Installing SPL

Dan Kerstetter
 

Hello all.

I haven’t installed SPL for quite some time so I’m at a loss.

 

When entering the serial number and code in the SPL registration field, do I need to insert dashes and spaces; or are they automatically placed where they should be?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

Dan K.

My colleagues request is below.

Hi Everyone

Although I installed NVDA some time ago, I have not used it very much but have had occasion to do so lately.

Is there an easy way of selecting a table on a web page? for example, like F8 in JAWS?

Is there a way to configure NVDA so that it displays the cell reference in Excel? At the moment I just see "Cell" which is not very helpful.

Thanks

Re: is there app or addon for NVDA on windows 10 for previewing files

Sarah k Alawami
 

except this does not answer the original posters question. On mac os I can hit space and hear the video, skim through it, read a word document, listen to an audio file. You cannot do this in windows. I cannot hit space on a word doc or video and know, this is right or no this is not what I'm looking for.

The fastest way to obtain such info (provided that Fil Explorer is set to “details”) is using left or right arrow keys to view file metadata information.

HI:

 

Thanks, it is a step forward in the right direction.

 

I discovered that—taking a detour—I can obtain information about size and type of file, date of origin and date last accessed, etc., by opening toe context menu and scrolling up once to learn about specific details of a file. It is doable but does not save time.

 

Moreover, with “report tooltip” turned on, I temporarily see the information I asked about. However, it does not display long enough for me to catch the details I am looking for. Is there a setting to control it?

I have the same question, for with another screen reader I can see type and size of files, date last accessed, number of file within a directory/folder, etc. I know I did not change anything but such information is missing whenever I use NVDA. As I am new to NVDA, I might not be aware of specific settings yet and would gratefully accept advice to make such information more readily available prior to opening files.

Hello,

 

 one thing that constantly annoys me is when I am looking for a concrete file like a word document, I have to open the up in word  or the respective application to take a look at the contents. Is there a app or addon accessible with NVDA that would let me preview a file without properly opening it.

 

I know mac \OS letw you preview pdfs, documents, video and audio files in the file viewer. Something like that for windows 10 usable with \NVDA would be fantastic.

Re: BrailleNote Touch Plus Not Connecting Via Bluetooth

Abbie Taylor <abbietaylor945@...>
 

I tried forgetting and re-pairing the device yesterday, but it didn't work. In the braille preferences, I had it set to automatic. So, I selected BrailleNote Touch or something like that from the menu of available displays, and it said it couldn't load the display. 

As I was writing this reply on my BrailleNote Touch Plus, it occurred to me that maybe there's another category in that menu that includes the Plus model that I might have missed. So, I switched to the braille terminal and started my computer, and what do you know? The BrailleNote Touch Plus  connected without me having to do a thing more. It's working fine now as I write this. I guess I should have re-started the computer yesterday when it wouldn't connect. Sorry for the false alarm. It's been one of those weeks.

Hi, Classic shell is maybe the program she is using? it can make it look like an older OS like say windows7. I would always advise people to not use these programs! learn the OS as if you have to work on someone else computer this shell will not be installed not a good idea.

I must agree, using win 10 is not bad at all once you get the hang of things.

Indeed.   But, if it's Classic Shell (still downloadable, but not
supported), now known as Open Shell (
https://github.com/Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu ) and taken over by
volunteers, or Start10 all of the above are accessible/have no impact on
accessibility.

One can also circumvent them, when desired, to use the native Windows 10
interface.

I find all of them to be awful crutches.

Also, one more thing. These programs don't make parts of Windows 10 inaccessible. In fact, you can still access Windows 10 settings, the control panel, etc.

Thanks again.

Re: is this program really accessible

Nimer Jaber
 

Hello,

I have no idea what exactly you are asking, but there are programs which will change aspects of Windows 10 and make it appear like Windows 7. Classic start or classic shell or whatever is one such program which gives you an alternate start menu to appear like Windows 7. I would say that these programs are not specific to blind people, but that's okay, isn't it? Unless you have a desire to only run blindy apps?

Thanks.

Hi NVDA users ken here.  I’ve recently run into quite the buzzsaw with someone.  An NVDA user friend of mine wanted me to help her tag a whole folder of music for play on a radio show.  I was trying to get her to change her default media player from windows media player to winamp and surprise! I’m trying to get her to find default apps in the start menu and she’s got a program that apparently makes windows 10 behave like 7.  I’d never heard of this program before and frankly am not so sure I’d trust it.  Does anyone know about such a program and if so can anyone confirm what I suspect that in fact this program really isn’t ment for a totally blind user?  I think she has rendered parts of windows 10 inaccessible.  Any thoughts?
