Not got the latest myself, but somebody told me that in latest Outlook deleting an account can, at times delete all accounts completely. Whether this is due to screenreaders not seeing a checkbox or if its a bug in Outlook I have no idea. I'm only mentioning it in case anyone tries it and to be particularly careful everything is backed up just in case!

Could this be due to the UIA implimentation for Word, which has been I think made optional in some other builds as problems have surfaced in Microsofts UIA implimentation.
Itf it still works OK on the release version then this may well be the cause.

Hello list. Is anyone having issues with latest alpha of NVDA and latest
version of Outlook 365? I can't seem to write messages, or properly
reply to them. I can fill out the email address, and the subject. At
that point, I cannot tab to the message body. I'm really starting to
like Outlook, and would like to use it again, very soon.

Dear all list
Sorry for a bit out of topic but does any of you guys have experience
on using e-mail on mail app from Microsoft in the windows 10.
My thought it’s very nice on accessibility but we don’t know if the
e-mail including an attachment and quite hard to download attach file
When using Gmail or YahooMail from browser that we know if there are
an attachment.
Nowadays Yahoo will closed classic e-mail view function from FEB and
right now Mail application in the windows 10 quite good for e-mail
client
So guys I would like to send the feedback to Microsoft developer or if
some of you guys have similarly issues could you please post this
matter to developer forum or any idea please share with me
Thank you in advance

Windows 10 mail app

Robert Doc Wright godfearer
 

Are there plans to work more with this app? it is doing well for the most part. there is a mild problem. When I escape an email instead of showing me the list of emails it moves to the navigation dialog box. also is there a way that i can create a hot key to jump to "all mail" to switch to another account?Right now I have to tab to all mail, choose the next account and sometimes shift tab to see the list.

Re: Can a braille note mPower 18 cell unit be used

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi Joseph


it is up and running now. I can type on the key board on the computer and what ever i type there it comes out on the unit plus what ever i type on the braille keyboard on the unit it does it also on the braille display.


I think i might of missed a step when i put it into screen reader mode on the unit told it was serial etccan not remember if it was set then went back up in nvda told it again what display it was also set it from serial to usb or was it the other way then it started working.


I will pay around with it more to make sure it is working well but seems it is.


Thanks Joseph.

Hi,

Okay, when you get errors like this, I’d like to see a log output so I can take a look at what might be happening (among other things, be sure to enter braille terminal from BrailleNote and set the port to serial unless the unit runs really old KeySoft versions (say, prior to 7.5)).

Hi Joseph

 

Just tried it and got a error saying it could not be loaded. I also chose the com1 port for serial. I am guessing now I have to locate the driver for it off the net then install it then repeat the process?

 

If i get it up and running because I am a keyboard user is it a matter of then using your arrow keys let nvda read it out and feel it on the display what it said.

 

I only know the basic's  from A to Z plus some punctuation only grade one stuff.

 

Am I also guessing if it works as long as I repeat the process for another computer I might be able to get the other one up and running 2.

 

Thanks for your help. I am just starting to learn braille but this will be the first time using it on a computer of which i sit in front of more so hopefully might pick it up quicker.

Hi guys

 

I have been given one of these units plus another  or the BrailleNote QT with a qwerty keyboard where the other has a braille keyboard on it be used with NVDA

 

These units when you look at them are about 12 years old or maybe 13.

 

They are both 18 cell unit or is it called braille displays at the bottom of them on the top under the keyboards.

 

Just arrived in the mail is a cable with USB on one end and serial on the other which plugs into the unit and it is powered up.

It came with a Cd which had drivers on it that went up to windows 10 now installed.

 

since I am not a braille display user now do i have to try and find some drivers for it for windows 10 version 1809 of which i do not think there are any.

 

That is my next step to see if there are any.

 

is there settings in NVDA that I have to change?

 

 

any guidance would be great.

 

Or will these simply not work with NVDA? I noted in the units there is a braille display mode but do not think it done any thing.

Or would the braille extender add on do it or do I need some thing else.

Of course you will receive a warning telling you it's not compatible but you can check it to keep working.
And, while others may consider it dangerous, I'll tell you to do it at your own risk. That's what I did. I DID.

Just curious.

Of course you will receive a warning telling you it's not compatible but you can check it to keep working.
And, while others may consider it dangerous, I'll tell you to do it at your own risk. That's what I did. I DID.

Re: Speaker pops.

