Re: NVDA with lefthanded keyboard

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

Yes, but if his numpad is on the left side, then the capslock key would be considerably closer to the numpad (and presumably the arrows) than it would be on a normal keyboard, that's why the suggestion was made.
However, since the insert on the numpad works just fine, I don't see any reason to modify the keyboard configuration to laptop or to use the capslock key, just use the insert and numpad arrows to do things, it should work just fine. The zero on the numpad doubles as an insert key, so there should be no issues with reaching the various NVDA functions.
I don't have a keyboard with the numpad on the left, but I'd sure not mind one, I'm (mostly) ambidexterous myself, and sometimes having to reach over with the right hand is irritating, I use the capslock key for that reason myself, so I can use whichever hand I'm comfortable with at the moment, so I have both enabled myself, even though I don't use a laptop keyboard or layout. It's all about what works for any given individual, and that's the nice thing about many many programs, including NVDA, there's usually more than one way to do things, which means there's likely to be something that fits any given situation.

My student is currently using a keyboard with the numpad, including
the enter key, to the left of the regular keys instead of the
right.  Using capslock as the NVDA key.  Is there an alternative to
NVDA+down arrow for sayAll?  He can use the numpad keys, but that is
only the review cursor.  Unable to use his right hand at all, he
would have to reach from capslock to the arrows to do this,
yes?  He's a guy with lovely large hands ... but not quite *that large.
Any suggestions would be helpful.

The default keys can be redefined with the Input Gestures dialog.

NVDA also works with Sticky Keys, a feature built in to Windows which allows you to press modifier keys once and have them stick until another key is pressed.

Assunto: [nvda] different configuration profiles and different dictionaries

I have two questions

First question: I have a version of NVDA on a USB-stick and I want to use
two configuration profiles. For example profile A with dictionary A (in
synthetic speech) and profile B with dictionary B (in synthetic speech).
Dictionary A and B are very different. For example, when working in
configuration profile A I want "US" to be pronounced as "United States".
When working in profile B I want "US" to be pronounced as "US". Is that
possible? How?

Question 2: In the map userconf is a map SpeechDicts. In this map is a file
"default". Is it possible to change the dictionary directly in this file? I
tried it, but it did not work.

I hope that someone can help me.

Best regards,

Annemiek

Re: NVDA with lefthanded keyboard

Gene
 

Where is the insert on the main keyboard.  You can use either the insert on the numpad and down arrow or the insert on the main keyboard and down arrow.  the caps lock when used as an NVDA key, duplicates all commands that are insert plus key or keys combinations.  You can use the insert even if you have capslock enabled as an NVDA key.  It isn't one or the other.  It enables another NVDA key.  It doesn't stop the others from functioning.
 
You said the person can't use his right hand so I tried both inserts and down arrow using my left hand.  Insert on the main keyboard and down arrow is easy to do with the left hand.  Numpad insert is not convenient, though I was able to do it with some annoyance by using my thumb on the numpad insert and my little finger for down arrow.

Re: Accessibility issues

 

Well they broke it each release so what is the difference.

lets see, dos 5 was good 6.22 was fine 95 was fine ish 98 se was ok.

2000 was fine but me wasn't xp was fine but retail sucked.

Vista sucked, 7 was fine, 8 sucked 8.1 was a bit better but still sucked.

win10 initial build 10240 was ok build 11000 was fine build 15086 was ok build 1607 was fine build 1703 has a few hickoughs but its ok mostly.

The difference is that at least we don't have to keep paying for releases.

Lets hope ms do what happle does and let you upgrade from os to os for free at least till your hardware doesn't support that version and then well.

The cloud is the future, in fact its getting harder and more expensive to buy offline versions.

Oh and even if its offline the cloud hosts the installers etc.

The traditional instals are gone and will remain so.

At any rate its the same with software in general.

Thank god ms has the insider program so we can try snapshots of the os and by the time it goes public its half fixed, the rest security, and other stuff will come out in time, it seems that ms is pushing 2 releases per year which means well we will just have to see.

