Hi, I do have some pro and semi-pro recording gear and a bit of experience.  My voice isn't really studio quality but I would be happy to help the project.  You can hear a sample of my work here:

Hi Quentin,
From the sample, it seems very well written and practically
interactive, which should really help.
Most prominently though, I found the pricing very impartial and
mutually acceptible, as although I may not be able to purchase this
even to support NVDA due to not being a working person myself, but a
friend of mine is trying to learn and figure out using a computer with
NVDA, and my guidance significantly limited due to my own academic
constraints are not sufficient, I am pretty sure he would be willing
to purchase this e-book.
I will forward this announcement release to other platforms too, so
maximum people interested to begin using NVDA even as a transition can
efficiently do so.
Thanks.

Hi Quentin



Before I throw you a curve ball, a bit of background.



I am employed by the Institute for the Blind in Worcester, South Africa. I
am involved in training adult blind persons, mostly from our so-called
“previously disadvantaged” communities. These people, under normal
circumstances receive a state grant of, if I convert it to Australian dollar

at a rate of ten to one, fourteen dollar.



Our institution is usually obliged to write off their study costs. So what I

am driving at, is to ask whether it might be possible to obtain a copy of
the training material at a discount or, at best, free of charge.



I understand that the development of NVDA doesn’t come cheep, and I, as a
blind person myself, genuinely appreciate what is done. To my mind NVDA is
probably the best speech program available. I don’t just say this because it

is the correct thing to do, this is my true opinion.



Please don’t feel that it is your duty to give us the material for free, or

at a discount, I am just enquiring.



Thanks again for everything that you, and whoever else, do to provide the
blind community, world wide, with this brilliant package.



Best wishes for the further development and regards

Re: nvda and react os

Pete <emac00@...>
 

I have the iso images downloaded will let you know when I get some eyes to let me know what's on screen.
There is no mention of screen reading accessibility in it. May be a narrator clone is next. There is a magnifier. I don't know how well it works.

two pluses are react o s can run from live cd or can be installed to

It is open source so free to use like nvda.
The nvda screen reader paired up with a bootable windows like os on a
disk or u s b would come in handy.
Then again react o s would have to be able to run windows setup.
A bootable windows system on a flash or cd rom with speech is
available from the enterprise edition of windows 8.1 and up I think.
It is called windows to go and installs to a u s b drive.
It's really nice of m s to only provide it to businesses and not end

Well it would be good if react os would become accessible.
One thing that is a driving force for me is it will run windows
programs and therefore games and screen readers probably though thats
not the only thing.
With the rise of ms own account system, and later oses such as windows
8x and 10 a lot of things we have taken for granted are on the move or
going out.
The desktop app is on the way out, and while I know those of us that
have embraced cross platform and touch tablets are round and getting
more commenplace there are still those I'd imagine like me that have
never changed.
I for example would still be quite happy with an xp like interface, or
a win7 like interface for windows and office and everything else
without the crazy ribbon system wishfull as it currently is.
And in some way being I came round the time dos was still king I
sometimes want to return to the simple times where your os was just a
basic crappy box where you shoved apps on.
As it is, I have used the desktop so much the cloud and all the online
apps are something I have never been born into and I see no reason bar
the obvious why I would want to change now.
In fact I see no reason from a user standpoint for what I do to even
upgrade from xp though I do like the newer 7 interface.
As an os a windows 10 core is nice but even so I see no need for the
extra features.
At the same time I wouldn't mind staying with a windows like os, as
while yes there is linux I have to deal with windows and windows is
what I grew up mostly with.
Its why I have a simbian cell now and will for some time.
And its probably why I have windows 7 and others in my immediate
family will for the future do also.
Every time I try to get the nerve to upgrade I and my family have
found it harder and harder to upgrade an os.
windows 3x to 95 was a no brainer.
as was 95 to 98 and then from 98 to xp.
But that is where it stuck, I saw no need to go vista.
And if xp hadn't gone out of support I wouldn't have left that.
I am happy I went to 7 though.
However yet again another sticking point, I see no need to ever
upgrade again.
And with my dad retiring at the end of next month, the drive to have
the latest legal office program and latest legal os is greatly
diminished.
Now thats not going to mean I won't upgrade, or that I will pirate the
next windows and office but its going to get just that bit harder to
move on to use something I wouldn't ever need.
Even if its true I would probably be fine with it afterward.
Now if I could buy an os core and use whatever interface I want and
whatever feature set and take bits and bobs of both it wouldn't matter
a dime but I have to take it or leave it and that really starts to put
me in a position especially now my funds will be more reduced.
Its going to become a have to rather than like to.
Or to put it another way, a if it works and I don't loose my data then
I won't.
But like all things react os may never get there.

