Re: transfer configuration

You could just copy the NVDA folder in appdata - probably a better way but that’s how I provision machines with NVDA.
Thanks

Re: Tutorial on Using Windows Mails App with NVDA

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


Have a look down the page from the link provided when you get to it at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20other%20programs.html


You can jump down by headings until you get to the windows mail tutorial. There is a link just under the heading then go into that page.


There might be other tutorials that may be of interest to you on the pages coming off it in the table etc


The material is for a desk top user and there might even be some other blindness related material that might help.



The main web site is http://www.accessibilitycentral.net

*Subject: *[nvda] Add-on Updater and Screen Curtain: updated with top requested features
Hi everyone,
I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of updates to Add-on Updater and Screen Curtain. Note that these add-ons are proof of concept (prototype) add-ons and should be used to provide feedback to people developing these feature in NVDA Core:
* Add-on Updater (NVDA Core issue 3208): Joseph Lee
* Screen Curtain (NVDA Core issue 7857): Leonard de Ruijter/Babbage B.V.
In case of Add-on Updater, today’s build includes work from checkable list (NVDA issue 7491), thus serving as a field test of that issue. If you have any comments on checkable list, please send them to Leonard.
To check for add-on updates:
1. If you have Add-on Updater installed, go to NVDA menu/Tools/Check
for add-on updates.
2. If you don’t have Add-on Updater, go to community add-ons website
and install Add-on Updater.
3. Due to addition of Screen Curtain in “add-ons under development”
category, you’ll need to check for add-on updates a second time to
update Screen Curtain.
Changelog:
Add-on Updater:
* When new add-on updates appear, the first entry will be selected and
announced automatically.
* Added ability to exclude add-ons from being updated. You can
configure this by going to NVDA menu/Preferences/Settings/Add-on
Updater panel. From “do not update add-ons” checkable list box,
check add-ons you do not want Add-on Updater to update. This was
requested by an add-on author.
Screen Curtain:
* Added a check to make sure magnification wrapper can be imported.
* Added an unassigned gesture to toggle screen curtain.
* Added a toggle menu item in Tools that shows state of Screen Curtain.
Enjoy.
Cheers,
Joseph


Re: Add-on Updater 18.08.4 patch to correct a regression from 18.08.3

You can assign a gesture under input gestures I have done this and I think the beep is good enough.

Hi Joseph
This one is to do with the screen curtain.
I have noticed when nvda boots up the screen curtain is on. I have been told by my sighted partner.
this is when you turn on the computer for the first time and not stand by.
so to make her happy i went to tools then screen curtain and pressed the enter key on it so it would turn it off.
I then saved the configuration so it would not come up.
Computer gets turned off have a cup of coffee then boot back up the computer from off.
When it boots back up the screen curtain goes back on so then if the wife wants to use it i  will turn it off.
She says she can not see the screen to do it lol rof. I use it all the time that way i tell her.
I think may be the default should be off until you turn it on.
I am guessing if the sighted partner wanted to use the pc and did not know they would be stumped. On my computer when ever one of my computers boots up nvda comes on and so would the screen curtain until things are ironed out.
Will a short cut be created so it can be turned on and off quickly with out going through the menus?
By the way where i hear the beeps could down the track maybe have it say screen curtain on or off?
I do not know what others think but but would be easier than the beep. I think it is high beep for on and low for off?
fI am going to get her to see when i go into other screens etc if it stays on permanently until it is turned off I am guessing it will.

Hi all,

First, I’d like to thank folks who have reported a bug where NVDA kept playing progress beep when trying to check for add-on updates. The root cause has been identified and a fix is now available in 18.08.4. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the problem, this one must be applied manually:

Hi Joseph
I just updated the add on to update add ons  and it got the latest.
I read to get the curtain one which i already have i had to go back a second time for it to see it and up date it so i did.
Only thing is it is still looking and i could not really cancel it it went on for quite a few minutes yet all the other add ons which i have were already updated.
I had to restart nvda so it would stop it from looking. Would that also be because the other add on is not up there? or a bug?

