According to my app I’m running 19.02 can’t see a 19.02.1 I’m using the latest stable NVDA v2018.4.1. I just tried the check for addon updates and it didn’t say anything.

Subject: [nvda] Add-on Updater: version 19.02.1 emergency manual patch #AddonRelease

 

Hi everyone,

For users of Add-on Updater: if you are using NVDA alpha build 16682 and later, there exists a bug in Add-on Updater that prevents you from installing future add-on updates. I have pushed an update to this add-on, but the thing is, you must apply the patch manually if you are indeed running alpha snapshots (those running 2018.4.1 are not affected).

 

If you happen to be running alpha build 16682 and later, go to addons.nvda-project.org, select Add-on Updater, and download stable version. If the version you get is 19.02.1, you’re good to go. For those using 2018.4.1 or an earlier alpha snapshot, I highly encourage you to update to Add-on Updater 19.02.1 via Add-on Updater itself.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: bug with nvda selection

This isn't a bug.  You must move to the last letter of the last word before copying to the clipboard.  If you are moving by word, you are moving to the beginning of the word and must move by character to the last character.

I got nothing last night before retiring.  As of a few moments ago I got the group of three, but even after exiting NVDA and restarting there's been no fourth as a single item.

his feature in Firefox may interest you:

Reader View is a Firefox feature that strips away clutter like buttons, ads and background images, and changes the page's text size, contrast and layout for better readability. Reader View settings are easily customizable to fit your reading preferences.

Press F9. If supported, the webpage will change to Reader View and NVDA will start Say All. Press F9 again and the default layout of the webpage will come back. Then, you can expolre other features and elements on that page.

Hello, I haven’t tried this with the latest version of Thunderbird. But I often manage to do this by building the list in notepad, with commas as delimiters. Then I copy and paste it into the box in Thunderbird.

Although it's been a while since I've joined this group, I guess I couldn't properly introduce myself. I am Pramit. I am visually impaired and cannot read at all.


As my vision kept dropping, technology (mobile & PC) has had a huge impact as it has enabled me to still continue to work independently, be productive at work and be socially connected.


I am extremely passionate about building better tech solutions for all of us. With divine grace, I have managed to put together a tech startup with an equally motivated partner.


Amongst my interest, I am a voracious reader (hearer of audiobooks), I love meditating and I am also an experimental cook, results of one can lead to wow to only I will have to eat situation. I was lucky enough to reverse my diabetes through significant lifestyle changes about 10 years back. Sharing my learning and motivating others online is another passion/interest area.

Hi everyone,



For users of my add-ons: in a few hours I'll be releasing updates to various
add-ons, including Enhanced Touch Gestures, Golden Cursor, Systray List and
others. Today's updates are mandatory because they will make these add-ons
compatible with work that was just approved for inclusion in NVDA.



The following add-ons are affected:



* Easy Table Navigator
* Enhanced Touch Gestures
* Golden Cursor
* GoldWave
* Object Location Tones
* ObjPad
* Resource Monitor
* StationPlaylist 18.09.6-LTS
* SystrayList
* Virtual Review



Updates to these add-ons will show up via Add-on Updater soon.



For ones not listed (Add-on Updater, stable version of StationPlaylist, and
Windows 10 App Essentials), they are affected to some degree if you are
using older versions of those add-ons.



What happens if you do not install updates for add-ons listed above: there
may come a time when NVDA alpha snapshot users will find that these add-ons
are not working, caused by changes to NVDA itself and use of old add-on
releases (I'm giving you an early warning so you'll know what to do now).



Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph




Re: Thunderbird Distribution list question

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

As a generic bit of advice for all email clients. I have found mail lists in the Microsoft and Tbird email programs sometimes do not send to all the recipients for no good reason.
This may work in Tbird but not tried it. Get every email you want in your mailing list into a text editor like notepad. shove a comma between them with no spaces, and leave the last one with nothing at the end. Then have this text file where you can get at it easily.
When you want to send to a list and have that list actually send, cut and paste the text into the field you want, to cc bcc whatever, and put your own email into the to field to give a confidence check. Then send the mail.

Re: NVDA and Excel

 

Hi,
I think I'm having similar, if not exactly the same, issue.
Basically, in Excel, when typing in a cell NVDA won't announce the character when I pressed the backspace key, or when I used the left/right arrow keys to move through the content of the cell. In addition, when I start typing into a cell, NVDA would say 'unknown'.

Re: Thunderbird Distribution list question

 

Chris,
Hope you wouldn't mind it.
This is an advice I give whenever I see something like your message.
Maybe you might want to just write above the quoted one. I'm sure that, doing the way you are right now, most of the people just don't see what you wrote because they just don't feel like arrowing down many many times to see what you have to say.
So maybe you'll be better doing what I advised.
However after all, it's still up to you :)

Re: a possible focus problem in excel 2016

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Alexandre,

As others have noted, there are more efficient ways to achieve what you are trying to do here.  Two others:
1. Move the focus to a cell in the column you wish to delete
2. Press CONTROL+SPACEBAR to select the current column.
3. Press CONTROL+MINUS to delete the column

OR
1. Move the focus to a cell in the column you wish to delete  
2. Press the APPLICATIONS KEY to open the context menu
3. Press D for "Delete"
4. DOWN ARROW to "entire column" and press ENTER.

You can also select the column, open the context menu and press D and it will delete the column.

Aside from all of that, the reason what you were originally trying to do isn't working, is that the current "object" is considered to be the entire grid of cells on the worksheet, so when you move the mouse to the object, it moves to the centre of the visible worksheet.

I think that is as accurate as it can be with the current implementation.  It may be possible to make this more accurate in future.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi friends.

  2. Press nvda key + numpad minus to rout navigator to focus.
  3. Press nvda key + numpad divide to rout the mouse to the navigator.
  4. Press numpad slash to click the right mouse button.
  5. Choose delete column.

It is deleting the wrong column.

 

I also tried only use nvda key + divide to rout the mouse to the focus since I thought that the current cell should have the focus and the navigator would be placed in it automatically.

But it didn’t work too.

I haven't messed with a distribution list, but at least in the address
field, if you hit end and then hit enter, it creates a new entry, e.g.
to: or cc: or whatever it is. So you might try that.
