Re: RE dropbox with XP

Brian's Mail list account BY <bglists@...>
 

No problems with dropbox on win7 or 10, or at present in xp either if the registry mod is done. On the dropbox web site there are some very easy instructions about shared folders and how they work and how you invite others to join one. Of course for the free service you get limited storage and to some extent limited facilities, but there is no problem sharing the files in this way so everyone can change them,you an even see when they were changed and by whom.

I'm assuming this is the reason they use Dropbox. If you are on a slow connection also be aware that the files are not sent in order, they are sent in size order, the smallest first.

Subject: [nvda] RE dropbox with XP


Hello NVDA group,

I did not catch all the previous discussion concerning dropbox, but am
wondering are dropbox and the current version of NVDA compatible on
Win7 computers?

Also, is there a review or tutorial online that will teach one how to
access and use dropbox?

I belong to an online writing group, and part of its practice is to
use dropbox for written submissions. Thanks.

Re: Finding in MS Word

Christo Vorster
 

Hi everyone

 

I used to use ctrl+f for find in Word.

 

Since I got the advice on search that circulated lately on the list I started using it as it was set out in the list. It works fantastically well.

 

I don’t think that hitting F6 several times is really the answer, rather use the escape and ctrl+pgdn, as described.

 

Thanks for all the input from all the listers.

 

Have a nice day

I can confirm this also. Windows 7 and office 2010

here are some tips to work with the find functionality of word 2010:

  • hit ctrl + f to go to the search field
  • enter the term you wish to search for, and hit enter
  • use f6 (several times, maybe 3) to get back to the document, where the first result is focused
  • to go to next / previous search result: hit f6, the focus will jump to the navigation toolbar, from there click previous / next search result
  • again, use f6, several times, as needed, to get back to the document where the search result is focused

 

I don't know the shortcuts for previous / next search result, sorry!

hope that helps!

Re: microsoft word 2-16 and outlook 2016:

 

I would use something other than ms outlook.
Unless it can be fixed.
I abandond ms office ages ago.
In fact I think if I ever hit the need for office that I will either use old office xp which I legally own or one of the free office installs.
I do know that office 2007 or 2010 will work and with the features I use I don't need the cloud office apps and so won't run into a problem.
Since I do have jarte though its about all I will need.
If libreoffice works well or openoffice that is then I will probably use that.
True, if someone offers me office whatever the latest is and its funded for my business then hmmm.
Maybe I will use jaws because thats what people do for office and just use nvda for my personal use but I'd really like to use nvda for as much as I can.
Technically I could use my other comercial readers but since nvda needs to be used on a lot of things well.
I have got used to the ribbon in office and the shortcuts and it works as it should as long as I know the various code sequences.

Re: INSERT F RESPONDING IRREGULARLY

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Christo,

Have you got the review cursor following the system caret?  When you press NVDA+f it actually reads the formatting information at the review cursor, not the system caret.  With the two linked, the results are the usually the same, but what you're describing sounds like the two cursors are in different places.

If you go into the NVDA menu, NVDA+n then press P then go down to "Review cursor", there are options for when the review cursor moves.  You can also press NVDA+6 to toggle whether the caret moves the review cursor.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi Group

 

Since the update to NVDA 2016.2.1 we encounterd strange behaviour when using insert f to read the font attributes.

 

Sometimes I hear what I need to, but more often than not I hear anything but the required response.

 

We are currently using NVDA 2016.3, Office 2010 and Windows 10.

 

Some of the responses I get are:

 

1.       “No formatting information”, when I know that there should be information.

2.       “Arial 20 PT”, when I know for a fact it should be 12 Pt, because I checked in the font menu, ctrl+d.

3.       Often I change alignment, centre or right aligned, and insert F simply don’t announce it.

We are training students to do word processing and it is highly important for them to be able to confirm that they did what they are required.

 

Could the experts please assist us.

 

If you require more info, please ask.

 

Thanks for all the good work you do.

