Thanks in advance.

Re: Vocalizer from Tifloteknia

At least other companies add features like voices that users have been requesting. And at least they don’t keep telling users that an update is coming for years and not delivering on that update. Again, I would like to say that I’m wrong. I would like to say that the product we are discussing will get updated in the features that users have been promised for a long time will be added. So far though, that is just not reality. And until it happens, I will keep coming out on this list and anywhere else that this product was discussed and I will keep telling users to avoid it. There’s really a very simple solution to this. Communicate with this list and let users of your product no why the promised update has not come yet. Continue to update them. Stop delivering promises that it is coming soon when it’s not. Stop giving timelines. However, timelines continue to be delivered. And we still don’t have an update. Not only do we not have the update, but we don’t have any reason why the update still taking as long as it is. Other than an email Wayback that said that they are running into a couple of issues that should be resolved very soon. Clearly there are still reasons why this product is not being delivered. And it’s ridiculous. You took a vantage of your users. You’ve taken years to update your product. User spent a lot of money on your product, the least you could do this update them on the progress of what is going on. Instead of promising them an update that has still not been delivered. I regret very much purchasing the product. I am a very to satisfied user. The level of support has been unprofessional. And the lack of software updates as bad. So I can’t recommend it. Sorry if anyone disagrees. Again, this message is being written outside of my role as an owner and a moderator of this listst, and my message does not represent nonvisual desktop access in any way.

Re: nvda and alternative email client and chrome andbankingwebsite

Hello David,
 
I have been using WLM for some time and like it. However, I have not been able to get my spellcheck to work. Pressing F7 does nothing. When I locate Spellcheck on the ribbon, It says “Disabled” and I can’t find anyway to enable it. Any Suggestions?

Hi!

Yes, I am the same way!

Even with the few quarks in the mail app, I still find it the best by far.

Pressing F7 in a message you are typing, will spell check a word at a time. You have to just press F7 to find the next misspelled word. When it can’t find any, it says spellcheck complete.

Each conversation is opened when you down arrow to it. I have to keep pressing left arrow to close the conversation before pressing delete to delete the entire conversation.

I did a good text tutorial on using the Mail, Calendar, and People apps if anyone wants it!

I increasingly find I am using Windows Mail  with NVDA for the vast bulk of my email usage.

I have not installed the Windows 10 essentials addon as I found I was having problems with this and Mail seems to work even faster without  it.

There are a few oddities bukt they are workd around and I do the work arounds now without conscious thought but with muscle memory.

I find it is easily the fasterst and most efficient email system with NVDA. Certainly is is vastly snappier and efficient compared to my Outlook 2010 which although it undeniably has more features but is far more sluggish.

I do not use rules and have not investigated whether these are  possible with Windows Mail. I suspect not.

Windows Mail appears to be able to pull in at least some of your Outlook contacts automatically.

Although there is no formal spell checking that I know of there is by default in Mail automatic typing spelling  correction.

Some of the oddities.

Firstly if you reply to an email NVDA will not  immediately focus in the edit field ready for typing. Alt tabbing away and alt tabbing back will restore focus in the edit field ready for you to start typing.

Secondly Mail will occasionally shift focus from the message list to the navigation Bar with NVDA. Shift tab every time you hear Navigation and you will be placed straight back in the message list.

Thirdly you will occasionallly lose focus from the message list and hear the message loading as new messatges are pulled down. Again shift tabbing once will return you straight back to the message list.

In practice this lis less of a hassle than it sounds – I do it without thinking now.

If you get emails coming in whilst you are reviewing your message list your focus on a particular email in the list may slip and when you pres enter you may open the wrong email.  – mormally one just below the one you intended. Pressing escape to go back to the message list and re-selecting the desired email normally fixes this.

However I often do not   bother to open emails.

The Message llist works with a preview feature which I really like as I can often delete short  list emails without having to open them.

Placing attachments in a Windows Mail email is really easy. Go to file explorer, copy the file or files want to attach, open a new email and then press control V to paste in the files as attachments.

Virtually all the traditional Outlook  keyboard shortcuts work.

So control Y to bring up the folder list.

Control enter to send an email.

Control N for new email.

Control R for reply etc etc.

Pressing delete key in message list will delete an email – doing the same in the reading pane will also delete the message.

Occasionally windows Mail will not respond at all with NVDA. Closing the program and restarting it normally fixes this immediately. As the program is so fast at loading this does not concern me overmuch.

Finally the threading feature is automatic, not customisable as far as I am aware,  and takes a little  getting used to. Threads automatically open when you cursor down the message list. To collapse  any thread you simply focus on any message in the thread and press left arrow twice. When you hear collapsed you can also then press the delete key to delete the whole thread.

So in summary if you want a highly customisable  email program with lost of features mail is probably not for you.

