I was offering a suggestion because, as I recall, you didn't mention using review commands.  I don't use Word nor do I use Outlook but this was a suggestion in case you hadn't tried review in this context.

Gene,

 

Can you show me that the Spell Check is working with NVDA in your own situation?

 

Yes, I have experimented with browse mode and review, of course! None of these get the Spell check “not found” text. They show the headings  but not the content of what has not been found. If you run the Spell Check yourself, can you tell me that you do see the erroneous text?

 

 

All the best,

Subject: [nvda] NVDA not reading Spell Checker fields

 

Hello fellow list members,

 

I am using Office 2016 under Windows 10 with NVDA 2016.1.

 

Since I recently upgraded to Office 2016, I find that NVDA does not speak some of the essential fields in the Spell Checker. Particularly, the text that has not been found in the dictionary. The heading is there but I cannot see what text is being held. When I hit tab, NVDA speaks the suggested correction. Sometimes, I can guess which text is being amended but not always.

 

If I press F7 whilst editing the message, NVDA will track the spell check pointer and bring the focus to the erroneous word. If I press escape, interrupting the spell check, I usually find the focus point on the erroneous word. I have the Spell check set to activate automatically when I press send, just in case I have missed a typo as I normally do!. In this case, if I interrupt the Spell Check in order to see if I can see which word is causing the problem, I land at the beginning or end of the document but nowhere near the erroneous word.  So, I thought I would ask my helpful friends on the list if anyone can suggest anything that I can do about getting the spell check to speak the erroneous text while running?

 

Please help.

 

All the best,

Cearbhall

Re: NVDA not reading Spell Checker fields

Use the review cursor to read the previous text to get the misspelled word, and you can also read forward further down the pane to get the dictionary meaning of replacement words.

To read the context of the spelling error, the best option is to press escape to go back to the document, read the line / sentence / etc, and press F7 to go back to spell check again (or F6 to move back to the pane).

Here's the section of the User Guide on the review cursor: http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#ReviewingText

I'm almost finished writing the Word for NVDA course and included a topic on several methods for using the spell check, including activities.  The Word course isn't available yet although the basic training for NVDA course is which covers the review cursor etc - see: http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

Regards

Quentin.

Re: How to reach cookie warning banners in Windows 10

Gene
 

Are you saying that at times b works and at times k does?  If that is the case, it implies that this is shown at times as a button and at times as a link.  I don't know how you use review on web pages but if you use it for more than problems such as a link that you can't activate from the keyboard, for example, or an embedded object you can't activate from the keyboard, then you are likely using it too much. 
Using browse and ways to find things in browse mode such as find and quick navigation commands is usually much more efficient and I usually try such methods before trying review.  usually much more efficient.

Thanks for that, Gene. The dismiss button or link seems to have random wording, so Find may not suffice, but browse mode b and k seem to do the trick. Cheers.

Re: How to reach cookie warning banners in Windows 10

Then perhaps this is shown to European users and not to others.  In addition, if you are describing a real button, you should be able to find it with the command b.  Have you tried that?  When working with web sites, using review is usually not needed and there are usually other better ways to find things.  I suspect that, if this isn't a real button, you could find whatever word you are looking for more easily and quickly by using the NVDA find and searching for the word close.  There is no way for me to check what you are describing and try my suggestions but they may be useful.

I have figured this out - see below - but thought I should clarify things for those kind enough to stimulate my brain with suggestions. 

The reason for the banners appearing is an EU ruling that every website has to seek your approval for its use of cookies. There is some text, a link to view their cookie policy and a button or link which dismisses the banner and adds a cookie so it doesn't come up again.

F6 does not help, as the banner is typically an element of the web page - I want to remove it because it often obscures part of the web page's contents.

I am using Chrome on Windows 10, but it doesn't matter which browser is used.

