Problem: No sounds when copying files etc.

Ksenia Natapova
 

Hello,
I have NVDA installed on my laptop. I don'g hear any sound when I copy and paste a file or install a program...
I even tried to reset the NVDA settings but I still can't hear any tone. Is there any way to turn on this option?
Best regards
Ksenia

They aren't serious about what?  The program evidently should be improved or altered so that captchas should not be solved unless the user approves.  But they charge a very small amount for their service.  If you want to cut off your nose because you are angry that a for profit company charges a tiny price to solve a captcha, fine.  There is no law of nature that every program should be perfectly designed or that every free trial should be perfectly designed.  The free trial is to evaluate the product.  you may not have liked your free trial to be used up for captchas you didn't want, but you saw that the program worked. 
 
Like it or not, being blind may cost you more in some ways than being sighted.  It may also save you money.  It depends on how people live.  But being blind does not automatically mean that you will never have to pay for a product to in some way deal with blindness.

No, Rumola never!
I tried it, and they "ate up" my free captchas without me even start the
programme... As soon as I tried to solve a captcha in the trial, I was
told that I had already used them all up.
Which made me understand that they are not serious, so I abandoned the
project immediately.
As fara sI'm concerned, they can starve to the end of eternity!

Re: suggestion: giving google chrome a try Performance degradation in current Firefox

One reason Web Visum stopped being developed is because of a lack of interest in the blind community.  If blind people had expressed more interest, I would think by contributing or getting the paid version, I don't know if it mattered which, the developers might have continued to update the program. 
 
Firefox changed a security aspect.  It isn't the responsibility of the firefox developers to choose one add on and say, blind people need access to this one add on.  We will sign it ourselves or change something to allow it to work.
 
I agree with you about the lack of concern for accessibility in open source programs and that is one reason I have not been a member of the open source glorification movement.  Both open source and for profit software has its place.  and for profit software developers are more able to be pressured and persuaded to put resources into accessibility since a lack of accessibility threatens their profits in some cases.  It's nice to have free and open source software.  But the attitude that for profit software and companies are, in some way evil is ideology and doesn't follow basic laws of human nature.  People get pleasure and enjoyment from doing things for altruistic reasons.  But the profit motive is a strong motivator and, though it may have bad consequences when uncontroled, is important and is not evil.  I'd be interested to know how many in the open source is good profit companies are evil branch of the open source movement would give up their jobs and do their day jobs for free or only for contributions that allow them to live on a subsistence level.

Yes, me too. I'm using FF 45, and I hate the fact that Mozilla will
discriminate us completely after version 46.

I'm erally fed up with these so-called "Open source software guys" who
take everything into account except accessibility.

NVDA is, of course, the great exception - because it was born to make
desktops accessible in the first place.

But, if you look at open source software in general, you'll see that
quite a lot of it is either totally or partially inaccessible.

I say this with a bleeding heart, because I'm a great fan of Open
Source, and use it as much as I can.
It's a pity that we always have to fight for years before someone starts
considering accessibility.
Look at Calibre, for instance.
It was totally inaccessible until one fine day they updated qt, and it
suddenly became partially accessible.
Not for their choosing to do so, but quite by chance...

And Sumatra Pdf...
It reads so many formats, but we can't use it...

How long did it take for OpenOffice and LibreOffice to become usable?

Sad...

What actually happens is that we either have to sacrifice security, or
pay for something others don't pay for - like those captcha solving
services, that make you pay to get something everybody else gets just by
looking at the captchas...
And we have Webvisum, which was never loved by companies, apparently,
and here comes Mozilla and says that it won't be usable as of their next FF.

Why should it always be us that have to hunt for a workaround?
And they ask for donations, too... Never again!
Ciao,
A very angry and frustrated Ollie

Diddo! And for their lack of customer service, I also hope the Rumola
service starves to death. Completely with you on this one.

No, Rumola never!
I tried it, and they "ate up" my free captchas without me even start the
programme... As soon as I tried to solve a captcha in the trial, I was
told that I had already used them all up.
Which made me understand that they are not serious, so I abandoned the
project immediately.
As fara sI'm concerned, they can starve to the end of eternity!

