Re: Charts in Excel 2016

Christo Vorster
 

Hi

 

I promised to send you the notes that we use at college, unfortunately the teacher giving the training left for some appointment before I could get it from her. However, it seems that the only answer to access those charts would be to upgrade to Office 2016, and then I don’t even know whether any screen reader would be able to access it.

 

Let’s see what we can doe regarding your problem on Monday because our college is closed for the weekend

But Excel 2010 doesn't have the ability to natively draw histograms and box plots isn't it? These 2 charts are required for my Statistics class. Only Excel 2016 has the capability to draw histograms and box plots.


Re: OpenOffice?

Walmir Schultz <wsautodidata@...>
 

Hi,


For my use, OpenOffice is even worse than LibreOffice.

It appears that those suites and NVDA have some form of incompatibility because when used together, both become unstable.

In LibreOffice, working with a very complex spreadsheet for some time causes NVDA to stop talking (using F2 to reestablish things don't work).

In some cases, Calc totally stops responding.

Calculations with very large chunks of data (as adding cells of wntire columns become VERY SLOW).

Change spreadsheets with PAGE DOWN and PAGE UP have strange results: instead of speaking the name of the spreadsheet, sometimes NVDA becomes mute.

NVDA+SPACE don't work.

And so on...

I used MS Office some time ago in a friend computer and was amazed how well NVDA and MS suite function together, but I can't afford buying Office :(

Hi

 

At Kaleidoscope College we train Excel. If you will be patient for a few hours, I’ll send you a complete list of instructions on charts. We are using NVDA 2016.3, Office 2010 and Windows 10.

 

Til later today

Adding my voice to this, I'd also like to figure out if its possible to retro add reading order changes to a pdf which was made untagged and contans many changes in formatting columns etc, which in a traditional pdf reader end up all jumbled up after the first change.

Re: Non Adobe PDF Readers that are accessible?

Mallard
 

Hello,


It depends on what you want to do.


If you want to read pdf files without converting them, I think Foxit is still viable, although I haven't used it for some time.


If you don't tneed to actually seethe pdf file as such, but simply convert it, you can either use Sumatra Pdf (which allows you to save as txt, and maintains most of the formatting), or Codex, which is a re-packaged Calibre, and allows you to convert from one to thousands of files in one go (takes time, of course).


In this latter case you can chose among a number of different formats.


There's another lovely programme, which is not free, but incredibly efficient, which is called


Qread, by Accessible Apps


Here's the link to it:


https://q-continuum.net/qread/


And here's the description from the website:


QRead is an innovative and powerful eText reader for the Windows platform. Perfect for students, professionals, and casual readers alike, QRead provides access to a wide range of e-book formats with support for bookmarking, searching, and more all in a convenient and intuitive tabbed interface.
Try a free demo now!
Enjoy the power and freedom to read
Have you read a good book lately? Are you tempted by the thousands of books online but can't figure out how to read them accessibly?
You've probably heard that the way the world reads books is changing. EBooks, digital versions of print books, have exploded in popularity. While people still buy print books, many more buy electronic books online and read them with devices like computers, tablets, and phones. EBooks are often more affordable, are more portable, and are easily searchable, making them ideal for today's lifestyle.
There are hundreds of thousands of eBook titles available in various formats these days, ranging from fun and lighthearted to serious scholarly works. There are books for students of all ages from childrens books to textbooks for postsecondary classes.
There are all kinds of novels, mysteries, romances, as well as cookbooks, biographies, and self-help books. Many magazines offer online versions as well.
For the blind, this wealth of new material has offered a mixed blessing. On one hand the amount of new books and magazines available for us to read is unprecedented. Until recently, the only ways to read a print book were to scan it or hope that one of the library services recorded it. Now that publishers are putting their books into digital form on the computer, scanning isn't necessary anymore.
However, if you have any experience reading electronic books as a blind person, you've probably encountered some of the following hurdles:
• Books are in a variety of formats requiring many different applications to open.
• Some popular reading applications are difficult to use with a screenreader
• Some reading applications only read with their built-in voice, not letting a person see how words are spelled or change the voice that reads the book.
• There is no standard way of keeping your place in a book, especially if your computer crashes!
• Navigation, particularly by large blocks of text such as pages or chapters is often impossible.
My name is Christopher Toth, and I wrote QRead to make reading fun and easy again. I need the software myself, and I want to help other visually impaired people discover the pleasure of reading e-books.
QRead lets the reader focus on the content of books without worrying about the mechanics of reading. It has comfort and flexibility at its core, fading into the background as you reach the climax in a thriller or romance. Book navigation is easy and uses keystrokes blind readers already use with their screenreader, so they can focus on what really matters.
Read a user's thought's on QRead here (opens in new tab)
QRead Features
QRead is both easy to use and powerful in several ways. Here is a list of features you'll love in QRead.
• QRead saves your place in each book you read, even if your computer crashes while reading. No more struggling to find your place if you need to restart your machine for any reason.
• QRead lets each user use his or her screenreader and the voice they like best for reading
• Searching for text in a book is easy and fast.
• QRead can open multiple books, so students can move easily between books while doing research.
• QRead can set multiple bookmarks in each book, helping you move quickly to important content.
• Readers can navigate by page, heading, chapter, section, or percentage in a book as long as its format supports the type of navigation they want to use.
• Books open quickly, and QRead remembers which books have been opened recently.
• Users can copy text from the QRead window to other applications. This is especially useful if you want to quote a book for a research paper or speech.
• PDF files open more quickly than in Adobe Reader.
• QRead works with daisy files from Bookshare whether you keep your files zipped or prefer to extract them to folders.
• QRead's search feature supports using regular expressions for powerful searches.

