Hi Gene,
I will do the tutorial with NVDA, because of what you have to do to read the message. Everything works great with NVDA except to read the message LOL! I am still working with it to find a consistent way to do this. Thanks for asking, Gene, Take care.

Hi david

Will you be using the nvda screen reader for the audio tutorial? so we
can hear what problems that we might have and how to get arond them? or
the other one?

I was just reading through the stuff from the drop box account to do
with the email client it sounds almost the same as out look.ocm in a
way. I might even have a look and set up a account with nvda to see what
has to be done when I get some free time.

Hi,
When you are using the win10 mail app, your contacts are imported into
the people app. So, you need to use the people app for your contacts
and addresses, and the mail app to work with the messages. So, you
have the people app and the mail app working together and you should
have them both running at the same time. The Calendar app is very
closely related to the mail app as well. So really, to have it all,
you need the mail, people, and calendar apps running all at the same
time. This is how it differs to other clients. You need three apps
running to have the whole picture.

Jacob,

Since David Moore has also posted elsewhere about this he is
using the new Win10 mail app that ships with every Win10 machine and
shows up on the start menu out of the box.

It's got little in common with earlier e-mail clients other
than the fact that it is used to read mail.


I'm still not able to get message text read using NVDA and the
Win10 mail app, but I'm presuming that this is operator error of some
sort.

Re: embedded object in Firefox

George <slr1bpz@...>
 

Gene,
 
I’m sure that the method used to remove the linefeed character doesn’t matter but here’s how I did it.
I copied the entire link to the clipboard.
I opened a new notepad plusplus document and pasted the link into it.
Next, I deleted the linefeed character and copied the link to the clipboard.
Finally, I opened firefox, pressed ctrl plus l, pasted the link into the URL edit box and pressed enter.
The link worked at that point.

I don't know why George could reach it.  I couldn't and I didn't include the return.  But the method he described or some variation is worth trying on any embedded objects where the most straightforward method won't work.  I've used such methods on many embedded objects.

Yes, thanks, this does the job.

Glad you were able to access the url. Others said they could not, even

Hello Cearbhall,

I'm in the U.S.  I'm running the same version of firefox as you but I am
running Windows 7 home premium with all updates and NVDA 2016.1.

The link you sent worked for me when I eliminated the linefeed character
after the equals sign.
I played several samples.  Here's how I did it.
1.  Arrow to the unavailable embedded object.
2.  Route the mouse to the embedded object with nvda plus numPad slash.
3.  Left click by pressing numPad slash.
I tried three samples and they all played for me using this method.

Give this method a go and let us know if it works on your system.

Good luck,
George

Hi,

I found a problem in Firefox when attempting to listen to a sample of an
audio book in the BorrowBox library system. I don't know if this is an NVDA
problem or exclusively a Firefox Flash Player issue. or if Bolinda need to
do something with their Java script. I should mention that the sighted user
has no problem playing the audio sample using a mouse.

I am using Windows 10,, NVDA 2016.1 and Firefox46.1 on a desktop PC.

If List members would like to see the problem for themselves I recommend the
following url:
https://fe.bolindadigital.com/wldcs_bol_fo/b2i/productOverview.html?b2bSite=
4834&browseItemId=366096&fromPage=1
It is not necessary to sign in to sample the reading of a title.

Here is a typical audio book display:

--Start of clip -----------------------
link graphic Railway Viaduct
embedded object unavailable (this should say "Preview" but doesn't!) Link
Reserve On Loan, Available on 22/05/16 Link Railway Viaduct Link Edward
Marston Read by Sam Dastor Crime & Thriller, Historical Fiction eAudiobook -
Unabridged ---end of clip ------------------

The player for the audio sample is activated by an "embedded object" that is
flagged by NVDA as "not being available". The BorrowBox help page advises
that Adobe flash must be active to enable audio sampling of each title. I
have Adobe flash installed and active. For example, I can play any song in
YouTube in Firefox without any problem.

After many weeks of failing to play the preview, I found the following
workaround using NVDA:

From the top of the web page select eAudio if not already selected. Then
press "g" to find a book title. If the next   object after pressing
down-arrow once is "embedded Object" then you have an audio book and we can
start.

Here is the full sequence of steps:
1. Press G for the graphic of the book title; 2. Press down-arrow once to
the embedded object. You should hear "Embedded Object not available"; 3.
Press NVDA + numpad Enter to activate the embedded object. You should hear
"Embedded Object Unavailable Activate"; 4. Press right arrow once. You
should hear ""Space"; 5. Press the space bar  to start and stop the sample
audio of the narrator speaking.

If pressing the space bar does not act as a toggle and the enter key does
not do the job either:
6. Press right arrow once;
7. Press space bar or main keyboard enter to play and stop playing the audio
sample.

Can anyone advise what to do about this?
A. Is it an NVDA problem?
B. Is it a Firefox problem?
c. Is it a BorrowBox problem for the developer Bolinda to see to?


