Re: accessible sms texting from windows with NVDA

I agree that texting from a cell phone is quite slow. It's so much easier to do it from the computer. I really don't like texting either but in Mom's case, I don't really have a choice. Her hearing is pretty bad but this recent ear infectionmade it worse.

I'm not fond of texting, or writing for that matter on a cell phone, I can do it, but it's slow.
Usually when I text other people's phones, I do it from a computer.

Hi, Glen,

My mom and I are testing back and forth because she can't hear now. She can talk to me but if I talk to her, she can't hear me. Texting is the only way we can communicate now.

Well, if you have eMail on your phone, you can text people via eMail by sending an eMail message to 10-digit-number@the domain For example, to text to a cell phone on Verizon, you eMail to:
5555555555@...
All cell companies have domains for eMailing to.

Hi,

If you have an Android device, try Pulse SMS http://www.pulsesms.com/
Its web site works well though, in my experience, the app doesn't.
I know of no way to do this from the iPhone or another phone type, unfortunately. Obviously, if you want to do this from a number other than that of your phone, that is, if you don't care about your SMS appearing from, and replies to those messages going to, a number different from your own phone number, you can use any of the VOIP services.

Hi, I'm pretty sure you can use email to do this if you get the carrier's address right. Here's a link on how to do this.
https://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/how-to-send-a-text-from-your-email-account/
Basically, you open up your email client and put the number you're sending to in followed by the carriers SMS gateway address.

Re: accessible sms texting from windows with NVDA

Ervin, Glenn
 

Well, I can't tell you for outside the US, but I can't imagine that they don't.
But perhaps it is using another company's towers.
For example, I'm on Selectel, yet I use the Verizon domain.
So it's likely using the domain for who's towers it rides on.

I don't believe that "all cell companies have domains for eMailing to" is globally true.

For example, can you find a domain for Vodafone UK?

Also, how do you know which provider's domain you need to send the message to when all you know is the phone number?

Hi, I'm pretty sure you can use email to do this if you get the
carrier's address right. Here's a link on how to do this.
https://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/how-to-send-a-text-from-your-email-account/
Basically, you open up your email client and put the number you're
sending to in followed by the carriers SMS gateway address.

Re: NVDA recent snapshots not reading message status in Outlook

Christo de Klerk
 

I have not rolled back, but a friend who is experiencing the same issue, has rolled back to a snapshot from May which brought back the announcements of the status indicators.

As WXPython deals specifically with human interface and this is by its nature a human interface related issue, I think it is quite likely that the migration could have such a side-effect.

Possibly most other people are not using snapshots and consequently might not be aware of what might be awaiting them. Here in my country most NVDA users do not use snapshots, but the few I know who do, have this issue. It is not just I.

Hello all


I have noticed that the NVDA snapshots of the past two months or so no longer read message statuses in Outlook. This is true of Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016 and Outlook in Office 365. Could this be an unpleasant side-effect of the migration to WXPython 4? Can we look forward to this being fixed in the not too distant future. It really was such a helpful feature when NVDA used to announce message statuses.


Kind regards

Re: accessible sms texting from windows with NVDA

Hi,

If you have an Android device, try Pulse SMS
http://www.pulsesms.com/
Its web site works well though, in my experience, the app doesn't.
I know of no way to do this from the iPhone or another phone type, unfortunately. Obviously, if you want to do this from a number other than that of your phone, that is, if you don't care about your SMS appearing from, and replies to those messages going to, a number different from your own phone number, you can use any of the VOIP services. See, just for accessible examples

HTH,
Aman

Re: looking for tutorial on Dictation Bridge

Pranav Lal
 

Dan,

NVDA has a comprehensive manual. Moreover, with dictationBridge active, you
can enable help with nvda key + f1 and then speak a command. That should
give you help.

Thank you very much for helping. I do have drageon 12 so will try dictation
bridge with. I was hopping for some list of hotkeys that work with nvda
like that of jaws. Of course jaws is much more than I can afford. So I am
hoping I can do the same thing with nvda.
Thanks a bunch.

Hi Dan,

There are no paid tutorials for dictationBridge but thanks for the thought.
The place to go for dictationBridge documentation is:
https://github.com/dictationbridge/dictationbridge-docs/blob/master/dictatio
nBridge.md

There is really nothing you need to do with dictationBridge. If you need
echo back, you install the add-on and wen you launch Dragon or windows
speech-recognition, you will get echo back. If however, you want to write
commands to control a program via speech, then you will have to look at the
documentation of your speech recognition engine of choice.
