Re: echo characters and words

Gene
 

The easiest way to do so and to make the setting permanent is the following:
I assume you are using the desktop layout.
 
issue the command NVDA key, either insert by default and, while holding it, press the number 2 on the main keyboard.  This toggles between off and on for characters.  Characters are on by default.  Do the same but this time use the number 3 on the main keyboard.  In other words, NVDA key 3.  Repeating the command toggles between off and on.  When they are both on, to make the setting permanentt, you can use the command NVDA key c.  However, NVDA is set to automatically permanently save settings on exit so you may want to skip that step and just have it done when you close the program or shut down the computer with NVDA running.

Re: echo characters and words

HI Kevin,

I replied to I'm sure your previous question just this afternoon, but in case you haven't seen it yet, press NVDA+2 to toggle whether typed characters are echoed, and NVDA+3 for words.

Your NVDA key is either INSERT or CAPS LOCK depending on your setup, and the numbers noted are in the number row (above the letters).

Kind regards

Quentin.

The school year here goes for four terms, from the end of January, to Easter, then a couple weeks break then from April to the end of June, then two or three weeks break, then from July to September, then a couple weeks break then from October to December.  They tend to go right up until Christmas just about.  Finishing high school the last couple of years finish a bit earlier and have exams in November and then break, and at university they start in February or March and finish in October before exams.

Yes, down here in the southern hemisphere it's our summer, so we tend to have our larger break now - our school year does the same thing.  I always knew that Christmas was a winter affair in Europe and the US, but I was fascinated when I first learnt that the US (and possibly Europe?) school year starts in August / September and ends in June rather than following the calendar year.

Hi everyone,

 

Officially, I'm on leave now until the 15th of January.  While I'll still pop in now and then, I won't be as active for the next few weeks.  I know you will all be as helpful as ever in my absence, and also if there is anything particularly important or which needs my attention when I get back, do feel free to email or CC me so I see it.

 

I know Mick is also taking a similar amount of leave and I'm not sure how much Reef is taking.  In any case, things will likely be quiet all round officially from us.

 

Do have a wonderful, happy, holy and safe Christmas and New Year and I look forward to many stimulating conversations with you all in 2018!

 

Kind regards

Re: NVDA with excell #addonrelease #NVDACon

Quentin Christensen
 

As others have indicated, if you mean you press say the right arrow to move one cell to the right, down arrow to move once cell down, then yes, they should work exactly as with any other screen reader (or none).  If the current cell is in edit mode then the arrows move around the text in that cell rather than changing cells, but again, that is standard behaviour that you would likely have encountered before.

One difference could be if you are used to using the number pad, with numlock off, as the navigation keys?  NVDA uses the number pad to move the review cursor.  By default, this applies even if you have NVDA set to laptop keyboard layout.

You can change this behaviour using the input gestures dialog in NVDA's preferences menu (or I can send you a custom gestures file).

Kind regards

Quentin.

Ok thanks for the update!

If you come across it anywhere else, do let us know.  In any case, the other thing I'd suggest is writing to the trucking sim people and advising them of the issue.  They may or may not fix it, but at least you'll know they're aware of it.

Hi Dan,

Have you got an example page this happens in? It seems to be working fine for me with NVDA 2017.4 and Chome latest version (Version 63.0.3239.132 (Official Build) (64-bit))

I had a look on several sites including Wikipedia and eBay and on each I could type in an edit box then press NVDA+up arrow (if you're using laptop keyboard layout it would be NVDA+L) to read the current line and it did, and it read the character I removed with backspace.

The other thing to try is restarting Chrome / NVDA / the computer just to be sure it's not some random gremlin that goes away once you restart (if it keeps coming back that's a problem of course).

Kind regards

Automatically updating date in Microsoft Word, was: Re: [nvda] Hello from NV Access for 2018!

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Chris,

Just a little housekeeping first, if you are going to change the subject, it's much better to at least change the subject line, so people can find messages or realise that the topic has changed if they had stopped following the original thread.

Ok, to add the date to a footer in Word 2016:

1. Setup your footer: Press alt+n, then o, choose the style and ENTER.
2. Press alt+j, then h to insert date / time.
3. Use the arrows to select the style.
4. Press TAB once to go to language, then a TAB second time to "Update automatically".
5. Press spacebar to toggle this (by default it is enabled).
6. Press ENTER to insert the date / time into the footer of your text.

When the date / time is set to automatically update, it will update when the document is opened, saved or printed.

Is that what you were trying to do? It's one of those things that there are several ways to do it, so that is by no means the only way to accomplish it.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi,


Using NVDA with MS Office 2007 or 2016.


When using NVDA 2017.4 to include to put data in the footer in Ms Office 2016 you cannot tab to the object for checking the automatic date field or the field name object. The only way I can see is to use the separate tabs on ribbons in the Insert tab and then going to Quick Parts.


Is there any way of showing the tabs in the footer to go to date/file name?.

Re: New user

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Stephen,

It partly depends on your usage and needs.  For instance, if you are familiar with other screen readers and listening to a synthesized voice you may wish to speed it up.  If you are new to screen readers, you may wish to change to a more human sounding synthesizer.

