A note: when I installed this, NVDA and Firefox stopped working together.  I had to close and reopen Firefox.  All is now well.

Where can I get info about what this addon does?

You haven't been spoiled.  It is a defective implementation.  As far as searching for another add on, anything free is illegal.

Iagree with you regarding the very poor quality of Code Factory's Eloquence.
It's very choppy for some reason. Maybe I've been spoiled by JAWS version of
Eloquence which sounds fantastic.

There is no work around as far as I know. You may want to do a search on
Google for: nvda tts add on to see what you come up with. You might be

I have just installed the 7 day demo of Eloquence and Vocalizer Expressive
Add-on for NVDA from Code Factory. However, the sound quality when using
Eloquence is poor to say the least. Vocalizer Expressive voices, on the
other hand, are very good. I do like Eloquence as my screen reader, so this
would be a show stopper for me. Is there a work around for this rather
irritating problem.

As far as I know, nothing can be done. 
 
There is a SAPI 5 version of Eloquence and you can try it as a demo.  It has proper Eloquence speech.  I have seen conflicting reports on whether it is somewhat unresponsive in Windows 8 and 10 but you can determine how it runs on your system from the demo.  Others will, I hope, provide information about where to get it.

Re: NVDA and antivirus: how can I uninstall mcafee?

Gene
 

It isn't paranoid nor absurd.  It is to prevent malware from uninstalling the program.  Increasingly, malware attempts to disable, alter, or uninstall popular antimalware programs.  Requiring the uninstaller to enter a captcha is a protection feature for the program.  I know of one other antivirus program that has such a feature and I wouldn't be surprised if many others do as well.

Hello, sorry but I really don't know how to solve this.
I have a laptop of a friend of mine in which there is installed Mcafee
antivirus.
The problem is that NVDA can't read anything in the security center of
the program, so I can't uninstall it.
I tried to download the tool that Mcafee provides for removing all, but
they decide to include paranoid and absurde security check, so you must
enter the charachter you see on the screen in an editbox that NVDA can't
activate.
So, are there some utilities that can uninstall a program without
passing from the original setup?
I tried glary utilities but the software simply runs the mcafee security
uninstall, so I am not able to continue.
Any hints?
Thank you!

How about going to Control Panel then uninstall programs and get rid
of it from there?

Not really a command - enter an address in to: field, hit end, and hit enter, and it generates a new to: field, but, shift+tab from there, and from the drop-down, I select from to:, cc:, bcc:, etc., and then tab back to address entry field, etc.

Re: replacing clickable with a sound?

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

No but would this not be a bit confusing. I use navigational sounds for Firefox and of course this makes links click when you click them. It does not make clickable click when you click them, so if you are saying it would be nice if clickable links clicked when operated, then I'd be with you otherwise I have no issue with it being read as clickable to define these as different from normal links.

Listening back to some older techtalks from rnib the other day, one person on there had all sorts of issues withOffice 2016, including the one mentioned and it affected other screenreaders as well. In the end she had to go back to Office 2013 which resolved it.
I don't think anyone could pin the weird effects down. She was using windows 10 without the anniversary update.

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.

Thanks! I turned off the reading pane, but that made no difference. I’ll have to ask my tech about the audio devices, but I don’t see how their configuration could be causing this problem, since all other items are being read.

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: replacing clickable with a sound?

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi again


Also check under the document formatting section for one called clickable or report if clickable and if it is unchecked you should not hear it heard. I am guessing the add on should still tell you via noise you will have to see if it does the job for you.

Hi


Not sure if this is the type of add on you are looking for. It is under development but it will do the different noises etc. You might have to turn off say the reporting of links etc in document formatting so you do not hear the sound then link if you get what I mean.


The link to this add on is http://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/audioThemes.en.html

I think there is also another called og sounds or something like that. I could not find it on the site but I think i have a copy here or it might be on my web site called Accessibilitycentral.net under the add ons section.


Hope this helps.
