Re: re-appearance of an issue with Speech Viewer?

 

Hi,

Looks like either a regression or something got corrupted in settings. I think someone wrote an issue on GitHub so developers might be aware of this issue.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Joseph,
I'm using voice Microsoft Zira Desktop - English (United States) with the  Microsoft Speech API version 5 synthesiser.

I've just tried it with one of the other voices in SAPI5, Hazel, and the speech viewer window is also not closing with Alt+F4. Zera is my day-to-day voice and I'm sure Alt+F4 would close the Speech Viewer window before the update to NVDA 2019.3

If you do decide to write such a document, you might want to consider including information about my add-ons TextNav and BrowserNav there - as they are specifically intended for the same purpose: simplify or enhance navigation around web pages.

Re: Itunes Library with NVDA

David Griffith
 

Unfortunately the default view in iTunes is not friendly to screenreaders.

The  advice for screenreader users is generally to

  1. Change the library sort view from Artists to Songs.
  2. Now you can enable column browser which is pretty essential for a smooth iTunes experience. Oddly column browser can only be enable with songs as the sort view. You should find column browser in the view menu with songs set as the sort view. There is also a keystroke to enable column browser which I am afraid I have forgotten for the time being though I could find out. Actually in the latest iTunes I find getting to the menus a little awkward but pressing alt and v gets me into the required view menu so you could try the same.
  3. Once column browser is enable you can return to the view menu and select which elements you want iTunes to sort your music by. Personally I uncheck genre .
  4. Once you have this all set up your music library will be sorted into columns. On my iTunes the first column is artists and I can simply arrow down to hear each artist. Now pressings the tab key  or right arrow will jump you into a column with the all the albums by a particular artist and then pressing tab  or right arrow again from the album column will land you in a list of all the songs on that album. Press enter to play, space to pause, control alt arros left and right to fast forward and  backwards, left and right arrows to move to next and previous tracks.
  5. Press shift tab to navigate back through the columns.
  6. So basically with this setup iTunes becomes not just accessible but easy to play music from.

Hi all,

 

 

It has been a long time since I ventured to open iTunes on my pc. I have

the latest version, recently installed, and I have the NVDA latest as

well. I can tab and find a tree view that is my music library. and I can

arrow down through sections like albums, artists, songs etc. But I can't

find a way to get from my chosen selection, say artists, into the list

of artists, so that I might pick one. I have tried right arrow to no

avail. Tab yields nothing useful. Pressing enter starts a song by the

first artist in the listing of artists. But I can't find a

keyboard-centric way to actually get to that list. Any advice?

Monthly Group Rules Reminder for the NVDA Group (nvda@nvda.groups.io)

nvda@nvda.groups.io Group Moderators <nvda@...>
 

NVDA Group Description:  NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA) is screen reader software.  The central purpose of this group is discussing how to use NVDA, either configuring NVDA's settings or familiarizing oneself with its modes and commands.  Discussions about which programs are accessible using NVDA, NVDA add-ons, NVDA tutorials and documentation, and configuring synthesizers or Braille displays for use with NVDA are also permitted.

What follows is the NVDA Group Monthly Reminder Notice, which is meant to reacquaint members with the NVDA Group Rules.

It is presumed that the majority of members will be using NVDA, and possibly other screen readers, as part of their daily routine.  This being the case, before you post a message you have to consider whether the question you are about to ask is actually about NVDA itself, or about the program you’re using it to access.  Questions of the form, How do I use . . . with NVDA?, are very seldom about NVDA, but are almost always about the program being accessed with NVDA.

The NVDA Group has a Chat Subgroup (see: https://nvda.groups.io/g/chat, Group Email Addresses section) that has as its purpose the asking of virtually any “off-topic” question about anything you can think of, including just socializing.  It should be used for exactly that purpose. The Chat Subgroup has generally had technically focused topics related to using features of the programs that one is using NVDA to access or about other programs that have proven helpful.  Only those who are already members of the NVDA Group can subscribe to the Chat Subgroup.  

Before choosing where to post, please ask yourself the question, “Is what I’m about to ask or offer directly related to controlling or using NVDA, or whether a specific program is accessible with NVDA?”  If that can be answered, “Yes,” then post to the NVDA Group, and if the answer is, “No,” then the topic belongs in the NVDA Chat Subgroup.

In order to make your experience, and those of all other members, as pleasant as they can be, please follow these practices:

1.  Use threaded or conversation view in your e-mail client program or webmail and reading through the entirety of a topic before replying.  It gets you completely up to speed and avoids a lot of repetition.  If you choose not to use threaded/conversation view, please take the time to read through all messages from the group that are in your inbox prior to adding any reply to the group.  It’s the only way you can be sure you’re up to speed on any topic when not using threaded/conversation view.

