   Hi people!

The explanations are wonderful and they'll be also useful

for me but! Which program is tab and radio? I know several programs for listening of radio but I've never heard about tab and radio. Would you like to give me link to download and try it?
Cheers! My beer also is wonderful!

There are many other ways to work with the program.  I'll let others discuss those if they wish.  for now, remember that f2 starts play if you are already at a station and f2 also stops play.  For example, if you stop play of a radio station, f2 will start play again.  It will do this even if you close the program and open it again. 
 
In the main window, use the command f1 to bring up a list of short cuts.  Close the list with escape. 
Look through menus and dialogs.  Also, I believe shift f1 opens online help in your default browser.

If you change the order of the fields, that should determine what is read in which order.  Personally, I have no objection to having NVDA saying attachment first by default, I don't have a preference but my point is that you should be able to already determine the order within the program.

Re: FW: [Nvda-devel] Contracted braille input: testing in the next snapshot

Devin Prater
 

Thank you, Jamie, for all this. I've tried it, and writing "computer" in English US, grade 2 doesn't work, neither does using computer braille indicators, like 4-5-6, 3-4-6 to enter things like emoticons, although I guess that is a rather cheap way of getting around the ambiguity of US braille. Besides those little things though, input works wonderfully so far.

Hi everyone,

 

For some time, NV Access and other contributors were researching methods of letting users input text using contracted braille via a braille display. -I’m delighted to announce that  a test version (in the form of a next branch snapshot) is now available (next-13643).

More information on this effort can be found at:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/2439
And:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6449

 

Issues to be tested include:

*General experience when entering text in contracted braille in various situations.

* Entering text using various tables, including Unified English Braille (UEB), various English and other language tables and others.

* Other unexpected situations.

 

If you have feedback:

·         GitHub users: please comment on issues 2439 and/or 6449.

·         Send an email to James Teh (NV Access) at Jamie@....

·         Contact braille contributors, including I (Joseph Lee; new UEB table set, Korean braille tables and BrailleNote), Leonard (HIMS products), Davy Kager (Liblouis and Dutch tables), Michel Such (French translator), Derek Riemer (UEB input tester) and others.

·         Some of us have Twitter handles (Jamie’s is @jcsteh, mine is @joslee, Derek’s is @derekriemer) and others. You can also use #NVDASR hashtag or mention @NVAccess.

 

As this is an important feature, please test this feature widely. Thanks, and I and others look forward to reading your feedback.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Email attachments

Antony Stone
 

There may in fact be an attachment which you don't think of as one, but the
computer does.

The two commonest reasons for this are:

1. People who send emails with a "business card" style signature at the
bottom, giving their contact details - that is often attached to the email
using a format which can be imported into an address book application, or sent
to a mobile phone etc.

2. People who send emails in both plain text and HTML format - your email
client will be set to show you one of these by default, and often regards the
other one as an attachment, even though as far as you're concerned the content
is exactly the same.

Hope that helps,

Antony.

I think this would probably need an app module to do this.
Often it depends on how the field descriptor is flagged to a screenreader.

hello all,
i'm searching for a solution it is as follows:
i have a programm, in dutch for family tree research.
nvda will open the fields without any problem.
but before the field you can read what kind of information you have to write there.
so as example there is a field called surname.
but surname as in this example will not be mentioned.
we only have an opened field.
but the most strange is, when we are using jaws, jaws will open the field and mention also the name.
what can i do with settings of nvda to read the name while opening the field?
is there a solution?
i've noticed that there are more examples where nvda opens a field but without mention the name of the field.
it is not in all situations but in some!!!
which is very inconvenient and annoying if you do not know what needs to be typed into that field.
is there a solution for it?
greets

Hi now every time I open A message.
I hear the subject line of the message before the message starts reading.
Is that I way to get rid of that or not?
Also I turned off reports of headings under document formatting.
And I still hear level 1 or level two when I go to my e-mail inbox or my sent folders or my deleted folders how do I get that to stop or is that just something that NVDA now does?
Now also one last thing.
How do you add NVDA to your spelling words to if you want to put the word NVDA in yourmessage it won't flag it as A mussed spelled word?

This is usually on a tree view to let you know where you are in the tree, sideways if you like, folders within folders etc.
You would be a bit confused if you turn it off and as long as you hear what you want you can just interrupt it with the next command in any case.

Hi Rob,

Yes if you go into the Browse mode settings - NVDA+control+b - there is an
option for "Automatic say all on page load" which controls, you guessed it,
whether the page starts reading when it finishes loading. Uncheck that to
stop it. If you want it to do an automatic say all in some browse mode
programs but not others, you can setup separate configuration profiles for
different programs.

As well as Jacob's information about the location of the speech dictionary
itself, if you want to copy ALL your NVDA settings to move to a new
computer, you can create a portable copy (on say a memory stick) via the
NVDA Tools menu, move to the new computer, run the portable copy then from
NVDA's tools menu choose "install NVDA". Be sure to check "copy current
user configuration" when you make the portable version, and check "copy
portable version configuration" when you install on the new computer.

Kind regards

Quentin.
