Urgent Help required: NVDA and Outlook 2016

Ketan Kothari
 

Hi friends,

I am using NVDA 2016.4 with Windows 10 and Office 365. I am unable to
access any other folder that that of inbox in Outlook 2016. I am on
exchange mail and want to see other folders. Earlier, this was quite
easy but now the only thing I get to hear is “current mailbox”. I
wonder what settings need to be adjusted.

Please help as this is urgent.

With best wishes,

Ketan

Re: Reading messages in Microsoft Outlook 2016 with NVDA

I would think using another screen-reader wouldn't be necessary.  You can probably cause NVDA to read the document in browse mode by simply pressing alt one time to move to the ribbons and alt once again to return to the main window.  it shouldn't matter how you leave the document window and return.  Pressing alt twice should be a minor enough inconvenience that its negligible or almost so.

Subject: [nvda] Reading messages in Microsoft Outlook 2016 with NVDA

I've just tested Microsoft Outlook 2016 (the desktop version of Outlook
supplied with Office365, including the latest November update), with NVDA and
noticed the following problem. If I press enter to open a message from the
message list, NVDA is sometimes unable to read the contents until I move focus
out of the message body then move focus back into it, at which point it enters
browse mode as intended.

This isn't a serious issue for me as I can use another screen reader with
Outlook, but I'm reporting it nevertheless to help the community. I can
generate a log file if needed.

Tested with NVDA 2016.4, Windows 10 Pro (x64), 32-bit installation of
Microsoft Office.

Libre office and NVDA

The Gamages
 

Hello,

My apologies if this is not the correct address for this subject.

 

I am using the latest NVDA and Libre office Writer.

 

I am in the process of recording articles about libre office writer using NVDA as screen reader for the magazine called “Talking Computers”, 

Mostly, NVDA does a good job with some work arounds in  some areas, Iamb about to  cover the subject of tables and have encountered an anomaly with NVDA announcing rows incorrectly under certain conditions. If more than one line is required in a cell, whether allowing the line to wrap or if forced to do so by pressing enter, NVDA announces the next row as if the extra line or lines in the previous cell are rows, so, if, for instance, I start in row one and type two lines in this cell, the next row down is announced as row three, even though there are only two rows in the table.

If I now delete this row which is being announced as row three and re insert it, it will read correctly as row two.

It seems that NVDA is recognising extra lines in a cell as rows, so the actual row below is announced incorrectly.

This only happens if more than one row is present in the original table, if I start with only one row, then pressing tab at the end of the table will create another row as normal and it announces correctly as row two.

 

Incidentally, the same thing happens if I start at any row In a table, not just the first one.

 

I have tried this with Jaws and this announces cells as A1, A2 etc as if it was a spread sheet, but it does indicate the rows correctly even with multiple lines in a cell.

 

Once again, my apologies if this is not the correct place for this message, if that is the case could you please direct me to the correct address, thank you very much.

 

Best Regards, Jim.

Invitation to The NVDA Community to The ESpeak-NG E-Group

Bhavya shah
 

Dear NVDA users, developers and other beneficiaries,
NVDA’s default text to speech engine had always been ESpeak, despite
the growing choices available in the area of speech synthesis. Only in
NVDA version 2016.2 and henceforth witnessed a change – featuring the
next generation of ESpeak, better known as ESpeak-NG. Read on to know
more about the creation of its official discussion forum, if you see
promise and potential in this open source and multi-lingual
synthesizer, have feature requests, bug reports or pronunciation
errors to report to the developers of ESpeak-NG, or simply wish to get
engaged and possibly contribute to ESpeak-NG community.
Let me introduce to you ESpeak-NG on Groups.io, an all-new and devoted
forum for ESpeak speech synthesis’s present and future counterpart –
Espeak-NG. The purpose of this new formation is to lay the foundation
for an ESpeak-NG community, comprising of its users, developers and
other interested parties, to replace the old and obsolete ESpeak
SourceForge mailing list over which there was no administrative
control achievable, provide a better platform for ESpeak-NG related
subjects to be comprehensively discussed, and to create a friendly
environment for members of the conceived ESpeak-NG community.
Pausing the ramblings a bit, here’s how you can become a part of this
mailing list:
Step 1 Send a blank e-mail to espeak-ng+subscribe@groups.io without
the quotation marks.
Step 2 Send a blank reply to the subsequently received confirmation
prompt mail from Groups.io.
Step 3 You should receive a successful subscription e-mail prompt from
Groups.io in a few moments.
Alternatively, can also use the Groups.io web interface to join the
ESpeak-NG group located at www.groups.io/g/espeak-ng/.
Once you have successfully joined the ESpeak-NG discussion hub, you
can use the following e-mail addresses to issue different actions:
To Post: espeak-ng@groups.io
To Unsubscribe: espeak-ng+unsubscribe@groups.io
To Contact The Group Owner: espeak-ng+owner@groups.io
Currently, Reece H. Dunn is the group owner and I am appointed a group
moderator over there, and we already have 45+ members.
Let us strive to shape the future of a project as promising as
ESpeak-NG, its features, its community and much more.
Hoping to see many of you on the next generation mailing list of the
next generation ESpeak soon!

