Re: Resetting NVDA's keystrokes

Andre Fisher
 

Hi.

If you configured some NVDA shortcuts, go to the user directory, then look for gestures.ini. You can delete that file.


Re: Resetting NVDA's keystrokes

Luke Davis
 

What is the name of the key you are looking for?
We can just tell you what it's supposed to be.

But that said, you already have "the default keymap file", or as close to it as you can probably get. Press NVDA+n, then h (opens the help menu), then q (opens the commands quick reference).

Resetting NVDA's keystrokes

 

Hi,
Today I realised that quite a while ago I had changed an NVDA keystroke regarding mouse clicks.
Now, as I got used to the laptop layout I would like to have it as this was by default.
Is there a way of doing it?
If not, could anyone please send me the default keymap file (if NVDA has one)?

Thanks a lot.

WeatherPlus: NVDA+W Still not working

Rob Hudson <rob_hudson_3182@...>
 

Current version NVDA and WP, on windows 10.
I purged every file of previous weather plus installations. Installed 6.5 just now.
For curiosity, I pressed NVDA+w. I got a message that the ID was not set.
I went and loaded a city:
usmn 12782415
I could go through all the checkboxes I ticked, if that would help narrow the error down.
In any case the hotkey NVDA+W now doesn't work, but forecast, NVDA+Shift+W, does.
ERROR - scriptHandler.executeScript (05:00:52.690):
error executing script: <bound method GlobalPlugin.script_announceWeather of <globalPlugins.Weather_Plus.GlobalPlugin object at 0x060420F0>> with gesture u'NVDA+w'

Weather_Plus6.5 update available

Adriano Barbieri
 

Goodmorning everyone,


Changes in this version:
• Fixed a couple of bugs in sound effects reproduction;
a couple of "for" cycles with incorrect maximum values ​​caused the call to a non-existent sound effect.
• Fixed bug in local time in "details";
The conversion of time in 12 hours gave an error.
• Fixed a bug in the Yahoo Weather Forecast report;
In some cities the forecasts start from the previous day and not from the current one.
The correction of these cities involves the loss of the last days of forecast proportional to the mismatch of the dates (if the forecast days are set to 10).


Weather_Plus can update itself, however you can download it from the following pages:
http://www.nvda.it/files/plugin/weather_plus6.5.nvda-addon
Or:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/Weather_Plus.en.html
I I wish thank Noelia, Abdel, Rémy, Zvonimir and all the translators for support this addon.


Greetings
Adriano



Re: Adding Time-Stop Marks to Audio Tracks

It appears very unlikely that the extended Winamp Add-on has the ability to set time markers.  The description says nothing about this ability.
 
This add-on, developed by Carlos, who contributed a lot to the community before his untimely death, does so, according to another list member.  I found this link in the archives.  I don't know if it works with the same commands and in the same manner as a previous post from another list member describes.

If so, it requires an add-on.  Is that add-on on the official site?  If so, I seem to have a vague recollection, now that you say that, that it isn't the regular Winamp add-on, but some sort of more general one that combines a number of enhancements for various programs and may not be on the official site.

Is there a way I could have is say with the dollar sign in front read two dollars and fifty cents with the decimal point in between the dollars and cents?
2. If I meet my deadline and I'll collect on time with the dollar sign in front NVDA is reading it as dollar 375.27.
Can I get NVDA to read this as dollars and cents as well?

Re: Say All in Google Docs

This isn't exactly the same as say all but its close.  Try pressing numpad plus and see what happens.  Numpad plus is the long key below the small key on the farthest right column of the numpad. 
 
I have no idea if it will work but who knows.

The Excel documentation indicates that there should be a list of tabs containing the worksheets available by typing F6 while focused on the cell grid. In current Excel (installed via Office 365), however, this didn't work for me: when I pressed F6, the focus remained on the cell grid. Pressing F6 a second time moved to the status bar.

This is one of those cases where "order of precedence" of processing of keystrokes is coming into play, combined with lack of announcement (at least for me, in Excel 2016) of focus having been shifted.

If I'm in a worksheet cell, and hit F6, focus does shift down to the worksheet tab, but that's not announced.  Without a screen reader on, you can then right/left arrow, to shift to the next/previous sheet and hit Enter to throw focus into that sheet, but with a screen reader on it captures the left and right arrow keys (and for what purpose at this moment I don't know, as they do nothing).  If you hit the NVDA pass through command, NVDA+F2, before left or right arrowing you will have focus on the tab for the next/previous worksheet, but you must hit enter to actually pull the worksheet itself into focus.  And I only get the announcement of the worksheet (it says table) name once I hit enter.  NVDA is silent while you're left/right arrowing (using pass through each time you need to do that lateral movement) so you need to have some idea of the workbook structure to begin with.

If I overshoot into the status bar where it starts talking about macros, I cannot simply SHIFT+F6 to get back to the worksheet navigation and have it work.  I must get back into a cell of the worksheet and hit F6 to start the "silent navigation" process of the worksheet tabs row, using pass through for each left/right arrow use.

Re: Bcc field is invisible in outlook 2016

 

From Outlook 2016 Help:

After you turn on the Bcc box, it appears every time you create a message until it's turned off. The option to turn on the Bcc field can be found in two locations, depending on whether you are composing a new message or replying to or forwarding a message.

  1. Create a new email message or reply to or forward an existing message.

  2. If the message you're composing opens in a new window, select Options > Bcc.

    To turn on Bcc box, open a new message, choose the Options tab, and in the Show Fields group, choose Bcc.

    If the message you're composing opens in the Reading Pane, select Bcc from the ribbon.

  3. In the Bcc box, add recipients, compose the message, and choose Send when done.


    The CC and BCC boxes have been persistent in my compose window since I originally set them to show.
