Re: Editing an Excel cell with a Braille display

Louis Maher
 

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!

Jane,

 

I dont use a Braille display with the computer so I cannot help with that. However, it might be a help to know that I find that NVDA does not echo my typing in a cell that I am editing until I backspace /delete a character, such as a space, for example. Then the cursor key is tracked and speaks fully. I can imagine that once NVDA is activated in this way,, your Focus should get some stimulus from NVDA.

 

You might also find it useful to know that if NVDA is silent after editing a cell or any other activity, pressing the left alt key twice will get NVDA back into focus and it will speak everything as usual.

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Hi. Responding publicly as others may also be interested in this question.

The Eloquence voices from NVDA work well on the systems which I've used with it. I did not purchase the SAPI5 voices but instead purchased the Eloquence/Vocalizer addon from Code Factory, which is designed to exclusively work with NVDA. I am not familiar with a voice named Bryan.

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

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

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,

Hello! In private and to the group.


You can use the SAPI5 version of Eloquence or the NVDA add-on sold by CodeFactory.

As the NVDA add-on have a bad sound on some systems, I recommend to test the add-on or buy the SAPI5 version...

Re: Stop NVDA from automatically reading media on webpages

 

In Chrome, Reader View is an Add-On at this time.

Personally I use an ad-blocker in every browser I use except Brave, which does ad-blocking as part of its functionality.  If I have a site that refuses to let me in when the web browser is active, I either disable it for the page I'm trying to get at or the site itself, and that's only if its a site I know I have reason to use repeatedly.  Otherwise I simply take the site off of my list of sites I'll use.  As far as I'm concerned, no site has the right to dictate to me whether or not I can use an ad blocker.  If web ads were as innocuous as print ads are (to the sighted) where you can just jump right over them that would be one thing, but they're not.  They blink, scroll, flash, and sometimes even have sound associated with them.  They make using the web sheer hell for a great many, and I don't want to have to deal with them.

Websites have every right to include ad content, but they have no right to make me view it.

Re: Stop NVDA from automatically reading media on webpages

JM Casey
 

I sometimes use “reader view” in Firefox. It helps a lot. I *think8 chrome has something similar built in, though it might not be as easy to get to – if it doesn’t, there are definitely extensions you can try for it. If you find yourself on a page where there is annoying “dynamic” content getting in the way of your experience, activate reader mode, and it does its best to strip away a lot of this content. When you’re done, leave reader view and return to normal interactions. It usually works pretty well, though there may be instances where you lose a bit of valuable content too – that hasn’t actually happened to me often.

 

In Firefox, I just press f9 to activate this mode. It’s also on the toolbar.

Hello

I'm not sure the subject line accurately describes my issue, but it seems like there are webpages today that have content that automatically refreshes and changes. \unitone \left(  \r2\mathbb{\usepckage{times 9 it appears to be used for advertising or promoting a website's publications.   NVDA }}i\aght) automatically reads this content, and it often interrupts my reading of the articles themselves. Here is an example of a webpage: https://www.lovefood.com/recipes/60477/denis-cotters-black-bean-soup-with-chocolate-and-chillies

As I tried to read the recipe, the screenreader is also reading some sort of a flash object that is promoting other articles. Is there a way to stop this? It seems like either I should be able to stop the screenreader from announcing this, or I should be able to stop Google Chrome from displaying it. I have used ad blockers in the past, but it seems like many webpages now will not allow you to access their resources if you are using an ad blocker, so I wonder if there is some other tool that I could use.

Re: Address for NVDA support

Jane Carona <jane.e.carona@...>
 

Yes, that was the first thing I did, read the section on Excel.  And I followed the steps just as they were outlined there.  It worked for the other spreadsheets.

 

But I have now come to a solution:  I have two very large spreadsheets, so big that I had to split the one big one into 2, so one has books a-l and the other has books m-z.  The m-z data base reads the titles just fine, but the a-l one, about half the titles don’t read correctly.  So now that I have this new fast powerful computer with Windows 10 on it, I put my spreadsheet back together, and put the data from the spreadsheet that didn’t read correctly onto the end of the one that did.  So now I have a spreadsheet that goes from a1 through p29207 and the columns read fine.  So no need to revert to Jaws!  But I really wish NVDA would let you put the column title before the cell contents, but I don’t see anyway to do that.  So that’s one major hurdle accomplished!  Thanks so much to everyone for your advice.

            To what are you making reference here?  I ask because NVAccess does not, to my knowledge and according to their own support pages, offer official e-mail support.  They point to online resources, of which this is one, but while we're closely associated with NVAccess we're not really "owned by" them.

Jane,

           NVDA can and does read row and/or column titles.  Please take the time to do some research and playing around before throwing in the towel!

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.

NVAccess does not do e-mail support.  See this page for online support options:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda-community/wiki/Connect
and this one for paid telephone support:  https://www.nvaccess.org/product/nvda-telephone-support/

Is this spreadsheet set up with title columns (for the respective rows) and title rows (for the respective columns) either in Excel itself, which is my preferred method, or in NVDA?   This has been discussed many times on this group.  Searching the NVDA Group Archive

When I use the Groups.io search on [Excel title row column] virtually every message that comes back (many of which are mine, and many others which are not) come up immediately.
