Hi


Just confirmed to send a voice message just under the chat part to the person. You just need to go into browse mode hit the space bar on the button and the first time allow your camera or mic. Then after that find the button again hit the space bar on the button record the message you can also arrow up to see the duration of the recording then arrow back down to the button and hit the space bar on the button to stop it and send it. Just been added into the tutorial. It would make it so much easier if they were labled.


Now to see what sections are under the attachments section and add them in if all goes well.


Not sure if i can do a new group but think you need to drag and drop people into the chat unless it lets you add them in by text.

Correction, the WhatsApp desktop client can send audio messages. There is a button at the bottom of the chat, that can send voice notes. It's not labelled. You can press the button to record, then press the button again to stop recording and send the message. I normally go to a next chat to cancel.

Hi


I will have another sus later on today. I will also get my wife to say what there is under the attachments part in the program. I know there was a couple of things but un labeled. I am also going to see if the golden mouse thingy might be able to get me to the correct places. I tried it before I could nate a position but was not read out but could get to it.


I will also have another look under the chat part for the audio note you spoke about I thought I did see it come up some where but not sure of the section? in whats app.


Then once I know will add it into the tutorial much easier if the buttons were labeled correctly in the program.

Hi


The following from a tutorial I was writing has the short cut keys for it in it.


I did not finish it as if you want to send attachments they are not labled  etc but could be added to say the options.


*Using WhatsApp with nvda

*WhatsApp  for web
There is a app version which you can install on to your computer. The app version is the same as the web version in looks. Both the web version and app version can not do audio or video at present.
so you can only send and recieve messages on the computer.
You will need to go to the following web address at https://web.whatsapp.com/
Before you can use the web version you must have it setup on your mobile phone and already have a account setup. After you have signed into the app on your phone you will need to go to more options...settings....whats app web and double tap. This will also need to be done on the computer you are using.then you will have to scan in a Qr code. If the code needs to be refreshed while on the graphic use the NVDA key + enter key to do this. from the monitor for it to sign you in.
The computer must be on the same web address as above.

when you go to scan in the QR code The QR code is on the top right corner of the screen.

This can be a little tricky to do but after it scans the code what shows on your phone will show on your computer monitor.
You will neeed to do this from your phone to scan in the 'QR code.
The phone might vibrate when it has scanned in the code then mirror your phone.

Thanks. Saw all the keyboard shortcuts. I couldn't find an accessible

way to send audio messages, though.