Here is a link to a site for which I struggled to find the banner, to dismiss it, but I have finally figured out that using ctrl plus home or ctrl plus end will usually find the banner and I can then use Review to find the button or link which closes the banner. The link is to www.rightmove.co.uk

THE PAT PRICE ROOM: 8 PM EDT, MONDAY AUGUST 1, 2016       

 

Presentation: Meet Windows 10 Anniversary Update

·         Presenter: Joseph Lee

 

Description:

In mid-2015, technology writer Mary Jo Foley caused a stir when she announced Microsoft was thinking about the successor to Threshold, or initial version of Windows 10. This successor, codenamed Redstone, or as known by the name Windows 10 Anniversary Update or Version 1607, brings exciting features, such as enhanced Cortana, revamped Action Center, Windows Subsystem for Linux, reorganized Start menu, Settings and other apps, and new possibilities through Edge extensions and more. To screen reader users, the most notable change is vastly improved Narrator with features such as scan mode, developer mode, improved responsiveness and so forth.

Join Joseph Lee, a Windows Insider and a contributor to NVDA screen reader project, as he gives you a backstage tour of what’s new, changed, fixed and removed in Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Follow him along as he demonstrates running Bash on Windows, navigating the newly redesigned Start menu, demonstrates what’s new in Narrator and his impressions of using third-party screen readers with the latest Windows 10 upgrade. Along the way he will talk about his experience of running Windows 10 and being a Windows Insider, and what screen reader developers must do to make Windows 10 support a great one for users.

Re: NVDA and Outlook message status

Confirmed! I did I did forward a message and NVDA does not say forwarded. It does say replied. I switched to jaws 14 and it does say forwarded.

Hi everybody

I use Outlook 2010. My experience is that NVDA reads the number of mails and the unread ones, but not whether a mail was forwarded or not.

Hi!
Interesting that these indications before a message in Outlook, as described earlier in this thread, are not readable by NVDA in Outlook 2010 and later versions! I'm using Outlook 2007 here, and as I arrow down the message list I hear NVDA say "message unread", "message forwarded", "attachment yes", or whatever. As I have never used a version of Outlook later than 2007, I have no idea whether such indications have completely disappeared, or whether they have changed in later versions such as Outlook 2010 in some way so that NVDA doesn't detect them. I don't know whether this problem with later versions of Outlook can be solved, but I'm sure users of Outlook 2010 and later would be glad if it could.
Bye for now!
From Clare

I actually thought there is an icon in front of each message in the Inbox message list which indicates whether a message is unread, read, replied or forwarded and another showing that the message has an attachment. I assumed that Jaws and Window-Eyes interpreted these icons correctly and would then speak the appropriate status when you arrow up and down the message list, whereas NVDA does not interpret all correctly. NVDA indicates unread messages, but does not say that a message has been forwarded, neither, if memory serves, if a message has been replied to. In other words, I think this is probably an NVDA issue rather than an Outlook issue.

Kind regards

Christo

This is a peculiarity with Outlook (or at least Outlook 2010, which I think has been carried over). Virtually every e-mail client or web interface prefixes a forwarded message subject with either "Fwd:" or "FW:" and that gets read when going through the message list.

Outlook strips that from the message subject and I have yet to figure out how to make it stop doing that. I have just posted a question to answers.microsoft.com and hope to learn more about how this might be changed back to the more conventional behavior where the forward and reply indicator text is left in place on the subject display.

I haven't used Outlook on a regular basis in years and hadn't realized it did this until I fired up my copy of Outlook 2010 to take a look at what is happening.

Oh okay, How does one set up a gmail account on another device? I had a friend trying to set up my gmail to the I pad we share. it wouldn’t let her do it. could it be that she had her mail set up on it and it remembered  her? it would not allow her to put my gmail to it. it wanted to ask a security question. We did that and it still did not allow the I pad to be set up.  Has Gmail changed its site lately? I wrote down my password we put it in. and it still would not work. this is why I asked here.

Arlene,

            You can be logged in to your Gmail account from multiple devices in multiple locations at the same time.  There is no need to log out of any of them.  I am routinely logged in to my Gmail accounts, plural, via my laptop and smartphone and very often another desktop computer, too.  It is not necessary to log out on any one of those devices to log in on any others.
