Re: NVDA works slowly in excel 2016

Martin O'Sullivan
 

Well did that and it has improved the performance  however   The issue of nvda reading behind the selection still persists.

 

But not Shure that this is an excel problem, as it does the same in Gmail, and other applications.

 

so, when you arrow down NVDA reads the line before the line which you are on.


but for anyone looking for how to do it here is a quick guide.

How to Disable Live Preview in Excel

 
The live preview in Excel shows how a feature affects the document as you hover over different choices. For example, when hovering over different types of charts, the selected data will demo different charts. To disable the Live Preview, please following the steps below:

press alt tap f then tap t

Uncheck "Enable Live Preview" in the options dialog box

It is really slow switching between sheets.

Martin,

 

I would also like to hear the answer to this from our resident NVDA experts.

 

In my own experience, when I run a macro to process an Excel worksheet, Excel slows down dramatically after each run of the macro so that I have to restart the computer to get back to a speedy process. I have read that this is a memory management problem with Excel which fails to flush out previously used memory and so runs out of accessible memory slots.

 

I raise this here, in case you are finding this sluggishness right away when you start NVDA or after working for a little while? In that case, I would recommend that you put on the NVDA log for a full working session so that the team can see just what the computer is doing and whether this is an Excel issue or due to NVDA programming.

You must use an OCR software for this.
It can be, for example, Finereader.

You can try.

It doesn't work for me.

It only does a small portion of the file.

How do I make OCR the whole file like jaws does?

Hi Supanut,

It has been requested a couple of times since Focus Highlight was added in 2019.3.  I've written up an issue for it just now: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/11405  Feel free to comment on the issue to add anything I've missed, or any other thoughts on the topic.

Kind regards

Hi,
Not sure if this has been suggested before but, I wonder whether it would be possible to add the ability to set a hotkey to turn on/off focus highlight in NVDA? Given that in the input gestures dialog the hotkey for screen curtain can be customized, I thought it would be nice if the hotkey for focus highlight can be customized as well.
