NVDA+P will let you change the punctuation level on the fly (without needing to go into the voice settings.  The procedure that Gene offered certainly works too.

What I said earlier is that you said that control NVDA s and control NVDA key v didn't work.  You then said that someone told you to use the same commands and they work.  I don't know what you meant to say.  I mentioned it in a previous message because I couldn't tell if you understood what commands to use since you wrote the same commands when you said they didn't work and that they did.

Hi gene

 

According to the tutorial the shortcut to access synthesizers is control NVDA s, and when someone else told me to press NVDA control s, it worked, and the same with the voices.

 

I’m so sorry if I wasn’t very clear in my previous email.

 

But I must admit that you were, and still are of a great help for me and support with the info you have sent me.

 

If I may asking you again, is there a way of how to turn off something for a shorttime in NVDA to stop reading such as comas, dots and many others, when I’m listening to a tutorial?

 

Because they don’t lent me concentrate enough.

 

Many thanks once again for your help and sorry for the trouble I’m giving you.

I tried to use those shortcuts control nvda s, and control nvda v, but they didn’t work.

Then somebody else sent me another form, for synthesizers I have to press control nvda s, for voices I should use control nvda v, and they worked that way.

Do you understand that all commands such as control NVDA key s and Control NVDA key v are used without going into the menus?  You can get to the same settings in the menus but such commands are shortcuts that bypass the menus.  You can use them anywhere.  You aren't in NVDA when you use them.  You could be on the desktop, in a program, almost anywhere. 

 

In the menus, you would get to such settings by opening the menus, then down arrowing to preferences and pressing enter.  Then down arrow to either synthesizer and press enter or voice settings and press enter.  It sounds as though you would save yourself a lot of time and trouble by working with a good NVDA tutorial such as the one I sent a link to a number of days ago.

Last time I went in to the menu, I entert the in put section and I pressed the space bar on the first item without knowing what was going to happen,

 

That’s why I couldn’t access the synthesizers.

I woke up this morning, started up nvda, and all of a sudden, my insert key

I wonder what in the world caused it to all of a sudden start working?

Does anyone happen to know?

Re: strange problem

Hi chris

 

First of all many thanks for the instructions of how to turn off the punctuation, secondly withregards theother thing, if I press control, NVDA s, it has a different meaning,

 

That is to change the synthesizer to 3 modes, talk, beap and silence, if I’m not wrong, because I have tried it several times.

 

As I said before I’m still learning and not to judging others, I’m  simply explaining what I have noticed.

 

Thank you once again for your support.

 

Best regards

Hi Anthony

It does not matter if the command is written Control NVDA s or NVDA Control s because it is exactly the same command.  You should be pressing and holding down the NVDA and control keys and whilst doing so, press the s key.  You may also see the command written as NVDA+Control+s, which better illustrates the command is a combination of the 3 keys.  Because the NVDA and Control keys are modifier keys, you can hold them down then press s rather than trying to press all 3 simultaneously.  Modifier keys send additional information from the keyboard to the computer when combined with a standard key, in this case the letter s.  NVDA is running on the computer, identifies that the keypress code you have typed contains the NVDA modifier key code so knows it needs to be processed by the NVDA program

 

As for the punctuation that is spoken, it depends on how you are reading the tutorial.  If you are arrowing character by character, it will read all punctuation.  If you open the NVDA voice dialog by pressing NVDA+Control+v, tab to the Punctuation symbol level combo box, set it to none and press enter.  This will eliminate the voicing of punctuation when reading line by line using the down arrow and using the ‘Say All’ command (NVDA+Down Arrow).

Dear All,

I am using Windows 10 and Outlook in Office 2016. I have generally been able
to work with Outlook Mail reasonably well. However, recently a problem has
arisen that I can't seem to resolve. One of my email accounts is a Microsoft
exchange account. When I first set it up, NVDA navigated through these
folders in the same way as other folders. Then, I needed to delete this
account and then set it up again. This was for reasons relating to the
Office 365 that our company uses. In other words, setting up this account
anew had nothing to do with the Outlook installed on my computer. Since
doing this, however, my navigating through the mail list has gone wacky:

1. I cannot navigate from one message to another using up and down arrows.
The only way to move through the list is by using ctrl + up or down arrows.
2. When I delete a message I get jumped down to a message of about a week
ago.
3. When I send out a message NVDA does not go to the next message, but to
the folder.

