programming question

Kerryn Gunness
 


hi guys
1 does NVDA work with python or any popular programming language?
2 in developing websites, what software do you all use, note pad, note pad ++ or an external software like dream wever or fireworks?
is NVDA accessible with these?
thanks

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA question

Hi everyone,

Sorry, I was out all day yesterday, so coming back in late to all the questions.  It looks like most have been answered.

Re the OCR, if you are using Windows 10 and NVDA 2017.3 or later, you don't need an addon for OCR.  If you are using an either version of either NVDA or Windows, then you will need the addon.  Basically, the OCR works on images, whether jpg graphic files or PDF documents etc.  It won't do the scanning of hardcopy documents itself - to do that you will need scanning software.  Any hardware scanner should come with software, and possibly also an OCR program, though how accessible and how good any of them are varies.  So the Windows 10 OCR, or the addon are really useful, but likely not a complete replacement for an OCR package like Omnipage or Abbyy Finereader, particularly for converting hardcopy documents into electronic text.

The other question was around using NVDA to control the mouse.  NVDA can click or lock either mouse button, make the focus jump to where the mouse pointer is, or jump the mouse pointer to the item with focus, see the User Guide for the keys for each: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#toc39

Windows has a "mousekeys" function which lets you move the mouse with the keyboard, and there is also an add-on for NVDA called "Golden Cursor" which has even more functionality: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/goldenCursor.en.html

The other thing to consider is why you want to move the mouse.  Depending on where you are and what you are trying to do, NVDA has a feature called "object navigation" which is very powerful although does take a little bit to get your head around.  Essentially object navigation lets you move through the objects in the current program (and out of the current program).  Microsoft Word for instance has objects for the ribbon, the scroll bars, ruler and main document.  When you go into an object (say the ribbon), you can move through the ribbon sections, then go down into a particular section to navigate through the ribbon items in that section.  Some people like it for navigating the ribbon, but another thing you can do with it, is get to features which you can't ordinarily get to with the keyboard and interact with it - it can be used to read, and copy read only text on a dialog box for instance.

Bonus tip: You can copy the text from a dialog box which has focus, by simply pressing CONTROL+C.  For instance, open Notepad, type something, press ALT+F4.  A dialog will appear asking "Do you want to save changes to untitled" with buttons for "save", "don't save" and "cancel".  To copy all that, simply press CONTROL+C.  It copies the following to the clipboard:

[Window Title]
Notepad

[Main Instruction]
Do you want to save changes to Untitled?

[Save] [Don't Save] [Cancel]

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi

If you look in the menus of nvda by pressing the nvda key + letter N then go down to preferences then right to general settings then down to windows 10 ocr there will be a menu there but is more to set your language. You must also have windows 10 as well at present i am using nvda 2017.4.

When you want to ocr say a photo with text etc in it make sure it is in focus then use the nvda key + letter R.

it will start recognizing it and rip the text out of it of which then you can arrow up and down to see what is there. It brings up a little windows where you can do that and even do it letter by letter and character by character. It can also be copied and pasted.

If you do not have a windows 10 machine that option will not be there.

Instead then you have to use the other ocr add on and it is slightly different to read the text. I can give directions to use that one and point you in the right direction if this is the case.

I keep hearing that there is an OCR option for nvda is it true OCR? And that you can scan a piece of mail or a book with it? If that's true, how does it work and where do you get it I looked and can't find it and only see stuff about recognizing images on the screen like on Facebook or something but then I keep hearing that there is actual OCR so can someone tell me how to find it and if that's true or not thanks

Hi Kerryn,

 

I copied this from last October's In-Process re using OCR.  Basically:

 

To do OCR with NVDA 2017.4 on Windows 10:

1. Open the PDF file in Adobe Reader.

2. Press NVDA+r. NVDA reports “Recognising”. After a pause, NVDA reports “Result document”.
3. Although visually, the screen hasn’t changed, NVDA has placed the text recognised in the image in a “virtual document”. You can navigate around this just like a document in WordPad. Press NVDA+down arrow (laptop: NVDA+a) to read the whole document from the current point.
4. Press control+home to move to the top of the virtual document.
5. Press down arrow to move through and read the text line by line.
6. When finished, press escape to exit the virtual document.

 

Or, using Windows 7 or 8 OR NVDA earlier than 2017.3:

1. Open the PDF file in Adobe Reader

2. Press NVDA+r. NVDA reports “Recognising”. After a pause, NVDA reports “Done”.
3. Although visually, the screen hasn’t changed, NVDA has placed the text recognised in the image in a “virtual document”. You can navigate around this using the review cursor. Press numpad plus (laptop: NVDA+shift+a) to read the whole document from the current point
4. Press shift+numpad 7 (laptop: NVDA+control+home) to move to the top of the virtual document.
5. Press numpad 9 (laptop: NVDA+down arrow) to move through and read the text line by line.

