Agreed. Also, this screen is unresponsive sometimes. You'd think Microsoft
would fix these issues. Someday, perhaps.

Hmm, I would suggest though if this is a common problem that Microsoft or
their sellers should be onto this andsorting it out.It almost sounds like a
dodgy connection somewhere in the unit. I remember some years back finding
that a Tashiba porrtable laptop had this, and in the end it turned out to be
a ribbon cable connection flexing round a 90 degree bend and eveentually
build up of oxide made it make intermittent contact. Nothing the user could
do about it, it was a hardware issue.

Hey guys, Molly here.

I'm not looking to start a big discussion here.

I just want to point out that these tablet issues seem not to have to do
anything with Nvda. I think these issues are with the machine itself. In
addition to keyboard issues, the touchscreen occasionally becomes
unresponsive. Holding down the volume up/power button for ten seconds and
turning the device back on seems to fix things. However I would not
recommend the surface go to anyone at the moment. I looked online, and I
discovered that these keyboard/touchscreen issues are quite common.

I'll admit, it's disappointing.

Hi,

Yes, this is Joseph Lee, the current developer of SPL add-on speaking, and yes, I’m always here (taking more of a background role at the moment due to one or two important projects I’m working on).

The bug Keao is talking about: as Roger pointed out, you can reduce column content verbosity. This is done via Add-on settings (Alt+NVDA+0 from Studio window)/Column announcements/Manage. First, tell NvDA to not announce columns as shown on screen (the first checkbox from Column Announcements category), then click Manage button. Then go through list of columns and uncheck the box for the column you wish to suppress and/or manipulate a list where you can set column announcement order. Click OK, and from main settings window, click OK to save changes.

Note that column announcement settings are show specific (termed “broadcast profiles”). In other words, you can change what columns will be suppressed and the order in which they will be announced on a show to show basis (or in some cases, while you are not on the air versus while you are broadcasting).

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: New Member

 

Hi,
There is an ongoing research project (investigated by at least two NVDA developers, not me) that seeks to use a different means of communication between Office applications and NVDA to speed things up (to those keeping an eye on NVDA code changes and issue database should know what I'm talking about). Preliminary results show performance improvements in certain situations when using Word and Outlook, and in some cases, fixes some long-standing bugs.

Joseph

Click OK, and from main settings window, click OK to save changes.

Note that column announcement settings are show specific (termed “broadcast profiles”). In other words, you can change what columns will be suppressed and the order in which they will be announced on a show to show basis (or in some cases, while you are not on the air versus while you are broadcasting).

I know there is a way to silence that stuff but I don't remember right now. I'm getting ready for my big 12 hour show so I can't look it up right now but there are several others here who use that add on and Joseph may be in here too and he is the main developer of it.

I’ve been using the add on for a while and it’s great!

I just wish I could silence the speech when it comes to the columns like duration and stuff like that.

Just saw your post on the NVDA group.  I'm almost sure you are the Keao who is often in the Dementia Radio chat.  I've been using NVDA exclusively since 2012.  I find it will do anything JAWS can, and in some cases, it can do some things JAWS can't do and many things it can do better thanks to all the great add ons available.  There is an SPL add on that does everything the JAWS scripts can do and several other little tricks that the script doesn't know how to do.


Hope you will enjoy using NVDA and ask anything you want on the group and I'm sure you'll find the answer.

Hi,
First, to Keao: ah yes, nice to see you here.
As for Office and NVDA, all I can say is that NVDA developers are also worried about performance and collaboration issues between NVDA and Office, and we're looking into how to make things better for you.

It’s on by default.  I would wait for Joseph Lee’s tutorial or you can look at the user guide if you learn well as it presents the discussion.  I don’t think most people would learn it well that way.  You have to learn commands and what they mean.

If you use control home, you should move to the beginning of the page.  Home moves to the beginning of the line.  This should happen in any standard edit field.  Browse mode follows all standard windows movement commands used in standard edit fields.

Is there also a way you can make it tell you that a webpage is loaded, I can hear the tones, and all, but the pages load fast when you use chrome.

Hi,
If talking about Office 365 version, it is broken (yet again) due to changes made to the spell checker interface from Word.

One thing that does need to be addressed in office is the spellcheck function and NVDA. With some of the comertial products, if you pressed f7, they would say, "not in dictumary, followed by, spell the word, then, they would say, suggestions, followed by, speak the suggestions, then spell the suggestions. I think that functionality needs to be incorporated into NVDA. Thanks, Sky.
