Re: Using Outlook with NVDA

Gene
 

I don’t know how you will find moving in this way but move by paragraph is control down arrow.  You can see if that skips blank lines and moves you to the next paragraph.  And blank lines or not, moving by paragraph is a good way to skim. 
 
As far as crashes are concerned, have you tested Outlook with another screen-reader enough to know if some sort of interaction between NVDA and Outlook is causing the crashes? 
 
If NVDA appears to be involved, sending the NVDA log to someone may help solve the problem.  If it isn’t involved, you may be able to send a Windows log to someone.

Subject: [nvda] Using Outlook with NVDA
 

I have 2 questions for others who use Microsoft Outlook with NVDA.

 

1.       My Outlook crashes a lot. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it several times. I suspect it’s the interaction with NVDA that makes this happen. Does anyone else have this experience? I use Office 2016 downloaded from the Office 365 site from my work.

2.       Often times when I’m reading emails with any particular formatting that came from an email platform, I have tons of blank lines. It can interfere with my understanding newsletter-type emails, especially since I can’t get everyone to put in the heading level and list formats I’d like. <;)> It also makes it harder to skim through emails for the couple of things I might find over the span of 3 or 4 emails.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can improve my NVDA/Outlook experience? I’ve briefly tested with JAWS, and JAWS is much better at ignoring the blank lines. However, I don’t own or particularly want to use JAWS.

Thanks,

Amelia

Re: New and apparent lag with NVDA in File Explorer, and an Introducion

Well not sure what OS your running. But if you select more than one file no mater what type it will open all selected.

I selected 3 txt and 3 mp3's and 3 exicutables and got 9 extra windows open up.

That is windows default action.

Re: MP3 Direct Cut--Splitting Files

Gene
 

If I want to edit by time, I check the time.  I don’t know which screen-reader you are using but you can check the time as you move.  It would be more convenient if scripts are available that allow you to check the time with a command but you can do so with the JAWS cursor or with screen review in NVDA.
 
I’ll describe how if you want.
 
To do what I described in my last message, place the start marker where you want it.  The command is the letter b.  You can place it at the very beginning of the file.  If you open a file and type b, the marker is set at the very beginning. 
Play or move through the file until the place where you want to set the end marker. 
Do so with the letter n.
Then save the selected content.  The selected content is between the two markers.
Use control e to open the save selected dialog.
Type a name and press enter.
The content will be saved.
Then delete what you have selected from the file you are working with.  Press delete.
If you want to set the start marker where you are, press b again.
Follow the same procedure until you have saved all the segments of the file.

If it’s ok to post it here, however, here it goes: if you use any kind of OCR solution that can open and OCR PDFS and acquire images from scanners, what would you recommend for efficient use with NvDA?

 

If that OCR had the ability to keep the formatting and layout of the document, that would be a much needed extra.

I know PDF XChange Viewer is a free package with decent OCR capabilities and it can OCR PDF documents. If you're OCRing an image file like a .jpg, then I don't know.

Re: Check out this new video to find out how to use the NVDA find dialog in PDF

benmoxey@...
 

Hi Jin

 

You can use the NVDA find commands in any application that supports Browse mode. You can even use them to search through a Word document if you prefer them to the standard Word commands. The important thing to remember is that Browse mode must be on. You can toggle Browse mode on and off wherever its supported by pressing the NVDA key + Space. Note that Browse mode is on by default when you load a PDF in Adobe Reader DC or a web browser, unless you’ve changed this option in NVDA’s settings.

 

All the best.

 

Ben

Re: Weird Abbreviation Processing Mid-word?

Gene
 

I hadn’t realized it, but the setting I was talking about is the same setting as you are discussing.  It isn’t the one that was originally discussed and I mistakenly thought it was.
 
The inapplicable setting I was discussing is in the SAPI 5 version.  It may be in NVDA in that version as well.  If you are using the add-on, it is probably in NVDA but I don’t know if there are separate settings for SAPI or if they are only in the voice settings dialog..

When I also have this problem is w/heading numbers, as in

It'll read
March 3 ketting
because it's translating the heading number into a date format, I guess.

Truly annoying.

Re: NVDA and emoji keyboard #addonrelease

 

Hi,

At least it does work with Microsoft Edge 94 - when I open mobile Facebook website to write a comment or reply to a message, and then press Windows+Period to open emoji panel and navigate it then press Enter on an emoji, the selected emoji is entered. NVDA also announces selected emojis as I navigate through the emoji panel.

Does this problem happen with Narrator, too? If not, tyhat's something we may need to look into - please ping me next Monday if you still need my assistance (I'm out of action this week in NVDA world due to graduate school midterm this week).

Cheers,

Topic locked.  Any further discussion should occur on the Chat Subgroup.  We're not here for metadiscussion of charitable motives, and I thought I'd made that more than abundantly clear.

If someone has a definitive answer as to an organization in the USA that has tax deductible status that supports NVDA, please send that to the Owner Address and it will be conveyed.

Otherwise, this discussion is done.
