Hello.

In NVDA 2019.3, NVDA add the automatic detection for the braille displays of Freedom Scientific. When you conect your Focus, NVDA go to use this braille display. But if NVDA didn't detect the conection, you can select the Braille display and the conection methot in the category braille, dialog options of NVDA.

Hello,

 

Does NVDA work with the focus 14 braille display? I just looked in the settings and I’m not sure that I can see it there but I thought I’d ask here.

 

Many thanks.

Hello,

I'd like to join the other voices and sincerely congratulate Joseph, both for the official recognition as an excellent public speaker, and for all the difficult work as an add-on developer, without even mentioning his massive contribution to this community. Let's be honest for a second, what would this community be without you and your knowledge? I can't even try to imagine.

Hello everyone,

 

First, thank you everyone for celebrating the news noted on recent In-Process blog post. I accept the All-American Team recognition solemnly, knowing that it means a lot to the blindness community, and for folks here, to the wider NVDA community.

 

Second, people who regularly visit NVDA community add-ons website may have noticed changes for entries such as Add-on Updater, Resource Monitor, and StationPlaylist. Those keeping an eye on version changes may have noticed a new entry named “20.06”. I’m delighted to announce that version 20.06 for stable channel subscribers is on its way for the following add-ons, to be released next week:

  • Add-on Updater
  • Control Usage Assistant
  • Enhanced Touch Gestures
  • GoldWave
  • Object Location Tones
  • Resource Monitor
  • StationPlaylist
  • Windows 10 App Essentials

 

For people reading the changelog might be wondering what the following entry means:

 

Resolved potential bugs with Flake8.

 

Flake8 is a tool used to check coding style for Python projects. NV Access and code contributors have been using this tool for months so NVDA screen reader source code can conform to certain coding styles used by wider Python community. Flake8 is also useful for discovering potential and actual bugs, as some of the more recent bug fixes in StationPlaylist were due to Flake8 flagging code that may lead to problems.

 

For many of you, you won’t notice any changes (apart from users of StationPlaylist). Because I know that many of you are impacted by COVID-19 (including physical distancing), I won’t release all eight updates at once – it’ll be done in waves, starting with Enhanced Touch Gestures and ending with Add-on Updater.

 

Speaking of add-on updates, I must confess that I’m exhausted after going through a confusing spring term in college. Therefore I will not be working on add-on maintenance in June so I can get some fresh air (i.e. taking a break). For users of StationPlaylist and Windows 10 App Essentials, this means no development snapshots in June; fortunately everything required for the next stable version (20.07) is done – all that needs to be done is release it after the break. I’ll still be around on NVDA list – it’s just that I’m taking a break from NVDA world for a while.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: question regard current for ground object.

 

Hi all,

We may need to change the description…

The “foreground object”, in this context refers to screen (programming description to follow). That is, when you press NVDA+B, NVDA will read contents of the screen – specifically the apps you are focused on. As Gene and others pointed out, it includes information that are usually not keyboard focusable such as tool bars, menu bar, status bars, among many other things.

Technical: for resident programmers, this command will perform a pre-order tree traversal. The root node is the foreground object (specifically, what NVDA thinks is the foreground object, which is ultimately set by accessibility API in use).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi

NVDA+b reads the current foreground object, in other words the object that currently has focus.  It is mostly used for things like windows that pop open to give information and just have an OK button.  NVDA  will usually read out the contents of the Window automatically but if you  wanted to listen to the details again, NVDA+b would read it for you.

Re: question regard current for ground object.

I should add an important thing.  When you are moving in this way, if you stop somewhere, using control, if you are in object review, you will be whare you stop.  At times, I move to something by letting the information read and pressing control when I hear something I know is there from previous use of the command in a certain window.  I am then on the control, such as a button and I activate using commands to activate items such as controls I am on using the object navigator.  I am talking about cmmands such as NVDA key numpad  enter or move the mouse and activate.  I have at times found this very useful, though if I find something by using NVDA key b. I may move the object navigator to it directly, depending on which is faster and easier.

