I don't recall if these two suggestions were made.  Have you tried using a portable version?  Also, have you tried another screen-reader using the same synthesizer?

Re: Sharing large files

The feature you are describing has been removed from Dropbox.  Now, it displays as file explorer with no choice in the program to use the other display.  If that is the problem the person is having, your instructions should help but since Dropbox automatically updates the person well may not have that feature any longer.

But I'd like to know what problem the person is having with Dropbox.  I can still use it to share files in exactly the same way as I did before.

Re: Sharing large files

Thanks, Luke,

Glad to hear that Dropbox still functions. I have mine for many years now and
ceased to use it for some time. I think I need to remove it and reinstall it
now that I have your reassurance that it is still usable.

I tried WeTransfer and found it excellent and fully accessible. I have noted
all of the steps that I took and would happily make these available to anyone
who wants them.

I will keep a note of the other services that you mention for future
reference.

All the best,

Why do you say that? I use Dropbox on a daily basis.
It is even installable, though with some difficulty, with the help of the
Dropbox add-on for NVDA.

That aside, iCloud works fine.

I know many blind people who use WeTransfer and SendTransfer.

Lastly there is box.com, which last I heard, will give you 10 GB of free
space, and from my, admittedly limited, uses of it, has appeared accessible.

There are others, including some new one with end to end encryption with keys
stored on your local machines, but I haven't tested that for accessibility
yet.
They bill themselves as the Signal of file transfer services.

Task bar disappears after closing portable nvda

farhan israk
 

I am using windows 10 21h2 and nvda 2021.3.5. I have noticed a strange issue. Suppose I have turned on portable copy to check that this copy is working properly or not after creating portable copy. I am going to visit my uncle's house tomorrow. So, I created a portable copy. If I exit the portable copy after confirming everything is working and turn on the standard or normal copy, the taskbar disappears. I neither can focus the task bar pressing windows + t nor pressing tab several times after focusing desktop. However, I have not verified by a sighted person. So, I cannot say strongly that it really disappears or nvda cannot focus on it. I have to restart windows explorer from the task manager to bring it back. I have noticed this strange issue two times.

Re: Reading and editing footers in Word with NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

I just tested on:

Windows 10 (64-bit) Version: 21H2 (2009), Build: 19044.1645
 
Office 365 (64-bit) Version: 16.0.15128.20140

And using either NVDA 2021.3.5, or NVDA 2022.1Beta4, everything works as expected with UIA enabled (2021.3.5) or set to "Always"  (2022.1beta4).

I can add or edit footers and read the text.

Which build of Office and version of NVDA are you using?

What version of NVDA do you have?

You said that the difference occurs when you turn UIA on or off. However, in the most recent versions of NVDA, there is an intermediate setting, which allows NVDA to use UIA only when necessary, and fallback to IAccessible otherwise.
That sounds like the setting you need here.

1. The new Windows volume mixer. Get to it through settings or by typing ms-settings:apps-volume into the Run dialog.

2. EarTrumpet.
Start it up, it shows up in the system tray. Hit enter on it, tab, arrow up/down through your apps, left/right adjusts, m mutes.
