Possible bug with nvda and LibreOffice Writer

William Wong
 

Hi,

I am not sure if this is an nvda issue.

Are there many of you use Libreoffice?

If there is a table in the Libreoffice writer file, when nvda focus on the table, e.g. press down arrow, nvda will not report that you have entered into the table

inside the table, if you move between cells, e.g. press tab, nvda will not speak about which column and row you are in.


I am not sure if this is a nvda issue?


Thanks.

Re: NVDA no longer says document review

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Mack,

I still get the document review when using insert + numpad 1 and numpad 7 in edit fields. In Thunderbird, once I turned on the settings using insert + main keyboard 6, 7 and 8.

When they are all turned on in edit fields, you do get the document review item in some cases.

Re: how to escape the notepad plus plus character panel?

Hi Dan,

Glad I could help.  As I mentioned in a previous post, sometimes the program will quit working. With the latest version, I think this has something to do with JAVA updates.  I had it happen twice in the past year.  All I do to get it working again is uninstall and reinstall.  With version 3.x, this seems to solve the issues.

Pressing F8 works to take you back to the main edit screen.  I don't see this indexed anywhere with the help screens, but it is good to know that this keystroke works.

Re: NVDA no longer says document review

Gene
 

You can only get document review in certain contexts, such as in a word processor.  You won't see it, for example, in Windows or file Explorer.  If you don't see it in contexts where you should, let us know.  Frankly, I never saw the point of it anyway.  Why not review a document using the application cursor?

Its unfortunate that some people can't distinguish between constructive and destructive criticism.  I hope that this message will allow you to see that this is constructive criticism. 
 
I'm pointing out that your subject line tells us nothing and that many people will just skip messages with such subject lines.  If you don't take what I wrote in the spirit of me presenting useful information that will benefit you and other list members that is unfortunate.  Subject lines such as a question, curious, and so on, tell us nothing useful.  the subject line is called that because it tells us the subject of what a message deals with, such as, can't open the NvDA menu, or Chrome browser doesn't behave properly when filling out forms, or Winamp no longer plays MP3 files, etc. 
 
Many people decide whether to read messages based on the subject line.  If you want to consider what I wrote as negative criticism, that's unfortunate.
