I agree. Trying to trouble shoot things regardless of what screen reader on any version of WIN is the NO.1 priority. The number one song ahem suggestion as of late here and on the WIN 10 year has been call the MS disability help desk. It seems like that’s the first thing as of late that gets spouted off the mouth. This is my chief complaint. Its getting old. That’s why their lists like this. Somebody is bound to know the answers to XYZZ question. Help desk or taking PC or laptop in to a local shop should be a last resort.

Perhaps, but a fundamental question as barely been discussed, if at all.  NVDA is free.  Does that mean services related to it should be free and to what extent?  If you are going to expect someone to do something like a job, that is, sit around and wait for calls a certain number of hours a day, some people might be willing to do that.  That doesn't mean that it is reasonable to assume that enough people will be willing to do so to build a corps of enough people around the world.  Knowing how to teach and troubleshoot well are valuable skills and, depending on the problems presented, the solutions or what is taught may take time and effort.  Why would peoples' skills and knowledge be assumed to be available for free?  That devalues both.  I enjoy writing instructions and helping with problems on an e-mail list where I control what I write and how often and when I look at list mail when I want.  Sitting Waiting for a phone to ring, being at the call of anyone who decides to call at any time for a number of hours a day,  is a lot more like work, at least to me.

    Why don't we use trained volunteers who would have to pass a

People who are advanced users of nvda could be people who could do this.
This would give blind people who don't have anything to do somthing to do.

I doubt the site matters.  the message said the status is installed and it doesn't say running.  I think that is the indicator of the problem, not the specific site.

Also it seems that Audible now belongs to Amazon, so one supposes things might change there as well.

Hello List. I have a friend who was a long time Window-Eyes user, but he is now using NVDA due to Window-Eyes no longer being developed. There is an application he used called Audible download manager, and some of it works fine with NVDA, but he has a problem where while he is downloading a book, NVDA reads the folder path where the book is being downloaded. With Window-Eyes, however, it would tell him, "downloading, followed by the name of the book. Is there anyways for this to be corrected in a future version of NVDA?

Hi

 

for most people it would be a international call.

 

Unless they are using voip. the ones they sell at the telecommunications companies along with your line are not so bad these days if you have to do it.

 

Over here if i use say net phone or some thing like that i can call to a aussie phone number for 10 cents for the whole call or was it 12 cents. I use 2 companies like them for rates far cheaper than the telecommunication companies.

 

I have also helped people through skype if they have it or over the phone here in new zealand. I get free land line national calls for up to 1 hour for nothing.

 

then as long as i hang up i can call again for free..

Re: Advanced VLC.

Oh yes, sorry, I missed one. The context key does nothing, i.e. right clicking or shift-f10. I think I mentioned that in my original email.


Re: Advanced VLC.

John Isige
 

Pressing right arrow takes me to the next control, a checkbox concerning using subtitles. Pressing NVDA-enter or space, though I'm using the caps lock, doesn't help. NVDA-space does nothing, and NVDA-enter plays files, just like normal enter. Alt-p, which VLC is also giving as a way to access the control, weirdly also does nothing.

Hey all. I was trying to use VLC to combine some video, based on this
article.


https://videoconverter.wondershare.com/vlc/how-to-use-vlc-as-a-video-editor.html


Here's the relevant quote:


"The feature of merging multiple videos together in VLC is so useful
that it can create a totally new single video. But note that only videos
in same video format can be merged together in VLC.
Step 1
Launch VLC media player and click on “Media” menu, select “Open Multiple
Files” from the drop-down menu.
open multiple file
Step 2
Click on “Add” button under the “File” tab, add the files according to
the sequence you want to play after merging.
add video to vlc
Step 3
Now, Go the Play button and click on "Convert" from the drop-down menu.
Then it will ask you to set the location for saving files location, you
can save merged file anywhere you want on computer. "


I can do step two just fine. When I get to step three, the play button
says it's a sub menu, and tells me to hit enter, but hitting enter,
space, and routing with NVDA-numpad slash and left clicking with numpad
slash all start playing one of the videos in the list. Right clicking
does nothing. Anybody know how to access stuff like this? There's also
an edit field that shows up as some sort of menu or such if you try to
convert a DVD, for entering a file name to save to. I assume that's the
same sort of thing. If anybody has a way to access that kind of stuff,
I'd surely appreciate it.




Hi,


Firstly, I would think that a sub-menu would mean that you probably press right arrow to go into the sub-menu.


Secondly, if you use the context menu is there a play item in the context menu?

Hey John.

 

I haven't done exactly as you described, but I used some of these steps to merge audio files into a video. The original video track was in Italian, and there was an alternate english track in a separate mp3 file. I didn’t' want to be bothered putting the subtitles onto a braille display so I could read them. Unfortunately, I can't exactly describe how I got this to work. VLC is a very powerful programme and my go-to for all video playback, but some of its features are not totally accessible -- as in, you can use them, but there's very little or no feedback at all. I do know I got this to work, but in the end I think I asked my girlfriend to help out with her eyes. I do remember being left with the impression that if I were a litle more patient about starting our movie that night, it could have been done without sighted assistance. Maybe I can play with this some more and get back to you. Don't give up hope. I'll also read that article you linked above as I'd really like to take advantage of more of VLC's features, myself.

Hey all. I was trying to use VLC to combine some video, based on this article.

 

 

https://videoconverter.wondershare.com/vlc/how-to-use-vlc-as-a-video-editor.html

 

 

Here's the relevant quote:

 

 

"The feature of merging multiple videos together in VLC is so useful that it can create a totally new single video. But note that only videos in same video format can be merged together in VLC.

Step 1

Launch VLC media player and click on “Media” menu, select “Open Multiple Files” from the drop-down menu.

open multiple file

Step 2

Click on “Add” button under the “File” tab, add the files according to the sequence you want to play after merging.

add video to vlc

Step 3

Now, Go the Play button and click on "Convert" from the drop-down menu.

Then it will ask you to set the location for saving files location, you can save merged file anywhere you want on computer. "

 

 

I can do step two just fine. When I get to step three, the play button says it's a sub menu, and tells me to hit enter, but hitting enter, space, and routing with NVDA-numpad slash and left clicking with numpad slash all start playing one of the videos in the list. Right clicking does nothing. Anybody know how to access stuff like this? There's also an edit field that shows up as some sort of menu or such if you try to convert a DVD, for entering a file name to save to. I assume that's the same sort of thing. If anybody has a way to access that kind of stuff, I'd surely appreciate it.

Hey John.

I haven't done exactly as you described, but I used some of these steps to merge audio files into a video. The original video track was in Italian, and there was an alternate english track in a separate mp3 file. I didn’t' want to be bothered putting the subtitles onto a braille display so I could read them. Unfortunately, I can't exactly describe how I got this to work. VLC is a very powerful programme and my go-to for all video playback, but some of its features are not totally accessible -- as in, you can use them, but there's very little or no feedback at all. I do know I got this to work, but in the end I think I asked my girlfriend to help out with her eyes. I do remember being left with the impression that if I were a litle more patient about starting our movie that night, it could have been done without sighted assistance. Maybe I can play with this some more and get back to you. Don't give up hope. I'll also read that article you linked above as I'd really like to take advantage of more of VLC's features, myself.
