Re: Repetition.

Gene
 

I don't think that is what is being described.  Evidently, when a program opens, the name of the program is repeated a number of times before the program can be worked with.  My question, and noone may know, is if this makes any practical difference.  In other words, even if the name of the program weren't repeated a number of times, the program might still not be able to be worked with for the same period of time or about the same period even if this repetition didn't occur. 
 
In other words, we don't know if this repetition occurs while the program is opening or after it has opened.

Well sometimes this happens if the bit which is focussed  refreshes.
 For example, when  I see items load into the system tray, but focus is on a
desktop item, every time there is a new item in the tray, the desktop item
is read again.
 For example, when dropbox or google drive start it can take a while for
their icon to appear in the tray, so if documents or computer is
highlighted, it says it again each time the tray updates.
I notice it on windows 7 and ten, but do not have 8
 On the other hand I do have a laptop running xp which when it shuts down
has the falling tones of nvda twice.
 The reason for that one eludes me.

So the answer for you is to discover why the desktop or whatever the item
is, maybe the program window title, is refreshed more than once. some
programs do this all the time, speed fan being a case in point. However not
seen it on firefox  I've not tried the 64 bit version, but of course if the
machine has toolbars and add ons in the browser its quite likely as each is
initialised it repeats  much in  the same way as the  download library does
if its open when a download is in progress.

Re: about firefox 50 and compatibility with previous versions of nvda

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Well, what is the issue with espeak new generation. I have to say I do not notice any problems that cannot be sorted by a few dctionary changes, but that of course is in English.
I think they will be missing out on a lot of functionality if the version of nvda is sleft old.Much better to report the issues in espeak on an nvda ticket and get it fixed.

Having said that, just trying it quickly with a portable version of the old nvda. 50 seems to work ok, but may have some issues that only show up in some cases.

Re: about firefox 50 and compatibility with previous versions of nvda

She can try using the portable version and see if she has problems.  That means she can keep the installed version as it is and eveluate the portable version's performance with whatever version of NVDA she wishes.  If she is satisfied, she will probably be satisfied with the installed version.  Or she may wish to continue using the portable version.  I use the portable version because if a problem develops involving loss or corruption of files in Firefox, I can simply delete the copy of the portable version I'm running and copy a backup copy to where I want it.  I can have the backup copy kept current by replacing the backup version with a copy of the portable version I'm running from time to time.  In that way, I have the same version with the same settings, add ons, book marks, everything the same backed up and replacing a copy that has become defective is very easy and simple.
 
I've seen reports here about problems with certain versions of NVDA and Firefox.  I don't know how widespread those problems are.  It may be that some people have them and some don't.  If your friend is interested, someone on list is likely to have information about where to find it.  I didn't keep the information myself and it would probably be simpler if someone who already has it provides it.

Re: NVDA And Bluetooth Speaker

Hicks Steven (CORNWALL IT SERVICES) <steven.hicks@...>
 

Thanks, I Have checked in the control panel, audio devices, the Realtek sound device is the default and I have disconnected the Bluetooth now.
The odd thing is that the system sounds and JAWS run through the laptop speakers as required, it is just NVDA that is speaking at the logon screen and not at the desktop although if I shut down, it starts speaking again on the shutdown screen.

I have had this before with a set of usb sets.
If the sound is not on the windows sound mapper nvda will not switch.
I have also had the thing where windows will just not switch back unless you switch it back to the internal card.
There are 2 ways to do this.
1. connect the device used, then switch via sounds in control panel the speakers back to where they need to be, in theory with the right drivers if you get the latest it should work but it doesn't always do that.
Next get a sightling to switch it back for you,.
The easiest way is to switch back to your default before you shut down.
I used to get quite anoyed when say my brother had the device set to his expensive headset and just didn't switch it back or muted the sound.
In some cases I could plug in a cheap crappy usb set and change it back, other times I had to search through his clutter, find and wear his expensive gear he has told me to never touch, and then change the sound back to where its supposed to be.
There used to be a program called quickmix that did this in the old windows but I am unsure if there is a program that you can save configs via hotkeys to switch to a certain card.
Ofcause it has happened that I need the computer and there are no sightlings in which case I need to regain the use by any means necessary.
This involves me putting my recovery disk in and doing a reformat to get the audio back so I can use the computer and after I install everything again I forget what I am doing.
Its a big issue with users when you use a public system and they take their stuff away or plug it in and leave it there.

No. If you want to continue to receive master updates, I recommend you just run the test build as a  temporary copy ("Continue running") for testing Kindle and keep your master snapshot as the installed version. This is only temporary; eventually, once we feel the code is well tested enough, the Kindle support will land in master snapshots.

Re: very, very strange problem

According to the user guide it notes for the Smart Beetle: http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#toc110

and SyncBraille: http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#toc111 that the drivers need to be downloaded from HIMS and installed by the user.  Are we distributing a driver with NVDA?  I don't have either device to test myself.

Also, is there any error message?  Is there a way I can replicate the issue / resolution (if I had a HIMS braille display)?

but there for i have already the driver that works fine.
but i don't know who i can send that driver (dll) so that they can merge that file in the following version of nvda.
but for the syncbraille i have'nt a good working .dll file.

after i remove the braille display the hims syncbraille the problem was solved.
perhaps you know where i can send the driver dll for the hims smart beetle the file is called HanSone Connect.dll

Re: Driver Update

 

I agree.
Amd have a good driver detecter and updater and that updates everything they have.
Intel have a good one but yeah that one doesn't always work.
Some manufacturers if you know your model ie realtech hd will have drivers.
A small note at least for users.
When using the realtech driver updaters you will need sightling help for 1, the driver uninstall.
To finnish it and the start of the driver install because all sound dies.

