Hi Brian and all the "faster than lightning" replies.

Think I will try SoftMaker as it has a wordprocessor as well as a spread sheet section. I prefer one app for all instead of different apps. Will try it and report back.

My problem with Wordpad is that it doesn't give me a page or word count which is often important to me.

I use jarte as well. Be aware though when you launch it you will hear "jarte plus." this is normal. You are getting the plus version which is free with a lot of limitation. For example the auto correct feature is not available and some other things, but I love and use this reader, a lot!

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: Recovering an Acapela activation key from unusable computer how’s it done?

 

Well code factory is ok as long as you lock and unlock your keys.

Its stated you need to do this when you activate its not that hard to do.

If it screws atguys or code factory will probably help you reset your count or clear your ids or something.

Mind you you may just have to buy more unless that is you use atguys which are always fast.

Re: Minor Problem: NVDA Closing/Exit Sounds Not Being Heard When Exiting NVDA

David Goldfield
 

I am happy to report that v1.6.3 of the Acapela driver has fixed the problem of the exit sound not being heard when exiting or when restarting NVDA. When I first loaded the Acapela voices there was some noticeable difference in that the pitch sounded very low even though it was set to 50. However, switching to another voice and then back to my preferred voice fixed that glitch, as well.

To be honest thats why I am all for sapi voices in the big synths but then I want to be a multiuser type deal.

I don't really need high quality voices for general admin, after all, crappy and fast with good performance is fine for my general day to day life.

Playing games or reading books, then yeah I need better voices, but espeak does what it does which is read the screen.

The issue with high quality voices is while you can use them to read the screen there is a delay when they do things and there is a bit of lag.

They are fine for books and games though.

Espeak is also good in dosbox but that could also be my old dos days.

Of course depending what the game is, you need a voice that fits.

Sometimes there are arcade and other games that while you can run a high quality voice, especially if these are mimicking older arcade machines, high quality kinda doesn't go, then something crappy and robotic sounding like eloquence fits that machine.

Beatstar for example fits a lot better with eloquence because I concidder it an arcade type unit type deal.

But it depends on the user and what you do of course.

For most of the time I actually need performance over quality.

As long as its read then its fine.

Re: Focus Issues on Facebook Desktop Site Using Firefox

George McCoy
 

That doesn't work for me. I face this issue in all Chromium-based browsers, firefox and the old edge.

One thing that helps a bit is to get into the habit of using nvda plus spacebar to turn off focus mode.  It almost seems that the escape key is getting through to facebook.

If I get stuck in the reactions area, I find that clicking one of the reaction buttons using the spacebar lets me exit focus mode using nvda plus spacebar without zinging off to the bottom of the newsfeed or list of posts in a group.

This behavior makes it nearly impossible to use facebook desktop efficiently.

Hi from me,


You say that you happen to face it on Firefox. I face it on Google Chrome. That's to say, when I come upon the like button in the reactions toolbar area while in the browse mode, NVDA automatically switches to the focus mode. And then, when I hit escape as you do, NVDA's focus is thrown somewhere else. To get rid of the inconveniences, I go to the NVDA menu, choose the advanced submenu, and then tab to the automatically set system focus to focusable elements to uncheck it just to stop NVDA's focus skipping of its own accord. When I do that, I can use www.facebook.com much better when I walk through the reactions area and the comments area.


Both Chrome and NVDA are the latest versions (NVDA being the latest stable).
