Hey there Chris.

 

I personally really really like QRead from QContinuum. It’s about 15 bucks, but it’s very very very worth it. It can read EPub, PDF, Bookshare with a built in downloader, etc.

 

It really has become my book reader for the PC. I absolutely love it!

The price is more than reasonable. Especially when you consider how exorbitant some stuff is … not mentioning names here, but you know.

 

But what else has he put out? I thought I remembered looking at his site and not seeing any other software up there, which seemed strange….but it was some time ago, and perhaps I just missed something.

Re: Waterfox Works Well With NVDA And A Question

 

Aparently for ever.

They will stay with the current mozilla code till june, they want to keep the old addon structure, but want to do their own implimentation of the source.

The fact they want to keep the old addons working simply means they probably can't use all of quantom, which means no web extentions which probably means none of the new interface systems either.

Subject: [nvda] Waterfox Works Well With NVDA And A Question


Hi Group,


Waterfox works quite well with NVDA. I suppose it's no surprise--since the basic underlying code is Mozilla. This is only for 64 bit systems.


It is supposed to work well with unsigned add ons. I was hoping it would work well with the latest add on version of Webvisum. Unfortunately, I cannot get it to work with Webvisum. Has anyone else been able to get Webvisum to work with Waterfox? The latest version of Webvisum is signed. I wonder if a previous version of Webvisum would work with Waterfox--the one that is unsigned. If it can be made to do so, that would be a great boon to anyone who is now having to pay for Renola or Capcha Be Gone.


Thanks for any help.

Version 18.04: Resource Monitor, StationPlaylist Studio, Windows 10 App Essentials #addonrelease

 

Hi everyone,

 

I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of 18.04 revision of the following add-ons:

 

 

The biggest change is how it’ll detect Windows 10 releases. For example, some of you reported that you are running a public release of Windows 10 yet the add-on said you’ve got an Insider Preview build; this has been corrected. Also, this is the last release series to support Windows Server 2003, Vista and Server 2008 (or a rule of thumb: anything earlier than Windows 7 SP1).

 

 

With this version, NVDA will detect background library scans when Studio starts, and some issues related to taking playlist snapshots has been resolved. It also brings internal changes to add-on update feature.

 

 

NVDA will now track UIA drag events. Also, NVDA will not announce background notifications if it comes via UIA notification event. Speaking of this event, some more tweaks were done to catch corner cases.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Accessible EPUB Reader

Giles Turnbull
 

I also use QRead for PDF and ePub books and heartily recommend it.

Whilst Adobe Digital Editions is accessible for reading a book, I worried about books that wouldn't let me copy any text from them at all. I'm doing an MA course starting in October and will need to copy and paste some bits of text to use in assignment papers etc. I found advice about using Calibre Book Management and a plugin to rip the copy protection off encrypted books, but I couldn't get that to work for me.

When you try and copy even a single word from the Adobe DE program it immediatley unselects it so it can't be copied. I did however realise that I can use the NVDA speech viewer to achieve the same result! In Digital Editions you can navigate by word, by line or do a read all, and the Speech Viewer picks it all up and it can be coppied and pasted from there :)

Hope that's helpful for anybody else needing to copy parts of rights protected books (for legitimate reasons) :)

I do have an add on but as has been said before, it can say what you like, but its not actually confirming a shortcut has actually worked. The basic code looks very simple to customise though. I may have the add on archived around but its set for cut  paste copy etc at the moment and will report the keys for these even if the function is not available in the software. There was an attempt to write a more intelligent way, but it turned out to be slow and triggered spurious memory errors in word.

Hello Jacob,


I don't know why it gave me an error here.

However, it was an experiment, because I'm very phappy with Qread and Edge, which has proved to be really good at the job.


I read ebooks on my android phone only when I want to listen to them, because I prefer braille and that I can only really do on this pc.

My braille display doesn't have a keyboard, so it's hard to navigate books with ti.

Besides that, doesn't acrobat reader DC offer epub reading?

I am also pretty sure both chrome and edge browsers can load these

transfer it to my android phone, and go from there.

Azardi didn't work for me at all on Windows10. In fact, it didn't

Hi Ollie! My pleasure to see you here sometime.

EPUB FileReader seems supports from windows Xp to windows 8.1, and I don't understand what version of .Net Framework is required.

On Windows 10 I use VitalSource Bookshelf. I never installed Azardi on windows 10 due on the download page I read that it works with Xp, Vista and Windows 7/8.

Cheers,
Chris.

I just installed it here on my windows 10 64 bit machine, and, while
it's own, initial interface doesn't seem to offer much in terms of
accessibility, if I just open an .epub file from windows explorer's
open with context menu, then it just seems to have converted the
contents into a form of webpage, but, not sure what this would
actually offer in terms of bookmarking, etc.?

Besides that, doesn't acrobat reader DC offer epub reading?

I am also pretty sure both chrome and edge browsers can load these
file types, but, to be honest, if I want to read an ePub eBook, then I
transfer it to my android phone, and go from there.

Stay well

Hey again, Cris,


What's Vitalsource Bookshelf supposed to do?

I installed it, created an account, but it seems not to be an ebook reader.

Can you read your own books with it, ore are you forced to borrow or buy theirs?

Ciao,

Ollie

Hey Chris,


Thanks for these treats!


I installed Epub File Reader, but I'm not sure it works in Win10.

Ciao,

Hi, everyone. Is there a good free EPUB reader that works on Windows 10
and is accessible with NVDA? I know you can read EPUB files with
Microsoft Edge, but I was unsure of how well that works since I don't
use Edge very much at all. I have Adobe Digital Editions, and reading
books is accessible, but the list of books in my library isn't. It
doesn't read any of the information about the book, so I have to use OCR
to see which book I'm focused on, which is really annoying. I do like
how Adobe Digital Editions syncs all books I add to my library with my
Adobe account, but I'm willing to do without that if there's a more
accessible alternative. Does anyone know of one? Thanks.
