Hi Igor,


Thanks for the info brother. That seems to be the case most of the time
with programs like that, a real shame.

Hi Tony.

The Propellerhead reason is the music production program. Very powerful, has a lot of samples, synthesizers and effects to join and mix together.
Unfortunately after playing with it for some time, I have to say, no, it is not accessible.

All the best.

Hello!
I would like to find out, if someone was able to use Propellerhead reason successfully with NVDA?
I have downloaded the trial version, it looks to be somewhat accessible and also has a lot of keyboard shortcuts, however since I have never used it before, I don't know, if it is accessible enough to do something useful!
Would love to hear some success or failure storyes!

All the best!

Re: say copy selected text

Tony Ballou
 

Hi,


There's an add on called clip speak, that will do this.  I don't think its on the add ons website anymore though.  I think because It works with windows 10 without a hitch that it should be; and I can drop box it too you if you like.

have paid up to $100 for other instruction books.

this one is by far the best.  It includes operations I had wondered
about, and some I had never heard of.  I discovered little pieces of
information I had always wondered about--like what is mirroring in the
print dialog--and how to accomplish tasks I hadn't even thought
about.  The language is terse and to the point, leaving me sometimes
to wish for a little hand holding; but reviewing the instructions
always produces enough information to make my way through to success. 
I am totally blown away by the excellence and the incluusiveness of
this document.

Cudos!  Awesome!  Wow!

p.s.  My favorite program of all times is Excel.  I am on my way to

Do you know if there is any more they need to do for that side of it or is it ready to go?.

For some time now this has been known to be due to  registry issues due to uninstallers of other software not correctly registering important files. The latest next snapshot has a tool to fix this, rather predictably in its tool menu, so if you are having such issues, it may well be a good idea to try this version of nvda and use the tool.
it should do no harm, but do remember that next snaps are bleeding edge code and will need to be used with caution. Always back up your previous version and set a restore point before doing any work on registry files. Note the account that its used on has to have admin access or it won't work.

Hi All,

I came across a great Windows keyboard command on-line…

This will be useful for working with music files, like making a playlist, but sometimes I hate those browse boxes when it does not open into the folder where the file is, and you have to back out and find the folder where you are wanting to open or attach a file.

So when you have the folder open and you are on top of the file, do the following:

Shift + applications key

Then press the letter A.

This will put the entire path and file name into the clipboard, ready for pasting into that browse field.

This works with or without a screenreader.

Sure. Just put two backslashes.

Hi Group,


On one list I am subscribed to, an individual using a foreign font or
character set has a back slash in his address field. With NVDA it reads
&#92;. I looked up this expression and found it was a back slash
symbol. When I tried entering this expression into the NVDA speech
dictionary and substituting back slash for the proper pronunciation,
NVDA locked up. I had to run Narrator and remove the item from speech
dictionary to restore NVDA to usage.


Has anyone else noticed this issue and if so, is there a solution?
Thanks in advance.

I think here in the UK the most popular one is the one the Torch Trust sell as a stand alone voice device.
Just for interest.

Hi Folks:

Has anyone developed an add-on for the Online Bible program? The Online
Bible is one of the most widely used free E-Bible programs out there. That
would make it a perfect fit for NVDA.

If this has not been done, can anyone point me to a resource where I can
make this happen?

Thanks all over the place.

Hi Joseph,
Does no icon in the tray when the an nvda portable version you just created runs count as an issue?

Subject: [nvda] IMPORTANT COMMUNITY ADVISORY: NVDA next snapshots will include wxPython 4.0.1


Hi NVDA community,



The following is considered important due to massive impact it'll have:



For those following the GitHub issue:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7104



wxPython 4 came out in February 2018 (subsequently updated to 4.0.1 a few
days later). As this is a necessary milestone on our preparation to move to
Python 3, wxPython 4 watchers (including NV Access, I, Leonard de Ruijter
and others) felt it would be good to let the community test wxPython 4
integration for a while. As the chief investigator for wxPython 4 migration,
I'm happy to announce that, as of today, NVDA next branch snapshots will
include wxPython 4. However, this means it'll have issues, the biggest one
being outdated add-ons (unfortunately, NVDA Remote Support add-on is one of
those add-ons that won't work under wxPython 4 due to calls to deprecated
methods). If you run into other issues or bugs, please let me and other
develoeprs know ASAP via GitHUb or email.



notes for community:



* For NVDA Core developers: if you are working on any sort of GUI
work, please test wxPython 4 migration via a private branch or two. This is
especially the case for me and Leonard as we are both working on GUI edits
(Leonard's work on multi-page settings dialog and my work on add-on update
client interface).
* For add-on writers: please update your add-ons as soon as possible.
When updating your add-ons, please try using code paths that'll work on both
wxPython 3 (Classic) and wxPython 4 (Phoenix) to maximize compatibility).
* For users: as noted above, please report any bugs with wxPython 4
integration via GitHub or email as soon as you run across them.
* For Python 3 researchers: I advise pausing our research for a little
while until wxPython 4 lands on NVDA master snapshots.



Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph



Re: Other tool for solving the Verification Image

I think if anyone can test such things it would be mighty handy. Does anyone have a list of all the sites with various types of these on?
I see them very little thank goodness and always vote with my finger away when I do.

How much is this ones cost and can one have a free test of it. I unfortunately cannot test it on ff quantum as I've no intention of using it without some sound capability to let me know when things are happening in the software like download complete and multi clicks when scripts are running and moving me to other pages etc. I find this far better than not knowing.

I know this has been posted before but could not retrieve the email
about the extension or addons for Firefox that is similar with
webvism. I appreciate if you could share it again here some
alternative option that I could use with on the Firefox ESR to solve
the capture or verification image.
