Re: How to silence NVDA when Cortana speaks?

David Moore
 

I use Cortana for directions, scores to all ball games, weather in many places around the world, and also time around the world, and that is just a start LOL!

Cortana is not quite as smart as SIRI, but they are beginning to run neck and neck LOL!

Personal assistants are my favorite toys LOL!

If you guys would like, I have an entire list of Cortana commands and questions for her LOL!

Re: Cannot Start Outlook 2016 While NVDA Is Running

Gene
 

I'm sorry you are spending so much time trying to solve the problem.  I think that, rather than continuing to try to solve it, it makes much more sense to open the program without NVDA running, then just leave it opened. 
 
Of course, it's up to you how much time you want to spend solving what is a minor annoyance, I wouldn't have spent much time on it at all, myself.  There are some problems that, in my opinion, aren't worth spending time trying to solve when there is an easy work around.

Dear All,

Apart from working my way around starting Outlook without the reader, I have
made no progress in figuring out what is the cause or solution for why my
Outlook crashes when trying to open while NVDA is running. Here is what has
been tried--all without success:

1. I don't know about logs, but the programmer who helped me said that the
NVDA log shows no problem when the event occurs.
2. We have restored Windows to two different restore points dated before I
noticed the problem.
3. We repaired Office through a long Internet connected repair process.

Warmly,
Ralph

Hi, Joseph,

 

I agree with the others here. I think trying to do a text tutorial is asking too much. I personally prefer audio tutorials over text. You have enough on your plate with your schooling and everything else you do. Thanks so much for all that you do for us.

Hi Joseph!

I totally agree with what you are saying. People get so used to one person doing everything, then their expectations for that one person get far too high. If we want a written version of the tutorial, then let us start working on it. I am so grateful and happy with the audio version. I am afraid that this NVDA group, and all the demands will cause you to have to leave altogether. We sure do not want that. It is always a few people having to do it all, even in my church. That is too bad, that people just sit back and wait for someone else to do what they want, instead of doing it themselves. I am so sorry, Joseph, that people rely on you too much.

Joseph,

I fully support your view on this. As NVDA largely supports those of us who

are blind or visually impaired, The your audio version makes the Tutorial in

MP3 available to the widest user profile. I can't imagine the time you put

into the production. I hope that others know that you didn't just sit down

and start recording off the top of your head. The material is far too well

organized and your examples to well selected and described to not have taken

you untold hours of pre-production.

A text version would allow one to cut and paste a personal set of reminders,

but in no way, should that fall on you. I can also understand that you would

not be comfortable with less than an exact accurate copy of your work.

Though you did not copyright the Tutorial, which you might have elected to

do. Nor did you offer to sell it, though I, for one, would have gladly paid.

 

 

I suggest to this group that volunteers could use this forum to create a

free transcription Service, divide up the tutorial with each person taking

on sections to produce in a common text format. Others might serve as an

editorial board to proof and finalize the text version to be submitted to

you for approval.

 

When I was a grad student, I barely had time to keep up with my studies. I

would never had time to do what you do for NVDA and for this list.

Hi,

The user guide is the text version at the moment, and no, I won't be able to

transcribe the tutorial set on my own. There is an additional, important

condition to be met: the community must demand it. I want to see the

community wanting this; I want to see the community REALLY wanting this to

happen; I want to see the community rise up to do it; I want to get a firm

promise from the community that they'll take care of this with highest of

standards. Yes, I'm setting the bar really high on this for a number of

reasons:

1. Initiated and driven by the community: the era where you can just rely on

one person to do all sorts of things is coming to a close. In fact, we

should have left that era a long time ago. I believe that one way to move

forward is to let the community take care of itself when it is time to do so

(after being nurtured by leaders), hence my condition above regarding text

transcripts. I do know that the community can go above and beyond what I did

and can produce higher quality tutorials (complete with text transcripts),

hence the high quality requirement; but it won't work if the community

doesn't rise up to do this and other huge projects on its own.

2. Passing the torch to the next group of leaders: as noted a few weeks ago,

my active time with the community is slowly coming to a close. I believe

this is a great opportunity to find and teach the next group of leaders, and

one way to do so is giving them something to practice their skills, and

leading a huge project from start to finish is a good exercise. This is one

of the reasons why I don't involve myself a lot with NVDACon planning

recently, because I do know that current organizers can do a much better job

at organizing this gathering. Same could be set about transcriptions:

although some guidance is needed in the beginning, I believe that the

community is more than ready to tackle this from start to finish: producing

a high quality text transcription of the tutorial set.

