Re: I am interested in programming for NVDA

J.G
 

Hi,

as I have written, beginners to programing should take a tutorials/manuals, which are simple and explain python in plain language so it can be understandable for all of us. I suggest you: https://learnpythonthehardway.org/
there are books, which can help you self-teaching coding. these are divided in cca 50 section - exercises. through them you can begin to know how to programing.

warning: if you really want to code, you will have to train yourself a lot.

hope this helps and that in this post I was clearer than in my previous message.

regards, Jožef

What version of Outlook are you on?  I have 2007 and on the Help menu there is an Office Diagnostics utility that you can run to check for problems in Office products on your machine.  This may give you some additional information.

 

Cheers

Dear Gene,

Please Gene, as I have explained that I lack technical knowledge and carry on the basics that I know to enjoy going on my computer.

How can I try running Outlook in compatibility mode?  I do not know even how to go back to 1603 and was feeling very proud to have successfully upgraded to 1703

Also I do not think I will know how to change from outlook as I have been on it from day one.

Hope you will be able to help.

Thank you all so much.

Another list member suggested using a different e-mail program.  the message you are getting is because Outlook is crashing and you get that message every time.  The most likely explanation is that there is something in the update of Windows that is causing the problem.  I haven't used the Windows 10 app and I don't know if it is your best option.

 

One possibility is to try running Outlook in compatibility mode.  I don't know enough about it to comment further but that is probably the first thing to try. 

 

If that fails, you may want to consider other programs.  If you are using a POP3 account, the Windows 10 app doesn't support POP3.  You will have to use IMAP.  I don't know enough about IMAP to comment on it.

 

I can tell you that if you are using POP and want to continue using it, you can use either Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail. 

 

Is there any reason you are using Outlook or are you just using it because you have useed it for a long time?

Dear all,

I have just managed to update my window 10 creaters update as my turn came as I did check the version and it did happen from 1603 to 1703

I know very little but am learning.

Now the only problem I am encountering is that when I open my outlook to read my emails, it lets me read few and stops by saying that Microsoft has encountered a problem and will notify me if the solution is found. Press alt c to cancel

I then have to keep restarting my outlook again and again as it lets me read few more and cuts off.

I am still using Microsoft office 2003

All else is working fine.

Please I do not know what Gene and Rosmary are talking about installing and un installing this stable version

If that is my problem, can someone help me with step by step instructions please.

I hope the above does make sense in explaining myself.

Thanking you all again.

With many regards always

Hi,

I will bring this up during our Add-ons Festival (September 2017). A tentative outline of a hypothetical course on NVDA Core development is something I’d like to send to the community for feedback soon.

Hello all,

Stephanie, thank you for posting your interest. Somewhat like you and Tony, I would like to learn how to code and think NVDA may be a good excuse.

Would those of us novices like to work together and would any of the experts feel like being our guides?

I am proposing a sort of subgroup or informal self driven course to keep us motivated and emotionally supported.

Any takers?

Thanks again, Stephanie, for getting us out of the woodwork,

I am willing to at as a guide. Your first step might be to find a Python tutorial that does not assume any programming
experience. If you are on Bookshare try searching for Python. You can write simple Python programs very easily.

Question ,

What version of outlook are you using,

Also, I believe if you right click on it and go to properties,

One of the tabs for the icon is compatability mode or something like that.

It is in there that you change it.

Let me know if you need anything else and I will try and help out.

Bring up malware bytes and if it tells you that there is an update available to the latest version and asks you if you want to install it, say yes, and let it do its thing.  Then, after it completes, test outlook 2003 to see if it works properly. If it works, then you will be in business, if it still gives you trouble, please let us know and we'll try to work something else out.

If you are using malware bytes on your system, and the version is prior to version 3.1.2, try to update that and see if things work.  I cannot promise that they will though. If not, you may have to either migrate to a different email client such as windows live mail or Mozilla thunderbird which supports both the IMAP and Pop3 protocols; or  roll windows 10 back to version 16.07 and hope that gets outlook 2003 working again.

Hello all,
The concept seems great, but unfortunately this app is totally not accessible, at least in my case. I couldn't even install it to the end, since all dialogues weren't read by any of my two screenreaders. And when I think that only two months ago I bought a one-year subscription to Google Drive. How disappointing! I'll now have to look for another backup solution.

