Re: Deleting a Coment in Word

Once you are on a comment in the text, press alt+r for the Review ribbon, then N for next comment.

Re: NVDA and Excel

 

Hi,

We’re running out of commands quickly, especially now that the add-ons community is expanding rapidly. But if people want it, it should be left unassigned.

As for preprocessing COM output, that’s up to NV Access to decide (not me at this moment).

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Joseph,

 

Many thanks for the explanation. How about having a separate keystroke for reading the cell indicator in Excel?

 

Alternatively, once you grab the COM info, can you do some preprocessing to  present the information in the format the user wants?

Re: getting information about the focused file

Dean,

The other command you needed there was NVDA+numpad7 or for laptop layout, NVDA+page up to switch to next review mode.  In Screen Review mode you can use numpad 8 or NVDA+shift+. to read the full line.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi,

NVDA+L reads the focused line, the line that has the carret

NVDA+SHIFT+.

Reads the current line where the Review cursor is.

There are two different lines you can be on. The PC cursor can be on one line, and the review cursor can be on another line.

The command: SHIFT+NVDA+O tells you about the current object you are on with using text review with the review cursor.

Well, I’m missing something.  In the laptop layout, NVDA+L and NVDA+GREATER-THAN (>)  do the same thing.  The first press reads the line, or in this case, since I’m in windows Explorer, the file name, the second press spells it.  Neither keystroke yields information about the file’s properties as can be had in JAWS.  This is not a huge deal, but it is a nice convenience.

The laptop keystroke for "Report current line in review" (which is what numpad 8 is in desktop layout) is NVDA+shift+.

 

It's a bit more cumbersome but it does what you were trying to do.

I can play with the reading tool tips option when I find it.  It is not
complicated: When one presses the JAWS speak line key while focused on a
file in windows Explorer, the screen reader reads out all the details for
that file.  When arrowing through the list, these details are not spoken, so
one has an easy quick way to get the details when one wants them, otherwise
they aren't heard.  I have pretty much resigned myself to the fact that this

To get the information you want on the file, you want to use the command NVDA+SHIFT+O.

Hi Quentin,

Thank you so much for these directions. I have wanted to create new configurations for other applications with NVDA, and you really helped me understand how to this. You help me so much, Quentin, I just want you to know that, and thank you for all of your time and knowledge that you provide us on this list.

You explained this creating a new profile so simply, somehow, the light came on LOL! I am going to practice with this. Have a great one.

Oops, sent too soon :)

 

I was going to add:

 

8. Press ENTER to create the new profile.

9. Press NVDA+CONTROL+S and set the synthesizer to "No speech".


Now you'll have no speech in that profile.  If you want to change that down the track, you either:

- can go into the NVDA configuration profile again (repeat steps 1 - 3 from the previous message) and delete the profile you created, or remove the trigger.

- Or you can go into the app, press NVDA+CONTROL+S then press UP ARROW to move through the synthesizers or HOME to jump straight back to eSpeak.  Note that you won't have any speech until you press ENTER to set the synth to something other than no speech.

3. Press C for Configuration profiles.

4. Press ALT+N to create a new profile.

5. Give the profile a name (eg the name of the program).

6. Press TAB once to "use this profile for" which is a set of radio buttons.

Hi,  This just came up on a new clean install.  I want nvda to stop speaking when kurzweil 1000 is active because k1000 is self-voicing.  How do I arrange this?

Hi Quentin,

Thank you so much for these directions. I have wanted to create new configurations for other applications with NVDA, and you really helped me understand how to this. You help me so much, Quentin, I just want you to know that, and thank you for all of your time and knowledge that you provide us on this list.

You explained this creating a new profile so simply, somehow, the light came on LOL! I am going to practice with this. Have a great one.

Oops, sent too soon :)

 

I was going to add:

 

8. Press ENTER to create the new profile.

9. Press NVDA+CONTROL+S and set the synthesizer to "No speech".


Now you'll have no speech in that profile.  If you want to change that down the track, you either:

- can go into the NVDA configuration profile again (repeat steps 1 - 3 from the previous message) and delete the profile you created, or remove the trigger.

- Or you can go into the app, press NVDA+CONTROL+S then press UP ARROW to move through the synthesizers or HOME to jump straight back to eSpeak.  Note that you won't have any speech until you press ENTER to set the synth to something other than no speech.


Regards

 

Quentin.

Re: getting information about the focused file

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Dean,

The laptop keystroke for "Report current line in review" (which is what numpad 8 is in desktop layout) is NVDA+shift+.

It's a bit more cumbersome but it does what you were trying to do.

Regards

Quentin.

Assunto: Re: [nvda] getting information about the focused file

I can play with the reading tool tips option when I find it.  It is not
complicated: When one presses the JAWS speak line key while focused on a
file in windows Explorer, the screen reader reads out all the details for
that file.  When arrowing through the list, these details are not spoken, so
one has an easy quick way to get the details when one wants them, otherwise
they aren't heard.  I have pretty much resigned myself to the fact that this
convenience isn't available with NVDA, but the information is easy to come
by.

I don't know what the Jaws keys are doing, but allowing nvda to read tool
tips etc can make the file info more verbose.

It would help if we knew what sort of info was required.

Re: NVDA + Stenograph + Microsoft Word

Quentin Christensen
 

This is an interesting problem.  As Chris asks, does the problem just happen when you are typing or when you are reading as well?

Also, you mentioned it only happens in Word and Open Office, so if you type something in Notepad or WordPad, or in an edit field on the web does it read ok?

Finally, what kind of steno keyboard are you using?

Kind regards

Quentin.

This is a very strange case...
Some characters results oublek also into the word.

This happens only when you type with your steno keyboard, or  even when you read the entire document after typing?

Sure, if the text in OpenOffice Writer is corret the speech dictionary don't works in this regard.






Chris.

Daniele Casarola, 12/02/2017 14:47:
In the screenshoot I've put two indows: on the left side the OpenOffice Writer Window where I've typed some sentences and on the right side the Tools-->Speech Viewer window.

The words typed in OpenOffice Writer and the words that appears on the Speech Viewer should be monstly the same.

But on the Speech Viewer they are all incorrect. Basically some letters are repeated.

For example "Sto" in the OpenOffice Writer becames "Stto" on the Speech Viewer. "provando" becames "pprrovaando" and so on. This happens for all the words, not for a word specifically.

the sub menu, press enter, this will delete the row you are on, now press
control and Z to undo the last command, NVDA now reads the rows correctly.
You can use this after filling in many rows in the table, but make sure you

have more than enough rows for your work, also ignore the row announcemant
while filling in if you are going to use the commands after filling in the
table.
The only other way I’ve found is to fill in the table as you go, if no blank

row is below the one you are filling in, NVDA doesn’t have a problem.
Good luck.
