Re: Reading footnotes in LibreOffice with NVDA

 

Well the good news is that if word and excell are all you need the home/student version is ok its 140 dollars in new zealand.

If you need outlook and powerpoint and a few extras thats uping it to 350, even then thats only 200 bucks more for 99% of office.

With sway, todo, lens and onenote freeware, you are basically having to pay in pro version of office access and publisher which to my knowledge not many consumers use at all.

Saying that if you do work in a company situation I'd high recomend seeing if you can get in the home use program thats 30 dollars per office.

Not that its worth much but you get the pro+ which is the enterprise version of office.

Yes you can buy pro plus for 10 bucks on ebay but weather you want to risk piracy prison is your business.

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).

i dont know about the newer versions and also paid version.
i tried free version which was less than 60 mb in that year.
hope that it became accessible until now and someone explaned about
its usage and accessibility.

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.

I'd dearly like her to use free office and software but she is

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.

That does not sound good. I know originally Libra Office and Open
Office and the Symphony office suite were all written in Java, but
much of them now have embeded accessibility, but did wonder if
Java was installed if that might help some parts not accessible

I'd really like another choice than Microsoft Office as they are
pushing people toward toe online product where you have to keep
paying to to get it up todate.
Has read all been sorted in Libra Office yet, ie can nvda see that
there is more text to read after a larrge break outside of a page

i heard that footnotes are completely inaccessible.

does it? I'm thinking that since Microsoft seem to be drifting

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.

Sylvie,

If I may ask, what version of MS Office are you using? Since at
least Office 2010 MS-Word is able to open and save in ODT format.
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: vlc nvda add on commands

Hey Gene,


Absolutely bro!  Your talking gospel!  It sure would make sense. It felt like I was having to be my own language translator when I first started using the program back in the day. I may have a list of the keyboard shortcuts for the VLC media player around here somewhere.  If so I'll put them up.

There are  no commands specifically for the ad on.  the add on announces things that occurred before but without speech so you didn't know that anything was happening or if you did, you had to memorize or guess what.  After the add on is installed open VLC player and tab.  You will tab through lots of items.  To change the state of an item, press enter on it.  The space bar doesn't do anything.  Letters that are short cut commands take actions which are announced.  I don't think the commands you can control by short cut commands are in addition to those you can perform by tabbing.  I think they are some of the same commands.  I don't know how many are provided.  If you get a list of short cuts for VLC Player, you can try various letter shortcuts.  One of them, for example, is shuffle on and off.  The letter r controls this command.  In the list of short cuts, this is described as random.  Wouldn't it be nice if VLC player documentation used the English language as we know it?  The generally accepted name for the command is not random, but shuffle.

Hi NVDA community,

In case you want to know what’s happening in Windows 10 development (and a treat for those who’d like to hear what Windows OneCore voices sound like), here’s an overview of things included in latest Windows 10 preview build. Enjoy.

Hi all,

 

Another item in Windows 10 build progression series, this time on build 16232 is now up:

http://www.josephsl.net/files/WinTen%2016232.mp3

 

Topics covered include:

  • My People
  • GPU activity tracking in Task Manager
  • Narrator user guide
  • Brief overview of new braille support improvements
  • Cloud-based image recognition service
  • Always on scan mode
  • Control+Windows+N to open Settings/Ease of Access/Narrator
  • Settings/Cortana category and other changes
  • Settings/System/About and Remote Desktop configuration changes
  • Status messages for individual updates in Windows Update
  • Settings/Privacy/App requested downloads
  • Full screen mode in Edge
  • Changing URL’s of favorites
  • Volume mixer and universal apps
  • Dictating text in edit fields such as Notepad
  • Emoji panel and keyboard-based emoji entry and search
  • Controlled folder access in Windows Defender Security Center

 

Briefly mentioned:

  • Windows Subsystem for Linux does not require developer mode
  • Grouping app windows in Task Manager
  • Fluent design system
  • Mixed reality and teleportation
  • Video playback settings in Settings app
  • Windows 10 Mobile in maintenance mode
  • Windows Insider Program for Windows Server
  • Changes to branch names (e.g. Current Branch is Semi-Annual Pilot)

