Re: Differential behavior with NVDA Portable versus Installed when working with Microsoft Word on windows 10

 

Welcome Walter.

Sorry that what comes next isn't exactly welcoming, but it needs to be said:  Versions, versions, versions!  We need those for Windows 10, including build number, and both the installed instance of NVDA as well as the portable instance of NVDA to further pursue this.

Differential behavior with NVDA Portable versus Installed when working with Microsoft Word on windows 10

Walter <walterzuiderwijk@...>
 

Hi I just wanted to introduce myself.
My name is Walter Zuiderwijk I have an NVDA problem at work.
When I start a portable version of NVDA and I open microsoft it gets blocked. Then I get the message that the program is closing and a solution is given if it is available.
When I then started NVDA locally from the computer together with someone, there was nothing to worry about, which was an older version than the portable version, which was the newest version.
Do you maybe know what the problem is?
Thank you very much for any solution

Kind regards walter

Re: NVDA does not read the context menu in the Edge browser

What is wrong with the idea?  Web sites do have a legitimate interest in advertising.  What Brave does is substitute its own ads that are not intrusive and not targeted and shares the revenue made by those advertisements with sites that participate in the program.  It is the only ethical way I’ve seen to try to deal with the constant and widespread abuses of advertising as it is currently practiced online.

Brave works well both in my experience and in the experience of reputable reviewers.  The advertising system is somewhat in place but it has nothing to do with whether you can access sites or work with them whether those sites participate in the advertising model.  Brave gives excellent protection against seeing other advertisements and against being tracked.  

 

To clarify, it may be that some sites will block Brave just as they do other browsers that  want you not to use an ad blocker on their sites.  But that is not a problem with using Brave itself, though in such cases, it is far easier to just use a different browser than to fool around with Brave settings just for this or that site.

I’m a little dubious about Brave and their someday-to-be-imlemented advertising model. Vivaldi looks so cool. I have it and have used it a bit, but I wonder if there is a way to customise it a little more for use with screen-readers. Everything works, but as of now, screen-readers don’t seem to be able to tell the difference at all between webpage content and stuff that’s in browser. I guess it’s not a dealbreaker but it is kind of annoying.

Blake,

I use Brave, Chrome, Edge, and Vivaldi as well as Firefox.  The first four in that list are all Chromium-based browsers, and if you actually want another in your browser quiver consider Vivaldi as well as Brave.  I really like both because of their focus on browser privacy to the greatest extent possible and built-in ad blocking features.  I have to use uBlock Origin in Edge and Chrome for ad blocking, and it's really impossible to do anything with regard to the data mining that goes with Chrome (and, probably to a lesser extent, but still there, with Edge).

Firefox works well with NVDA, and they have been taking more of a privacy bent in recent releases, too, but that's still not one of their primary foci.

When it comes right down to it, none of us has any right to expect any specific browser (or other software) will necessary work as we hope it would.  That's why, these days, having the number of browser options we do, almost all of which are accessible, is a wonderful development.  There's more than one for everyone.

I'm not familiar with the Webex platform, however, When GoToMeeting
made a change to their interface I faced a similar issue. It turned
out that when stuck at the blank window there was a button highlighted
that said "Join Meeting", at which time pressing the spacebar advanced
me to the actual meeting room. I'm not sure if it's the same, but try
pressing the spacebar to see if you advance to the meeting room.

Also, The links for this list are posted on the bottom of each posting
and YES there is a searchable groups.io page for this list and it can
be found here.

Re: Webex Accessibility Regression

 

Well yeah.

Its why I have been updating initial stuff ahead of time but it was the main reason why I switched to nvda for my primary.

In the early days before I knew things would drop out completely as in reguards to vista and even xp, I retired my flatbed scanner ahead of time and my old recorder in stages.

That saved me 1000 bucks I would have had to spend all at once.

Then there was my pc which I had to update.

Then there were programs, and while a lot were opensource some I had to update.

Thankfully I was able to signup for the dolphin beta last year which meant I got my old screen reader back and didn't have to fork out for that to.

However that was wwhy I didn't update.

If I had to buy jaws myself I'd probably still be back on xxp to.

My next push up will be usb c when that appears, and how my system will continue.

With the end of most laptops without secondary storage, my next plan is either a desk tower or one of those miniture pcs so who knows.


I'd prefer to keep going as I have but that may not be possible, certainly its going to cost a lot less to move away from a full laptop especially since most of my work is at my desk.

I mean I will have a laptop for some remote stuff but it aint going to be my primary driver.

Though for those on windows 7 and 8 from winaero amd has just dropped support for their hardware so once hardware support does drop there will need to be forced updates.

But at a university where I do a lot of work they can't afford upgrading from xp for some applications and devices.

Those devices and applications cost millions to buy.

They will cost a lot more to upgrade and even before covid funding was being slashed all over the place.