3. Personal: I carry out some important community duties on top of being a

student and a speech and debate competitor (with trophies under my belt,

including several first place finishes and being qualified to go to national

tournaments). If you thought I am just an NVDA Expert because I can answer

questions with detailed guesses at midnight or seem to possess encyclopedic

knowledge about NVDA source code, I'd like you to sincerely think again,

taking into consideration who I really am: a student volunteer. Given that

academics takes highest of highest of priorities, I dare not go through

another project that'll drain me (this is the biggest regret I have about

producing the audio tutorial set when I should have been taking breaks).

To be blunt (sorry for coming across as too harsh): I usually don't say this

in public, but I believe it must be said before it is too late: an

accomplishment without a spark and a flame is nothing. That is, if you just

wish for things to happen without acting on it, it would have been better to

not wish it in the first place. One of the reasons why I felt burnt out from

this community (especially during tutorial set production) is people's

tendency to ask without acting on that wish, and a persistent attitude that

one must wait for a savior to give guidance without taking the initiative to

think progress and search for things on one's own. And I'm afraid that

either I have contributed to this problem, or that we are not heeding this

and similar criticisms. Thus, before we go any further (such as downloading

the book format one cannot read right now), I sincerely advise you to heed

this criticism for once, because without doing so, we won't see much

progress; I think it would be helpful for us (as a community) to assess what

we're doing, our attitudes, and what we need to do in the future, so that we

can be a much better community: a community where people can answer each

other with more confidence.

Hope this helps. I do know that my post may come across as harsh, and may

not have answered your questions. But I believe that there are more

important matters to think about, more important than text transcription of

Welcome to NVDA 2018 that'll have profound effect on this community and

beyond.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Now available: DAISY version of Welcome to NVDA 2018

 

Hi,

As for people relying on me: I do understand this to some extent, but I do know that, at some point, people will need to look for things on their own. As a famous proverb says, “teach a man to fish, and he’ll feed himself all his life” or something similar. As much as I love serving as an expert, I do know that, eventually, there will be someone much greater than I who can do much better things than some of us did. At the moment, besides studying, my job in the community seems to be raising up the next group of experts, who can take NVDA and the community to the next level. There are some projects I’m personally leading at the moment (such as teaching some of you the internals of NVDA), but I do know that we do have experts who are more than ready to showcase their skills – it’s a matter of identifying these people and giving them proper training experience.

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph,

I fully support your view on this. As NVDA largely supports those of us who

are blind or visually impaired, The your audio version makes the Tutorial in

MP3 available to the widest user profile. I can't imagine the time you put

into the production. I hope that others know that you didn't just sit down

and start recording off the top of your head. The material is far too well

organized and your examples to well selected and described to not have taken

you untold hours of pre-production.

A text version would allow one to cut and paste a personal set of reminders,

but in no way, should that fall on you. I can also understand that you would

not be comfortable with less than an exact accurate copy of your work.

Though you did not copyright the Tutorial, which you might have elected to

do. Nor did you offer to sell it, though I, for one, would have gladly paid.

 

 

I suggest to this group that volunteers could use this forum to create a

free transcription Service, divide up the tutorial with each person taking

on sections to produce in a common text format. Others might serve as an

editorial board to proof and finalize the text version to be submitted to

you for approval.

 

When I was a grad student, I barely had time to keep up with my studies. I

would never had time to do what you do for NVDA and for this list.

Hi,

The user guide is the text version at the moment, and no, I won't be able to

transcribe the tutorial set on my own. There is an additional, important

condition to be met: the community must demand it. I want to see the

community wanting this; I want to see the community REALLY wanting this to

happen; I want to see the community rise up to do it; I want to get a firm

promise from the community that they'll take care of this with highest of

standards. Yes, I'm setting the bar really high on this for a number of

reasons:

1. Initiated and driven by the community: the era where you can just rely on

one person to do all sorts of things is coming to a close. In fact, we

should have left that era a long time ago. I believe that one way to move

forward is to let the community take care of itself when it is time to do so

(after being nurtured by leaders), hence my condition above regarding text

transcripts. I do know that the community can go above and beyond what I did

and can produce higher quality tutorials (complete with text transcripts),

hence the high quality requirement; but it won't work if the community

doesn't rise up to do this and other huge projects on its own.

2. Passing the torch to the next group of leaders: as noted a few weeks ago,

my active time with the community is slowly coming to a close. I believe

this is a great opportunity to find and teach the next group of leaders, and

one way to do so is giving them something to practice their skills, and

leading a huge project from start to finish is a good exercise. This is one

of the reasons why I don't involve myself a lot with NVDACon planning

recently, because I do know that current organizers can do a much better job

at organizing this gathering. Same could be set about transcriptions:

although some guidance is needed in the beginning, I believe that the

community is more than ready to tackle this from start to finish: producing

a high quality text transcription of the tutorial set.

