Hi everyone,

The next installment in Welcome to NVDA 2018 tutorial set is now
available from www.josephsl.net/tutorials
<http://www.josephsl.net/tutorials>. This one (part 5) is a bit
livelier than the last one, as it covers a diverse set of
features, including more than 20 applications, several add-ons,
and couple NVDA features.

Changes from 2015 edition:

* Completely redone and reorganized, including division into
three themes: Microsoft Office, universal apps, and other apps
and tools.
* Microsoft Word: enhancements over the years are showcased,
including elements list, formatting commands, moving to
next/previous spelling errors, spelling error buzzer, and a
brief demonstration of braille input (complete with word echo
(speak typed words, in this case, speak back-translation
results from contracted braille to text).
* Microsoft Excel: cell comments, column/row headers, and a word
on using browse mode to read protected sheets.
* Microsoft Outlook: introduction to calendar and other
facilities besides sending and receiving email, address
auto-completion when composing new messages.
* Microsoft PowerPoint: creating and delivering presentations,
speaker notes.
* Universal apps: mostly first party apps are showcased
(requires Windows 10 App Essentials add-on for some features).
* Microsoft Store: completely revamped interface, keyboard
navigation and object navigation.
* Calculator: the modern version is showcased, including
calculator modes, unit and currency conversions and others.
* Alarms and Clock: running a stopwatch and countdown timer and
how to deal with toast notifications.
* Mail (universal app): basics of this app, including message
composition and a note about navigation issues.
* Skype (universal app): reviewing messages, basic shortcut
keys, and how to answer incoming calls.
* GoldWave: the new Windows Store version is used, along with
looking at track information (GoldWave add-on required for
additional commands).
* StationPlaylist Studio: playlist viewer basics (for enhanced
experience, install StationPlaylist Studio add-on).
* Microsoft Visual Studio: code editor and Intelli-Sense.
* Notepad++: basics and a live example of indentation tones.
* Kindle for PC: reading a sample book and basic features.
* 7-Zip and poedit: overview and 7-Zip File Manager, along with
a brief visit to Poedit.
* Command-line tools: Command Prompt, PowerShell, Windows
Subsystem for Linux/Bash along with a review of review cursor
basics.

You may notice different audio qualities for some segments, but
overall, it is much better than the 2015 edition. Comments are
appreciated.

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph
