Re: nvda and libreoffice

 

Answer to one of those questions, the one concerning not needing access
bridge is yes. The answer to your second question is always the latest
version. I'm running LibreOffice 4.10, and I'm having no major issues.
It is perfectly accessible.

You need to make an autorun file and put it on your flash drive. Keep in mind this will only work if you have autoplay turned on. It's a security feature.

Re: NVDA crashes on explorer window

Could it be that his preview pain is enabled in windows explorer and his
machine lags when trying to preview the files. Try waiting a few more
minutes when you open file explorer to give the machine time to load
everything. now if you are looking through different files it might
crash because it will try to load that file in the preview pain again.
hope this helps

I haven't used iTunes in a while so couldn't tell you what is happening,
but the last time i used it. it worked well with NVDA 15.4 and iTunes 12
or whatever the latest one was. It would be nice to have an auto run
feature for the portable copy of NVDA. I tried creating one and it would
only auto run in windows vista. Next project maybe would be to create an
NVDA stick that you can carry with you and it can just start talking as
soon as it is plugged in.

Re: nvda and libreoffice

juan gonzalez <jgonzalezh614@...>
 

I am just getting into libre Office and was wondering if you had some
tips on how to make it work better with NVDA. Thus far i have disabled
use java features and enabled use beta features. not sure if that is a
good thing or not but it seemed to make NVDA work a bit better with it.
Issues i have been getting include:

i was trying to set a password to a document and when i went into
settings/security and tried to find the add a password button. NVDA
would not tab around the dialog. i don't even know how i got it to find
the button but i did. when i set the password i selected OK and it took
me back to the settings dialog where again i could not tab around to the
OK button. as far as i know it didn't add my password to the file and
haven't found a way to do it.

another problem is when i put a misspelled word and i correct it with
the applications key. NVDA doesn't seem to know where it is at and i
have to pull up the start menu and go back to the libre Office to be
able to keep editing my document. happens also in excel sheets.

any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated

Honestly, I don't know of any screen reader that works particularly well

Hey Dan,
What other screen readers do you have? I have NVDA and System Access installed on my computer. I could install JAWS, but I wasn't sure how much better it would work with iTunes.
Of the two, NVDA is more reliable. I just tried to use System Access a few minutes ago and it cut out after only a few minutes.

Re: NVDA2016.1 questions

Gene NZ <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi

If you mean you want nvda to start on startup when windows does and you are using a installed version have a look under the general settings part of NVDA.

Just in cast you don't know how to start NVDA when it is not running use the CTRL + ALT + the letter N
To get into the preferences part of NVDA where you can makie changes etc use the NVDA key + the letter N
To quit your copy of NVDA use the NVDA key + the letter Q

Where I refer to the NVDA key this is a modifier key and can be either the insert key, the extended insert key or the capslock key, so one of these keys will be used say to turn off NVDA for example insert key + the letter Q

If you go into the preferences section of NVDA, to get there use the NVDA key + the letter N. You may have to arrow down for it to say prefences , thenyou will have to arrow right to general settings, press the enter key. Inside of there will be where you find it. Make sure it is checked to start nVDA when windows does, plus and the one below it should be checked as well.

Hope this helps.

Re: NVDA2016.1 questions

Gene NZ <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi

A while ago I put together different ways on how to start NVDA with a USB stick and or a CD version.
Any files that were needed are there as well.

A few years back Microsoft disabled the autoplay menu so the way it used to be started like that will not do it, because the autoplay menu was disabled. You have to enable the autoplay menu for it to work.

I know it works on the CD version but ca not remember for the USB version, I would have to check. I will have a look later on today on my windows 10 machine and see if it still works with the autoplay menu when the USB stick is plugged in.

Any how there are other ways of starting NVDA up there if you want to check them out. The link to this page is http://accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html
You can jump down quickly to the section by using the letter H in NVDA. Look for the section to do with USB stick and CD.

Hope this helps.

Re: NVDA2016.1 doesn't read Emoticons with Vocalizer nor

Gene
 

Yes.  I made a mistake when giving the command.  I consider the ability to change settings while not having them kept permanently to be an important advantage NVDA has over some screen-readers.  It lets you experiment and immediately go back to previous settings if desired.  It also lets you change one or more settings you might want to change for a specific task, then immediately change back.  The command to revert to previous settings is NVDA control r.  This can only be done if you haven't permanently saved the changes.  I often like to speed up reading at times, then revert, with one command, to my usual speed settings.

