Re: configuration saved

Control NVD r says configuration applied.  It means that if you changed something and didn't permanently save the changes, that your configuration will go back to the saved configuration.  If you are using NVDA with the default setting regarding this, every time you close NVDA, whatever settings are being used will be saved.
 
Let's say that you want to temporarily use a slower speech rate or a different voice.  You can change these settings, for example, and then use NVDA key control r to revert instantly to all the settings you were using before. 
 
The command to manually save the current configuration is NVDA key control c.  If you used that command, you would have heard configuration saved.  If you heard that, that is the command you used.  It saved the current settings being used.  if you hadn't changed any of them, nothing was changed, though you did save again what already was saved.

It works well for some people and not for others.  It hasn't been supported for a long time. Also,  every six months, when there is a major update to Windows 10, it is removed.  I don't think it is a good choice for simplicity and long-term leave it alone reliability.  I believe the emphasis of the discussion should be to find out, as well as we can, what you, Fred want to do and we can  then discuss the best way to proceed.
 
the mail app may be fine if all that is wanted to do is to send and receive mail and use an address book.  If the person doesn't want to create message rules and I'm not sure what the app can't do, but it may be fine for basic e-mail use.  I don't have Windows 10 but it isn't a question of generalities and what a lot of people want.  It’s a question of this specific person
 
  What synthesizer is being used?  You said you have problems with understanding the letter e.  So I'm asking the list if there are synthesizers that might be better for people with hearing impairments.
 
I saw in a preceeding message that you, Fred, don't know how to use the Internet well.  Your sighted son isn't a good way to learn it.  The training material available from the NVDA developers and creators of instructional material may be good in teaching how to use the (Internet as a blind person.  I haven't used that tutorial and I don't know how much and how it teaches concerning that topic.  but I hope those who have will describe it.  Does that tutorial teach Windows along with NVDA and browsing?  Should some other material be used along with the NVDA tutorial?  Would perhaps a few hours of individual instruction be a good idea?  It is available, though you may have to pay for it. 
 
My concern is to make learning as easy as possible and to find out what you want to do so that things aren't made more complicated than necessary.  There is nothing wrong with Outlook but if it isn't necessary to meet your needs, something simple like the app may be a better choice.  I haven't used the app so I can't compare the two.  I'm saying that I think people should first find out as well as possible what you, want to do and match recommendations to that.

Hi Chris,

 

Thanks for your information.

I don’t know what my options are.

I think Outlook is similar with the old program I used Outlook express.

If that is correct I would like that.

Hi

I don’t understand why you would concentrate on gmail.  You are using the Windows 10 Mail app linked to a gmail account, so you do not mecessarily need to learn gmail commands, as you can already send and receive email.  If you are new to NVDA  and Windows 10, I would concentrate on learning my way around the Windows environment and understanding how NVDA works before looking at the totally different browser based interface for Gmail

It may be that the person doesn't understand which he wants to use.  I hope he clarifies this. 

 

At this point, it would be good to find out what you want to learn in general, not just now, but over time.  You would likely benefit from systematic learning and if we know what you want to learn, we can better direct you to resources. 

I’m not sure if I am ding this right.

I am not interested in web browsing or recording music

Also I am not intereste in cd’s.

I hope this helps.

Part of the problem is I am not good with computers.

 

 

For example, you are interested in e-mail.  Are you interested in web browsing?  Are you interested in recording audio for later listening or review?  Do you want to use your computer to play CDS? 

 

These are examples of things you may want to do.

locked The movie maker tool in windows 10 brief overview.

 

I've been playing around with the new, windows 10, movie editing tool this morning and it is surprisingly extremely accessible, but the tool itself is extremely basic. You can add titles, add audio at certain points of the video file, and even add clipped backround music for the video. Even though the tool is very, very, very. basic. You can surely edit small video files. If you want to do more complex stuff, this is not the tool for you. All the sliders and buttons are labeled, which is really nice. I'll use this when I want to muck about with some quick editing. To find it, download the Microsoft Photos app, or just look for an app called, photos, in windows 10. Looks like you can only import video files at this stage, but still, I'm just amazed that Microsoft continues to think about accessibility, even if they miss a button here and there. I looked online for an official list of keyboard commands, but could not find any by Microsoft. I'm not sure if Microsoft is gonna make this tool an app soon, or what, but the tool does have keyboard commands. I can sometimes hear them when I am tabbing through the menus and buttons.

I am almost at wits end with the seeming resistance to do web searches to get the answers to commonly answered questions.  This should be done FIRST.

A web search, https://duckduckgo.com/?q=keyboard+shortcuts+gmail,
on [keyboard shortcuts gmail] returns, as its first item:  Keyboard shortcuts for Gmail - Computer - Gmail Help


A web search, https://duckduckgo.com/?q=accessibility+gmail, on [accessibility gmail], returns as its second item:  Use accessibility features with Gmail - Computer - Gmail Help


Questions about navigating the Gmail website with NVDA (or any website with NVDA) are perfectly appropriate.   It is, however, a very simple matter to use web searches to find out virtually anything you need or want to know about Gmail's features, regardless of what particular feature it is you wish to know about.  Those aren't NVDA-related, either.

Choose a handful of Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts to learn. Spend a week incorporating the keyboard shortcut

into your regular typing and work flow. After you’ve mastered that group of 10 or 15 shortcuts, come back and find some more to learn. Within a few weeks

you’ll learn the most used shortcuts and master all of them over a couple of months.

 

Assuming you’re using a notebook computer, “Windows” below refers to the Windows logo key, usually somewhere left of the space key like the Lenovo keyboard

above. On some touch screen computers or tablets there’s a button near the display with a Windows logo on it, as is the case with the Surface Pro 3. It’s

just right of the display. This button does not work like the WINDOWS key on the keyboard.

