PDF t9 Word keeping footnotes

Akshaya Choudhary
 

Sorry for spamming guys! I'm new to assisting technology.
Is there a way to convert a PDF to word and keep all the footnotes intact? In such a way that they can be accessed with alt plus S, H, command. 
Need to work on a book for school project but can't access the PDF properly. And when I convert it to word in Abby fine reader, footnotes become the part of the flow text. This makes them hard to identify with NVDA. 
Hoping someone can help

Regards

           The default settings in Thunderbird will mark messages as read after something like 5 seconds of being displayed in the preview pane or being opened in a separate tab for reading.  If the preview pane has accidentally been turned on this could be your problem when you slowly cruise through your inbox.  I believe that F8 will toggle the preview pane off and on.  You can also check View menu, Layout, Message Pane.

Re: Problem with Skype

P. Otter
 

hi, i'm afraid you have had the same problem as I have had.
I'm using windows 10 64 bit and skype the last version.
but when someone cals me, skype keeps ringing also when I've already answered the call.

when I hang up, skype keeps ringing!!!
the only way to stop it is in the taskmanager or reboot my computer!
what to do to solve this problem:
1 now you have installed an older version.
when you try to log in, skype geves you the message can not connect.
what to do,
go in skype in the menu, by pressing alt.
go to help
and there search for look for new version or such.
download and install that new version.
be carefull, there are checkboxes you have to uncheck, else there is a change in all of your using browsers, your homepage will be changed etc.
so it's better to uncheck that checkboxes.
with the new version, you can log in as usual.
when you've done, close skype.
now take your older version of skype.
now you install that older version, without remove the new version!!!!!
the skype installer tells you that the version you ar installing an older version is.
continu anyway?
it is yes.
remember, leave that older version somewhere in the download folder.
you will definitely need that in the future, I explain why.
skype will now start and log in normally!
and now with the older version that has nothing to do with.
you have to save the installation file, because it can go well for months but then suddenly, he can no longer log in.
then do the same trick again.
then it works again.

hope this helps

Hi


it will not do it if they have already been read. Only if they have not
been read.


But that is the section if you want to make it longer after you open it
before it goes to read.

Recognising highlighted text in word document by NVDA

Akshaya Choudhary
 

Can NVDA recognise highlighted text in a document? And can it be navigated as swiftly as we navigate other elements in browse mode? Like jumping from heading to heading. 
This function is especially required for word.

I won't discuss how you add sound to an already existing recording.  But deleting audio is the same in principle as in a word processor document, though the way you do it is different.  The concept is identical.

 

In a word processor document, if you want to delete a phrase in a sentence, you select the phrase and press delete.

 

In an audio editing program, if you want  to delete a block of audio, say ten seconds where you talked and a fire engine siren was recorded, you would mark the start of the bloc, move to the end, mark the end, and issue the delete command.  The bloc of audio is gone.  The start and end markers select the material between them and you delete it.  Just as in a word processor, material must be selected for you to do something with it, delete it, change its volume, whatever you want to do with it.

Regarding mixing music or other audio with voice and having the volume of the other audio automatically go down when you talk, as far as I know Audacity doesn't have that feature.  that would be something to ask about on the Audacity list since I don't follow the program carefully these days.  It may be a factor in deciding what program to use.  I don't know how wwell this feature works. 

 

If it moves to volume down too quickly when you talk and then moves it up too quickly when you stop, it could be annoying.  If it moves the volume up too soon after you stop talking, it might raise and lower the volume between sentences where you want it to remain at a constant lower volume while you speak a number of sentences.   I've never heard this feature.  It might be useful to have someone send a demonstration.  If someone is thinking of taking time to learn something about using a demo that one might buy, finding out if this feature is worth having might be a good idea before putting time into learning the program as opposed to a free alternative.

 

As far as using a USB microphone is concerned, I don't know if either Gold Wave or Audacity has the ability to record the sound from one sound card with the sound from another sound card simultaneously.  You may find it much better to mix using a mixer and use a standard microphone that plugs into the mixer.  I expect that these days, getting a reasonable microphone wouldn't be expensive.  I don't use USB microphones because I see no advantage in them and I avoid the complications of working with two sound cards. 

