Re: questions for Newest nvda update.

Christo Vorster <christo.vorster.klavierstem@...>



At the time I posted my question regarding the ASCII-code, I used the one core voices. I tried it with SAPPI5 as well, and they also don’t sy anything else but, eg, e.


I accept that ESpeak NG might say the correct letter, but, call me full of nonsense, I haven’t found one of the ESpek NG voices that satisfy me.


I used to use Eloquence.


I suppose, if I don’t want to use the ESpeak voices, I just have to bare with what I have.


It would be nice if the NVDA developers could try to solve this problem in a next upgrade.


Regarding “copy and paste:, wouldn’t it be possible to make that add-on a built-in feature of NVDA?

Also, make sure you have restarted the computer after updating.  Sometimes random things misbehave in that interim time.


With Clipspeak, it has been updated, you can download the new version from:


Kind regards

Christo, am going to ask a silly question here, since just tested out exactly that, and, it worked fine.


What voice engine are you using?  Ask that, since, the MS one core voices will just read out, for example, the letter E with an accent on it as E, but, using eSpeak-NG, it tells me the difference between e and é (that second one is e-acute, typed right now using alt + numpad-130).


Stay well

Hi List


I have another problem since I upgraded to NVDA 2019.3.


In Afrikaans we regularly make use of the ASCII codes for ‘accents’, ‘pounds’, ‘euros’ and much more.


To access the ASCII codes, we use the ALT-key plus the numeric keypad. I did everything, as I usually did, turned on the numeric-keypad, held down ALT and typed the number sequence.


Nothing happened. I tried it several times, with no success. Previously NVDA read the coded letter.


I also, previously wrote regarding the addon announcing copy and paste. I tried to update the addon, with no success. Can someone please hel?

And, with regard to NVDA Remote and NVDA 2019.3.X, quoting Rui Fontes from earlier today:

Almost all add-ons are already compatible with NVDA 2019.3...

You can get a beta version of remote add-on at:
