Hi,
what process exactly are you describing by floating the cursor over something?

Forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask but Are there any issues getting NVDA to work with teams?



My preferred method of using NVDA is to float the cursor over the text that I want to read. This works fine on websites and most other programs I use but doesn’t seem to be working in teams. Any ideas and if there is a better place for me to ask this question I’m happy to hear it.



Thanks

Scott

Well pick a version of TB and screen reader it never stopped. Its less lag with TB 78 then 91, but still there.

And I killed all add ons, even removed them all still same with NVDA.

Guess screen readers just don't like email.

For anyone having these issues, Brian has some good sheets on bug reporting, but in general, what really helps track things like this down is:

- Details about your system, especially the version / build of Windows, Office (or other involved program) and NVDA.  Please don't say "the latest version".  There are many reasons why the "latest version" you have (particularly of Windows or Office) might be different to the "latest version" I can get.

- Steps to reproduce.  If you can tell me, 1. Press this, 2. Do that, 3. Press this other keystroke, and I can replicate it, we should be able to get everything else we need (but details of program versions are still useful as that way we can ascertain if something ONLY affects one version of a program or multiple).

- If you can, your NVDA log, and ideally if you can set it to debug level, restart NVDA with add-ons disabled, reproduce the issue, THEN get the log and send it to us.

Happy to elaborate on any of those steps as needed.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Wally,

 

I was interested you seemed to be having similar problems to mine but they are clearly not identical. I still think, for me at least, they are most likely to be connected with my system.

 

I forgot to say in the first message that I use Word 2007 with Windows 10, all updates included. I rarely have problems with NVDA disappearing while I type and Windows Explorer behaves as it should for me.

 

Best wishes

Hi Robert

 

You are quite right, it is confusing.

 

The worse of it, with me, it even lags in Windows explorer.

 

It needs to be attended to as urgently as possible.

You do know that is a problem? You shouldn't have to use the control key to move in that view.

Also so far its not a problem for all.

If you hold control and move up and down the list in Windows Explorer, now called File Explorer, you won’t have the lag problem.  Once you get to the file or folder you want, stop, then up and down arrow back to it so it and only it will be selected.

Re: acapela for nvda not compatible

Blake Roberts <BEarlRoberts@...>
 

Acapela TTS for NVDA version 1.7 is compatible with NVDA 2021.2, just as it was with NVDA version 2021.1. I know this to be a fact as owner of a product license for years. I keeps the Acapela for NVDA product up-to-date on my system. Version 1.5 is for older versions of "NVDA 2019.2 and lower" to quote the Acapela for NVDA download page. Version 1.7 is for "NVDA 2019.3 +". Therefore, downloading/installing version 1.7 should be problem-free.
According to this blogp ost on the Acapelafor NVDA web site:
http://www.acapela-nvda.com/blog/2021/06/14/release-of-acapela-tts-voices-for-nvda-1-7/
Acapela for NVDA 1.7 was released in June of this year to be compatible with NVDA 2021.1 and above. Make sure you are downloading version 1.7, not the antiquated 1.5 version of the add-on. After successful installation of the add-on, it is then necessary to download the Acapela voices of your choice for use with the product.

I haven’t used the add-on.  I looked at the page where the download link is offered and there is a long explanation of how to use it.  I don’t know if it will answer your questions but have you read it?  It is just a little below the download link.

I downloaded and installed an NVDA add-on called QuickNotetaker. Now
it's in there and I don't know how to access it.  How or where can I
read the instructions?

Thank you.

Hi everyone,

 

Today, we're sharing Jacques' story from South Africa. It highlights the security of NVDA, and the importance of Open Source software in business. Plus, what is the difference between a digital signature & a digital certificate? Find out here: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/open-source-opens-the-way/ #OpenSource
