Hello and good evening,
I read your messages above and I have a sollution to try.
Open your start manue, type notifications and at the bottom or in the results bar you will find a setting named notifications and actions. Click there and by pressing tab you will precure options of notifications for all the apps, find the setting of one drive or any other related to that and turn it off. 

Hope it helps,

With best regards,
Krit Kumar

Hi,


I use one drive for some of my cloud storage.  I have recently started receiving notifications about using Office 365.  I can't figure out how to get to those notifications so I can hopefully turn these notifications off.  Can anyone tell me how to get to the notifications using NVDA?

Shift f10 is for opening the context menu.  I'm talking about context sensitive help.

I remember shift plus f1 when I was younger, about 20 years ago for contextual sensitive help as well. So no shift f1 depending on the program can be accurate as well as f1.

I don't know if anyone is reading this thread who doesn't know what is being discussed.  I'll briefly explain it.

In Word, NVDA space places you in browse mode.  W moves you to the next misspelled word.  You can hear the word in context by reading the current line. 

When you are finished in browse mode, NVDA space turns browse mode off and you can work directly with the document, such as edit it, just as before.

Correct, but in reality, I cannot do any correction without first reading the whole sentence, cause sometimes the spelling errors suggested by word is not correct.

NVDA repeating every Chinese character twice in Windows PowerShell

William
 

Hello all,

1. Open Windows PowerShell

2. Run the following python script: print('測試用文字')

3. When you press Enter, the first time nvda will say '測試用文字'

4. But if I use review cursor to go back to that line of text, NVDA will say ''測測試試用用文文字字' which repeating every character twice.


I am testing this with NVDA 2022.1 RC1, without installing any addon

windows 10 home ed 21h2


I try doing the same thing in Windows terminal preview, but the Chinese characters are correctly reported.


Here I attach the respective debug log for your reference.


Thanks.

You can eliminate this announcement in the following way:
Open the document formatting dialog using the command control NVDA d.  That is, hold control and the NVDA key and type d while doing so.
Tab through the items and you will eventually get to block quotes.  It is a check box.  Uncheck it with the space bar, then press enter.

Re: Question Regarding Browse setting

The commands aren't defined in Input Help.  However, the difference in behavior may depend on whether  Windows 7 or Windows 10 or 11 is being used. 

In Windows 7, at least on my machine, what I said is the case.  In Windows 10, both f1 and shift f1 do the same thing, in other words they both bring up context sensitive help.

I wouldn't think the version of Windows would make any difference but it seems to.

That is not the normal experience. Check your keyboard layout against NVDA input help. F1 is supposed to work alone for this, although if your browser remembers where you were last reading in the manual, it may not work so well.

I don't think it is generally known.  I don't recall seeing it discussed here before.

Perhaps I shouldn't have recommended it. It is apparently an undocumented feature, and does not work in every possible place within NVDA currently. It does work in most or all of the settings panels though, and is worth trying if you can't remember what something does.

Now that I know that context sensitive help is available, there may be times I refer people to it.  I don't think it is generally known.  I don't recall seeing it discussed here before.
