Thank you very much Joseph for your reply.

I know the option, “Handle keys from other applications”. I've experimented with it a bit. Both checked or unchecked it doesn't solve the issue.

If I leave it unchecked, once pressed the "delete" button, no audio feedback.
If I leave it checked, once pressed the "delete" button, NVDA reads just one letter of the deleted syllable.

Anyway, I have to leave it unchecked, otherwise I encounter other problems, the main one is that typing punctuation stops the voice. While I need that punctuation doesn't stop the voice and also it isn't red. I can obtein this only if I leave that option unchecked.

I'll contact the steno application developers and ask if they can contact you.

Google always seems to send back an email to the sender every time you send one, but if this was the case then I'd not expect to see any duplicates from anyone on the list but yourself.
I'll pass this over to other Tbird experts, but are you using Imap or pop3 collection? If its Imap then not a lot you can do about it, but Pop3 should be able to be filtered by rules you set up so the  returns go to another folder of your choice.
Note though that I find it very handy to use imap for looking at the raw incoming stream and the spam folders.

nvda is silence when use a few hours

特種兵
 

hi all:

  A few days ago I went to a workplace to deal with a visually impaired staff on nvda problems.
  This is the case, he usually use vocalizer as a speech synthesizer, after the computer is used for a period of time,
May be a few hours, or resume from protection mode to work for an hour or two, nvda can not read aloud, the operation is normal, but in this case,
He can not load any speech synthesizer, including espeak ng.
  Even if you restart nvda can not solve this problem until you restart your computer.
Because of his work in the bank, which is very stringent security, including no external network, nor can any file out of the company,
So I can not get nvda.log slowly study or paste it for your reference.
  Check the status of the nvda.log in the field, some of nvwave shows some errors, such as 88 lines and so on.
  I think this situation happens once or twice a day. I do not know whether these experts have any opinions or opinions on this situation.
  His nvda version is 2017.3 operating system is win7 32 bit.
  I would have liked him first to work with another synthesizer to see if this would still be the case, but he told me he was used to the sound of this speech synthesizer.
  Thank you for your advice

Hello.

Some days ago an Spanish user asked NVDA.es <http://nvda.es/> about the NVDA support for Lotus Notes, a mail client by IBM that she uses for her work.
She's said that when she opens Lotus Notes, NVDA doesn’t report anything.
Have anyone used Lotus Notes with NVDA? Any tip or tutorial to give this user? None of us have never used this program because it’s very old, in fact we thought that only a few companies would continue using Lotus Notes, because, for example, there are new cheaper (and some of them open source) solutions.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Experiences with IBM Lotus Notes and NVDA

Hi,

we used Notes until Oct 2017 in our Company. Its accessibility with NVDA is quite bad. You can read the Folder Structure and the mail headers, but not the content of the mail. I use to go into the mail, copy the whole content and paste it into an empty editor window. To answer the mail i wrote my answer into the editor menu and paste it back into Lotus, not a comfortable way, but it worked. The context menues and the normal menues works quite okay as far as I remember. Other parts of the programm like the calendar doesn't work at all with NVDA.

Re: How to makeNVDA announce workspace I;m in

 

Hi,
I've been trying to look for a solution to this but it isn't easy (and also because I'm committed to another work at the moment). At least when you open Task View and go to desktops, you'll know which virtual desktop you are on if it is selected. If you do find a solution, do send a pull request on Windows 10 App Essentials, as the fix is appropriate for that add-on (not a new one).

Joseph

Welcome to NVDA 2018: Preferences part 1 posted

 

Hi all,

 

The next installment in Welcome to NVDA 2018 series is now up at http://www.josephsl.net/tutorials under Welcome to NVDA 2018 section. This one is the first part in a two part series on NVDA preferences. Because NVDA ships with a lot of options (at least 110 options available), and to make it consistent with previous tutorial editions, preferences has been split into two parts. Also, due to hardware configuration, two computers were used.

 

Changes from 2015 edition:

 

  • Completely redone.
  • General settings: no changes.
  • Synthesizer: audio ducking setting is covered.
  • Supported speech synthesizers: Espeak NG, Microsoft SAPI5, Windows OneCore and Nuance Vocalizer are featured.
  • Voice settings: no changes.
  • Synth settings ring: some clarifications.
  • Braille settings: too many to list, the most prominent ones being cursor shape and focus context changes.
  • Supported braille displays: hinted at changes coming in NVDA 2018.1.
  • Keyboard settings: an example of using skim reading, speech interrupt examples, and spelling error buzzer is mentioned (Popular apps/MS Word segment has an example).
  • Mouse settings: no changes.
  • Saving and restoring settings: no changes.

 

In addition to the above, the first addendum topic is now available: touch interaction dialog (to make its debut as part of NVDA 2018.1). This topic will be incorporated into the main tutorial once NVDA 2018.1 is released.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

Other forms of punctuation won't work.  I've experimented before and nothing is longer than one period.  I don't know if there is any way to do what you want but that isn't one.

Try other forms of punctuation. Colon, ellipses, i.e. three periods/dots
in a row separated by spaces ... like this ... You probably want: 
punctuation set to none ... if you're reading : : : poetry anyway.
Played around with some different punctuation there for you to check
out. And yes, it will probably vary by synthesizer as well.
