Hi


the quickest way is press the windows key and in the search box type
default apps. you may not have to type it all but it will come up with a
search result called that. Press the enter key on it.


in that section it will give you options such as default browser, email etc


Tab to the one you want then either press the enter key or space bar. it
should drop down a list of stuff you can use, then press the enter key
on the one you want.


do that for your other apps if needed.


the following page might help you as well from off my website it is a
few of the things i changed etc. this was written when windows 10 came
out and the one for the start menu is the older way not the new way.
apart from that you might find some thing useful on it.

Hi


If you want a media player to play your dvds and in most cases turn on
the audio description if on the dvd, VLC media player does the job.


some times you might be unable to play a dvd where they show the stuff
on screen, but the cloud ocr add on can help you there to.


I do have a tutorial on VLC media player if you are interested, it is
basically more written for playing music and dvds.

Hit the start button and in the edit box type windows update and hit enter.
The next screen has a button for checking for updates as well as a lot of other info. I can tab through some of the items but I can find no way to read the screen line by line with the arrow keys or mouse keys. Why is this screen so difficult to read?

Re: Power Media player or Power DVD

 

To be honest for the ultra encripted dvds I use windows media player and fiddle with the dvd menus that way.

Thats mostly the startrek paramount stuff and some soni, bbc and the rest of it.

For 99.9% of all dvds I use dvd audio extracter.

Its I think 40 bucks but it extracts the audio in lots or from file by file.

One thing that really gets my goat is for example you buy or get a dvd from somewhere.

Then you can't just play it that easily, you need to crack the disk to get the files.

And for those that I have to bother with to get working I watch once then put on a shelf.

On the other hand if I can crack them then I can play the files where I wish.

I know there is a risk but its a pitty that there isn't another way for the blind to get access to audio described content in a way that the sighted can enjoy the same content while you muck round with your content.

Re: MS Creator Mail Command

Gene
 

An additional thought occurred to me after I sent my last message.  Perhaps, if my guess is correct, NVDA could be scripted to announce that carrot reading should be used if it detects that someone is using plain text to read mail in the program. Perhaps there could be a don't show me this again check box when the announcement comes up.

That comment raises an interesting ttechnical question.  The carrot is, presumably, designed to display a cursor in the program window when reading.  Are you reading mail as plain text or as HTML?      If plain text, the carrot may be causing NVDA to react as if there is a real cursor in the window.  If you are reading messages as HTML, browse mode would probably be used, thus making carrot mode do nothing.

Re: NVDA with Edge browser

Gene
 

I doubt there is much advantage except that certain things like Curtana (spelling) results are shown in Edge and you can't change that.  There may be some minor technical advantages, I believe I read that Edge processes JAVA script faster but I don't consider such things at all important.  I suspect there may be some visual differences some sighted people might like.  I doubt there is any meaningful reason for blind people to use Edge, although, the more browsers, the better since one browser may work well on a certain site with a screen-reader where others may not.  I don't have Windows 10 so I'm expressing opinions based on my general impression of how browsers are all becoming increasingly alike. 
 
It would be interesting to get comments from those who use Edge or have tried it.

First, thanks goes to Gene Asner for putting together a tutorial for those transitioning from Window-Eyes to NVDA. I’ll consider this one of the user side contributions to our ongoing Project Contact Lenses, a community initiative to embrace users, developers and scripters of other screen readers.

The idea of having the add ons come down automatically or alerting you of the update i do not mind.

 

Joseph has done it with the windows 10 essentials add on and the weather one is slightly different but does the same idea.

I think they are looking into having it done but things have to be worked out.

 

I would rather pick my own add ons and if down the track once installed they alert me of the update then download automatically then install no problem with that.

 

But i do not like the idea of having all add ons even the ones i do not want come down if i do not use them.

 

I am sure when one time i downloaded a copy of window eyes it automatically got them maybe even the ones i did not want.

Some people might not have alot of space on there hard drives.

Re: soft-voice and objPad comments

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


Use the nvda key + letter N to get into the preferences of NVDA, then go
down to tools, a sub menu will appear, then go down to manage add ons
then press the enter key.


When you go into that section it will tell you what add ons you have
installed, but you will be looking for a button called get add ons then
press the enter key.

your browser will open to the place where the add ons are for the
project. Go down to the one that was mentioned you should be able to
jump down by headings then there will be a link to the page where it is.
Locate the add on there and either install it from there which i think
if i remember well can be done or download it to your computer then
install it from there.


There are tutorials on how to do it if you have not done it before.


the info for the add on can be found on the page on how to use it or if
you do it through the manage add ons section either help or the one
after it most of them now will take you up to that page when pressed on.


hope this helps.

Upon using objPad for a bit I can say that it is excellent at what it
does! I wanted a jaws-like-cursor for NVDA? I got one and in fact its so
awesome because it takes the old jaws cursor along with the jaws touch
cursor and rolls them into one yet its even easier to use! I really
really like objPad and will be telling everyone about it. And I may have
found another free synthesizer addon for NVDA for all of us to use. For
personal use only, not commercial use... It is called soft-voice and it
sounds similar to eloquence but better than eSpeak. I have one or two
more things to check out with the soft-voice tts makers but once I do
and everything is go then I'll let all of you know the final verdict on
soft-voice tts. I can tell you that it sounds a bit like eloquence but
it only supports english and spanish languages. and that it has a bunch
of interesting novelty voices along with the normal voices and its very
small and fast and responsive. I will not post it here though until I'm
certain its fine with the authors.
