A question from a user

Brian's Mail list account BY <bglists@...>
 

This person is using Office 2003, as like myself she finds it easier to use than the newer versions. However she is using Outlook for her email and I have seldom if ever used this.
Does anyone know a shortcut sequence to ask for a read receipt in this software. Not trickily nvda, but I don't have the software and she seemed to recall it being on the tools menu but its not.

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.

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?

Re: Looking for a good and acessible backup program

I have Acronis true Image. However, it requires the serial number on the
jacket of the disk to do what I want. it won't do versioning without
that. We can't find it. So i'm looking for software that doesn't have
that restriction.

Re: NVDA not reading Spell Checker fields

Quentin Christensen
 

Ah that makes sense - I wondered that you were getting such different behaviour from what should be essentially the same version of Word.

I must admit, and probably from having just been writing the Word training material I jumped straight there and never considered Outlook, my apology!

I have Outlook sitting there just waiting for me to set it up as I have been concentrating on Word lately, so I shall have to have a play with Outlook and see how it goes.  It looks like between you and Joseph, you've investigated it fairly thoroughly so I expect to find problems with spell check in Outlook as you have described.

The two places then to report this, are the NVDA GitHub issue tracker and Microsoft.

For GitHub, go here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues

I can see there is an issue relating to Outlook 2007 and spell check which looks similar: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/2070

For Microsoft, I have reported bugs both on Twitter to Microsoft Accessibility: @MSFTEnable and also via the disability answer desk: https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/answerdesk/accessibility

As I hope you know, I have the height of respect for Quentin’s advice. I am confident that he is really clear when he describes something. That is why I am careful to reply with full details. Your message gave me the idea that we may not be referring to the same office programs!

 

I have been talking all this time about Outlook 2016 because I meet this problem many times per day. So, I have just opened Word 2016 and created a new document full of errors. Guess what? I can see the erroneous text in Object view by following your steps exactly and it works exactly as you both describe. It even opens with the “Proofing Toolbar” which Quentin referred to yesterday. Numpad4 does, indeed, show the erroneous word.

 

Now I am back in Outlook 2016 and the spell checker does not work the same way at all! It opens on the offered correction. When I press NVDA+numpad minus to   “move to focus” I get “Spelling: English (Ireland) Not in dictionary” and a carriage return after it but no erroneous text. Numpad 4 gives me “Close button”.

 

Joseph pointed out last night that this is a known bug so I assume that he is referring to the Outlook version rather than the Word version of the Spell Checker.

 

So, I think we have laid this firmly to rest now. I will have to continue with the work around in Outlook using NVDA+b and look forward to a more friendly experience with correcting each document that I create in Word.

 

Thanks for your patience, everyone!

Hello fellow list members,

 

I am using Office 2016 under Windows 10 with NVDA 2016.1.

 

Since I recently upgraded to Office 2016, I find that NVDA does not speak some of the essential fields in the Spell Checker. Particularly, the text that has not been found in the dictionary. The heading is there but I cannot see what text is being held. When I hit tab, NVDA speaks the suggested correction. Sometimes, I can guess which text is being amended but not always.

 

If I press F7 whilst editing the message, NVDA will track the spell check pointer and bring the focus to the erroneous word. If I press escape, interrupting the spell check, I usually find the focus point on the erroneous word. I have the Spell check set to activate automatically when I press send, just in case I have missed a typo as I normally do!. In this case, if I interrupt the Spell Check in order to see if I can see which word is causing the problem, I land at the beginning or end of the document but nowhere near the erroneous word.  So, I thought I would ask my helpful friends on the list if anyone can suggest anything that I can do about getting the spell check to speak the erroneous text while running?

 

Please help.

Emergency: old NVDA list series are unavailable due to something beyond our control

 

Dear members of the NVDA community:

 

I’m sorry to say that, due to something happening on the old Freelists version of the NVDA list, surrounding lists such as nvda-translations and nvda-addons are currently unavailable. The situation is thus:

·         You cannot post to these lists.

·         You can still read list archives (they are safe).

·         Archives of the old NVDA list on Freelists is now gone forever.

 

Please stay tuned for updates.

Hmm, well the last time I tried it nothing much worked and in the extra snaps there were error sounds all over the place as well. My guess is that its some kind of port over from the Mac or one of the other platforms so nobody has bothered with any kind of api for blind access, it is what ever it compiles as I suspect.
Be interesting to know if it works on the other platforms with their screenreaders though.

