Re: compatible gmail notifier with nvda

Chris Smart
 

Well, you could just tell an email program like Thunderbird to use your Gmail account. I'm not sure if that's exactly what you're asking though.

For wt.social users with NVDA

Marco Oros
 

Hi.

If You have tried, or You use WT.social with NVDA please, write to developers about accessibility of some features for the blind.

I have done that, for example about Subwiki menus and Create a post heading.

If You don't know, what is this site about, so this is new social network without any spams and advertisement created by Wikipedia's developer.

It is not for pay, but You can donate, if You want and It'll be good to inform about those things developers of WT.social.

Thank You.

best regards

Marco Oros


CheckState of menu items in WindowsForms are not shown

Yeti <jbslists@...>
 

Hello NVDA users and developers,

I've a windows forms application developed under .net 4.8.

It contains some menu items, that can be checked or
unchecked by clicking.

Unfortunately NVDA does not report the current state, when
the menu item is focused.

This seems to be a problem of NVDA, because the Windows
Narrator under Windows 10 reports the matching information
(checked).

Is this a known issue of NVDA or any unforeseen event on my
system?


Anyone any hint for a workaround or even a solution?

When you move to focus I have noticed that numpad 4 and numpad6 moves you through the focused area.

NVDA announces  move to focus which is I think the NVDA equivalent. As NVDA does not have a Jaws cursor function in the same way as Jaws I think it has to be used more with object navigation but I will leave others more qualified to comment on this.

Input gestures dialogue section in user guide

Khalid Anwar
 

 I feel that the input gestures section in the user guide is not very helpful, I think there are a couple of lines in section 12 about the dialogue but not many examples of how to actually use it,  and exactly what it can be used for.
 Perhaps a video tutorial or audio podcast might be better served to explain this. 


Re: folder view list

Here is a little more info. As I said when on the desktop it will say either desktop view or file list view. If you tab to the show desktop button and hit enter on it it toggles between the two. But what agin is the difference between desktop view and file list view?

Re: input help

Sarah k Alawami
 

Let me even add a shorter step that normally works for me.

If on the website or app move to screen review or document review.
Then press the route command and the click command. I never ever use object move as I'm always in screen review when I check stuff. I can use my nvda shift left and right arrows to check where I am object wise.

I haven't used the utility. In NVDA, the object navigator, by default, follows the cursor or the item you move to in a list so you are likely to already be there in terms of where the object navigator is located. Use read current line when you first use the utility to confirm that. While that is the default action, if something is programmed in such a way so that it doesn't happen, it is possible the object nnavigator won't be where it should be. But usually, it should be where you expect.
So do the following:

First, if you have changed to screen review, you must change back to object review. If you haven't, you can omit this step.
Use the command numpad insert numpad 1 until you hear no previous navigation modes or something similar or until you hear object nhavigation. You will then be using the correct navigation, object navigation.
As I said, you need only do this if you have switched to screen review.
Move to the item in the list as usual.
Press numpad 8 to be sure the object navigator is in the right place. You don't have to keep doing that but you want to make sure that in this utility, the object navigator is in the right place when you move with the arrow keys in the list. After you confirm this once, you can omit this check.
Then use numpad insert numpad slash to route the mouse pointer to the navigator object.
Then use numpad star to right click the item.

I shall now present the short way after you have used the long way this first time:
Move to the place you want to be in the list.
Use the command numpad insert, numpad slash.
Then use just numpad star to right click.
If you were left clicking you would use just numpad slash after you routed the mouse pointer with numpad insert numpad slash.

folder view list

Don H
 

Running latest NVDA on Win 10 20h2. Usually when I first boot my computer and load nvda when going to the desktop I simply hear the title of the icon I am on. However other times nvda says folder view list before saying the name of the icon. What causes this? No big deal just wonder why the difference.
Thanks
