Re: NVDA, Facebook and Outlook

You need to look at changing the way pages are laid out then. You can as far as I know configure nvda so links are on different lines if you have no interest in the actual screen layout for the sighted. In a way that only matters if you need to talk to the sighted.

I think I've figured the Facebook issue out. The links for messages and profile are next to each other, not underneath each other.

Latest version of Internet Explorer.

Hi Morne,
I use NVDA extensively on with success. Could you specify the web browser and its version being used at your end while encountering difficulties in accessing your Messages?

Hello NVDA family,

I’m using NVDA with great success. I have 2 questions though.

I’m currently using the mobile site of Facebook on my computer. I find
that my previous screen reader reads more information than nvda on the
mobile site. For example: It is easier with my previous reader to find
the message link, while with NVDA I have to hit enter on a couple of
links in order to get to my messages. Does NVDA work well on the actual Facebook site?

Outlook: I’m using the latest version of Office. Is NVDA capable of
telling you how many unread emails there are? I have folders in
Outlook assigned to specific objects. I have an NVDA folder and
messages related to NVDA goes directly to that folder. With the
previous screen reader I could determine how many unread emails there
are by just arrowing down through the folders.
Is that possible with NVDA?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Kind regards


Best Regards
