Windows 10 App Essentials add-on 16.09,1 released

 

Hi all,

 

I'm delighted to announce the release of Windows 10 App Essentials 16.09.1, a minor bug fix release for WinTenApps 16.09.x. The new release can be found at:

https://github.com/josephsl/wintenApps/releases/tag/16.09.1

 

Changelog:

 

* Appearance of suggestions for search fields is now brailled (mostly for apps such as Settings).

* NVDA no longer announces "read-only" for Calendar's appointment name field and Mail's message content.

* In Maps, fixed an issue where one could not use TAB key to move between controls.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

 


Re: the windows 10 mail app saying edit read only

 

Hi,
Around this time tomorrow, you'll find that NVDA will not announce one of them.
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: Slightly OT but gmail pop question about downloading

David Moore
 

Hi,
Brian Vogel wrote such a good message the other day explain IMAP verses POP email downloading. Here is what I can remember.
IMAP allows you to read your emails in all of your devices, and they are kept on the Gmail site until you delete one of your emails on one of your devices. That is what is so great about IMAP. Now, with POP, as soon as you download your emails on to one client, the emails go away in the Gmail site. This does not allow you to download your emails onto a second device, because the emails are gone in the Gmail web site already, just after downloading them to one device. With IMAP, the emails stay in the Gmail web site even if you download the emails on to ten devices and start deleting them. So, IMAP is so much better than POP. Now, here is the thing about IMAP. With IMAP, you cannot make message rules, filters, in your client. You have to do all of that on the Gmail site. You have to get on the Internet and get into your Gmail account and make the message rules there. When you do that, Your client will automatically work according to the message rules that you set up on the Gmail web site. That is so important. With POP, that is when you create the message rules in the client. With Gmail, just get on the Gmail web site and find the settings link and press enter. Now, find the setting that says IMAP or POP and press enter and activate the IMAP button. This will cause Gmail to be delivered to your devices in IMAP form. I hope that helps, and clears some things up. By the way, It is not just Gmail that works this way, Everything works the same way that I describe with Yahoo mail, Hotmail, or what ever email service you are using. Also, the Gmail web site, works like an on line Google App like Google Docs. You can use the on line Gmail site by turning on focus mode with NVDA, and totally use key commands with the on line site. NvDA works great by using Google's key commands with NVDA. When you do this, you get an experience just like using any other Google App. Just type:
mail.google.com
Get into focus mode, and you can press the question mark to bring up all of the key commands you can use on the gmail app, I will call it. It is an on line app, just like Google Docs. I did not know this until the other day. Check that out as well.
Take care,
David Moore

Hi friends,


I am facing a strange problem: I was downloading a bunch of 100 or more mails in Windows Live Messenger from gmail using pop3. This is what I do daily without problem. However, this one time the signal broke and the downloading got disconnected. From then on, I am only downloading one or 2 mails at a time. I know there is a process to rectify this but have forgotten the same. Could some kind soul help me please? Sorry for trouble and thank you in advance.

With best wishes,

Re: SECTION BREAKS AND PAGEBREAKS

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Christo,

This is a known issue (and always good to have clarification from someone else too) - one of many actually picked up during writing the Microsoft Word with NVDA material (which is due out shortly).  We didn't get a fix in time for NVDA 2016.3 but I'm hoping we'll be able to close a lot of these for NVDA 2016.4 later this year.

If you'd like to be notified about the status of this bug in particular, the issue on our tracker is: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/5946

There is a "Subscribe" button on that page where you can subscribe to be notified of updates to the issue.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi All

 

I have a huge problem in MS Word. When a section break is inserted, NVDA announces it as a pagebreak.

 

It is a problem because in the line of training we present here at Kaleidoscope College, the students need to know when it is a pagebreak and when a section break, and also what kind of section break.

 

I noticed that many problems are solved by creating addons. Would it be possible for someone, please, to create such an addon.

 

It would be highly appreciated.

 

Thank you and Regards

Re: Skype for Business

 

Hmmm I doubt anyone on here has.
Firstly to use skype for business you need a business account.
A standard mortal user can't just get one, you need your business admin to give you the account they use and I have no idea how they get one.
It used to be before lynk became skype you could get skype for business and run a standard account but you can't do that now.

Odd, do you ever use file explorer for other things (press Windows+e)
and have you noticed any other issues?

Also which version of Windows are you running? I'm using Rhett latest
fast insider bold of Windows 10. I haven't specifically looked lately,
but I know I've had various Windows, mostly settings Windows, which
either don't respond or close unexpectedly in various builds. I wonder
if this is something similar?

I'm using the latest version of Windows 10 insider build

Re: Windows 10 calculatore

 

Right now I don't need any calc that can perform statistics, as Excel is enough for it, especially Excel 2016 which can draw some new charts like box plot. As I mentioned earlier when I tried a fresh new copy of NVDA on a Windows 10 virtual machine NVDA reads the calculator buttons fine, both with and without the Windows 10 App Essential add on. But NVDA did, however, refuse to read the changes made to the desplay, E.G when I pressed the backspace key to delete a number or the escape key to reset the display to 0.


Re: Windows 10 calculatore

Michael
 

When you enter an expression to be evaluated, it can’t contain a variable such as x or y or z. It can’t solve an equation. At the time I wrote this material, I didn’t find any statistical functions. Google may have added more capability over the past ten years.

In the 1980’s Freedom Scientific was a company based in Arlington Texas. It had a self-voicing engineering spreadsheet. It sat down and used it for about 30 minutes. It could solve equations. It could differentiate and integrate. The Scientific part of the company name was meaningful. Then another company bought it, and didn’t market this engineering spread sheet application. Too bad!