Saving settings on exit isn't necessarily a good idea.  You may change one
or more settings to accomplish a specific task or to try a different voice
and you may intend them to be experimental.  There is such a thing as too
much automation.  I believe that making permanent changes in a program
should be intentional, not automatic.  And you can save settings very
easily.  You don't even have to use the menus.  Simply issue the command
control alt c if you want to permanently save settings.

To make doubly sure you've saved all your settings, it's an idea to go to
the NVDA menu as soon as you've changed settings and choose Save
Configuration. Also, go to the NVDA menu, Preferences, General Settings, and
make sure "Save configuration on exit" is checked.

We're all learning, so no need to make out you're dumb!

I don't know how you turn off the preview pane in Windows 10 but instead of waiting to see what happens, just turn it off if it's on.  In Windows 7 the preview pane causes crashes.

if one does an autorun.inf to start nvda on u s b drive user account control pops up and asks to continue. Not sure either alt + y or may be alt + r to allow nvda to run is needed, and that's if autorun is not disabled. Same thing for a cd rom.

during NvDACon 2016 #NVDACon

Hello,
I am not sure, what kind of suggestions are addressing?

Hello all,

First, thank you all for joining the next generation NVDA
International users list.

The leadership team would like to receive feedback from beginning
NVDA users regarding the following:

2016 is a special year for NVDA users: NVDA turns ten. To
celebrate this, some members of the community are organizing a
huge online conference around NVDA’s tenth birthday: NVDA Users
and Developers Conference (NVDACon for short), to be held in April
2016.

NVDACon is an annual gathering of NVDA users and developers to
talk about current state of NVDA development. Topics have included
math support, braille enhancements, supporting Windows 10, web
browsing, Google applications and more. This year, to coordinate
NVDACon 2016, several members of this list, together with outside
supporters and NV Access formed a planning committee to discuss
planning and logistics of this online conference.

One of the suggestions considered by organizers is a session or
two devoted to beginners. The goals of these sessions are to
introduce you to NVDA and its features, understanding concepts
such as NVDA menu, object navigation, web browsing and others, an
introduction to add-ons and more. Because organizers would like to
receive feedback from many fellow community members, we’d like to
ask you to send in your suggestions to the committee by either
contacting committee members (Nimer, I, Derek Riemer and others),
or sending an email to nvda+owner@groups.io
<mailto:nvda+owner@groups.io> with the subject line of “NVDACon
2016” and the admins will forward it to the committee for
consideration during our next meeting (sometime in March). Also,
even if you are not a beginner (or consider yourself a power
user), more suggestions, the better, so we’ll accept suggestions
from you as well. The deadline for receiving your email will be
March 14, 2016 (shortly before Accessible World Tek Talk event on
NVDA and NVDACon) so we can discuss your comments and finalize the
schedule by early April.

Thank you, and the NVDACon Planning Committee are looking forward
to considering your comments.

Sincerely,

Joseph

Joseph S. Lee

P.S. For all NVDACon related communication, including a general
invite to be sent to this list in April, please use #NVDACon
hashtag. Thanks.

Re: NVDA crashes on explorer window

Hi, I don’t have windows ten. But I assume it’s the same way you would turn it off in 7. I’ll have to look at my trusty thumb drive when that happened to me.

I don't know how you turn off the preview pane in Windows 10 but instead of waiting to see what happens, just turn it off if it's on.  In Windows 7 the preview pane causes crashes.

Could it be that his preview pain is enabled in windows explorer and his
machine lags when trying to preview the files. Try waiting a few more
minutes when you open file explorer to give the machine time to load
everything. now if you are looking through different files it might
crash because it will try to load that file in the preview pain again.
hope this helps

Re: is the mail app accessible in windows 10

P. Otter
 

that's good news!
i'm not so satisfied with thunderbird as most other.
my problem is, when i start thunderbird, and  i go into the inbox the cursor is on the upper of the list, while for example winmail has the cursor on the last read email.
but as far i know that is impossible to do with thunderbird.
i hope that it better in the mail app.
on my laptop wich is working with windows 10 home, I have succeeded to let winmail work on windows 10.
on my desktop i tryed the same tric, but without succes.
it's a pitty.
windows vista was a realy bad os but winmail is the only  brilliant light weight  email client.
the rest of vista, i can't better talk about it!
cheers

Hi,

This might change: according to some, Mail app works with latest next snapshots (at least say all works, according to them).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

The answer is no.  I tried it too but had the same issues you are having.

I did find on the suggestions of others here that the Thunderbird app works quite well.  I am using it very happily now.
