focus on window with nvda

William Brandes <williambrandes@...>
 

hi. question. how to focus on a window that pops up when clicking on
some link in the main window?

i find this often when i login to a website. or, also when working
with the kindle book downloader in my kindle management on amazon.

in both cases after clicking on a link another window pops up which i
can find rummaging around with a mouse, but, must be a way to do this
with just a keyboard.

any help would be appreciated ... william

I've used ms Access in SqlView to create tables and run queries, so a blind person can get some use from the database side, it's just the design tools that cause problems.

In my experience with both JAWS 12 and JAWS 14 Access 2010 is not very
accessdible for blind people. There are many things that JAWS doesn't
read which it used to read in JAWS 6 and Access 2003. For instance,
setting up a design view has to be done by memory, because the
headings and fields are not read.

From my limitted experience with NVDA, after a little bit of
experimentation, it reads more in the design view and the table than
JAWS did, although there is room for improvement. Queries, forms and
reports haven't been accessible since Office 2003 and JAWS 6 or 7 - in
fact, forms and reports have been rather difficult for blind people
since before Access 2003. Note that I haven't tried setting up forms,
queries or reports in Access 2010 yet, so I don't know how they
compare, but it would help if NVDA would read the field headings in
Access as the row and column headings in Excel and Word.

I would have thought it was obvious really.
Just use the word device instead of desktop then it could be used should any other platform be deemed suitable for a product.

Re: Name Change Query

Michelle, you're not missing anything. I think people just want to stir up
controversy when things get too quiet or normal. Don't accept or believe
anything on an administrative level like that unless Joseph Lee or Nimer
make an official announcement, or you read it from James Teh on the blog or
Twitter. When things start like this from the user level, it's more often
than not, just hearsay, and can safely be dismissed as rumor. When something
is going to be officially discussed, such as the migration to the new list,
it will always start at the administrative level, which is why we heard from
Joseph Lee first on that topic to open that discussion.

Google+ and Photos Accessibility

Hi NVDA-users,
Has anyone used plus.google.com or photos.google.com recently? I am wondering how easy they are to use with NVDA?
Thanks!

good and accessible program for downloading videoclips

Георги Ламбов <obichamlegiona@...>
 

Hi people!
I used freemake video downloader and freemake video converter, but today
I couldn't start them and went to see where's the problem. And the
problem was that my avast discovered treats on both ones. I decided it's
better to keep my laptop and now I'm looking for such the program again.
I'm looking for program which eventually is able to download from more
videowebsites. Thanks in advance!
Cheers!

Re: nvda giving an invalid address

Gene
 

I doubt this is the issue in this case.  I have seen, I believe on this list, occasional complaints that some links can't be followed in an e-mail program using NVDA but can be followed using other screen-readers.  This sounds like a variant of that problem.  The person who asked the question says that the installed version of NVDA works on these links. 
I don't recall seeing any resolution for any of these kind of complaints people have asked about.

The usual issue is that the link is being split and maximising the window
often makes them work. As to how nvda would do this has me stumped. It
should not affect the maximise status of a window in aanother program unless
you have a rogue add on in the none working one and not in the working one
of course.

Good afternoon list; Marv here.  I am having a minor issue, also.  When
using the portable copy of nvda on a usb stick, when going to an addon link
in an e mail message, I get a message that says the address is invalid.  The
only way I can get it to work is to copy the link to the clipboard and then
paste it in.  On the installed copy things work all right.  This happens on
a couple other links, also.  If anyone has a resolution, it would be
appreciated.

Hi Paul

This is the help text from the remote add-on.  I think it could be adapted to do what you want to do.

 

Remotely Controlling an Unattended Computer

Sometimes, you may wish to control one of your own computers remotely. This is especially helpful if you are traveling, and you wish to control your home PC from your laptop. Or, you may want to control a computer in one room of your house while sitting outside with another PC. A little advanced preparation makes this convenient and possible.

1. Enter the NVDA menu, and choose Tools, then Remote. Finally, press Enter on Options.

2. Check the box that says, "Auto connect to control server on startup".

3. Fill in the Host and Key fields, tab to OK, and press Enter.

4. Please note: the Generate Key option is not available in this situation. It is best to come up with a key you will remember so you can easily use it from any remote location.

 

 

Cheers

Chris

hi, my mother has most problems in the software so it is easy to solve her problems.
she has a limited hand function and that's the reason i help.
she is 89 years old and it is difficult some thing to understand for her.
so my question is stil there, is it possible to startup nvda with remote automatically start while in mode that i can help her when she starts nvda?
cheers

I am not sure, while I generally help over skype, over the phone or via a remote link if the system is really bad I still find that its easier at times especially if the issue is vast to go there or get the system brought to me to look at.
It may be nothing, or it may be a lot of things.
