Re: FW: [win10] Labeling tables with Nvda

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Ashley,

 

It would help to know if you are using Word or Excel.

 

Assuming you are using Excel:

 

Check the table and see if there are any blank columns in it. Sighted users sometimes like to leave blank columns between blocks of data to make them visually clearer NVDA will label a contiguous set of columns i.e. no blank columns between them.  You can set these by placing the cursor in the leftmost cell of the title row and pressing NVDA+shift+c.

 

You can label each column that is separated by doing the same keystroke in its top cell. NVDA will then call out the heading of the orphan column , leave the blank column silent, and report all the headings of the columns that are touching each other.

 

The same applies to the row heading, Place the cursor in the top left corner of the table if there are no blank column titles in the header row and press NVDA+shift+r to define the column that contains the row names.

 

Tip:

If there are any blank columns you can always place a hyphen (-) or some other minor character in the blank header cell and this will cause NVDA to treat the entire row as relating to the left most column items even if the second column remains blank below the header row.  

 

If you are using Word then this extract from the NVDA user manual should help you:

8.1.1. Automatic Column and Row Header Reading

NVDA is able to automatically announce appropriate row and column headers when navigating around tables in Microsoft Word. This firstly requires that the Report Table row / column headers option In NVDA's Document Formatting dialog be turned on. Secondly, NVDA needs to know which row or column contains the headers in any given table. After moving to the first cell in the column or row containing the headers, use one of the following commands:

Name

Key

Description

Set column headers

NVDA+shift+c

Pressing this once tells NVDA this is the first header cell in the row that contains column headers, which should be automatically announced when moving between columns below this row. Pressing twice will clear the setting.

Set row headers

NVDA+shift+r

Pressing this once tells NVDA this is the first header cell in the column that contains row headers, which should be automatically announced when moving between rows after this column. Pressing twice will clear the setting.

These settings will be stored in the document as bookmarks compatible with other Screen Readers such as Jaws. This means that users of other screen readers who open this document at a later date will automatically have the row and column headers already set.

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Hey all

I hope you all are doing well.

 

Does anyone know how to label columns in tables so that NVDA reads the title of the cell? If that makes any since.

Thanks.

Re: getting the repeting of the subject line in an e-mail to stop repeting when you open a message

Probably getting in the habit of issuing the read to end command after opening a message will stop extraneous text.  I don't know if there is any other way to stop this behavior or if stopping it might have other results you don't like.  you also haven't told us which e-mail program you are using.

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?

Re: NVDA & Slack?

Robert Kingett <kingettspeaks@...>
 

Slack is not as accessile with NVDA on its own as it could be. They would need to enable IRC to make it fully accessile to you. Their desktop client cannot e used at all by NVDA

Turn off report headings in the document formatting dialog.

NVDA & Slack?

Arthur BREUNEVAL
 

Hello list,
My colleagues want to use Slack for a project.
So I just have a question:
Anyone has already used Slack with NVDA, and how the accessibility is good with it ?
Because we have not created the team yet and they are waiting for me to tell them if I can use Slack properly.

Thanks in advance for your responses,
Regards.

Re: NVDA 2016.3 not working - help?

Sharni-Lee Ward
 

For the record, I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and the latest Firefox, as well as NVDA 2016.3, and have no problems with Firefox. None. Nada. I don't know what the problem could be for this person but I know I don't have it.

Does it happen in other applications as well or just in mozilla fire fox?


When you go into other applications does it speak the menus correctly or you can navigate with the arrow keys?


Do you get the same result in other browsers with it not speaking? You probably have mentioned it but what operating system and version of nvda?

Hi all

 

I have been using NVDA for years. I use a Windows 7 machine with current Firefox and have updated to NVDA 2016.3. It no longer works for me.

 

When I start NVDA I hear the piano arpeggio as usual, and the page title is read. After that nothing else is read. For example:

 

·         Hitting the “H” key reads “H” rather than navigating to the first page heading

·         Tabbing through the page moves focus but nothing is announced

 

I am not sure if this is a bug with NVDA, Firefox or my computer audio settings, but suspect it’s an NVDA issue.

 

Has anyone experienced something like this? Suggestions?

Re: NVDA and Open Book

Alexander Masic
 

One idea with open book is that it runns without nead of screenreader. That means you are able to use open book without any. When you turn on open book it will cancel Jaws. it's same company so it is well integrated. Of course it works with NVDA. but maybe yyou nead to turn speach off in Open book.

There is maybe an idea and target is some category of customers. But in genaral that is nothing for a mayority of us. it's very expensive and if i would be yoou, i have spend that money to upgrade my abby finereader.

Dear all,

 

I love Notepad and use it much for my documentation.

I see now that when I use the save option in Notepad, it goes as default to save it as ansi code and each time I have to change it manually to Utf-8 – as it was all the time before.

My qeustion:

Is there any way to change it permanently as it was before and I WILL NOT HAVE EACH TIME TO CHANGE THE ENCODING TO uTF-8.

I have another pc with Windows 7 and there, all is right.

Does this problem is only in my machine or it happens to work so with all windows10 anniversary users?

 

Please help.

Adriano Barbieri
 

Hi to every one,

Weather Plus bug report: by pressing nvda+shift+w.
This happens to those who have set the forecast up to 10 days.
To resolve the problem, reduce the days forecast to 9.
This morning seems to have been reduced the days of the forecast total, I
don't know if this thing is temporary, and will be reduced further, in that
case reduce these yet.
The problem has already been fixed and will be in the next upcoming update.
Thanks!

