Hello,

I cannot find the preferences.

I pressed the keys Ctrl+Nvda+S, and there is a formating of documents.
There I unchecked anouncing the columns.

Anybody have accessible NAS recommendations?

John Isige
 

Hi everybody. I need a new NAS. Anybody have recommendations? Somebody wants to sell me a Synology from 2013. I see it has accessibility, at least somewhat.


https://www.synology.com/en-us/knowledgebase/DSM/help/DSM/Accessibility/accessibility


I'm looking for recommendations because I'm currently using a Western Digital MyBook Live. I can access most of it, but the way you delete shares is to click on a graphical icon that doesn't show up, so I can't do that myself. So I'm hoping to find one that has accessible management software. It seems like Synology's might work, but if anybody's got actual experience with something, I'd surely appreciate hearing about it. Thanks!

Re: Using Alpha snapshot 18199 Python 3 and my experiences!

David Csercsics
 

In limited testing, it seemed to work quite well, so far. Except that Braille Extender doesn't load. I'm wondering if it's better to have that in NVDA core anyway, as the built-in braille support seems a bit primitive. But I'm not sure what others think of that. Pretty much the only add-ons that I use are the Windows 10 essentials one, and the updater and the braille Extender because I prefer braille to speech anyway, and I like the screen reader to be light on resources and just make things work well. But I'll test it a bit more with web stuff, and the other things I usually use, and see how I might go about suggesting improvements. I'll dust off my Python and see if I might be able to help that way as well. I'm not familiar with Windows programming, but I did write some Python quite a bit for Linux console and a bit of C and C++ as part of my computer science courses, and I'd not mind picking it back up again, it's just getting acquainted with the Windows code.

I will start providing logs to nvda-dev soon. Here is one to get you started…

 

NVDA latest alpha snapshot, Windows 10 1903, Chrome 75, EspeakNg.

 

  1. In Chrome, go to www.google.com.
  2. In the search field, type any search terms. I used “test”
  3. Press enter to perform the search.

 

Actual results: Google.com in Chrome performs the search as expected. However, an error tone sounds after resuming browse mode. The log follows.

Hi all!

I am using the Python three 18199 latest alpha snapshot.

Experiences so far!

It works better in the Win10 Mail app than it ever has.

I get many error sounds, but I ignore them.

With Google Chrome, is very sluggish and I hear many error sounds.

I am having trouble navigating by form field especially.

In many other Win10 apps, is very sluggish, and is shutting down and coming back on!

Some examples:

News app, One Note, Weather app, and the MS store.

I am using one core voices, because decktalk add-on no longer works.

Some of the English eSpeak voices are not as clear.

In the settings app, it is not giving as much info and I have to press NVDA+Tab a lot to get that info.

These are my experiences so far.

I just want people to know what I have found so far!

Over all, it is working very well for Python 3.

This is very promising.

I can’t wait to get a lot of my add-ons back.

NVDA addon: Developer toolkit and Python3 support

Andy B.
 

Official release announcement

• Latest direct download: https://github.com/ajborka/nvda_developer_toolkit/releases/download/2019.1.2/developerToolkit-2019.1.2.nvda-addon

• Repository: http://github.com/ajborka/nvda_developer_toolkit

• Mailing list: http://www.groups.io/g/nvda-developer-toolkit

 

Direct all feature requests and bug reports to the mailing list noted at the top of this announcement.

 

Developer toolkit (DTK) is an NVDA add-on that assists blind and visually impaired developers with independently creating visually appealing user interfaces or web content. This is done by enabling DTK, navigating around the user interface or web content, then performing gestures to obtain information about the appearance, location, and size of the focused control. For some time, the NVDA project has been working on porting NVDA to Python 3. As of today, the NVDA project and add-on community requests add-on authors start porting their add-ons to Python 3. This announcement is not a new release. Instead, it covers the Python 3 transition.

NVDA 2019.3 is in the making, which is entirely based on Python 3. Consequently, this introduces problems with add-ons and additional community contributed code because a large part of Python 3 is not compatible with Python 2. Since DTK is written in Python 2, it cannot run in a Python 3 environment. Porting DTK to Python 3 will begin this weekend and will continue throughout the remainder of 2019. Starting tomorrow, DTK’s version number will switch to 2020.0 preview to signify the change to Python 3. Users will not lose access to the Python 2 version until January 1, 2020 or 30 days after the official release of NVDA 2019.3, whichever comes first. After that time, DTK will drop support for Python 2, and versions of NVDA earlier than 2019.3. Until then, DTK 2020.0 preview will work as expected in all NVDA versions from 2019.1 and later. Another announcement will follow when DTK is completely Python 3 ready.

I read the guidelines but they were a little confusing to me as it seemed to say something different in two different sections. If I am out of line with my question just let me know.

 

I use NVDA all of the time on my laptop and would love to use it for all of the programs that I have to use. Are there any plans or is there already and ad-on that I do not know about for Duxbury?

Important notice: the end is approaching for users of Joseph Lee's add-ons on old NVDA and Windows releases

 

Dear NVDA community,

 

The following notice is applicable if you are using any of my add-ons under the following combination:

 

  • NVDA 2018.4 or earlier
  • Windows XP, Vista, 7 without Service Pack 1

 

For many years, many of my add-ons supported the above combination. Despite NV Access announcing that Windows XP support is no more as of NVDA 2017.4, I continued to support it in consideration for folks who might be using it. However, the time has now come to say goodbye to the above combination:

 

  1. All add-ons I have released so far (including ones I have maintained on behalf of the community) will continue to work on Windows XP, Vista, and 7 without SP1 for a while. In fact, today’s updates for the add-ons listed below will be the last releases to support these Windows releases.
  2. Support for old (and now unsupported) Windows and NVDA releases will be dropped from ALL my add-ons by end of this year. Although I don’t know the exact date, it’ll be either 60 days after release of NVDA 2019.3 stable or December 31, 2019, whichever is earlier. Some add-ons may end support early. Once this happens, you’ll need NVDA 2019.3 running on Windows 7 SP1 or later unless noted otherwise.

 

If you want to know which add-ons are affected, open Add-ons Manager and click About for each add-on. If minimum version is shown as 2017.3 or earlier (or perhaps 0.0), then the above notice applies.

 

For reference, the following add-ons are affected:

 

  • Add-on Updater: will require NVDA 2019.3 seven days after the stable version comes out.
  • Control Usage Assistant: although doesn’t apply directly, there will be no more updates after the nightlight release (later this year).
  • Easy Table Navigator
  • GoldWave: the next version (September) will require NVDA 2019.1 or later and GoldWave 6.
  • Object Location Tones
  • ObjPad

 

In addition, the following add-ons are under deep maintenance mode. Today’s update releases are last versions to support old Windows and NVDA releases, with the next version (scheduled for later this year) will require NVDA 2019.3 and will be the last releases from me:

 

  • Golden Cursor
  • SystrayList
  • Virtual Review

 

Cheers,

Joseph
