  insert numpad 7 does not cycle threw options for me 

  the first press gets me screen review  the second press gets me no previous review mode 

  insert numpad 1 works simularly  the first press gets me object review and the next pres gets me no previous review mode 

  This is using nvda latest running on windows 7 64 bit pro.

It's easier, in my opinion, to demonstrate how object navigation works than to try to explain it.  After it is demonstrated, an explanation might be helpful but I learned how to use object navigation by experimentation with very little reliance on explanations. 
 
Do the following:
This discussion uses the desktop keyboard layout.  I don't use the laptop layout and am notfamiliar with it. 
Issue the command numpad insert numpad 7.  That is, hold numpad insert and while doing so press 7.  Do this until you have moved through the review options you can move to in that way.  Then move back using numpad insert numpad one.  Stop at object navigation. 
Now, open some simple program everyone has on their computer.  Let's use Notepad. 
Write the word "test."
Now, issue the command numpad insert numpad 4.  You will move from the document window to another part of the program. 
Now issue the command numpad insert numpad 6.  You are back in the document window again.  You have moved first to a different object, then back to the document window, the object you started on.
Now issue the command numpad insert numpad 8. 
You have moved out of the document window and are now at an object that says untitled notepad window.  Move up again with the same command.  I'm not sure what you will hear depending on your version of Windows.  You may hear desktop window.  Try moving to the left and right by object with numpad 4 and 6. At least on my machine, I hear no next, no previous.  
So move down one level again with numpad insert numpad 2.  On my machine, I can't move to the left but I can move to the right from where I am.  If I move to the right enough times, I get to untitled notepad window again.  
Move down once to get back into the Notepad program.  Start moving to the right, I don't think you can move to the left.  If you move enough times, you will be back in the edit field with the word test you wrote awhile ago.
 
The point is that you first moved to the window, then continuing to move down you moved into the window and then moved right object by object until you got back into the edit field.  
 
Experiment and look around.  You may find that by looking around and experimenting, things start to make sense as you conceptualize what you are doing as you move.  
Try moving around using the move left and right commands and moving up and down and then using the move left and right commands.  Note that you can move to a lot of structures.  Some you can move into and some you can't because you are already in them.
 
If you get lost, you can always return to the program window where you started by alt tabbing out of and then alt tabbing until you return to the window. 
 
This demonstration may not explain things technically precisely accurately in terms of definitions.  I'm not sure I know exactly how to explain everything technically accurately.  The point is to experiment and get a concept of what you are doing by experimentation and observation.    
 
This may or may not allow you to understand everything.  But this kind of experimentation, along with working with a good tutorial section that explains object navigation may allow you to understand it.
 
Also, note carefully that if you leave NVDA set to screen review, you can't review the screen accurately much of the time if you intend to move somewhere and then use the standard review commands such as numpad 8 read current line.  You must have NVDA set for object navigation to have review work reliably.  I have said before that most NVDA users don't and won't understand this and that you should automatically be returned to object review when you leave the window you are in.  I still feel strongly about this.

Did you set default programs for windows 10? Windows 10 seems like you have to do this from it's own default program settings. I had to do this with winamp.

I followed the instructions in the mesage below to copy the current

checkbox to have NVDA work at that screen. Now after making some
changes, including setting Windows to never slep, it boots directly into
the logon dialogue and says Configuring Windows. That is the NVDA

Secure desktop is the desktop for things like UAC screens, and the

This uses a completely different NVDA profile, with a separate
speech/braille config. By default it's set to espeak.

My first guess is your machine is going to sleep, and it's asking for
your password when it wakes up. You can turn off sleep in the power
options.

If you want to copy the current configuration to the secure desktop, so
it uses the same speech/braille settings as the logged in NVDA, you can
do that.
* Press ctrl+NVDA+G, to open the NVDA General settings.
* Press the button that says Use currently saved settings on the logon
and other secure screens (requires administrator privileges).
* If the secure desktop appears during this process, it's probably an UAC
prompt. Press alt y.
If you want NVDA to work at the logon screen, the General settings dialog
has a checkbox for that as well.

