locked waterfox g3 review

 

Hi.

This is to compliment the issues update on github about waterfox and nvda crashing, updated today.

Just tried the new 3rd generation of waterfox modern.

Firstly, crashes are mostly gone, except that google, dropbox and skype websites want to crash when first loaded, but if you load them again they may be ok.

I wander if this is buffers, timing or something.

It seems that objects are cleared and new ones put in their place in i accessible before nvda has a chance to catch up.

The brouser does load the pages though.

My biggest gripes are:

1.  the fact resilio sync server does not display its output properly.

That is I can read thhe controls but I can't interact with the screen properly like switch windows or tabs.

The main window with all the folders and such will also not display.

There are also sidebars like extentions, search, address and a load of other clutter simular to chrome.

I suspect this is both a waterfox issue and nvda issue and am seriously wandering if this is a uia related thing though no idea how to test it.

What I do like about g3 is the ability to run classic addons like noscript classic and also current addons like extrasounds, etc.

They plan to run chrome and edge extentions which are chromium based, which means I may be able to run some google games and such which would rock.

Its actually something I want.

G3 runs fine 90% of the time.

Its the most stable brouser I have ran of this type and I am happy for its future.

What I may have to do though if this does not get fixed, is use g3, but have a 08 classic portable hanging round.

Its a small price to pay I guess but lets see if it can be fixed.

More over if they can ever fix classic that would be good to though with all the features I don't need classic really.

Hi Bob,

I have dealt with this exact issue. Here is what you do.
1. Launch outlook.
2. Use the nvda key + n to bring up the nvda menu.
3. Navigate to the item called "configuration profiles."
4. In that dialogue, listen for what profile you are on. If it says default, create a new profile. If it says outlook, exit the dialog.
5. Assuming you need to create a new profile, do not give it a name but arrow to the set of radio buttons and choose "current application outlook."
6. Exit the dialogue.
7. Follow the instructions other list members have given for disabling the reporting of table formatting.
8. Ensure you save the profile.
9. Try reading the newsletter.
10. You should find that the excessive reporting of layout messages is gone.

When you swap out of outlook, you will find that the document formatting has returned to the original way it was set because the configuration profile has changed to the default or whatever else you have defined.

I find profiles a really handy feature.

Re: Having Issues with NVDA with Excel and Outlook 2016

 

One can also assign a toggle for Including/Excluding Layout Tables in the Input Gestures Dialog, Document Formatting section.  That's worth a shot, too.  It's really difficult to know what, precisely, is happening here, but I'd lay the issue at the feet of the mail message long before NVDA.

Simple review is on by default. This appears to be the result of either newsletters being formatted incorrectly, using nonlayout tables for layout, or some problem I am not aware of. Whatever the case, turning table notifications off will solve the problem for now, until a progfile can be made if the user wants table notifications on but off when using Outlook.

My gut is telling me that this is the flip side of an issue I've dealt with that is the result of HTML layout tables.

Take a look at the Input Gestures Dialog (NVDA+N,P,N) search on simple, which should return you the "Turn simple review mode on and off" option, and once you have focus on it hit the Add key to add a keyboard shortcut to toggle this feature On/Off of your choosing. Simple review mode is OFF by default, but there are times the you may want to toggle it on to see if it cuts down on this sort of ultra-extraneous verbiage, which is the result of how the HTML used for the message in question is written.

I've almost never worked with profiles. Someone will tell you how if you want to know. For now, open document formatting, NVDA key d. Tab around and uncheck everything involved with tables, then press enter. If you want to have tables reported again after you look at e--mail, issue the command NVDA key control r to restore the saved settings you were using before. If you want to leave table reporting off, just leave things as they are.

Re: Focusing on Offscreen Objects

Dave Grossoehme
 

Good Day:  What happens if you press the control + alt + n to shut down and restart NVDA?  Another thing to try is press the NVDA key + the right arrow on the numpad.  If nothing else try shuting down and restarting NVDA with no add ons loaded.

Re: Windows mail not responding to keyboard

                                                Hi John

Firstly, did you check if the Windows 10 App Essentials add-on is installed?  If not, install it, it will help.

 

Secondly, check you have a link between the Mail app and your email provider, use the Manage Accounts function of the Mail app to check the link is there and the settings associated with it.  It will tell you if the connection is not working and if it is working, you can specify how often messages are retrieved from your email provider.

 

If you are unfamiliar with any of the above, let me know and I will write instructions.

 

Cheers

Chris

Re: regarding the object navigation + other NVDA related questions

Gene
 

It does work when in object review. It depends on the kind of object review you are doing. When in object review, if you use commands such as numpad 8 to read the current line of the object you are on, 7 to move back in the same object, o9 to move forward in the same object, etc. this command will work.

If you are moving from object to object, using such commands as numpad insert 4 move to previous object and numpad insert 6, move to the next object, then such commands won't work because you are not moving in the same object.

I believe the person is asking about moving in the same object. if not, the person can clarify the question.

Hello Everyone,

When I start Windows Mail it says "nothing has arrived yet." when I press NVDA+ctl+F1 it says "Commsapp module is loaded." Then it won't do anything. I know that there are messages waiting.

I'm trying to get Windows App Essenrtials installed.

If it says “commsapps.exe”, then the solution is using Windows 10 App Essentials add-on until the bug fix shows up to everyone (currently the bug fix in question is part of alpha builds).

Yes.  That's the direct line to the add-on's developer.  

While it doesn't hurt to ask about the experiences of others here, the only way that any issue is going to have a chance of being addressed is if the developer is aware of it.  Most don't read the NVDA Group routinely.

Re the slowdown in Excel, in the current alpha builds, we have addressed an issue some users were having with a freeze when navigating.  Feel free to try the latest alpha build and see how you find that: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/

Kind regards

Quentin.

I hope that works for the both of us I'll try and find it. I did see that option but skipped right over it. The next time I have a report to do I'll be trying to see if that fixed the issue. Hopefully now it will make at least NVDA behave better.

I find that disabling "live view" in Excel helps a lot. I think it
varies from version to version, but try going to the file menu &
thence to 'options'.

I'm learning how to use outlook so can't help with that, but your
first issue I have experienced just a few days ago when I was inserting
rows and merging stuff together.

Hello list,
I've been using NVDA for about 10 years now, but it's really only been
in the last few that it has become an every day use in my life, as
I've primarily been using System Access. However, since that screen
reader's future is uncertain, I want to get a few things with NVDA
fixed. I have two fairly major problems with Office 2016 on Windows 10
and the latest version on NVDA:
1. In Excel, whenever I try to modify a spreadsheet, NVDA stops
reading the document that is in focus. For instance, I like to double
check where I inserted a row. So, I will navigate to the row where I
want to insert, hit my applications key, choose insert from the menu,
and choose "entire row" from the dialog that pops up. On clicking OK,
I am returned to the spreadsheet as expected, but unless I alt-tab
away from and back to the spreadsheet or restart NVDA, it will not
read anything in the spreadsheet. Is there any way to fix this so that
NVDA will continue to read things in spreadsheets after taking such
actions? Note, it does not do this if working in a table within the
spreadsheet, just when the spreadsheet isn't a table.
2. The bigger issue is with Outlook, where reading at least some HTML
emails is nearly impossible with NVDA. This is particularly
problematic on emails from Groupon, which I have a lot of on my other
account which I access through Outlook. When I open those emails,
Outlook unexpectedly closes. This is the primary reason I still use
System Access with Outlook, because I've never had this problem with
that screen reader.

Bob,

Are you using the 32bit or 64bit version of Excel?
