Re: NVDA and google chrome

Gene
 

I just tested using Chrome and the current version of NVDA.  I don't hear title.  But I do hear "clickable" before every heading in the web results is read.  I'm talking about the web results, where all these headings are links to results.
 
Also, if I down arrow, then up arrow back to the link, "clickable" isn't spoken.  If I up arrow, then down arrow to the link, it is. 
 
I'm using default settings.  I don't know how long this behavior has been occurring.  Usually, I have clickable not set to be spoken.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA and google chrome

Running Win 10 1903 and latest vversions of Google Chrome and NVDA.
My normal way of using Google Chrome is to enter my search data and hit
enter.  Then I use the h key to move by header to each of the results.
Noticing today that when I now do this NVDA says title before each
search result when I hit the h key.  Never noticed this before.  Did I
somehow change this to cause NVDA to say title?




Re: How can I make a shortcut on the desktop?

 

Given that several browsers now use drag and drop to create desktop shortcuts, I tell people to use this method, which is more complicated than what one can use in browsers that have a "create shortcut" function, but that is entirely browser agnostic.

1. Get to the address box for the page for which you wish to create the shortcut, do a CTRL+A to make sure it's selected, then CTRL+C to Copy.

2. Go to the Windows desktop via WinKey+D, then hit SHIFT+F10 to bring up the context menu.

3. Find the New item, Shortcut subitem (very often hitting W followed by S immediately after the context menu appears will do this, and open the Shortcut dialog).

4. In the text box labeled, "Type the location of the item," paste the URL you copied in step one, then activate the Next button.

5. In the box labeled, "Type a name for this shortcut," enter whatever you wish to have it called on the Desktop.  Activate the OK button.

You now have a shortcut on your desktop that will use your default web browser to open that web page.

How can I make a shortcut on the desktop?

Ibrahim Abedrabbo
 

Hello folks,

How can I make a shortcut for a website page on my desktop with NVDA? I googled this and I could not find clear instruction to follow with NVDA.

Any help would be appreciated.

The only well supported option I am aware of is Notepad++, for which there is an NVDA add-on. However, I haven’t been searching recently. I tend to use Emacs with a braille display to edit text files.

I should also add, for clarity and accuracy that until now, everyone has been telling you how to copy text.  If the link said click here, people have been describing how to select and copy those words to the clipboard.  What you are discussing, copy link location, is a completely different command and a lot of browsers have it in the ccontext menu.  for those who may not know, it copies the actual address which the link leads to. 
 
If the link text says Microsoft site, for example, and you use copy link location, you will get the address of the Microsoft site, where the link leads.

You are using shift f10.  That brings up the context menu and there is a command to copy link location in the Firefox context menu.  I just tried shift f9 and it toggles developer tools on and off in Firefox.  
 
You are discussing the same thing as someone else, how to bring up the context menu.  I described a method that may work but we'll see

Announcement of Tracked Changes in Word

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi all,

I don't often use tracked changes in Word but needed to on a placement with a publisher back in May and I did again recently. I don't have any trouble making edits with tracked changes on, but is there any way to get NVDA to announce ‘Tracked Changes On’ when the shortcut keystroke Press control+shift+e is pressed to turn them on or off, the way that ‘Bold on’ / ‘bold off’, ‘italic on’ and ‘italic off’ are activated with control+b and control+i?

It'd be handy to know whether tracked changes were on before typing, especialy if you start editing a docuemnt in the morning, then break for lunch and resume editing ... yes, you can type something but, if tracked changes are indeed already on and you stop to check whether the word you just typed has been registered as a change, then the next thing you type counts as a second tracked change rather than part of the first one.

Thanks :)

Giles


Re: python text editors

 

Recommendations for text editors that are both Python and NVDA friendly are just fine on the main group, as is discussion of any NVDA setting(s) to make the two things "play well together."

Any deep dives into using a specific editor with NVDA, which will focus on that text editor rather than NVDA, should be taken to the Chat Subgroup.

Re: NVDA and google chrome

 

Don,

            What search engine are you using?   I have noticed recently that my personal favorite, DuckDuckGo, has revised the format of its search results in a way that makes even selecting something with the mouse far more difficult/frustrating.

             It's up to those coding the search engines how they choose to present the results, and something might have been tweaked.  I can't say this for certain, though.

locked Re: the opera browser

 

Hello All,

             It's time for this topic to come to a close.

             I've used Opera, and like it, but it's just another among many Chromium-based web browsers, and since NVDA and other screen readers have long ago become proficient at working with Chromium then any browser based upon same tends to be completely or very nearly completely (if they've done a few odd bits) accessible.

              But the topic strayed far away from anything that can be even vaguely considered as NVDA-centric quite a while ago.  Please take this to the Chat Subgroup if anyone wishes to extend the conversation.

Hi,

I tried it and it is pretty fast and yes once can read articles with the annoyance of ads.  I could not use the Shift—F9 to copy a link.  Is there another way to do that.

Thanks

Blessings

What? Opera browser still exists?  I’ve heard of it when I was on the jaws list. Not the list that Debbi Scales ran. She was for beginners and advancing users. I was on the list for more advanced users. There was where I heard about the Opera Browser. Can anybody use it? Or is it for more advanced users where they do computer coding? Sorry for the long message. I thought Opera was a thing of the past.

Well opera is not just for that opera can also be used as your every day browser and it is very fast.  If you try it I think you will all like this browser and you mite make it your default.

Oh, okay. When I was on the advanced Jaws list. People complained that opera was not very user friendly.  I never tried it I thought it was for deep coding! I guess it got better as time went on. I never seen questions about it in windows 7. Not until now.

Here are two possible ways to bring up the context menu. 
 
Try unloading and running NVDA.  Now and then, a screen-reader isn't running properly and keeps a command from functioning.  Rarely, I've had the context menu not open and unloading and running the screen-reader solved the problem.
 
Regarding how to bring up the context menu, if the standard keyboards methods don't do so, try the simulated mouse.  Route the mouse to where you are with the command numpad insert numpad slash.  Hold numpad insert and press slash.  Then, after releasing both keys, move one key to the right of the numpad slash and press it.  That is the numpad star and it is the right mouse click key.  See if the context menu comes up.

The question is evidently being asked because the usual command doesn't bring up a context menu, at least in that installation.  The question also says in Opera, which implies that the context menus are being used in other programs.

Hi.  If you have a keyboard with a specialized context menu key, then it is one key to the left of the right control key.  The alternative is to press shift+f10.  Cheers!

Pascal.  I'm not sure if this is what you want to do, but arrow down to the link you want to copy, press shift+DownArrow to select it, then press the context menu key and arrow down to copy link address and press enter.  the link should now be copied to your clipboard.  I hope it helps.  Cheers!