Re: Some issues with NVDA's reading

  Hi 

  It sounds like it isn't nvda incorectly reading but rather the rules for each language.  I am not sure if espeak has separate rule files for each language.

Hi !

It’s true that a space before a question mark is syntactically incorrect in English, but it is correct in French, where any punctuation symbols made up of two parts, such as the question mark and the colon, the latter being two dots above each other, are always separated from the last word of the sentence. I personally can’t think of any languages where doubole question marks are the norm, but even in English some people right multiple exclamation marks.

Given what I wrote above about the French standard for question marks, I don’t think NVDA should automatically read a question mark if it is separate from the last word of a question, as that may well annoy French users of NVDA, or even multilingual users like me. So it’s probably better that anyone who wants a separated question mark to be spoken for proof-reading should either review the ends of their questions character by character, or tweak their punctuation settings somehow. That’s just my opinion: I have no problems with questions in English, French or German, the three languages I use myself.

Bye for now!

Chris,

            And what I'm telling you is that the first version of the question does not read correctly, to my ears, in either NVDA or Window-Eyes and the second two read precisely the same way.

            Since double exclamation points and double question marks (and/or combinations thereof) are not uncommon I have no issue with a screen reader reading these without any extra string of punctuation.

            I agree that a terminal space before the question mark itself is syntactically incorrect and the words should be read followed by "question mark" announcing the punctuation.  There is no case in written English that I know of where a question mark can "free float" and be syntactically correct.  It is always firmly attached to the final word in a question construction.

Hi Pranav,



Firstly, the ideal solution here (even using Jaws to be honest), is to
convince people not to use text boxes.



NVDA doesn't currently have a direct keystroke, it's something we could
look into. For now, though, there are still a couple of ways of reading
text boxes currently:



If the text boxes are positioned "in line with text", they can be found
within the text of the document. Currently they are identified as "slash"
though that's something we're working on.



Once you are in a text box (or picture or other object) you can press TAB
to move between them. You can add a text box into a document by pressing
alt+n, x, enter then press escape once (so you are out of the text itself
but the text box is still selected), then you can press TAB to move between
the objects in the document (this wraps so if you press TAB on the last
object in the document it will jump back to the first object). Be sure to
either delete the text box you added or not save changes to this document!



You can also use the accessibility checker, which is handy for finding
things but I'll warn you it's not the most direct route: In Word 2016 you
can get to this from the "tell me what you want to do" edit box by pressing
alt+q and typing "check", but from 2013 (or from 2016) you can press alt+f
(file menu), then i (info tab), then i (inspect document) then down arrow
to check accessibility. This opens the check accessibility task pane but
unfortunately puts the focus back in your document so you need to press
F6. This shows any accessibility issues, so if you down arrow through the
details it will say "Warning" then "objects not inline", then "text box 2"
(not sure why, they all seem to be called text box 2?). Press enter on
that text box and press SHIFT+F6 to jump back to your document with the
text box selected (this works the same as the previous method of adding a
new text box but without changing your document. It is more cumbersome
though, I'll not deny that!).



Kind regards



Quentin.

I tryed reloding plugins in the nvda tools menu and lost the ability to read thunderbird messages, or atleast the one I was writing to the list befor this one. Insert stil reports the title incorectly in windows explorer. I had firefox and thunderbird opened since last night. I do not have any adobe products installed nor do I have any of the java software installed. I only have important updates selected in windows update, and dot net is the same as what came with windows 7 pro 64 bit. I didn't try restarting nvda but wil try it now.

When I have firefox, thunderbird and windows explorer opened in windows 7 pro 64 bit and nvda latest running insert t will give me the incorect title when pressed in windows explorer. Insert t will report the title as one of the firefox window s that is opened. Closing windows explorer and reopening it will not fix the problem. Neither will going to view and refresh.

