Not really. It works for me. The only thing I find a bit confusing is the way that it does not actually make the sound if you tab or somehow move to another edit field from an existing one. I'd kind of prefer to be told each time.

I am really struggling to toggle between the browse and focus mode when using Firefox. The shortcut "insert + spacebar" doesn't work. Has anyone else experienced this and found a solution,

I tried some links that didn't work in browse mode and they didn't work in forms mode either.  It may be that some links can be made to work as you suggest but the ones I tried didn't.

Hi Gene,


On this site, as I suspected, you must move into forms mode to access some of the clickable items.  This is true of the Tune In radio site and is on this site as well.  Even though there is no reference to a link or even on this site, the word clickable, if you go into forms mode (insert + space bar) and use the tab key, some of those links become operable.  I didn't want to chance going very far on this site--because as you have mentioned, I get all sorts of warning from Firefox that the site may not be secure.


My personal opinion is that this is a scam site and people should avoid it.

Yes there are some links that are not seen by NVDA. A sighted user told me there are some graphical links that when clicked on will bring up an order form. He was able to use the mouse to open the link, but I couldn't get it using the virtual buffer.

Re: key labeling with NVDA

There is an add on that will say that.  It doesn't tell you if anything actually has been copied, it just tells you that the command has been issued.  I'm quite sure NVDA doesn't have a key label feature.

Re: key labeling with NVDA

Gene
 

I've never used the Window-eyes feature but based on vague memories of what I heard about it years ago and the wording of the question, it appears this feature allows you to assign text to be spoken when a key is pressed.  I wonder if it can say something when a command is pressed that uses two or more keys? 
 
As far as I know, NVDA has no such feature.

What Jaws and Window-Eyes have is a feature allowing to change what is read when we press a key.
By instance, if I press PageDown, NVDA reads PageDown, and not in portuguese.
These Jaws and Window-Eyes feature allows me to change the label of that key to the portuguese name, "Página Abaixo".

Re: Firefox Browse & Focus Mode

Quentin Christensen
 

Just to add a bit more info on changing between focus and browse modes:

- If you press TAB to move onto a form field (like an edit box), NVDA will automatically switch from Browse to Focus mode.
- If you use the arrows or single letter navigation (eg E for edit box) to get there, NVDA does NOT automatically switch to focus mode (you may not want that edit box but need to get past it to the next one).

If you find yourself on a form field in Browse mode, you can press ENTER to go into Focus mode.  Similarly, when in a form field, if you want to go back to Browse mode, press ESCAPE.

If you press NVDA+spacebar, then it forces NVDA to change modes (from Browse to Focus or Focus to Browse), and from that point, will stay in whatever mode it has just changed to, until you press NVDA+spacebar to change again or a new web page loads.  This feature is particularly useful when completing a long web form which has many form fields interspersed with text and you don't want it to keep jumping between focus and browse modes.

(And yes, there are several topics on this in the Basic Training module for anyone wanting a bit more practice or info).

Regards

Quentin.

Hi Brian

In the ‘Browse  Mode’ dialog, if you uncheck the box ‘Audio indication of focus and browse modes’, NVDA says ‘Browse’ or ‘Focus Mode’ instead of using the sounds you described.

 

Cheers

I have never had NVDA announce browse versus focus mode verbally, though I imagine it could be a setting.

If I land in a field where the mode automatically changes from browse to focus NVDA plays a sound that is a high-pitched, quick electronic beep paired with a sound somewhat like keyboard key being struck.  If I switch back to browse mode by hitting NVDA+Spacebar the sound is a single alert that sounds a bit like a bell being struck.

I just tested in a couple of Firefox pages and things are behaving as expected with NVDA's default settings.  I don't get those transition sounds from NVDA when I land in an edit box, though, it announces what I've landed in and says "editable" (I think).

Re: key labeling with NVDA

Hi Don,

NVDA has a "Punctuation / Symbol Pronunciation" dialog.  Press NVDA+N to open the NVDA menu, P for preferences then P for Punctuation / Symbol Pronunciation.

There is also a "Speech Dictionary" (actually several) where you can customise the pronunciation of whole words or phrases (NVDA+N, then P then D, then choose which dictionary you want to edit).

Regards

Quentin.
