Re: Outlook Mail Problem

Ralph Boersema
 

Although the view in my microsoft exchange folder is not the same as in my Personal POP folders, all efforts to change the view has not resulted in any solution.

I hope someone can discover what is going on.

Brian,

Thanks! I think you are on to something. I have given a name to the view I use for all other folders. Do you have a suggestion for how to apply this view to the microsoft exchange folders? When I find the option " Apply this view to other folders," it is not available. When I go to view modifications in the microsoft exchange folders it does not list that view as an option.

Warmly,
Ralph

Does each account have its own view settings?
If so could it be that its actually been configured differently being a new account?

Dear All,

I am using Windows 10 and Outlook in Office 2016. I have generally been able to work with Outlook Mail reasonably well. However, recently a problem has arisen that I can't seem to resolve. One of my email accounts is a Microsoft exchange account. When I first set it up, NVDA navigated through these folders in the same way as other folders. Then, I needed to delete this account and then set it up again. This was for reasons relating to the Office 365 that our company uses. In other words, setting up this account anew had nothing to do with the Outlook installed on my computer. Since doing this, however, my navigating through the mail list has gone wacky:

1. I cannot navigate from one message to another using up and down arrows.
The only way to move through the list is by using ctrl + up or down arrows.
2. When I delete a message I get jumped down to a message of about a week ago.
3. When I send out a message NVDA does not go to the next message, but to the folder.

All of the folders not associated with the exchange account continue to work normally and show no problems.

Warmly,
Ralph

Not sure what you mean by unlimited, but it costs 9.99 a month, so it isn't free, but as far as I know, there are no restrictions on usage time.

Re: NVDA on a cheap tablet?

I have done that before with no problem so long as you regularly do disk cleanup including the option to cleanup system files too. That way you get rid of any windows.old files on the internal drive because they can take up around 20GB of drive space just by themselves.

hi

I noticed using NVDA resource monitor addon that windows10 home 32bit with the apps and stuff I demand of it... its using an average of 1gb ram, about 900mb sitting on the desktop. and with all my apps and stuff installed including documents and stuff I'm only using about 16gb of the total 74gb hard drive space. And this laptop is eleven years old. So based on this I think that NVDA would work great on even the cheapest RCA cambio windows10 home 32bit tablet. They have quad core atom processors in them. So would you agree? but can tablets be upgraded to the creators edition of windows10? windows10 home works for me, don't need the pro features.

libre office enhancements addon?

Josh Kennedy
 

hi

I know that microsoft word and NVDA or I should say microsoft office apps and NVDA work good together. you can read charts and graphs in excel, you can use browse mode, read comments, and much more. But it seems like libreoffice is lagging behind as far as libreoffice enhanced features. So that folks don't have to pay for microsoft office if they don't want to. if libreoffice does not read charts with NVDA, does not have browse mode ability, reading comments, basically it would be nice if the feature set that we see and have in microsoft office for NVDA should also transfer over and be available in the free libreoffice as well. If someone could make an addon which will bring all the nice ms-office enhancements into libreoffice for NVDA this would be useful for me and others who cannot afford ms-office.

thanks

As for the punctuation that is spoken, it depends on how you are reading the tutorial.  If you are arrowing character by character, it will read all punctuation.  If you open the NVDA voice dialog by pressing NVDA+Control+v, tab to the Punctuation symbol level combo box, set it to none and press enter.  This will eliminate the voicing of punctuation when reading line by line using the down arrow and using the ‘Say All’ command (NVDA+Down Arrow).

Do you understand that all commands such as control NVDA key s and Control NVDA key v are used without going into the menus?  You can get to the same settings in the menus but such commands are shortcuts that bypass the menus.  You can use them anywhere.  You aren't in NVDA when you use them.  You could be on the desktop, in a program, almost anywhere. 

 

In the menus, you would get to such settings by opening the menus, then down arrowing to preferences and pressing enter.  Then down arrow to either synthesizer and press enter or voice settings and press enter.  It sounds as though you would save yourself a lot of time and trouble by working with a good NVDA tutorial such as the one I sent a link to a number of days ago.

Help moving between header and footer sections

Kara Goldfinch <kara.louise18@...>
 

Hi all.

I am currently working my way through NVAccess' excellent MS Word tutorial, and have ran into a problem when editing headers or footers.

Keep in mind I'm using word 2016 as part of my office 365 subscription.

The tutorial says that the tab key moves you from the left section, to the centre then to the right. However, in word 2016 it seems to just insert tab stops.

I remember this work correctly in word 2007, so something must have changed since then.

Does any of you know how to move between the sections now?


All the best

Re: nvda skipping pages in microsoft word?

