QRead and automatic language switching

Sally Kiebdaj
 

Hello all,


Have any of you using QRead also tried reading a document in multiple languages?


I am testing it out with a textbook that automatically switches between English and German when opened in Adobe. However, it defaults to English entirely when opened in QRead.


Is this something inherent to the program and how it presents documents or is there a setting I need to tweak?


Thank you,

Sally

Yes, I mean exactly what you described, Jean. And it sounds like there might be one activated with control shift l.

So does chrome have a reader at on, rather like what you get with Safari either on a Mac or on the phone? The android version of chrome doesn’t have that, and it’s a huge disadvantage in my opinion. I’m guessing that the desktop version either has it built in or at least has an ad on.

Re: NVDA in the workforce and in public institutions

Quentin Christensen
 

Well, that was basically my question.  If there's something we can do to become a more attractive option to Canadian government departments, then I'd be happy to find out what the requirements may be.  If it's a flat-out no because we are open source, well at least a link clarifying that position would be useful for us to know as well.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Quenton, I'm sure the NVAccess group has the resources and knowhow to become a contractor for the Canadian Government.  It's not usually that hard, though there may be substantial red tape.  I don't believe you would have to present any kind of insurance documentation to sell them software, though you would probably have to wave liability if you were coming in to do training or something.  Insurance is for contractors hired to build new ficilities, install new plumming, electrical, or fire, maintain government vehicals and so on.

I've lost track of what the insurance comment was in this thread.

Please can someone point me at some official documentation to explain what the vendors have to comply with to get government contracts?

I'd be interested to know how the Canadian government manages to use any open source software if they have rules in place which would be a problem for NVDA specifically.

Re: Spellchecker Microsoft office word 2017

Quentin Christensen
 

Ok Steve,

Just for you, try pressing alt+F7 to jump between spelling errors and open the context menu with alternate suggestions.  You might like that idea since, being a Word command, you can do it in Jaws or Window-Eyes as well as NVDA :-P

If you don't want the menu open, press alt to close it again.

Quentin.

You can also jump to next spelling error using NVDA by:

- Pressing NVDA+spacebar to go into Browse mode.

- Press w to move to the next spelling error or shift+w to move to the previous spelling error.

 

Note that you'll need to go back to focus mode with NVDA+spacebar to edit text again.

 

Kind regards

Hi,

 

By default, MS word will highlight spelling errors automatically as you move through a document, making it unnecessary to activate the spell checker to proof a document.

I am told that sighted people see these misspelled words as underlined words, and I suppose this is what NVDA is detecting such that it can identify them for us.

Therefore, as I see it, you can move to the misspelled word in context, press the Applications key, and move through the pull-down menu and review the replacement possibilities, and one of the elements in the pull-down is the highlighted misspelled word itself for your convenience.

You can then make your choice and press Enter.

 

I hope this helps,

Hello, everyone. I wrote about this earlier. I have learned more. Zoom is perfectly accessible with JAWS 16. However, with NVDA, it is not completely so. For example, when you press alt+a to mute or un-mute audio, JAWS announces the fact that audio is either muted or un-muted, but, NVDA says nothing.

 

In edit fields, JAWS can easily review them by using arrow keys, it announces what characters you arrow to or over. With     NVDA, review of text in edit fields is not easy to do. It does not announce what character you are on when you arrow to or over characters.

 

These are issues that I believe should be seriously looked into and fixed. This is a program used in work environments, and should be used in more places due to accessibility of the product. Right now, I have to use JAWS 16 to get full access. This should not be so. I hope this one can be rectified soon.

 

p.s. I think that the issues, or some of them, might be related to ARIA. If I can help in any way to get this working, I will. Let me know how I can help.

Re: NVDA speaking even when it’s not loaded when there’s a problem with shut down

That's odd cause I use IMAP for both my ISP email and Gmail and I do get notified.

True but imap on tbird doesn't give me notifications of mail completing.

And it never used to screw at all which is my issue.

Its fine now for example, but as soon as something weird goes with google things go down again.

The other reason I can't be bothered as for now I have only 1 device so I don't give a damn.

Now if I get a smart phone which may happen in the next 10 years or so, then I will want a chain if I need it so it will be like that I guess.

