Hi Adriani

 

I have just added a link to the google translate page for other languages on the main web page.

You can jump down by letter H to its heading then go down to the link then press the enter key where it will take you to another page.

 

For some reason i could not put in a plug in to do it and it wanted it on every page so have gone down this other route. There is a heading that says some thing like translate this website to another language and a link to the translate page. The default language is english and the website main page is already in the edit section to translate. it is then a matter of changing it to another language then having it translate to it. Just after the language combo box you want it to go to is where you can read it in another language. it also seems if you click on one of the links the next page is also translated but only on that page i have it pointing to off my website.

You will see what i mean when it is translated.

 

 

 

it may help? for people where english is not there first language like mine.

 

Not sure if the steps on what to do is enough or should i add a little more or hopefully it is clear enough on what to do.

Dear Gene,

 

thank you for your great job. This is very important for the whole community. I have forwarded your links to the german community and in the translations group.

 

I hope I will find some time during next week to provide you some suggestions.

 

I propose to split the related sources in “development sources” and “user specific sources”. In this way we could add links to github and bitbucket as well.

Hi Adriani

There is a under construction page that went up tonight for nvda screen reader related resources off the main website at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net
When more resources get added there may be links off the nvda related web pages on my website that point to that page.

I have a rough idea of categories for the resources.
These can be changed  or added to.

Hi Adriani

 

Yep I am looking at doing a page for nvda screen reader related resources  which i will add it into which will be a separate web page. In that page I will break it down into say audio resources, video resources maybe nvda blogs? about using nvda? Not quite sure of other sections if i do and would be more a point to page but not jeffs one.

Even though he had a good site.

 

I am guessing we do  have links to other nvda resources like on you tube etc but not in the one place.

Hi Adriani

 

I was not sure if it worked on XP as when the directions went up i think at that time it had been tested on 7,8 and 10.

 

Would the directions from 10 also work on XP? to get into it as i used to do it the other way that was posted.

 

I have not any XP machines here now to test with.

 

The directions you gave are on the nvda audio tutorials page under trouble shooting.

Hi

 

the old way to get into safe mode in windows 10 can be found here at https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-boot-to-safe-mode-with-command-prompt-2624541

 

You will need a pair of eyes to do this plus you might not even have sound.

 

So am guessing you will need to burrow some eyes and give them directions to fix the problem.

Highlights of this release include Support for tables in Kindle for PC, support for HumanWare BrailleNote Touch and BI14 Braille displays, Improvements to both Onecore and Sapi5 speech synthesizers, improvements in Microsoft Outlook and much more.

Re: Attaching Speech Dictionaries to Profiles

Brian's Mail list account
 

Hi does this do what you want?
Beware though its only a dev version and when I installed it it locked things up but on reboot of windows it seems to work. No harm done apparently.
Hello Joseph and other reviewers.
After talking with this author, he as agreed in submiting his addon for review to be posted in the addons community website. I paste below the addon description, as written by Ricardo in the readme:
"This simple add-on makes it possible to create application-specific dictionaries for NVDA. To make use of the add-on, just go to the application you want a dictionary for, and press NVDA+shift+p. The normal NVDA dictionary dialog will open for you to add entries valid only for the active application (the application name should appear somewhere in the dialog title). The default add-on shortcut can be changed through NVDA's input gestures dialog: under configuration node, expand the node that says "Shows the application-specific dictionary dialog"."
Although this is a feature that could be added to the NVDA core, we might use this addon for now.
This is the Github repo: https://github.com/RickLeon/applicationDictionary
And this is version 1.2-dev, ready for testing: https://github.com/RickLeon/applicationDictionary/releases/download/1.2-dev/applicationDictionary-1.2-dev.nvda-addon
This author has a similar addon for profile-specific dictionaries, but it is not ready for review yet.
Regards.

