Dear Brian & List:

I run Outlook 2013 and 2016 on a different system.

If I want to read the subject field, I shift and tab to get to it.

As a matter of interest. I see a growing number of people here saying I did not see the subject line. Being an old-fashioned person with an old-fashioned email client called Outlook Express I always hear the subject line. Does this mean that clients that are more modern need to be prompted to show it or does nvda not read it?

Re: format attributes

 

Not really.
It's just that sometimes I pass really fast through the messages, and also I changed columns on my Thunderbird.
Formerly it would read the email subject then the sender's name, but I just inverted it.

Are you asking about the Windows Mail that came with Vista? If so, while I
have no objection to fixing it, would it only correct a problem in that
program and do enough people use it to justify spending NVDA resources on
repairing the problem?

In Windows Live Mail, I don't know about recent versions of NVDA, but when
composing messages, the cursor didn't move at all properly when reviewing a
message using read to end. If that is the same problem, it might be more
worth looking at since a fair number of people still use that program.

Re: Add-on Updater 19.02 (mandatory update), Windows 10 App Essentials and SPL Studio add-ons retires standalone update facility as of today

 

Hi Jeff,

Ah yes, I should have clarified my original statement to say that it applies to long time NVDA users… Sorry about that.

For a number of years some NVDA add-ons shipped with ability to update themselves on the fly (check, download, and install updated versions of themselves). This began with StationPlaylist Studio add-on in 2016 and Windows 10 App Essentials in 2017. This in turn was inspired by a project I’m working on that’ll let NVDA itself check for add-on updates (placed on hold due to more important add-on management work under consideration by developers).

In 2018, I introduced Add-on Updater, an add-on that lives up to its name: check for, download, and install updated versions of NVDA add-ons, including itself. My chief aim was to give the NVDA user community a chance to test drive the project I mentioned above, and incorporate community feedback as I work on this project. In reality, Add-on Updater is really a more generic implementation of add-on update check facility from StationPlaylist Studio and Windows 10 App Essentials (mostly the one that came with Windows 10 App Essentials was used, since it has more user impact than StationPlaylist Studio add-on).

Then comes changes to NVDA in late 2018 that affected any add-on that performs update checks. While “teaching” (modifying) Add-on Updater to deal with changes in NVDA, I realized that it would be burdensome to maintain the same code in StationPlaylist Studio and Windows 10 App Essentials, so I announced that standalone update check facility from the latter two add-ons will be phased out in 2019. As of today, it is done – all add-on checks are done by Add-on Updater (there are two add-ons (not mine) that still comes with their own way of checking for updates; the first one (Braille Extender) may see huge changes in the future as discussion is under way to bring features from that add-on to NVDA; the second one (WeatherPlus) isn’t working at this time because a crucial component the add-on relies on went south a while ago).

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Joseph

Dear NVDA community,
 
In about an hour from now, two significant events will take place (well, really three):
 

  • Add-on Updater 19.02: this is a mandatory update for all Add-on Updater users, as it prepares this ad-on to deal with a pull request that’s being reviewed (regarding new add-on API approach). I’m calling it “mandatory” because for most add-ons, you need to use Add-on Updater to update add-ons on the fly.
  • Standalone update facility is going away from two add-ons: as of today, version 19.02 of StationPlaylist Studio and Windows 10 App Essentials will retire standalone update facility. You should know by now what this means.

 
Other things to note:
 

  • Windows 10 App Essentials 19.02 will now require Windows 10 Version 1803 (April 2018 Update) or later. If you need to use Windows 10 App Essentials in Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update), you should download 19.01.2 from https://github.com/josephsl/wintenApps/releases/download/19.01/wintenApps-19.01.2.nvda-addon .
  • Current development snapshots of StationPlaylist Studio add-on supports ability to reload or reset add-on settings by pressing Control+NVDA+R once or three times, respectively. This work will show up in March for people using stable and long-term channels.
  • Thanks to recent NVDA alpha snapshots, Action Center and time picker workarounds that shipped with Windows 10 App Essentials for a number of years is now part of NVDA itself. Notably, item status for various quick actions in Action Center (including brightness value) will be announced, as well as better support for time pickers such as alarm configuration in Alarms and Clock app.

Hi,

In english, this simply means that windows 10 app essentials and station playlist updates will now be controlled by the add on updater add on. Before, they had  their own version of the updater that was separate from this.


Hope that clears things up for you.

indent level when making a bullted list.

You can add graphics, NVDA will tell you the X/Y coordinates and if
the image overlaps another object: this is very cool.

Tables are usable, but the row/column navigation I am used to from the

many "tabs" I have used to keep track of which column I am editing.

So, I would say it is usable; much better than 3 years ago.

It depends. Often these days software only downloads a stub, so installing
will not work unless you give it internet access. Chrome does this as do
many pieces of software. It seems that the stub looks at your machine and
can then intelligently get the files appropriate to your software and
hardware environment.
In these cases there is no way once install starts to get it to stop
without cancelling the whole install.

