Hi James

On which operating system is this on? and which way are you trying to do it. Is it just a normal install of NVDA?

You might be getting the UAC screen coming up if it is in windows 10 anniversary version. If this is the case usually the ALT key and the letter Y will do the trick. the UAC screen to be read out needs the NVDA 2016.3 RC version which can be found at http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/
Do not go the next or master snapshot the RC version is the one you want..

Is it your own machine or is it one that is lent out as they might of setup a profile for you can can only be changed by the admin.

Re: Question: NVDA Silent When First Opening Word and When Initiating the Save Dialog

Brian's Mail list account BY <bglists@...>
 

Yes seen this and also on Libra Office as well. I think its some kind of timing thing as not always does it happen on all machines. I found that by changing the speed slow down in idle of the processor its a lot better. I now also get a similar issue at times in firefox where I have to hit alt and escape to get the page to read.

Its not just confined to nvda either, dolphin screenreaders do a similar thing.

If anyone has a cast iron fix for these missing events or slow catching up then feel free to say them. My newest machine with 8 gigs of memory seems to be imune to it.

Subject: [nvda] Question: NVDA Silent When First Opening Word and When Initiating the Save Dialog


The observation I'd like to ask about occurs on my desktop PC running
Windows 10 Anniversary Edition but I also notice similar behavior on a
Windows 7 laptop. The desktop has Office 2016 installed and the laptop
has Office 2013.

When I first open Word NVDA is often silent, rather than speaking the
title of the program which has gained focus. In other words, the
expected behavior is that, once Word opens and gains focus, NVDA would
verify this by speaking the title of the window, such as "document 1,
Microsoft Word." However, when opening Word after the system has booted
this does not happen. NVDA is silent and pressing insert+T just reads
"winword." At this point, if I move focus away from and then back to the
document window NVDA reads the title as expected. As an example, if I
press the alt key once to move to the ribbon and then a second time to
return to the document I will hear "Document 1, Microsoft Word."
Subsequent attempts to open Word usually cause NVDA to behave as
expected and the title of the document window is automatically spoken.

Along the same lines, I see similar behavior when attempting to save a
document by pressing ctrl+S. When I press this key, the "save" dialog
loads but NVDA is totally silent. If I press the alt key twice, NVDA
then confirms that I am in the dialog. Another NVDA user brought this up
during a recent computer users' group that I moderate and so I decided
to post these experiences to this group to see if others have observed
similar behavior. I'm wondering if an open ticket exists for this bug on
Github.

Re: NVDA Stopped Speaking

Its awfully easy on some laptops to mute sound. What you need to find out is if the system sound still works or not, if not then somebody needs to find the key combination to unmute it and this very much depends on the model.
If its nvda itself, then yes, you could try what the previous person said, and it should come back. What I tend to do these days on new machines is set up aportable copy in another folder and make a shortcut to the nvda.exe file in that folder. Place this on the desktop and add a key sequence such as right alt/x or something so when or if you screw up your installed copy you can just do the right alt and x and at least get the alternate copy running.

Hi Bob


At what time did NVDA stop talking? Was it after it was installed and
you were using it for a while? or was it in the installing of it?


I am wondering if you put NVDA to sleep: If this is the case on my
desktop, it might be the same for a laptop is use the NVDA key + shift
key + the letter S.


If sleep mode is on you will not hear NVDA say anything until it is
woken up. Use the same shortcut to wake him up. You will hear sleep
mode on or sleep mode off.



It is simple to get it mixed up with the one for synth settings which is
the NVDA key + the CTRL key + the letter S except the synth settins part
will come up and tell you which synth package you have.

Actually it cold of been set to No synth maybe if this the the case use
the letter E to get you up to the E speak synth so he starts speaking again?


Maybe if you tried a demo of a synth package it has expired and will
need to be changed to one that speaks like e speak..

.

You might of put NVDA to no speech if this is the case use the NVDA key
+ the letter S to toggle

him from off to talk.

Perhaps you hit the mute button by accident. You may have to get a sighted
person to look and see if the computer does as it should without sound. I
mean have the person move about on your desktop to see if it does as it
should. If it does you hit the mute button.