I have Chrome and Canary and don’t get the same as you re
pressing tab to see the content in either version of the browser

The quick navigation keys operate when you are in browse mode
and I’ve not had trouble with them in standard web pages with
eiter browser but there is a problem with them in the settings
page of Chrome but they seem to work OK in the Canary settings
page.

The chrome menu reads perfectly in chrome but there are a couple
of gaps in the Canary version after Zoom and Edit entries.

Performance degradation in current Firefox

Unfortunately, Chrome accessibility has a bit of a ways to go. I
wish it didn't. I wish I could reliably use Chrome without the
strangeness that persists, but I can't. With Canary, some menu
items are not read out by NVDA, but are by Chromevox. Others are
read out by NVDA and not by Chromevox. I don't want two screen
reading packages running. When navigating the web and going to a
new web page, I seem to have to push tab after a new page loads,
otherwise NVDA doesn't seem to see the content on the page. When
doing a search on the Google page and when navigating around
Chrome in general, pressing H to navigate by heading only works
sometimes, but sometimes locks up until I again press tab to
force it to get back to the content. The sign-in process in
Chrome does not work with NVDA. I needed to use Window-eyes to
get it to read the content. JAWS was also unable to read it. And
I will post another thread about this, but Hangouts doesn't work
very well. the Hangouts app seems to be totally inaccessible to
next branches of NVDA and Canary. And the keyboard shortcuts
that Google outlines in their manual at
https://support.google.com/hangouts/answer/3112005?rd=1 don't
work when navigating to hangouts.google.com
<http://hangouts.google.com>, and the article doesn't specify
where exactly these shortcuts are supposed to work. Actually
many hotkeys that Google outlines interfere with
browser-specific hotkeys. So I would be happy to transition to
using Chrome, as Firefox is becoming awful, but that would mean
a huge loss of productivity for me. So if you have been able to
get Chrome to work more reliably, I am interested in which
version of Chrome and which version of NVDA, as well as any
settings changes that you have made for your specific set-up. If
this is localized to just me, I am willing to do some
troubleshooting, but on three computers Chrome's behavior seems
to be the same. About the only improvement I have seen to Chrome
Canary is that NVDA reads out a few additional menu items that
it wasn't reading before. I might try resetting Chrome back to
default settings and removing all plugins to see if that has any
effect, but this installation of Chrome is pretty new, so I'm
not sure if that will help or not.

Feature Request: Braille Display Moves Carret

Rob
 

It would be a useful toggle switch to have braille navigation move the system focus/carret. This would be especially useful, for example, when reading books or other documents strictly with your display. That way, when you leave the document, your carret is where you left it, just as though you used your arrow keys to navigate.

hello.
i tested both libreoffice and open office and read many online
materials and documentations about them.
it depend on your need that which one you select.
but i mentione for you sometechnical points that i know andare
prominent for me.
1/ libreoffice is fortunately more independent and less need for java.
but open office is more relies on java.
for example: libreoffice only needs java for macros, data base etc.
but open office needs java for macros, data base, saving to xml and
some vizard like letter, fax, agenda and web page.
libreoffice saves inboth microsoft office 2003 and new office formats
like: doc, ppt, docx, pptx etc.
but open office only saves in microsoft office 2003 formats.
2/ libreoffice supports word count and character count in all of the
format which support in its version before version 5.
but in version 5.0 and later, it only supports word and character
count only for its special format which is .odt.
open office does not have this option.
and word-character format is special feature of libreoffice.
3/ both programs support many formats for openning and range of
libreoffice formats is more wide.
for example: libreoffice even supports many formats of mac for openning.
4/ libreoffice in version 4.3 shows its messages very accessible by
tab key and you can easily press tab and with using home to go to
first character and pressing control shift end, you can select it,
copy it and peist in other place.
but unfortunately the messages are not accessible easily in other
programs and you should nvda screen review and other nvda cursors to
access it.
5/ libreoffice has somecloud online services and open office does not have.
for example: google drive, one drive, sharepoint, etc.
6/ libreoffice since version 4.4 has an option for openGL and open
office does not have.
its very strungly recommended to deactivate it, in libreoffice tools,
options, libreoffice, view.
7/ say all does not work in both libreoffice and open office and you
should read your documents paragraph by paragraph.
8/ somesaid that open office is more stable and libreoffice has more
features that open office has not.
9/ open office translated to limited languages and you can select and
install only your own language.
but libreoffice is translated to more than 110 languages and when you
install it, it recognizes your locale language in your windows.
it installs only english and your local language.
10/ libreoffice help file should be installed separately.
but open office help is installed by default.
11/ if you want more information, you have refer to this link for
example, and also email me.

I tried it, and they "ate up" my free captchas without me even start the programme... As soon as I tried to solve a captcha in the trial, I was told that I had already used them all up.

yes, that's true, what you say.
but on the other hand, when i browse to a site, where is a capcha available,
the capcha wil be processed byy rumola, even if you don't need it at that

i think that is a problem, if i don't can disable it until i need it.

Hi,
You have to use Ramola captscha add on. You pay 95 cents to solve 150 captschas and so on. Have a great one.

Chromevox is Google's screen reading option that a user can

I have Chrome and Canary and don’t get the same as you re
pressing tab to see the content in either version of the browser

The quick navigation keys operate when you are in browse mode
and I’ve not had trouble with them in standard web pages with
eiter browser but there is a problem with them in the settings
page of Chrome but they seem to work OK in the Canary settings page.

The chrome menu reads perfectly in chrome but there are a couple
of gaps in the Canary version after Zoom and Edit entries.

Performance degradation in current Firefox

Unfortunately, Chrome accessibility has a bit of a ways to go. I
wish it didn't. I wish I could reliably use Chrome without the
strangeness that persists, but I can't. With Canary, some menu
items are not read out by NVDA, but are by Chromevox. Others are
read out by NVDA and not by Chromevox. I don't want two screen
reading packages running. When navigating the web and going to a
new web page, I seem to have to push tab after a new page loads,
otherwise NVDA doesn't seem to see the content on the page. When
doing a search on the Google page and when navigating around
Chrome in general, pressing H to navigate by heading only works
sometimes, but sometimes locks up until I again press tab to
force it to get back to the content. The sign-in process in
Chrome does not work with NVDA. I needed to use Window-eyes to
get it to read the content. JAWS was also unable to read it. And
I will post another thread about this, but Hangouts doesn't work
very well. the Hangouts app seems to be totally inaccessible to
next branches of NVDA and Canary. And the keyboard shortcuts
that Google outlines in their manual at
https://support.google.com/hangouts/answer/3112005?rd=1 don't
work when navigating to hangouts.google.com
<http://hangouts.google.com>, and the article doesn't specify
where exactly these shortcuts are supposed to work. Actually
many hotkeys that Google outlines interfere with
browser-specific hotkeys. So I would be happy to transition to
using Chrome, as Firefox is becoming awful, but that would mean
a huge loss of productivity for me. So if you have been able to
get Chrome to work more reliably, I am interested in which
version of Chrome and which version of NVDA, as well as any
settings changes that you have made for your specific set-up. If
this is localized to just me, I am willing to do some
troubleshooting, but on three computers Chrome's behavior seems
to be the same. About the only improvement I have seen to Chrome
Canary is that NVDA reads out a few additional menu items that
it wasn't reading before. I might try resetting Chrome back to
default settings and removing all plugins to see if that has any
effect, but this installation of Chrome is pretty new, so I'm
not sure if that will help or not.

Thanks.

Re: suggestion: giving google chrome a try Performance degradation in current Firefox

Mallard
 

Yes, me too. I'm using FF 45, and I hate the fact that Mozilla will discriminate us completely after version 46.

I'm erally fed up with these so-called "Open source software guys" who take everything into account except accessibility.

NVDA is, of course, the great exception - because it was born to make desktops accessible in the first place.

But, if you look at open source software in general, you'll see that quite a lot of it is either totally or partially inaccessible.

I say this with a bleeding heart, because I'm a great fan of Open Source, and use it as much as I can.
It's a pity that we always have to fight for years before someone starts considering accessibility.
Look at Calibre, for instance.
It was totally inaccessible until one fine day they updated qt, and it suddenly became partially accessible.
Not for their choosing to do so, but quite by chance...

