While you are in a message window, press ctrl+fullstop or ctrl+ Komma and zou can move between next and previous message without closing the message window. Unfortunatelz NVDA does not report that zou switch between messages but the focus gos to the next or previous message.

I wish I could love Outlook, I really do, but I've not found an efficient way of handling threaded emails yet at all. I mean, going from one email in a thread to another without having to go back into the inbox and choose the next message..

Dear all,

 

I was reading a discussion here in this forum where a jaws user complained that in NVDA you cannot filter columns in Outlook’s message list. Well, this is actually not true. This is not a screen reader setting, it is an outlook setting. If you go to view ribbon and then to advanced view settings and then to columns, you can add, remove and reorder columns as you like. You can remove the column which reports attachment, you can remove the cathegory column, the subject column etc.

 

Actually I can work with NVDA in a very efficient way just by using outlook’s settings efficiently. And this is the most important thing. A screen reader can be very efficient if you know the program you are working with and if you know all the settings that makes your live easier.

Well, I stay up all night and sleep some of the day, so maybe I have early onset vampirism, lol.

There are plenty of MUD, online text-based, games with zombies and vampires and such, which can be played on a PC with NVDA. Yes, I'm hanging on topic with my fingernails, but the toppings are starting to slide off this pizza a bit.

Re: developing

Adriani Botez
 

Hey Lali,

it is great that you want to take this responsibility and contribute to this
project. If you want to contribute to the core of NVDA, I suggest you to
read the devlearning forum first. This is a forum started by Joseph Lee
where you can learn Python 2 and differences to Python 3. The treats contain
lections which show you how to interpret NVDA's code from a pythonic
perspective. You can subscribe to that group here:
https://nvda.groups.io/g/devlearning

This is important because NVDA is still written in Python 2.7. But it is
planed to port it to python 3 during this and next year. If you are
contributing, I suggest to write your code in such a way that is compatible
with both Python 2.7 and 3.

You could also read the addon development guide here:
https://github.com/nvdaaddons/DevGuide/wiki/NVDA-Add-on-Development-Guide

And in case you want to start writing an addon, which is quite nice if you
want to test your capabilities, then you get answers on all your questions
on the addons mail list. You can subscribe to that list here:
https://nvda-addons.groups.io/g/nvda-addons

If you really want to raise pull requests agains NVDA's core, then I suggest
you to start solving issues which are labeled as "GoodForNewDev". You can
find those issues here:
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+label%3AgoodF
orNewDev


So, I think you should decide first if you want to start with an addon or if
you want to contribute to the core directly.

Hope this helps.

Best
Adriani

Well the reason why I love NVDA is because it has a cocmunity feel to it. Places like this list where you have the opportunity to talk to people behind the prroject and support each other, and you can get information directly from addon developpers puts other more expensive screen readers to shame, I am so proud to be able to spread the word about NVDA and break the misconception that just because something is free doesn't make it bad, in fact, it is putting technology into the hands of more people, especially those who would otherwise struggle to get access to it.

I'm just glad they made NVDA work with the Kindle app a few years back.
Before I got my iPad that was the only way I could read Kindle books.