 

In addition, the following topics could not be covered due to time constraints (today’s audio guide is an hour long one):

  • Input learning in Narrator (Caps lock+1)
  • Full extent of braille options in Narrator
  • Cortana interaction changes
  • OneDrive files on demand
  • Windows Sonic for Headphones (mostly dealing with hardware setup required)
  • Pinning websites in Edge to taskbar
  • Read aloud in PDF’s and books in Edge
  • Power throttling (hardware setup required)
  • Windows Hello (hardware setup required)
  • Beam/Mixer broadcasting (don’t have an active Xbox Live account)

 

Corrections:

  • In the beginning of the guide I state that the last guide was on build 15048, but it was 15042.
  • I wanted to give a word about my impression of Fall Creators Update but ran out of time. Similarly, I could not include upgrade advice for same reasons.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hello.
The folders named like "Windows.old" must be deleted through Windows disk clean up.
1. Start disk clean up by "local disk c:" properties.
2. Wait for creation the liste of the deletable files, and pres alt+s.
3. Wait for list again.
4. check list items You want to clean. (I always check all items.) for Windows.old folders, check "old Windows installation files".
5. pres "ok", "delete files", and "yes" buttons.
6. wait for cleaning.
That's all.

Hi,


Gene's a good mate. Interesting that this would come up. One of my clients has a system that I'm working on with the very same problem; however, I'm not sure of the procedures to remove the old files, and recover and preserve those that are useful.

I want to make sure I don't damage any of the necessary files that run the current setup.

there is a program that should do it. but the same as you it was made buy Cedric someone and might be called unlocker or something like that will take a look threw some programs when I have some time.

On 09/07/2017 10:10, Brian's Mail list account via Groups.I wrote:
There used to be a program that could delete anything you liked. The way it worked was it presented you with locked or files protected in various ways. You selected them and then it rebooted the computer via some low level, ie non Microsoft system and deleted what you had told it by accessing a text file you had saved vai the program. Unfortunately and this is the really annoying part I cannot remember what it was called but it did give dire warnings about using it to remove files that might be used by windows and then the machine would not reboot.
It used to work well in XP and the dire Vista, but not bothered with it since as now drives are so huge that a little bit of wasted space is not really an issue any more.

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!

Hello All:

How can a totally blind person format a hard disk without
sighted help?

I would like to be able to install windows on a freshly
formatted drive.

For some unknown reason when installing a new version of
windows it will always leave old junk behind! And, it does not matter
if you use disk cleanup to clean out unwanted leftover files. When
you use any file explorer to look at the root directory you will see
that old junk which should have been cleaned is still there!

Thank You! For all your helpful suggestions!!!

Hi


I do not know what happened but in the message on the top line it is meant to say use the windows key + letter E  but the rest is correct.



I do not know what it inserted and how, maybe a wrong key stroke.

Hi


I just tried it on my windows 10 machine and it removed the old windows.old directory.


Use the windows key + letter #

this will bring up where your drives are for example C: drive d: drive and so on.

locate the C: drive then use the applications key on your computer.

go to properties then press the enter key.

Tab to the disk clean up button then press the enter key. it will come up with a selection of stuff to remove. I went through and checked all of the boxes and you need to look for one that say just after the list you have check called Clean up system files button, then press either the space bar or enter key.

another list will come up i went through and checked all of the boxs one of them was for the windows.old directory  I can not remember what it said like windows S or some thing, but any how all of the boxs were check.

  .

I then tabbed to the ok button then pressed the enter key. it asked me if i really wanted to delete every thing that was checked and the amount of space etc.

i said yes it did it trick and after it finished i checked to see if it was gone.


there is no window.old directory now.

the option to get rid of the old directory will only come up if it is there on your c drive. I just can not remember what it called the old directory.


