Re: strange issue that I can't run down.

So what exactly stopped. Ie If you blindly opened something or went to desktop did the nvda still work?
I do not knoow the game or its keystrokes but you can easily mute the nvda output with certain key combinations and if these are used in the game its always going to occur.
I think more info is definitely needed on what stopped and did it stop everywhere or just in the application you were in, and also was it a crash or just the output was switched off in the session.

Hi list ken here something very very frustrating happened today during a voicechat. was playing golf with the jim kitchen games during a hole in fact as the voice was speaking telling me how far to shoot all at once it stopped talking in mid sentence no sound came out. at first thought my speaker had died but when switched off no sound out of the headset. my microphone was keyed everything was running. when my key was cleared heard the moderator say he had cleared me I heard his voice. in other words everything was working. I had to sign out and sign back in. NVDA the kiteche game and talking communities were all operating. signed out signed back in and thanks to my computer ken shoots a zero on golf today my game was lost on the signout. so what happened everything was working and microphone was keyed and I could still hear sounds. is it NVDA is it the soundcard is it an update needed on the soundcard

Maybe you can do it properly with regular expressions in the speech dictionary.  I'm not sure you can do it without using regular expressions.

Hello,

Having got sighted help, it seems that the keyboard will not move down
to the power button, two keyboards have been tried, theis used to work
for me when I first got "10, so it seems that it is a Microsoft issue,
not NVDA, having tried with Jaws the same thing is evident, the mouse
can operate the power button.

It's alright to use alt F4 etc, but this issue needs to be sorted, where
will it end otherwise? What other keystrokes will disappear in the
updates that Microsoft make? sighted people use the keyboard as well.
Does anyone know how to get in touch with Microsoft and get some
response? I could stand outside the back door and shout I suppose,
[lol].

Hi! I am interested how to create the autocompletion file for notepad++? I am interested in that, because sometimes it is not doing what I want it to do. If there's some way to do it, please send me the material or instructions on how to do it. I have the exam soon and it would be great if I solve this problem before exam comes.
Thanks in advance.

What kind of bullets are you using?  If I type * something on a new line, it turns the asterisk into a "bullet" and that gets announced by NVDA at all punctuation levels except "none".

 

If you use a - to start your list items then you need puncutation level set to "most" or "all" for it to be read (NVDA+P to cycle through the options).

 

Make sure you have "lists" checked in the document formatting dialog (NVDA+CONTROL+D then press l until you get to "lists").

 

It announces bullets as you move through list items, and when you press enter to add a new bullet point.  The only time it doesn't announce the list bullet for me is if I navigate around a document and I have a lonely bullet on its own at the end of a list.

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

Hi Dan

 

I just tested the bullets insertion.

 

After selecting, in Word 2010, I press the application key and go down to “bullets”. After entering, NVDA does announce the bullets I inserted. True, when entering on “bullets” there is no speech response, but then, you must know that you selected to enter on bullets.

 

There are definitely other ways to insert bullets, but to me the above mentioned is definitely the easiest.

Re: strange issue that I can't run down.

yeah think I know that might have happened.  sound card was working could hear the moderator tell me that he had cleared me. when I hit alt plus ctrl plus delete espeak worked.  I think the kitchen game which uses sappi five voices and NVDA which is using dectalk also as a sappi five may have conflicted I had a similar issue when they were both using the same voice but not with two different voices.  I also know that at least one other member of that regular chat is using NVDA but not sure if he is using the same voice on both.  he is using a different language on the regular NVDA than what kitchen golf uses  one day we were playing and one player noticed some extra verbiage.  he has his NVDA set for spanish when he hit the space bar to make a shot the voice said Espacio will have to see if he's ever run into the same issue.  the rest of the group is using jaws so there is likely no conflict.  think what I'll try is toggle speech off in NVDA and see if it happens again.

Re: strange issue that I can't run down.

Not every problem is any more than a rare occurrence.  Is the game self-voicing?  Maybe the voice crashed.  What version of Windows are you using?  There probably is a utility that will tell you what crashed today.  This or that event may occur and mean nothing other than at some point, x or y may occur.  If the problem continues, that's another matter.  If you turn every isolated incident into a major event or cause for worry, you won't have a moment's peace.
