Spelling corrections not displayed when composing a message in Microsoft teams for windows

Luke Robinett <blindgroupsluke@...>
 

Hi folks,

When I am typing a message in Microsoft teams, NVDA announces misspelled words, as expected, but when I hit the right windows key to get the Context menu, I don’t get any spelling suggestions like I would in other Microsoft apps. I will say I attempted this same thing with narrator and encountered the same problem, so it might be an issue with Teams. Just thought I’d see if anyone else has experienced this and if there are any workarounds. Thanks.


Re: How has NVDA benefitted you during the pandemic

I’ve said before how NVDA. Is the best screen reader I know.  During this pandemic I can go to tech classes using it.  I’m learning how to use Zoom and Teams.  Sometimes I run into glitches, but I don’t think this is due to NVDA.  I’m trying to learn how to get around those glitches so I can use these programs more smoothly.  The 1 core voices are fantastic.  Some people perefer eloquence, but I get retired of its inflection.

NVDA benefits me even when there is not a pandemic more than I know how to express in words. during the pandemic, however, it has worked well with Zoom since I have been attending many Zoom meetings. I do not know how to thank those who give many hours of their time to keep on working on NVDA to make it the best that it can be.

 

Thank you so very much.

Re: Accessible windows camera/video editing apps do they exist?

Stan Bobbitt
 

There’s a video editor in Windows 10. Hit the windows key and type video editor. It’s fairly accessible with NVDA. I believe it’s part of the Photos app in Windows.

HTH,

Hi. I remember having decent luck with windows movie maker many years ago but my understanding is that is no longer included in windows. I certainly don’t see it in windows 10. There’s a store app with that name but I think it’s a third-party program. Can you clarify which program you are referring to?

Re: How has NVDA benefitted you during the pandemic

Devin Prater
 

First, if I didn't have NVDA, I'd be spending my hard-earned money on JAWS, which, in these turbulent times, not everyone has money for. Second, its powerful addons, like Braille Extender and the Lion automatic OCR addon make life easier and more fun. Braille Extender brings all keyboard keys to braille, making me much more productive with braille, and much more able to learn Python through it. Also, the open source nature of these addons, and most being hosted on Github, allows me to communicate directly with the developers through issues. I got a problem fixed through Braille Extender with the Focus display through that openness. JAWS doesn't encourage that kind of collaboration. Lion allows me to play video games more easily, the ones that can be played better with OCR, by allowing me to sit back with my game controller, while Lion reads the screen. Of course, I have to turn it off when getting to action parts rather than pure menus, but I really like just being able to sit back and relax while playing a game.

Also, NVDA's easy settings screen is so much quicker than JAWS' tree view of endless levels of settings. It's so easy to press Alt + NVDA + D, then Alt + I, to get to indentation settings when I get ready to learn to code. It just takes a lot of stress out of using a computer, and really, that's what all programs, and operating systems, should do. When I sit down at the computer, I come for a particular purpose, or reason, or group of objectives. I don't want to fight with the computer, or be limited by inaccessibility of overdesign, but I do want the computer to actually help me out with stuff. And NVDA is easy, lite, and configurable to my needs. And if the base package doesn't have that, there are addons that probably do. And in this age of stress and fear, we need this kind of freeing technology that just gets out of your way and lets you work, but also has so many helpful settings, like playing a sound for indentation, and so many addons that add great functionality to it.

Hi Luke,

I am talking about the same Windows Movie Maker application that initially came preinstalled with Windows earlier versions.
That same app is accessible but the app has to be downloaded from a third party website.

Re: Masked URLs in E-mail messages

Quentin Christensen
 

I've added a comment on this issue: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/11212 - the issue was originally requesting a feature such as in Narrator where you can press a keystroke to have a URL sent to an online service and the title retrieved - I'd prefer simply reading the underlying URL.  Personally, the context of the link should already give you the WHY you might follow it that you might get from the title, what I really want to know exactly WHERE it will take me.

Re: NVDA and security info

Quentin Christensen
 

In terms of security, we do often get asked this (it's something a lot of IT managers look into for any software they install).  We've tried to put up answers to most of the common questions we get asked on our corporate / government page at https://www.nvaccess.org/corporate-government/

Basically, the only internet access NVDA uses is to check for updates, and provide some non-personal information (eg Windows version, NVDA version) - both of which are optional.  You can disable those features or even deny NVDA access to the Internet completely and it will work just fine without any issues.  The NVDA binary, the file you download, is also digitally signed by NV Access so you can confirm it is unaltered.

If a company is particularly concerned about features, NVDA has a secure mode which disables some features such as logging and so on.

If they still have any questions, they are most welcome to contact us at info@....

Kind regards

Quentin.

Well, as far as I understand, if their it allows you to securely login to their system, all they need is install your display drivers, nvda and addons you need on the system and thats it in admin mode.

If your laptop, they may just give you remote access but you will still need nvda installed on that system.

That is assuming they don't then say nvda is not secure because it is opensource and then ask you to jaws.

Such, organazations, companies, and such?

 

I read that the answer is yes, but I would like a clear answer here.

 

One of the companies ask me to go to them again, with my braille display and laptop, so they can check if NVDA is secure, and how I will work, with my laptop or on there.

 

 

Thanks for any answer.

Paragraph is a technical term within NVDA. Most likely your link is a paragraph. So just put the full text of your link in BrowserNav settings in browser marks field. Then you'd be able to jump there directly with J and Shift+J keystrokes.

I'm trying Notepad++ again, and it seems a bit better this time around.

However, one thing I am noticing is that when I bring up preferences, then switch away from the program, then switch back again, preferences is completely gone. Attempting to bring it up again does nothing.  If I close the current Notepad++ file window, preferences reappears, so it would seem that it is somehow in a hidden tab which most likely is not accessible via keystroke. I'll bet you can click somewhere with a mouse and have it magically appear.

Does anyone know of a fix for this?
