PS I think its got something to do with UIA being used that causes lock ups in older versions of Office pre 2007.

Hi,



Anybody out there using NVDA with Office 2003?



I have a report from one of our users saying that Outlook 2003 freezes when
opening a message. Sorry but at the moment no time available for gathering
logs.



Our solution for now is to reinstall 2017.1 and switch off automatic
updates.



Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Simply install or use as a portable the latest snapshot on the next branch in the development snapshots. I imagine that they will eventually appear in the Master branch, so do not wait till its a done deal to moan if this is what you are thinking.
I've always found that the devs take notice of problems and its best done now rather than later on.

You need to perhaps create an issue on github if you feel strongly then. If you do, I'll add my voice, but I'm not against the changes, just that I think they are less audible and less idedentifiable escpecially for those with a hf loss in their hearing.
I love the error sound though. I'd like a farting noise which it almost is!

I think some Toshibas and some hps need it doing in the bios, but I've never really understood why a small utility could not be made to do this during reboot of the computer from a script made while still in windows.

No you just need to be firm with where you buy it. Its the job of a few
seconds for a sighted person normally, to go into the bios at boot up and
change the settings of the function keys so fn needs to be pressed to get
the special media functions not the other way around. also the application
key can be done by two other keys, one of them a function key which is why
this has to be off otherwise its three keys and almost impossible. I'd also
never entertain again any laptop with no keypad.

OH that's why I haven't noticed problems with mine: it's from 2011, and

Hi.
My hp from 2012 running windows 7 had sound problems.
It was running beats audio sound card with its own drivers.
At the end I had to disable the beats audio sound and enable the
generic windows sound driver.
The sound is not as good now but at least it is more responsive.

I don't even remember how I did this I found instructions on youtube.

Another thing that I don't like on laptops these days which hasn't got
anything to do with sound is the fact that they don't include the
applications key any more.
Very annoying.
And finally the fact that you have to press the fn key in combination
with the function keys to perform windows functions such as rename,
refresh etc.
I know you can fix this from the bios but you need sighted assistance
to do it.

I think they are getting worst instead of any better.

I tried nvda on toshiba laptops, hp laptops and lenovo laptops
and I didn't like the way nvda responds and sounds like.
I have got the impression that this problem started under windows

I didn't find similar situations under windows xp.
I was using espeak in all situations.
I don't want to imagine how it would sound like with vocalizer or
some other hi-q sapi5 voices which are heavier in resorces.
I found the following issues.
Sometimes nvda responds with some delay after we press a button
on the keyboard.
The sound card cuts sometimes the beginning and the end of a word
or sentence.
The sound card doesn't seam to cope well when doing things
quickly such as typing, or when pressing arrow keys rubbitly.

Sometimes the issue can be fixed if we disable all the
enhancements under playback settings but this option is not
available in some laptops.

I am not very familiar with the issues system yet.
I searched but I didn't find something on laptops, sound cards,
espeak etc.
If there isn't a similar issue perhaps I can create a new one.

Yesterday I encountered a very unusual situation where nvda was
working well on a lenovo laptop, but it became very slow in
responding after updating to the latest creators update of
windows 10.

Narator on this particular laptop was responding well with the
windows 10 voices.
I don't know if it would be possible to have different bitrates
to choose for espeak in cases where nvda is not very responsive
in some sound cards.

So what are your experiences with laptops these days and how did
you fix any sound issues?
I don't know the exact models right now because the laptops
belong to friends but if necessary I can find out.

Re: Laptops and sound issues

I'd agree but to my ears, no matter how hyped up they get about sound on laptops they all sound tinny and rattle the keys if played loud.
I think the suck it and see approach is going to be the only way out. Its not unknown for some desktops to suffer from these issues as well. sometimes one can select a speaker config that will turn all the fancy rubbish off, but finding it and finding if its accessible are other challenges.
I tend to use a little sound box plugged into usb myself on all machines as often the internal sound output is noisy with interference generated inside the computer so if you want good sound, say through a hi fi you are not going to get it without an external card and often a powered hub to get rid of 5v line noise on the usb as well... sigh.

Ok dell was my last hope.
It was the only make I didn't try yet and I was hoping that they left the
sound drivers alone.

The problem is that we won't know these types of problems unless if we try
nvda on them before we buy because on laptop specks sound gets very little
mention or even not at all.
We know about the processor, the hard drive, the ram, connectivity but not
the sound.

Well if its installed then there should be no issue other than perhaps a lag as you scroll the list.
I have seen temp copies not rad the list very well due to the fact it cannot access the accessability api due to privelidge issues, ie it needs to be admin.

