Arlene,

            Yes, at least up through Outlook 2013.  I haven't tried this post the 2013 version, but given how old the Trust Center is and that these particular settings for Protected View haven't changed in eons I'd presume it probably holds all the way up through the current version.

            As I noted, you do have to do this in each and every office program where you want this feature turned off.

more that doesn't work, the eloquence is no good, and has audio issues that tickets were filed on long time a go, and the vocalizer has more voices at this point, but that won't be the case soon, and I'd pay more because I get good customer service with code factory's compeditor

I just don't see why you must buy Tiflatechnia version if its more
expensive, and you don't get eloquence with it. Seems more money

Re: Facebook with NVDA

Well, that is true. Like the saying goes. If it's not broke don't fix it.
But not always true. Sites change and so does the code! So, we have to go
with the changes weather we like it or not!There is nothing we can do about
it! I don't know if it's just Microsoft doing it. But I think the code
changes to prevent hackers. Still they find ways to do their dirty work.
Also like cars. Computers age as we use them to do what we want them to do!
Just my 2 cents!

Hi, Brian. One of the best computers I have is a 10 year old Del. He's
awesome, stable, and a work horse and not enough Ram room to upgrade to
windows 7. Very sad and depressing and I may have to put Vinux on him or
something. He had XP but a few months ago his antivirus vanished...not good.

We did a cleanout, put it back or tried and all the stuff we cleaned out
returned too. Not lovely good. LOL. But yeah, the new keyboards are
freakish. This one I'm using is a new Del so Del is doing it too. I just
don't get why they have to change everything. Isn't a new windows enough to

Sharni-Lee (and other interested parties),

Here are the step-by-step directions I've put together for this since the question gets asked repeatedly:

To turn off Protected Mode for Downloaded MS-Office Documents

This applies in Word, Excel, Access, etc.  You have to do this in each program where you want the nag off.

1.        File Menu, Options Item

2.       In Options Dialog, Trust Center Pane

3.       Once Trust Center Pane is up, activate Trust Center Settings button (or Hit ALT+T)

4.      In Trust Center Settings, Protected View Pane

5.       In Protected View Pane, under the Protected View Group, uncheck whichever of the protected views you’d prefer not to deal with.  Leave the Data Execution Prevention Group untouched (and this feature is enabled by default).

Note well:  If you disable Protected View then be very, very certain that you trust the source of the file you intend to open, whether it was sent as an e-mail attachment or downloaded.  Ideally, it should be virus scanned, at a minimum, before you consider opening it.  On many computers your antivirus software or security suite automatically scans anything you download and if you’re sure your setup does this you are reasonably safe in opening files acquired from sources you trust.

Hi,


How do you do that? I regularly exchange files with a writer friend of mine, and I can't scroll normally in Protected view. I hate it!

Hi,


Braille display is working fine now, but I'm wondering if it's possible
to get a snapshot with the experimental (and more accurate, if not
perfect) UEB table, that has all the features of the latest release. If
the Libloui issue has been fixed, using the snapshot I currently have
would just mean I'm stuck with the old problem regardless of fixes,
unless I don't understand how snapshots work, which I will admit is a
possibility.

This morning when I started NVDA, I was told that a new release was available. It went back to February 2016.1. After going to Nvaccess.org, I discovered that NVDA2016.2.1 was available. I did the download and everything is back on track with NVDA.

I gave up and plugged in a normal keyboard till i found a second hand dell with all the normal keys on it.
OK so its only running xp, but it is a lot more productive than the alien designed weird make I used for a while with the spongy hardly moving keys...:-)
The other annoyance with laptops is the mouse pad getting caught under the wrist. I found this old new Dell has actually got a switch in a bit of software in the system tray to stop it working. Bliss.
Only issue is that the context menu is shift and a funtion key the insert and page up and down etc are on the end of the function key row and a special key is where windows key normally is, but hey, the cursors and numeric keys are all where they should be.

Thank you Gene. So I can always just use capslock for the NVDA key?It sounds the easiest to reach while messing with other keys. This computer lap top keyboard is new and none of the keys are where they should be while they made duplicates of others scattered strangely all over the board. LOL. No more 6 pack with page up down home and all that. I miss it. *sniffles* Instead they're scattered all around and not as easy to find. I actually had to label some of the keys and have never had to do that before.
