Re: Help me doing this

Pete <emac00@...>
 

No problem, glad I could help!
Are you using nvda number pad cursor to read with
or
are you using the normal arrow keys to read?

Try setting in nvda
Preferences
Voice settings...
Punctuation/symbol level: all
When Punctuation symbol level is set to all the arrow keys should announce all arrow key presses.
If not there might be a problem in the nvda installation.
I have mine set to some.
The nvda reading cursor reading character by character reads all.
I am not sure if I miss being able to set Punctuation symbol level for different cursors like in jaws.

Thanks a lot Pete, you saved the day!

Any ideas on how do I make nvda read all the punctuation during say
all or while reading line by line? I need it as while coding, it
doesn't reads all the punctuation marks when I read line by line, so
I have to move character by character, and that takes a lot of time.

Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
Ajay

the insert + plus keys on number pad moves the nvda review cursor to

Re: Performance degradation in current Firefox

probably the best idea is to search in google about what settings can help with performance and if it refers to an about:config setting search for this setting to know what it do, and if sounds convenient try with the config.

My problem with Firefox is that I am no longer able to use the BBC iplayer. Every time I try to listen to something, I get a message telling me that the Adobe flash plugin has crashed. This particular plugin is up to date and I have been having this problem since early December. I know this is not anNVDA issue but would be greatful if anyone has any ideas on how I can sort this out. I have been using Firefox as my primary browser now for nearly 9 and a half years.

The thing I am describing is worse with nvda 2016.
What used to happen to me was nvda wouldn't stop talking.
I just wouldn't be able to use fire fox for around same time may be a bit less.
I would be able to use other running programs.
I would be able to hit the start button and go do some thing else from there.
Now when I open a p d f document link from e-mail:
nvda stops working
nvda stops talking for a minute or longer,
nvda says nothing when I try to use other programs running or not.
So no access until p d f or fire fox finished doing it's thing.
I like previewing p d f in Firefox. nvda reads it nicely from fire fox.
I don't have a super powerful computer.
It's a 5 or 6 year old h p z400 workstation w quad core xeon processor running at 2.7 g h z 3 g b ram, one t b boot drive 64 m b cache with windows 7 64 bit.

Nvda can have what I can only discrube as a focus issue.
It seems to loose focus on the desktop or something where I then get hitting esc and start menu starts, if I hit esc the desktop appears but only half way.
It happens when I exit bt sync 1x and skype latest to sometimes and I have to fix it with an nvda restart.
Its happened to much yesterday, at first I thought it was a virus but no virus and no malware as far as malwarebytes says so I know I am in the clear.
from time to time I hear hardware disconnecting and reconnecting, but I am sure its probably because I am exhausting my usb's power unit with my keyboard, its an old chinese usb I got ages ago and probably needs an upgrade to handle itself so I am not worrying so much, it works well enough for what I need it for.
It usually only happens once every few days but yesterday it happened just to much for my liking, at least 10 times.
I had a lot of work to do that day, its not happened yet today but that doesn't mean it won't.
Luckily I am almost finnished for the day.
I have noticed though that firefox has included a feature called hello I am not sure what this beta plugin does but its a mozilla thing.
I have via ccleaner turned it off and now firefox hasn't crashed yet though it may, I really should upgrade my hub as I am flogging it right now but oh well.

Re: Suggestion for upcoming NVDA build

Hi Chris
What I am talking about is the snap shot versions of nvda check for snap shot updates them selves.
In that way the normal nvda dist users could just go on using the normal nvda dist with out worrying if it will update to a snap shot.

How hard would it be from the official build, like in this case, 2016.1,
to put an option in the NVDA menu, maybe under Tools, that automatically
like downloading updates would let the user download and install the
latest snapshot build rather than them having to go out to the web site
and manually get it. Either that, or maybe under the General tab of
preferences, where you have the box to check or uncheck for checking for
updates, maybe have another one that says download snapshot builds when
updating.
What do you all think?

What you are talking about is
you will be reading a block of text and you will only get a few seconds to read it before the page refreshes and every thing goes wonky.

Microsoft isn't necessarily retrofitting it.  When Edge was released, it wasn't complete and at least one review and I would imagine more, state that it is not finished yet and that it will be a good browser when it is but that it still has rough spots currently.

Quick update: It gets stranger still.
After updating to the Canary version of Chrome, I get the message "unknown" repeatedly, easily five or more times, every time I navigate using a link or url. Also, using the arrow keys in focus mode on inbox.google.com announces the element I am leaving, not the one I am navigating to. Observed on two systems. Back to IE it is, at least until MS lets us use Edge. Why in the case of Edge they regard accessibility as something to retrofit into a product once everything else is dealt with is anyone's guess. It's more expensive this way.

Hello list!
Is anyone else experiencing sluggish behavior in Firefox 45? Specifically, the following occurs for me with NVDA, but may or may not be related to NVDA of course:
- NVDA randomly repeating the Window title
- Navigation sometimes bounces back to the previously selected element if I go too fast. When navigating very slowly this does not occur. By navigation, I refer to the arrow keys and also to quick nav keys like h for heading and k for link.
- Responsiveness is generally slow when arrowing around in complex web pages like Facebook, Youtube etc.
I am suspecting NVDA is involved to some extent as the affected key commands are interpreted by NVDA rather than by FF.
Has anyone experienced this, and found a way to recover?

Some issues with Windows 8.1

 

Hey everyone,

While using NVDA on my Surface 3 running Windows 8.1, I noticed the following issues.

1. From time to time NVDA won't announce the item selected in File Explorer.

2. From time-to-time NVDA won't read items on the start screen (I actually posted about this back on freelists).

3. In the Command Prompt, NVDA reads all commands character-by-character, which is very annoying.

Is there fixes for the above issues? For the start screen issue I can use Classic Shell, but when I try typing a folder to open, E.G Downloads, it is usually not placed on the top of the search result, unlike with Windows 7's start menu where folders like 'Downloads' are placed on the top of the search result.

Hi!
Accessibility-wise, Chrome remains out of the question for me. I type an URL and hit enter, and the website will not be navigated to automatically by the screen reader. I have to do NVDA+F5 and sometimes tab, f6 and such. It's hit or miss, and more miss than hit. Others, strangely enough, seem blissfully unaffected by all this while I keep running into it on every system. Whatever it is I'm doing wrong, it seems difficult to pin down. Suggestions appreciated, though.
Seems we're headed for a browser crisis.
Kind regards,

Hello list!
Regarding Hangouts, has anyone found a way to get rid of the random announcement of lots and lots of timestamps?
Kind regards,

By forms mode, remember, that is JAWS termanology.  I think NVDA calls it browse mode, so don't get confused.  Same thing though.

This should help a lot. If I'm correct, you need to be in forms mode for these commands to work.
