Just so people know this, even though NVDA+Down Arrow on the Chrome About page reads only "About Blank" there is other text, including the Version, that NVDA can and does read if you have mouse tracking on (which it is by default) and you glide your mouse pointer about the screen.

I have no idea why NVDA Find cannot find the word Version while a standard CTRL+F find in Chrome itself does.  I've tied playing with the commands to Follow System Caret and Move mouse to current navigator object to see if I could get NVDA to read that way, but I haven't succeeded.

Even if you don't typically use a mouse, if you've got one and are really certain that there must be something on a page you can get a lot of information by doing a slow, orderly "glide over" of the page with the mouse.  Depending on the layout of the page left-to-right working from top to bottom may work best.  For others top-to-bottom working from left to right will work best.  The layout of the Chrome About screen is pretty much a single column, not far from the left, so top to bottom, left to right works reasonably well.  You can always try a "quick and dirty" scan with the mouse until you hear something, anything, announced then getting organized about moving about.

Mouse tracking is one of the NVDA features I really like best because it gives another method to get to information when "the usuals" get cranky.

Orbit Research and the Transforming Braille Group Introduce the World's
Most Affordable Refreshable Braille Display
Thursday 24th March 2016:
Revolutionary technology from Orbit Research enables TBGï¿¿s objective
of achieving affordable braille for all

WILMINGTON, DE -- March 23, 2016 -- An affordable braille display has
long been the dream of blind people and educators across the world. The
Orbit Reader 20, announced today by Orbit Research and the Transforming
Braille Group finally makes this a reality. It is the worldï¿¿s most
affordable, full-feature Refreshable Braille Display, priced at a
fraction of the cost of similar devices. Based on revolutionary braille
technology from Orbit Research, the Orbit Reader 20 provides
signage-quality braille in a compact hand-held device with 20 eight-dot
braille cells.

The Orbit Reader 20 is a unique 3-in-1 device and serves as a
self-contained book reader, a note taker and as a braille display by
connecting to a computer or smartphone via USB or Bluetooth. As a
braille display, the device works with all platforms including Windows,
Mac OS, iOS and Android, to provide access to all the features of these
platforms using popular screen reader programs. It enables access to all
applications, such as email, web-browsing, text messaging, creating and
editing documents, etc. Though feature-rich, the device is extremely
simple to use and allows switching between the different functions
seamlessly.

In addition to the braille cells, the Orbit Reader 20 also includes a
high-quality, 8-key keyboard, a cursor pad and rocker keys for
navigation and panning, and an SD-card slot for loading books and files
for reading and editing in a standalone mode. It is fluid and dust
resistant and its construction is optimized for durability in extreme
environmental conditions.

"The Orbit Reader 20 represents the next step in our continuing mission
to bring affordable products to the blind and visually impaired
community. It is tremendously exciting and humbling to be able to bring
to the market a product that has the potential to catalyze literacy for
millions of blind people across the world" said Dr. Gina Spagnoli, Orbit
Researchï¿¿s Founder.

TBG President, Kevin Carey said: "The Orbit Reader 20 and its disruptive
braille technology alters the refreshable braille landscape forever. It
achieves TBG's objective of providing an affordable solution for
accessing e-books and other digital content via braille."

The Orbit Reader 20 is available for pre-order now and will ship in late
2016.

Orbit Research develops and manufactures innovative and affordable
products that enable an independent lifestyle for people who are blind
or visually impaired. Founded with the mission to fulfill the urgent

Hi,
You need to have the OCR add on for NVDA installed. You need to OCR the about page and then I read that I have version 49 and it is up to date. That add on is easy to find and install. Have a great one.

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.
rite?
I think if we could all work on a consistent description of what
exactly the problem is it would be easier for the dev people to nail
it down.

Actually, "that particular area" is supposed to be in the

That's the option. But it is pretty cumbersome to activate
and
deactivate
this option anytime you came across such a site.
In Cobra you simply press letter s to freeze the site, and
simply
press
letter s again to set it free again.
And of course it is no solution to keep the metarefresh
option
deactivated,
because if so some sites don't work properly; i. e. you can't
log
in some
site, can't select list items in a list etc.

So a simple feature like in Cobra would be pretty helpful
when
you came
across such a site.

