Good evening list. I am not very familiar with office suites so wondering if libreoffice or open office open Microsoft doc documents and if so, which one is accessible with nvda? Any input would be appreciated.

I checked one link and it works. I assume the other link works, too. The links may wrap to the next line. Copy the entire link to the clipboard. paste it into the address field of your browser and follow the link. This is important to know. If you don't know this, you will have trouble with many links in e-mail messages that work properly.

You can certainly run Linux with a Windows like interface.

There are some differences, but they are not bad.

You do have the command line is you want to get geeky, but you don’t have
to

these days.

I personally like Vinux, designed for the Blind.

I must confess I am usually running Debian, or Ubuntu Linux.

Maybe you can give it a try in a virtual computer, and see what you
think.

I ran a CP/m machine for years, and you talk about a learning curve, but
you

make do with what is available.

Having said all of that, once you get Windows 10 setup it is much more
secure than ever.

It does get the job done.

Gene, Here is my reasonable take on this based on my more than 15 years
of

in depth experience not only of windows, but also other major operating
systems.

First, windows is a terrible product in any itteration. There isn't a
single thing windows does better than other operating systems except for
arketecture support. It's the most expensive operating system to
implement

if you remove hardware from the equation. Windows supports cheeper
hardware

than the competition but that doesn't negate the fact that windows itself
is

the highest priced operating system on the market. Windows is also more
expensive to maintain. In fact, an upgrade from windows seven to windows
10

takes about two hours time. If you have to fully patch windows seven sp1
it

takes between 3 and 6 hours depending on connection speed. If you're
paying

by the hour, which would you choose?

Windows is the least secure of all the major OS, further compounding the
astronomical maintanence cost and driving down productivity. I have not
yet

had to hack windows 10, but I have windows seven. In windows seven it is
common place for programs to allow themselves transparently through built
in

firewalling. It is also common place for programs to run as
administrator
without requiring the administrator account to be enabled or requiring an
administrator password. It is possible for programs to sircomvent the
notification system that works on the front line, and it's even possible
and

considered advisable by many people to turn the security notifications
off
altogether. In fact, it is possible when sitting at the keyboard of a
windows seven workstation to gain administrator access without logging in
at

all, to add, remove, or rename windows system files, to take command line
control of a workstation, and to perform any command line function
including

enabling or disabling the administrator account and changing account
credentials, all without logging in. Litterally any improvement would be
better than the attrocity that is windows seven security.

Microsoft interface design is terrible. Ribbons and tiles are only two
examples of design choices meant to set windows apart from competetors
but
had the effect of alienating users. Windows 10 does the smart thing and
returns the windows interface to a more desktop feel.

Windows only gets a refresh every three years or so. That means a lot
happens in the computer world between releases. Because the releases are
alternately pretty decent over all come terrible to the point of
uselessness, windows appeals to pundets who don't like change and want to
hault progress. Fine, but windows seven is coming up on 8 years old and
we

are still talking about support for windows xp being discontinued.
Nowhere

else in the world of operating systems are we talking about support for 8
year old software, and 17 year old software isn't even available for
download on pirate sites. Computers that shipped with windows 7 at the
time

of the release of windows 8 are now end of lifed, and yet, I was still
able

to buy and install a windows seven a month ago. The cost to developers
of
supporting four operating systems spanning 11 years: ten, eight, seven
and
vista, is astronomical, and you lucky end-user, get to pay the bill. The
cost of windows software over all is significantly higher than on any
other

operating system, and part of the reason is that windows users live in
the
past more than any other userbase.

Windows ten continues to be a free upgrade for current users of seven and
eight, long after it was supposed to switch to a completely paid product.
The minimum and recommended hardware configurations are similar to those
of

windows seven. Upgrading usually brings better plug and play hardware
support and other items under the hood that users would miss if they were
gone.

There are features I like in windows ten such as it's minimalist email
app
and it's improved tts voices. Then there are things I'm not too pleased
with such as the loss of control over windows update and the increased
relience on ribbons. True, we don't really have enough information about
this particular case to make a recommendation one way or the other, but
in
general, it is more than time to leave windows seven behind unlesss you
have

some substantial reason not to, such as loss of support for a crutial
piece

of hardware.

All upgrades on all systems require a bit of retraining for new features
or

fernature that moves, but that is part and parcel of computing. Windows
ten

is market tested, reliable and functional at this point. Staying with
windows seven just because is fine for now if that's your personal
choice,
but if you're supporting or recommending on a pro or semipro basis, the
recommendation has to be to upgrade at this point unless circomstances
dictate otherwise.

