Thank you! I appreciate this helpful comment and pointing to the failure to announce graphics as the porblem.

This has nothing to do with audio devices.  If you have speech, you have speech.  Audio device configuration has nothing to do with what a screen-reader reads. 

It has to do with whether it has the ability to produce speech. 

 

For some reason, NVDA is not reading or not seeing certain graphics.  I don't use Office and I don't know what others' experience is.

Dear Folks,

 

Before this conversation dies down, let me put my problem again. I have used Outlook 2007 for a number of years and was satisfied with how NVDA worked with it. Now I have Office 2016 for Business. My outlook opens the inbox in a view that NVDA announces as “Table View.” It is simply the list of emails that I am familiar with as the list of messages in the folder. When I navigate this list the sender, Subject, Date and Time are announced in the normal way, but not other fields (whether the message is unread or flagged or has an attachment). Visually, the closed envelope, flag, and paper clip are all present in their respective columns. Does anyone have the same experience or did anyone find out how to solve it?

Losing to Links

David Russell
 

Hello NVDA members,

Does anyone have a solution for an issue that seems to be occurring
more frequently when selecting a given website using Mozilla FireFox?

Either the website just comes up as the link and URL, or if at the
website, minutes later NVDA reads only the URL. Tabbing forward and
backward might correct the issue. Any text is gone when this occurs.
Again, this occurs with FireFox - current version, or next to the
current version as best I can tell.

Thanks.

No it even does this if the screensave is off from what I've found. It might
be a nice thing to see if one imports the exe notepad file from xp to 10 and
run it from another place to see if it still does it. Certainly Wordpad from
XP seems to be better than the 10 native one as I've tried it.For one
thing, no ribbon menus....

When I delete a file, NVDA states “processing” and nothing happens for a long time. 

When I hit the backspace to back out of a folder, the same thing happens.

When I load Firefox or IE11, NVDA states “blank” and sits there for a while.  Sometimes I just don’t wait and relaunch the browser.

At times it refuses to open fields in a form I am filling out. This is particularly frustrating when it is a financial form within my bank home page.

Are these things Win10 related or NVDA.  I am using the latest version of both.

Hello,

I'd like to ask if anyone else is also experiencing the following phenomenon:

Sometimes when alt+tabbing to another application or when another application opens and gets focus, this is not immediately announced. NVDA+t will speak something else such as "Explorer" or "Program Manager". When I then hit tab, focus is again tracked and announced.

Is this a known issue? I couldn't find anything related on Github but I thought I'd ask around if others are running into it.
Kind regards,

Felix

NVDA is sluggish

Pascal Lambert
 

Hi,

I am experiencing the following.  Anyone noticed the same?

When I delete a file, NVDA states “processing” and nothing happens for a long time. 

When I hit the backspace to back out of a folder, the same thing happens.

When I load Firefox or IE11, NVDA states “blank” and sits there for a while.  Sometimes I just don’t wait and relaunch the browser.

At times it refuses to open fields in a form I am filling out. This is particularly frustrating when it is a financial form within my bank home page.

Are these things Win10 related or NVDA.  I am using the latest version of both.

Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Blessings

Pascal

I experienced this issue especially with Firefox from nvda 2015.4 through 2016.3 running windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

Yes, I experience this semi-regularly, particularly in Firefox, where I often have to alt-tab away and back to get pages to work.

Follow-up: Problems with [nvda] Outlook 2016

Ralph Boersema
 

Friends,

 

So far, I have not been able to resolve the problem related in my message below. May I add two more questions? I am working with a new drive, new installation of windows 10, new subscription to Office 2016 for business, and new download of NVDA:

 

1. Can anyone tell me that they are not having the problem I encounter with Outlook 2016?

 

2. Is it possible that this problem arises from something to do with how my programs are installed, including the sound output devices? I doubt it, since everything else seems normal, but I thought I should ask.

 

Warmly,

Ralph

Dear Folks,

 

Before this conversation dies down, let me put my problem again. I have used Outlook 2007 for a number of years and was satisfied with how NVDA worked with it. Now I have Office 2016 for Business. My outlook opens the inbox in a view that NVDA announces as “Table View.” It is simply the list of emails that I am familiar with as the list of messages in the folder. When I navigate this list the sender, Subject, Date and Time are announced in the normal way, but not other fields (whether the message is unread or flagged or has an attachment). Visually, the closed envelope, flag, and paper clip are all present in their respective columns. Does anyone have the same experience or did anyone find out how to solve it?

 

Warm regards,

Ralph


Re: which is the most accessible virtual machine

Sorry - should also have said, that to switch focus into a VMWare player instance, ctrl + G when focused on it, and then combination of ctrl + alt to switch back to host operating system - and, I seem to need to then hit ctrl key again after that to release it's sort of stuck state, but, this has worked for me for a while now, across various host operating systems.


Stay well

Trick with VMWare player to start installation from something like an .iso image is ctrl + N keystroke - actually busy with a vinux test installation inside a VMWare machine right now.

Re: problem reading text file

Hi Brian,

Yesterday I installed notepad++. I'm going to try it out.
I have a question. The other day I saw a message that gave a link to scripts on the webbie.org.uk web site. Do you know anything about this? Thanks for any help.

Yes bit it is then converted into word format. I do suspect the more recent
notepad has some issues of its own.

No it even does this if the screensave is off from what I've found. It might
be a nice thing to see if one imports the exe notepad file from xp to 10 and
run it from another place to see if it still does it. Certainly Wordpad from
XP seems to be better than the 10 native one as I've tried it.For one
thing, no ribbon menus....

screen saver and set it to none to use say all in every places.

I think I recall something like this. Can you manually read thru the

I never tried solving this and haven't seen it often.

Hi All,

I get my church bulletin sent to me in a e mail attachment. It opens up
in notepad. When I use the say all command it doesn’t read the whole
file. I start window eyes and it reads fine. Also I tried putting it
into ms word and it reads fine. I made sure that the window was
maximized. I am using the latest nvda and win 10. Has anyone else seen
this? Thanks for any help. Regards, Gary kn4ox
