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

Hello,

Alt-f4 never worked for me. I assigned a hotkey in the input gestures (NVDA-0) to open or close the speech viewer.

 

Cheers, 

Ralf

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: a question regarding NVDA portable

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


From the user guide the restrictions below.


3.1. Portable and Temporary Copy Restrictions
Apart from the inability to automatically start during and/or after log-on, the portable and temporary copies of NVDA also have the following restrictions:
• The inability to interact with applications running with administrative privileges, unless of course NVDA itself has been run also with these privileges (not recommended).
• The inability to read User Account Control (UAC) screens when trying to start an application with administrative privileges.
• Windows 8 and later: the inability to support input from a touchscreen.
• Windows 8 and later: the inability to provide features such as browse mode and speaking of typed characters in Windows Store apps.
• Windows 8 and later: audio ducking is not supported.

Itunes Library with NVDA

Mary Otten
 

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?

Re: nvda command line switches

Yes, NVDA does accept command line options. These are listed in section 16.1 of the user guide.

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.

Hi all
1. With MP3 Direct Cut, press r at the main window to start recording.
You may need the lame mp3 encoder for this to work. Exactly I don't
remember.
2. I'm sorry for my last e-mail because of incorrect info. Sound
recorder is a program included in windows xp. From Windows 7 or higher,
the program has been renamed to voice recorder, and you can find it by
typing voice at the search box of start menu.

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 would post it on the community wiki as frankly I'm only one woman and don't know everything.  So it'd be a community effort much like the JAWS to NVDA guide, which I did most of the initial work on.

What do you all think of such a project? Would you find it useful?

Also, if a similar thing already exists, I don't want to reinvent the wheel.

All the best,

Kara
