Re: item from the speach dictionary disappears

Quentin Christensen
 

Which speech dictionary did you add it to?  There are three:

Default: rules in this dictionary affect all speech in NVDA.
Voice: rules in this dictionary affect speech for the synthesizer voice currently being used.
Temporary: rules in this dictionary affect all speech in NVDA, but only for the current session. These rules are temporary and will be lost if NVDA is restarted.


If you add something to the temporary dictionary it will behave as you describe.  If you add something to the other dictionaries they should stay there.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: Alt Keys In Edge Not Working For Menu Access

Gene
 

I’m not sure what the problem is that is being described, but this is evidently a change where what used to work in Edge no longer does. 
 
In Chrome, just pressing alt doesn’t open the menu.  If you hold alt and type f, the menu opens.  But I don’t think this is the problem being discussed, though I’m not sure what is being described that used to work.

Alt key alone doesn't work in a lot of modern probgrammes including, I think, chrome...modern programmes do not really have a "menu bar" as such so the alt key by itself does nothing, rather than take you there as it does in old windows programmes  that have the traditional bar at the top of the window.

radical change to dropbox

ken lawrence
 

Hi list ken here.  Just now wanting to put a file into our station dropbox got a shocker.  A whole bunch of buttons not the list of folders.  I see the one folder I’m in but a whole bunch of add people the names of the people in it and buttons.  Not folder itself our station manager says it’s a change dropbox has made in the view.  She’s going to email me the quick fix but how does this change impact the NVDA ad on?

Re: Alt Keys In Edge Not Working For Menu Access

 

Whoops, Ignore the last item for getting the About information for the browser, as this definitely varies across the Chromium-based browsers.

It's part of Help for Chrome (ALT+F,E,G) and Edge (ALT+F,B,M) and for Brave it's a standalone item reached via ALT+F,B,B,Enter  (there are two Bs because they use B as a shortcut letter for both Bookmarks and About Brave, so you have to hit it twice to gain focus on the latter).

Re: Alt Keys In Edge Not Working For Menu Access

 

All of the Chromium-based browsers have never used a conventional menu that one makes display with just ALT.  There is a menu key, which can be activated either by ALT+F or ALT,DownArrow.  

After doing so, what used to be the entire menu structure opens in dropdown with dividers between what had been the separate menus.  I personally like this better.  Virtually every single item on those menus has a shortcut letter or, even better, a full keyboard shortcut such that you never need to invoke the menu.  Here's a list of the most commonly used ones that are common across browsers.  In the case of new Edge, substitute the term Favorites for Bookmarks (and why Microsoft didn't ditch the Favorites terminology I'll never understand):

New Tab CTRL+T
New Window CTRL+N
New Private/Incognito Window CTRL+SHIFT+N
 
History CTRL+H
Open most recently closed tab CTRL+SHIFT+T
 
Bookmark this tab CTRL+D
Bookmark all open tabs CTRL+SHIFT+D
Open Bookmark Manager CTRL+SHIFT+O
Show Bookmarks Bar CTRL+SHIFT+B
 
Open Downloads Manager CTRL+J
 
Print CTRL+P
 
Find (browser find) CTRL+F
 
Settings ALT+F,S  or ALT,DownArrow,S
 
About browser (get version info) ALT+F,A

iven voice i believe that its the most lovely, sweet, friendly, and

i can read hundreds of pages of book with this excellent voice using SayAll!

its voice is very understandable, (but i only love english US voice

and its one of the main reasons that i cant use beyond 2017.2 and

2017.3 versions of nvda.

2017.4 and later, has not the capability of using persian plus english US!

4. many people like me, hate ribbons and they are glad for using jaws,

because jaws has virtual ribbon menues, that enables them to use

ribbons as they use classic menues!

5. jaws is very customizable, and has numerous settings for change.

Re: Ocr with nvda.

Quentin, thank you so very much. I learn so much from this list. I had no idea that OCR was available with Windows 10 as I only learn as I go. I will definitely be trying this out the next time I receive an image PDF file via an email.


Again, thank you so much.

If you are using the add-on (because you are using Windows 7 or 8) then you use object navigation, if you are using the inbuilt OCR (as covered in the user guide) then once you have recognised the text, you can use your regular navigation and reading keys.

