NVDA and outlook questions


Dennis L <dennisl1982@...>
 

Hi, I was wondering is there a way to get NVDA to automatically read the suggestions that come up when you are typing the address or persons name who the message is to?


Gene
 

Does a suggestion appear on the line where you are typing? In Thunderbird, no suggestion is on that line. If you type something, then down arrow, you will move through a list of suggestions. You wouldn't want suggestions to be automatically read if you have to down arrow through them and they aren't on the line where you are typing.

This is slightly odd as this is precisely hwat NVDA does for me in Outlook. I have just tried it and if I press K the most recent email I have typed

whose name begins with K. Pressing the down arrow reveals other addresses beginning with K.

I wonder if there is a setting in Outlook about keeping recent addresses you need to turn on?
Having said that it is also true that this feature does not, for me at least,  any longer, reveal results from all your contacts. I often have to go into the to button and search in there to reveal all my addresses in contacts.

I have the setting

Automatic say on page load unchecked.  I was able to get it to read the first suggestion but not more suggestions.  Example if I type j and joe smith is first it will read that if I continue typing and type john it won’t read John smith can this be changed that it will continuously read the suggestions?

I know of no such setting. This is very likely another instance where you have to help the screen-reader in some way by using read current line as you type. I don't know why Outlook is different, in the address bar in the browsers I use, autocomplete will read as what I type changes.

You need to go to, in Outlook to File then Options and then under Mail find the setting which says Automatic Name checking and make sure that that is checked.

I have Outlook from Office 365 and if I recall this thread was about the To field and reading the type-ahead suggestion reading? When I was using Outlook 2016, I had this problem of it not reading but I did a bit of testing again on this version. It seems to be working fine with the type ahead for reading the first suggestion and changing as I progress on typing. Also, a simple down arrow will read the remaining suggestions. I don't recall which version you have but I am wondering if that is a factor here.

If my guess is correct, you can read current line as you type and see the address change as you provide more information. Why this isn't read, I don't know, nor do I know if it is a problem on your machine or a general problem. I don't use the program. But at times,, making a minor adjustment to get a screen-reader to do what you want is the best solution. If the problem is general, than you can try to interest developers to try to solve it, if it is important enough for those working on NVDA to do so. But screen-readers working in the complex environments they do, you will always have the possibility of having to cause it to do something.

Typing a little, then reading the current line, then typing some more is a good work around if that is necessary in this case. Or perhaps down arrowing once, then uparrowing to the line you want read might be better. It would allow you to keep one hand on the keyboared and resuming typing might be easier and faster. Or reading the current object, numpad 8, might be what you might find most convenient. Using the desktop layout, you would only take one hand off the keyboard. I don't know the laptop layout.

A certain amount of imperfection may be inevitable and should be expected.

I just tested this on my copy of Outlook 2016, and yes, it behaves
differently than I am used to with System Access, but not so
differently that I would write to the list on my own about it. With
System Access, it does read as I believe the original poster wants,
which is that as soon as you start typing, the screen reader started
reading the first name that appeared. In NVDA, you have to press down
arrow in order to get it to read the suggestions, but it reads all the
suggestions as expected.

Well, if it is a 2016 based version then you likely will have the problem of it not reading suggestions easily. I always had to fiddle around with it to get anything. I vaguely remember using object navigation to dive into the enclosing frame It I was truly needing to use that feature, I would just switch to JAWS 18 and it would read in a more natural way. I would give recent Narrator a try and see how it fairs with that dropdown.

Well, if it is a 2016 based version then you likely will have the problem of it not reading suggestions easily. I always had to fiddle around with it to get anything. I vaguely remember using object navigation to dive into the enclosing frame It I was truly needing to use that feature, I would just switch to JAWS 18 and it would read in a more natural way. I would give recent Narrator a try and see how it fairs with that dropdown.

I have Outlook from Office 365 and if I recall this thread was about the To field and reading the type-ahead suggestion reading? When I was using Outlook 2016, I had this problem of it not reading but I did a bit of testing again on this version. It seems to be working fine with the type ahead for reading the first suggestion and changing as I progress on typing. Also, a simple down arrow will read the remaining suggestions. I don't recall which version you have but I am wondering if that is a factor here.

You need to go to, in Outlook to File then Options and then under Mail find the setting which says Automatic Name checking and make sure that that is checked.
I have this checked and if Dennis does not then this may explain the different behaviour.

This is slightly odd as this is precisely hwat NVDA does for me in Outlook.
I have just tried it and if I press K the most recent email I have typed



whose name begins with K. Pressing the down arrow reveals other addresses beginning with K.







I wonder if there is a setting in Outlook about keeping recent addresses you need to turn on?



Having said that it is also true that this feature does not, for me at least, any longer, reveal results from all your contacts. I often have to go into the to button and search in there to reveal all my addresses in contacts.

Your version number suggests you have some kind of subscription and Office 365 is the only recent offerings I know of. So, if that is the case you probably just need to login to your Microsoft account (via the File menu using that account management option) and update. I did just that about 2 weeks ago.

If you are shopping for a new version, check out amazon,  I go a legal version of 2016 office pro there for about 30 bucks.  They send you the key code, and you download the appropriate version from the m s store.In my experience, it is not an upgrade from 2010 to 2016   or any other version,  it is a new install  full prices apply,  others may  have a different  story.

Your version number suggests you have some kind of subscription and Office 365 is the only recent offerings I know of.  So, if that is the case you probably just need to login to your Microsoft account (via the File menu using that account management option) and update.  I did just that about 2 weeks ago.

 

Compared to 2016, the latest Office has been working better in my experiences.  Even the calendar is becoming more and more useable.

I did see that you can use your Microsoft outlook 2010 key. Then I can upgrade to the latest version. I know you can That’s why I was asking if you have to pay.
