Re: New NVDA sounds

Ralf Kefferpuetz
 

They cam in a 2018 release of NVDA, but only for some weeks, not sure if it was just a beta version or an official release. As far as I can remember they were dropped because many blind users come with a hearing disease as well, so they were dropped coz they are a lot softer than the used ones.

Do you know how these sounds were made or where do they come from? For my phonetic punctuation add-on I'm looking for more of these short and distinctive sounds to replace punctuation with.

Re: Alt Keys In Edge Not Working For Menu Access

 

Ron,

            After you've checked the Full Screen bit, though I still suggest doing a Repair Install, you do have the option of just uninstalling and reinstalling the Edge browser.  When you do it this way you will likely lose anything you do not have synced to the cloud by being logged in to Edge when using it, which means everything if you've been browsing as a guest since the beginning.

You must have opened a PowerShell session elevated with admin privileges first.
 
To remove the Edge Browser app from all current accounts on the PC, enter the following command:
 
Get-appxpackage -allusers Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Remove-AppxPackage -AllUsers
 
To reinstall the Edge Browser app for all current accounts on the PC, enter the following command:
 
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml” -Verbose}

Hi Gene,

I don't know how much  clearer I can make it. Apparently, I may be the only one having this issue.  As stated in a previous message.  I launch Edge.  I press alt by itself.  I Press alt + F.  I press alt + S.  Nothing happens.  I used to get some new page of settings load with either just the alt Key or the alt + F key.  Now nothing happens.

On 4/15/2020 6:56 PM, Gene wrote:

I’m not sure what the problem is that is being described, but this is evidently a change where what used to work in Edge no longer does. 

 

In Chrome, just pressing alt doesn’t open the menu.  If you hold alt and type f, the menu opens.  But I don’t think this is the problem being discussed, though I’m not sure what is being described that used to work.

Alt key alone doesn't work in a lot of modern probgrammes including, I think, chrome...modern programmes do not really have a "menu bar" as such so the alt key by itself does nothing, rather than take you there as it does in old windows programmes  that have the traditional bar at the top of the window.

Have you tried, for instance, Alt+plus a letter? The same thing happens with me in latest Edge, where the alt key alone doesn’t work. Hope this helps some.

Re: Interesting question regarding my system tray

When this happens one does nothing and the other one works.  If you try to open the one that does nothing, it disappears. 
 
I have never seen it happen unless a crash and restart has occurred or unless  a crash has occurred and you need to restart it.

I can't explain it, but it sometimes happens for me, too, and no crashes/restarts are involved.  Since it seems to have zero impact on the functioning of NVDA I chalk it up to a quirk.

One of these days I need to check to see if both of those system tray icons would be responsive for the same running instance of NVDA.  Never bothered to check.

Re: Alt Keys In Edge Not Working For Menu Access

 

The results from SFC and DISM both are presented as the last thing they put out, generally.  From your description both probably, and I say probably as I can't know without knowing what they reported at their conclusions, went OK.

My next step would be: Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

By the way, what is your Version and Build of Windows 10?  (Winver command)

Ok, That is Strange, I have used the Version 1.7.7 for a long time and didn’t test the new versions deep enugth.
I will look into it, maybe a quick fix with an addon is possible. If not, I will contact the developer.

I just tried the latest HXD, which I downloaded yesterday, and I am facing a really weird problem.
Not all of the data are visible to screen readers like NVDA and JFW, only bits of it.  For some reason, both JAWS and NVDA think that there are spaces where the hex characters should be.
This didn't happen in the older version of HXD, version 1.7.7.0, it could read every bit of data you arrowed over.
Let's say you've just loaded up a file to edit, and you've got a line of code that reads: AB DD 1B 2D 27 9A.
Both NVDA and jaws have trouble reading the data. 
When using your review cursor, or arrows, you'll see something like:
    DD    2D    9A.
I wonder if there is any way to fix this?

Hi

I am using UltraEdit version 10.10B. I believe there are newer updates, but I have not updated it yet. I have used it without any issues with Window-Eyes until Window-Eyes died. Since then I am using it with NVDA. I don't know how well it works with the Shark, but with Window-Eyes and NVDA there have not been any accessibility issues at all.

Kind regards

Are used to use ultra edit a few years ago And stop you that because I found the interface not as friendly for JAWS for Windows.  If this has changed I will be definitely looking at it again.

UltraEdit has a very good hex editing feature and many other powerful editing functions. This is a real programmer's or techie's editor. But it is not free. I think it costs around $60. I have it and do things with it that I have not been able to do in other editors I have worked with. Notepad++ comes closest, but it doesn't offer hex editing.