 

windows 10 onscreen keyboard

 

Bring up the onscreen keyboard on touch screen tablets or laptops by clicking or tapping on the keyboard icon in the lower right corner near the time/date.

The onscreen keyboard includes a few keyboard layouts. One looks like a full keyboard on some devices. Get to it using the keyboard button on the onscreen

keyboard (see above) in the lower right. Tap on it to show the keyboard/input selector.

Often Used Windows 10 Keyboard Shortcuts

 

Below you’ll find the Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts that you’ll probably use the most. Most of these will seem familiar to many experienced Windows users.

 

Use copy, cut and paste to move or work with things like text or pictures. Copy leaves it there and copies it. Cut grabs it removing it from the spot it

used to sit. Paste takes cut or copied text or content and puts it in a new place. Start by selecting text or a photo/object. Then use the following:

 

list of 5 items

? Ctrl+C (or Ctrl+Insert):  Copy a selected item

? Ctrl+X:  Cut a selected item to paste it elsewhere

? Ctrl+V (or Shift+Insert):  Paste a copied or cut item

? Ctrl+A:  Select all items in an open document or in the current window

? Ctrl+D (or Delete):  delete a selected item

list end

 

Here’s a list of other often used shortcuts.

 

Ctrl+Z:  Undo the previous action.

 

Ctrl+R (or F5):  Refresh the active window.

 

Ctrl+Y:  Redo an action.

 

Alt+Tab:  Switch between open apps. Windows 10 will bring up a screen showing the open windows and cycle through them each time we use Alt+Tab.

 

Alt+Esc:  Cycle through items in the order in which the user opened them. It works like the previous shortcut, but doesn’t show the windows. It just switches.

 

function key on windows pc

 

Alt+F4:  Close the active item, or exit the active app. Be careful since many PC laptop keyboard put shortcuts on the function keys at the top row of the

keyboard. There’s usually a function key with Fn on it. If that’s true on your laptop, you’ll need to use the Fn+Alt+F4. The same is true of all Function

keyboard shortcuts on these computers.

 

WINDOWS+L:  Brings up the lock screen on the PC requiring the user to enter their password or PIN.

 

WINDOWS+D:  Switch back and forth between the Windows desktop and the current open application.

 

Alt+underlined letter:  Perform the command for that letter in programs like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel or other Windows programs that make use

of the feature.

 

Alt+Enter:  Display properties for the selected item, like a file in File Explorer.

 

Alt+Spacebar:  Open the shortcut menu for the active window. In a lot of programs it will bring up the menu with commands like Maximize, Minimize, Close

or Task Manager to open the Task Manager of Windows 10 from any Window.

 

Alt+Left arrow:  Go back if the program has a screen history, like in browsers or File Explorer.

 

Alt+Right arrow:  Go forward.

 

Alt+Page Up:  Jump up one screen.

 

Alt+Page Down:  Jump down one screen.

This last shortcut isn’t really a shortcut key, but a time saver. On any screen in Settings with a search box, start typing on that page and the search will

automatically enter the text in the search box and list the settings with that text in the title of the setting. Above, I searched for “sync” and it listed

all settings with the word “sync” in them.

Hi Robert,

 

I am not a good windows user or nvda.

I am trying to learn gmail.  I got this computer from the local college.

All I know is that it is a desktop computer with Windows ten and now the screen reader.

I have been using Window Eyes and they now are gone.

My grandson downloaded nvda so I don’t know much about it either.

Choose a handful of Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts to learn. Spend a week incorporating the keyboard shortcut

into your regular typing and work flow. After you’ve mastered that group of 10 or 15 shortcuts, come back and find some more to learn. Within a few weeks

you’ll learn the most used shortcuts and master all of them over a couple of months.

 

Assuming you’re using a notebook computer, “Windows” below refers to the Windows logo key, usually somewhere left of the space key like the Lenovo keyboard

above. On some touch screen computers or tablets there’s a button near the display with a Windows logo on it, as is the case with the Surface Pro 3. It’s

just right of the display. This button does not work like the WINDOWS key on the keyboard.

 

windows 10 onscreen keyboard

 

Bring up the onscreen keyboard on touch screen tablets or laptops by clicking or tapping on the keyboard icon in the lower right corner near the time/date.

The onscreen keyboard includes a few keyboard layouts. One looks like a full keyboard on some devices. Get to it using the keyboard button on the onscreen

keyboard (see above) in the lower right. Tap on it to show the keyboard/input selector.

 

Finally, when you see a plus in the keyboard shortcuts below, don’t press the plus key on the keyboard. Instead WINDOWS+A means use the Windows key and

the A key only.

in File Explorer it chooses a file, then a folder along the left, and finally the address bar above the list of files/folders.

 

F10:  Activates the menu bar or turns on the letter shortcuts (see the File Explorer image below) so the user can select the items with the letter or number

Are you asking for shortcut keys for the GMail web site?  I almost never use the web site.  I want to use an e-mail program so I'll mainly let others discuss the web site.  I will point out, and this has nothing to do with shortcut keys provided by GMail, that if you open a mailbox, like the inbox, for example. if you start at the top of the page and type x, you will move to the first check box.  Each message has its own check box. 
 
X is the move to next check box command in NVDA's browse mode.  If you already know virtual PC Cursor quick navigation keys such as h for move by heading, n for skip block of links, etc. then you know just about all the browse mode NVDA commands.

Your subject line specifically mentions GMail.  Is that what you want help with or with Windows 10 and using NVDA with Windows 10 or all of those subjects.
