But to you have to check the check box enabling caps lock as a modifier when using the laptop layout or is that an automatic part of that layout?  I know when using the desktop layout, you have to tab to and check that option in the dialog.

I'm not sure what the procedure is using the laptop keyboard layout for
opening the NVDA menu.  Someone on list should know the command.  There is a
quick keys reference in the help submenu.  Once you open the NVDA menu, you
can look around and find the help submenu.

Also, there are many good tutorials if you are interested.  I won't discuss
them further here unless you or others want more information.

Jolene,

I am very
interested in your
topic as I am
currently writing a tutorial for users of the
BorrowBox digital library service in
which Adobe Flash comes
in to playing
a preview of an audio book. I can forward my
recent discussion on this and the
solution to it if that
would be of
interest?

There
is a good deal of discussion
between NVDA technical team
members
on getting NVDA to work with the embedded objects in
Adobe Flash.
These are known as windowless
objects
and JAWS, for instance cannot see them at all in
FireFox but can see them but has
difficulty keeping focus on
them in
Internet Explorer.

NVDA gets around this by labelling the
embedded
oject as unavailable and
using the NVDA+numpad divide (to
move
the mouse pointer to the current navigator object)
followed by numpad divide on its own
which emulates a left
mouse clikc.

I wonder if
you could try this solution and see if
it gives you access
to the player?

I have tried
your two links with NVDA and Firefox on
windows 10 (all
latest versions) and
found the following:
KITV:
http://www.kitv.com/category/305776/live-stream
This stream started playing and sounding
in the
speakers as soon as I opened
the link in Firefox.

KHON2:
http://khon2.com/live-stream/
This link did not start and a typical
part of
the screen showed this:

" SEARCH THE
SITE
Live
Stream"

Then NVDA
said:
iFrame
'embedded Object
unavailable'
and then 'Out of iFrame' after I
pressed down-arrow once.
The stream did not
start playing automatically like the
first one. However, I
pressed
NVDA+numpad divide and then numpad divide alone and
it did start to play. Another numpad
divide stopped it.
While NVDA is
reporting the embedded object, the screen is
reporting "blank" under the
active cursor.

With these work-around
techniques ,
both streams are working on what appears to be
a similar system configuration to
yours.


What do you think?

All the best,

Cearbhall

Hello
everyone,

Adobe

such sites as:

KITV:

KHON2:

I had contacted

Just a recap: My

So my questions are
these:
1. How user-friendly is Adobe

2. What could be causing Adobe Flash

3. Is there a way for me to

Thanks so

Moderator's letter: Let us be civil in our discourses, word choice matters in a public forum, Edge thread unlocked

 

Hi all,

 

A few things here and there for now:

 

·         iTunes and Edge threads: Some people wrote to moderators regarding word choice used by some members on this forum. Although we do understand that it is a sensitive topic for some, we’d like to kindly request that you be civil in your discourses.

·         Word choice matters: As this is a public space, we’d like to request that you be careful with word choice, as archive is visible to everyone.

 

Edge thread: the thread is now unlocked.

 

Note: there will be one final notice from Joseph the moderator before he steps down from his position.

Cheers,

joseph

Re: Adobe Flash Player with NVDA

Also, I just tested the second link you provided.  That is,
I am testing on a rather slow, rather old computer.  But it may be of value to note that the stream took longer to play than most streams do and so, if that is the case on a faster modern computer, I would suggest waiting longer to see what happens.  Perhaps thirty or forty seconds.  It appears to me that you don't need to do anything on either of the sites you provided to get audio to play.  try waiting as a test for about forty seconds on each of these links.  You may have some sort of problem but I suspect some links take longer to play than you may expect because of the amount of information necessary to finish buffering or perhaps a good many redirections are occurring.
 
If you don't see any error message on screen, those may be why you have to wait longer than expected..

You know that NVDA uses Liblouis Braille Translater to display
computer texts in Braille for us. Fortunately, Liblouis has Persian
(Farsi) braille table to output Persian text in Braille.
Regarding to what I wrote, Persian (Farsi) isn't listed in Braille
input tables. There are also other languages like Persian that not
listed in the Braille input tables.
I, as a blind Persian-speaker, want to add my language Braille table
(Farsi grade 1)
into Braille input tables. and now my question is: how can I do this?
Is it necessary to add a separate Braille table for Farsi? or the
existing Farsi grade 1 table is enough?

