You are correct but what you won't receive are new features, which are not usually added to perpetual licenses of Office such as Office 2016.

Yes, you wont get 2019 or 365 automatically, you will stay with 2016. With a 365 subscription you always get the newest release of Office.

Hi Morné,

  1. Make sure progressbar announcement is enabled, hit NVDA-U to adjust it to your needs. By the way, for me object and screen navigation are working properly in this window.
  2. I have a super speed when composing mails in Outlook 365, maybe it helps to disable some document related items like spell checking and pages in the NVDA document formatting . You can get there with NVDA-Control-D

I would think that, considering the legitimagte places to get Office cheaply, that subscribing for a monthly fee may be considerably more costly over time.  Unless you need the most current version for some reason, the subscription model seems like a bad deal to me.

I know I won’t  move from 2016 to 2019 or 365,  but I will continue to get updates to 2016.

2016 is not dead,  it is still alive in the software world.

Yes, you wont get 2019 or 365 automatically, you will stay with 2016. With a 365 subscription you always get the newest release of Office.

 

Cheers,

What are the advantages and disadvantages  of Office 365 with NVDA?  Will it find my account in office 2016?


Can the "highlight browse mode cursor" feature be customized (color)?

glen.walker@...
 

It's nice that the "focus highlight" addon is implemented directly in NVDA now, as of 2019.3.  Github issue 9064 notes, "The current highlighter colors might be difficult for some people to see. In the future, I'd like this to be configurable."

Having the color configurable in the settings dialog is obviously ideal but in the meantime is there a config file somewhere that could be manually changed to control the color?  Specifically, the browse mode cursor is a yellow rectangle by default.  Since many webpages have a white background, the yellow is difficult to see (as noted in github).  I'm hoping the highlight colors aren't hardcoded into the app but rather come from a config file.


Re: Progress bar does not read in Windows Defender

Morne van der Merwe
 

Hello Ralf,

 

Thanks for the advice. My progress bar is set correctly so it does read the progress randomly. I tried to use the screen and object review in Defender with no success.  Objec review only focuses the cursor on the “cancel button” and screen review only says “blank.”

 

I will give it a try again though.

 

Have a wonderful evening.

Hi Morné,

  1. Make sure progressbar announcement is enabled, hit NVDA-U to adjust it to your needs. By the way, for me object and screen navigation are working properly in this window.
  2. I have a super speed when composing mails in Outlook 365, maybe it helps to disable some document related items like spell checking and pages in the NVDA document formatting . You can get there with NVDA-Control-D

 

Cheers,

  Ralf

Hello list,

 

I am running the latest versions of both Windows 10 and NVDA.

 

When a virus scan with Windows Defender is being performed, NVDA does not read the progress bar of the scan.  Is there a way to read the progress bar since object and screen review do not work.

 

Lastly, why is NVDA sluggish when typing in Microsoft 365? While I am typing this email, NVDA gets way behind my typing speed.

 

Kind regards to all and stay healthy.

Here's an issue for this:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/10401

 

Ralf - there are a couple of issues with drop-down lists in Excel that I know of (this one, I thought was newish, but there is one with lists not reading in Excel 2013 specifically, and another one for items in drop down lists being read out twice which is also still present).  If your issue is among those then hopefully its scope is captured there, otherwise do let us know what you are experiencing to make sure we are aware of it).

 

For this particular bug, pressing ALT twice is one way of overcoming it (or alt+tab twice as suggested elsewhere).

 

Quentin.

Hello all,

I am facing some issues with latest NVDA and Excel 2016.

If i open any drop down list and select any content from list, after that NVDA stops speaking after pressing down right left arrow or tab.

It becomes speakable again when i switch program using Alt plus tab and come back to excel.

Another issue sometime NVDA stops speaking in excel without above problem. Switching focus back to excel required

Thanks

Re: Office 365 with NVDA

Morne van der Merwe
 

Hello Denis,

 

Just for interest:  Office 365’s name has changed at the beginning of May to Microsoft 365.  I can really recommend it because you are always up to date with the newest features and updates.

 

I don’t know where you live, but in South Africa, a Microsoft package can be very expensive.  For me to pay a small amount per month for 365 is more cost effective.  So another advantage is that it will not hurt your wallet.

 

Take care

 

Morné