I can have a look on my other computer where i have not removed it yet i think it is still there and then either record the steps on how to do it but this was pretty much the process i did.


hope it helps.

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: My Favorite NVDA add ons and Why!

If people run dangerous add ons, that's their wreckless behavior.  The designers of NVDA are not nannies.  At some point, people are responsible for themselves.

I think nvda should make it not possible to run addons that are not

but it is what I think I can only say that this might make it hard to
test untested addons but thoughts are welcome.   please this is only an

Also, you appear to be assuming the the feature is available with the add on. the description of the program doesn't say that more playback commands are available. It only says that you can move back and forward in playback commands by tabbing and shift tabbing. Unless you have other information, that doesn't indicate whether and what other commands may be available than in the play menu.

Perhaps you can't. If you look at
https://www.vlchelp.com/vlc-media-player-shortcuts/
you will not see either of these listed as shortcut keys in the program. That doesn't mean that they are not available, someone may give the information, but it raises the question of whether these settings can be changed from the keyboard.

Hi


I am in new zealand and use net flix and is accessible with nvda.

There is a written and audio tutorial if i remember right on using it and how to enable the audio description for us.


it is worth the money for me as we do not have any other online streaming services that do audio description here in new zealand.


There may be other places in the world that do I used to use one in the UK but can not think what it is called maybe like bbc i player.


have a look under the nvda tutorials for other programs page for the tutorial on my website i am putting together. it can be jumped down quickly by headings.

Does anyone have comments on pros and cons of buying from nuance instead
of code factory?

I feel like there must be some information I'm missing to justify the
price difference. Also, the code factory product has 3 activation and
the nuance one doesn't mention anything like this.

Thoughts?

Hi Sally,

as a Window-Eyes user I also missed this app to switch synths in NVDA. The
good new is they have a addon for that, called Switch synth and works almost
the same as the one in WE, but without a interface.
You can download it on the addons page of NVDA, I'm very happy with it.

Good afternoon,


Thanks for these two recommendations.


The vocalizer only option is significantly more expensive. What is the
advantage of buying this instead of the code factory bundle?


Also, how do I change synthesizer languages on the fly: without having
to go into the voice menu?


In window-Eyes there was an add on that allowed you to put voices of any
language, synthesizer, or quality  on a rotter and then switch within
that rotter with a single key stroke. This made reading bilingual
textbooks manageable.


I'm happy to restrict myself to a single synthesizer as long as I have
quick and easy language toggling.


Thanks again for insight!

I'd like to make a single purchase and get all three languages.

Which synthesizers have this kind of option?

Alternatively, are there viable multi-lingual voices I should check out?

If you do a Google search for VLC Player Shortcuts, you will find lots of results listing some or all of the short cuts.  If you do such a search for any popular program, you will find such information.  If you do such a search for programs that aren't popular, you still may find such information.

FW: [win10] Audio guide: Windows Insider Preview build 16232 guide posted

 

Hi NVDA community,

In case you want to know what’s happening in Windows 10 development (and a treat for those who’d like to hear what Windows OneCore voices sound like), here’s an overview of things included in latest Windows 10 preview build. Enjoy.

Subject: [win10] Audio guide: Windows Insider Preview build 16232 guide posted

 

Hi all,

 

Another item in Windows 10 build progression series, this time on build 16232 is now up:

http://www.josephsl.net/files/WinTen%2016232.mp3

 

Topics covered include:

  • My People
  • GPU activity tracking in Task Manager
  • Narrator user guide
  • Brief overview of new braille support improvements
  • Cloud-based image recognition service
  • Always on scan mode
  • Control+Windows+N to open Settings/Ease of Access/Narrator
  • Settings/Cortana category and other changes
  • Settings/System/About and Remote Desktop configuration changes
  • Status messages for individual updates in Windows Update
  • Settings/Privacy/App requested downloads
  • Full screen mode in Edge
  • Changing URL’s of favorites
  • Volume mixer and universal apps
  • Dictating text in edit fields such as Notepad
  • Emoji panel and keyboard-based emoji entry and search
  • Controlled folder access in Windows Defender Security Center

