Issue with focus mode in some controls NVDA 2020.2 beta

Bruno Aníbal Prieto González
 

Hello!
I'm having the next issue with the latest NVDA beta. In some edit
fields, pressing left or right arrows at the beginning or end of the
box, NVDA moves to other controls. This happens to me in Microsoft
Teams for example, or in Microsoft Sway. With NVDA 2020.1 it doesn't
happen. Does something like this happen to anyone?

It also happens sometimes that when you move through UWP or Win32
controls, for example when you reach the music tree in iTunes, it
doesn't read, music tree, but it reads directly the name of the song.
In the Windows 10 mail application, sometimes it does not read that it
is a list where the senders of a mail appear, but it reads the mail
directly. Sometimes it reads it, sometimes it doesn't. In Microsoft
Edge, when passing through tabs, sometimes it doesn't read the name of
the tab, but it reads directly a control of that page, like a link.
These things didn't happen in NVDA 2020.1.

I'd like to know if anyone else has these issues or could try to
replay them so I can be more confident that it's not just my problem
and report it.

Regards

Hi,
To answer the second question, yes 2017.3 works with Windows 10. Note that as far as the add-on is concerned, WinTenApps does not support 2017.3
To answer Peter's question (and to expand on Brian's answer): Windows 10 App Essentials is an add-on that improves accessibility and usability of controls found in Windows 10, along with improving usability of some built-in apps such as Calculator, Microsoft Store and others. The add-on sometimes serves as an extended beta testing facility where features under consideration for inclusion in NVDA are tested in public e.g. support for announcing hardware keyboard input suggestions was first made available on the add-on, then included in NVDA in late 2018.
Cheers,
Joseph

blank lines add on.

Hello. Does anyone know if there is an addon where you can turn off the feature where if NVDA says blank if there is a blank line or a carriage return it says blank and would like to turn it off cause when am reading emails I come to a lot of blank lines or returns in an email and keep on hearing: blank, blank and it kind of drives me crazy so would like if it all possible to turn off this feature with in the add on if the add on is in the works maybe it might work with nvda 2010.1 onward. Thank you.

To tell what version of windows you have, hit the windows logo key and type "winver" in the search box without the quotes and hit enter. You should hear the version of windows you're on.

Yep.  And if you do end up picking and choosing some of them, but not

Hi Brian

I searched for nvda add-ons for LibreOffice but found none.

It seems a good alternative for MS-Office. Will comment as I go along.

My first observation is that loading files take a little longer especially if it need to be converted form a Word file. High time I calm down and accept when working stuff takes a second or more longer than I'm used to, 😊!

thank you for the message.

I thought, that Nvda addon Notepad plus plus is for a texteditor named Notepad plus plus.

Hello,

There is a separate application called notepad++ which has additional functionality and is frequently updated. Some of its features include support for various line endings, various multi-lingual encoding and highlighting for various programming languages. This add-on is designed for this program.