If you want fast quick simple review of emails  I personally no of no combination on any platform which works as well as NVDA and Mail.

hi

 

I have two problems with nvda 2017.4RC1. first, it seems like mozilla

thunderbird beta2 is unstable and is crashing. I went back to

thunderbird 52.4 i even uninstalled and reinstalled thunderbird and it

still crashes and is sluggish when writing emails and sometimes now when

reading emails. so I have a question. is the mail app in windows10

accessible? is it fast and responsive? if so I will get rid of

thunderbird and use the windows10 mail app or another alternative you

recommend. yes I have the app essentials addon installed. and my win10

home is all up to date. my next question is in google chrome on the

santander bank login website just google search santander bank login.

the login is a clickable elemtn. it brings up a dialog box that seems to

work in firefox but i can't seem to get to this dialog box in chrome.

can someone check that out with the latest chrome?

 

 

thanks

Look for “Welcome to NVDA 2018” heading. Due to popular demand, each topic is a separate file. I plan to make each tutorial part a single file once production is complete, as well as providing a zip file of all tutorial files.

 

Changes:

  • Restarting NVDA: “Restart with debug logging enabled” is covered.
  • Creating portable copy: the option to start the portable version after creation is covered.
  • Basic keyboard commands: both desktop and laptop layouts are covered with live examples.
  • Battery status command: while demonstrating this command on my laptop, you’ll hear a surprise message.
  • Touchscreen interaction: briefly mentioned the new Touch Interaction settings which is incubating, along with an example.
  • Synthesizer: in part 2 (Basics), you’ll hear Windows OneCore (aka Microsoft Mobile) voices in action, with Microsoft Mark making his first appearance.
  • Formatting announcement: an example of what happens when you press NVDA+F twice quickly is included.
  • NVDA menu: Preferences/Windows 10 OCR is included but the actual dialog won’t be shown.
  • Add-ons preview: as you listen to NVDA menu segment, you’ll hear menu items for the following add-ons: Windows 10 App Essentials, Remote Support, and DictationBridge.
  • Opening the user guide: now done via Microsoft Edge.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi, Joseph,

 

I'll go up to the site and check out the first part of the tutorial. Microsoft Mark is my favorite of the one-core voices.

 

Thanks again for all that you do for us.

 

Rosemarie

Note also that these are Windows commands, nothing to do with NVDA.

Not a stupid question.

Windows B to go to the system tray. There hitting space  on the notification chevron should reveal all icons that you can review with left and right keys.

Hello listers,

 

Firstly, sorry for the stupid question. I’ve been using NVDA for only the past few days.

 

Is there a hotkey to go to the system tray?

 

Thanks in advance.

I simply installed it over the top, but I first installed it clean. I have no idea why it works better than simply running the portable copy on a machine, then doing an install. It just does for me.
Of course some people who have older machines might get an issue if they use 2017.4 and want it to run on XP, Vista or a Windows 7 machine without sop1!
Those combinations will not work so those buzzing around with a portable version who might encounter any of those machines should use 2017.3 as a separate version on the stick.

Hi Brian. Could you explain me what is the process to install NVDA clean and then copy your configuration from a portable copy? Thanks!

Right, so my mother was able to open the portable copy of NVDA, and I was in the window where the NVDA Portable folder was. Then I pressed caps-lock+n to open the NVDA menu and it said NVDA menu, but when I scrolled with the arrow keys it was only reading the items in the NVDA Portable folder, and so I couldn't select anything from the NVDA menu. I tried alt+tab but that just landed me in the same window. I tried pressing NVDA+n again, but that didn't work. I can't install from the portable copy if I can't access the NVDA menu.

Hello

I saw your other post, but wasn’t sure what you are trying to achieve?

Are you saying you want to run a portable copy of nvda or you cant run a portable copy?

Or are you wanting to install from a portable copy?

Or cant install it to your computer?

If you can be a bit ore specific that will help, thanks

Hi,

I got a Windows 10 laptop as an early Christmas present and earlier, I

tried to install NVDA on it from the portable copy I have, but when I

opened the NVDA Menu, focus didn't switch to it. I tried alt+tab in case

that would help, but I always landed on the window with the folder

containing the portable copy. I really wanna start working this computer

out and setting it up to my liking, but I can't do that if I can't even

focus on the window I want to focus on. I've asked on the blind tech

list but nobody's talking yet and I'm scared my post might end up being

ignored because I sent it just as everyone was going to bed.









Re: My mouse keeps freezing

 

your laptop manufacturer should have a driver unless the thing is really old.

I share my laptop with a sighted family member.

The synaptic pad mouse frequently freezes. This occurs intermittently,

This happens with NVDA and with JAWS, on both my win7 and win10 laptops.

I have ruled out a mechanical fault, and malware. This could be a
mouse driver or a registry key issue, but haven't explored these areas
further.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks, Paul

Re: My mouse keeps freezing

 

Well synaptic.com should have generic drivers for all their mice.

Windows 10 in theory should handle this though itself.

There's also an addon that uses nvda-f11 similar to JFW.

I agree with Bernd.

Hi Adriani,

Could you add your addon to NVDATranslations? In this case, this would
make translation of your addon easier. Furthermore Josef Lee has
automatic update support included in some of his addons. May he could
help you to add this to your addon.

Thanks