Other than that I'd scratch my head unless something else installed is putting an invisible window over the contents for some odd reason.

There already is a choice for verbal notification. It should be verbal notification by default.

System Access doesn't have a forms and browse mode because it is designed somehow to allow the page to be changed such as in edit fields and to allow browsing at the same time. However, this imposes limitations on what you can do. I haven't used System Access to Go hardly at all for a long time but I recall coming across occasions where I wanted to do something I couldn't do because I couldn't switch between browse and forms mode.

A verbal prompt that brouse mode was on would be good. So long as
there is some sort of indication that brouse mode is on, I don't see a
problem with getting rid of sounds.
System Access doesn't have a brouse mode at all. You simply go to the
website go to the edit field you want and type. It used to allow you to
type in any edit field. It doesn't work with Google anymore.
Regardless, it's an idea for the NVDA developers.

Re: Office 2003 with NVDA 2017.2

His message is in English, but the language is set to Danish, so automatic language switching tries to read it in Danish.

There are two ways to get around this:
1. Turn off automatic language switching in NVDA's Voice Settings dialog. Disabling that will keep the synthesizer in one language, with the disadvantage that it won't automatically switch for you if you have a properly marked up document in multiple languages.
2. Switch to a synthesizer that can't switch languages.

Hi, Peter,


I can't read this message. It sounds like it's either in another language or gibberish. I tried both in outlook and thunderbird and the same thing. Could it be the encoding? I'm not sure what to make of

it.

Hi,

 

Anybody out there using NVDA with Office 2003?

 

I have a report from one of our users saying that Outlook 2003 freezes when opening a message. Sorry but at the moment no time available for gathering logs.

 

Our solution for now is to reinstall 2017.1 and switch off automatic updates.

 

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

 

Daniel

I was just thinking that's a straight forward enough suggestion, and was going to create an issue... Then I noticed I already had!  For anyone interested in following this, the issue is: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/5889

Hi Brandon,
No, there is no way via NVDA core itself that you can currently spell
clipboard contents. You may check the ClipContent Designer NVDA
add-on, and if this functionality is not available (which it probably
isn't, as far as I recall), you can suggest it to Nolia.
Thanks.

Re: Office 2003 with NVDA 2017.2

Could someone using Outlook 2003 please file an issue with the exact steps: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues

Actually, if someone using Office 2003 could test something for me in Excel with NVDA 2017.2 - someone reported that cell coordinates aren't being reported when using the arrow keys to move between cells.  There is a setting in NVDA's document formatting options to report "cell coordinates" which needs to be on.  If someone could confirm whether cell coordinates are reported in Excel 2003 with that setting checked that would be great please!

Kind regards

Quentin.

copying one configuration to another NVDA

Dennis L
 

Hi, how do I copy one configuration to another version of NVDA?  For example an installed version to a portable?  I just want the configuration file tts etc.


Re: Moving to NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

Gene made a guide on switching from Window-Eyes to NVDA if that would help: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda-community/wiki/Switching-from-Window-Eyes-to-NVDA

Also, in NVDA, if there is a command, you really want to stick to the Window-Eyes command for, you can use the "Input Gestures" dialog to customise it.  The NVDA key is usually either INSERT or CAPS LOCK.  To get to the Input Gestures screen:

1. Press NVDA+n
2. Press P for preferences
3. Either up arrow to "Input Gestures" (it's near the bottom) then ENTER or press N.
4. Choose a command to edit.
5. Press ALT+A to add a gesture
6. Type the new gesture
7. Press ENTER twice (once to accept and then once more to close the dialog - alternatively just accept the new keystroke then return to step 4 to find a new command to add a gesture for).

Regards

Quentin.

I consider the Window-eyes JAWS emulation layout to be a gimmick that actually works against people learning Window-eyes fully since the JAWS emulation doesn't incorporate all the Window-eyes commands.

And I have to concur.

In virtually all cases the "crutches" that are offered are just that:  crutches.   I don't like the JAWS virtual ribbon because it stops people from learning how to use the Windows ribbon, which is never going away.  There are all sorts of these things and they do as much, sometimes more, damage than good.

Not having used Window Eyes much I can't speak to what it would be like to transition to either JAWS or NVDA, but having done the JAWS to NVDA learning myself, and flip-flopping back and forth between the two, both are most functional when understood on their own terms.  And what they have in common is, in my opinion, far more than what separates them (though some of those separating things can come in really, really handy at times on both sides of the equation).

I'm not sure what is in later versions of Windows.  Windows XP has a clipboard viewer.  The easiest thing to do for now, if an NVDA add on doesn't have the ability, is to copy the text into Notepad and check the spelling.
