Re: a page that makes nvda to stop speaking

 

But why try to use other screen reader if you can simply change the browser?
It's more practical and you won't have to improvise anything.
Remember you always can have 2 or more browsers on your computer and use them when, where and as you like.

First, you are right. The correct address is https://www.pontosmultiplus.com.br

When I type this in edge, nvda will say that the page is loaded.

So I start to arrowdown. I find a editbox and in the next arrowdown nvda stops speaking.

To get it back I have to close edge with alt + f4.

Re: IMPORTANT, quick responses required: any add-ons that are still not prepared for wxPython 4 besides Remote Support add-on?

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

I think once it hits master, people will find out. I imagine a lot of the add ons might seem to be fine, but even the authors, if they have not actually thought about old add ons for a while might well have forgotten about some gotchas in the code. all we users can do is use the add ons when the code hits master I suggest, and hope enough people out there either the original authors or somebody else can fix things for the important ones before a new nvda hits the streets. I think most here will feel more comfortable using master than next and thus although in the first instance this might cause some issues, its probably the fastest way to find the odd bug or incompatible add on. After all those who get an issue still have the last stable or a previous master to fall back on.

past few months.
2. Please post a notice regarding compatibility issues with current
Remote Support add-on so you can have time to write workarounds
prior to release of NVDA 2018.3.
3. Please let us (the community) post a notice regarding

If we don’t hear from you by June 30, 2018, I’ll post a notice on

4 is deployed to NVDA.

I do understand what I said above is very harsh and may have put

NVDA community said loud and clear for months how important this

To others: the day of reckoning has come. What I said above applies to
authors whose add-ons are considered important by the community yet
did not take any action to prepare for this day. In addition to
reassuring NV Access folks that we’re good to go, we need to reassure

potplayer: could be the best for visual impaired, but a question remain

Simone Dal Maso
 

Hello,
I am trying potplayer and well, I can say it is amazing.
Some features like automatically reading of subtitles throught speech synthesizer, report of messages and element throught UI automation, custom font and windows size, are only some really great features!
Unfortunately I have a question and I'd like to know if someone solved it:
suppose you open a playlist with 300 tv channels.
On vlc you press ctrl-l and it is possible to browse with arrow keys channels and press enter on one of it.
Here instead in Potplayer you can press pgUp/pgDown to change channel, but it is not very confortable if you have 300 channels! Pressing f6 it appears a window called playlist, but it is not possible to browse it.
Have you some solutions about this problem?
Thank you .


Re: IMPORTANT, quick responses required: any add-ons that are still not prepared for wxPython 4 besides Remote Support add-on?

 

Hello Joseph,

The add-ons I have seam to work OK under wxPython 4, except for Remote Access about which you already know. I have the following add-ons:

  • Emoticons v7.0
  • fakeClipboardAnouncement v1.0
  • GoldWave v18.03
  • Enhancement on poedit Access v3.3
  • Remote Access v2.1
  • RHVoice - a Russian speech synthesizer v0.2.161
  • Say Product Name and Version v1.0.2012060901
  • SpeechPlayer in Espeak v0.3
  • sysTrayList v2.3
  • Virtual Review v2.2
  • Windows 10 App Essentials v20180626-dev

I have a non-critical problem with the Emoticons add-on in relation to the emoticon selection insertion dialog, but I don't know if it is related to wxPython 4 or not. I can describe it in another message, if you wish.

______
Best wishes,
Kostadin Kolev

RES: [nvda] a page that makes nvda to stop speaking

Alexandre Alves Toco
 

That is pretty strange.

First, you are right. The correct address is https://www.pontosmultiplus.com.br

When I type this in edge, nvda will say that the page is loaded.

So I start to arrowdown. I find a editbox and in the next arrowdown nvda stops speaking.

To get it back I have to close edge with alt + f4.

Ok, let's see.
It seems like a flight company webpage. As far as I've seen, it works quite well without much problems.
Instead of what our friend wrote it doesn't showed any problem with NVDA, including stop speaking.
Guess it'd be a personal problem. :(

It's NVDA-ctrl-k to directly access keyboard settings, and you can also
get to preferences easier by hitting NVDA-n which gets you to the NVDA
menu. There's no need to go messing around in the system tray or
notification area or whatever we're supposed to call it this week.

