This has been observed and tested for quite long time. Everytime I
proof reading in the openoffice Writer file. Right after I selected
the appropriate word the nvda stops speaking. In order to get resume
its speaks I usually minimize the said application. Not sure if this
is the same as with the Microsoft Word or any third party text editor as well.
Kindly advise me directly if this is been experienced also by the
others user as well. Thanks!

Re: Mary TTS in other languages (was: SpeechHub matters - answers to recent questions)

Hi,

the Mary TTS in SpeechHub only offers english voices.
I know that there are a lot of other languages, i. e. German, for Mary TTS available, too.
Is it possible to get these languages in SpeechHub Mary TTS?
Is it difficult to add additional languages to Mary TTS or is it possible to do it myself? I have no knowledge in writing software.

Yours sincerely

Re: URGENT REQUEST FOR CHANGES/ADDITIONS

 

Hello,

Ah, Microsoft Office support: cut, copy and paste cannot be announced due to technical restrictions and because different languages use different commands for these.

For things specific to Excel: there are some things under active development as we speak (that’ll make it to 2016.2 later this year).

As for urgency of these requests: when do you need this by? Although we cannot guarantee that all features you’ve requested will be available, we’ll try our best to include highest priority ones as soon as possible.

I’ll forward your request to the developers in hopes that some would write to you directly.

Cheers,

Subject: [nvda] URGENT REQUEST FOR CHANGES/ADDITIONS

 

Dear Group

 

I am writing to you on behalf of the Department for Career Development in Worcester South Africa.  This department falls under the auspices of the Institute for the Blind (soon to be Kaleidoscope), which is also situated in Worcester. 

 

The Department for Career Development is a unique institution in South Africa in that it is the only college spicifically for blind people.  Note that other colleges and universities do allow the blind, but our college aims to rehabilitate those who become blind at a later stage and prepare blind school-leavers for their future career or university.

 

We teach some theoretical subjects, such as Communication and Marketing Management, but our main focus is on computer literacy and telephony.  We also provide a braille course for those who became blind later on or those who only used uncontracted braille in their school career.

 

Our computers used to run on JAWS, but due to the Windows upgrade and the major cost of JAWS, in "South Africa (due to the weekness of the Rand),  we decided to switch over to NVDA. 

 

We have found, besides the advantage of NVDA being free of charge, that it is a more user-friendly programme.  Other advantages include the optional spelling error indicator and the ability to read Afrikaans fluently.

 

As already mentioned, our department trains adult persons becoming blind later in life.  Many of them have had no prior computer training, due to their background.  Thus it is necessary for purposes of our training, specifically on computer, that the students need to hear NVDA say much more than required by a more advanced, or well adjusted blind person.  For this reason there are some changes/additions which are necessary for our line of work.  These include the following:

 

Speak the following by default:

 

Upon enter:  in MS Word, say "ENTER"

Upon enter: in MS Excel speak new cell address,

Upon pressing escape: say "escape"

Upon pressing Ctrl-c: say "Copy to clipboard"

Upon pressing Ctrl-x: say "Cut to clipboard"

Upon pressing Ctrl-v: say "Pasted from clipboard"

Line number by request (similar to insert+period in JAWS)

Cell address by request, both in MS Word tables and MS Excel (similar to insert+c in JAWS)

Upon pressing Ctrl-t: say "Hanging indent"

Upon pressing Ctrl-m: say "Indent" and the distance (alternatively, say only the distance)

Upon pressing Ctrl-s: say "Ctrl-S"

Upon pressing Ctrl-q: say "Ctrl-Q"

Upon pressing Shift-down arrow: say "selected"

Upon pressing ctrl-arrow (left or right),When the punctuation level is set to "none or some", read all the punctuation under the cursor

Upon pressing Shift-F3: speak capitalisation changes

Upon pressing Insert-F: add line spacing to what NVDA already says

Upon reading the status line: add line number to what NVDA already says

Upon pressing CTRL-G or F5 say go to

Upon pressing F8 say extended selection on

 

Please bare with us, we might request some more additions as time goes on.

 

Allow me to congratulate the developers of NVDA with a product that, genuinely, makes a difference to the lives of many blind people.

 

Warm regards

I recently downloaded the OCR add-on and tried to use it on a PDF

NVDA+F9 and it only copies one letter at a time. How does one select
the whole document when the OCR is complete?

Could you also, perhaps, send me a list of shortcuts for the OCR or a

Please note that I use the newest Adobe Reader.

