Re: There is something not right about this release of NVDA, but I can't put my finger on it

 

I have not noticed this as such.

However I have noticed this with waterfox and edge crashes.

Most of these are due to poorly coded websites like mega which sometimes screw things but I try to stay away from those.

I have not noticed in thunderbird.

However I have noticed that from time to time windows explorer will act stupid with nvda.

Saying all this, I spend most of my life in 1 window.

I close out when I do not need whatever it is.

I don't have skype, spotify, dropbox, etc running at startup or in the background.

Thunderbird I don't keep any mail inside the box but keep it outside as either eml files or text or html files.

I use and close programs for the web and mail when not in use.

Apart from games the programs I frequently use are winamp and notepad and even then I don't use it all the time.

I have noticed with things like outlook things can become a real pain, however I should have the faster cpu.

Technically my cpu is obselete since there are 3 and 4th generations of it out now but thats becide the point.

I guess while they release drivers for my chips I have nothing to be concerned about.

There seem to be a lot more issues with the newer chips anyway.

Bar vmware 16 which screwed up windows completely I have not noticed anything much more.

Mouse navigation and Chrome

Tyler Spivey
 

I'm trying to route the mouse in Chrome and am running into issues.

I'm playing incremental games that need mouse hovers to work reliably. NVDA's mouse navigation doesn't work very well.

As a very basic example which requires not too much setup, I can demonstrate this easily enough on Google.

I should be able to search Google, using mouse navigation to click the button. I'm doing the following:
1. Restart NVDA with add-ons disabled.
2. Start Chrome, navigate to google.com.
3. Type test into the search field.
4. Hit f in browse mode until I find the Google Search button.
5. NVDA+numpad / to route the mouse, and click with numpad /.

When I do this, my page doesn't change. NVDA doesn't seem to be clicking the button.

What can I do to make things work better?


Re: Having Issues with NVDA with Excel and Outlook 2016

I find that disabling "live view" in Excel helps a lot. I think it
varies from version to version, but try going to the file menu &
thence to 'options'.

Re: Having Issues with NVDA with Excel and Outlook 2016

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Bob,

Which version of NVDA are you using?  And are you using any add-ons?

I don't have Office 2016 handy, only Office 365, however when I insert rows as you describe, NVDA keeps responding.  I just tried it in a blank worksheet, I went to A2, applications key, "insert" "row", then the row is inserted and focus returns to the book and NVDA reads: "Book 1 Excel, sheet 1 table, a2" - note that I haven't created a table, despite the word being mentioned there.

In Outlook, we're aware of some issues with some newsletters, particularly those with many layout tables, although generally the issue is either too much feedback about tables and cells, or too many blank lines, rather than crashing.

We did include some improvements for Outlook particularly in NVDA 2020.3, so if you aren't using that version, please do try it at least.  Another setting which may make a difference, is an advanced setting:

1. Press NVDA+control+g to open NVDA's general settings.
2. Press CONTROL+SHIFT+TAB to move to the last tab
3. Press SPACEBAR to check that you acknowledge the warning.
4. Press TAB until you get to "Use UI Automation to access Microsoft Word Document Controls when available".
5. Press SPACEBAR to toggle that
6. Press ENTER to close settings.

Outlook uses a Microsoft Word style window to display messages in Outlook.  This setting changes how NVDA gets information from Word or Word-style controls like this.  Some things may work better, and some may not work as well, but see how you find it.

Also if you are using any add-ons, try restarting NVDA with those disabled to test that as well (NVDA+Q, then down arrow to "Restart with add-ons disabled" and press ENTER).

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: NVDA 2020 and Papenmeier new models

Quentin Christensen
 

In your Braille settings, what do you have set for your Braille input table?  If you change that does it make a difference?

Do you have a driver from Papenmeier for your display?  It's not one I'm familiar with, so I'm not sure if anything particular is required to set it up.  That it is working for output is a good start though.

