Re: New Version 1.04 of Timezoner add on does not work for me

Gerardo Corripio
 

Latest version works as it should. I even featured it on a Spanish-speaking podcast I’m preparing to upload to the “ActualidadAccesible” site found at

http://actualidadaccesible.com if you guys know enough Spanish to give it a look. I posted two previous articles and podcasts about the NVDA screen reader already;this will be the 3rd in a series.

Asunto: [nvda] New Version 1.04 of Timezoner add on does not work for me

 

Using Windows version 1909and NVDA version 2020.1.  I downloaded the Timezoner update from the add on updater today. It is version 1.04 and when I press  the original keystroke for the add on (so, its not a input gesture) NVDA + Alt + T to tell the time in which time zone I have selected the add on gives no answer. I added a second time zone and still no time being told to me. I happened to have the previous version to install.  I Reinstalled that and it works. Anybody else having trouble with the update?Also,  Once I realized the Timezoner didn’t work downloading from the updater I did remove the add on and re downloaded again but to no avail.

Re: blank lines add on.

 

I read the original request as Gene did.  I thought it might be possible to control this either with punctuation level or possibly by adding a regular expression match for a blank line in the default dictionary, making its substitution be nothing at all, but neither of those methods seem to work.

If any other regex geeks are reading this, the expression I used to match a blank line is:  ^\s*$
I still have "blank" being announced when I am down or up arrowing line by line through text.

Use of NVDA with Microsoft power BI

Ahmad Ismat
 

Hi,

Just wondering has anyone used NVDA with Microsoft power BI ?

If so can anyone share their experience using it...is it accessible with NVDA ?

Thank you in advance.

Best Wishes,
Ahmad


Re: An NVDA-compatible Markdown editor?

 

There's none that is kept up to date, so the best thing is to use Microsoft word with the Writage add on.


Re: blank lines add on.

Gene
 

I have no objection to an add-on or feature in NVDA that would skip blank lines when you up or down arrow reading the next line of text. I don't recall seeing that asked for in the past and as I understood the question yesterday, it was how to avoid blank lines when down arrowing through a message, appearing that the person was reading line by line.

When reading documents in a word processor or mail as HTML, it is my understanding that control down arrow or control up arrow will read by paragraph, skipping blank lines in documents. I haven't used that feature enough to discuss it further, others may have.

Because it does not solve the problem totally. For example: what if I want to read the previous paragraph, but there is a lot of blank lines between the current and the previous paragraph?
An add-on like this would help me a lot.
Thank you!

Hello. Does anyone know if there is an addon where you can turn off

When you open Add-Ons Manager there is a Get Add-Ons button at the bottom.  You can also download NVDA add-ons from the NVDA Community Add-Ons Page or from private developers, then double click on the file when NVDA is running, and you'll be asked if you want to install the add-on.

As Joseph has already noted there are no NVDA add-ons for Libre Office (or at least there aren't on the community add-ons page, who knows if anyone noodling around with NVDA and Libre Office might have created an add-on, but chances are slim).

Hi,

Try (you need to use type cover or another keyboard for this):

  1. Open NVDA menu/Preferences/Settings.
  2. Scroll through categories until you arrive at Enhanced Touch Gestures (it should be one of the last items).
  3. Check if “enable touch” checkbox is checked.

Based on the description you gave us, it appears NVDA’s touch support routine isn’t recognizing some touch gestures properly. This might be caused by either touch support being turned off from NVDA (that’s what the above step was checking for), something going on with touchscreen hardware, or touchscreen controller driver. If it’s hardware or driver, I advise asking Microsoft to look into this (Surface Pro 7 was made by Microsoft).

Hi all,

I am using touch screens for ages now. So I tried to use the Enhanced Touch Screen Gestures add-in on my Surface Pro 7.

It does not work at all. Most of times NVDA or the screen does not recognize my single clicks with one finger. Also I have to tap with four fingers several times until I get into learning mode.

Most of my gestures are simply recognized as something else.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Gmail and Edge (Version 83.0.478.58)

Denis Sariyannis
 

Hi,
I'm using Windows 10 (latest), Edge Version 83.0.478.58 and NVDA 2020.1.
When I open the Gmail site (standard mode) and create a new mail I have trouble  with the edit field for the message. I press enter on it and focus mode activates.
After a while it seems that speech and braille display are completely out of sync. They show different things and I'm not able to set the cursor to a specific line/letter to correct something. Restarting NVDA seems to help for a short time but then I'm running into this once more. I cannot reproduce it but it happens often.
Does anyone have this too?

Best
Denis
