Entering Header and Footer in Microsoft Word

 

Hello,
I need to manually enter page numbers for each page in my front-matter section of my document and I am wondering how to do this using NVDA on the latest version of Microsoft Word on Windows 10?

I need to have lowercase roman numerals with the title page not having any numerals, and the second page starting with "ii".
Thanks,

NVDACon 2019 - community survey

Adriani Botez
 

Dear all,

 

as we are preparing this year’s NVDACon, our goal this year is to engage the community in the preparation process more than before. For this purpose we have created a small survey which should reveal an optimal date for the conference, convenient for most of us.

 

In case you intend to participate at the conference, please complete this survey by chosing the weekend or weekends in august which are most convenient for you. You can choose more than one option. The conference will take place during the weekend which has been chosen by most people.

 

Please take two minutes and access the survey at

https://doodle.com/poll/sd5ubgyrbhibm5bw

 

To complete the survey, please don’t use firefox because the survey is not completely accessible in that browser.

 

Feel free to distribute this survey throughout your networks, so we reach as many people as possible.

 

We are lloking forward to having you on this year’s NVDACon!

 

 

Best regards

 

 

Adriani Botez

I did not even know there was a web version. Have you tried several browsers in case its browser sensitive?
As for saving it, I doubt if its possible if its a free product, they probably want you to buy it!

I'm not sure what Microsoft offer where you are you could try their accessibility help desk I suppose or even, shock horror using Narrator on the troublesome field.

Subject: [nvda] Office 365 on the web


Hi all,

I need to do a PowerPoint project and need office. I discovered office
Education today, allowing college students to get Office for free as
long as they have a valid email address.

Unfortunately, and I'm not sure if this is universal or just with my
school, but I apparently "do not have a valid license for installing
office" and to contact my school etc.

The web version of PowerPoint doesn't seem all that bad. I saved a
default presentation as a test and all is well, but I wonder if
there's a way for me to download it? I can only share an online link
and I need to upload the file to Blackboard.

In any case, I try to add a slide title and I can press F2 to leave
the edit box, but browse mode or NVDA's equivilent to forms mode is
odd and I can't press enter and/or NVDA Space in this edit area to
edit the title.

I know installing the apps are the best option, but if I can't do
that, is there a screen reader guide to use the web version of these
apps?

Ah glad to see you have the incredible not arrived till later email syndrome I have too.
Actually as the rest of his thread has now turned up here, I would also add this, even Sapi 5 voices like Serena and Daniel have apparently different rules. one can say Brian the other says Breean and needs me to put bryan to make it work so its always going to be a bit hit and miss I think.

This is not really an NVDA question - it's more of a synthesiser question, so
please tell us which synth you use (and perhaps which other synths you feel
happy with) so people might be able to advise how to do what you want.

It might also be helpful to mention which non-English language/s you wish to
adjust the pronunciation of.

Re: Changing the way NVDA pronounces non-English words

 

Manoj,

            I would try "chota" as the voice replacement for "chhota" to see if that will get you what you want.  My guess is that you'll get a long O with "chota."  If you're shooting for a short O try "chotta."    Like I said, there's some "creative spelling" with regard to what you use as the replacement and you do whatever you have to do to get the synthesizer to say what you want it to say.

Hi Brian,
I don't have microsoft James but I use microsoft Sara. i would want
the word Chhota to be pronounced like church and not like cotton. Will
also try playing with the NVDA voice dictionary. Thanks much for your
inputs.

No matter what it is you're trying to achieve with a specific synth and
voice as far as tweaking how a given word is pronounced, you will use the
Voice Dictionary for that voice and then start playing with "made up
spellings" as the replacement for the real one that the synth pronounces
using that voice the way you wish it to be pronounced. It's trial and
error.

I am sorry I forgot to mention that I use windows 1 core voice as my synth. I am inserting Hindi language words, e.g. the word chhota, which NVDA pronounces like kh when I wish it pronounces like ch.

I am presuming you are talking about non-English words inserted into English language text.  That can be done, but is generally fiddly until you figure out how to come up with something that's a pronounceable substitute for the word that sounds right with the synthesizer you're using.  I am guessing we're talking about words from non-romance-languages.

A short list of examples, and knowing what synthesizer you're using, would be most helpful.
