NVDA sounds

Janet Brandly
 

Hi,

 

Is it possible to set NVDA to make a sound when a new program or web page has started or loaded?

 

Thanks,

 

Janet


Re: Microsoft OneNote

Speaking of One Note, I’m looking for an app that’d allow me to write up the draft here on my computer; when I’m done with it, transfer it to my iPhone for continuing to work on the Go, or for any further actions in which iOS suits better. Would this solution of installing it on my Windows10 Laptop work then? Where would one get it from, and is it free?

I have used one note and it's ok, they suggest hitting f6 to get between pains. I submitted feedback a while ago, and that's as far as it went.

Hey Sarah.

 

May I ask the nature of the feedback that was submitted? My friend 9sighted) and I were just talking about that as he uses the feedback thing quite a lot.

Lol at “pain”…yeah, they can be that. 8grins*

I can’t quite picture yet how he wants to organise all this.

Thanks for the tip about the NVDA+Alt+arrows! I didn’t realize this command was available! Much easier to navigate indeed!

Latest version works as it should. I even featured it on a Spanish-speaking podcast I’m preparing to upload to the “ActualidadAccesible” site found at

http://actualidadaccesible.com if you guys know enough Spanish to give it a look. I posted two previous articles and podcasts about the NVDA screen reader already;this will be the 3rd in a series.

Re: blank lines add on.

 

I read the original request as Gene did.  I thought it might be possible to control this either with punctuation level or possibly by adding a regular expression match for a blank line in the default dictionary, making its substitution be nothing at all, but neither of those methods seem to work.

If any other regex geeks are reading this, the expression I used to match a blank line is:  ^\s*$
I still have "blank" being announced when I am down or up arrowing line by line through text.

Use of NVDA with Microsoft power BI

Ahmad Ismat
 

Hi,

Just wondering has anyone used NVDA with Microsoft power BI ?

If so can anyone share their experience using it...is it accessible with NVDA ?

Thank you in advance.

Best Wishes,
Ahmad


Re: An NVDA-compatible Markdown editor?

 

There's none that is kept up to date, so the best thing is to use Microsoft word with the Writage add on.


Re: blank lines add on.

Gene
 

I have no objection to an add-on or feature in NVDA that would skip blank lines when you up or down arrow reading the next line of text. I don't recall seeing that asked for in the past and as I understood the question yesterday, it was how to avoid blank lines when down arrowing through a message, appearing that the person was reading line by line.

When reading documents in a word processor or mail as HTML, it is my understanding that control down arrow or control up arrow will read by paragraph, skipping blank lines in documents. I haven't used that feature enough to discuss it further, others may have.

Because it does not solve the problem totally. For example: what if I want to read the previous paragraph, but there is a lot of blank lines between the current and the previous paragraph?
An add-on like this would help me a lot.

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

When you open Add-Ons Manager there is a Get Add-Ons button at the bottom.  You can also download NVDA add-ons from the NVDA Community Add-Ons Page or from private developers, then double click on the file when NVDA is running, and you'll be asked if you want to install the add-on.

As Joseph has already noted there are no NVDA add-ons for Libre Office (or at least there aren't on the community add-ons page, who knows if anyone noodling around with NVDA and Libre Office might have created an add-on, but chances are slim).
