Dear Denis

 

The main advantage of Microsoft 365 is that Office stays up-to-date at no extra cost.

Once you get it installed, check in the Help section; there's probably
a list of shortcut keys in there.

Thanks Nancy,
I asked you the question about Fire Fox settings because I have not used it
for over six years and do not remember much about its shortcuts. I do not
even know if there is a list for shortcuts of fire fox with a screen

Hopefully some other people who have used fire fox on a regular bases give
me some tips and hints.

go to preferences,
you are in General,
tab to: ""when starting dropbox go to the desktop app: uncheck this,
tab twice, ""badge"" do not use that,
tab twice to ""open folders in"" change to file explorer.
use alt + down arrow for pulldown,
enter out of there.

I am also hoping for an add-on for the dectalk usb syn. I use NVDA in a broadcast environment and it sure is helpful to have an external syn to work with.

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone knew of plans to have a TripleTalk USB add-on
created that will work with the latest version of NVDA? One was created
for 2019.2, but obviously no longer works with the new version. If not,
is
there contact information for the original developer?

Thanks Nancy,
Do you have any specific settings for fire fox to run smoothly with NVDA? I will certainly install fire fox and try it. I tried hard to reply to threaded messages on Canvas using Edge without success. Did you encounter any problems you wish to share? I will be using Canvas a lot from now on. NVDA is my primary screen reader.

Hello folks,

I am currently teaching online. However, I am having some accessibility issues with Canvas. I access the canvas pages using Microsoft edge.

I have two questions: First, is Microsoft edge a good choice to access canvas? Do you recommend another better browser to accomplish this?

My second question to Students, What kind of accessibility problems you have with Canvas using NVDA? My biggest problem is in finding edit boxes in discussion threads.

Your feedback will be truly appreciated.

Re: Are Unikey and Sogou accessible?

 

Hi Marco Oros

I'm Cuong from Vietnam, and I'll share info about UniKey program.

First, the correct spelling for Vietnamese typing Program is UniKey, not Unikey.
FYI, the program is quite accessible, and it usually set to start automatically when Windows start. Almost its settings just do once, then blind, or sighted people just turn on there computer and type Vietnamese as anytime. This require NVDA users to turn off the Handle keys from other applications option in keyboard settings.

Re: Issue with pronunciation dictionary

How should it be pronounced?  Don't worry about placing a mark in the pronounced as name.  Write the name as you want it pronounced/  Is it pronounced be lanna or be lana or in some other way?  Write pronounced as fields in any way that gives the correct pronounciation.  At times, I put a space in a pronounced as rendering.

I fixed it. It was weird, though. I had to delete and remake the initial entry, as well as the one giving me grief. but it's fixed now. Sorry for causing any inconvenience.

Easiest way to get these is to go into the dictionary dialog, find them,
then copy them by hitting NVDA+numpad5 three times.
Or if you're on laptop, nvda+shift+o 3 times.

Once I have the list entries, that shows all the values in the dialog I
need to replicate them here to see where you're going wrong. Please do
