Re: Slow response in Microsoft Word

I wouldn't know how to do that. What would it prove? And do you mean there's a safe mode for the program or that I have to start the whole computer in safe mode? Because I have zero idea on how to do that either...

Just tested with the beta, and it's a bit faster, but not as responsive as I'm accustomed to from most other apps. The only other app that lags like this is Thunderbird, though admittedly that lag is worse than word's. It's probably partly that I'm tabbing manually through the ribbon instead of using keyboard shortcuts. I've forgotten how to do most of the things I'll want to do with shortcuts but I can google those.

Self-Produced AudioBook with NVDA

David Russell
 

Hello NVDA,

Thank you everyone for your responses on the feasibility of using NVDA
to self-produce an audio book. Human narrator sounds like the majority
opinion.
Thanks to the author who also shared of his experience in
self-producing an audio book for vision-impaired readers. I would use
the general public as my audience, but know unless one is established,
sales will likely be modest.
I may self-publish and let the eBook - rather than audio book, be the
medium for my authored story collection. If readers are sighted or
blind, their choice of means to read will be theirs alone.
Here in the U.S., my research indicates professional narration can
range from $100.00 USD to $400.00 per hour, USD, U.S. Dollars.

Thus, it seems more practical from an economic standpoint to choose
the non-audio path to publication. So be it. Thanks!

--
David C. Russell, Author


Re: thunderbird issue

Blake Roberts <BEarlRoberts@...>
 

Hi,
The solution is to use the NVDA add-on Mozilla Apps Enhancements. You can download it here:
https://nvda-addons.org/addon.php?id=5
After installing the add-on, do the following.
1. Open Thunderbird.
2. Press NVDAKey+h. A list of columns should come up.
3. Find the item labeled "junk status".
4. Tab to the "down" button.
5. Move the junk column down a few times. I myself move the junk column to the next to last column, causing 0 to be spoken before the date field. The 0 announcement is much less annoying there.

I suggest joining the Thunderbird group for any additional TB questions which you might have. It is primarily intended for screen reader users. Link to Thunderbird group:
https://groups.io/g/thunderbird
Relevant email addresses such as how to subscribe are located at the groups.io link which I provided above.

Re: Failing to read document with Adobe Acrobat DC and NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

I'm not sure what the specific issue here is, but in response to the comment about Adobe Reader DC 64 not being accessible, I am using:

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Continuous Release Version 2021.007.20099 64-bit

And I can read accessible PDF files with NVDA 2021.3 beta 2  (I didn't try 2021.2 just now, but I was using it until we released the first beta and I didn't notice an issue).

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: say all not scrolling in word 365

This issue should be fixed in the latest beta of NVDA 2021.3. Just ensure that UIA support for Word in enabled in NVDA's Advanced options.

Subject: [nvda] say all not scrolling in word 365

Hello.

I had the believe that Microsoft Word 365 was to move the cursor along when using say all so that when control is pressed, the cursor should be at least at the line where speech stops.

But this is not happening. The cursor will not move with the speech, and will remain at the starting point of say all.

So if I start say all (NVDA +down arrow) desktop at the top of the document, I may be two pages down when I stop speech, and the cursor is still at the top of the document.

This makes editing incredibly tedious and conversom.


I am running the latest update to word 365, and NVDA 21.2

Also, focus moves navigator object is on, and carot moves review cursor is on as well.

This is only happening in word, and not in other editors or browsers.

Why is the cursor not following?


Thanks,


D C

Hi, Speech synthesizers are a really individual thing, and what one person likes is not something others will like. If you're looking for the best eSpeak variant for yourself, just browse through the list and see what suits you best. Hope this helps.

UIA is mainly only effective for office 365, I think for older office versions it's less critical.
