Hi Scott, Joseph and others,
It was great fun for me too to be a part of the recent Accessible
World Techtalk presentation, and am thankful to Joseph for the same.
Just like this recent Techtalk event related to NVDA, I would
encourage everyone to participate in this, and future events,
including the NVDACon International 2016, of course. Looking forward
to seeing you out there, Scott, and many others.
Thanks.

Hello Joseph and all.
First of all I wanted to say thanks Joseph, that was fun to listen to.
I will have to reinstall the plugin though because I tried to talk and
it didn't work i think.
But, thanks again.
Maybe some day I'll actually get to talk to you all in voice during one
of these things.

I'm planning to be there during at least some of the nvda con sessions.
Sounds like it'll be fun.

Well, that is all for now.

Talk to you all later.

Accessible go program ?

Patrick Le Baudour
 

Hello,

I know it is unlikely, but just in case...
Does anyone know of a go program that could be used with nvda ? Especially one that could read sgf files.

Thanks.

Re: the talk tonight

 

I agree, sadly an hour in barely 30 minutes after start I had to go for lunch, household chores, and well a few other things.
One suggestion I have always had over addons which I never got to during the talk was that I wander if we could expand the functionality of the nvda addon manager.
Be able to search for addons, display all addons and either choose the dev or the stable version tabs of the manager.
Basically a frontend for the addons site similar to what mozilla uses it would be good.
we could also have a tab for tutorials and other interesting casts and links to who knows.
It could be part of nvda and maybe a sepperate thing who knows.

Did you adjust your punctuation settings perhaps?
NVDA menu, Preferences, Punctuation/symbol pronunciation.
In the list, hit . (the period key).
You should hear:
. sentence ending; Replacement: dot; Level: all; Preserve: always
Press it again, you should hear:
.; Replacement: dot; Level: some; Preserve: never
If those aren't set correctly, set them that way using the combo boxes
after them.

Re: still some carricter help

Gene
 

I don't know why you are getting those results.  What you are hearing doesn't match how NVDA is supposed to work.  If you hold the numpad insert and press numpad 1, you should hear something about no more review modes if you are in the last mode you can move back to.  But if the numpad insert were being held or were stuck on, you shouldn't be able to use f5 to spell the current word.  That command requires that numpad insert not be on. 
 
As I said, I don't know what the problem is but why not try a portable copy either of the current version of NVDA or of the last version that worked properly?  It's always a good idea to have a portable version of an earlier version of NVDA that worked properly on your machine.  Every time you upgrade, there is a risk of something not working properly and if you keep a portable version that worked properly, you can run it when you need it and try to solve the problem with the new version of NVDA if you wish but still be able to do what you want.
 
I don't know if this is an NVEDA problem or something else.  Testing with a portable version of the last version of NVDA that worked properly will tell you.  If it works properly, it's an NVDA problem and you may want to try completely uninstalling and reinstalling NVDA.  If the portable version no longer works properly, then your problem is something else.
 
Someone else will tell you how to completely uninstall NVDA if you need to know.  I've never done it and don't have the description that has been given on the list on my computer.

Numpad 4 5 and 6 are the same for word.

7 8 and 9 are the same for line.

These commands are not working in Microsoft word 2013 in the proofing tool bar with nvda 16.1

I don't know how different versions of Microsoft Word display such material.  It used to be displayed in a list and you could not left and right arrow to spell just as you can't in a list of file and folder names.  Use numpad 1 to move backward and numpad 3 to move forward.  These are screen review commands.  I don't know if you would benefit from using screen review commands anywhere else but you might benefit from learning basic commands. 

Numpad 1 is move back to and read previous character.  2 is read current character.  3 is move to and read next character.

Numpad 4 5 and 6 are the same for word.

7 8 and 9 are the same for line.

Numpad one says no previous review mode. Numpad 2 says no objects, numpad 3
says absolutely nothing. I tried numpad arrow twice quickly and it spells
the word but again doesn't let me arrow through the word by carricter. Do
you know why the capslock arrow key doesn't work like it did in NVDA 15?
Also in NVDA 16.1 doesn't the NVDA shift z work? Have they changed the key
sequence?

Hi Scott, Joseph and others,
It was great fun for me too to be a part of the recent Accessible
World Techtalk presentation, and am thankful to Joseph for the same.
Just like this recent Techtalk event related to NVDA, I would
encourage everyone to participate in this, and future events,
including the NVDACon International 2016, of course. Looking forward
to seeing you out there, Scott, and many others.
Thanks.

Hello Joseph and all.
First of all I wanted to say thanks Joseph, that was fun to listen to.
I will have to reinstall the plugin though because I tried to talk and
it didn't work i think.
But, thanks again.
Maybe some day I'll actually get to talk to you all in voice during one
of these things.

I'm planning to be there during at least some of the nvda con sessions.
Sounds like it'll be fun.

Well, that is all for now.

Talk to you all later.
