Hi, Monty. The keystrokes are Windows keystrokes, not screen reader keystrokes.

Hi Valiant,

Are the key combos you mention below, windows keystrokes, or screenreader keys?

Hi.


You can also set these views using ctrl+shift+1 through 8 or so, 6 I believe is the one for details which is what File Explorer uses by default.

Get into Windows Explorer with WINDOWS+E

Make sure nothing is selected

Go into the context menu with either the applications key or SHIFT+F10

Now, select the View option in that menu.

In this level of menus, you'll see the different ways you can view your files. I'd suggest either list or details to get what you want.

That should do what you want. If this doesn't stick for other folders, let me know and I'll let you know how to get a view to be set for all folders.

Have a blessed day and don't work too hard.

I noticed for some reason when I am reviewing file names in file exploer to navigate the list in a folder I have to use the left and right arrow keys instead of the up and down arrow keys I am use too. I did not change anything in win10 on my laptop for this to happen. How can i get it to return to the down and up arrow keys to view file names once again?

Hi, Leonard.

 

To Change Folders To Details View Globally

 

1. Open OS drive.

2. Deselect everything with CONTROL plus SPACE.

3. Press Applications key or SHIFT plus F10.

4. Arrow down to View submenu, and press ENTER.

5. Arrow down to Details, and make sure it is checked. If not checked, press ENTER to check.

Re: file explorer

Mike B.
 


Your View menu has changed, how ever it changed.  Below are 2 ways of changing the view menu to list view:
 
Changing the view menu with keystrokes:
Here is a list of the shortcut keys for changing the type of view:
 
CTRL + SHIFT + 1 Extra Large icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 2 Large Icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 3 Medium Icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 4 Small Icons,
CTRL + SHIFT + 5 List view,
CTRL + SHIFT + 6 Details view,
CTRL + SHIFT + 7 Tiles view,
CTRL + SHIFT + 8 Content view.
 
Changing the view menu using the context menu:
First make sure that your folder window is maximized.
Windows key + up arrow, or Alt +spacebar, let up then press the letter, X.
1. While in a folder make sure nothing is highlighted / selected and open the context menu by pressing the applications key or Shift + F10.
 
2. You should be on, submenue View, press enter, down arrow to, List, press enter.
 
3. Again make sure nothing is selected, open the context menu, down arrow to, submenue Sort By, press enter and if Name is checked press Escape, but if
you make achange press enter on the option you want which will close the context menu while saving the change you made.  Also in this SortBy submenu you want Ascending checked.  This makes the files / folders show A to Z, descending makes files / folders show, Z to A.
 
4. If you didn't make any changes in the, submenue Sort By, and pressed Escape just down arrow to, submenue Group By and press enter, now find, None, and
press enter.  If you made a change in, submenue Sort By, you'll need to open the context menue again, and do the same as in the first part of this step.
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

I use Leasey by HARTGEN CONSULTANCY which expands Jaws scripts. Sometimes when I use their keystroke to shutdown windows it will play a sound. However, it does not happen all the time. Has anyone else using Leasey experienced a windows shutdown sound?

Preliminary screen reader advisories for Windows 21H2 releases #ADVISORY #win11 #WinTen21H2

 
Edited

Hi all,

As promised, the following is a preliminary screen reader advisories for Windows 21H2 releases:

  • Windows 10 21H2 (build 19044)
  • Windows 11 (build 22000)

 

IMPORTANT: Windows 11 is in preview, therefore information can change without notice.

 

For Windows 10 21H2 (build 19044):

As an enablement package (delivered in the form of a cumulative update), screen readers compatible with Windows 10 21H1 (May 2021 Update) will work. For best experience, use a screen reader release compatible with Edge 85 or later. The following are recommended screen reader releases:

  • Narrator: built into Windows
  • JAWS: 2020 or later
  • NVDA: 2020.3 or later
  • Any screen reader compatible with at least May 2021 Update, or if not met, at least with October 2020 Update


Note: not all features are being tested by Windows Insiders - future updates will enable additional features.

For Windows 11 (build 22000):

Screen readers must be updated to support Windows 11 specific changes. These changes include updated Start menu and Taskbar design, Notification Center (Windows+N) and Control Center (Windows+A), Widgets (Windows+W), the new emoji panel (Windows+period), Settings app (Windows+I), design changes to system tray (Windows+B) and other UI tweaks. Apart from Narrator, current screen reader releases are not yet optimized for Windows 11, and in some cases, things will not work.

 

Issues include:

  • JAWS: cannot use emoji panel and clipboard history.
  • NVDA: screen curtain will not work.

 

The good news is that screen reader vendors (Microsoft, Vispero, NV Access) are aware of Windows 11 changes and are working on addressing screen reader specific issues.

 

Screen reader requirements:

  • Narrator: built into Windows
  • JAWS: 64-bit releases are required, with Vispero noting that JAWS 2022 will include support for Windows 11
  • NVDA: upcoming 2021.2 includes foundations to support Windows 11
  • Other screen readers: depends on notices from vendors

 

Recent Windows 11changes that will affect screen reader users:

  • Settings (Windows+I): more label issues were corrected.
  • Windows+C no longer summons Cortana – replaced by opening a “chat” window, a portal to Microsoft Teams (preview at the moment).
  • In some cases, an unknown “pane” window gets focused when switching between apps. Microsoft is aware of this and is testing a potential fix.
  • When opening emoji panel, focus moves to emoji search field. At least in Narrator (and in NVDA with a specific add-on installed), you can use arrow keys to move between emojis. You must tab to “see more emoji” to view other emojis.
  • Quick menu )Windows+X) shortcut keys are working again.
  • You cannot set default apps by activity such as web browsing – you can set defaults on a per-app basis and for specific file type and/or protocol handlers.
  • File Explorer: ribbon is replaced by a toolbar.
  • Others to be discovered.

