Office 365 with NVDA


Dennis L <dennisl1982@...>
 

What are the advantages and disadvantages  of Office 365 with NVDA?  Will it find my account in office 2016?


Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Dennis,

I wrote a piece about this for our In-process blog back in 2019.  The issues and considerations are basically still the same now: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/in-process-11th-september-2018/

Dear Denis

 

The main advantage of Microsoft 365 is that Office stays up-to-date at no extra cost.

 

Kind regards

Hello Denis,

 

Just for interest:  Office 365’s name has changed at the beginning of May to Microsoft 365.  I can really recommend it because you are always up to date with the newest features and updates.

 

I don’t know where you live, but in South Africa, a Microsoft package can be very expensive.  For me to pay a small amount per month for 365 is more cost effective.  So another advantage is that it will not hurt your wallet.

 

Take care

 

Morné

Yes, you wont get 2019 or 365 automatically, you will stay with 2016. With a 365 subscription you always get the newest release of Office.

 

Cheers,

I know I won’t  move from 2016 to 2019 or 365,  but I will continue to get updates to 2016.

2016 is not dead,  it is still alive in the software world.

I would think that, considering the legitimagte places to get Office cheaply, that subscribing for a monthly fee may be considerably more costly over time.  Unless you need the most current version for some reason, the subscription model seems like a bad deal to me.

I found my copy of m s office on amazon for about 20 bucks.

Totally legal;  I got the m s help deskt to assist me with download and installation.

Yes, I know people who have purchased  office 2019  for  similar price.

But,  I don’t think that includes a TB of free cloud storage.

You are correct but what you won't receive are new features, which are not usually added to perpetual licenses of Office such as Office 2016.

Bob Jutzi
 

Just curious as to what advantages Office has beyond the 2016 release for those of us using NVDA and who mainly use Word, Outlook, and occasionally Excel.  I realize 365 includes 1tb Onedrive space, which I didn't use when I subscribed to 365.

You are correct but what you won't receive are new features, which are not usually added to perpetual licenses of Office such as Office 2016.

Yes, you wont get 2019 or 365 automatically, you will stay with 2016. With a 365 subscription you always get the newest release of Office.

Hi,

 

I have Office 2016,  it gets updates at no extra cost.

Am I missing something?

Thanks,

What are the advantages and disadvantages  of Office 365 with NVDA?  Will it find my account in office 2016?

For me, the additional Onedrive space is very attractive as my wife and I use it to access files on our respective devices.

I may be wrong about this but you may not always receive accessibility fixes with the 2016 release. As an example, in Outlook are you able to edit an existing email signature using a screen reader?

Just curious as to what advantages Office has beyond the 2016 release for those of us using NVDA and who mainly use Word, Outlook, and occasionally Excel.  I realize 365 includes 1tb Onedrive space, which I didn't use when I subscribed to 365.

If some new features come along that I feel I must have, I’ll upgrade.

Another advantage is one terabyte of storage space on OneDrive.

Well it depends what you want.

Dropbox has it at 9 bucks a month.

Google has it at 10 bucks a month for the entire suite aparently maybe that has changed now as that was a couple years old.

You can get 50gb on onedrive for 2 dollars 50.

You can get 50gb on mega for free but I have lost my password info.

You can get 250gb on keybase but the client is not really that usable as such though it sounds if you want just data with public access similar to an ftp free with private storage to then all you need would be a free wordpress or wordpress site waith say 500mb to 2 gb for plugins or a free one and link directly to keybase itself.

Icloud has prices from 2 dollars for 50gb to something like 20 dollars for 1tb.

the icloud client for windows aint what you could call a complete accessibility success.

It works enough but enough aint really good enough to be honest.

Actually the most accessible would be if you either had or brought ftp access on something like public ftp, used something like flashfxp to upload and link directly either with ftp, http or https on your own domain but there are costs associated with a lot of that.

Further replying to my post, office 365 could be thought more like a mobile phone plan than a storage plan.

Storage and office are a part of it but depending on the addition all home additions have 100 minutes of calls a month and professional and business packages have 200 minutes a month.

To be honest though if you live in a family or flatting situation I'd buy the family pack and share the cost with your users.
