Unfortunately you can't.  It seems like very obvious functionality though and I really wish they would add it.

A few days ago I submitted a ticket asking about exactly the same thing and they replied that they're working on it and that a new version should be out before the stable release of NVDA 2022.1.
Note this is the second time submitting a ticket about it; this time I chose the high priority. When I submitted a ticket first time I chose medium priority and got no response.
So...fingers cross for now and hope a new version of Codefactory is indeed released prior to the release of 2022.1 stable.

I am guessing, as Sarah has, that this is a question about how to port all existing email in an Outlook instance on one computer to another.

Per the group rules, and my frequent reminders about same, this question has nothing whatsoever to do with NVDA.  It should be addressed either on the Chat Subgroup, Microsoft Office Accessibility Discussion Group, or any one of a number of other more generally focused blind-centric tech groups, of which there are many.

Hi all,

Recently a number of add-ons were updated that require NVDA 2022.1, and these were approved for distribution on community add-ons website around 7:52 PM Pacific (UTC-7) on May 15, 2022. Around 1:11 AM on May 16th, I received a report from the add-ons list about compatibility messages with NVDA 2021.3.5 (the latest stable version as of time of this writing) and confirm that Add-on Updater was offering incompatible add-on updates to users. I have stopped Add-on Updater from offering add-on updates requiring NVDA 2022.1 around 1:36 AM Pacific.

While the update issue is resolved, I decided to inform you of what happened as Add-on Updater is my responsibility, and the described issue was part of a chain of events that led to folks experiencing confusion for a while. My sincerest apologies for this mishap.

P.S. A bigger factor: mental exhaustion due to me being a workaholic when it comes to everything NVDA. The events that led to the mishap described cannot be explained fully here, but what I can say is that as soon as graduate final exam is done this week and Windows App Essentials 22.06 is released next week, I’ll be looking for a great distraction from NVDA before I crash with mental exhaustion. This can partly explain why I’m not my usual self these days.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hello,

This question is partly related to NVDA and partly related to Windows PowerShell.


Supposed I have the following python script and stored in a python file
'test.py', which print out a new string of text after every second.


import time

for i in np.arange(10):

print('Sleeping', f"{str(round((i-1)/secs*100,
0)).removesuffix('.0')}%", end="\r", flush=True)

time.sleep(1)

1. I open Windows PowerShell

2. type python test.py

3. the script starts running

I am expecting that NVDA can automatically speak out the new string of
text, but in my test, after the first 'Spleeping...' was spoken, NVDA
did not speak the updated messages.


What can I do to make NVDA speak the updated messages? Thanks.

William

Yes and the slash is called a stroke.  Makes sence if you think about it.  It looks like the stroke of a pen. Interesting history of words etc. I love history of words, but then again I am a teacher for what ever that’s worth.

Apparently the "!" being called "bang" goes back to the 1950s and either comic books (which portrayed a speech bubble with ! in it coming out of a gun to signify it being fired, hence 'bang') - or typesetting manuals: https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/62918/why-is-the-exclamation-mark-called-a-bang.  I've never heard it used anywhere other than screen readers (not just NVDA).

 

I can't readily find a reference for the apostrophe being called tick.  In ASCII the grave accent is called the "back tick", and I assume that would have come from the same source.

 

I assume screen readers picked up those two names from the ascii and other similar references, but also because both are shorter to say than their more common names.  (Or at least more common here in Australia, I'm not sure whether either term is used - outside screen readers - to describe those symbols in other countries?

 

Fiddlesticks, I used my linguistic nerd quota in In-Process for the month last edition, maybe I can explore this in a future In-Process!

 

(Fiddlesticks of course from "Fiddle Sticks", the bows used to play violins, from the 15th century "fydylstyks").

 

Ok I'll stop now :)

When are they being read?

 

If I write:

Don't!

 

And up arrow onto that line, NVDA will read simply the word "don't", without articulating either the apostrophe or exclamation mark.

 

That happens with punctuation level set to none, some or most.  If I have punctuation level set to all then NVDA reads "don tick t bang".

 

If I right arrow through the word, then NVDA will always read "d o n tick t bang" regardless of the punctuation level

 

Given you worded them "apostrphe" and "exclamation" have you edited the "punctuation / symbol pronunciation" or dictionary?

 

In the punctuation / symbol pronunciation dialog, there are two entries for each.  Press the exclamation ! to jump to each of its entries.  Press apostrophe ' to jump to it's entry used when it is on its own.  The in-word apostrophe is three above the other one.  All four are set to symbol level "all" by default.
