Re: possible long-standing bug

Gene
 

NVDA reads the top line if there is print on it. While people who use JAWS grow used to such announcements as top, they really aren't necessary in my opinion.

I can't say how others would react if such speech were added or if it should be added as default behavior. I consider it to be annoyingly intrusive.

I can't comment on Excel (spelling) in terms of what feedback may be important but when moving through a list of files, the top one is announced when you move to it and the bottom one is. I already discussed documents.

You can read about and down load the add-on at:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/numpadNavMode.en.html

The add-on allows the user to use numpad insert numpad 2 for read to end. This may be a real convenience to JAWS users who are used to constantly using that command. I have long thought that it should be made available in NVDA because it is such a convenient way of initiating read to end. I can move up and down by line using numpad 8 to move up and numpad 2 to move down and use insert numpad insert 2 to initiate read to end when I get to where I want to do that. Not only is it more convenient than any means available in NVDA without changing input commands, but it is important for people with problems using two hands. It is a very convenient one-hand command to initiate read to end.

I think this is important enough that this add-on should be incorporated into the core and that it be discussed on the transition page for JAWS users and in the manual and training material.

I don't have any add-ons on this copy of NVDA, the only one I ever
used was the OCR one on my desktop. I'll have to look into the add-on
that changes the numpad functions, as I'd like to be able to fully use
the normal numpad functions when running NVDA. What's that add-on
called? Even without it, some of the Windows commands work that use
the numpad's Windows functions, but what I'd like is for NVDA to give
some kind of feedback about that. JAWS says "top of file" and System
Access simply reads the first line when the command is pressed to go
to the top of the file. NVDA says nothing until another action is
taken. I'm not familiar with what JAWS says when switching sheets in
Excel as it's been years since I've used those two programs together,
but System Access says the name of the sheet as soon as you press the
command to change sheets, while NVDA requires a press of an additional
command to make sure that you have indeed switched sheets.

The add-on is evidently being used that disables the numpad in its default
functions for NVDA review commands. If this is done, NVDA 7 does function
as home, its default function in Windows if no program is using that key
for
its own purpose. It should be specified that the add-on is being used if
it
is. Saying something like have the numpad off is confusing and isn't
accurate. The numpad is functioning, it is performing its Windows

things as expected if I use the actual buttons, but if using the
numpad, it does not. For instance, with the numpad off, 7 acts as the
home key, with control+home moving to the top of the file. It's been a
while since I've tried this using the actual home key, but while
control+numpad 7 works as expected, there is no verbal indication that
it does so, it's only by using the arrow keys to move around the
document that you are made aware of the position change. Something
similar happens when switching sheets in Excel. The commands are
control+page up (numpad 9) and control+page down (numpad 3) to switch
between sheets. However, NVDA does not say the name of the sheet you
are working with until you take some other action on the sheet.

Re: problem while useing Orbit reader braille display

 

Not that it is in any way inappropriate to mention having a problem here, and trying to determine if others are having it, but this is definitely not the place to try to make a bug report if you want the development team at NVDA to know about it and address it.

NVAccess manages NVDA on GitHub, and end users can create a GitHub account so they can then submit bug reports.  If you need additional information on that I can give it if requested.

There was a topic in 2019 on an issue with the Orbit 20 and NVDA, see:  Orbit Reader 20 and NVDA 2019.2
that could potentially be applicable here.  Have a look to determine that for yourself.

Log files or log file segments are not to be posted to the group.  It's fine to say you have one that can be sent to an assistant upon request, but please do not post logs or segments of logs on the group.  Attachments of any sort are stripped for messages sent to the NVDA Group.

Microsoft Raul Spanish voice Missing from NVDA?

Good morning,

I installed the Spanish voices from the add a TTS language section of Windows 10. When I go to my voice settings in narrator, I find that Microsoft Raul is listed. But when I go to NVDA, I don't see him there. Am I missing a step? Thanks a lot.

Re: NVDA OCR and what it presents afterward

 

Topic has been retitled for clarity and archival purposes.  Please make ongoing responses to messages with the new title.

I actually did not know that NVDA OCR presents a page at a time.  This is most likely because my standard advice is to do OCR processing before opening a document, usually PDF, in a screen reader.  Using that technique creates a text layer for the entire document prior to it ever being handed to the screen reader, and you get a result that's the one you're asking for here.

NVDA Navigation Using Touch Gestures and Setting Up Custom Gestures

Khalid Anwar
 

Moderators Note:  I am allowing this topic because it does contain questions specific to NVDA that deserve answers.  That being said, copy and paste are operating system functions, as is, in the case of IOS, the Rotor.  Please stick to the NVDA aspects here.  If in depth discussion of the touch gestures for Windows functions is required, those would best be asked either on the Chat Subgroup or the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users Group (and would be territory not yet asked about much at all).

I'm thinking about trading in my iPad for a Microsoft surface tablet, because I like the idea of having a windows machine that can be both a laptop and tablet combined.
But I do have some concerns about NVDA touch gestures and was wondering if anyone might be able to help.

One thing I wanted to know was how to select copy and paste text using only the touchscreen and touch gestures with NVDA if such a thing is possible,  The other thing is that I know NVDA doesn't have a rotor like iOS so how do you select different granularities to navigate by such as buttons links and headings, how do you then use these to navigate the webpage, what gestures are required? Also, I've looked in the manual for some information about the input gestures dialogue but just wanted some advice, what gestures can you select and how much programming knowledge do you need in order to set up a custom gestures?

Per documentation whichI hope is present in the manual, the document only shown 1 screen at a time. If and only if the document can show up on 1 screen will the whole thing show up else you only see the screen with maybe that one sentence that ocr was able to capture.

Re: possible long-standing bug

I didn't make this clear in my last message. Whenever an add-on is being used or something else is being used or done that might alter the effect of how something works, it should be stated in a message dealing with the thing or process that is altered. Even if it seems unimportant, it should be stated that this or that is being used. While I said in my last message that is inaccurate to talk about the numpad being off, even if that had been stated, saying that the add-on is being used would have made what is being described completely clear to those who know what the add-on does.

Re: possible long-standing bug

NVDA doesn't say something like home or top. You can tell by context and by knowing the command. You can have home spoken by turning on the speak command keys option in the keyboard settings, but I really don't think you want to do that, That option is so overly verbose that it is useless, speaking every time you press an arrow key, backspace, control arrow key, etc. There is no option for people who want certain specific commands spoken such as home and end and not have other commands spoken.

Hi all,
Please forgive me if I'm reporting in the wrong place, but I've
noticed a bug that has been kind of annoying since I've been primarily
using a laptop. I'd have to investigate whether or not NVDA reads
things as expected if I use the actual buttons, but if using the
numpad, it does not. For instance, with the numpad off, 7 acts as the
home key, with control+home moving to the top of the file. It's been a
while since I've tried this using the actual home key, but while
control+numpad 7 works as expected, there is no verbal indication that
it does so, it's only by using the arrow keys to move around the
document that you are made aware of the position change. Something
similar happens when switching sheets in Excel. The commands are
control+page up (numpad 9) and control+page down (numpad 3) to switch
between sheets. However, NVDA does not say the name of the sheet you
are working with until you take some other action on the sheet.

possible long-standing bug
