I have no idea, as I cannot get it to load under any web browser to make even a quick assessment.   That was not the site I know to be problematic, which those of you who are on e-mail have already received the link to, which has been redacted from the archive.

When the first thing on the page is an audio recording of Mary Poppins Returns, which has only very recently had commercial release on DVD/Blu-Ray, the probability of that having been produced with the permission of Disney Studios is zero.

Hemingway Editor - Command for Colors with NVDA

David Russell
 

Hi Brian and others,

I am interested to use the Hemingway App on its website, once I put my
document into their editor.

I can read the summary report, but I cannot read their notations,
arranged by color as to subject, that I understand to be embedded in
the document I produce.

At one time, I worked for an organization that put their quality
assurance highlights in a similar fashion, but was using an older
version of Jaws at the time, around 2010.

I thought Hemingway may function similarly if colors function were enabled.

Re: Blog

 

Hi Ralph,
Although I believe you got the answers you were looking for, I just wanted to chime in and offer you a list where you can talk about Wordpress, ask your questions and such.
This list is actually a low traffic one as far as I can remember, and I'd believe the lady that created it is here with us.
While, as I said, the list is a low traffic one, if you post a question that's for sure you're gonna get some interesting answer(s).
Check it out here.

Cheers,

Hi Friends,

 

I am contemplating starting a blog and have a tech who can help me with hosting and getting started. Any suggestions for which software works well with NVDA? My tech is suggesting WordPress, but he is not particularly familiar with NVDA. Have you all found WordPress to be fully accessible using NVDA?

 

Warmly,

Hello folks,


Using Windows 10 pro 64, NVDA 19.1, MS Office 2003/Excel.


I'm having trouble running Excel with NVDA.  With NVDA running, Excel
will only flash and stop; reverting to the previous screen. If Excel is
already running, NVDA will not start.  Excel runs properly with JAWS
demo; runs, but not usably with Narrator.


I have used this combination (NVDA and Excel) successfully for many
months.  Perhaps I should go back to an earlier version of NVDA.  See my
note (below) posted on another list.


Anybody, thanks for ideas.


Howard


Trying different screen readers:
1. With NVDA, I get the results I described in my message above.
2.  With Narrator, Pressing enter on the desktop shortcut, I get two or
three clicks and revert to the previously running application.  Pressing
the spacebar will start Excel, but no useful information is read.
3. With JAWS (40 minute demo), Excel comes up and allows normal
functioning: data entry, reading cells, opening and saving file.

It appears to me that this is caused by an interaction with the screen
readers.

I probably could get done what I need to in less than forty minutes but
it sure is inconvenient.  Maybe something to ask the NVAccess folks.

Re: NVDA and Office 2016

Phillip Gross
 

Along the same lines I am finding the new format of spellcheck very annoying in word. When there is a spelling error it reads part of the line or sentence the word is on but I don’t know what the word is until I go to suggestions. If it’s something like a punctuation issue i haven’t gotten it to tell me.

I just made the switch from MS Office 2013 Professional to MS Office 2016 Professional.  I am finding it a bit different to set up so that it works smoothly with NVDA.  I would appreciate talking to someone to compare notes on the accessibility of NVDA and MS Office 2016 and the best way to set it up.

Thanks

Hello: Is it possible that the latest version of NVDA doesn't play
well with Excel 2007? I have been using Windows 10 with these
programs successfully in a previous version of NVDA but now, when I
open Excel it crashes almost immediately.
As an alternative, can I easily roll back to NVDA in a 2018 version
that Excel worked well with?

Any help or information would be appreciated. Thanks,

Sarah,

         Consider this your "one warning" in this realm.  That page is clearly loaded to the hilt with material that is not legally obtained and that directly violates copyright.  This sort of reference should never, and I mean never, be publicly posted on this list/forum by yourself or anyone else.

          To the membership at large:  Do not post any direct links or other forms of reference in this list to any materials that violate copyright in any way, shape, or form.  It is completely unacceptable.   This is an unwritten rule on this, and many lists/forums, and a written one on others.  It should go without saying, but there it is.

Yeah tha'ts why I'm not gogi to say but google jef recousky's site. I'm sure you will find it along with some other cool nvda add ons that will never make it to the official site. In fact here it is.

[Link to Material Violating Owner Copyright Redacted by Moderator] Scrol down to the add ons page and you should be good from here.
