Hi,

I believe the setting you are looking for is called "Use screen layout (when supported)." It's in the "Browse mode..." dialog in the preferences menu. If you want links to be read on single lines, uncheck this setting, and save your configuration.
The browse mode keyboard shortcut to toggle this setting is NVDA+V by default.

Hope that helps.

Re: forgot to tell you what audio editer I am using

Laughing Thunder
 

In Audacity, Press Shift+H to change the audio host. I am using Windows 7, and I have three options, "Windows WASAPI," "MME," and "Windows DirectSound." For me, the default option is "Windows WASAPI," which does not allow recording of both Internal sound and USB audio at the same time. Try either "MME" or "Windows DirectSound."
Then, press Shift+I to select the recording device. If you have an option for stereo mix, try using that to record.
If that doesn't work, press Windows+R to open the run dialog, and enter the following into the dialog.
control /name microsoft.sound
That will open the Windows sound properties. Switch to the recording tab, and make sure that all recording devices are enabled, and restart Audacity if changes are made.

Re: forgot to tell you what audio editer I am using

It's not the fault of the microphone.  The only way to record the microphone and your screen-reader is to find a way to record that mixes both sources together.  What you hear or Stereo Mix has already been suggested but if you are using Windows 7 or higher, and using the internal sound card that came with your computer, you probably don't have such an item and trying to get such an item using your internal sound card involves more experimentation than I believe it is worth. 
With external sound cards, my understanding is that such a feature also may or may not be available.
 
If you are using a new or reasonably new version of Audacity, the program provides for that kind of recording.  I don't know the name of the feature nor how you set it up.  It may be called something like loop back.  But this question should be discussed on the Audacity for Blind users' list. 
 
I don't know the subscribe information for that list.  If it helps you figure it out, the address to send messages to the list is:
 
The archives are available whether people are members of the list or not.  Do a Google search for loop back audacity or loop back audacity blind and see what information you get. 
 
Someone else may have the subscription information to join the list but that may not be necessary depending on what you find with a search..

Re: can't record my screen reeder and my voice

Laughing Thunder
 

It depends on what recording software you are using, but try looking for an option like stereo mix in your list of recording devices. It's unlikely that this is an NVDA-specific issue.

I'd just like to let yall know i'm up with google chrome now.
It seems very very good for the most part.
I don't know what the issue was when i tried it before.
But, i even set it as my default browser.
I still hope edge becomes better because i like to use cortana and if i remember correctly google and cortana don't really work good together, especially when your search engine is not bing.com and the browser edge.
Or will the extention chromtana or whatever its called do the same thing?
And, again, thanks for the suggestions from yall and thanks again to David for the tutorial.
Just fyi, it stays on my computer and no futher.. smile.
thanks

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,

Joseph

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

Very interesting! It would be great if cit could be used with NVDA. I'd say it can compare to Vocalizer Expressive...

So does google TTS Open-source software?
I think if we are directly request to google TTS developer team it not
far from here

I like pdf 2 txt. It's free from Empowerment Zone.

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.
cheers

Subject: [nvda] SELECT ALL OCR TEXT IN PDF


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.

Regards

Re: How to right click using laptop keyboard.

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.