Re: question: laptop equivalent for NVDA+numpad divide /was/ Adobe Flash Player with NVDA

Andre Fisher
 

The laptop equivalent to NVDA+NumPad slash is NVDA+Shift+M, and the
equivalent to just NumPad slash is NVDA+the left bracket key beside
the letter P on most keyboards.

For more information, please please read the user guide.

Jolene,

I am very interested in your
topic as I am currently writing a tutorial for users of the
BorrowBox digital library service in which Adobe Flash comes
in to playing a preview of an audio book. I can forward my
recent discussion on this and the solution to it if that
would be of interest?

There
is a good deal of discussion between NVDA technical team
members on getting NVDA to work with the embedded objects in
Adobe Flash.
These are known as windowless
objects and JAWS, for instance cannot see them at all in
FireFox but can see them but has difficulty keeping focus on
them in Internet Explorer.

NVDA gets around this by labelling the embedded
oject as unavailable and using the NVDA+numpad divide (to
move the mouse pointer to the current navigator object)
followed by  numpad divide on its own which emulates a left
mouse clikc.

I wonder if
you could try this solution and see if it gives you access
to the player?

I have tried
your two links with NVDA and Firefox on windows 10 (all
latest versions) and found the following:
KITV:
http://www.kitv.com/category/305776/live-stream
This stream started playing and sounding in the
speakers as soon as I opened the link in Firefox.

KHON2:
http://khon2.com/live-stream/
This link did not start and a typical part of
the screen showed this:

" SEARCH THE SITE
Live
Stream"

Then NVDA
said:
iFrame 'embedded Object
unavailable' and then 'Out of iFrame' after I
pressed down-arrow once.
The stream did not
start playing automatically like the first one.  However, I
pressed NVDA+numpad divide and then numpad divide alone and
it did start to play. Another numpad divide stopped it.
While NVDA is reporting the embedded object, the screen is
reporting "blank" under the active cursor.

With these work-around
techniques , both streams are working on what appears to be
a similar system configuration to yours.


What do you think?

All the best,

Cearbhall

Re: NVDA and Itunes 12.4.0.119

Gene
 

I'm not sure if that's true.  I've seen references to third party utilities that allow you to transfer material without using ITunes.  I don't know what their limitations may be but some people may know about them and about their accessibility.  Also, canyou cause ITunes not to upgrade automatically?  If so, it would probably be a good idea to wait when a new update comes out to see what people have to say about it.

I don't know where you live but a program like tapin Radio has a large data base of stations from all over the world.  It also allows you to record stations directly as they play, which means you don't have to tie up a sound card or use another recording program outside of tapin Radio.

Re: making a suggestion for nvda

If this is going to be done, probably the best way would be to have an apply button or something similar.  In other words, for example, after you made changes in the voice settings dialog, you could press apply and be returned to the preferences menu again.  You would be returned to the menu you entered a dialog from.  Then you could open another dialog and change more settings.  This would be slightly easier than opening the NVDA menu again but I'm not sure if it would actually make the interface more confusing for inexperienced users.  It may just be easier to tell people to make changes in one dialog, press ok, then open the menu again with NVDA key n.  We'll see what others have to say.

For those who are new to the mailing list: I’m Joseph, one of the code contributors to NonVisual Desktop Access screen reader project. I’m here to announce the immediate availability of a try build to support BrailleNote QT and Apex BT scroll wheel in braille terminal mode.

 

Since 2011, NVDA provides support for BrailleNote family of products as a braille display. Originally a community add-on, it joined the ranks of braille display drivers that ships with NVDA in 2013. Currently the braille keyboard commands are supported.

 

The purpose of building the try build is to let you see what I’ve been working on for the past few days in regards to enhancing NVDA’s support for BrailleNote family of products when used as a braille display. Specifically, the try build now accepts commands from BrailleNote QT when used in basic mode (not PC keyboard emulation) and supports Apex BT’s scroll wheel. Normally, I would not release this code very early, but I’m hoping that, by letting you try what I’ve been working on, I hope to receive feedback and real life data from many of you in hopes of making my code better and to provide a solid foundation to provide enhancements in the future. The other reason is for this offer to be a catalyst for companies such as HIMS and others to engage with customers in regards to their products being supported by NVDA.