 

A few reminders:

  • The above is preliminary information. Advisories from screen reader vendors override notices from this forum.
  • Although some folks are pointing to October as release month for Windows 10 21H2 and 11, things can change without notice. What is certain is that Windows 10 devices that are actually eligible for Windows 11 (recent multi-core 64-bit processors from Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm, at least 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB disk space, UEFI+Secure Boot+TPM 2.0 hardware/firmware settings, additional requirements for features such as chat functionality) will be offered a free upgrade to Windows 11, and Windows 10 will be supported until October 2025.
  • Windows 10 feature updates are released twice a year and are supported for at least 18 months, whereas Windows 11 feature updates will be released annually and will be supported for at least two years. This is consumer support – enterprises will receive one year of additional updates for Windows 10 fall releases and for every Windows 11 feature update. This is subject to change as time goes on.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Stopping from Updating to Windows11

Mike B.
 

Hi all,
 
Here's information I've found so far about this:
 
 
How to block the Windows 11 update
by Martin Brinkmann
 on July 06, 2021 in Windows 11
Microsoft's Windows 11 operating system will be released later this year and systems that are compatible with the new version of Windows may be upgraded
to it free of charge. Administrators have a choice when it comes to the Windows 11 update: keep a device on Windows 10, which is supported until 2025,
or update to the new operating system.
 
Microsoft revealed that Windows 11 won't be pushed forcefully to systems running Windows 10 via Windows Update. Administrators need to seek for the update
actively using Windows Updates. Whether the process is going to change in the future remains to be seen. Microsoft did tighten the screws back when it
released Windows 10 as an optional update. It is possible that Windows 11 will be pushed more aggressively the closer Windows 10's end of service date
approaches.
 
The easy way
 
The easiest option, for now at least, is to avoid the "check for updates" button in Settings > Update & Security. If you don't activate the button, Windows
11 won't be offered via Windows Updates.
 
The option may be temporary, but it should work for the foreseeable future.
 
Blocking the Windows 11 update
 
Blocking the update is not as straightforward as blocking feature updates for Windows 10. Up to Windows 10 version 21H1, there is only an option to delay
feature update installations. Problem is: if you activate the option using the Group Policy Editor or Windows Registry, you will also block the upcoming
Windows 10 version 21H2 update.
 
If you don't mind delaying the installation, which may help avoid any bugs and issues discovered in first couple of months, then this works right now.
 
Using the Group Policy Editor
 
select the target feature update version
 
The Group Policy Editor is only available in Professional, Education and Enterprise editions of Windows 10.
 
list of 7 items
1. Open the Start Menu.
2. Type gpedit.msc and load the Group Policy Editor once it is displayed in the search results.
3. Go to Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Update > Windows Update for Business
4. Double-click on "Select the target feature update version".
5. Set the policy to Enabled.
6. Type 21H1 into the field.
7. Close the Group Policy Editor.
list end
 
Note: You may switch to 21H2 once it is added to the release information page on
Microsoft's Docs website.
You may also wait a couple of months as Windows 11's release is months away.
 
Using the Registry
 
registry windows update
list of 6 items
1. Open the Start Menu.
2. Type regedit.exe and select the Registry Editor search result.

Subject: [WinAccess] Stopping from Updating to Windows11

Hi All,
 
Will it be possible to permanently stop a Windows 10 computer from updating to Windows 11?  My wife's laptop is the only one of our computers that is capable of updating to Windows 11, and I don't want hers to update until I get a chance to get a Windows 11 computer for myself.  Thanks mooy moocho.

Hi again Monte:

 

You might be surprised as to how similar the various screen readers are. Narrator uses the same inter net navigation keys that Jaws and NVdA do for the most part.

X for check box, C for combo box, e for edit field, b for button, r for radio button.

H and shift H will move you through headings. Insert f7 will list links, insert f6 will list headings.

Check out the Hadley tutorials, browse the narrator guide and you’ll be cooking with gas.

 

Cheers.

Hi Nimer,

 

I should mention that I am using win10 20h2 with nvda 2021.1, current chrome and sometimes, current edge.

I am sure  my 5 year old hp desktop will update  to the current version  of win10  when the electrons are properly aligned.

Now, I am most interested in web pate,  navigation including tables, check boxes, spin boxes, items, links, etc..

Hi List,

 

I  want to learn the basics of narrator in win 10.

I found some  info  at the m s website, but it is all text based.

So, it is audio tutorials I am looking for.

Thanks for all help.

Re: Edge and favorites

Leonard,

You have an other search option in the ctrl-shift-o screen as Sieghart
wrote

An other option and letternavigation is possible here, is:
Turn on the favorites bar with ctrl-shift-b

When you want to open a favorite, press alt-shift-b to go to the
favorites bar.
Here you can only left/right arrow and enter to open a favorite, but if
you have favorites in a folder, you can press down arrow to open that
folder and use first letter navigation in that window.

When using Microsoft edge is there a procedure for letter navigation after pressing ctrl shift O? I have a lot of favourites and it is frustrating to have to arrow down to locate a specific favourites site.
