You're quite welcome.   Having to dig into this sort of stuff for the first time in response to questions on groups like this one helps me to add arrows to my metaphorical quiver with regard to specific screen readers.   That never hurts me, either (though I have a tendency to forget what I've learned if I don't use it.  The old "use it or lose it" principle, particularly for novel information).

Other NVDA Voices?

Tom Behler <tombehler@...>
 

Hello, everyone.

 

I have just joined the NVDA e-mail list, and am getting introduced to NVDA.

 

Actually, I use Jaws as my main screen reader, and simply want to have NVDA on board as a back up screen reader should Jaws fail, or be unusuable for certain applications.

 

Anyway, I have been told that alternative voices are available for NVDA. … Specifically, I have been told that the vocalizer female voice (similar to the one the iPhone uses), and Eloquence are available.

 

Can someone tell me where to find these voices?

 

Also, are they free, or must they be purchased?

 

Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

epub format

Marisane Moruthanyana
 

Afternoon list subscribers

 

May I know whether there’s a way in which to read epub material.

 

I read a little about the format and have heard that it is somewhat accessible.

 

May I ask anyone of you who ever read an epub-formatted book to elaborate further about the format?

 

I hear people who read books in that format saying that one can only read epub books through google chrome, because google has what they call readium reader and that reader can read the books in the format.

 

Are you aware of that and how accessible is that with a screen reader like jaws or nvda?

 

Does it mean that internet/firefox browser cannot handle epub material?

 

What other application does one use to read books in the epub format?

 

Your assistance in this regard is appreciated in advance.

 

With respect

Hello Hank,

If you go to https://www.nvdacon.org/nvdacon-2017-program-and-schedule

When going to each session, you will see at what time it starts for your timezone. This is under Heading 3 details.

For example, the opening forum starts at 20:00:00 my time, you should have another time displayed.

I hope this helps.

Re: Keep reading area that is not the focus

bsmasiero@...
 

Hi Brian and Joseph,

first of all, thank you both for your help.

I will have a look at the golden curson.

Meanwhile, the software we are using is the Diagnostic Suite from Interacoustics.
It is used to control their AC40 audiometer (http://www.interacoustics.com/support/ac40)
I don´t think you can download a free copy of it in the web.
But in this link (http://www.interacoustics.com/images/products/equinox/v2/xmodules.png.pagespeed.ic.YoGJO-Qa3B.webp) you can have a look how the screen looks like.
As you move the arrows the circle/cross points in the red/blue graphs are altered synchronously with the values in the black box on top.
What we need to do is to keep reading the black box (which NVDA does read when I pass the mouse over it).

Cheers,
Bruno

2017-05-18 21:52 GMT-03:00 Joseph Lee <joseph.lee22590@...>:

Hi,

The solution depends on what the app does when things change. If it sends specific events that NVDA knows about, then it might be possible to write an app module to take care of this.

May we have the info for this app, including the name, version, and the vendor info? Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Bruno,

         Someone else may have a much better solution, but my first reaction is that you should take a look at the Golden Cursor add-on.
 
          If what you need to do is jumping from specific location to specific location on the screen where the elements you're looking at are in fixed locations this add-on is absolutely ideal for setting up to do that.  If mouse tracking is on you'll hear what's under the mouse as soon as you land on top of the thing to be spoken.

          It seems to me that someone has mentioned a method of getting updated reports for a fixed area on the screen, but I'll be darned if I can point you to where.

Re: Keep reading area that is not the focus

Jonathan Milam
 

Hi Bruno,

 

Previously from Quinten:

To set a "hotspot" you can have NVDA read while still working elsewhere, you can use the review cursor.  Move the review cursor to the object (the countdown timer in this case) that you want to be able to read, then press NVDA+7 to turn follow system focus off, so the review cursor won't jump back to the current focus when you move around the screen normally.

 

See the section on Navigating with NVDA in the User Guide for more information: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html?#toc29

 

The "Basic Training for NVDA" module also contains extensive information on using the review cursor and object navigation.

Hello everyone,

 

I´m new to NVDA and I´m hopping you can help me with a usability question.

 

I have a audiology student that should use a audiometer control software.

He can control the audiometer with the arrow keys.

This will modify a figure, wich is the focus region, but also will alter the values displayed at another area of the software.

If I hover the area with the mouse NVDA will read the new values.

 

My question is: can I set up NVDA to continually scan a single area in the screen and read it´s values once they are altered?

Or can I create a macro that reads that area every time I hit an arrow key?

 

Thank you guys for your help.

Cheers,

Bruno Masiero

Enes,

           Yes, but I was sticking with NVDA terminology.  Browse versus focus modes.   JAWS uses Browse versus Forms modes.  Focus/Forms mode is where you can do data entry and/or editing in the cell/edit box/other object that accepts text input that you find yourself in.

NVDA is in several parts.
The program can be removed with Programs and Features.

The user configuration won't be removed when the program is, and this
confuses a lot of people. Do this:
1. From the Run dialog (Windows+r), type:

%appdata%

And press enter.
2. Find nvda in that directory and delete it.

It's best to do this when NVDA is not running.

If you just want to restore your user settings to factory defaults
without addons, then deleting the configuration should be enough.

Re: Best Way To Remove Nvda And Do A Clean Install

 

well 1. uninstall nvda as normal using a portable nvda just uninstall nvda from the nvda menu or programs and features

then go to the following folder %username%\%appdata%

or just type %appdata% in run box.

locate nvda folder and hit delete on that.

Next go to c:\program files on 32 bit systems or c:\program files(x86) on 64 bit systems find the nvda folder and hit delete.

Next go to c:\programdata and find anything called nvda and delete it.

The most important folder is the application data one.

Reinstall nvda and redo your settings.

Re: NVDA With SmashWords eBooks?

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

As I mentioned to David in a private email, Epub files are just zip files with (mostly) html files inside. There's other things mixed in there too, but I just unzip the epub files, and read them in my browser of choice (which of course varies depending on what os I'm on). It works for me, and no special epub software is recuired. Now, encrypted epubs are a different matter, for those, you will need a dedicated epub reading software, as unencrypting the files is not a simple process, and is most easily performed by software designed for the process.

Hope this helps.
