Re: off topic. best alternative for M S Excel

Quentin Christensen
 

There are definitely more issues with Open Office and LibreOffice, but feel free to give one or both a try (LibreOffice tends to get updated more often than Open Office, so it depends on whether you like more frequent updates or a more consistent experience).

Which version of NVDA are you using?  We did put some work into making the last couple of versions of NVDA more responsive in Office, particularly 2019.1 and later.

Also, with Excel, if you are trying to open a large spreadsheet, maybe try opening Excel to a blank worksheet first - Excel is very complex, and depending on the contents of any given workbook, it can be very slow in general.

If you can find something specific which causes NVDA to crash to respond sluggishly, I'd be happy to look into it for you, especially if it is something you can give steps to reproduce.

Regards

Quentin.

Re: Advertising Windows that overlay part of the screen

 

I find that on the rare occasion I get these that very often hitting ESC closes them.

That being said, using an ad blocker such as uBlock Origin or similar, or a browser like Brave virtually eliminates these from ever being displayed to begin with.

Advertising Windows that overlay part of the screen

Christopher Gray
 

Hi:

I'm a Sound Forge user with Magix. Unfortunately, Magix has this horrible habit
of placing advertisements that overlay part of my screen. I can't find them
with NVDA or Cobra, not on the tray or just alt+tabbing around my open windows.

Can somebody tell me how to find and close these windows?

Chris

Wierd notification from Windows 10

Sile
 

Hello


I have started getting this odd notification from NVDA that just says 'activity' all the time.


Do you know where this is coming from and how I can stop it?

Double reading in tree items.

Hi!

There is really a fix for this situation.

While the new nvda’s version doesn’t show up, there is a work around.

Open eclipse and press ctrl+capslock + p to create a new profile.

Choose in the triggers’s methods thath it should be activated with application.

Your goal is to get this name since it matches the executable’s name that. You should copy and send us this name.

With this information I can send you na app module that match this name and this module will make nvda load the scripts made for eclipse.

Greetings community.

 

Currently i'm using NVDA 2019.2.1 and liclipse 5.3.0.

 

NVDA reads twice every time i move cursor up or down inside a tree element.

 

I'm using eclipse-java-2019-09 too and there is not any problem.

Hi


removing the short cuts from off that page did not work I am sure it done it on the google chrome version?


so for the moment it looks like the alt key + f4 key to close that extra page.

I thought it might of been the section under favorites doing it so have set them not to show etc but is still happening.


There might be some thing under settings that can be turned off?


I think the same was at one time happening to chrome  but I think I might of deleted the shortcuts? then it stopped on that other screen.


I would have to try it on this one to see.

Re: Double reading in tree items.

We have an issue for this:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/10001

Reading the issue, it looks like there is a pull request (someone has written the code which should fix it).  It looks like it's just waiting on being reviewed and approved, but hopefully that means a fix isn't too far away.  If you subscribe to the original issue, you'll be notified when the pull request is approved and the issue is closed, and then you can try the latest alpha version from our snapshots page to test it for yourself: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/
