Re: tracking down NVDA triggers

 

Giles,

            There is likely some corruption in your Windows 10 installation itself that needs to be remedied.  The probability of this being an NVDA-based issue is very small indeed, particularly if you've already tried uninstalling NVDA and reinstalling it.


My standard advice, in virtually all cases, (and presuming any potential infection has already been addressed, first) is trying the following, in the order specified.  If the issue is fixed by option one then there's no need to go further.  Stop whenever your issue is fixed:


1. 
Using SFC (System File Checker) and DISM (Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management) to Repair Windows 8 & 10 


2. 
Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file


3. Doing a completely clean reinstall (options a & b are downloadable PDF files):

           a) Completely Clean Win10 (Re)install Using MCT to Download Win10 ISO File

           b) Completely Clean Win10 (Re)install Using MCT to Create a Bootable USB Drive

           c) How to do a CLEAN Installation of Windows 10  (Tom’s Hardware Forums, with screen shots)

I never choose the “thermonuclear option,” the completely clean reinstall, until it's clear that this is the only viable option. I hate having to go through all the work of reconfiguring a machine from scratch if that can reasonably and safely be avoided.

tracking down NVDA triggers

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi all,

It must be over a year ago that I mentioned that, on my Asus laptop, NVDA would consistently and apparently randomly, announce the current program's title bar. Replies came to the conclusion that something was triggering NVDA's focus to switch away and then back to what was the active window, causing NVDA to re-announce the window's titlebar.

I haven't been experienceing this for the last year because I got a new Dell laptop which doesn't suffer this effect. But, after the death of my Dell I'm back on the Asus and I'm puzzled what might be triggering this.

Is there any way through the debugging logs to figure out what is causing NVDA to do this?

On this laptop I'm using NVDA 2019.2 and Windows 10 Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.356)

Thanks for any thoughts ... I've not used NVDA with logging enabled before.

Giles


Re: In-Process 1st October

 

2 things. I still see the NVDA getting started audio from 2017 up in the store. Also, if we bought the first getting started audio how do we get the new, upgraded, version?


Re: Zoom with nvda

Ralf Kefferpuetz
 

Hello,

I fully agree, Zoom is very accessible. I use it in my company daily many times since it  replaced webEx and Skype for Business for our conference calls. Even the presentation pane can be focussed easily and the content of it can be read with NVDAs OCR (NVDA-r).

 

Cheers,

  Ralf

Hi,

 

I read their training materials and it worked well for me. Also, their tech support is excellent, and they have been trained about screen readers. I am not saying that they know keystrokes and all that, but they do have a clue about screen readers. Try their training materials first. Oh, and I love Zoom.

About the time limit thing, you read correctly. Alt+a mutes and unnmutes audio, alt+v turns on and off your video. NVDA WILL READ ALERTS TO YOU. Alerts are when you turn on/off video, audio, or when someone joins the meeting.

 

If you are in the home tab, you will see a search field. Tab past that, and you will see a drop down button. When you down-arrow, you will eventually get to settings. Most everything explains itself as far as settings go. There is a tab under settings that gives you all keyboard shortcuts you could ever want. You can change them if you wish to. I hope this helps you a bit.

It looks as though you can do one on one for free but if in a group only up to 40 minutes for free if I read it right.

 

Has any one used it or have notes on it to use it.

 

I have been asked to use it they sent me a link and it is all setup to go into a room etc and had a look around the app I think you would call it.

 

But I was also looking at it from the other side you setting up a room or inviting some one into the room etc if you get what I mean but not going into all the other features it has.

 

 

Any help would be great I guess also down the track to try it out from the other side the basic's of using it with some one.

Monthly Group Rules Reminder for the NVDA Group (nvda@nvda.groups.io)

nvda@nvda.groups.io Group Moderators <nvda@...>
 

This is the NVDA Group Monthly Reminder Notice, which is meant to re-emphasize the NVDA Group Rules.

