Date   

Re: is there a clock add on?

Quentin Christensen
 

For the time, press NVDA+F12.  The NVDA key is usually INSERT by default, or you can set it to CAPS LOCK which is useful on some laptops.

If you press NVDA+F12 twice quickly, you get the date.

NVDA+T will actually read the title bar of the current window.

If you're interested in additional training on using NVDA, we have a training module available now called "Basic Training for NVDA" which you can get in either electronic text (it comes in four variants so you should be able to read it with just about anything), DAISY audio or hardcopy Braille.  See http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/ for details.

Kind regards

Quentin.

If you just want to check the time, hold down the NVDA and presss the letter T.

The Goldwave Editor seems to work for mp3/wav. I have no idea about the other though. I'd have thought that youtube would have some kind of checbox if you had no video content, that would seem sensible then it could just display a caption.
Of course sense has never come into many computer related things.

Subject: [nvda] File Format Converter Recommendations


Dear all,
I am currently in search of any accessible freeware to convert MP3 or
Wav files into MP3 or FLV files for YouTube video uploading related
purposes. I found several online options, but uploading 117 mb .wav
files and downloading a similarly sized converted version back is too
resource-hungry a process in my view. Therefore, could you recommend
me any free and accessible programs that would enable me to convert a
versatile range of file formats offline?
In addition to the above question, I am also curious about whether a
directly converted Wav to FLV file would be accepted as a YouTube
video, as I am informed that YouTube compulsorily requires some slight
visual or image content to be present even in the .flv video file
format, an information about which I reserve my skepticisms, and on
which I thus request your insights and inputs.
Thanks.

NVDA+F10

Now I've got to get the hang of this in JAWS, too. My

Matthew,

 

Thanks for the response!

 

No, I  don’t have any toolbars enabled. Restarting Outlook does not affect the problem either.

 

It’s as if there was a “curtain” over the first 54 messages. The 55th message is visible as normal but the 54th is not. Since the problem stays with the messages when I move the whole block of 150 messages to another folder, it must be that there is some characteristics of the messages that causes NVDA to stop reporting the information on each message until it gets to the bottom of the “curtain”

 

Do please keep the responses coming!

 

 

All the best,

  1. Move to the folders list, move out of the current folder, then back.

Another work around to try would be to move to the folders list, move out of the current folder, then back.  You can try both and use whichever works or, if they both work, use the method you prefer.. 

 

Also, control home and end are not the correct commands to use in a list or tree view.  Home and end are.  If you use control home and end. you will move to the top or bottom of the list or tree view, but the item you move to will not be selected.  using home and end moves you to and selects the first or last item and is consistent with the behavior of using the up and down arrow keys, that is, move and select.  Control home and end are correct commands for edit fields such as in word processors.

Subject: [nvda] Unreadable message titles in Inbox list

 

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

No these are unreadable in many clients. I suspect some kind of character

Has anyone else had a problem reading the file name and date of download at the Preview History link?  I've seen this problem with windows 10 version 1703 build 16186.

I can check or uncheck the button.  If I press the enter key it will be collapsed if uncollapsed or uncollapsee if already collapsed.  Nothing else happens.  If I tab once I go to the help tab.

Re: how to select a specific large text in nvda in ms word

 

 ,

            You beat me to the NVDA+f9 and NVDA+f10 pairing by mere moments, and I was playing with same in MS-Word 2010.

            You are correct that if you prefer to use the Windows Copy (Ctrl+C) command once the text is selected this behaves just like NVDA+F10 struck twice quickly if you're in a text editing program.

             Now I've got to get the hang of this in JAWS, too.  My clients who do a lot of writing often want to know how to get precise "large chunks" selected in the middle of documents that don't necessarily start or end at paragraph or line boundaries.

Re: how to select a specific large text in nvda in ms word

Gene
 

It sounds as though that will do what is wanted.  I hadn't thought of applying it in this way but you could mark the beginning of something, then find the end however you want, even by searching for something, and using the end marker when you get to the right place. 
 
If you are going to do this, you should be in object navigation mode.  You will be if you haven't changed it since you started NVDA.

Hello all,

Actually, Gene, there is such a command in NVDA. NVDA+F9 to mark the beginning of the selection and NVDA+F10 to mark the end of the selection. Note, that NVDA+F10 will select even the character on the right of the text caret/cursor, and not only to the character on the left of the caret/cursor. So, you use standard text navigation commands to go to the place from which you want to start the selection, press NVDA+F9 to mark that position, again use standard text navigation commands to go to the place in which you want to end the selection and press NVDA+F10 there. Pressing once NVDA+F10 will only complete the selection. If you want to also copy the selected text, you'll have to press it twice. But in text editors like MS Word, NotePad and NotePad++ for example, pressing it twice is not needed - the text is normally selected (unlike how it is done by NVDA in virtual buffers) and you can press Control+C to copy the selected text. You can press NVDA+Shift+Up Arrow to check what text has been selected. Note, that the "NVDA" key is normally (with a "Desktop" keyboard layout set in NVDA) the INSERT key.

As far as I know, there isn't a comparable command.  If you move to where you want to select text and hold the shift and do page down, you will select text much more quickly.  You can also probably hold the down arrow key and select text more slowly but still much more pleasantly than repeatedly pressing down arrow fifty or one-hundred times or more.  You can move down quickly in the ways I described.  then if you move too far, hold the shift key and move up until where you get to where you want selection to end.  Moving up unselects what you have selected and are now moving back through to the point where you stop moving back.  You can check to see where you are by releasing shift and using the screen-review command, read current line.  then hold the shift again and move more in whatever direction you wish.  you can use all the movement commands, right and left arrow, up and down arrow page up and down, etc.

Subject: [nvda] how to select a specific large text in nvda in ms word

Hi listers,
I asked this question from many nvda experts but no one has answered
me properly. actually i wanna switch to nvda because jaws stucks much
in ms wword but i need some keys to know in nvda. Kindly tell me how
may I select a specific large text in nvda which is neither at the top
of the document to be selected by ctrl shift home or at the end to be
selected by ctrl shift end, the text is at the middle , in the middle
somewhere. how can i do this in nvda? shift down arrow is too long
process as the text is large. I often do this work and in jaws i
accomplish it by temporarily marking the place from where that
specific text is starting and then i press insert space then m to
select all text from that temporary placemark to the current position
of the text. kindly tell me the comparable command in nvda. it will
make my switch easy. Thanks.