3. Personal: I carry out some important community duties on top of being a

student and a speech and debate competitor (with trophies under my belt,

including several first place finishes and being qualified to go to national

tournaments). If you thought I am just an NVDA Expert because I can answer

questions with detailed guesses at midnight or seem to possess encyclopedic

knowledge about NVDA source code, I'd like you to sincerely think again,

taking into consideration who I really am: a student volunteer. Given that

academics takes highest of highest of priorities, I dare not go through

another project that'll drain me (this is the biggest regret I have about

producing the audio tutorial set when I should have been taking breaks).

To be blunt (sorry for coming across as too harsh): I usually don't say this

in public, but I believe it must be said before it is too late: an

accomplishment without a spark and a flame is nothing. That is, if you just

wish for things to happen without acting on it, it would have been better to

not wish it in the first place. One of the reasons why I felt burnt out from

this community (especially during tutorial set production) is people's

tendency to ask without acting on that wish, and a persistent attitude that

one must wait for a savior to give guidance without taking the initiative to

think progress and search for things on one's own. And I'm afraid that

either I have contributed to this problem, or that we are not heeding this

and similar criticisms. Thus, before we go any further (such as downloading

the book format one cannot read right now), I sincerely advise you to heed

this criticism for once, because without doing so, we won't see much

progress; I think it would be helpful for us (as a community) to assess what

we're doing, our attitudes, and what we need to do in the future, so that we

can be a much better community: a community where people can answer each

other with more confidence.

Hope this helps. I do know that my post may come across as harsh, and may

not have answered your questions. But I believe that there are more

important matters to think about, more important than text transcription of

Welcome to NVDA 2018 that'll have profound effect on this community and

beyond.

Cheers,

Joseph

What I fail to understand is, if you do not have access to software or a

of the tutorial. It's like buying Vinyl records when you do not have a

Dear All,

Apart from working my way around starting Outlook without the reader, I have
made no progress in figuring out what is the cause or solution for why my

1. I don't know about logs, but the programmer who helped me said that the

2. We have restored Windows to two different restore points dated before I

3. We repaired Office through a long Internet connected repair process.

Re: How to silence NVDA when Cortana speaks?

David Moore
 

Yes!

Press Insert+S to cycle through speech off, speech with beeps, and speech on. Each time you press S, You keep cycling through.

So, just press Insert+S to turn the NVDA’s speech off so you can listen to Cortana. That is how I do it! You can also use the Caps lock if you have that modifier key enabled.

What I fail to understand is, if you do not have access to software or a
device that supports Daisy format, why you would download the Daisy format
of the tutorial. It's like buying Vinyl records when you do not have a
turntable and only have a CD player. It's just stupid. The tutorial from
Joseph's site is in MP3 format and is great for media players. The Daisy
format is for people with "Daisy players. Period. Choose the format that

NVDA works great with the following languages: HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, Python, SQL. I know there are more that it probably works well with but those are the ones I can personally speak to. As to editors, Notepad++ is what I personally use and it’s wonderful as long as you remember to set up a profile to have all punctuation read. Hope this helps.

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 20173 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.

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

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.

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 20173 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.

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

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!
Victor Borge'

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.

Hi Kerryn,

 

NVDA works great with the following languages: HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, Python, SQL. I know there are more that it probably works well with but those are the ones I can personally speak to. As to editors, Notepad++ is what I personally use and it’s wonderful as long as you remember to set up a profile to have all punctuation read. Hope this helps.

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

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

Re: Now available: DAISY version of Welcome to NVDA 2018

 

Well if they are numbered fine I have actually resorted to my media player to do the reading.

Ofcause due to structure daisy book files can be in little bits to.

Hi,


I did find them as mp3 files. I don't have a device like the victor stream
or plex-talk to be able to jump from section to section.

Hi,

The audio recordings are in mp3 format, which may explain why this isn't
working.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi, Joseph,


I'm not able to read the daisy format of the tutorial. Do you have to have a
special player or is this a word document?

Hi everyone,


Thanks to AccessiDocs project from Pennsylvania Council of the Blind, an
audio DAISY version of Welcome to NVDA 2018 tutorial set is now available
from:

http://www.josephsl.net/files/nvda18/DB-Welcome_to_NVDA_2018-by-Joseph_lee.z

The DAISY book is a bit out of date, but for the most part, it is up to
date.


Also, a UK-based charity named BCAB has offered to distribute this tutorial
set on physical media for a fee.


Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

You can use a daisy player like amis to read this.

You can use your talking book machine to read this, all library machines are daisy complient.

You can use it on your smart phone.

Amis is one such player.

I am unsure about others as such, but dolphin easy reader full is only 85 bucks us for what it is and will work with nvda.
