Hi all,

 

You are cordially invited to a presentation to be held at Accessible World’s Pat Price Tek Talk room on Windows 10 Anniversary Update. This presentation from yours truly will talk about how Windows 10 is doing, as well as what’s new, changed, removed and fixed in Windows 10 Anniversary Update, such as improved Narrator, what’s new in Cortana, Edge improvements, reorganized start Menu, Action Center and Settings, as well as giving you a tour of technologies such as Edge extensions and Windows Subsystem for Linux.

 

Event details:

·         Date: August 1, 2016

·         Time: 5 PM Pacific, 8 PM Eastern, 00:00 UTC on August 2nd and elsewhere

·         Location: Accessible World Tek Talk Training Room (www.accessibleworld.org)

·         You’ll need TCConference software to participate in this event, and a recording will be made available for those who cannot make it.

 

Hope to see many of you at the event.

Sincerely,

Joseph Lee

The settings are laid out pretty much the same as they were.  They have tweaked how large DPI is handled and also I have a new monitor so it now appears as a column instead of a grid on my screen, but otherwise looks similar enough.

Mostly the whole things looks similar to how it looked before with a few tweaks here and there and some things work better and some have new features.  Cortana for instance has new features which I can't comment too much on as to be honest I never really use it :)

You can apparently get Cortana to show notifications from your Android device, which is nifty and you can reply to text messages and things, although apparently it's not compatible with my phone (it's fairly old - another reason for me to get a new phone!) so I can't test it directly just now.

Hi Quentin,
Thank you so very much. I have been wondering what changes we will have in the new build. I like how the start area sounds being able to use first letter navigation to get through the all apps, and having three columns in the start area. Is the settings app laid out pretty much the same, or does the settings app have new categories, sub categories with in each category and so on?
Thanks a lot, and I am really excited for next week.

Hi Steve,
 
To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start menu is now three columns wide.  The left column has user account / file explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps (first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles.  You can still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.
 
What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.
 
If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due to data loss :)
 
There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.

Quentin.

Re: [NVDA pronouncing "County" as "Company" in address line

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Peter,

 

Clever you! Thanks, that sorted everything out. So, now I understand that when say word excludes the punctuation it refers the substituted letters to the dictionary for pronunciation and hits the “co”  and thus speaks the letters rather than expanding the contraction.

 

Thanks to everyone for help with this!

Quentin,

 

I did not see your response when I was replying to Kevin just now. This explains the three dictionaries very clearly, thanks.

 

I have taken your advice and have included the dot after the Co. However, I found that when I am reading this sentence with control-right arrow (Word by word in other words!) the “Co.” is still being pronounced as: “company” followed by “dot quote”.

 

I’m almost there but would welcome any suggestions about covering the Say word issue. Is there another dictionary operating ?

Re: [NVDA pronouncing "County" as "Company" in address line

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Kevin,

 

That did the trick, thanks!

 

The full contraction includes the Letters capital C, lowercase 0 and the full stop. However, I found that the dictionary would not recognize these three characters as a word. When I removed the full stop, the dictionary trapped it perfectly in standalone mode. This means that any other word with a capital C and lower case o would be trapped incorrectly.  For example:

“Co-operating with everyone”

Comes out as “County-operating with everyone” instead of “co-operating with everyone”.

 

Is there any way to get the full stop included in the contraction as the dictionary pattern?

 

Incidentally, the dictionary entry worked just as well in the default dictionary as in the voice dictionary. What is the difference between these two?

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Re: Touch cursor support

Kevin Huber
 

Hi Pete:

It depends on what application you are in. All review modes are not
available in all applications.
For example, if you are in the desktop, you will only have Screen
Review mode and Object Review mode, but not Document Review Mode,
since there is not document to review, while on the other hand, when I
am typing this message, I have Screen Review mode, Document Review
mode and Object review mode, since I am creating a document.

I hope that explains your dilemma.

