I'm not sure what you are saying.  Chrome is supposed to update itself.

Re: confused about all of the screen reader voices out there

Chris Shook <chris0309@...>
 

I have Vocalizer for JAWS and I've looked at the vocalizer from CodeFactory. There doesn't sem to be any difference.
However, the Elequence voice for CodeFactory is choppy and not as clear. If your going to buy the CodeFactory for the Vocalizer voices, go for it, but if your going to buy it for elequence, might be best to stick with the Sapi product.
Hope this helps.

OK!
It will be better to send one page with embedded objects.
Ofcourse, due to the Firefox and NVDA problems with embedded objects, It doesn't work and I can't press those objects in Google chrome, only in Internet explorer.

Re: Touchscreens?

William Brandes
 

hi. i have three windows 8.1 tablets.

a dell venu pro, hp stream 7" and winbook 7" (which has a full-size usb port)

first, i would install the classic shell start menu emulator.

second, if needed, get a dongle to use a full-size usb keyboard.

third, use a bluetooth keyboard if you wish; i do for portability.

but, will need the full size keyboard to enable the bluetooth.

in my humble opinion, just forget touch with the windows tablet and
nvda. the screenreader works great with keyboard and that is fine with
me.

i am writing this email with my winbook 7 with full-size usb keyboard.

just sayin' ... william


Re: Touchscreens?

Hi.

With mouse coordinate tones turned on, do you have mouse noises when you move your finger around the screen?? Some devices use a touch pad device on the touch screen and have a driver that makes it somewhat function like a touch screen but it isn't but a pointing device, so accessibility layer for touch doesn't necessarily work well.

Try Narrator, hold in its windows key and press volume up. Have narrator closed before you do else only one screen reader can have access to accessibility. This could also explain your trouble with NVDA would you be having narrator running when you start NVDA somehow? If so NVDA can't have access to the accessibility layer.

Hi folks

Today, I received a linx 8, windows tablet. Running windows 8.1, after getting set up with some sighted assistance to install NVDA. and before anyone says it, reading the user guide, I find myself completely lost and baffled as to how one goes about using a touchscreen with nvda.

All of the gestures mentioned in the guide, such as, two finger double tap to open the nvda menu, three finger tap to change touch modes, flicking from left to right, up/down. double tapping, fail to register. I get some information when putting my finger on a random part of the screen, or sliding around, but nothing worth mentioning.

Am I missing something, or is it just very buggy?
also, I'm using nvda 16.1

Re: is there any option with NVDA to READ SINGLE DIGITS AND NOT A GROOUP OF DIGITS

Gene NZ <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi Moti

The way I usually read them is with the review text command in NVDA

On the numeric keypad, I will use the number one for previous character, the number 2 for current character and the number 3 for next character or in your case numbers. I am using a desktop pc and have the numeric keypad so this can be done.

Depending what it is in as well you might even be able to do it with the left and right arrow keys.

I think also some of the paid synths will do it, but i find the review text commands do the trick for me plus i can copy them if needed.

Goldwave tutorials

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,
As holidays are going on, I was thinking about something to learn that
is productive.
Audio editing and Goldwave had been in the back of my mind since long,
and now that some folks from my country has requested me to create an
NVDA tutorial on add-ons in Hindi, I finally want to ask you all for
Goldwave help.
I have Goldwave version 5.5.5 here, with the latest stable version of
the Goldwave NVDA add-on on an NVDA 2016.1 copy here.
I have absolutely no clue what to do next, and some documentation
reading here and there seems to be not of much help.
Thus, I would like to ask if there are any audio tutorials or
practical demonstrations on working with Goldwave using NVDA, basic
stuff like cutting, mixing, a little bit of audio effects, so that I
have a grasp of how audio editing with a screen reader works, and I
can possibly learn the advanced bits from elsewhere myself. It would
be sincerely appreciated if if you could point me towards resources
related resources that can help me learn NVDA with Goldwave, or if
someone is willing to just go through a little bit via Skype (my Id is
bhavya.09) or something, that would be wonderful too.
I would appreciate any assistance.
Thanks.

viewer like Balabolka. Acrobat Reader DC is free and can be downloaded
from Adobe's website. You can copy text from PDF files from Acrobat
Reader DC, unless the PDF file in question is protected in a way that
prevents text copying to work at all. But in such a case, I doubt that
you be able to extract/copy text from such a PDF file even with
another PDF viewer like Balabolka for example.

