Hi Joseph,

That surprises me. As I say, unless you have object descriptions turned
off, you will hear the subject again, when you enter the message.

No big deal, it just takes longer, and makes JAWS more efficient <Smile>.

All the best

Steve

Hi,
The ability to search for NVDA settings is something NVDA developers would
like to see, too.
As for Outlook message headers, I don't hear other header info spoken in
Office 365 (February 2019 release).
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,

That's really nothing to do with the differences between JAWS and NVDA,
performing with the same programs.

NVDA is a lot more responsive using Outlook, but it is not very good at
reading the unread messages in the folder tree.

It also insists on reading the subject line again when you open a message,
though I believe you can kill this by making a profile and turning off
object descriptions.

JAWS is more intuitive, just turn off reading message headers in outlook
verbosity.

This is why I say that JAWS is much more intuitive, you have to dive into
some techie detail to figure out some of NVDA's settings. There is also no
search for settings in NVDA, I'd like to see this kind of thing, JAWS does
it so well.

All the best

Hi,

In Windows 10, it still has a hook loaded, but I think that's what
gives it the advantage.

You can also run a portable version of JAWS without the hook though.

Hi all,



With all this talk about 64-bit NVDA would be a lot better, I have to
say that NVDA, using CodeFactory's Eloquence add-on, is more
responsive for me now than JAWS.



Also, another piece of good news, my Windows settings in Control
Panel in Windows 10 is now accessible with NVDA, whereas for ages, it
wouldn't speak any of that window. I realise it was limited to a few
configurations, but it sure was annoying at the time. I also realise
that these problems are borne of problems with UIA, rather than
problems with NVDA.



In short, although I have, and will continue to, use JAWS for a while
yet,
I
think that NVDA is coming on in leaps and bounds.



But there are one or two very silly things about NVDA. For example,
it won't read how many messages are unread in a folder, when you
Control+Y in Outlook. This is seriously annoying to me and one
reason I couldn't use it full time. It is visually there, and JAWS
reads it, so in my view, by now, NVDA should read it too.



Also, flat review and object nav is not as intuitive as the JAWS cursor.
You can't just do a screen find, and click on it. We really need an
equivalent to Hotspot Clicker in NVDA as well.



I keep coming back to this, because I want NVDA to be the go-to
screen reader for everyone, but I think JAWS still has a little more
polish than NVDA.



Just one guy's opinion, don't shoot me.



All the best

Re: OK died in the wool JAWS user using NVDA

 

Hi,
Steve is correct: NVDA Will indeed read the subject line because it is the
title of the temporary document that opens (technical: focus event).

Hi Andrew.

Well, I'm a YouTuber and since Microsoft took Movie Maker out, I've
been left hanging.

I to am looking for someone to create an addon or something to use
with Plotagon which is a fun program to play with. A program that
brings your thoughts to life.

Do you have a Movie Maker file?

Yes, it reads the subject and the body when you open it.

If however, you turn off object descriptions, it won't read the subject when
you go into the message.

I have had to create an Outlook profile just to do that.

Extra stuff announced

Howard Traxler <howard@...>
 

GM all,


When I'm looking at a list of files in a folder, as I go down the list, NVDA interjects extra words in addition to what's on the line.  These must be column headers or something?  Someone told me, a long time ago, where in NVDA I can go to turn that off. Very sorry I didn't save that note or write it down somewhere. Could someone please tell me again?  I'll save it this time.


Thank you.


Howard


Re: video editting

Chantelle Buys
 

Hi.

I've found an old Movie Maker file and so, I'm using Movie Maker again.

Only problem now is that I also have to convert some of my video files
with Handbrake which sometimes also doesn't help much.

I to am wondering if there's any video editor that would work with NVDA?

Microsoft aren't really helping either.

Re: OK died in the wool JAWS user using NVDA

 

Hi,
The ability to search for NVDA settings is something NVDA developers would
like to see, too.
As for Outlook message headers, I don't hear other header info spoken in
Office 365 (February 2019 release).
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,

That's really nothing to do with the differences between JAWS and NVDA,
performing with the same programs.

NVDA is a lot more responsive using Outlook, but it is not very good at
reading the unread messages in the folder tree.

It also insists on reading the subject line again when you open a message,
though I believe you can kill this by making a profile and turning off
object descriptions.

JAWS is more intuitive, just turn off reading message headers in outlook
verbosity.

This is why I say that JAWS is much more intuitive, you have to dive into
some techie detail to figure out some of NVDA's settings. There is also no
search for settings in NVDA, I'd like to see this kind of thing, JAWS does
it so well.

All the best

Steve

Hi,

In Windows 10, it still has a hook loaded, but I think that's what
gives it the advantage.

You can also run a portable version of JAWS without the hook though.

