Hi, it happens the same when I work with word documents. NVDA doesn't responde as fast as in other aplications, thunderbird or firefox for example. Any advise will be apreciated.

Best regards.

Then, I activate the focus mode. I Shift-tab a few times till I hear "What's on your mind" spoken. Then I tab till I come to the very link called Live video. Then I switch back to the browse mode, and then I press enter to activate it (for it fails to activate while in the focus mode). Then, I go to the focus mode back again, and I would tab till I hear "Next submenu". When I click on it, a new pop-up window is opened for me. It contains an option called "Go live".


I hope this helps!

Hi friends,


I have recently discovered that Google Chrome as a browser makes it possible for us to do the live streaming on facebook. I have checked IE, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and Avast Safe Zone Browser, but to no avail. The link Live Video, it seems, is not recognized by them.


I hope this means something to you.

question: what's the use case of "report text columns"

蔡宗豪 Victor Cai
 

Hi all,
Could someone point out the use case of “reporting text columns”?

Here is My steps to reproduce a case.

  1. Open the attachment.
  2. Press ctrl+alt+arrows to move to row3 column2.
  3. Move to row3 column1.
    NVDA report: column1 column 0 of 1
  4. Move to row3 column2.
    NVDA report: column2 column 1 of 1

feature info:

In Microsoft Word, text columns can now be reported. This is enabled with the “Report page numbers” option in the document formatting dialog.
#5946.

I've asked for a good tutorial on using Facebook with NVDA but so far, no luck.  All anyone says is that Facebook changes their web page interface so radically and so often, that it just isn't possible to use except for Smart Phone app versions.

Hi friends,


I have recently discovered that Google Chrome as a browser makes it possible for us to do the live streaming on facebook. I have checked IE, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and Avast Safe Zone Browser, but to no avail. The link Live Video, it seems, is not recognized by them.


I hope this means something to you.

Re: A Couple More Word Quesions

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Kelby,

You are most welcome to purchase the book which does, indeed, cover most of these: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

But to answer your questions:

Moving quickly to misspelt words can be done with alt+f7.  This jumps to the next misspelt word and automatically opens the context menu which contains alternative words.  The issue with this is that you don't automatically see what the misspelt word itself is.  If you press escape you can close the context menu and the focus goes back to the document with the focus on the misspelt word so you can read the text around the word.

Right clicking on a word is most easily done by simply moving the focus to the word and pressing the applications key.  This works exactly the same as right clicking on the word and you can see either alternative words if Word thinks it's misspelt, or synonyms otherwise.

You can close task panes - some task panes have their own keystroke - for instance, press control+alt+shift+s to open the styles task pane, and close it using the same keystroke.  For most though, ensure the focus is on the task pane, press control+spacebar and choose close (press C).

Note that you can also use SHIFT+F6 to move through open panes and sections of the window in reverse order.

Regards

Quentin.

Sorry for asking so many of these; maybe I should buy the book.

1. Is there any way to quickly move to misspelled words in the
document by quick keys or does one have to use f7 to go to the
toolbar? (This is another thing NVDA might not do that JAWS can.)
Also, how do you route the mouse to a specific word so that you can
right clock on the word to see i.e. the thesaurus? I've tried this
with object navigation but I'm not getting anything?

2. Is there a way to get rid of the editing/proofing  toolbar when
you're done with it so you don't have to push f6 so many times when
moving between panes?

Re: NVDA and the Nano text editor

 

Well to be honest I am waiting for the orbit, the braigo or the invision displays or other new tech units to make it here.
I don't mind paying 600 bucks for a simple device to read the screen with, but till one comes out well.
The orbit seems likely, a lot of people worked with this including people here in nz so it should be interesting.

Hi Travis

I don't have a Braille display at present, which may be where the
problem lies.

I am able to navigate with the arrow keys up and down and letter by
letter. However, when I use one of Nano's navigation commands or another
nano command, NVDA loses track of the cursor or else cannot read the
screen say in the file browser for instance

Thanks for any help/advice

Yep, use nano all the time. I don't have any issues using it, but
then again, I've been using linux since somewhere around 1992-93
timeframe, so I'm used to it, and don't have problems moving around
the screen using it. There's always the control-L command if your
cursor is completely lost, and you can't find it (doesn't happen
often, but it does happen, much less now that dialup is gone), what
specifically are you having trouble with? give me steps to replicate,
and I'll find a solution for you.

Hi folks

Apologies as i have asked a similar question before. Does anyone on
list use Nano, a UNIX command line text editor please? I am able to
read and edit text with the arrow keys, but NVDA cannot see Nano's
cursor when it is moved with Nano-specific commands. The same is also
true for VIM --- another text editor.

While I can use Notepadd ++ and other graphical text editors, I work
a lot with the command line and would prefer to stay within it if at
all possible.

I think Travis has used Nano on here?

Thanks

Take care

Re: Reading Endnotes

James AUSTIN
 

I do not use MS Office, but are the endnotes at the end of the document, or at the end of each chapter?

If the former, might it be possible to find the first reference in the text, move to the first note and highlight them all Once highlighted you could try copying them to a new document. This should let you read them. A little cumbersome, if it works, but this is what I did on the Mac using Nisus Writer Pro.

Ah, I see. Maybe it's just JAWS that does that, then; or perhaps it's footnotes I'm thinking of. In either case, I know if you just save a Word Document with footnotes or endnotes in plain text it converts the way you describe.

I think you misunderstood what I was asking. I don't actually need to

Interesting question. I've never tried this so just went and had a
quick look. It seems that you can do it manually, with a VB script

tool. I found a couple of different sites, but this one lists the
three main methods all on one page:
https://www.extendoffice.com/documents/word/1192-word-
convert-endnotes-to-plain-text.html
The only thing I think is that this leaves the notes at the end of
the document as regular text (so you could easily copy to plain

another
format which may not support Word's footnotes). I suspect what you
were after was something that put the footnotes in the middle of
the text
where
the reference was?

One thing you could do, is to create a macro to do it. On the view
menu
(alt+w) is a macro option (m). From here you can record a macro,
which once started, will "record" every keystroke you press until
you turn recording off. While recording, you can move to the next
footnote
(alt+s,
o, n) then jump to the notes area (alt+s, h) select and copy the
note,
move
back to the main text, and paste the text from the footnote,
perhaps in brackets.

Although I don't have an immediate need for it personally, I'll be
interested to see if anyone else comes up with a good solution to this.

Kind regards

Quentin.
