NVDA and Outlook issue


Chris Tromborg
 
Edited

Hello, group:     

I am a long-time NVDA supporter and user.  For over a month, I have been participating in the NYPL classes featuring Chancy fleet that focus on introducing screen reader users to NVDA. 

Years ago, I used NVDA as a reliable portable speech program that could be loaded onto a thumb drive to be used when I was in the field and did not necessarily have access to a computer with speech already installed.  I thought so highly of NVDA that I became a monthly supporter, a commitment that I retain. 

I just joined this group and consequently noticed that there was a recent upgrade.  So, I installed the upgrade and now Outlook is angry with mefor being a way for so long. 

When I load Outlook, all seems normal.  However, whenever I attempt to reply, the program will not accept the characters: That key is not available or That function is not supported.  In any case, I cannot enter text into the Reply field.  Is there a setting that I am not aware of that must be invoked to correct this?  Any assistance will be appreciated.

Chris,

Whether or not you intend to try reporting an issue via GitHub, following The Most Basic Troubleshooting Steps for Suspected NVDA Issues
is a valuable thing to try just because it may allow you to isolate a possible cause.  I don't know what add-ons you may be using, but starting with add-ons disabled to see if one of them is playing up should be on your short list of diagnostic steps.

Someone else may have a very clear idea of what may be going on based on your description, but I don't.  But following those instructions allows you to get a much better handle on the situation and whether it's more likely to be NVDA-related or something else.

If Sarah’s suggestion doesn’t work I find the problem described occurs if I hit ctl + r from within the message I want to reply to. If I tab up to the tool bar and press enter on Reply or press ctl + r on the e-mail highlighted in the list of posts I can write normally within the message field. I have Outlook 2015 on Windows 10.

Try pressing the space bar when you are in the reply message area and see if that lets you type away.

Thanks for the ideas.  I restarted NVDA with the Add-Ons removed option and this fixed the problem.  After restarting the program cleanly the problem had completely disappeared.

Now it’s time to find out what add on broke your outlook. Try restarting with one add on at a time until you figure out what is the cause of the bug.
