Re: Console and NVDA 2019.3 beta 1

I can report that it reads the console for me just fine, on a Surface 4
Pro, or at least, that's what this Surface claims to be. My console UIA
support is set to automatic. The checkbox about using legacy text is
checked. These are probably 2019.3-Beta1 default settings, since I
didn't change anything. Hope that helps.

If that didn't fix it, try going into NVDA's advanced settings and
disable the UIA console. It's some new feature added recently that
still has some bugs to iron out.

Under what's new for 2019.3 it says that you can get passwords to speak under NVDA advanced settings. Is this for NVDA to speak passwords on such web sites as banking and such?

I'll check it out. I haven't updated to the beta yet because I was
waiting on Remote like everybody else, but I can update to the beta and
test. I'll try to get to it later tonight.

Hi Gary,

 

I can reproduce that, it looks like it's been an issue for awhile: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/8961  The reason you are hearing the noise is because NVDA plays a sound when an error is recorded to the log in Alpha or Beta versions.  The errors don't seem to affect the actual running of NVDA or Outlook, so running a stable version of NVDA, you wouldn't have noticed anything, even though the errors were still generated.

 

While it would still be worth aiming to fix these errors, because they don't impact use aside from the error generated, it doesn't tend to be as high priority as something which does affect using the software.

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

For emoticons, the addon helps to insert them without remembering each simbol. As for emoji, if you use Windows 10, there is something called the emoji panel. To access it, you use windows plus . period, and pick the one you want to insert either by choosing a category, or just by searching for an emoji. Your recently used simbols will always be at the top.

Many thanks to all of you who took the time to respond to my query. I am very glad to have found this supportive community.

Gene, many thanks for alerting me to your tutorials, which I will check out. Yes, the Skype add-on operating with Skype 7 (Classic) let you read up to to 10 messages by using the respective number and key combination. Skype 7 is no longer available despite a big outcry amongst its dedicated users. I am glad to know that Skype 8 is working all right with NVDA on Windows PCs.

Hi Cordelia


Skype works well without the add on.


I use the desk top version of it . I think the add on would let you read
the last 10 messages? by using a key combo.


the skype version with the pc you need to do a lot more tabbing etc for
it that one I have not been back into for a while but do have tutorials
on my website for them. I do not even think at the moment skype 7 can be
used I heard it was going to be end of life then extended so it could be
on the trash heap now.


Those tutorials can be found on my web site at
