Re: \Re: Windows 10 and email

 

Glenn,

          I will agree that if one uses fields seldom searched on the method of pulling those in under Outlook is tedious.  One nice thing, though, is once you've formulated a search it gets saved in Recent Searches.

          It's interesting that in my step-by-step instructions for doing an Outlook Advanced search for screen reader users I state the following, which I stand by:      Advanced Tab – so seldom used I will not discuss it here.  I used Outlook in several different professional settings over the course of decades and never did a search where I had to call on the Advanced Tab.

 


          I have absolutely no idea regarding comparative search speed.  Some of that's likely dependent on what gets indexed, which Outlook lets you configure, too.

          Like all software each has pluses and minuses.  In the case of e-mail clients certain features are passionately beloved by some, while being considered a big "meh" by others.  The identities feature of OE seems to be one of those.  I never knew of anyone who used it, but it's certainly beloved on the blind and low vision technology groups on which I participate.

          There is no right or wrong here; it's all a matter of personal preference.

Re: Free Synthesizers

Hi


late to the thread but if they are looking for some free synths and payed ones you can go to the following page at http://accessibilitycentral.net/how%20to%20install%20additional%20nvda%20components.html

They would then need to jump down by headings until they get to headings like  speech platform synths and voices. That page is where you can download all differnt ones.


I can drop box the whole package if some one goes that way just let me know.


there is another speech hub but you must also install the add on for nvda to see the synths You can get back to me if you are unsure where to find the add on.

I know of no way to increase the speed higher than "rate of 100."

Yours is a common complaint.  I'd submit a suggestion that the top rate be increased significantly via the Feedback Hub, then post the link to same here for folks to be able to upvote it.

It amazes me how many screen reader users can understand a speech rate that leaves most of the rest of the world scratching their heads (including me)!  But I also get why that's an incredibly valuable skill to develop.

Brian,

Perhaps one can go to advanced and repetitively select different fields to add to the search, but that is a lot of work to get all that done, prior to your search.

OE offers that to you from the start.

And, I have found that Outlook is slower at its searches than OE is.

          Pick one of your messages saying that the Outlook search is substandard compared to Outlook Express.

          Give me a single example of something you typically search for in OE and I'll bet I can replicate an advanced search for same in Outlook in seconds.  You really can't get more expansive and comprehensive a search mechanism than the Advanced Search function in Outlook provides.  That doesn't mean that the way in which OE allows you to do certain types of searches might be much easier, and I couldn't say because I have not touched OE in decades - it's dead and unsupported software.

           I just take issue with the idea that Outlook doesn't provide a search function that's far more complex and comprehensive than the average user will ever have need for, or even the advanced user will have frequent need for.

Hi Brian,

I don’t know which of my messages you are replying to, you don’t have your messages showing the message that you are replying to, but at any rate, I had already mentioned that folks get to those advanced search options by control + tabbing when you are in the search window, and the only way I know of getting to that search window is shift + control + F.

But those advanced searches are not as good as the search options in Outlook Express.

I would not keep old messages if I could not search through them with a search feature.

            You have never apparently used the Advanced Find feature of Outlook (CTRL + SHIFT + F) which allows you to specify values to search for in virtually any user-visible field, if you go through the Messages, More Choices, and Advanced tabs of that feature. It's been around for quite a while and can be directly invoked when you're in any mailbox.

The only problem with Outlook in my opinion, is its lousy search features.

In outlook Express, we can put something in every message field to really narrow the search, and the time frame is much easier and customizable to use than it is in Outlook.

I save many messages for later reference and the searches for old messages is much faster with Outlook Express than it is with Outlook.

For me, that is a significant drawback with Outlook.

It's a balancing act.  You have to set the rate in the control panel such that it is acceptable for nvda but not too fast for narrator; assuming, of course, that you use Narrator at all.

Yours is a common complaint.  I'd submit a suggestion that the top rate be increased significantly via the Feedback Hub, then post the link to same here for folks to be able to upvote it.

That should do it, and if you look at the properties, you can tab to the URL, and if nothing is there, you can paste it there too.

On the web page, I use Control + L that lands me on the URL. In the past, I used the context key to do a select, then again to copy. However I did try your copy method and it worked fine and it saves a tiny bit of time.

 

Then when on the desktop, I deselect the default item, and use the context key go to New, arrow down to Shortcut and fill in the address I have saved,, press NEXT and add a title and press Done.

Hi,

The only difference with deselecting is that the “new” is further down the context menu if it is not deselected.

But yes, the icon will be on the desktop with whatever name you give it.

Glen,

I am running Windows 10 and Firefox, and use much the same process as you. I had always deselected whatever item was the default selected before creating the new shortcut. I thought that was likely the different. However I tried your step by step without the deselect and it worked fine. When you finish your process, is there a new Icon with the correct name on your desktop?

Guess this was not of much help.

I don’t know why the way I do it in Windows 7 won’t work.

I go to the page, and go to the address field, with alt + D.

Then I do the copy command, control + C, it’s already highlighted.

Then I go to the desktop and I usually unselect whatever is there, but I don’t think this is necessary, with control + space bar.

Then I tap the applications key and arrow to new and open that and enter on shortcut.

Then I paste the URL I copied before, with control + V.

Then I enter and give it a name and I’m done.

It took a lot longer to write this out than this procedure takes.

The default method is drag and drop, which is not particularly convenient for screen reader users.

See this article on intowindows.com entitled, How To Create Website Shortcut On Desktop In Windows 10, which gives you alternative methods for creating desktop shortcuts to websites that are applicable no matter what web browser you're using.

If your default web browser is something other than Internet Explorer (and it should be) you can still use the trick of using IE just to create the desktop shortcut from the webpage currently visible.  The shortcut on the desktop will open in whatever your chosen default web browser happens to be, as what's created is nothing more than a shortcut to a web page and those are always opened by the default web browser you've chosen.

Re: Free Synthesizers

Yes. Essentially you have two speed controls, NVDA's rate control, and
the rate control in Windows. Neither will go above 100 percent. But
let's say the rate control in Windows is set to fifty percent. If you
set NVDA to a hundred percent, it's only going to go as fast as the
Windows control's fifty percent. So if you increase the Windows control,
you increase NVDA's as well, in other words, NVDA can now speak at a
faster rate. Indeed, I'm pretty sure I have my Windows control set to
something like eighty percent and my NVDA control set to fifty or sixty.


This is just like the volume control. If your Windows volume gets turned
down, the NVDA volume will only be so loud, even if it's at a hundred
percent. If you turn up the volume for your sound card, NVDA can be
louder. But neither volume control goes above a hundred percent. Hope
that helps explain it all.
