Hi Michael,


What weather add on are you talking about? The old one was the one you have to edit the py file for your zip/postal code. With the newer one, the more complex one, you need not do this. Visit the NVDA add on page for the newer one. It is truly remarkable.

Hi,

You will need to use the mouse to navigate the installer. Activate mouse tracking and the indication and you should be able to navigate it.

Hi,
Please, please, tell me there's a way that my husband and i can get rid of this on our own as totally blind people? We have the latest version of JAWS as well as the latest version of NVDA and will use whichever one will let us do this and are using Windows 10. When my husband got an iCloud update this program got on our computer and it now is preventing us from updating to the latest TWBlue or using it at all. It's also slowing the computer down somewhat too. We have and use Viper and are amazed it allowed this on here. The program is not accessible with either JAWS or NVDA and we've tried to remove it the normal way to remove a program with no success. If anyone can help or knows anything about this, please email me either privately or on list? Thanks.

In relation to Google Chrome and NVDA

Dejan Ristic
 

Hi,


The previous and the current version of Google Chrome have changed some accessibility features in nvda.


When I do the facebook search, and when I use the up and down arrow keys, I am no longer able to hear the word "list" spoken before the found name is pronounced. The only thing I can hear is the same name pronounced when I up and down the list. Next, it is simply impossible for me to go through the list of names found. The same goes for the Opera browser. Compare these two and Mozilla Firefox, and you will understand me.


when I use Google Translate via Chrome and/or Opera, I am unable to hear the names of the languages spoken while I'm in the language list. The only words I can hear are: "list submenu collapsed" and "list submenu expanded". Compare Chrome and Opera with Mozilla, and you will face the difference. Let me also say that Internet explorer 11 is as accessible to NVDA as Mozilla Firefox in the mentioned cases.


I use the latest version of NVDA and the latest version of both Chrome and Opera.


My operating system is: Windows 7 Ultimate, 64Bit, SP1.


Thankful in advance

Dejan

Hi Chris
I listened to joseph's presentation and from what I understood, on the 1507
version of W10after pressing Windows+i, initial focus is given to the list
of settings categories. In 1607, initial focus is given to the search
settings box. In both versions you can search settings using keywords to
obtain results enabling you to access the particular settings you are
interested in.

Cheers

Using Adobe Acrobat?

 

Hello,
Does anyone know of any tutorials on how to use Adobe Acrobat Pro with NVDA?
Here are the things I can't figure out:
1. How to OCR.
2. How to Sign and create my own signature.
3. How to create editable fields in an already existing PDF.
4. How to edit a PDF with spelling errors from OCR.
5. How to create formatting like headings.

FW: [win10] Accessible World presentation on Anniversary Update: technical version and clarifications

 

Hi,

After the Accessible World presentation, I felt certain things needed in-depth overview, hence the below podcast and a few notes. Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Subject: [win10] Accessible World presentation on Anniversary Update: technical version and clarifications #WinTen1607

 

Hi,

 

For those who’d like to get a deeper (and a bit more technical) overview of Anniversary Update, I have recorded a podcast providing additional information and clarifications from Accessible World presentation from August 1st:

http://nvda-kr.org/files/winten14393B.mp3

 

Things covered include:

·         OneCore (some info derived from an Ars Technica article from Peter Bright).

·         Build numbering changes and why.

·         Why browse mode in Edge broke for NVDA users and happenings since then, why traditional virtual buffer implementations will not work in Edge anymore.

·         The story behind toasts (app notifications).

·         Redesigned User Account Control.

·         Skype Preview app.

·         Windows Subsystem for Linux, specifically how Linux kernel 3.4 system calls are handled.

·         How scan mode in Narrator works.

 

Specifics (quite technical):

 

OneCore is a set of most fundamental routines all devices running Windows 10 share. The goal of this project was to unify routines used within Windows NT kernel (ntoskrnl.exe), such as security, file system support, basic API’s and so on. Each device family then adds layers on top, such as:

 

·         PC’s: OneCore + Universal Windows Platform + desktop app support + desktop interface + Internet Explorer + other components.

·         Mobile: OneCore + UWP + cell phone connectivity stack + smartphone interface and others.

·         Server 2016: OneCore + server components.

·         Xbox: oneCore + UWP + game virtual machine + support for gaming hardware and so on.

·         HoloLens: OneCore + UWP + Windows Holographic and others.

·         IoT: OneCore + UWP + IoT-specific things.

·         Surface Hub: OneCore + UWP + Desktop apps support + multi-touch support and others.

