NVDACon 2016: Second day schedule, Project Thunderstorm

 

Hi all,

 

First day of NVDACon was a blast. We had two dozen people at open forum, we heard a demo of Dictation Bridge, and had a chance to talk to F123 Access developers.

 

The second day (April 23rd) is just as interesting as the first:

·         Add-ons party with Joslee: 02:00 UTC (7 PM Pacific on the 22) at Google discussion room.

·         NVDA and employment: 14:00 UTC (7 AM Pacific) at the Accessibility seminar room.

·         Meet Derek’s add-ons: 17:00 UTC (10 AM Pacific) at Google room.

·         Interactive lab on writing NVDA add-ons and getting started with NVDA Core: 23:00 UTC (4 PM Pacific) at Mozilla discussion room (led by Joseph Lee).

Also, we’re doing a quick project called Project Thunderstorm. To find out more on what this project is, come to NVDACon site (TeamTalk server) at 10 AM Pacific (17:00) on April 26, 2016 and again at 7 PM Pacific (02:00 UTC on the 27th).

 

Thanks, and hope to see many of you at NVDACon International 2016 (Tenth Anniversary Edition)/second day.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: remote desktop

Hi:
I use Remote Desktop to connect to my system in the office when I am
working from home.
I use Window-eyes as my default screenreader on both my Windows 10
laptop at work and my Windows 7 laptop at home.
A few weeks ago, I decided to make NVDA the default screen reader on
both systems just to see if I could access my office machine remotely
using NVDA, and the experiment worked, even though I wasn't using the
NVDA Remote Access app.
The only problem I had was that there were some key conflicts between
the two copies of NVDA that were running on the two computers.

Hi all,
I am thinking of getting a VPS or possibly even a dedicated server for
my small business. one of the main ways of connecting to virtual servers
is through remote desktop connection if the server is windows.
My question is, does Microsoft's remote desktop connection work with
NVDA and how well? I want to be able to basically navigate the server as
if I were sat in front of it like normal, is this possible?
Thanks,
Luke

Hi,

What application are you trying it on ?
Object review is usually useful for specific kinds of things, like chat or command-line output, where you have a single object containing lots of text.
Screen review can be more useful for things like dialogs, i.e. more complex structures with some parts that can't be tabved on. It can be completely useless with some applications, where nothing will be found.

Document mode isn't available unless you are in a window that supports it like a web page other HTML documents and a few others. Otherwise, it just doesn't appear.

Hi, Waly,

I'm with you here. You don't just throw away something because you don't
like it. If anything, maybe there might need to be either improvements to
e-speak or another synth to add.

Hi



Let's learn to appreciate what Mike and Jim have put their effort into for
the past 10 years.



Some of us, as poor as we are, can now stand on our two feet because of
nvda.



I acknowledge that we can do something about espeak but not think of
throwing it away.



Let's add and not just subtract.



This other synthesisers are too expensive.



If anyone knows of a synthesiser that's free, let's add it and not kill
espeak.

Re: Accessible Python IDE?e

 

I managed to get it to install. However I noticed that there is no code autocompletion, like in Notepad++. Maybe this feature might exist in Edsharp, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Also, how do I make it portable so I can carry it on my USB?


Re: Accessible Python IDE?e

 

It appears that the EdSharp project is hosted on Github on this page:  https://github.com/EmpowermentZone/EdSharp

Take a look at what you get when you use the "Download ZIP" button.  The exe file for the editor is one of the things in it.

Hello,
There is an email list for the program. Here is the info for the list and where you can get the latest version of the editor.

edsharp@...
. People can check the info, as well as get the newer version at

I use the standard python interpreter, and edSharp, which is just a programmer's text editor.

NVDA voices

Josh Kennedy
 

hi
i changed the subject or maybe made a new thread i don't know i'm on digest mode. anyway and i think this is a legal voice but... you may also try out softvoice. you can get it from well i won't post the link since the mods did not give me permission so until they do you can just email me off list. but it sounds pretty good speaks english and spanish and has a number of different voices.

Re: Accessible Python IDE?e

Greg Wocher
 

Hello,
The best thing for Python is a text editor like EdSharp. None of the dedicated IDE's are all that accessible and portable. I think you can do python with the Eclipse IDE but it is not really portable. You can also do Python with Visual Studio by adding the Python tools extension but its not portable.
