    Thanks to evefryone.  I know these are novice questions, but I'm sometimes slow to earn things.  Once I get it, I'll be fine.

The time command is the same as that in JAWS, insert, if that is what you are using as the modifier and f12.  If you are using a different command, perhaps you used the laptop layout in JAWS.  I don't know if the command is different in that layout.

I'm using thunderbird and have spelling errors.  This gets pointed out

use the F7 comand.


Also, I've tried to check the time, but the command I try doesn't work. 
I tried to follow the command list, but something isn't clicking.  I
guess I just get fed up because I'm so used to using jaws.  It spoined me.

Hi


There is also a sapi 5 version of eloquence as well. It can be installed
onto 3 machines and other programs can use it as well.


A link to it can be found on this page at
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/how%20to%20install%20additional%20nvda%20components.html

You can jump down by headings until you hear the section how to install
the speech platform voices etc. It is under that heading in sections.


Some are free there and others you pay for but I think the sapi 5
version you buys is there as well.

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

 

hi.
uninstall it in the control panel then remove files from appdata user
software and also registry if needed.

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!

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
surprised!

Re: Code Factory

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.

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

Re: Thunderbird comman for CC & BCCd?

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.
