Subject: Re: Designing an Accessible User Interface


I'm actually talking about making something like an accessible version of Atmosphere Deluxe. Originally, the program, made by Vectormedia Software, was created with Visual Basic 6.0. Unfortunately, they made a lot of the controls so that JAWS speaks them identically (JAWS says "Graphic 0"), despite the fact that some are buttons, and some are sliders. It recognizes the checkboxes just right. Also, the colors are mostly "Black on Black", so I can't tell where I'm pointing to, as the company didn't exactly design it with screenreader compatibility in mind. You can download and test Atmosphere Deluxe here: http://www.vectormediasoftware.com/atmdeluxedown.htm. The next email I'm sending is one that Vectormedia Software sent me back in May of 2010, when I first asked them about accessibility. This is what inspired me to perhaps partner with them to redesign their interface from scratch.

Hi, how are you?  What are you trying to do in terms of the subject.  Are you trying to create an accessible patch editor or is it something else?  From what you are trying to describe it sounds like you want to create an interface that will allow you to load and save patches as well as having the ability to adjust volume controls for each of the patches.  This is what I understand But is there something else that i'm not understanding.  When you say slots are you talking memory slots or are you talking about creating a template of 16 tracks of midi and or audio with the different volume controls as well as velocity controls.

Subject: Designing an Accessible User Interface

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I'm not sure how to put this, so for now, I'll just make it short and sweet. I want to design a user interface that is accessible to both sighted and blind folks alike, and I'm wondering, what is the perfect way to design the controls so they look like those found on the browser of the Windows Operating System? Also, how do you change colors for foreground and background so they'll be recognized when the button or control is navigated to by either the PC Cursor or the JAWS cursor, then press JAWSKey+5? For example, I want to make a button that is "Light Sky Blue" on "Forest Green". How would I program those parameters? Is there a way to make the program in a plain text editor like Notepad? Specifically, I'm making a program where you can toggle sounds by checking/unchecking checkboxes, and load them by pressing "Open" buttons in each slot. You can then adjust the Volume, Volume Range, Rate Of Change, and L/R Balance with sliders. There'll be left-right sliders for the "L/R Balance" slots, and Up/Down Sliders for the "Volume", "Volume Range", and "Rate Of Change" slots. I'm also wanting to put other common controls like Radio Buttons, "Open" dialogs, Listboxes, Dials, and other user-friendly controls.

Jerry Berrier <jerry.berrier@...>
 

You have to be on the very top line of the table to use it.

It’s the line that says how many columns and rows there are in the table.

So if you hit t for table, you should be in the right place.

I just tried it with Chrome running Windows 7. On one table it worked fine, but on a different one I could not get it to copy to the clipboard.  No idea why.

Hello Groups,


My financial web site has important information in a table with 5 columns and 30 rows. This would fit on a single page if I could print only the table. I would like to select, copy and paste it into Word and then print it, with the columns and rows preserved.

The Web page has a “Print Page” button but it prints all of the 4 pages. 

 

I know that Jaws uses the virtual cursor in order to simplify readability. This means that each column item is on a separate line.

 

I have tried these 2 Quick Setting options (for Firefox 52ESR):

  Select and copy from the virtual cursor

and

  Select and copy full content using onscreen highlight

 

Using both settings, I have selected from the beginning of the table, using shift plus down-arrow, to select 30 rows, and then copying to the clipboard. 30 is not enough for the whole table but just enough for sample purposes.

 

Pasting the clipboard into Word results in each column entry on a separate line.

 

Is there a way to select and copy only the table and have it appear in Word as a multi column table?

If this is possible, then Word would probably print it in a table structure.

Is there another way without using Word? 

 

Thanks,

 

Peter T.

Mario,

          That is correct, and if your Windows 10 system is set up "as per usual" they should immediately open the MS Feedback Hub, as this is the only way to view the content.

          That message most often comes up if you have a default web browser other than Edge and there's typically something that shows up along with it (but whether it ever becomes visible to the screen reader or not I cannot say) that allows you to say that if you receive a link of this type it should open in Feedback Hub.  I have Chrome set as my default web browser and had to do that.  Those links will open a tab in Chrome but then Chrome "hands off" to Feedback Hub and it opens to the piece of feedback that the link points to.

Mario,

            You're quite welcome.   My partner's laptop, which is the
"hardware twin" of the one I'm typing on, just updated to Version 1803,
latest build, from Version 1709 over this past weekend.   His, too,
takes the windowed screenshot via WinKey + ALT + PrtSc and it's somehow
run through the Xbox part of Windows 10 to place the screenshot in the
Videos\Captures folder.  What's interesting is that you get auditory
feedback when the notification comes up that the screenshot has been
captured and saved when you use this method.

            When you use WinKey + PrtSc to do a whole screen capture,
there is no auditory feedback.  The screen itself does a momentary
dimming when the screenshot is taken and placed in the
Pictures\Screenshots folder.   That's perfectly fine for those of us
that can see it, and I have yet to see WinKey + PrtSc fail to work, but
you have to trust that it did and just go check what you got in
Pictures\Screenshots afterward.

             I have filed feedback with Microsoft about both the odd
placement of a windowed screenshot and the fact that the full screen
screenshot mechanism does not give auditory feedback, which is an
accessibility issue.   If anyone wishes to review either piece of
feedback, or upvote same, here are the links:

        Windows Key + Prt Sc does not provide auditory feedback - MS

Zoom accessibility is first-rate. They can send you the meeting URL, or even create a small, and I really do mean small, application which can sit on your Desktop, and when clicked on, will immediately/instantly connect you to their meeting.

that the window in question was somehow not what was showing "front an

On my computer, as of one of the latest version 1803 cumulative updates,
WinKey + ALT + PrtSC is taking a snapshot of the Window with focus and
placing it, very oddly, in Videos\Captures and assigning it the name of
the window title using PNG format.  I have been told that this behavior,
when it occurs, has been consistent so far but what's inconsistent is
whether it occurs at all.  I am hoping that this gets fixed, since a
screenshot is an image, not a video, but it's still handy once you know
where the thing actually ends up.

The old PrtSc key hit to take a full screen screenshot and place it on
the clipboard, and ALT + PrtSc to take a windowed screenshot and place
it on the clipboard, have remained completely unchanged in Windows 10. 
But you then have to open some image manipulation program, and I
typically use good, old-fashioned Paint, and paste from the clipboard
and save the resulting image file in the format of your choosing. 
That's always been the case using this method, too.

Its alt+Print screen to take a snapshot of the currently focused window

moderated Re: importing favorites from firefox to chrome

 

Presuming the Favorites plugin is what its name implies, which would make Firefox look to the MS Favorites rather than its own bookmarks, then you can most likely tell Chrome to import from IE when you install, as it has no idea how Favorites got created, but can import from same with ease.

Personally I don't find Firefox Bookmarks to be all that terrible if you get used to keeping the Bookmarks Manager open in its own window which, oddly enough will be entitled "Library," and use that.

Of course, since every browser out there now remembers both the browser page title along with the URL, you can very often get where you're going by just entering part of either the page title or the URL and then down arrowing through the options presented below the address box.  That's often far faster than hunting through Bookmarks in any browser.

moderated Re: Taking a snapshot of an open program

 

WinKey + PrtSc takes a full screen screenshot and places it in the Pictures\Screenshots folder.  It will take the screenshot of whatever arrangement is active on the screen at the time.  If you want a specific program to be "front and center" then make sure you've placed focus on it via ALT+TAB and, possibly, maximized it if necessary.