And Sumatra Pdf...
It reads so many formats, but we can't use it...

How long did it take for OpenOffice and LibreOffice to become usable?

Sad...

What actually happens is that we either have to sacrifice security, or pay for something others don't pay for - like those captcha solving services, that make you pay to get something everybody else gets just by looking at the captchas...
And we have Webvisum, which was never loved by companies, apparently, and here comes Mozilla and says that it won't be usable as of their next FF.

Why should it always be us that have to hunt for a workaround?
And they ask for donations, too... Never again!

hi,
This problem has existed at least since last year. Unfortunatly no
concrete action was taken to fix or determine the cause of it.

Hello everyone,
i am a frequent user of NVDA because my first screenreader is Jaws. I am
willing to switch to NVDA, but there are some barriers which prevent me
to come to NVDA family. My main problem starts with microsoft word. NvDA
is very slow when reading text, and when reading books which go up to
200 pages, it is unacceptable to use it. Long documents or books are
very common at university, so I can't avoid them by any means. I also
tried using libra office, but things grew even worse. I opened a 300
page book with that program and both NVDA and libra office crashed
desperately. I installed microsoft office 2013 and the performance
improved a bit, but still it is too slow compared to jaws. by the way,
I'm not making comperisons here, I just want to have NVDA working better
with word.
so, if there's anyone who could help me with this problem, I would be
very grateful and it would be highly appreciated.
sincerely,
Afrim.

Re: enhancing microsoft word:

 

hello.
i tested both libreoffice and open office and read many online
materials and documentations about them.
it depend on your need that which one you select.
but i mentione for you sometechnical points that i know andare
prominent for me.
1/ libreoffice is fortunately more independent and less need for java.
but open office is more relies on java.
for example: libreoffice only needs java for macros, data base etc.
but open office needs java for macros, data base, saving to xml and
some vizard like letter, fax, agenda and web page.
libreoffice saves inboth microsoft office 2003 and new office formats
like: doc, ppt, docx, pptx etc.
but open office only saves in microsoft office 2003 formats.
2/ libreoffice supports word count and character count in all of the
format which support in its version before version 5.
but in version 5.0 and later, it only supports word and character
count only for its special format which is .odt.
open office does not have this option.
and word-character format is special feature of libreoffice.
3/ both programs support many formats for openning and range of
libreoffice formats is more wide.
for example: libreoffice even supports many formats of mac for openning.
4/ libreoffice in version 4.3 shows its messages very accessible by
tab key and you can easily press tab and with using home to go to
first character and pressing control shift end, you can select it,
copy it and peist in other place.
but unfortunately the messages are not accessible easily in other
programs and you should nvda screen review and other nvda cursors to
access it.
5/ libreoffice has somecloud online services and open office does not have.
for example: google drive, one drive, sharepoint, etc.
6/ libreoffice since version 4.4 has an option for openGL and open
office does not have.
its very strungly recommended to deactivate it, in libreoffice tools,
options, libreoffice, view.
7/ say all does not work in both libreoffice and open office and you
should read your documents paragraph by paragraph.
8/ somesaid that open office is more stable and libreoffice has more
features that open office has not.
9/ open office translated to limited languages and you can select and
install only your own language.
but libreoffice is translated to more than 110 languages and when you
install it, it recognizes your locale language in your windows.
it installs only english and your local language.
10/ libreoffice help file should be installed separately.
but open office help is installed by default.
11/ if you want more information, you have refer to this link for
example, and also email me.

You can use an older version of Firefox portable on sites where you want to use Webvisum and the current version of Firefox everywhere else. 
 
If you use a lot of sites that require Webvisum, it may be more security risk than you want to take.  If, like many people, you don't use a lot of such sites, you may consider the security risk of using an older browser on a small number of sites to be worth taking.

You can do absolutely nothing to get web visum to work after Firefox 43.
That trick only works for version 43. After that, there is nothing at all

Hi Gene,
Thanks a lot. I did not think of that. I will download a portable version of Firefox, because I hardly want to solve a Captscha. I need to seddle down. It has been a crazy weekend, and I am getting too bold for my own good on lists today.