Hi
I keep checking on the react os project. It is up 04.40 now.
So far in accessibility they came up with a built in magnifier and

I think they need blind computer users to show an interest in it. May
be they will get it accessible.

========================
ReactOS™ Version 0.4.x
Updated January 5, 2016
========================

1. What is ReactOS?
-------------------

ReactOS™ is an Open Source effort to develop a quality operating system
that is
compatible with applications and drivers written for the Microsoft®
Windows™ NT
family of operating systems (NT4, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, Seven).

More information is available at: http://www.reactos.org


2. Relationship with the WINE project
-------------------------------------

ReactOS has always intended to work with the WINE project to share as
much
programming effort as possible. This mainly concerns User Mode DLLs and
still happens to a degree today. Other areas of cooperation lie in
applications and testing suites.


3. Future compatibility
-----------------------

The ReactOS project, although currently focused on Windows Server 2003
compatibility, is always keeping an eye toward compatibility with
Windows Vista and future Windows NT releases.


4. Supporting other System Applications
---------------------------------------

The Windows NT architecture allows for subsystems, as does the ReactOS
architecture. A subsystem is an implementation of the APIs of another
operating system, allowing ReactOS to run applications from other
systems.
We are already looking at subsystems for: Java, OS/2, and DOS and
possibly
others in the future.


5. Tutorials
------------

Developer and User Tutorials: http://www.reactos.org/wiki

The tutorials contain more information on the project, compiling and
testing
ReactOS - amongst other topics. Contributors to the project are always
welcome.


6. Author
---------

This document was written by Jason Filby (jasonfilby@...).

Thanks!

Hi Simon,

The setting is in the general preferences (press NVDA+N then P then ENTER) and it's called "Use currently saved settings on the logon and other secure screens (requires admin privileges)".

Note that you need to have admin privileges and it also only works with an installed copy of NVDA (not a portable copy).

Kind regards

Quentin.

Are you looking for the location itself or how to make it save it. I'd imagine as its a system setting on the current user, it is in that users settings which are not always available for the user to fiddle with depending on if they are an admin or not.
There is a button in the general settings and this will warn you if it thinks there is a possible issue, such as uncertified add ons etc.

Hello One and All
Well done to Quentin for the book and NV-Access in general
I have just bought the book mainly to support the NVDA project.
To all those who do not want to buy it just think how your computer
would be without NVDA.
You would probably have to spend about 500+ GBP
to get some other screen reader so dig deep and buy it!

I've just bought the ebook, but I have two problems:

"Milano" as city, but somehow it turned out to have taken "Agrigento".
How can I rectify this?

Re: books to download from within nvda?

Well, I think this is not a feature for a screen reader, but it can be inplemented as an add-on. Obviously you need a coder interested on it...

Hi Pete

 

I already have a plextalk pocket, and I know you can connect with internet with this device. But I don't use that functionality, as I prefer to have access to my books at any place (with or without internet). So, I read my books offline. I don't read the books from within supernova, I only use the online books for downloading them and after that I move the folders of the books to another location on my disk to back them in in the library. No hassle with unzipping, backing books to the library etc. it is just as simple as downloading a folder, moving it to the sd-card or other place on the disk for giving the books back to the library. I really understand your opinion concerning nvda and the screen reader functionality. It was simply a question, nothing more.