All of the folders not associated with the exchange account continue to work
normally and show no problems.

Warmly,
Ralph

Hello Bhavya,

Yes. I agree in that the speech ring in NVDA is much more flexible.

I think, however, that it would be desirable to make it possible to attach keystrokes/input gestures to each of the possibilities i.e. rate, volume, etc. We should not do it as default but just make the scripts discoverable from the Input Gestures feature.

Wha do you all think?

Daniel

NVDA's Synth Settings Ring is much more flexible than the JAWS feature you describe. Not only can it handle changing speech rate on the fly, but all the other voice settings NVDA has to offer. NVDA+Ctrl+arrow keys in case of the Desktop keyboard layout, and NVDA+Ctrl+Shift+arrow keys in case of the laptop keyboard layout is what you require. The said keys (depending on your keyboard layout) along with the left and right arrows will toggle through the various settings you can quickly interact with through the Synth Settings Ring. You can alternate the left and right arrow keys with the up and down arrow keys when NVDA has announced the voice setting you desire to modify, and clearly, the up arrow is an increment and the down arrow is a decrement.
How this relates to your enquiry is that if you toggle to the Rate setting in the Synth Settings Ring, you effectively have a keyboard shortcut in place to only rapidly change your speech rate from
anywhere: NVDA+Ctrl(+Shift on a laptop)+up/down arrows to increase/decrease NVDA's speech rate.

Re: Keystroke to adjust speech rate

Gene
 

As I recall, and I haven't used JAWS to any extent for years, the JAWS command is one command but it is not just a one key command.  I believe it is a two or three key command.  If your intent is to change voice settings and then save them, it's not worth worrying about the one extra step NVDA requires.  If you change the voice settings, to make the change permanent, save the change as you would save any settings changes you want to be permanent.  Issue the command NVDA control c to save the current configuration.  But be sure that is what you want to do.  If you issue the command, any other changes you have made will be saved as well, whether you intend to save them or not.

Re: nvda developers and users please help me. about using calc 5.2 and nvda

 

yes.
upon my navigation nvda says path and name of file even i read line by line!
one of developers told that its fixed in 5.4
but i wish that know whats the reason?
i dont use beta versions of programs specially for our limitation on
internet charge.
i love version 5.2.6.1 of libreoffice!

I found it did it the first time (as in, if I press the right arrow) but
not after that.

If it's fixed in 5.4, aside from that being a beta build, is there any
other reason you don't want to try it?

Hi Nasrin,

What problems are you having with LibreOffice Calc exactly? I tried
the
file you uploaded to your LibreOffice ticket (linked to from your
message)
and I found the following:

- The focus starts in cell P1. The content of the file is in columns A
to
0, so you need to move left from that starting position.
- When the file loads in LibreOffice Stable 5.2.5.1 (I'm downloading
the
newer fresh 5.3.3 as I write), NVDA reads the file name and path as you
noted, but that is only when it loads. The file is 14 columns and 500+
lines, so it takes a little while to full load, even on my relatively
new,
Windows 10 computer with an SSD.
- The language switches between English and Persian, so you need to be
using a synthesizer capable of both languages. Using Microsoft Speech
API
version 5, NVDA read the English text but not the Persian. I haven't
installed any Persian voices though it's likely Microsoft have one.
When I
switched to eSpeak NG, it read both languages as I moved through the
file.
- I am using Windows 10 with LibreOffice X64, so there may well be
differences from Windows XP and also X86. NVDA supports Windows XP
still
and according to the System Requirements document, so does LibreOffice:
https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/system-requirements/

Kind regards

Quentin.

as i read here before, calc 5.2 and later versions are not accessible

do you have any solution for this?
is there any setting that i should change to make calc accessible
again?
i wish that 5.2, because some of my books in 5.1 dont work with writer
and cause crash for libreoffice which is solved with 5.2
also in previous versions libreoffice crashes after exiting on windows
xp which is also solved in 5.2
also i have a few documents that i want to open with calc.