Hi.

I have noticed a problem wich i gues is NVDA-related. Because when I'M visit.

www.sj.se

vich is Swedish railway-company. In that calender i can not toggle betwean month when i made a booking using NVDA anf Firefox. But if i use NVDA and IE, Jaws and firefox it i can se the buton next and previus. but not NVDA and firefox. for some reason i cant se those butons.

There is even an english version wich you can change to in the top of the site. So i would be glad if some developer can have a look at this.

Hi Brian:
Alt-n will not work in Firefox, because it is an Internet Explorer
command.
The way I usually get to that message in Firefox is to press the f6 key
twice.

Chris,

This is a SWAG based on my experience with JAWS and IE, but
when a notification bar such as the one you mention pops up in IE the
command ALT+N throws focus to it. Give that a try and see if it works
in
Firefox. Either way, please report back on your finding.

Hi Gene:

I totally agree with you.

it takes a lot of continued work and resources to create such a program and

it's unfortunate that as programs come out with new versions, those that are
accessible often become less or inaccessible but while that is occurring,
some are becoming more accessible, at times because the developers are
working on accessibility for the program. I would much much rather have a
commercial program that I can see reviewed, which is made by a corporation
who does it for their business, then have some amateur programmers make
their own program.

And to add weight to my argument, one such program, I believe its open
source, is clam. It is poorly reviewed and I wouldn't use it.

Hello:
I guess I know the answer to my question. But! I will ask it anyway.
There are a number of blind programmers/developers out and about. Why
have they not been able to create a blind friendly anti-virus program? If
it is a money issue? Why not seek funds from groups who will donate to
worthy projects? Why don't blind developer/programmers offer their
expertise and knowledge to the anti-virus developers?
I know that they are not good. But, I've seen some open source
anti-virus projects. So, it is possible to try and work on an anti-virus
project without requiring too much funding!
I do hope that at some point these issues will be dealt with so that
this topic would not come up so often on this list!

Re: NVDA not reading table in MSWord

Quentin Christensen
 

Oh that's ok - there were several things you ran into there and that
always compounds things! Sometimes just restarting (the app, the
computer, the user) does wonders even when it shouldn't seem to make a
difference.

All the best!

What a magnificent reply! I will keep this nearby for future reference. I
look forward to the full document when it comes out.



Strangely, something has changed! I now find that I can read the offending
table. I spent about four hours yesterday struggling with various ways of
reading the document and getting a full analysis of how the table was
created.



As I reported last night, I found that I was able to read word documents
without any trouble by the end of the evening. Prompted by your request this
morning, I went to the original file attachment, saved it again, unblocked
it and tried the table in both browse and focus modes. I was surprised to
find that now the reading command works fine (control+alt+arrow keys).



The start-up screen is just as you describe, so I will try to remove that as
you instruct.



I apologise for raising an issue that has just evaporated! However, I
welcome the advice which you have given today.

Re: NVDA giving script errors with Internet Explorer

Jacob Kruger
 

Are you sure this isn't just an IE error on that page?


Under advanced settings, under tools menu, internet options, you can tell IE not to render/display script error warnings, and, this relates to javascript errors in the page itself.


Stay well

Hi Kurt


I experience the same problem and it makes things rather difficult for my students when working in form fields.  I am not sure what causes the problem, but when it gives the error, just press Alt+Y and you should be able to continue with whatever you were doing.

Hi my name is Kurt,

I have the latest version of NVDA 2016.2.1 and experience a script error using the caps lock key.When I hit capslock on page Error "An error has occurred in the script on the page.

Error: Invalid calling object." 

Only happens with NVDA on in IE.

Issue doesn't happen in google chrome or firefox with NVDA on.

I am using Window 10 with the latest version of Internet Explorer.
