hi joseph,

could you add a way to reclass objects using a dialog and also give objects your own more meaningful labels? jaws and window eyes can do this already this is an area where NVDA could catch up. also maybe use tooltips in some way to help label and reclass objects if available.

Re: Yahoo password

Hi, Gene,

I agree with you that one must know how to navigate using shortcuts like "h", "e", "b", "k", etc.

But, in my case, I am not wasting my time for lack of knowledge of hoe o use NVDA, but because the mess Yahoo Mail is.

Sign in is not the problem. I am trying to change my password, so it's clear that I am already logged in.

In Yahoo Mail, even activate a menu option is tricky. The menu is composed of buttons, so I can arrive at it with "b". But there is no option to change password, even on the configuration link on the Help menu.

What you need to do is go near the top of the home page of yahoo.com
and then work your way down the mass of links/options until you get to
where it asks you to sign in.
It will first ask for your username, you@..., then hit next and
enter in your password.
Once you login, and start at the beginning of the page,  you can hit H
for headings to get to the list of options you can edit, like profile,
mail, and stuff like that. I only messed around enough to change my
password and I did that a while ago so I can't really offer a step by
step guide on how to change your password. I don't use yahoo mail and
only have the account to use yahoo groups.

Re: Yahoo password

Gene
 

I'm quite sure I saw a Hadley course discussed on one or more lists.  This was a good while ago.  It might be useful for those who know about it to verify that my memory is correct and perhaps to discuss the course. 
 
I don't think you perpetuated anything.  I wrote my first message because I wondered why you didn't mention quick navigation keys in your description.  Later, I wanted to discuss the inefficiency of not using such keys.  it wasn't particularly because of what you do, but because I have  no idea how many other people might be following the thread and I have no idea what they do or know.  But since we have discussed this now, those following the thread are well aware of our views and that is one of the points of the list, to inform through discussion and disagreements.
 
I appreciate you understanding my position and the exchange served a good purpose. 
 
The course you are discussing from Freedom Scientific is called Surf's Up.  I have no idea how it compares with the hadley course.  I looked at a small amount of it a number of years ago and my objection to the part I looked at is that it introduced such things as the links list and used such things extensively very early in the course when I strongly believe that people should be dealing with web pages and not with artificial structures for their early learning.  I don't want to discourage those who don't want to or can't take the Hadley course from using the Freedom Scientific material but if the Hadley course teaches more in the way I believe is superior, I hope that those with a choice seriously consider the hadley course.   
 
Also, for those who are interested, awhile ago, I made a zip file available for the early part of my tutorial, separated from the rest.  This early part teaches basic web page navigation and some people may want to use it.  it was created before NVDA existed so I don't cover NVDA commands but the concepts may be useful.
 
Read the introduction before working with the tutorial.  Also, keep in mind that the tutorial was done before such features as automatically entering and leaving forms mode were available.  So, depending on how you move through forms, entering and leaving forms mode, as I demonstrate, may not be necessary.  It may be automatic.  Also, these are very old web pages and may bear little or no resemblance to the current pages.  They are still good for teaching but the current pages may be quite different and may have more structures such as headings.

Thanks, but Gene is still right in the fact that people really should learn the keystrokes to navigate webpages. It is that whole give a man a fish or teach him how to fish kind of thing. I get his frustration, But I just was not expecting to perpetuate it
I don't recall Hadley having a course on using the Internet. But, I do think that freedom scientific has a tutorial for this sort of thing. It has been years since I took it though so I have no idea if it is still there. I think it was called go surf or something.

