Hi,

What version of Studio and the SPL add-on are you using? If after installing SPL add-on and restarting NVDA, if SPL Settings does not appear, chances are that either you are using Studio 5.20 or earlier or something went wrong when loading the add-on.

Cheers,

Joseph (current SPL add-on maintainer)

Hello,

How can I find the instructions for assigning the keys for n v d a to work with station playlist.

Please note: I have the ad-on for spl as well.

For example, in jaws, if I press the letter m, this will allow me the chance to talk on air, while my music is playing softly in the background.

It appears in N v d a, that this does not work, for some reason.

Hope that this makes since.

I appreciate any help.

I am new to using n v d a with spl.

Thanks!

Regards,

Thomas.

Hi all
I think the problem caused by Office 2016. My friend use Microsoft Office 2016. I created a portable NVDA from my current NVDA, and shared to her, but the problem still occur after installing that one. Right now I don't have any computer with office 2016 install, and try to make sure this is an issue so if any of you using the latest NVDA with office 2016, please share expirience. If this is an issue, I'm going to create a tiket on github.

Hi Giles
Thanks for your instruction. I know this, but my friend said she can edit her file normaly. Just feel a little annoy while NVDA read this each time she navigate. I'll call her to understand the problem clearly.
Appreciated your help, and replies from other member.

Hi Cuong,

most of the time this happens with Word, it is because the document has been emailed to the NVDA user. Regardless of whether the NVDA user has opened it directly from the email or has saved it to their computer first and then opened it, Word will open it in protected mode, which is read-only and therefore it can't be edited and many of the ribbon options, like chnaging font or changing the view to draft view will not work.

To prevent that happening, press ALT+f to open the file menu, press the down arrow key three times to get to the Info menu, press Tab to enter that menu and then press the down arrow to get to the Protected View menu. Press Tab again and you'll be on the Enable Editing option and, if you press enter, that document will become unprotected and the NVDA user should no longer hear the warning that the document is protected and can't be edited. It will remain unprotected even after you close the document or shut down the computer. The same works with Excel files :)

I hope that helps.

Re: strange problem with NVDA on websites with lots of adds

Gene
 

I hope we get more comments and that more people try to duplicate the problem. As with the problem I discussed where NVDA stops reading on some web pages, while I've seen it discussed, I haven't seen much discussion so I have no idea if this is a rare or common problem. I don't think the version of Windows matters. I am using Windows 7 but I have seen one or two other people complain about the stop reading problem and I suspect they are using Windows 10.

Yes, you are right, NVDA does skip stuff on that site. Any idea how to
fix that? I think that article was the one where she talked about
Sunday school, and using read to end the first time, NVDA completely
skipped over that part. I've only had the repeating issue on
radioinsight.com, and only then when I have a lot of windows open.

This problem may be related to another problem I've seen on occasion and

the page to the clipboard, paste it into Notepad, and read the material I

The behavior I observed on this page is that now and then a phrase will be
skipped. I can go back and read by line and the phrase will be spoken as it

should be. I saw this happen three times in the part of the article I read

on this page. I had to read quite a bit of it after the first two skips
near the beginning for it to happen a third time.

Also, a different problem I've seen a few people complain of and which
happens to me is that NVDA will stop reading in a browser when using read to

end on some pages. This appears to be some sort of reaction to one or more

types of formatting because it isn't limited to any specifric site or page
but may happen on this or that page on a certain site but not on others on
the same site.

Hi all,
Okay, this is probably one of the strangest problems I've seen.
Sometimes, NVDA will skip around websites that have lots of add
content, but not always, though I can't seem to make it work reliably.
Here's what happens:
1. I open several websites in Firefox, one in each window.
2. I try to read one of them using NVDA+Down Arrow.
3. As I'm reading them, NVDA either skips words or rereads words. I'd
post a link to where this is likely to happen, but I can't seem to
reproduce it reliably myself. Today I revisited the site I was having
this problem with yesterday, but it didn't do it there. It did,
however, do it on the site I first discovered it on a couple weeks ago
today.