Basically, navigate to the object in question - a graphic on a webpage, or open a PDF which is inaccessible, etc. Next press NVDA+R (the NVDA key is either INSERT or CAPS LOCK depending on your settings) then use your regular reading and navigation keys to read the result (eg arrows or NVDA+down arrow / NVDA+A to read all). When done, press ESCAPE.

I wrote a piece for our In-process blog awhile ago which has exact steps and an image to practice on if that helps: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/in-process-5th-october-2017/  (it also covers both the add-on and the in-built Windows 10 OCR).

from nvda user guide:

9. Content Recognition
When authors don't provide sufficient information for a screen reader
user to determine the content of something, various tools can be used
to attempt to recognize the content from an image. NVDA supports the
optical character recognition (OCR) functionality built into Windows
10 to recognize text from images. Additional content recognizers can
be provided in NVDA add-ons.
When you use a content recognition command, NVDA recognizes content
from the current navigator object. By default, the navigator object
follows the system focus or browse mode cursor, so you can usually
just move the focus or browse mode cursor where desired. For example,
if you move the browse mode cursor to a graphic, recognition will
recognize content from the graphic by default. However, you may wish
to use object navigation directly to, for example, recognize the
content of an entire application window.
Once recognition is complete, the result will be presented in a
document similar to browse mode, allowing you to read the information
with cursor keys, etc. Pressing enter or space will activate (normally
click) the text at the cursor if possible. Pressing escape dismisses
the recognition result.
9.1. Windows 10 OCR
Windows 10 includes OCR for many languages. NVDA can use this to
recognize text from images or inaccessible applications.
You can set the language to use for text recognition in the Windows 10
OCR settings dialog. Additional languages can be installed by opening
the Start menu, choosing Settings, selecting Time & Language -> Region
& Language and then choosing Add a language.
To recognize the text in the current navigator object using Windows 10
OCR, press NVDA+r.

Maybe if you two work together he can come up with a way. He really does want to fix this. You can just hit the discord button from the app itself.

This can’t work for NVDA because the entire shared screen shows up as one control, unless you use NVDA remote to parse the fields on the remote screen.

Actually I arrowed past the TAF and metar buttons into the sim brief website.
This is where things brake, as they work outside the browser tab with in this browser tab, but in the tab itself, which is not the main app but an applet inside is where things brake. Links cannot be clicked, check boxes cannot be checked, etc. The rest of the app works fine, except for the tabs. I know this is confusing, and i really am having trouble explaining. The developer know it is broken, but he really does not know how to make this work with NVDA, he wants to though.

Sarah,

I reviewed large portions of your log even though I only wanted to see the information about the active control you were concerned about. It appears that  after getting into the Sim program, you did quite a bit of navigation by link, header, and form field. Eventually, you arrived on a button called “t” “a” “f” at which point you typed insert f1 whereupon NVDA described all the parameters of that button including that it had a label defined by the developer. This button has a state of pushbutton, which I am not sure if that means hat it has some state or not. In JAWS  pushbuttons usually have a aria-pushed value to indicate if they are in or out. If indeed this TAF button is supposed to have two states, have the developer make sure that aria-pressed is toggled between true and false as appropriate.

HTH!

get some other points of you as well.

What do you think is essential for a user to have to be able to use NVDA
comfortably on a daily basis?

I appreciate everyone’s help and I hope you stay safe and have an amazing
evening/day/night.

New NVDA sounds

Ali Savas
 

Hello everyone,

some years ago the sounds of NVDA should have been renewed, but were
discarded.

Do any of you still have these sounds and could you send them to me?

Thank you very much in advance and best regards
Ali

Re: Reading PDFs in Edge Seemingly Broken

Agreed. I read my flight schedules in pdf and most of the time it renders fine in edge and brave. So here's hopign this is fixed so I don't have to do any quirky things just to get my paperwork read. Ok, this is fake, but reading my schjedule so I knowwhere Im going is kind of important. Lol!

Hi Ron,

I also find that Edge's presentation of mathematics is better than that in Acrobat. Far from perfect, but it at least seems to accurately represent most symbols, whereas, in my experience, Acrobat will just substitute alphabetic characters for a lot of mathematical or technical symbols.

