Hi, everyone,



Just want to admit that I was wrong about the blind mice megamall site not
being accessible. I just became a member. To the person who said that the
site is not accessible, you have to look at the form in browse mode. Then
you can fill it out. I looked at the site in both firefox and internet
explorer. This is a great lesson to learn for all of us--not to jump to
conclusions.

Re: Alternative like jaws curser for NVDA,

 

Once the Elements List has been triggered via NVDA-Key+F7, you can display one of five different element types at any given moment in time:
  1. Links (ALT+K, or activate the Links radio button).
  2. Headings (ALT+H or . . .)
  3. Form Fields (ALT+F or . . .)
  4. Buttons (ALT+B or . . .)
  5. Landmarks (ALT+D or . . .)

The NVDA User Guide can be brought up in your default web browser via NVDA-Key+N,H,U and the Commands Quick Reference via NVDA-Key+N,H,Q

Subject: [nvda] Important release note: NVDA 2019.3 add-ons from Joseph Lee to hit the air in waves, starting January 1, 2020

 

Hi all,

 

Before I close my “shop” i.e. add-on development for 2019 (apart from compatibility list), one last announcement on add-on releases in 2020 and beyond:

 

Starting on January 1, 2020 (or a few hours before), NVDA 2019.3 optimized add-ons from me will be released to stable channel. This will be done in waves, starting and ending with Add-on Updater.

 

Release waves:

 

  1. A few hours prior to new year: Add-on Updater and Virtual Review (Virtual Review is leaving my nest i.e. handing it over to the community then).
  2. January 1, 2020: Resource Monitor, StationPlaylist, Windows 10 App Essentials.
  3. January 3, 2020: Easy Table Navigator, Golden Cursor, ObjPad, SystrayList (all of these are leaving my nest then).
  4. January 6, 2020: Control Usage Assistant, Enhanced Touch Gestures, GoldWave, Object Location Tones
  5. Seven days after NVDA 2019.3 stable version is released: Add-on updater requiring NVDA 2019.3

 

For some add-ons, download links for old releases will be made available until March 1, 2020 (no extensions after that). For add-ons leaving my nest, the dates listed above will be the day when last versions from me will be released (and for developers, no more commits from me regarding code for these add-ons after that; I’ll provide repository links when the final releases happen).

 

A few important notes:

 

  1. If you are using Add-on Updater: after installing the next version (mandatory), you’ll see a pop-up message telling you that some add-ons may not be compatible with upcoming NVDA 2019.3. You’ll be advised to contact add-on authors (you can view contact info for authors by opening Add-ons Manager and looking at “author” column for concerned add-ons). A button will be shown that’ll open a page in community add-ons site listing latest compatibility list.
  2. If you are using Add-on Updater to check for add-on updates: once 2019.3 add-ons come out and you are using 2019.2.1 or earlier, Add-on Updater will refuse to install new releases. This is actually a good thing in that concerned add-ons are ready for 2019.3 or later. The converse is not true: you have 2019.3 yet the updated add-on does not advertise support for 2019.3, that’s a bad thing and you SHOULD contact authors about it (and Add-on Updater will still refuse to install the updates concerned). This applies to almost all add-ons, including Add-on Updater itself (exceptions include Enhanced Aria, Focus Highlight, and Screen Curtain, all of which have their add-on features included in NVDA 2019.3).
  3. After installing 2019.3 optimized add-ons, you cannot go back. This is especially the case for add-ons that are now powered by Python 3 such as StationPlaylist.
  4. Various add-on entries on community add-ons website will start showing “NVDA 2019.3 and beyond” message in compatibility statement after Christmas (they concern my add-ons). Some of them will show changelogs for upcoming releases, while others will add a new “download older releases” (or similarly named) link around the same time.
  5. At least for my add-ons, on March 1, 2020, Python 2 versions of my add-ons (or ones advertising support for older NVDA releases except Screen Curtain) will be removed from community add-ons website. This should give some of you time to archive old add-on installers. In case of Screen Curtain, it is now a legacy add-on.
  6. For Windows 10 App Essentials users: version 20.01.x is the last release to support Version 1809 (October 2018 Update).

 

Thanks. Early Merry Christmas and a happy New Year (or as many would say, “happy holidays”).

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: Add-on for marked-up texts

 

Cordelia,

          Luke has said the functionality of the add-on referred to has been absorbed into NVDA itself.  While I certainly have never used it, someone must have and probably still is actively using it.

          This isn't to argue, but if the functionality is now included in NVDA itself then the discussion should shift to how it's used, as an add-on would no longer be relevant.

           Someone else who's actually doing what you're seeking to do will have to jump in at this point.

Re: Add-on for marked-up texts

Cordelia Scharpf
 

Thank you all for answering  my question and discussing the pros and cons of (not) keeping old(er) versions of such add-ons. I had hoped to learn whether such an add-on was available  for NVDA (2019.2.1 or later) to facilitate working as a writer-cum-copyeditor.

 

The question now is whether such an add-on would be useful for many of us or just for a very select few. What workaround might we have, or does anybody know of a good way working with NVDA to accomplish the tasks at hand?

 

Besst,

Cordelia

It sounds to me as though the Navigation Pane may have somehow been turned off.

If you hit ALT+V,N then activate the check control for Navigation Pane it should return.  If it gets unchecked then it disappears.

I am not completely sure what the problem is but you could try

  1. Press windows key and then type Control Panel
  2. When control panel comes up press F to jump to file Explorer options.
  3.  

N here make sure that File Explorer is set to open to “This PC” in the first combo box.

NVDA-KEY+F7 does this just as JAWS does. The only difference is, NVDA will say elements list when you press that key combination.

Well, the licence will be tied to your bios.

 

You will probably want to set the system up and refresh it/reformat

immediately because of the amount of bloat on it.

 

You can use fresh start for this but I forget where it is.

 

If you got office there is a key, most installs are the same and yeah

they work.

 

Narator has come a long way since 2016.

 

You can start and stop it and you can run nvda with it to if you want

you don't need to and you can't uninstall it.

 

I sometimes run nvda and narator together because narator scan can be

usefull.

 

You can set up windows with narator and to some extent use narator, nvda

will work with a lot more apps but if you read your article from 2016

well  its old.

 

As for office it depends on the version as I said.

 

Basically you will need to adjust background apps to not load everything

bar windows security, and you will also want to adjust your privacy and

security settings to what you want and a few other things.

 

If you are not wanting to reformat just yet, removing unwanted stuff is

fine.

 

The issue I have found with all the systems that have come preconfigured

mainly my hp boxes is that windows came with several recovery

partitions, including but not limited to, recovery bios and diagnostic

partitions and important recovery and oem partitions.

 

The point being that you may reach a point where windows will not be

able to install feature updates due to the fact there is no more space

to create a recovery partition and set extra stuff up.

 

There is a probable way round that but the way I have done it is to

clear out all the drives, by cleaning all partitions except with thehard

drive if its a secondary where I can clear the secondary partition off

it and then well expand the volume.

 

With windows and your drivers downloadable from the net you won't need

to have the spaciffic configurations needed anyway.

 

If you are going the new user rout, you probably will have a lot of

trials like mcafee  and other stuff about.

 

The easiest way is to download all the drivers or get someone to do it,

and then clear off the entire computer then recreate all partitions,

then and only then install windows or well you can do that yourself.

 

After doing this to all systems I have had no issue with them not

wanting to install updates for features at all.

 

I have always tried to custom build things myself but saying that I have

never had shop brought shop branded things so maybe I can control things.
