Hi


If you want to delete the app data? for nvda press the windows key and the letter R then type %appdata% then press the enter key.


one of the folders will be for nvda. you can either delete it out or go into the folder locate the nvda.ini file then rename it old which some do but find it easier just to delete the directory. Then use the alt  f4 key to close that window. then reinstall from the portable copy..


does the font stuff work on the portable copy correctly?

Well make a portable coppy of nvda and run it.

then go to %appdata% find the nvda folder and nuke it.

next uninstall and reinstall nvda but the first option should wipe your
settings.

I had issues with flash fxp that just didn't work, and I just ended up
removing the settings file folder which came from older backups, redid
the settings and put that back in.

SPL Help? Might need the addon to fix this?

Christopher-Mark Gilland <clgilland07@...>
 


Guys,
 
If anyone, anyone at all, on this list, anyone! uses the most recent version of Station Playlist Studio either pro or Standard, doesn't matter, either with, or without the NVDA addon, and is connecting to an Icecast2 server, not a shoutcast server, then will you please write me off list? I desperetly need some help with NVDA and getting this damn thing configured. Nothing I do's working, and I suspect, part of it is the encoder config dialog reading like crap.
 
I just need a few pointers.
 
I can further explain when you write me privately.
 
 
Chris.

Hi Pranav,

I've never had a lot of success with Grammarly with the keyboard (for a mouse user, it works great, it highlights grammatical errors in many places, including forms you are filling in on the web).  A similar service, ProWritingAid, has a screen reader accessible interface: https://prowritingaid.com/en/Analysis/Editor?screenReaderFriendly=true 

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: How to Retrieve Purchased Copies of NV Access Tutorials

Hi David,

Apologies for the delay in replying.  We are working on making it a bit easier to find, but you should be able to log in to your account at http://nvaccess.org/my-account and then go to downloads.

Sorry for the difficulties, please do bear with us while we slowly work on updates to the site!

Kind regards

Hello.

Several months ago, I purchased a copy of the NVDA with Microsoft Word tutorial from the NV Access shop. I have since downloaded the epub-formatted file and have used it with Voice Dream Reader on my iPhone. However, I wanted to download the Word version to be used in MS Word on my Windows desktop and, even after logging into the shop from checkout, finding the downloadable version seems nearly impossible. I guess I'm wondering what the procedure is for redownloading an already purchased version of the tutorial from the NV Access shop. Many thanks.

Re: Incorrect Keystroke in Excel Training

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Rob,

Thanks so much for pointing this out!  It's true that ideally any errors would be picked up prior to release, however at least with electronic material, making a correction like this is relatively easy to do.  I have fixed the master copy here and will repackage it so that as of shortly, anyone who downloads the material (either those who purchase it in the future, or those who have already purchased it who download it from now) will have the updated version.

Thank you again for picking up the error, and indeed, if you do come across anything else that doesn't look right, please do let me know!

Kind regards

Quentin.

In section 3.7
"Adding Headers"
an incorrect keystroke is given.
The text states:

To set the column containing row headers, move to the first cell that contains a row heading. Next, press NVDA+control+r. In the plant example, column A contains the name of the plant in each row. Setting this as the row headers means NVDA reads the name of each plant while navigating down the rows.

This keystroke is incorrect. the paragraph should read:

To set the column containing row headers, move to the first cell that contains a row heading. Next, press NVDA+shift+r. In the plant example, column A contains the name of the plant in each row. Setting this as the row headers means NVDA reads the name of each plant while navigating down the rows.

The text should be corrected, or should have an erata page at leats, with this information.

Re: Incorrect Information in Excel

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Rob,

Sorry to chime in late, but glad the others were able to help you!  Re reporting cell coordinates, from memory, the original behaviour of that setting a number of years ago was that it only affected tables in Word and the Web.  Excel coordinates were always announced.  In 2012.2 it was changed so that NVDA respected that setting in Excel, meaning if it isn't checked, you no longer get coordinates reported in Excel.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: query

Chris Mullins
 

Hi Anthony

Use the h and shift+h key to jump between the section headings within the manual then you can just read the parts you are interested in using the arrow keys.  Use NVDA key+downarrow to start NVDA reading continuously.  When continuous reading is in effect, you can use the shift key like a pause/play button or the control key to stop continuous reading mode.

To move around within a table control, you navigate using Control+alt+arrow key commands.  Up/down arrows are used to navigate rows and left-right for columns.  Don’t forget, you must hold down control+Alt then press the appropriate arrow key to move around a table.

 

Cheers

Chris
