Re: Spreadsheet editing software recommendations - open office, or libre office?

 

These days, with the advent of the entirely legal "recycled license market" coming out of the EU, I'd recommend buying the real thing for a song.

I've now upgraded at least 6 machines with Office 2016 Pro Plus for $10 US or less per machine using recycled licenses.

Re: Spreadsheet editing software recommendations - open office, or libre office?

 

the only free and opensource softwares which i found are libreoffice
and openoffice and i did not find anything else until now.
but libreoffice is more compatible with microsoft file formats.

Microsoft refresh tool.

 

I bought this  Acer laptop, 256GB SSD, frankly because that was all I could afford, I make money from book sales, after all. Anyway, I assume that it will come with a lot of bloat on it. ACER driver managers, and more ACER junk. I've never bought an ACER laptop before, usually I've gone with HP and or DELL because they are cheap, but this one was a deal so, I had a few questions regarding the Microsoft refresh tool.


1. Does it really do as Microsoft claims? Remove apps not by Microsoft? I'm looking to do a complete refresh when I unpack the laptop today.

2. I have a digital license tied to my Microsoft account for windows 10, but just in case, does anyone know how I can back up my product key for entering after I do the refresh? Also, will the digital license adapt itself to different home versions? Like, for example, if the laptop has 1809?

You can move the mouse with the keyboard now.  You can't move it as precisely.  I don't have an opinion about whether the Golden Cursor features should be incorporated into the source code.  But your implication that the mouse can't be moved without the Golden Cursor is not correct.

Jean,

 

I think the whole Golden Cursor thing should be in NVDA to be honest.  The ability to move the mouse using the keyboard has been in screen readers, since the invention of Windows.

 

Supernova has it, System Access has it, JAWS has it, Window-Eyes was best at it, and so on.

The search feature should, I think, be in NVDA, not in the Golden Cursor. This is important funcionality and is too important to depend on a user downloading an add-on to have it available.

Hi,

 

In my efforts to find out if Golden Cursor is as good as the mouse with JAWS, I’d say not quite.  Let me explain.

 

I just downloaded it, and there seems to be no way to search for a string of text within GC and have the mouse land on that text, so you can just click it, without routing, saving positions, etc.

 

Could this possibly be added?  A Mouse Search in NVDA?  I use Search in JAWS cursor all the time, and it moves the mouse to where I want it.

 

Or am I really stupid and missing it?

 

Someone suggested that GC does more than the JAWS cursor, but I don’t really see that.

 

All the best

 

Steve

Re: Using Office Products with UIA

 

gene,
i tried and had my mentioned issues on my system.
but i know some people who say these are the issues of new windows versions
and on the contrary, today i asked another person and she told me that
she even has not slowness when navigating between items of desktop and
the files in her explorer!
someone told me that i should set my control panel view in small or
large icon and i did it when i had windows 7.
searching something and openning, for me worked as expected and the
only issue was when using first letter and even on that time, i did
not know how to navigate between items of control panel and only
tested with using first letter of my desired items.
date and time was just one example and maybe more openning undesired
item instead of the item which i wanted to open!

On 2/17/19, Gene <gsasner@...> wrote:
How many systems did you try this on? You have no basis to assume UIA is
the problem. One person, telling you about a problem they have means
nothing. the person may be making errors, or there may be some other
problem. I have never, on all the lists I'm on, in all the time since
Windows 7 and Windows 10- have been out, heard the complaint you are making,
that there is a general behavior that causes incorrect items to be opened.

Try the following:
Open the start menu.
Type date and time
and wait a moment.
Read the current line. Is it what you are looking for? If so, press
enter.
If not, down arrow until you find what you want. Press enter.

Usually, in Windows 7, when you are looking for something and you know what
you are looking for, opening Control Panel is unnecessary.

And we don't know if Control Panel is set up properly on your machine to
work as you expect with first letter navigation.

