Re: outlook and NVDA

Steve Gomes <finnygomes@...>
 

I just uninstalled NVDA and downloaded it from the web page and reinstalled it. Interesting it seems to remember my user settings. I have it to read single digits and it still does that. We will see what happens.

This is certainly fixed for later Outlook versions. You may wish to submit a bug report.

Re: NVDA 2018.1 freezes when editing an Excel worksheet

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi Suzy,

I experience this too and, like you, Excel starts off fine and then will freeze up after finishing entering text into one of the cells. For me there is a kind-of workaround.

When I type into a cell and then nothing responds, I move away to another program, Mozilla for example, then go Alt Tab back to Excel and the sheet responds to key presses / typing again. That doesn't mean it won't freeze up again after entering the next cell data, requiring another Alt Tab move away from Excel and then back to Excel again.

I hve not been able to figure out what causes this, and why, once it has started responding properly again, it works fine for a few more entries and then ties up again. Sometimes it seems to occur when Excel auto-formats something like a date, but tonight my date inputs are all working fine.

I'll pay more attention when I do some more work (I've a couple of edits I need to make this evening and a couple more entries I need to add, so if any of those freeze Excel I'll take more notes).

I'm using Excel 2016 on Win10 and with NVDA 2018.1

Re: Silencing the Checked Selected Checked Annoyance?

Chris Mullins
 

Hi
You need to set upt the File explorer display to your liking. First of all, press windows+e to open File Explorer.
Next, press alt+v followed by the letter l. This will open a Layout dialog where you choose the layout for how files and folder items are displayed when you use File explorer. The choices are Tiles, Content, large icons, medium icons, small icons, extra large icons, list and details. As a totally blind person, I find 'Details' the best for me as it shows file names, date last updated and type of file description entries in a list format but the choice is yours. Just press enter on the format you want. You can experiment by re-issuing the alt+v l command and going through the options to see which suits you best.

Once you have chosen a layout, you can now tweak other settings associated with the File Explorer display. Press alt+f then arrow down to 'Options Change settings for opening items, file and folder views, and search.' And press enter to open the 'Folder Options' dialog.

This is a multi-tab dialog and you will land in the General settings tab. In this tab you can set what happens when you press Windows+e, the choices being ThisPC (previously known as MyComputer) and Quick Access. Tab through the items in this dialog, they are fairly self-explanatory. When you reach the OK/Cancel/Apply buttons, activate apply to keep the dialog open.

Now press Control+tab to move into the View tab. The first item you come to in this tab is the option to apply this view to all folders of this type. Press the shortcut key to accept this option and accept the prompt. Now tab into the advanced options treeview then use the up/down arrows to move through the list. Some of the options I have set are:

display the full path in the title bar - On
Hide extensions for known filetypes - Off
Show drive letters - On
Use check boxes to select items - Off

The above are only suggestions, you set it up how you want.

Finally tab to Ok and press enter.

Cheers
Chris

Dear addon developers,

during last years I gathered lot of experience in using NVDA, understanding
how the community works, teaching new users of NVDA to work with it
productively and the most important, maintaining language communities. I
have learned how it is to translate different parts of NVDA including
Addons, user guides, websites etc. I discovered how an issue tracker works
and how open source projects can improve.

The most important part of improvements are discussions between users and
developers. Feedback is the main motor of the future of open source
projects. The same case applies for addons. I am sure that an addon
developer dives into this thing because he or she can do something that
changes people's live, not only his or her life. But well, an addon which
has a simple function can be differently interpreted by the users. That's
why most addon authors are seeking for user feedback and most engaged users
are interested in providing it. We as language maintainers serve as a bridge
between users and developers, especially when we are talking about language
bareers. For us language maintainers it is important that users can benefit
through using your addons. We get the feedback from them first. Valuable
feedback is when many users provide it. Because then we can see different
perspectives and new interesting ideas.

I want to encourage you all to make your addons available to the worldwide
community. Not only to one or few languages. You will get interesting
feedback, new suggestions for interesting functions and most important, you
will contribute to better education and job opportunities especially in less
developped countries.

I encourage you all to use the public translation system provided by NV
Access and maintained by the community. It is not complicated to request to
include your addon on the translation system. This tutorial written by
Noelia Ruiz should help you in doing this.

And finally I encourage you to start cooperations with developers worldwide.
Every developer got his feedback and his experience. The exchange between
developers is one of the most effective way to improve, create new and
maintain existing addons.

Please don't restrict your great work to a small part of the community. You
diserve big respect from the whole community, not only from a part of it.

Hi Kenny


I am guessing it is the following.

Use the windows key + letter E so file explorer or what ever it is called comes up.


Then pres the alt key until the file menu comes up then arrow right to the view menu. You will need to open the view menu depending how you have it set it may be when you get to it just tabbing or the space bar might open it.


Tab down until you hear Item check boxes Use check boxes to make selecting multiple items easier. and uncheck that check box. I am sure it was that one.


Close the screen with alt key + F4 key.


You should not hear it after that on the desk top file explofer etc.


hope it helps.
