I don't know, that could get rather complex. FFMpeg has a giant amount of options to take into account.


Re: Accessible YouTube Video Downloading Software

It doesn't convert youtube formats, but I have a program called youtube downloader gui located at

http://www.softcon.com/files/

that will download any number of youtube videos.  Read the documentation, it tells you where to go to get the support programs you'll need to do the downloading, and fmpeg can do the converting for you once it's downloaded.  I should probably put a link to ffmpeg in the documentation too, even though I don't use it, it is a useful utility.  Perhaps I should build a graphical interface for that one too.

Dear all,

Presently, I use clipconverter.cc to download YouTube videos in the
desired format and quality. However, I am now looking for a software
equivalent that can download multiple YouTube videos simultaneously in
my preferred format and at a selectable quality that is free as well
as accessible.

I would truly appreciate any suggestions or recommendations of such software.

Thanks.

No problems using the latest NVDA Alpha along with Firefox 60.
I chose Kindle Store in the dropdown box, entered a title in the
Searchbox and clicked Search, and clicked on the link that matched. As
expected, the page of the book contained both a Buy Now button and Add
to Cart Button. I can also use One Click since I have it enabled.

Up through yesterday, I had no trouble buying Kindle books through
Amazon. Things were labeled, and easily findable. Today the area of
the page where the buying options are seems to have changed.

There is now a new heading called "Buying Options." It's the first
heading on the page. The interesting thing about this heading is that
there is no number associated with it. Instead of saying "heading
level 1," as the heading below it says, all is says is "heading."

I think the buy and read now links, along with the price that used to
be readily visible are now hidden inside the new "heading" area.
Arrowing down once leads to the "add to list" checkbox.

This has been confirmed both in Firefox 64 and Chrome 64 using Windows
7 64-bit and NVDA 2018.2.1.

If anyone else can confirm, and can have any idea on how to deal with
this, that would be appreciated.

Here's an example. For the US, this book is free at least today, hence
why I chose it, so trying to buy it won't cost anybody any money. And,
yes, the page is the same whether a book is free or not:

Did so as well with NVDA last week. Layout has undergone some changes but
once I figured out the new design, navigation was easy for purchases. Not as
true if you want to discontinue a subscription item. That took a bit of
poking about, but finally found the delete button.

Re: NVDA + F5 hotkey doing an actual document reload

Gene
 

To test whether NVDA f5 is refreshing the page or just the buffer, you should disconnect from the Internet while a page is in the browser.  If numpad f5 produces a page not found message, then it is refreshing the page itself, which refreshes the buffer, but it is not just refreshing the buffer.  If, on the other hand, NVDA f5 refreshes and starts to read the page when not connected to the Internet, then we know that the command is refreshing the buffer and not the actual page.

ConfigObj 5.1.0: different import paths causes some add-ons to fail to initialize

 

Hi all,

 

The second of a series of advisories regarding what’s happening with NVDA 2018.4:

 

As of today’s alpha build, ConfigObj has been upgraded to 5.1.0. The biggest change, apart from ConfigObj being source-compatible with Python 3, is the new import path for validate module. Unfortunately, the module that is supposed to be part of NVDA wasn’t added, which causes Remote Support, Vocalizer and other add-ons that rely on validate routines to fail to initialize. NVDA developers are aware of this and plans to fix this as soon as possible.

 

Cheers,

Joseph
