how to filter brailleoutput

Brian Tew
 

Is there any way to make the rules in speech dictionary apply to braille output?
We braille users need filters much more than audio users.


Re: Windows 10 Settings applet no longer accessible with NVDA

 

Hi all,

A Microsoft staff was able to reproduce this on Redstone 5, although this isn’t consistent, according to this person. I’ll post an update once we know more.

Cheers,

Joseph

HiDavid,

 

I don’t want to reset or roll back or anything like that, because it is working with JAWS so I can live with it.

 

It does illustrate however, that weird things seem to be happening on some machines with UIA.

 

All the best

This is a strange situation. I have  no problems here with Settings with  NVDA, Narrator, and Jaws2018.

I am using 64 bit Windows 10 18.03

Latest stable version of NVDA and Narrator. I updated Win 10 App Essentials today.

There therefore appears to be something on Steve’s machine and others which is triggering this problem.

I have  sympathy as there are  other aspects of my Win 10 setup which do not work as they should. I cannot for example ever get goldwqave to load properly.

Hello Steve and all,

 

Sorry, my mistake, it lands me in a search box so of course it doesn't speak at that point, pressing tab takes me to the menus etc, it even works with NVDA, stranger and stranger.

Even more confusing.  JAWS works fine for me, I'm on JAWS 2018.

 

What version of JAWS are you on?  If 2018, you should update to the July build, then I suspect it will work.

Offline due to computer failure

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

I do not know if its the hot weather here, or what but my main pc has
stopped booting, so depending on what a sighted person can deduce, I might
be out of circulation for a short or longer time. Obviously, since it has
an ssd and if that has gone, although I have backups, the configuration of
lots of software is a major task to undertake.
If in the end it is decided to reformat I cannot use the backups either so
that is going to take even longer to rebuild the files.

Basically, this morning I was told an update to an add on was available and I allowed it to proceed, but when the nvda rebooted the computer totally locked up.
On starting with the button, it continuously prompts for boot media, but does not provide a way to enter it. On chatting to the firm that built it they suggest the bios might be corrupt and I should keep hitting delete and then set the proper option. which really is not an option without sighted help.
If this is what it is, it could be the battery, I suppose or it might be corrupt windows, I have a rescue disc and backups from Sunday last, but if its a total mess than I have a major job of rebuilding a very complex lot of software. I'll see you all in the spring!

For those who have 18.08 (not 18.08.1), the new version is now ready to meet

Do you know how much the dot mini cost?

Hi,

When the dot mini is released, will it also work with NVDA? The dot mini is being developed by the same people who make the dot watch with its 4-cell braille display, but the dot mini will have a 16-cell display.

Yes I know I can do that, create a new VM. But the question remains, or perhaps I should rephrase it a bit, is deactivation reactivation a safe and reliable process?

I use Firefox but I use IE in limited fashion.

   So perhaps deactivate Windows, create a new VM and then reactivate it? Is this workable?

Re: Windows 10 Settings applet no longer accessible with NVDA

This is a strange situation. I have  no problems here with Settings with  NVDA, Narrator, and Jaws2018.

I am using 64 bit Windows 10 18.03

Latest stable version of NVDA and Narrator. I updated Win 10 App Essentials today.

There therefore appears to be something on Steve’s machine and others which is triggering this problem.

I have  sympathy as there are  other aspects of my Win 10 setup which do not work as they should. I cannot for example ever get goldwqave to load properly.

HelloSteve,

Yes, I am on the latest Windows version, however, I just checked and I
am using the version of NVDA previous to the latest, I will update at
some point, but everything I want is working at the moment, so I will

Dear Abby,

 

Perhaps the issue is that you are not logged into Groups.io on Firefox and Chrome.  Immediately after the “Help” button or link there is a widget that will have your name if you are logged in or else a link to the login screen.

