Re: outlook 2016 and NVDA 2019.1.1: nvda's focus does not go to next/previous message after pressing up/down key in message list

J.G
 

Hello,

thanks for help. first of all, I must have updated it due to incompatibility between nvda report addon and nvda screen reader, because, she has got very, very old version of nvda. She told me, it was 2013.x.
I will try both your suggestions even I thought that object navigation is automatically activated. Also I will try to search for possible updates of office. Is there any setting in outlook which should be also changed for better performance?

again, thanks for all your help.

regards, Jožef

Re: nvda said speak characters on/off

Sorry, I haven't been following this thread but have you turned on the character echo feature?  If not this might help.


If you already tried this I am sorry for suggesting it again.

Another thing I forgot was my friend Max who drives Handy dart he played the

Try holding the nvda key and press 2 on the number row of keys. It should say speak typed characters on and then you're good to go.

Hi all,


I've had NVDA installed for a while now but I'm just getting around to
possibly starting to use it.


I've been using jaws for years and when it speaks it comes through my
external speakers that are plugged into my laptop via the USB port
because the earphone jack doesn't work, but I started NVDA yesterday and
the voice was coming through the laptop's internal speaker, and it was
very low as well. How do I fix this so it comes through my external
speakers as well?


Btw strangely enough, I opened the NVDA preferences and changed the
Eloquence voice I was using and it immediately got louder although it
was still coming through the laptop and not the external speakers. Also,
after making changes in preferences I hit the okay button but it didn't
take me out of preferences. I got out of preferences by hitting alt-f4
but when I did that the volume of the voice went back down again.


One more thing, when I started NVDA yesterday the volume was so low that
I couldn't really hear it but it sounded like it was offering me an NVDA
update. I have no idea if it was installed though because since I
couldn't really hear what it was saying I couldn't really tell what
option I chose when it offered me the update.


Any help with any of this will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Custom Hot Key Disappears On NVDA Update

 

Hi,
Yep, that confirms that it didn't work for some reason.
I think there is an issue filed on GitHub regarding this problem - will need to double-check once I fully recover from the afterglow I'm experiencing which is making into elimination rounds in a recent national speech tournament (will talk about it later and somewhere else). Right now, the important thing is making sure shortcut key problem is addressed.
Cheers,
Joseph

My hot key disappears each time I update NVDA. The reason for this
is, I don't use the desktop shortcut and I also use a different hot
key than the default. I prefer to assign the hot key ALT+CONTROL+V
and I use the LNK found at C:\programdata\Microsoft\Windows\Start
Menu\Programs\NVDA to do this. It would be nice if the NVDA
install/update was smart enough to honor custom configurations like
mine.







Re: question from a new NVDA user

Gene
 

Your discussion of the version of Eloquence you are using indicates that it is one of the illegal add-on versions.  The list doesn't support illegal software and won't answer questions about how to use it. 
 
As for your other question, open the voice settings.  You can use control NVDA key v.
 
Tab around and you will get to a combo box where you adjust the setting for the sound card that should be used by the voice.  Set it for the one you want. 
 
I'll add that what I said is not supporting or helping with an illegal add-on because what I explained applies to any voice you use.

Re: NVDA and Combo Boxes, Agreements?

Gene
 

In browse mode settings, turn off use screen layout if supported.  That will cause you to see every individual control and link on its own line.  You are probably seeing a group of combo boxes together because use screen layout is on.  To turn it off, uncheck it with the space bar, activate the ok button and, if you don't have NVDA set to save settings on exit, save the new setting permanently with control NVDA key c.  To get into browse mode, you can use the command control NVDA key b.
 
This is one more example of why use screen layout should be off by default.  Who knows how many people have problems because they don't know about the command and having it off is better in many instances.
 
It may be desirable to have it on in certain instances such as on forum discussion pages but most of the time, it is better to have it off.

Hello NVDA group,

If someone is familiar with registering as an author with Barnes and
Noble Press, this is what this email post is generated from.

When combo boxes are present, and the order of states in the US for
example, is read as a group on one line, how do I go about separating
them out to indicate my state of residence?

When reading an agreement with NVDA, how does one accept or reject if
the choices are not heard at the outset, during, or end of the
agreement text?
Thanks in advance.