Incidentally this last week a windows update came in supposedly for my intel video hardware, and failed to install several times with some error with lots of 8s in it. I had to hide it in the end as even with the advice Microsoft gave it failed to install.
I have found that any drivers seen on File Hippo are generally trustworthy, but these come on ads should be banned generally and I always use Ublock in firefox now to stop such runbbish from causing inaccessibility of web sites and silly sites for drivers.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA not reading Spell Checker fields



Hello fellow list members,



I am using Office 2016 under Windows 10 with NVDA 2016.1.



Since I recently upgraded to Office 2016, I find that NVDA does not speak some
of the essential fields in the Spell Checker. Particularly, the text that has
not been found in the dictionary. The heading is there but I cannot see what
text is being held. When I hit tab, NVDA speaks the suggested correction.
Sometimes, I can guess which text is being amended but not always.



If I press F7 whilst editing the message, NVDA will track the spell check
pointer and bring the focus to the erroneous word. If I press escape,
interrupting the spell check, I usually find the focus point on the erroneous
word. I have the Spell check set to activate automatically when I press send,
just in case I have missed a typo as I normally do!. In this case, if I
interrupt the Spell Check in order to see if I can see which word is causing the
problem, I land at the beginning or end of the document but nowhere near the
erroneous word. So, I thought I would ask my helpful friends on the list if
anyone can suggest anything that I can do about getting the spell check to speak
the erroneous text while running?



Please help.



All the best,

Cearbhall

On some of the older versions of word this sort of hing also occurs and often generates an error if you attempt to do anythingclever like using a focus mode.

Hi Joseph,



The issue is simply that NVDA does not speak the erroneous word in the spell
checker in Outlook 2016. The rest of the dialog is read out. Also the
proposed correction is read out in both focus mode and review mode.



The only time that NVDA seems to be able to speak the erroneous word is
within the flow of text from NVDA+b.



I am sorry to hear that this is a known problem since everyone else today
has been insisting that it is not a problem! I can confirm that it is
definitely a problem on my system.



What a pity!



All the best,



Cearbhall

Hi all,

Let's see what's up.

If I heard you right, you are saying that object nav doesn't work, and that
when you press F7 from Word 2016, NvDA does not announce misspelled word and
so on? If the latter, then this is a known problem, and it'll be quite
tricky to fix.

Cheers,

Joseph

Gene,



May I refer you to my earlier message in which I stated, very clearly, that
I had experimented with all the review modes? I also stated the results of
that experience.





All the best,

Are you using object navigation or flat review? I think it's called screen
review in newer versions of NVDA. Use object navigation. Move using numpad
insert 4 to go baqck and nunmpad insert 6 to go forward.



there are times when object navigation sees things that screen review won't.
This appears likely to be one such time.

Quentin,



The keystroke NVDA+b is the only tool that gives me the erroneous field.



It starts at the top of the dialog and, when it comes to "Not found in
dictionary" if repeats this twice followed by "alt plus" and then repeats
"not found in dictionary" once more followed by the erroneous text and then
continues on to read to the bottom of the dialog.



This is the only time when the erroneous word is spoken. It is not available
when I use the numpad to review the text even though NVDA+b has spoken it.
Yet, the offered correction is available in all modes of review.



Any ideas?



All the best,



Cearbhall

Use the review cursor to read the previous text to get the misspelled word,
and you can also read forward further down the pane to get the dictionary
meaning of replacement words.



To read the context of the spelling error, the best option is to press
escape to go back to the document, read the line / sentence / etc, and press
F7 to go back to spell check again (or F6 to move back to the pane).



Here's the section of the User Guide on the review cursor:

I'm almost finished writing the Word for NVDA course and included a topic on
several methods for using the spell check, including activities. The Word
course isn't available yet although the basic training for NVDA course is
which covers the review cursor etc - see: http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/



Regards



Quentin.

Re: How about Viber?

Dejan Ristic
 

I have asked the same question before, but I've got an answer saying that it is impossible to use Viber by means of NVDA. Some of my blind friends have told me so.


Friends, am I right?

Hi guys!

Got a question. I like Skype but, lately, I’ve been getting a
considerable number of dropped calls and fuzzy connections. We’ve had
quite a bit of stormy weather lately but, even on a good day, drops and
bad connections happen more than they used to. I was checking on
alternatives to Skype and found Oovoo. It sounds promising but how well
does it work with NVDA? Has anybody ever created an Addon for it? I
did see an audio boom entry from a blind woman who uses it on her Iphone
but I wanna do it on my pc and my Galaxy S6. Oh yes, I also heard
Oovoo’s sound quality is superior to skype. Hmm. Anyway, I’d
appreciate any tips, including more stable preferably free alternatives
to skype, anybody can give me. Thanks so much.