 

 

With regard to "utilising the mouse arrow", could you please clarify exactly what you are trying to do?  Yes it is possible to do several things either with the mouse, or to the mouse and with further information, I can give you steps for that also.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin

You are assuming a sound would be wanted for every punctuation sign.  And at least in Engglish and many languages, there aren't that many.  Period, question mark, colon, semicolon quotation marks and you might want a sound for ellipsis.  You could have more sounds as well.  You could have sounds in the pronunciation dictionary so you can assign sounds for whatever you want.  The user could even put sound files in the program if he/she doesn't like what is provided.  Now let's see what kinds of sounds we might have  Bell, whistle, door close, door open, chime, and all sorts of variations such as high pitch bell, low pitch bell, car dor, a door such as in a house, and other people may come up with all sorts of other examples.  The world is full of distinctive sounds.  And JAWS has had such a feature for probably over a dedcade so this is not at all a novel idea.

I'm sure you were aware that there was a now dead comedian who made a lot of
money with his monologues where he substituted sounds for Punctuation!

Now my one problem with having a mode like this is, given the number of
different marks and their meaning in different circumstances in different
languages, it could need one heck of a  lot of individual sounds to cover
them all. I do know what you are getting at different sorts of brackets and
colons etc, are main candidates, with underscores being also useful.

Maybe this is add on territory ie a programmers version as most of us prefer
not to hear these greater thans etc all over the place, but obviously such
things are important in programming as are brackets and indents etc.

Re: suggestion for feedback

I think GitHub issue tracking is the right tool for the purpose.

Hi Rusty,

 

Having a link directly to the issue tracker (even to create a new issue) isn't a bad idea (unfortunately it will require someone to create an issue on Github to get the ball rolling *grin*).  As we use GitHub, it would still open a browser and you would need to be logged into (or create) a Github account.  Even if we moved away from Github to another issue tracker, I don't see a way around that, as the issue tracker does several things:

1. It keeps track of issues that people raise and allows them to be prioritised and followed through to completion.

2. By registering, it allows the developers to ask follow-up questions, provide links to test builds so the original person (and anyone else interested) can see if we have indeed resolved the issue.

3. It allows issues to be searchable and keeps them all in one place.

 

If we just had say a "provide feedback" option in NVDA which simply sent us an e-mail with your problem / idea / etc, then it would be hard to keep track of who had asked for what, how many people were having a particular problem, and we would get a lot of duplicate e-mails.

 

The other thing with Github is that while NV Access has several in-house developers, there are many others around the world who also contribute code, testing, feedback and other assistance and we need a central repository to make that all possible.  If you e-mailed me and asked for a particular feature, we can look at it, but it might be something that isn't a high enough priority to get to immediately.  It might however, be something one of our other contributors has an interest in and would like to write some code to support and they may be able to get to it faster, but I don't necessarily know who might be interested.

 

So, in short... would you like to create a github issue with your idea? https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

I don't know, but I can say that I've not used it in some time because it was not intermittent for me, it was very persistent and annoying.

I think this is some kind of artefacting with the Eloquence voice. Others have reported the same thing. Nothing to be done at the moment, I suppose, other than try a different synth.

suggestion for feedback

Rusty Perez
 

Hey folks,
I think it would be a GREAT idea for NVDA to have a feedback option
right in the NVDA menu.
"report a problem" or something like that.
Honestly, it's easier for me to just use another browser than to slog
through a registration and goofing around in github to report a
problem.

I know, NVDA is donation ware, but it might make the product even
better to make giving feedback a more painless process. :)

Unable to Start Outlook 2016 While Running NVDA

Ralph Boersema
 

Note: I changed the subject line when I sent the message below, but it continued with the original subject when I received it. So, I’ll try again.

 

 

I am running Windows 10 and have the latest update of NVDA. Lately my Outlook 2016 has restarted almost every time I change folders in my Outlook Mail. Then, yesterday I found that it would present a problem and not be able to restart. I could also not start up Outlook from the Windows Start menu. With the help of sighted persons, we found that we needed to exit Nvda, open Outlook  and a particular mail folder, and only then start up NVDA.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Warmly,

Ralph


Re: Verification of AddOn full installation. (Win 10 Essentials)

I guess you could uninstall the add-on and re-install it again

See if that solves the issue

 

Make sure the folder is removed after uninstalling

Just to make sure

 

Good luck

I just installed the Windows 10 Essentials package and was  that the directory name in %appdata% has “pending install” at the end of its name. Is something not complete and how do I get it to complete?

Re: Google drive nagging

Idrive is different. It has nothing to do with apple. You can do express back ups and restores, and more. He app is very accessible and you can even back up your phone as well and access that off site. It will even do facebook, one drive and I don't actually know what else. Here is my ref link.