 

Key assignments added in this try build:

 

Apex BT scroll wheel:

·         Up: up arrow.

·         Down: down arrow.

·         Left: left arrow.

·         Right: right arrow.

·         Center: enter key.

·         Scroll clockwise: tab.

·         Scroll counterclockwise: shift+tab.

 

BrailleNote QT (including Apex model):

·         Read+T: Control+Home.

·         Read+B: Control+End.

·         Arrow keys: arrow keys.

·         Read+N: NVDA menu.

·         Tab: tab.

·         Shift+Tab: shift+tab.

·         Function+left arrow: Home.

·         Function+right arrow: End.

·         Function+up arrow: page up.

·         Function+down arrow: page down.

·         Read+1: toggle input help mode.

·         Read+W: Windows key.

·         Read+M: Alt key.

 

Important notes:

·         The try build is based on latest master snapshot.

·         Please try using the try build as a portable copy.

·         On QT, some keys may result in NVDA giving you errors.

·         This does not support PC keyboard emulation mode.

 

Now, without further ado, the try build download link:

If you have any comments (feedback, questions, suggestions and what not). Please email me directly at joseph.lee22590@.... If you are on Twitter, you can send your comments to @joslee, and for those on Facebook, my ID is josephsl. Also, I’d like to propose having either a Skype or TeamTalk chat about this feature in June.

 

Thanks, and I look forward to reading your comments. Good luck.

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: how to set nvda auto read

Instead of pressing Control followed by the say all keypress, you can use the shift key to stop and restart speech.  It acts like a pause/play button once say all has started.

 

Cheers

Chris

Having pressed NVDA+down arrow (or laptop: NVDA+a) to read from the current point onwards, you can press control, to stop NVDA from speaking.  You need to press NVDA+down arrow or NVDA+a to restart from the start of the current line / element to keep reading.

 

If you press shift to pause speech (note that works with some synthesizers, such as eSpeak, but not all synthesizers), you can press shift to restart reading, although if you have used the arrow keys to navigate around the document in the meantime, you will need to press NVDA+down arrow or NVDA+a to restart reading from where you currently are.


Kind regards


Quentin.

Hi Scott,
Believe it or not, someone suggested this before, and a proof of concept
add-on is being reviewed as we speak.

Hello.
Ok, i will bring it up here to make sure it is something that not just me
would like to see, and maybe there is a way and i just need to expand my
mind with the knowledge of how to do this. smile.
You know how in settings when clicking ok when done with a section of
settings, the whole settings panel goes away? Well, it'd be nice to somehow
put things in like a list, sort of like programs like thunderbird, or at
least so one does not have to exit settings just to have to go back into
settings with nvda n to change more settings.
Yes, i know you could probably change things with keyboard shortcuts,
however, I do not know all the shortcuts to do this yet for all the possible
things you could set. So i'm just thinking it might be easier for new
people, and me alike.lol or people like me who might get confused easily
when first encountering a new program.
Thank you
Scott

Hi Scott,
The official place for filing requests and bugs is our little corner
of
GitHub: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues
<https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues>;
Ideally also search to see if the issue has already been filed.
If you'd like some feedback on the idea first then absolutely raise it
here and we can have a conversation about it and get it filed.
I can and do file issues myself, although the advantage in you filing
it is that if more information is needed or clarification on
something, it's easy to ask.
Kind regards
Quentin.

Re: NVDA and Itunes 12.4.0.119

Lino Morales
 

I'm sure it can be done. Now there is a program fro Windows called iDevice Manager. I don't know how well it works with JAWS or NVDA or WINEyes. I'm sure Aple is on it as far as iTunes. As my wife likes to say quit your bitchen! Sheesh.

Yeah that's all very well but if you want to transfer your own music for

itunes
So what do those people do?

Probably me. I just said, ITunes is not for everybody! Yes, you can use it
if you like the challenge and can manage it! Then use it. If you cant
manage it and find you can't use it in your windows box. Then just uninstall
it and be done with it. You can say to the list it just didn't work for me
but if it works for you. All the world to you!
