Have you had any usb headphones plugged in lately?
I notice on some 7 machines the poor thing can get really confused sometimes, depending on the hardware its using.

NVDA is speaking fine now yesterday it kept double talking so shut it down for a couple hours since a reboot did no good but sounds lost are the ping it makes when am at the top or bottom of a document as well as the sound it makes if try to do something it doesn't want me to do!

How this works depends on the hardware and the drivers I seem to remember. Dell machines use several different ways in different models, unfortunately. The most annoying one for me is when sightees use the machines and use all manner of ways to turn off the sound, including the screenreader which means first going through all the ways they may have used from simply turning off the speakers and pulling out the jack to tray icons turning the volume right down or worse messing with lots of settings till nothing works correctly!

Danni,

If it turns out that your Windows sound output has been muted, be certain to ask your computer guy if there is a key or key sequence on your keyboard you can hit to unmute it (or to try to unmute it).

On my HP laptop, where I've turned off the "Quick Function Keys" feature so that I have access to the F keys "as God intended," the F6 key is the mute/unmute toggle. F7 is decrease volume and F8 is increase volume. All of these only serve those functions if I'm holding down the Fn key plus the previously noted key together. What's nice is even if the sound is muted, if you attempt to either increase or decrease volume it will unmute the sound as part of that.

Re: A recurring error with the latest master snapshot

Well, since I never leave my computer on for long, I'd never seen this at all. I found out quite early on that hibernate, standby and other ways to improve boot up time caused all sorts of problems in the long run, mostly issues with menus not being read or software just not working or lagging.
With a machine with an ssd its false economy in my view to use these modes.

Hi Marcia,
Ah, something I have experienced before. This dialog usually means that NVDA
cannot work well with certain applications or might not behave correctly
under some circumstances. Usually restarting your computer fixes this
problem.
Technical: somehow, NVDA Helper is unable to hook into deeper event
processing routines. I think numerous issues were raised on GitHub regarding
this problem.
Cheers,
Joseph

Firstly have a look at it with the logging level set to debug, as this may
well show up more detail. I certainly get no such error here on the latest
master installed copy The windows internal number is correct though, as
this is just an internal designation.

If you are bored easily stop reading now as I'm pasting my debug log with no
errors and the add ons listed for comparison.

I will paste my log below, but the issue here is that every time NVDA is

sound. Not sure what the error means. It's strange that it shows me using
Windows 6.1--I'm using 7. Didn't know there was even such a thing as

Having a problem with FF and NVDA

Lino Morales
 

I really don’t know if its an NVDA or an FF issue or not, but I’ve been having a really bad problem when I write any edit fields. I’m running FF 60.01. NVDA reads what I type in very slowly. I don’t have this problem in MS Edge. I’ve even uninstalled FF from scratch and deleting my app data for Firefox. Anybody experiencing this? Thanks..

Hi all,

I enjoy reading news via Google's news page news dot google dot com.
But for a while now that page had been changed to appear less accessibly in Firefox. I shared my feedback with Google and they promised an update was coming. Well it apparently has!

I have Windows 7 on this laptop and Firefox 59.02, and am using NVDA 18.1.

The page that loaded when I typed news.google.com is laid out very nicely with headings marking all section titles and links placed on each story and news source listed under each heading. The placement of a link saying more (with section title following) might be better placed under the list of news stories (in my opinion) but it is also fine as it is.
I wanted to share with you NVDA users in case you, like me, had switched to Chrome for viewing the news page back when the less accessible news page launched. It's nice to know that we can use either Firefox or Chrome for Google's news page, and that Google fixed the problem.

Here is the url copied from my viewing, since others' preferences might display something else:

NVDA w/VMware horizon

Guy Schlosser
 

Hi all, got some good news, and just wondering about NVDA with VMware Horizon. I recently landed a technical support job with a company called Transcom. I will be helping phone and Internet customers troubleshoot their issues with getting on line, phone troubles, virus removal’s, etc. The catch is, they use a system called VMware horizon that you log into, in order to access the customer portal. Does NVDA work in this kind of environment? The portal itself is web-based, using Google chrome. I know that NVDA will probably have to be installed in the virtual environment, but are there any other accessibility challenges that could arise? Thanks in advance for any help or insight. Have an awesome memorial day weekend, and stay safe if you’re going anywhere.

Thanks,

Guy


Re: sounds ?

Danni
 

I don't remember why I shut it down the first time but rebooted twice because NVDA was not reading my documents properly, I don't know how to explain other than to say it would read a line and then nothing even though I knew there was something there and I tried maximizing the document but it didn't fix the issue and I also noticed that it kept reading things in double and when I rebooted heard the sound it made when shutting down twice!
 
I'll check volume settings since I tried checking sounds in control panel and found nothing to fix!

Do other sounds work?  I think the sound you are describing is one Windows sound, which isn't working.  This sounds to me like the kind of problem that should be solved by running a restore point.  If you don't have one, I'm not sure how you might solve the problem.  In future, please describe the problem in detail as you did in this message.  Based on your current description, most of my previous message appears not to apply.  This isn't that Windows sounds aren't working in general.  One Windows sound may not be and I addressed that in this message.

Danni,

         If it turns out that your Windows sound output has been muted, be certain to ask your computer guy if there is a key or key sequence on your keyboard you can hit to unmute it (or to try to unmute it).

         On my HP laptop, where I've turned off the "Quick Function Keys" feature so that I have access to the F keys "as God intended," the F6 key is the mute/unmute toggle.  F7 is decrease volume and F8 is increase volume.  All of these only serve those functions if I'm holding down the Fn key plus the previously noted key together.  What's nice is even if the sound is muted, if you attempt to either increase or decrease volume it will unmute the sound as part of that.

