Have used it for a couple of things, but, nothing major, and not too often, and, yes, just had to tab around a bit as well.

Re: Help! Any way to disable error sound?

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi MK,

Which version of NVDA are you using?  The error sound is expected for this in snapshot builds, but in the stable NVDA 2017.1 should only generate the message in the log.

This can be caused by documents created by some third party programs where document properties, such as column width, aren't set properly.  See this issue for details: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6996

If you go into the page setup dialog in the document and ensure "gutter position" has a value that should stop the error (assuming that is the problem - if it's something else, please let me know).

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Help! Any way to disable error sound?

Gene
 

I'm not sure if there is a way other than this but before I go into it in more detail than I am now, I'll wait and see.  But one thing you can do is to create a wave file with a bit of silence and nothing else.  Then you can replace the error wave file with that one.  I'm not sure where the files are stored in the installed version.  I have such a file if you want it and I use it in the portable version I run to eliminate sounds I don't want.

I'm with everyone so far, but in different senses.

Thunderbird is indeed an excellent e-mail client overall and works beautifully with NVDA and other screen readers.  One can teach basic use and ignore all the bells and whistles not needed.  That being said, the less sophisticated user can and often does get themselves into trouble by fat-fingering something and triggering some function that they do not know about, do not wish to trigger, and have no idea how to exit.  That is the trouble with using a really full-featured e-mail client like Thunderbird.

I like Windows Live Mail 2012, and even though it's no longer officially supported that is mostly because Microsoft decided to change their proprietary access methods and did not wish to continue updating Windows Live Mail.   It still serves perfectly well as a POP or IMAP e-mail client.  If you want to download a copy of the full offline installer for Microsoft Essentials, of which Windows Live Mail is a part, it's on my Google Drive in 7-Zip format here.  I snagged a copy of the offline installer a couple of weeks before Microsoft withdrew active support.

I have recently learned of another fairly simple email client, eM Client, that looks quite good but I have not had a chance yet to evaluate it from an accessibility standpoint.  The interface seems to be simpler than Thunderbird's is, and that can be critical.   If you do evaluate this client for accessibility please report back.

Hi Jessica,

I use the touch cursor in JAWS to navigate the News App. This works very well. When you open the News App with JAWS 17 or 18, the touch cursor will come on automatically, and you can start pressing the right and left arrow keys to go through the different News articles. When you hear a title of a news article, press enter, then you can press right arrow to read the different hunks of the article. The entire article will not read; you pres the right arrow, listen to part of it, then press right arrow to hear more until you are done. If you want to use all of your reading commands to read word by word, for example, you have to enter text mode. To do this, press insert+enter. You will hear a sound, and then you can read that section of the article with up and arrow, and so on. When you are ready to go back to the touch cursor, just press escape, and then you can right arrow to the next hunk. You will know when you come to the end of that article, and then you just keep pressing the right arrow to get to the next article with the touch cursor turned on. To set up your news so you will get the articles that you are interested in to come up, turn off the touch cursor, and tab to a list of the different kinds of news that you can select from. Top headlines is already chosen. You can choose from sports news, and many other types of news. From then on, those articles of news will be there as you press the right arrow with the touch cursor turned on. Let us know if you have anymore questions after you try this. Let us know how it goes.

Do you know about working with object navigation?  The JAWS touch cursor is the rough equivalent of object navigation. I almost never use JAWS these days and I don't have Windows 10 but if you learn about object navigation, it will likely allow you to do what you want.  Other list members who know more about working with apps may have other, better suggestions but whatever the case, learning about object navigation is very worth while and it allows me to work with interfaces I couldn't work with otherwise.

Hi,I'm using NVDA, master snapshots, which are much more stable, on Windows 10, version 1703, rather than NVDA 2017.1.

Re: The windows store in windows 10

David Moore
 

Hi,

You pretty much said it. When store opens, you can tab to user profile and press enter, then arrow down to downloads and updates, and press enter on that, and update all of your apps. To search for an app, just press CTRL+E and you are in the search edit box. Type in the name of the app and press enter. Then, you have to tab many times to get back to where you did your search, and you will be able to read all of the apps that match what your search was. Just press enter on the app you are interested in, and it will download and install if it is free. I have never bought an app in the store. I do not know how all of that works. It is important that you keep your apps updated. Have a great one.

hi guys

 

 

is there people on the list who have used the store to get apps etc? I

was just having a sus and it looks as though you tab/ shift tab and in

parts use object navigation.

 

 

I usually just download desk top apps from other sources.

 

 

Is the windows store more for metro apps? or can you also get desk top apps?

 

 

has any one done a tutorial on how to use it with NVDA? wheather it is

written or audio on the basics of navigating the store etc.

 

 

not sure if it is some thing i would use but there might be others out

there who want to use it. If there is a tutorial can you share it?
