it comes to working with visually-impaired individuals who have enough residual vision to use it to target things presented on a screen, even though they can't seen them clearly, is the "flat look" that is all the rage these days, and not just with Microsoft.  The old Aero era style of trying to make buttons have a somewhat 3-dimensional appearance, and a great deal of visual distinctiveness from the window frame or toolbar on which it is placed, is now gone and everything pretty much looks like a figure printed on a piece of paper.  For those familiar with it, even the long known "red X" that gets used to close a program and its window entirely for those who point and click is no longer red unless one is hovering over it. Many other buttons change from a lighter tone to a darker tone of the same basic color, or vice versa, to indicate you're hovering over them.  This is hellishly difficult for anyone without genuinely good vision to differentiate.  Mind you, all of the preceding is presuming that you're using a typical Windows theme, not a high contrast theme, but typical themes used to have more visual relief between buttons and other controls and high-contrast themes introduce issues of their own, though they have their place.  The new "flat look" makes a lot of things a lot harder to deal with visually because the new style is a vast expanse of background color with black icons laying flatly on it.  Nothing draws the eye in the way things did during the Aero design era.
