Re: windows 10 fall creaters update coming out today

Gene
 

First, are those having problems using a USB microphone or a microphone you plug into a standard jack?  If the microphone is USB, I don't think the suggestion in the message below would apply because as I understand the way USB audio devices work, a USB microphone will be the default device when it is plugged in.  As far as using a microphone that uses a standard jack is concerned, I have no idea if making the microphone the ddefault recording device would cause the feature to work.

Hi

It may well be that the microphone is not defined as your default recording device.  Try the following:

1 Press the windows key to open the Cortana search box and type in ‘sound card’ (without the quotes.

2. From the list of suggestions press enter on ‘Change sound card settings, control panel’

3. In the dialog that opens, press Control+tab to move to the Recording tab

4. Press down arrow to microphone in the list control

5. Tab down to properties and press enter

6. Tab to ‘Device  Usage Use this device’ and ensure it is enabled.

7 Tab to OK and press enter, then tab to OK again on the previous dialog box

 

 

Cheers

Yes you have to have a microphone if one is not built in. They are more common in new laptops. Dont know of any PC's that have them built in.

If you press:

I am dictating this email right now.

Hi all!

I got the Fall Creators 1709 of win10 yesterday in my updates.

It downloaded and installed without a hitch. It took 90 minutes to download, but it took two hours to install. It got stuck at 70 percent for an hour, but I just waited patiently, and it finished.

Wow, I am using NVDA version

Version: master-14532,58e1946e

And it is so snappy in Edge, that I can’t believe it. NVDA is working better in this 1709, than it ever has. I just want everyone to know that NVDA is so snappy as well in file explorer. It is much snappier when I arrow through ffiles and folders in different areas of file explorer. The Mail app is working great with NVDA.

Narrator, is very snappy with MS Mark. I used Narrator in Edge, and it works well.

When you get 1709, you will love how well NVDA works with it.

Hi all!
I got the Fall Creators 1709 of win10 yesterday in my updates.
It downloaded and installed without a hitch. It took 90 minutes to download, but it took two hours to install. It got stuck at 70 percent for an hour, but I just waited patiently, and it finished.
Wow, I am using NVDA version
Version: master-14532,58e1946e
And it is so snappy in Edge, that I can’t believe it. NVDA is working better in this 1709, than it ever has. I just want everyone to know that NVDA is so snappy as well in file explorer. It is much snappier when I arrow through ffiles and folders in different areas of file explorer. The Mail app is working great with NVDA.
Narrator, is very snappy with MS Mark. I used Narrator in Edge, and it works well.

Re: kindle and nvda

Gene
 

Do you know how to send completely new messages to the list?  You sent your message in a completely unrelated thread, you left the subject line the same, and you left all the unrelated messages below yours. 
If you do that, you make it much less likely that those you want to reach will read the message.  Many people decide which messages to read by reading the subject lines.  Such people won't even know you sent a message on a different subject.

On my PC's at least if there isnt a microphone Cortana's voice features are disabled until I plug one in. Makes sense now that PCs are smart enough to know when things are plugged into the soundcard.

It is much snappier when I arrow through ffiles and folders in different areas of file explorer. The Mail app is working great with NVDA.

Hi all!

I got the Fall Creators 1709 of win10 yesterday in my updates.

It downloaded and installed without a hitch. It took 90 minutes to download, but it took two hours to install. It got stuck at 70 percent for an hour, but I just waited patiently, and it finished.

Wow, I am using NVDA version

Version: master-14532,58e1946e

And it is so snappy in Edge, that I can’t believe it. NVDA is working better in this 1709, than it ever has. I just want everyone to know that NVDA is so snappy as well in file explorer. It is much snappier when I arrow through ffiles and folders in different areas of file explorer. The Mail app is working great with NVDA.

Narrator, is very snappy with MS Mark. I used Narrator in Edge, and it works well.

When you get 1709, you will love how well NVDA works with it.

Well I got it on my i5 quad gen4 which I updated bios last month and my

i5 duel hp 7th gen this morning though the first one had 2 cu updates

after that but the desktop one worked as expected.

 

I did have adobe flash, java and google updates to contend with but

nothing else.

Re: where does NVDA support OS system API MSAA

 

Hi,
In short, accessibility API's are a way for programs and screen readers to cooperate and communicate accurate info about controls, what's happening and what not. In case of Microsoft Active Accessibility or IAccessible, it usually refers to exposing correct info about a control for screen readers and raising appropriate events. By default, NVDA will not automatically announce when something happens on screen unless NVDA is told to keep an eye on events that programs raise.
Regarding the program in question: I advise contacting NV Access and see if they can take a look at it for a fee, or if a free version or a demo can be downloaded, let one of us take a look at it and provide recommendations (unfortunately, due to various commitments, I won't be able to do that at this time).
Cheers,
joseph

Shouldn't it just work? It's using MSAA and NVDA supports that. I thought the whole point of MSAA is that things get exposed to screen readers. I have no idea what the Zoom meeting thingy is so I can't really help beyond that, but my understanding was that MSAA just exposes things to screen readers and such. But yeah, the dev list would probably be a better place for this, unless somebody from there participates here and can tackle it.

I ask this question because I'm wondering what it would take for NVDA
to work with the zoom meeting platform, and receive notifications
from it, as other screen readers do.

The information I was able to get from zoom is the following, and
will hopefully be of help for anyone who could take advantage of this
info...


"Zoom client in Windows uses OS system API MSAA to support screen
reader. The SPEC is described here:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd317990(v=v
s.85).aspx In particular details, Zoom client calls the MSAA API
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd373603(v=v
s.85).aspx to notify system to inform the screen reader to speak."
Thanks!

can't get the dictation sound

Rosemarie Chavarria
 

Hi, everyone,

 

I wanted to try to dictate a message but when I hit windows H, I didn't get the dictation sound. I just got the new fall creators update and would like to try dictating messages. How do I get the sound?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi, David,

 

I just got it but I can't get it to dictate. Do I have to have a microphone?

Wow, Rosemarie!

If you press:

Windows+H, you hear a sound, and you can start dictating. When you stop, you hear a different sound, and you can read what you dictated.

I am dictating this email right now.

I am just talking out loud, after I pressed that command.

Well, let us see how well this dictation did!

This is a great feature of 1709!
