Re: When nvda keeps turning itself on any time another program opens or shuts

Gene
 

This is very interesting. I know that when UAC runs and secure
desktop is used, installed copies of NVDA run another copy of
themselves. I think I can see how, when run at the login screen is
active, the UAC copy is run. Is that because the login screen is
secure in the way that the secure desktop is? If so, would simply
answering the UAC prompt cause NVDA not to run or does the other copy
continue in regular windows? If that happens, it is a problem because
it encourages people to turn off UAC in cases where the computer is
shared with a sighted person. Can this behavior be stopped?

Thank you Joseph. I think that sounds right, going to try it. I don't think it's ever been an issue before jut on windows 10 all 3 computers are windows 10. Again thank you so much, you saved my sanity.

That, or try a different browser.   None of my browsers has any issue getting an HTTPS connection to that website.  There's nothing on it to be concerned about were you using a straight HTTP connection, either.

Podcast - Speak On as a Podcast Reader

David Griffith
 

I have never distributed my Speak On material through this list before but given the recent interest here in using Speak On as an option as an accessible eBook Reader and Podcast Reader I thought that I should do so just this once.

There is a Speak On Mailing list where both I and Isaac the program developer reside with others which may, in future,  be more appropriate for more detailed discussion of Speak On.

Details below.

 

I finished the Podcast on using Speak On as   a Podcast reader yesterday and the link to this is also provided below. I think it is OK though I have not listened all the way through.

 

The Podcasts are being distributed by talking Computers on a monthly basis and will be eventually hosted also on the Speak On Web Site. However, especially at the moment I have no problem with any others linking through their websites etc so that as many as possible enjoy Speak On now in what are difficult times.

 

First is a link to the most recent Podcast and then the full list.

Re: When nvda keeps turning itself on any time another program opens or shuts

 

Hi,
One possibility: are you talking about User Account Control? If yes, that will explain why, and to turn that off, one must disable "Use NVDA on the Windows logon screen (requires administrator privileges)" Checkbox found in NVDA settings/general panel.
Cheers,
Joseph

Try using the task manager to shut down NVDA. I don't recall if you said which version of Windows you are running, but if you need to know how to do it, let us know. If that doesn't help, I may be out of ideas.

Re: How accessible is Zoom with NVDA?

The only part of Zoom which isn't fully accessible is the text chat feature, butjust about everything else is able to be accessed.
A rough estimate is that zoom is about 90% accessible right now.

Thanks Richard Sara and Brian,

I just installed the Zoom client for windows ten and signed in to my university business account. On the surface, it seems that the menus are accessible with NVDA 2019.3.1 but I am not sure about the submenus and pulldown menus. I need to try it with someone to have a firsthand experience with it. I need to figure out how to setup a meeting on a specific time and send the invitation to an entire class, ETC.

Does anyone have a quick tutorial?

Zoom has been discussed many times, and particularly in recent days.  The consensus seems to be that it is quite accessible with NVDA.

See the topics on the archive:

And many others.

Zoom is extremely accessible with Zoom. Some things could be improved. However, it is not a show stopper.