Re: Keystroke to adjust speech rate

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

hi


the quickest way is to use the nvda key + ctrl key +down  or up arrow to adjust the rate.


Using the 3 keys nvda key + ctrl key + down arrow key will slow the rate he speaks.

NVDA key + ctrl key + up arrow key will speed up his voice.

Where i refer to the nvda key it is either the insert key, the extended insert key or the cap lock key, so what ever one you chose as the modifier key you would use. for example ctrl key + insert key + up or down arrow key.

hope this helps.

by the way if you use the same keys ctrl + nvda key + left or right arrow keys you can do other stuff on the fly to do with the syn voices. for example pitch, rate etc etc.

Re: strange problem

Chris Mullins
 

Hi Anthony

It does not matter if the command is written Control NVDA s or NVDA Control s because it is exactly the same command.  You should be pressing and holding down the NVDA and control keys and whilst doing so, press the s key.  You may also see the command written as NVDA+Control+s, which better illustrates the command is a combination of the 3 keys.  Because the NVDA and Control keys are modifier keys, you can hold them down then press s rather than trying to press all 3 simultaneously.  Modifier keys send additional information from the keyboard to the computer when combined with a standard key, in this case the letter s.  NVDA is running on the computer, identifies that the keypress code you have typed contains the NVDA modifier key code so knows it needs to be processed by the NVDA program

 

As for the punctuation that is spoken, it depends on how you are reading the tutorial.  If you are arrowing character by character, it will read all punctuation.  If you open the NVDA voice dialog by pressing NVDA+Control+v, tab to the Punctuation symbol level combo box, set it to none and press enter.  This will eliminate the voicing of punctuation when reading line by line using the down arrow and using the ‘Say All’ command (NVDA+Down Arrow).

HTH

Chris.

Do you understand that all commands such as control NVDA key s and Control NVDA key v are used without going into the menus?  You can get to the same settings in the menus but such commands are shortcuts that bypass the menus.  You can use them anywhere.  You aren't in NVDA when you use them.  You could be on the desktop, in a program, almost anywhere. 

 

In the menus, you would get to such settings by opening the menus, then down arrowing to preferences and pressing enter.  Then down arrow to either synthesizer and press enter or voice settings and press enter.  It sounds as though you would save yourself a lot of time and trouble by working with a good NVDA tutorial such as the one I sent a link to a number of days ago.

Re: nvda skipping pages in microsoft word?

Bhavya shah
 

Hi Daniel,
I know what you mean. I myself used to experience this issue across
all Microsoft Word documents with NVDA (although I don't believe it
was NVDA's fault, though I should have tested with other screen
readers, something I didn't do) on a Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 system
with Microsoft Office 2010.
To navigate to the skipped page, use any standard navigation key
except only the arrows. In other words, if you use character
navigation, word navigation or paragraph navigation on Page 1, you
will definitely land on Page 2 as well instead of jumping to Page 3
which arrowing up and down results in.
To answer questions posed by others very succinctly, at least in my
version of this problem, this persists with all (proper) Word
documents, regardless of whether or not they have any columns, with
more or less the default zoom level set.
I am not sure if I still face this problem, but I don't think I do
anyways, but if it pops up again, I shall revert with any additional
testing that others may need me to perform for troubleshooting
purposes.
Thanks.

NVDA+P will let you change the punctuation level on the fly (without needing to go into the voice settings.  The procedure that Gene offered certainly works too.

What I said earlier is that you said that control NVDA s and control NVDA key v didn't work.  You then said that someone told you to use the same commands and they work.  I don't know what you meant to say.  I mentioned it in a previous message because I couldn't tell if you understood what commands to use since you wrote the same commands when you said they didn't work and that they did.

Re: strange problem

Gene
 

control NVDA key v.  Then tab to the punctuation settings and set them to none.  Then tab to and activate the ok button.  Once you want to return the punctuation settings to what they were before, either do the same thing again and change them back or use the command control NVDA r.  When you do this, you will hear, configuration applied and the settings from your permanently saved settings will again be used.
 
