Re: NVDA and Excel

Ralf Kefferpuetz
 

Hello,

I don’t have those symptoms with Office 365 and I’m a full time excel worker. From my point of view there are 3 other criterias that gives Excel and NVDA a poor experience.

  1. The way cells are spoken: NVDA speaks first the cell content and at the end the cell coordinates. This is very contra-productive when dealing with long cell contents. The cell content should always be spoken at the end.
  2. Dropdown lists are not accessible and spoken
  3. autoFilter cells are not announced as AutoFilter, so we don’t know if the column has a autoFilter dropdown.

 

Regards,

  Ralf

Re: NVDA and Excel

Antony Stone
 

Does this happen if you start Excel and just add some simple stuff to a few
cells, or is it only if you open a pre-existing spreadsheet?

If it's when you open a pre-existing spreadsheet, does the problem occur only
with one specific spreadsheet, or with several?

What other applications do you generally use, which do not have this problem?

Hi all,
Recently there were some queries in regards to whether NV Access was considering to participate in Google Summer of Code 2019. I am happy to say that NV Access has decided to apply to be a Google Summer of Code 2019 organisation and our application is ready for submission.
We will not know if we were successful until February 27, but we will let everyone here know once we find out.
If we are successful, we will be very excited to see what project proposals students come up with for NVDA. I believe that students can start submitting proposals in March.
To aide in planning your proposals, and as required by the Google Summer of Code program, NV Access has created a Google Summer of Code 2019 Ideas page: http://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/GSOC-2019-Ideas-List
As it says on the page, we will consider proposals on any open issue that is appropriately sized for Google Summer of Code, but the above ideas list are just some that we have hand-picked as we believe they are the right size and will have a good impact on the NVDA project. We may also add to the list before the submission date.
If you are a student planning to submit a proposal through Google Summer of Code this year and you have not yet talked to Reef or I directly, we encourage you to contact us so that we are aware of your interest ahead of time, and we can confirm whether or not we believe we would be able to mentor you in relation to your particular project topics you are proposing.
Based on the size of NV Access it is most likely we will only take one or two students this year.
NV Access will make further official statements in late February if we find out we were successful.
Mick

Re: Suggest like clip copy addons

I have been very naughty with my add ons and marked up all the manifest files as o.K. till the next version comes out. OK it might bite me in the bum, but one gets fed up of reviewing add ons every time one downloads a new alpha snapshot. I have not touched the ones in my main stable copy so come the next version of nvda it will still flag any issues.

Re: help nvda teem

I think, though it can be instructive to look at processor usage generally of what is running, just in case a misbehaving program or service is the culprit.
Its not much good trying to fix an issue by loading the processor more. Though its unlikely to do harm, its only on a very slow machine that any fiddling of priorities might result in a change.

Hi,
As Gene pointed out on another post, I'm really skeptical that boosting NVDA's priority would magically solve this problem. Rather, I'm afraid we're pointing the original poster to an untested realm. Therefore, I'd like to ask the community to not follow this advice (I rarely say this kind of thing, but given the circumstances, I'm inclined to tell you this).
