Joseph, thank you and who all helps you with the ad-ons for your work.


I also want to say that if the clock ad-on is ever fixed that will be great. When it is now silent when the cukoo clock used to go off I feel like something is  missing.


Thanks to everyone who adds so much to this screen reader.

Hi,

There should be an ew release of Woprd Nav.

Several updates to the compatibility list:

  • As of May 26, 2022, about 73% of add-ons are showing as compatible from add-on compatibility page (see the below link). This includes add-ons under testing (that is, queued for distribution on community add-ons website).
  • Braile Extender is now compatible with NVDA 2022.1 (latest stable version released last week).

Re: scheduling a recurring Zoom meeting with NVDA

Sarah k Alawami
 

I remember doing this via the zoom app itself, but that was in 2020 when I organized a reading group for my local neighborhood for the children. I would have to look back at how I did this.

Not sure if this is much help, but I've done this before by using the
zoom-> google calendar integration. It's possible to configure events
(meetings) the same way you do any other event if you link Google Calendar with your zoom account. I think it's also possible by linking Outlook as well.

Hi all,
Does anyone know how to schedule a recurring Zoom meeting using NVDA?
I can check the box that says that the meeting is a recurring meeting,
but then Zoom says "this is a recurring meeting, meet anytime." I'm
looking for a solution where I can keep the same meeting link every
month, but also have the meeting date and time show up in the invite.
I know this can be done, as a friend of mine runs a meeting at the
same time on the first Saturday of the month, and the invite shows a
series of dates. She has some vision and also has JAWS installed, so
can't help me all that much. Apparently, after checking the recurring
meeting box in JAWS, a time picker shows up. Does anyone have any
experience with this in NVDA?
Thanks,

Hi Quentin

Thanks for your input.

The keyboard shortcut to switch languages is either WINDOWS+SPACEBAR or

For the notification area icon, I think it is the "Language bar" option in
Windows settings (press windows, type "language bar" and find the system

I don't switch languages much myself so I'm not as familiar with it as
others here likely are. I'm sure someone will chime in if I'm wrong!

Kind regards

I often se, if I may call it that way, a tray of languages in the win

If it is gone, where has it gone?

How do I bring it back?

Or is there a keyboard command to switch languages?

Please help.

Re: dynamic content in the windows sound mixer.

Jason Bratcher
 

Yes.
Also, if it's a removable soud card
(i.e. anything bluetooth/HDMI/USB,
Do Not UnPair/Disconnect It!
Best case:
Windows assumes a default built-in device and plays the sound straight away.
Worst case:
No sound plays at all and you have to come back here to pick a device again while the app is playing audio.

Re: windows 10 app esentials add-on

 

Hi all,

Okay, a few things:

  1. Windows Mail and Calendar: the issues described by Rosemarie and Arlene are two completely different issues. Rosemarie's issue concerns reading emails, whereas Arlene's case has to do with data corruption.
  2. Windows App Essentials and fixing the original issue reported: I doubt the add-on can resolve this as it has to do with message data and how NVDA decides to perform a say all when a message opens.
  3. Ap maintenance: although not mentioned throughout this thread, Mail and Calendar app is sort of in maintenance mode as Microsoft is planning to replace this app with something completely different (won't go into that as this is more toward WinAccess forum territory). The only thing Windows App Essentials add-on provides is table navigation commands to let you review Mail message headers from mail items list, but that feature might be gone in a future add-on release (likely end of this year or early next year).
  4. Accessing Gmail from older email clients: the reason why you cannot access Gmail from say, Outlook 2013 is due to changes from Google regarding email access authentication. Google now wants you to set up a specific password for use by apps themselves, and older clients may not support this properly.
  5. Add-on name: almost a year ago, we did have an add-on named "Windows 10 App Essentials". But that changed when an operating system called Windows 11 made its debut, so the add-on was renamed to "Windows App Essentials". Living up to that name, the add-on provides support for additional Windows 10/11 controls and apps, and is also used as a staging ground for pull requests from yours truly if it has anything to do with Windows 10, 11, and modern apps and controls. The latest iteration of that line of work deals with letting mouse and touch users navigate and interact with Windows 11 Taskbar elements without hearing "DesktopWindowXamlSource", and yes, that was the one, along with a follow-up, that gave me an inspiration to take a break in June (vacation officially starts on May 31, 2022, the day after United States Memorial Day).

Hope this clarifies a lot.

Cheers,

Joseph

In the NVDA tools menu, hit the add-ons manager, and select "get add-ons".
Search for it on the page that opens.

Or just go directly to https://addons.nvda-project.org. Which has been mentioned several times in this thread and other threads going on currently.

Hold down the shift key and hit f ten.  Arrow to where you will hear any screen reader say more. You’ll see things like uninstall and other things I can’t remember. But hit enter where you hear more.

