Hi Aravind,
The Omnipage and JAWS OCR equivalent for NVDA is its own Tessarac
based OCR add-on available from the community portal website at
http://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/ocr.en.html
Let us know in case you or others encounter difficulties while using the same.
Thanks.

Re: Accessible imaging Software with NVDA?

 

Well if you can get a windows talking pe I am sure someone will tell you where the heck to get that its somewhere on briansmart.com, well if you go to runtime.org or search for drive image xml you can happily make an image of whatever and back it up to a drive.
You need the module to add to your boot p image or simply have as a portable on hand.
You will need speech to actually run the image and restore the entire thing.
One thing though, I am assuming all these units have the same key or different keys.
Once you restore that machine I am unsure if the image will be activated or not.
I am unsure if by restoring you will invalidate your current key, yes you can change it but I am unsure how it works.
You may want to have the net turned off from all machines till you put in the right keys.
What I have tended to do with programs at least is have everything with switches in a batch script, run that as admin etc.
Before I did the remote and service thing, I had a small bit of software setup on the system that logged all keypresses and things the user did.
If a certain file or files existed in a certain location, then it would access a dropbox share and run the files I set in them.
I never got it fully working though.
I never got round to completely automating the files though.
My plan was to somehow have it such that I could upload to the share all I needed, and then have something check for files run them, email me and then quit but it never happened because I couldn't find a way to handle it.
Now days I'd probably get one of the ransomware packages set something to run, then when the user started the system get a message saying the system was unusable and that it was going to update mode then it would do its thing, report back and say it was uptodate.
It would mean I had control of things and all I'd have to do was upload the right files to the dropbox share.
But it never got that far.
I am still searching for a way to do it, including logging certain events, crashes, problems, and have an option where if a user had a problem they could write it down somehow and get the right info and get it mailed to me then I could go fixing it remotely but I never got that far and I am no programmer.

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.

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!

i have a question about nvda 2016.3 and text selection.
in previous versions, when we press control+f9, we starting mark our
selection.
after that, when we press control+f10, our selection is copied to the
clipboard.
right?
now, in the new version, as usual, when we use control+f9, we specify
our
selection.
after finishing our selection, we should control+f10 twice quickly to
our
selection be copied.
but what happen if we use control+f10 once like previous versions?
for example: if we use it once, is it possible to use windows regular
commands like control+x control+c and control+v?
thanks for your help and God bless you!

Quentin,



You say that the copy selection (F10 twice) should only move the caret
if certain objects are in focus. What does this mean?



I have tried the F9 and double F10 sequence with NVDA+6 set to "caret
moves review cursor " "on" and "off" alternately, but the double F10
always moves the caret to the copied text. To be sure that I am making
myself clear: in the sample, when I double click F10 to copy "Bert", I
find the caret has jumped from the last line where I removed "Brown"
to the immediate right edge of the word Bert" on the top line.



How can I get the caret to stay in place and not move up?



All the best,

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.

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

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

I have repeated this several times with both a single insert+F10 and a

Re: microsoft word 2-16 and outlook 2016:

 

Hmmm.
Whenever I have switched last I simply resubbed my email lists and such, on email addresses.
On my tb I did a straight export from eudora and it worked.
If you find your .pst file which is usually in documents\outlook files or %appdata%\office\outlook or something like that you should in theory be able to import your mail and contacts at least.
I don't use other features of outlook though, does outlook crash with other readers, ie jaws?
I had outlook do bad things not syncing devices and being bad last week with dad's iphone and his main system mail.
After repairing the icloud system, I had to end up deleting his entire profiles, recreating it again, using his allready imported datafile on his system then subbing everything again again.
Have you tried to reinstall or repair office?

for example: if we use it once, is it possible to use windows regular commands like control+x control+c and control+v?
thanks for your help and God bless you!

Re: Finding in MS Word

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Christo,

Yes control+alt+y should work to "find next" in any version of word - at least 2010 through 2016.  Alternatively the previously mentioned control+page up and control+page down should work exactly the same (unless you go into the goto dialog and use it to go to something else).

Regards

Quentin.

Hello all

The shortcut key for next search result is ctrl+alt+y. Nice and easy.

Kind regards

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!

This has not been the case in the past and I don't think I'm doing anything
differently than I had been before.  I have, regardless of screen reader,
had many instances where I didn't seem to get the screen reader find with
INS+CTRL+F but generally would on a subsequent try.  Not in this case.  I
smell a possible bug.

Re: OCR software

 

yes it does, its only 200 aud, and is cheaper than other ocr stuff.
Pluss abbyy has a habbit of including free offers in their software.
Unlike other software that could include malware or something like it, abbyy has always included the low cost software packages in its pro software.
a form filler for abbyy 6 and or 7, something for something else.
Right now its the 9 buck screen shot reader.
So yeah its always nice.