Best,

Erik

I beg to differ, or maybe I'm just unlucky but a particular laptop from Dell seems to be able to support 10, but apparently has issues with its network and mouse pad drivers.

Its rather off topic here though.
Like most things it all depends on the variant of the model etc. Several different makers of hardware were used in this same laptop, and some are supported but not all.

Sometimes though, if the person on the other end is pretty savvy, you can rename the extensions of attachments and instruct the person at the other end to rename them back.
Also the best way of all if you need to send big files of any type is a cloud storage like dropbox or google drive where you can just send them the link and let them download the file.

You are evidently using a web site to send e-mail. You don't tell us
which one. What you are describing is not the standard way such dialogs
work. I assume that after you press the add attachment button, a dialog
comes up. If so, shift tab once or if necessary twice. You will be in a
list of folders and files as you are in My Computer. Move back through the
list with the back space. Move forward by pressing enter on something such
as a folder. Find the file you want and press enter.

I've almost never added an attachment using a web site but that should be
all you have to do. As I said, I've almost never done this but I believe
that you will have to allow time for the attachment to upload, if it is at
all large. I haven't done this enough to know if you are notified on the
page when the attachment has finished uploading.

Re: Does libreoffice or open office open Microsoft documents?

 

hi.
both libreoffice and openoffice can open docx, doc, rtf, html, txt etc.
but if you want to use docx format for exporting your documents, you
should only use libreoffice!
because openoffice does not have save as docx.

here you are the direct link for downloading best version of
libreoffice from its website.

Re: reading progress down loads in google chrome

 

hi.
i desabled javascript, image for loading automaticly, and even
prevented firefox from remembering any history, cach, cookies password
and users and anything may related that firefox keeps.
i set many options and it took more than 25 minutes time to do it.
the settings are very useful for security.
also i translated some articles about in to farsi my native language.
see these links for security and best settings in firefox.

There is often no best and greatest of whatever that is stated about. The
only way I am aware of to speed up Firefox is to do something like turn off
JAVA Scripts or use a script blocker. Turning off downloading of images may
speed up things a little and it's a good idea because images are used at
times to spread malware. Are you aware of the consequences of blocking
scripts or turning off scripts in the browser? Unless you are, you
shouldn't play with turning off or blocking scripts until you know more
about the subject.

it is for sighted people, but for blind people, this is somewhat
cumbersome. Also, awhile back, Chrome stopped honoring quick
browsing commands in the settings interface which is a web page
interface. Has this been corrected? What this means is that you
can't, for example, make a change and then use the letter b to jump
to the done button. You have to tab through all the rest of the
settings.
It may be that for a lot of browsing, Chrome is faster or somewhat
faster. I haven't compared, thogh I've seen a few people say it
is. But one reason I still use firefox as my main browser is to
avoid having so many interfaces be rendered as web pages.

Hello,
Once you have hit control plus J tab a time or two and you should
land on a heading that says today. This is the downloads you have
done today. The first one under this heading should be your current
download. If you arrow down a bit you will hear a line that has the
path where the download is going. This line will also have the
speed of your download. If you go down one more line you should
hear the percentage. It will be read as a normal number like 34. I
don’t think it says percent but this is the percent of your download.

Re: Does libreoffice or open office open Microsoft documents?

Simon Jaeger
 

Everyone I've ever spoken to has said that LibreOffice is better. They have a rather odd licensing agreement: LibreOffice is a fork of Open Office, but continues to implement Open Office's new features. On the other hand, Open Office cannot do the same with changes made to LibreOffice. This means that any accessibility improvements made specifically in LibreOffice will not necessarily be made in Open Office. I may be wrong about this as it's been some time since I've researched it, and both programs can happily exist on the same system simultaneously, so you have nothing to lose by trying both. The last time I used either of them, it was LibreOffice. I found that the writer app was fairly good, although table navigation was not as smooth as Microsoft Word. The calc app (equivalent to Excel or Numbers) caused errors in NVDA sometimes, and focus would inconsistently shift to make navigating with the arrows difficult.

Does libreoffice or open office open Microsoft documents?

Good evening list.  I am not very familiar with office suites so wondering if libreoffice or open office open Microsoft doc documents and if so, which one is accessible with nvda? Any input would be appreciated.

Good Evening,


I did find Freedom Scientific Braille displays in the the list. I have the setting for that as they were before (port set to automatic, cursor showing, and so forth). Display does not activate.
