Upgrading Microsoft Word

Abbie Taylor <abbietaylor945@...>
 

I'm currently using Word 2013 on a 64-bit desktop PC running Windows 10. I'm considering upgrading. I understand Word 2019 is the latest, but is it compatible with NVDA, or should I go to 2016 instead? Is it possible to buy just Word without the office suite? How much does it cost? Thank you in advance for any answers.

Re: NVDA and sounds

 

I had never heard about this concept before your message. How is it? An add-on to perform such a thing would be quite interesting.

JAWS had a way to link sounds with words using the Dictionary manager.
Is there an addon for NVDA that can do the same thing?






Re: row and column titles

Quentin Christensen
 

Normally you place the focus in the leftmost column you want row titles and press NVDA+control+c to set column headers (or topmost row with headers and press NVDA+control+r).

NVDA automatically treats any column to the right of that as having headers.  Doing it this way makes it a little tricker to understand but more flexible - if you have a table with several sets of column headers in different places in different rows for instance. (Or row headers in different columns etc).

NVDA+shift+r or c works fine if I only need a single column title. It does not work if I choose multiple columns. When I press that key command after selecting two or more columns it types the letter  r or c.

Dolphin is not a screen reader, rather it is a company in the U.K. that markets several access technology software products.  Their primary product is the SuperNova Access Suite, which includes a screen reader and screen magnification product.

Dolphin is pretty big in Europe, but not so widely used in the United States, though they have been around for a while.

Re: ie unsafe dolphin users

Brad Snyder
 

True.
Hal got its name from the talking diabolical robot in the movie 2001: A Space Oddity.
The accompanying screen magnification product was called Lunar.  It was similar to ZoomText, in that it was available in both magnification only and magnification with speech.
The original SuperNova product was Hal bundled with the Lunar screen magnification product.  This is similar to Vispero’s current Fusion product.

SuperNova is an interesting product.  I’ve attended a few training seminars presented by Dolphin over the years, but have never really spent much time using it to get the hang of it.  It is really very different from either NVDA or JAWS in both concepts and functionality.

Re: ie unsafe dolphin users

Ian Westerland
 

Hi. The company is "dolphin Industries" and one of its earliest Screen readers was Hal. At present I am trying a Dolphin suite of programs that includes a Webb Browser called webbIE, a Pod catcher, RSS feed program and, I think there is another one in the Suite. My first impression is that these programs are not as user friendly as others around today but its' a bit early to make a final judgement. The programs are a free download and I found them purely by accident when looking around for an Internet Browser to compare with the commonly used Browsers.

Yes, it is more common in Europe but it has always been quite low on the list of preferred screenreaders since its creation 30-odd years ago!

Dolpin is a screen reader. If your ranking screen readers it is usually
ranked as third.
I don't know mch about it besides it's supposedly not as good as job and
that it is commercial so you have to buy it.

Hi

 

Here is a link to a powerpoint that I have just been working on (which is promoting NVDA). It is still a work in progress, and the information is courtesy of the main join the revolution section from the NVDA website.

It is from nvaccess ABOUT section.

 

It is not automated at the moment, and it is only a rough draft. Not sure whether to do one with visuals and no sound; and I can add animations and timings etc. When I am finished with it, I can add it to the powerpoint info I put across the list earlier.

Here is the link https://www.dropbox.com/s/yc04mlsf1m9zigo/Join%20the%20NVDA%20revolution%21.pptx?dl=0

Dolphin is not a screen reader, rather it is a company in the U.K. that markets several access technology software products.  Their primary product is the SuperNova Access Suite, which includes a screen reader and screen magnification product.
Dolphin is pretty big in Europe, but not so widely used in the United States, though they have been around for a while.
