Re: Weather_Plus7.1 update available

Adriano Barbieri
 

Hi,

It looks like you are running 2 different versions of bWeather_Plus.
The id required was from the old version 5.0, you must instead use the last 7.1.
Let's try to verify this:
1. press Windows key.
2. enter "%appdata%\nvda\addons" without quotation marks and press enter key.
3 Now see if there are more than one named folder with Weather plus or Weather_Plus and let me know that I will tell you how to proceed.


Don't worry, I'll help you.


Regards
Adriano

I am sorry I am such a bother but for some reason since I turned my computer back on the weather ad--on no longer works. When I go under preferences, weather plus settings, and enter on the one about setting cities it takes me out of there. I cannot even get to the settings I need to set up like I did this morning. I have no idea what I am doing wrong or why it stopped working once the laptop was shut down.


I am using the latest version of NVDA and Windows 10.


I would sure appreciate any help you could give to me.


Also once we get it working again, hopefully someone can help me, where do I have to be to use the keystrokes such as the ones for settings entering a city, etc.?


Maybe I should not have done this but I uninstalled the ad-on and installed it again and still the same problem exists. This is why I am usually afraid to install and set up programs on my own. I was so proud this morning that the only thing I needed my daughter to help me with was to put in the city.



Thank you so much.

Hi,

Every addon you install displays a manifest message, you often find all the information you need to use it, often there is also a button that opens the documentation.
If the addon is already installed you can see the manifest by accessing from tools, manage add-ons or from preferences, weather_plus settings, documentation.

Hi to every one,


Important changes in this version 7.1:

That window appears if the city has recurrences in other states or regions, so you can choose the one you want, otherwise it takes what you type.

Thanks Shaun. I downloaded the add on. I just don't know how to install it.  Doesn't seem to have the file extensions that NVDA uses. I used the instructions for installing add-ons in NVDA.



I haven't had the mental energy to tackle the WiFi setup.  I almost think it would be worth the installation fee if I get the tech to describe all the buttons.


Works fine as a printer using standard Windows print commands.


I like that this printer has dedicated buttons.

However I wouldn't bother.

The combo boxes are still as inaccessible as ever.

The documentation doesn't have a command list, it will run as far back is 17.03 and as current is last nvda.

The documentation seems to just be the really basic readme pulled from github.

Now this is from a user looking at this briefly.

The addon works.

But it may as well be a pile of crap for all it does to me.

I don't know how to work it, there is basically no documentation except for a small description about what it does.

There isn't even a keyboard shortcut list.

If at all possible, I would like to see more than a learn more button labeled on the brother utilities and the iprint software.

There is a combobox on brother utilities but that and iprint are pritty much no gos as far as it matters.

Luckily unless you need to reinstall the driver you never have to bother with this really.

In fact depending on what you are doing, you may never need to bother about any of the brother software for basic tasks, both printing and scanning.

If your router or something changes you can edit the printer address as long as you have set that up yourself and configure it from windows and the web interfaces.

Hopefully you won't need to do that that often.

The software is a bit hit and miss, but then its not a problem because you don't need to use that software for scanning and printing which is about all we will ever need it for.

Anything else and well who knows.

The software for most brother things are just front ends for standard dumb users that want to use it.

The web interface is accessible enough for most users.

The brother printer is like that.

I navigate to the unzipped folder: BrLauncher. Then inspect every sub folder to find the *.nvda-addon. The installer can't find the reqired file.


Is there a different method of launching your helper add-on?

What was the extension?

The extra is only to the Brother utilities application, a kind of launcher to other Brother apps...

Any dificultie on those other apps, like in Brother control center?

Thanks Shaun. I downloaded the add on. I just don't know how to install it.  Doesn't seem to have the file extensions that NVDA uses. I used the instructions for installing add-ons in NVDA.



I haven't had the mental energy to tackle the WiFi setup.  I almost think it would be worth the installation fee if I get the tech to describe all the buttons.


Works fine as a printer using standard Windows print commands.


I like that this printer has dedicated buttons.

However I wouldn't bother.

The combo boxes are still as inaccessible as ever.

The documentation doesn't have a command list, it will run as far back is 17.03 and as current is last nvda.

The documentation seems to just be the really basic readme pulled from github.

Now this is from a user looking at this briefly.

The addon works.

But it may as well be a pile of crap for all it does to me.

I don't know how to work it, there is basically no documentation except for a small description about what it does.

There isn't even a keyboard shortcut list.

If at all possible, I would like to see more than a learn more button labeled on the brother utilities and the iprint software.

There is a combobox on brother utilities but that and iprint are pritty much no gos as far as it matters.

Luckily unless you need to reinstall the driver you never have to bother with this really.

In fact depending on what you are doing, you may never need to bother about any of the brother software for basic tasks, both printing and scanning.

If your router or something changes you can edit the printer address as long as you have set that up yourself and configure it from windows and the web interfaces.

Hopefully you won't need to do that that often.

The software is a bit hit and miss, but then its not a problem because you don't need to use that software for scanning and printing which is about all we will ever need it for.

Anything else and well who knows.

The software for most brother things are just front ends for standard dumb users that want to use it.

The web interface is accessible enough for most users.

If you know how to configure a router then you will know how to use the web interface of any device like this.

The brother printer is like that.

Re: Weather_Plus7.1 update available

Adriano Barbieri
 

Hi,

Every addon you install displays a manifest message, you often find all the information you need to use it, often there is also a button that opens the documentation.
If the addon is already installed you can see the manifest by accessing from tools, manage add-ons or from preferences, weather_plus settings, documentation.

Adriano

Re: excel and headers not working as intended

George Kerscher
 

I find that if the column is set to say column D, then when I am in cells a, b, or c, the heading information, i.e. you need to be to the right of the column head.

 

Try setting A1 as your row and column head and pubt headings across and down and see if this works.

Subject: [nvda] excel and headers not working as intended

Hello all,

I don't see anything describing my situation in recent conversations so
am starting a new thread.

I'm going through the NVDA excel training and have found that when
following the precise directions in the training, headers are not
reading as it says they should.

I have a set of cells with data. I go to the start of the row that I
want to use as column headers and press NVDA+shift+c.

NVDA announces A2 set as start of column headers. This is correct.

However that header is not read when I navigate through the table.

If I repeat the set column header hotkey, it says that the cell is
already set as the column header. If I press it twice rapidly it says
that the column header is removed.

Everything works as it should right up until I actually start navigating
the table data and do not hear headers spoken.

I am using NVDA 19.2, MS excel 1908 most recent build.

Has anyone else seen this problem? Am I missing something in settings? I
do have the table information checkbox for headers selected in the
document settings of NVDA.

If the instructions in the excel tutorial are missing a step it would be
good to correct that as well.

Thank you in advance for help troubleshooting this.

Warmly,
Sally

Re: Mouse Tracking on/off?

 

Thanks.

Here is the description from the manual:
When enabled, NVDA will announce the text currently under the mouse pointer,
as you move it around the screen. This allows you to find things on the
screen, by physically moving the mouse, rather than trying to find them
through object navigation.
In other words, you use it when you are moving a physical mouse which you
aren’t doing. However, at times, when I use the move virtual mouse command
using the keyboard, I hear what the mouse is on announced. So leave it on.
It may be helpful and it won’t do anything undesired.

Hi Group,
For someone using just the keyboard is it better to keep mouse track on or
off?
Sometimes I have trouble activating links and wonder if that has
anything to do with it.
