    Yes.  I know about the short cut, and it is on my desk top, but it won't work.  My friend tried clicking on some things on desktop, but it just wouldn't open anything.

If NVDA was installed, it creates a short cut on the desktop and as I recall, it also creates a short cut command, control alt n to run NVDA.  While you might want NVDA to run at boot up, it is not necessary to have it run automatically to start it yourself.  and in addition, you should know how to run it yourself because at times you need to restart it.  This can usually be done, as I understand it, by using the short cut command even when NVDA is already running.

A friend loaded NVDA on an old vista computer I was given.  NVDA won't
let me check the box about automaticly starting NVDA when windows
start.  I do't know if vista is the problem.  I'm also not sure if I
have a 32 or 2=62 bit.  To use the coputer, I have to have my friend get
it started for me.  I'm ot sure what the problem is.

I believe it was under program files. I didn't instal the portable version. There are some really strange commands for NVDA. That's just my thoughts.

Melissa, did they install it under program files, or as a portable version?


If portable, then you might need to add a start menu shortcut under the start folder, but, I have no experience with vista.


Besides that, think either hitting windows key + U, possibly followed a couple of seconds later, might bring up vista's rendtion of MS narrator, whereas just the first keystroke did it under XP, but, like said, have no experience with vista.

does nvda uses vocalizer 2 point 2 or still version 1?

I don't know, but I have used version 2.2 with JAWS and found it to be very
responsive. I've also used Vocalizer Expressive under Mac OS, with similarly
good results. However, I don't know which version Apple are using.

Thus, if you can get version 2.2 for NVDA, it should be worth the cost.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Outlook.com or Outlook Web Access

Well it depends exactly on the program/app used and or what exactly you are setting up.
I am not sure about android but the settings should be the same.
Iphone and pad, should be.
1. move to settings and double click that, then mail and contacts then accounts then add new, then add your gmail as you would usually do so and it will just do it.
One thing, I recomend you use imap on your gmail.
You need to turn this on on gmail/ settings/ pop and forewarding and make sure imap is on then save.
If you do start doing this and you use pop on your pc, you should change this to imap or you could have some interesting problems.
For me it worked fine using my dad's outlook software.
However after a few months outlook decided that it wouldn't sync and I switched to imap and it worked fine, other things could be you having your pc trash mails etc before your other device got them, etc.
Just remember that once you read on one and kill it it will be mirrored.
On the pc end make sure if you are subscribed to all folders this should be automatic but Just make sure they are I forgot how with outlook right now.
On android if it is google and it will be, then the email should be there.
Android should have a settings / accounts tab and an add new button somewhere.
I am unsure about outlook.com, or others though.
