Re: Information regarding Translating application.

You know, Microsoft Word actually does a good job with translating text. You just have to have the proper language packs installed and configured. I've done this with English/Spanish and my wife with English/German from time to time.
I haven't' had the need to work with languages such as Hindi or Urdu. Nor do I have the knowledge to tell how accurate they may be if translated, but why don't you give them a try if those language packs are available.

Thanks Anthony.


I actually have KNFB for Android on my smartphone, and am all but happy with it. Everybody praises it on IOS, but I'm very disappointed. I might try the Windows10 version, if, and only if, it's really free.


I might contact them.

Thanks, ciao,

Free & Good OCR Software for Image Scanned PDFs

 

The question of OCR scanning Image Scanned PDFs that one knows contain text comes up again and again.  If you don't want to invest some huge amount of money in a fully dedicated specialty OCR suite there is an excellent option available for free from Tracker Software:  PDF-XChange Viewer.

This software is not 100% accessible, but what you need to perform an OCR scan on an Image Scanned PDF is.

You have nothing to lose but a few minutes time to test out either PDF-XChange Viewer (which uses the "old Windows interface style" and I know to be accessible for running OCR) or the free edition of PDF-XChange Editor to check out whether it suits your needs.  I personally prefer PDF-XChange Viewer.  Here are the step-by-step instructions I wrote for a client who was a grad student who kept having old image scanned PDFs assigned for reading by various professors on how to OCR process them using PDF-XChange Viewer:

Used when you receive a PDF that was scanned without Optical Character Recognition.  For reading stick to Adobe Reader or other reader of your choice as PDF-XChange Viewer is not 100% accessible.

1.     Open PDF-XChange Viewer from your start menu or the desktop.

2.     ALT+F, O  Open a file, you’ll need to know where it is and navigate there in the Open Dialog, which is very much like Windows Explorer.

3.     CTRL+SHIFT+C  Perform optical character recognition on the file.  This will be quick for small files, 20 pages or less, but will take some time for very large files, hundreds of pages.  Listen for the process to complete.

4.     ALT+F, S  Save the file over itself with the OCR text now included.  If you wish to save the file under a different name and keep the original use ALT+F, A Save As to do this instead.

OK I give up, Github settings

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

Somebody helpfully posted here a while ago some instructions on how to get githubs issue tracker to send out emails to the person who is sending either the originating post or and subsequent comments by them. I went to the place after logging in and set it to send me emails. its still not doing it on my account.
I go back in and cannot see what I set the last time.
I'd imagine if the system could be set so anyone who posts by email or puts in a comment on the site, who has an account for the list should automatically get the comment sent back as part of the list. That would seem common sense to me, but its not happening, so at the moment, after some months, maybe I accidentally find a comment to me saying can you tell us this or that. I post that via emai, but I've no idea if its actually on the site till I log in and go through the emails and posts.
If it came back in the list as it does here, I'd be more happy that I have actually done what was asked.
Anyone?

No not really, as they are by definition emulating a display form in graphics that looks like the old computer its emulating I know this is true as I was involved in one for the Spectrum some years ago, and no screenreader could see the graphic or text as both were merely pictures.
Now if we are talking games like adventures that were textual I have heard there are ways to make some of these work with a screenreader as they can be use in a kind of simulated dos mode. Don't ask me how though, as they are not of interest to me.

Well Firefox has been added to the firestick, but I believe Amazon has agreed to sell chrome based devices now, so where is the problem. I'm suspicious that Amazons system may well hijack Googles data collection so their devices won't let google earn money.
Its all awfully silly and counter productive for all parties.
The only certain thing in the future is that broadband prices or subscriptions to paid services will go up as the people who own the internet need to be able to have an income to create more capacity and bandwidth and renew old stuff. One way or the other somebody has to pay.

It does.

I have switched all my users to skype universal to keep the software
updated but to be honest skype classic is in the tablets section so
unless ms decides that windows tablets need to update to universal to
which they will probably do eventually then maybe.

At any rate even if skype does die, they will have to change the
minimal version on server to have it not even work and they only just
did that last year and that was for 7.2 and older, up to this point
you could probably still work with 6 or 5 or 4 or even 3 maybe not 2
but even so, who knows.

This new skype 8 will last till the end of win 8x at any rate.

It would be good if ms let us blinks use our own windows desktops,
shells and interfaces for their cores so we could use their stuff
without their junk.

Hi,
Skype universal app does have shortcut keys, such as Alt+1 to go to
conversations, Alt+2 for contacts, Alt+3 for bots and so on).
Cheers,
Joseph

That's such a slugish and obnoxious way to navigate a programme,
really. Come on Microsoft.

In the new Windows app thing? Sure. In fact I think it's the only way
to use it really.

Can you still tab around Skype like normal, though? I'm curious,
because I've never really used keyboard shortcuts. Just menus and
tabbing between options.

Awesome. It's gone. Thanks. I'll go install the classic version

OK, I didn't think it worked that way for universal apps.

I'll give it a try.

The same way you uninstall any program:

Press your Windows key and type remove  Arrow down to "Add
and
Remove Programs and press Enter  Arrow down to Skype in the
list of programs  Press your applications key and arrow
down to
remove and press Enter    On 1/6/2018 7:38 PM,

uninstall the
universal version within Windows 10. I guess Google's to the
rescue. LOL!

Yes, installer downloaded from both links works with

Skype forces to use Universal app only in 8.x. I could
install
7.x (version downloadable from the two links sent) in Win10
without problems some weeks ago.

Wow! Thank you for this link. Will this work with
Windows 10
as well? I'm not much a fan of the Universal app version of
Skype.
Don't get me wrong. It's O... Kayyyy, but, I definitely
don't
prefer it.
Â
Â
I don't have all the issue with Skype that a lot of people
seem to have, in fact, I personally enjoy using it, so if I
can get that Universal version uninstalled in Windows 10,
and
get rid of the classic version, that would be fantastic!

Rich,

Remove your current skype installation and install the
skype
classic version from this link: If you do not remove the
old
installation, you will get two skype
versions after installation of the classic version.

I've never had it force an update on
windows 7. it always asks to which I say politely no thanks.
  I'm not sure how one gets the old version.
However there does seem to have been
a long history with Skype mucking it up on every update they do. I
hardly ever use it these days personally, but for many years the
tendency to hi jack the audio settings and not put them back
afterwards seemed rather draconian to me.

Subject: [nvda] New Skype Installation a Complete
Disaster!
Â
Â
I have used NVDA successfully with Skype for many years.
Suddenly, tonight, on my Windows 7 laptop, when I entered
Skype, a new version was forcibly installed, something
like
Version 8.1.2, and it presented me with an interface
that I
could not comprehend with NVDA. None of the shortcut keys
that I previously used would work. I received a call
from a
friend right after this forced installation and could not
answer it, because the usual alt-PageUp key combo for
answering a call was useless, as were all other previous
shortcut keys. What is the solution to this problem. I
totally uninstalled Skype for now. Do we give up on Skype
as NVDA
users, or install a different version or perhaps some other chat
program?

Hi,
I'm Daniele from Italy.

I need a new add-on for NVDA to make my job accessible. I'm not a programmer and I don't know how to do.

I've tried to send an email to the man NVDA website, but I didn't receive answer.

Do you know somebody offering this kind of service?

Thank you very much.
