I've thought about switching to Jarte, but I don't know if it has formatting features, like bold, italics and all that.

I am unsure but there was a program called lotus symphony, true thats not developed anymore but if that works well.

Symphony was the core code which libra and Open are based around as far as I know.
Jarte has issues with tables.
I recently was sent tabular word doc and it ended up as one big lump of text, which in some ways is fine, but I hate to imagine what that might look like when printed out in Jarte.


Believe it or not even word 2002 seems to work in windows 10 as long as you put sp 3 in as well.


I said this before. I personally feel that Microsoft makes changes for changes sake in office suites. OK the newer file formats can be useful but to me they are just a bolt on and ribbon menus were a step back for people who want to work logically from hierarchical menus.

Re: Request for comments: an audio backstage tour of Windows 10 App Essentials

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

I am finding a combined approach to tutorials more useful than a totally textual or totally audio one.
Some of the complex concepts are best explained with textual examples, while just basic descriptions are better in text.
I'm not sure how one would marry up such a presentation though.
This universal apps approach seems a new thing to me. I would suggest that its another buzz phrase invented by Microsoft to try to get everyone to work in the same way, which is no bad thing, but people who write software often work how they want to causing some parts of their software to work for us, and others not to.
Also things may be universal this year, but companies do tend to change the goalposts quite often as we know only too well.

Hi everyone,



As Windows 10 is being deployed around the world and universal apps are
becoming more prominent, I thought it would be best to produce an audio
overview of Windows 10 App Essentials add-on and to talk about what it takes
to write app modules for universal apps. So I'd like to receive feedback on
the following outline:



* Title: Dive into the world of Windows 10, UIA and universal apps

* Description: an audio tutorial providing essential information on
Windows 10, UI Automation (UIA) and what it takes to make universal apps
accessible and create app modules for them, using Windows 10 App Essentials
add-on as a blueprint.



Topics:

1. Windows 10 overview

2. What are universal apps and a brief overview of Universal Windows
Platform

3. A crash course on UI Automation

4. Your first app module for a UWP app

5. Scenario 1: wrong labels for controls

6. Scenario 2: locating objects

7. Scenario 3: Events and custom routines

8. Tips and recommendations to make universal apps accessible



The tutorial assumes:

1. Windows 10 versions 1511 and 1607 (I'll briefly cover version
1507).

2. Knowledge of NVDA, especially NVDA 2016 series.

3. Familiarity with object navigation.

4. Experience with creating app modules and/or working with UIA
controls are recommended.



Objectives:

1. Be able to explain the following terms: Windows 10, universal apps,
Universal Windows Platform, Windows Store, UI Automation, app module, object
navigation.

2. Learn to advocate for accessibility of universal apps.

3. Learn to navigate and use universal apps more effectively.

4. Learn to create app modules for universal apps (if desired).

5. Understand the impact of code changes and advocacy on accessibility
of a platform.



I'm also willing to host an online-based strategy meeting in October
regarding the above topics.



Thanks. Comments are appreciated.

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: two questions.

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

I have also seen the Windows Explore has stopped working as well, but from what I can gather both of these things happen in normal use by the sighted and hence my suspicion is that some other software is screwing it up. The worst case is when explorer goes without actually giving any warning resulting in silence. You cannot even reboot nvda as the shrotcuts on the desktop freeze as well. One then has two options. pressthe power button or go and make some tea and see if the fault protection decides to reboot explorer after some time. It can take minutes or just sit there.
Often reviewing the nvda log shows just frozen in stack errors during the silent times.


Funnily enough I've had less of this in 10 since I added a mod to use normal windows 7 menu bars, but that might just be a coincidence as the standard win 10 and nvda seems unable to tell you about updating installed reliably.

Windows 7 itself has these issues too, but as I do not use html 5 stuff much I'd not want to comment on if this is the issue.
In normal explorer the crash is normally due to one trying to be too fast with doing things.

Read online: https://www.fsf.org/blogs/community/happy-software-freedom-day-a-few-words-from-rms
Dear supporter,
Saturday, September 17th, 2016 is the thirteenth annual Software Freedom Day (SFD).
It's a great day to celebrate software freedom -- and to educate your friends and colleagues about the importance of free software. Richard Stallman, founder of the Free Software Foundation (FSF), has created a brief, informative video about why software freedom is important to all. Check it out, and share the video by posting about it on your blog, or microblog about the video with the hashtag #SFD (be sure to avoid nonfree software when you do). Thanks to free software community members Devin Ulibarri and Daniel Fitzmartin for editing this video.
There are more than 100 events planned for Software Freedom Day across the globe. Check out the map to find an event near you -- and if you're attending an SFD event, suggest that they show the video. Even if there isn't an event in your area, you can get inspired by exploring the resources on the Software Freedom Day website, as well as on the FSF and GNU Project websites.
Happy hacking,

I never get anything like that unless I type in a key word like "attach" and mine just said it found a key word. Now when I send this, it will ask if I want to send this now or did I forget to add an attachment. This is the only time I get anything after hitting the send message command. There may very well be a setting that will put it into drafts or send as you choose, but I don't know where that might be as I've never used it.

Re: two questions.

Gene
 

Try moving to the item you want to work with, then go into forms mode and experiment with the space bar, enter and the mouse commands you are trying.  When you go into forms mode use read current line once in forms mode to make sure you are in the right place.  If you aren't, try tabbing or shift tabbing, whichever is appropriate, and see if you can move to the item.  Then experiment.
 
I don't know anything about this issue.  If the issue is that browsers can work with these items but NVDA can't in some browsers, then turning off browse mode means that NVDA is not intercepting the commands.

Windows 10 App Essentials 16.09.2 released

 

Hi everyone, mostly for NVDA users,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials 16.09.2 is now available for download. Please read the release notes posted on the following site:

https://github.com/josephsl/wintenapps/releases/tag/16.09.2

 

Among other things, this version fixes a long standing issue where NVDA kept announcing gibberish when you talk to Cortana.

 

Note that you’ll need NVDA 2016.3 to use this add-on effectively, and this add-on will not install on Windows versions older than Windows 7 service pack 1 in consideration for those who would install this add-on prior to upgrading to Windows 10.

 

For new friends: Windows 10 App Essentials is an NVDA add-on that enhances support for Windows 10 controls and universal apps. Highlights of the add-on include ability to read text responses from Cortana, announcing progress of Windows Update, reading notifications from Microsoft Edge, reading forecast information in Weather, location beeps in Maps app and more.

 

As always, feedback is appreciated. Enjoy the new add-on release. Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Subject: [nvda] Non Adobe PDF Readers that are accessible?


Hello,
I'm looking for PDF readers and possibly writers that are
really accessible
with NVDA.
I know CutePDF has an amazing writer I always use, but has
anyone tried
their pro program?
I am looking mostly for reading, but would really like to know
of something
for writing and signing PDFs as well.
Does anyone know of any?
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs <http://brandonkeithbiggs.com/>







Re: Non Adobe PDF Readers that are accessible?

 

Hello,
I am looking for more advanced functionality with reading the PDF like filling out forms and signing.
I get a lot of protected documents that require me to read, fill out and sign and I can't do it very well with Adobe. Converting into word doesn't work either.
Thanks,

Re: Charts in Excel 2016

 

NVDA does support Office 2016. I'm using Office 2016 for some time now and NVDA worked fine, as far as Microsoft Word goes. I rarely used Excel, that is up until now.

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.
