Dear Joseph,

 

I really want to participate, but the time is a problem. I live in Belgium, so that’s the UTC+02:00 time zone. I cannot participate at 02:00 AM…

Is someone going to make a recording of the presentation, or not?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Warm regards,

Jordy Deweer.

Evening folks



I am Marisane from SA.



I, this year, registered for English hons with the University of Limpopo.



My lecturer recommends that we use the dictionary for some of the exercises.



He advised us to buy Oxford or Cambridge dictionary.



Fortunately, there's both dictionaries at my work place.



They are also in an electornic format, i.e. on a CD/DVD-ROM.



The IT colleague installed the dictionaries on two of the PCs in my work
station.



One pc has Cambridge and the other Oxford.



The dictionaries are very inaccessible with a screen reader, i.e. nvda or
jaws.



I use nvda as my main screen reader, but it cannot handle either of the
dictionaries.



I switched to jaws to check if it can handle the dictionary, but it also
couldn't.



Does anyone of you know how to use these dictionaries with a screen reader?



Do you know whether nvda has an addon for anyone of the two?



Your help is appreciated in advance.



With respect

Marisane

Re: Using NVDA with Conexant smart Audio?

Sounds like its too smart for its own good.
Is it a laptop?
I usually suggest a usb audio dongle for laptops aas many seem to truncate things or add funny clicks. Not sure wh7y this is, but suspect some kind of power saving system is being triggered.

Hello,
I just got a new computer that uses Conexant smart Audio and the speech
from NVDA is clipping off at the end of words. So rather than saying "start
button: ctrl+aesc" it says "startbutton: ctrl+e".
This makes using NVDA really difficult. I have googled the problem and
don't see any solution. I would really like to use this computer!

Re: Email client issue

Thunderbird seems to be very popular. I'm using windows 7 here and still find that Outlook express is useful, you get three licences for 2-0 Euros for tthe conversion program to run it.
It has one drawback on 10 though, Microsofts major updates trash it, and you need to reinstall. I'd assume that this is not the case with Thunderbird.

Re: need accessible OCR software for scanning books and printed materials

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

Interestingly, I even installed Office XP and its tools onto a windows 7 machine and the OCr works fine with the cannoscan scanner and some other scanners as well. Nothing is ever prefect, obviously.
I have been very impressed though with both android and Iphone KNFB reader as a quick solution to reading printed text.
I do not know what engine it uses, but my friends seem to fine it almost instant, and although its not free its not mega expensive and there is now a version out for Windows 10 apparently, though Not actually tried it, I'd imagine it has to be accessible.
Also the podcasts seem to be saying that you can have copies on mobile devices and windows for a one off price.
Something to look into.

I would expect that the version of Fine Reader you are using can be used with NVDA. I have an old version, probably older than yours. Your version may have more capabilities than mine and have different options. But in mine, and my impression is that in general, if you aren't scanning directly into Microsoft Word, you can scan a page, then copy and paste it into another program. I use Notepad. Then the page can be read in Notepad and you can paste as many pages as you like in and let them accumulate before reading them. Unless you want to spend money to upgrade, I suspect that what you have now is better than any free options.

This code is forcing the volume and a few other parameters, independent of what you set. Let's clear those.
Right near line 96, it says:

_bgExec(serialQueue, bgWrite, '\x013a\x012x\x017v'+text+'\r')

Change it to:

_bgExec(serialQueue, bgWrite, text+'\r')

Windows 10 App Essentials add-on and Skype UWP v11.13

 

Hello,

In version 11.13 of the Skype UWP app, now there are some keyboard shortcuts for easier use. Which is very nice, by the way. But when we use it in combination with the "Windows 10 App Essentials" add-on, there are keyboard shortcut conflicts. For example, now Skype itself provides keyboard shortcuts to go to recent conversations list, contact list and the list of chat bots. But the add-on also provides similar functionality with the same keyboard shortcuts, which are Alt+1, Alt+2 and Alt+3. The add-on uses Alt+3 to go to the chat edit text field, but I think that it should be changed to for example Alt+4, in order to avoid the conflict. As for Alt+1 and Alt+2, I think those should be removed from the add-on, since they provide similar functionality from Skype itself. Joseph, what do you say?

Thanks much in advance!

nvda not spelling suggested words in Spell Checker using Word 2010

Dan Thompson
 

Greeting to all

When using Word 2010 spell checker, NVDA will spell an error, but when tabing into the list of suggested words will not spell them.  I know speech is to automatically spell the error. However, when in the list of suggested replacements, holding NVDA Key and tapping up arrow will not spell the replacement suggested.

What feature do I not have checked on?

Thanks for any advice in advance.

Re: windows 10 creators update version, along with NVDA

Jacob Kruger
 

Shaun, are you referring to 2017.1? That's why have now moved over to next snapshot - 2017.2 hasn't been released yet?

I didn't lose much at all, in fact I lost nothing.

So, seems like of all the software had installed here, windows 10 upgrade only really seemed to remove the pseudo-form of outlook express that use for a separate e-mail account - nothing major, and, had pretty much expected it to happen.


Also think that, while not sure it was really an issue, should maybe have switched over to the NVDA next snapshot before upgrading, but anyway.


Stay well

Hi,

I updated my laptop to Windows 10 Creator's Update, and things seem to work fine. Be aware, if you attempt to update from version 1607 via a disk image and select to only keep files, you may encounter an issue where some settings, like some start menu settings, won't save properly. I contacted Microsoft support and they remoted into my laptop, created a new test account, and the issue was not present in the test account. So today in order to fix the issue I decided to reset my computer, rather than using the test account that the Microsoft support personnel created.

Hi, thanks


I went a different root though. I modified the downloaded package and reinstalled. When everything is fixed on my end I will hand it back to the original author for publication.

Brandt, to get to the add-ons under an installed version of NVDA, I find simplest method is windows key + R, type in %appData% and hit enter, in that folder, look for NVDA, and, under that, look for addons folder, and, there you should fine a sub-folder per add-on, and, in it's appmodules sub-folder, you should find the .py file he's referring to, which is a form of python source code text file.

How would I go about doing this?

Make sure the baud rate in the addon and the Doubletalk match.
Taking the addon from Jeff's site, on line 74 of doubletalk.py we have:

  port = serial.serial_for_url(PORT, 12000)

I don't know why it's set to 12000. Try changing it to 9600.

Hi there folks,


I am a relative new-comer to NVDA, though I am familiar with most of the
other screen Readers out there.


I find myself with an interesting issue, namely that my DoubleTalk LT,
connected via a Serial to USB adapter does not want to connect to NVDA,
and when it does, it talks gibberish. Any help on this issue would be
much appreciated.


Thanks so long.a