It's easier, in my opinion, to demonstrate how object navigation works
than to try to explain it. After it is demonstrated, an explanation
might be helpful but I learned how to use object navigation by
experimentation with very little reliance on explanations.
Do the following:
This discussion uses the desktop keyboard layout. I don't use the
laptop layout and am notfamiliar with it.
Issue the command numpad insert numpad 7. That is, hold numpad insert
and while doing so press 7. Do this until you have moved through the
review options you can move to in that way. Then move back using
numpad insert numpad one. Stop at object navigation.
Now, open some simple program everyone has on their computer. Let's
use Notepad.
Write the word "test."
Now, issue the command numpad insert numpad 4. You will move from the
document window to another part of the program.
Now issue the command numpad insert numpad 6. You are back in the
document window again. You have moved first to a different object,
then back to the document window, the object you started on.
Now issue the command numpad insert numpad 8.
You have moved out of the document window and are now at an object
that says untitled notepad window. Move up again with the same
command. I'm not sure what you will hear depending on your version of
Windows. You may hear desktop window. Try moving to the left and
right by object with numpad 4 and 6. At least on my machine, I hear no
next, no previous.
So move down one level again with numpad insert numpad 2. On my
machine, I can't move to the left but I can move to the right from
where I am. If I move to the right enough times, I get to untitled
notepad window again.
Move down once to get back into the Notepad program. Start moving to
the right, I don't think you can move to the left. If you move enough
times, you will be back in the edit field with the word test you wrote
awhile ago.
The point is that you first moved to the window, then continuing to
move down you moved into the window and then moved right object by
object until you got back into the edit field.
Experiment and look around. You may find that by looking around and
experimenting, things start to make sense as you conceptualize what
you are doing as you move.
Try moving around using the move left and right commands and moving up
and down and then using the move left and right commands. Note that
you can move to a lot of structures. Some you can move into and some
you can't because you are already in them.
If you get lost, you can always return to the program window where you
started by alt tabbing out of and then alt tabbing until you return to
the window.
This demonstration may not explain things technically precisely
accurately in terms of definitions. I'm not sure I know exactly how
to explain everything technically accurately. The point is to
experiment and get a concept of what you are doing by experimentation
and observation.
This may or may not allow you to understand everything. But this kind
of experimentation, along with working with a good tutorial section
that explains object navigation may allow you to understand it.
Also, note carefully that if you leave NVDA set to screen review, you
can't review the screen accurately much of the time if you intend to
move somewhere and then use the standard review commands such as
numpad 8 read current line. You must have NVDA set for object
navigation to have review work reliably. I have said before that most
NVDA users don't and won't understand this and that you should
automatically be returned to object review when you leave the window
you are in. I still feel strongly about this.

Joseph, is there any material somewhere that
gives some discussion or examples of using
object navigation and the review cursor using some "real world" example?

I have not been able to get my arms around this,
and it's probably because I'm trying to use it
"in the wrong place." I strongly suspect that
had I known how to use these features the
step-by-step pizza ordering instructions for the
Pizza Hut website I was trying to create might
have been completed. I had one of those rare
"throw up my hands and walk away" moments
because I could not figure out how to get NVDA
to "play correctly" with the various pop-up
overlays, etc., and I'm almost certain it can.

Even if you could direct me to either an app or
a website that's a good sandbox for this undertaking I'd appreciate it.

Hi Cearbhall:

Try going into the Voice dictionary and changing it using the following method:

1. Press insert-n to open the NVDA menu.
2. Arrow down to Preferrences and press the right arrow key to open
the preferences submenu.
3. Arrow down to Voice Dictionary and press the right arrow to open
that submenu.
4. Arrow down to Speech Dictionary and press the Enter key.
5. Tab to the Add button and press the spacebar or the Enter key to
activate that button.
6. Type the original word, in your case, you would type Co
7. Press the tab key and then type the word that you want to replace
it with, in your case, you would type the word County.
8. Tab to OK and press the Enter key.
9. Make sure that the settings will be maintained by going into the
NVDA menu, arrowing to Save Configuration and press the Enter key.

I hope this helps.

Not sure you are right. I see cty a lot and never know, unless its obvious, if it is county or country.
There a lot of these expanded abbreviations in sapi5 and other synths, and the only way around them is often regular expressions in the dictionary to screen out the times you do not want it to expand the letters, in the middle of words, in email addresses etc.
The current most alloying ones are parts of UK post codes being seen as states in amarica abbreviations, and imperial weights and measures being seen as all sorts of strange things.
I'll leave it to those more expert in such things to give you some pointers as I've just tended to live with it unless I'm trying to make an mp3 out of a text file in which case I alter the document.

You can do this via the speech dictionaries.  To edit the dictionary:

1. Press NVDA+n to open the NVDA menu
2. Press P for preferences
3. Press enter or d for default dictionary, v for voice dictionary or t for temporary dictionary:

    Hi,

     

    I wonder if anyone can advise how I can get NVDA to say “County” when it meets the contraction “Co.” in an address line?

     

    I am using “ETI Eloquence” as my speech engine in NVDA 2016.2 and Windows 10.

     

    This is the common way to present the County in both the UK and Ireland. For example, I live in County Wicklow and this is represented in my address line as “Co. Wicklow”. However, NVDA says “Company Wicklow” every time!

    How can I fix this?

    All advice and thoughts are welcome.

    Hello,

    In the past, I have recommended Sophos Home. It is cloud-based, and works quite well.

    Thanks.

    Re: [NVDA pronouncing "County" as "Company" in address line

    Chris Mullins
     

    Hi

    Activate NVDA menu and go to preferences, speech dictionary menu.  Press enter on  the Voice dictionary and add an entry.  Include the initial capital, the trailing period and check the case sensitive box.  Use the OK buttons to save the data.  The trailing period is important as for example, “John Wainwright & Co Ltd” is where Company would apply.

    Cheers

    Chris

    How to reach cookie warning banners in Windows 10

    Brian Crabtree <pandbcrabtree@...>
     

    Please could someone suggest how to reach and dismiss the banner that comes up on websites, advising me that the site uses cookies.

    There is an x at the end of the banner, but I have tried everything I know, firstly to navigate to the banner and then to reach the x to dismiss it with NVDA and cannot get anywhere near it. I am on Windows 10 and the latest official release of NVDA.

    Is there perhaps a Windows command which helps? Brian Crabtree