Fine, but my observation applies just as much to a desktop mouse (maybe more so) than a laptop mouse pad.  You can either tape over the optical port on the bottom or remove the ball from a mechanically based mouse and have a left/right click for "in case of emergency" that won't involve accidental movement of the mouse pointer.  You will, though, have to use WinKey+B and left arrow to make sure that you have focus on the AVG system tray icon.

Where there's a will, there's a way.

SpeechHub matters - answers to recent questions

Isaac Porat
 

Hello

The following are answers to recent SpeechHub issues on this list.
Firstly, I am using it daily and not aware of any significant problems but there are some things to watch.

* Possible Java issues

SpeechHub uses Java, therefore like any other Java program, if Java is not installed correctly, it would not work resulting in a Java error message.

Firstly Java 7 is not supported any more by Oracle since May 2015. Check if you still have Java 7 installed (look in in add / remove programs or Program and features)
If you find Java 7 remove it, if nothing else it can be a security risk.

Then check that you have Java 8 and if not download and install it from its website - The Java 8 installer is available now by default.

Try to run a Java program and if it does not work read the following:

Assuming you have Java 8 installed, the following problem occurs only on some machines and when it does Java does not work with any program!
There is a Java 8 installation problem after installing java 8 on a system already running (or used to run) Java 7.
Without going into technicalities, the Java 8 installer leaves (it should not) three files which needs to be removed manually for Java to work these are:
java.exe, javaw.exe & javaws.exe in the Windows system folder.
So, the solution is to check if these files are present in your windows system folder and if so, simply to delete the 3 Java exes, as above.
If you are running 32-bit Java on a 64-bit Windows, the exes would be in Windows\SysWOW64, otherwise in Windows\System32.

SpeechHub is running as a local server. With some anti virus programs including Microsoft Defender, each time you install another version of Java, it asks you if you would allow it to communicate, say yes if you want to run SpeechHub; actually SpeechHub does not communicate outside your computer at all but still this permission is required even to communicate within your own computer for some reason.

If you suspect that Java communication is blocked, check and if necessary change the settings in your anti virus program.

* Sometimes after rebooting the computer, NVDA does not remember the last voice used by SpeechHub reverting to eSpeak

From version 2015.4 (I think), NVDA uses the 'Ease of access' feature in Windows, which means that NVDA starts together with other access technology programs before other programs.
SpeechHub does not use 'Ease of access' yet which means that NVDA might wait for SpeechHub to start and after a while gives up and revert to eSpeak.

I find that usually (always in my system, restarting NVDA [Ctrl + Alt + n], which takes a few seconds solves the problem.

* Audio ducking

SpeechHub uses it own audio system and audio ducking is not supported yet. I did try it with other synthesizer and it least for me I find it irritating and prefer not to use it. I shall look into SpeechHub support for audio ducking at some stage.

The above are all the issues I am aware of at present.

SpeechHub is here with plenty of information:

Isaac

Also, you say you're on a laptop. You have the very easy option of
turning the mousepad on and using the hard mouse buttons. I have a number
of clients who cover the actual pointer manipulation area of the mousepad

Re: [Nvda and custom lists in Excel

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Calling all you Excel experts!

 

I would like to insert a custom list into a range of cells in Excel 2010 running on windows 10 with NVDA 2016.1.

 

I can make a custom list and save it under the Advanced tab where I can see the new custom list fine. However, when I go to the spot where I want to insert the custom list, I first type the first element from the list in the starting cell and highlight the rest of the cells to be filled in. I then press alt>h>f>i>s and hit OK but nothing happens!  This key combination works fine if I am filling down a column of cells with numbers so that part fo the function is working. Can anyone advise me what to do? Is there some other way to copy in a custom list/ The manuals say to use the fill handle. Is the key combination that I describe here not the same as using the fill handle?

 

All ideas welcome, please.

 

 

All the best,

Thanks for testing.

I'm afraid these horrors appear once you're actually logged in. M yson saw them too, and blocked them for me.
Now I'm fine on this page, but I wonder whether it would be possible to do someghing about them more in general. Either through an add-on for NVDA, or by making it easier to adjust in Adblock Plus.
I must study this seriously...

This constant refresh of web pages is really annoying. I know I
mentioned this before, but I didn't know that the problem is caused
by Carousel...

If anyone has any suggestions, they'll be very welcome.
Thanks a lot.
Ciao,
Ollie
ps: Would this be material for a possible add-on?












Re: NVDA and Carousel

Ok, I'll try with Firefox, and see what happens.

I did some research on the web last night, and I found a lot of instructions for devs and webmasters for creating accessible carousels (or slideshows, as tehy called them in alternative).

Nothing specific to screen readers though.