Another way to do that is to browse to a file, and press shift + applications, and then the letter A and the path will be in the clipboard.

I am trying to get clear about what's being asked here.

If it's how to get the path to a file you can do a Cortana/Windows search for the file, then when it shows up in the results and you have focus on it hit the menu/applications key or SHIFT+F10 and select "Open File location" from the pop up menu.  You'll open file explorer for the folder in which that file is located, with focus on that file, and can get the full path, including the file name, using the Copy Path button in the Home tab [or just hit ALT+H,CP].  You can then paste this where you need it.  One word of warning, though, it encloses the entire path in quotation marks, an example of which is:

"C:\Users\Public\Documents\BriTechGuy\Toolbox\Carry_With_Programs\Search_Everything\Everything-1.4.1.877.x64-Setup.exe"

You may need to remove those.

If you're trying to find task scheduler using Quentin's windows search method is the fastest way directly to it.

Re: Chatty infty and math with nvda

hbentley@...
 

HI Erik, 

I've used nvda and chattyinfty for math, but it won't help you that much without inftyreader.  You need to convert the documents to a format that chattyinfty can read, for it the latter to be of any use.  This is what InftyReader does, (very well).

The setup I use now is I convert the documents from the pdf with embedded text set inftyreader, and set the output to .xml, which can be opened by microsoft word.  You need to purchase MathType, and install it in Microsoft word, then download a free toolbar, in addition, called Central Access Toolbar, or CAT for short.., here's the link.. while you're there, download central access reader... Google Link to Central Access Toolbar, (I Couldn't Find it online anymore, but I'm sure its out there somewhere): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1utQC3vuq1GqgsRUJo6yfoZM_mVf44df0 and Central Access Reader:    
http://archive.org/download/CARSetup64/CAR_Setup_64.exe


CAT has to be installed in Microsoft Word, and what you do is recognize your pdf file with infty reader => export as .xml => open with MS Word=> click the "play" icon in the CAT toolbar under the "CAT" Tab, select "Recognized with InftyReader" from the drop down list on the right side of the screen, deselect "linearalize all equations", "unlinearize all equations", "highlight Equations", and "Convert OMML to Mathtype" - (we do the last step next, seperately), and hit the play button.  The plugin will transform your document into a well formatted version.

Next Hit the Mathtype Tab, (purchase here: https://store.wiris.com/en), click "convert equations" and make the following selections: 


Then wait for Mathtype to process your document, (much better to install Mathtype on a drive with as much space as possible, as it is kind of a memory hog).  

Wait for mathtype to finish converting, save document as .docx format, (you can do this before converting as well).

The open Central Access Reader, click the "plus" icon near the top left, and upload the .docx document you just saved... It will load to CAR and you can read it beautifully in this free application, much better than chattyinfty.

Let me know if you run into any trouble!!

Hi all,

I would like to get a head start on next semester's math.  I have chatty infty and nvda.  Do I need any add-ons?  Is any one else using this setup who can give me some insider tips?

I haven't even got my computer set up.  It's a weekend project and I just haven't gotten around to it.

Thanks for any advice.

Best,

Erik

Re: sounds ?

Do other sounds work?  I think the sound you are describing is one Windows sound, which isn't working.  This sounds to me like the kind of problem that should be solved by running a restore point.  If you don't have one, I'm not sure how you might solve the problem.  In future, please describe the problem in detail as you did in this message.  Based on your current description, most of my previous message appears not to apply.  This isn't that Windows sounds aren't working in general.  One Windows sound may not be and I addressed that in this message.

Re: sounds ?

You said you had to reboot a number of times yesterday.  Why?  Did you have freezes?  If you suddenly lose Windows sounds, and everything else works properly, you can look in the volume control settings to see what the volume level is for those sounds and, if there is a mute check box, that it is unchecked.  But this may be a problem, if you had an improper shutdown, caused by something else like a registry proboem.  You may want to check the volume control settings first.  If they are correct, if you have a system restore point or a you run a registry backup program, running a backup or a system restore point from before the problem may well be the easiest solution.  if you don't have something like this available, you should.  It's very important.  You never know when it may save you a lot of work and annoyance.
 
Regarding volume control settings, the easiest thing to do is probably to hold the Windows key, type r then release both keys.  Type sndvol in the run dialog, and press enter.  When the volume control opens, tab around and see what you see for Windows sounds.

What generation of Windows are you using.  It may be slightly different on Windows 7 than Windows 10, for instance.

Also, what is the make/model of your computer and did it come with function keys that were mapped to doing things like muting, increasing/decreasing volume, increasing/decreasing screen brightness, etc.  You may be able to exploit those, but you'd have to know which are which for your specific make/model.

Danni,

         If it turns out that your Windows sound output has been muted, be certain to ask your computer guy if there is a key or key sequence on your keyboard you can hit to unmute it (or to try to unmute it).

         On my HP laptop, where I've turned off the "Quick Function Keys" feature so that I have access to the F keys "as God intended," the F6 key is the mute/unmute toggle.  F7 is decrease volume and F8 is increase volume.  All of these only serve those functions if I'm holding down the Fn key plus the previously noted key together.  What's nice is even if the sound is muted, if you attempt to either increase or decrease volume it will unmute the sound as part of that.

I've not had this happen before so I have no clue if I have that specific key or not so I'll ask my computer guy about it or check my settings on the computer!

That's the presumption I'm operating on, too.   I have a friend who's an avid NVDA user and who's accidentally muted her Windows sound output in the past.  Luckily the keyboard she has actually has a dedicated button for mute/unmute that toggles the sound on if its off and off if its on.

Many computers can do this via hitting the Fn key along with the correct F key across the top.
