If you had gone to the page where the podcast is and followed my instructions, you could have sent this address:
 
I don't know what you see with Internet Explorer.  With Firefox, there is an item that says something like Media Player and on the line below is the word application.  If I press enter on the word "application" a web player comes up with a slider and buttons such as play I can tab to.  If I press enter on play, the file plays. 
 
You said initially that the file plays in Windows Media Player.  I don't know what happens in Internet Explorer.  In modern browsers, that doesn't happen.  The file is played in a player and there is no link to the file, just a button to play the file.

The recorder is a portable version.  Extract the zip files, and then, when you are in the folder where the files of the program are, find the virtual recorder.exe file and press enter on it.  When you open the folder, typing the letter v once will take you to the file.
 
When the program opens, tab around to the field with the word "device as the description.  Up and down arrow until you find the what you hear option.  That is the setting you want.  It will be remembered so you don't have to set it again when you open the program.  You will see obvious buttons such as reccord.  Use the space bar on the buttons.  The file you are recording is in the folder where the program files are.  I believe it is named recording.mp3.  Be sure to move the file where you want it after you record it and tchange the name either before or after moving.  You can't listen to the file using the program.  You can play the file in any player that can play MP3 files.  You can't edit with the program either.  If you want to edit, you will have to use a different program.  But this is a very simple program that will record anything you hear when your sound card plays.
 
You can download the zip file by following this link:

The problem is that we don't know what you are trying to download, and the
instructions for how to download it may be different depending on what it
is.

Show us a URL for the podcast, or at least for a page containing a link to
it, and we can take a look for ourselves to try and help you.

Until you show us the specific thing you want to download, we're just
guessing at the best way to do it, and that's both inefficient and

If you explain what you did, we might find out what the problem is.  Don't use this procedure while the podcast is playing.  Do it when you are just on the page. 

 

F6, then control c, then control f6 to return to the page.  Then go the the e-mail message you are writing and paste with control v.  If you try this and it doesn't work, try the same thing on another site and see if it doesn't work.  Which screen-reader are you using?  If it doesn't work, this may either be because of user error or a problem with Windows or your screen-reader.  At this point, we have no way to make a guess or try to find out.

I didn't say the person should copy the address of the podcast itself.  I said he should copy the address of the page he is working on.  He's already on the page and I gave step-by-step instructions on how to do it.  There was no response, not even a message asking for help or saying he didn't understand the instructions. 

 

I'm not participating in the thread as a moderator.  Unless I state that I'm speaking as a moderator or I send a message that is clearly a moderation message, I'm participating as a member. 

 

I didn’t look at the site because I was waiting for the full address.  I could have looked but I expect a certain amount of effort from the person asking for help.

Have you actually looked at this webpage? I do use the internet and have much to learn,but this particular site is, as I said, not very blind friendly.

If you visit the site and give actuall instructions from that page, finding the podcast and copying it’s URL then maybe having a look at the site as a whole, perhaps you may change your opinion, you are a moderator, so shoot me down in flames, I am just defending someone who may not have the skills to even follow your instructions.

 

Some of the replies to this person have, in my humble opinion, been rather terse and maybe even rude. Maybe I am in a minority of one, so what’s new?

And because everyone isn't a whizzkid, I explained, giving every step, how to copy an address from a web page and paste it into the message.  There has been no response to my message.  This isn't just a skil that is important in instances like this.  It is important when you want to send something to someone in an e-mail message, such as a page with an article you want them to read.  It is a fundamental skill of Internet use.  There has been no response to my message.  When three people ask you for information and one of them gives a detailed step-by-step description of how to do it and when there is no response, I refuse to help further until some indication is given that the person is willing to learn how to provide information properly.  If this indication is given, if the person does it or says he doesn't understand how to do something I wrote, some sort of meaningful response, then I'll be happy to help again.  But not until then.  Part of asking for help is learning the proper way to provide information if you don't know how.

Hello,

Of course it would have been easier if we had the URL in the first
place, but, having visited the website, for a site perporting to be for
blind people, it is not very blind friendly, I think our friend who
first asked the question did very well to actually get the file to play.
All the suggestions have had their merits, but I think that it will be
more straightforward to just get it playing and then use an audio editor
to record it in real time.
Perhaps someone will look at the site and make it more blind friendly,
now that we have the site, step by step instructions would be helpful
for downloading an MP3 file, because I couldn't do this, why they are
buried deep in the site is beyond me.
finally, we should remember that not everyone is a wizz kid with
computers, including myself, surely this list is to help those who are
still learning, perhaps learning the basics, even if it is frustrating
at times. Let's hope we haven't put our friend off from asking questions
in future.

If that really is the site Anthony's talking about (I await his
confirmation), then there are MP3 URLs embedded in the source code of
the podcast pages, and those URLs can be downloaded as offline-playable MP3s.

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a standard pattern for
converting a podcast page URL to the corresponding MP3 download URL,
but it's certainly possible to download the podcasts.

I found the URLs by starting from a page with the player on it,
pressing the Windows Context key (without any link focused) and then
selecting "View Page Info" from the context menu which appears. If
you then move one icon to the right (from "General" to "Media"), you
get a list of all the media links on the page, and one of them is the downloadable MP3.


I hope that helps,


Antony.

Re: Scanner / OCR recommendation

Blee Blat <bleeblat@...>
 

Good to know. The KNFB Reader demo didn't look all that promising. So I'll have to investigate this. Thank you for that.