Another list member suggested using a different e-mail program.  the message you are getting is because Outlook is crashing and you get that message every time.  The most likely explanation is that there is something in the update of Windows that is causing the problem.  I haven't used the Windows 10 app and I don't know if it is your best option.

 

One possibility is to try running Outlook in compatibility mode.  I don't know enough about it to comment further but that is probably the first thing to try. 

 

If that fails, you may want to consider other programs.  If you are using a POP3 account, the Windows 10 app doesn't support POP3.  You will have to use IMAP.  I don't know enough about IMAP to comment on it.

 

I can tell you that if you are using POP and want to continue using it, you can use either Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail. 

 

Is there any reason you are using Outlook or are you just using it because you have useed it for a long time?

Dear all,

I have just managed to update my window 10 creaters update as my turn came as I did check the version and it did happen from 1603 to 1703

I know very little but am learning.

Now the only problem I am encountering is that when I open my outlook to read my emails, it lets me read few and stops by saying that Microsoft has encountered a problem and will notify me if the solution is found. Press alt c to cancel

I then have to keep restarting my outlook again and again as it lets me read few more and cuts off.

I am still using Microsoft office 2003

All else is working fine.

Please I do not know what Gene and Rosmary are talking about installing and un installing this stable version

If that is my problem, can someone help me with step by step instructions please.

I hope the above does make sense in explaining myself.

Thanking you all again.

With many regards always

Sakina

Dear friend,

Please I am not too technically clever and just stick to basics of what I know.

How do I go about trying this default mail you are suggesting.

Are there steps you can send me to see if it cures the problem

Many thank you

Sakina

Please

You may try default mail app on Win10. It works perfect.

Re: I am interested in programming for NVDA

Sally Kiebdaj
 

Hello all,

Stephanie, thank you for posting your interest. Somewhat like you and Tony, I would like to learn how to code and think NVDA may be a good excuse.

Would those of us novices like to work together and would any of the experts feel like being our guides?

I am proposing a sort of subgroup or informal self driven course to keep us motivated and emotionally supported.

Any takers?

Thanks again, Stephanie, for getting us out of the woodwork,

Cheers,
Sally

I do a lot of basic web surfing and I have came to the conclusion that Internet Explorer is well past its prime. So many different sites work very poorly with IE. With NVDA support of Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome I am finding it quite easy to stop using IE all together. Of course there is Firefox as well but I am seeing all my needs met with Edge and Chrome.

Hi Gene,


IT is just another option. My point is that if certain things can be
reconfigured, it is usable. If a small company decides to use this
browser as its default, it would be usable.

The one thing I saw in the description is the notes feature and that
is available in Chrome so that advantage may be of short duration.

*Subject:* [nvda] Vivaldi Web Browser: First Impressions

Hi Group,


With all this talk about Vivaldi web browser, I thought I would give it
a try. It has promise. Quick key navigation works; the interface
reminds me of Google Chrome; the text is read quite easily as in other
accessible browsers such as Firefox and Internet Explorer.


There are a series of issues that make it a bit clumsy. The menus are
similar to Google Chrome. There is one menu with sub menus which
involve the use of the tree view type navigation system. This isn't a
big problem once you get use to it. The main problem I am having is
setting the browser up. The settings panel is all buttons. While the
screen changes, it is difficult to keep track of the input and just what
buttons to press to accept the changes. In other words, there is no OK
button and you really don't know if you have successfully made a change
until you close the settings panel and try the changes out.


In addition, unless there is a way to remove this and because of my
difficulty with the settings panel, there might be, the browser opens
with a navigation panel consisting of buttons. I would really like to
get rid of this panel and have the page load normally as in other
browsers.


If anyone else tries out this browser and can figure out just how to
change settings more easily and how to get rid of the start panel that
appears at the top of every page, I would appreciate the information and
this for me would make the browser a reasonable alternative to the other
standard fare.

Hi Sakina,


If you are using malware bytes on your system, and the version is prior to version 3.1.2, try to update that and see if things work.  I cannot promise that they will though. If not, you may have to either migrate to a different email client such as windows live mail or Mozilla thunderbird which supports both the IMAP and Pop3 protocols; or  roll windows 10 back to version 16.07 and hope that gets outlook 2003 working again. Keep us posted on things are going.

Hi,

When I started to learn coding, I was researching, which material should I study. I found some useful sources for absolutely beginners. Here is one: https://learnpythonthehardway.org/

when we are going to learn to code basics, then we will be able to participate in NVDA coding.

Hope, this helps.
