Re: Issue installing latest Windows 10 update

 

Hi,

You’re welcome anytime. Just in case you do manage to fix this, do let folks know.

As for the tutorial: we’re at home stretch, and if things go as planned, all parts will be packaged into a zip file in February. Speaking of tutorial packaging: expect changes in one or more segments between now and February.

Cheers,

Joseph

Subject: [nvda] Issue installing latest Windows 10 update

 

Repeatedly, I have tried doing the most recent Windows 10 update. Get to the step where the installer asks me to uninstall this program as it cannot. The program at fault is, Window eyes 9.1. It is not listed as an installed program in Programs and Features, “add or remove”. I have searched the entire computer for Window Eyes and GW Micro remains and find nothing.

Is it possible that the installer is finding a remaining entry in the registry?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated,

Re: Keyboard Shortcuts List

 

Hi,

I’ll take care of that. Which edition do you need: latest release, latest public beta, latest alpha, or latest really unstable build? I can do one of these because I have all of them on my computer. It’s a matter of choosing which one you need and uploading to my website.

Cheers,

Joseph

I checked out Windows Narrator and heard your problem on my own sample writing. The only thing I can think of is to code it as HTML. There should be a way to pause with HTML since they have timed forms and such. Just code it to pause for 1 second. I say that without knowing HTML, sorry.

 

A different approach is to see if you can insert a sound. If the screen reader reached the end of the line and read a silent sound file of one-half of one second and then continued, then the pause would be longer than a period by itself.

 

Just trying to offer ideas, even if I can’t offer a solution.

Re: Duplicate messages in my thunderbird email client

tonea.ctr.morrow@...
 

Maybe I missed it, but I didn’t see a follow-up on this. Bear with me, please.

 

I have a personal email address for non-work stuff. My cell phone is set to check with Google and show me anything I haven’t read. I can delete from my cell phone, but it only effects my phone. However, I use my home computer to pop in and it downloads the messages and them deletes them from the google server. Thus, they can no longer be seen by my phone’s email reader.

 

I’m wondering if your pop settings are not deleting from the server. Thus, you connect and get messages 1-5, and then five minutes later you get them again because they are still on the server.

 

It was just a thought…I’m no expert.

 

If you can’t find the help you need by the end of the week, let me know privately and I will personally find out by going and talking to an expert I do know.

Re: Keyboard Shortcuts List

Again, I don’t have the software and am in the process of getting it approved for my computer. In order to share the shortcut key list with my entire department, I will need to be pointed to where the list is maintained outside the software or I will need someone to send me a copy. Please remember, the goal of the list is to get sighted people who don’t have NVDA to not use your keyboard shortcuts for their own software, thus reserving those keystrokes for NVDA users.

 

Thanks!

Re: New custom NVDA Add-on. Who ask to?

Didier Colle
 

Dear Danielle,


Thanks for the info.


From a programming point of view it is a pity only a series of backspaces is sent....


Given the fact we are speaking about steno, and steno is all about speed, I have following question to you:

would it be acceptable to you that individual letters are completely spoken out when they are deleted? Not very ideal from a speed perscpective (user experience), but from a programming point of view perhaps a reliable solution could be worked out.

Otherwise, I guess we would need a mechanism to detect when the sequence of generated backspaces is over (and not waiting for the next key stroke): my first simplistic idea would be using a hold-off timer going off, but that is probably not a very reliable solution. (if I remember well from your video with steno you do 300 wpm or 5 words per sec or 200 millisec per word, counting 3 or 4 syllables per word means max 50 millisec per syllable or keystroke... that is pretty tight).

An alternative would be to create a plover plugin to be plugged in into nvda, that creates a backdoor open to plover in order to let plover instruct nvda to speak the complete syllable being deleted; obviously the plover code should be modified to give nvda this instrucction via this backdoor. At the positive side, I believe it would work more reliably and simpler to implement; at the negative side, I dislike this option as it requires code on both the nvda and plover side and I am not in favour of creating backdoors.


Please let me know what your opinion as user on the above question is / what behavior you exactly would expect.


Kind regards,


Didier

Sorry Joseph Lee, I don't have your contact, I can't ask to add you CC. Can you leave it here? Thanks.

Thank you Didier Colle for your question.

This is the answer of one of the Plover developer:

"When undoing a translation, a series of backspace events are sent. Really, just like a user would do when deleting some previously typed text; doesn't this use case work with NVDA?"

So, it seems to be as you supposed.

About your second question.
As I wrote above, to have audio feedback when I press the "delete" button, the option  “Handle keys from other applications” should be on.
NVDA reads only one letter of the group of letters I delete, it seems to be only the first or the second letter.

For example I type "telefono" using 3 strokes: te, le, fono.
To delete the word I should press the "delete" button 3 times of cours. The first time I hear the letter "f", the second time "l" and the third the letter "t".

In this case it reads the first letter of each group of stroke. But sometimes it reads the second. Honestrly I don't understand the logic, it seems randomly.
Maybe it depends what I've typed before, if strokes with even or odd number of letters, maybe...
Anyway always reads the first or the second letter of the group.
