Re: a note of interest

I found the detect SAPI 4 synthesizers button.  I ran it but it didn't see the SAPI 4 synthesizer I have installed.  I'll test with another computer to see if this appears to be a general problem or a problem on this computer. 
 
also, since I only have one installed, I don't know if JAWS would see others.

I should add that in an older version of JAWS I used, I saw the item I'm discussing.  There was an item that would look for SAPI 4 voices.  JAWS wouldn't automatically do so.  But in a newer version of JAWS I looked at after writing my last message, I couldn't find such an option.  Whether it has been removed or moved somewhere else is something I'm not sure about.  I may do a google search to try to get more information.  It may be that JAWS no longer supports SAPI 4 but then again, it may not.

That may or may not be the case.  We don't know how you tried to use SAPI 4 in JAWS.  JAWS specifically has an item for recognizing SAPI 4 synthesizers.  Have you tried it?  I don't know if it will work but unless you have used this option, your statement is not based on correct procedure.

Hello,
Thought of renaming then to NVDA-ADDON, and just run them? Just a thought.

Let me also add that some download managers will change the extension to .zip. If this happens, change the extension of the file from .zip back to .nvda-addon. Once you do that, the instructions below will work properly.

Hi Michael,


"To install an add-on, go to the NVDA tools menu, then select manage add-ons. Then select install, navigate to the location where you saved the downloaded add-on and choose the add-on package you wish to install. Alternatively, if you installed 2012.3 or later on your computer, using file manager of your choice, navigate to the location where you stored the add-on, then press ENTER on the nvda-addon file you wish to install. Once you press Open or press ENTER on the add-on file, NVDA will ask if you really wish to install the add-on. As the functionality of add-ons is unrestricted inside NVDA, which in theory could include accessing your personal data or even the entire system if NVDA is an installed copy, it is very important to only install add-ons from sources you trust. Once the add-on is installed, NVDA must be restarted for the add-on to start running."

Kind regards

Quentin.

Emergency lifted - nvda-addons and nvda-translations are back to normal

 

Hi everyone,

 

Some of you may have seen a message yesterday that nvda-addons and nvda-translations are not working. As of now, both lists are back and are functioning (emergency lifted). Thank you.

Cheers,

Re: A question from a user

See this page. 
As far as a short cut is concerned, you should hear the sequence announced or the final part when you are on the item.  It is in options, but as in other Windows e-mail programs, what you see depends on where you are in the program.  In this case, you must be composing or replying or forwarding a message before you see it.

Re: A question from a user

Hi Brian,

From browsing the web (I haven't had Office 2003 for awhile personally):

To do it for one specific message:

While you are editing the message:
Press ALT+T for the tools menu
Press T to "Request read receipt".

To set it up for all messages:
Press ALT+T for the tools menu
Press O for Options
Press ALT+M for E-Mail options
Tab to "Tracking options" and press ENTER (There might be a shortcut key but it's not highlighted in the screenshots I can find).
Press ALT+R for a read receipt and / or
Press ALT+D for a delivery receipt

A delivery receipt means you'll get a message when the email gets to the person's email server (their company or their ISP)

A read receipt is when they actually read it - or rather, when they read it, most email clients will then prompt them that the sender has asked for a read receipt and would they like to send one.  The default is yet, but they can say no.

It's not usually required to have this turned on all the time, but can be useful for particularly important emails that you want proof of receipt of, or troubleshoot if messages aren't getting through.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Writing accents on a laptop

Ben J. Bloomgren
 

Maria,


Which language(s) are you attempting to write? I'm not a big fan of those alt codes, as who wants to remember that alt+0233 is an é? I've been known to install hundreds of keyboard layouts onto my computers. I've learned to streamline this nowadays, and I'm under ten. Seriously, I would look at using your language's specific keyboard layout or layouts. Some languages have more than one. French and Spanish have at least two of which I know. The control panel is your friend.

Re: Writing accents on a laptop

I must admit I haven't done anything like this (as I am only fluent in English), but I know in Windows 10, you can press WINDOWS+spacebar to switch languages (once you've setup more than one).  If you do commonly write between two languages, that could be an option?
