Re: NVDA menu

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


The easiest way if it is on the about button is when you open it in my case I use object navigation.


It will read out the information and you can not interact with it so I do the following


I am using a desk top after it has read out the information I use object navigation in this case it is the nvda key+ number 8 on the numeric keypad. It takes me up a level to where the information is.


Then I can use the number 7 on the numeric keypad to take me up to the top line which is previous line to I get to top.


I can use the number 9 on the numeric key pad to read down a line


4 will do previous word and 6 next word.


1 is previous character and 3 is next character.


8 is current line, 5 is the word you are on and 2 is the character you are on.


Depending how you read it I might read the whole lot then do it word by word say for example.


You might have to look up the command to go up a level in object navigation if using a lap top.


hope it helps.

Re: NVDA menu

 

I honestly don't have the answer to your direct question, but since you say the information you need is near the very end of what NVDA is announcing, could you not snag it from what NVDA just said?

I cannot recall whether this is an NVDA feature, or an add-on, but I am positive that it has been mentioned on many occasions that there is a way to snag the last sentence (or maybe somewhat more) that NVDA just finished saying.

This message is not being sent secondary to any incident, but because it's useful information to have regardless of whether an internet forum or e-mail list is involved.  Much of what it contains used to be "common knowledge" but in recent years its communication "down the generations" seems to be getting lost.  It's too valuable for that to happen.

25 Forum Posting Etiquette Tips

The article above was originally posted all the way back in 2007, which is eons ago in the computer age.  It has withstood the test of time, with the exception of recommending against using HTML formatted messages, as these have become a de facto standard since. 

One addition to that list should be:  Please, when you send a message asking for assistance and find the answer yourself prior to someone else having managed to do so, don’t post something like, “It’s OK, I fixed it.”  It's rude to leave the readership hanging  once you've determined a solution. If you were looking for how to fix it, later searchers will also be looking for that answer.  Since you know how, add the, “and here’s how,” part afterward.  Many will bless you, even though you don’t know they do.

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

 

Hi,

Between a week to up to a year:

  • A week or two: if Microsoft found no issues with the build sent to beta and release preview Insiders (22000.28x)
  • Several weeks to months: if a fix is being tested by dev channel Insiders in build 22400 series, and if so, it will take a while for fixes to be backported and test by beta and release preview Insiders
  • Up to a year: if it is so major that it must wait until the next big Windows 11 update (next year)

I won't go into all the work that goes on inside Microsoft to make a fix available to everyone (as it is a bit technical and beyond the scope of this forum), but suffice to say that it involves testing a fix with more people in each stage: first with Windows developers themselves in combination with automated tests run by machines, then to Windows Insiders on dev channel and Microsoft employees, then to Insiders on beta and release preview and more Microsoft staff, then finally to everyone.

Cheers,

Joseph


Does Avaya phone system work well with NVDA and Jaws?

Saylor Cooper
 

Hello NVDA users,

I am reaching out because I have a question about accessibility with the Avaya Softphone system. I will begin certification for a client who I will work with on the liveops platform where I will use Avaya for the phone system and therefore I’m wondering if it is accessible with NVDA and Jaws? I will also be connecting to the client using the horizon VMWare virtual desktop and therefore wondering if NVDA works with that as well? Thanks.

Thanks Joseph for the update. Based on your experience, can you think
of roughly when it might hit the stable version?

Hi,

In a way, yes in that Windows App Essentials comes with support for features
introduced in Insider Preview builds. For instance, the latest dev build of
the add-on includes a fix to deal with IME (input method editor) screen in
both Windows 11 Version 21H2 (build 22000) and Insider Preview build 22478
where NVDA may announce candidate items twice (caused by two different
events coming from candidate items). Insider Preview is the reason why I am
holding onto this add-on and its development despite plans to let go of my
other add-ons to focus on other things in life; but I do foresee a future
without Windows App Essentials add-on, but that is at least years away (I'm
sure folks will contribute to the add-on despite me not taking an active
role in NVDA Community anymore as I'm prioritizing earning a master's
degree).

By the way, I need to clarify that the fix for File Explorer lag is actually
being tested inside dev channel builds, not in 22000.28x as I initially
thought (apologies).

Cheers,

Joseph






NVDA: Linespacing and Paragraph Indent Word 2019

David Russell
 

Hello,
First, a big thanks to Quentin for answering my questions about
methodology to perform line spacing and paragraph indent. I noted your
instructive.
I have one further question on the portion where you discuss how to
hear measurement.
Will this also inform of extraneous text inserting itself into a given document?
I write fiction, and have used the capital-eight (star) to indicate
scene breaks.
I was told this added either underscores or a series of ... to text,
and my sighted partner was able to delete the unwanted.
I had not heard NVDA report these findings.
Thanks again. I receive the Digest so will look for an answer in the next issue.

Hello there,

 

Josef, thanks for the answer to both questions.

 

I gather that the Windows App Essentials addon does a lot of work to make nvda work on insider builds?

Best regards.

Francisco.

Hi,

These improvements will show up to non-Insiders soon. Typically Insiders on different channels will test latest code from:

  • Dev channel: latest code that passed tests inside Microsoft
  • Beta and release preview channels: latest code for the current Windows release

Build 22000.28x is the build being tested by Windows Insiders on beta and release preview channels, and it includes fixes for File Explorer. People on dev channel have already moved onto build 22400 series.

As for a possibly related question about NVDA supporting Windows Insider Preview builds: without going into details, yes, NVDA does support Insider Preview builds to some extent.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: NVDA: Linespacing and Paragraph Indent Word 2019

Quentin Christensen
 

You did hide your questions in there :)

Ok, the two I found:
1) Can you press control+number to change line spacing?  Yes, and NVDA will report Single Line Spacing (CONTROL+1), Double line spacing (control+2) or 1.5 line spacing (control+5).

2) Indenting the first line of a paragraph.  I actually wrote a bit about this the other week when covering how NVDA 2021.2 now better reports line indent in Word:  https://www.nvaccess.org/post/in-process-29th-september-2021/#indent  Basically, the way I do it: CONTROL+M to indent the whole paragraph and then control+shift+t to decrease the hanging indent (the indent of every line except the first).

Like any formatting option, once set, it will carry over to any subsequent typing from that point on.  To have it happen automatically, you would need to edit your normal.dotm template and add it to that.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hello Group,

I am pasting the online instructions offered by Microsoft Support for
screen reader users as it pertains to doing line spacing and first
line indentation for MS Word, 2019 version.
I will define my confusion as you read:
Set line spacing
1.
In your document, select the paragraph whose line spacing you want to
format. If you want to set the line spacing for the entire document,
press Ctrl+A to select all its content.
2.
To set line spacing options for a paragraph, press Alt+H, K. You hear:
"Line and paragraph spacing." Use the Up and Down arrow keys to select
from a list of frequently used line spacing sizes, and press Enter to
apply it.
Question: Is this advising, Line spacing can occur when one selects an
entire document, control-a, then press alt h, and k, and up or down
arrow for desired spacing.
Will the old method of control plus  number value also work anymore?

2. Set first line indent
With a first line indent, the first line of a paragraph is indented
more than the other lines in the paragraph.
To add a first line indent to the paragraph, move the focus to the
beginning of the first line of the paragraph, and press the Tab key.
Question: Is the focus the same as the cursor key?
How do I indent the first line of a paragraph for an entire document
and subsequent documents?
 older versions of Word, wasn't use of the tab key for indenting
discouraged. What makes it acceptable practice now?

Thanks for your help with this issue!
