What experimental Braille table is that? In what Snapshot it is included?

Hi,




Yes, NVDA freezes, and during the last two times this happened, Word froze
as well. Other things worked but my mother had to navigate the computer
because I could hear nothing. This is, however, not the only time this has
happened. I've had to deal with this frequently over the last couple of
months, and sometimes it was something as simple as activating the snapshot
and changing the Braille Output table from Unified English to the English
Unified Experimental table that would trigger this. I used to use the
Braille Display to read my Bible every day when I first got on the computer.
I have had to forego that practice because setting up the snapshot just
after startup almost always necessitated a restart of my computer.





How can I activate Narrator without having speech to begin with? If there's
a key command, I'd love to know it.

Does the program you are working in freeze along with NVDA? Are other
programs still running? Why not run narrator and shut down NVDA using task
manager and see if that allows things to return to normal. If you want to
use the Braille display before a solution is found, we need to try to
determine how to deal with the problem so you can continue to do what you
were doing without losing material.

It just happened again, again while I was writing. My mother came to
help me again and tried to save my work. Word wouldn't respond. She
tried to exit NVDA mannually, but it wouldn't allow her to do that. She
scanned NVDA with Microsoft Security Essentials but nothing came up. I'm
now using the computer without my Braille Display. I don't understand
why it's doing this to me, but I can't think of any other culprit. It's
brand new. We bought it in February and I've barely used it, partly
because of this issue and partly because of the MUD I've been playing.
But I've had it plugged into my computer via USB almost constantly since
I got it and installed the driver. The computer usually starts up with
it plugged in.


Please, someone, help! I want to solve this problem as soon as possible!
I've had about enough of this and I don't want to sacrifice my Braille

I'm not sure from your message what is occurring.  You say that NVDA is freezing but you also appear to state that Microsoft Word froze as well.  Does the program you are working in freeze along with NVDA?  Are other programs still running?  Why not run narrator and shut down NVDA using task manager and see if that allows things to return to normal.  If you want to use the Braille display before a solution is found, we need to try to determine how to deal with the problem so you can continue to do what you were doing without losing material.

brand new. We bought it in February and I've barely used it, partly
because of this issue and partly because of the MUD I've been playing.
But I've had it plugged into my computer via USB almost constantly since
I got it and installed the driver. The computer usually starts up with
it plugged in.


Please, someone, help! I want to solve this problem as soon as possible!
I've had about enough of this and I don't want to sacrifice my Braille
Display just because this is happening!

Since I got my Braille Display in February, NVDA has frozen with

restart the screen reader with alt+ctrl+n. With this situation, I can't.
NVDA completely stops working. It says nothing. The Braille display's
display remains frozen on whatever was last spoken. I can't restart
NVDA, and sometimes can't even shut down the computer without sighted
help. That's the only way to get things working again-shut down and
restart the computer. I used to only experience this soon after startup,
especially when I tried to activate the snapshot with the experimental
UEB table in it, but now I'm having it happen after the computer's been
going for a while, and it happens on both the normal installation and
the brltbl snapshot. Just now, I had it happen while I was writing in a
document. I was typing merrily away when NVDA stopped reporting letters
and the Braille Display, when I checked it, was only displaying the
first two words I'd typed on that line.


This is getting seriously annoying both for me and my mother, who is my
carer. I don't know what's causing this problem but I have a horrible
feeling it's to do with my Focus 40 Blue, as it didn't happen before I
got it. Can anyone shed some light on this? I want it to stop so my
writing and other activities don't keep getting interrupted.




Re: NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is

It just happened again, again while I was writing. My mother came to
help me again and tried to save my work. Word wouldn't respond. She
tried to exit NVDA mannually, but it wouldn't allow her to do that. She
scanned NVDA with Microsoft Security Essentials but nothing came up. I'm
now using the computer without my Braille Display. I don't understand
why it's doing this to me, but I can't think of any other culprit. It's

Re: Accessible online survey creation tool

 

I have no idea how accessible it is, but you could also take a look at the Survey Monkey website.  They have a free version and a pro version.  I've received a lot of surveys over the years that have been created using Survey Monkey.  I would be curious to know whether the tool is accessible as far as doing the creation of a survey.  The surveys themselves are a series of webpages that use things like radio buttons, dropdown lists, text boxes, etc., for actual data entry by the survey taker.

Yes, Gene, it does not always happen, but it is often enough to
warrant questioning.
I use Firefox BTW.

Hi Bhavya, unfortunately now I can't to try this and I?ve not a ready form.
After press send button you should find some icons on top of page to get a link, send by mail, sharing on social network etc...
If you don't move your form on trash from menu setting, you will not lose your survey. Google saves automatically your last edits.
Cheers.

Hi Chris and others,
I have created a good survey form using Google Forms, previewed it and
ensured it is the way it needs to be.
Now, I am confused about a trivial yet the most important question one
must ask - how can I save this and get it online for me to share its
link for people to fill and submit?
I have pressed the Send button, and now am trying to figure out a safe

Dear all,
I require to create an online survey about a certain potential
initiative and the amount of interest in it people may have, which may
include several question types - country combo box/dropdown, open
ended question edit box, radio button and check box, and an
introductory paragraph.
For this, I seek your advice and recommendations of a free online
survey creation service that could fulfill my purpose.
I do not need very advanced functionality, simply basic survey
creation, sharing and results analysis features would suffice.
I would really appreciate any assistance any of you may be willing to
give!
Thanks.

I have used the preview version of Google Forms, but this last version sound more accessible with NVDA.
To move down or up an item go with arrows in one item you want move, for example move a question.
By NVDA's browser-mode put the cursor on the title of question.
Then press ctrl+shift+k to move up, or ctrl+shift+j to move down.
Automatically NVDA goes in focus-mode in the field of the title of the question your have moved.
Press NVDA+Space to review the position and check if the question has been moved.
These are some useful shortcuts:
Insert question: Ctrl + Shift + Enter (or holding Ctrl, press i then i)
Insert title and description: holding Ctrl, press i then h
Insert image: holding Ctrl, press i then p
Insert video: holding Ctrl, press i then v
Insert section: holding Ctrl, press i then b
Move item up: Ctrl + Shift + k
Move item down: Ctrl + Shift + j
Delete item: Alt + Shift + d
Duplicate item: Ctrl + Shift + d

Navigation
Move cursor up: Ctrl + k
Move cursor down: Ctrl + j
Show list of keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl + /

Print: Ctrl + p
Find: Ctrl + f
Preview: Ctrl + Shift + p
Settings menu: Ctrl + e
Send menu: Ctrl + Enter

Editing
Undo: Ctrl + z
Redo: Ctrl + y or Ctrl + Shift + z
Move to next field: Tab
Move to previous field: Shift + Tab

Align left: Ctrl + Shift + L
Align center: Ctrl + Shift + e
Align right: Ctrl + Shift + r

Hi Chris,
Actually, I am making good progress on making a survey form using
Google Forms. One question that I have for now is moving and changing
the order of the questions, i.e. moving them up and down. Ctrl + Shift
+ K/J is something I don't know when to press as there is not specific
focusable option for an item or option.
Please help me in that respect, otherwise I will try to finish the
survey form for now.
Thanks.

Hi Chris,
I am getting very confused with Google Forms. I cannot find links and
buttons to click and follow instructions from, and the keystrokes are
working in a weird way, perhaps something that I am unable to keep up
with or understand.
I would like to sincerely request you, or others, to please give me a
quick walkthrough of Google Forms or other accessible survey creation
services via any preferred medium. My contact details are all in my
signature.
I would truly appreciate any assistance.
Thanks.
