Re: Add-on Updater: 18.08.5 as last stable version for now, few important announcements

Clare Page <clare.page@...>
 

Hi!

I installed Add-On Updater 18.08.5 yesterday, and it shows up as enabled in my add-ons list, but I still have the strange problem I described before, where there is no sign of the add-on updater in either tools or preferences.

As I wr’ite this, I haven’t been warned of any add-on updates either, but that might be simply because none of mine are being updated at this moment. Some of my add-ons are old and have never been updated since I got them as far as I know, which might make a difference.

I probably shouldn’t worry if nothing happens, I just hope to see proof one day that the add-on updater is working, not just that it’s enabled in the Manage Add-ons dialogue.

Bye for now!

From Clare

Subject: [nvda] Add-on Updater: 18.08.5 as last stable version for now, few important announcements

 

Hi all,

 

First, thank you all for your valuable feedback regarding Add-on Updater. At the moment I’m making changes to the corresponding pull request (NVDA issue 3208) based on your feedback and the add-on code.

 

Also, version 18.08.5 will hit the air in about half an hour from now. This one fixes a bug where Add-on Updater settings panel didn’t show up properly if there are add-ons with badly formatted manifest data. I also took this time to exclude Nuance Vocalizer family of add-ons from participating in add-on update checks.

 

Few more important announcements:

 

  • Removing “stable” tag: I’m removing stable tag from this add-on once 18.08.5 is released. This is to follow precedence set by Screen Curtain where proof of concept/prototype add-ons will remain under development.
  • Compatibility with really old add-ons: prior to widespread use of Add-on Template, add-on authors would package add-ons by hand. This means add-on manifest data would be formatted in such a way that caused Python to treat them as things other than text. Although Add-on Updater will notice these and take appropriate action, compatibility with these old add-ons is not guaranteed. The solution is for add-on authors to put quotes around manifest data, specifically for summary and description fields. I’ll edit relevant sections in NVDA’s developer guide to reflect this discovery.
  • Feedback channel: in addition to emails and social media replies (Twitter and what not), the best place to send feedback regarding add-on update feature is GitHub via https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/3208.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: Navigating by paragraph

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

I think All Jaws does is to add a key that does the actual presses internally, which seems to me to be a waste of a keypress as keys unasigned tend to be getting as rare as hens teeth these days!
There used to be a neat utility that just did macros ie you could define a series of keypresses for a simple sequence to do for you.

NVDA does have the ability to remap keystrokes for its internal commands
via the "Input Gestures" dialog - press NVDA+n, then p, then select "Input
gestures", search for the command you want, and add a new keystroke (or
remove one).

CONTROL+UP ARROW or CONTROL+DOWN ARROW to move by paragraph in Word, is
actually a Word command rather than an NVDA command however, so you can't
remap that one. It's a common function though and is available in many
programs.

Quentin.

Re: Long Live Classic Skype

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

I do have some sympathy with them, but the fact is that they have been guilty of assuming they have made it better when in fact they have obviously not made it bug free as well. There is a long history of Skype cock ups going back way before Microsoft ever owned it, and they seem unable to break the cycle of fix one thing and break several other things. We all know the old Skype code is not as robust or secure as it could be, and hence I do see that Microsoft want to engineer it better for this reason anyway, but sadly, its not just blind users who are having issues with the new version and I really do think they need to stop fiddling and concentrate on fixing before they retire the old system for good.

Subject: [nvda] Long Live Classic Skype


Dear friends, in replying a message, I gave you some sort of small info regarding withdrawing micro soft’s decision of closure of Skype classic on September first, here is a detailed info!
Earlier this summer, Microsoft announced that they would be ending support for version 7.0 of classic Skype in September. If that news didn’t sit well with you, it looks like you will have a bit more time to use the software.
In a forum post where the Skype team was asking for feedback about the update, the team has updated the post to say that they will not be ending support Skype 7 and will extend the deadline. The company did not provide a new timeline for the end of life of the product but did say that they will update the post again with more information in the future.
The full post can be read below:

The team says that this change is based on customer feedback but is ambiguous about the future of the platform. This is an awkward backward step for the Skype team as they previously said that Skype 8 had all the functionality that users needed but clearly that is not the case.
For the past couple of weeks, Microsoft has been aggressively pushing users to upgrade from version 7 to 8 but it’s clear that this update process has been far from painless.
I have reached out to Microsoft about this change to see if they will provide any additional information about when this product will be retired.
For now, if you are using the classic version of Skype, you will be able to do so for the foreseeable future. That being said, at some point you will have to migrate to a newer version of the software.

thunderbird 60.0

 

Hi all.

