Hi guys

 

Just to let you know the web site has come back on line it seemed it was a very series crash on there end. it may go up and down while they repopulate all the web sites on that server.

 

Hopefully nothing like this happens again for a very long long  ..... time again.

 

It is dated the 23rd of September so is the last update that was drop boxed to the list.

Hi

 

The website has been zipped you will need a program to unzip it. You can also do it with windows explorer but may be better to make a folder then put the files into it that is easy to find. Then it is a matter of just going to the index file with in the folder and pressing the enter key on it and use it like normal. As long as people have internet access they should be able to access audio files  etc.

 

There may be another tutorial been added on later this week so will update the link to the drop box account then.

 

I will let people know then.

 

The drop box link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/fh0ke305t6afduw/Accessibility%20Central%20Website.zip?dl=0

Hi guys

 

As you probably have noticed Accessibilitycentral.net has not be accessible and the following message comes up when you try to access one of the pages Website is temporarily down due to file system failure. Recovery is in progress, please check back later. Sorry for inconveniences

.

 

The people we host with were alerted when i first noticed it and it has to be fixed on there end. I do not know when it will be back up but hopefully it is ASAP.

 

I guess this is maybe what you get some times when you host with a free provider? with no adds and only have to pay for the domain name.

 

It sounds pretty serious like the server hard drive took a dive?

 

If any one wants to access the material on it at present I can zip it up and drop box it until it comes back on line.

This will only be the website files not the audio files as every one has access to the internet mostly.

 

You will then need to unzip it and put it into a folder with the files. Then it is a matter of just accessing the index file for the website.

 

I might again even look at other options for hosting.

 

Let us know and can drop box to the list.

And alt+v for view menue respectively.

For details, go to those menues and discover how much those menues are accessible.

I’m very sorry to let you know that most of us do not like to spend sometimes to explore new things and want to stick with old technology.

Re: Beeping sound when scrolling in page

Hi, Gene and Quentin

What I did was reinstall nvda 2019.2.1 without addons.
And now the beeping sounds was gone on the background while scrolling on page.

In the browse mode dialog which you can open with NVDA key control b, if you want verbal notifications when you switch between modes, change the checkbox to unchecked with the space bar for audio notification of browse and focus mode, or very similar wording.
 
If you don't want automatic switching between modes as you move down a page, uncheck the checkboxes for Automatic focus mode for caret movement and Automatic focus mode for focus changes.

Hi, not sure if you have same experience when
scrolling in page or site of hearing beep sound
and I just thought it was for only in Firefox also with the Chrome. I am
currently using nvda 2019.2.1
As for troubleshooting,I tried to disable all the addons
but it gets the same results. Thanks.

Re: Beeping sound when scrolling in page

Quentin Christensen
 

Are you using 2019.2.1 or are you using 2019.3 beta 1?  Alpha and Beta versions beep whenever an error is written to the log.  In many cases NVDA can try something else to work around the issue and the end-user never notices a problem, however the beep is noticeable in the beta version.

If that's what it is, the beep will be gone when the RC (release candidate) comes out.  If you are definitely using 2019.2.1, and you've disabled add-ons, you might try pressing NVDA+N, then T for NVDA's tools menu, the run the "COM Registration fixing tool".

According to the list at:  https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/nvdapy3.en.html it isn't yet compatible.  Rui Fontes is listed as the author, and Rui is fairly active on here, so hopefully we can find out.  Rui are you reading this thread?

Re: Word Count

I'm sure there isn't but if you are using any sort of competent word processor, it will have a word count feature.  I don't recall a screen-reader offering a word count feature, though it appears yours does.  I never used Dolphin.

at Quentin, Hi, i have been talking with the dev of RH Voice, the addon does work with latest versions of nvda, but something quite recent has broken the voices selection ring. You can select a voice but You just get what ever default voice You had. The dev has had this reported to her from another user. so sorry if I seemed a bit snippy. I sort of thought You were just dismissing the problem and just putting it on the addon, anyway sometimes we bash an email out and we read it and it can seem harsher than intended. so I again on list say I am sorry if I seemed a bit snippy, the dev says she will take a look at it when she can for now we have to live with the bug all the best to all on this list over the festivities.

Well, the choppiness is not so noticable, but it is present and also words

Re: dropbox issue

Gene
 

If you use Dropbox and use the application, you will have it forced on you.  There is no way to stop the application from automatically updating when the update is sent to you.
 
Do you know how to open Dropbox properties in the system tray?  Open properties, tab around and set the combo box to show folders in Windows Explorer.  I don't know if it says file explorer in Windows 10.  There is no way to make the permanent change in the actual opened application itself.

I think you may be working with different versions – whilst thankfully  I have not got this new version yet I have seen others on another list complaining about the dreadful accessibility of the new DropBox.

From memory the advice there was to go into the new app settings and change view settings so that Windows File Explorer was again the default vehicle for DropBox rather than the new app and possibly use something like “Classic” view settings.

I cannot be definite as I have personally managed to avoid the new DropBox app.

Are you talking about the new interface?  You can return to the old interface.  Do you know how to get to properties of Dropbox in the system tray?  Tab around and change the combo box to show folders in Windows Explorer.  I don't know if it says file explorer in Windows 10. 
 
This shows the importance of not assuming a solution isn't available without asking on lists like this or the chat list to be sure.  At times, people go through a lot of trouble and inconvenience because they assume that if they haven't found one, there is none.
