Re: nvda and ham calls

Iv'e already given that url 3 times. It is a clickable link that should click in almost any email client. It really is a wonderful piece of software, Oh, and it's free. I need to talk to the developer though about some accessibility issues, such as double clicking a row does not allow me to edit it, but over all it is 99 percent accessible.

If you have any questions about netlogger please email me off list.

How does netlogger relate to notepad?  When I had a working braille display, I used excel.  Now that I don't, I use the good old perkins
Brailler.

Sure wish I could use my Alva 380 with NVDA

Many of us are not having the problems you describe with Netlogger. and using Notepad is about as simple as it gets.

If the computer is problematic, are you a competant Braille reader and writer?

Like I said, this program does not have edit fields per-say. Even in notepad I can't read the calls correctly, and remember I'm using 1 hand. I even tried all caps and that idea failed last Tuesday when I was logging for someone. Again, if you want more info go to their website. http://netlogger.org

I can try this Saturday when I practice logging for the Saturday morning digital net, that is, if I'm alert enough to practice. By the way you do have to be a ham to dl the software, so can the hams please help? I really don't want to find another piece of software as let's say my computer reboots, I can have someone take over while I get up and running, so long as they have the pw to log.

Blessings all, I'm off to bed. I have a 3 hour training to do tomorrow.

    Hi Sara,

    Try one more thing and if it doesn't work, then find another
    program. Once in a while, when all else fails, highlight the
    whole edit field and then (laptop equivalent) press the read line
    keystroke twice quickly. With desktop, that is insert + up arrow.

    It does not. You type in the sign and hit enter. If I need to
    edit a call, good luck, as that part is hard to do so I'd better
    get it right.

    To read the calls, I up and down arrow but I cannot move left
    and right to read the characters and hitting nvda left and right
    yields blank blank blank. In fact object mode yields nothing at
    least in the net logger window.

        Hi Sara,

        Does this net logger have an edit field for each item?  If
        so, then either try using screen review or object
        navigation. I used to use an old ham database program years
        ago and using NVDA, if you moved to the edit field and then
        switched to object navigation, highlighted the callsign and
        then used the 5 key you could usually get it to work. If not
        try using screen review--a bit clumsy, but it may also work.

        I can't do that. I use an app called "netlogger." and using
        what ever that would be in laptop keys yields "blank blank
        blank" even though I typed in the stuff. So that won't
        work. You can find out more about netlogger here.

            Hi Sara,

            Using JAWS, there was a setting to 'spell alpha numeric
            expressions.'  NVDA does not have this option. What I
            do when running nets is to highlight the callsign and
            then use the keypad 5 key to read the callsign and if I
            can't tell what the call is initially, I double punch
            the 5 key to have the expression spelled alpha
            numerically as in alpha alpha 2 victor Mike.

            Hello to all. For those that don't know, I'm an
            amateur radio operator, and in a week I'm due to run a
            net. Fine, except I struggle with reading ham calls. I
            know on the BNS there was a ham calls option where it
            would read those such as ke7zum. Is there such a thing
            for nvda? Or can an option be thought of, an add on
            that could be turned on and off at will to allow for
            such? I know this won't happen by the 27th when I'm
            due to control, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who
            would like this.

            I'm using the ibm tts voices but espeak and david does
            this as well. I can't code or I would find a way to do
            this myself.

            The thing that makes this harder is not all call signs
            are 2 by 3 like mine. Some are a 1 by 1, or a 1 by 2.
            I've even seen some 2 by 2 calls.

            Thanks all.
