The following is not aimed at Jane, or any individual in particular, but not only "would it help," it's essential information.

It is not adequate when asking for technical support, on anything, to be vague about what's in use.  "The latest" is vague.  NVDA 2020.1, Windows 10 Version 1909 Build 18363.836, Outlook 2016, and the like is not.

There are times, and while they're not for every answer they're plenty frequent, where the ability of an assistant to offer the correct information hinges on knowing exactly what's being used.

So, dear members, it is definitely worth creating a small text file that includes your operating system and software versions so that you can copy and paste same into the beginning of topics when needed to establish the context precisely.  You can either offer it up front, or have it requested down the line, and some assistants won't request, they'll just move on.

Jane,

 

What a day you seem to be having!

 

First of all, there was no attachment in the email. Could you try to send it to me again, please?

 

I think it would help to know what versions of your software you are using.

  1. What version of Windows? You can get this by typing Winver in the start menu.
  2. 2 What version of NVDA?
  3. What version of Outlook?
  4. What version of JAWS?

 

I have never had any problem with downloading and installing NVDA. I wonder if your Microsoft helper installed an old version?

 

I did not sign in to Github to get the information that I sent you. If you just click on the link in that email, you should find yourself on those messages.

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Good morning, (or whatever time it is where you are, I’m not really sure).  Anyway, Thanks so much for writing back.  I’ll check out that github thing, never heard of it.  And I’ll send you both spreadsheets so you can have a look.  The one that’s called my books data base a-l is the one where half the columns don’t read properly, with crossing by night showing as “title”, and suspense showing instead of the column title genre.  The spreadsheet called my books data base m-z works fine.  And now I’m having trouble with NVDA and Outlook, where I’m happily typing along and NVDA freezes and when I get it back I’ve lost the message I’ve been typing!  I’m back in Jaws now, never thought I’d have to do that!  Things were fine until yesterday when I had a guy from Microsoft accessibility reinstall my NVDA in hopes that that would fix the excel issue.  This has been a struggle, I can tell you. 

 

Anyway, attached are the two spreadsheets, see what you think.  And I do have whatsapp, so maybe if you want, we could talk that way.  We Excel people need to stick together!  My mobile number is 301-922-2994.  Those of us in the United States are so provincial, that I haven’t a clue about a country code, sorry.

Great to meet you, jane!

 

I appreciate the difficulty with wading through full data in the cell before getting the feedback on which column is in focus. I believe there is pressure on the programmers to bring in a change to allow the user to choose whether to have column title before the data or after.

 

Have a look through this discussion on Github:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/4629

 

NVDA is an ongoing project and bits are being developed all the time. It seems there was early pressure to give the data before the column title but that might have been because cell coordinates were also getting in the way.  It is a good idea to get familiar with Github so that you can raise issues with the developers and build a case within the community of developers and users.

 

I am puzzled by your problem on the second worksheet. Could you forward it to me privately  at my email below and let me see what is happening? I promise to destroy it after I understand what is happening and will, of course, keep it private.

 

There is no logical reason why the column title would drop to the second row without actually being assigned to that row before the first row was inserted. Guessing is futile! I would need to run through the actual table.

 

Alternatively, you could ring my mobile in Facetime or WhatsApp and I could walk through the issue with you with NVDA turned on and speaking.

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Hi Cearbhall,

Thanks so much for writing, it’s so great to talk to someone who uses Excel as much as I do!  Let me see if I can explain my problem:

 

I have two spreadsheets that are the same, except that one has books a-l and the other has books m-z, each is over ten thousand records.  One spreadsheet reads fine, with the titles in row 1 and the data starting in row 2.  In the other spreadsheet, moving across, some of the column titles read fine, but about half of them, the NVDA reads the data from row 2, the first line of data, as the title.  I followed what the user guide said and put my cursor in b1 and hit insert-shift-C, and that worked for most of my spreadsheets, but not for this one.  So I plunked the data from the bad spreadsheet onto the bottom of the good one, so now I have one spreadsheet with 29207 records in it, and the column titles read fine.

 

My problem now is that I wish I could get NVDA to read the column title before the data instead of after it.  Is there any way to do that?

 

Thanks so much for your help!

 

Happy Excelling!

 

Jane

Hi Jane,

 

I am a keen user of Excel with NVDA. I use it almost every day. I would be happy to answer any queries you have.