 

However, these are my opinions and those who know a lot more about the subject may say I'm wrong about the points I'm making.  But I want to keep things simple and do things efficiently.  If I added music to podcasts, which I haven't done, I would seriously consider using a mixer if I did more than the most simple and small amount of using music.  Having just a music introduction and end which I talk over is something I wouldn't buy a mixer for.  Having music interspersed throughout a podcast and do ing so on a regular basis is something I would seriously consider having a mixer for.  I would think it would save a lot of time in preparation.

You don't need Goldwave.  You may want to try or use it or you may prefer it but need means require.  In an earlier message, you, yourself said, that you use Gold Wave But Audacity is a good choice as well.  I don't know if one is easier or better to use.  Goldwave costs about 40 U.S. dollars, Audacity is free.  Gold Wave has a demo so you can try it.

Re: Using Station playlist with the latest version of NVDA

The program may have more than one way but in general, you have the program playing and press a key where you want the start marker, or you can pause the player and do so.  You may be able to stop the player at the place and do so as well.  Yo8u can move to the place where you want the end marker and do the same thing.
 
You can skip through a file until you are about at the right place, then play until you are at that place. 
 
If you want the start marker at the beginning of the file, it may be there when the file is opened.  Or you may have to press the start marker key without moving through the file at all.

Hi, that is a really nice concept, so how do you put in the marks so you can select a block of audio?

I won't discuss how you add sound to an already existing recording.  But deleting audio is the same in principle as in a word processor document, though the way you do it is different.  The concept is identical.
 
In a word processor document, if you want to delete a phrase in a sentence, you select the phrase and press delete.
 
In an audio editing program, if you want  to delete a block of audio, say ten seconds where you talked and a fire engine siren was recorded, you would mark the start of the bloc, move to the end, mark the end, and issue the delete command.  The bloc of audio is gone.  The start and end markers select the material between them and you delete it.  Just as in a word processor, material must be selected for you to do something with it, delete it, change its volume, whatever you want to do with it.

I have a presentation that demonstrates removing audio in recording programs but if you get good instruction or good instructional materiaal, that will be described if you are working with a recording program that allows editing and the material teaches that program in any depth.

Regarding mixing music or other audio with voice and having the volume of the other audio automatically go down when you talk, as far as I know Audacity doesn't have that feature.  that would be something to ask about on the Audacity list since I don't follow the program carefully these days.  It may be a factor in deciding what program to use.  I don't know how wwell this feature works. 
 
If it moves to volume down too quickly when you talk and then moves it up too quickly when you stop, it could be annoying.  If it moves the volume up too soon after you stop talking, it might raise and lower the volume between sentences where you want it to remain at a constant lower volume while you speak a number of sentences.   I've never heard this feature.  It might be useful to have someone send a demonstration.  If someone is thinking of taking time to learn something about using a demo that one might buy, finding out if this feature is worth having might be a good idea before putting time into learning the program as opposed to a free alternative.
 
As far as using a USB microphone is concerned, I don't know if either Gold Wave or Audacity has the ability to record the sound from one sound card with the sound from another sound card simultaneously.  You may find it much better to mix using a mixer and use a standard microphone that plugs into the mixer.  I expect that these days, getting a reasonable microphone wouldn't be expensive.  I don't use USB microphones because I see no advantage in them and I avoid the complications of working with two sound cards. 
 
However, these are my opinions and those who know a lot more about the subject may say I'm wrong about the points I'm making.  But I want to keep things simple and do things efficiently.  If I added music to podcasts, which I haven't done, I would seriously consider using a mixer if I did more than the most simple and small amount of using music.  Having just a music introduction and end which I talk over is something I wouldn't buy a mixer for.  Having music interspersed throughout a podcast and do ing so on a regular basis is something I would seriously consider having a mixer for.  I would think it would save a lot of time in preparation.

You don't need Goldwave.  You may want to try or use it or you may prefer it but need means require.  In an earlier message, you, yourself said, that you use Gold Wave But Audacity is a good choice as well.  I don't know if one is easier or better to use.  Goldwave costs about 40 U.S. dollars, Audacity is free.  Gold Wave has a demo so you can try it.

Yes Goldwave is what you need. its easy as editing a word document and
althou it needs to be registered, I've never regretted it.  See legality on
music though, you can get copyright free stuff often on  web sites
specialising in it.
