Office 365 with NVDA

What are the advantages and disadvantages  of Office 365 with NVDA?  Will it find my account in office 2016?

You need to start re-enabling one add-on at a time, then check after the next log in whether it's working. When it fails, you'll know which add-on is causing it.

If you find one that causes it, disable that one again, and enable some other one, and see if it continues. Then you'll have a good idea where the problem is.

Also, get the Add-on Updater add-on if you don't have it already, to make sure all your add-ons are on the latest versions.

Thanks once more Joseph. I did just that. Result: with no add-ons enabled, everything’s perfect, no crash at all. With only a few add-ons enabled, the crash
happens but later in time, about two minutes after logon, and it’s independent of what I am doing. With all add-ons enabled, it happens right after logon,
just after NVDA starts for the first time and says “taskbar”. I suppose this is complicated, maybe I should learn to live with it, I’ve bothered you enough
already. Thousands of thanks indeed!

Hello all,

I am facing some issues with latest NVDA and Excel 2016.

If i open any drop down list and select any content from list, after that NVDA stops speaking after pressing down right left arrow or tab.

It becomes speakable again when i switch program using Alt plus tab and come back to excel.

Another issue sometime NVDA stops speaking in excel without above problem. Switching focus back to excel required

Thanks

Hi


Firstly indeed you can mute the NVDA speech manually, with the add-on you don't need to think about it.

If you interact with SpeakOn using the Standard keyboard NVDA might speak when SpeakOn has the focus depending on your general configuration of NVDA (key press echo etc).


A very attractive way to interact with SpeakOn is using the Numpad; only 11 keys are required and one can use the numpad from the main keyboard, a USB numpad and even a wireless one. SpeakOn uses the numbers and you don't want NVDA speaking when you operate the keys, indeed you can do this manually.


A third way You can interact with SpeakOn is using the touch screen on your laptop or tablet (if you are prepared to learn its gestures).

If you do that, you must use the add-on otherwise NVDA gets the input from the screen and the SpeakOn touch gestures don't work.

The alternative is to switch Off NVDA which is of course a pain.


I hope the purpose of the add-on is now clear.


Regards

Isaac

A new SpeakOn MediaSuite NVDA add-on is available for NVDA versions
2019.3.1 and later. This add-on does nothing by itself, you need to download and install SpeakOn Media suite for it to work.

More information to enable you to decide if it might be for you is provided towards the end of this message.


About a month ago there was an extensive discussion on this mailing
list about SpeakOn Media suite as part of podcast and books readers
related threads.

In addition to these, SpeakOn can handle Music, Radio and RNIB
Newspapers and Magazines in the UK.


The SpeakOn MediaSuite home page where you can find more information
including links to the download page and mailing list is at:

* SpeakOn supports English only.


* SpeakOn itself has not been updated for a while but with a minor
exception everything works and there are no known bugs.

Re: NVDA Systematic Crash

Gene
 

It may be better to just let NVDA crash, then start it again.  You said after the first crash, it works properly.  The crash won't hurt anything, it will just mean you have to run the program again. 
 
it sounds as though NVDA is trying to run before something in Windows has loaded that an add-on needs to load.  If you want to use all the add-ons you have, as I said, it may just be better to let NVDA crash.  If you are trying to solve the problem because you are worried about harm being caused, you don't have to worry.  Some problems are better left as they are.

Wow I’m truly grateful then.

 

One more thing I’ve noticed. If I uncheck the box “Automatically start NVDA after I log on to Windows” in Settings, and manually start NVDA a few seconds after restart, everything’s perfect. Which makes me want to ask this: is there any way to tell NVDA to start, let’s say, 10 seconds after startup? Would that help?

 

Cheers back,

The main benefit of the addon is that it automatically mutes and unmutes NVDA as you shift focus to and away from the self voicing aspects of Speak ON.

Subject: [nvda] New SpeakOn MediaSuite NVDA add-on for version
2019.3.1 and later

Hello all


A new SpeakOn MediaSuite NVDA add-on is available for NVDA versions
2019.3.1 and later. This add-on does nothing by itself, you need to download and install SpeakOn Media suite for it to work.

More information to enable you to decide if it might be for you is provided towards the end of this message.


About a month ago there was an extensive discussion on this mailing
list about SpeakOn Media suite as part of podcast and books readers
related threads.

In addition to these, SpeakOn can handle Music, Radio and RNIB
Newspapers and Magazines in the UK.


The SpeakOn MediaSuite home page where you can find more information
including links to the download page and mailing list is at:

http://www.speakon.org.uk/SpeakOn.html


The NVDA add-on is a convenience or a necessity depends how you
interact with SpeakOn; you can use a Standard keyboard, a numerical
keypad or a touch screen.

Information on the NVDA add-on and a link to download can be found at:

http://www.speakon.org.uk/SpeakOn/MediaSuite/public/docs/Tutorial/The_
basics/Operating_SpeakOn_alongside_your_screen_reader/Configuring_NVDA
.html


Please note the following based on recent questions:


* SpeakOn is self voicing.


