Reading column and row headers in MS Excel

Mohd. Ahtesham Shaikh
 

Hi friends,
I have a file where I am not able to make NVDA read the column headers.
I think that I have assigned column heading to more than 1 header cell.
Is there any way I can disable all column and row heading command and then re-assign fresh headers and columns.
NVDA does not read column headers if there are more than 2headers defined by mistake.
Please seek clarity if the problem is not understood.

Re: NVDA 2019.2 Beta 3, arrow keys do not work in Skype 8.49 under Windows 10 Ver. 1809.

Hi!
The solution, as has been pointed out repeatedly, is to drop XP and
arrive in the 21st century. It's a great century to live in. I'm sure
you'll enjoy it.
Best,
Felix

Hey all. I think the subject about covers it. If I open Skype, this is
the
desktop version or whatever they're calling it, under NVDA 2019.2 Beta 3,
and try to arrow around, nothing happens. It works fine under NVDA
2019.1.1.
What should happen is that it moves and reads a line, e.g. "menu button
submenu more options", "search for people groups and messages", "use dial
pad", and so on, that's arrowing down from the top.
Tabbing between things works, but not the arrows, at least for me. I
figured
I'd mention it in case anybody knows of a fix, or at least to find out if
it's a known issue, and if not, to make people aware of it.

Re: Using tdropbox on W10?

Evidently by felt like, you mean you believed or believe there is one called local.  But what do you want to do?  Do you want to change sync from the default?  If you aren't sure what may happen, with Drop Box not running, when you are at, not in, the Dropbox folder, copy the folder to the clipboard and paste it somewhere else as a backup.  Then experiment.  Or if you let us know exactly what you want to do, use the sync you have been using in the past or change something, you might get answers for the specific thing you want to do.

It is not clear that the Dropbox add-on would help you with this, although since
there is one, you might want to try it just in case.

I thought that most of the button accessibility problems for Dropbox were
resolved by Dropbox themselves in more recent versions, but maybe they've
introduced a new one. Hard to say, as I have not seen the situation you're
talking about.

Hello,
A quick note that if you use the advanced button, you can then check or
uncheck smart sync. It is a little interesting that that is so hidden to
begin with.

Re: Using tdropbox on W10?

Arlene
 

, I don’t know if this will help. Here goes. 

Howdy All,

 

I just ran into an issue with Dropbox where it wouldn't let me acces my files.  Well, it turned out that it wanted to update and after downloading the

installer and reinstalling Dropbox navigating the folders flat out sucked, so here's how to change the necessary setting for easier navigation.

 

1. Open Dropbox from the system tray, tab to, Access and Manage your Dropbox settings button, and press enter.

 

2. Now tab to, Preferences, and press enter.

 

3. On the General tab, tab to the, Open folders in Dropbox combobox, open this combobox and choose the, Explorer, option.  With Jaws you can open this

combobox with Alt + down arrow and then up arrow to the Explorer option and press enter to close the combobox.  Now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save

and close preferences.

Note:  This can act a little tricky so it might take a couple of attempts to get the Explorer settings change to stick.

If you have a shortcut key that opens Dropbox options, after you openDropbox up arrow to, Preferences, press enter and follow step 3 from above.

Take care.

Re: Brltty, anything new

David Csercsics
 

I don't know about BRLTTY for NVDA or narrator, because I've only ever used it on Linux. Hower, I do know that you can use the braille extender add-on to read .brf files. I just open them in wordpad or notepad and put it in .brf mode and that works beautifully. You don't even need to twiddle your braille settings in NVDA to do this. It's just a quick toggle while you're in the .brf file. Maybe the braille extender add-on will help you. I'm not sure what braille display you have, but I might be able to help with BRLTTY. I've just never used it under Windows because the Brailliant BI 40 works great with NVDA and HumanWare's drivers.

This is a shame as stascom is a good utility but I have now had to uninstall it to regain unproblematic access to GoldWave on my laptop as well. As soon as I uninstalled stascom I stopped getting memory exceptions in GoldWave.