Try the procedure I gave and see what happens. We don't know why you are
having the problem. Turning off a part of Windows isn't the proper way to
find out what the problem is and it won't solve it if it is caused by
something else such as not having Control panel set properly to do what you
want.

no, i am sure that i never experienced such problems on xp.
even someone with windows ten, asked me that i want to open something
and when i opened my desire, i observed openning another item.
for example: when openning skype, she observes that firefox opens for her!
if i turn off uia, can i use windows 7 without any slowness or
openning undesired item?
yes, i tested openning items of control panel, when i use first letter
of my desired item, sometimes i can easily open anything that i wish
and sometimes i recieved undesired behaviour like the time which i
want to open date and time which i explaned.

Did you try opening time and date more than once? One malfunction, if

hi gene.
yes, one of the problems is slowness of nvda in file explorer and i
wish that when i navigate between items, i recieve feedback without
any pause!
but i heard from someone that the problems of newer windows versions
are because of uia and i decided to turn it off completely to use
windows 7 like windows xp without any slowness!
but slowness was not only problem for me.
when i wanted to open one item in control panel, i observed openning
undesired item.
for example: i went to the control panel to set the clock or calendar
of my system.
i pressed d and nvda told: date and time.
when i pressed enter to open it, nvda told action center security
instead of date and times and its options.
i dont have any of these issues on xp and got this result that msaa is
the best version of accessibility and made me hating uia.

If you want to turn it off because you have heard this or that

Re: Can we pass graphics while navigating web pages using NVDA?

Gene
 

There is one use of "graphic"where the reader wouldn't know a word had been skipped.  In a sentence like, "this is a graphic illustration of negligence," for example, if the word graphic weren't heard, the sentence would make sense but it might be gramatically wrong.  The person using the dictionary work around would have to decide if that matters to him/her.  But if the person is in an environment where the word "graphic" is heard often while on a web page, for example, or working with a not properly accessible program, eliminating the word may be important.  What if a not properly accessible e-mail program causes NVDA to read "graphic" every time you move to another message in the list?  I've worked with a program now and then where I hear a lot of meaningless graphic announcements as I move with screen review.  But in the case of an unfamiliar program, before you know it, you should cause graphic to be spoken if you are exploring the program with screen reviewor object navigation.  Sometimes, you have to click on graphics.  But for many users, the dictionary option is a good one.

That is the slippery slope logical fallacy.  If you do something that works well in moderation or sparingly, you will do it more until it is destructive rather than constructive.  That logical fallacy implies that people have no sense of logic or proportion.  If you let someone speed to a hospital because their wife is in labor, before you know it, everyone will speed for any reason and the law won't be enforced.

Hi Jean,

 

What happens then if you come across the word graphic in a document?  Does it just get missed out?  That would make it awkward for proofing.  I don’t like using dictionaries as a cludge if I’m honest.

If this setting isn't available in preferences, and I am not aware of a do not announce graphics setting, you may be able to stop graphic from being announced using the speech dictionary.

Does NVDA has feature to ignore graphic while navigating web page, and if it has, now to enable it?
A friend asked me this, and he shared him thought that sometimes he doesn't want to see graphics in article he reading, and he wonder if we could add this to NVDA if it doesn't exist. I can also create a tiket for this if noone did before.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Golden Cursor question

Gene
 

You can move the mouse with the keyboard now.  You can't move it as precisely.  I don't have an opinion about whether the Golden Cursor features should be incorporated into the source code.  But your implication that the mouse can't be moved without the Golden Cursor is not correct.

Jean,

 

I think the whole Golden Cursor thing should be in NVDA to be honest.  The ability to move the mouse using the keyboard has been in screen readers, since the invention of Windows.

 

Supernova has it, System Access has it, JAWS has it, Window-Eyes was best at it, and so on.

The search feature should, I think, be in NVDA, not in the Golden Cursor. This is important funcionality and is too important to depend on a user downloading an add-on to have it available.

