Re: NVDA For Windows 7 64 bit

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

Well on a day to day basis I only use windows 7, and as long as its service pack 1, then the latest nvda and the snaps work.
I notice that statistically Windows 7 is still on more machines than windows 10 of any flavour. Something like 47 percent in fact, so if nvda did not work there would be a lot of upset folk I'd imagine!
I think somebody should be a little more clear though and put the link to the latest version in a message here from time to time.

Re: NVDA 18.2.1 and bluetooth audio issue

Sylvie Duchateau
 

Hello Chris and all,
I had the same issue with my bluetooth headset and NVDA not talking in the headset but in the speaker.
To solve the problem, go to nvda settings, chose the speech tab, synthesiser, chosse change, and tab to "output device". Choose the one that is accurate, then ok, and it should work.
I have never been aware of this output device before, but since I changed it, this works.
Best
Sylvie

@Mark – thanks for verifying. I wanted some validation that it wasn’t a localized issue involving my machine.

 

Do you know if NVDA is aware or if a bug report has been issued? Also, did your issue start in v2018 also?

As of release 18 I have been having issues pushing NVDA output to my Bluetooth headphones on my Windows 10 laptop. All audio output from the laptop is successfully sent to the headset (including JAWS output) except for NVDA which plays from the laptop speakers. Interestingly enough, when I toggle the earphones off the audio stops playing on the desktop.

Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?

Hi, Jim,


What I do to download something is to save it to my downloads folder. Then I install it from there. You could do that with the latest version of NVDA.

Since you're running Windows 10, Jim, the default synth is 1 core now.
You'll like it better, I believe

Some resources for you are:
http://www.josephsl.net/tutorials/
The user guide is in the NVDA help menu, ie, nvda+n, then h, then hit
enter on u for user guide. There is also a command quick reference,
accessed similarly to the userguide, but press q instead of u. These
are all free. NV Access also sells some training materials, available
at:
https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

Buying them helps support the project.

Hi


Have you already got a copy of nvda already? if not you will need to get a
copy from http://www.nvaccess.org

It can be found under the downloads section.


To get into the preferences of NVDA after it has been started it is the nvda
key + letter N then arrow down to help and a sub menu will come off it that
is where you will find the user manual.


If nvda is not running it is the alt key +ctrl key + the letter N to start
your copy of nvda.


To quit your copy of nvda it is the nvda key + letter q.


Where i refer to the nvda key this is a modifier key and can be the insert
key, the extended insert key or the caps lock key.


You would use what ever one you chose to say quit nvda for example insert
key + letter Q


For windows 10 users now the default voice i think is set to windows one
core voices.


Otherwise earlier than that is e speak which i use all the time.


Just to give you the heads up also when you go into the preferences part of
nvda then arrow right it will now take you into the settings. Here you can
arrow down and up these sections.


To go into any of the sections use the tab key and tab through each part of
that section. You will see what i mean.


You can also use other sapi 4 and 5 voices along if you want to pay for
either vocaliser or eloquence voice not charged by nvaccess.


If you grab it from the website after it has been downloaded and the file
clicked on and started it has a talking installer. You will need to agree to
the documentation then after that it will give you 3 options one to install
to your pc, the second to make a portable copy and the third to run as a
temp copy pick the first option and follow directions to install it to your
pc.


If a UAC screen comes up for security use the alt key + letter Y to allow
nvda to be installed to your pc.


I do have other material on how to use nvda on my website if you are
interested but is only for a desk top user both in audio and written.

Re: new member with tons of question on NVDA.

Monte Single
 

Hi Jim,

 

The ugly voice is e speak.

To get a new voice;

 

Open the nvda menu with insert+n,

Arrow down to preferences submenu,

Choose synthesyzer,

You will find a sapi  choice ther,, choose it with eenter,

Open preferences again,

Now arrow down to voices,

Chose a   voice you  like,  hit enter,

Open  nvda  menus again  and  choose save changes on exit.

 

This should work, if it does not, I know there are  people on this list who will help further.

 

Just about all the basic commands for working  with menus, docs and reading and avigating text are the same as jaws.

 

You will not be disappointed.!!

Re: Speech Stopping

Abbie Taylor <abbietaylor945@...>
 

actually, I finally figured out how to reply online. I was pressing E to get into the appropriate field, and although I could get to the subject field, I couldn't get into the message area. However, I found that if I press tab several times after pressing reply, I can get into the message area. It's clunky but doable.

As for my infrequent speech issue, I mostly use Vocalizer, but I've also noticed this with Eloquence. Thanks.

Okay, if that happens again, I'll give it a try. Like I said, it doesn't happen very often. Thanks.


Re: Question regarding NVDA and speaking message columns in Outlook

Jonathan COHN
 

Was this done by reducing the number of columns in your Outlook view? In JAWS the column that indicates an attachment is present in a message is only spoken when there is actually an attachment. Also, the status column is not spoken for messages that have been read and no other action has occurred on the message.

Thanks,

And I would suggest making sure that you're running NVDA 2018.2 before writing a review, since there is now a new Preferences dialog that replaces the old Preferences menu.
