Re: Dropbox preferences anomoly..

Rui Fontes
 

Hello!

Only one small problem...
When tabing and lands in the list of tabs, NVDA does not announce the tab name. If you arrow left or right the names are announced.

Windows 10 1803; NVDA last Next; Dropbox 50.4.71.

I'm told by several people this works, but I'm on windows 7 and with dropbox 50, it appears blank to me.
Here is the log. If you hate these then stop reading. I'm loathe to post a ticket as at the moment I'm not sure if its windows, dropbox or nvda which is the problem here.

How would I know if BlindSpot has updated recently? Using it with NVDA at least, I can't get my Spotify Playlists to load as before.

There is a new version of this just out. However some say it actually works better on phones than on the pc, which is odd as on a phone its getting photo and on the pc, one assumes its a scanned in image already.

Hello Vlad

I bought the KNFB Reader app, but I am rather disappointed with it. It does not at all retain any semblance of formatting. It throws all the text into one ginormous paragraph. I don't think this is what you want.

Maybe you can look at the Office Lens app which is free and available for Windows 10 as well as for smart phones. It retains formatting. It supports language switching and if you are using a synthesiser which also supports language switching, different languages will be spoken correctly. The OCR quality is quite good. Even though it is free, it is better in my opinion than KNFB in every respect except for one: KNFB does the OCR on your local machine or mobile device, while Office Lens does it in the cloud. But I don't think this advantage KNFB has justifies the price. Give Office Lens a bash and see if it will work for you. It really is the best option that I am aware of.

If you can use a mobile device for your OCR, you could also try Prizmo Go which is also free and retains formatting. I am quite impressed with it.

Kind regards

Christo

Dear all,

I need to find a way to transform image pdf files into text. These are mostly books that have been scanned a while ago, but I haven't had the time and patience to find a solution. Now I really need to do something about this, for professional reasons.

I found this Windows 10 app called KNFB Reader, which seems to do exactly that. However, since this is a rather expensive app, I'd like to ask those who have already used it a few things if I may:
1. How does this app deal with multi-lingual documents? Is it possible to choose two or more recognission languages for the same book? Most of my books are manuals. I am a language teacher and it is very important that both languages used in a book be accurately detected.
2. Is formatting being retained, at least in part?
3. Are there any alternatives to this application? It seems to be the only accessible solution, but I might be wrong.

I would be very grateful if anyone could help me with this.

Most sincerely,

Vlad



You are invited: NVDACon 2018 - Future-Proofing NVDA, June 1-3, 2018

 

Dear NVDA community,

 

Please pass on the following invitation to many people as possible:

 

Dear NVDA users, developers, sponsors and others,

 

The NVDA community and NV Access would like to invite you to join us at NVDACon 2018: Future-Proofing NVD8, to be held on June 1-3, 2018 at NVDACon TeamTalk Server.

 

NVDACon (NVDA Users and Developers Conference) is an annual gathering of the NVDA community to discuss all things NonVisual Desktop Access, a free, open-source, community-driven screen reader for Microsoft Windows. Started in 2014, NVDACon has attracted participants from all over the world, as well as being a venue for reviewing NVDA’s progress, current features, and planning its future. Topics discussed at past conferences include using Google products, add-ons festival, Windows 10 support, DictationBridge, how community members can help develop NVDA without coding it and so on.

 

This year’s NVDACon theme is “Future-Proofing NVDA”. Today’s NVDA was possible thanks to investments in future-proofing the screen reader in the past. Today, with more people realizing how important accessibility is, and with fast pace of technical innovations, it is important that NVDA, too, react to changes in technology and mindset of users who expect the screen reader to become more integral in their lives in the future. At NVDACon 2018, several sessions, including talks by noted NVDA experts and a keynote by NV Access, will feature what the community is doing to future-proof NVDA, as well as what people inside and outside the community can do to help make technology equally accessible to more people.

 

For more information about NVDACon, including steps on how to join us, visit g. We the NVDA co9mmunity look forward to seeing you at NVDACon 2018!

 

Sincerely,

 

The NVDACon 2018 Organizers

 

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

The problem with all of these and of course the win10 and the add on for nvda is that its extremely time consuming. It would be really neet if you could just present something with a series of pdfs or one big one and come back leater to a workable file of text, even if the graphics and diagrams were missed out.
Not seen this on anything thus far, yet one might suppose those using pdf files might like to have this as a built in process. maybe it is in some pro version of the Adobe Suite, don't know. Certainly fine reader is used a lot by other ocr programs., Muy one issue for English is that i and l can get muddled.
I have a friend called Della, it always makes her Delia, and a nearby place called New malden is New Maiden. Which though can be funny is also a bit irritating!

Abbyy Finereader is not too expensive (around $200 uS as I recall for home users) and will do this. I'm probably going to buy it soon, myself. All reports I have had suggest it is fairly accessible, with some caveats that can be worked around.

Many thanks, I do appreciate your answer. Unfortunately, this won't work in my case, since the site only accepts files that do not exceed 64 MB.
But I do want to thank you for taking the time to get back to me.

Cheers,

Vlad.


Re: NVDA no longer gives feedback on copy, cut and paste as before

Actually I found clipspeak to be slow and buggy, in some cases giving errors in word. I use the dumb clipboard announcements add ons, there are several around but they are not inteligent, in that they do not inform if its worked or not.

Hi,


You need to download the "Clip Speak" add on to get NVDA to inform you
about when you perform the commands to copy, paste, select all.


Hope this helps?

What is it that you're trying to do?  It will certainly burn an MP4 to CD or DVD optical media.  If that's not what you're attempting to do that's a different story.  I really thought you were looking for something that can burn files to optical media.

Freemake video converter is only 9 bucks, it’s consider as a donation they give you a key.  It’s worth it if you burn a lot!

Ok,

 

I tried Anyburn and it says that an MP4 file is not supported. 

 

Thanks for the idea.

Can't get Spotify playlists loaded with BlindSpot

Gerardo Corripio
 

How would I know if BlindSpot has updated recently? Using it with NVDA at least, I can't get my Spotify Playlists to load as before.

Hi,


I used to use FreemakeVC for this but they have changed it some time back and it now places a "Freemake" watermark on the middle of the video.


Does anyone know of a good free accessible DVD burning software?  I am trying to burn from MP4 files at this time.


Thanks.

latest version of Tesseract OCR  on windows
What are you considering "the latest version"?   I can find Windows support for Windows binaries, as well as installers, for v3.5.1 plus 4.0 alpha here:

and, following one of the links there to UB Mannheim:  https://github.com/UB-Mannheim/tesseract/wiki
