Winamp of course has a mode where it scans for portable music players each time it boots up.

You know what? I'm having the same problem too. I manually put my PC to
sleep at night and when I plug my iPod Touch in to the USB ports and any
key to wake it up and sitting on the desktop it will say Winamp 20 of 21.

Re: Github

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

Are you using the 64 bit version of Firefox. I have stayed with the 32 bit on this machine and things seem to work better, at least for me.

The only slight snag with version 55 of Firefox is now and again usually at launch from a link in, say program with an update link, tends to not find or display the page without forcing a try again. Its worse if started from a new session than the subsequent launches. I wondered if this lag might also be why some multi function buttons tend to misbehave at times on some sites. I've also noticed for example that the file hippo update checker sometimes does not see the list of the programs until you refresh. this seems to not happen in IE.

Easiest way is to go to: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new



Press TAB four times to get to the Browse button and then press spacebar or enter to activate it. It should bring up a standard Windows file open dialog.



Otherwise, the only thing I can think of, is whether you had explorer crashed or busy in the background or something?

I am being asked to attach the actual text file to a new issue rather than simply pasting in the contents of the log file, for instance . The problem is that I cannot get any option to attach a file when I clicked on the “browse” button. It would be a great help if you could explain how to attach a file using NVDA.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Github

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 straight there with https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new <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.

Thanks for this excellent explanation!

I am being asked to attach the actual text file to a new issue rather than simply pasting in the contents of the log file, for instance . The problem is that I cannot get any option to attach a file when I clicked on the “browse” button. It would be a great help if you could explain how to attach a file using NVDA.

All the best,

Cearbhall

Subject: Re: [nvda] Github

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 straight there with https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new <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: 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.

Hello,
are you able to manage combo box in chrome?
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

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.


Antony.

Hi
I just played the preview.
I was hoping it'd sound more human.
It sounds very syntheetic.
Can this be fixed?
Just curious.
Is it free?

Re: [NVDA stopping Outlook 2016

Hi:

It happens to me when I move from one folder to another, but I haven't
experienced it any other time. If I really need to read something
that is in another folder, I close NVDA and open Window-eyes.

Hi Cearbhall,

I am experiencing the stopping of outlook. I did not test with jaws.
However, I have switched to an insider build of Office which has mitigated
the problem to an extent.