If you turn on NVDA's input help - NVDA+1 - does NVDA report anything when you press the keys on the display?  Input help should read out keys and what they do, without performing any actions.  Press NVDA+1 again to turn input help off.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Do you know if someone in the dev team of nvda work on this problem?

Hi Rowen,

 

What version of Word are you using? When you get to the toolbar, does pressing f6 cycle you to the document?

 

Otherwise, try the alt key or the escape key.

Oh, I just tested out.

The problem that I mentioned here, after I disabled the notepad++ addon, the problem disappeared, i.e. search is done normally and will not speak no more search in this direction.

How can I inform the author about this issue?

I remembered that I have tried posting another issue to the github issue page, and seemed no feedback from author.

NVDA 2020 and Papenmeier new models

Viny
 

Hello, everyone.

I have two braille dispplays Braillex Trio of Papenmeier.

With nvda 2020, the braille integrated keyboard of the trio doesn't works. Only the keyborard; the braille output works very fine. Even the commands I defined myself works.

In the nvda's log in debbug level, the  entries with the braille keyboard are  not related.


Do you know if someone in the dev team of nvda work on this problem?


Re: NVDA and Notepad ++ search

Hi Group,

Well, Notepad Plus Plus finally updated on my computers. I do not see the issue described in the posts in this thread.  There is no change when I do a search using the Control + F keystroke. I am taken to the first instance of a result and pressing F3 takes me to the next instance and so on.

Hi Group,

I am using Notepad Plus Plus 7.67.X.  The 7.91.x version released on November 2 is supposedly the current stable version. However, at the bottom of the page, the following is stated:
"if no major issues are found, auto updater will be triggered in few days."  I wonder if there may be some issue with the latest version. I usually wit until the auto updater kicks in and then i UPDATE.

Gene,

I have just tried using Narrator but Narrator seemed unable to navigate within the document area of Notepad ++

I do not have another screen reader except Narrator.... I cannot try this with another one.

Can any one else confirm this as a nvda bug or notepad ++ bug?

Thanks.

No, but I doubt this is an NVDA problem. Its probably a Notepad problem since that is a Notepad command. You can check this by testing with another screen-reader.

Re: Cannot edit comments in Word with NVDA #advisory

Hi, Pranav,


It is true, not limited to the first two, it may be the first three or more, but there is always a chance to become what I said.
When I select "Edit Comment", the normal situation should be to display the edit field of the comment, but my current situation is that NVDA only reports the "Toolbar"


Re: BluetoothAudio addon

 

Had to resort to a web search for my own sanity, and Audio Ducking does indeed exist:
Audio Ducking Mode

Key: NVDA+shift+d

On Windows 8 and above, this option allows you to choose if NVDA should lower the volume of other applications while NVDA is speaking, or all the time while NVDA is running.

  • No Ducking: NVDA will never lower the volume of other audio.
  • Duck when outputting speech and sounds: NVDA will only lower the volume of other audio when NVDA is speaking or playing sounds. This may not work for all synthesizers.
  • Always duck: NVDA will keep the volume of other audio lower the whole time NVDA is running.

 

This option is only available if NVDA has been installed. It is not possible to support audio ducking for portable and temporary copies of NVDA.

Re: BluetoothAudio addon

 

Do you have audio ducking turned on in NVDA?  That may be the issue.  Now, having said that, I'll be darned if I can find that setting, and I could swear it exists, but maybe I'm conflating something from JAWS.

If that exists, and you find it and changing it doesn't fix anything, consider using the Silenzio utility instead of the add-on.

BluetoothAudio addon

Eilana Benish
 

Hello everyone

we have noticed that when using the BluetoothAudio addon, the sound from other devices becomes low and after one minute more or less , the sound turns to be very high .

this issue occurs even when NVDA is on speech mode off.

after disabling the BluetoothAudio addon, this issue of the sound being very low and then returns to be very high is gone.

so, I would like to ask if there is anything that can be done about this because this add on is very very important

thanks in advance