Hi,

 

In my efforts to find out if Golden Cursor is as good as the mouse with JAWS, I’d say not quite.  Let me explain.

 

I just downloaded it, and there seems to be no way to search for a string of text within GC and have the mouse land on that text, so you can just click it, without routing, saving positions, etc.

 

Could this possibly be added?  A Mouse Search in NVDA?  I use Search in JAWS cursor all the time, and it moves the mouse to where I want it.

 

Or am I really stupid and missing it?

 

Someone suggested that GC does more than the JAWS cursor, but I don’t really see that.

 

All the best

 

Steve

That is the slippery slope logical fallacy.  If you do something that works well in moderation or sparingly, you will do it more until it is destructive rather than constructive.  That logical fallacy implies that people have no sense of logic or proportion.  If you let someone speed to a hospital because their wife is in labor, before you know it, everyone will speed for any reason and the law won't be enforced. 

 

I didn't say that using the dictionary is as good as being able to turn the announcement off.  It will work in a case where a word isn't used often and where it can usually be determined or assumed that you haven't heard it because it is that word.  I wasn't talking about using the dictionary for word after word.

Hi Brian,

So it looks like my ignorance was justified to some extent. I was so sure that threaded view was unusable because I did my own research on the Internet and didn't find any information about Control+Up/Down arrows. I actually don't remember finding any article about using Outlook with NVDA. This is a stark contrast with Thunderbird - NVAcces has an excellent tutorial on using Thunderbird with NVDA:

http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/accessible%20email%20client%20mozilla%20thunderbird.html

This tutorial also mentions something like "Thunderbird is the most accessible email client to work with NVDA". I don't mean to start email client war, I'm just saying that, because I was primed by this tutorial. And there is no alternative tutorial for NVDA+Outlook - or is there?

The only thing I found is an official accessibility guide for Outlook from Microsoft:

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/keyboard-shortcuts-for-navigating-mail-in-outlook-ca79fe45-80e5-47dd-b7a0-841d4711ed53

That mentiones Control+Up/Down shortcuts, but the function that they perform is called: "Select multiple non-adjacent messages". Who would've thought.

Anyway, it seems to me that there is some demand for a good tutorial on how to use NVDA with Outlook. Even though I still personally prefer Thunderbird at this point, it is always a good idea to have an alternative. Especially, it seems to me that Thunderbird development slows down these days (Mozilla no longer supports them and they are asking for donations more and more aggressively), and a couple of years down the road we might have to switch to Outlook as the only viable option.

Tony,

           You're quite welcome.   To be perfectly honest, your reaction to Outlook conversation view is far from the only one that I've seen expressing the same sentiments.  Every time I see it my first desire is to reach out and throttle the person making it.

           Outlook is an incredibly mature product, and probably is the best-supported by screen readers in general.  Most of the time issues are not with Outlook, but with ignorance about how to use it (whether that's getting it to do something you want it to do or stop doing something you don't want it to do).  I didn't even know about the CTRL+Arrow keys and discovered it in response to the questions raised here.  I generally figure that, when it comes to Windows based programs of the age and stature that Outlook has achieved, that there's almost always some keystroke sequence to do virtually anything whether I happen to know what it is or not.  I experimented to find this one, and I also experimented to discover the two-level expansion.  I found that the latter is well documented after having discovered it myself.

             I get, more than you might think, the kind of frustration you had expressed.  But what my years "in the biz" have taught me is that there's generally a solution I don't know about when it seems obvious that a lot of people other than myself would probably be screaming if there weren't.

Hi Brian,

 

I don’t really understand what you’re saying here in the context of JAWS.  Are you saying that JAWS can’t do this?  I’d beg to differ, although you’d have to get the Hotspot Clicker script that The Snowman has written, then you could do this just as easily.

