Hello;

I am a new user and just subscribed to this list.  I wonder if one can obtain a daily digest of messages to this list?  Also I’m looking for a good comprehensive tutorisl.  I’ve seen lots of youtube posts that briefly cover one or two features of the program but nothing that I felt was very comprehensive.  I wonder if anyone has any suggestions?

Richard

 

Richard,

           What follows should answer your question regarding getting group messages in digest form, along with other information regarding e-mail control of the exact e-mail you get from the NVDA group:
---------------

Hello All,

 

What follows is an informational message about how to manage your subscription and, more importantly, e-mail options under Groups.io.  The general principle applies across groups, but you would have to use the appropriate Groups.io mailing address for the specific group you wish to change.  The examples are for the NVDA Group

 

         Just like you subscribed yourself, should you wish to unsubscribe you can, and should, unsubscribe yourself.  Sending an e-mail message to  nvda+unsubscribe@nvda.groups.io will unsubscribe you.  You will also receive one final message that you have been unsubscribed.  If you do not receive your unsubscribe confirmation, then please send a message to the group owner address and we will research why it is failing.  It very seldom does.

 

          You also have the option of remaining subscribed, but putting yourself on "no mail" status.  Using this method has the added advantage of retaining group membership and not putting your first message under moderation when you post again later.  Should you wish to do that instead, send a message to  nvda+nomail@nvda.groups.io.   You can pick up with mailing again at any time by sending a message to the one of the group email management addresses:

nvda+single@nvda.groups.io 

To receive individual messages instead of digests or a summary

nvda+fulldigest@nvda.groups.io 

To receive full featured digests instead of individual messages

nvda+summary@nvda.groups.io 

To receive a daily summary instead of individual messages

nvda+digest@nvda.groups.io 

To receive plain digests instead of individual messages

nvda+special@nvda.groups.io 

To receive special notices only

 

​The email management addresses mentioned previously can also be used at any time to switch the way group information is delivered to you.

Richard,

            I'll leave it to others as far as suggesting tutorials.  You can find a lot of answers to a lot of questions already asked by using these instructions:

Searching the NVDA Group Archive

Here is also another document that covers additional ways you can control the e-mail you receive from Groups.io, often with more precision than even a daily digest.

Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (docx)

Hi Richard


If you want both written and audio tutorials for the nvda screen reader you can check out my website at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net

the link is to the main page you see. It covers blindness related material along with nvda tutorials.


If you pick one off the main page for nvda it will link to the internal website where the nvda tutorials are all in one table if you get what I mean.


it will also point you in the right directions for a lot of stuff plus you can also buy training material from nvaccess shop for outlook, word, exce, nvda and a power point one is coming.


Hope it helps.


By the way the nvda tutorials covers a few of the features from before to now of the latest release.


hope it helps.

Depending on how much you know about working with Windows and Windows programs and browsing, you may only need specific information such as how to use object navigation, and screen review.  The quick navigation keys for browsing will be very similar between JAWS and NVDA and my impression is that Window-eyes used roughly the same commands toward the end of its versions.
 
I can't suggest specific tutorials but that may help you know what to look for. 
 
 
If you need more instruction, others can suggest a lot of material.

Hi Richard,

As well as all the information previously mentioned, we have some official training material for NVDA you might be interested in.  The main one to start with is the Basic Training for NVDA.  Despite the name, it covers everything from starting NVDA through to advanced concepts like Object Navigation, the Review Cursor and Configuration Profiles.  It is available in a range of formats, starting at just $30 Australian (not much over $20 USD depending on the exchange rate of the day): https://www.nvaccess.org/shop

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi;

I took a look at the training material on the nvda site and had a question or two.  The basic training version is initially shown as an e-book.  Will this be something that can be read with word or will need some additional software.

Secondly there is a more expensive version which appears to be mp3.  Does anyone know how current the mp3 version is?  I think I saw a notice that it was done with a windows 7 pc so I wonder if there using the latest greatest version of nvda?

Any information appreciated.

Richard

According to the site the material is quote

“Included in this package: ePub, HTML, Word Docx and kfx (Kindle).”

So yes it appears that you can use Word, or your web browser or eBook reading programs if you would prefer that.

 

I don’t know what the status of the mp3   material is.

Hi Richard,

Good questions!  As David noted, the electronic text version comes as a zip file which includes the book as a web page (html), Word (docx), electronic book (ePub) and Kindle (kfx) formats - they are all identical, it's just up to personal preference which format you prefer to read.

The audio and Braille versions were updated last year, just after we updated the electronic text version.  We tried to keep them accurate for users with Windows 7 through to Windows 10 and the current (at the time) NVDA.  So, it should give you enough information to be able to get to a program using the Start menu for instance, although it doesn't necessarily cover every new aspect of the latest incarnation of the Windows 10 start menu.

Kind regards

Quentin.
