Hi,

Each time I update the Win10 App Essentials, my output device defaults to Microsoft Sound Mapper.  Please, changes to prevent this from happening are greatly appreciated as it is annoying to suddenly be without speech.

Hi Kavein,

 

Firstly thank you for your interest in helping out!

 

NVDA uses Braille tables from Liblouis: http://liblouis.org/

 

Information on creating new tables is available from: http://liblouis.org/documentation/liblouis.html

 

While NVDA isn't always on the latest build of Liblous, we are endeavouring to keep it more up to date than it has been previously.

 

Knowing we have users with an interest in a particular language, as and when you get Malay added and in a new LibLouis version, let me know (either on here or write to info@...) and I'll make a special effort to get us on the same version as soon as possible for you.

 

Kind regards


Quentin.

Re: excel 2016

Quentin Christensen
 

There's a couple of things.

Firstly in the document formatting dialog (NVDA+control+d or choose "document formatting" from NVDA's preferences menu), find "row/column headers" and ensure that is checked.  While you are there set "cell coordinates" if you want that.

To set headers:
- Move to the first cell in the row that you want to have headers read and press NVDA+shift+C to set column headers.
- Move to the first cell in the column that you want to have headers read and press NVDA=shift+r to set row headers.

To remove headers, move to the same cell and press the shortcut twice quickly.

Note that you need to move to the first cell you want headers read from - it doesn't automatically set it for the whole row or column.

Regards

Quentin.

I am pretty sure they are changing the whole ui interface so if you don’t have firefox nightly 57, you may wish to give it a try.

You can mute any thread if you read any message in that thread as HTML.
There is a mute link at the bottom of messages. You may not see it if
you read mail as plain text. You will definitely see it if you read

I've often wondered about this.

Surely a profound truth is a correct statement.

So, if the opposite of that correct statement is a false statement,
how can it be another profound truth?

I think if that does not work then its the problem I suggested. I've never seen this issue myself though fixing it is the reason why xp support was suddenly dropped as the only fix meant you could not easily keep supporting the older systems.

Might be interesting to know whether the Master branch still exhibits this, though I'm not sure if the fix has got there as yet. I'm experiencing some serious issues with installing updates to nvda recently with locking up on restart and lots of strange errors duing copying files on portable versions as well.

That isn't a new problem. It has been in existence for quite some time. I don't know how far bac it goes. Browse mode doesn't work properly, if at all. Tab works whether you are in browse mode or not. Restart Firefox to solve the problem.

Running NVDA 2017-3 on a win 10 64 bit machine.

This issue doesn't seem to be browser specific as I have had the issue with both IE and Google Chrome. Sometimes NVDA doesn't report a link. With this issue I have had the problem of hitting the enter key on a line of text on a web page causing NVDA from responding and locking the computer. In some cases you can wait it out and speech returns and on other cases the only way to fix the issue is a hard reboot. Can happen on any web page if you happen to hit enter on a non control line on the page.




Re: nvda developers please help me about my favorite version of nvda!

Mail that has no text version doesn't cause a problem with webmail interfaces.  If you don't want to read mail as HTMal using a weeb interface and the web interface doesn't offer a text setting, turn off script support in your browser or use something like a portable version of NVDA with script support off specifically for that site and any other sites you don't want scripts to run in.  Use whatever browsers you use now when you do want script support.

Actually one big problem today is that some emails are going out with no
text version and in some instances this can make cutting and pasting content
very hard to format. I do this a lot for talking newspaper scripts to read
each week. another reason why I never use on line email. You can set up the
old outlook Express to only see the text version or go back and forth, very
handy indeed for my situation.

To my knowledge, and after doing some web research, it is not possible to
make the Gmail web interface do forced conversions to plain text when a
message has been sent in HTML format. This actually makes sense since so
much actual information is often contained in HTML elements like
click-through links that are part of an image and similar.

You can choose to compose in plain text, but even that has become more
difficult to set up since HTML formatted messages have become the de facto
standard.
