Subject: [TechTalk] NVDA key not working on laptops

Hello group,

I have installed the most recent NVDA on two laptops running Win 10. I
cannot get the NVDA menu to come up when I hit Caps Lock N. This is the
first time I've encountered this issue. There is a function key on one
laptop, a Dell Latitude. I don't know if this function key is creating this
problem, but my older laptop does not have a function key but has the same
problem.
Is there another way to get into the NVDA menu using a laptop keyboard?

Thanks,
Norma

Does the NVDA key generally not work? when you use it for other things, what happens? As for getting into the menu you can in the system tray. If you need instructions, let us know.

I'll briefly say that opening the system tray, Windows key b, then using first letter navigation to get to NVDA, then pressing the context menu key will open the menu but it is important to know if this is a sign of a much wider problem.

Re: accessible streaming devices apart from apple tv

Hello Chris
Thanks much. Do you know if it uses Android as operating system. Here in
South Africa we have an Android app, DSTVNow, which is the app from the only
subscription based tv company and the app runs on Android so it would be
nice if one would be able to install the app on the Fire stick, or can't one
install apps on it?

Hi All

 

Lately, I’ve noticed a staticky, hissing sound coming from my BrailleNote Touch Pluss. It’s most noticeable when I plug it into my mixer, but even when the mixer isn’t plugged in, it’s still there.

Any advice is much appreciated.

 

Thanks in Advance

Re: Composing New Messages on Gmail Site

Nimer Jaber
 

Hello Abbie,

In the main Gmail site, you can do the following:
  1. Once you are at Gmail, press c to compose. If keyboard shortcuts are not enabled, you can enable them in settings.
  2. Type the first few letters of the individual you wish to email. If they are in your addressbook, or someone you have emailed before, the address will come up. Note that you may have to use up/down arrow keys to select the name.
  3. As soon as the name is announced, or you have selected the correct name, press enter. At this point, you can type in another name, as the one you wanted has been added.
  4. As soon as all names have been entered, press tab. Again, all email addresses you wanted are there. If you wish to view the ones you've added, sometimes going back to the to field will read those, but the most reliable way is to use your screen reader's mouse commands or touch cursor to access the content of the field.

I currently use J 2020 and alt C is for compose. No need to turn off the virtual cursor for the keyboard shortcuts. .

You can also press c to compose. Gmail has many keyboard shortcuts that work great. If they are not enabled, you can enable them in the general settings. If you are using JAWS, you will need to turn off the virtual cursor to use them.

 

Thanks.

When I have done mail from the Gmail site, I go to compose, then start typing in name from contacts; no problems other than the site seems clumsy as all get out to me. I know, I probably am the clumsy one.

Incidentally, I took a little hin from my savvy husband - go to Find and put in Compose, and it brings me right to Compose.

On the gmail site, when I select a contact by checking the appropriate box, then press the Compose button, more often than not, the person's name appears in the To field but not the address. When I try to send the message, I'm told this can't be done because the address is missing. Is there another way to insert someone from contacts as a message recipient, or is there a way I can edit contacts so the address appears in the To field?

Hi Everyone,

The eSight 4 was just released on Tuesday, July 28th. It’s a wearable low vision device – like a wearable CCTV that you wear on your head. Not sure how many people here have low vision, but if you’re interested in learning about it, I did a review on it and show how it works. 😊 https://youtu.be/QiCZc24ufCU
