Apparently, these settings cannot be changed when moving between profiles.
Eilana, both Gene and I have demonstrated that they can be. Me with manual profiles, and Gene with triggered profiles.
This is either user error, or something related to your system.

Please follow the steps I outlined where it worked perfectly for me, and report back your results.

Also, while I don't know of any add-on with the potential to interfere with this, try running with add-ons disabled just to check.

I hope that NVDA developers we'll implement these options in the near future
They are already implemented.

Andluke, I'm using the most latest version of NVDA 2021.3.5
No changes have been made to profiles or vision settings since 2020.4, so your copy should be able to do this.

If you wish, start NVDA with debug level logging enabled (on the quit/exit menu), and try to do what you have been trying to do. Then restart NVDA, and send me the file at %temp%\nvda-old.log, off list, and I'll take a look at what may be going on.

But please only do that after you have tried the things suggested above.

What is stated in the User Guide is:

You just need to install the USB drivers...

So, please remove the add-on not working restart NVDA and try again selecting the correct Seik entry on the Braille display selection list...

Re: Add-on for reporting clipboard announcements

 

I knew, and just checked, that Clipspeak was compatible with NVDA up through version 2021.1, but it appears to be "stuck" there, and I don't know why.  The dot level releases under a major release should be, in almost all cases, irrelevant.

I'm going to see if there is a GitHub page for Clipspeak and put in an issue.  This is one case where I strongly suspect a manifest update will be all that's needed.

Moderator's Note:   Initially I thought I'd not comment on this topic, but have decided I will.

1. This is a question about Gmail, not NVDA, and it is not specific to any screen reader.  That means it is not appropriate to the main NVDA group but is for the Chat Subgroup.  This is a reminder that members need to think about what it is that a given question deals with, and if that's not included in the following brief group description, it should be taken to the Chat Subgroup:

NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA) is screen reader software.  The central purpose of this group is discussing how to use NVDA.  This includes configuring NVDA's settings or familiarizing oneself with its modes and commands.  Discussions about which programs are accessible using NVDA, NVDA add-ons, NVDA tutorials and documentation, and configuring synthesizers or Braille displays for use with NVDA are also permitted.

2. Google has been saying, for a very long time, that it intends to phase out the basic HTML view.  They have put an inordinate amount of effort into making the standard view accessible, including creating a comprehensive set of shortcuts for doing so.  Read the writing on the wall and be proactive.  The fact that you may like basic HTML view better is going to be of no help on the day when it disappears.

3. The idea, in general, of "what I like best" being the first and foremost criteria in what one selects to use is just plain horrible when it's clear that something is in the process of going away or is already out of support.  Every computer user in existence, on multiple occasions, has had to let go of favorite things because their respective makers have dropped them.  It's a part of the territory, and there are very distinct dangers in using out-of-support software, and operating systems, web browsers, and email clients are at the top of the "potential dangers" list because of their contant contact with cyberspace [unless you have no internet connection, in which case web browsers and email clients cannot even be used].

This topic is now locked.

Re: This is useless! iTunes: wow what a mess!

This is why I now use chocolety. It does the same thing except you get way more apps and you can customize a batch file if you so chose to run and update stuff at start up etc. NVDA and I believe iTunes are in there as well plus some other goodies, and I mean probably a few hundred or more by now.

Yes, I looked and it is no longer there, so it isn't a question of an anomaly on your machine. 

But if you use the link that opens the Simple HTML view directly, you don't have to worry about the button.

Use this link and book mark it or however you quickly get to pages.
https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/h/%20-

It places you in the Simple HTML view.

If you were in the standard view and you shift tabbed enough with browse mode off, you would probably find the button, but I found when seeing if there is an efficient way to look for the button, that there isn't a reliable one.  You are likely to be placed a way down the page and you may have to shift tab fifteen or twenty times.  using the link I provided eliminates the need to find and use it.
