Re: NVDA from bed

Brian's Mail list account
 

I'm not sure about the control of linux machines, but have you maybe considered a normal desktop with radio keyboard or even a wire linked one. I certainly do this in my bed. One could easily have it within reach of the bed to turn it on or off and also feed it through decent speakers and use it for audio as well. If its a quiet pc, which many now are, then its ideal and less prone to issues than laptops of any power. No problems keeping it cool either.

Hello,

because of problemds with my legs and feet (I'll be 82 in July.) I have to keep my fet elevated most of the time. I have
a hospital bed for that porpose. I'm loking for a small and light lapotop on which I could install NVDA and a ssh
program to access the Linux machines on my network. Which ssh program works best with NVDA? I am deaf-blind, so I will
be using a Focus 14 Braille display. I know
this works through USB. Can NVDA handle a bluetooth connection? The ssh program will be used to access my Linux
maschines. I will use the laptop for accessing my Twitter account with EasyChirp. It will be connected to my router
through wi-fi.

Thanks for any suggestions,
John

Re: Tesseract update

Brian's Mail list account
 

This did come up some time back and as I recall the new version is a very big file and totally different to the current one in nvda, and was thought a bit over the top considering the paid for ocrs out there at reasonable costs, if this has changed then I may have missed it.
Of course it could be that somebody could implement the windows ocr in a third party app, but I've never seen this done, so may well be exclusive to Microsoft. Certainly, on the I phone I believes its used in the Microsoft Seeing AI ap.

What Level of Support Does NVDA Offer for Arabic, Persian, and Urdu?

Saaqib Mahmuud
 

Hello NVDA Group mates! How are you?

I am a visually impaired person from Pakistan, with an MPhil qualification in mathematics and working as a college-level math teacher.

My question is, what level of support does the NVDA screen reader provide with Urdu, Persian, and Arabic texts?

Is it NVDA reliable enough for reading the Quran character by character, word by word, sentence by sentence, line by line, paragraph by paragraph, and using SayAll, just as it is possible to read through materials in the English language?

Can one read through the poems and ghazals of such Urdu poets as Iqbal and Ghalib with the help of the NVDA?

What additional software is needed, if any, for best results?



Regards.

Sincerely,
Saaqib Mahmood,

but numberic 7 will be recognised as home 1 as end etc.
this is in windows 10
also when i press the fn key makes no difference.
also when i press letter j or k or l etc with fn key pressed keeps j or k or l etc.
it don't want to do what i want!

With NVDA keyboard layout set to “Desktop” , those are the correct keys for when numlock is off.  You should get the number keys when numlock is on.  How does NVDA input help report those keys when numlock is off?  If you press the numpad Home key for example, NVDA input help should  say “Numpad 7 moves the review cursor to the current navigator object and speaks it”.  If it reports Home, End etc then it would appear that the numeric keypad is not being correctly recognised.

When you are using an external USB numpad you have to switch to desktop keyboard in the NVDA keyboard settings. I assume your numpad will then work as expected when numlock is turned off.

Those aren't screen review commands.  Those are commands to move and read information on a screen such as in a word processing program where a cursor is present.  Such commands are Windows commands and will work regardless of screen-reader being used and regardless of keyboard layout. If a sighted person uses such commands with no screen-reader being used, the sighted person will move the cursor in the same ways, right and left arrow, by character, control right and left arrow, by word., etc.

Hi Paul,

If you are using NVDA with the laptop layout on a Dell computer, you can navigate the screen with the arrow keys. I have never used the FN key with letters to do this. In fact, an NVDA modifier is not necessary.
Left or Right Arrows read the screen letter by letter.
Add Control to the left and right arrow keys and read the screen word by word.
Up or Down arrows read the screen line by line.
FN + Left Arrow is Home.
FN + Right Arrow is End.
FN + Up Arrow is Page Up.
FN + Down Arrow is Page Down.
Add Control to the Home or End commands above to move to the top or the bottom of the screen.
And finally, add Shift to the above commands to select text.

I've used these commands on Asus, Toshiba, Dell, and Lenovo laptops.

Each of these computers differ on how to make the Function Keys work without using the FN key. Look on line or read your manual to learn how to do it.

Hope this helps.
Suzy

Problem with Eloquence for windows

Sky Mundell
 

Hello List. Sky here. I have a problem with eloquence for windows.  I upgraded to windows spring update, and it went well, but when I restarted, NVDA came up with SAPI 5 version of Eloquence, and it said, please register this product. When I went to activate the product, I was told that all of my licences had been activated.  When I hit the deactivate button, I got an error that says that your not connected to the internet, even though I am connected to the internet. What can I do? I have a difficult time with one core, and I am familiar with Eloquence because I used it in JAWS and Window-Eyes.  Any help you could give me would be appreciated!  Thanks, Sky.

Re: Tesseract update

Brandon Cross <bcross3286@...>
 

Why. I thought the addon would be deprecated in favor of the Windows 10 built in OCR. If you have the addon, disable or uninstall it, and use the same keystroke, and you will have results from the Windows OCR available in a virtual buffer. It works quite a bit better than the addon, and the result of the OCR is better as well.

Re: An omission in the NVDA interface and it's not standard

Gene
 

That isn't the purpose of such commands.  Keys that use control and other characters are intended to be used in the main program Window.  Control o for open, control s, for save, control f for find are all accelerator keys.  they aren't technically short cut keys.  Shortcut  keys work in menus.  So alt to open the menu and then f is a short cut key to open the file menu.  Alt f then a is a sequence of short cut keys after alt.  F opens the file menu and a opens save as in the file menu.  Accelerator keys don't use the menus at all.  They do something from in the main program Window, such as control n opening a new message in an e-mnail program.
 
