Use Chrome extension?

Aine Kelly Costello
 

Hi, does anyone know where exactly with the keyboard I can find Chrome extensions, to use them with NVDA? I can add them fine, and I see the menus for managingthem by disabling/removing/changing permissions, but for some reason I can’t work out how to actually launch them? Thank you,

Re: wx and python 3.8.0

 

Hi,
Ultimately, that depends on wxPython, as there may or may not be a Python
3.8 optimized build.
Cheers,
Joseph

Dear all!


    I wanted to install wxpython in python 3.8 with

pip install wxpython

And one requirement could not be satisfied.

Pillow cannot install, because zlib library headers aren't available.

What shall I do?

Or shall I keep using python 3.7?

Thanks!

Re: waterfox new version scheme

 

Well that version seems to be gone and I wouldn't actually install it.

It did work, but it stopped youtube videos from playing and aparently from comments effected some video plugins.

I left a message on the makers reddit about this to which sadly seems to be the only way of contacting them but oh well.

Point is, its just not ready to go.

Its not a big showstopper I guess if you never play a video from an online site like twitch or youtube but else it is.

Re: Capturing computer audio

Chris Mullins
 

Hi

If I do not want NVDA to spoil a recording I switch it to silent mode.  I record a lot from Youtube and the fact that there are shortcut keys to control Virtual Recorder, means I can put focus on the start button of YouTube, use NVDA+s to put NVDA in silent mode, press Windows+Control+g to start the recorder, then press enter to start Youtube playing.  When I’ve recorded what I want, I press Windows+Control+h to stop recording, NVDA+s twice to restore NVDA speech, then do whatever I need to do with Youtube.  Virtual Recorder also has a settting to silence system sounds, so yu don’t get the chime of arriving emails halfway through your recording.  Works a treat.

 

Cheers

Chris

waterfox false alarm

 

Hi all.

Well, so much for waterfox classic.

There were people commenting on the post that it didn't seem to work with some sites.

I tried on youtube and it didn't work.

The download page had 56.2.1.4, the main link has been reverted, looks like its not ready to go.

At least I had a good look at it.

However I want my youtube, so I went back.

I'm convinced that web developers don't really think about accessibility unless they are reminded that not all users have a mouse or a screen to browse the web.
And it's not just web developers.   There has been great improvement in recent years in designing in accessibility, and accessibility issues are now identified in academic programs in computer science, but it will be years until programmers trained to think about accessibility as a "natural part" of programming have taken over the programming world and old code is slowly but surely replaced.

It is always worthwhile to point out accessibility issues since, as you note, some have never thought about them at all.  Consciousness raising is worth doing, if for no other reason than what may be produced in the future by those who had never had accessibility as a consideration in the past.

waterfox new version scheme

 

Hi all.

Well, its began.

Waterfox as we know it is no more.

There are 2 branches of waterfox.

Currently in beta is what is called waterfox current.

This branch is the main branch, using quantom engine, modern extentions and the like.

Waterfox classic is the old waterfox we know and love.

It will never be updated with any new features, but will be maintained with security and library updates.

Thats ok to.

Sadly, and not just in regard to accessibility issues, it's most often on the user's shoulders to convince the software/webpage maker that an issue exists.

Another of those, 'twas ever thus situations.

I would normally agree, but the issue on this page is so obvious… The only way to interact with the nest thermostat is through a graphic. There’s absolutely no page structuring a no links or buttons are even visible to the screen reader let alone accessible.

Because, as I've said before about many issues, most of them are idiosyncratic to the machine in question.   They may not even be able to reproduce your issue, so if you want them to look at it then it's up to you to submit samples.   That's the way it works.
