1. Get to the address box for the page for which you wish to create the shortcut, do a CTRL+A to make sure it's selected, then CTRL+C to Copy.

2. Go to the Windows desktop via WinKey+D, then hit SHIFT+F10 to bring up the context menu.

3. Find the New item, Shortcut subitem (very often hitting W followed by S immediately after the context menu appears will do this, and open the Shortcut dialog).

4. In the text box labeled, "Type the location of the item," paste the URL you copied in step one, then activate the Next button.

5. In the box labeled, "Type a name for this shortcut," enter whatever you wish to have it called on the Desktop.  Activate the OK button.

You now have a shortcut on your desktop that will use your default web browser to open that web page.

Re: python text editors

Jaffar Sidek
 

There is an eclipse branch of the Python editor called Leclipse.  It has no official support from NVDA but is as accessible as notepad in many ways because it is built off Eclipse, the official Java based IDE for Java and many more programming languages.  Cheers!

Re: NVDA+Outlook, and number of new messages

David Griffith
 

If you are talking about Jaws I have to use the same techniques as below using Jaws 2020 and Outlook subscription version to find out the number of unread emails. In other words it is the same as NVDA now unless there is a command in Jaws I am not aware of.

I was only an occasional user of Window Eyes so I do not know if this was a feature it had.

Many thanks, Cearbhall, for that tip. The screen reader I have been using

for years displays such information right away when I open Outlook. I guess

I will have to do some learning when switching to NVDA as my primary screen

reader.

Cordelia,

 

Close all open emails and make sure that your cursor is resting on any

closed message in the current folder.

Press control+Shif+tab to opens the "Folder List". NVDA announces "Folder

List minimised".

Press space bar to expand the list.

Arrow down to the folder you want.

Note that NVDA speaks the number of messages contained in the folder after

giving the folder name.

 

 

You can also open the Folder List by using control+y but this view of the

list does not show the number of emails contained in each folder.

 

All the best,

I thought it was the wrong thread but it is the right one.  I don't look at subject lines much in part because so many of them are irrelevant.
 
There are two Opera messages in the thread.  I thought you had replied in an opera thread, since the opera messages are immediately below the message I replied to.

locked Re: the opera browser

Gene
 

I should also add, for clarity and accuracy that until now, everyone has been telling you how to copy text.  If the link said click here, people have been describing how to select and copy those words to the clipboard.  What you are discussing, copy link location, is a completely different command and a lot of browsers have it in the ccontext menu.  for those who may not know, it copies the actual address which the link leads to. 
 
If the link text says Microsoft site, for example, and you use copy link location, you will get the address of the Microsoft site, where the link leads.

You are using shift f10.  That brings up the context menu and there is a command to copy link location in the Firefox context menu.  I just tried shift f9 and it toggles developer tools on and off in Firefox.  
 
You are discussing the same thing as someone else, how to bring up the context menu.  I described a method that may work but we'll see

Yes it still exists and I think it still runs on XP.

What? Opera browser still exists?  I’ve heard of it when I was on the jaws list. Not the list that Debbi Scales ran. She was for beginners and advancing users. I was on the list for more advanced users. There was where I heard about the Opera Browser. Can anybody use it? Or is it for more advanced users where they do computer coding? Sorry for the long message. I thought Opera was a thing of the past.

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.

locked Re: the opera browser

 

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.

Oh, okay. When I was on the advanced Jaws list. People complained that opera was not very user friendly.  I never tried it I thought it was for deep coding! I guess it got better as time went on. I never seen questions about it in windows 7. Not until now.