Re: Just testing

 

What happened, actually, is that I'm used to, from time to time, check my e-mail through the web and see what's going on, precisely to take something that I could miss off the spam folder.
I'm also used to delete all the emails in my trash folder, which I don't remind how it's called in English, but well...
Yesterday I was deleting emails from there and accidentally, after selecting all messages, I ended up clicking in the "mark as spam" option instead of "delete" or something like that.
Well along with the other emails, there was emails that I had sent, so let's say I marked myself as a spammer. Lol
I need to be more careful and I will do, next time.

A lot of us get this from time to time. I have set up an iImap account so I can see the spam folder on my email providers servers. I then move spam to inbox when its appropriate and that then gets delivered to my pop3 service with the message sorting rules for my offline folders.
It seems to happen due to the way isps tend to  give scores to emails with regard to number coming from a source, sub line wording and repetition and listed on black list type servers sending the mail. You can often see the scores in the headers.
I would have thought they could avoid it by  not checking mail from a list, but I guess spammers would then spoof the headers to get to the final recipient. Sigh.

Hi, the reason for this test is, I received an email just now telling me
that one my emails was marked as spam and I should try to subscribe
again after 7 days.
As it clearly was a mistake, I'm sending to the lists that I'm into test
emails to see if I keep on there.

Cheers,
Marcio

Re: Golden Cursor question

Steve Nutt
 

Jean,

 

I think the whole Golden Cursor thing should be in NVDA to be honest.  The ability to move the mouse using the keyboard has been in screen readers, since the invention of Windows.

 

Supernova has it, System Access has it, JAWS has it, Window-Eyes was best at it, and so on.

 

All the best

 

Steve

The search feature should, I think, be in NVDA, not in the Golden Cursor. This is important funcionality and is too important to depend on a user downloading an add-on to have it available.

Subject: [nvda] Golden Cursor question

 

Hi,

 

In my efforts to find out if Golden Cursor is as good as the mouse with JAWS, I’d say not quite.  Let me explain.

 

I just downloaded it, and there seems to be no way to search for a string of text within GC and have the mouse land on that text, so you can just click it, without routing, saving positions, etc.

 

Could this possibly be added?  A Mouse Search in NVDA?  I use Search in JAWS cursor all the time, and it moves the mouse to where I want it.

 

Or am I really stupid and missing it?

 

Someone suggested that GC does more than the JAWS cursor, but I don’t really see that.

 

All the best

 

Steve

Re: Can we pass graphics while navigating web pages using NVDA?

I still don’t like it, however much you try to justify dictionary hacks.  Eventually you exclude loads of words, then it becomes more work.

But if, for some reason, you hear a lot of graphics announced and you can't turn off graphic announcements in the settings, you may save yourself a good deal of annoyance.  and it isn't much work in general.  Think about when the last two or three times were that you heard the word graphic other than in this thread or when your screen-reader announced an actual graphic.

That’s more hard work though, as well as concentrating on the text itself for mistakes, I’d say.

By context a lot of the time.  if not, they will know a word is missing because what is being said won't make sense.  At that point, you can go back and read the word by letter.

But how would they know the word was missing, if the synth didn’t utter anything?

Yes, it would be skipped.  Most people wouldn't come across the word often in documents and they have to remember that they won't hear it.  They can read letter by letter at the missing word location to verify that it is that word if they wish.

Hi Jean,

 

What happens then if you come across the word graphic in a document?  Does it just get missed out?  That would make it awkward for proofing.  I don’t like using dictionaries as a cludge if I’m honest.

 

All the best

If this setting isn't available in preferences, and I am not aware of a do not announce graphics setting, you may be able to stop graphic from being announced using the speech dictionary.

To all members
Does NVDA has feature to ignore graphic while navigating web page, and if it has, now to enable it?
A friend asked me this, and he shared him thought that sometimes he doesn't want to see graphics in article he reading, and he wonder if we could add this to NVDA if it doesn't exist. I can also create a tiket for this if noone did before.
Any help would be appreciated.