 

I wonder exactly what problem you are finding with column headings?

 

I note that you start your columns one column in and one row down from the top. That is no problem. Place your cursor on cell b2 and press NVDA+shift+c. This will fix b2 as the start of the column headings. If there is a break in row 2, the column title will stop being spoken with the last column before the break. Simply move the cursor on row 2 to the right until you get to the first filled cell after the break and press control+shift+c again. This will set the whole row to be the next set of column headings until the next empty cell in row 2. Repeat this until all the column cells are enabled as column headings. Each column will be echoed even if you are moving on the 1048576th row of the table.

 

The trick is to watch the gaps.

 

Let me know if this solves your difficulty and let me know if I can answer any more questions for you! I write complex formulas and macros with no problem using NVDA. It is a great product!

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

I don’t use row titles, just column titles in row 1.  I usually have column A blank, just because that’s how I did it in WindowEyes.  So my data starts in B2, and goes from b2 to p17288.  Not sure what else I can do at this point.  I’d sure hate to have to go back to jaws, but if I can’t read the column titles of my big spreadsheets, I may have to.

Close all office applications, hit the windows key, type programs and features, hit enter on remove applications, tab to the search field, enter office, tab to the list of programs, arrow down to Microsoft office, hit enter, tab to modify, and do an online repair from that point.  You might call the disability help desk to help you do this.

 

After the repair, you might have to put your Excel patch back.

Stop NVDA from automatically reading media on webpages

Brian Crabtree
 

I don't know if this will always do what you want, but Microsoft Edge has "Immersive Reader" mode, which strips extraneous stuff from many websites and shows only the essential content.

The caveat is that not all websites allow you to use the reader at present, although this may change - there is a change request in for that to be implemented.

The old Edge has a shortcut of Ctrl plus Shift plus R to toggle reader mode.

The new Chrome based Edge uses F 9.

But I have two questions:  How do I access attachments in Outlook.  Typically, when on a message with an attachment, I’d shift tab to the attachment and hit enter on it, but that doesn’t seem to work with NVDA.

 

My other pressing issue is reading titles with Excel.  I live in Excel, so this could be a deal-breaker.  With smaller spreadsheets, I’ve gotten the titles to read pretty well, but I have some spreadsheets that have 17,000 or more rows, and NVDA reads the first row of data sometimes as column titles.  Is there a limit on the size spreadsheet NVDA can comfortably handle?

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

                Hi

Yes, it works fine.  Just copy the text to the clipboard on the controlling computer then run the command.  Switch to the controlled computer and paste the text into whereever you want.

 

Cheers

Re: Editing an Excel cell with a Braille display

Jane Carona <jane.e.carona@...>
 

Oh wonderful, Louis, thanks so much! That worked like a charm!  Now I can edit cells as usual!  Thanank you!

Now today’s problem is that when I’m in outlook, typing a message, NVDA freezes and I have to hit control-alt-N to get it back, and sometimes I lose the message I was typing.  It worked fine till I had a guy from Microsoft accessibility yesterday who wanted to reinstall my NVDA to fix the Excel problem, and ever since then it’s done this.  I even had to go back into Jaws to tyhpe a message today!  But I haven’t given up yet.

Hello Jane,

 

For Excel, try this.

You can try unchecking the box which says “allow editing directly in cells”.  In Excel 365, do this:

Open an Excel spreadsheet. 

Type alt + f. Up arrow to options, hit enter. Down arrow to advanced. Tab until you find the box which says “allow editing directly in cells. Uncheck that

box. Shift + Tab until you reach OK. Hit enter.

 

As for the capitalization pitch indicator, I have noticed that some voices do not show the capitalization shift change.  For this reason, in the Speech option, I have chosen One Core Voices, and I use Microsoft Zira.

That voice does give me a capitalization pitch change.

I promise this is the last question for today!  But I notice that when I want to edit a cell in Excel, and hit F2, my braille display (a very old Focus 80) doesn’t track, and the cursor routing keys don’t work and my edits don’t show up until I hit enter.  Do I have some setting wrong?  Or is this a problem with NVDA and the Focus.  Also, my capital alerts aren’t working, with no differentiation for capitalized letters, even though I have it set in settings to notify me with pitch of any capitalization changes.

 

I’ve been playing with this most of the day now, and I think I’m going off to read a book.  I bet everyone’s breathing a sigh of relief!

Re: New to NVDA, questions about Outlook and Excel with NVDA

Jane Carona <jane.e.carona@...>
 

Good morning, (or whatever time it is where you are, I’m not really sure).  Anyway, Thanks so much for writing back.  I’ll check out that github thing, never heard of it.  And I’ll send you both spreadsheets so you can have a look.  The one that’s called my books data base a-l is the one where half the columns don’t read properly, with crossing by night showing as “title”, and suspense showing instead of the column title genre.  The spreadsheet called my books data base m-z works fine.  And now I’m having trouble with NVDA and Outlook, where I’m happily typing along and NVDA freezes and when I get it back I’ve lost the message I’ve been typing!  I’m back in Jaws now, never thought I’d have to do that!  Things were fine until yesterday when I had a guy from Microsoft accessibility reinstall my NVDA in hopes that that would fix the excel issue.  This has been a struggle, I can tell you. 

 

Anyway, attached are the two spreadsheets, see what you think.  And I do have whatsapp, so maybe if you want, we could talk that way.  We Excel people need to stick together!  My mobile number is 301-922-2994.  Those of us in the United States are so provincial, that I haven’t a clue about a country code, sorry.

Great to meet you, jane!

 

I appreciate the difficulty with wading through full data in the cell before getting the feedback on which column is in focus. I believe there is pressure on the programmers to bring in a change to allow the user to choose whether to have column title before the data or after.

 

Have a look through this discussion on Github:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/4629

 

NVDA is an ongoing project and bits are being developed all the time. It seems there was early pressure to give the data before the column title but that might have been because cell coordinates were also getting in the way.  It is a good idea to get familiar with Github so that you can raise issues with the developers and build a case within the community of developers and users.

 

I am puzzled by your problem on the second worksheet. Could you forward it to me privately  at my email below and let me see what is happening? I promise to destroy it after I understand what is happening and will, of course, keep it private.

 

There is no logical reason why the column title would drop to the second row without actually being assigned to that row before the first row was inserted. Guessing is futile! I would need to run through the actual table.

 

Alternatively, you could ring my mobile in Facetime or WhatsApp and I could walk through the issue with you with NVDA turned on and speaking.

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Hi Cearbhall,

Thanks so much for writing, it’s so great to talk to someone who uses Excel as much as I do!  Let me see if I can explain my problem:

 

I have two spreadsheets that are the same, except that one has books a-l and the other has books m-z, each is over ten thousand records.  One spreadsheet reads fine, with the titles in row 1 and the data starting in row 2.  In the other spreadsheet, moving across, some of the column titles read fine, but about half of them, the NVDA reads the data from row 2, the first line of data, as the title.  I followed what the user guide said and put my cursor in b1 and hit insert-shift-C, and that worked for most of my spreadsheets, but not for this one.  So I plunked the data from the bad spreadsheet onto the bottom of the good one, so now I have one spreadsheet with 29207 records in it, and the column titles read fine.

 

My problem now is that I wish I could get NVDA to read the column title before the data instead of after it.  Is there any way to do that?

 

Thanks so much for your help!

 

Happy Excelling!

 

Jane

Hi Jane,

 

I am a keen user of Excel with NVDA. I use it almost every day. I would be happy to answer any queries you have.

 

I wonder exactly what problem you are finding with column headings?

 

I note that you start your columns one column in and one row down from the top. That is no problem. Place your cursor on cell b2 and press NVDA+shift+c. This will fix b2 as the start of the column headings. If there is a break in row 2, the column title will stop being spoken with the last column before the break. Simply move the cursor on row 2 to the right until you get to the first filled cell after the break and press control+shift+c again. This will set the whole row to be the next set of column headings until the next empty cell in row 2. Repeat this until all the column cells are enabled as column headings. Each column will be echoed even if you are moving on the 1048576th row of the table.

 

The trick is to watch the gaps.

 

Let me know if this solves your difficulty and let me know if I can answer any more questions for you! I write complex formulas and macros with no problem using NVDA. It is a great product!

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

I don’t use row titles, just column titles in row 1.  I usually have column A blank, just because that’s how I did it in WindowEyes.  So my data starts in B2, and goes from b2 to p17288.  Not sure what else I can do at this point.  I’d sure hate to have to go back to jaws, but if I can’t read the column titles of my big spreadsheets, I may have to.