The central purpose of the NVDA Group is discussing how to use NVDA, either configuring NVDA's settings or familiarizing oneself with its modes and commands.  Discussions about which programs are accessible using NVDA, NVDA add-ons, NVDA tutorials and documentation, and configuring synthesizers or Braille displays for use with NVDA are also permitted.  Like all screen readers, it is a tool for accessing something else, and really serves no other purpose.  Its function as an accessibility tool is, of course, its reason for being.

It is presumed that the majority of members will be using NVDA, and possibly other screen readers, as part of their daily routine.  This being the case, before you post a message you have to consider whether the question you are about to ask is actually about NVDA itself, or about the program you’re using it to access.  Questions of the form, How do I use . . . with NVDA?, are very seldom about NVDA, but are almost always about the program being accessed with NVDA.

The NVDA Group has a Chat Subgroup (see: https://nvda.groups.io/g/chat, Group Email Addresses section) that has as its purpose the asking of virtually any “off-topic” question about anything you can think of, including just socializing.  It should be used for exactly that purpose. The Chat Subgroup has generally had technically focused topics related to using features of the programs that one is using NVDA to access or about other programs that have proven helpful.  Only those who are already members of the NVDA Group can subscribe to the Chat Subgroup.  

Before choosing where to post, please ask yourself the question, “Is what I’m about to ask or offer directly related to controlling or using NVDA, or whether a specific program is accessible with NVDA?”  If that can be answered, “Yes,” then post to the NVDA Group, and if the answer is, “No,” then the topic belongs in the NVDA Chat Subgroup.

In order to make your experience, and those of all other members, as pleasant as they can be, please follow these practices:

1.  Use threaded or conversation view in your e-mail client program or webmail and reading through the entirety of a topic before replying.  It gets you completely up to speed and avoids a lot of repetition.  If you choose not to use threaded/conversation view, please take the time to read through all messages from the group that are in your inbox prior to adding any reply to the group.  It’s the only way you can be sure you’re up to speed on any topic when not using threaded/conversation view.

2.  Reading through all new topics before replying, as topics have a tendency to get split upon occasion and often an answer ends up being in a separate topic.

3. If you have reason to believe your question has likely been asked and answered in the past please search the Group Archive first before asking it again.  Step-by-Step instructions for searching the group archive using the Groups.io search or a web search engine of your choosing: Searching_the_NVDA_Group_Archive.docx.  Please consider using a web search first for questions that have almost certainly been asked frequently and for which myriad answers, often in the form of tutorials, already exist.

4.  Think very carefully about the title you are going to give any topic you post.  The topic is the first (and, sometimes, only) thing a member sees and that may be how they decide if they’re going to look further.   Generic titles, such as “Help Me!,” are not helpful because they give no idea about what.  Compare that to something like, “NVDA not reading Excel cell contents,” or, “NVDA setting for pronouncing numbers,” where the exact issue where help is needed is front and center.   Even something like, “Need help with the following . . .,” lets the reader know that you are going to present a list of issues.

5.  Please avoid, “What is the best . . .?,” topics, because what qualifies as “best” is entirely subjective.   Topics of this sort are also always chat topics.  If you know you have specific needs then asking, “What {insert program type here} has the following features . . .,” is much more descriptive.   If you want to know what programs people like for a specific task, asking, “What’s your favorite . . . and why?,” is far more likely to get you the details you want to have.  Notice that none of the above questions ask about whether a program is accessible with NVDA.  If you’re asking something like, “Which {insert program class here} is accessible with NVDA?,” then it’s a main group topic.

6.  Any topic that is not about using NVDA to accomplish a task, or how to control NVDA, belongs in the chat subgroup, not the main group.  All questions about how to use the specific features of a program that you’re using NVDA to access, but not about NVDA itself, belong in the chat subgroup.

 

Respectful, even if slightly heated, disagreements will occur occasionally and will be tolerated provided what is described next does not occur.  Flaming, name calling, instigating arguments for their own sake that do nothing to advance anyone’s knowledge, pointed rudeness, and similar boorish behavior will not be tolerated.  If at any point one of you happens upon a message anywhere in the NVDA Group sphere, main or chat, that fits the preceding description then please report it to the group owner either via e-mail at, nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io, or, if you read via the web interface at https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/topics, then use the Report this message option that’s a part of the More button at the end of each message.  Please don’t add a protest message the topic.  If we receive a report and agree with it, the issue will be taken care of promptly.

