Re: NVDA goes silent when arrowing down the list of participants panel in Zoom

Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

I have this issue too. What I've found to work is to hit your up arrow
when you get to the point where it goes silent, then your down arrow
again. That helps for a brief time, then you have to repeat that
process again. I agree, kind of annoying. I'm also having two
additional issues with NVDA not reading things properly in Zoom:
1. When typing anything in Zoom and you type something wrong, NVDA
does not read what you backspace. It reads if you type things
normally, but if you try to review or correct an error, it will not
read.
2. If you're in a meeting that initially isn't being recorded, then
the host starts recording, NVDA does not read the alert that tells you
that the meeting is now being recorded.

Hi all,

Wish to report the above problem when using NVDA in Zoom. IN a zoom
meeting, if I wish to find out the list of participants, I will press
alt + U to call out the participants panel. I will then arrow down the
list. After severl down arrow, NVDA will stop speaking.

I am using the latest version of NVDA, Zoom enhancement app and Zoom.
This problem has been there even with the older version of NVDA and
Zoom. I am using Windows 8.1. I have tried the following with no avail:

1. Wit no apps

2. restart NVDA

3. Re-boot my computer.

Just wish to find out if any of you have similar problem and what can be
done? Perhaps this can help to improve future version of NVDA.

I have also use JAWS and this has not been a problem. Thanks all.

Hi Gene

Thanks for your suggestions. I have forgotten to mention that I have also tried maximising the window to no help.  Does anyone else have any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Input gestures dialogue section in user guide

Quentin Christensen
 

What did you have in mind?  Most sections don't have detailed examples.  I could expand on it in the Basic Training for NVDA module - currently it just gets a brief mention in the advanced section.

Re: Reading with NVDA on a Web Browser

Gene
 

You are using a JAWS command that is not available in NVDA. The commands you want to use have never been available. Ivf you want to use the keys in this way, an add-on has recently become available that will let you do this but you will not be able to review the screen or use object navigation if you have it set to emulate the read to end command in JAWS and more or less the numpad keys in JAWS.

If you just use NVDA and try to use all the JAWS commands, some will work and some will not.

You can get the add-on here:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/numpadNavMode.en.html

There is nothing wrong with using the add-on, but if you don't know the basics of using NVDA screen review commands, you may have inconveniences when wanting to hear dialogs or move through them efficiently or at other times when you are working somewhere where there isn't a cursor.

Re: compatible gmail notifier with nvda

Well one did and it was google desktop.
It did what he wants and even let you read them. The down fall was memory hog and was constantly indexing.
Google killed it because to easy to get access to there email servers.

I guess it's possible that someone may have written an e-mail notifier that stays logged in to a given email account rather than expecting it to be open in the background like it typically is, but if one exists, I don't know about it.

Hi,

Because in laptop layout, NVDA+down arrow (regular down arrow key) reads next line under review cursor. To perform say all in laptop layout, press NVDA+A.

Re: compatible gmail notifier with nvda

 

In order to get notifications from Gmail webmail for message arrivals, you must have two different settings tweaked, one in Windows and the other in Gmail's own settings.

1. In Windows, make sure the browser(s) that you're using are permitted to give notifications in Settings, System, Notifications & Actions pane.  I believe Microsoft automatically activates them for new Chromium-based Edge, but I have the entries for Chrome and Brave enabled for both banners and sounds.

2. In Gmail's settings, General tab, look for Desktop Notifications.  If you want pop-up notifications you need to activate the link to allow them (desktop notifications).  If you just want a notification via the action center, which is how most e-mail clients do it, then simply choose the radio button for the type of notification you want.

I intentionally have Gmail set to Mail notifications off.  But I cannot recall whether that was the default or whether I chose that at one time.

Re: compatible gmail notifier with nvda

HI,

Thank you for your email, what you said is true in case that I was using the ms-outlook as an email client with Gmail, but I’m using gmail through the web interface and as far as I know windows10 (subject to correction) does hasn’t have a way to detect that a new mail ingmail to detect a new email just come in. again I’m talking when you are using an internet browser to check mail such as firefox, edge, or googlechrome.

Same here, I don’t know what you are asking. I use windows ten mail and I have my gmail on it.  If you are using windows ten. You can turn on your mail notifications and it will notify you even though the windows ten mail is not open. If that’s what you want. But in older versions of windows versions. It will notify you only if you have your whatever e-mail client you are using.  I have mine turned off because of the kind of house I live in and I find it annoying to hear the mail notifier going off.  It will go off wen you have your mail client open. That’s how I like it.  If I’m waiting for an important message I’ll turn on the notifications.  Either then that. I like it off.if that is what you are after.

Well, you could just tell an email program like Thunderbird to use your Gmail account. I'm not sure if that's exactly what you're asking though.

Hi guys/gals

 

Does any recommend a gmail notifier compatible with nvda screen reader that can notify me with a new gmail without login to gmail on the browser?

And that's because it's actually still running in the background.  There are a number of apps that have this capability.  But if you actually exit the Mail App process, those notifications will stop.  Open Task Manager if you've had the Mail App open, and even after you close the window you were using, the app is still shown in the process list if you have "more details" view showing.

That's actually what's happening on the various smartphone platforms, too, in regard to their e-mail apps.  Whether the window is actually open for reading, that app is still running in the background.  If you kill and don't restart those (which I'm not suggesting anyone do) the notifications stop on those platforms, too.