Reading rows and columns in Word table

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Hello all,

I am using Word 2016 in windows 10 and NVDA 2016.3

I wonder if you can help me with this task? I am attaching a sample of a
Word 2016 table that contains varying row lengths. This is a doctored copy
of an audit report table that is shaped like this for visual effect. I found
it difficult to understand until a sighted person explained what each row
was meant to convey.
I have placed a sample portion of the table in a dropbox folder. Here is the
link:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/jd3umb62iimo5su/sample%20table.docx?dl=0

Row 2 has data only in cell 1 and the NVDA cursor slips back up to row 1
because columns 3 and 4 have null data in them in row 2.

Next, the last four rows are similarly shortened and NVDA slips back up one
or two rows when it meets the non-existent cells in columns 4 and 5.

The "Alt GR" key to the right of the space bar does nothing in Word 2016 as
a table control moderator key. For this reason, I am navigating the table
using the left control and alt keys with the right arrow key to move right
along the rows and control + alt with the up and down arrows to move up and
down the table rows.

Are there other keystrokes that I could use in NVDA that would recognise the
end of row 2 and 16 rather than spill over onto the upper lines? I hate to
mention the opposition, but JAWS 17 does stop on the row even it is one or
two cells shorter than that above!

I should mention that columns 1 and 2 are merged in the last four rows but
neither screen reader recognises that fact and so calls the third column
"column 2" and the fourth one "column 3" etc. Is there a setting in NVDA
that can detect the merged columns?


All the best,

Cearbhall

is far from ideal since the cursor varies according the type of place where your mouse is over is not the same a windows icon, than a web page or an excel document, also it doesnt work well with several situations in web  pages, what the mouse over reads at some exact point is not the same if you use  this key.

If you use the command numpad insert numpad times, which I think is numpad asterisk, the object navigator will move to the position of the mouse pointer.  You can then spell the entire item by pressing numpad 8 twice quickly or spell the current word by pressing numpad 5 twice quickly.
The numpad commands for read current letter, move forward and read the next letter and move back and read the previous letter are:
numpad 2, numpad 3, and numpad 1.
 
I don't know how well reading is done if you read as you do.  Reading is not intended to be done in this way.  You might get much more efficient and pleasant reading if you use the intended method, the read to end command in a document or web page.  Do you know the command and have you used it?

It may be that I'm just misunderstanding what you want, but is this not already available with the flat review commands?

Not sure exactly how this is handled if you're using the mouse to get NVDA's placement to use the flat review commands to read character by character, but I'd be curious if one of the follow cursor settings would allow it to keep track of the mouse's position and then let you review that position with the flat review commands.

Just a thought.

Thanks,

A small intro about the user (me)

 

Been using NVDA since one year aprox, i am technically blind but have low visión 1/10 so I mainly use the “mosue over” function to read, but sometimes navigate using tab or keys too.

 

The situation that gives me a small problema is this, for example I am moving the mouse over some text it could be a web page or window file and since I use french, spanish and english sometimes i am not sure of what exactly said, for example a file name “francois Valluard.doc” or web page that talks aobut an autor and i want to know the exact spelling so i can find more info or whatever i need.

To solve this normally I try to use nvda+* to move the cursor to the place or copy the text and paste it into a notepad and use the cursor to read the wors and letter by letter.

 

My suggestion to solve this problema would be:

 

I acall “output buffer” to the text that is stored and read when you do some action, for example you move the mouse over some text you leave the mouse there and NVDA starts Reading this buffer, you can pause it with shift or clear this buffer with ctrl.

If would be very very desirable if you can have more control of this outbuffer, handle it with a cursor so you can read Word by Word and spelling.

 

Another example would be, you are in the file system, Windows explorer, you move the mouse up adn down, and nvda send info to this output buffer and read “ABC.doc”, i would like to get the spelling of this file, if I had control of this output like I said it would be easier.

 

 

Let me know if i been not clear.

