Turn on clipboard history from the start menu.
Hit Windows, type clipboard, enter on clipboard settings, tab to turn on history, tab to OK.
Windows + v turns on the clipboard.
Arrow up and down to find the clipboard entries. Most recent entry is on top. Hit enter to copy the item from the Windows clipboard to your target file.

Every time you use control c, the previous item on the clipboard is removed and replaced by the new one. You can't copy multiple items to the clipboard as you describe.

I'll look at the what's new section in the NVDA beta to see if this ability has been added. At this time, I don't remember if you need an NVDA add-on to do this or if the ability has been added to the screen-reader.

Hello Mike,



Regarding the clipboard:



Windows commands handle this situation.

If you want to put three things on the clipboard, select the first item, hit
control + c. Go to the second item, select it, and hit control + c. Again
select the third item and hit control + c.



Now go to where you want to paste item 1, hit windows + v. This will give
you a list of the things you have copied to the clipboard. Arrow up and
down the list until you find item one. Hit enter.



Again move to the second and third spots, Up and down arrow to you find
items 2 and 3, and hit enter for each.

hit windows + v, then enter.

Hi guys:



I have two questions regarding nvda:

First,

Is there a "append to clipboard" command in nvda the way there is in jaws,
"insert+windows+c" command?



Second,

I see that when I am in word, and I encounter a table, nvda does not say
"entering table" or "exiting table" like jaws does;

Is there a way to turn this on?

(by the way, this also happens within webpages as well).



Please advise as you like.

I can see an advantage (or disadvantage, depending on your outlook).  The add-on appends things to the clipboard such that they all paste in one fell swoop.  Essentially, there's still a single clipboard that you're adding on to and that, when pasting, puts the entire collected content in where pasted.

The Windows 10 Clipboard History feature creates what amounts to multiple clipboards, and each time you copy or cut that action creates a new clipboard, and the existing ones get "bumped down the list of clipboards."  You can paste from any one of these clipboards, individually, but you can't say paste all of them from first to last, or I can't find a way to do it.

Re: NVDA and outlook questions

This is slightly odd as this is precisely hwat NVDA does for me in Outlook. I have just tried it and if I press K the most recent email I have typed

whose name begins with K. Pressing the down arrow reveals other addresses beginning with K.

I wonder if there is a setting in Outlook about keeping recent addresses you need to turn on?
Having said that it is also true that this feature does not, for me at least,  any longer, reveal results from all your contacts. I often have to go into the to button and search in there to reveal all my addresses in contacts.

Re: NVDA and outlook questions

Gene
 

Does a suggestion appear on the line where you are typing? In Thunderbird, no suggestion is on that line. If you type something, then down arrow, you will move through a list of suggestions. You wouldn't want suggestions to be automatically read if you have to down arrow through them and they aren't on the line where you are typing.

Can anyone help to fully turn off NVDA?

 

We are trying to set up a new computer for a friend and installed NVDA.

We are not familiar with screen readers so we launched NVDA to test it

for her.  Then we tried to quit NVDA with insert + Q then OK, but NVDA

continued to run. No matter what we tried to quit, NVDA continued to

run. We finally went to the task manager to end task to stop NVDA. But

then NVDA automatically came back on whenever we installed or launched a

new program. We tried searching online for help but the Insert + Q or

Exit was the only option offered. But that option does not work for us.

 

When we turned Narrator on and off, it stayed off until we selected to

activate it.  Is there a similar setting or way to turn off NVDA and for

it to stay off until we select to turn it on?  Thank you for any help

the group can offer.

machine, then reinstall it to see if the behavior goes away.

The only time it should auto-start is if you were to choose the option to
"Start with Windows" while installing, and even then, if you use NVDA+Q
(INS+Q in the desktop keyboard layout) to exit NVDA it should not
self-restart afterward.

Re: How to turn off NVDA

The insert key is checked by default. also, the initial message indicates that the dialog opens and they use it to try to close the program. NVDA is either not shutting down correctlyy or not at all.

I suspect that what is happening is that it is crashing instead of shutting down and if it crashes, it might restart because it is designed to automatically restart after a crash.

Attempting a reinstallation may correct the problem but if it doesn't, the task manager can be used to close the program and do no harm to it.

I suspect that the option to start nvda after signin is checked

Go to nvda preferences > settings > general and uncheck the option to start nvda after signin



also make sure that the insert key has been checked to use as a modifier key

under keyboard options for nvda

Can anyone help to fully turn off NVDA?



We are trying to set up a new computer for a friend and installed NVDA.

We are not familiar with screen readers so we launched NVDA to test it

for her. Then we tried to quit NVDA with insert + Q then OK, but NVDA

continued to run. No matter what we tried to quit, NVDA continued to

run. We finally went to the task manager to end task to stop NVDA. But

then NVDA automatically came back on whenever we installed or launched a

new program. We tried searching online for help but the Insert + Q or

Exit was the only option offered. But that option does not work for us.



When we turned Narrator on and off, it stayed off until we selected to

activate it. Is there a similar setting or way to turn off NVDA and for

it to stay off until we select to turn it on? Thank you for any help

the group can offer.