Hi all,



With all this talk about 64-bit NVDA would be a lot better, I have to
say that NVDA, using CodeFactory's Eloquence add-on, is more
responsive for me now than JAWS.



Also, another piece of good news, my Windows settings in Control
Panel in Windows 10 is now accessible with NVDA, whereas for ages, it
wouldn't speak any of that window. I realise it was limited to a few
configurations, but it sure was annoying at the time. I also realise
that these problems are borne of problems with UIA, rather than
problems with NVDA.



In short, although I have, and will continue to, use JAWS for a while
yet,
I
think that NVDA is coming on in leaps and bounds.



But there are one or two very silly things about NVDA. For example,
it won't read how many messages are unread in a folder, when you
Control+Y in Outlook. This is seriously annoying to me and one
reason I couldn't use it full time. It is visually there, and JAWS
reads it, so in my view, by now, NVDA should read it too.



Also, flat review and object nav is not as intuitive as the JAWS cursor.
You can't just do a screen find, and click on it. We really need an
equivalent to Hotspot Clicker in NVDA as well.



I keep coming back to this, because I want NVDA to be the go-to
screen reader for everyone, but I think JAWS still has a little more
polish than NVDA.



Just one guy's opinion, don't shoot me.



All the best


Steve

This professional machine seems to do things in its own way and f3 didn’t do anything. But I’m satisfied at the moment. Did you read my message about attachments?

Cheers, Steve

After redoing the change, NVDA+CTRL+C should do the trick for you.
I'd think it won't affect any future update of the program since it's just a custom setting, nothing systematical so to speak.

Hi list, Please can you help? I’m using a Windows 10 Professional machine with 64 bit and it’s a quodcore running NVDA the latest version as far as I know and Windows 10 Professional.

shortly after I bought my latest machine I pressed the nvda key with f3 to change to words so the word is spoken when you press the spacebar. Unfortunately it has somehow gone back to characters ie spoken after each character press which is annoying and I don’t seem to be able to fix this. So is there a better way to permanently have NVDA speak only words ie a word after I’ve pressed the spacebar and save this setting as somehow I’ve unsaved it – does it change after an update of NVDA or a general update of anything on my pc?

Thanks for any help, Steve

Jaws seems unable any more to read some of the flags on Outlook Express and live mail.OK discontinued software but many still use them like myself with the former. Its only Microsoft who seem to not want to develop whatwas a very capable email and newsgroup program and chose to use the awfully limited windows 10 mail instead or force everyone down the full outlook route.

Hi,

In Windows 10, it still has a hook loaded, but I think that's what gives it
the advantage.

You can also run a portable version of JAWS without the hook though.

All the best

I do agree that although the screen and other navigation modes are powerful,
the issue is the way to use them for those not interested in understanding
objects children and all of that layered stuff. Flat review only seems to be
utilising half of the power, but since I am not sure what Jaws actually is
doing behind the scenes, given they probably harvest similar data, I'll
leave it at that.
I do notice though that even today, Jaws has a video interceptor loaded in
windows 7.

Hi all,



With all this talk about 64-bit NVDA would be a lot better, I have to say
that NVDA, using CodeFactory's Eloquence add-on, is more responsive for me
now than JAWS.



Also, another piece of good news, my Windows settings in Control Panel in
Windows 10 is now accessible with NVDA, whereas for ages, it wouldn't
speak
any of that window. I realise it was limited to a few configurations, but
it sure was annoying at the time. I also realise that these problems are
borne of problems with UIA, rather than problems with NVDA.



In short, although I have, and will continue to, use JAWS for a while yet,
I
think that NVDA is coming on in leaps and bounds.



But there are one or two very silly things about NVDA. For example, it
won't read how many messages are unread in a folder, when you Control+Y in
Outlook. This is seriously annoying to me and one reason I couldn't use
it
full time. It is visually there, and JAWS reads it, so in my view, by
now,
NVDA should read it too.



Also, flat review and object nav is not as intuitive as the JAWS cursor.
You can't just do a screen find, and click on it. We really need an
equivalent to Hotspot Clicker in NVDA as well.



I keep coming back to this, because I want NVDA to be the go-to screen
reader for everyone, but I think JAWS still has a little more polish than
NVDA.



Just one guy's opinion, don't shoot me.



All the best


Steve

Check this link, download one NVDA add on, check its documentation
and tell whether its accessible or not.

Re: object navigation

Gene
 

I see others have told you how to find these documents.  They are actually html documents available in NVDA.  If you want to get to them more conveniently or read them with another screen-reader you are more familiar with or like the speech better with until you investigate other synthesizers you might want to use with NVDA, you can bookmark the pages just as you would any Internet Page.

That's actually quite helpful. I've already applied these principles
and have actually gotten some objects.

I do not own these documents, unless they come with the NVDA
installation. But I would definitely appreciate them.
