Re: need a virtual ribben addon for NVDA

Hi Brian

I just read your email and the tutorial you wrote using file explorer. could i add your tutorial to the other one which the other Gene had done. One was for word pad and yours for file eexplorer but will put both on the same page with a jump link. Also will be written who the tutorial is by as well unless you want it left off  if you let me.

It will give the person a idea  more that one might cover the other might not.

Not to take away anything from Gene's tutorial, which is excellent, but just to offer another.  I, like Gene, have been utterly discouraged by the constant complaining about the ribbon interface, a great deal of which is from individuals who have not even spent one full day trying to navigate the ribbons using any tutorial.  They really are menus, but laid out somewhat differently.   They are also not going away, ever, and have largely supplanted the menu structure in many programs, particularly on Windows.

In any case, if you'd like to look at another tutorial, download:   --