Re: IMAP mail rules in gmail using NVDA

 

Ketan,

        All folder and rule setup for IMAP is generally done on the e-mail server and in the case of Gmail that means using their webmail interface, settings page, Filters and Blocked Addresses "tab"/link.

        I know that I posted step-by-step stuff on this at one point and can try to find it again if needed.  Be aware that what most of the world would call an e-mail folder Gmail terms a "label."  Labels are implemented as IMAP folders and I have no idea what possessed Google to call them labels instead.  You can create all these labels/folders before you do your filters if you so wish (and it is easier if you know what you want as far as folders) by using the Labels tab/link.

Just bought my copy and am looking forward to reading it. 

I’m also looking forward to the Excel book. I use Excel every day for work and want to be able to expand what I can do with it. I love the way NVDA works within Excel 2007 and we only use it as a giant database. 

Yes, Power Point would be awesome to tackle next along with Outlook. I especially need big help with the Outlook calendar. We live on that calendar at work and short of setting up an initial appointment, its layout stumps me.

Hello Quentin,


I tried to buy this ebook, but I made a stupid mistake and went and
re-bought the Basic Training ebook, whichI already have.


I wrote to Admin but, of course, you people "down under" are sleeping now...

Do you think it would be possible to change the download link, which I
haven't used, and send me one for the Microsoft Word ebook?


I'm a well-known "messer-upper", so please, bear with me... lol


Ciao, and thanks for your great work.

Ollie

Hi Cearbhall,

Glad you got it working!  Yes, the older way that operation worked did enable nifty things like in my example, although I think it also caused some confusion as well, so we'll see how this new way goes.

In the meantime, I better update the material - and I'll keep the old activity on hand just in case we ever go back :)

Oh, re where you end up after you copy text, if you are in an otherwise editable field, then the text is selected, as it would be if you had used the regular movement commands, so if you press say left arrow, you will end up at the start of the selection, and if you press right arrow, you will end up at the end of the selection.

Quentin,

 

Thanks that does explain what is happening! Hard to keep up with  all the changes, isn’t it?

 

OK then, so, I need to press NVDA +F10 twice. This does copy the text. But it activates the caret. So, if I am right about this, will it be necessary to advise the user to press control+end to get back to the location for the pasting operation?

 

If so, that’s a pity as you were describing a very neat little operation in the older version.

 

I wish you every success with this tutorial and I would like to help in any way I can. Please let me know if anything else needs an independent review!!

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Cearbhall,

 

Well picked up!  Yes that behaviour of the review cursor has changed just this week in NVDA 2016.3, and as you've reminded me, we need to update that sample section of the Basic Training for NVDA module.

 

Pressing NVDA+f10 twice (quickly) should copy the selection to the clipboard.  Depending on the type of object that has focus, selecting the text (the first press) may move the focus you are right, but it should copy if you press NVDA+f10 twice quickly - within say a second or less - similar to pressing NVDA+f12 twice quickly to get the date, or pressing any of the reading commands twice to spell something.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Quentin,

 

I was trying out the free sample on the web page.

 

I am not fully familiar with the review cursor and so I tried to follow the sample exercise.  as I am a bit confused about the copying stroke. The manual says insert+F9 to start the mark and then one keystroke of insert F10 to copy it. However, NVDA keyboard help says that NVDA F10 should be pressed twice to copy the sleection. I also found that after pressing insert F10 twice, the caret  moved to the position of the word being copied and moved away from the last line position where it was expected to be.

 

I have repeated this several times with both a single insert+F10 and a double insert+F10 and I cannot get it to work.  Any advice?

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Subject: [nvda] RE dropbox with XP

Hello NVDA group,

I did not catch all the previous discussion concerning dropbox, but am wondering are dropbox and the current version of NVDA compatible on
Win7 computers?

Also, is there a review or tutorial online that will teach one how to access and use dropbox?

I belong to an online writing group, and part of its practice is to use dropbox for written submissions. Thanks.
