Hi, David,

 

This is interesting. I already have the windows 10 app essentials add-on but I'm curious to try out some more of them.

 

Thanks for this site.

Hi guys!

I found the URL that has the say name of product and version NVDA add on.

This site is great, because there are a few older add ons on here that still work great with win10 and latest NVDA. Here is the URL:

http://jeff.tdrealms.com/NVDA.htm

It is called Jeff’s NVDA add on repository or something close to that. The page starts out something like this:

Welcome to my NVDA Add-on Repository.

This page aims to bring together all of the optional components available for the free, open source screen reader known as NVDA.

Before you can install any of the below add-ons, you must first install NVDA.

There are many add ons on there! It is kept up to date, because it says on the site that it was updated in April of this year. Joseph Lee’s Windows 10 app assentials is on there, so it is an up to date web 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).

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.

Has anyone tried wps office at all?

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.

hello again.
previous versions of microsoft office need odt 1.0-1.1
if you need to support recent versions of odt format, you need to
have
microsoft office 2013.

If I may ask, what version of MS Office are you using? Since at

If
you've
got a recent version of Office you should be able to edit and save
ODT
files
in their native ODT format without using Libre Office at all.

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.

Yes and sometimes changing them just makes things more confusing or does not work as expected. Could one of the admins here tell us if it is possible to start a new thread so to speak but keep some of the parts of another one without basically cutting and pasting all over the place.

Re: Reading footnotes in LibreOffice with NVDA

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,
