I think Netflicks works well with NVDA. There's a tutorial on working with Netflicks on Gene NZ's site.

Re: Reading footnotes in LibreOffice with NVDA

Jason White
 

Serious accessibility issues have recently been reported in LibreOffice under Linux (see the archives of the Orca mailing list for details). I don't know how their Windows accessibility stands at the moment. Microsoft Word is the only word processor that I have tried in which features such as change tracking and comments are accessible to screen reader users. Apple's Pages is improving in this area and it may become an alternative for those who use a Mac. Google Docs may also be an alternative for some users. I haven't performed a detailed feature comparison, but the reviews which I have read indicate that Microsoft Office is still well ahead of the functionality available in Google's G-Suite or Apple's iWorks. LibreOffice is closer in regard to features, while also having the advantage of being free and open-source software, but its accessibility has considerable room for improvement (based both on what I've read and what I've experienced).

As long as that pc is fine then you don't have an issue.

Unfortunately whatever you change it to, like computer is a well used word.
It claims it can only be amazon or echo on my instructions.

No my way works well as one does not encounter alexa very often in normal screenreader use apart from the app or nasty people who email me with Alexa set a recurring alarm for 3 AM

Re: Jeff’s NVDA add on repository

I thought we had answered that already. It is really up to you. Its not sanctioned by anybody in authority, but I've never heard of any bad ones being up there. I'm sure he takes such steps as needed to check them out if they aware not on the main site. You have to ask this question though. Why are they not on the main site if there is not problem with them?
Often this may be because they are quite old or may have been written to get over a certain problem which is not mass market. However it is very easy in any kind of script language, to expose parts of the system to naughty people who want to get at your data, so you really have to make your own mind up at the time if its worth it.

Re: using outlook how do you get to find out how many messages are in a folder using NVDA

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Interesting! I’ve never used that command before! It tells me that I have 60 unread and 40 in normal view. What does that mean?

 

My usual way to do it is to press the End key alone. This brings me to the last message in the message box. To hear how many there are, I have to listen to the details of the message and its sender , etc., until I finally hear “60 column1”.

 

When I count the messages, I find that there are indeed 60 messages but only 45 are unread not 60 as reported by NVDA+End! Perhaps I should log this in GitHub?

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

We all on this list owe a great deal of gratitude to Gene NZ for all the knowledge he is always sharing here on the list!

Thank You! All for all of your great suggestions and advice!!!

Video streaming services and NVDA

Don H
 

Are there any of the free or pay for Vidio streaming services that work well with NVDA?

Thanks


Re: Way Off Topic!!!

Gene
 

As I said, there are utilities that may allow you to delete the files.  Some people boot into Linux to delete files in such cases.  That may be an option as well but you may not want to fool around with it yourself. 
 
I don't know if there are other options.

Hello:

    When I try to delete them with file explorer.  Or, for that matter, any other file management software.  When trying to use the wipe/shred/destroy function I get a file not accessible/file does not exist/file not available error messages!

    So, I guess I'm stuck with having all those windows.old files on my machine.

    Today I upgraded from win8.1 to win10 and the windows.old family has now grown to seven directories!

    I have been using PCs since the days of DOS 4.0 to the present and this one is very hard to understand why it's happening?

    Thank You! For all your help!

I'm sure there is a way to delete them without using Windows cleanup.  You don't have to reformat just to get rid of such folders. Have you tried deleting them using Windows Explorer?  If that doesn't work, there are utilities that allow files to be deleted that are being kept from doing so by the operating system showing them as in use when they aren't. 
 
Others may have more information.

Hello:

     The windows.old directories will not go away no matter how I try to
get rid of them with disk cleanup!

     Disk cleanup sees them and the check box is checked for deleting. 
However! Disk cleanup seems to be unable/unwilling to delete them!

     I currently have four windows.old on the root directory. That is
why I may need to do a fresh/clean install of any windows OS and for
that there needs to be a disk reformat!

     Being blind and living alone really s___s!!!

     Thank You! for reading my message!

Re: Reading footnotes in LibreOffice with NVDA

 

Please reply if it works.

I may concidder it later on if it is.

Jarte works well but if I need to switch to another office app, I don't mind paying 80 dollars for full office.

Its free and bar a watermark on printed files is fine.

Now its 30 a year and maybe cheaper per month I forget but you can
subscribe a pc and some mobile devices to it.

Or if on pc is all you will use it on its 80 dollars for a lifetime pc
licence.

As long as that pc is fine then you don't have an issue.

I think unless you get a key and just install it on another pc afterward.

Thats cheaper than office but has anyone used this.

She has an ios and an android device and since she is cloud based,
linking her cloud to her computer with ms apps is not a bad thing I
guess since she has a 3 device chain.

The only people that don't are those on single devices like myself.

if you need to support recent versions of odt format, you need to have

Re: Reading footnotes in LibreOffice with NVDA

 

www.wps.com

I havn't tried this it does a bit more than standard office, document and pdf conversion and a few things.

It seems that from forums a lot of people that switched from ms office line didn't like the direction of libre or open office families and switched to this.

In one case online the software has been reportedly installed all over the place and is not good, however, it was only 1.

I do know from security sites I read thats its been round since 1997 and that it is chinese.

So it is almost as old as modern office office 95 and earlier excluded.
