sequencing in a list


Jon W Parsons
 

eIs there a way to have sequencing iin lists using NVDA?
For example, in a long list of items in a folder or in a list of email messages in an email client, I would like to know where I am in the list:  e.g. 23 of 100.

Jon, from within a folder using Windows Explorer my instance of NVDA 2021.3 is identifying the numeric position you’re asking about, as in “1 of 12.” I am also able to have this information spoken in Outlook 365’s message lists.

Which email client are you using?

From within NVDA’s Object Presentation settings ensure that “report object position information” is checked. Also try checking the next check box in this dialog, which is announced as “guess object position when unavailable” which enables this feature to work from within Outlook.

Hi John,

 

Yes, it works for me.

in outlook 2016, nvda tells me I am on item 24 in a list of 89 for example, or nvda will say I am on file 24 in a list  fo 48   in

 

In a list of messages  my documents, etc.

I did not choose a particular setting or check box to make this happen.  Nvda has worked this way for me for many years.

Currently I am using nvda 2021.3  with windows 10 21h2.

 

Some one has your answer.

Does having the guess position checkbox checked cause any lag in performance?  If so, since one message indicates that in some versions of Outlook the guess check box isn't necessary to be checked, it would be better to just try having the report position checkbox checked and see if that works before checking the guess position check box.