Best Regards,
Bhavya Shah

Stascom Utility Suite has a few utilities, one of which is to generate
an alphabetic list of 60 commonly used Windows applications and

As stated in my user guide, it does not offer anything more than what
is available in Windows itself, it merely is an easy way to get to the

Re: focus on window with nvda

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

I use chrome, and the text I posted is exactly what I see on the page, that's all there is.

If you want to make it interactive for screen reader users, you'll need to use a different approach.  Like brian said, add a link to some audio descriptions, have a link for feedback, contact us, reserve a spot, and so on.  We're not going to get anything out of the pictures themselves, so the only way to get the emersion experience is to provide audio descriptions for each set of photos.  Do your photo thing, then offer a second link for audio description of said pictures.  You will never get a screen reader to describe what you're seeing when you click on the pictures, at least not with current technology.

Brian,

The advice about creating a "link near the start for text descriptions and audio" is the type of feedback I am looking for.  But to dig a little deeper, in IE 11 with NVDA turned on, the screen reader goes through the entire thumbnail panel and reads the title / caption for the each particular scene without pause.  In Firefox and Chrome, instead of reading the title / caption of the scene, NVDA simply says the word "clickable."  This is because most of the scenes are panoramic images that are created by stitching together several fisheye shots in different directions to create a photo bubble.  When a sighted viewer clicks on a a panorama, it immerses them inside of the photo bubble and they are able to push it around or up and down in any direction.with their mouse or with unannounced keys in a toolbar that exists at the bottom of the project.....and in this way, it behaves like a mini-video.   My first step in this is to figure out why IE 11 will speak the caption, but Firefox and Chrome will instead, only say "clickable."  In Firefox and Chrome, NVDA will speak any caption or tooltip on the screen upon mouseover.  I am trying to figure out how to develop keystrokes which move to different elements on the page and speak both the name of the caption and whether it is "clickable."

Re: Using spotify.

After left clicking, go below with control plus pagedown. there and going up you'll see all available options. to select one use right click on. for example, right click on add to playlist. then you should choose a playlist to add, or create a new playlist. is complicate but posible.

I use an older version but I tested when I last did with the new version of NVDA and a very recent version of Firefox.

Hi all,

Another variable: which NVDA version are you all using? Gene uses an older version, and others might be using a later version.

In the meantime, I’ll test these sites in Edge (both stable and latest Insider Preview). Note that my tests are based on latest next branch snapshots.

Re: focus on window with nvda

I'm not sure how to answer your question.  You should probably find an NVDA developer or someone who works with NVDA in testing and designing web sites.  You may get one or more recommendations as the discussion continues here or there may be another place to ask, which you may also be referred to from this discussion.  And the site will have to perform well with other screen-readers as well.  I don't know if getting the site to perform well with NVDA will ensure that it will perform well with other screen-readers. 
 
As far as I know, when using Flash and I would think HTML5, at least for audio, the original files are actually available in another format which is then played by the flash Player and, I would think, by the HTML5 player.  You might do better to provide acces in some way, to the original files.  Not being a site developer, this is just the thought of someone who knows a very little bit about such things but is not meant as more than just a speculative suggestion to promote thought and discussion.

Gene,

The feedback that I am getting is exactly what I was hoping for.  My projects are optimized for viewing in an html5 enabled browser and computer.  Older graphics cards in some computers do not support viewing what is called WebGL content in html5.  For this reason, my projects have an automatic Flash fallback option.  Unfortunately though, Firefox is not automatically reverting to the Flash version because of all of the security concerns about Flash.  I don't even think that the Flash fallback ever works in Chrome these days.  With IE 11, for some reason the older non WebGL graphics card in one of my older test machines will surprising work using the primary html5 version of the tour.....so I have no way to see what IE 11 does when it has to revert to flash.  With all of that said, the feedback from Travis Siegel indicates that whatever browser he is using at least speaks the Title / Caption of each scene correctly.  That's a start.

What I would like to ask now is.....if you were to click a button to launch a virtual tour for The University off Aukland that is designed to show all aspects of the campus, what features would optimize it for you using NVDA?
