Re: Filling out MS Word Document

Quentin Christensen
 

I don't think Word forms will ever increase in popularity now that it's very hard to find the controls to create them - you need to enable the developer ribbon first now to get the buttons on the ribbon.  I guess a lot of forms are moving to web page forms now?

Anyway, the other thing I wanted to chime in on was that overtype mode is disabled by default in recent versions of Word.  You need to enable it by going into file menu (alt+f), selecting options (t) then control+tab five times to get to "Advanced", then either press alt+o to get to "use the insert key to control overtype mode".

The other option is to add it to the status bar, then you can press F6, then arrow to it and then press enter, but if you are going to do that, you might as well just enable using INSERT - note if you have INSERT set as your NVDA key, you'll need to press it twice to toggle overtype mode.

Regards

Quentin.

Nevzat,

            You are the recipient of an MS-Word document that is a form that is meant to be printed and filled out by hand, which seems to be how most of them get made.  Why true MS-Word forms, with form fields, have never come into common use I will never know.

            What I tend to do is to select the underlines as a group, then use the underline feature related to the font in use to type in its replacement.

            I hate even doing this as it can cause things to shift that shouldn't shift, but typing in front of the underscores that have been put in the document as the line to write on will guarantee that things will shift and the final result will be, shall we say, unexpected.

            Those who are creating MS-Word forms had ought to know how to actually create MS-Word forms with form fields that you simply tab through and type.  But that ship has long ago sailed and you'll get lots of "forms" that are meant to be printed as paper forms for filling out by hand.

Re: NVDA and Excel

Quentin Christensen
 

Thanks re the subject Jim.

Regarding the question, NVDA+tab to read the item with focus does read the coordinates, although it reads the contents first.  Thinking on it, that's possibly a bug - it should read the location first, then the contents of the item, however, there is an upcoming solution: NVDA+numpad delete (laptop layout is NVDA+delete) will, from 2017.1 (it's in the current master build if you want to try it now), announce the current worksheet name and cell coordinates.

Regards

Quentin.

I'm curious how you pasted that html into the message directly. Anyway, it's good to know this section exists... but it still doesn't explain the backspace problem. I'm experiencing the same thing when connecting over bluetooth. I actually posted a thread yesterday about this subject.

Hi Amy,

Here's the section from the User Guide on using Baum displays including the VarioUltra specifically:


12.5. Baum/Humanware/APH/Orbit Braille Displays

Several BaumHumanWareAPH and Orbit displays are supported when connected via USB, bluetooth or serial. These include:

  • Baum: SuperVario, PocketVario, VarioUltra, Pronto!, SuperVario2, Vario 340
  • HumanWare: Brailliant, BrailleConnect, Brailliant2
  • APH: Refreshabraille
  • Orbit: Orbit Reader 20

Some other displays manufactured by Baum may also work, though this has not been tested.

If connecting via USB to displays which do not use HID, you must first install the USB drivers provided by the manufacturer. The VarioUltra and Pronto! use HID. The Refreshabraille and Orbit Reader 20 can use HID if configured appropriately.

The USB serial mode of the Orbit Reader 20 is currently only supported in Windows 10. USB HID should generally be used instead.

Following are the key assignments for these displays with NVDA. Please see your display's documentation for descriptions of where these keys can be found.

Name Key
Scroll braille display back d2
Scroll braille display forward d5
Move braille display to previous line d1
Move braille display to next line d3
Route to braille cell routing

For displays which have a joystick:

Re: NVDA Not Reading Formatting

I have happened to encounter it. I would then switch between the screen review mode and the object review mode. When I am in the latter, it would report the correct formatting info. Make sure that what you wish to hear the formatting info about, is within the object review.

Filling out MS Word Document

 

Hello everyone,

I am filling out an MS Word form using NVDA.
The blanks to fill out are underlined Which NVDA speaks it as "line
line line ..." an as I type the information, those lines move forward.
Is there a way to keep the underlined blank line stationary while I type?
Or would it be best to delete the underlines, type the information and
then underline if I so wish?
I would appreciate your response.

What I do?


When I open my account, I click on the link Skip to news feed.


Then I click on it. It positiones me down in the vicinity of the Create post area.


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.

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.
