Hello Group,

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

Recently, I joined the Movie Data Base mailing list.  When I receive messages from that list, they are not readable by either NVDA or JAWS.  However, if I load them into Windows Mail in Windows Ten, they read well.  Here is a link to one example.  What is happening with this particular e-mail?

Hi Friends?

please share with me some links or files to learn how to do so?

Hi,

Which GoldWave version and the add-on release are you using? Does this happen when you restart NVDA while focused on GoldWave itself, specifically while an audio file is open?

Cheers,

Hi Nolan,

Thanks for sharing the links

Many of those updates go back a long time

There have been times where I could go months without this problem.

I have never associated this with the computer sleeping
However, there have been times when I came back to my computer in the morning  and discovered it locked up

I should have mentioned previously that I use espeak
I don't know if this is common to the problem

Re: Beep Option and Verbal Alerts

Jacob Kruger
 

Stanley, from the NVDA settings, object presentation category, there is the option to change progress bar updates, if that's what you're referring to - I haven't used outlook myself for a very long time - and, the keystroke to cycle through the available options should be NVDA + U under desktop layout.

If you have a spam message in your inbox, press J to specify it as spam.

In your spam folder press Shift + J to mark it as Not Spam. Thunderbird moves the unwanted file to the spam folder and in the spam folder the file you specify as not spam is is moved to the inbox.

Fix for MathPlayer Issue not fixed by running COM Registration Fixing Tool

ramamariano
 

Moderator's Preface:  This reply came in this morning in regard to a topic that had been inactive for a bit over a year.  In that topic, entitled, confused, Tyler Spivey, in message  , gave a proposed solution original complaint after I had given a link to the GitHub NVDA Issue for same that he had created.  The issue remains open, and because it remains open, what follows may help someone who may still be having it.  I didn't want people to think that Mariano's helpful response "came out of nowhere" nor to have a clue about the background.  So, without further ado:

-----
Just my own experience regarding this topic if helps anyone in any way.
My situation:
Windows 10 64b
NVDA 2020.4
 
Uninstalling Mathplayer 4 produces the inglorious "Unkown" issue in Firefox, Taskbar, etc.
Trying "COM Registration Fixing tool"; doesn't work.
Trying all the tweaks here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/2807#issuecomment-320149243; doesn't work.
Trying Tyler Spivey Python console command; return "SyntaxError: invalid syntax".
 
Since i get "invalid syntax" error I try to search for typos and found there´s a letter "u" on the bottom of the line I can remove.

Original command:
import comtypes,ctypes;p=comtypes.typeinfo.LoadTypeLibEx(r"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll");ctypes.windll.oleaut32.RegisterTypeLib(p, ur"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll", None)

Fixed command (at least for me):
import comtypes,ctypes;p=comtypes.typeinfo.LoadTypeLibEx(r"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll");ctypes.windll.oleaut32.RegisterTypeLib(p, r"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll", None)
That works in my case.
 
So, steps for the fix:
1.Run NVDA as administrator (required).
2.Open NVDA Menu, then Tools, then Python Console.
3.Paste this line:

import comtypes,ctypes;p=comtypes.typeinfo.LoadTypeLibEx(r"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll");ctypes.windll.oleaut32.RegisterTypeLib(p, r"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll", None)

4.Hit enter, it will return a number (-2147319780).
5.Restart NVDA and check if Firefox works ok.

Hello. If you’re referring to Microsoft Teams then I can tell you that I am one of the many Teams users who uses the program with screen readers, including NVDA. For several reasons I am not able to engage in off-list conversations as I don’t have the time to provide one on one support. However, if your questions are specifically related to NVDA and its interaction with Teams I would imagine this list is an appropriate place to ask your questions. If your question is more specific to Teams and how to use it with screen readers in general you are free to join the Teams-access list, which I own. To subscribe, send email to

Teams-access+subscribe@groups.io

 

Asking questions on a mailing list is much better than engaging in a dialog with an individual. Asking on a list appropriate for the question means that more people can respond and can give you more information than you might otherwise get from a one on one dialog. Those who may be interested in the topic also benefit from the discussion. Finally, group messages are archived, allowing people who may have similar questions to read the exchange later on when they need the information.
