Re: nvda and ham calls

Just a shot in the dark here.
Try changing the screen resolution and see if more show.
It got the settings to show back in edge, so might work.

Right. I need that info looked up so (I can look up names hence why I'm using netlogger. Excel (I don't have office anyway) will not interface with qrz or eqsl.
So you did confirm nvda tab will not work like I did eh? Ok, though I was going crazy.
Take care

Hi Group,

I did download and install Net Logger. I can confirm the issues that Sara is having. Some people say they are not having the issues.  Is there any kind of set up that will make use with a screen reader work better?

I was able to enter data wit some clumsiness and safe it in stand alone mode.  The file is saved in log format and by default that format opens in Notepad Plus Plus on my system. Interestingly enough, when I viewed it in Notepad Plus Plus, everything showed up as it should -with delimiters using the vertical bar symbol. Using Net Logger itself, I could not get what I wrote to read in any other manner other than using tab and shift tab or after data had been enter I use left/right arrow keys to move from columns that already contained data and the information would read, but there was no way of reading the information--in particular--callsigns alpha-numerically.

Actually, if you use Microsoft Excel and set up a spreadsheet in data format, you get better results. NVDA reads all the columns if column header mode is turned on and you can edit and enter data easily. This takes some ability to design database/spreadsheets, but for a simple thing like a callsign entry system, where formulas are not required nor any fancy accounting knowledge, this isn't really that hard.

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.

    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.

            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.