I don’t know if this is an issue with NVDA or the groups.io site, but I thought I would bring it up for what it’s worth. I subscribe to this and two other lists on this platform in daily summary mode to cut down on the number of messages that land in my in box. This means that the only way I can reply to a message is through the website. Today, I discovered that the Reply button is missing. I was in Firefox at the time. I switched to Chrome and then Internet Explorer before finally finding the reply button. How weird is that?

Re: nvda and microsoft word

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Lisa,

You describe your use of the print and read modes of the word document itself. Do you use NVDA's browse and focus modes? When I use a form, I find that the editor (usually wiziwig) in the edit box is not fully accessible and so I keep browse mode on as I move around the form so that I can read the headings and get a feel for the document. Since Word has to be in print mode to allow editing, I keep Word in that mode as I work through the form. When I need to find an edit box in the form while I am in NVDA browse mode, I can press the letter "e" to jump to the nearest edit box and keep pressing "e" until I get to the box I need. I might actually use numpad "-" to bring NVDA to the part of the form where I need to be and then the letter "e" will land on the edit box that I need. Pressing enter here opens the edit box and turns on NVDA Focus mode which allows me to edit the box.

You may already follow this procedure yourself. The main point I am making is that navigating with Word in print mode might be tricky unless the NVDA browse and focus modes are carefully managed.

Is this any help to your query?

All the best,

Cearbhall

Hi,
Thanks for all the replies, ideas and help.

I have windows 10 on both my laptop and desktop, with NVDA 2018.2.1 and word 2013.

This is what I have achieved so far.

Firstly, this is an assessment work book for my course, which you have to fill in to have your assessment done, so you have edit boxes and some combo boxes. So far I have managed to get the document to read fairly well on my laptop, but not my desktop, which is just weird since they both run the same setup. In reading mode of word I can read the document and it will show me the edit boxes and combo boxes, some of which are set out in tables. To fill them in I need to put word into print layout view in order to write in edit boxes, or choose combo box type answers. A little fiddly, but probably not impossible :). In prin layout mode it will default to reading the edit or combo box, so using the key combination to read tables is how you read the label for each thing. Ok, so it's not perfect, and probably should read better, but the fact that it does read, and can be used is definitely a plus :).

On the desktop, the edit boxes and combo boxes do not speak, but there is NVDA plus H which will give focus to those boxes, and tell you to type here. Work arounds yes, and if anyone has any more ideas tips or suggestions on this, I know it's a little complicated, please let me know. I'm sure there's something I probably haven't tried yet :).

Hi Lisa,

I would like to try to help with this, if I can!

Can you say what version of Word you are using, What version of Windows and the version of NVDA that you are using? This will set the grounds for investigation

I use Word 2016 with the latest NVDA (version 2018.2.1) and windows 10.

I often get word files as attachments to emails and Windows always puts them into protected mode (this is the default action). When I unprotect them, I can read them fine. That is why I would ask you to describe your actions step by step from the point of opening the word file, how you unprotect it. Tell us what you expect to find in the document and what you are not hearing after that.


All the best,

Cearbhall

Hello,
I have a Microsoft word issue I could do with some ideas on if anyone has any.

I have a document I can read fine with NVDA in protected view mode, but when I take protected view mode off to edit it, NVDA stops being able to read it properly. Run out of things to try.

Any ideas? [smile].

Re: Windows Repair

 

Well you could always just delete the vm and try again.

Personally ie was never fully stable even in 10.

I use it for spaciffics, gmail on some sites is one, some of my update sites if I want to autoinstall things but its slow, crappy and clunky.

Its only good because a few things still need it and its crappy interface like pcpitstop.

For those places that it is still happy with its a dream.

   Internet Explorer under Windows 7 running in a virtual machine on the Mac crashes. I need to boot from the Windows 7 disc from the VM so I can run a repair. Since IE cannot be uninstalled this seems the only option. But there does not seem to be a way to actually boot from the disc in the VM.

   So perhaps deactivate Windows, create a new VM and then reactivate it? Is this workable?
