regarding NVDA configurationsprifles

Cristina Ebetiuc
 

Hi

How can I set an NVDA profile to tell all formatings of a text like a underlined, bold, etc. Whenever I activeate the formatings they are activated for the whole NVDA and not for the profile only.

My recollection is that It isn't bottom posting. A short excerpt of the message is included, the specific part being responded to. My recollection is that most of the previous message isn't included. I haven't thought aabout this much but that is my recollection..

As others have already noted, the actual answer to this would depend entirely on the behavior of the attendees. In theory you could keep everyone unmuted and be fine; in practice this virtually never works, simply because there is so much opportunity for interruption due to ambient noise that can occur at random at any single or multiple participants' end.
That's why it's become pretty much standard practice for meeting organizers to set things up such that any attendee joins muted by default, and can unmute/mute themselves as necessary. It's not like there's much of a trick to toggling the mute in any one of the online meeting platforms. And, of course, if there are several participants involved in a true "back and forth" those participants would remain unmuted until that exchange is complete.

Re: Linux groups for the blind

Damien Garwood
 

Hi,
To be fair, I have been thinking of setting up a Linux list, but given that I've, A, only used Ubuntu, B, only used it via SSH, and C, still have a lot of unanswered questions myself, I can hardly call myself an expert by any stretch of the imagination.
Put it this way. If my server has been attacked in its wild three year existence (and I will be very surprised if it hasn't), then it doesn't show.
Cheers,
Damien.

Re: What are we missing access to in Zoom?

Steve Matzura
 

Settings are available and accessible. When not in a meeting, the Settings and Help options appear in a pull-down menu under your name. When in a meeting, there's a button labeled Settings. Where the Help button is on that screen I don't remember, but I know there is one.


What I have problems with are things like muting and unmuting my meeting's participants, and lowering hands when raised. I press ENTER or the space bar on the buttons, and often nothing happens.

around to, but I've tried all sorts of navigation methods and one or two
keyboard commands and I can't see, as far as I can tell, anything in the
right pane.  the right pane may include a settings opttion, a help option,

What are we missing and is it important enough to contact the Zoom

If you mean that the host has to have his video on, that mayn be. But it
isn't clear what you meanor what you were told. The command is available to
phone users so if what you were told means anything, it must mean that the
host must be connected visually. I don't know if hosts can connect without
using a visual connection but I would think it would be rare, if it can be
done.

We don't know why. As I said, what sense does it make for a company to
design a system where phone users are at a disadvantage? There are,
doubtless, a lot of people who join meetings by phone for various reasons.
Also, there is a raise the hand command that you can do by phone. It is my
understanding that if a host mutes the whole room, you can unmute yourself
and talk. However, perhaps there is a way that the host can mute everyone
where he has to recognize anyone who wishes to speak, requiring that a hand
be raised.
Perhaps we will get more information.

I'm not sure what would happen if too many people tried to talk at once.
The best thing to do might be to mute everyone, you can do that as the host,
then have people unmute themselves to talk and mute themselves after they
do. I haven't used this feature, but pressing and holding the space bar is
supposed to unmute someone when they are muted and then releasing it would
mute them again. So people shouldn't have to keep unmuting and muting
themselves, just press the space bar to talk.

That depends on what distribution you're using. Most blind folk favor Debian or Ubuntu.

Hi all,

Then how come I have been raising my hand in Zoom meetings for over two years now, and I don't have a camera? Whenever I do use alt-y, I get called upon in my turn and when asked to do so, I unmute myself. Whomever this is hasn't used Zoom, doesn't know which end is up, to use the polite expression, and should do a bit of actual experiencing of Zoom conferencing before he or she dares to say anything else about the application! <grrrrr>

Hi all,

Sometimes a host will take charge of muting and unmuting, and the unmuting process is a double task. First the host has to unmute you, then you have to unmute yourself. It depends on which version of Zoom you're using.

Re: Introduction and Firefox question

David Goldfield
 

Hi. Asking for addon recommendations is almost like asking someone to recommend software for your computer. We can do it but you should think about what you'd like your browser to do for you that it doesn't already do. Having said that I can appreciate that you might not know what capabilities addons can offer and perhaps you just want to see what others are finding to be useful.

First, you should visit the Firefox Addons site, which is the official library for all Firefox addons.

This will give you a sense of what's out there.

I'm no longer a Firefox user as I prefer Brave and other Chromium-based browsers, for reasons that are irrelevant to this message. When I did use Firefox I used an addon called Rumola to assist in solving visual captchas. Unfortunately, this addon stopped working when Firefox switched to Quantum with version 57 and the developers never updated the addon. I also used Adblockplus to block ads and I now use the Chromium version of that addon for Brave. I also used addons to enable reader mode for some Web sites but Firefox now has this as a built-in option. If my memory is correct I think the F9 key enables this mode (for pages which support it.)

Subject: [TechTalk] Introduction and Firefox question


Hello, mailing list members.

My name is Ahmed Ibrahim. I am from Sudan. I am totally blind person.

Technologically I'm using laptop to Sheba, running Windows 10 1909. With NVDA 22 as my primary screen reader.

Also I'm using Firefox latest version 79 and something. My question is: I want you to recommend me your favourite and useful Firefox add-ons. For example advertise blocking extension, loading and downloading notification sounds, and other more recommended Firefox add-ons, that make browsing the Internet with Firefox, more easier and enjoyable. thank in advance

Hi. I recommend you join this mailing list.

program-l@...

There is a bunch of Linux users in there and they are a helpful bunch. Also, you might have some Linux programming related course in your sylabus, and we will help you all we can. If you want, you could join a Ubuntu related list that may exist. Just google for it since there are quite a few blind Ubuntu users. I used to be a member of a blind general Linux list but i'm not sure if it still exists. HTH a bit. Cheers!

Hi guys,
I was wondering if anyone knew if there were any Lennix email groups for the blind? I am taking a Linux course through my college this semester and was wondering what parts of Lenix might be assessable to me.
Thanks,
