Re: NVDA and slack

It's worth noting that the tutorial document is a very sufficient resource that did in fact solve my problem.

Do you know how to turhn automatic language switching off? Open the speech settings, NVDA+control+v.  Tab around and uncheck automatic language switching with the space bar and uncheck automatic dialect switching.  Activate the space bar.

If you want these settings reversed, once finished on the page, use the command NVDA+control+r.  You should hear configuration applied and the changes will be reversed.

Brian: I wasn't clear enough with my problem. For some reason, when I went to the archive topic you directed me to, NVDA's language detection immediately switched to another language. Anyway, I will attempt to look this up to see if I get different results when browsing NVDA group archives. Thanks

I have no idea what you're asking, as the link I gave, Slack for Windows Accessibility, is an NVDA Group Archive topic conducted entirely in English.  The resource that member Sylvie Duchateau posted, Use slack with a screen reader, is also entirely in English.

If you do not know how to browse the NVDA Group Archive, please read my tutorial, Browsing a Topics Page/Archive.

Constantly insisting on “my rights” with no consideration of “my responsibilities” isn’t “freedom” — it’s adolescence.
