Re: APA Style and NVDA

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi Kathleen,

when I needed to use APA style for the citations and for the
references section of my Masters assignments, I changed the
Punctuation / symbol level to All in the speech settings, and turned
Font Attributes on in the Document Formatting section.

However, I agree that it can be information overload! What I did was
to set up a profile called Formatting where those are the settings.
Then my normal configuration didn't have that level of detail but I
could turn the Formatting profile on when I did need it.

I guess that, if it's too much information even doing it that way,
then your best option would be to turn the Font Attributes on because
you'll need those to make sure that whatever needs to be bold or
itallic is bold or itallic, and then read each reference character by
character so you can hear if there are dashes and commas in the
correct places without having the Punctuation / symbol level set to
All.

A third option that might work for you is simply not to worry about
the bold and itallic aspects until you have finished the References
page. Then go through it line by line, selecting the text where it
needs to be bold or italic, and using the CTRL+b to make it bold, or
CTRL+i to make it itallic. Since NVDA says "Bold on" or "Bold off" and
"Italics on" or "Italics off", you can spend an editting session just
applying the correct formatting.

I did tell my course director that it was difficult for me, not being
able to see the formatting, and I think she told all of the tutors to
not mark me down if I didn't do the referencing section quite right :)

Re: APA Style and NVDA

 

Kathleen,

         Since this is a question that's directly related to NVDA, how to use it, and it's settings I'm suggesting you ask this on the main NVDA group, as it's far more likely to get an answer, or multiple answers there.

Issues: Windows 10 laptop

David Russell
 

Hello NVDA Chat,

In an effort to be concise, I will bullet my issues with a
newlypurchased win-10 computer.
- Keyboard sensitivity causing some words and extra spaces to occur
sporadically.

- How to log into a work website when certain criteria are not
recognized by pressing enter key or spacebar on the appropriate box?

- Where can blind persons in the US turn for low cost remote computer support?

I cannot designate whether I am an author or client as is required. I
now hear something about 'before insert point.'
Previously, on my former computer, the enter key satisfied this requirement.

Thanks in advance for your time and input.

All that means is your going to get a nag screen telling you its not active.

Still don't solve the problem.

Try looking at your startup options and see if something is starting up or not..

Re: pushy notepad

 

I can't explain this, but want to make you aware of another issue.  You cannot "just transplant" a system disk from one machine into another and have Windows 10 legally licensed and activated on that "other machine."

Windows 10 licenses and activation are tied directly to the motherboard in a computer, so it is very likely that your instance of Windows 10 will be no longer validly activated.  You'd have to check Settings, Update & Security, Activation Pane to see what it says.

Brian Tew
 

Hi,
My win ten pc got zapped by lightning, or maybe is was squirrels according to the power company.
Anyway the hard disk is fine, so I got a local tech to switch the disk into another pc of same model.
Everything works fine but after each startup it opens a notepad session editing desktop.ini.
How do I stop this? Where is the file that says what happens during startup?
Any ideas or info appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks, I’ll give that a try. Yes, QWS is still very much alive.

You might look in the sound volume mixer, and find out if the QWS volume is set low. A few ways you can get there; one is to press Windows+R and type sndvol, then press enter.

That said, wasn't QWS discontinued a long time ago? I used to use it under Windows 98, but even when I switched to Vista I vaguely remember having a hard time finding a current version.

I don’t use the program and I’m not saying this is the case, but I wonder if they are even available any longer.  Perhaps uninstalling and reinstalling the program would restore them.

You either need to scan the QR code from the Windows computer or your emergency PDF, or you need to enter in the sign-in address, email, secret key, and password. The sign-in address is usually my.1password.com but this depends on where you've stored your vault.
