Re: google chrome and combo box

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

combo boxes work if you're in browse mode, though sometimes, (depending on what other javascript code is on thepage), you don't get a chance to see the option, as it automatically reloads the page as soon as the combo box is changed, then you need to enter browse mode and down/up arrow again to get another option_), but otherwise, combo boxes work just fine, I use them regularly in chrome with very little difficulty.

Especially dinamic combo box are simply impossible to use because the alt-down arrow keystroke that in other browsers open and block the combo box, in chrome has no effect.
Do you have some solutions about this?




Re: Finally, Lyrebird continues to work

Antony Stone
 

I personally find the licence agreement on their website quite unpleasant.

For example: "We hereby grant to you a royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-
transferable, personal use, trial evaluation license to use the Services to
record Your Voice, create your own Digital Voice and create Digital Voice
Messages solely for the purpose of evaluating the functionality of the
Services."

"you hereby grant to us a fully paid, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable,
worldwide, non-exclusive and fully sublicensable right and licence to use,
license, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform, and publicly
display Your Voice, Digital Voice, Digital Voice Messages, Demo Voice Messages
and any other materials that you create, upload, submit, post or otherwise
make available on the Services"

So, by all means play with their system if you're happy with terms like this,
but don't just go ahead and assume that your voice is copyright to you -
upload samples to Lyrebird and they can use your voice for whatever they like.

Hi

Hi Adriano, the error sound is usually only played in the snapshot builds - Next and Master builds.  If you are using NVDA 2017.3 you shouldn't hear them.

Note that NVDA 2017.4 won't support XP anymore.  Once we discovered this with a recent snapshot build, we built in a check which warns you and automatically offers to install 2017.3 (the stable version).  If you were running off a Next or Master build and updated to one of these newer versions then followed the prompts to move to 2017.3, you won't be on the next or master branch anymore and hence won't hear those sounds.  Brian can likely reccomend the exact last builds you can use, but we'd officially recommend just staying on 2017.3 from now on XP.

You have to install the additional text to speech components after you have installed the language

If you go to your installed language packs and select the one to add the text to speech components and click modify I think it is you shall see a list of additional components to install  and text to speech should be there to install from there

 

 

 


Re: nvda and web surfing

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

I seem to remember yesterday while looking through the issues in the git hub mail list that alerts with no text in Chrome were mentioned.
I'd imagine though that unless it actually locks you out then its OK to carry on. Normally if it really was a danger it would stop you from doing anything until you responded.
It can be stuff like page certificate missmatch, part of the page is https and part of it not, often on pages with adverts inserted from an insecure address or something. There are a lot of possibilities. I have not used Chrome since I found it very hard to get used to, not because its bad.

Hi all,
I see that a lot of NVDA users seem interested in helping out with
testing NVDA, sharing feedback, reporting bugs, etc. As an active
triager on the NVDA Github issue tracker (along with some other NVDA
community members), we try to make sure that all tickets are
systematic and well-defined, so that developers have sufficient
diagnostic information or compelling use cases ensuring that the
accepted suggestions are easy better understood and consequently
simpler to implement. Therefore, I fortunately have notable experience
in the past month or so with the issue filing side of Github,
knowledge that I would definitely be interested in passing on. I am
considering writing a comprehensive multi-part guide about filing
issues about NVDA on the Github tracker and other less emphasized and
unmentioned essentials you may want to keep in mind while doing the
same in the form of a blog post on my personal blog (Hiking Across
Horizons - bhavyashah125.wordpress.com). Unfortunately, I will not be
able to get to this blog post idea till the 27th September at least
due to upcoming academic commitments, so please expect to hear from me
in this regard post that date, hopefully. Just thought I'd give a
heads-up.

As mentioned, if you want to create a ticket, submit an issue or
generally

report something that isn't working / could work better / should be
implemented etc, what you want to do is create a new issue. The link to
the issues section is https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues
<https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues>

Unless you are writing code yourself, you can mostly ignore the other
sections (code, pull requests, projects, etc).

Ideally, it's worth jumping to the SECOND edit box on that page to
search

for the issue you want to report. (the first one searches code and
other

things, you want to search issues). So, if someone reported a problem
with footnotes in Word 2016 for instance, I'd search for "word 2016
footnotes" or similar in that second edit box. There are two types of
issues, open and closed. Open issues are either new issues that haven't
been triaged yet (that is, no one has looked at them to see how serious
they are, whether the issue has already been reported etc), or issues
which are being worked on, or waiting to be worked on. Closed issues
are

issues which have either been fixed, or which are duplicates of other
issues, or sometimes things which can't or won't be fixed. If the
problem

with footnotes is that you want them to appear at the top of the page
for

instance, then that isn't something related to NVDA. That's a feature
request for Word itself and you'd need to submit that to Microsoft.

To create a new issue, there is a "new issue" button, you can jump

<https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new>

When you create a new issue, there is a block of text in the "comment"
prompting you for the kinds of information that are useful in diagnosing
the issue. Please try and include: steps to reproduce the issue, attach
any files which might help (eg if Word crashes every time you try and
check formatting in this particular file, if you can share it, that
would

help), what should happen and what actually happens, and your system
configuration (Windows version, application version, NVDA version and
whether installed or portable), and anything you've done to try and
resolve or get more information (eg tried different version of NVDA or
other program). Don't stress if you don't have every piece of that
information or if you aren't sure if the issue has been filed before.
When someone goes to triage the issue, they will ask for more
information

if needed. If the issue has been filed previously, they will link to it
(and likely close the duplicate issue you created).

If you do have any more questions, please feel free to ask.

Kind regards

Quentin.

I just looked at the Github NVDA part of the site. I haven't signed up
yet but it looks easy to do so and to create a pull request, which I
assume is what is generally referred to on this list as a ticket. But
many people may find the page confusing. Is there a way that some sort
of

short help information can be inserted after the navigation links on the
page, instructing people what to do to create what are called tickets,
perhaps also how to search for tickets and how to create an account? If
tickets are desired from the widest variety of users, this process
should

be somehow explained and done so in a place that those wishing to create
tickets will be likely to see the explanation.

Re: Nvda 2017.3, errorwave you do not hear

It may well be that the release candidate still had the error bleep on, but don't know. See my earlier message about the snaps to use if you want it back.
I have argued before that it would be nice to have a user setting to turn on the error bleeps, perhaps associated with the debug log setting so that devs could help troubleshoot problems people encounter.

However since the XP version is now a dead project, its not going to help in that case.

Hi,

I just upgraded this version into XP machine, I noticed that no longer feels the sound error when happens.
All other sounds work correctly.
What can I do?
Thanks

Cheers
Adriano



Re: New NVDA sounds

Ah, but in speech its done so you can be aware of delays. On the display its only when its finished loading. I often find that some machines are not really ready for humans even after this however, as often the start up items are still jostling for processor time and the machine tends to ignor you
Perhaps something that tells us when the pointer is not a pointer or the edit graphic would he nice.
Do they still use the hourglass when its all a bit busy?

Good explanation. I actually liked the new ones. Only thing I wish would
slightly is the startup message when speech is on. Loading NVDA. Please
wait. I prefer to hear what you see on a Braille display. NVDA started.
Short and sweet.
