Blog Post: Top 5 NVDA Tips and Tricks You Need To Know

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,
All programs and software have some of those features which get
mentioned too rarely for what they are worth. Screen layout, audio and
speech feedback for mode changes, customization of all NVDA sound
schemes, the unbound Document Formatting settings shortcuts and the
wide-ranging speech synthesizer support of the NVDA screen reader, the
software package that enables my computer access, are my top 5 picks
for NVDA tips and tricks. Whether you are a novice to NVDA or a
proclaimed screen reading master, learn a few things anew by checking
out my latest Hiking Across Horizons blog post titled ‘Top 5 NVDA Tips
and Tricks You Need To Know’.

Re: Another Outlook Issue

Ralph Boersema
 

I have had the issue for several years and with different Windows, Outlook,
and NVDA versions. I think I did not have it with Outlook Express. I just
tried a different synthesizer and that also did not make a difference.

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

Hi,

I also suggest this utility as it restores the pull down menus to MS Office in Win10.

http://www.addintools.com/office2010/professionalplus/OfficeMenu.exe.  It costs $29 and it is worth the price.

I am using it with MS Office Pro 2013.

I don't know if this is the case in any programs or parts of Windows discussed but are any features lost by reverting in this way?  I don't use Word, but it is so differently organized in ribbon versions and there are so many settings that I can't help but wonder if access to some features or settings is lost.  In Windows Explorer, I gather from the little I've read that there are new functions available and again, I wonder if any are lost.  But if anything is lost anywhere, that should be discussed.

Justin, in the multi-line readonly section of the filezilla interface you should be able to view a form of activity logging, including possible error messages?

Re: accessible podcatchers?

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

I have used the old Juice with manual folder settings in later versions of windows. It can be set up to use any media player so winamp seems to play most stuff.
So find one you like that allows you to use outside media players.
One recent issue of Juice is that some podcasts are starting to use https which Juice cannot cope with so I'll have to lose it soon I suspect so the anser to an accessible auto downloading every couple of hours podcatcher would be great. I did wonder if rss receivers might work but not very well seems to be the answer. Itunes is like sending a battleship to buy a packet of chips.

Hello Folks,

Let me start this off by saying that Windows 10 is great. I have no
problems with it. However, some parts of it just aren't what they used
to be. Here is a list of programs that make Windows 10 behave more
like Windows 7.

Classic Shell:
Classic Shell gives you the old classic start menu, among other things.
http://www.classicshell.net/

Old Task Manager:
When I first updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10, the first thing
that really irritated me was the new task manager. It was slow,
cumbersome and annoying. So, I found a quick, easy and safe way to get
it back. Just download the file, unzip it, run setup, and let it guide
you through the steps. You should choose full installation, and
uncheck the desktop icon check boxes when they come up. Also, once the
task manager is installed, open it by pressing CTRL+Shift+escape. Next
press alt and locate the "options" menu item. Press enter, and locate
the "Hide When Minimized" option and uncheck it by pressing enter.
Next, press alt again, and find the "View" subMenu. Press enter, and
locate the "Update Speed" subMenu and press enter on it. Set this to
normal by locating the menu item and pressing enter. That's it. You
now have the classic task manager from Windows 7 in Windows 10.
http://www.noahcarver.com/files/tm_cfg_win8-win10.zip

UBitMenu (Not Tested Myself but have heard it works) UBitMenu makes
itself a new tab in your MS Office ribbon menu. Just activate this tab
and you have the classic menus from MS Office 2003 in your up-to-date
copy of MS Office.
Note: Although I have not tested this myself, other users have
reported this works with NVDA.
http://www.ubit.ch/software/ubitmenu-languages/

Ribbon Disabler
Ribbon Disabler removes the ribbon tab from Windows Explorer,
replacing it with the classic menu bar. Download the file, and unzip
it. Next, look at the folder. If you are running a 64-bit copy of
Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3 x64". If running a
32-bit copy of Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3".
Once the program opens, click the button labeled "Disable Ribbon

locked Re: about latex and nvda

James AUSTIN
 

Hi Anthony and all

Anthony you beat me to it.

