Single key navigation in Google Chrome

Greg Rhodes
 

Trying to use the Google Chrome browser. Running latest Windows 10 and NVDA on HP desktop. Single key navigation is not working in Chrome. Is there a setting or extension or add-on that I need? Thanks.

Re: Kindle for PC

The book I am looking at to purchase says it is word wise enabled.  Does this mean that NVDA will read the text of the book?

Re: Question about reading an entire line with NVDA

 


Hi Marcio
That were keystrokes from Windows, not from NVDA, so I thikn it doesn not explained in NVDA user guide or key command. It should be found in matireals about basic computer skill.

It helped a lot!
Now, is that described on the keystrokes' reference? I couldn't find it no matter where I could look for.
Thanks :)

Hi Marcio
Ctrl+down arrow is to move the focus to the next paragraph, and Ctrl+up arrow will move to previous paragraph. When focus move to new line, NVDA always read that line/

Subject: [nvda] Question about reading an entire line with NVDA

Hey guys, I'm here again :)
This time the question is about... well you saw it on the subject I suppose :)
So, the thing is: I found out that pressing CTRL along with the down arrow, NVDA will read the entire line from a text, regardless if that line is broken for some reason.
However, while I just found it out, I also found out that apparently, this  option isn't described on the NVDA's keystrokes refference.
So my question: is it actually something expected, that pressing CTRL+down arrow NVDA will read the entire line? If so, why isn't it described as an option?
Or, well, what would I be missing? Can anyone point me on the right direction? :)

Hi everyone,

Apologies for the slight delay in the announcement, and I see several
of you have already posted about it, but yes, NV Access is pleased to
announce that version 2019.1 of NVDA, the free screen reader for
Microsoft Windows, has now been released.

Highlights of this release include performance improvements when
accessing both Microsoft word and Excel, stability and security
improvements such as support for add-ons with version compatibility
information, and many other bug fixes.

In the release announcement at
https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2019-1-now-available/ there is
also important information about add-on compatibility. Note that
although the framework for having add-ons report versions
compatibility is there, and we encourage all add-on developers to
update their add-ons to include this if they haven't already - This
version of NVDA will however still allow installing and loading of
add-ons that do not yet contain Minimum and Last Tested NVDA version
information at all, but upgrading to future versions of NVDA (E.g.
2019.2) may automatically cause these older add-ons to be disabled.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Reporting an Issue with NVDA - Including Sample Submission

 

Hello All,

          I have still never nailed down how, precisely, one does this via github.

          Under 2019.1 (and it may have been occurring earlier, I haven't played with this recently) I have an MS-Word fillable form.  When I initially open the form and begin traversing the text edit fields and checkboxes, NVDA keeps saying "blank" rather than reading the labels assigned to each of these items until or unless I hit F1 on any one of them to force help text to appear once, then afterward the labels are being read.   However, for the checkboxes, when I hit spacebar to change state for them, I get no feedback as to "checked" or "unchecked," and I know it used to tell me the state the checkbox was in when I landed on it initially and after any key press that would toggle the state.

            I can submit the .dotx file from which each document gets created and/or an instance of the .docx document itself.   Something's changed, though, because I know this used to work as expected and without the need for any gyrations to get the labels for each form field to read as you traversed the form.

Re: Question about reading an entire line with NVDA

Gene
 

Evidently, you are reading a text document and not a word processor document or a web page in browse mode.  The command is a Windows command, move to next paragraph, and it works where a document has paragraph signs.  But a text file doesn't have paragraph signs; a paragraph is denoted by a blank line.  Windows doesn't look for blank lines so the command doesn't work there.  JAWS does look for blank lines so you can use the command in Notepad to move by paragraph, but not in NVDA.  This is an ability NVDA should add.

Using the accessible Kindle for PC can you use NVDA to read the text of the book or does NVDA just read the menues?

Re: checkboxes in word forms

 

Enes,

           If the form itself is not private then, sure, send me a copy.   So few people actually know how to create true fillable forms in MS-Word that this situation does not surprise me.  At least I can look to see what's going on (or not going on, as the case may be).

Excerp from the portable NVDA log.

 

Hi all,
As I mentioned in my earlier thread some days or weeks ago that in some dialog boxes like some Solver windows, NVDA was not reading the controls.
Today during class I managed to save the log from the portable copy of NVDA, version 2019.1 that I used. Below is the excerp.
For those of you who don't know, Solver is basically a built-in Excel add in that allows you to solve linear programming problems in Excel.

Any idea why this is happening? On my laptop NVDA worked fine with the Solver add in for Excel.

yes I can upload the new version there for you to download.

different kind of browsers errors!

Hi everyone,

Apologies for the slight delay in the announcement, and I see several
of you have already posted about it, but yes, NV Access is pleased to
announce that version 2019.1 of NVDA, the free screen reader for
Microsoft Windows, has now been released.

Highlights of this release include performance improvements when
accessing both Microsoft word and Excel, stability and security
improvements such as support for add-ons with version compatibility
information, and many other bug fixes.

In the release announcement at
https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2019-1-now-available/ there is also
important information about add-on compatibility. Note that although
the framework for having add-ons report versions compatibility is
there, and we encourage all add-on developers to update their add-ons
to include this if they haven't already - This version of NVDA will
however still allow installing and loading of add-ons that do not yet
contain Minimum and Last Tested NVDA version information at all, but
upgrading to future versions of NVDA (E.g. 2019.2) may automatically
cause these older add-ons to be disabled.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: checkboxes in word forms

Hi Brian,

This hasn't been done. It is in compatibility view even, so they didn't bother to write it in a recent version of office.  I will send you a copy if you want. A sighted person can perfectly interact with the checkbox, but it is completely impossible with NVDA.

Enes,

            Is the form protected from editing?  (That is, set to "fill in forms" mode).  If it is you should get "checkbox unchecked" when you land on a checkbox and space or enter will typically work.

            Many people forget to put editing restrictions on after creating a form, and they won't work correctly as fillable forms unless that has been done.

Subject: [nvda] Question about reading an entire line with NVDA

 

Hey guys, I'm here again :)
This time the question is about... well you saw it on the subject I suppose :)
So, the thing is: I found out that pressing CTRL along with the down arrow, NVDA will read the entire line from a text, regardless if that line is broken for some reason.
However, while I just found it out, I also found out that apparently, this  option isn't described on the NVDA's keystrokes refference.
So my question: is it actually something expected, that pressing CTRL+down arrow NVDA will read the entire line? If so, why isn't it described as an option?
Or, well, what would I be missing? Can anyone point me on the right direction? :)

Cheers,

Re: accessible survey platforms

Hi,

That can also be said for Qualtrics surveys, however  creating them is most assuredly not.

On 3/25/2019 5:13 PM, Sam Bushman wrote:
I don't know about creating the survey's access.
However, I do know that Surveymonkey survey's are easy to use and they speak well with NVDA and other screen readers when taking a survey.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

hi all,

I am in search of an accessible survey platform to conduct my research.
I recently discovered that Qualtrics isn't accessible, so does anyone here know of one which is? Specifically, is Ibexfarm or Surveymonkey more usable?

Best,

Enes
