Re: NVDA, Facebook and Outlook

No Angela, I don't take it personal at all. When it comes to figuring out a peace of music, then I'm totally fine. But with computers and technical stuff I tend to make a total mess.

Take care.

You can go to nvda settings and choose not to use screen layout and I think that should solve the problem.

One question: did you spend ten minutes exploring nvda settings? I do not think so by your question because one who knows nothing like me has understood it just exploring...

Best and remember to explore the screen reader you are using.

P.S Do not take it as personal because I don't know you at all, it is just a suggestion, humble opinion. We want tech support, but we also must be able to help ourselves by exploring things on our own.

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

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
