Announcement of Tracked Changes in Word

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi all,

I don't often use tracked changes in Word but needed to on a placement with a publisher back in May and I did again recently. I don't have any trouble making edits with tracked changes on, but is there any way to get NVDA to announce ‘Tracked Changes On’ when the shortcut keystroke Press control+shift+e is pressed to turn them on or off, the way that ‘Bold on’ / ‘bold off’, ‘italic on’ and ‘italic off’ are activated with control+b and control+i?

It'd be handy to know whether tracked changes were on before typing, especialy if you start editing a docuemnt in the morning, then break for lunch and resume editing ... yes, you can type something but, if tracked changes are indeed already on and you stop to check whether the word you just typed has been registered as a change, then the next thing you type counts as a second tracked change rather than part of the first one.

Thanks :)

Giles


Re: python text editors

 

Recommendations for text editors that are both Python and NVDA friendly are just fine on the main group, as is discussion of any NVDA setting(s) to make the two things "play well together."

Any deep dives into using a specific editor with NVDA, which will focus on that text editor rather than NVDA, should be taken to the Chat Subgroup.

Re: NVDA and google chrome

 

Don,

            What search engine are you using?   I have noticed recently that my personal favorite, DuckDuckGo, has revised the format of its search results in a way that makes even selecting something with the mouse far more difficult/frustrating.

             It's up to those coding the search engines how they choose to present the results, and something might have been tweaked.  I can't say this for certain, though.

Hello All,

             It's time for this topic to come to a close.

             I've used Opera, and like it, but it's just another among many Chromium-based web browsers, and since NVDA and other screen readers have long ago become proficient at working with Chromium then any browser based upon same tends to be completely or very nearly completely (if they've done a few odd bits) accessible.

              But the topic strayed far away from anything that can be even vaguely considered as NVDA-centric quite a while ago.  Please take this to the Chat Subgroup if anyone wishes to extend the conversation.

I installed the opera browser yesterday and really like it. Yes, it's extremely fast and that's great! It's my default browser now.

Well opera is not just for that opera can also be used as your every day browser and it is very fast.  If you try it I think you will all like this browser and you mite make it your default.

NVDA and google chrome

Don H
 

Running Win 10 1903 and latest vversions of Google Chrome and NVDA.
My normal way of using Google Chrome is to enter my search data and hit enter. Then I use the h key to move by header to each of the results. Noticing today that when I now do this NVDA says title before each search result when I hit the h key. Never noticed this before. Did I somehow change this to cause NVDA to say title?

Here are two possible ways to bring up the context menu. 
 
Try unloading and running NVDA.  Now and then, a screen-reader isn't running properly and keeps a command from functioning.  Rarely, I've had the context menu not open and unloading and running the screen-reader solved the problem.
 
Regarding how to bring up the context menu, if the standard keyboards methods don't do so, try the simulated mouse.  Route the mouse to where you are with the command numpad insert numpad slash.  Hold numpad insert and press slash.  Then, after releasing both keys, move one key to the right of the numpad slash and press it.  That is the numpad star and it is the right mouse click key.  See if the context menu comes up.

I don't know why NVDA always defer reporting the TrayTip notification.

For example,
Now I am editing the email to send to you,
If I press ctrl alt h to bring up the menue and selected clear m3u file,
NVDA will say something like
composing email, and read the title of Thunderbird, and read the current line in focus, then read the notification.

I would like NVDA to read it immediately, do you know any way to fix this?
Thanks.


Re: Urgent help needed NVDA was not able to loa Microsoft SAPI 5

Mr. Wong Chi Wai, William <cwwong.pro@...>
 

Hi,
I try to make NVDA clean without addons and here is the log.

The fact is, if I run narrator, Microsoft Anna works well with narrator.
 


Quentin Christensen 於 8/11/2019 14:09 寫道:

If you have another SAPI 5 voice installed, NVDA might try to load that first.  If there is a problem with that (eg if it's a SAPI 5 that's locked to another program) then it could cause problems.  From your log, it looks like it's trying to load Microsoft Anna though so that's not the problem.  I'd be interested in seeing a log with add-ons disabled.

I did a Google search for something like repair SAPI5 and I found results discussing how to do so.  If you have questions about the safety or reliability of information or recommended utilities on various sites, you might want to ask before trying something.  it is a good idea to be careful if a site offfers something for download to solve a problem and not to download and run it unless you are confident the site is safe and the program or utility is not malicious.

SAPI is a Microsoft API for communicating with synthesizers that use it.  So contacting Microsoft might get you the solution.  I was hoping someone might have known about the repair utility, but so far, there hasn't been any information.

But the SAPI 5 that I cannot load is the Microsoft SAPI5.

How could I deal with that?

Contact Microsoft?


Gene 於 8/11/2019 1:53 寫道:
Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the actual synthesizer program, as well as making sure files that may be left after the uninstallation are removed before reinstalling?  Also, I recall, many years ago, seeing something about a way to repair SAPI 5.  Perhaps others may know more.  I think it was a utility but I don't recall much of anything except that that may be the case. 
 
Also, you can contact the place where you got the synthesizer and ask about the problem as well as how to repair SAPI 5.

Hi,
The error message is
Synthesizer error
Could not load the sapi5 synthesizer.

I have tried:
1. restore NVDA default setting
2. reinstall some SAPI 5tts

And they failed.


Quentin Christensen 於 7/11/2019 15:27 寫道:
I wouldn't immediately jump to reinstalling Windows just yet.

Can you use eSpeak NG?  Also can you give us the exact error you get when you try to load a SAPI 5 synthesizer?  Have you installed, updated or uninstalled anything recently?

The log didn't make it through - they can't be sent to the list, but you can send it to me offlist at info@... if you like.

If it's a language issue, if you open NVDA's general settings (assuming you can still use any of NVDA?) can you set the language to English instead of default?  And if that works, it might be worth checking what your Windows language is set to just in case that has changed.

Regards

Quentin

Hi,

Very annoying to me.

Today I wake up to find that my NVDA suddenly doesn't speak English.


If I try to set Microsoft SAPI 5 as the speach engine, NVDA display
error message that the speech synth was not able to load.

The problem also exist if I try to load RH voice.

For details, I have included in the log file here.

I am very very upset now. Could any one offer me a fix for it. Many thanks.

William

Hi.  If you have a keyboard with a specialized context menu key, then it is one key to the left of the right control key.  The alternative is to press shift+f10.  Cheers!