All the best,

Cearbhall

or i can press application key and select open with.
between different programs select libreoffice writer to open my document.
but only i have libreoffice in my system and it recognizes the type of

libreoffice opens them without any issue.
which version of libreoffice do you use?
hope that my suggestions help you.

Re: setting up the people app on windows 10

 

Mr. Gaff, most average people don't worry about this, period.  The security in place in any commercial data center is far more robust than what's on your own local machine and hackers target those, too.

What is anyone going to do with your, or my, or anyone's contacts list that requires any real worry?  If people want random e-mail addresses these are so readily available by so many means that worrying about their acquisition is a complete waste of time.  You simply can't stop it.

The world has moved away from POP because IMAP and synchronization is incredibly important in today's mobile world.  That trend isn't going to reverse.

Re: Cannot read PDF documents with NVDA

 

I have occasionally had issues with both "pure image" PDFs that are images of text, just like anyone does, and also some OCR-ed stuff where the OCR was less than robust.

I have taught my clients to get around this by using a now discontinued, but still downloadable, product from Tracker Software in Canada called PDF XChange Viewer.  It is not generally accessible on the whole as a substitute for Adobe Reader, but what's necessary to OCR a document and save it is.  It uses a menu driven system that's like any other typical Windows program as far as the file menu goes, so all you have to do is open the file, run the OCR process, then save it afterward to keep the newly generated text layer.  The command to OCR a file is CTRL+SHIFT+C once the file is open.  The default settings give awfully good accuracy.  It also supports a number of languages besides English, but you have to download some of the more unusual ones if you want those.  I downloaded Swedish a couple of months ago when trying to help someone out.

I never want my email address book stored online by any email system, as this is far too hackable as Yahoo and BT found out.
Remember a person has all day every day to hack into your online address book but if its on your own computer and its off part of the time nobody can get at it. as I do not use any other devices that are not pcs, I can easily simply swap the files between them on the local network.
Everyone goes on about how convinient this synchronising is, but is it really worth the worry to the average person?

One big caution on the "automatic import" of contacts for the People app is this only works if your e-mail client was set up (or capable of) using the contacts associated with your e-mail account and syncing them.

There are a number of e-mail clients that don't work that way, and when I was last setting up Thunderbird it didn't work that way. Just a few days ago I had to tweak a client's Thunderbird setup because the e-mail account she had been using through an ISP no longer exists, and she was terrified that all her contacts were going to go when that account went. They didn't, though, because her contacts (or, perhaps, addresses - I can't remember which terminology Tbird uses) are stored local to Tbird and are not synced with her e-mail accounts. Since I'm the one who installed Tbird for her several years ago and I know I didn't change any defaults related to how contacts/addresses are handled, it appears that they are managed locally.

When that's the case, you need to make certain to export from your e-mail client and import via the web interface to the contacts for the given e-mail account you're going to be adding to the mail app, and, by extension, the People and Calendar apps. Whether you do this prior to adding it or after will be irrelevant because as soon as those contacts are imported into the contacts list maintained by your email server they will sync with the People app.

I hasten to add this is also likely only applicable to IMAP access, though I'm not 100% certain on that.

the document in Kurzweil 1000 and it will give you a text
representation of the document.

facing
is reading pdf documents with NVDA. On the adobe reader, or adobe

reader, NVDA reads absolutely nothing. I have to work everyday with
those

lectures
or books in pdf format, but I cannot access them.
So, could somebody help me with this problem because it is very important

me. Every answer is appreciated.

Hi:
I have tried the insert-f hotkey in all three web browsers and have
also found that it works in all but Google Chrome.

Re: setting up the people app on windows 10

 

One big caution on the "automatic import" of contacts for the People app is this only works if your e-mail client was set up (or capable of) using the contacts associated with your e-mail account and syncing them.

There are a number of e-mail clients that don't work that way, and when I was last setting up Thunderbird it didn't work that way.  Just a few days ago I had to tweak a client's Thunderbird setup because the e-mail account she had been using through an ISP no longer exists, and she was terrified that all her contacts were going to go when that account went.  They didn't, though, because her contacts (or, perhaps, addresses - I can't remember which terminology Tbird uses) are stored local to Tbird and are not synced with her e-mail accounts.  Since I'm the one who installed Tbird for her several years ago and I know I didn't change any defaults related to how contacts/addresses are handled, it appears that they are managed locally.

When that's the case, you need to make certain to export from your e-mail client and import via the web interface to the contacts for the given e-mail account you're going to be adding to the mail app, and, by extension, the People and Calendar apps.  Whether you do this prior to adding it or after will be irrelevant because as soon as those contacts are imported into the contacts list maintained by your email server they will sync with the People app.

I hasten to add this is also likely only applicable to IMAP access, though I'm not 100% certain on that.

Most of these I've tried with the current ocr add on end up as Klingon!

However, its a great pity more of the ocrs do not allow one to open pdfs easily and ocr them.

Hi Afrim:
Sometimes a PDF document is a picture of the text rather than the text
itself, so you will have to do OCR on it to make it read.
