Re: microsoft word 2-16 and outlook 2016:

 

Hmmm have you tried uninstaling and reinstalling or even using an older office version?
This is really odd.
there is a scan pst file somewhere if that is the issue, some mail can become misbehaved but hmmm it could be an nvda issue who knows.
Not exactly part of the problem, I had an issue on a system using office 97, back before the big band days.
At that time resources were limited, I told the user he had to switch mailers and since things were being really bad, I did a full reformat which fixed everything then started fresh with eudora.
He lost all his data though.
On a recent time, I had a server on the blink that was being replaced, however I wasn't fast enough and it blew its master power unit on its raid array.
All data is incripted, but it needs that supply to function, that module was a burning mess and the system wouldn't boot.
There is a way to get the data, however its secured for a reason.
Luckily most files were on an external drive or on several cloud drives thank god for imap.
However a large email database was lost and while this was not a large issue well there you go.
My only complaint with outlook is that it saves all its data in humungious data files and hmmm I don't like that idea.
At least with eudora/thunderbird, etc all data is in different files.
What you may want to try if you have all your email information.
1. go to control panel, mail.
delete your accounts.
back up your pst files then delete your profile.
go to where your profile was stored and empty all locations.
Go to where your outlook app data is stored and clear all that.
Then restart outlook.
Ms outlook will realise it can't find anything and will crash, it will then recreate itself.
After that, if you use imap or whatever, I used the map since I had a multi device situation, I set it all up, then either import or from the mail control panel, add your pst file back in, make it the default one and not the data file that is there.
I have done this and it worked.
The only thing Ithen had to do was repair bits of icloud that got corrupted and resync the data from that.
This crash happened earlier this month and it works now.

Hi Sean,

Yes, I have tried repairing office without success. I have access to the pst file so that is not a problem. I have too many message rules and a lot of archived e-mail to just switch.

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?

I need to do a lot of formatting of documents such as using styles so cannot switch to alternative office applications because as far as I know they lack the underlying infrastructure to communicate fully with NVDA.

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.

Outlook 2016 works with NVDA but there is one issue which renders it

or replying to a message, NVDA locks up randomly. The only way to
recover is to reboot the computer. I have raised tickets about this

Re: Non Adobe PDF Readers that are accessible?

 

its actually easier with the codex jscholes.net project to do this. you can convert 1 file at a time from the shell.
You can't convert multipul files from the shell as each conversion runs codex instance to convert.
You can however do this from the main program itself which I guess is usefull if you have umpteen hundred files but codex is quick enough.
You can make txt rtf, epub, mobi, docx and pdf from the same explorer shell and I assume you can convert normal files to that format without the right app installed.
For me that is a lot better than any adobe product.
I do use adobe or rather did as some documents just won't convert right but between this and a few other things if all you use abbyy products for is conversion you may want to try this thing it all depends what you convert and how much.
For me its ebooks and manuals and I don't always have to many of those.

Charts in Excel 2016

 

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to change the axis option of a chart in Excel using NVDA? I tried to create charts in Excel and I'm having difficulties changing the axis options, specifically on the right sidebar when I press space or enter on the axis option nothing happens. As I'm taking Statistics class now, the ability to create charts correctly and accurately in Excel is an absolute must.

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!

Ok, I'll grab the link and send it over. As to the questions, yeah, you can image it, how ever you like. As I'm sure, you are already aware, you'd probably want to first back up the extra stuff, movies, music, applications you don't need, etc, else the image may be quite large. You are also able to use the PE to do an installation of windows as well.

Just as long as you know what it takes to boot from cd/USB on your machine, you should be able to get into the PE on the new computer and access the previously created image, which I'd assume you would have stored on an external.

As you probably know already, if you had made an image of a registered installation of windows and then try to use that image on the new computer, you may find that your registration is no longer valid. I also don't' really know what to expect with differences in drivers on the new hardware that you move the image over to.

If you're simply going to move over to another hd though, it works quite well and is what I used to migrate my installation of 7 over to my SSD, when I purchased it.
My apologies if I've missed anything or slightly misunderstood what you're trying to do, but hit me up if I can help with anything.

I don't have the link for either here on hand, but I can get both of them, if you are interested. The talking PE is the one that's updated by a guy, Carlos, over on the techtalk list. I can personally vouch for the PE for making images of my windows systems, as that's what I use and it works extreamly well.
Hope that helps. :)
Take care.

Hello,
Does anyone know of any accessible imaging software (preferably free) that will allow me to backup all my installed programs and files, preferably customize them, then allow me to install the image on a new computer with similar hardware?
I have been asked to setup around 50 computers with the exact same programs and file structure and then maintain them.
I know of all kinds of imaging programs:
Macrium Reflect
Acronis True Image
Symantec Ghost Solution Suite
AOMEI Backupper
Image for Windows
O&O DiskImage Professional
Paragon Backup (The one Microsoft uses in their stores and one I would like to use)
StorageCraft ShadowProtect Desktop
Cobian Backup

And the list goes on...

So what have people used? Also, would it be possible to install the image with NVDA?
I see there is Winstaller, but it doesn't look like a traditional imaging program, so I don't know if it allows installing images on similar hardware which is critical here.
Thanks,
