Re: I am interested in programming for NVDA

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

You probably ran up against the whole python is white space sensitive thing. That's one reason I'm not a big fan of python. I've not officially taught a class before, but I have worked as a computer instructor before, and I did teach my son programming when he was home schooled several years ago (it was just for one year, because we were having serious problems with his teacher, and the school refused to do anything about it), so I do have some experience, but not much. If nobody else wants the task, I'll join the group, and help folks work through whatever material is settled on for the training. It should be an interesting exercise if nothing else. Johnm has already volunteered to help out, though I'm not sure if his volunteering was to run it entirely, or just participate as a knowledgeable assistant/helper, so the first order of business is to decide on what material will be used for the sessions, and from there, sorting out who is doing what would be next. If anyone has mailing list capabilities, it may be worthwhile to set up a list to prevent mile long cc headers for the duration.

Thanks for the correction Chris.

This is a key command that I will use several times a day at work.

I agree with Peter, sleep mode is the best solution but the command is actually NVDA+Shift+s.  Press this key combination when you first get K1000 in focus.  Now when you alt+tab to a different application, NVDA will start speaking   again but will go to sleep eachn time you alt+tab back into K1000.  This will remain whilst K1000 is loaded but if you close K1000 you will have to re-issue the command.  There is a way of setting a profile with sleep mode enabled for K1000 but I haven’t worked out how to do it yet.

because if you move to another window wile Kurzweil 1000 is still running, nvda comes back without haveng to turn speach mode on.

Re: Remove SAPI4 from Windows 10

 

Hello,

Unfortunately, I can't remember when I played with that app, which I suspect is the culprit. I have daily restore points created at noon, but restoring my system to one of them just to remove a minor annoyance seams like an overkill to me.

I've looked through all the services on my system, but I don't see anything related to speech there.

I suspect that if I remove the SAPI4 related keys from the registry, I'll be able to fix the issue. But I don't know where exactly in the registry to look for them. And playing around in the registry without exactly knowing what I'm doing is not a good idea. 😀

So, if I don't find a suitable solution, I'll just leave it as it is.

Best wishes,
Kostadin Kolev

I lost my NVDA settings

Gene
 

I have once again, changed the subject line to something relevant and deleted all the completely irrelevant material from the old thread. 
 
Using the factory settings option doesn't, as far as I know, mean that you lost anything.  Issue the command control N
VDA key r and see what happens.  As far as I know issueing the factory settings command causes NVDA to use factory settings and doesn't change the already saved settings unless you close the program.  If you haven't closed the program, issuing the command NVDA control r will, as I recall, cause the program to use all of your settings again.  If it doesn't, I or someone else will tell you how to set the keyboard to laptop, which is, evidently, what you were using before.

Re: Cutting and pasting from wordpad to word in various modes

Well, I'm just plain awkward, quite obviously. I do not like the wordpad in 7. Its got ribbons I think and defaults to some strange file type. However, I find in word that if you paste in browse mode you get an embedded object in focus mode it will work but clipspeak when active generates a word out of memory error, which is totally spurious as it pastes in any case.

You're using Windows 7, and which version of Office? Are you using the
standard WordPad that comes with Windows or are you saying you've copied
the version out of XP?

I just tried it on Windows 10 using the build it WordPad and Office 2016
and everything worked as it should, but looks like that's a completely
different system to yours. I'll try on my WIndows 7 PC in the morning.

When Word starts, NVDA *should* be in focus mode. If you change to Browse
mode (NVDA+spacebar) then you shouldn't be able to type as it will be
looking for letters as single letter navigation keys to jump to elements.
You can paste text in this mode but you really need to go into focus mode
to manipulate it.

In Word's paste special options, which you can get to with control+alt+v,
you can paste a "Wordpad document object" (after opening the dialog, you
need to press up arrow once then enter - at least in Office 2016). That is
basically an object box - like a picture or a text box or a chart, in your
document. Visually it looks like whatever text you copied out of WordPad,
and when you activate or edit it, a Wordpad window opens with the text
inside.

To edit / activate it, you can double click it with the mouse, There
doesn't seem to be a simple, equivalent keyboard shortcut that I can find,
but if you open the context menu, you can select "Wordpad document object",
then edit.

However if you switch word to focus mode, you can paste it in as normal.
Is this expected or a bug?

Note here that since I have clipspeak involved, when I try to paste in

ignored due to who knows what.
I'd be particularly interested in people with different versions of

Recently I am coming accross check boxes on a web page that are being identified as half checked. Is this some state between unchecked and checked? Seems that when I press the space bar on a half checked checkbox it becomes checked.




Re: Remove SAPI4 from Windows 10

Well my way was to install it for real from an old archive, the uninstall it after that. However I'm sure there will be bits left as there always are.
I still have it. I am just trying to remember which programs put it on there. Certainly the old Via Voice IBM program used it, and what was the one that used Mary in space. I seem to recall, was that Dspeach?

Subject: [nvda] Remove SAPI4 from Windows 10


Hello all,


I'm not sure from where it got in my system, though I have a suspicion that it was through a program that I was testing that has TTS support. But now in the list of synthesizers NVDA shows "Microsoft Speech API version 4". Trying to load it results in an error, probably because that is only the main component installed with no voices. I want to remove it, but I don't know how to do it. I looked in "Programs and Features", but there is no entry there for SAPI4, as far as I can see. Is there another way to remove SAPI4 from my Windows 10 machine?

Thanks much in advance!

Alt F, then arrow to Info and press Enter.  From the field you land on you will down arrow to Add Account.  Good luck the rest of the way.  BTW, I did this in Outlook 2013, and I think it’s the same in 2010.
