Cannot Get Latest NVDA To Install On Windows 10 Anniversary

James Robinson
 

Hello List!
 
Each time I try to install NVDA, the process aborts by telling me that “NVDA Failed to install.”  NVDA seems to be active and it talks but I cannot close it and have to reboot my system to get rid of it.  Is there something I must do to my system before installing the program?  Could someone give me the download link to the latest version of the program so I can be sure I am installing the correct program.   

Sincerely,


James Arthur Robinson, Sr., President
Jardata Corporation

Hi I am planning on doing a what’s new in Nvda 2016.3 tutorial, and I was wondering if it would be a good idea to do a text version of the tutorial along with the audio version.

Perhaps you hit the mute button by accident. You may have to get a sighted
person to look and see if the computer does as it should without sound. I
mean have the person move about on your desktop to see if it does as it
should. If it does you hit the mute button.

Good Morning

I am a new subscriber to this group and a relatively in experienced NVDA

somewhere along the way I rather quickly did something that appaarently

My challenged is that it's a Windows 10 computer and I'm not yet familiar

Reading rows and columns in Word table

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Hello all,

I am using Word 2016 in windows 10 and NVDA 2016.3

I wonder if you can help me with this task? I am attaching a sample of a
Word 2016 table that contains varying row lengths. This is a doctored copy
of an audit report table that is shaped like this for visual effect. I found
it difficult to understand until a sighted person explained what each row
was meant to convey.
I have placed a sample portion of the table in a dropbox folder. Here is the
link:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/jd3umb62iimo5su/sample%20table.docx?dl=0

Row 2 has data only in cell 1 and the NVDA cursor slips back up to row 1
because columns 3 and 4 have null data in them in row 2.

Next, the last four rows are similarly shortened and NVDA slips back up one
or two rows when it meets the non-existent cells in columns 4 and 5.

The "Alt GR" key to the right of the space bar does nothing in Word 2016 as
a table control moderator key. For this reason, I am navigating the table
using the left control and alt keys with the right arrow key to move right
along the rows and control + alt with the up and down arrows to move up and
down the table rows.

Are there other keystrokes that I could use in NVDA that would recognise the
end of row 2 and 16 rather than spill over onto the upper lines? I hate to
mention the opposition, but JAWS 17 does stop on the row even it is one or
two cells shorter than that above!

I should mention that columns 1 and 2 are merged in the last four rows but
neither screen reader recognises that fact and so calls the third column
"column 2" and the fourth one "column 3" etc. Is there a setting in NVDA
that can detect the merged columns?


All the best,

Cearbhall

Hi.
If I understood good, you've installed NVDA but the voice is silent. I think
you could try with NVDA+S but is not so probably it would Works good.
Probably the computer volumen could be silent. If you can, aks people who
can look in your screen or use an external soundcard and put up the volumen
and put off the sound.
Cheers

If you use the command numpad insert numpad times, which I think is numpad asterisk, the object navigator will move to the position of the mouse pointer.  You can then spell the entire item by pressing numpad 8 twice quickly or spell the current word by pressing numpad 5 twice quickly.
The numpad commands for read current letter, move forward and read the next letter and move back and read the previous letter are:
numpad 2, numpad 3, and numpad 1.
 
I don't know how well reading is done if you read as you do.  Reading is not intended to be done in this way.  You might get much more efficient and pleasant reading if you use the intended method, the read to end command in a document or web page.  Do you know the command and have you used it?

It may be that I'm just misunderstanding what you want, but is this not already available with the flat review commands?

Not sure exactly how this is handled if you're using the mouse to get NVDA's placement to use the flat review commands to read character by character, but I'd be curious if one of the follow cursor settings would allow it to keep track of the mouse's position and then let you review that position with the flat review commands.

Just a thought.

A small intro about the user (me)

 

Been using NVDA since one year aprox, i am technically blind but have low visión 1/10 so I mainly use the “mosue over” function to read, but sometimes navigate using tab or keys too.

 

The situation that gives me a small problema is this, for example I am moving the mouse over some text it could be a web page or window file and since I use french, spanish and english sometimes i am not sure of what exactly said, for example a file name “francois Valluard.doc” or web page that talks aobut an autor and i want to know the exact spelling so i can find more info or whatever i need.

