does nvda have its own keystroke to read footnote?

Aschalew Byness
 

Hi Friends?
When I read with NVDA, I want to read the content in the footnote as
well. Does nvda have keystroke of its own to read footnote like
alt+shift+e in jaws? the raven shortcut of word (alt+s, h, is a litle
bit time taking.

Without more information as others have said, it's hard to know exactly what is going on.
 
One other situation which came to mind - I have also seen a couple of SAPI 5 voices which were licensed to one program and would not work in other programs.  This caused problems if they were presented as the first or default SAPI 5 voice.  If that is the case, you would possibly need to uninstall the other program, or you might be able to press NVDA+control+R three times quickly to reset NVDA to factory defaults (as the default synthesizer for NVDA is either OneCore in Windows 10, or eSpeak-NG in earlier versions of Windows).

Re: setting NVDA modifier key

Gene
 

Changing to laptop layout doesn't affect whether the capslock is used as a modifier. It remains off unless you check the check box that you see when tabbing through the keyboard settings dialog. This check box appears whether you are in desktop or laptop layout. It is no harder or easier to turn capslock on or off regardless of which layout you are using.

The easiest way is to change to using the laptop keyboard layout as opposed to desktop.

You also have the option to add it to the existing Insert and NumPad Insert that are the two defaults for desktop keyboard layout with a checkbox.

All of this is in NVDA Settings [NVDA+N,P,S], Keyboard Pane [which can be found by hitting K for first letter Nav], then tabbing over and going through the settings. (Two tabs should land you on the checkbox to add Caps Lock to the NVDA Modifier Key collection if you are using Desktop keyboard layout.)

Re: Files and folders and drives; properties

Gene
 

There may be something different in Windows 10 about what is an object in that dialog. But I find it odd that you evidently get a message that says only applies to files in folder. How would whatever if generating the message know what you are doing and what the command applies to? I wonder if this is an NVDA generated message. What happens if you are in a folder and on a specific file? Do you get the same message when in properties for a single file?

My understanding is that the object that is the half-checked checkbox, acquires

supposed to work.

know it was all one object until I tried moving this way in the dialog while
staying in object navigation mode. I did so because it’s a little more
convenient not to issue the extra commands to go into review mode, then
return to object navigation. So I tried object navigation first in the
dialog.


Re: setting NVDA modifier key

 

Hi,

Nimer might be able to provide a more solid evidence, but based on discussions back then, the current laptop keyboard layout received mixed reception (it was also around the time just prior to me serving as list mod). But the definitive answer is that one must select caps lock key manually as modifier key (NVDA menu/Preferences/Settings/Keyboard).

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: setting NVDA modifier key

 

Hi,

As far as I can tell, NvDA doesn’t select a specific key as modifier key whenever you change keyboard layouts. It might have done that way in the past, but when the last big change to laptop keyboard layout took place (2013), the current behavior was in use then (unfortunately the bulk of user discussions on that change cannot be found easily unless someone archived it from Freelists).

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph, thanks for the correction.   Has it always been this way?  I could have sworn that both NVDA and JAWS used to do this, but I could very easily be conflating JAWS and NVDA in this regard.

It is nice that those checkboxes in the NVDA Keyboard settings allow you to mix and match as you see fit.

Re: Excel: Insuring that row headers read properly for NVDA (like they can be by JAWS)

Louis Maher
 

Hello Jessica,

The short tutorial below my signature showed up on one of the e-mail lists I monitor. It describes how too use the native Excel header reading option. It works on all screen readers.

Regards
Louis Maher
Phone: 713-444-7838
E-mail: ljmaher03@outlook.com
----
"Regardless of the screen reader being used, I strongly encourage the use of Excel's built-in column and row designation so that the burden is not on the
screen reader, nor any other screen reader user, to set this up if the workbook is handled by someone else.

What follows is an excellent tutorial, with background information, written by Alan Lemly on the Microsoft Office Accessibility Discussion Group regarding
how to do what I've just mentioned.
-------------------------
Reading Row and Column Headers Using Excel Defined Titles - A Tutorial
by Alan Lemly

Original text can be found at: 
https://groups.io/g/office-accessibility/topic/77311167
As someone else posted, Freedom Scientific has a document explaining the use of row and column headers in Excel at this website:
https://doccenter.freedomscientific.com/doccenter/doccenter/rs25c51746a0cc/2013-09-25_ExcelAndWordHeaders/02_HeadersInExcel.htm
While that site has an excellent explanation of the process, it has a major omission which prevents defined name titles from speaking when set up. As explained
at that site, users of Excel with JAWS have two different options if they'd like to create row and column headers that can be saved and accessed:
1.   Titles (i.e., row headers and column headers) created using the define name feature of Excel. This is the preferred method because these titles can
be created by those not even using JAWS and accessed at a later time by anyone with JAWS because they are saved with the spreadsheet.
2.   Titles created using JAWS quick settings dialog box. These titles are saved in a workbook-specific JSI file located in your personal settings folder,
a separate file that is created and has to accompany the workbook everywhere it goes.
This tutorial will explain option 1 since its titles can be saved with the workbook, transferred to another JAWS user, and does not require use of a separate
JSI file to work. What this method does require that is omitted from the Freedom Scientific explanation is a change to a default setting for Defined name
column and row titles override so that title reading of these defined ranges will occur. Therefore, the default override must be set to off instead of
on. You can access this setting by:
·        Pressing Insert + V to access the quick settings
·        Typing Title reading in the search box
·        Arrow down through the search results to the first one which is Define name column and row titles override and making sure it is set to off. By
default, mine was originally set to on which causes this preferred title reading method not to work.

