Hi!  Just seeing this now. I noticed you said you use Firefox in a message below. I use Firefox as well and I use this add on to get to the notifications https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/mozillaScripts.en.html here is a excerpt from the link in which  it will help you • NVDA+Control+N Reads the last notification and it takes the system focus to it if it is possible.

How does one access alerts on a webpage?  Like the would you like to save this password alert or answer an incoming chat request on a chat help page?

Thanks for any help,

Re: Setting Up New All-In-One Computer with Win10, Acer Brand

 

There is no definitive end user guide for your all in 1.

Firstly you will need to navigate a website the  acer site with your model and serial, to get all the driver and programs you want.

You will then have to download the windows media creation tool, run it, follow the instructions to make a bootable usb stick.

After that you need to incert it, turn off the system, hit f8, turn it on while holding such, select the usb device to boot it.

Use control win enter and make sure scan mode is not set.

then open a command prompt

do a list disk

then select disk 0

then type clean

then y

then select disk 1 if you have another drive and select clean

then exit

go to setup select the drive with the free space usually the smaller one usually the one thats not 1tb in size out of scan mode hit create then next, you can also put a new partition on disk 1 if you want, but we can do it later.

Then follow instructions to install windows.

After windows starts you need to set your network, and update things, then go through all the settings page by page and configure them how you want then install all the drivers how you want via their wizzards and configure them how you want.

After all that the system will work and you can create your secondary partition in disk manager which is in admin tools in control panel and then computer management and then storage, then select the empty drive right click it with the app key and create a drive then you can format it from there or my computer then use it.

You should configure windows update and everything else to your liking and go and configure speech and option features to your liking to as well as privacy and security pages.

After that windows is set up.

I've basically missed a few steps but thats basically a from scratch clean clear and burn of a new system.

Its a darn lot to do and you probably will want someone that does it as a job to set it, I mean there are shortcuts but whatever.

As for office, any office from xp-2010 will need to be installed normally the installs are easy enough to do, set name key formatting, etc the way you want it.

In office 2013 and up updates are controled via alt f d r and space in office itself.

Compatability packs will not work with office versions over 2010 either.

So there is a really rough guide

Now if you can wait and am really patient, I will be going through a servicing contract for 2 business systems as well as a potential eventual entry level business system upgrade for a new client from win7 to 10 but having windows 10 on a new system completely.

I will be able to guide as best as I can the user through a setup of windows itself, and try to do settings and the like.

I will also go through the setup of libre office.

Its not microsoft office but the basic setup for most of this stuff is the same.

Microsoft office is online for most of it from 2013 up so it may be slightly different and configuration to, but most of it will be standard.

For me, its easier for me to just do, and just go and its done.

It will be a challenge for me to speak what I am doing before I do it, and my pitfalls on things to.

However you will have to wait for that guide, I realise you probably can't wait that long.

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

 

Hi,

In case you are wondering when you should upgrade to NVDA 2019.3 add-ons: for users, I advise doing so when 2019.3 is released; for developers amongst us, at your earliest convenience.

Cheers,

Joseph

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: Two problems encountered in Nvda when using Google Docs

Marcos, as I already told you, the first case is a Google Docs accessibility, since NVDA is set to do not echo typed characters...


The second case, NVDA making the noise to announce a word with an error, maybe it is possible...

There are two problems with Nvda when using Google Docs.

When entering a Document, the Synthesizer used in Google Docs does not distinguish between the uppercase and lowercase letters you enter.
To use Google Docs, I turn off speaking typed characters and speaking typed words. And the synthesizer that is used at the time of typing makes no difference between uppercase and lowercase letters typed.

When I type a misspelled word, Nvda does not emit the warning sound indicating that the word was misspelled. But the synthesizer speaks suggestion of spell checking.

These issues should be brought to the attention of the developers.

My only comment with regard to Windows 10 needing to be downloaded is, "Not likely on a brand new computer."   Unless you bought something that's been sitting on the shelf for a very long time I haven't seen a PC ship with other than Windows 10 on it (other than by special order) for about 3 years now, at least.

If the machine did not come with MS-Office preinstalled then you will have to acquire a license key for the edition of Office you want then go to setup.office.com to initiate the download and install process.  It's quite straightforward.

Not that there is anything wrong with bringing up these issues on this group, and there are a couple of developers who are regulars, but if you want to officially bring something to the attention of the developers you need to set up a github account and use the New Issue button on the NVDA Issues Page to log an issue.  That's the way to guarantee that an issue gets looked at.

Of course, searching to see if an issue already exists before creating a new one by going to the Filter box at the top, and entering keywords related to your issue after the pre-populated phrase that's there, "is:issue is:open", should be done first.  If one already exists you may want to add to it, or not, depending on what you find when looking at the issue.
