Thanks for your closeness and prayers, Travis. It's very hard; Pivi was my fifth guide dog, but she was really special. I miss her so much...

Very interesting, thanks! I have found two possible products:

Virtual Recorder which offers a free trial but does cost to have the full copy

Or

Virtual audio recorder by DDMF which costs €15 to buy.

 

Which one are you recommending?

 

All the best,

Hi,

I would like to recommend a great sound recorder called virtual recorder. It is very easy to download and install, and very accessible. When you launch it, you can record your voice with a built in mike, record sounds straight from the sound card, or both. So, it does very well with recording pod casts, because it records your voice great, and it records a screen reader directly from the sound card at the same time, so your voice and screen reader come through loud and clear. There is a record button, stop, pause, and you can record in many formats like MP3, for example. The problem with Voice recorder in win10, is that you only have the choice of recording in a M4A format that is unique to win10. Very few players can play the files that you record with that program. Virtual recorder saves your recordings in a folder that you choose as soon as you stop the recording. The recordings are so clear I have done with it, and it does not take up much room on your computer. There is even a portable version that can run from a USB flash drive. Just type in Virtual Recorder in your search like Google, and you will get a site to download it. You may be able to download it from:

If not, just do a search for it. I absolutely love it. Take care.

If the sound recorder program in Windows 10 is like the one in Windows 7, it's almost worthless.  In the Windows 7 program, you can't edit and it records in the MP3 format as I recall.  I know you can't choose formats and I know it’s a lossy format.

Hi Gene,
It would be really appreciated if you could share links to your
tutorial and other guides you mentioned that teach Audacity, even if
intended for use with JAWS. I shall adapt.
The previous audio tutorial series I had tried understanding from was
primarily using the JAWS scripts features which provide automatic
read-outs, and I was unable to find an alternative source for the same
information, despite having reviewed the screen. It was sort of a
little intimidating, to be true.
Thanks.

Audacity commands for play, record, and for editing are program commands.
As in so many cases, if you know how to use a program, you can do a good
deal with it regardless of screen-reader. Many people use Gold Wave and
Audacity with NVDA. At times, JAWS may have scripts that allow you to do
more or do some things more easily. At times, NVDA may have been nodified
to allow it to work more fully or in an automated way with a program.
You can often learn a lot from tutorials or a written guide written for
blind users regardless of which screen-reader they may have been written
for.

If you know your screen-readers commands such as read current line, etc. and
how to review the screen. you can use a lot of program commands and look at
the screen if you don't get automatic readout.

I don't know what you want to do with these programs. I did a basic
tutorial for Audacity explaining how to edit and the basics of the program.
the program has some new features that weren't covered and one of them might
be very useful in editing. But you will get a good basic knowledge of how
to edit and play and record. I can find a download link if you want it.
Others may make other suggestions such as the written user Guide to the
program with JAWS. I believe that more advanced users may find this to be
useful but it is very densely written, more like a manual and I think most
beginner users are far better off using an actual tutorial with oral
instructions and demonstrations.

Hi,
You cannot use alt to get to menus. You have to get to all buttons by using object navigation with NVDA. That is the only way you can get to the buttons. You have to use the mouse to click on the buttons that you find with the review cursor.

Thanks everybody for the info on using Edge.  Please, how does one access the pull down menus in Edge?  I keep hitting the “alt-key” and nothing happens.   Is there another way in Edge?  All the alt key commands of IE seem to be deactivated when I launch Edge.  Please advise.  Also, I have a set home page, Edge ignores it and goes to the default each time.

Many thanks.

Hi,

I urge you to get the NvDA add on, Windows 10 app assentials. This add on makes NVDA able to access all of the results of Cortana in Edge. Cortana can already do much more than Siri on an iPhone, so I really encourage you to give Cortana and Edge to get her results another try after you install the NVDA add on Windows 10 app assentials that Joseph Lee programs. Using Cortana and accessing the results with NvDA already makes me much more efficient with doing my work. You do not have to do a lot of browsing to find what you want, because Cortana does such a good job of narrowing down what you need and you can read the results right away in Edge and totally access it with NVDA. I just want you to know how much I am getting out of Cortana and Edge by installing that add on to NVDA. Take care.

Hello,

Unfortunately there is not a way to disable edge entirely. There are times when it will automatically be used no matter what you have your default browser set to. One instance that comes to mind is when doing a search with Kortana. The search results will always come up in edge.

Re: Suggestions for sound recording programs: was, New Member (5)

David Moore
 

Hi,
I would like to recommend a great sound recorder called virtual recorder. It is very easy to download and install, and very accessible. When you launch it, you can record your voice with a built in mike, record sounds straight from the sound card, or both. So, it does very well with recording pod casts, because it records your voice great, and it records a screen reader directly from the sound card at the same time, so your voice and screen reader come through loud and clear. There is a record button, stop, pause, and you can record in many formats like MP3, for example. The problem with Voice recorder in win10, is that you only have the choice of recording in a M4A format that is unique to win10. Very few players can play the files that you record with that program. Virtual recorder saves your recordings in a folder that you choose as soon as you stop the recording. The recordings are so clear I have done with it, and it does not take up much room on your computer. There is even a portable version that can run from a USB flash drive. Just type in Virtual Recorder in your search like Google, and you will get a site to download it. You may be able to download it from:
If not, just do a search for it. I absolutely love it. Take care.

