Sure!

Don't take into account the fact that the pade is in Italian; the point is that it keeps refreshing, and you can see that very easily.

*Subject:* [nvda] NVDA and Carousel

Hello all,

Is there a way of blocking/removing Carousel from web pages with NVDA?

My son helped me get rid of it on an online supermarket, but he tells me
he did it via Adblock, and wouldn't know how to make me do it in an
accessible way.

This constant refresh of web pages is really annoying. I know I
mentioned this before, but I didn't know that the problem is caused by
Carousel...

If anyone has any suggestions, they'll be very welcome.
Thanks a lot.
Ciao,
Ollie

Hi Marion

Use the NVDA key and the letter U to toggle between off, beeps and
percentages.
I tried it in the program you mentioned and it works.

Hello there,

Adobe is free, I think, but it's much too bulky.
Sumatra is very lightweight, and it reads a lot of other formats as well as pdf - epub, mobi, chm amongst others, but we can't benefit from that, because it isn't accessible.

Dear Group

I recently downloaded the OCR add-on and tried to use it on a PDF
file. It works well, but it only selects one letter when I press
NVDA+F9 and it only copies one letter at a time. How does one select
the whole document when the OCR is complete?

Could you also, perhaps, send me a list of shortcuts for the OCR or a
place where I can find them.

Please note that I use the newest Adobe Reader.

Thank you in advance.

I am afraid not. The strange thing is that I can edit in cells in Excel 201 and 2016 but not in Excel 2010. Are you running 32 or 64 bit windows? If 32 bit, try Excel 2010 on a machine running 64bit windows. I find editing in cells works.

Hi Chris,

 

I have experienced your issues with editing formulas in cells on my work laptop which is running windows 7 32bit and office 2013. However, I am on windows 10 on a 64 bit machine running excel 2016 and do not have this problem. I had similar experiences with windows 7 64bit that is, I was able to edit text in cells directly.

 

Try making the following changes.

1.       From the advanced tab, disable allow editing directly in cells.

2.       Disable hardware graphics acceleration  again in the advanced tab.

Hi

Has anyone encountered problems using MS Excel, in particular when using the VBA editor to write macros (I am using Windows 7), Office 2007.  NVDA occasionally announces ‘blank’ where there are letters (this occurs mainly wen the letter follows an open bracket)  and may also miss out entire lines of code when moving around using the arrow keys.  This behaviour also occurs after pressing F2 to display a formula.  Using the Tools/Options dialog,to configure the VBA editor,   I have set font to Courier New Western and pointsize to 10  but NVDA announces it as Ariel 8 point.    

 

Does anyone know of any work arounds or NVDA parameters I can use to prevent this behaviour from occurring?

 

Cheers

Chris