Supported formats
QRead currently supports the following formats:
• PDF: QRead has industry leading PDF parsing support for extracting text streams from PDF.
• EPub: Easy access to all textual content from an unprotected ePub file.
• Bookshare Daisy: Open both zipped and unzipped bookshare Daisy files with support for requesting the bookshare user password.
• Mobipocket: Open unencrypted .mobi files
• HTML: Open a variety of HTML documents such as e-books and webpages
• Microsoft Office Word 2007 DocX
• Microsoft Compiled HTML Help CHM files
• Plain text files, also known as ASCII text files
Understanding Formats
Many of the formats mentioned in the list above may be familiar to you. I want to explain two of them in a little more detail.
EPub is a new standard format many publishers use for their books. It's somewhat similar to daisy in that it can contain navigation by page, chapter, and section. EPub files can contain both text and images. QRead can read the text in ePub files. Some ePub files have encryption on them, also known as DRM. QRead can read unprotected ePub files.
Pdf files are based on an older standard created by a company called Adobe. PDF files can contain text, forms, images, and graphs. Like EPub files, some PDF files are encrypted using DRM. QRead can read the text from unprotected PDF files.
A common practice some companies use in their product manuals is to scan images of the print manual and put just the images in their PDF file. If they do this, there is no text for QRead to speak. If you open a PDF file that seems to be blank, this is often the cause. If this happens, you will need to use OCR software such as Kurzweil or Openbook to process and read the images.
Test Drive QRead
Would you like to see what QRead is like before buying it? That's a smart idea. We have a demo you can use with e-books you already have on your hard drive.
If you're a parent or teacher of a blind child, our demo will let you try the software to see if the child responds well to the reading environment. The menus and hotkeys are simple enough that a child of 8 years or older should be able to operate the software comfortably.
I want you to enjoy reading again and think you'll love QRead once you try it. Download the demo today.
When you're ready to order QRead, our check-out system is easy to use and uses secure processing. You'll have your fully working copy of QRead in a matter of minutes and can focus on the pleasure of reading.

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.

Hi guys!
 
I downloaded the soft voice addon and tried to get it going and couldn’t.  The Addon manager saw it but it wouldn’t activate it.  It kept asking for a file name.  I even extracted the stuff in the folder.  How can I get Soft voice to work?  I’ve got SVox pico which  is okay but it’s a little muffled.  I don’t know if whoever did the addon can tweak the eq and make it better or not so I wanted to try soft voice.  Any help I can get will be appreciated.

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.

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?

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.

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.

The CTRL key + the return key or so know as the enter key will give you
that dialouge when sending.


Or under the file menu arrow until you get to send message I think it is
called then press the enter key then it is on its way.

Thanks in advance.

Hi I know that when reading a message in the windows 10 mail ap, nvda keeps saying read-only. Will this issue be fixed in the next release?

Hi Arlene

I used it on Word 2010 and Word 2016. It works well.

Have a nice day

Okay, that is good to know.Does this apply to all versions of word? From word 2010 to 2016?

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 find with
INS+CTRL+F but generally would on a subsequent try. Not in this
INS+CTRL+case. I
smell a possible bug.
