Hello Ollie,

Mystic Access sells tutorials on the google suite " https://www.mysticaccess.com".

In the google suite, you need to enable screen reader support, and on the google suite access menu, you need to enable Braille support.
Look at " https://support.google.com/a/answer/1631886?hl=en".

Re: urgent help please with Outlook

Hi gang,


First things first, I hope everyone is doing well and keeping safe. This is going to be a fairly lengthy post, but I think it will help. 


Andrew: Is there only one version of office installed on your machine.  Sometimes this problem occurs if there are two concurrent installations running with one being active and the other though inactive is still installed. If this is the case, try uninstalling both, then re-installing your default version. 


If that doesn't solve things you may have to Change the permissions on the registry key. I would suggest that if you aren't comfortable with registry editing, make sure that you have assistance with running this step in case something goes wrong.


1. Open registry by typing regedit in run.
2. Search for the office productguid in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Components\
3. Right Click the Sub Key that starts with the following syntax:

'F1291BD604B8604......'
4. Select Permissions, Add 'Everyone' and give read only Access to that group.


I hope this helps.

Hi,

For table row/column, you need to turn off “Cell coordinates" Checkbox from NVDA’s document formatting list (NVDA menu/Preferences/Settings/document formatting/tables group; CAUTION: do not turn off cell coordinates while using Excel, as it will prevent NVDA from announcing which cell you are working on).

As for auto-complete in Outlook, it is already working, although it doesn’t work properly if one is using an older build of Office 365 or earlier version of Office.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: urgent help please with Outlook

Gene
 

It sounds as though you are getting the first message because of the second. Outlook can't fulfil the messaging requirement because it freezes. I don't use Outlook but that is mhy guess. I don't know why it is freezing. Is there a specific reason why you want to use Outlook? There are other very good alternatives.

To solve your Outlook problem may require the kind of help you might get from a Bleeping Computer forum. Logs may tell technically knowledgeable users why Outlook is crashing and they may be able to suggest solutions. As for something you might try, you might try uninstalling and reinstalling the program. You might try repairing it if there is a repair option. those with knowledge of the program may be able to discuss the matter further.

Re: Outlook and attachments

Gene
 

I read mail as plain text. In Windows Live Mail, I can open your message and see an embedded attachment with an htm extension. So although the list doesn't allow attachments in general, embedded attachments are allowed. If they weren't, a lot of messages people want to read as HTML would only be available as plain text.

My recollection, from the very little comparison I've done is that Thunderbird doesn't let you see such embedded attachments if you read mail as plain text and I don't know how many programs let you see them.

I’ve been getting the same attachment message for a few years.

On all occasions, it happens with messages on lists like this that do not allow attachments.

Once in a while I get a message with an attachment, but it is always from someone who is not on an email list.

Maybe it is caused by a signature or such.

No, I do not know what to do about it.

I did as on one list, but found no fix.

I live with it as a very minor annoyance.

Re: Outlook and attachments

Gene
 

I suspect it may in a way. If you receive an e-mail that you are reading as plain text, there is an embedded attachment of the message as an HTML document and maybe Outlook is showing these attachments in a way that your screen-reader announces them. I'm not sure if embedded attachments are sent with mail at other times but I doubt you can stop this behavior as it is probabhbly either a fault in Outlook or NVDA, I don't know which.
