Hi guys!
 
Got a question.  I like Skype but, lately, I’ve been getting a considerable number of dropped calls and fuzzy connections.  We’ve had quite a bit of stormy weather lately but, even on a good day, drops and bad connections happen more than they used to.  I was checking on alternatives to Skype and found Oovoo.  It sounds promising but how well does it work with NVDA?  Has anybody ever created an Addon for it?  I did see an audio boom entry from a blind woman who uses it on her Iphone but I wanna do it on my pc and my Galaxy S6.  Oh yes, I also heard Oovoo’s sound quality is superior to skype.  Hmm.  Anyway, I’d appreciate any tips, including more stable preferably free alternatives to skype, anybody can give me.  Thanks so much.

Re: NVDA not reading Spell Checker fields

When I press f7, the spell check pane ("Proofing toolbar") opens and the focus jumps to the "ignore" button.  To read the misspelled word I can press NVDA+num pad 4.

After the "Add" button, the focus moves to the first of the alternative words (if any).  The next two items are "Change" and "Change all" and press NVDA+num pad 6 past that change button, the review cursor moves to a text label with the currently chosen alternative word, followed by a button to have it spoken, then a dictionary explanation of the word.

Note if you are using laptop layout, replace:

NVDA+num pad 4 with NVDA+shift+left arrow
and
NVDA+num pad 6 with NVDA+shift+right arrow

I'm using Word 2016 (Office 365) and NVDA 2016.2.1

Kind regards

Quentin.

If I heard you right, you are saying that object nav doesn’t work, and that when you press F7 from Word 2016, NvDA does not announce misspelled word and so on? If the latter, then this is a known problem, and it’ll be quite tricky to fix.

Are you using object navigation or flat review?  I think it's called screen review in newer versions of NVDA.  Use object navigation.  Move using numpad insert 4 to go baqck and nunmpad insert 6 to go forward. 

 

there are times when object navigation sees things that screen review won't.  This appears likely to be one such time.

Quentin,

 

The keystroke NVDA+b is the only tool that gives me the erroneous field.

 

It starts at the top of the dialog and, when it comes to “Not found in dictionary” if repeats this twice followed by “alt plus” and then repeats “not found in dictionary” once more followed by the erroneous text and then continues on to read to the bottom of the dialog.

 

This is the only time when the erroneous word is spoken. It is not available when I use the numpad to review the text even though NVDA+b has spoken it. Yet, the offered correction is available in all modes of review.

 

Any ideas?

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/

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.

Hi, why not test both of them. Not at the same time. But You may have to talk to yourself using both one at a time. If one of them sounds good. Go for what you feel sounds good.

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,

Re: NVDA not reading Spell Checker fields

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Quentin,

 

The keystroke NVDA+b is the only tool that gives me the erroneous field.

 

It starts at the top of the dialog and, when it comes to “Not found in dictionary” if repeats this twice followed by “alt plus” and then repeats “not found in dictionary” once more followed by the erroneous text and then continues on to read to the bottom of the dialog.

 

This is the only time when the erroneous word is spoken. It is not available when I use the numpad to review the text even though NVDA+b has spoken it. Yet, the offered correction is available in all modes of review.

 

Any ideas?

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Re: NVDA not reading Spell Checker fields

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Quentin,

 

Thanks for the Response!

 

I cannot get the review cursor to read the whole dialog of the spell Check. The Object review latches on to the object in focus within the dialog and reports only that line  which is in focus. For instance, at the top of the dialog, the review includes the heading and the line “Spelling and Grammar: English (United States) Not in Dictionary:” but no sign of the actually erroneous word. There si also no explanation of the the offered solution anywhere in the dialog.

 

I wonder if you would be available to facetime me at the +353 8333 23487 so that we can go through this and you can see the results. I am available now if you wish.

 

 

All the best,

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.

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?

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

All the best,
