Re: nvda and libreoffice

Rosemarie Chavarria
 

I tried Libre office but found that I like open office much better. The only real drawback I see is that you have to hit control down-arrow to read paragraphs instead ofjust hitting insert down-arrow to do a say all. I can deal with that though.
How do you read the help files in open office? I'd like to learn more about it.

Re: accessible version of Seamonkey?

Hi.

I just went and installed Seamonkey from scratch here, It's been a long time since I used it since I always use Thunderbird portable. Ensure that you're downloading from:
http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/

I'm using jaws at present, but Seamonkey is very similar to Thunderbird and thus rather screen reader friendly for the most part. I'm writing this with it, and this is my first message so hopefully it works. The version I have is 2.39. I wonder if there could be an add-on or interface setting that has made it go all wonky. Did you try redownloading it, are you sure you're downloading from the official site, which appears to be that which I linked above?

Worse come to worse, Thunderbird will do most everything Seamonkey does with no necessity to relearn anything, it is almost exactly the same just no web browser built right in. But I think you can fix it by uninstalling Seamonkey and perhaps deleting your settings folder for Seamonkey so it starts from scratch.
Press windows key+r, type %appdata% and press enter. When the folder opens, find Mozilla and open it. Now find Seamonkey and delete that puppy. Btw, don't hold me responsible if that breaks something else even though it wouldn't make sense for it to do so. Of course, I'd recommend uninstalling seamonkey then deleting that after uninstallation, then reinstall, hopefully if it is a setting that's the problem the setting in question is not stored in the registry?

Good luck and enjoy setting that all up from scratch again! And yes, don't forget about Thunderbird. I've been using it for years, it doesn't seem like it should be too awfully hard a call to switch to that given how similar they are. Granted, I would submit that it shouldn't be necessary, Seamonkey should work fine, definitely is for me.

Lisa,

Sorry, I wasn't quite accurate in my last mail,, but you found the menu
items anyway. In Seamonkey, go to View Menu, then Show / Hide, then
press the right arrow key to start the submenu with the various toolbars
that you can show or hide. There is a further submenu for Website
Navigation, which you can again reach by pressing the right arrow key.

From the main menu bar, for example, if you are at Bookmarks, the
submenu should appear if you press the down arrow. I have no idea why
items are not being spoken by NVDA.

It may be that some settings have got corrupted , in which case it would
be an idea to remove Seamonkey and start again. If NVDA is otherwise
working OK, this may be the best option. I remove programs with Revo
Uninstaller, which looks for relevant files all over your PC, and so may
remove any corrupt material.

To get the current version of seamonkey, version 2.39, go to:
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=seamonkey-2.39&os=win&lang=en-US

That link above should start the installer downloading. In Seamonkey or
Firefox, you will get a dialog box asking you to save the file before
you can run it.

You can't use insert with numpad down arrow.  You have to use insert with down arrow on the main keyboard.

Hi Marvin,

Eh? Which down arrow key are you pressing? It should be the inverted T (non-Numpad) down arrow, as numpad down arrow is reserved for a different feature.

Re: Suggesting several features for GoldWave AddON

 

Hi,
Before I can work on this: for those using GoldWave 5.70, can you confirm if
Alt+1 through 9 are native commands? If not, I'll support that version
(I'll be using 6.x for most of my development). Also, for those who'll be
attending NVDACon 2016 in April, remind me to demo that feature (I'll host a
session for users of my add-ons to have a chat with me).
