Hi, everyone,

 

After reading a message in thunderbird, I couldn't go back to the inbox. I even tried to end the task with the task manager but to no avail. What could be going on?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

Re: Windows 10 Anniversary Update

A small number of machines need to see a monitor or they won't boot.  Im not sure if the monitor needs to be on but it needs to see one connected, if not on.  I've seen this discussed many years ago on another list.  I expect that this has nothing to do with Windows 10.

Hang on a moment, none of my machines have a monitor and I've had no issues

10 anniversary edition will sit and sulk if it has no monitor connected.
This would be very inconvenient!

Hi Bhavya,

The new colour option doesn't allow for complete dimming of the screen.  If
you are using a desktop, you should be able to simply leave the monitor off
(although my PC looks for the monitor connection and won't start if it
doesn't detect that the monitor is already on (which is quite annoying as
the monitor actually is on, it just takes a second or so to come on).  If
you are using a laptop, you might try pressing WINDOWS+P to "Project" the
screen and choose "Second screen only" to in effect turn off your main
screen.

So what the new colour option does is simply make the Windows settings
display with white text on a black background rather than black text on
white, which is the default for most things.

You can set it in the windows options (WINDOWS+i), choose personalisation,
then colours then "Choose your app mode" and set it to "Dark" rather than
"Light".

Regards

Quentin.

Re: NVDA and Outlook message status

 

This is a peculiarity with Outlook (or at least Outlook 2010, which I think has been carried over).  Virtually every e-mail client or web interface prefixes a forwarded message subject with either "Fwd:" or "FW:" and that gets read when going through the message list.

Outlook strips that from the message subject and I have yet to figure out how to make it stop doing that.  I have just posted a question to answers.microsoft.com and hope to learn more about how this might be changed back to the more conventional behavior where the forward and reply indicator text is left in place on the subject display.

I haven't used Outlook on a regular basis in years and hadn't realized it did this until I fired up my copy of Outlook 2010 to take a look at what is happening.

Re: Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Hi Quentin,
Thanks for the detailed explanation. One of the critical deficiencies
I found in Windows 10 was non-functionality of the second screen only
technique. It works perfectly well on Windows 8.1, and therefore I was
compelled to roll back. Appreciate all the informative content though.
Thanks.

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt

Hi Steve,

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the
start
menu is now three columns wide. The left column has user account /
file
explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all
apps
(first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in
full
apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles. You
can
still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the
context
menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow
you'd
have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.

If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U
again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the
power
button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've
just
never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly
avoided
due
to data loss :)

There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack
now
which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for
some.

Quentin.

Hi,
I experimented with Messenger.com,
and I like The Mobile site of Facebook much better. It is much more straight forward, and you can just enter on the link of a friend, send them a message, and press enter. Then, you can just go back to the list of friends, and message another person. Messenger did not work that well with NVDA for me.

Hello all

I notice that in the message list in Outlook (2010 and 2013) NVDA reports if a message is unread and whether it has an attachment, but it does not report if a message has been forwarded or replied as other screen readers do. Is this something which might be looked at by the developers, or am I by any chance missing some setting somewhere?

Hello,
I'd like to ask if anyone else is observing the following with recent
versions of Firefox. When loading a page, whose title we shall define as T,
NVDA announces chatter of the following structure:
T Mozilla Firefox. Unknown. Unknown. T Mozilla Firefox. T document
Now if you substitute anything substantial for T you can see how this would
amount to a lot of sylables with no useful information content.
Also, Alt+Tabbing to Firefox produces:
T Mozilla Firefox, T document
Finally, are there plans to implement a way of finding out if a page has
been fully loaded? I quite often find myself in the middle of reading a
paragraph when suddenly some asynchronous update happens and the review
cursor is thrown back a few lines or to the previous heading, to name but
two instances.
Any suggestions on any of those?

Hi Bhavya,

The new colour option doesn't allow for complete dimming of the screen. If
you are using a desktop, you should be able to simply leave the monitor off
(although my PC looks for the monitor connection and won't start if it
doesn't detect that the monitor is already on (which is quite annoying as
the monitor actually is on, it just takes a second or so to come on). If
you are using a laptop, you might try pressing WINDOWS+P to "Project" the
screen and choose "Second screen only" to in effect turn off your main
screen.

So what the new colour option does is simply make the Windows settings
display with white text on a black background rather than black text on
white, which is the default for most things.

You can set it in the windows options (WINDOWS+i), choose personalisation,
then colours then "Choose your app mode" and set it to "Dark" rather than
"Light".

Regards

Quentin.

Thanks for the instructions - one thing I learnt was that Ctrl + Space
is used to unselected something. Previously, I always used to create a
random folder and then delete it to have focus on nothing, to be able
to get to the New submenu on the Desktop.
Thanks.

Hi, Quentin,

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt F-4
and
hit enter. I also like the windows X, u and u keystroke too. It's
similar to
how you'd shut down in windows XP.

