Re: Not much success using Goldwave with NVDA

 

Hi,
Wait, you say you are using 5.5.5 (I think you meant 5.55)? I'm sorry to announce that any version earlier than 5.58 isn't supported. The add-on will work with 5.58 or later (going forward, add-on 4.0 and later will require GoldWave 5.70 or 6.x).
Not all commands from JAWS scripts are available due to technical reasons.
As for status bar commands, I believe you are referring to Control+NVDA+number row commands? They were defined according to how status bar information is displayed on screen (from left to right, these are channel, length of file, selection and others). I usually prefer not to assign commands such as Alt+Shift+letter because they might conflict with native GoldWave commands (unless I need to provide feedback or workaround).
Cheers,
Joseph

Subject: [nvda] Not much success using Goldwave with NVDA

Dear all,
I was recently trying to learn audio editing with Goldwave (version
5.5.5) using NVDA version 2016.1 and the latest development snapshot of the Goldwave add-on. Although the audio tutorial series (in the Urdu language) was recorded with reference to JAWS, I have wanted to stricly adapt all the key commands to NVDA and use NVDA for this task too.
However, I am finding that either I am ignorant about Goldwave usage with NVDA, likely because of lack of sufficient documentation material, or NVDA is not as efficient with the process as JAWS is (which I would not like believe is the case in actuality).
From hearing the audio tutorial series, the JAWS scripts key commands involving Alt + Shift and a certain intuitive alphabet to receive certain information is very logical and easy to understand, whereas NVDA's combinations for Goldwave are rather weird and require roting more than rationale. E.g. along with Alt Shift, I believe s, d and f is very comprehensibly used, so is u, i and o, as well as e, r and t, everything being easy to visualize and learn quickly, whereas NVDA's Goldwave add-on has absolutely random keyboard shortcuts, and maybe less too in number and information as opposed to the JAWS scripts.
Reading the status bar is also more useful in JAWS than in NVDA as was demonstrated in the audio tutorial, and for some odd reason, I am unable to use the Shift and Ctrl + Shift + left and right arrow keys to move markers and cursors with NVDA, as the JAWS user explains in the audio tutorial.
Conclusively, I would like to thank Joseph and the other contributors of the Goldwave NVDA add-on, and emphasize that a JAWS versus NVDA comparison is not the topic I intend to raise, Goldwave support is.
Since I seem to be able to locate no useful information on usage of Goldwave specifically with NVDA, and my initial impressions suggest that JAWS might be more efficient at this job, I am considering using JAWS while doing audio recording and editing, but I hope with your valuable responses and clarifications that might not need to happen.
Thanks for all the work the NVDA add-on team is doing!

Its still a bit clunky but its better than it was to some extent ie I
can use it if I fiddle.
I don't use all its features, skype chat, skype video and audio calls I
don't use anything else.
Skype is mostly a modified html page using the ie engine or whatever it
uses.
Its probably why they wish to upgrade it, ie is due to get retired, its
also heavily flash based as I had to shut down skype to load flash updates.

Skype is good for me for the fact that when required family can use
video with eachother, I also have a good quality speaker system for

For me its good to use video if I need to show my face to someone that

Re: Not much success using Goldwave with NVDA

afrim maja <afrim.maja@...>
 

Hello,
I honestly find no issues when using either jaws or NVDA. I do not use scripts though, because I do not use those features of gold wave that can be accessed only if you have those scripts. I use it only to clean audio and add some effects to different tracks.
In which area particularly are you facing problems? It sounds a little odd.

Re: using NVDA with the facebook website?

Afrim <afrim.maja@...>
 


Hello Dan,


Accessing facebook through NVDA may sound a little difficult in the beginning. It is so because you will deal with a lot of information in the page which may really confuse you. However, it does not have to be so difficult if you are a little careful. I’ve been a user of Facebook for a very long time now. I mostly have used it through its main website, but if you are not patient, and if you want a less crowded page, you can use either www.touch.facebook.com/, or www.m.facebook.com/.


In my experience, I found touch facebook a little better because it resembles the main website of facebook. It is indeed very crowded area, but I believe you will get used to it through some hints.


Use the quick navigation keys you use to navigate on internet like headings, links, buttons and edit boxes.