To solve this normally I try to use nvda+* to move the cursor to the place or copy the text and paste it into a notepad and use the cursor to read the wors and letter by letter.

 

My suggestion to solve this problema would be:

 

I acall “output buffer” to the text that is stored and read when you do some action, for example you move the mouse over some text you leave the mouse there and NVDA starts Reading this buffer, you can pause it with shift or clear this buffer with ctrl.

If would be very very desirable if you can have more control of this outbuffer, handle it with a cursor so you can read Word by Word and spelling.

 

Another example would be, you are in the file system, Windows explorer, you move the mouse up adn down, and nvda send info to this output buffer and read “ABC.doc”, i would like to get the spelling of this file, if I had control of this output like I said it would be easier.

 

 

Let me know if i been not clear.

 

Thanks, regards,

Martin

Its set to zero at the moment as i'm hoping this may show something up but it does not. i have just hopefully changed to 7basic scheme as I'm told this does not use Aero, which is pointless if you can't see in any case.
I have the same issue on two different machines now.
I'm using Next snaps, but that seems to not be the issue either.
it happened the last time as I created a folder with shift/control n and typed in the name, I saw enter appear thereafter lots of weaerror and other error reporting filnames appear in the nvda log then a huge list of core frozen in stack watchdog errors. No error sound though.

Has anyone got a tool to scan to a Word doc?

Brian Crabtree <pandbcrabtree@...>
 

I scanned a letter into a JPG file and used the OCR add-on, which gave hopeless results.

I then added a section of the image to a Word doc and ran OCR from within Libre Office, with amazing results.

My Epson DX4400 all-in-one printer is old and has a hopeless scanning utility, which will output only to a JPG image, making the process laborious in the extreme.

Has anyone a good suggestion for replacing my Epson scan utility with a free alternative, which will allow output to go directly to a Word document? Or alternatively a better idea altogether, which does not involve spending lots of cash.

I am on Windows 10 but have only an old version of Word and use Libre Office for reading docs. Brian Crabtree

My first question is. Is this an nvda issue or just Windows being

I have noted on various sites that Explorer can crash if multiple
folders and software is all open at the same time, particularly if one
of the Aero schemes are selected for the display.
However, it would be nice if somehow nvda could actually alert one to
this sort of crash, which by pressing keys in a manic fashion I seemed
to manage to get out of but quite how is a bit of a mystery.
I do have a very long log of this, but I'll only post it or a link to
it if anyone is interested. I'm merely asking if the advice to use
windows 7 basic scheme will fix it and whether its best to close
folders which are open but no longer needed. I tend to set up all
mchines to not open the folders in the same window as it makes it
easier to cut and paste files that way.

Hello Brian.


I'd recommend pressing control alt N when that happens.


I'd recommend making a ticket request if possible and mentioning that
you have a log.

I suppose what I'm really getting at here, and though its not I'm sure intended this way, is that on quite a number of web sites with free versions, you tend to find yourself pushed toward the paid version or some other software to try or similar sharp practice.
In this case it only needs one extra line to describe how the page works, so how come its still the same as it was last time when this same issue came up for new users who were anxious to try the new version. Interestingly the snapshot page has no such issues, and I'd imagine downloading the RC version on that page is actually downloading a more up to date one than the one on the actual link mentioned.

I do feel finding the actual download on this page and trying to provide
just an email address without doing the donation is a little bit awkward.
Even I find it so. I personally think this page needs a rethink, at least to
download the release candidate. What do others think?

NVDA and Google Tables

 

Hello all,

I wanted to work on a translation of an app for Android. The strings are in a file hosted in Google Tables. So, it is something like XLS files for Excel. I tried to figure out how to work with Google Tables, but I couldn't I was using Mozilla Firefox 48 for the purpose and the latest NVDA "next" snapshot. Does NVDA support Google Tables at all? If YES, can you give me some hints as of how to work in Google Tables with NVDA?

Thanks much in advance!

Best wishes,
Kostadin Kolev