Giles Turnbull
 

Daniel, I think you are being over-restrained when you describe it as an 'interesting' problem! I had this problem and it drove me absolutely crazy!! It took me ages to find out what was going on, and it turned out to relate to the view setting. I don't know why the pages get skipped (for me it skipped every other page, so p2, 4, 6 etc) and the answer that works for me is to go to the view menu and change to draft view.

An annoyance for me now is thatI can't set Word to open by default in draft view, and that seems to be a common annoyance to sighted Word users as much as blind users, but switching into draft view each time I open a document is much less of a headache then not being able to read every other page.

Hope that helps :)

Giles


Re: strange problem

Chris Mullins
 

Hi Anthony

The command to set speech to Talk, Beep or off is NVDA+s, the control key is not used.  NVDA+Control+s is a different command which opens the synthesizer selection dialog.  Please understand the order in which you press the Control and NVDA modifier keys is irrelevant, you have to hold them down whilst you press a standard key such as in this case the letter s.  It’s only then the keycode is passed to the computer from the keyboard.

As for the punctuation that is spoken, it depends on how you are reading the tutorial.  If you are arrowing character by character, it will read all punctuation.  If you open the NVDA voice dialog by pressing NVDA+Control+v, tab to the Punctuation symbol level combo box, set it to none and press enter.  This will eliminate the voicing of punctuation when reading line by line using the down arrow and using the ‘Say All’ command (NVDA+Down Arrow).

Hi gene

 

According to the tutorial the shortcut to access synthesizers is control NVDA s, and when someone else told me to press NVDA control s, it worked, and the same with the voices.

 

I’m so sorry if I wasn’t very clear in my previous email.

 

But I must admit that you were, and still are of a great help for me and support with the info you have sent me.

 

If I may asking you again, is there a way of how to turn off something for a shorttime in NVDA to stop reading such as comas, dots and many others, when I’m listening to a tutorial?

 

Because they don’t lent me concentrate enough.

 

Many thanks once again for your help and sorry for the trouble I’m giving you.

 

Kindest regards

Hi gene

I tried to use those shortcuts control nvda s, and control nvda v, but they didn’t work.

Then somebody else sent me another form, for synthesizers I have to press control nvda s, for voices I should use control nvda v, and they worked that way.

Do you understand that all commands such as control NVDA key s and Control NVDA key v are used without going into the menus?  You can get to the same settings in the menus but such commands are shortcuts that bypass the menus.  You can use them anywhere.  You aren't in NVDA when you use them.  You could be on the desktop, in a program, almost anywhere. 

 

In the menus, you would get to such settings by opening the menus, then down arrowing to preferences and pressing enter.  Then down arrow to either synthesizer and press enter or voice settings and press enter.  It sounds as though you would save yourself a lot of time and trouble by working with a good NVDA tutorial such as the one I sent a link to a number of days ago.

Hi rosemarie

 

I’m so sorry for the trouble I might have given you, but just to let you know that finally I managed to find out what was the problem.

 

Last time I went in to the menu, I entert the in put section and I pressed the space bar on the first item without knowing what was going to happen,

 

That’s why I couldn’t access the synthesizers.

Hi, Anthony,


NVDA control S just changes the synthesizer. If you want to go to either speak, beep or no speech, it's NVDA plus U.


Hope this helps.

you are not issuing commands c orrectly.  You must be sure that both control and NVDA key are help at the same time,  Then press the other letter while holding control and NVDA key.  Whatev er you are doing, you are actually issuing the command NVDA key s.  That command changes speech to three options:
off, beep, and speak.  If you issue the command correctly, it will do what is expected.

Hello, there's a keystroke for this action. While you hold pressed

Hello Bhavya,

Yes. I agree in that the speech ring in NVDA is much more flexible.

I think, however, that it would be desirable to make it possible to attach keystrokes/input gestures to each of the possibilities i.e. rate, volume, etc. We should not do it as default but just make the scripts discoverable from the Input Gestures feature.

Wha do you all think?

Emne: ***SPAM*** Re: [nvda] Keystroke to adjust speech rate

Hi Daniel,
NVDA's Synth Settings Ring is much more flexible than the JAWS feature you describe. Not only can it handle changing speech rate on the fly, but all the other voice settings NVDA has to offer. NVDA+Ctrl+arrow keys in case of the Desktop keyboard layout, and NVDA+Ctrl+Shift+arrow keys in case of the laptop keyboard layout is what you require. The said keys (depending on your keyboard layout) along with the left and right arrows will toggle through the various settings you can quickly interact with through the Synth Settings Ring. You can alternate the left and right arrow keys with the up and down arrow keys when NVDA has announced the voice setting you desire to modify, and clearly, the up arrow is an increment and the down arrow is a decrement.
How this relates to your enquiry is that if you toggle to the Rate setting in the Synth Settings Ring, you effectively have a keyboard shortcut in place to only rapidly change your speech rate from
anywhere: NVDA+Ctrl(+Shift on a laptop)+up/down arrows to increase/decrease NVDA's speech rate.
Thanks.