 

Thanks, regards,

Martin

what you mention is what I said that i use but doesnt solve the problem:

"o solve this normally I try to use nvda+* to move the cursor to the place or copy the text and paste it into a notepad and use the cursor to read the wors and letter by letter."


is far from ideal since the cursor varies according the type of place where your mouse is over is not the same a windows icon, than a web page or an excel document, also it doesnt work well with several situations in web  pages, what the mouse over reads at some exact point is not the same if you use  this key.

If you use the command numpad insert numpad times, which I think is numpad asterisk, the object navigator will move to the position of the mouse pointer.  You can then spell the entire item by pressing numpad 8 twice quickly or spell the current word by pressing numpad 5 twice quickly.
The numpad commands for read current letter, move forward and read the next letter and move back and read the previous letter are:
numpad 2, numpad 3, and numpad 1.
 
I don't know how well reading is done if you read as you do.  Reading is not intended to be done in this way.  You might get much more efficient and pleasant reading if you use the intended method, the read to end command in a document or web page.  Do you know the command and have you used it?

It may be that I'm just misunderstanding what you want, but is this not already available with the flat review commands?

Not sure exactly how this is handled if you're using the mouse to get NVDA's placement to use the flat review commands to read character by character, but I'd be curious if one of the follow cursor settings would allow it to keep track of the mouse's position and then let you review that position with the flat review commands.

Just a thought.

Hellog again,

 

A few more thoughts,

 

I would call “output buffer” to the last thing that NVDA spoke and basically i would love to have control over that like we have with cursors.

 

Cheers,

Martin

Thanks,

A small intro about the user (me)

 

Been using NVDA since one year aprox, i am technically blind but have low visión 1/10 so I mainly use the “mosue over” function to read, but sometimes navigate using tab or keys too.

 

The situation that gives me a small problema is this, for example I am moving the mouse over some text it could be a web page or window file and since I use french, spanish and english sometimes i am not sure of what exactly said, for example a file name “francois Valluard.doc” or web page that talks aobut an autor and i want to know the exact spelling so i can find more info or whatever i need.

To solve this normally I try to use nvda+* to move the cursor to the place or copy the text and paste it into a notepad and use the cursor to read the wors and letter by letter.

 

My suggestion to solve this problema would be:

 

I acall “output buffer” to the text that is stored and read when you do some action, for example you move the mouse over some text you leave the mouse there and NVDA starts Reading this buffer, you can pause it with shift or clear this buffer with ctrl.

If would be very very desirable if you can have more control of this outbuffer, handle it with a cursor so you can read Word by Word and spelling.

 

Another example would be, you are in the file system, Windows explorer, you move the mouse up adn down, and nvda send info to this output buffer and read “ABC.doc”, i would like to get the spelling of this file, if I had control of this output like I said it would be easier.

 

 

Let me know if i been not clear.

 

Thanks, regards,

Martin

I haven't come across issues like this, across both windows 7 32 bit, windows 7 64 bit, and now on windows 10, with NVDA, so, while not sure what could be causing hassles, don't think it is being caused by NVDA, and, in terms of NVDA not reading a dialogue, what is your UAC level set to?


Stay well

I have noticed in Windows 7 and probably above that Explorer seems to just stop working. When this happens nvda is totally silent, one supposes due to there being no desktop or folders open. It does not even read the page about sending error reports it seems, just shuts up in mid word.
My first question is. Is this an nvda issue or just Windows being windows.
I have noted on various sites that Explorer can crash if multiple folders and software is all open at the same time, particularly if one of the Aero schemes are selected for the display.
However, it would be nice if somehow nvda could actually alert one to this sort of crash, which by pressing keys in a manic fashion I seemed to manage to get out of but quite how is a bit of a mystery.
I do have a very long log of this, but I'll only post it or a link to it if anyone is interested. I'm merely asking if the advice to use windows 7 basic scheme will fix it and whether its best to close folders which are open but no longer needed. I tend to set up all mchines to not open the folders in the same window as it makes it easier to cut and paste files that way.

The error sounds in search in windows 7

Using a snapshot it is really irritating to get an error every time you type into the search box of windows/f.

It seems to do no harm at all, but I do feel that maybe snapshots should have this specific error suppressed as non important to give us testers a bit of a break from earache!
