Hey guys, Molly here again.

I am trying to edit a powerpoint presentation I’m working on with some of my classmates. So far we have two slides. When I press control plus N to create slide three. NVDA says slide one. I started editing the slide. But when I saved it, it appears to have gotten saved as a separate powerpoint from the one we were working on. Basically, my new slides do not show up in the powerpoint we’re working on. Howdo I edit the powerpoint we already started without creating a new presentation?

I hope this makes sense.

You can use "T" to go to next table.
You can also use "N" to go to the next block of text after links.
Or, the easiest way, you can simply hit "CTRL+NVDA+F" then type something like "download", this way you'll jump directly to the first occurrence of this word and with luck this will be the link you're after. In case it's not, simply repeat your search until you find it.

Hi
is this the first time you have ever installed NVDA or have you had a earlier version.
the file that wouldive come down would be named nvda 2019.1.exe and when you click on it or try to get it to load it will make a musical sound then come up with a documentation screen. YOu will need to agree to it by pressing the space bar then tab to the first option which will be install to your computer then press the enter key. If it seems to be getting stuck installing it it might be that the UAC screen has come up and nvda can not see it if this is the case use the ALT key + letter Y to say yes to it and it should keep on installing then say it has been installed with a ok button.
Or is it just not going any further after you hear the sound?

The em-dash Symbol with NVDA?

David Russell
 

Hello Everyone,

Brian and Richard, thanks for your further help with the en-dash and
em-dash. I will read up concerning the differences.

Someone on another forum, stated if in Facebook, three hyphens or
dashes in a row will convert to em-dash in text. Again, I am using
Jarte, which is based on Notepad. Thanks.

Are you attempting to use the outline view or the slide view?

When in slide view I tend to create new slides by using shift-f6 to
switch to the thumbnail.
Use up and down arrows to find the place I want to insert the new slide
Then use the context menu key and use the create new slide or
duplicate slide depending on whether I want a blank slide or to start
with the current slide.

Strange, what version of nvda are you using?

Can you enable the audio check box and try again, and send me the log?

I use for example the last Alpha with win10 and it works correctly.

Does anyone else do this?

Thanks

Ok, If I disable the following checkbox:

the NVDA+w works as expected. With the checkbox enabled, nothing happens. I tried redownloading sounds, then I tried deleting and redownloading sounds. Still, none of that works. It is only when I completely disable that checkbox that NVDA+w works as expected. As I said previously, this is only present in the latest Weather Plus update.

Re: The em-dash Symbol with NVDA?

 

And, a self-correction here on Word's "self-correction":    word space hyphen space following word space results in an en-dash being generated between each word with the correct blank space on each side of the en-dash

word double hyphen word space results in an em-dash, with no spaces, which is the proper format, being generated between two words

It's easy for me to see the difference between a hyphen and an en-dash, or em-dash, but when there's only an en-dash and an em-dash visible the difference in length is not so much that my eye easily catches it.

Re: The em-dash Symbol with NVDA?

 
Edited

An em-dash can generally be inserted in most word processors by hitting a space, typing a hyphen, hitting a space then typing the next word then hitting space.  The hyphen (or en-dash) gets converted to an em-dash when the space is hit after the word following the hyphen you originally typed is pressed.  It has worked this way in MS-Word for as long as I can remember now, though the last version that I used for years before 2016 was 2010, and I have no specific memory of what Word 2007 did.  If you use double hyphens (with no spaces) these get converted to an em-dash whether you have spaces before the double hyphen or after the double hyphen but the conversion still happens at the same point in time, when you hit the space bar after the word that follows the double hyphens.

It's impossible to say whether this works in e-mail as most clients will allow you to tweak all sorts of settings.  Outlook is set up by default to do the double dash conversion to an em-dash.

For anyone curious about the difference between an en-dash and em-dash, and when each should be used, see any one of the search results from:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=what+is+the+difference+between+an+em-dash+and+an+en-dash

The em-dash Symbol with NVDA?

David Russell
 

Hello NVDA Group,

I do some writing avocationally, and the m- symbol is a popular way to
insert pauses as opposed to other punctuation marks. Can someone
advise me on how to
reproduce the symbol for the m- key? Will it work in composing email
as well as Word Processing with most programs?

The following did not appear to work when tried:
One work around is to use two dashes, type the next word with no
space, then go back to the end of the dashes and hit "enter." That may
turn it into an em dash. Then you just delete to remove the extra
spaces between the em dash and the word. You can also use Alt 0151.
And yes, it does matter and there is a difference so fix it if you
can. Your editor will thank you.

           I have tried to explain to my students that when any key is pressed, the first thing that gets a chance to "have at it" is the operating system.  If the operating system doesn't do anything with it then it gets passed to the next layer, and when a screen reader or other assistive technology is in the mix it gets it next.   If anything in that layer can process that key press, that's where it will stop being passed along, and that's even if that key press will do nothing in context when it happens to be pressed.  Once something intercepts it, and processes it, the key press does not continue through the hierarchy of processing any further.

            The more "stuff" you have running, and particularly a screen reader and a bunch of add-ons, the more likely it is that one of them is going to snag a key press that you "never use" when doing your day-to-day activity, so you have no idea that it's being snagged at that layer, until something at the application layer uses that key press, too, and you expect it to see it and act, and it can't, because the key press has already been snagged and processed before it ever sees it.

             I'd say this is probably the most common reason a screen reader user finds that certain application key sequences don't work, and it's not because of an application bug, nor even a bug in the screen reader or add-ons, but because things are actually working as designed with their defaults, which sometimes have to be changed.