To answer nasrim's question, yes NVDA will work with LaTeX because of the reasons Anthony has already mentioned. I have tried to provide a little more information below, and I hope the moderators will forgive my doing so. If anyone would like further information or has any questions, please feel free to write me off list. I have quite a bit of experience but am by no means an expert.

To add to Anthony's explanation though, LaTeX can give you total control over all aspects of your document. It has been around since C 1975 and is actively maintained and updated. There are versions for Mac OS, Linux and Windows. The Mac version is called MacTEX, the Windows version is called MicTEX and the Linux distribution is called TEXLive. In fact TEXLive is the core of the Mc and Windows versions, but Mac and Windows versions provide graphical applications. I am not sure if the Linux version does.

The nice thing about LaTeX is that because it is plain text with specific symbols and codes that tell LaTeX how to mark up the final document, LaTeX can be written using a plain text app such as NotePad++. LaTeX is also free and the community is very helpful. LaTeX also produces beautiful documents, providing you know what you are doing.

LaTex is very stable and extensible but has a steep learning curve. Initially designed for mathematicians, it can also be used for writing prose. Many in the Humanities now use it to write books and articles. LaTex is used in a range of languages, though I can only speak to its use in English and French. I do not know for example if it is capable of producing an Arabic script.

I think I have probably gone on for long enough, but if anyone has any questions please feel free to write me off list.

Best wishes

James

LaTeX is not a word processor - in that it is not an application which you
run, and it helps you to create documents.

LaTeX is more like a formatting language, where you create a document (using
any text editing software you prefer) containing the text, plus LaTeX commands
to explain how that text should be laid out, and then you compile that
document through the LaTeX program to create the end result (which can be PDF,
or Postscript, or just plain text formatted as you wish).

So, I would say that yes, it is completely accessible, because it's not an
application you need to interact with - you feed in some text, and it produces
text - just like running a compiler for a computer language, only this one is
for human language.

Hope that helps,


Antony.

device. This device is set up to allow ftp connections, and for a few
days it worked on filezilla, but then it just stopped. I contacted the
network, and they told me to use Core FTP, which also has a free
version. No matter what I do, I can't get filezilla to retrieve the
directory, but with Core Ftp, it works just fine. Also, I used to be
able to map this as a network drive in Windows Explorer (on Windows
10), , but when filezilla stopped working, the network drive mapping
also seems to have broken. The only way I can do anything is with Core
FTP. However, from my experience, it is not nearly as easy to use with
NVDA. Lots of unlabeled buttons, things don't always appear as they
should in the tab order, etc. I was just wondering if anyone else has
used this program, and if your experiences are the same. Anythingg I
can enable in options to make it work better? What FTP client are you
all using?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Core FTP

Justin Harris <justin171185@...>
 

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to see if anyone out there is using Core FTP with NVDA. I run an online radio station, and have to download a lot of programs via ftp. I have been doing this for a very long time, using Filezilla, which I find to be very accessible and easy to use. However, one of my program providers recently switched from traditional ftp to a MyCloud device. This device is set up to allow ftp connections, and for a few days it worked on filezilla, but then it just stopped. I contacted the network, and they told me to use Core FTP, which also has a free version. No matter what I do, I can't get filezilla to retrieve the directory, but with Core Ftp, it works just fine. Also, I used to be able to map this as a network drive in Windows Explorer (on Windows 10), , but when filezilla stopped working, the network drive mapping also seems to have broken. The only way I can do anything is with Core FTP. However, from my experience, it is not nearly as easy to use with NVDA. Lots of unlabeled buttons, things don't always appear as they should in the tab order, etc. I was just wondering if anyone else has used this program, and if your experiences are the same.

Antony Stone
 

LaTeX is not a word processor - in that it is not an application which you
run, and it helps you to create documents.