You may also be interested in training material to help you get your head around all the options and how to get the most out of NVDA.  We have some official training material, the "Basic Training for NVDA" is a good place to start and is available in electronic text, audio and as hardcopy Braille.  There is a cost but we have kept it as modest as we could: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

The material is quite comprehensive and designed to take you from using NVDA for the first time, through to advanced concepts such as the review cursor, object navigation and configuration profiles.  There are step by step instructions and activities throughout the text.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Make NVDA speak certain character

Quentin Christensen
 

Jumping in late, but what everyone else said is excellent.  All I would add is that for a program like Visual Studio where you will want to hear every symbol read generally, you might consider creating a configuration profile.  Basically, once you've started VS, open the NVDA menu and select configuration profiles from the main menu.  Create a new profile and set it to be triggered automatically by the current program.  Then any changes you make - such as changing the punctuation level - will be changed for that program specifically.  That way you can read the newspaper without every piece of punctuation read out, but alt+tab back to your code and have every symbol read without needing to change anything on the fly.

Regards

Quentin.

The key is the punctuationlevel setting here, some will normally allow it to be spoken when cursoring down or up a line of code. one needs to be a little carful though as minus also exists in the table. Try playing with it on a portable version before you commit to it in the installed one.

Re: NVDA next snapshot

Quentin Christensen
 

To answer the original question, yes this is common enough - one difference between the snapshot builds (next and master) and the stable releases, is that in the snapshot builds, the error sound is played whenever any error is encountered.  Sometimes these may not actually affect the use of the program in question (such as this one when you move to a Chrome window).  The recommendation is that the error sound can be a useful indicator of when something goes wrong, but the real question is whether usage is impacted.  If something is going wrong from a user's perspective (ie, something you would notice even if that sound wasn't played) then it should be reported and investigated.

There was an issue created awhile ago around the ability to toggle whether the error sound is played and you can read that conversation here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6917

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Working with Libreoffice is so slow

V Stuart Foote
 

Folks need to be on LibreOffice 5.3.7.2 of the 5.3 branch. Or 5.4.4.2 of the 5.4 branch. Earlier 5.3 releases are not fit to use, nor or earlier 5.4 releases--again either 5.3.7.2 or 5.4.4.2 (or later).

LibreOffice devs have been struggling with Microsoft DirectWrite Direct2D font rendering for several release cycles and either the 5.3.7 release (end of life) or current 5.4.4 release should be used--NVDA behaves well with either but the Graphics card rendering mode will impact things.

Most modern Windows systems will use OpenGL by default, and LibreOffice's DirectWrite Direct2D implementation has been a problem--more than just on screen rendering.  Basically there were issues with failure to cache the fonts in use in a document causing very slow rendering as you move from cell to cell in a calc spreadsheet or page through a Writer document.  The 5.3.7 build is fine without OpenGL, but if using OpenGL (likely for most) move to the 5.4.4 release, or the pending 6.0.0 release.  Link below.

Performance is much improved for all users, good scrolling and movement between spreadsheet cells.

Stuart

Link to the LibreOffice project build archive for the 5.4.4.2 build, 32-bit or 64-bit builds:

Re: Working with Libreoffice is so slow

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi,

Sorry for the delay in replying, I'm still catching up.  Is this sluggishness with a particular file, or any file (or a blank sheet etc)?

A couple of thing to try or find out please:

- Which version of LibreOffice are you running?
- Which version of Windows?
- Which version of NVDA?
- Are you using any add-ons?
- If you restart NVDA with addons disabled (press NVDA+q, then down arrow to restart with addons disabled) does it make a difference.
- Roughly how old is the computer you are using and are other programs sluggish?

Re: Reading messages in action center, settings, and so on.

 

Hi,
One important thing to note: not all universal apps are universal. Most apps you get from Microsoft Store are universal apps (in that they'll use UIA), but a handful are old desktop apps converted into a partial universal app for distribution on Microsoft Store (and very soon, another app will join that rank).
As for the tutorial set in a zip file: it'll go up sometime in February (likely by the time NVDA 2018.1 release candidate comes out).
Cheers,
Joseph

I don't know but you might have saved a lot of time by using screen
review or object navigation to skim the screen.

As far as messages in the actual center, I don't know about Windows
10. My recollection about Windows 7 is that you can't read messages
either at all or well enough to be useful.

Hi all. Is there a way to read messages in things like action center
and setup in Windows 10? I have Windows App Essentials, latest stable
installed. Let me describe what I'm talking about, because I think
that will help.


Today I saw in the system tray that "actions are needed". So I opened
it up. It opened up Windows Defender. Windows Defender said I needed
to check for updates. But the only way I found that out was by using
NVDA-b to read the entire screen, so I had to listen to a lot of extra
stuff first. Is there a quicker way to find and read those kinds of messages?

Your tutorials were awesome, I'm talking about the 2015 ones, and I just
haven't gotten round to checking out the new ones yet. I might wait

Hi

On Dell running Windows 10, press and hold Shift, Alt and Print Screen
together this will give the option to toggle between High contrast.

Regards,

Stephen

Maybe it's the color filter. Try pressing CTRL+win+c to toggle it.
To make sure it's off, check under Settings, Ease of Access, Color &
high contrast.
