If you go to the options menu which is under the tools tab you get a screen with what I guess is tabs for General, Home, Search, Privacy and security and sync.  These are on the left side of the screen. On the right side of the screen are the various settings for each of the tabs on the left side of the screen.
NVDA reads the right side of the screen but will not allow you to get to the different tabs on the left side of the screen. How do you get to the options on the left side of the screen?
Thanks









Re: Someone knows a program that integrates Facebook accessible?

Nimer Jaber
 

Hello,

While I don't think I really understand your question, Facebook is accessible with NVDA. The best way to use Facebook is to navigate to the site and use it in focus mode, with the keyboard shortcuts that Facebook provides. I do not use Facebook and have not in a few years, but I believe that pressing ? (question mark) should present a list of keyboard shortcuts. If it does not, then google Facebook keyboard shortcuts.

Blind people have typically stuck to using the mobile site of everything. I don't know if this is because of comfort, lack of training or knowledge, laziness and unwillingness to learn something new, or because working with web apps is truly difficult, but web apps have gotten more and more accessible and usable, and are often much more productive than the mobile version of anything. Take Gmail for example. I can navigate to Gmail, traverse the email list with my arrow keys, press enter on a message, press n to move between messages in the thread and have them read out, press r to reply, press ctrl+enter to send, press c to compose a new message, etc etc. On Twitter, I can use keyboard shortcuts to move between tweets, reply to a tweet, retweet, like, etc. Accomplishing these tasks is often much more efficient than had I chosen to use the mobile version. Yes, this takes learning keyboard shortcuts, and yes, it is different than everything you may have been taught, but to characterize these interfaces as not being accessible I think is wrong and does the community a disservice.

Thanks.

Formatting on a Braille Display

Is there a way for NVDA to display formatting in a document such as italic and bold on a connected ,R; Display?

Re: Firefox options

Don H
 

My screen is maximized.
Another finding is I switched from NVDA to Narrator to see if it was any better. Every time with Narrator running if I open the options menu Firefox crashes. Tried it 6 times and it crashes every time.

This is something I seldom think about but that I know can be true. Maximizing the window is something I presume will be the first order of business, but that's not a safe presumption to make.  If that hasn't been tried, it should be.

And, I've already stated that means you have a problem and how to address it.  If you won't address it, no one can help you.  This is not normal behavior, and there are clear and specific steps, generally uninstalling and reinstalling, to take care of those.

If the issue is based in your Firefox profile, which I hope it isn't, then there's a whole other layer that might come next.

The first item in the "control column list" (for lack of a more precise description) is the General Settings.  That's followed by Home, Search, Privacy & Security, then Sync.  Up and down arrowing in that list moves you through the categories.
Once you have the category you want selected in the control column list, you must quadruple Tab to get to the first of the actual settings within that category.  Continuing to tab will step you through the various settings for the category.   Using CTRL+F throws focus directly back to the "Find in options" search box no matter where you are in the settings, then you can triple SHIFT+Tab back to the control column list.
If NVDA's not reading then I'd try either reinstalling NVDA, reinstalling Firefox, or both.

The "this" referred to by Bianka has to be either using CTRL+A to select all then pasting into Wordpad (in her specific case) or turning off NVDA prior to using the standard Windows keyboard shortcuts for selecting text then turning it back on.

It is insanely complicated to keep using the NVDA pass through key and selecting bits of text from a web page.  If you want to preserve formatting it's far, far easier to do a select all, which works even when NVDA is active, then paste the resulting selection into the editing software of your choice that preserves the formatting and actually hacking out what you need to hack out there.   It also allows you to back out any "ooops-es" you might have made when manipulating said text far more easily, too.

Hi ☺
I have the surface go. You can definitely use NVDA with just the touchscreen. However, in my personal experience I find the keyboard works better for me. I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have in regards to NVDA and touchscreens.

Hello,

Reposting this, not sure if it ever went through, I've not heard anything back on it.

I remember a while back I think there was a podcast on NVDA and tablet-interactions with touchscreens only. I'm going to be going on a trip taking a tablet only. It does not have nor do I want to bring an external bluetooth keyboard. I am wondering if anyone knows where that podcast is on tablets. This is a surface pro something, it is running win10.

Thanks.

Copying Formatted Text from a Webpage into Word

kelby carlson
 

All,

I want to copy some text from a webpage into Word while retaining the
format of the text on the webpage. NVDA can retain formatting just
fine when copying from one Word document to another, but when copying
to a webpage it will only paste the plain text no matter what I do. Is
this an NVDA issue or does it have something to do with Word? I do not
have any special ad-ons for the clipboard installed except for Clip
Speak.

Re: NVDA and reading texts in Grade II

David Csercsics
 

Have you had a look at the Braille Extender add-on? It probably does most of what you want. I know you can switch tables with a hotkey, because I do it frequently since UEB is useless for a lot of things, including coding. It's a pity liblouis doesn't properly support nemeth for math books and equations. I'm not sure how best to handle that but play with the braille extender add-on and see if that can do what you'd like. If not then we can figure something else out.