What I said earlier is that you said that control NVDA s and control NVDA key v didn't work.  You then said that someone told you to use the same commands and they work.  I don't know what you meant to say.  I mentioned it in a previous message because I couldn't tell if you understood what commands to use since you wrote the same commands when you said they didn't work and that they did.

Hi gene

 

According to the tutorial the shortcut to access synthesizers is control NVDA s, and when someone else told me to press NVDA control s, it worked, and the same with the voices.

 

I’m so sorry if I wasn’t very clear in my previous email.

 

But I must admit that you were, and still are of a great help for me and support with the info you have sent me.

 

If I may asking you again, is there a way of how to turn off something for a shorttime in NVDA to stop reading such as comas, dots and many others, when I’m listening to a tutorial?

 

Because they don’t lent me concentrate enough.

 

Many thanks once again for your help and sorry for the trouble I’m giving you.

 

Kindest regards

Hi gene

I tried to use those shortcuts control nvda s, and control nvda v, but they didn’t work.

Then somebody else sent me another form, for synthesizers I have to press control nvda s, for voices I should use control nvda v, and they worked that way.

Kindest regards

Do you understand that all commands such as control NVDA key s and Control NVDA key v are used without going into the menus?  You can get to the same settings in the menus but such commands are shortcuts that bypass the menus.  You can use them anywhere.  You aren't in NVDA when you use them.  You could be on the desktop, in a program, almost anywhere. 

 

In the menus, you would get to such settings by opening the menus, then down arrowing to preferences and pressing enter.  Then down arrow to either synthesizer and press enter or voice settings and press enter.  It sounds as though you would save yourself a lot of time and trouble by working with a good NVDA tutorial such as the one I sent a link to a number of days ago.

Hi rosemarie

 

I’m so sorry for the trouble I might have given you, but just to let you know that finally I managed to find out what was the problem.

 

Last time I went in to the menu, I entert the in put section and I pressed the space bar on the first item without knowing what was going to happen,

 

That’s why I couldn’t access the synthesizers.

 

Thanks once again for your help.

 

Kindest regards

Hello, Anthony,

 

NVDA control S is what you hit to go to a different synthesizer. NVDA control V is what you hit forchanging the voice.

 

Hope this helps.

Hello guys.

You're not going to believe this one!

I woke up this morning, started up nvda, and all of a sudden, my insert key
on the numpad started working correctly. Would you believe it.

I wonder what in the world caused it to all of a sudden start working?

Does anyone happen to know?

This is just getting more weird by the minute!

Thanks.

Chris.

Re: nvda developers and users please help me. about using calc 5.2 and nvda

 

hi quentin.
thanks so much for your kindness and attention.
yes. the problem is exactly this.
nvda says file name and path when i want to navigate in my document
and its very frustrating and make navigation and reading content is
very difficult.
i want to calc be like in 5.1 and previous versions.
but one of developers told me in the comments that this problem is
resolved in 5.4
but i only wish that use 5.2 version!
God bless you!

Hi Nasrin,

What problems are you having with LibreOffice Calc exactly? I tried the
file you uploaded to your LibreOffice ticket (linked to from your message)
and I found the following:

- The focus starts in cell P1. The content of the file is in columns A to
0, so you need to move left from that starting position.
- When the file loads in LibreOffice Stable 5.2.5.1 (I'm downloading the
newer fresh 5.3.3 as I write), NVDA reads the file name and path as you
noted, but that is only when it loads. The file is 14 columns and 500+
lines, so it takes a little while to full load, even on my relatively new,
Windows 10 computer with an SSD.
- The language switches between English and Persian, so you need to be
using a synthesizer capable of both languages. Using Microsoft Speech API
version 5, NVDA read the English text but not the Persian. I haven't
installed any Persian voices though it's likely Microsoft have one. When I
switched to eSpeak NG, it read both languages as I moved through the file.
- I am using Windows 10 with LibreOffice X64, so there may well be
differences from Windows XP and also X86. NVDA supports Windows XP still
and according to the System Requirements document, so does LibreOffice:
https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/system-requirements/

Kind regards

Quentin.
