All right, I was able to find the dialogue referred to. However none
of the file types are checked, which I assume means they are
unblocked.

I find it hard to remember exactly what I did to fix the problem. However, I did reinstall Office 2016 and after that the problem went away. Not a very satisfactory explanation I’m afraid. However, would you consider running a repair on Office? Failing that, deleting and completely reinstalling might help.

 

Before you do that, can you confirm that:

1.      You can create a new Word or excel file from within either program?

2.       That you can open files listed in the “Recents” tab of the file menu?

3.      That the “File / Open” dialog cannot focus on the directory where your existing files are located from within either program?

 

If these conditions are true, then you have the same problem that I had and I would recommend a reinstall of MS Office.

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Tyler,

The problem with turning of character echo is that when I work on the commandline, I like to hear the characters I type so we still need a real fix for this problem.

Re: Reading command prompt

 

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll give that a try...


Re: Reading command prompt

Quentin Christensen
 

I'll have more of a look into this. In the meantime, you can set up a configuration profile just for there command prompt which has speak topped characters and words turned off so you can have those settings turned on in other programs without needing to keep changing it yourself.

The Basic Training for NVDA had a section on this (chapter 13, Configuring NVDA).

Re: deleting file from downloads folder closes the downloads folder window

Dan Beaver
 

Well, I have found that if I open the downloads folder and then using the ribbons click on the delete or delete permanently buttons it works as expected and does not close the folder.


I have not found any other odd behaviors.


I am running windows 10 anniversary with all the more recent updates.


Thanks.

two sounds keep going off intermittently

marvin kotler
 

    Good afternoon list; Marv here.  I got a new computer; acer desktop running windows ten and nvda 16.2.  I have a minor issue; I hope.  This is the home edition.  I put in two sounds; one for open program and another for close program.  A Microsoft disability specialist worked on this thing for approximately two hours without resolution.  These are the only sounds that are effected by this intermittent problem.  If anyone has any ideas on what I could try, I would like to hear them.  Thanks in advance.
