Hi

 

You do not mean like the nvda key + the letter B

 

That key combo will read every thing on the screen from top to bottom.

 

Not sure if you mean this one? what is it meant to do?

Re: third party rss readers

 

In that case, you could mix the RSS feeds by using services like RSS mix or feed informer. although, feed informer is not for the technologically challenged.

The only NVDA command I know of is insert numpad 7. That takes you to screen review and document review. Other than that, I don't know of any other commands.

I subscribe to well over 100 rss feeds.  I do not wish to have to check each feed manually when they vary so much in frequency of posting, from feeds that post many articles a day to those that post irregularly.  I want all the articles aggregated into one chronological list, or at least one list, so I don't have to cursor down through a bajillion feeds.

I am not sure what the issue is as you describe it but I may just not understand.
As I say when I open RSS Newsreader I cursor down to the feed I want to look at. I then hit Control R, this then automatically opens up a list of updated articles arranged chronologically with the newest article at the top of the list.  My experience is that there is no delay in opening the feed using this method. The number of articles displayed appeared  to vary according to the feed properties. Sometimes the latest 10 are shown whilst with other feeds more articles are loaded.
The Player does not automatically refresh but then as you in effect manually refress every time you look at a feed this does not in practice matter at all.

By the way the address for the webbie suite is, I am fairly sure

Personally I am very happy with the RSS Reader Program provided free along with the other Webbie Accessible Suite of Programs.

 

There has been a recent slight tsimplification of the program to improve stability where I understand automatic Feed Refresh after the program has been loaded has been removed.

 

I do not personally find this a problem as all I do is cursor down my list of available feeds. I then hit control R which not only refreshes the feed rapidly but also open up the table of available articles in the feed automatically. then  I just  press enter on the Feed article and it will load in your browser.

Press escape in the article list and you will go back to the feed list.

Very simple but it works great.

 

I paid for the QFeed program from Accessible Apps but to be honest this Free program is far far more stable and fast at loading. RSS Reader has never crashed on me whilst this was a frequent problem with QFeed.  Also the support from Alasdair King is good whilst the support on problems with the paid for QFeed is non-existent.

I am in the beginning mode of learning NVDA. My first impressions is it works pretty well. Being a long time Window Eyes user I am used to the commands for WE and not NVDA.
Window Eyes has a command I use quite often to search a web page. In WE control shift f is the WE find command. Is there a similar command in NVDA? Is there any kind of comparison chart showing WE commands versus NVDA commands?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Rosemarie,

Based on your description I'm fairly certain that it's not your address book that needs tweaking, but the display name associated with your e-mail account in Outlook.

I'm basing the following on that presumption.  To shorthand this if I list something like ALT+F, I, A that means hit ALT+F, followed by I, followed by A.

1. Open Outlook and hit ALT+F, I, A  which will put you in the Account Information Pane.

2. In Outlook 2010 it makes no difference which account you choose from the dropdown before the next step, so you'll have to choose it again anyway. So Tab to the Account Settings button and activate it, at which point you have to activate the dropdown for account settings (don't ask me why).

3. This brings up the account settings dialog.  What follows presumes you have more than one e-mail account set up in Outlook.  You'll be able to omit a step or two if you have just one.

4. The e-mail tab is open, which is what you want to deal with.   If you have more than one account, you will want to hit TAB six times until you land in the accounts list, then down arrow through the accounts until you get to the one for which you wish to make a change and select it.  You can skip this step entirely if you have only a single account.

5.  Hit ALT+A, which at this point invokes the Change dialog.  You should immediately land in the edit box for "Your Name" which is what you want to change so that whatever name you prefer is used as the prefix on your e-mail address in outgoing e-mail messages.  If by some chance you aren't sitting in that box then hit ALT+Y to throw yourself into it.  Edit as desired.

6. (Optional)  Check out any of the other account settings you might want to tweak.

7. Hit ALT+N to activate the next button, this will do a test of your account settings, which should succeed if the only thing you changed is your name.

8. After the test confirms that everything is OK, hit ALT+C to close the test dialog.

9. Activate the Finish button to close out the process.

Re: changing my name in the outlook address book

If you want to experiment with different programs, you'll save time and trouble if you simply leave the old program installed and set up and try the new program.  You don't have to remove Outlook to try Thunderbird or any other e-mail program.  And you don't have to remove any accounts.
 
You may want to make another e-mail program the default program or you may not but except in rare cases where there may be some sort of conflict between programs, there is no need to remove something while trying something else.

The e-mail tab is open, which is what you want to deal with.   If you have more than one account, you will want to hit TAB six times until you land in the accounts list, then down arrow through the accounts until you get to the one for which you wish to make a change and select it.  You can skip this step entirely if you have only a single account.

5.  Hit ALT+A, which at this point invokes the Change dialog.  You should immediately land in the edit box for "Your Name" which is what you want to change so that whatever name you prefer is used as the prefix on your e-mail address in outgoing e-mail messages.  If by some chance you aren't sitting in that box then hit ALT+Y to throw yourself into it.  Edit as desired.

Re: changing my name in the outlook address book

Hi, Brian,

 

I tried the steps and they didn't work. I have outlook 2013 so the steps are probably diffferent. What could I be doing wrong?

Rosemarie,

Based on your description I'm fairly certain that it's not your address book that needs tweaking, but the display name associated with your e-mail account in Outlook.

I'm basing the following on that presumption.  To shorthand this if I list something like ALT+F, I, A that means hit ALT+F, followed by I, followed by A.

1. Open Outlook and hit ALT+F, I, A  which will put you in the Account Information Pane.

2. In Outlook 2010 it makes no difference which account you choose from the dropdown before the next step, so you'll have to choose it again anyway. So Tab to the Account Settings button and activate it, at which point you have to activate the dropdown for account settings (don't ask me why).

3. This brings up the account settings dialog.  What follows presumes you have more than one e-mail account set up in Outlook.  You'll be able to omit a step or two if you have just one.

4. The e-mail tab is open, which is what you want to deal with.   If you have more than one account, you will want to hit TAB six times until you land in the accounts list, then down arrow through the accounts until you get to the one for which you wish to make a change and select it.  You can skip this step entirely if you have only a single account.

5.  Hit ALT+A, which at this point invokes the Change dialog.  You should immediately land in the edit box for "Your Name" which is what you want to change so that whatever name you prefer is used as the prefix on your e-mail address in outgoing e-mail messages.  If by some chance you aren't sitting in that box then hit ALT+Y to throw yourself into it.  Edit as desired.

6. (Optional)  Check out any of the other account settings you might want to tweak.

7. Hit ALT+N to activate the next button, this will do a test of your account settings, which should succeed if the only thing you changed is your name.

8. After the test confirms that everything is OK, hit ALT+C to close the test dialog.

Hi,


CTRL R should work. I do find that you are not told when it is safe to type. I wish they would fix this.

Hi guys

Just a quick question. In windows 10 in the mail app is there a way of
replying to a message or even forwarding it on? I can not seem to find
any buttons or no matter what I do to reply to a message or forward one.
fIs this the way the app is designed more just to read and delete etc.

I did also notice that when you typed in to the message of the body plus
the subject line there was no key echo, but would read back what you typed.

I was seeing if it worked or not as one of my hotmail accounts refuses
to work now and no matter what I do in mozilla thunderbird to make it
work is no longer working.