A note to those on 52.9.1

thunderbird 60.0 is tunderbird for quantom, its a new upgrade but you have to get it, if you have 52.91 and are happy with it, ie don't have any issues, use the link I sent to go to it in releases and get that.

However, please note that your not likely to get any more updates for it.

Its also worth mentioning that the 52x version is the last mozilla developed version it looks like while mozilla hosts it its a redone engine using the new quantom engine.

Unlike firefox bar the addons dialog, its actually quite accessible and is probably what I will use going forward.

However its worth noting that if you really don't like it you can go to 52.91 and stay there for ever more, just know there is no security for you, on the other end, your addon or addons may or may not work in the latest version.

The only thing I changed was messages to open in the same window else it remembered my settings

It also appears that it keeps the same interface themes.

I have not as yet noticed any slowdowns though.


Re: thunderbird 60.0

 

Well the easiest way to get it will be at

https://www.thunderbird.net/

for the more adventurous of you all

https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/

In there select a release, thats 60, just 60.0 no beta, etc.

Select your language, en-us is what I use but en-gb is the global english or any other language.

then win32 is the standard thunderbird, or win 64 or win x64 is the 64 bit directory.

Download that file they are all called the same.

uninstall from add remove programs your old version of thunderbird and then install the new one.

Hi.

Well I must say after updating I chose to use the 64 bit addition of thunderbird from mozilla ftp as I thought why not.

What I found out is that while most to the dialogs are accessible parts of the addon search dialog and install dialogs are not, thats fine because I have no intention of installing addons.

The cpu usage is a bit up, also it will not honor your intergration settings, it kept asking me and I had to tell it to not ask me again.


Otherwise, generally things are accessible, and descriptions have improved.

I am only talking general setup of things.

I do wander though if there is a way to install addons to thunderbird without the installer web interface, as its the brouser in the addons site which has access issues, the site itself is fine in a brouser so if I download an addon say google search I want a way to load it.

Bar that most of it seems fine though its only for email that I have set up, no news, no rss nothing like that.

I havn't bothered with chatting either.

But at least thunderbird quantom is not the same as firefox quantom.

It does seem though that I can drop back to the older esr and it will be fine enough.

At the moment so i do not have to be in the screen under the calling section i think it is under your profile you can check the boxes to have it automatically answer in coming calls and videos that is what i have done at present.

I thought also some one on this list said there was another short cut that worked but until it can be confirmed in this version by some one else i then will add it. It when i had a quick look did not mention a short cut for answer in coming calls or video calls may be still to be added?

I do not mind the automatically answer part saves rushing and trying to figure which part of the screen to be in. It would of made sense to have left the old short cut keys from skype 7 in it.

Hi Adriani

 

I have just added a link to the google translate page for other languages on the main web page.

You can jump down by letter H to its heading then go down to the link then press the enter key where it will take you to another page.

 

For some reason i could not put in a plug in to do it and it wanted it on every page so have gone down this other route. There is a heading that says some thing like translate this website to another language and a link to the translate page. The default language is english and the website main page is already in the edit section to translate. it is then a matter of changing it to another language then having it translate to it. Just after the language combo box you want it to go to is where you can read it in another language. it also seems if you click on one of the links the next page is also translated but only on that page i have it pointing to off my website.

You will see what i mean when it is translated.

 

 

 

it may help? for people where english is not there first language like mine.

 

Not sure if the steps on what to do is enough or should i add a little more or hopefully it is clear enough on what to do.

I do wander though if there is a way to install addons to thunderbird without the installer web interface, as its the brouser in the addons site which has access issues, the site itself is fine in a brouser so if I download an addon say google search I want a way to load it.

Bar that most of it seems fine though its only for email that I have set up, no news, no rss nothing like that.

I havn't bothered with chatting either.

But at least thunderbird quantom is not the same as firefox quantom.

It does seem though that I can drop back to the older esr and it will be fine enough.

Hi


Is that not to make a call? I would have to go back and check when i checked the short cuts i did not see any to answer. so this one works to answer a call?


I wonder if any of the old short cuts would work? at moment i just get it to automatically answer it is alot easier.

Hi Adriani

 

I have just added a link to the google translate page for other languages on the main web page.

You can jump down by letter H to its heading then go down to the link then press the enter key where it will take you to another page.

