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.

Flash crashes a lot on firefox but firefox, google and others are
actively discouraging insecure flash though I still have it on systems
because it is still used.
Most sites like youtube use html5 now which is the new standard and
which firefox supports.

have Flash and don't have any intention of installing it. I have seen
it crash in many places for many years, and there have always been
problems between Flash and Firefox as far back as the XP days. So
Firefox may work fine, and Adobe Flash may work perfectly for some
websites, but I'm not sure what to suggest if your friend is hell
bent on using Firefox for this particular site. I can tell you that
it probably has very little to do with Firefox, and may not even be
related to Windows 10. Sometimes, we just have to conclude that
certain sites and browsers don't get along. Google Chrome is pretty
awesome if the friend doesn't like IE.

Re: nvda announcing clipboard functions and other keystrokes

Kwork
 

I used that add-on for a short while. The problem I found was that it wasn't
reliable. There were times that I'd use it, hear the announcement, only to
find that the action hadn't been true to the announcement. The add-on seems
to verify the keystroke, but doesn't wait to do so till after the action
itself has been verified. This is one small area where Jaws is still ahead.

Re: Reporting information about visual formattings of Web sites

Jacques <lists4js@...>
 

When checking format information of styles defined in CSS, when in your
browser, make sure you are on document layout when pressing NVDA+f. I refer
to a message I sent to this list a few days ago, asking that when in a
virtual rendered window, such as in browsers, that document review is
triggered by default when selecting text with NVDA+F9 and F10, as well as
when checking format information with NVDA+F.

Checking format info when screen review or object review is active reports
the wrong information.

The extent to which the below message is correct, is that all Windows screen
readers will report information in a top to bottom layout. This, for
example, does not give a true reflection of screen layout. A typical example
is the navigation bar which could be placed on the left side of the screen,
regardless of where one is on the page, at least, visually. According to
sscreen readers the navigation bar is always at the top. The best way to
determine actual screen layout is with a tablet, moving your finger across
the screen to see where elements are placed.

Luke, it at some point worked for me.

Brian, I think it ignores all the divs such as if I have div displayed in center and then I have another one in that div. Such information couldn't be displayed as I was trying that.

Hi


I just tried it and both links took me to those 2 pages where the
tutorials went to. Maybe in your email client it may be set to text for
viewing instead of html. If this is the case you will have to highlight
the link then copy and paste it into your browser. If in the emails it
is set to html the link should work and take you to those pages then it
is a matter of jumping down by headings to those sections as they have
been named in the email.


there is also another link in the email that takes you to the main
website at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net which is at the bottom of
the emails that are sent out by me and also on the nvda list.

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.

Flash crashes a lot on firefox but firefox, google and others are actively
discouraging insecure flash though I still have it on systems because it is
still used.
Most sites like youtube use html5 now which is the new standard and which
firefox supports.

Hi,
Firstly, Firefox is actively being developed for Windows so I'm not
sure why anyone would think it doesn't work with Windows 10. I run it
myself and it's as stable here as it was on Windows xp. The issue
seems to involve Adobe Flash specifically, so it's a little more
complicated than just asking if Firefox works. I personally don't have
Flash and don't have any intention of installing it. I have seen it
crash in many places for many years, and there have always been
problems between Flash and Firefox as far back as the XP days. So
Firefox may work fine, and Adobe Flash may work perfectly for some
websites, but I'm not sure what to suggest if your friend is hell bent
on using Firefox for this particular site. I can tell you that it
probably has very little to do with Firefox, and may not even be
related to Windows 10. Sometimes, we just have to conclude that
certain sites and browsers don't get along. Google Chrome is pretty
awesome if the friend doesn't like IE.

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.

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the bad is of the way that all screen
readers or at least most of them work.

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.
