Re: Issue With Word from 365 Edition

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Abbie,

I tried typing in the page number and pressing enter, but still no go.  I am using the control + G keystroke to enter the Go To dialogue.  Is there some other way of initiating this process?

I am using Word from Office 365 with NVDA latest build.

Enter. That works for me.

Re: Reporting to Microsoft?

 

The Feedback Hub app is the best way to report issues to Microsoft, and I am virtually certain that there is an Accessibility or Ease of Access category, perhaps both, that you can put something under.

It's also always worth doing a search in the Feedback Hub to see if someone else may have reported the same issue and up vote it and/or add comments to it.

Subject: [nvda] Reporting to Microsoft?

Does anyone know how I can report general accessibility bugs to Microsoft, other than Twitter? I've been recently having a bug where, if I have a screen reader turned on in windows 10, any screen reader, and I look for a document using the search function in the start menu, hitting enter does nothing. At all. Same for apps too. Some said it's an NVDA bug but I doubt it very much. I don't have Josephs windows 10 add on, so how could I write to Microsoft's accessibility team? Does anyone have a form link or an email address?

Re: Interruption

 

I always like an external board, my aunt has one.

Though my original reason to switch is because I game and bash, laptop boards do not last when this is done.

Neither did my logitech board the cord got all munted.

Now I use this gaming board which is mechanical, well I started gaming with it, then typing with it and suddenly while I can use the laptop boards, well I like the desktop keyboard and mouse and touchpads never worry me.

I think right now we should move this to chat if you want to continue this though.

To be honest, I have noticed that laptop keyboards have gotten harder and harder to use.

Mouse or no mouse.

There is a way of typing so you don't rest your hands on the pad but a lot of keys are half keys.

I don't care for laptop boards but that could also be tdue to the fact that while at home I use a gaming board and don't need to bother about the laptop.

The only way that idea makes sense is if a mouse pad is active on a laptop or if something is moving a physical mouse connected to a computer.  In that case, turning mouse tracking off won't help to a meaningful extent.  The mouse pad must either be turned off or physically blocked by something covering it or the physical mouse must be disconnected or placed in such a way that it is no longer changing its position.  Not doing so will cause loss of focus as the mouse pad moves focus to wherever it is moved, such as to the task bar or desktop or somewhere else.  Turning mouse tracking off won't solve that problem.

Re: Broken file list in open/save dialogs?

Richard Wells
 

Damien: Save as is a little harder. Something is definitely broken and
it ain't just in NVDA. Even Narrator acts this way when using that
dialog in QWS. I'll keep playing with it and let you know when I have a
better work-around for that one.

Re: Broken file list in open/save dialogs?

Luke Davis
 

Well I can tell you something I have done, not quite in similar situations, but to achieve the same thing:

Usually in a save-as, the first thing you are in is a text field where you can type your filename. In such fields, you can always type a fully qualified path.
So, for example, you could do: Alt+F, A, then type:

something.mid

But you could just as easily type:

c:\users\damien\documents\MIDI files\projects\something.mid

I will note that capitalization for existing paths doesn't matter generally.

Now, if that is a pain to type, and you find yourself using the same path often, you can do something like this:

Windows+R, and type:

subst z: "c:\Users\Damien\Documents\My MIDI Files\projects"

Now, when you do the save as, you can just type:

z:\something.mid

In the text field, and it will go to that folder.

Hth.

Re: Broken file list in open/save dialogs?

Gene
 

When you open or save a file, you can type the full path in the name edit field.  While I haven't looked into it, it makes sense that when you find and select a file to open, Windows is automatically creating the path statement as you move from file to file and follows the one of the file you select.  Most people don't know about path statements.  They are working with Windows as Windows, not DOS.

Re: Broken file list in open/save dialogs?

This is based on Windows Basics and is not limited to any one program.  Since you can't see information in the dialog, have all the files go to the same place, then move them where you want using Computer or file Explorer. 
 
For convenience, make a folder or use one that already exists off the c drive with a short easy to type name.  For example, if you are saving a file, open the save as dialog.  Type c:\sound\name of file followed by a period, then the extension.  In this example, you have created a folder called sound while in the c drive folder, not in a subfolder.  For example:
c:\sound\Big Girls Don't Cry.mid
Read the example carachter by character.

Hi Richard,
Since I also have the same problem in the "save as" dialog, is there
anything you could suggest for saving new files that I create?
Cheers,
Damien.

Maybe you want to know the command to invoke the app specific dictionary...

It is a shame you do not have installed the Add-ons documentation add-on...

With that you could easily know that the command is NVDA+shift+p for all keyboard layouts...

Re: Interruption

 

To be honest, I have noticed that laptop keyboards have gotten harder and harder to use.

Mouse or no mouse.

There is a way of typing so you don't rest your hands on the pad but a lot of keys are half keys.

I don't care for laptop boards but that could also be tdue to the fact that while at home I use a gaming board and don't need to bother about the laptop.

The only way that idea makes sense is if a mouse pad is active on a laptop or if something is moving a physical mouse connected to a computer.  In that case, turning mouse tracking off won't help to a meaningful extent.  The mouse pad must either be turned off or physically blocked by something covering it or the physical mouse must be disconnected or placed in such a way that it is no longer changing its position.  Not doing so will cause loss of focus as the mouse pad moves focus to wherever it is moved, such as to the task bar or desktop or somewhere else.  Turning mouse tracking off won't solve that problem.

Press NVDA+ctrl+m and uncheck Enable mouse tracking.
See if that fixes it. My guess is you're moving the mouse, and it's reading.

As far as I know, there is no application specific dictionary and no way to do what you want.  of course, someone may know something I don't know but I know of no such ability.
