Hi all, I hope you're all fine.

It has been a while that I'm trying to donate to the NVDA project but it always appears the paypal opcion. My question here is: is it possible to make a donation using only my visa credit card and not having to create a paypal account?

I will deeply appreciate any help or advise you can guys give me here. I would love to contribute to this wonderful screen reader, at least with a little amount.

Best of all,

Re: NVDA and LibreOffice annoyannces: dates

Walmir Schultz
 

Well, you are right.

This is another example of how we must adapt to the world and not the other way round...

But I keep thinking why early versions of LibreOffice Calc accepted this date formatting and why thy decided to change it.

Re: NVDA and LibreOfice annoyances - Two, three or many places?

 

walmir,
if you did not have these problems in libreoffice 5.1 and you
incounter them only in 5.2 and later, you should subscribe in bugs
report for libreoffice and inform developers of libreoffice to fix
them.

It is only truly urgent, as opposed to a major annoyance, if what is being
announced in reference to a number deprives you of the information you
need.

If something is set to display two or three decimal places and NVDA reads
five, as an example, you can still work with that.  Your description states
that there is an excess of information, not a lack of it.

If you believe you've found a bug, and I believe you have, then reporting it
via the NVDA Github bug reporting page is about all you can do.  Things get
fixed in due time.

Re: NVDA and Libreofice, a new problem: CRASH!!

 

hi walmir.
i recommend to test libreoffice 5.2.6.2, and waite also for 5.2.7
which is very near to release.
i read that the developers fixed some important bugs in libreoffice
which one of the openoffice users requested there fix in openoffice!
but libreoffice sometimes cant open a particular file and document
recovery appears.
its special for some documents and you should subscribe in
www.bugs.libreoffice.org
send your report and include your document for developers to fix.
hope that help and God bless you.

One of the reasons I decided to downgrade to LibreOffice 5.1.x was a new

While using Calc 5.3.2.1, the program crashes randomly, showing a

send a report and the file recovering is launched.

As far as I know, this only occurs in conjunction with NVDA.

Thats not true I do have my nvda to speak percentages but in ie 11 it does not speak the percentages try it and you will see that you do need an add on. I even did try having the background progress bars checked but no go so try before you post.

Hi, Brian,

I'm afraid I have to disagree with you here. If you want to hear the percentage when something is downloading, just press insert U. The choices you'll get are beep, speak percentages or no speech. You don't really need something special like an add-on or narrator to announce percentages when downloading a file.

lastweek I called the accessability line and gave them my sugestions for narator and since then I have in email contact with Sean about this. He would pass on my sugestions and he also said that would make narator stand out. I told him that if narator could read the percentages when downloading in internet explorer and have narator announce every update as it is being downloaded. I told him that nvda does not do theese things and I don't that it ever will. Theese are both microsoft issues with windows so this should be able to be done. This would make naratordo what other screen readers can't do.

Re: NVDA not showing up in Ease Of Access Center

Robert Mendoza
 

Hi, Roger!


You may find it by typing keyword in the search field first about the Ease of Access in Control panel. Then, it will pop-up another dialog box for it. Then, tabbed through till you find the "Use the computer without a display", and at the end or bottom of the dialog box you will see the nvda check box. then press space bar to check it. and press Apply to take effect and press Okay button.

Re: Read current line 3 times to copy its content to clipboard?

Gene
 

If military spelling is to be preserved, the command would have to be four times to copy to clip board.  At present, one time says the current line.  Twice spells it.  Three times spells it with military spelling.  I don't know if people use the military spelling option but three times to copy to clipboard would remove it.

Hi Gerardo,
In fact, I had filed a ticket a very long while ago on the tracker, but admittedly, I had been unable to provide any substantial usage case for the same. Moreover, another user even reported that pressing
NVDA+T thrice accidentally was sufficient an annoyance because due to
that inadvertent extra NVDA+T press, the clipboard contents got modified which can be an understandable irritation, thus voting against NVDA+L thrice copying the current line. I would be happy to look and provide you the ticket link if necessary, in case you wish to substantiate the feature requests with usage cases and other justification.
Thanks.

Re: NVDA and LibreOffice annoyannces: dates

Walmir Schultz
 

I have a spreadsheet with gold prices that are composed of a column with mont/year and other wit the value.

Using, for example, "Jan/99" is better than other formats. Why? Because on saturdays and mondays there is no information. So, the true day is not important, but this formatting "says" that it is the last working day of that month.
I was not responsible for this formatting, but was very happy because it facilitate the input.
