What are those things the web is "telling you to do"?
Perhaps we can help you do them without having to enlist a light-slave.

Yes, it seems to have nothing to do with NVDA. The web tells me a number of things to do that I can't understand. I'll have to get a sighted tech to help me out on this.

Dear Friends,



I do not usually keep up with this list, so please forgive me if this matter has been dealt with recently. When I work with Word documents NVDA frequently pauses before reading something to me. The pause frequency and the length of the pauses increase as the documents get longer. I have had this problem for years and with different versions of Word and of NVDA.
Currently I am using Microsoft 365 and my NVDA is up to date. Is there some configuration I need to change, either in Word or in NVDA?



Warmly,

Ralph

Also, the original message specifies very specific problems.  It says in part, "... When I work with Word documents NVDA frequently pauses before reading something to me. The pause frequency and the length of the pauses increase as the documents get longer..."
It isn't at all clear, at least to me, that problems others have discussed are the same in origin or relevant to the very specific ones discussed in the original message.  The original message is quoted at the bottom of the quoted messages in this message.

It could also be argued that sighted users don't see anything for
whitespace (either spaces, tabs, newlines, etc) (ok Word with
non-printable characters displayed is an exception).

To the OP, In any case, if you can think of a good workaround and
use case, then feel free to create an issue. As Gene noted, you
don't generally want spaces between words read out when just reading
regular text, and depending on how you navigate, they ARE reported
now. Whether that fits what you need, will depend on.... what you
need, and what you are doing.

to see if there are any spaces on the line and I issue the

are spoken on the line and blank isn't.

That makes sense since if it announced space when it saw
spaces in a line when not spelling the line, you would hear
space announced during ordinary reading between every word.

I don't know, but personally I have found it pretty successful to scan QR codes on my computer screen with my iPhone.

The camera doesn't have to be positioned exactly, and just moving it around slowly with the built-in code scanner running, usually works. That assumes you can use either the built-in code scanner, or can use one in whatever app you're running that is constant pick-up, not point-and-snapshot.

Re: Google Drive Stop Sharing a File

Gene
 

I haven't used Google Drive but I was curious and played around.  I didn't take notes but the following may give you enough information to allow you to do what you want.  If my instructions aren't quite right, since you already know how to share files, the following may give you enough information to remove a name.

If you know how to find the name of the person you don't want to share with any longer, find it, turn off browse mode, open the context menu, and up and down arrow until you find share.  Press enter.
Look around.  Stay in focus mode and you will see something like a combo box where you will see names of those who can share the file.  You should hear something like remove and the name.  When you have up or down arrowed to the name you want to stop sharing with, press delete.

Since I played around and didn't take notes, my description may not be quite correct but if you already know enough to share files, you can probably figure out what to do based on what I wrote to remove someone.

I can tell you how to do this in Chrome, but I don't have a site to
check with in Firefox.  but I can probably tell you how in Firefox. I
can try search with voice and have the dialog come up in Chrome. Firefox
doesn't support Google's search with voice.  But when I see messages
come up in Firefox, I can usually use f6 to move to the dialog.  I can't
tell you how many times, but try using f6 a few times and see if you get
there.  Then try tabbing to see if you see the buttons.

In Chrome, when the dialog comes up, tab around the buttons and use the
space bar on the one you want.

Hi "Group,
When I have a video conference I get a popup saying allow access to
microphone/camera. I try tab/shif+tab but cannot find the popup to
press enter to allow.
Is there a shortcut key to do that?
Any repsonse would be appreciated.

Re: looking for an NVDA trainer in Columbus Georgia

Gene
 

What training does the person want?  Does she want Windows training or does she already know how to do what she wants to do using another screen-reader and only wants to know how to do the same things with NVDA?

I have someone who is looking for someone to train her in NVDA who lives in Columbus, GA. She would prefer in-person training but may be willing to do it over the phone—you would have to ask her. She is willing to pay the person.

Thanks.
