Re: New user questions: voice rate, reading message in WLM.

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Janet,

With the OneCore voices, adjusting the speed can be a little trickier than other synthesizers.  We're working on having this fixed, but in the meantime, Press the Windows key, type "Speech settings" and open the Speech Settings system setting item.  In there, tab down to the "speed" slider, and use that to adjust the speed.  You can use both this and the rate settings in NVDA itself.  So the fastest you can go is to set this slider all the way to the right, and increase the speech rate in NVDA to 100%.  You can do that either from the Voice settings dialog (NVDA+control+v) or using the Synth settings ring.  Press NVDA+CONTROL+LEFT or RIGHT ARROW to select the item to adjust (the default is rate) then press NVDA+CONTROL+UP arrow to increase and NVDA+CONTROL+DOWN ARROW to decrease the rate.

As you have found, the "Rate boost" feature is available in eSpeak, but not in Windows OneCore voices.  There are various features which are only available in one synthesizer or another.  One slightly hidden feature for instance, is using eSpeak or OneCore voices, instead of pressing CONTROL to stop speech and then pressing the say all command to start again, you can press SHIFT once to pause speech at any time, and then SHIFT again to continue speaking from exactly where it left off.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Thank you for all that great information. I’m using Windows-1 core voices which doesn’t seem to support the rate boost feature. I’ll have to experiment with some of the other voices that come with NVDA. When reading through the mannual, I didn’t find information about this voice rate boost feature. Did I miss it or is it just not there?

Hi Janet

 

I do not use the programthat you metion so no answer there.

 

The answer to the second questions is press the ctrl key +nvda key + the letter V

 

next tab down to rate boost and check it with the space bar it is just under the rate one.

 

it might be a good idea first to drop the rate right down then check the rate boost box first then go back up and speed it up via the rate one.

 

The reason for that is it might go 2 fast and you may not be able to under stand it.

 

By the way which synth/voice package are you using? as it may not work on some other synth packages but will for sure on the e speak one

 

You will see what i mean if you try it with e speak and then with one that might not work with it.

Hello everyone,
 
After using Window-Eyes for many years I started using NVDa about a week ago and am quite impressed so far. Hopefully someone can answer a couple of questiongs: First, when reading messages in WLM, the message doesn’t start reading automatically when I open it. I have to first press “tab” which then says document. Then it reads the first and last lines. I have to use the up and down arrow keys to read the entire message. How can I read messages more smoothly and automatically? when I open them?
 
Second, I have the voice rate set to 100% which is sometimes too slow, especially when going through long lists of messages. I remember seeing somewhere that the rate can be increased up to 300%, but I don’t remember how to do this. Would someone please refresh my memory?
 
Thanks for your help, I’m sure I will have more questions over the next few weeks.

Re: NVDA doesn't work with bandcamp web site

Jonathan COHN
 

Actually, since I had neither windows or a full sized keyboard available, I actually made a mistake in confusing the "/" and the "*" on the numpad.

In any case, I believe everybody on list should now be able to do this. Also, for those still reading, I believe what causes issues like this is when the developer uses a onMouseUp or on MouseDown handler instead of a onClick handler.

I could not get it to play in google chrome.

Hi Nancy,

If you are using the review cursor and / or object navigation to move through a document / web page / application, and want to activate the current item, try NVDA+numpad enter (or with laptop keyboard layout NVDA+enter).  In many cases this will activate the current item similar to clicking on it with the mouse.

You can also try moving the system focus to the current item by pressing NVDA+shift+numpad minus (with laptop key layout press NVDA+shift+backspace).  At that point, you may be able to activate the item with SHIFT or ENTER etc depending on what it is and what you want to do.


In the Basic Training for NVDA see the "NVDA Review Cursor" section and the following "Object Navigation" section.  You can download the Review Cursor section for free as a trial of the book from: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/basic-training-for-nvda-ebook/ (there is a "Basic NVDA Training eBook sample" link on that page).

Yeah, I'm noticing the same thing, and am stuck.
It is working with JAWS 18.
On my old machine I could never get the bandcamp player to play either.

If there's no solution to this, we should probably bring this up with
Bandcamp support.

More info.
When I try to focus the play button by navigating with object review or
document review mode, nvda reports "off screen"
I'm pretty novice at these review modes so can someone tell me what's
going on here, and what I may be able to do to fix this?
I'm thinking of releasing some of my music on bandcamp, but not if it's
not accessible. :)

Here's a link to a page.
Try and activate any of the play/pause buttons with space or nvda

the mouse and getit to play.
I'm pasting a link to a band called "screenreader' because I thought

Re: Google docs with NVDA and Firefox ESR

mk360
 

Is defined on Google docs. If you see the google docs help, you will see that they recomend to change some default keys, for example the NVDA starting key to avoid conflicts with docs.

Hello Mary and all,

Google Docs works fine with Firefox ESR and NVDA.

Did you activate screen reader support in pressing ctrl+alt+Z?

If so, NVDA should announce that screen reader support is enabled.

If you want to write in the document, mae sure that forms mode is on in
pressing nvda+space. You should then be able to use your keystrokes.

I hope this helps.

Best

Apologies for strange posts

Hmm, the missing emails from this list have been trickling in and seem to have got all out of sequence. Also my keyboard was acting up so if you were wondering about messages being rather great in number and occasionally gibberish, I think all is now relatively sorted here.
Virgin email blame the bad weather, apparently.
gulp.

Yes it does seem a trifle illogical really other wise!
I'm having keyboard issues today, so this may also be why its not working for me.

I've generally found that you have to root your mouse first before you simulate a mouse press, otherwise the player won't play anything. It would be useful to bring that up with Bandcamp support I think.

1. Get to a play button, I do this with the arrow keys.


2. Hit NVDA-numpad slash.


3. Hit numpad-slash.


4. Hear music come from your noise-making thingies.


I should add, this is in Firefox.
