Re: Special characters in NVDA

If you have JAWS, it has a feature that displays a lot of symbols.  As I recall, you find the one you want in the list and press enter to place the symbol in a document you are editing.  You can open a blank document, then open the list in JAWS and put whatever symbols you want in the document, then save it.  You would put one to a line so you can quickly move to the symbol you want and then be easily able to select and copy it to the clipboard, then go back to the document you are working on and paste it in.

Yes, that’s what I figured. I only note that it won’t work for everyone because some seem to balk at the notion of typing several keystrokes to get a single character result. Still quicker than pasting from a file or character map imo but, it’s of course up to the user. In any case, you still have to find the right codes, before you can remember them. J

That will work with NVDA.  I thought the numlock was off when this was done but when the numlock is on, the Numpad works just as it does When NVDA isn't running.

I haven’t yet tried this with nVDA running, but the quickest way for me has always been to turn the numlock on, and type the alt-number combination, then turn the numlock off again. This won’t work for everyone. While I admit I can’t remember all the important codes, most of the ones I use are accents you’d find in french, and I do remember those. Windows has a feature called Character Map, which you can use to look up character codes, or paste the characters directly into your document. I haven’t used it since XP, but I just looked, and note that it is still here in Windows 10. However, the interface seems to have changed somewhat. Still, you can search for things if you select the advanced view. Play around with it if you like. You’ll probably have to use object navigation in NVDA.

 

The good news is that once you know the code, you don’t have to muck around with pasting anything. Make a list of the ones you use often, rather as Gene suggested, and before long you’ll remember them and type them quickly and efficiently.

NVDA has no such dialog.  Do you still have JAWS on your machine?  You could create your own list using Notepad and then cut and paste them into documents.  Or you can create these characters using the numpad, but I've almost never done this.  Since NVDA uses the Numpad, I'm not sure if you can do this unless you use the bypass command.  Others may comment.

Re: say copy selected text

Quentin Christensen
 

The reason it isn't built in is precisely what you just said - when it was first being looked at, we couldn't actually know whether text had been cut, copied or pasted etc.  All we could do was detect that control+c had been pressed and know that is GENERALLY used for copy.  We didn't want to tell the user something had been copied when it hadn't, so instead there is the "Speak command keys" option (NVDA+4 or via the NVDA keyboard preferences NVDA+control+k) which will read CONTROL+C in that instance.

The SpeakClip add-on does read the command - cut, copy, paste, select all etc.  It does make an effort to report this intelligently.  I recall a conversation with someone recently who said it is now more possible to accurately tell what has happened (text has been cut, a file has been copied, etc).  If that is the case, then it potentially could be considered to be built in.

Kind regards

Quentin.

This is one to bring up again on the add ons list I'd imagine.

Re: odd and random out of character announcements

 

Which is why unless I need them I kill all running or pinned tasks.

I know this may be stupid but for me default tasks in the bar are basically spam I never put them there so I kill them.

One other thing I do especially with a laptop is to turn off mouse tracking because if you don't it causes issues not just touch pads, sometimes nvda will randomly speak things and this was the cause for me.

I do use it on my desktops a bunch but on laptop I don't unless I need it for something.

Using win10pro 1709 Build 16299.192 and NVDA version 2017.4





When I arrow up or down in outlook 2016 messages at random I hear things
like minimise the window or  alt something to do something.. As if a stretch

When typing in this email I keep hearing at odd time forms region,  and
desktop, and clear tabs or something like that.



I reloaded nvda to no avail. Maximised and restored windows to no avail.



However I noticed that this started today and not sure when I had upgraded

Any help sa to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

No I get this with those annoying mouse pads on laptops. You just need one hair of your hand to touch the darned thing. On the mouse side, I plug the mouse into a usb on the keyboard so I can just pull it out when I'm using the machine if its a desktop.

Hi.



I hope im not too early but thinks I have fixed issue.



It seems possibly the mouse. I don't use the mouse but physically got the
mouse and moved it to the extreme of window and seems like its all quiet
now.



Sorry for any inconvenience.



Cheers

That sounds like the running tasks pinned to some part of windows being refreshed and getting focus for a moment to me.

Further announcements such as:



When alt tabbing I get a mention like close task switching and its gone when
releasing the key combo..



Also when I was up arrowing in file exploer got a firefox open menu
announcement. But I don't see a list. Do have Firefox running with two
websites .e.g Facebook and Sendspace.



Also whilst writing this email got announcement

Side by side toolbar, narvigation menu..



Thanks

Craig.

Hi.



Using win10pro 1709 Build 16299.192 and NVDA version 2017.4





When I arrow up or down in outlook 2016 messages at random I hear things
like minimise the window or alt something to do something.. As if a stretch
out menu like when you press the alt key and get the menu restore, minimise,
maximise etc.. Also when I got to the top of my messages I hear desktop.



When typing in this email I keep hearing at odd time forms region, and
desktop, and clear tabs or something like that.



I reloaded nvda to no avail. Maximised and restored windows to no avail.



However I noticed that this started today and not sure when I had upgraded
to build 16299.192 which may have a bearing but couldn't be certain.





Any help sa to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks

I wondered if you had something else trying to gain focus while its open?