This morning seems to have been reduced the days of the forecast total, I don't know if this thing is temporary, and will be reduced further, in that case reduce these yet.

Il problema è già stato risolto e sarà nel prossimo aggiornamento imminente.
Thanks!

notepad in Windows ten version 1607 build 14393.321

Moti Azrad
 

Dear all,
 
I love Notepad and use it much for my documentation.
I see now that when I use the save option in Notepad, it goes as default to save it as ansi code and each time I have to change it manually to Utf-8 – as it was all the time before.
My qeustion:
Is there any way to change it permanently as it was before and I WILL NOT HAVE EACH TIME TO CHANGE THE ENCODING TO uTF-8.
I have another pc with Windows 7 and there, all is right.
Does this problem is only in my machine or it happens to work so with all windows10 anniversary users?
 
Please help.
 
Moti

I would use something other than ms outlook.
Unless it can be fixed.
I abandond ms office ages ago.
In fact I think if I ever hit the need for office that I will either use old office xp which I legally own or one of the free office installs.
I do know that office 2007 or 2010 will work and with the features I use I don't need the cloud office apps and so won't run into a problem.
Since I do have jarte though its about all I will need.
If libreoffice works well or openoffice that is then I will probably use that.
True, if someone offers me office whatever the latest is and its funded for my business then hmmm.
Maybe I will use jaws because thats what people do for office and just use nvda for my personal use but I'd really like to use nvda for as much as I can.
Technically I could use my other comercial readers but since nvda needs to be used on a lot of things well.
I have got used to the ribbon in office and the shortcuts and it works as it should as long as I know the various code sequences.

Hi Paul,

I have indeed resorted to writing my replies in Notepad and pasting
them into Outlook. However, It is one more step and what if I have to
quote parts of a message? More formatting issues for one thing when I
transfer data between programs. So yes, there are workarounds but this
situation must be addressed.

Hello Pranav and all,

Thoroughly annoying when the half-composed message is lost. Perhaps a
plan B is available? Compose the reply message in Notepad or similar
and only open up Outlook to copy the completed reply from clipboard
into the required location. This also allows simple regular updates while composing.

Kenny,



Outlook 2016 works with NVDA but there is one issue which renders it
almost unusable. At least on my computer, when composing a message or
replying to a message, NVDA locks up randomly. The only way to
recover is to reboot the computer. I have raised tickets about this
problem.

Hi how well does outlook and Microsoft word 2016 work with nvda? I am

Re: NVDA next commits query

Stephen
 

Sorry, that next bit about Github went way over my head.
I'm browsing the list of changes via the website https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/commits/
Is there a link I can go to so that I can do the same with my browser as you told me how to with github?

At 05:20 PM 10/13/2016, you wrote:
Hi,
First, locate the hash for that commit, then pull in latest changes (after
checking next first) and do:
git log commitHash...head
You should also do:
git submodule sync
git submodule update
The last two are required as many submodules have changed.
Note that you'll get commit messages in reverse order.
A lot has changed in the past five months, including:
* NVDA versions 2016.2.x and 2016.3 released.
* Fixes and workarounds for various applications and Windows versions
(you'll find my work under Windows 10 commits).
* Support for new braille displays.
* Support for new apps.
* Ability to disable individual add-ons without uninstalling them (one of my
favorite features to implement).
* Support for Edge-based controls and Mail app in Windows 10 version 1607.
* A feature or two that'll fundamentally change how people think about NVDA
(one of them is a fitting event for closing NVDA's tenth anniversary
celebrations, and this feature is about to land on next branch, so stay
tuned).
In case of the last one, I'll make an announcement to this forum and others,
as it requires extensive testing and NV Access and other developers
(including I) would like to receive feedback.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi.
I am viewing the commits in the next branch of the NVDA snapshot, and I have
not updated NVDA next in 5 months.
I would like to be able to see what's changed since nvda next

How can I do this?

Re: spotify and music sounds

Kenny Dog <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


Just on this thread out of curiosity has any one done a tutorial on how to use it with NVDA? If they have can they point me in the right direction for it.


I have signed up for the free version of it to see how accesible it is etc.


If there is no one that has done a written tutorial or a audio one I will sus it out and see what comes together as in a tutorial.


It looks as though there is some material up there to point you in the right direction of how to use it.

It depends on how you are going to use it.  There are apps for mobile phones and other such devices.  There is an application you can install but I'm not sure if it is accessible enough to use conveniently with Windows.  You can also play content directly by using the web site itself.  When I tried this awhile ago, doing so was reasonably accessible.  But if you want to try installing and playing with the Windows application, you may certainly do so. 
That appears to be a direct download link for Windows users.
 
Also, on the spotify home page
there is a download link.
I haven't checked to see what you see when you follow it.

Re: Symbols and making them more 'english'

Quentin Christensen
 

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.

Are you talking about sharing your speech dictionary entries?


If so, then %appData%\nvda\speechDicts seems to be where those files are stored.

I have often been asked if my replacements and regrouping could be imported onto another computer without having to manually alter them one at a time.
All these line and tick and stuff, ot to mention number do upset us.
I have altered $&^_ etc to say ampasand up arrow et etc, and find it much better Hsh is for # as well.

Anyone know the simple way to share it?

Re: New Window Information

Quentin Christensen
 

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.

Straight keys to press are in the user guide: http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?

More detailed walkthrough and activities in the Basic Training for NVDA training module: http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

Kind regards

Quentin.