Hi all,
I had to use Narrator to get me out of a tight spot yesterday, and
I've noticed this in previous experiences as well. Narrator, and
every other screen reader on Windows 7, gave the alt+tab list as a
number out of total programs, for example Windows Media Player 2 of

Everything else I've used with Windows 10 says "Windows Media Player row 1 column 2."

Hi all,
Last night's question about Teams got me thinking, there seems to be
an issue system-wide with split buttons. Based on the fact that the
same issue happens with both NVDA and Narrator, I'd think the issue is
Windows, not NVDA. When I press alt to go to the home tab in Excel,
then tab down until I hear insert cells, then press either space or
enter, a new row is automatically inserted rather than having the menu
brought up. However, if I press alt, H, I, the menu opens. I'm not
sure if Teams has anything in the way of those shortcuts, but this
does seem like something that needs to be addressed.

Use Alt+↓ or F4 to expand split buttons, at least in Office applications.

Can you check to make sure that your keyboard layout is set to desktop? The synth settings ring is accessed with Ctrl+<arrow> on desktop, but Ctrl+Shift+<arrow> on laptop. You can find the keyboard layout under NVDA's keyboard settings(NVDA+Ctrl+K).

Hello.
1. hold down alt
2. tap the other alt key.
now press tab and it should work fine. There is a setting but I don't give it as you I believe need to edit the registry.

Hi all,
I had to use Narrator to get me out of a tight spot yesterday, and
I've noticed this in previous experiences as well. Narrator, and every
other screen reader on Windows 7, gave the alt+tab list as a number
out of total programs, for example Windows Media Player 2 of 3. Now on
10, Narrator is the only screen reader that does this. Everything else
I've used with Windows 10 says "Windows Media Player row 1 column 2."
To me this is not useful at all, because I have no idea how many rows
there are, or how many columns are in a row. Is there a way to change
the way NVDA announces this?
Bob


is there some setting that controls this?

split buttons

Bob Cavanaugh
 

Hi all,
Last night's question about Teams got me thinking, there seems to be
an issue system-wide with split buttons. Based on the fact that the
same issue happens with both NVDA and Narrator, I'd think the issue is
Windows, not NVDA. When I press alt to go to the home tab in Excel,
then tab down until I hear insert cells, then press either space or
enter, a new row is automatically inserted rather than having the menu
brought up. However, if I press alt, H, I, the menu opens. I'm not
sure if Teams has anything in the way of those shortcuts, but this
does seem like something that needs to be addressed.

Hello everyone,

Does anyone have experienced signing documents with NVDA?

I tried the sign document in Word but it does not seem to find the certificate.

In Adobe, I tried to use the sign document function, but when you activate the button, there is no feedback from NVDA.

If you have any hints except adding a jpg of your hand written signature, it would be helpful.

Best

Re: copying to clipboard

Perhaps there is no way to stop it. If you don't use the add-on except rarely to add text to the clipboard, you may want to disable it until you want to use it. I rarely use the add-on and that's what I did.

Subject: [nvda] copying to clipboard



Hi guys:



Since I obtained the clipboard addon for nvda,

Every time I do a ctrl-c to copy data to the clipboard,

I get a dialogue asking me to confirm that I really wish to copy it;

How do I turn this dialogue verification off?



I went into clip designer in settings but I only found three choices in the “confirm copy when”

Always, when clipboard contains text, and when clipboard is not empty.

I do not see a choice for “never ask”.



Please advise as you like.

Re: quick dictionary

Oleksandr Gryshchenko
 

Hello Farhan,

Sorry, but unfortunately two services used in the Quick Dictionary add-on do not support the Bangla (bn).

Lexicala online dictionary supports 50 languages:
https://www.lexicala.com/resources#fiftylanguages

And Yandex dictionaries supports only 28 languages.

I plan to add other online services that will support more features.

Have a nice weekend!
Oleksandr