Do you have
"Handle keys from other applications
Checked in the
"Keyboard settings"
dialog? Access it by pressing NVDA+shift+k, or by navigating to the
windows system tray with windows+b and arrowing until  you reach the
NVDA icon. Press enter on the icon and down arrow until you hear
"Preferences"
and then open that menu. The first item will be
"Settings"
and in there is the dialog you want.

Re: windows 7 and hims u2

 

There aresome good bluetooth speakers round, I use a kingone k5xx someone gave me from china.

However, my brother that has moved into a new house replaced the entertainment system for the tv with a soni bluetooth speaker and for its size it sounds like a full stereo except its not.

You can use a cord with 1/32 cm male tip at either end, going from your computer's headphone jack and to a stereo/boombox or amplified speaker, like a bluetooth speaker, or connect to a bluetooth speaker if your computer does bluetooth.
HTH.

Hello All,
Is there any way to get more than 100% volume in nvda?
trying to get my braille u2 hooked up, and I am almost deaf.
I need braille to get braille, lol.

Also do I use this same generic hims driver for a usb connection-- the same driver as most the other screenreaders?
thanks.

Re: windows 7 and hims u2

 

Hmmm well if you jack your volume in your master controler to 100 it will jack every sound to the max.

I have to settle for less to prevent dammage to things, an amp and speakers may help.

One thing you can try doing to, if you have enhancements this situation may be a good time to use them.

Turn your enhancements on, and then select the eq band and environment you want that will match your situation.

If you have extra dolby enhancements and volume/bass boosts turn those on and it will work.

I am unsure if you can directly input to your hearing aids the sound but that could help to so you didn't have to doodle about.

In win10 in addition to this, you can get dolby or sonic spacial audio and that should make things lowder.

I am assuming you will use headphones speakers are no good with this sort of thing.

But that parameter should be checked on the machine accessing, in the machine being accessed or on both machines?

Hmm I just remote to my client’s comuter today. Worked fine. But I do find it times the connection is not good. It all depends on both connections from yours to theirs that can affect remote control.

Will this be an option for Windows 7?


It's an NVDA option, OS independent.





Re: problems

You get into the settings with control NVDA key s.  After you change the synthesizer, you select the voice with control NVDA key v.

Gene,

In the new layout, since the voice disappears when I go into speech settings, what would be the key commands for changing synthesizers?

Thanks.

Hi

 

You can still use the old shortcut to get into the voice settings it is the ctrl key + nvda key + the letter V.

 

When the dialogue comes up with the settings just tab down to rate it is a slider use the right arrow key to speed up and the left to slow down. Make sure the settings are applied and ok to save the settings.

 

It can also be done through the synths rings i think it is called. Use the nvda key +ctrl key + the up arrow key to speed up nvda or the same keys except use the down arrow key while holding those keys to slow nvda down.

 

If you want to say change voices etc use the same keys nvda key + ctrl key + either left or right arrow keys to go between the different sections there..

 

 

If you want to ajust any of them say the varient to another while on it same keys plus either up or down arrrow keys to go betwen them while still holding those other 2 keys ctrl + nvda key.

I noticed this menu problem too yesterday.

I wanted to slow down the voice for a new user and could not find it anywhere in the menus.

I had to set it to default settings, and that was really not slow enough for her.

I hope it goes back to the way it was.

I am greatful for any help with these items.

I have a new computer running Windows 8.1 and have downloaded NDVA several times and the Windows sapi5 voyce will not showup.  I also can not seem to find it in my windows.

I have also downloaded  2 of the free voices from the NDVA site and properly used the manage apps to install them and they will not appear in the list of synthesizers, as a matter of fact the ESpeak does not appear either.

 

Finally the menus have completely changed from just a week ago, because I had downloaded NDVA for another person and the menus completely different? Any thoughts?  Thanks so much  

 


Windows 10 App Essentials 18.07 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of Windows 10 App Essentials 18.07. Highlights include ability to recognize more dialogs, various enhancements and fixes for modern keyboard (emoji panel/hardware keyboard suggestions/cloud clipboard/touch keyboard), announcement of error messages while checking for or installing updates in Settings app (Windows+I) and others. Note that this version will require Windows 10 Version 1709 (build 16299) or later. As always, the new add-on release is just an update check away.

 

Also, I’m putting together a wiki page with release-by-release changelog for this add-on, beginning with the very first release back in September 2015. I’ll let you know when this wiki page is ready.

 

Cheers,

Joseph