I notice for example if I download a stub of a piece of software say on one
machine then run that on another, and that happens to be an xp machine it
will almost immediately either say it won't run or download a specific
version for the XP environment.

It is possible. You must press control+alt+<-- or -- (left or right arrows) while the song is playing.>

I don’t think you can fast forward or rewind in iTunes

Only skip back and next tracks

 

If there is a way to scan through a track in iTunes then I would like to know it too

Hello,

 

I am using the latest version of nvda on my windows 10 64 bit laptop.

When using itunes, I am not able to rewind and fast forward tracks

using the keystrokes Control plus alt plus left/right arrow keys.

Could anyone help me resolve this issue?

 

Best,

 

Manoj

Re: NVDA and power points

Mike Sedmak
 

I used to be able to make text only formattted powerpoints very easily
using the outline view.

However since Powerpoint 2013 I can't get the outline view to work.

My main gripe with the standard view is that there isn't feedback on
indent level when making a bullted list.

You can add graphics, NVDA will tell you the X/Y coordinates and if
the image overlaps another object: this is very cool.

Tables are usable, but the row/column navigation I am used to from the
web or word doesn't appear to work in powerpoint. I have to count how
many "tabs" I have used to keep track of which column I am editing.

So, I would say it is usable; much better than 3 years ago.

YMMV,
Mike

Hi,
First I want to thank all those that answered my questions about
firefox. You all helped me out a lot.
I have a quick question about Microsoft Power point. How easy is it to
make one using a screen reader. I used to read them in college, but
I've never made one before.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: table navigation with NVDA in this webpage

Ok, thanks.

I answered your question before I read the second part of your message.  Yes, if you down arrow and see more to the table, the NVDA table movement commands aren't working correctly in the table.  As I said, if you use a different browser, that appears to solve the problem if you use one that allows for proper movement.
 
But to answer your questions about whether this is a browser problem or a screen-reader problem, I think, I'm not sure, that someone would have to look at the code who is technically knowledgeable about NVDA.  I suspect it’s a browser problem since the behavior appears to vary with the browser being used.

Well, I do hear that NVDA speak table with one row and one column.
problem 1
But, in the webpage, if I press t, it say table with one row and one
column, then I press t again , it speak one row and one column again; if
I press t again, NVDA said no more table. Actually, if they are each
cell regarded as one table, then pressing t again and again should
access more of the table.
problem 2
if NVDA really treat the table as one row and one column, then if I
press t the first time, then if I press down or left arrow, NVDA should
speak end of table and speak end of table and speak message about the
new table;
however If i press t the first time and press down arrow, NVDA said
column 2; press down arrow again said column 3, etc. which is incorrect
of what NVDA speak at the initial state where there is only one row and
one column.





Re: Add-on Updater 19.02 (mandatory update), Windows 10 App Essentials and SPL Studio add-ons retires standalone update facility as of today

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

Hi, I was just playing with this. I note on some nvda versions it seems not to update. I assume this was on purpose, but unfortunately, if you download the update from the web site and then run the updater it does update. I can see no down sides to this, ie no error noises etc, so wondered what was going on exactly. As you may know I have the current release as my working installed copy, which updated from the prompt
Several older versions including the last version an rc and the test version for the fast browse mode.
The latter three did not update though they flagged the update. but did update when presented with the file in a folder.
Oh and the special fast browse version still gives the error ding and is not seen, so I'd imagine it being in there is a bit academic!

Subject: [nvda] Add-on Updater 19.02 (mandatory update), Windows 10 App Essentials and SPL Studio add-ons retires standalone update facility as of today


Dear NVDA community,



In about an hour from now, two significant events will take place (well,
really three):



* Add-on Updater 19.02: this is a mandatory update for all Add-on
Updater users, as it prepares this ad-on to deal with a pull request that's
being reviewed (regarding new add-on API approach). I'm calling it
"mandatory" because for most add-ons, you need to use Add-on Updater to
update add-ons on the fly.
* Standalone update facility is going away from two add-ons: as of
today, version 19.02 of StationPlaylist Studio and Windows 10 App Essentials
will retire standalone update facility. You should know by now what this
means.



Other things to note:



* Windows 10 App Essentials 19.02 will now require Windows 10 Version
1803 (April 2018 Update) or later. If you need to use Windows 10 App
Essentials in Version 1709 (Fall Creators Update), you should download
19.01.2 from
https://github.com/josephsl/wintenApps/releases/download/19.01/wintenApps-19
.01.2.nvda-addon.
* Current development snapshots of StationPlaylist Studio add-on
supports ability to reload or reset add-on settings by pressing
Control+NVDA+R once or three times, respectively. This work will show up in
March for people using stable and long-term channels.
* Thanks to recent NVDA alpha snapshots, Action Center and time picker
workarounds that shipped with Windows 10 App Essentials for a number of
years is now part of NVDA itself. Notably, item status for various quick
actions in Action Center (including brightness value) will be announced, as
well as better support for time pickers such as alarm configuration in
Alarms and Clock app.



Cheers,

Joseph