I'd imagine it will be harder now.

My mum's work has just done an emergency update on their printer because it failed last year.

They thought about doing something in january as their unit kept jamming and being really bad.

They have just got an emergency order for a new unit and it finally came yesterday so yeah everything is going up in price.

Hello, Brian,


It's time to grow up and face reality. I haven't had any problems with the Microsoft disability tech support. Wenever they've asked me to do something like run the registration tool, I've done it. One time I had to do a repair of windows because of a problem but I was willing to do what they asked me to do. As far as internet explorer, it's gonna be gone next year so deal with it! What you say about not being able to download stuf using edge isn't true. I download stuff all the time using edge and haven't had a problem with it. It's time to get off of your soap box now and face facts! I won't say anything more.

That's a perfectly appropriate workaround.  Would you rather have no access in a business environment?

No one has said that the underlying issue will not be addressed and I'd actually be surprised if it wasn't, eventually.

You're a part of the development cycle, and the prioritization that goes into it, like anyone else.  Being given a functional workaround, even if it's suboptimal, is in no way, shape, or form "ridiculous" for use while a fix is being worked on (or even, worst case, if it weren't and that were your only option - it's still a workable option).

No company is obligated to give you accessibility in your preferred format, just that you be given accessibility.  Just as no company is obligated to provide you with your preferred screen reader, just that a screen reader capable of being used for the work expected is provided.

Hi,

 

We also use WebX for meetings at the company I work for. This is exactly the problem I'm having as well. We have raised these issues with local Cisco representatives serving our company. They told us we should use the web version for a while. This is ridiculous; because using the web version slows me down in the business environment. As long as I don't need to make a presentation at the meeting, I attend the meetings using a mobile application. I use the web version when I need to present. cisco did not use a standard interface shell in its WebX implementation. This seems to be due entirely to that.

Re: NVDA does not read the context menu in the Edge browser

Hi.
This is interesting. I'm not using edge at this time, but I wonder if, instead of backing up and tabbing, you could simply click the mouse.
Since you mentioned the virtual cursor, it sounds like you switched to jaws to do this.
But either NVDA or JAWS should be able to simulate a right mouse click on the item.

Hi Group,

I do use Edge browser on occasion, but with this discussion, I tried to reproduce the issue. I did reproduce it. However, being of a curious and experimental mindset, I played around or about 5 minutes and found that although in the virtual cursor, the press of the Windows context key or the shift + F10 keystroke does not produce the visible context menu, when I turn off virtual cursor and then tab to the desired link and then press the Windows context key, the menu does in fact open. It is not voiced but if you do the following, you have full access to the context menu.

1. Find the link that you want using the virtual cursor.
2. move your cursor back a link or two and then turn off the virtual cursor.
3. tab to highlight the desired link.
4. then press the windows context key.
5. Nothing is voiced, so press up/down arrow key or use first letter navigation to bring up the desired item.

In addition, if you don't want to interact with a particular link, then highlight a piece of non linked text or a blank spot and turn off the virtual cursor to get the other non link context menu: back, forward, view source, add to collection and so on.

While this is a bit clumsy, it does work and if you need to use Edge, for now, that's the way to go.

Re: Problem updating from beta3 to beta4

Hi,


It's better to install it from the announcement link instead of "check for updates". That's how I got it.

Hi.
I am having a problem updating from beta3 to beta 4 of nvda 2021.1.

This is the first time I had an issue like this one.

I go in to help menu and I download the update.
I check the option about the incompatible addons and I press the install button.

I get the start music of the nvda installer.
The installer doesn't start and I get the following message.

As do I, and I'm "out of the loop" on this particular beta, which is unusual.

When it comes to betas in particular, I often don't use the update mechanism, period.  I download, uninstall the existing beta, and install the next beta version.  Your NVDA settings, add-ons, etc., are retained, so why not start as close to completely afresh as you can?

Hi, Quentin,


That's a great suggestion. Whenever there's a new beta version or official release, I always download from the announcement link instead of the "check for updates".

Hi everyone,

For anyone experiencing an issue updating from within NVDA to Beta 4 - please download the new beta from the release announcement - https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2021-1beta4/ - and update via that.

Apologies for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience!

Kind regards

I also had to go through the installer. I tried the "check for updates" and it failed too.

Government or no government, unless they have a special arrangement with Microsoft for extended support (and they might), it is absolutely unsafe to use an out-of-support version of Windows 10.

Given what's been in the news, heads would, and should, roll were a compromise to occur on a network where all the machines were running an unsupported version of Windows 10.

IT departments are always "the last to update," putting it off as long as they can, but there are limits.  And no one in charge who has one lick of sense would keep an out of support version running.  Now I'm really curious as to whether some sort of extended support is in place, because there are these arrangements for enterprise editions in particular.