Hi,



With a user who is migrating from ZT to possibly NVDA, I would like to
show

how to change speech rate, but I can’t find a way of assigning a
keystroke to that function.



Has anyone come up with a solution to make a hot key to adjust speech
rate instead of having to go into the Voice dialog NVDA+Ctrl+v and
then tab to the speech rate option and adjust using the arrow keys?



Thanks in advance.

As I recall, and I haven't used JAWS to any extent for years, the JAWS command is one command but it is not just a one key command.  I believe it is a two or three key command.  If your intent is to change voice settings and then save them, it's not worth worrying about the one extra step NVDA requires.  If you change the voice settings, to make the change permanent, save the change as you would save any settings changes you want to be permanent.  Issue the command NVDA control c to save the current configuration.  But be sure that is what you want to do.  If you issue the command, any other changes you have made will be saved as well, whether you intend to save them or not.

Hello!

Sorry, but you are doing something wrong...
The command you talk is only NVDA+S...

Hi gene



Many thanks for your great support, you can’t imagine how good you explained to me how to turn on and off the punctuation.



Withregards the other thing, because evrytime I used the control, NVDA s, it allows you to change the synthesizer to either talk, beep or silence.



I hope you will be able to understand what I mean this time.



Kindest regards



Anthony

control NVDA key v. Then tab to the punctuation settings and set them to none. Then tab to and activate the ok button. Once you want to return the punctuation settings to what they were before, either do the same thing again and change them back or use the command control NVDA r. When you do this, you will hear, configuration applied and the settings from your permanently saved settings will again be used.



What I said earlier is that you said that control NVDA s and control NVDA key v didn't work. You then said that someone told you to use the same commands and they work. I don't know what you meant to say. I mentioned it in a previous message because I couldn't tell if you understood what commands to use since you wrote the same commands when you said they didn't work and that they did.

Hi gene



According to the tutorial the shortcut to access synthesizers is control NVDA s, and when someone else told me to press NVDA control s, it worked, and the same with the voices.



I’m so sorry if I wasn’t very clear in my previous email.



But I must admit that you were, and still are of a great help for me and support with the info you have sent me.



If I may asking you again, is there a way of how to turn off something for a shorttime in NVDA to stop reading such as comas, dots and many others, when I’m listening to a tutorial?



Because they don’t lent me concentrate enough.



Many thanks once again for your help and sorry for the trouble I’m giving you.



Kindest regards



Anthony

You gave exactly the same commands when you said they didn't work and that they did work.

Hi gene

I tried to use those shortcuts control nvda s, and control nvda v, but they didn’t work.

Then somebody else sent me another form, for synthesizers I have to press control nvda s, for voices I should use control nvda v, and they worked that way.

Kindest regards

Anthony

Do you understand that all commands such as control NVDA key s and Control NVDA key v are used without going into the menus? You can get to the same settings in the menus but such commands are shortcuts that bypass the menus. You can use them anywhere. You aren't in NVDA when you use them. You could be on the desktop, in a program, almost anywhere.







In the menus, you would get to such settings by opening the menus, then down arrowing to preferences and pressing enter. Then down arrow to either synthesizer and press enter or voice settings and press enter. It sounds as though you would save yourself a lot of time and trouble by working with a good NVDA tutorial such as the one I sent a link to a number of days ago.

Hi rosemarie



I’m so sorry for the trouble I might have given you, but just to let you know that finally I managed to find out what was the problem.



Last time I went in to the menu, I entert the in put section and I pressed the space bar on the first item without knowing what was going to happen,



That’s why I couldn’t access the synthesizers.



Thanks once again for your help.



Kindest regards



Anthony

Hello, Anthony,



NVDA control S is what you hit to go to a different synthesizer. NVDA control V is what you hit forchanging the voice.



Hope this helps.

Hello all



I tried to access the synthizer area to change the voice, but only the microsofft platform is showing me.



Also evrytime I tried the command control key plus NVDA plus v, nothing happens.



Can somebody please explain to me what I should to correct this problem?



Thanks in advance

Hi, Chris,

That's wild! I don't know what made the insert key work correctly but I'm
glad it's fine now.

Hello guys.

You're not going to believe this one!

I woke up this morning, started up nvda, and all of a sudden, my insert key
on the numpad started working correctly. Would you believe it.

I wonder what in the world caused it to all of a sudden start working?

Does anyone happen to know?

This is just getting more weird by the minute!

Thanks.

Chris.