I may, but if I do, it's because I have no idea how many people may be following a thread.  Someone may explain why they do something and others may find the explanation convincing and not try other approaches.  but if they see someone vigorously presenting another method, they may continue to consider it.  I have strong feelings on this subject.  I have seen, for about fifteen years, since I started looking at how blind people use the Internet, a lot of blind people doing things very inefficiently and having needless problems finding things on web sites.  I see how small changes in a web site cause many blind people to be unable to use it.  for example, one wegb site changed a download link to a download button and, on another list, people would say they could no longer download using the site.  Things may be changing.  Perhaps there is better instructional material available these days.  But, for example, when I go to a radio station site, I don't look around the site if I only want to listen to the audio stream.  I search, from the top of the site for the word live since so many sites have a link that uses the word live.  When I want to contact someone at a site, I search for the word contact.  I'm not saying people shouldn't look at sites in detail.  There are times when I do because I either can't find what I want in my usual ways or because I want to learn about whatever the site is offering and discussing.  And, of course, people are free to do whatever they want, regardless of my opinion.  But I save an enormous amount of time by using efficient navigation.  I don't know what is available these days from free resources such as the Hadley School or how much need there is for this but perhaps information on the NVDA site should include a tutorial for using the Internet effectively.  I don't want to rewrite my tutorial to modernize it but I've offered it to anyone who wants to use it as a basis for their work.

I didn't just think about this.  I produced a tutorial many years ago that emphasized, more than anything else, effective Internet navigation.  The editorial may still be useful but it would have to be updated to discuss newer features in screen-readers.

Hi, Gene,


I can see why Melissa did what she did. I do the same thing when I'm on an unfamiliar site until I learn how to navigate it. I don't mean any offense by this but at times you do act like an irritated school master. Maybe you don't mean to do that but that's how it comes across. When I'm on the vons.com site and I want to choose a delivery time after placing my grocery order, I hit control end and arrow up until I find the time I want to choose. Then I hit enter to select the time. When I'm signing in to place the order, I do use H to go to the sign-in page. I down-arrow once to get to the edit field to type in my email address. My whole point is this. We all do things differently.

Hi, Melissa,


Yes, Hadley does have a course on learning how to use the internet. Freedom Scientific has a good tutorial on that too.

If you don't know what to search for, some sites use login, sign in, log off or sign out, and the time spent typing in possibilities to search for arrowing down could've gotten to the same place.

Sorry if I sound defensive about this. I normally use many of the keystrokes for one letter navigation in webpages and just on my computer itself and your response just rubbed me the wrong way.

and I'm able to navigate Internet Explorer using the arrow keys. However,
when I try to hit h to go by heading or b to find the next button, NVDA just
says h or b. I tried it on a couple different web pages.

Re: Yahoo password

This is a rather long message but it may have information some will find useful. 
 
I may, but if I do, it's because I have no idea how many people may be following a thread.  Someone may explain why they do something and others may find the explanation convincing and not try other approaches.  but if they see someone vigorously presenting another method, they may continue to consider it.  I have strong feelings on this subject.  I have seen, for about fifteen years, since I started looking at how blind people use the Internet, a lot of blind people doing things very inefficiently and having needless problems finding things on web sites.  I see how small changes in a web site cause many blind people to be unable to use it.  for example, one wegb site changed a download link to a download button and, on another list, people would say they could no longer download using the site.  Things may be changing.  Perhaps there is better instructional material available these days.  But, for example, when I go to a radio station site, I don't look around the site if I only want to listen to the audio stream.  I search, from the top of the site for the word live since so many sites have a link that uses the word live.  When I want to contact someone at a site, I search for the word contact.  I'm not saying people shouldn't look at sites in detail.  There are times when I do because I either can't find what I want in my usual ways or because I want to learn about whatever the site is offering and discussing.  And, of course, people are free to do whatever they want, regardless of my opinion.  But I save an enormous amount of time by using efficient navigation.  I don't know what is available these days from free resources such as the Hadley School or how much need there is for this but perhaps information on the NVDA site should include a tutorial for using the Internet effectively.  I don't want to rewrite my tutorial to modernize it but I've offered it to anyone who wants to use it as a basis for their work.

----- Original Message -----
I didn't just think about this.  I produced a tutorial many years ago that emphasized, more than anything else, effective Internet navigation.  The editorial may still be useful but it would have to be updated to discuss newer features in screen-readers. 
But effective Internet use is one of my special interests.