LaTeX is more like a formatting language, where you create a document (using
any text editing software you prefer) containing the text, plus LaTeX commands
to explain how that text should be laid out, and then you compile that
document through the LaTeX program to create the end result (which can be PDF,
or Postscript, or just plain text formatted as you wish).

So, I would say that yes, it is completely accessible, because it's not an
application you need to interact with - you feed in some text, and it produces
text - just like running a compiler for a computer language, only this one is
for human language.

Hope that helps,


Antony.

hi

 

I do have a tutorial on using google chrome with nvda i think it is written and there is a audio version at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html

When you go to that page jump down by headings until you get to the one on using google chrome with nvda.

 

it is not the one which was done by David but some one might post a link to his one as well.

Same here! My new computer will be ten. That's why I'm going to get these things. Does crome work good with win 7? Or does it work better with ten? I know the latest version of NVDA works with it!

Hello Folks,
 
Let me start this off by saying that Windows 10 is great. I have no 
problems with it. However, some parts of it just aren't what they used 
to be. Here is a list of programs that make Windows 10 behave more 
like Windows 7.
 
Classic Shell:
Classic Shell gives you the old classic start menu, among other things.
http://www.classicshell.net/
 
Old Task Manager:
When I first updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10, the first thing 
that really irritated me was the new task manager. It was slow, 
cumbersome and annoying. So, I found a quick, easy and safe way to get 
it back. Just download the file, unzip it, run setup, and let it guide 
you through the steps. You should choose full installation, and 
uncheck the desktop icon check boxes when they come up. Also, once the 
task manager is installed, open it by pressing CTRL+Shift+escape. Next 
press alt and locate the "options" menu item. Press enter, and locate 
the "Hide When Minimized" option and uncheck it by pressing enter.
Next, press alt again, and find the "View" subMenu. Press enter, and 
locate the "Update Speed" subMenu and press enter on it. Set this to 
normal by locating the menu item and pressing enter. That's it. You 
now have the classic task manager from Windows 7 in Windows 10.
http://www.noahcarver.com/files/tm_cfg_win8-win10.zip
 
UBitMenu (Not Tested Myself but have heard it works) UBitMenu makes 
itself a new tab in your MS Office ribbon menu. Just activate this tab 
and you have the classic menus from MS Office 2003 in your up-to-date 
copy of MS Office.
Note: Although I have not tested this myself, other users have 
reported this works with NVDA.
http://www.ubit.ch/software/ubitmenu-languages/
 
Ribbon Disabler
Ribbon Disabler removes the ribbon tab from Windows Explorer, 
replacing it with the classic menu bar. Download the file, and unzip 
it. Next, look at the folder. If you are running a 64-bit copy of 
Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3 x64". If running a 
32-bit copy of Windows 10, run the file called "Ribbon disabler3".
Once the program opens, click the button labeled "Disable Ribbon 
Explorer ". The program should ask you to log off. Do so, Next, log 
back on... and boom. To uninstall, just run the program you ran 
earlier. You will be presented with a button that says "Enable Ribbon 
Explorer". Click it. Again, you should be prompted to log off and back 
on. Your Windows Explorer should look normal again.
http://grossgang.com/utilities/RibbonDisabler.zip
 
Hope these utilities help you. If you have any questions, comments or 
suggestions on more programs to add to this list, please reply.

another one is the  7+ taskbar tweaker

http://rammichael.com/7-taskbar-tweaker

7+ Taskbar Tweaker allows you to configure various aspects of the Windows taskbar.
Most of the configuration options it provides can’t be tweaked using the taskbar properties or the registry.
The tweaker is designed for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

Hi Sam,

 

I am stumped. I doubt the microsoft Access add-in is causing your problems. I wonder, what else gets disabled when you go into safe mode?

 

In addition, what is hardware acceleration set too? Check this in the options dialogue. I can’t remember where the setting is. If it is enabled, disable it and see if this improves things.