Hi Sascha,

I agree with you.  The rendering of PDF files from my bank for example, is much better than the latest version of Acrobat Reader.  for once thing, for some reason, every time I load a file directly into Acrobat Reader, I get a blank page with a title 'reader view.'  This is rather new--only beginning with an update of Acrobat Reader some time in 2019, but to dismiss this, pressing escape or control + F4 does not work.  You have to alt + tab away from the program and then alt + tab back to it and then press escape.  Then you get the 'processing, please wait, percentage and then finally the document loads.  After that, the rendering is seldom as clean and structured as in the new Edge browser.

Hi Brian,

Personally, the only reason I use Edge is to read PDFs. I find that, almost all of the time, the way it interprets them is much better than Acrobat. If you can suggest a better alternative, I'd love to hear about it!

Sascha

For anyone who is of the same opinion I am, and cannot stand dealing with PDFs within browser windows anyway, it is possible to make any browser open them using the system PDF reader you have installed on your system and set as the default.  I never like dealing with PDFs except in a dedicated PDF Editor or reader.  Instructions follow.

Making Chromium-based Browsers (Chrome, Brave, New Edge, etc.) Open PDFs in Your System Reader

  1. Ensure that the PDF Reader of your choosing  is installed on your computer.  Also make sure that it is what is set to handle files with the PDF extension (which it generally is already).
  2. Activate the Menu button (ALT+F), then choose Settings.
  3. What you do now will vary slightly based on the browser.
    1. For Chrome and Brave, in the Privacy and Security pane, select Site Settings.  For Brave you will have to activate the Additional Settings button before the Privacy and Security pane item becomes visible and accessible.
    2. For Edge, simply choose the Site Permissions pane.
  4. Scroll down and select “PDF documents“.
  5. You are now at the toggle that you need to switch to ON.  How it’s labeled varies slightly among the browsers:
    1. Chrome: Download PDF files instead of opening them automatically in Chrome
    2. Edge: Always open PDF files externally
    3. Brave: Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Brave

At this point close out of settings to save the changes you’ve made

Now when a PDF file is triggered, it will download via your browser just like any other file.  If you have things set up to go to your Downloads folder, that’s where it will be placed.  If you have the browser set up to ask you where to save it, you’ll get the save dialog.  Once the download is finished, the typical status comes up on the bottom of the screen indicating it’s complete, and giving you options of what to do if you activate the button for that file.  If you select the downloaded PDF file at the bottom of the window, then choose Open, then the file will open in a separate Reader window.  If you also activate the “Always open files of this type” option from then on any PDF file will not only automatically download, but automatically open in the PDF Reader you have set as the default one on your system.

Re: Any accessible hex editors for screen reader users?

Unless this has changed, look under the Advanced menu, the Configuration option which exposes a huge list of configuration settings. Move down to Advanced/Problem solving, then to Enable old style (Pre-V9) toolbars and menus (quicker load times and more compatible with some screen readers) and turn it on with the Spacebar. See if that might fix the issue. They have always made provision for accessibility, so I would think there should be accessibility settings in the newer version also.

Keep well

Christo

The latest release is very different than the version you are using. The menus have radically changed. I had to turn off colour syntax to get things to read out the edit field correctly. Still playing with the settings.

Hi

 

I am using UltraEdit version 10.10B. I believe there are newer updates, but I have not updated it yet. I have used it without any issues with Window-Eyes until Window-Eyes died. Since then I am using it with NVDA. I don't know how well it works with the Shark, but with Window-Eyes and NVDA there have not been any accessibility issues at all.

 

Kind regards

Are used to use ultra edit a few years ago And stop you that because I found the interface not as friendly for JAWS for Windows.  If this has changed I will be definitely looking at it again.

Hello

 

UltraEdit has a very good hex editing feature and many other powerful editing functions. This is a real programmer's or techie's editor. But it is not free. I think it costs around $60. I have it and do things with it that I have not been able to do in other editors I have worked with. Notepad++ comes closest, but it doesn't offer hex editing.

 

Kind regards

Re: Ultra Edit issues

 

If this conversation is to be extended, it belongs on the Chat Subgroup, as it deals with the configuration of Ultra Edit.  And, yes, I know that's so it can be made accessible, but it's still about how to configure Ultra Edit, which is a completely separate issue from NVDA (or any other screen reader for that matter).
