Re: Reading column and row headers in MS Excel

Ralf Kefferpuetz
 

Hello,

 

You have to disable them one by one.

If you’re going to re-enable them just go to the first cell of the row with the column-headers and press shift-nvda-c once. The complete row will now be treated as a column header.

 

Cheers,

  Ralf

Subject: [nvda] Reading column and row headers in MS Excel

 

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.

Ralf Kefferpuetz
 

There is no such program to my knowledge because Skype removed this public API years ago.

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: dropbox

Vincent Le Goff <vincent.legoff.srs@...>
 

Thanks for reporting.  I was rather desperate when I found out I couldn't open my Dropbox folder that easily.  The dropbox window isn't that accessible IMO with NVDA, no matter the installed addons.


I reported the issue to Dropbox directly.  Although no answer was sent at this date (that is 10 hours later or so), I find my Dropbox opening normally this morning (though I followed your set of steps).  Again, the preference dialog isn't that accessible with NVDA, though we can manage this modification since it's in the general tab.  I reported my "partial success" to the Dropbox team, asking if possibly accessibility with NVDA and other screen readers could be more tested before features are released.  I do hope for a positive feedback.


Thanks again,


Vincent

Hi friends:  If your dropbox suddenly looks weird. Here’s how to fix it if you need to

_________________________________________________________________



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: 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.

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

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

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?

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.

Hi, I'm using the latest version of NVDA, and no dropbox addon.

 

When I signed in to my db account on my pc, I got the online recommended

option button for syncing.

 

I didn't see another button, but i felt like there was one called local.

 

I have all my dropbox folder on another drive, there's 123 gigs of stuff

in there, and I didn't want it moving my local files from the drive,

then trying to redownload them again.

Hi,
Unless I'm mistaken, Skype 8.49 does not support XP.
Cheers,

Re: Brltty, anything new

 

Not sure, but the brltty narator uses is probably the same version everyone else uses.

I used NVDA with brltty on Windows 7, but when I switched to Windows 10, I didn't want to install Brltty because there was already a version that got installed when you enabled Braille with narrator. 
Does anyone know if there's a way to just get NVDA to use that Brltty? Do you think I'll mess something up if I do install another BRLTTY for NVDA and where's the latest version compiled for Windows 10?
And lastly, has anyone had success reading BRF files (already translated embosser-ready files) using NVDA with Braille? The last time I tried, it seemed like NVDA or maybe Brltty was inserting a lot of extra clutter even if I set my preferences to not use any contracted Braille.