Yours sincerely

How to better use Mp3Gain with NVDA?

Gerardo Corripio
 

Hi listers
Any alternatives or tips you guys have found, to be able to, especially see the results of the volume levels with the MP3Gain program? Mp3Gain for those who might not know, is to lower/raise the volume of mP3 files, and which I use a lot! thus if maybe someone out there could develop an AddOn to better be able to use Mp3Gain, especially for reading the volume results, to determine afterwards if one lowers or raises the file's volume, would be great!

Thank you, I will have a look at the audio tutorial

Hi

I just looked I don't see a written one or can not find one. I thought I had written one and uploaded it a while back.

The audio one should get you up and running though. Tonight I wrote up how to do or how to make a configuration profile with NVDA. It is more on how to do it and is application triggered when you go into that application. For example microsoft word. It also covers deleting out that profile and is on what I use all of the time.

It needs tidying up but hopefully is basic enough to follow to make a configuration profile.
Just let me know if you are interested and I can send to you.
if i ca not find any reference to one on my website in a written format once tidied up it will be uploaded to my website.
It does not cover the say all part to trigger it or manual part.

Hi

I do have a audio tutorial on my nvda audio tutorials page called How to create different configuration profiles using NVDA

I only covered using a application to trigger different profiles in NVDA

Joseph done one that covered more like say all and there was one other, that I forget, but the one I did would be more well used.
The link to this page is http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html
It covers setting up 4 profiles. I can not remember if there is a written one also I would have to check.

Does anyone know how to save application settings in NVDA. I find the manual a bit confusing when it comes to this...I believe a profile needs to be created and I would like that it be triggered by a specific application but when do I choose the settings & save?


Thanks

Thanks for that. Now! have you any idea as to why the Adobe flash plugin crashes on the BBC website. The plugin is up-to-date and doesn’t crash on any other radio station site that I listen to which uses flash.

That could be the same feature in Firefox that causes files to play if they are podcasts instead of offering you the download option but I'm not sure.  This may not help but in Firefox, if you right click the link, there is an item that says copy link location.  It will place the link in the clipboard.  Other browsers may have the same item though the wording may be different. 
If it is a direct link to the actual stream, you can try using it in Winamp.  Do you know the command in Winamp for open URL. It's shift l.

I know the site in question is using flash, but what I am refering to is where there is a link to an mp3 stream, rather than a download, it plays in the firefox player. I can’t recall in which version of firefox this changed, but everything that was not flash used to play in winamp which is my player of choice.

I'm not sure what you mean.  This is a Flash stream.  It isn't a Firefox player.  You aren't supposed to be able to select a player such as Winamp or some other stand alone player.  The Flash Player is intended by the site to be used.  Flash content is actually originally some other format and if you can find the original link, you may then be able to play it in another player such as Winamp because the original source is not Flash.  But I don't know how many sites you might find such a link for nor what the procedure is to find the original source link..

I went to the link in the original e-mail and using firefox 45.1 it seems to be ok. I wish someone could tell me how I can get audio files to play in my player of choice rather than the firefox player.

Chrome won't load the page.  The following message results when I press the details button.  I may try testing the site again with a very recent version of Firefox.
The client and server don't support a common SSL protocol version or cipher suite. This is likely to be caused when the server needs RC4, which is no longer considered secure.

The older version of Firefox I used was using Flash.  I'm not sure what the almost current version of Firefox would have used.  I may try the site with Chrome as well but I haven't yet.

A question for you. Were you using flash on that page, or their native html5 player? I"m not sure if there is a way, other than uninstalling flash, to get at the html5 player.

I tested the page in a recent version of firefox and for some reason, on the one test I did, the page didn't load properly.  When I tested it in a much older version of Firefox, the page loaded, a musicc stream played automatically, and I was able to read the stream without loosing my place.  I don't know if anything refreshed on the page.  But I read for perhaps a minute or one and one half minutes without problems.  The question is, why do people report different results.  The answer might be helpful in working on the problem.  Whatever the case, a feature for freezing the page, as has been suggested, might be useful.  Very few list members have commented on their experiences with specific pages that have been sent to the list by members.  It might be useful to have many responses from people testing these pages.
