Re: nvda not reading letters in excel cell when using f2 to edit the cell contents

Quentin Christensen
 

As others mentioned, we believed we had fixed this, certainly at least for Office 2016 and 365 with NVDA 2019.1.

Firstly, make sure you have rebooted the computer since updating NVDA (particularly for laptops, since a lot of people simply close the lid rather than shut down Windows).

Next, try the suggestion to uncheck allow editing in cells and see if that fixes it.

Finally, try restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled (NVDA+q then down arrow to restart with addons disabled and press enter).

And if none of those things work, could you please send me a copy of your NVDA log to info@...

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi.

Well, I don't know which version of Office is 1/3, but I recommend updating to 2019.1.1 and let us know how that treats you.

Re: Hemingway Editor - Command for Colors with NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi David,

I like Hemingway, although  I wish it had more keystrokes for things like jumping to the next text of concern.  Anyway, there isn't a keystroke directly to toggle reporting of colours on and off, but it is in NVDA's document formatting settings.  Press NVDA+control+d to open the document formatting settings directly.  Then, either press alt+c or tab until the you are on "color" (it's the sixth option, so not too far down).  Press spacebar to check or uncheck as desired.

Colour changes are then reported in Hemingway as you navigate or read through the text.  Note that it counts the space between sentences as having a white background, so if you have two sentences which are hard to read it will note the change to the background between sentences.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi NVDA Group,

I am using the Hemingway Editor application, which is an editing tool
for writers.
Output is given in color schemes, and wonder what is the command to
turn on and off colors with NVDA?

I looked online but could not find the command for this. Thanks in advance.

Re: How to use windows 10 OCR with NVDA can anyone describe how to say NVDA and windows 10 OCR up to use with a flatbed scanner.

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi David,

Late replying, but it appears no one else has.  The OCR feature built-in to Windows 10 works on images already on your computer (or on web pages, etc).  To scan from a flatbed scanner, you will need to use the software that came with the scanner - or purchase or download other software to use the scanner.  Scanners vary greatly, I have known some with software which was completely inaccessible and others which worked really well.  On some, the software might not be very accessible, but you may be able to set it up so you simply have to press a button on the scanner to make it scan to a useable document.

Back in 2017 after we introduced the built-in OCR, I included an introduction to it in our In-Process blog.  I included an activity to run OCR on an image on the page using either the in-built OCR (Windows 10) or the add-on (Windows 7 or 8).  While the activity talked about 2017.3, it works the same with any later version as well: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/in-process-5th-october-2017/

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Google Chrome and NVDA

Gene
 

I haven't tried using the go back command much in Chrome.  I don't know what happens now.  When I tried it in an older version of the program I wasn't reliably taken back to where I had left off on the previous page.  I was taken back to the top the one or two times I tried the command.  That made the procedure worthless.  My method works because the former page is always opened and you go back to the page and are where you were.  The browser or screen-reader doesn't have to remember where you were and take you back to that place.

Re: problem with NVDA screen reader

hi


If you do want to try out edge the microsoft edge dev desk top version seems to work very nice.


the app version works ok but now with this new version i would use that .


The link to this version is https://www.microsoftedgeinsider.com/en-us/?form=MO12FO&OCID=MO12FO

It is chromium based and is almost like chrome its self in the lay out.


If you used chrome before you would know what i mean.


Hopefully before long i got a basic tutorial going up for it this weekend to the web site.

Plus it will make it a lot easier for some one to locate it and take it for a test drive if you get what i mean.

Re: Google Chrome and NVDA

Hi


have you got it to open in tabs or windows?


i think the default is tabs in google chrome.


if you are using tabs or not sure do the following use the CTRL + 1 to 9.


For example if there are only 3 tabs you would use from CTRL + 1 to 3.



I think on mine if i remember right i set a home page and made that one default  and it allows me to use the alt key + left arrow key to go back a page or the opposite if i have already been to that page just before.

It says some thing like open in a new page and the web address is put in.


Plus i can also use the CTRL key + 1 to 9 if needed.

OK, and now this topic is locked.   As was previously noted, NVDA itself does not run under Linux.  The synth under discussion, then, cannot be used with NVDA.  The two topics are entirely disjoint.

If further discussion with members of the NVDA group is desired, then please take it to the Chat Subgroup:

Hi Group,


VoxIm was the rough equivalent of the old Eloquence synthesizer ported to Linux in Bebbion and Ubuntu flavors.

Hi.

Well its confirmed from auralux.

They are not sure at least the person that spoke to me isn't, but you can
run a single licence for user under wsl and if that addon works in nvda
and you want it then thats probably ok.

However I really think its a bit stupid to do all that to run speech.

A question could be though, if you got a raspberry pi or something
little, connected to a computer, or speaker running linux natively,
could you run voxsin from that then it could be like one of those serial
synths I guess again a bit overkill but it makes sence.

To be honest, knowing what I know I'd try speechhub again.

I already explained yesterday how to go back in a way that has a good chance of working well and will save a lot of diagnostics that may or may not accomplish anything.  Use shift enter when following a link.  the link will open in a new window.  Use alt f4 to close the window.  You will be back exactly where you were on the other page on the link you followed.
 
I should add that it may be that you will have an inconvenience doing this.  You'll have to see.  I haven't tried it enough to know if it is a general problem or just an annoyance on one very old machine I have.  You may see the original page in the new window and you may need to alt tab then release alt tab and then alt tab again to get to the proper window.

Hello,

From what I know, WSL allows you to use NVDA because Linux runs in the shell. Voxin is not required. If someone is talking about running NVDA from within Linux, I believe that this is beyond the scope of this list because this is not something supported by NVAccess, and most users on this list run Windows, not Linux.

thanks.