Hi

 

I don't know if this is already possible with nvda or if this is a planned feature. But I have both nvda and Supernova installed on my machine. In supernova you have a books shelf and you can connect with online books services (like Anderslezen.be and Passendlezen.nl from within supernova.  In this way I could download my daisy-books within supernova. Is there a similar function in nvda or is it planned? The handy thing of this way of downloading daisy-books is, that there's no need for unzipping folders. In supernova the sources of online books services are limited, I e.g. only can connect with services from the Netherlands and Belgium.  In the menu there's also a section news, podcasts, … But I can't add podcasts myself as sources I want to follow. And sometimes there are problems with books I want to download that Supernova don't solve within a short time period. That's why I am wondering if nvda has similar functionalities.

 

Thanks for the info.

Hi Simon,

 

The setting is in the general preferences (press NVDA+N then P then ENTER) and it's called "Use currently saved settings on the logon and other secure screens (requires admin privileges)".

 

Note that you need to have admin privileges and it also only works with an installed copy of NVDA (not a portable copy).

 

Kind regards

We haven't got the certification ready yet, so we'll post more details about the exact format later.  For now, what I can say is that if you have a good understanding of most of what is in the Basic Training for NVDA book you will be in good stead for the certification.

Hi Christo,

Great to hear from you and thanks for reaching out.  This is something we'll need to chat further about but I will write to you off list and we'll get some dialog going.

Hi Quentin

 

Before I throw you a curve ball, a bit of background.

 

I am employed by the Institute for the Blind in Worcester, South Africa. I am involved in training adult blind persons, mostly from our so-called “previously disadvantaged” communities. These people, under normal circumstances receive a state grant of, if I convert it to Australian dollar at a rate of ten to one, fourteen dollar.

 

Our institution is usually obliged to write off their study costs. So what I am driving at, is to ask whether it might be possible to obtain a copy of the training material at a discount or, at best, free of charge.

 

I understand that the development of NVDA doesn’t come cheep, and I, as a blind person myself, genuinely appreciate what is done. To my mind NVDA is probably the best speech program available. I don’t just say this because it is the correct thing to do, this is my true opinion.

 

Please don’t feel that it is your duty to give us the material for free, or at a discount, I am just enquiring.

 

Thanks again for everything that you, and whoever else, do to provide the blind community, world wide, with this brilliant package.

 

Best wishes for the further development and regards

Hi Ondrej,

 

A very good question.  It is something that's come up in discussion.  As you note, it is a lot of work to translate and we do very much appreciate the work that you are already doing.

 

The priority to date has been getting the material released electronically initially.  Now that is done we are working to make it available in audio and braille (in English) and also setting up the certification exam.

 

We will definitely look at the question of translation although to start with we don't want to put any extra on your shoulders just yet.

 

Kind regards

Re: Basic Training for NVDA - Official NVDA training material now available!

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Bill,

Re choice of voices, do you mean when going through the material itself?

The initial release of the material is packaged in a handful of etext formats (Word document, ePub, HTML and Mobi - the format Kindle uses), so reading those would be with an artificial voice on whatever device you are using.  We are currently working on an audio version of the material which will definitely be human read.

In terms of going through the material itself, you can use NVDA however you have it set up - if you have NVDA setup with one of the add on voices then by all means use it with that, if you have it newly installed using eSpeak that is fine too.  We deliberately placed the section on navigating the synthesizer dialog very early on so that if you would like to be able to change the voice, you can do that as soon as possible as you work through the material.

In general the activities are setup based on the default setup of NVDA, but particularly when looking at voices and some of the other things many people like to change it does usually note what may be different for you.

Kind regards

Quentin.
