Unreadable message titles in Inbox list

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Hi,

 

I have an strange problem reading Messages in my inbox!

 

I am using Outlook 2016 in Windows 10 with NVDA . (All latest versions).

 

This problem happens frequently but not all the time. I cannot find out what the cause of the problem is. I also cannot see when it might or might not happen.

 

Here's the story:

I get about 200 messages a day from all the discussion lists that I am following and some personal emails. I like to keep my messages in reverse sort order so that the oldest are at the top. This way, I can keep the messages that interest me at the top of the list and delete the newer ones below when I don't want to keep them.

 

my method for managing the messages is to press  down-arrow on a message if I want to keep it so that the next message comes into focus. If I want to reject the message, I press the delete key. This moves the next message up into the position of the NVDA focus. In this way, I can move through all the messages rapidly.

 

When the mysterious problem appears, I have found that down-arrow reveals nothing. Just silence. I have to press tab to jump away from the message list and shift-tab to get back and then I find that NVDA+numpad 8 tells me that the next message has actually moved up into the focus position as you would expect. No amount of up-arrow or down-arrow yields any speech on each of the messages. As you know, what should happen is that I hear the sender and title information as the arrow moves from message to message.

 

I have persisted with down-arrow from silent message to silent message and found that I can get back to the normal echoing behaviour after about the 150th message! Alternatively, I can press control and end   to move to the 250th or last message in the Inbox where the movement of the up-arrow is echoed from message to message as normal. As an experiment, I have persisted with the up-arrow from the bottom of the list and found that when I arrive at the 150th message from the top, I suddenly lose the speaking of the sender and title details again. In other words, I am back into the unspeaking block of messages! I checked the 151st message and, sure enough, NVDA reads out the title details. Then I press up-arrow back to the 150th to find it silent and all the rest of the messages above it to the top continued silent as before.

 

I hope you can follow this! It is as if a curtain lies over the first 150 messages. I can get out from under the curtain at about the 151st message and proceed as normal to the last message. Likewise, I can jump to the bottom of the list and read all the message details until I rise back up to the bottom of the curtain at the 150th message.

 

As I said at the beginning, this does not happen every day but it does happen frequently.

 

The last time it happened, I saved the 150 curtained messages in a new folder and the unreadable behaviour persists even now.

Please understand that I can press enter on each message, whether curtained or not,  and read it perfectly. The problem is that of identifying the message in the Inbox list before opening it.

 

I would welcome any ideas or suggestions to see if I can get to the bottom of this behaviour.

By the way, JAWS does not have this problem only NVDA. I have tried JAWS 16 on the same curtained block of messages and JAWS can read each of the title details normally.

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

How to disable the "graphic" pronunciation in alternative texts?

Rafael Bald
 

Hello,

Sorry for my english, I'm using the google translator.

I work in a public university in Brazil and I am part of a project that seeks to understand and create a standardization in the elaboration of digital archives accessible to scientific publications and other magazines of the institution. Our audience is aimed at those with partial or total vision difficulties.

In short, we want to establish standards for the creation of accessible PDFs, which are read by NVDA, in a coherent and inherent way to the visual media.

During the test run, we had difficulty with how the screen reader ends up repeating the term "graphic" many times each time it encounters an alternative text function.

How to disable the "Graphic" quote at every encounter with the alternative text function in reading images from PDF files?


Greatful,

Re: Slow behavior of NVDA in Outlook 2016

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Hi Sylvie,

I am using Outlook 2016 with NVDA on Windows 10 and I do not encounter any slowing down between screens or when reading text. The only time I experience that kind of slowdown of speech is in Excel when I am reading formulas. NVDA takes a while to say "left paren" or "right paren". I looked into this and found that the mathematical symbols are not in the default dictionary file and NVDA has to go to another file to find the word to speak and describe the bracket under the cursor.

Your problem sounds so like this that I wonder if you have a language setting problem. Are you working in French or English? If in French, are you using Outlook in English while your language setting is French? On the other hand, is it the reverse? By that I mean, are you using French when your default language setting is English? Apart from either of these settings, do any of the words you meet have French accents or other French symbols? If so, then you may be experiencing the same problem as mine in Excel where NVDA has to go to a different file to find the words for those symbols.

Let me know if any of this applies to your situation.


Yours sincerely,

Cearbhall O'Meadhra

Subject: [nvda] Slow behavior of NVDA in Outlook 2016

Hello all,

First, let me introduce myself as I am new on this list.

My name is Sylvie, I live in France and work for a company training people on how to make web sites accessible to all.

I use NVDA as my primary screen reader and am really enthusiastic about it.

I write you today for one user who encounters a very slow behaviour of NVDA while using OUtlook 2016 on his Lenovo PC running on Windows 10.

He uses Google APP Sync in order to synchronise his mails, calendars and contacts between his different devices.

When he writes or displays e-mails, NVDA reacts very slowly. It sometimes takes 3 or 4 seconds while going to the next word.

He tried several things to solve the problem: changing his anti-virus software, disabling Windows Defender, changing settings on Outlook and Lenovo tools, but nothing has improved.