I see that Google drive are nagging me to update to the back up and restore new version. I disabled updates some time ago to keep the old format as nvda would not work very well with the newer versions coming out and also they were crashing machines all over the place
Is it now safe to update as the cryptic message its putting up every so often is that its no longer supported, which could just mean its not ever going to get security updates or that they intend to stop users with the old software from accessing the system any more. I have no idea which, but a few days after Google also nagging me to not use email clients to access their accounts they do seem to be getting a bit too aggressive toward their users in my view.

Is there any other easy to use cloud storage that can run on old xp machines,which is the only real reason for using google drive at all since dropbox stopped its software running, mainly due to the fact that they started to use a newer code compiler that made code that fell over on xp.

Re: Kindle program and NVDA

Quick update. Apparently the uninstalling, removing all the data left
and reinstalling didn't work out for this particular case, not sure
what else there is to try though, as we've established through trial
that it isn't NVDA itself any more, or the book attempting to be read.

Ask your friend do re-download the book, with the new installer you

means he's got the old version of the book, downloaded with the rpevious
version of Kindle for Pc, and he should obtain a newer format.

In theory my friend should have the latest version, I sent the

older version of the program, like way, way out of date... so maybe
the problem's being caused from some left over data that wasn't
overwritten? First thing though I think will probably be to try the
reinstalling after clearing everything out.
Thanks.

Sorry for chiming in here. I've only just seen this, and wonder whether
your friend has the latest Kindle for Pc version.


I have an older version on my netbook, and tehe newest on this machine.
If I download my Kindle books on the netbook, I get a non-navigable
version, pretty much like the older format Amazon used to have.


If I re-download the same title on this machine, with the latest Kindle
version, I get a navigable version (hope the word "navigable" isn't made
up... lol!).


This, of course, provided the title does have both versions available.


Usually, the newer format comes as a folder, while the older one comes
as three single files, which include the azw file.

As to the problem, it's pretty much that issue exactly. When I remoted

perfectly fine using the review keys, but you can't just normally
navigate using browse mode or say all.

Just looking through our issues, if I search for Kindle:

they uninstalled Kindle, cleared their library and reinstalled Kindle
everything worked. While a bit annoying, that's potentially one
avenue

try to resolve it.

Hi all,
I was wondering if someone could help troubleshoot an issue with the

Recently, my friend was having some issues with this thing, and
couldn't

friend
a
portable copy of my NVDA installation, which seemed to have fixed the
issue, and they were able to read books normally in browse mode.
However as of today, apparently the issue is back, and I have no
ideas
on
what it could be, as I use the kindle reader too and I never had any
issues
at all. Restarting NVDA or the kindle program haven't fixed the

and
the current book in question has already been read successfully so we

using windows 7, and me being on 10.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Google drive nagging

Is it now accessible on Windows or are you using it on a Mac?

I in-installed it from both my windows 10 Desktop  and Laptop  last year as at that time the settings / preferences were inaccessible on both machines. Very annoying at the time.

I use google back up and sync. It's very accessible and works well. I also ise iDrive as well for my more important stuff.

Well at  the moment it has just stopped synchronising so I guess that answers part of the question, nice of them to give me about half an hours warning. Thanks google.

I see that Google drive are nagging me to update to the back up and restore new version. I disabled updates  some time ago to keep the old format as nvda would not work very well with the newer versions coming out and also they were crashing machines all over the place
Is it now safe to update as the cryptic message its putting up every so often is that its no longer supported, which could just mean its not ever going to get security updates or that they intend to stop users with the old software from accessing the system any more. I have no idea which, but a few days after Google also nagging me to not use email clients to access their accounts they do seem to be getting a bit too aggressive  toward their users in my view.

Is there any other easy to use cloud storage that can run on old xp machines,which is the only real reason for using google drive at all since dropbox stopped its software running, mainly due to the fact that they started to use a newer code compiler that made code that fell over on xp.

Verification of AddOn full installation. (Win 10 Essentials)

Hello,

 

I just installed the Windows 10 Essentials package and was  that the directory name in %appdata% has “pending install” at the end of its name. Is something not complete and how do I get it to complete?

 

Thanks,

Great, thanks for the clarification, and sorry for unnecessarily kicking up a row here. Have a good one.

Hi,

Yes, this again confirms my hypothesis. See a message I sent earlier for the full explanation.

Cheers,

Hi Joseph,

Win+X says unknown for me and indeed does not read. The other menus that didn't read, however, didn't say unknown, just in case it matters.

Kind regards,

Felix

Hi,

What about Windows+X menu? If NVDA does not read that menu, then don’t worry – fixed in newer builds.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi!

I'm running Windows Insider build 17074.1002 64 bit. With this build, the current NVDA Master won't read menus in Notepad. Perhaps more importantly, context menus for files and folders in Windows Explorer are also not read. For me, that is. It would be great if other Windows Insiders could try to reproduce, to prevent this from suddenly affecting users post 2018.1.

Here's one piece of evidence it's NVDA-related and not just my system: JAWS does not have those problems. Reinstall of NVDA does not fix them, neither does restoring factory defaults.
Kind regards,

Felix
