If you don't want to change the original, 2write something distinctive in the document and use the program's search.  I use the phrase begin here! to indicate where to resume again.

Subject: [nvda] Place markers

Hi, I got the ad on that somebody suggested on this list, and it does not seem to be able to add place markers in documents that you can edit.  What I was specifically looking for, was some way of keeping my place in a document even after I closed the file out but the basic form of notepad does not seem to be able to do this.  Any more ideas?

Re: Query colour of current text in web browser?

Gene
 

I haven't tested enough to say anything definite.  but on the one page I tested with Firefox, I saw formatting information.  On the page I tested with Chrome, I didn't.  Is this one more instance of Chrome not implementing accessibility as it should?

I don't know why you get that response.  I tried it before I sent my message.  What browser are you using?  I don't see why that would matter but I'm asking anyway.  Where were you on the web page when you issued the command?  Again, if you are somewhere on the page, and not in something like the address bar, I would expect the command to work.

Gene,

            I've just tried this on this multiple webpages and all NVDA keeps announcing is, "No Formatting Information."

            When in MS-Word, if I direct the NVDA navigator object to the mouse position and do NVDA+F afterward it does give me the formatting details. It's never doing that in any webpage.  What am I doing wrong?

Re: Query colour of current text in web browser?

I know, in word, for example, it will include colour info in formatting string, but, doesn't seem to happen in internet explorer - just tested, and it does in firefox, but, I, unfortunately, at times use both for testing things.

Either way, now that just tried it out in both, seems like it's an issue with IE, so, will bear that in mind before checking on any dynamic style changes, etc.

Thanks

Re: Query colour of current text in web browser?

 

Gene,

           I thought I had tried this in both Firefox and Chrome, but now that I've made sure I've done both this appears to be some sort of issue with how NVDA and Chrome play together.  I am getting the expected result in Firefox.  I am always in an area with text visible where I can see the mouse pointer over it before I route NVDA to the location of the mouse pointer in either case.

Re: question regarding windows live mail

 

I can confirm that based upon Microsoft's own support release regarding the "change to outlook.com mail infrastructure" it is only their own e-mail addresses, which are those ending in @hotmail.com, @live.com, @msn.com, and @outlook.com that are affected as far as no longer being compatible with WLM 2012.

If your e-mail service provider continues to use either IMAP or POP either one is fully supported in WLM 2012 (and since it's not being updated except for security fixes it will continue to be supported in WLM 2012).

Re: code factory addons

Regarding the problem with Vocalizer for NVDA from Tiflotecnia, please contact us, since it is possible to have both products in the same NVDA installation.

Hi, to the moderators of the list, why do you allow and advertise the codefactory addon if it is so buggy. Many have complained, and no answers have been given. Just about everyone who has bought the addon has complained of sound crackling, and I have a super complaint. When I install the addon it kills my other vocalizer addon, and removes it from the synthesizer list. Are you guys just not giving a care because you get 10% of the sale, or what. People spend good money for a voice and they expect it to work. I appreciate nvda and the work put in to it, it works great, but these people are slow to respond to tickets, and if you call them during over-seas business hours, the tech support team says they will open a trouble ticket and plays dumb like the issue hasn't hardly been reported

Hello!

As I don't know to wich message you're replying...

There are two different Vocalizer Expressive addons. One from Tiflotecnia, the oldest, and one from Code Factory.

It seems that after the instalation of bothe Code Factory addons, Vocalizer and Eloquence, our Vocalizer Expressive don't work. It is strange, since I have both in my machine...

I don't own the codefactory addon. However, I did atempt the trial version and it worked fine. I used it until it expired and didn't have a problem.

I too have both on my machine and they work just fine. The only thing I have an issue with is the Code Factory Eloquence and the crackling noises.

Hi! Yes you are right! The addon has stopped working because of following
reason:
The instant translate addon uses Google Translate API to translate text
across language. Now Google has changed the API and the addon can't use it.
The addon can't work until Google change the API again or the addon author
find another translate API.

I don't think that there is an alternative addon available at this time. I
suggest you to use other translation software such as QTranslate.
Hope that will help!

Re: AudioScreen add-on is no longer working

Jacob Kruger
 

It uses a form of the vOICe/seeingWithSound to render parts of the screen into audio soundscapes, as a form of sensory substitution:
http://www.nvaccess.org/audioScreen/

Primarily designed for use with a touch screen, but, can also be used along with the mouse, etc.

does nothing, makes no sounds, doesn't give me any feedback, etc.

Even it's other relevant key combinations don't seem to do anything, and
have tried uninstalling it, reinstalling, etc. etc., and doesn't seem to
make any difference.

As in, NVDA-key + alt + A does also not reflect any changes, any spoken
notification, etc.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

Or should I just try trashing NVDA's installation, and reinstall it from
scratch, since under my prior portable copy of NVDA, it does still work
as expected, but, since I specifically like the audio ducking feature of
an installation of NVDA, I want to stick to actual installation under
program files, etc.