If the sound recorder program in Windows 10 is like the one in Windows 7, it's almost worthless.  In the Windows 7 program, you can't edit and it records in the MP3 format as I recall.  I know you can't choose formats and I know it’s a lossy format. Whether ogg or MP3, its so limited that it's more like a toy. 
 
I don't recall if it even has a pause button and if it resumes recording or overwrites the file if you stop and start it.  What program did you used to use?  If you used the old XP sound recorder, that may still work in Windows 10.  I got it to work in Windows 7.  I can suggest programs to use to create a podcast file and edit it.  For example, you might use a program I have to record the podcast file and then edit with Mp3 Direct Cut.  Both programs will produce MP3 files but, for reasons I won't go into now, it's better to use one program I can discuss for editing and MP3 Direct Cut for editing.

Further specs: My Web browser is the latest version of Firefox (even though a sighted friend told me that Google Chrome was better), my default media player is Windows Media Player 12 (not The Groove Music from Windows 10), and Gmail is the only e-mail source I use.  Since Windows 10 doesn't come with the Sound Recorder program like how previous versions of Windows does, I'm missing it a lot because I use it for Podcasting and other projects.  Can any Windows 10 user recommend any sound-recording program that would work well with it + NVDA?  I'd appreciate your feedback so much.

Just FYI: I have no usable vision in both eyes to read large print so I'm totally dependent on NVDA to do all my reading out loud for me.

Take care, and have a good day.

sincerely,

Jolene.

Ollie,
I am also sorry to hear of your guide's passing on.
That is always so hard... no matter how many guides any of us has had.
Please be good to yourself.
You're in my prayers.

And, thank you Travis, for changing the subject line-- that helped me to open the message sooner.

Well its only wav, assuming its 32 bit it maybe only 2gb but then it was never meant for large files.

I believe it is available on NVDA's Italian website, i.e. nvda.it, but
it seems that this website is down at the moment.
Therefore, it would be really appreciated if someone could upload the

I woudl appreciate any assistance.

Urgent help needed. How to add an existing Braille table as a Braille input table?

Mohammadreza Rashad
 

Hi dear list members. I'm a volunteer NVDA translater from Iran. I'm
also using NVDA as my favorite screenreader.
First of all, excuse me because of my poor English writing. Since it's
not my mother tongue.
Secondly, excuse me again about my probably-off-topic question.
You know that NVDA uses Liblouis Braille Translater to display
computer texts in Braille for us. Fortunately, Liblouis has Persian
(Farsi) braille table to output Persian text in Braille.
Regarding to what I wrote, Persian (Farsi) isn't listed in Braille
input tables. There are also other languages like Persian that not
listed in the Braille input tables.
I, as a blind Persian-speaker, want to add my language Braille table
(Farsi grade 1)
into Braille input tables. and now my question is: how can I do this?
Is it necessary to add a separate Braille table for Farsi? or the
existing Farsi grade 1 table is enough?
     Thanks for your help in advance
     Best wishes,
     Mohammadreza Rashad

If the sound recorder program in Windows 10 is like the one in Windows 7, it's almost worthless.  In the Windows 7 program, you can't edit and it records in the MP3 format as I recall.  I know you can't choose formats and I know it’s a lossy format. Whether ogg or MP3, its so limited that it's more like a toy. 
 
I don't recall if it even has a pause button and if it resumes recording or overwrites the file if you stop and start it.  What program did you used to use?  If you used the old XP sound recorder, that may still work in Windows 10.  I got it to work in Windows 7.  I can suggest programs to use to create a podcast file and edit it.  For example, you might use a program I have to record the podcast file and then edit with Mp3 Direct Cut.  Both programs will produce MP3 files but, for reasons I won't go into now, it's better to use one program I can discuss for editing and MP3 Direct Cut for editing.

Hi Lino!

Thanks for asking. Yes, doing fine here and happy that were about to end up the summer soon and rainy season will most likely to come. About the Virtual recorder,  This has been shared by one of the member here in the list, but I already forgot it where to find it from my archive. But, if you like I could upload it to my One drive and share it to you I will let you know once the upload process is done and I will give you an off list message. Just give me some time to get it done from here.

The virtual recorder is very straight forward tool to use, you can simply record and stop the recording , and automatically saved it into mp3 format and the saved file often located to path of file folder in the documents.  And for the audacity, the conversion process would take place by exporting it to mp3 however, in order to save it to mp3 you need to install the Lame_v3.99.3_for_Windows.exe. The good feature of audacity is that you can edit and incorporate tracks or the the so called multi-tracking by incorporating other external devices but that is quite advance.

Here is my view of points concerning to your message. First about the browser, most of the time I used to work well with Firefox, and which I think is the best and most accessible but again, it may defer your preferences of working you do. Second, about the recording apps that there are the two that is commendable is the audacity and Virtual Recorder these  has its features to saved and you can create mp3 files format.  Those mentioned apps is freeware and at the same time it is doable with nvda. And, lastly, for the email client I often used Thunderbird but Win 10 has this built-in Mail apps where you can save and have it setup your mail whether IMAP or POP account. In the other note, you can play around and explore these mentioned software which gives you an edge to familiarize the shortcut keys and how does it works until you decide which you may think that best fit for your needs. Again, if you have any further question please don't hesitate to message here and surely someone here from the list will helps you.
