blank lines in outlook 2016


Sam Bushman
 

Hi All,

 

I have two main problems with outlook 2016 – the 32bit version that you can download and install from office 365.

 

  1. I get blank line over and over when arrowing through messages. Is there a way to ignore / compress more than one blank line in a row?
  2. Often the outlook crashes and restarts. This only happens with NVDA. I have briefed several on this list before and have sent in logs etc. Does this crashing on certain messages happen to anyone else? If I view the message by either looking at it from a forward or a reply it doesn’t crash.

Thanks so much for any input.

Sam

Why are you down arrowing through the message?  Do you have to do so for some reason?  If you use read to end, no blank lines will be spoken.

When you use read to end – then want to get a link to click on – how do you find the link – highlight it and then click on it.

You press esc or another key to stop the read to end – then you need to arrow around to find the link to click on. I just get blank over and over. Any other suggestions?

I got this crashes as well on some messages, most of them contain the official twitter icon in a signature. I tested it with the sender, without this twitter icon in their signature Outlook doesn’t crash.

First, it is important to use correct commands to do tasks.  Other commands may work at times but they may lead to unwanted behaviors.  One example is escape.  It is not a documented stop speech or stop read to end command.  If you use it in those ways, you may have behaviors you don't want.  You may close a dialog or something else.  If I have an opened e-mail message and I use it, the message closes.  The result is that I have to reopen the message again and I have completely lost my place.  Control is the stop speech command.  While any key will stop speech, the key will take whatever action it normally takes as well.  Stopping speech when any key is pressed is done so that old speech won't continue when you take a new action.  Control is the documented stop speech command in all screen-readers I am familiar with because control, when pressed by itself, takes no actions other than to stop speech.  it stops speech just as pressing any key does so it isn't taking that action as a control key function.  NVDA is stopping speech because a key is pressed. 
 
It is very easy to find a link if you stop speech near it.  Use the command k to move you to the next link or shift k to move you to the previous link.  If you have read the link and are passed it, shift k will take you back to it with one issuance of the command because it is the previous link. 
 
I am assuming you are reading mail as html.  If you aren't, that command won't work. 
 
You can also tab or shift tab to move to the next and previous link respectively.  However, in my e-mail program, that often takes you to a link far away from the one you want because of an alignment problem in browse mode when using the e-mail program I use.  K and shift k doesn't have that problewm.  You can experiment and see what happens in your e-mail program if you wish.

Yes you can, however, when you press k to go from link to link it just gets
stuck on graphic and can't find the link you want - you need to press k then
down arrow then k and down arrow and - ... etc. If you try to press read all
then stop it to find a link then you just get blank line after blank line.

Perhaps it should be suggested that a setting be adopted that would skip blank lines.

K should never stop on a graphic and repeating k should move you from link to link.  are these graphics or links that say graphic?  At this point, I can't tell if the problem is how NVDA works in a certain e-mail program or something about the messages?

I should add that based on your description, it sounds like some incompatibility between NVDA and the e-mail program but the subject needs more discussion to do more than just say it sounds like that.  I'm not sure what questions to ask.  others may have more.

That is a great point. I will try to use only control to stop speech.

I have been using up arrow. Thinking if speech stops and I go up on line from where it stopped I should be in good shape.

Hi All,

 

I have two main problems with outlook 2016 – the 32bit version that you can download and install from office 365.

 

  1. I get blank line over and over when arrowing through messages. Is there a way to ignore / compress more than one blank line in a row?
  2. Often the outlook crashes and restarts. This only happens with NVDA. I have briefed several on this list before and have sent in logs etc. Does this crashing on certain messages happen to anyone else? If I view the message by either looking at it from a forward or a reply it doesn’t crash.

Thanks so much for any input.

Hi


usually when you read a email it is in browse mode.

To stop nvda from talking use the CTRL key. Then if you think you just missed it use the shift key + K to jump you back up to that link if that is the one you want. You can keep on repeating it until you get to it.


If in a email you can also use the letter K to jump down by links only in browse mode not in focus mode where you type.



You can use thenvda quick navigation keys that are supported in browse mode if available


Most are like K for links there may be some headings so the letter H can be used etc..

When you use read to end – then want to get a link to click on – how do you find the link – highlight it and then click on it.

You press esc or another key to stop the read to end – then you need to arrow around to find the link to click on. I just get blank over and over. Any other suggestions?

Why are you down arrowing through the message?  Do you have to do so for some reason?  If you use read to end, no blank lines will be spoken.

Perhaps it should be suggested that a setting be adopted that would skip blank lines.

If you want to locate bits to cut and paste as I do all the time for scripts
for readers the blank line can become just a little annoying!

I'm not sure what that is, but there are several ways to send rich text emails. You can encode them in base 64 so high bits are sent and displayed against 7 bit for normal plain text or you can send them html coded and this also has mark up and of course often the graphics are in fact sent as kind of invisible attaches and the little graphics displayed in the right places by the mark up.


It might be an idea to turn off automatically download graphics and see if that works. Some emails even have the audacity to go to web servers to get the graphics which in my view poses a security risk. I have them turned off. I'm assuming the newer versions of Outlook still have this ability. You still get the alt tags, and the page is much faster to download and display as well.

I got this crashes as well on some messages, most of them contain the official twitter icon in a signature. I tested it
with the sender, without this twitter icon in their signature Outlook doesn't crash.



Cheers,

Em 01/05/2019 12:53, Gene disse:
control, when pressed by itself, takes no actions other than to stop speech.
Actually it does. This is the key configured by default used on TeamTalk when you are on PTT mode.
However it can be easily changed, but I just thought I'd point it out.

I don't see the point.  What is wanted is something that skips blank lines when you down arrow and moves directly to the next line with text.  If there are three blank lines between the line of text you are on and the next line, down arrowing would skip those three blank lines and read the next line with text.

It’s kind of like how a screen reader will say 52 dashes instead of dash,dash,dash over and over.

Might say five blank lines and then move you past them in one down arrow – could be turned on or off?
