Hi,
Office 365 is the subscription service that gives you access to latest Office builds. In other words, yes, Office 2016 is usable with NVDA.

Re: IE

Well, I noticed its a bit flaky as well but not used it for ages myself so wonder if a recent security update to IE has screwed something up.
I'm back on firefox but that gives issues in the latest next snapshot, slowing things down.

I haven't encountered the slow down requiring multiple NVDA+up arrow
presses, but it could be worth investigating particularly if we can narrow
down when it is happening.

If there is a want, as maybe by the comments there may be, to have the
ability to disable phonetic speaking, maybe it could be at least an addon,
such as "NoBeepsSpeechMode", if not a selectable option in NVDA itself.

Would someone like to file an issue?

Latest next has firefox issues

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

It seems from my tests that search fields do not obey the rules in the browse menu on when to come out of focus mode any more.

Set them so you can cursor over edit areas and can here the mode change. In the previous snap this worked fine in the google and other search fields, but not in the one I downloaded yesterday. Ordinary fields seem unaffected.
Further, there seems to be something peculiar in that firefox can use a lot of processor on some pages with the next snaps running often, in a slower machine resulting in a complete halt to anything at all.
I've tried firefox from48 to the latest here with little difference in effect. Its fine on my four core, but core 2 duo and single core machines are most affected, as one might imagine of course.
The first issue with not being able to cursor out of a search field is the same on 7 and xp though cursor left does allow one out without tabbing.

Dear Folks,

There may be others who have this issue with Outlook, but since Joseph Lee has just been able to confirm my (and Julia's) problem with reading the list in some Outlook folders, I would like to especially address this question to him. But, please let's chime in if anyone else can say something about this.

Joseph, I wonder if you can reproduce a problem I have encountered with various versions of Outlook. Currently, I am using Office 2016. It's actually more an annoyance than a problem. Here goes:

In composing messages, I may hear unrelated words when I move from one field to another before the correct text is read. This happens frequently, but unpredictably, as far as I can figure (but, of course, that's not very far). In writing this message, for example, I just went back to the top and then jumped up to the subject field, using shift-tab. It read to me, "One inches dear folks subject alt u another outlook issue." On other occasions, but not this time, when I drop back down into the message field, it may first read the subject line of an unrelated email that I have just opened.

Warmly,
Ralph

To avoid this annoyance I go into reader view as soon as I get to an article
I want to read.
That stops any video or sound popping up.
Then there's a button at the bottom to use to go back to non-reader view.

To go to reader view in the newest firefox just press control+alt+r. In
older versions, go to the view menu by hitting alt and then arrow up to
reader view and hit enter.

It seems that if text is on a web site with its class set to
screen-reader-text, firefox and the latest version of NVDA display that text

as one compound word. It does not do this with IE. This is under windows
7. I've yet to try 10.

The results of this bug can be seen on pages like

Re whether to have an add-on for an option or have it in core NVDA code.  That's a discussion we can definitely have, I was just meaning, if someone with the skills and time is interested in this, they can make an add-on now that will do it.  To add it to core takes a little longer (A github issue is the first step), and of course, needs to fight for priority against all the other worthwhile things that could be added, fixed or changed.

Again, I'm not against the idea, just putting my thoughts out there.

Regards

Re: NVDA and MS Office 365

Quentin Christensen
 

As Joseph mentioned, NVDA works well in Office 2016 (365).

Also, if you're interested in learning how to use Word and Excel a bit more in-depth, NV Access have training modules available for both of those programs, which builds on the general skills covered in "Basic Training for NVDA".  All available in the shop: http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi,
Office 365 is the subscription service that gives you access to latest Office builds. In other words, yes, Office 2016 is usable with NVDA.
Cheers,

Noticed that Best Buy has Microsoft Office 365 home edition on sale today for $79.
Does NVDA work well with Office 365?
Thanks

Re: NVDA keeps talking

 

Hi,

What I mean by responsive is this: the version you had no issues whatsoever.

Cheers,

Joseph

Well just open WLM and go to your inbox and NVDA will read everything and you can not stop it from talking. Also it is slow in IE 11. Before NVDA was very responsive. What is going on?

Turn on report indentation and see what happens. It is in the document
formating dialog.

Subject: [nvda] bug in text presentation on the web with firefox

It seems that if text is on a web site with its class set to screen-reader-text, firefox and the latest version of NVDA display that text as one compound word. It does not do this with IE. This is under windows 7. I've yet to try 10.

The results of this bug can be seen on pages like http://lanesaudio.com/examples where both the wordpress theme used, and a tip about playing the audio on that page exists and is read with NVDA but not shown on screen.
