Hi

Update on this topic,?? Cisco did some upgrades to improve the interface, and WebEx does work again with NVDA.

It seems that one of their corporate clients has a policy that all their new software solutions should be accessible.?? and Cisco fixed the problem.

Have others noticed the fix yet?

If you want both, it is about 150 or so. The nvda add on that includes the sapi and eloquence is $69. So the  add on is a better deal as you get both for half the cost.

I got Nimer’s permission to send this message regarding Eloquence.

 

There is a point worth considering when deciding between the add-on and the MSAPI version that hasn’t been discussed in the recent thread.  The add-on won’t work for brief times, ;perhaps once a year.  When there is a major upgrade of NVDA, it may become incompatible until it is updated.  I believe it has taken about four or five days in the past. 

 

If you use the MSAPI5 version, it will work with any version of NVDA so when there is a major update, this problem won’t occur. 

 

There may be other things to consider when deciding which one to get, such as responsiveness, but if things are pretty much equal between them, this is a point to consider when deciding which one to purchase.

I own the sapi5 eloquence from codeFactory and I also own the addon. I don't see any difference with responsiveness because they are both equally very responsive and fast. The sapi5 one is better because it just works with no addon required.

How can I tell if a cell is grayed out in Excel?

For a project, I need to go through a spreadsheet and bypass any cells
that are grayed out. How can NVDA (or Jaws) tell me if a cell is
grayed out?

Thanks in advance,

Hello,
If you buy the add-on version you get both eloquence and vocalizer. If you get the SAPI version you only get one or the other but not both.

Hi, Gene,


I remember seeing that about eloquence on the atguys website. It's good to know that if there's an update to NVDA that the sapi 5 version will still work.

Ibrahim,

         I hate at this point to be "bringing down the hammer" but it is necessary.  Absolutely nothing you have asked about is related to NVDA in any way.  These are questions specific to Microsoft Edge under Windows 10.  Thus, if they are to remain in "the NVDA Group Sphere" you should be posting them on the Chat Subgroup.  A better option would be to ask these questions on the Windows Access for Screen Reader Users group.  Addresses for both of those options follow.  This topic will be locked immediately after I post this, as it is not NVDA-related in any meaningful way.

Ibrahim Ajayi
 

Hello:
I'm still setting up my computer with windows10.
The problem now has o do with my favorites. I did import favorites from a HTML file bookmarks from a HTML file in to favorites, but they can't bee found. I can't findthem in the favorites bar, and I can't find them on my Android phone, despite th fact that sync is turned on.
So, please, what have I done wrongly, andwht am I surposed to do to get the bookmarks in to the favorites. I imported this same bookmarks in to firefox.
Please note that i copied the bookmarks by activating the favorites settings, and then activating the import and export options. I did activate the import from file option to copy the file.
Hope my issue is very well understood.
Regards.
Ibrahim.