My thanks to Ann Byrne of the 
main@jfw.groups.io
 list who originally explained defined titles to me and the need to turn off the override so they will read properly with JAWS.
I'm creating a sample Excel spreadsheet for this post to help with my explanation. I'll include a Dropbox download link at the end for those who want it.
This sample spreadsheet is for tracking books which I've read. It contains the following column headings beginning in cell A1 and continuing through cell
H1. 
Title
Author
Narrator
Date Finished
NLS Book Number
Book Length
Rating
Comments
This spreadsheet will end up containing many rows since I read a lot so when defining the range which will include the column and row headers, I'm going
to estimate the number of rows it should contain to include future expansion. I've made the first column be the title of the book since it makes since
as I arrow up and down the various rows in the sheet that the book title be announced as I land on a new row. The intersection of the column headers and
row headers that I want Excel to red as I navigate through the sheet is cell A1 so focus should be there when the defined range is created. To create the
range, with focus on cell A1:
1.   Press alt + m + m. This will place you on the ribbon bar on the define name button and you should press enter.
2.   You will be in a text box where you create the defined name of your column and row headers. I almost exclusively use both column and row headers for
most of my spreadsheets since they normally contain multiple rows and columns.  In this case, your defined name should begin with the word Title. If you
only want row headers, your defined name should begin with RowTitle. If you only want column headers, your defined name should begin with ColumnTitle.
You should have no spaces in the defined title text box so if your spreadsheet has multiple regions for which you want separate defined titles, I'd suggest
you use Region1, Region2, etc. after title with no spaces to distinguish your defined title ranges. Use a period to separate the name of the defined title
from the cell range comprising it. In my example spreadsheet, my columns run from A1 through H1 and I'm estimating 1000 rows so my defined title will be
TitleRegion1.A1.H1000. I could have omitted Region1 since I don't expect more regions on this sheet but included it for reference purposes.
3.   Press tab until you get to the Ok button and hit enter to complete the creation of your defined title range. If you later need to edit it, open the
range manager by pressing alt + m + n and select the range you want to edit and press alt + e. You will be placed in a text box where you can make changes.
After you've entered book info of the titles you've red, arrowing up and down in the sheet will result in JAWS reading the book title of the particular
row. Arrowing right and left through the various columns will result in JAWS reading the column heading of that column. Provided you turned off the title
reading of defined range override mentioned earlier in this document, your row and column title headers should be read by JAWS. Also, you can give a copy
of your workbook to anyone else using JAWS and those row and column headers will also be read for them provided they turn off the defined title reading
override.
Here is a Dropbox download link to Books read sample spreadsheet mentioned above:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/z16eb63i679t6b0/Books%20read%20for%20OA.xlsx?dl=1
I hope this helps.

Hello all,
I am working on a project to make a spreadsheet tool I use with a lot of coworkers accessible with NVDA. The spreadsheet has two individual columns, then a 3xunlimited table. I want NVDA to read both the column headers and the row headers (which are in column A even though they are outside of the table) when the table is navigated with tab.
Right now, I can do this successfully with JAWS. The column headers read automatically so long as I check the box that says "my table has headers". The row headers read correctly when I change the name of cell A1 (the start of the first row) to "Title". NVDA reads the column headers in the same spreadsheet, but it does not read the row headers.
Is NVDA limited in this regard, or is there a way to make it read the spreadsheet the same way JAWS is reading it?
Thanks for any advice you may have to offer.
Best,

Re: Could not load the sapi5 synthesizer.

 

From your description, this is very unlikely to be an NVDA-related issue, but lies instead with Windows 10 itself.

Try, in order, and stop after any step that fixes the issue:

1. Using SFC (System File Checker) and DISM (Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management) to Repair Windows 8 & 10

2. Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

That might not always be the case. I’ve had it say that, and in some cases all I have to do is click “fit to pate” and the text appears. Try that first.

 

Good luck.

I agree with Gene.  The most likely problem is that this PDF so happens to be an image-scanned PDF without any text layer associated with it.  They are out there by the millions, particularly for older scanned PDF files.

Either try NVDA OCR or download the file and use whatever OCR processing you may prefer to add a text layer to the entire document.  The latter is easier if the document is long, at least to me, or if it's something you intend to refer to later.
