No it is not. I cannot get it to work. And I don't think it is a spell checker per-say. It does highlight the misspelled word and your screen reader will say"misspelled." but no amount of right clicking that word will bring up any corrections. I have not gotten it to work on discord, on twitter, in the xbox app, basicallyanywhere.

Hello,

There is a separate application called notepad++ which has additional functionality and is frequently updated. Some of its features include support for various line endings, various multi-lingual encoding and highlighting for various programming languages. This add-on is designed for this program.

Re: Free .RTF file creater

 

I will also note that with the rise of the grey market, starting in the EU, it is entirely possible to get MS-Office licenses for a song.  And Office 2019 is now commonly available on the grey market since there have been a lot of computers that had it installed that are already being decommissioned.

I just bought an Office 2019 license from the grey market (on eBay, in this specific case) for a residential client that I will be installing later this afternoon.

Re: Free .RTF file creater

 

Back to SoftMaker Free Office, it includes TextMaker (word processor), PlanMaker (spreadsheet), and Presentations (equivalent of PowerPoint).

I also hadn't realized that it allows you to choose a ribbon or menu interface.  I have not tested it extensively for accessibility, but it does have the "big three" program equivalents from the MS-Office suite.

you’re so kind. But, when I press nvda+shift+r opening a scanned

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe terminal vblank”. No more progress after
this. Your help as usual?

Resource Monitor 20.07 #addonrelease

 

Hello everyone,

 

Resource Monitor 20.07 is now available. The biggest highlight of this release is a change to how Windows 10 releases are announced. Instead of “Windows 10verYYMM”, NVDA will now say “Windows 10 YYMM”. This was done for consistency with Insider Preview builds and to properly recognize Version 20H2, the next feature update under development.

 

As always the new add-on update is ready for you by asking Add-on Updater to check for add-on updates (phew, a lot of tongue twisters…). Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

You probably can't get it as a stand alone program but if you install a JAWS demo, it will be installed and you can use it whether you are running JAWS or not. It may be more limited than people would generally want, but you can use it.

Yes, the program which was supplied with JAWS and which is still preinstalled with JAWS is called HJPad. It is pretty much Wordpad but with a spell checker. As far as I know there is no way to acquire HJPad as a standalone program.

Jarte is free and comes with a spell checker along with other features.

Jarte Plus is the premium version of Jarte which contains even more features. I believe that Jarte Plus only costs $20.00.

Hi Hettie,


You can go to http://www.ninite.com and download either open office, or libre office.  Both have word processors, are free of charge and work with NVDA.

If you are just looking for a free stand alone word processor, you can get one from http://www.jarte.com

Hope this helps.

You actually have one on your computer. It's called wordpad. Go to run and type "wordpad" sand quotes, and there you go, it should work out for you.

Re: Nvda addon Notepad plus plus

Jonathan COHN
 

Hello,

There is a separate application called notepad++ which has additional functionality and is frequently updated. Some of its features include support for various line endings, various multi-lingual encoding and highlighting for various programming languages. This add-on is designed for this program.
Best Wishes,

Wordpad does open many document formats but it doesn't have a spell checcker. JARTE is built on Wordpad and it has a spell checker and more features than just Wordpad. I havedn't used it much and I haven't kept it updated. You can read docx files with it but you used to need a Microsoft compatibility pack (spelling) installed to be able to do so because Jarte used, perhaps it still does, the old menu version of Wordpad for its base.

We don't know any specific ways in which the persson wants to use the programs so, although we can discuss different options, there is no way to address any specific purposes the person has.

True about WordPad, which I'd forgotten all about.

Even so, the probability of needing to be able to at least read other word processing file types or PDFs, even if you're not generating them, makes a more general purpose tool worth considering.

I'm afraid, Hettie, that you might not find Softmaker, especially the
spreadsheet portion, as accessible as you might need. Please let us
know how it works for you.
