Crashing of Chrome under some circumstances I think. But I've seen other bits an pieces later including an apparent new version which has not actually appeared yet. I asked on the devel list but nobody answered it there either.
Strangely I am having issues with word slow downs on the rc and have now had to use the new alpha which seems to be better.

Hi friends,
I was wondering if some one has found some similar voice to ETI

It need not be exactly same but some what close to it in terms of clarity.

Evidently, it isn't an certified add-on.  I hope someone gets it certified because it may be useful for a lot of people who don't know about it.  It appears that Google doesn't know about this site.

accessibility of NVDA and MS Office 2016 and the best way to set it up.
Pascal,

            It will be helpful if you can get specific about which Office program (or programs) you're having issues with, as there are a few things that may apply to all of them, but most will be specific to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.

            As Sarah has mentioned, there is actually a lot of material on the group archive regarding all of the various Office programs and NVDA.  Office 365 is directly based on Office 2016, so at the individual program controls level the two should be virtually identical.

            If you wish to search the archive, located at https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/topics, there is a Search button at the very top of the page.  There are two important notes about doing searches on Groups.io (probably more, but these are the biggies):  If you are looking for something like Word 2016 make sure to enter it within quotes, otherwise you'll get every message that has either the word "word" or 2016, rather than someone mentioning "Word 2016".  The search results are also initially returned at the individual message level, which isn't particularly helpful, at least to me,others prefer it.  I far prefer to see topics.  To make that happen, activate the "Tools" button, check the "collapse topics" checkbox and, voila, the search results are now shown as topics.

            One thing I've written up with regard to using Office that many seem to find useful is:  Adjusting Protected View Settings in MS-Office Programs
I cannot stand having these on by default and have disabled them in every Office program so that I'm not being endlessly nagged.  And those warnings are even more annoying when using a screen reader.  I only open attachments produced using MS-Office from sources I know I can trust, so I do not need nor want protected view.   This little reference document I threw together might prove helpful, too:  It contains a list of direct links to the Microsoft webpages with the keyboard shortcuts for each one of the major Office suite programs, which covers all the recent versions.

Not much in the archives but here's a thread that might help. And another thread that might help as well. There are a lot of searches in the archives re office 2016 but most are with 365 so I don't know if those are the same. Here is the search page

I don't use office on a windows machine although I know how a little bit.

Take care

Re: HELP! LOST ALL MY ADD-ONS!!!

 

Clarissa,

           The latest Windows 10 update that has been released was Version 1809.  The spring 2019 release has not occurred yet, and will not until May 2019, and that's if it isn't delayed again.

           I would very strongly suggest you contact the Microsoft Disability Help Desk as soon as possible on (800) 936-5900.  If you were running Version 1803 and this was the 1809 update, it can probably be rolled back.   It should not have caused this issue with NVDA if it worked normally.   It is critical that you figure out what's going on in regard to your Windows situation before anyone can move on to giving you good advice regarding how to proceed, or not proceed, with NVDA.

HELP! LOST ALL MY ADD-ONS!!!

Clarissa Mitchell
 

Earlier today, I turned my computer on, and it was running so slowly,
and seemingly wasn't doing anything. So I shut it down, when I turned
it on again, I was greeted with a "Welcome to Windows" page in
Microsoft Edge. Apparently, I just got the big April update and didn't
even know it! But what really took the cake was when I discovered that
NVDA had reverted to the Windows one-core voices, and all my add-ons
are gone! I also lost some of my Desktop shortcuts! Not all of them
though. Can I do a system restore, or do I have to re-create all those
shortcuts and re-download all my add-ons? I thought I had a portable
copy of NVDA on a flash drive somewhere, but apparently I don't. Any
help would be appreciated. Thanks.


Re: Adding Time-Stop Marks to Audio Tracks

there is a very small mp3 player which also can be used to speed up the reading of books and it does to some extent remember where you left off.

You find it by using the send to menu, and "play" the file with it. F5 speeds up, f4 slows back down and f10 is the menu. It is in Italian, however. Called "play this."

If you want to use Winamp, you may.  I don't know about other programs such as VLC player.  This requires a few steps but it is very logical.  Also, there is an NVDA Winamp add-on.  I don't know what different functions it has. 
 
To do this mmanually, do the following:
When you are at the point where you want to make the bookmark, pause play by pressing c.
Open the Winamp jump to time dialog, control j.
You are in a field that shows the current time position you are in.
NVDA says selected.  That means you don't have to select it.  Simply use control c to paste it to the clipboard.
Paste the time into a Notepad file and save it with whatever name you want wherever you want.
The next time you want to resume reading and use the manually created book mark equivalent, open the Notepad file, select the time with control a for select all, and copy it to the clipboard.
Close Notepad if you wish.
Start the file playing in Winamp.  Pause it so you can hear your screen-reader easily.
Open the jump to time dialog, control j.
Paste the time in with control v. 
Press enter.
You are now at the place where you want to resume.
 
This may sound like a lot of steps but they are very logical and use concepts, such as copy and paste that are commonly used in Windows and Windows programs.  If you try this two or three times, you may find it is much easier than it may sound when reading.

Are you using Winamp with JAWS or NVDA?  JAWS has a feature that allows you to make a book mark although that isn't part of the actual program.  I don't know if NVDA has an add-on that does this.  Whether it does or not, you can manually make the equivalent of one. If you want, I'll explain how.

Well if you have the program name and can point a developer or add on writer at it then you may get some replies. I've never used it but from your description it sounds like its not a proper windows bit of software and that nvda therefore finds it hard to figure out what is on the screen.
Have you explored it with object and screen navigation to see if any of the key buttons, menus or edit fields can be seen by nvda that way?

Hi all,

Does anyone use a Dymo label printer? The only way I can find to enter
text in a label is to use the mouse to click in the label. I guess I’m
lucky enough to have enough sight to be able to use a mouse, However, I
want an answer for those who do not have enough sight to use the mouse.

Although I always sincerely appreciate everyone’s suggestions, I really
want to hear from anyone who actually uses the program and has solved the
problem.

Have a great weekend.

Many thanks,

  1. Launch chrome. I have the same trouble with Firefox
  2. Go to web.telegram.org
  3. Put your phone number in.
  4. click next
  5. Try to click the "OK button. I cannot do this, yet other people I know have done this successfully. I've tried
  6. 1 object navigation
  7. 2 screen review
  8. 3 document review
  9. 4 routing and left clicking with the result that nvda says "there is no object here" or "object has no location"
  10. 5. Left clicking with the mouse after trying to rout
  11. 6. Trying to use narrator with the result that that dialogue never reads.

So does anyone have any tips here? I cannot do a video as my phone number will be revealed and I don't want that.

Re: dropbox rules sharing links

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi Brian


When you go back and look at it it is more  if you have 3 devices accessing the one account. When i looked it said i had 4 one this machine latest, same machine with a older hard drive not the SSD and a old duel core computer which I used until i got this one fix. Removed the other 3 so it only shows the one and also took off the one for the browser when i was with another internet provider.


So i guess my drop box sharing via a folder is still good as well as all the links on the website.


the last time they changed some thing radically i had to re link all the links that was a pain.

So no message now saying about more than 3 devices as there is only the one now.