2.  Reading through all new topics before replying, as topics have a tendency to get split upon occasion and often an answer ends up being in a separate topic.

3. If you have reason to believe your question has likely been asked and answered in the past please search the Group Archive first before asking it again.  Step-by-Step instructions for searching the group archive using the Groups.io search or a web search engine of your choosing: Searching_the_NVDA_Group_Archive.docx.  Please consider using a web search first for questions that have almost certainly been asked frequently and for which myriad answers, often in the form of tutorials, already exist.

4.  Think very carefully about the title you are going to give any topic you post.  The topic is the first (and, sometimes, only) thing a member sees and that may be how they decide if they’re going to look further.   Generic titles, such as “Help Me!,” are not helpful because they give no idea about what.  Compare that to something like, “NVDA not reading Excel cell contents,” or, “NVDA setting for pronouncing numbers,” where the exact issue where help is needed is front and center.   Even something like, “Need help with the following . . .,” lets the reader know that you are going to present a list of issues.

5.  Please avoid, “What is the best . . .?,” topics, because what qualifies as “best” is entirely subjective.   Topics of this sort are also always chat topics.  If you know you have specific needs then asking, “What {insert program type here} has the following features . . .,” is much more descriptive.   If you want to know what programs people like for a specific task, asking, “What’s your favorite . . . and why?,” is far more likely to get you the details you want to have.  Notice that none of the above questions ask about whether a program is accessible with NVDA.  If you’re asking something like, “Which {insert program class here} is accessible with NVDA?,” then it’s a main group topic.

6.  Any topic that is not about using NVDA to accomplish a task, or how to control NVDA, belongs in the chat subgroup, not the main group.  All questions about how to use the specific features of a program that you’re using NVDA to access, but not about NVDA itself, belong in the chat subgroup.

 

Respectful, even if slightly heated, disagreements will occur occasionally and will be tolerated provided what is described next does not occur.  Flaming, name calling, instigating arguments for their own sake that do nothing to advance anyone’s knowledge, pointed rudeness, and similar boorish behavior will not be tolerated.  If at any point one of you happens upon a message anywhere in the NVDA Group sphere, main or chat, that fits the preceding description then please report it to the group owner either via e-mail at, nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io, or, if you read via the web interface at https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/topics, then use the Report this message option that’s a part of the More button at the end of each message.  Please don’t add a protest message the topic.  If we receive a report and agree with it, the issue will be taken care of promptly.

 

If you find the amount of traffic from this Group, or any Groups.io group, overwhelming, then please download and read:

Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (docx)

Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (PDF)

Each of you has the ability to mute topics that don’t interest you, get digests instead of individual messages, or to set up topic preview for yourself via the Following Only and First Messages Also features used in conjunction with each other.  It is up to you to use those to manage your e-mail as you see fit.  It’s almost certain that there will be plenty of topics on the chat subgroup that will not be of the least interest to you as an individual. Setting up topic preview lets you pick and choose what you want to continue to see, and this function can be used on any Groups.io group.

Re: Itunes Library with NVDA

Jim O'Sullivan
 

Hi Mary,
This works for me.
When artists is selected in the library sidebar tree view, I tab 7 times, NVDA says All Artists, then I can arrow down and I will have an alphabetical list of artists in my library.
I can also type the first letter or 2 of an artist name here and iTunes will move to the artist in the list.
I press enter and it will start playing tracks by that artist.
I can also press app key or shift+f10 when on an artists to get a context menu of options.
When tracks by an artist are playing, control+l will bring up a track list that I can move through with up and down arrows.

Subject: [nvda] re-appearance of an issue with Speech Viewer?

 

Hi all, just wondering if anybody else is experienceing problems closing the speech viewer window since updating to 2019.3?

I remember a similar thread back in 2018 (10/19/18   #49366) and I don't know if Alt+F4 (which was suggested in the responses) wasn't working for Rechell Schwartz at that time ... it was for me .., but I am having an Alt+F4 failure with Speech Viewer as of the 2019.3 update.

The only way of closing Speech Viewwer down now in NVDA 2019.3 if I have it open, is to go into the Tools menu and deactivating it there ... which is much fiddlier than simply presing Alt+F4 when I'm already in the Speech Viewer.

I've checked it on both my laptop and tablet installations and both are behaving the same way. Both are running Win10 and NVDA 2019.3

Does anybody know if this is an intentional change?