 

For some reason i could not put in a plug in to do it and it wanted it on every page so have gone down this other route. There is a heading that says some thing like translate this website to another language and a link to the translate page. The default language is english and the website main page is already in the edit section to translate. it is then a matter of changing it to another language then having it translate to it. Just after the language combo box you want it to go to is where you can read it in another language. it also seems if you click on one of the links the next page is also translated but only on that page i have it pointing to off my website.

You will see what i mean when it is translated.

 

 

 

it may help? for people where english is not there first language like mine.

Hi

 

the old way to get into safe mode in windows 10 can be found here at https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-boot-to-safe-mode-with-command-prompt-2624541

 

You will need a pair of eyes to do this plus you might not even have sound.

 

So am guessing you will need to burrow some eyes and give them directions to fix the problem.

Re: Navigating by paragraph

Quentin Christensen
 

NVDA does have the ability to remap keystrokes for its internal commands via the "Input Gestures" dialog - press NVDA+n, then p, then select "Input gestures", search for the command you want, and add a new keystroke (or remove one).

CONTROL+UP ARROW or CONTROL+DOWN ARROW to move by paragraph in Word, is actually a Word command rather than an NVDA command however, so you can't remap that one.  It's a common function though and is available in many programs.  

Regards

Quentin.

Hi,

 

Is there, or has somebody created a six-dot Japanese braille table? I would like to learn Japanese, at least the basics, and I think the easiest way would be by using my Orbit Reader20 braille display(s). But I do not see a Japanese table. Or would I have to buy Duxbury?

thunderbird 60.0

 

Hi.

Well I must say after updating I chose to use the 64 bit addition of thunderbird from mozilla ftp as I thought why not.

What I found out is that while most to the dialogs are accessible parts of the addon search dialog and install dialogs are not, thats fine because I have no intention of installing addons.

The cpu usage is a bit up, also it will not honor your intergration settings, it kept asking me and I had to tell it to not ask me again.


Otherwise, generally things are accessible, and descriptions have improved.

I am only talking general setup of things.

I do wander though if there is a way to install addons to thunderbird without the installer web interface, as its the brouser in the addons site which has access issues, the site itself is fine in a brouser so if I download an addon say google search I want a way to load it.

Bar that most of it seems fine though its only for email that I have set up, no news, no rss nothing like that.

I havn't bothered with chatting either.

But at least thunderbird quantom is not the same as firefox quantom.

It does seem though that I can drop back to the older esr and it will be fine enough.


Re: Microsoft Word 2016 stop working.

Quentin Christensen
 

If you alt+tab away to another program and back to Word does it work again?  Alternatively, if you restart NVDA does it work?

Another question - does it always happen, or only with particular documents?  EG does it happen more if you have a document with track changes on, lots of changes and comments, or does it happen if you open a blank document in word and start typing a paragraph of text?

NVDA does have a log, and if you send me a copy of it with a description of what is happening, I'd be happy to have a look.  You can find the log in your %temp% directory.  See this page for more information on the log: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/LogFilesAndCrashDumps  If you send me a log to info@... - ideally at log level debug, that would be most helpful.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi everybody,

I would like to ask to people who work with Microsoft Word like me if you have the same problem.

During my job, Microsoft Word stops working and until I don't close or restart NVDA it doesn't unlock.

It happens since a lot of months. I've hoped that through different NVDA updates, Microsoft Word updates and Microsoft Windows update it can be solved, but it continues, so I'd like to ask here.

I'd like to specify that the computer I work on is specifically set only for job.
So few application are installed, and everything is licensed.

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 1803
Microsoft Word: Home and Students Version 1806 (build 10228.20104)
NVDA: version 2018.2.1
Synthetizer_ IVONA, italian Carla

I've made a lot of tests. Microsoft Office tries to understand via Remote Control, but no success.

When Microsoft Word stops working, also NVDA doesn't give me anymore audiofeedback.
There is a log file for NVDA I can share with you to understand better what's happening?

Thanks so much.

Daniele.

we had this conversation some months ago, here is a gegistry file which activates your sound driver in safe mode. It has been tested with XP as well and it works perfectly. NVDA can be used in safe mode after activating this file:

Hi

 

the old way to get into safe mode in windows 10 can be found here at https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-boot-to-safe-mode-with-command-prompt-2624541

 

You will need a pair of eyes to do this plus you might not even have sound.

 

So am guessing you will need to burrow some eyes and give them directions to fix the problem.