 

Briefly mentioned:

  • Windows Subsystem for Linux does not require developer mode
  • Grouping app windows in Task Manager
  • Fluent design system
  • Mixed reality and teleportation
  • Video playback settings in Settings app
  • Windows 10 Mobile in maintenance mode
  • Windows Insider Program for Windows Server
  • Changes to branch names (e.g. Current Branch is Semi-Annual Pilot)

 

In addition, the following topics could not be covered due to time constraints (today’s audio guide is an hour long one):

  • Input learning in Narrator (Caps lock+1)
  • Full extent of braille options in Narrator
  • Cortana interaction changes
  • OneDrive files on demand
  • Windows Sonic for Headphones (mostly dealing with hardware setup required)
  • Pinning websites in Edge to taskbar
  • Read aloud in PDF’s and books in Edge
  • Power throttling (hardware setup required)
  • Windows Hello (hardware setup required)
  • Beam/Mixer broadcasting (don’t have an active Xbox Live account)

 

Corrections:

  • In the beginning of the guide I state that the last guide was on build 15048, but it was 15042.
  • I wanted to give a word about my impression of Fall Creators Update but ran out of time. Similarly, I could not include upgrade advice for same reasons.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: vlc nvda add on commands

Gene
 

There are  no commands specifically for the ad on.  the add on announces things that occurred before but without speech so you didn't know that anything was happening or if you did, you had to memorize or guess what.  After the add on is installed open VLC player and tab.  You will tab through lots of items.  To change the state of an item, press enter on it.  The space bar doesn't do anything.  Letters that are short cut commands take actions which are announced.  I don't think the commands you can control by short cut commands are in addition to those you can perform by tabbing.  I think they are some of the same commands.  I don't know how many are provided.  If you get a list of short cuts for VLC Player, you can try various letter shortcuts.  One of them, for example, is shuffle on and off.  The letter r controls this command.  In the list of short cuts, this is described as random.  Wouldn't it be nice if VLC player documentation used the English language as we know it?  The generally accepted name for the command is not random, but shuffle.

Re: Tutorial for using the MS edge browser with NVDA

Hi there David, I genuinely appreciate all your work on the recently released tutorial for Edge.

I have another question if you are willing to share a bit more of our NVDA talent.

I am using Outlook 2010 with the most reacent release of NVDA.

When opening a message, how can I stop NVDA from announcing what is in the from, cc, bcc, subject, message size and the format the message is written (txt or html?)

Thanks a bunch in advance.

Hi all!

I am excited to paste this tutorial on using the MS Edge browser with NVDA right here in the message. I strongly welcome all feed back.

I tell you everything I heard as I used the Alt+X command, which gave me a menu a lot like the Chrome menu. I did some simple Object navigation to get to the important Hub button, which opens up a five tab dialog to work with favorites and all.

I used NVDA 2017.2, latest stable update.

I used the creators update of Win10 the latest public build.

I used the latest update of Joseph’s Win10 assentials add on.

I could access about 90 percent of what I can in crome.

This tutorial is very short, but comprehensive.

Here it is right below.

Tutorial for Microsoft Edge

I will write this tutorial using NVDA only. I found NVDA to work much better with Edge than with Narrator.

I am using the Latest stable version of NVDA 2017.2.

I am using the latest public build of Windows 10 Creators update.

If you are using anything different than that, you might get different results.

Step Number One:

Opening the Edge Browser:

Press the Windows key or CTRL+Escape, to open the start area. Next, type Edge and enter when NVDA announces it.

Press enter, and the Edge browser should open.

Step Number Two:

I pressed CTRL+L and entered:

www.freedomscientific.com

That is the site for Freedom Scientific.

The web site came up very quickly.

I can use all navigation keys for other browsers, and they all work.

Now, I will now press ALT+X to open a menu of choices. One of these choices is settings.

I will now assign a home page to open everytime I launch the Edge browser.

