Can you downdate to the previous version?

Not being a facebook user I would not know about the rest of your query, but maybe somebody on a more mainstream accessibility group or listmight have a contact at the company who design it. ods are its been written by some other lot to the original.

Subject: [nvda] The accessibility of the Facebook app for Windows 10 got completely broken after its last update


Hello all,

Up until tonight, I was happily using the Facebook app for Windows 10 to access Facebook. I saw that there was an update for it in the Windows Store and thinking that it probably got some exciting new features to try out, I've updated it. And boy, did I got disappointed. Yes, exciting new features to try out probably it has (as far as I could see from its interface change). But its accessibility was completely broken after the update. Before that, I could with a hand on my heart easily say that the Facebook app for Windows 10 was one of the most accessible apps in the Windows 10 Store (apart the ones from Microsoft that is). But after today's update, it is no longer so. Neither NVDA or Narrator can read anything in the app when it is opened. Actually, only thanks to my residual sight I was able to login with my Facebook account into the app in the first place - even that part is not accessible.

My question is. Does some of you know how can we contact the Facebook accessibility team, so we can tell them about this issue? I've tried to send feedback via the form on this web page:
https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/169372943117927
But each time I try to submit the form, I get the following error message:


Your request cannot be processed
There was a problem with this request. We're working on getting it fixed as soon as we can.
Close

Note, that I'm not looking for an alternative way to access Facebook - I can work with the Facebook desktop site if needs be. I just want the accessibility in the Facebook app for Windows 10 to be fixed, so I can resume using it with pleasure as I did before. So that is why I'm looking for a way to contact the Facebook accessibility team.

Best wishes,

@Pete,

Yes, but the required MS Visual C++ redistributables are bundled with the LibreOffice installer.

If not already present on the system they will be installed. Remember to do the installation --"run as administrator" and you should have no issues.

Re: nvda and windows 98 virtual machine?

Actually, Windoze 98 was not bad at all, living as it didas a multi tasking dos shell.

I used it for years and obviously the hardware in those days was much slower and really it was quite fast.
I used Supernova on the system as a screenreader, but to use Dos you needed a hardware synth.

Re: nvda and windows 98 virtual machine?

Brian's Mail list account BY <bglists@...>
 

No it won't there used to be an article as to why which I read, but its because Windows 98 is based around a different kernel to the XP, which was based itslef on NT. Most of the later versions of windows are also able to trace their history back to NT, but due to changes in the way certain routines work now, nvda needs at least XP sp3 to be reliable in my experience, and even then, the new accessibility UIA for XP is so full of bugs its not used by nvda in that operating stem.

Re: espeak

Brian's Mail list account BY <bglists@...>
 

Yes but many beginners have issues. If even I listen to some of the demos on cool blind tech and other sites, I find more often than not that the user has the speed turned up far too high to be understandable unless they are using the exact same voice as you are.
Often I'd prefer say, the speech platform Hazel voice to read documents to me, but the irritating number of words it needs to have in its dictionary to sound right is quite a problem, indeed in nvda and other software, that and the Microsoft sapi voices do have an annoying tendency to expand inappropriate abbreviations into the US standard not the UK ones.

Re: Issues With Number Processing or Display On Creative Labs Web Page

 

I agree, but at the same time we should be able to read stuff in the right format especially if that format was visual
I today tried to register a coffee machine aand the site contained menus which did not speak and a few other things.
I had to actually shut down nvda and get sighted help because the nvda was in the way.
And whille thats not a big issue, if sites are going to list things such that the screen reader can not read them right and we can't read them right then I do think it should be modified or at least the reader be told to read things in a particular way.
I agree its not a good idea but if a lot of things are doing this unless you shop on those sites with ie and this is not the end all solution because microsoft is going to get rid of ie for good sooner than later.

Visual Studio add-on.

Pawel Urbanski <pawel@...>
 

Dear Group,
I am currently working using Visual Studio 2015 - the latest update.
Since Microsoft introduced the Visual Studio Community edition, which
used to be Professional edition, we got a very nice IDE.
There is an NVDA add-on, which is installed by default that enhances
NVDA and VS interoperability.
The features are rather complete, but I found 2 issues:
1. When Intelisense with code suggestions popup is read, NVDA keeps
reading the number of items in a edit combo / list, which can get very
annoying / flustrating.
--- What is the way using code to silence reading this attribute? NVDA
has the opption of not reading item possition information. Can we
apply it to individual controls?

2. When leaving the previously mentioned Intelisense popup, NVDA keeps
reading the window type / title, which is way too verbose when you are
coding and keep jumping from the editor to Intelisense all the time.
--- Can we control this from the add-on code?

I am not familiar with Python on the daily basis, but can find someone
to fix the code or do it myself if the changes are minor and can
simply follow the documentation and do little trial and error.

Thanks for any hints and tips,
Pawel


Re: is BlueStacks accessible with NVDA?

mohammad suliman
 

Hi, 
If you still need help with that, the answer is yes. But you need to install google play store and then talkback from what i heard. To do this, you can ask for sited help if available. Another option is to get a configuration file which installs talkback and play store. This option doesn't require a sited help. Unfortunately i don't have that file, you can ask for it on eyes free group, think someone can provide it there

Something is set up incorrectly "post-groups" if consistent duplication is being received.  I have seen instances of this in the past when people have forwarding set up on two e-mail addresses where each forwards to the other.  The e-mail servers stop "infinite" forwarding but will do an initial forward from each e-mail.  There can also be all sorts of weirdness if one or more devices uses IMAP access and another one or more uses POP.

Whatever this is, it's not Gmail and it's not Groups.io.  I can't be any more specific than that with the information available.

Re: I want to run a program call urlwatch. which is a python program, is it accessible on Windows?

Mr. Wong Chi Wai <cwwong.pro@...>
 

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I extracted the tar.gc successfully with 7zip.
Afterwards, I have to install python?
Which version is recommended? I saw that there are both 2.7xxx and 3.5xxxxavailable on official web site.

tar.gz is indeed very commonly used on Linux machines, however it's far from
"for Linux only".

The Windows archiving program 7-Zip for example, can quite happily deal with
this format of archive, and if the content is a Python program, it can be run
on any machine with a Python interpreter - it won't be specific to Linux,
Windows, OS X, or anything else.

I have no information on whether the program URLwatch itself is accessible
once you're able to run it, though.

Well, never heard of tar.gc, but if it refers to tar.gz, that is a
package format that is for linux only

Hi,
I just find a program that can monitor webpage changes called
urlwatch. It is a source code in tar.gc and extracted as something
containing xxx.py
It seems I have to download something like python...and run that program.
I am not sure if the things is accessible. If not I will not proceed.
Thanks.


Re: Issues With Number Processing or Display On Creative Labs Web Page

I see it using an older version of NVDA and an older version of Firefox.  I haven't tested with current browsers and current screen-readers. 
 
I don't know why this is the case when I saw one number displayed correctly with a decimal point where it should be.  I don't know what a sighted person sees but if you are curious enough, you might want to look at the source and see if the numbers read correctly or if you find a possible explanation when looking at the numbers there..

Subject: [nvda] Issues With Number Processing or Display On Creative Labs Web Page

Hi Group,


I am wondering if anyone else is having this problem.  When I visit the below web page on the Creative Laqs site, I get oddities with the prices for the various products.  For example, many of the prices are ridiculously high such as $16999 for a set of small portable speakers.  When examining it closely, it seems these figures are deleting a decimal point and replacing it with the first digit after the decimal point.  So the above example should actually read $16.99.  This has happened a number of times over the years.  Here is the page.
