Re: Outlook 2016 - Cannot Open Certain Messages When NVDA is Active

 

This message has been retitled so that the exact nature of the problem is front and center.   I have also quoted the problem description again, as it was buried after the log content posted.

Please refrain from posting logs on the group.  If an assistant needs one, they will ask for it to be sent directly to them.

Would it help if I uninstall, and then re-install NVDA?

Two problems with NVDA 2020.2

Gloomy_Apple
 

Hello all!

   I have just finally moved on from the NVDA 2019.2 version and updated to the newest one. However now I'm having two problems with it. I'm pretty sure that the first one has been already mentioned in the group though in regard to a different version, but can't find the topic for the life of me so apologies if this is repetitive.

   1: I have the "Speak Typed Characters" option on most of the time, and now after the update, when I'm on the desktop and navigating to a specific icon by its first letter, NVDA will only say the letter but not the name of the icon afterwards. I've heard that this was a problem in the 2019.3 version with older speech synths however I'm using Acapela (for Sapi5, not for NVDA) so was quite surprised to see this problem. I turned the Speak Typed Characters option off for now but if this is something I can fix myself, I'd really appreciate any advice.

   2: When using the NVDA+Down Arrow to read continuously, NVDA will stop after a while. I assume that it stops when reaching the end of a paragraph, or before a heading.

   Are these just some bugs in this version that will be removed later or is it something that I can get back to working properly as someone who's not extremely techy? Do you guys have any suggestions how to deal with this.

   Best wishes.


ALLOW APP THROUGH CONTROLLED FOLDER ACCESS DOESN'T READ

Dear List

 

My husband and I both have laptops with Windows 10 2004 and NVDA 2020-2.

 

Since we updated Windows, NVDA doesn't read the list of blocked apps in Controlled Folder Access.

 

Does anyone know what to do about this, please?

 

Kind regards

Hello.

The solution is the add-on Lion.

First, go to the video. Maximise the Window and press f11 for the complete screen. So, press NVDA+alt+L with the addon Lion installed and go to read the subtitles, but the add-on no repeat sentences.

Regards.

NVDA 2020.2 Released

By NV Access

NV Access is pleased to announce that version 2020.2 of NVDA, the free screen reader for Microsoft Windows, is now available for download. We encourage all users to upgrade to this version.

Highlights of this release include support for a new braille display from Nattiq, better support for ESET antivirus GUI and Windows Terminal, performance improvements in 1Password, and with Windows OneCore synthesizer. Plus many other important bug fixes and improvements.

Please note, after updating any software, it is a good idea to restart the computer. Restart by going to the Shutdown dialog, selecting “restart” and pressing ENTER. Updating software can change files which are in use. This can lead to instability and strange behaviour which is resolved by rebooting. This is the first thing to try if you do notice anything odd after updating.

While downloading NVDA, please consider becoming a monthly donor. Contributions like yours help NV Access continue our important work.

We also have a range of training material in the NV Access Shop to help you increase your skills with NVDA. Start with the popular Basic Training for NVDA in electronic text, audio and braille. Save with the NVDA Productivity Bundle. This includes Basic Training, all our Microsoft Office training, and telephone support.

Maybe. I really don't know. I noticed this on a system running 32 gigs or ram and my shadow that runs 12.. A restart fixed it, but it is still annoying as this might happen at system boot up, or mid what ever I'm doing on either machine.

I deal with it as a minor thing, goes away with restarting NVDA.
BTW its not just a new NVDA version issue, Its was occurring for years
here now specially since win10 came up NVDA key would stop functioning
every now and then. I thought it was happening because I change usage
between FS JAWS and NVDA so often in one session.
I might been wrong though.

Which is really, really shocking if it's true.  Basic web coding conventions have been in place for a very, very long time now.  Screen readers generally have little to no problem working with web-based interfaces that are not using novel controls (and novel controls are constantly being invented, but most sites have a smattering of these, if any).

Links, buttons, dropdowns, edit boxes, combo boxes, and the list goes on are not new and should be able to be accessed "straight out of the box" on any web interface.  If they can't be, then someone has done something royally screwy to make that so.

Hi all

Sorry I only react now but that is because of a family crisis.

Thanks for all the very helpful suggestions, I didn't know them myself before you told me they exist.

Unfortunately it seems as though this website doesn't accept any of them. I can't share the url as it is the company's cloud program. They were told by the programmers that they need to rewrite the complete website to make the necessary accessibility changes. I'm not a programmer but is it not possible to add some code to the existing software to accomplish the use of keyboard input?

You're a great source of information, thanks again.

Can any of these "certain websites" be shared?  It's far better to have an example to work with whenever possible.
