Re: NVDA and Focus40 or other Braille displays

Jason White
 

It mostly works, especially if you install the BrailleExtender add-on to provide translation table switching and a myriad of additional braille display commands.

If I suspend the laptop, resume from suspend mode, and log in, the Focus display is lost immediately after log-in and I have to re-initialize the driver with NVDA+k (a command provided by BrailleExtender).

Other than that and some translation table issues, it works very well.

Hi,

I'm sorry if this has been discussed before and I'm rehashing it, but a

I've some friends here that work with NVDA and FOCUS40 and it works fine for them.
Good luck

It sounds like you need to turn off the preview pane. That is under view/lay-out menu.

PDF t9 Word keeping footnotes

Akshaya Choudhary
 

Sorry for spamming guys! I'm new to assisting technology.
Is there a way to convert a PDF to word and keep all the footnotes intact? In such a way that they can be accessed with alt plus S, H, command. 
Need to work on a book for school project but can't access the PDF properly. And when I convert it to word in Abby fine reader, footnotes become the part of the flow text. This makes them hard to identify with NVDA. 
Hoping someone can help

Regards

Rosemarie,

           Are you, by any chance, arrowing down through the list of messages in your inbox?    If so, double check that your preview pane (or whatever Thunderbird calls it) is not turned on.

           The default settings in Thunderbird will mark messages as read after something like 5 seconds of being displayed in the preview pane or being opened in a separate tab for reading.  If the preview pane has accidentally been turned on this could be your problem when you slowly cruise through your inbox.  I believe that F8 will toggle the preview pane off and on.  You can also check View menu, Layout, Message Pane.

Re: Problem with Skype

P. Otter
 

hi, i'm afraid you have had the same problem as I have had.
I'm using windows 10 64 bit and skype the last version.
but when someone cals me, skype keeps ringing also when I've already answered the call.

when I hang up, skype keeps ringing!!!
the only way to stop it is in the taskmanager or reboot my computer!
what to do to solve this problem:
1 now you have installed an older version.
when you try to log in, skype geves you the message can not connect.
what to do,
go in skype in the menu, by pressing alt.
go to help
and there search for look for new version or such.
download and install that new version.
be carefull, there are checkboxes you have to uncheck, else there is a change in all of your using browsers, your homepage will be changed etc.
so it's better to uncheck that checkboxes.
with the new version, you can log in as usual.
when you've done, close skype.
now take your older version of skype.
now you install that older version, without remove the new version!!!!!
the skype installer tells you that the version you ar installing an older version is.
continu anyway?
it is yes.
remember, leave that older version somewhere in the download folder.
you will definitely need that in the future, I explain why.
skype will now start and log in normally!
and now with the older version that has nothing to do with.
you have to save the installation file, because it can go well for months but then suddenly, he can no longer log in.
then do the same trick again.
then it works again.

hope this helps

Hi


it will not do it if they have already been read. Only if they have not
been read.


But that is the section if you want to make it longer after you open it
before it goes to read.

Recognising highlighted text in word document by NVDA

Akshaya Choudhary
 

Can NVDA recognise highlighted text in a document? And can it be navigated as swiftly as we navigate other elements in browse mode? Like jumping from heading to heading. 
This function is especially required for word.

Cheers

if you wish to read the highlighted text in a word document, can you jump from highlighted text to highlighted text, like you can do with headings?
