Re: NVDA announcing dot every time it encounters a period punctuation

brice Mijares
 

I never went into NVDA settings today until Gene gave me a set of directions to do in punctuations. But instead, I fired up a different laptop and compared punctuation settings and found my problem.  Earlier, I turned key describer on thinking I could find the acute symbol and was punching all kind of key combinations and somehow, I screwed something up. All is good again. thanks.

Re: NVDA announcing dot every time it encounters a period punctuation

brice Mijares
 

Gene, I have no Idea how I screwed things up in punctuation. I fired up my

other Lenovo laptop and compared the punctuation  settings and one setting was different. once punctuation was opened, I tabbed over twice and set it to all and now I don't hear the dot when it comes to a period. Thanks for the
info. Problem solved. Never di fine the acute symbol. I give up. Don't want to mess up my settings again. Have a nice weekend.

It does, but in pieces, at least for Windows 10.  The initial line says just Windows, but the line we were discussing before, that comes after the copyright line, says, "Windows 10," followed by the edition.

Like I said previously, if Microsoft had a lick of sense the initial announcement would say "Windows 10 Pro, Version {version}, Build {build}," and, ideally and even though it's very seldom anything but 64-bit, I'd have it say either 32-bit or 64-bit after the previously mentioned information.

No disrespect intended, Brice, but something that may be of benefit to

presents a nice list.

I don’t think that the dialog says the overall windows version (such as 7 or 10), but it does say the build number as the version number (such as Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.867)).

Re: Accessible Alternatives to Microsoft Office

Hettie <woehler.hettie@...>
 

Thanks for all the replies. It seems that I was to impatient as it took about 10 minutes to uninstall. My problem with the program was that the spread sheet part was totally inaccessible with NVDA. I am using Open Office again.

Thanks for the Run command to open the uninstall section instead of searching for it, much faster.

Launch the Programs & Features directly.

Use WindowsKey  + R   for the Run dialog

After dialog opens onto the "uninstall or change a program" panel, focus into the list of programs, and locate "Softmaker FreeOffice 2018"

If you have a mouse, right button click for context menu; or use alt-gr keyboard menu button to expose context menu.

Select the uninstall.

Alternatively, once selected you can advance through the UI to the Uninstall button--crummy sequence though.

Deal with UAC (provide an administrator credential if needed).

Uninstall will proceed with NVDA sounding progress bar.

At the end of uninstall a Softmaker survey web page will open with focus.

Finish that as you prefer, then relocate the Programs and Features panel and close it out--not a good idea to leave it running.


issue with documents folder

Don H
 

I reported earlier that on my Win 10 20h2 system and running the latest version of NVDA that thatevery other time I used the shortcut I had on my desktop the documents folder would open but NVDA would not read the contents of the folder.
Well after trying many other things including running dism I removed the shortcut from my desktop and went through the process of adding the shortcut again. Works as it as it should now. Why that fixed it haven't a clue but it did.