·         Future devices: OneCore + (possibly) UWP + device-specific layers.

Edge: Browse mode broke due to different UIA framework ID’s in use (InternetExplorer versus MicrosoftEdge). According to a MS engineer who was interviewed for the most recent Main Menu podcast, due to security practices and to use modern standards and UIA, Edge does not permit traditional virtual buffer mechanisms anymore, thus screen readers must be modified to handle UIA better and support Edge-specific controls.

 

App notifications: until Version 1511, when toasts (app notifications) appear, they fired (sent) tooltip show event, used by screen readers to catch it and announce toasts. Starting with a more recent Insider build for Anniversary Update, tooltip events are not fired by toasts; instead, a window open UIA event is used, thus screen readers were (or must be) modified to handle this change. Also, when high priority toasts appear, UIA class name changes, thus some screen readers were modified (or must be modified) to handle this case as well.

 

Skype Preview app: when someone is typing, a UIA event is fired. But when someone is not typing, Skype Preview app does not clear typing indicator text, confusing screen reader users (a feedback regarding this UIA implementation issue was sent to Microsoft).

 

Subsystem for Linux: a partnership between Microsoft and Canonical brought this to life. Originally used to research running Android apps on Windows 10 Mobile (Astoria), this changed so some unmodified Ubuntu binaries can function under Anniversary Update with a twist. Specifically, a concept of a minimal process and a picoprocess is used to accomplish this (a minimal process is an empty process when Windows NT kernel sees it; a picoprocess is a representation of a user-mode process from another operating system with a system component serving as a proxy). Because Windows NT kernel (specifically, Windows Native API) does not have certain Linux kernel features, a pico driver called lxss.sys (Linux Subsystem) is used to emulate some system calls if Windows kernel cannot handle it. This is just one of the aspects of this new subsystem (available for developers running 64-bit Anniversary Update and uses an image of Ubuntu 14.04) (all info came from a blog entry on picoprocess found in Microsoft, a part of a larger series on Windows Subsystem for Linux).

 

User Account Control: Until Version 1511, UAC dialog was powered by Win32. This has changed in Anniversary Update: now powered by the technology used to represent UI in universal apps (called XAML (eXtensible Application Markup Language)). Thus screen readers must be modified to read UAC prompts.

 

Narrator’s scan mode: when active, up and down arrows emulate caps lock+left/right arrows.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: [finding styles in word 2016

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Quentin,

 

Thanks for this really comprehensive explanation!

 

The control+alt+number etc. are very useful and do meet the present need.

 

I tried the alt+shift+left arrow and this keeps the same heading 2 but changes the outline level  of heading2. Does this confuse the order of the headings?

 

I am trying to see what the Style Inspector and the style Manager are used for. I can see that the show or “hide until used” are set under the “recommended” tab in the properties of each style.

 

The styles only show up in my “Apply styles” window when they are actually assigned in the document.

 

I’ll do a bit more experimenting and get back when I have a better understanding of how all this works.

 

Thanks for getting me started!

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Hi Cearbhall,

 

Firstly, if you just want to set the current style to Heading 2, you can use the keystroke of control+alt+2.  You can also use control+alt+1 for Heading 1 and control+alt+3 for heading 3.  Shortcut keys for Heading 4 and downward aren't set, however you could if you wanted.  You can however, select text and press alt+shift+right arrow to go down one heading level or alt+shift+left arrow to go up one heading level.

 

Now back to the Apply Styles toolbar you are using.  When you press control+shift+s in Word, it opens the Apply Styles toolbar.  The focus starts in the "Style name" edit (which is actually a combo box - you can either type in here or use the arrows to select existing styles).

 

The currently selected style in the style name edit SHOULD be whatever the style of the current text is, so if you move to text that is in the heading 2 style, that's what should be selected.

 

Generally I've found that works fine, although interestingly, in testing this for you this morning, I found several times that the style name edit is originally blank.  It seems to do this whether NVDA is running or not - perhaps a recent minor update to Office has changed something or something is going weird on this system (it works fine on my other Windows 10 / Office 2016 system) - it didn't do that when I wrote the styles section in Word with NVDA module.

 

As a workaround if it happens to do the same for you, the "Styles" toolbar, which is accessed by control+alt+shift+s (the same as apply styles but with the alt included as well), seems to read fine although you need to press F6 to get to it.  As an added bonus however, you can bring up the context menu for say, heading 2, and select all text in your document of that style (the kind of thing on the one hand you might never use, but if you need it, you'd find really handy).

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.