 

If you find the amount of traffic from this Group, or any Groups.io group, overwhelming, then please download and read:

Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (docx)

Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (PDF)

Each of you has the ability to mute topics that don’t interest you, get digests instead of individual messages, or to set up topic preview for yourself via the Following Only and First Messages Also features used in conjunction with each other.  It is up to you to use those to manage your e-mail as you see fit.  It’s almost certain that there will be plenty of topics on the chat subgroup that will not be of the least interest to you as an individual. Setting up topic preview lets you pick and choose what you want to continue to see, and this function can be used on any Groups.io group.

Hi, Ollie:

Thanks for testing Signal. I wonder whether things might improve if the window itself were maximized. This was one of the pieces of advice I often got from tech foks whenever I ran into trouble with seeing the screen of a software program set up the first time around. Either it needs to be "maximized" from within or from outside by "maximizing" the link of said software program on the desktop. (I am still using Windows 7, so I have not tried Signal yet.)

And yes, let's compare notes on how it does on Windows. I would like to use in addition to the one installed on my iPhone.

Same as you, I am not sure whether it is okay to discuss this topic here or whether we shall do so privately.

Hello Cordelia,


I'm using Signal on android, and was just going to install it on Windows.


From what a friend told me, it should work wel with NVDA, because it
works in html.


He was complaining about the fact that Signal displays messages as a
table, rather than as a list on Windows,

but I haven't seen it myself yet.


If you agree, let's try and install it, and then compare notes, either
here or off-list.


I don't know whether this would be considered O.T., but it's about
NVDA's interaction with an app, so I don't know.


I'm a bit confused about what's on topic and what isn't.

I must admit, I really don't know any more about it than in the post.  My suggestion would be to email Neil, who is organising it, at neil.hines@... and I am sure he'll be able to give you more details about what is involved, what you would be expected to know coming into the course, and anything else.

NVDA on tablet with touchscreen only

Hello,

tablet-interactions with touchscreens only. I'm going to be going on a

podcast is on tablets. This is a surface pro something, it is running
win10.

Thanks.

Re: Zoom with nvda

 

About the time limit thing, you read correctly. Alt+a mutes and unnmutes audio, alt+v turns on and off your video. NVDA WILL READ ALERTS TO YOU. Alerts are when you turn on/off video, audio, or when someone joins the meeting.


If you are in the home tab, you will see a search field. Tab past that, and you will see a drop down button. When you down-arrow, you will eventually get to settings. Most everything explains itself as far as settings go. There is a tab under settings that gives you all keyboard shortcuts you could ever want. You can change them if you wish to. I hope this helps you a bit.

Hi guys


Does any one know of a tutorial for us to learn how to use this program?

There seems to be videos aimed more at the sighted.


I was browsing there website at https://zoom.us

It looks as though you can do one on one for free but if in a group only up to 40 minutes for free if I read it right.


Has any one used it or have notes on it to use it.


I have been asked to use it they sent me a link and it is all setup to go into a room etc and had a look around the app I think you would call it.


But I was also looking at it from the other side you setting up a room or inviting some one into the room etc if you get what I mean but not going into all the other features it has.



Any help would be great I guess also down the track to try it out from the other side the basic's of using it with some one.

Hi


I am looking at it from the windows desk top version with nvda.


I have got down how to do it from joining a meeting.

Except when we went to do it today he said I was clear but I could not hear him but both mic and speakers worked correctly on my side and he also said his before in another meeting.

But not in this one.



I have not done it from the other side yet running it but not the other way if hosting one or a person one on one if some one chats that way.


Apart from signing up for a free account writing down the basic's of it from that side then I need to try it out with some one to finish off the tutorial.

I guess a work in progress.


Would you have any thing written down? that I could follow?


Any help would be great if you could.


I guess also I will need to hook up with some one as well to test it out.

I might be able to do this between 2 computer here at home? or abroad.