Hi All,



I wanted to confirm that it is still not possible to attach speech
dictionaries to profiles in NVDA. This would be extremely helpful in
situations where one might want to eliminate words being spoken in specific
applications that are redundant and not necessarily needed to be heard.



Thanks,

Hi everyone,

 

Well I was a little slow to post about NVDA 2018.2rc1, and before I had a chance, rc2 is out!

 

This is a release candidate, which means that unless any critical issues are found, this will be identical to the final 2018.2 release.

 

Highlights of this release include Support for tables in Kindle for PC, support for HumanWare BrailleNote Touch and BI14 Braille displays, Improvements to both Onecore and Sapi5 speech synthesizers, improvements in Microsoft Outlook and much more.

 

You can download NVDA 2018.2rc2 here: https://www.nvaccess.org/download?nvdaVersion=2018.2rc2

 

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Re: Windows 10 dictation feature and NVDA

Brian's Mail list account
 

At a guess this is controlled by Windows and the software supported by it.
I think it may grow, but the best folk to ask are Microsoft, I'd imagine, if it is only working in Microsoft products then that is a big clue.

Hi,




I have gotten kind of used to using this where you press windows+h and the system will allow dictation and it inserts it into an email or notepad or word pad and the like.




My question is this. I can't seem to get it to insert the spoken text into a program like Jarte or other word processors. It won't insert it into website edit fields either.




Is there a way to enable this using NVDA?




Thanks.

Re: Attaching Speech Dictionaries to Profiles

I am told there is an add on that allows custom dictionaries for apps. Look on the add on list. I think the plan is to trial it in an add on to see if it causes any issues first.

Hi All,



I wanted to confirm that it is still not possible to attach speech
dictionaries to profiles in NVDA. This would be extremely helpful in
situations where one might want to eliminate words being spoken in specific
applications that are redundant and not necessarily needed to be heard.



Thanks,

Jonathan

Re: what's with cortana

Again I asked her about the weather in Chicago. No issues. She gave me the
correct weather.

To be honest, I havn't bothered with a voice assistant so far but this
dark sky thing seems to be a skill, ms seems to be trying to coppy
amazon's skills.

Of course the fact the alexa system may or may not have several bugs the
latest is that if a word sounds like to activate it it may just do that
and send your recorded conversations who knows exactly where aparently
through 2 confirmation prompts.

Of course the issue with these voice assistants is that depending how
you say something will depend on what it does.

For myself, still on 7 even on 10 I have turned most of that off.

Technically I do log in with a microsoft account for apps so technically
I have access to most cloud systems if I so wish to have it.

However having never gone to the i device or droid just yet and still
being a keyboard user the work I do does not require me to access the
msn weather site.

The msn weather site is not as acurate as others can be like weather
underground.

Hi list have been noticing something strange about cortana the last couple
days. When I ask it to give me the weather instead of cortana coming up
with a search result it says an app or a site called dark skys might be
able to help would I like to access it? What is wrong with whatever
cortana used to get the weather? Is it down? It doesn’t happen all the
time. Very very strange. Anyone else have this issue?

Re: Bug Reporting for NVDA - Do Step-by-Step Instructions Exist?

On Github, you don’t remove the bug, it just gets closed and that’s it, so that if need be, it can be reopened.

Hi,
To the original question at hand: you need a GitHub account in order to post
bug reports.
Typically, one would sign up for GitHub, then go to
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new and fill out the form there.
I will cover this in more detail during NVDACon 2018.
Cheers,
Joseph

I wasn't talking about the groups.io website, and I am indeed one of the
people who has never interacted with it and has no intention of doing so.

You're right about "if it's not email, it doesn't exist", because as far as
I'm concerned, I have subscribed to a mailing list and I interact with it
through my email client. I'm sure many others here have the same opinion
regarding lists vs. forums.

I was talking about the NVaccess website, which is the primary source of all
information about NVDA, and is where I found out how to subscribe to this
mailing list.