I will make my home page:

www.google.com

Press enter on Settings.

Next, start tabbing, and you will hear:

change my default button, Choose a theme, Next, there is a combo box where you can choose open Edge with a certain page or pages.

This is the choice I will choose in this combo box. I just entered on that choice, and the combo box closed.

Next, there is an edit box where I typed:

Next, back button.

If you change any of these advanced settings, you can tab to the back button to go back to where you were.

I entered on the back button, and I am back to the settings dialog where I was, when I pressed enter on advanced settings.

We are done with settings, and the advanced settings. You see, just by pressing enter on settings, we were able to simply tab through all of these settings, and press enter on the advanced settings, and customise Edge to your liking, just like you can in other browsers.

Settings was in the menu that comes up by pressing ALT+X. This menu of choices is a lot like the Chrome menu that you get by pressing the Alt key.

There are many choices in that ALT+X menu, that I encourage you to just arrow through, just like the Chrome menu. Important, I have to press Escape twice to get out of the settings or this menu to get back to my Freedom Scientific page that I have opened.

Now, I will use object navigation to show you how to get to the Hub.

The hub button, opens up five tabs. You can just press CTRL+Tab to tab through the choices of each of these five tabs. It is just like a multi page dialog.

Now, I will press CTRL+Home to get to the top of the Freedom Scientific web site that I have opened.

Next, I will press NVDA+Numpad 8, to go up to my parent objects.

I first hear the page I am on. Now, Pressing Numpad 6, takes me to the navigation bar. That is the only object to the right.

So, Now, hold NVDA, and press numpad 4 to go left through the objects.

You hear the page you are on, then, Next, pressing numpad 4, you hear settings and more. That is the exact menu that you get by pressing ALT+X. Pressing NVDA+Enter will open the same menu we were just in.

Important, I have to press NVDA+Enter to activate these buttons, because I am using object navigation to access these controls.

Press numpad 4 again,

I hear Share, then Make a web note, and Now, the important hub.

I will now press NVDA+Enter on this hub button, and I will get this five tab dialog I told you about.

I hear:

Favorites tab, 1 of 5. So here we are in our favorites.

If I tab twice, I can arrow up and down through my favorites. In a web site, just press CTRL+D to save a favorite.

Now, I will press CTRL+TAB to get to the next dialog.

Next, I hear reading list tab. I have nothing here. This is probably for books that you download with Edge from the store.

CTRL+TAB again:

I hear Get Books, sign in, and shop for books in the store! This is exciting.

The 4th tab, is my history. I can delete my history, and look at my history here.

The 5th and last tab, is my downloads tab. Here is where you come to view your downloads, and check on the status of a download in progress.

So, that is it for the HUB button.

I pressed Escape to get out of Hub. We are still in these parent objects. Press NVDA+Numpad 4 again from Hub, I hear Add to favorites or reading list. Very interesting about the reading list.

Next, I hear my Web Address in the Address bar.

Refresh button, back button, Show tab previews button, Still pressing NVDA+Numpad 4.

Now, New tab button, My Freedom Scientific button, and then, Set tabs aside. Lastly, show tabs you have set aside. and that is it.

So, all that I just told you about, I accessed by just pressing CTRL+Home to get to the top of my web page, Pressed NVDA+Numpad 8, then, I kept pressing Numpad 4 with NVDA key held down. The Hub, was just a five tab dialog.

All navigation commands work in Edge, just like in other Browsers. I was able to listen to the FS pod casts by pressing shift+enter on the one below the one I wanted to listen to. To listen to the first, I had to press shift+enter on the second one. That was interesting.

I always press shift+enter to have a link open in a new window, instead of a new tab. The FS casts from Freedom Scientific, played with my Adobe Flash player.

As you can see, you can do quite a bit with Edge, by using the Latest NVDA public version, and just Doing a little bit of object navigation, and the menu that opens by pressing Alt+X.

Please give me your feed back, and how much you hear what I hear when tabbing and the like.

That is all for this tutorial.
