Hi Jan,

 

Word should work with NVDA out of the box.  There are many add-ons and some may help with the way you work, just as there are several ways to accomplish most tasks in word and some will work better for different people than others.  We have a training module covering most features of Word which you may be interested in: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/microsoft-word-training-for-nvda-ebook/  It's only $30 AUD on its own, or you can buy it as part of the NVDA Productivity Bundle, which includes Word, as well as our other modules and telephone support: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/nvda-productivity-bundle/

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Re: Max Audio Pro problem

Sascha Cowley
 

I've found that clicking in the dialog or just tabbing around helps, but I can't give specifics as I've only ever encountered this software on examination laptops.

Hi all. I discovered a small but annoying problem with my computer. It is a Dell inspiron and it has the Max Pro Audio interface.

Ideally, I would like to uninstall this little middleman of a program, but failing that, does anyone know of a way to get NVDA to read this dialog?

another thunderbird issue with focus loss this time

Mary Otten
 

There is another issue that has cropped up since the update today. If you arrow in your message list and hit a message that t-bird thinks might be junk, some sort of box comes up informing you of that fact and offering choices, one of which is a button labeled "not junk". Press space on that, and what I expect to happen would be that I'd be put back in my messages list. But what seems to happen is that I'm some how stuck in the first part of the message that t-bird thought might be junk. I can't get out of that. The only thing I can do is close the app and re-open. What a waste of time! I've never seen this dialogue before about what t-bird thinks is junk, and I don't want to see it. If I think it is junk, I'll act accordingly, and  don't need an app interfering. How can I get rid of that?

I find it works lovely here. I don't have any issues with it not reporting anything that matters. I still get the alert text when new messages arrive, so I'm not sure what information is being left out that someone wants.

Hmmm I enabled it but it told me when I was doing everything, I wish I could customise things, maybe have all that extra text being put into sounds, and then a way for me to put a different sound with each event, and so on then in case I sat on my board or screwed up I'd probably know about it.

Hi


I must of just got a update this morning.


The first time I checked the emails etc no extra verbage.


Just opened it now and am getting what you said as in

it will tell you it is downloading messages from your accounts and how many. I just hit the ctrl key at present when it done that.


Just been reading some messages it will tell you the amount of unread messages etc and when you delete them etc


Will have more of a sus but I think apart from when it goes to download the messages I probably do not mind the rest been spoken.


Will also check if the status bar is disabled will it be spoken then?


I am guessing for messages been deleted it will.

Well I think someone should report this, the biggest issue with disabling status is that nvda does not read the progress on incomming mail, so you don't know when things are coming or going only hear they are.

Narrator definitely works on Windows 10 installation media. I haven't tried any of the recovery or repair tools that might be available within that environment, but I would expect them to be accessible these days.

locked Thunderbird talking way too much

 

Yeah to the poster on here with the issue with thunderbird 68.7, the statusbar is quite verbose, stating extra information at the end of the message.

Now in outlook I get a list of messages and I get unread or read at the start depending if they are, but right now the statuses say their bits after the fact with a pause.

So yeah the status bar is off.

Now if they change it so it says everything at the beginning or better yet get it so you can have things make noise if they are read or not then we can use sound cues which are less intrusive.