Thanks,

Giles


Joseph Lee's add-ons: important note on Add-on Updater, Python 2 versions to be removed on March 3rd

 

Hi all,

 

Two important announcements:

 

Add-on Updater: as you should know by now, Add-on Updater is compatible with NVDA 2019.2.1 or later, and I did say that a future release will drop support for 2019.2.1. The time has come to do that: Add-on Updater 20.03, scheduled for March 10, 2020, will absolutely require NVDA 2019.3 or later. I have intentionally delayed enforcing this requirement so you can keep add-ons updated before the cut-off date.

 

Python 2 versions of various add-ons: when you visit community add-ons website (addons.nvda-project.org), some add-ons developed by me include a link to download older releases compatible with old NVDA releases. These links will retire on March 3, 2020. Going forward, all add-ons by me will require NVDA 2019.3 or later.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: an accessible voice recorder?

Gene
 

You press r and then space to record.  Space stops recording.  Just space starts and stops playing.
 
Someone said you hear announcements like Mp3 Direct cut is ready to record.  That would require the add-on.  You hear nothing without the add-on.  But you can easily find status messages if you use your screen-reader's review options.  For NVDA, move to object review.  Use the command shift numpad 7 to move to the top of the screen.  Move down the screen with numpad 9.  When you are recording, you will find an annoumcement that you are recording.  If you leave the object review where it is and do different things, you will hear different announcements by using numpad 8 to read the current object.
 
I haven't used the add-on and I don't know what it adds to announcements or what you hear.

Re: planning on writing a guide on browsing the web efficiently with NVDA

Gene
 

Sinnce I don't know very specifically how you intend to approach the project, I can't comment much on just what you intend to do. 
 
I will say that I think the emphasis, at least for the beginning of any such tutorial should be page navigation.  People need to really have it rubbed in that they are dealing with a document that has certain conventions.  For example, you generally see navigation links on the top of the page, the text after the navigation links, and other navigation links, some of them repetitive.
 
The links list, I veel very strongly, should not be taught until the person has received enough instruction to thoroughly teadch the concept of a document with certain conventions.  And that means teaching the search command, not just as something to be used in the great variety of moving through web pages, but rather as an essential thing in itself.  The search command is one of the most under used and most powerful ways to find things.
 
As to the conventions of web pages. the navigation links are to allow you to efficiently move from one part of the web site to another.  If this concept, a document with conventions, isn't really emphasized, the person learning may never get a proper understanding of how to think about web pages.
I could go on about teaching but I'm not sure how much detail would be appropriate for this list and not the chat list.  A good deal of what you will be teaching is universal in terms of good Windows screen-readers and web navigation.  Commands are very standardized now among widely used Windows screen-readers so the first question is whether this should be for NVDA specifically of for blind users in general.  Since so many blind computer users are poor or mediocre Internet users, if you broaden the description, you may help a lot more people.

Hi everyone.

As the subject says, I am planning to write a guide on how to browse the web more efficiently with NVDA.

As you all know, NVDA has a ton of single navigation commands to navigate to different webpage elements, E.G. Landmarks, headings, block quotes, links, the newly introduced groupings and articles etc. However, there doesn't seem to be much info in laypersons terms about what these elements are, much less how you can use them to  get around the web quicker. There's loads of dev info on w3c, but nothing much for your average screen reader user navigating the web.

I remember a similar thread back in 2018 (10/19/18   #49366) and I don't know if Alt+F4 (which was suggested in the responses) wasn't working for Rechell Schwartz at that time ... it was for me .., but I am having an Alt+F4 failure with Speech Viewer as of the 2019.3 update.

The only way of closing Speech Viewwer down now in NVDA 2019.3 if I have it open, is to go into the Tools menu and deactivating it there ... which is much fiddlier than simply presing Alt+F4 when I'm already in the Speech Viewer.

I've checked it on both my laptop and tablet installations and both are behaving the same way. Both are running Win10 and NVDA 2019.3

Does anybody know if this is an intentional change?

Thanks,

Giles

Do you need to hear NVDA when you are in the program window?  You could simply put it to sleep if you don't.

Thanks, I will have to check the keyboard settings option as I don’t think that passing individual keys through will work.

 

Thanks for the advice.

Hello,

 

Use NVDA-F2 to pass thrugh key presses or play with the setting “Handle keys from other applications “ in the NVDA Keyboard settings.

 

Cheers,

Hi,

When using my Hauppauge t.v. tuner with NVDA running, the NVDA seems to interrupt the key presses on the remote control.

Seems like it needs some sort of pass through mode turning on, does anyone have any idea on how I can work around this please?