* SpeakOn supports English only.


* SpeakOn itself has not been updated for a while but with a minor
exception everything works and there are no known bugs.


* Audio books:

It supports Daisy 2 as used in the UK and (I think) most of Europe, it
does not support Daisy 3 as used in the US.

Books made of individual audio files as well as playlists are also
supported


* Written books:

epub is supported as well as plain text.


* PDF is not supported


* DRM protection is not supported


Regards

Isaac

Simple answer. I don't have office on that computer. In fact I don't use office at all, have not since 2009. It is faster for me to either do it via command line, or via site which I have open all the time. That is by choice at least fo rnow.

Jabber with NVDA

Marquette, Ed
 

For those of you who do not know, Jabber is a very accessible (now) soft phone.  For the most part, it works great with NVDA as a telephone.  I, however, have trouble reading and responding to Jabber chat messages.  At one time, there was an NVDA add-in, but it didn’t help much with chat functionality, and now, I cannot find it on the NVDA add-in site.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: NVDA and Excel problem

 

I'd check on NVDA's GitHub Issue Page to see if this has already been reported and, if not, report it.  Tossing something like, "Excel 2016," or, "Excel 2016 dropdown," in the Filters edit box, after the already pre-populated "is:issue is:open," should find you any issues related to Excel 2016 in general or Excel 2016 and dropdown boxes in particular.  If the issue already exists, I'd add a comment to it stating exactly what you've said here.  If it doesn't, then opening a new issue as a bug report is the way to go.

NVDA and Excel problem

Ramesh Patil
 

Hello all,

I am facing some issues with latest NVDA and Excel 2016.

If i open any drop down list and select any content from list, after that NVDA stops speaking after pressing down right left arrow or tab.

It becomes speakable again when i switch program using Alt plus tab and come back to excel.

Another issue sometime NVDA stops speaking in excel without above problem. Switching focus back to excel required

Thanks
Ramesh patil

Oh, woops? I don't know if it is or is not I don't use grammarly, so I really can't tell you. I guess try it out? And if not, use what ever else people suggested. But if you need a word counter for school, that site will help you.

In Word itself, the only option I know of (which is accessible) is the inbuilt spelling and grammar checker.  If you're willing to copy your text out, ProWritingAid has an accessible interface here:  https://prowritingaid.com/en/Account/Register2?returnUrl=%2Fen%2FAnalysis%2FEditor%3FscreenReaderFriendly%3Dtrue

Note that it does have a Word plug-in, however last I checked, it, like others such as Grammarly, weren't accessible.

If anyone finds anything else, I'd be interested to know.

Kind regards

The main benefit of the addon is that it automatically mutes and unmutes NVDA as you shift focus to and away from the self voicing aspects of Speak ON.

Hi Group,

I am wondering just what added benefit using an add on for Speak On Media Suite would be. I don't use Speak On much any more--since I got my iPhone, but as I recall, Speak On is self voicing and speaks well in all the menus and at all levels. Did something change within that program within the past few months that necessitates an add on?

Subject: [nvda] New SpeakOn MediaSuite NVDA add-on for version
2019.3.1 and later

Hello all


A new SpeakOn MediaSuite NVDA add-on is available for NVDA versions
2019.3.1 and later. This add-on does nothing by itself, you need to download and install SpeakOn Media suite for it to work.

More information to enable you to decide if it might be for you is provided towards the end of this message.


About a month ago there was an extensive discussion on this mailing
list about SpeakOn Media suite as part of podcast and books readers
related threads.

In addition to these, SpeakOn can handle Music, Radio and RNIB
Newspapers and Magazines in the UK.


The SpeakOn MediaSuite home page where you can find more information
including links to the download page and mailing list is at:

http://www.speakon.org.uk/SpeakOn.html


The NVDA add-on is a convenience or a necessity depends how you
interact with SpeakOn; you can use a Standard keyboard, a numerical
keypad or a touch screen.

Information on the NVDA add-on and a link to download can be found at:

http://www.speakon.org.uk/SpeakOn/MediaSuite/public/docs/Tutorial/The_
basics/Operating_SpeakOn_alongside_your_screen_reader/Configuring_NVDA
.html


Please note the following based on recent questions:


* SpeakOn is self voicing.


* SpeakOn supports English only.


* SpeakOn itself has not been updated for a while but with a minor
exception everything works and there are no known bugs.


* Audio books:

It supports Daisy 2 as used in the UK and (I think) most of Europe, it
does not support Daisy 3 as used in the US.

Books made of individual audio files as well as playlists are also
supported


* Written books:

epub is supported as well as plain text.


* PDF is not supported


* DRM protection is not supported


Regards

Isaac

I see. Well, nothing to do then, I’m running out of ideas, will stop exploring for the time being. Assistance very much appreciated. This thing is a little bit annoying, but certainly not stopping me from using the computer.

 

Gratefully,
