Remember that an NVDA Add-On is the functional equivalent of a JAWS script.

NVDA itself does not support this natively, it's an add-on that does.  That's not hair splitting, either.  Were someone to wish to create a JAWS script for this function, they could.

It appears that someone has, but it's not free, as Hartgen includes Weather as part of its J-Say script, but J-Say goes well beyond just that functionality.

It is the function of creative men to perceive the relations between thoughts, or things, or forms of expression that may seem utterly different, and to be able to combine them into some new forms--the power to connect the seemingly unconnected.

Hi, Rick. I have had a similar problem with an "OK" button on Google Voice. This is what I did to invoke the "OK" button.

1. Check the check box next to the address you want to delete as you did before.

2. Find the "OK" button.

3. Route the PC Cursor to the JAWS Cursor with either JAWS key plus the plus key on the NumPad, or with CAPSLOCK plus the apostrophe key when JAWS is in Laptop Keyboard Mode.

4. Press ENTER after performing step 3.

5. Refresh the screen as Mike B suggested with JAWS key plus ESCAPE.

6. Check to see if the address has been deleted.

 

Please let us know if either Mike B's suggestion or my suggestion was successful in allowing you to delete the address.

Dear Listers:

 

Are any of you familiar with the Blue Mountain e-card service?  It has e-cards for birthdays, anniversaries, etc.  It also has an addressbook where you can store all your contacts.  My problem is deleting a contact from the addressbook.  The directions say that if you want to delete someone, check the contact and then hit the Delete button at the top of the page.  I have multiple addresses for one contact and I am trying to delete one of them.  When I check the box next to the address I want to delete there appears a notice to delete selected.  I hit the Enter key and a dialog pops up.  At the very bottom of the page there is an OK button.  I hit the Enter key on it but the address I want to delete will not go away.  If any of you out there have used Blue Mountain, can you give me some help and advice.

I've never used Blue Mountain, but if you're using one of the chromium browsers, refresh the screen after clicking the appropriate buttons to see if that helps.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

I just stumbled across this weather add on for nvda. I also run
window-eyes and liked their weather script. This weather plus

I got it here.

I'm not sure about that Bill. I made a test HTML page with just a link to a second page and it's seems just as chatty.

Hi, Mark. It usually has to do with bad programming of the web page. The extra verbiage is usually voicing code from images on the web page.

With some webpages, when I click a link and the new page is loaded, JAWS is quite chatty. In some cases, some of the HTML context from the source page is spoken.  I've tried lowering web verbosity and regular verbosity levels, but it doesn't do anything. Does anyone know why?

For example, on this culture, history, and sport page from the government of Canada, I press enter on the History and heritage link, the title of the current window is spoken, then the heading and link, then the destination page twice. Here's the speech history

Culture, history and sport - Canada.ca

I've seen occasions where someone accidentally activated one of the other columns, say Date modified, and had no idea why their sort order in the name column looked like nothing they've ever encountered before.  Some go through life aimlessly, have no idea where they are going most of the time and how they got there. One of my family members is like that.  She drives like that and surfs the internet the same way, creating problems for herself and having no idea what she did to create them because she did not know what she did.  .

Just a quick note should someone find themselves in the situation.  Each column in file explorer if you're using list or details view is a split button, and you can sort by any single column in either ascending or descending order.  It's the main part of the split button, not the split part, that toggles sort order back and forth

I've seen occasions where someone accidentally activated one of the other columns, say Date modified, and had no idea why their sort order in the name column looked like nothing they've ever encountered before.

If something like that does occur, just gain focus on the left half of the split button for the column on which you want your files sorted and activate it.  You may have to do that twice if the initial sort order is reversed from what you actually wanted.