Gene
 

Do you hear pops only when you use your screen-reader?  It sounds like a driver problem.  But if you only hear it with your screen-reader, if you put the question on a sighted list, I think you should ask if there is an update to your sound card driver because they won't know what to tell you if you say you only hear the pops when your screen-reader is speaking.

Last night I received a large update to windows.  I suppose other windows
users' did as well.  Ever since I am hearing fairly loud pops in my
speakers every few minutes.  So far it doesn't seem to be related to
anything I am doing but time and experience may reveal something.  I wonder
if anyone else is also hearing pops.  I'm going to post this same question
on a sighted list to figure out if it is screen reader related.

Re: Control Usage Assistant add-on Breaks Mozilla Apps Enhancements.

 

It's definitely a good advice.
However, one always can set which keystroke is going to do what, even when it comes to add-on, I guess.
So I think it's not different in this case, it's just a matter of try workarounds and see what works and what don't.
P.S.: I'm not sure if this add-on really can have its hotkey changed, although I strongly think so.

Re: Control Usage Assistant add-on Breaks Mozilla Apps Enhancements.

 

Hi,
This can be explained by the fact that Control Usage Assistant is a global plugin whereas Mozilla Apps is a collection of app modules.
As the author of now discontinued Control Usage Assistant, I advise people to either uninstall it, or change the control help command that comes with that add-on. Or better yet, I advise not assigning any commands to NVDA+H as it might be claimed by NVDA itself later.
Cheers,
joseph

Re: Add-on Updater 19.02 (mandatory update), Windows 10 App Essentials and SPL Studio add-ons retires standalone update facility as of today

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi Jeff


Before hand what you had to do is if you wanted extra functionality in programs people with the knowledge would put together add on to do the trick. But because there was no one location they were found all over the net. A few years back a page  was put together to host these add ons but if you wanted to see if there was a updated version you had to go to the website page where they were then download them and install them into nvda.


Then what happened was a couple of people who created these add ons or at leasst some of them made it so if you had that add on installed it would alert you of the update download it then you would install it. Not all add ons could do it I think there were quite a few of them.


Then Joseph came up with the idea I think windows eyes had some thing simular where with a add on updater feature it would download the add ons if there were updates to them.


Joseph made a add on called add on updater i think it is called which you could install into nvda and then it would look for updated addons maybe once a day not sure and if there were updates it would download them in one hit then you would install them in one hit.

this was only the add ons that had the update feature built into the add on and were installed on your copy of nvda.


The add on updater I think before long will be put into nvda so no add on will be required for it to do it as it will be part of nvda.


So then if the add ons have the feature built in it will do it through the add on updater not by its self like before like weather plus removed at present, and the 2 mentioned in the thread they will be done through the add on updater now not separate like before.


Hopefully it gives you a idea .


if you want to see what add ons there are when nvda is running to to  tools then manage add ons then in the new page tab to get add ons then press the enter key it will then take you to the page where they are hosted.

Well, since I only started using NVDA 2 weeks ago "I don't know what it means." Please explain in newbie language.

Dear NVDA community,
 
In about an hour from now, two significant events will take place (well, really three):
 
  • Add-on Updater 19.02: this is a mandatory update for all Add-on Updater users, as it prepares this ad-on to deal with a pull request that?s being reviewed (regarding new add-on API approach). I?m calling it ?mandatory? because for most add-ons, you need to use Add-on Updater to update add-ons on the fly.
  • Standalone update facility is going away from two add-ons: as of today, version 19.02 of StationPlaylist Studio and Windows 10 App Essentials will retire standalone update facility. You should know by now what this means.
 
Other things to note:
 
  • Windows 10 App Essentials 19.02 will now require Windows 10 Version 1803 (April 2018 Update) or later. If you need to use Windows 10 App Essentials in Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update), you should download 19.01.2 from https://github.com/josephsl/wintenApps/releases/download/19.01/wintenApps-19.01.2.nvda-addon .
  • Current development snapshots of StationPlaylist Studio add-on supports ability to reload or reset add-on settings by pressing Control+NVDA+R once or three times, respectively. This work will show up in March for people using stable and long-term channels.
  • Thanks to recent NVDA alpha snapshots, Action Center and time picker workarounds that shipped with Windows 10 App Essentials for a number of years is now part of NVDA itself. Notably, item status for various quick actions in Action Center (including brightness value) will be announced, as well as better support for time pickers such as alarm configuration in Alarms and Clock app.
 
Cheers,
Joseph