When you log in to facebook for the first time, you come across things like messages, requests, notifications and so on. To put this into practice, you press ctrl+home to go to the beginning of the page, and start navigating by using the down arrow key to see what you have in the page. The first link is “Skip to news feed”, then you bump into home and your profile. Note that these also have shortcuts, but I mostly do not use them. Then you find an edit box to search for people, pages, groups or places. After that, you have three buttons which stand for requests, messages and notifications. Now we come to what I suggested you to do in the beginning. “Use those quick navigation keys”. To make this more concrete, let’s suppose you log in to facebook, and you want to check your messages or notifications. Use “B” to move through buttons and you will jump to these buttons I described right away. First you find requests, then messages, notifications, and if you continue, you run into privacy shortcuts and account settings. To access the account settings, which is very important, you have to press insert+space to read these settings. When you find one which you need, press enter. The same procedure goes for requests, notifications, or messages. The difference is that on messages or notifications, you need to press tab to access the items.


We are not yet done. We are finished just with a section of facebook. Now we come to another part, which is reading news feed and other sections which are related to them. So again, let’s come back to the beginning of the page by pressing ctrl+home. Press “H” to move through the headings, because the news feed and the sections which come before are arranged so. You will bump into friends, pages, groups, favourites, people you may know and then news feed. Continue to browse by H, and you will be presented with what people share. An example could be, John Smith shared a link. Now press down arrow to access the information next to that heading. After you read what the post is about, you will have the options to like, comment or share. The post which may either be found by down arrow, or by using B, to move through buttons. Note! There will be an edit box next to each heading where there is a post, and that is for writing a comment or uploading a photo along with the comment. Sometimes, there are a lot of posts that come in front of you, and NVDA and many other screen readers become really slow. Something I forgot to mention is that apart from a heading which shows a post, there is also the next heading that displays the comments related to it.


Remember, we are not yet done. Now we jump to the next section which is chatting or sending and receiving messages. The chat is found in the end of the page. This being said, Press ctrl+End and you will go to the end of the page, where there is the chat. Press up arrow and you will find a search button to look for people whom you want to message. Press again up arrow and you may find options if I’m not wrong. Once again, press up arrow and you will hear “Chat conversation end”. Now, if you still continue pressing up arrow, you will run into people who are currently online. They may be 15, 20 or more. To make things easier, read the names of these people by links, and if you like to send a message to someone, press enter on his/her name. NVDA should move the cursor automatically to the edit box to type the message, but if it doesn’t, press this important keyboard shortcut “ctrl+end” to move to the end of the page, and press shift+E to find the edit box where you should type the message. Additionally,  you have an edit box to upload and send a photo. These edit boxes come with a name, so when you hear “type a message…”, stop there. When you are finished writing the message, press enter to send it. To read the sender’s message, press up arrow from that edit box and you will be able to read everything in the chat history. The same procedure should be followed even when somebody sends you a message, or when you activate a conversation from within the messages section in the beginning of the page that I described above.


If you were attentive listening to what I said, you will be able to progress very quickly and learn how to use facebook through its main website.


I hope this helped you.


Sincerely,


Afrim

I have written a short document on how to use facebook through its main website, but I'm not sure why isn't it sent correctly

build (which takes a few minutes max if you know about NVDA's community
website) you will have updates on master/next forever (until you
manually downgrade). This is an over complication of a minimalist
interface, and complexity is the root of all evil.

and the devs gave this explanation of why it was a bad idea I agree
with them.

How hard would it be from the official build, like in this case, 2016.1,
to put an option in the NVDA menu, maybe under Tools, that automatically
like downloading updates would let the user download and install the
latest snapshot build rather than them having to go out to the web site
and manually get it. Either that, or maybe under the General tab of
preferences, where you have the box to check or uncheck for checking for
updates, maybe have another one that says download snapshot builds when
updating.
What do you all think?

Re: Some issues with Windows 8.1

The keyboard was set to echoed. As a remedy, you may turn it off by pressing nvda plus 2 or nvda plus 3 to read your command line as it was. This is also done by others as well. Then, toggle it on when you are done and working with other application. Hope this helps.

The cmd issue, if I remember, only happens with Windows 8. I tried the Python command prompt and NVDA reads things just fine; only the Windows cmd that NVDA reads the output character-by-character. I remember this was not the case with Windows 7.
