Re: Reporting information about visual formattings of Web sites

Luke Scholey <lukescholey@...>
 

Hi
Not sure how well it will work, but in the Preferences menu of NVDA, there is an item labelled document formatting. In this dialogue box are checkboxes relating to how much detail you want spoken when reading the document or webpage. Is this similar to what you are looking for?
Hope that helped.
Regards
Luke

hi again.
for security reasons and avoide system infected by malicious flash
content,type about:config in addresss press enter twice.
in the search box peist plugin.state.flash
press enter on it.
delete its number which is 2 by default.
type 1 instead of 2 and press enter to work.
because 2 means its activate by default.
but when you change it in to 1, it asks from users whether open flash
content or not.
when its not loaded automaticly, it helps you to increase your
security very much.
hope that helps and God bless you!

Hi,

Can anyone advise me how to go about editing a new macro in Microsoft Word
2010, 2013 and 2016?

I have tried to create a macro by using a macro script in text form for
spellchecking which should be pasted into the macro editor. I am finding it
difficult to find guidance on editing rather than recording.

Can anyone point me to a good tutorial on this, please?



All the best,

Re: nvda announcing clipboard functions and other keystrokes

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

No but there is an add on called fake clipboard announcements. Fake because it only speaks the assumed function, and in no way means that this has worked. If you want to know that there is a key sequence in nvda that speaks the contents of the clipboard.
In the old days I believe the ethos was this.
There is no way that windows actually alerts access software that any of these commands has been successful, so why should we waste verbosity saying they have been activated, when silence is no different in its meaning. My feelings are different. Why>? Well many people are not confident typists and cannot be sure what they typed so very important possible functions being spoken can be very comforting.

I doubt it's most sites.  Many major sites use HTML 5 but a lot of sites still use only Flash.  

 

Anyone who cares about audio listening is cutting off their nose to spite their face by not having Flash available.  If you don't want to have the risk of being exposed to malicious Flash in advertising, tell Flash not to run or tell it to ask before running.  Increasingly, this isn't necessarty because browsers are increasingly not running Flash content such as advertising unless the user takes an action to have it run.  Of course, you need to be using a recent version of the browser.  Internet Explorer, which is becoming increasingly archaic, doesn't have this feature. 

 

I'm not saying that audio or audio/video material can't have malicious content but if you use reputable sites, it is unlikely.  Flash advertising has a higher chance of being malicious and it slows down loading of pages and may cause crashes.  If your browser doesn't automatically stop it from running, you may want to change the setting in the plugin.  For those who use Ad Blockers or script blockers, you are blocking Flash advertising in general except on white listed sites.

Re: nvda announcing clipboard functions and other keystrokes

Gene
 

That isn't how most screen-readers work.  I used to try to encourage that this feature be properly implemented by advocating for it here but I've given up.  JAWS knows when a copy or paste has been actually done and doesn't report it otherwise.  So does System Access.  I don't recall what Window-eyes does but since both JAWS and System
Acceess can do it, I would think it would be within reason to have NVDA do it.

Re: Does firefox work with windows ten?

Gene
 

Of course it's compatible with Windows 10. 
 
There is a problem with Flash crashinggg when using Firefox.  I don't know much about it but others can probably propose solutions.  Or your friend can look up the problem by doing a Google search.  She shouldn't download anything from sites that offer to correct problems but she will find discussions on reputable sites such as Bleeping Computer in the results. 
 
As for why one specific site doesn't work, I don't know.

Hi list: Arlene here! I have a sighted friend who’s determined to make fire fox work with her win ten computer. She will not listen to me when I tell her it does not work. This is spasifically for Canadians to try this site with win ten and firefox.

And watches the young nd the restless, she gets a message stating that adobe flash player has crashed. Does anyone know if fire fox is compatible with windows ten? thanks.

 


Re: nvda announcing clipboard functions and other keystrokes

Simone Dal Maso
 

Yes,
there is the addon, but it will say "paste" also if you don't paste any text.
So keep in mind that it works, but you don't really know if you have copied or pasted the text.
It says "copy" when you press ctrl-c.

There is an addon which makes these announcements available.


It is called Fake Clipboard announce or something like that.

You should able to find it on the addons repositary.

Re: Roman algarisms

Walmir Schultz <wsautodidata@...>
 

Hi,

I added the entries in the standard dictionary. Now those irritating roman algarisms are not pronounced anymore.
But it would be much better if we could "disable" roman algarisms altoghether.

Which synthesizer are you using?  This is set by the synth rather than by NVDA itself.

You could override it in NVDA using the speech dictionary, however, you would need to account for any possible Roman numeral.

Quentin.

You know brian this is not really an nvda issue, I had this back in the dos days to, if I assigned something to a dictionary for example a roman numeral or a scientiffic symbol then that would be used for everything.
I think the main dictionary should be locked and have nothing like abreviations etc assigned to it, it sould just be a blank with only words in it and such not short hand.
For extras needing it, you would have either downloadable or installed dictionaries for that, you would have to make profiles using such dictionaries, another way  to get rid of user clutter for example would certain programs using certain dictionaries, a math program would use a different dictionary a language program would use its own or a different one.
And of cause youcould as a user use symbols from where ever you wanted but its still to complex even then.
Unless you could tell the dictionary yourself I don't see any way round this.

Hi,
How can i instruct NVDA to announce "DI" as "D" "I" instead of 501 and
"CDI" as "C" "D" "I" instead of 401?
Or, still better, how can  I set NVDA to forget roman numbers altogether?