Hi Steve,

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start
menu is now three columns wide. The left column has user account / file
explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all
apps
(first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in
full
apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles. You can
still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context
menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow
you'd
have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.

If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U
again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power
button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just
never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided
due
to data loss :)

There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now
which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for
some.

Regards

Quentin.

1. Windows D to go to the Desktop.

2. Control Space Bar to unselect.

3. Press the Context Menu key and down arrow to New Submenu, then right arrow to open the submenu. Down arrow to Shortcut and press the Enter key.

4. Copy and paste the following text in the Edit Field that appears, then Tab to the Next Button and press the Space Bar.

C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0

5. Type a Name for your new shortcut in the Edit Field that appears, then Tab to the Finish Button and press the Space Bar. That’s it, you’re done. You now have a shortcut on the Desktop for shutting down your computer.



*Note: if you wish to add a Restart the Computer shortcut to the Desktop, you merely have to use the below text when following the above instructions.

C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 0

This is why the white space reg ex is used to stop it being seen in other words of course.

Hello Chris and Gene,

Thank you for your replies, After much thought I remember doing this in the
Jaws dictionary, I find no entries in any of the NVDA dictionaries, this
seems strange to me, but, nevertheless, I have followed your advice and made
an entry in the voice dictionary, I typed the letters co in the first field
and then realised that it was no good typing the same into the next field, I
had to type something which sounded like that which I desired, so I typed
coe into this field, then pressed both the OK buttons in turn, this had the
desired efect.

Of course, in the previous messages, the replacement was another word which
could be spoken, so it worked, in my case I wanted co to be pronounced as
just that with no frills, maybe worth a mention for anyone else in the same
position.

unfortunately, after doing this, the word course is pronounced curse and
could pronounced cooled, also cooled is hardly pronounce at all.
I’ve probably made things worse, so I had better try and undo all I have
done.
Best Regards, Jim.

Try the following to get into the Voice dictionary:

NVDA+n – to open the NVDA menu

P – to open the preferences menu

D – to open the Speech dictionaries menu

V – to open the Voice dictionary dialog

Now press alt+d to list entries. Use down arrow to move down the list, if
nothing is listed, then there are no entries and as Gene says, it is maybe
programmed into the synth you are using. Try pressing alt+a and creating
the entry you want, press the OK button when your entry is complete, then
the OK button on the next screen. Do some tests and see what you get.



Cheers

Chris

Hello,



I’m going to sound really thick here, I have gone into all three
dictionaries and can’t get NVDA to speak the list of entries in either the
default dictionary or the voice dictionary. I want to get the word Co to say
just that, not company or county , I want this whether there is a full stop
after it or not. There is obviously an entry in the list pertaining to this
which I want to delete, but first I need to find it in the list, as I said,
I can’t get the list spokenin order to focus on this entry.

Can anyone elaborate on how to read the list? Thank you in advance.



Best Regards, Jim.

You can do this via the speech dictionaries. To edit the dictionary:



1. Press NVDA+n to open the NVDA menu

2. Press P for preferences

3. Press enter or d for default dictionary, v for voice dictionary or t for
temporary dictionary:



· Default: rules in this dictionary affect all speech in NVDA.

· Voice: rules in this dictionary affect speech for the synthesizer voice
currently being used.

· Temporary: rules in this dictionary affect all speech in NVDA, but only
for the current session. These rules are temporary and will be lost if NVDA
is restarted.

4. Press alt+a to add a new rule

5. Type "co." (with the dot but without the quotes)

6. Press tab

7. Type the new word (county)

8. Press enter

9. Press TAB four times to get to the OK button

10. Press ENTER.



More information on the dictionaries here:

Kind regards



Quentin.

Hi,



I wonder if anyone can advise how I can get NVDA to say “County” when it
meets the contraction “Co.” in an address line?



I am using “ETI Eloquence” as my speech engine in NVDA 2016.2 and Windows
10.



This is the common way to present the County in both the UK and Ireland. For
example, I live in County Wicklow and this is represented in my address line
as “Co. Wicklow”. However, NVDA says “Company Wicklow” every time!

How can I fix this?

All advice and thoughts are welcome.



All the best,



Cearbhall

I have seen the comments about the 64 bit version somewhereelse, but cannot find it now. Is there a ticket for this or, in fact are we supposed to be using the 32 bit version which works as it should.

powershell is accessible with NVDA?
In my experience, it didn't..... even I copy a command and press enter, it didn't speak the result.....

Hi, I assume folk are aware of this strange behaviour. Powershell is not something I use a lot, basically a glorified command prompt, but the 32 bit version has served me well on all machines before, and indeed works fine in windows 10, but..
I did last night run the 64 bit version and found the following with nvda. Typing into the command line is silent, but cursoring and deleting works
Running a command etc, results in a mixed spoken output of normal text output and single letters, ie spelled out speech, rather than that part of the output.
Anyone know what causes this weird effect?
Its not fixed in the next branch cos I tried it last night.