Windows Update does a very good job of updating drivers if needed. For the few things it does not update (or, on rare occasions, screws up) you are wise to go straight to the manufacturer's website and support pages for the device in question and download the driver from them (and only them).

Re: NVDA crashed

 

The ms sound mapper is the right card to be honest, its fine as long as you don't need to switch to another card or have a default sound card or something that card is usually the windows default one which is only a problem if things are not connected right.

microsoft sound mapper not behringer speakers as I had. Now of course
since I was not expecting this to occur, I had not looked at the ini

the new version launched leving me to restart the machiene as all sound
unknown to me was being sent out to the default windows device not the

a reboot of the computer put things back, but the tell tale in the first

I thought so until this morning when I updated to the new next snap and all speech stopped. It looks to me like there is a new routine that is processing the .ini file in the latest build, however what it seems to have done is altered the sound card selected in windows 7 so it says microsoft sound mapper not behringer speakers as I had. Now of course since I was not expecting this to occur, I had not looked at the ini file to see if it had corrupted, but certainly the sound was cut off as the new version launched leving me to restart the machiene as all sound unknown to me was being sent out to the default windows device not the one selected and used by me previously. weird or what? Needless to say, a reboot of the computer put things back, but the tell tale in the first run after the update showed the .ini file had the wrong sound device selected. I think they will need to watch this as it really should not change anything in the .ini file until its checked in windows what is being used.

Hello,
it might have been the ini file, or the synthesizer crashed, in which case
NVDA will be smart enough to use Espeak as fallback so as not to get the
user stranded in silence.
Kind regards,
Felix

Thanks that did it. Don't know why my choice of syn changed.

Hi Don,

The Synthesizer dialog is where you can specify the synthesizer being
used. Press NVDA+CONTROL+S to open this dialog and select the correct
synth.

After that, you can use NVDA+CONTROL+V to open the voice settings dialog
to customise the chosen synth and change its voice behaviour.

Is that what you were after?

Regards

Quentin.

I had NVDA set to use access32 as my speech syn and it was working
great. Today when I started NVDA I was back to the original Espeak
voice. Not sure what happened but I forgot how to install the
access32 syn. It is a bit strange in that Access32 is still in my
addon list and it shows as running. How do I reinstall Access32 to
resolve this issue? I am running the latest version of NVDA on a
Win 10 system.
Thanks

Re: very, very strange problem

P. Otter
 


hi, i'm afraid that i now know the problem, i'm not sure but i think there is a problem in the driver file syncbraille.dll.
because there is also a problem with the other hims driver that comes with nvda.
that is for the hims smart beetle etc.
but there for i have already the driver that works fine.
but i don't know who i can send that driver (dll) so that they can merge that file in the following version of nvda.
but for the syncbraille i have'nt a good working .dll file.
but i think that's the problem.
after i remove the braille display the hims syncbraille the problem was solved.
perhaps you know where i can send the driver dll for the hims smart beetle the file is called HanSone Connect.dll
cheers

Hi Paul,

NVDA should have created a log of the crash.  If you can copy that here it might help troubleshoot.  Steps for getting the log and information about what it contains can be found here on our GitHub page: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/LogFilesAndCrashDumps

Kind regards

Quentin.

hello all, a friend of mine gave me a braille display, it is a hims sync braille display.
it works fine, all is working properly, but when i want to restart nvda, my computer is crashing completely, it makes a reboot and nvda tells me that the configurationfile is damaged and nvda is back to vactory settings!
i've allso a hims smart beetle, but there was no problem when i try to restart nvda.
i don't know what is the reason that with the sync i can'nt restart nvda but with the smart beetle there is no problem.
and that while the hims sync braille is in the list of braille displays of nvda.
is there anybody who is using also the hims sync braille?
what can that be?
cheers

You're right... Italian voice are... CRAP! (I said it... I'm an old lady, I can afford saying nasty things... lol).


Thanks for the tip of pressint ctrl+t for Italian... I pressed Ctrl+r, and it didn't work...


I must try. No idea though as to sapi5 voices...

Hope someone can come up with something nicd along these lines.


Ciao,

Ollie

ps: Have you still got Drriik? I have Ozzie now; a young, wild yellow lab...

Hello, in particular to Ollie.
Ok, I installed Kindle 1.19 and the NVDA appropriate snapshot.
There are two things to say, a part of a great thank you for this work.

The first, I'm italian and Kindle installed on my pc with the italian interface and when I press ctrl-t for reading books with voice, it started with the italian synthesizer Elsa, that is the default on Windows10.
So, reading italian book is possible also!

The second thing is... can I change synthesizer?
Ok, I have NVDA and I can read books with it, but if the ebook haven't the advanced typesettings on, NVDA can't read it, instead Kindle read by itself.
I tried importing a pdf for example, and as expected, NVDA doesn't read the text, Kindle yes with the ctrl-t option.

But unfortunately in Italy Microsoft voices are ... ok, better don't say what they are, the problem is that I can't change the synthesizer to a sapi5.
Oh, you can change it for Narrator and works, but if you want to assing your default synthesizer of Windows to a Sapi5... no chance for me!

Some ideas?

Hello Jamie and all,


This works great on my machine, running Windows 10 latest update and the
NVDA snapshot you recommended.


Pity the reading feature is only available for English, and other
languages were never added.


As a matter of fact, I could only install the Kindle for Pc with
Accessibility Plugin because you gave a link on the NV Access site.
Otherwise, for us outside the US, or maybe the UK, downloading the app
from Amazon is not allowed.


Anyway, this is a great step forward in NVDA development.

Again, thanks for the great job!

Ollie