You’re going nuts with switching from imap to pop, or something. Probably why everything is going screwy on you to begin with lol.
I just use windows 10 mail, imap only. It simply works with gmail. No screwing around with silly settings – I thought pop was back in 2000 and didn’t even know anyone still used it.

Yeah I have a similar issue with mail in general.

Imap and pop fail, every so often, the local google node flakes and goes
offline, I switch to another for a bit then it pops back.

Then imap and pop fail.

Imap just comes back, but I have to switch to imap, wait 30 mins and
switch the pop devices back to pop, I have some spacifficly linked
devices I don't want active and sharing all the time namely my admin box
though if it happens again, I'm going to have to figure out why
notifications don't work in thunderbird with imap active and stick with it.

I always know when it will do it because the local google web site goes
offline 3 or 4 days later the servers die and nothing comes through till
I fiddle about.

So as much as google thinks its the big cloud, I suspect overloading
however small is going on.

Not if when it was installed in the first place use on the log in
screen was put on, anas this is always loaded even if you do not
decide to load nvda at start up. Its a special kind of cut down

When the Windows log-in and lock screen come into play, a Different

Unless you specifically copy a modified profile across for system

I have this new machine and it has NVDA on it. But in Vda does not
load at start up. We are having some problems with the machine, and
my husband thought he had narrowed it down to stuff screwing up when
you restart rather than shutting down the machine. Anyway, with NVDA
not loaded when the machine is shutting down, occasionally will hang
up and e speak will start talking. That is not the synthesizer I
have selected. But it does talk. And it is happened on a few
occasions. When he took it back to the store to let the tech look at
it, it did that once, and now the tech is blaming the whole thing on
NVDA. I’m sure that’s not correct, but I don’t know what to tell them.

Its got accessibility features and its fully configurable, maybe ms should take a leaf out of google's book for their stuff because headings for everything.

The only issues I have is when removing addon extentions I have to hit enter twice as there is a lot of unknown and the same with adding extentions tab once and hit enter.

overview of Braille Me.

About Braille Me -

Ever Since Louis Braille invented the wonderful script of Braille,
it has been adopted all across the globe empowering millions of
individuals. Today, after 200 years we are on the verge of a
revolution in Braille. Braille Me, is built to bring digital braille
to everyone immaterial of their geographical, economic or lingual
background.
It has a six-dot 20-cell braille display, a Perkins-style keypad,
cursor routing buttons and few navigation keys. It has capabilities
to work as a stand-alone editor and also connect to smartphones and
computers via Bluetooth and USB. It is a balanced device with core
features of a complex notetaker while having the simplicity of a braille
display.
Braille Me has become possible due to two breakthroughs in
Affordability and multi-language. Braille Me is designed with our
patented Braille cell technology which makes the device
cost-effective by an order of magnitude compared to existing
products and supports more than 40 languages spanning all across the
globe.

Download sound is fine but I just find the addon's download sound a bit to loud and can't change that.

I have pulled back to 56.02 for now as I just don't have the time to bother with web brousers just now.

Then again 57 seemed to load faster.

Noscript is the big show stopper, I like controling sites I load.

If its in google chrome I may try it and see.

Re: braille me affordable braille display

 

Here, here to the 40-cell display. Twenty is barely enough to do serious reading. That's what I would use it for. Mobile is the future, this I know. However, the more Braille cells on a display, the better. I'm thinking 32 or 40 would be nice.

Hi,

Y'all will recall that BrailleMe came to the NVDA community for assistance
in putting together a display driver last year. 

Earlier this year, late spring or perhaps very early summer, I got to see an
early prototype of BraillMe, and it showed a lot of promise. There were afew
rough edges, which I hope have been addressed in the final production
version.

At $50 less than Orbit Reader 20, there are a couple things I'll observe.
First, the early prototype was a bit noisy, especially as the cursor
blinked. Also, sometimes a cell wouldn't populate correctly if you had your
finger on it. I hope these shortcomings got addressed. Also, this says it's
a six-dot cell, not eight. This might be an issue for some, although I must
say I never used those extra dots myself. On the plus side, display refresh
is instantaneous, and there are cursor routing buttons for each cell, a
feature the Orbit lacks. So if they really do release on 4th January, we
could well have a winner here.
