Is the libera office spreadsheet readable with NVDA? I tried it with another screen reader and could not read it at all. I could read the Open Office spreadsheet but do have some problems with the word prrocessor and the other screen reader.

hi.
libreoffice is accessible and you dont need to install java-java access briedge to make it accessible.
just download libreoffice and enjoy it without any additional program, no cust, open source, very great project, and support for more than
110 languages.
i am shure that libreoffice is the best selection!
thanks so much for your asking and god bless you.

I just reset my son's windows10 laptop last night because he downloaded something he should not have and it messed it up. so i did a full reset telling it to rip everything apps files photos videos documents you name it rip it all out and start over with a fresh windows10. and so it did.
so i decided to make google chrome his default web browser and i installed NVDA onto the fresh windows10 as well. my question is when he gets into school next year I would rather not be bad and pirate microsoft office because 1. its very big and 2. libreoffice is very little and can also handle the microsoft documents. i also figure ok I'm making him go google so might as well go the whole way. so my question is this, 1. is google drive client application accessible with NVDA? if not will i need java and the java access bridge to access libreoffice?
and 3. will libreoffice let NVDA read charts and graphs in spreadsheets like it does in ms-excel and if not could this be added into NVDA so libreoffice with NVDA will behave much like microsoft office? or for accessibility sake should i just buy ms-office for my own win10 machine just for viewing and editing word files and spreadsheets accessibly but for my son just let him use libreoffice and google docs inside his chrome web browser since i found docs is not accessible with NVDA under chrome?

When I am writing as a list member and not sending moderation

on many lists, moderators may be treated differently even when they

don't want that to be the case with me.

I am looking forward to working with Nimer to keep the list running

Hi
I have had my hands full for a few days.
The portable nvda doesn't read the tree view in device manager on windows 7 x64.
Here is a work around:
create a desktop short cut for c:\nvda\nvda.exe
go to properties advanced and check the box run as administrator
u a c keeps coming up but do alt + y and nvda starts.
The tree view in device manager is now accessible using nvda portable.

Re: Navigating amongst controls on the main screen in Webinaria

Jacob Kruger
 

Ok, like said, just used it for simple recording, and it seemed to be just using system's audio output.

Suppose there might be a keystroke to bring up options, etc., but, not sure what that is/would be

Alternatively, you could use virtual recorder at same time, since it's specifically an accessible recorder for recording either/both system audio output, along with microphone, or just microphone, etc.?

Issue there would be getting audio to match video when you then merged the two later on.

Re: Navigating amongst controls on the main screen in Webinaria

Jacob Kruger
 

Been a little while since last really used it, but, think it just recorded system audio output - you could set system audio to listen to microphone, but, remember main thing was extracting audio from video clip using audacity, tweaking it a bit, and reassigning it to video clip using virtual dub, and then reconverting that video clip to something a lot smaller - ongoing issue with virtualDub is trying to get it to use alternative encoders, but anyway.

Just fired up webInAria, and if read dialogue/window, see it offers setting to record microphone, but, not sure that would then include actual system output as well, and, yes, the interface isn't perfect, but, like said, like that it offered global hotkeys to start, pause and stop recording.

Issue in reading the font style of the word

Mr. Wong Chi Wai <cwwong.pro@...>
 

Hi,

This is a Chinese user.

I just recently found out that if I press NVDA +f to read the font style of words in Microsoft Office, it will only tell me the font style of the English word. Even if I have selected the Chinese word, it will also tell me the English font style, not the Chinese font style.
