It is. it’s used for spread sheets. For example. If you are working in an office. You use it for payroll and other flo charts such as budget. I tried it in my boss’s office.  He installed NVDA on the computer. He has it not start when the computer starts up.  I don’t know how to use excel. He took me to it or I’ll say another co-worker took me to payroll and where excel will be used.

Thank you for that information, Arlene.

 

Once I had the chance to get by a PC which had NVDA on it, I gave it a try. You're defiitely correct regarding it being usable. I'm actually quite impressed. Anyway, again, thanks for the help. Stay warm. Hopefully you're not getting the cold front we just got here near Charlotte NC. LOL!

Hi, sorry I’m late in this thread. I thought Excel was only used as a spread sheet  not for documents.  Yes, excel can be used with NVDA. I’ve seen it but only as a spread sheet.

As you already know, excel is not a word processor.  It always irks me when folks use excel for document management.  It's like nobody knows it's a spreadsheet program, and millions of other tools exist to handle documents, including formatting to one's liking.  There's zero reasons to use excel for document management, and it's just a sad state of affairs that folks still do this.  If it were me, I'd be campaigning strongly for a change in venue, since typically, it's generally best to use a program for it's intended purpose instead of shoehorning it into a role it was never meant to fill, but that's just my take on things, feel free to ignore as desired.

Just saying, excel is a horrible tool to use, just because formatting is a premium.

You could copy and paste the content into a Word doc.  Once it’s in a word doc, you can convert the table to text which would simplify everything greatly, but still keep it lined up.

 

I don’t have any personal experience with NVDA and Excel, but someone who works for me who is blind hates it.  But all the things he has complained about (drop down boxes, comments, totals changing when content changes etc.) you probably wouldn’t be using

Importance: High

 

Guys,

 

I just have taken on a new position at my church. One of the things which will be required of me on a very regular basis is to read spreadsheet documents which will be created in Excel.

 

I should make it very clear that these files will not have anything in them of numerical value, nor have any formulas. The only reason they are using Excel is to keep things neetly organized in both rows and columns, and to make sure that things accessibly line up correctly.

 

So, being that we are not using Excel for the mathematical side of it, but more just for very basic organization, I’m curious how well NVDA will work with Excel, seeing that I honestly haven’t really used it heavily up until now. It seems to work very very well with JAWS, but I’ve not had the chance to try it with NVDA. If this doesn’t work, which I’m sure it probably will, then I’m going to have to work with them on another sollution, which isn’t a problem, I just need to know either way.

 

As for my few questions, provided that the lady who does the documents makes the first row of columns specifically be headers, like, name, location assighment, etc, then is there a way, say, I then went to the next row down and saw Chris Gilland, could I somehow query the header of that column and see that I’m in the, “Name” column?

 

Secondly, is there a way to have excel report the current cell coordinants without the need for me to focus on another cell, then move back to the one I initially was in thereby forcing NVDA to speak them? And finally, can I have NVDA read not just one cell at a time, but instead read me the entire row?

 

Thanks.

 

Chris.

Re: Symbol dialogue in MS Word 2016

 

Marco,

         Could you be just a bit more specific about what it is you're trying to accomplish?

         There are keyboard shortcuts and even "correct as you type" shortcuts to allow the insertion of the more common symbols in MS-Word.  I've generally used the Character Map utility of Windows to find what I want then select it, copy it, and paste it but given the layout of Character Map that would be awfully tedious even if it is 100% accessible.

          You might also want to have a look at one or more of the first seven webpages returned by this DuckDuckGo search on "Word 2016 insert symbol".  The youtube video might be particularly helpful.  It all depends on how accessible the Insert Symbol dialog is.

Re: Publishing an eBook with NVDA

David Griffith
 

Sorry I sent this to the wrong list.

Should have come to this list.

No – Codex is an alternative to Calibre developed specifically for Visually Impaired People  by a VI Programmer  called James Scholes. It is intended for converting between virtually any document format  to ePub Mobi Kindle etc.

 

It is also advertised as being able to remove Kindle DRM for Accessibility Purposes – but there are lost of Caveats to that conversion ability.  Basically in relation to Kindle conversion it only works with Kindle PC 1.17. Not 1.14 Accessibility Plugin version or latest Kindle 1.19 accessible with NVDA. I am not clear if this is a limitation or design as it is made clear the DRM stripping ability is for personal accessibility access only.

 

As I say I find it very useful just for context menu instant conversion between Word, RTF, txt , epub mobi  and so on.

I thought it was just worth mentioning that the Codex program produced for VI Users by James Scholes includes an Explorer context menu shortcut which converts from many document formats to ePub Mobi and  other formats and back.

 

So with this program just focus on your Word Document  in Explorer, bring up the context menu, select Codex and then convert to ePub from your available options.

Seems to work fine in the limited use I have made of it.

This program is most often cited for Kindle DRM Removal but these other ottions are also very useful.

I haven't used Smashwords, although I have published on other platforms.  One tool I have used is Calibre which converts documents to and from a number of formats, including ePub (and mobi).

 

Once you have an ePub, it's worth running through: http://validator.idpf.org/ which will test whether there are any major ePub validation errors which will often throw up red flags on various publishing sites (Apple iBooks will reject books which don't pass that validator for instance - or at least, if they reject you, they recommend fixing any errors that site shows).

 

Kind regards

Hi David,

I have published a book on smashwords some years ago.  The process is accessible but you need your book formatted correctly which is where you  may want to get sighted assistance to verify the formatting like uniform fonts being used etc. Yes, it may be possible to format correctly with NVDA but the process is tedious not because of NVDA but the way a screen reader works and presents information via speech. If we could get a tool like the Jaws text analyser,  verifying formatting etc., would become easier. Yes, there is already a ticket about this.

Re: Braille Tables?

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Chris,

From the Braille configuration screen (no quick shortcut, you need to press NVDA+N, then go to preferences then Braille) you can select the input and output tables.  From a quick look (by someone unfamiliar with the nuances of the various Greek languages and dialects), two options in the Output table are: Koine Greek, and Greek (Greece) Grade 1.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Is there a way to change the braille table within NVDA? I'm looking at some christian resources online for part of my ministry work which are requiring that I be able to get to the Greek alphabet. I'm sure I remember seeing a way to switch things over, but just don't remember where. Further, is there a table which would support the polytonic greek, or does it only work with more modern.

Re: Eliminating excess verbiage in e-mail programs

Quentin Christensen
 

Creating a configuration profile for your e-mail program would enable you to set table headers not to be read in Outlook etc, without affecting tables in Word or Firefox.

See the user guide: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#toc83 for some info on this, or the "Basic Training for NVDA" module for a more in-depth walkthrough with activities: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi,

This applies to tables with correct coding for table headers no matter where they are.

Cheers,

I'll try it.


What effect does this have in other contexts?  If it impairs useability, I would think a profile would be the way to do this.  Is that correct?

Hi,

Already possible: what happens if you tell NVDA to not announce table column headers?

Cheers,

I can get rid of the constant repetition of the words to and from and subject when e-mail headers are read in e-mail programs by using the speech dictionary.  But considering that, after being heard a small number of times by inexperienced users, this verbiage gives no useful information and wastes time, could there be a feature you can turn on to eliminate such verbiage specifically and only in e-mail programs?  I imagine the feature would be limited to programs NVDA has been taught to work with in this way through scripts or in some other way.  Even if this were just done for about five popular programs, Outlook Express, Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, and the Windows 10 mail app, I expect it would make going through messages much more pleasant for a lot of users.
