Someone was saying skype 8's a mess, what did they do with it?
Original message:

Yeah, a lot of things like the new skype has a lot of clickable repeated
I do think we have this adjusted with sound.
Ie if something is text and is clickable a single sound or sound group
should be played, it then shouldn't matter how many times it says
clickable as long as it can be clicked.

Its a catch 22 though since we got these clickable items. You need to
have a noise really, but its easy to miss that.

Hello Clare

Thank you. I shall give your suggestion a go since I too dislike hearing
line number announcements constantly.
It was the same as hearing 'Clickable' continually when browsing the
Then I discovered through Document formatting how to disable this

Take care and thank you once again.

I'm glad to hear that you like NVDA, Philip, but I'm sorry you have
problems with it.
I can't answer most of your questions, but I can say that, as far as
I know,
there are no special add-ons for Microsoft Office. I use Office 2007
specifically Word, Excel and Outlook: the latter crashes sometimes
for me,
but otherwise it works well, and the only view change I made in Outlook
after installing it was to have the newest emails at the bottom which I
prefer. I also found that disabling the reading of tables works
better for
me in emails, as the body of some emails comes up as tables and I
don't want
to hear row and column numbers all the time while reading the text:
my choice, though, and you may feel differently about that.
I hope other people can answer your other questions!
Bye for now!
From Clare

Hi All

I am new to this group and wish to thank you for kindly accepting my
membership. I am very much looking forward to meeting you and hearing
NVDA experiences.

I am really enjoying using NVDA. It is a fabulous alternative to JAWS.
However, I have a few questions and wondered if you can help.

Please forgive me in advance if I have included two many questions in
email. I'm thinking most of them might simply be a case of settings;
he says
holding his breath... J

Please advise if you would rather I created a separate thread for each
question. Here goes...
Operating System: Windows 7 Home
MS Office 2007

Q1. Are there any NVDA add ons for MS Office 2007?

I have searched, but cannot seem to find any.

In addition, what's the best configuration settings for viewing MS
2007 Outlook messages in table view, only I am finding response time
terribly slow and crashes and programme closures frequent?
I have tried enabling 'tables' in 'settings' and selecting anything else
seemingly likely to resolve the problem, but without joy.

Furthermore, I am presently encountering problems sending and
replying to
messages. I am having to launch the 'new message or 'reply' options
before I can write anything that NVDA will read back to me in all edit
fields from 'address, subject and body.'

* Attempt 1 merely keeps saying 'blank' whenever I type into the fields,
then freezes and I am forced to exit and try again.

* Works perfectly second time round.

NVDA, Google Chrome & Ebay

Q3. Similarly, I am experiencing one or two issues revising my Ebay
listings. While I am able to edit 'Product Title' and 'General Item
Specifics', there seems to be compatibility issues when it comes to
'Price' & 'Quantities' in listings with multiple variations when
'drag and
drop' is required. What do you recommend?

Q4. In Paypal, while I can generally find work arounds for most things,
accessing the buttons in 'packing slips' is a problem.

A Packing slip is a consignment note businesses can print off and
include in
with their products they are sending out to their customers.
To access 'Packing Slips':
* first select 'Summary'
* arrow down to payments received
* select recipient and press enter
* search for 'print packing slip' and press enter.

Here you should see three buttons:

* Button 1 allows you to 'print the slip
* button 2, edit your personalised customer message
& * button 3, Done.

NVDA recognises and echos the associated text for these buttons, but
refuses to display them as clickable options.

Q5. What possibly could be the underlining reason why NVDA's general key
stroke optionsĀ  keeps malfunctioning on my machine, leaving me with
speech recognition and no means of restarting the programme using the
standard shortcut option other than a 'hard system boot?'

Thank you in anticipation for your help in this regard.