He installed Jaws 18 and did not encounter the same issue.

Has anyone similar problems or any solutions?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards

Sylvie

Hello Fernando,

When you are in "preferences", choose dictionary settings.

Then you can select default dictionary, voice dictionary or temporary dictionary.

If you select Voice dictionary, you may add an entry for the voice you are just using.

If you want to add a Facebook entry to your Spanish voice, choose this voice in your Voice settings, go back to dictionary and voice dictionary, then add the pronounciation you wish to hear.

I hope this helps.

Hi All,

I use NVDA with three different languages: english, french and spanish. So, my question is because in certain words, "facebook" for example, NVDA's dictionary is setup to read the word as it should sound in spanish, that would be feisbuk. If I want to read the same word with the english voice and don't want the same pronunciation than in spanish, how should I proceed?

Thanks in advance, best regards.

Need assistance with NVDA, serial terminal connection, and braille

Ian Stenseng <IStenseng@...>
 

I’m working on making a scale with serial output accessible to speech output and braille users by connecting it to a Windows 10 computer running NVDA. I’m using PuTTY as the terminal client at the moment. I can get the output to voice, but it doesn’t update the braille display. Does anyone have suggestions for a more compatible terminal application?

Re: Link for downloading Windows Live Mail for Windows 7

Link for downloading Windows Live Mail for Windows 7

 

Hello all,

My colleague is trying to install Windows Live Mail on a user's machine with Windows 7. But the installer that he was able to find is an online one and it throws an error on the screen for selecting the components to install. On Microsoft's website, it informs us that the product is discontinued and does not offer a download link. Some weeks ago, I think someone here posted a link for downloading the installer for Windows Live Mail for Windows 7, but since I don't use that e-mail client, I did not save the link for future reference. Could someone who has the link at hand provided here, so I can give it to my colleague to install it on that machine? The user in question has grown accustomed to Windows Live Mail and it would be challenging to teach him to work with another e-mail client (e.g. Thunderbird).

Thanks much in advance!

Re: Doing proposals for new functionality

Yes even with a little bit of info from Jamie, I still find as an occasional user of github just to report issues, a bit of a nightmare. Its far too cluttered with stuff the average issue reporter should avoid as hitting the wrong link can get you lost in jargon filled pages of stuff aimed at programmers, at least in my view. Trac worked much better for the novice and occasional user than github, which is trying to be everything to everybody.
For example, the other day I was asked how to download a file included on an issue from 2014 of mine. I went there and though I could see refs to the file, I could not find any sign of it on a download link. My conclusion is that this may well have been an old import from Trac, and the file was not imported. On the other hand it might just be us being extra thick through lack of understanding of course!

Hi Jordy,

As Brian has said, GitHub is the best place. If you go straight to

Issues can be bugs, feature requests, that sort of thing. As mentioned,
you do need a GitHub account to post, and I'll note the idea about making
our documentation on that better too, thanks!

I do not know if it's Github, or NVAccess, or a combination of the two but
the documentation on Github regarding the process for adding a feature

I'd also use the search box that shows up at the top, and is pre-populated

pertain to what you intend to propose in case it is already proposed.
Better to add on to an existing issue if you have specific additions than
to create a new one.

When providing Drop Box links, change the dl=0 to dl=1.  This will allow the file to be downloaded directly without a page coming up first.  To those who are going to use this link, change the 0 to a 1 at the end so the download will start after you follow the link without a page coming up first.

I just wrote up how to play music  from a folder in VLC Media player.

Plus also useing the applications menu and added in also how to set it

It is a rough draft but can send to you if wanted. Hopefully it is easy

to follow. Later on i will add it to the VLC Media player tutorial and

move it to its own page that comes off the nvda tutorials for other

programs page.

 

 

I have been upgrading a couple of computers today 3 or so to the 1703

So in the spare time wrote up that section more because i use the

Hi


it looks as though the attachment was stripped out of the email.


I have put it into a drop box account of which i will put in the link to get it. The drop box link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/887xgrwjk4pgjmj/VLC%20media%20player.docx?dl=0

It will stay there for 24 hours then i will remove it. It is in a docx format but if some one wants it put into the email for the list let me know.

Hi guys,

I would really like that tutorial as well for VLC. I use VLC for DVDs and for listening to music. I would love to know how to play an entire folder of music.

Thanks a lot.

Hi nasrin

 

 

I had a little bit of a play with VLC Media player for playing music. My

self i use winamp for my music player and VLC for watching DVDs

 

 

I just wrote up how to play music  from a folder in VLC Media player.

Plus also useing the applications menu and added in also how to set it

in the auto play menu.

 

 

It is a rough draft but can send to you if wanted. Hopefully it is easy

to follow. Later on i will add it to the VLC Media player tutorial and

move it to its own page that comes off the nvda tutorials for other

programs page.

 

 

I have been upgrading a couple of computers today 3 or so to the 1703

build of Windows 10.

 

So in the spare time wrote up that section more because i use the

program also.