This may be longer with more ihformation than you want but you and others may find this interesting and useful.  I almost never see it discussed and almost never other than in very shoret explanations which tell nothing of the interesting ways it may be used and what you may learn.
 
an object can be many things, and I don't know technically enough to define it properly. 
 
But in practical terms, if you are in a dialog, the dialog will usually be spoken.  if you are in a document, for example in Notepad, no part of the document is spoken.  Instead, you will hear certain controls announced.  I am not generalizing about word processors or text editors.  I don't know what sort of variations you may find.
 
Others may discuss what an object is and why certain things are read.  But in practical terms, you may find it interesting and useful to try the command in different programs.  There are times when you may hear things read you will never hear otherwise, and they may be useful because you may hear many controls announced you won't find in ordinary use.  You could find them or most of them by looking around the screen using object review but that is a lot of work and tedious and you may miss things. 
 
In a lot of programs, you don't need to do this but as a matter of curiosity and if you want to see if there may be useful things in a program, you might want to do this. 
 
Sometimes, its just interesting to see how much information sighted people get that blind people don't.  In my e-mail program, for example, Windows Live Mail, if I'm in the main window, I hear all sorts of things that tell sighted people how to open or activate all sorts of features I might not have known about otherwise.  As in a radio, for example, where buttons or knobs might say off/on/volume, tone, etc. so when I use the command in Windows Live mail, I hear all sorts of commands I do in other ways, along with things I would never have happened across, such as start the colorizer.  All sorts of things blind people learn shortcuts for, sighted people can just see as controls in the main Windows, I believe often in toolbars such as reply to a message.  This is one reason why sighted people can use computers so quickly with little knowledge and little time spent learning.  I would never have really known or understood this, if I hadn't used this command in some programs. I had thought mostly sighted people clicked menus and then clicked an item in a menu, for example.  From looking at Windows Live Mail in the main window, I learned that often, it isn't necessary.  The sorts of things I found are the equivalent of keyboard shortcuts but they are visual.  A sighted person may just sees a reply button and click it.

In a lot of programs, you don't need to do this but as a matter of curiosity and if you want to see if there may be useful things in a program, you might want to do this. 
 
Sometimes, its just interesting to see how much information sighted people get that blind people don't.  In my e-mail program, for example, Windows Live Mail, if I'm in the main window, I hear all sorts of things that tell sighted people how to open or activate all sorts of features I might not have known about otherwise.  As in a radio, for example, where buttons or knobs might say off/on/volume, tone, etc. so when I use the command in Windows Live mail, I hear all sorts of commands I do in other ways, along with things I would never have happened across, such as start the colorizer.  All sorts of things blind people learn shortcuts for, sighted people can just see as controls in the main Windows, I believe often in toolbars such as reply to a message.  This is one reason why sighted people can use computers so quickly with little knowledge and little time spent learning.  I would never have really known or understood this, if I hadn't used this command in some programs. I had thought mostly sighted people clicked menus and then clicked an item in a menu, for example.  From looking at Windows Live Mail in the main window, I learned that often, it isn't necessary.  The sorts of things I found are the equivalent of keyboard shortcuts but they are visual.  A sighted person may just sees a reply button and click it.

Hi

NVDA+b reads the current foreground object, in other words the object that currently has focus.  It is mostly used for things like windows that pop open to give information and just have an OK button.  NVDA  will usually read out the contents of the Window automatically but if you  wanted to listen to the details again, NVDA+b would read it for you.

 

Cheers

Chris

Try this:

"To fix dropbox:
windows B
go to dropbox, enter, context menu appears.
go to preferences,
you are in General,
tab to: ""when starting dropbox go to the desktop app: uncheck this,
tab twice, ""badge"" do not use that,
tab twice to ""open folders in"" change to file explorer.
use alt + down arrow for pulldown,
enter out of there.

It seems like a number of weeks ago the Dropbox innerface changed. Is there a way to force Dropbox to come up in explorer view automatically? Thanks.