Re: audio ducking question

Patrick Le Baudour
 

Hello,

Your question seems clear enough to me, but so far i couldn't find anything to modify the attenuation factor. There is a windows option for ducking with phone calls (80% or 50%, not much of a choice), but nothing in nvda, narrator or as general setting that looks like that.
From what i've read so far, it cannot be controlled by nvda, it is handled by windows only.

Re: about balabolka and nvda.

Hi Navrin,

Here is another approach. Since the document reads perfectly once
loaded,Move to the part of the file you wish to select and then use the
little mentioned NVDA mark and select keystrokes inert + F9 and insert +
F10.

Here is how to do it.

1. Move to the selection using standard navigation keystrokes.
2. On the very first character, press insert + F9 to set the start marker.
3. Move to the very last character of the text and then press insert +
f10. NVDA will say: review text copied to clipboard.
4. Then just paste the text anywhere you want.

Hi Group,

I have just opened a PDF file in Balabolka and I have had no problems
with reading, navigation or copy/paste.

I have used it in the past to convert lengthy text files and other
formats such as PDF, EPub and HTML to synthesized speech using the
Microsoft default voice of choice. I have the new legal Eloquence SAPI
5 version which does a great job of interacting with the software. On
older slower computers: XP and early Windows 7, I did have a problem
with the program crashing when I tried converting lengthy text and other
format files to speech. On my newer Windows 8.1 8 core with 16 GB RAM,
I have no such issues.

Just what types of problems are you people having with the interface?

Hello,

Working with text from within Balabolka is not screen reader friendly.
At least not when using NVDA.
But you can open a file (e.g. PDF) in Balabolka, select the whole text
content with Control+A and copy it to the clipboard with Control+C.
Note however, that NVDA will not report that you have selected any
text. Then you can paste the copied text in some accessible text
editor like Notepad, AkelPad, Notepad++, etc. and work with it from
there.
Alternatively, after opening the file in Balabolka, you can save it to
plain text file (*.txt) from menu File -> Save as in Balabolka and
choose "Text File" from the "Save as type" combo box in the "Save as"
dialog. Then you can opened the saved plain text (*.txt) file in any
accessible plain text editor (Notepad, AkelPad, Notepad++, etc.) and
work with it from there.
Note however, that Balabolka's text extraction methods don't preserve
some formating information, including the page breaks and the pages
get merged in one large file with in some cases no distinction between
pages. In most cases however, there is at least one blank line between
pages, so you'll be able to distinct them from one another.
Even with all those suggestions for workarounds however, I strongly
suggest you to firstly try to open the PDF files in Acrobat Reader DC

Re: about balabolka and nvda.

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Nafrin,

Once the file (of any usable format) is loaded into Balabolka, using the
same selection keystrokes as in any standard text editor do in fact
work. What you (and apparently others) are not comfortable with is the
lack of feedback from NVDA. JAWS and other screen readers do have this
feedback--at least in some programs.

Just keep using the same selection keystrokes as you are used to and if
necessary, paste the contents into a standard text editor or if for some
reason, you want to save them using Balabolka, then just use control + A
to select the whole document and then press control + shift + S for save
as and then follow the usual steps to save the entire document as a text
file.

Re: Accessible screencasting programs?

WebInAria allows hotkeys to start recording, pause it, and stop it.

windows-key+alt+R
windows-key+alt+P
windows-key+alt+S

Primary issues had with it are just low-volume-levels in terms of audio recording, and that you need to use the NVDA screen review cursor to locate the publish button after you stop recording to then actually have it generate the video clip itself.

Stay well
