Re: Broken file list in open/save dialogs?

Damien Garwood
 

Hi Richard,
Since I also have the same problem in the "save as" dialog, is there anything you could suggest for saving new files that I create?
Cheers,
Damien.

Re: Interruption

 

To be honest, I have noticed that laptop keyboards have gotten harder and harder to use.

Mouse or no mouse.

There is a way of typing so you don't rest your hands on the pad but a lot of keys are half keys.

I don't care for laptop boards but that could also be tdue to the fact that while at home I use a gaming board and don't need to bother about the laptop.

The only way that idea makes sense is if a mouse pad is active on a laptop or if something is moving a physical mouse connected to a computer.  In that case, turning mouse tracking off won't help to a meaningful extent.  The mouse pad must either be turned off or physically blocked by something covering it or the physical mouse must be disconnected or placed in such a way that it is no longer changing its position.  Not doing so will cause loss of focus as the mouse pad moves focus to wherever it is moved, such as to the task bar or desktop or somewhere else.  Turning mouse tracking off won't solve that problem.

Press NVDA+ctrl+m and uncheck Enable mouse tracking.
See if that fixes it. My guess is you're moving the mouse, and it's reading.

As far as I know, there is no application specific dictionary and no way to do what you want.  of course, someone may know something I don't know but I know of no such ability.

Is there a way to get NVDA to not voice a particular word? I want it to not say title when it sees it when I use Google Chrome to do a search.

Braille displays missing from "Braille Display" combo box

Nicolai Svendsen
 

Hi!

I never paid attention to this until I actually had to use it with another display. Hopefully someone else has had this happen and has a fix.

I have a BrailleSensePolaris, and have to use it with NVDA. I've gone ahead and installed the driver so I can use it via USB as well (HIMS link in users guide seems broken, at least I got nothing out of that), and it refuses to show up. In fact, displays like Freedom Scientific aren't showing up either, even though I've used it with other software before. Weirdly, I grabbed a laptop at work with nothing but clean Windows 10 1909, launched NVDA, and more displays showed up on that particular computer than has been the case on the one I am currently using, even without me installing anything else except NVDA.

What gives? Not seeing HIMS at all, in fact. Display pairs fine with Bluetooth, NVDA just doesn't show it. Running NVDA 2019.2.1. I see another thread on this exact issue a year ago, and no solution was forthcoming in that topic.

Dear all,

 

we are still in process of audio editing of NVDACon sessions and realized we need help to finish the work as fast as possible.

 

If you are familiar with normalizing volume, labeling, removing crackling noise, removing echo and improving audio quality in general, please write me an email and I will send you files which still need editing.

Note that I will send raw flac files to avoid quality losses.

 

If you want to have an impression of the quality that we would like to have, here is a link where you can find the finalized files so far.

Re: Broken file list in open/save dialogs?

Damien Garwood
 

Hi Richard,
That worked. Thanks.
The interesting thing there is, QWS has a prompt in the installer asking if you wanted it to be the default program to open MIDI files. I said yes, but it didn't work. Hence the reason I never tried the "open with" setting. So that obviously has a different way of associating files. That's a handy tip to know. Thanks.
Cheers,
Damien.

Issue With Word from 365 Edition

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

The go to page feature in Microsoft Word from the 365 version seems to be broken.

If you press control + G you are placed in the edit field for page number.  If you then type the page number and tab to and click Go to button, nothing changes. You are still at the top of the document.

Has anyone else seen this and is there a fix?