Re: Add-on Updater: patch release candidate for update checking and key error problem

 

Hi,
It is just one that's affected (there could be more). As for taking care of that in Core later, this can be done by not listing Vocalizer entries in the future add-on updates database, and checking or unchecking Vocalizer add-ons to exclusions list has no effect as current add-on server does not list them.
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: how to filter brailleoutput

Gene, yes I see what you mean.
I think there are more people who use braille and speech both than developers realize.
And if one used the rules to totally eliminate unnecessary words there would be no problem.
And it will be a pain for me to set up two separate sets of rules.
But (sigh) I see what you mean."


Re: Add-on Updater: patch release candidate for update checking and key error problem

 

Hi,
Another user had this exact problem, and based on a Python Console output
from this user, it was traced to badly formatted add-on summary for Nuance
Vocalizer Expressive English Compact. The exact issue is that this
particular summary text is treated as a list, not a true string. Therefore,

trying to install NVDA on a new laptop I purchased for my wife.  After installing it and going into the speech settings I only have the one core voices to choose from.  Why aren't any other options showing up? After the line that shows the one core voice there is a change button but if I press that the NVDA UI closes and I am back to the desktop.
Running latest version of Win 10 on this HP Envy 13z laptop.  It is running AMD processor and graphics if that makes any difference.
Thanks


Re: installing nvda on new laptop

 

What synthesizer are you using?  This has a direct impact on what voices will or will not be presented.

Hey folks, I'm running NVDA 2018.2.1 and I'm trying to use my Orbit
Reader 20 with it. It is connected via USB and when I go in to the
nvda / settings / Braille menu and try and select the Baum / APH /
orbit option, I get the error tone and it says "could not load the
Baum display"
I've used my OR20 before with NVDA.
Any thoughts?
Thanks!

Re: Add-on Updater and Screen Curtain: updated with top requested features

Hi


Where Joseph refers to is check under the input gestures section of nvda.


When you get there press the enter key then go to tools then screen curtain and asign a key.


I missed that one 2 in the latest update of the add on  of where to assign a key.

.

I was looking either under tools menu under the preferences section there is a menu there for screen curtain and when checked is on and unchecked is off. I went with the short cut when it was done.

You will need the latest version of screen curtain.


I did not realize it either there is also a gesture where you can open the add on manager quickly with a gesture in that section.

Hi,

That command does exist and is unassigned by default (Joseph decides to drink a bottle of black coffee to stay up all night and work on documentation…). I’ll mention this fact in the readme later in August.

Cheers,

Subject: [nvda] Add-on Updater and Screen Curtain: updated with top requested features

 

Hi everyone,

 

I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of updates to Add-on Updater and Screen Curtain. Note that these add-ons are proof of concept (prototype) add-ons and should be used to provide feedback to people developing these feature in NVDA Core:

 

  • Add-on Updater (NVDA Core issue 3208): Joseph Lee
  • Screen Curtain (NVDA Core issue 7857): Leonard de Ruijter/Babbage B.V.

 

In case of Add-on Updater, today’s build includes work from checkable list (NVDA issue 7491), thus serving as a field test of that issue. If you have any comments on checkable list, please send them to Leonard.

 

To check for add-on updates:

 

  1. If you have Add-on Updater installed, go to NVDA menu/Tools/Check for add-on updates.
  2. If you don’t have Add-on Updater, go to community add-ons website and install Add-on Updater.
  3. Due to addition of Screen Curtain in “add-ons under development” category, you’ll need to check for add-on updates a second time to update Screen Curtain.

 

Changelog:

 

Add-on Updater:

  • When new add-on updates appear, the first entry will be selected and announced automatically.
  • Added ability to exclude add-ons from being updated. You can configure this by going to NVDA menu/Preferences/Settings/Add-on Updater panel. From “do not update add-ons” checkable list box, check add-ons you do not want Add-on Updater to update. This was requested by an add-on author.

 

Screen Curtain:

  • Added a check to make sure magnification wrapper can be imported.
  • Added an unassigned gesture to toggle screen curtain.
  • Added a toggle menu item in Tools that shows state of Screen Curtain.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph
