I  use the orbit reader 20 display. It works very good and it is only around 600 or $700 from orbit research.

hi George.
thanks for your tips.
suddenly and when I least expected it, everything went back to normal.
don't ask me what happened, because I don't know how to answer.
what happened, i think i'll never know.
it was one of the many other crazy things that happened to me in these good years of computing.
thanks to everyone who tried to help me.
cheers.

Mario,


Part of the trouble you're having is probably caused by NVDA not coming into and going out of focus mode properly on youtube. Here's how I conduct youtube searches. It works well for me.

Goto youtube.com and press the letter e to goto the search edit box.

Press the NVDA key + spacebar to force NvDA into focus mode.

Type your search term and press enter. It sounds like nothing happened, but the search is, in fact, complete.

Press NvDA + spacebar again to leave focus mode.

Press the letter h until you get to the search results heading.

You can then use the up and down arrows to scroll through the results.


Hth,

George

I’ve never used it, but I have read that the orbit braille display isn’t too expensive and I’ve read that it’s a high-quality braille display.

Mike, very easy process. Your person will need to go to the website, go to login, go to email me a login link, go back to their email, after they've put
in their email address and hit submit. Click on the link that they received in their email. Then I wanna go down and click on more, and then don't want
to click on their name, and then go to where it says account, and then go to Weather email address is which will be a text field, and delete the current
address and insert the new one, and then click change email and then confirm by replying to the email that they receive. To the new address. I hope this
works.

JAWS often mixes application keys with JAWS keys when you get help in JAWS and the help doesn't distinguish between the two. Some of the commands may work, some may not. There is an NVDA command to tell you who is speaking, control 2. Why JAWS has its own key, I don't know but maybe it comes from a time when the Zoom command was not available. There is also an NVDA add-on for Zoom.

Here is a page with all the Zoom keyboard commands:
https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/205683899-Hot-Keys-and-Keyboard-Shortcuts-for-Zoom#collapsePC

Hi, if you use Jaws, you will find the following commands absolutely helpful.

To enable or disable alerts, press Alt+Windows+S.

To hear the most recent alert, press Alt+Windows+A.

To be reminded of whether alert announcements are enabled or disabled, press JAWSKey+Tab.

To review the last 10 alerts or messages, press Control+1 through to Control+0. Press twice quickly to virtualise.

To only allow chat messages when pressing Control+1 through to Control+0 press control+F5.

To have Zoom announce who's currently talking, press control+Shift+T.



Functionality has also been added to report:

The state of recording when ALT+R is pressed. This is a keystroke which enables or disables the recording.

Whether the recording has been paused or is resuming when ALT+P is pressed.

Whether the audio has been muted for all participants when ALT+A is pressed.









Best,

Leo Bado.

There is a way to see more results from Youtube or a single site which I'll describe if you want more results. I'd have to either experiment a bit or read about it to make sure I remember the syntax correctly. I almost never use it, though its important to know for occasions when you want to see more results from one site using Google.

Re: changing email adress on groups.io groups?

Hi,

Yes, I just did this on Friday. Do you have a groups.io account? If so, then log in, after you’ve done so you should find a menu, press spacebar to expand the menu and arrow down to account and enter. The first box that pops up should be the one for your email address. Erase the current email address and type in your new one and then enter on the change email button, and a verification email will be sent to your new email, once you confirm your new email then the messages from the groups should start going to your new email address. If you don’t have an account I don’t know if there’s a way to change your email address for all the groups all at once. Hope this helps!!!!

Gene, yes I already tried with the 3 screen readers that I have installed on the pc ..
NVDA, JAWS, and narrator.
none of these work.

and I've also done several restarts.

yes it should be an issue any less than screen readers.
I've done almost everything and nothing works.
this is so strange, because it is an issue in the 4 browsers.
am i being censored?
but if I was being censored, I would also have this issue on my iPhone app
and in the youtube app on the iPhone everything works normally.
no, i don't have any youtube channel.

thanks.
cheers.

If you've tried other screen-readers and still have the problem, it isn't a screen-reader problem.  I don't know what is causing it.

Have you done a restart?  Not a shut down and boot.  A restart will completely reboot the computer.  If you have fast boot enabled, shutting down won't result in a complete restart and problems will occur over time, just as they do if you run your computer too long without a full reboot.
