Re: Use of ASCII codes
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I upgraded to NVDA 2021.1 and suddenly I find that I can no longer use the ASCII codes, as I used to do. I’m talking, eg, ALT+130 (to type Acute E, etc.
I haven’t updated the version of Word I’m using, it still is Word 2016.
Is there a remedy to rectify this problem, or any other way to create these codes?

Thanks for highlighting these! The good news (for me), the first one is where I must have rewritten the paragraph and then inadvertently left both copies in. The second was where I had simply repeated a sentence - and the rest are changes Microsoft have made to their ribbon structure.
In each of those cases, the keystroke changing is caused by Microsoft moving the option into a submenu, so it it on the same ribbon but you need to add 0, then 0:
To toggle the BCC field, press alt+p, 0, 0, b
To add reccurance to a calendar event, with the event open, you now need to press alt+h, 0, 0, e.
To add a new calendar, you now need to press alt+h, 0, 0, a, o (as well as being in that 0 0 menu, it is in an "add / share" submenu as well, as is b" for new blank calendar).
The recurrence change is the one I really disagree with - while you shouldn't need to add calendars too often, or toggle the BCC field, you often need to add or edit recurrance to a calender event. If anyone else feels the same way, the best I can suggest is petitioning Microsoft to make it easier to get to.
I'll update the module in the shop, once I've edit it a bit more - and if you find any other issues through the remainder of the module, please do let me know!
