Hi Vaibhav

If Word is set to show all paragraph markers, toggle this setting with Control + Shift + 8. Ensure you use eight on the number row.

Cheers

Ben

This is probably a settings change in Word. There is a short cut command to toggle the command on and off but I haven't found it so far. I have Word starter on my machine, not a full version of Word and it is an older version of the limited word. I can probably give you instructions that will match your version of Word based on this program but I'll see what others have to say. In my version, the item controlling this behavior is in the paragraph grouping of the home ribbon. Its a button for showing all marks or some wording like that.

Make the Most of Braille with NVDA with the Braillists Foundation, Tuesdays 26 January and 9 February at 7:30 PM

Matthew Horspool
 

Hello everyone,

Would you like to make the most of your refreshable braille display with NVDA on Windows? Are you looking to learn more about how braille can be used to make effective presentations? If so, the Braillists Foundation can help!

This coming Tuesday (26 January), join us on Zoom at 7:30 PM in the UK for a session entitled "Using Braille on Windows". You will find out how to pair a windows PC with a braille display, which screen readers support braille output and some tips and tricks for using braille output. As part of this, we will also discuss the Braille Extender add-on for NVDA.

Then, on Tuesday 9 February, we have a session entitled "Using Braille as a Presentation Tool", which will cover using a braille display with Microsoft PowerPoint and Google Slides. We'll guide you through how braille output works with these applications and the ways in which braille output can enable you to deliver more effective presentations.

The sessions are completely free of charge, will last an hour (ending at 8:30 PM in the UK), and there will be plenty of time for questions. If you'd like to join us, please register at: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZwoceivqz8rGtbEERfYGlXFSR2eIqx-oc9o

If this time isn't convenient for you, fear not: the session will be recorded and made available at: https://www.braillists.org/media

It will also be published via our Braillecast podcast – simply search for "Braillecast" in your podcast client of choice, or ask your smart speaker to "play Braillecast". We are also available on the Victor Reader range of DAISY players and the internet radios from British Wireless for the Blind.

Registering for these sessions also entitles you to attend other sessions in our Tuesday evening series, which are all led by experts in their fields. For more information, please visit: https://www.braillists.org/events

If you have any questions about these sessions or are struggling to register, please email help@...

If you would prefer to attend by telephone, the Meeting ID is: 885 6175 4102

We very much look forward to welcoming you to a Braillists event soon – and if you know someone else who's not on this list, but who might nonetheless appreciate hearing about these sessions, please spread the word!

Best wishes,

Matthew Horspool

The statement was, "the Dictation Bridge Add-On."

Like all add-ons, the ones you've installed are handled by the NVDA Add-Ons Manager.  This does not appear to be an "officially vetted" add-on.  See:  

Dictation Bridge

If you've never sought this out, you don't have it.  I reported that I've got the same non-speaking of formulas behavior with 2020.beta4 and I know that I don't have the Dictation Bridge Add-On, though I have not as yet tried restarting with add-ons disabled to see if it's likely triggered by some add-on rather than NVDA itself.

Hello Everyone

A few days ago I wrote to the list to say that having installed MS
Office 2016 NVDA did not speak when I typed Excel formulas.

Following advice from Quentin, I have found that if I disable the Dictation
Bridge addon the formulas speak.

So, if anyone else has the same problem, it is worth seeing if you have
Dictation Bridge installed and disabling it.

Re: solution for reading chats in Zoom?

Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

You are exactly right. I have no problem reading chats by opening the
chat panel, but how will I know to check it if NVDA doesn't tell me
anything when chats come in?

You can read the chats with ctrl+f1, ctrl+f2, etc. I'm not sure how
to copy info from a chat, though.












Re: solution for reading chats in Zoom?

Sim Kah Yong
 

My experience is that NVDA will read out the chat when I am in the main room, but will fail to do that when I am in breakout room.

My solution is to call out the chat window with Alt + H. This will deal with the problem of NVDA not reading out the chat.

You can use the add-on Speech History to read each chat that has been read out or copy each chat to the clipboard.

The hotkeys are :

Shift + F11

Shift + F12

F12 to copy

Hope this help.

Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

There was recently a thread about reading chats in Zoom, but it didn't
seem there was a proper solution, and until Sunday, I forgot I was
having the same problem. NVDA used to read chat messages to me
automatically, but I think it quit doing that for me in about May. How
do I restore this functionality? I've noticed with the latest version,
NVDA now reads recording alerts.

Re: Issue with addon updater

 

Hi,
This is due to the outdated records from add-ons website. At the moment there is a delay in posting add-on updates due to an ongoing add-ons system redesign.
