Styles toolbar placement?

 

I'm working through the NV Access Microsoft word training book. I've found, for various reasons, that working with different styles is far easier than initially thought. But, the keyboard command to open the styles toolbar is extremely awkward. I tried to add the toolbar to my quick access toolbar, but there are so many, style, commands not in the ribbon, I can't figure out which is the styles toolbar. Does anyone know which one it is?

I mainly use the styles toolbar to select all text of a certain style. Is there a way to add that command to the quick access toolbar? I could create a macro to do this all for me, but that's way too many steps and the VBA isn't accessible with NVDA.

Yes, I uninstalled it. Thanks.

Re: Problem with an updating of some addons

 

Hi,
2019.3 is available in beta form at the moment.
Regarding recent updates: incompatibility is intentional - it was planned
for months.
I'll release Add-on Updater 20.01.1 which will advise you to turn off
automatic updates if you are using NVDA 2019.2.1 for now.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hello group,
Today I have found out, that some addons are available. When I wanted to
download the addon Systrai list, Nvda said, that a new version is not
compatible with version of Nvda 2019.2.1.
When I wanted update Nvda 2019.3, I found out, that no update is available.
What can I do for I could have a new version of Nvda?
Is a new version of Nvda stable version?

No wonder day before yesterday, when NVDA started, an update Window came up on the AddOn Updater; when I went into check for updates manually via NVDA+h and A, it insisted that there were no updates available and gave the Close button. So this is why this is happening then for those with NVDA 2019.2.1. thanks for the headsup. I thought maybe I was going crazy!

Hi.

To all of you that are getting invalid updates on addons, right now you should go to nvda/preffs/addonupdate settings.

Uncheck the automatic update checks, hit ok.

Save the settings as usual.

Then close nvda and then open it again.

This will stop the annoying popup asking to update.

Hello All:

    I had to go back to NVDA 2019.2 from NVDA 2019.3 because it was not working well with read all on any program either email, web browser, or any other program that uses say all to read documents!

    In NVDA 2019.2 it all works well!

    NVDA 2019.3 sure needs a whole lot of work before it is ready for prime time!

Re: Can't update Vocalizer with NVDA's latest?

Laughing Thunder
 

You cannot be stuck without a voice as NVDA will default to the Windows 10 voices if it can't load Vocalizer or any other synthesizer. I'll have to leave your other questions to others on this list as I don't have time to answer them right now.

I tried going ahead and updating to the new Vocalizer Driver, but because I’m still running NVDA’s latest stable version it won’t allow for the update, thus I’ve several questions for when the time comes to update myNVDA; I’m worried I’ll have to cope with a silent NVDA, and my family doesn’t know much of technology or computers, to be able to if this should arise, help me out in the meantime.

1.-What’s the best course of action, then when updating to the latest NVDA when it comes out, so that I won’t be without a voice, when the NVDA runs? If I install the Beta of NVDA in portable mode, and I update Vocalizer that way, will the upgraded voice come up speaking when the actual stable NVDA IS RELEASED?

2.-Because I’ve Vocalizer to run as my default voice, would you guys recommend then maybe defaulting to a windows10 voice to be on the safe side, and then update the Vocalizer Driver from that perspective?

Hi,
This setting will stop automatic add-on updates, but manual method is still available. You should not use manual method if you wish to stay with current add-ons for the time being.

Re: NVDA upgrade problem

 

Hi,

The intent behind that message presented by Add-on Updater was to warn you that 2019.3 will break compatibility with many add-ons, and there are add-ons that will be compatible with 2019.3 once released. That’s why I said yesterday that those using 2019.2.1 can ignore upcoming releases for now.

Cheers,

Joseph

No, but you can go to flight aware's website, I think it's flightaware.com and track officially flied flight plans and cruse altitudes and routs sans sids and stars that way. Is this what you wanted? You can even fly those routs if you want to as well.

Hi,

Yes to the first question – when you do upgrade to 2019.3, the new add-on updates will become compatible. As for the second question, it is in the works.

And for those who are currently using NVDA 2019.2, you mentioned about ignoring them for now, but when We install install the updated NVDA, will the updates be available still from within AddOn updater? And also isn’t AddOn Updater going to become a core NVDA feature, so as no longer needing the AddOn separtely?

Hello all,

 

The next wave of January 2020 add-on releases consists of letting go of add-ons I’m no longer maintaining. These include Easy Table Navigator, Golden Cursor, ObjPad, SystrayList, and Virtual Review. These five add-ons (plus Screen Curtain) were maintained on behalf of the community for a while, and in order to reduce my workload, I’m letting go of these. For some, another maintainer will be maintaining them, while others are looking for new homes.

 

Update details (updates will show up in a few hours from now):

 

  • Easy Table Navigator, ObjPad, Virtual Review: updated with modern NVDA features.
  • Golden Cursor and SystrayList: not only updated to use modern NVDA features, they are incompatible with old releases. For SystrayList, donation request dialog has been removed.

 

Note that all of these add-ons now require NVDA 2019.3 or later (if you are using NVDA 2019.2.1 or earlier, you can ignore these updates for now).

Cheers,

Joseph

For the benefit of anyone using an English (British) Keyboard layout, the Euro (€) can also be generated by holding down the right hand Alt key (Labelled “Alt Gr”) and pressing the number 4 on the top row.

Yes, also pressing the alt key right of your space bar in combination with the letter e will produce the euro sign

This must be on a European keyboard that has the ALT-Gr key at the right side, as on my US keyboard ALT+E, regardless whether using the left or right ALT key, gets me the Edit menu in most programs, but never types the Euro symbol.

For those who do not have a numeric keypad on their keyboards I'd suggest using the Windows built-in program Character Map.  You can use the search for field to search for a symbol by name.  Searching for Euro sign brings up only two characters, the Euro currency sign (which is not the Euro sign) and the Euro sign, which is named exactly that.  I haven't figured out whether there is a way to get the status line at the bottom to read the actual ALT plus digits key sequence one can use, but it does display.  Someone else may know that.  You can, however, select the character and copy it for pasting out of character map.  I often find myself doing just this for the degree symbol, as I never seem to recall the ALT plus digits shortcut for it and that character is not on my keyboard.
