SAPI voices not speaking when I switch to them with NVDA

Pranav Lal
 

Hi all,

When I switch to a SAPI voice like Microsoft David, I do not get any speech
output. I suspect the problem is SAPI rather than NVDA because other programs
that use SAPI are also not speaking. At one time, it was easy to fix such issues
by reinstalling SAPI but SAPI 5.4 is incorporated into the operating system.
Operating system = Windows 10 64bit build 1607
Nvda version = 2016.3
Anyone any ideas on how to troubleshoot this or who I can ask?
Pranav


Re: how to using NVDA have A USB thumb drive tel you how much room is left on it

Kevin Cussick
 

Just hit alt and enter this will get you straight to the properties.

Hi Casey,


If you highlight the USB drive at the drive level--where the C drive and
any other discs are shown, if the Computer Window is maximized, NVDA
will read the total used and free space. Lacking that, if you highlight
the USB drive at the drive level and right click and choose properties,
NVDA will read a much more detailed list of properties including used,
free and total space.

Now when I used to use window-eyes and inserted A USB thumb drive and
then went under computer and looked threw my drive list.
It would tell me when I got the the drive letter that had the USB
drive connected to it.
How much was used on the drive like 98 percent or 75 percent.
And then when I would copy something to it.
It would tell me how much was need for whatever it was for me to put
on that drive if it was full.
So can you get NVDA to do this if so how?


Re: Backing up a Thunderbird profile, very strange problem

You can get a program called moz backup, this will backup profiles in any Mozilla program.

The only reason I wouldn't format a drive say 32gb and or lower as ntfs
would be if you are accessing a talkingbook player or players that use
drives, for whatever reason the plextalk and others round just don't
support anything over fat 32 and only up to 32 gb drives. they don't
support ntfs and I wish they did.
I format all my drives as ntfs because I get faster access and such with
natively running file systems.

Hi Guys

The described prompts about stream loss is related to the flash drive
formatted as FAT32 rather than NTFS. There will undoubtedly be many
arguments for and against formatting a flash drive as NTFS, but I won't
go into them here. In some cases, when building a bootable flash drive,
it is necessary to format as FAT32. However, if the flash drive is used
only for storing files for backup purposes on a Windows based system,
re-formatting the flash drive as NTFS will solved the problem Chris
described.

A last note, if you are also using the flash drive for porting files
between a Windows based machine and a MAC, NTFS is not an option, since
MAC cannot read NTFS partitions.

Hope this clears up the confusion.

I really don't know what that copy files without their properties
thinghy means but I get it here all the time but only if I copy to a USB
drive of any kind like a flash stick or an external USB drive.
Apparently there are some invisible file properties that just must take
too much bandwidth to pass through the USB interface as I can copy the
same files from one internal disk drive to another without getting these
notices. Anyhow, there's usually a checkbox that asks you to do this
for all subsequent files and if you just check this and then tell it to
go ahead and copy without the properties, it should then just copy
everything without you needing to do anything more.

Hope this helps.

This is just totally strange! So... I'm running Windows 10 Home, 64
bit, Thunderbird 45.2.0, and JAWS 18 without the Thunderbird Blind
script from John
Martin. I have them, but don't have them installed, as I don't find
them all that helpful.

Anyway, I have only one profile which contains one e-mail account: my
Gmail, which is of corse set up as IMap, not as Pop3.

Basically, what I'm trying to do is, I'm trying to copy my profile
folder from appdata\roming\thunderbird\profiles over to a flash drive,
so that I have
a backup, in case I ever need it. I get the folder copied with no
problem. Note, I'm not copying the actual profiles folder. I'm copying
the actual profile
folder within the profiles folder with the weird number string. OK,
that works fine, and I get it to my clipboard, no worries. Then, comes
the problem.
I navigate over to my D drive which is my USB flash drive. I then
paste with ctrl+V right there in the root of the USB drive. Things
start copying until
about 89% when I get an interupted action. It asks if I want to copy
the current file as is, without its properties. If I say no, then the
whole paste
process aborts. If I say yes, then it goes into an infinent loop
asking me if I want to do the same thing over and over, and never ever
progresses beyond
that 89%. Yes, I do have admin rights, and yes, I'm logged on as an
administrator, and further, UAC is disabled completely. I know for a
fact that this
isn't an issue of me having a corrupted installation, as I had this
same exact problem with another laptop I used to own, come to think of
it, and I never
could figure out how to get around it. It seems like I finally wound
up using the command line, and copying over the profile with the old
school XCopy
utility, but I don't remember its syntax. Even if I did though, that's
a really! annoying way to have to do this! There's gotta be a reason
this is happening.
I should add that this is not a portable installation of Thunderbird.
I have it actually fully installed to my C drive as a standard
installation.

I wondered if maybe even though I'd hit alt+F4 and closed Thunderbird,
if maybe it was still running in the background as a process or
service, and therefore
wasn't letting certain files copy over, as they were locked in use,
but that's not the case, as I see nothing in task manager that would
indicate such.
Further, I've rebooted, and have tried this before ever even running
Thunderbird, and I still get the problem. I've tried with multiple
different flash
drives, and I've also reformatted the drives. I've formatted them both
as FAT32, as well as NTFS, but in both cases, the issue is persisting.

Honestly folks, I'm out of options. I don't know what on earth is left
to try.

Any ideas? Normally, I'm really good with this kind a thing, but this
has got me really baffled.

Chris.

Hi


When you push the windows key nvda will land in the search box.

if you arrow up once it will put you in the apps view list.

if you then arrow down the list it will come up with the following. apps
view list recently added. as you arrow down you will hear most used
groupingnumber grouping etc etc as then it will tell you the programs on
your pc.

If you are still in the search box and do the following you will get the
following results. here you tab either once which will give you the
following, then you have to arrow down to them.

navigation menu list, user account for ... places list settings, power.
If you press the enter key on this options will be given and from there
you can restart the pc and so on.

If now instead of going down the navigation list, you tabbed again it
would say apps view list recently added and if you tab again it will say
pins view list and if you tab again it will put you back into the search
box.
You can use the arrow keys to go through those sections.

Also under the apps view list you can press a letter and it will jump
you down to that letter then you have to arrow to what ever it is
starting with that letter.

Brian,

Windows key + e will give you windows explorer, and windows key + x gives you many interesting options. Arrow up twice for the power button options.

Hi I am using NVDA.
Now when I used to use window-eyes and inserted A USB thumb drive and

It would tell me when I got the the drive letter that had the USB
drive connected to it.
How much was used on the drive like 98 percent or 75 percent.
And then when I would copy something to it.
It would tell me how much was need for whatever it was for me to put
on that drive if it was full.
So can you get NVDA to do this if so how?

Jarte is a better choice if you don't like ribbons and it can do a lot more than wordpad.

I have just checked both Notepad and Ted Notepad. I encounter the same
thing. But, when I select character by character, and word by word, it
is spoken, which means that NVDA is silent only when I press shift plus
down arrow.


Let me ask you to accept my suggestion.

Try pressing: control plus alt plus N to restart NVDA while a document is open, and then try selecting apiece of text by the key combination of shift plus arrow down.

I have Classic Shell installed and can get a start menu that looks more like Windows 7 with a easy option to use the Win 10 start menu if desired.