Hello all,

I am Robert H. I have been using NVDA since Fall of 2013. I ran
it on

Windows 7, Lenovo laptop, and Windows 8.1, Toshiba Satellite
laptop. I

have had good luck and positive experience with NVDA, including the

transition to Windows 10 on both of my laptops in 2015. A few
days ago

I received a Windows 10 Build 1607 on both of my laptops. I have

noticed a big decline in the accessibility of NVDA with this windows

update. The ever present "unknown" is all over the place. This
occurs

on both my laptops that I own. Each laptop has the same build of
Windows

10 running on it. I noticed this on the task bar at first. Now I
have

noticed it on the Mozila Firefox browser and Mozila Thunderbird email

program. I use Mozila firefox and thunderbird exclusively. There
are a

few other places I have heard the "unknon" word uttered. Also,
when I

backspace to erase or make corrections, I do not hear what I am

correcting. Has anyone else out there experienced this decline in

accessibility? Am I doing something wrong?

Also webpages do not read correctly or not at all.

Thank you for any help I can get.

Does the NVDA log file give any messages indicating why it has failed to load the Vocalizer voice?  Try setting the loggin level to input/output to see if any messages are output.

It sounds like you are not saving the settings before you exit nvda

If you open the nvda menu and select save configuration after you have set it to the code factory synth

That should solve the issue

So basically starting from afresh new install of nvda  but again I’m not confident that would solve the issue either

Other than that you could contact code factory themselves to see they have a solution

It is set to automatically save the configuration on exit, and I have also clicked

"save configuration" during my sessions.

 

Thank you for trying, but that can't be the answer I dont think.

It sounds like you are not saving the settings before you exit nvda

If you open the nvda menu and select save configuration after you have set it to the code factory synth

That should solve the issue

I don't get that message, I just hear the default voice that NVDA comes with originally

instead of the Vocalizer voice.

 

Then i activate and it works until the next random reboot.

Hello

 

When you start the computer and nvda runs Do you get the message its not activated?

Or you just assuming its not activated for whatever reason?

 

And you have entered the key correctly with no more than three activationsper key

 

Then I suggest contact code factory regarding this issue to see if they can help

Hi,

I am presently trying to use the Focus Highlighter Add-on in a sort of haphazard way.
Can anyone help me to use it in a more constructive way to get the most out of the add-on.

Hi,

Brian: It was called xbmc before. Through a plugin, it can output to various screen readers in Windows, Mac and Linux. It also supports SAPI5 in Windows.


Matt: Press F12 once or twice until you hear two beeps (if Kodi does this sound when it starts, ignore this last sentence). If it still doesn't work when pressing the arrow keys, you may have SAPI5 as your speech engine, and a voice which is not working as the selected voice.

Cheers,

Sukil

Hi, subject pretty much says it all.

I installed kodi, and the screen reader add on.

I'm getting no speech from it.

Anyone on this list use it, or happen to no of a list for other kodi users?

Well this whole mess is why I'm not keen on office that runs on the cloud able to be changed at the whim of some programmer. Seems to me what Microsoft are doing with 10 is progressively breaking a working system then doing a big fix every so often to repair their damage.

I updated the Toshiba with Creators edition. Everything is back to
normal. Why do they do this? I had almost a week of inaccessible
computing and thankfully I have two phones I am able to use. I was at a
loss. I searched the settings and then clicked on updates and
security. I was hesitantabout upgrading to the Creators edition, but
when You all advised me to do so, I jumped at the opportunity and did
it. Thank you for the advice.

I would recommend that you upgrade your windows to the latest
build 1703 for best results with nvda

It has greatly improved since your build of 1607

Good luck

*Subject: *[nvda] Accessibility issues

Hello all,

I am Robert H. I have been using NVDA since Fall of 2013. I ran
it on

Windows 7, Lenovo laptop, and Windows 8.1, Toshiba Satellite
laptop. I

have had good luck and positive experience with NVDA, including the

transition to Windows 10 on both of my laptops in 2015. A few
days ago

I received a Windows 10 Build 1607 on both of my laptops. I have

noticed a big decline in the accessibility of NVDA with this windows

update. The ever present "unknown" is all over the place. This
occurs

on both my laptops that I own. Each laptop has the same build of
Windows

10 running on it. I noticed this on the task bar at first. Now I
have

noticed it on the Mozila Firefox browser and Mozila Thunderbird email

program. I use Mozila firefox and thunderbird exclusively. There
are a

few other places I have heard the "unknon" word uttered. Also,
when I

backspace to erase or make corrections, I do not hear what I am

correcting. Has anyone else out there experienced this decline in

accessibility? Am I doing something wrong?

Also webpages do not read correctly or not at all.

Thank you for any help I can get.
