Re: Basic overview I'm navigating Thunderbird with NVDA

Hi i just looked under the sort by section there is a part where you can have them threaded or not.


I use outlook.com for my emails up on the web but did not like it much when they changed the interface, so then looked up the settings for outlook.com and then setup the account in mozilla thunder bird with those details. So now what happens is the emails on outlook.com instead of going to the website now come down to mozilla thunder bird and that is the way i like it.


I am guessing you could also do the same for gmail as well and have them come down to mozilla thunder bird.


The following page should help you configure mozilla thunder bird for gmail to they come down to mozilla thunder bird.


The link to this page is https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Set-up-email/Thunderbird-and-Gmail/ta-p/14181

i should set it up on this computer as well as i do myself have it for my android phones.


hope it helps.

the other thing that has changed in mozilla thunder bird is where the attachments can be found now. They are under the message menu which should be stated in the tutorial of its move and as they used to be under the file menu to insert a attachment is still under the file menu.


Otherwise i do not think mozilla thunder bird has changed much as i use it all of the time.

Hi Tony


A few years back i did a tutorial on using mozilla thunder bird along with navigating it and so on and also based at a new user to mozilla thunder bird.  this was  when written using nvda and still is the same concept to use. the chat part does not work with thunder bird with face book though but am sure other might when set up.


The tutorial can be found on my web site at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/accessible%20email%20client%20mozilla%20thunderbird.html

That link will take you straight to the mozilla thunder bird page i wrote and there is a couple of audio recording to.


you might find other stuff of interest on the website the nvda pages are written for the desk top computer and if you go to the home page it will take you to the main page where you can find other blindness related material.


hope it helps.

Hi


I can not remember if it is or not because every ones preferences are different. But the section of thunder bird is the view menu then sort by. The ones that are ticked are your prefereces.


mine on this computer is the date is checked and descending so the newest is at the top and then going down. If it is not it can easily be put in as a section on the thunder bird tututorial if it is not there.

Re: Problem on reading sitations on google scholar

James AUSTIN
 

Hello

I have done a bit of digging and have discovered the following when moving through the available citation formats in Google Scholar:

1. You need to be in Object Review Mode. At least this works for me.

2. Tabbing through each citation style you can then use Numpad 7 or NumPad 9 to read the chosen citation. For some reason, although NumPad 7 and 9 are supposed to move to the previous and next lines, they read the same information in this case.

Hope this helps

James

Re: Caps lock key not working as insert key

Chris Mullins
 

There are in fact a couple of task bar related windows commands.  Windows+t puts focus on the currently running apps and task bar pinned items.  Windows+b puts focus on the system tray which contains apps running in the background.  Here you can press enter on the Notification chevron button to open  the overflow area, which lists background items that don’t fit on the system tray.  You will find the NVDA icon in the system tray or it’s overflow area and you can press enter on it to display the NVDA menu.  This means you can access the NVDA menu without having to use the NVDA key to do so.

 

Cheers

Also, if you are going to use the task bar icon, you either have to use the context menu key to open the menu or the rough equivalent, shift f10. 
 
I didn't think of the task bar option but it's good to keep in mind just in case it's needed for some reason.

Re: Caps lock key not working as insert key

Gene
 

I haven't installed NVDA for a long time and I didn't know about the dialog.  But it still is very important to know where the actual insert key is especially if you don't have a numpad. 
There are very commonly used commands that are very inconvenient to use with the caps lock option.  Read title bar is one, find in browse mode is another, and announce formatting is a third.  I expect there are others, perhaps many others that I haven't thought of.

In future, when you get a new computer, make sure you know where the insert key is.  It is very important for working with NVDA.  Whenever NVDA is newly installed on a computer, insert is the only NVDA key. 
 
You can change the setting you want to change by working with the NVDA.ini file.  I know where it is in the portable version.  It's probably in a different place in the installed version.  If someone tells you where the NVDA.ini file is, I'll send instructions how to change the setting in the file unless someone does so first.  If you have sighted help available, finding out where the insert key is and following my previous instructions would be the fastest and easiest way to change the setting.

Open keyboard settings with control NVDA key k.  Use either insert since you can't use the caps lock key. 
Tab until you get to use caps lock as an NVDA modifier.  It's a check box. 
Check it with the space bar.
Press enter. 
You can now use the caps lock key as an NVDA modifier. 
Now, issue the command control NVDA key c.  That will make sure the setting is saved permanently.  If you have changed settings you don't want to save, don't use that command until you have settings as you want them since all your current settings will be saved.

Yes, you can.
Click manage labels when logged in to gmail standard view.
You can now chose which labels should be visible in gmail web interface by using the show and hide links assosiated whith each label.
There is also a check box named show in imap which means that the label will be available or hidden when using a imap client like thunderbird.

Hi


I guess where the log will be will depend on the user where it is saved.


when NVDA is running press the nvda key + letter N, then arrow down to
tools, then right to view log then press the enter key. it will give you
the options there to view the current log and also save it to a place
where it is easier to find. mine is set for the desk top but this will
only be for the current log.


when NVDa is restarted it will replace it with a new log and if i
remember right there was a place where the old log would be I have had
no reason to look for it for a long time. The file was called like
nvdalog.old or something.


there is also a add on that will save both the current log and the old
log to a certain area i think it can be found on the nvda add ons page.


Did you save your configuration after you checked those boxes? with nvda
key + ctrl key + letter C


I have a few computers here running windows 10 they all start with nvda
on startup of windows and do not get the problem you are having. The
version of NVDA is nvda 2017.1 with the anniversary version of windows 10.

The current log should catch it if it is set to start when windows does if

well I looked, and can't find the log?
where is it located? I did, with 16.4, and earlier have logon and after
logon screens fine with NVDA but this latest, 17.1, not so lucky.

Using Narrator, can you find the NVDA.log file for the user and see if it

Can you manually load NVDa once your user id has loaded?

Hi


Are you using a installer version? if so use the nvda key + letter N
to get into the preferences of nvda, then arrow right to general
settings, then press the enter key.

Look for the following and make sure it is checked as below.


Automatically start NVDA after I log on to Windows


If you want it also on the log on screen all so check the one under it
with the space bar, then tab to ok.


Now it will start up nvda when windows does and also do the log on
screen. This is only in the installler version not the portable.

I figured out the insert key was after the F 12 Key so I will use that as the access to the NVDA menu until I can get the caps lock key fixed thanks for the help