However, from what I could see around the web, the problem exists, and it's well known and discussed.
Hope soemthing can be done.

Blicking or removing them in Firefox, via Adblock Plus, is indeed possible, but I'm afraid it isn't something a blind or visually impaired person can do very easily.

Ciao,
Ollie

I did not say I was on a laptop, I said I use the laptop keyboard and I do this for all computers regardless if it is a desktop or laptop.

Gene is correct that Shift+F10 generally brings up the context menu for the item with focus.

You may need to use WinKey+B and left arrow until you know that you're on the AVG system tray icon before hitting Shift+F10.

Also, you say you're on a laptop. You have the very easy option of turning the mousepad on and using the hard mouse buttons. I have a number of clients who cover the actual pointer manipulation area of the mousepad with a small square of cardboard of the thickness necessary to make it not recognize any touches on their laptop and who then use the native left and right click buttons.

Hi, tried the context key and nothing happens doubt shift f10 would be any different but thanks will give it a try this is a case for the system tray addon working over the normal way of accessing the tray in window's.

If you don't have a context menu key, try shift f10. That is a Windows command and most of the time right clicks the item you are on.

Hi, trying avg again, in the system tray I tried this keystroke and
I did get a context menu, but it was not for avg! it said programs
and features and I can't remember what else any other ideas? yes I can
use the system tray addon might have to as it actually does work but
thought there should be a right click for programs in the system tray.

Re: in search of a fast browser for windows 10

 

Sometimes emails may lock in thunderbird, pages may not fully load in firefox, and sometimes things just don't work,
Its a connection issue it happens from time to time on my wireless.

On 18/03/2016 12:20 p.m., Gene wrote:
Also, no one has brought up the possibility that there may be a connection problem and that pages are loading more slowly. You can try running a test of the cconnection speed but you can likely determine if there is a problem with the connection by starting a download from a site that is reliably fast and checking the download statistics during the download to see if they are much slower than usual and how much slower they are. Depending on the size of the file, you don't have to download the entire file; you can cancel the download. But if the speed is much much slower, there may be a problem with the connection.

It is far too early to reach any conclusions about what the problem may be. But if Internet Explorer and Firefox were getting slower in general, we would see complaint after complaint from user after user.

The problem may have nothing to do with the browsers. You may have malware that is slowing things down or perhaps there is another reason I may not have knowledge to discuss. Just trying different browsers may not make a meaningful difference and may delay you looking into what may be the underlying problem.

Hello all.
I hope this is the best, most appropriate list in which to post this.

Firefox and internet explorer are becoming really slow for me.
What i'm in serch of is a fast and stable browser that I can rely on
until edge becomes usable.
Thanks so much.
ps. What about chrome?

Hello Jacob,

Great and it works perfectly! Thanks again it means a lot to read my pdf file for now with an ease as expected.

However, yes, it's not top of the line OCR, but, have been using it for a few years already, while occasionally, might use some online services for certain files.

PDF2TXT, from empowerment zone:

It has both normal text mode, and image mode which then processes each
scanned page using OCR.

Takes a bit of time, and depending on quality of scanned images,
output quality can vary, but, free, and simple.

Dear Group

Is there perhaps a free OCR programme that I can download. Abby Fine
Reader is too expensive for me to buy and the trial version only
allows for 100 pages. My document is 240 pages. The NVDA OCR add on
only does one page at a time which is time consuming.

hi,
it is a difficult way to do that,
it is better to get a version of abbyy finereader.
that programm can do that for you in the most easy way.
a right click on the pdf you want to make it readable and make the
choice
for abbyy finereader.
there you can make the choice to create a readable pdf.
no difference if it is a smal or a big pdf.
that is the way i do it.

Dear Group

I recently downloaded the OCR add-on and tried to use it on a PDF
file. It works well, but it only selects one letter when I press
NVDA+F9 and it only copies one letter at a time. How does one
select
the whole document when the OCR is complete?

Could you also, perhaps, send me a list of shortcuts for the OCR
or a
place where I can find them.

Please note that I use the newest Adobe Reader.

Thank you in advance.

I would point out that these are pretty obvious from a google search and also that the devs would rather we gave out the links to the page wich offers a link to donate. If you don't want to of course you can say so, but this is how things are done.

Hello there Fello listers!

I am interested in giving NVDA a try to add to my ScreenReader resources and would appreciate direct download links for the following programs to get me started in securing and learning this ScreenReader:

(1) NVDA2016.1.

(2) DNVDA Addons Web Site.

(3) Latest Audio or text NVDA Tutorials you may have or know of and are willing to share that I could use to learn how to use NVDA.