Go back to settings witch you’d do this by  holding down the windows key. Hit I. Then go to apps and features. If you don’t see the mail app. In that place go to Microsoft store.  In there, type in the search field “mail calendar” Once you see that. Get it. Once that’s done. Go to mail and add your account.  If you use gmail witch I do.  You will be warned that you are allowing windows to get your messages from gmail site you can delete them in the mail app and other stuff.  You have to allow it.  You type in your gmail address and password  and your name. Then once that’s done you’re good to go.

It doesn't sound to me as though Rosemary is having the same problem.  Rosemary only said her mail isn't automatically being read aloud in all cases, indicating that it is being downloaded but that some messages need to be manually read.

You can get Outlook 2013 to work with it if you use an application specific password from Google. 

Whatever you do, you may want to check to see if messages are being deleted from the server when you delete them using Windows Mail.  I am not saying my experience is typical or represents others' experiences, but using GMail, when I delete a message using Windows Mail, it remains on the server, I believe in the inbox.

It is accessible, but its a very simple program.  If you do any more than things such as send and receive mail, such as use message rules, the program isn't able to do them.

, for some strange reason the mail app became badly corrupt.  If this happens to anybody. You go to the start menue, find your mail app. Do not open it. Hold down the shift key and hit f ten.  Arrow to where you will hear any screen reader say more. You’ll see things like uninstall and other things I can’t remember. But hit enter where you hear more. After that. You’ll hear something like unpin from start menue. Move to settings.  You’ll see something like mail on calendar onn etc.  Tab until you see reset.  After that. Go back to settings witch you’d do this by  holding down the windows key. Hit I. Then go to apps and features. If you don’t see the mail app. In that place go to Microsoft store.  In there, type in the search field “mail calendar” Once you see that. Get it. Once that’s done. Go to mail and add your account.  If you use gmail witch I do.  You will be warned that you are allowing windows to get your messages from gmail site you can delete them in the mail app and other stuff.  You have to allow it.  You type in your gmail address and password  and your name. Then once that’s done you’re good to go.

So you are talking about the Windows Mail app itself.  I couldn't tell what you had done.

It doesn't sound to me as though Rosemary is having the same problem.  Rosemary only said her mail isn't automatically being read aloud in all cases, indicating that it is being downloaded but that some messages need to be manually read.

You can read about it and download it here:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/wintenApps.en.html

You can get Outlook 2013 to work with it if you use an application specific password from Google. 

Whatever you do, you may want to check to see if messages are being deleted from the server when you delete them using Windows Mail.  I am not saying my experience is typical or represents others' experiences, but using GMail, when I delete a message using Windows Mail, it remains on the server, I believe in the inbox.

Hi list! I got my windows ten app to finally work!  I had to get the windows app from the Microsoft store.  I had to read the account. I had to allow it since I’m using gmail.  Usually I get a friend to fix these things for me. But I did it myself! Woo hoo.  I went on google / start page to read how to fix the windows ten app. And I did it! I followed the instructions to the t!

You can read about it and download it here:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/wintenApps.en.html

You can get Outlook 2013 to work with it if you use an application specific password from Google. 

Whatever you do, you may want to check to see if messages are being deleted from the server when you delete them using Windows Mail.  I am not saying my experience is typical or represents others' experiences, but using GMail, when I delete a message using Windows Mail, it remains on the server, I believe in the inbox.

Hi, everyone,

 

I’m now using the mail app because outlook 2013 is no longer working with my gmail account. Where do I get the new version of windows 10 app esentials? I think I might need it for the mail app which I’m now using. I can read some messages in the mail app but not others. This add-on might be helpful.

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

Thanks. I even went to the addons page and got the addon for windows ten mail.  For some strange reason the windows ten app became corrupt I could not open it. I had to go to the google site to read my mail. I went to the start menue, I did the applications key to move the app to settings. Then I reset the app and I had to redownload it from the Microsoft store. Then I signed up and put gmail on it. When I had Microsoft word ten witch used outlook it doesn’t work for windows ten. Before I quit using outlook. For some strange reason I had to go to google to allow outlook to use gmail.  Just like rosemary she’s having that same problem. You have to keep allowing it just to do gmail. That’s the same with this windows ten ap. I had to allow it. When I did all this. I used Jaws.  But with getting the addon I used NVDA. This took from Sunday to today. I did lots of reading and I did it slowly so I won’t mess anything up.

Re: Window title for desktop

I have a vague memory of trying that.  I didn't know if it could still be done.

Hi Gene,

You know right up until Windows 8.0, you could type progman in the run dialogue and you could bring up the old style Windows 3.1 program manager. For laughs and giggles, I wish they still had that, but it would only be bloat ware an thus unnecessary code which Microsoft finally got rid of.

A longtime ago, going back to Windows 3.1 or earlier, the rough equivalent was called program manager.  This code for the name is evidently still there and for some reason, NVDA sees both codes at different times.