Hi, Gene,


I can see why Melissa did what she did. I do the same thing when I'm on an unfamiliar site until I learn how to navigate it. I don't mean any offense by this but at times you do act like an irritated school master. Maybe you don't mean to do that but that's how it comes across. When I'm on the vons.com site and I want to choose a delivery time after placing my grocery order, I hit control end and arrow up until I find the time I want to choose. Then I hit enter to select the time. When I'm signing in to place the order, I do use H to go to the sign-in page. I down-arrow once to get to the edit field to type in my email address. My whole point is this. We all do things differently.

Re: Yahoo password

Gene
 

Fields are usually announced and there may be a description that is read either when you get to the edit field or immediately above it or other fields as well.  If a field or the text immediately above it says login user name or e-mail address or something similar, unless you think you are on the wrong page or that there may be more than one place to log in to different parts of the site or different pages for logging into different parts of the site, not using efficient navigation does nothing but waste time.  If you move to a field and want more information, up and/or down arrowing around the field will often satisfy the user whether the proper field is being worked with.

I know the one letter navigation keys, but I didn't think to put those
in the list of what I did to change my password. I don't fully trust
sites I'm not all that aquainted with so when I'm investigating I
first go down line by line with the arrow keys. Yes, that is
time-consuming, but I feel comfortable doing things that way until I
learn the site better.
Plus, there are a lot of "clickable" tags so I felt it safer to just
arrow down incase I missed something. I found what I needed right away
so I admit to not looking around and experimenting more. I also don't
know this person very well so I don't know their level of
understanding for commands and thought just a straight listing of what
I did, minus keystrokes, was okay.
I thought it was helping and I wasn't expecting a lecture about my
methods to quickly get something done on a website I'm not familiar
with and just stating exactly what I did. If you don't know what to
search for, some sites use login, sign in, log off or sign out, and
the time  spent typing in possibilities to search for arrowing down
could've gotten to the same place. Normally login options for sites
are near the top so I didn't feel I needed to try and skip around with
one letter navigation.
Sorry if I sound defensive about this. I normally use many of the
keystrokes for one letter navigation in webpages and just on my
computer itself and your response just rubbed me the wrong way.

If you are looking for a link you have to follow that might sign in, you can
use the search command from the top of the page and search for what you
think might be correct. If you are talking about moving to something that
is almost at the rtop of the page, these methods may not matter but my7

What you need to do is go near the top of the home page of yahoo.com
and then work your way down the mass of links/options until you get to
where it asks you to sign in.
It will first ask for your username, you@yahoo.com, then hit next and
enter in your password.
Once you login, and start at the beginning of the page, you can hit H
for headings to get to the list of options you can edit, like profile,
mail, and stuff like that. I only messed around enough to change my
password and I did that a while ago so I can't really offer a step by
step guide on how to change your password. I don't use yahoo mail and
only have the account to use yahoo groups.

Re: NVDA remote access.

Igor Kaplan
 

Well, verified today, my configs are definitely used on the security screens
and after the security screen is on the status of remote access plugin is
"connected", however no access at all.
However, if I go to the Remote Access menu, disconnect and then connect
again, right on the lock screen, it works perfectly. It continue to work
after the computer is unlocked, however again stops after the computer is
locked. So, looks like the NVDA attempts to reconnect on the security
screen, I even hear the long beep, the indication of connection, however
there is probably something, which does not let NVDA to connect properly.
I wonder, if connections attempts are recorded to the NVDA log, I could
probably attempt to debug sometime.

All the best.

Igor.

Go to the NVDA menu Preferences/General, there is a button labelled 'Use
current settings on log-on and other secure screens' to copy them over. You
will require admin priviledges to perform this routine.

How does one "copy this set-up to the secure screen settings"?

The way I understand it is that when your work computer drops into the
secure screen it drops your user NVDA settings and loads the secure
screen NVDA settings. So if you have the remote add-on with
auto-connect set for your user NVDA settings and copy this set-up to
the secure screen settings, your work computer will drop its remote
connection when the secure screen appears but immediately re-establish
it when the secure screen NVDA settings are loaded. Similarly, when
you log into your work computer, the remote connection will drop again
and reconnect when your user NVDA settings are loaded. Your local
computer shows as being connected but this only indicates that it is
connected to the host server, not your work computer.
