NVDA and outlook, discussion about columns in message list

Adriani Botez
 

Dear all,

 

I was reading a discussion here in this forum where a jaws user complained that in NVDA you cannot filter columns in Outlook’s message list. Well, this is actually not true. This is not a screen reader setting, it is an outlook setting. If you go to view ribbon and then to advanced view settings and then to columns, you can add, remove and reorder columns as you like. You can remove the column which reports attachment, you can remove the cathegory column, the subject column etc.

 

Actually I can work with NVDA in a very efficient way just by using outlook’s settings efficiently. And this is the most important thing. A screen reader can be very efficient if you know the program you are working with and if you know all the settings that makes your live easier.

 

Best

Adriani

If I remember correctly, it drew from the Google translate service and then Google changed the translate service and the developer couldn't keep updating it.
I may not have all the details straight, but I'm pretty sure I got the gist right.

No red ring of death on that one.

Stationery fighting games can be played. It's not too difficult.
Personally, I liked Pokemon Stadium for the Nintendo 64, but that's getting off topic.

Molly, you can play some video games, like Mortal Kombat. Also, there are plenty of PC and phone games, at Audiogames.net.

That would be cool. What happened to that instant translate add-on?

Kind of on the same subject, but I wonder why there's been nothing
incorporated into screen readers that would enable them to read subtitles.
I know it would serve no practical purpose outside of intertainment, but it
would enable us to watch movies in other languages.

I think the only reason I continue to use portrait is because that is what
I'm used to.
Although, now that you mentioned more screen, I may have to take a look into
the Landscape view.

Not much, yet. But the Xbox one can do a lot more than just video games...
mostly streaming video from Netflix and such too.

Sounds cool, but what purpose can Narrator serve with video games.

Just for navigating the console. It won't read in game text. I wish I could
play xbox.

Not on an xbox. The xbox does have Narrator, though.

It's amazing they left that redring of death as an issue for as long as they
did. That was a major deterrant in renting one of those things.
Hey, can you install NVDA on an X-box?

Agreed. If it weren't for NVDA... Well I don't know where I'd be.

Blackboard6 was that I used at university the only thing that didn't work was some of the assignment submition and review stuff.

Then it went through a patch where accessibility was poor.

Now there a few more new laws and rules, and while people still make inaccessible stuff, it seems to be good if people at least the big companies try at least.

And a lot of tools have abilities to make things accessibil and even encourage it.

Well google and android, it works ok, apple the same.

Its my view that microsoft never got it right.

The keyboard is for windows not touchscreens.

Now where I have had to use the mouse with something I can, but some stuff is really quite hard to do, I mean the blind can use touch and mouse in windows but its far from easy to do.

Now that doesn't mean you can't use it but its a bit owneriss right now.

You know, come to think of it, what is the point of a touch screen on
