Welcome to NVDA 2018: first two parts completed


 

Ladies and gentlemen,

 

The first two parts of Welcome to NVDA 2018 tutorial series are done:

http://www.josephsl.net/tutorials

 

Look for “Welcome to NVDA 2018” heading. Due to popular demand, each topic is a separate file. I plan to make each tutorial part a single file once production is complete, as well as providing a zip file of all tutorial files.

 

Changes:

  • Restarting NVDA: “Restart with debug logging enabled” is covered.
  • Creating portable copy: the option to start the portable version after creation is covered.
  • Basic keyboard commands: both desktop and laptop layouts are covered with live examples.
  • Battery status command: while demonstrating this command on my laptop, you’ll hear a surprise message.
  • Touchscreen interaction: briefly mentioned the new Touch Interaction settings which is incubating, along with an example.
  • Synthesizer: in part 2 (Basics), you’ll hear Windows OneCore (aka Microsoft Mobile) voices in action, with Microsoft Mark making his first appearance.
  • Formatting announcement: an example of what happens when you press NVDA+F twice quickly is included.
  • NVDA menu: Preferences/Windows 10 OCR is included but the actual dialog won’t be shown.
  • Add-ons preview: as you listen to NVDA menu segment, you’ll hear menu items for the following add-ons: Windows 10 App Essentials, Remote Support, and DictationBridge.
  • Opening the user guide: now done via Microsoft Edge.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Joseph
