Windows 10 issues

 

Hi,

Since I started using NVDA on my new laptop, I noticed a few issues.

The first issue is, despite the fact that NVDA can now read mail contents in the Mail app, I can't seem to get NVDA to read the mail content without object navigation.

The second issue is, in the Settings app, when I open a setting, I won't know whether a category is selected because NVDA won't say 'selected'. On my Surface 3 NVDA worked just fine in the Settings app.

I tried restarting with add ons disabled, still the same issue.

Any help in getting NVDA to work properly with the mMai and Settings app? Also on the other note, the issue with the calculator app is still not resolved.


Re: Tamporarily disabling AVG protection

All references to numpad 8 should be changed to numpad slash.  So to move mouse focus to the button, the command is numpad insert numpad slash.  To left click the mouse, the command is numpad slash

To do the above, follow these steps:

 

  1. Press Windows+b to move to the system tray.

2Press enter on the Notifications chevron button.

3 Use arrow keys to scroll the overflow notifications list until you locate the AVG anti-virus button.

4 Press NVDA+numpad 8 to move mouse focus to the AVG button

5 Press Numpad 8 to activate the AVG context menu (Note: i can’t get the Applications key to invoke the AVG context menu, hence the 2 step process)

6. ‘Temporarily disable AVG protection’ appears in the Context menu list.

 

When you activate the disable option, a dialog appears with various warnings about removeing protection and instructions about re-enabling it.  You can also set a timer to automatically re-enable protection after a certain time has elapsed.

Taemporarily disabling AVG Protection correction

Chris Mullins
 

In my original post I made an error regarding activating the AVG context menu when I said use Numpad 8 when I should have put Numpad 9 to simulate a right click.  Apologies, corrected instructions follow:

 

  1. Press Windows+b to move to the system tray.

2Press enter on the Notifications chevron button.

3 Use arrow keys to scroll the overflow notifications list until you locate the AVG anti-virus button.

4 Press NVDA+numpad 8 to move mouse focus to the AVG button

5 Press Numpad 9 to activate the AVG context menu (Note: i can’t get the Applications key to invoke the AVG context menu, hence the 2 step process)

6. ‘Temporarily disable AVG protection’ appears in the Context menu list.

 

When you activate the disable option, a dialog appears with various warnings about removeing protection and instructions about re-enabling it.  You can also set a timer to automatically re-enable protection after a certain time has elapsed.

NVDA 2016.3 AND WINDOWS VISTA

Heaven Botma <heaven@...>
 

Dear Group


I was recently asked to install NVDA on a laptop with Windows Vista.  My colleague downloaded NVDA 2016.3 and we have tried everything to install it, reinstalled a few times and even installed as administrator.


This laptop was donated by someone and is exceedingly slow.  In addition, we had to remove AVG anti-virus so that NVDA could install.

 

Everytime I install NVDA it runs well up until the computer or NVDA is restarted, then it refuses to speak and gives the following error message:  A referal was returned from the server.

 

Finally, the other fishy thing is, that NVDA does not give the option to start up after log on at all,, not even in t general menu. 

 

Does anyone know what the possible problem could be and how it can be fixed.  This person needs the laptop as soon as possible for a learnership.

 

Kind regards

Cannot Read Table Cells in a particular website using Chrome

Kerry Fielding <littlemisslovely1973@...>
 

Hi guys.  I have an interesting problem.  I use a website to keep track of my ebay items and my suppliers’ prices.  They are adjusted according to whether they decrease, increase or indeed go out of stock.  The information on this page is tabular in nature and NVDA just won’t read it.  If I use the arrow keys on their own the info is read, but if I try and use the cell reading commands, I just hear “Edge Of Table”.  I have tried this site with other browsers such as Firefox and that seems to work ok, I have also tried  other websites with chrome such as eBay also and the tabular information is read out there

 

Your thoughts?

 

Kerry

Hi all,

I am still experiencing the issue where when I am replying or composing a
message, outlook 2016 will hang at random intervals. The only solution is
to reboot my computer.
I have raised the issue at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/5835

I have also tried outlook in safe mode but I still had the problem.

Well kids send your caviar wishes and dreams to either James Teh or Michael CUrren. It might be in NVDA 2017.1 next year.

Re: what's new in nvda 2016.3 tutorial:

David Moore
 

Hi,
I use Dropbox, One Drive, or Google Drive. Drop box is the easiest to use. Just put the tutorial in your drop box folder on your computer, and it will upload to your drop box account. Then, go back into your drop box folder and select the tutorial and press applications and go down to share link and press enter. A link will be copied to the clip board for you to paste right in the email. That way, we can all enter on the link in your email and download the tutorial to our computers. Hope that helps.

Re: Trouble installing 2016.3

Robert Kingett <kingettspeaks@...>
 

I fixed my problem!  In short, I had some AVG processes running, including the shield, when AVG was not installed. I fixed it by installing AVG again and making sure it was completely installed.
