Re: Announcing immediate release of Enhanced Touch gestures add-on version 17.03

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

Heh, I'm one of those who would report the touch gestures work just fine. :)
I have a windows 8.1 machine and NVDA touch gestures do indeed work just fine. There's one gesture that isn't in the documentation, (don't remember which one, though I did report it here), but otherwise, I can work with the gestures just fine. I don't use them often, but they do come in handy for certain tasks, or if I don't feel like turning on my wireless keyboard for just a couple quick and simple things.

I find nvda very bad with touch as well. I hope at some time the devs might do something with touch. I thought it was just me, but to many users seem to report that they can't work touch. I know someone will come back and say it works well with me but I have about 5 tablet devices and just can not get nvda to play well with touch I have given up.


Re: Windows 10 App Essentials 17.03 released

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

Also, there's a reason the addon is called windows 10 add on essentials. There's plenty of folks not using windows 10 yet, and if NVDA is to stay compatible with those users, rolling the entire functionality of the addon into NVDA would require a whole lot of if statements in lots of places to ensure it was running on windows 10 before trying different functionality. I'm guessing that's the main reason it's an addon at this point.


Re: Using Adobe Digital Edition Reader with NVDA

Hi everyone,,

Not to throw a spanner in the works, but is it not correct that Calibre will only convert DRM-free ebooks?

Thanks

Re: Question about Open office.

Nika Tsiklauri
 

Hi! Thanks for help. I tested that version and it is really great. I also have an updates about 4-th version of this software. When pressing enter on that menu buton, we should scrill down with arrow keys. NVDA doesn't reads the menus, but it moves. it depends in which context we are using that button. Sometimes there is one button, which ic open. Otherwise, When I try to create a autotext, I press autotext menu and then press down arrow once. Bingo! I am there and then pressing enter activates the item. After that, tab key is working for navigation just fine.

BTW, How to insert a symbol " in that ptorgam? When I am trying to type ", it types the left double angle brackets, but not that. I am currently copying that from notepad and then pasting it in the place where I need it. so, how can I type it?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Headers in Microsoft Word

Gene
 

Commands such as control o, control n, etc. that bypass menus and ribbons often work.  Shortcuts that rely on menus generally don't work in ribbon programs.  And, as I said, the kind of short cuts such as control o, control n, etc. aren't actually shortcuts, even though most people call them short cuts.  They are accellerator commands.

It may also be worth mentioning that the shortcut is a toggle to open

Most 2003 shortcuts still work in ribbon versions.

I should have said the command is likely not to work if you are using a ribbon version.  I don't use word so I can't check.

Unless you are using a version of word with menus, it won't work.  What are technically called accelerator commands, which allow you to do something by bypassing menus or ribbons still mostly work.  Commands such as control for open, for example.  Ribbon programs have one menu.  In that menu, some things work as before in terms of short cut commands.  You can probably open the save as dialog with alt f a.  But that's because that command is in the menu and Microsoft intentionally preserved the old short cut sequence.

Yes, I wrote to them a couple of years ago, and the answer sounded more or less like "we can't be bothered".


I wouldn't waste my time with devs likethose.

If you want a fair alternative to Whatsapp, try Signal.


When I last used it, it was very accessible. It's a lot more private, and Whatsapp themselves use the encryption system developed by the devs of Signal...


If Telegram can't be bothered with us, why bother with them?