The point of having accelerator commands announced when you move through a menu is so that you can know that they exist by moving through the menu.  I haven't used the new interface but if it is using dialogs instead of menus now, I don't know if accelerator commands can be announced when you move through a dialog.  One of these days, when I get a new computer, I'll look at changes in NVDA that are recent.  But I don't want to install service pack 1 on my Windows 7 machine.  There is one program that, though I almost never use it, doesn't work with service pack 1 and I don't want to lose access to it.  I almost never use my Windows 7 machine online and it meets my needs well without upgrading.

also not sure why it would make any difference how the property sheets were shown, you would simply go to a different tab by default with the command. I'm assuming that when in the  property sheet that controls many others, you would have a short cut put in as part of the text, unless my earlier comment about redefinition was more valid now.

If it is unlikely, is there some way new users should be alerted to look at
the documentation for such commands?  Perhaps some sort of information
should be included in the dialog that comes up when the program is run or
maybe there is a different way.  I didn't know about such commands for quite
awhile.  I learned how to use the menu in the documentation and I didn't
check farther because I had no reason to think there was anything to look
for.  I wonder how many people, such as I, who have a lot of experience with
Windows programs assume that no such commands exist because they expect to
see them somehow shown in the interface.

Every so often, when I look through the NVDA menu, I wonder why accelerator
commands aren't given.  these are usually commands such as control and a
character such as a letter or a number.  NVDA has lots of these commands,
usually being combinations of control NVDA key and a character such as a
letter or number.  The synthesizer dialog, for example, opens with NVDA key
control s.  The voice settings dialog opens with control NVDA key v.  Why
are none of these commands voiced when moving through the NVDA menu?  This
is an important way for those who know enough about Windows basics to know
what they mean to be made aware of such commands or to quickly review them
without the cumbersome need to look in documentation.  It also is standard
for menus to voice accelerator commands.

also not sure why it would make any difference how the property sheets were shown, you would simply go to a different tab by default with the command. I'm assuming that when in the  property sheet that controls many others, you would have a short cut put in as part of the text, unless my earlier comment about redefinition was more valid now.

Hi,

Ideally, a link to the user guide might help from Welcome dialog.

If it is unlikely, is there some way new users should be alerted to look at
the documentation for such commands?  Perhaps some sort of information
should be included in the dialog that comes up when the program is run or
maybe there is a different way.  I didn't know about such commands for quite
awhile.  I learned how to use the menu in the documentation and I didn't
check farther because I had no reason to think there was anything to look
for.  I wonder how many people, such as I, who have a lot of experience with
Windows programs assume that no such commands exist because they expect to
see them somehow shown in the interface.

Hi,

A few years ago there was a huge debate on the development channel regarding
how we can do this. But, as of today, it is highly unlikely that it can be
done due to vast paradigm shift that has just occurred on settings dialogs.

Cheers,

Every so often, when I look through the NVDA menu, I wonder why accelerator
commands aren't given.  these are usually commands such as control and a
character such as a letter or a number.  NVDA has lots of these commands,
usually being combinations of control NVDA key and a character such as a
letter or number.  The synthesizer dialog, for example, opens with NVDA key
control s.  The voice settings dialog opens with control NVDA key v.  Why
are none of these commands voiced when moving through the NVDA menu?  This
is an important way for those who know enough about Windows basics to know
what they mean to be made aware of such commands or to quickly review them
without the cumbersome need to look in documentation.  It also is standard
for menus to voice accelerator commands.

Re: NVDA Confuguration profiles and heading setting in google sheets

Quentin Christensen
 

If you can recreate the issue and then send me a copy of your NVDA log, I can see if there is anything in there which gives a clue.

One thing I have seen which sometimes gets a little funny is if you have NVDA set to use a Braille display; if you don't currently have the display connected or turned on, NVDA reverts to no braille, but it does on occasion spend longer looking for it than if you manually set the Braille device to no braille.

See https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/LogFilesAndCrashDumps for information about the log file.

Kind regards

Quentin.

About configuration profiles: I know that is very unlogical issue. I haven't seen similar complaints from anyone. However, When I just make a new confuguration profile without any reall change the speed is significantly changes. I don't know why it is the case or how I can solve it.

Re: Screen Curtain Feature

Quentin Christensen
 

In Windows, you can press WINDOWS+p to change the "Projector" settings.  At one point Windows 10 made it so that you couldn't set your computer to project to "second screen only" if there wasn't actually a second screen connected, but I just tried again and it will let me now.  As with changing resolution etc, I need to activate the "confirm changes" button after doing it or it will revert, but it is working on the latest fast insider build (which I think is still running the final April creators update).

So it looks like that could be worth another go for those on Windows 10.  For those on earlier versions of Windows, you should be able to do this as well.

Regards

Quentin.

I suppose if you could only brighten/dim the monitor, one could dim it all the way down so it is too hard for anyone to see.

I think those who ask for this are talking laptops really and that is the
problem mentioned. you really would like to turn off the monitor completely
in software to emulate what we do on a desktop with a button or not even
connect one.
 That is not possible.
 Maybe its something that can be designed into hardware, but I'd not expect
mainstream companies to do this unless its as a power saving feature when
streaming audio.

Hi Roger and all!

I installed Windows 10 1803 today as well.

It is the most snappy build of Win10 yet for me. I really like what they added in 1803 to the Windows defender. It installed without a hitch, and it works with NVDA.

Take care, everybody, I feel like a kid on Christmas LOL!

Enjoy the 1803 update!

Installed just fine here. It took a while, but these updates generally do. So far, I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary--and I'm glad to see that my volume wasn't tampered with, as has happened with a couple of others who installed it today.