Long Live Classic Skype

Inam Uddin
 

Dear friends, in replying a message, I gave you some sort of small info regarding withdrawing  micro soft’s decision of closure of Skype classic on September first, here is a detailed info!

Earlier this summer, Microsoft announced that they would be ending support for version 7.0 of classic Skype in September. If that news didn’t sit well with you, it looks like you will have a bit more time to use the software.

In a forum post where the Skype team was asking for feedback about the update, the team has updated the post to say that they will not be ending support Skype 7 and will extend the deadline. The company did not provide a new timeline for the end of life of the product but did say that they will update the post again with more information in the future.

The full post can be read below:

The team says that this change is based on customer feedback but is ambiguous about the future of the platform. This is an awkward backward step for the Skype team as they previously said that Skype 8 had all the functionality that users needed but clearly that is not the case.

For the past couple of weeks, Microsoft has been aggressively pushing users to upgrade from version 7 to 8 but it’s clear that this update process has been far from painless.

I have reached out to Microsoft about this change to see if they will provide any additional information about when this product will be retired.

For now, if you are using the classic version of Skype, you will be able to do so for the foreseeable future. That being said, at some point you will have to migrate to a newer version of the software.

Dear friends, I’m very happy to let you know that Microsoft has withdrawn its decision of ending support to Skype classic on September first.

Now you have enough time to learn Skype Electron as far as time table of ending support is concern, Microsoft didn’t say anything.

The only thing it said that it will give detailed information near future!

As far as answering key command is concern, ctrl+shift+p and ctrl+shift+k are audio and video calls respectively!

Hi

 

I have not gone through all the short cuts for skype either I copied the list from them and tried a few of them but not all. it just might be a focus thing with nvda not speaking that shorcut when preformed?

Hi

I just had a quick look under the skype 8 short cut keys hopefully i googled the right list for skype 8 for desk top it mentions short cut keys for other stuff in skype. the list can be found here at https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA12025/what-are-hotkeys-and-how-do-i-use-them-in-skype
At the moment so i do not have to be in the screen under the calling section i think it is under your profile you can check the boxes to have it automatically answer in coming calls and videos that is what i have done at present.

I thought also some one on this list said there was another short cut that worked but until it can be confirmed in this version by some one else i then will add it. It when i had a quick look did not mention a short cut for answer in coming calls or video calls may be still to be added?

I do not mind the automatically answer part saves rushing and trying to figure which part of the screen to be in. It would of made sense to have left the old short cut keys from skype 7 in it.

Hi Adriani

 

I have just added a link to the google translate page for other languages on the main web page.

You can jump down by letter H to its heading then go down to the link then press the enter key where it will take you to another page.

 

For some reason i could not put in a plug in to do it and it wanted it on every page so have gone down this other route. There is a heading that says some thing like translate this website to another language and a link to the translate page. The default language is english and the website main page is already in the edit section to translate. it is then a matter of changing it to another language then having it translate to it. Just after the language combo box you want it to go to is where you can read it in another language. it also seems if you click on one of the links the next page is also translated but only on that page i have it pointing to off my website.

You will see what i mean when it is translated.

 

 

 

it may help? for people where english is not there first language like mine.

 

Not sure if the steps on what to do is enough or should i add a little more or hopefully it is clear enough on what to do.

Dear Gene,

 

thank you for your great job. This is very important for the whole community. I have forwarded your links to the german community and in the translations group.

 

I hope I will find some time during next week to provide you some suggestions.

 

I propose to split the related sources in “development sources” and “user specific sources”. In this way we could add links to github and bitbucket as well.

Hi Adriani

There is a under construction page that went up tonight for nvda screen reader related resources off the main website at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net
When more resources get added there may be links off the nvda related web pages on my website that point to that page.

I have a rough idea of categories for the resources.
These can be changed  or added to.

Yep I am looking at doing a page for nvda screen reader related resources  which i will add it into which will be a separate web page. In that page I will break it down into say audio resources, video resources maybe nvda blogs? about using nvda? Not quite sure of other sections if i do and would be more a point to page but not jeffs one.

Even though he had a good site.

 

I am guessing we do  have links to other nvda resources like on you tube etc but not in the one place.

Hi Adriani

 

I was not sure if it worked on XP as when the directions went up i think at that time it had been tested on 7,8 and 10.

 

Would the directions from 10 also work on XP? to get into it as i used to do it the other way that was posted.

 

I have not any XP machines here now to test with.

 

The directions you gave are on the nvda audio tutorials page under trouble shooting.