Re: Scanner / OCR recommendation

ely.r@...
 

Evening, or at least here in New England it is.

I have been using Abby FineReader for years. It is my original version 11 and it is running well under Windows 10. Right now my scanner is part of my Cannon printer, and though a one page at a time model, it serves very well. Abby is remarkably accurate and will scan to a wide variety of formats including Word, Excel and Epic.

 

One of the little things I like about it is that when installed, it adds itself to the context menu. Find a PDF file , hit the context key, arrow down to Abby and press the right arrow to view the options of formats you can convert to. Press the enter key and Abby opens and converts the file and then opens it in the correct app.

The only change I would make right now is to move to a scanner with a document feeder. I am also serious about moving up several generations of Abby.

Honestly I owe Abby the purchase of a newer version. Over the years with several major crashes, support has been quick and clear and restoration was very simple.

Good luck finding a solution that works, does not require fifty key presses and most important does not cost too much. I am a firm believer in an application that does a single job, but does it very well.

 

As for OCR on an iPad, if you have not tried Seeing AI, it is quite  a program, with a variety of  functions and if is free on the Appstore. Interestingly it was developed and is well maintained by Microsoft.

 

Disclaimer here: I do not work for Abby nor do I sell any of their products. Feel free to contact me off list if I can be of help, or just ask questions here.

Hi everyone,

 

I've got a query about a standalone scanner.  Is the OCR software which comes with any of the scanners such as Epson or Canon accessible (or even have an accessible Word plugin), or which third-party OCR would be worth considering?

 

I've personally used Omnipage and Abbyy in the past, and also had a scanner with an OCR plugin for Word that worked well, even though the main software wasn't great, but I haven't looked at anything recently to recommend.

 

Kind regards


Quentin.

Yes, I'd thought about that. That's the reason I didn't get one of the ones that works on the phone. If you send it for processing, who knows what happens to your image? Getting a good scan with a phone camera takes a bit of work too, I have found, though I can make it work. The last time I tried OCR though, which was the built-in Windows 10 one, on a scanned PDF, it made a complete mess of the output.


Re: Scanner / OCR recommendation

Ian Blackburn
 

I would recommend standalone scanning solutions for privacy issues

Such items as read easy move do a good job
You can use your phone with its apps for things that are not private
Because who knows if a computer is connected to the Internet how the software actually works
I mean does it send it to a remote server for processing for example
And then what happens to the image there
Just my thoughts regards Ian

Re: still not hearing ctrl key and some other keys

Blee Blat <bleeblat@...>
 

Yes, keyboard help is really useful, even if you know your keyboard well. They put keys on laptop keyboards in weird places and that can really mess things up. It's also a quick typing tutor if you're trying to learn a new keyboard layout. I used it for that purpose once.


Re: still not hearing ctrl key and some other keys

Quentin Christensen
 

If you want to use it to check whether keys are working or find out what keys are on a new keyboard, press NVDA+1 (number row 1) to turn input help on.  Then it will read every key you press without doing anything, so you can test what different keys are or whether they work.

Once finished, press NVDA+1 again to turn input help off.

Re speak command keys, you can also toggle this with NVDA+4 (again 4 on the number row).

Kind regards

Quentin.

been re registering them may not work. Indeed on the machine I had like

any attempt to even compact the registry resulted in windows restarting.





it of course then loaded back the un modified last known good copy.



When you get very rare events such as this one, you really do need
somebody


experienced on site.

Its hard to ask the right questions otherwise I find.

This can be especially pertinent if the user has no interest in the under

the hood stuff of computers and hence does not know how to look at some

aspects of what you ask. Not saying this its the case here, but this is

often when tech folk resort to a reformat and re install,we hen its
probably


not required. Brian

Just a couple of things to check...



Are you just running nvda? Or do you have other screen readers running at

the same time, even on silent mode?



Check audio ducking in nvda as well as windows



Also check the audio output device is correct in nvda



And of course you have tried other synths as well?? Haven’t you?

Re: CD ripping software that works well with NVDA

I've used old versions successfully but you do need t set it up for your drive, and not all drives on the older versions are supported. Does unchecky not spot the bundled software?

Could you please put your install file in Dropbox and send us the link to download it? That would save us having to worry about unwanted stuff.

Thank you.

Huh. Very annoying.



I know it’s sometimes annoying advice, but have you tried reinstalling the programme?



I can certainly verify that my 1.85 works fine on Windows 10. I press f9 and it rips with no complaints. However, there’s that unfortunate bundled software you don’t want, which you’ll have to get around, if you want to install it. It can be done though. As stated in a previous message, I wasn’t aware of it at first and thought something had frozen. I ended up unintentionally saying “yes” to all that stuff, and in the end used malwarebytes to help get rid of it. Obviously, not a really desirable solution.

It seems to run, but if I try to rip anything, it just sits there like a dummy and does nothing at all. It just won't work. No error messages or anything to help figure out what's going on.

Hi.



I’m using Cdex 1.85. But I don’t really see any reason why an older version wouldn’t work. Hell, I’m using Nero Multimedia Suite from 2011 for instance and it works fine on my Windows 10 machine, though I had to do some tweaks. Maybe it would help if you described exactly what happens when you try to run the program?

Lucky you! I had been using 1.70 of CDex on Win XP and then Win 7 but with Win 10, it just won't work. I tried compatibility mode and told it the last version it worked in with was Win 7 but it still won't work here. How did you hold your mouth to coax your machine to run this? I'd sure like to know how to do it.
