Re: winamp interesting news

 

Well it won't matter even if they don't keep the skin.

There are enough working versions of 5.666 that I doubt it will matter.

Pluss we may just be able to transfer everything out of the right folders I will make darn sure to make sure that the skins are coppied over,.

Saying that, as of right now, radiognome don't seem to have the same interests as aol, from what we know from what little exists they are a primarily a streaming service, the winamp player is a secondary thing, they really wanted the shoutcast streaming system.

I do want an updated plugin database though with the death of old winamp even though it was crap and outdated the entire plugin database went as well and I'd like it or some updated version of it back.

Bar old news on the forums and their site which is not updated much, if at all bar the free-codecs hack site which has a lot of stuff, the only thing official they have done this year is lock their twitter.

I followed them with chicken nugget a little while ago and I was accepted within a day but that is it.

Hi.

Its not officially on their website or in fact twitter, but free-codecs has published a page on winamp 5.8 beta, indicating that v6 will be out later this year.

I don't know how these guys get the information before others do and while I havn't downloaded this version since its not official as such its worth mentioning anyway.









Re: serious problem with nvda 2018.3 with firefox

Ron Canazzi
 

Hello Quenton and List,


This is the first time I have reported any issues with NVDA and Firefox, but I do see in 2018.3 a major and terrible issue.  Every time I run and after using the dialogue to type in a new address or using the bookmarks in Firefox latest version, Firefox crashes.  This is consistent and absolute.  I did restart Firefox, the computer and then tried NVDA with all add-ons disabled.  Nothing solved the problem.  This is certainly a show stopper.


I am using Windows 10 latest version with a 64 bit 16 GB RAM 8 core Intel system.

Press down arrow until the line beginning with "appModule.productVersion".

Notice: StationPlaylist Studio 18.09.2 will lock the update channel to LTS #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

With the release of NVDA 2018.3 (stable version), I’d like to announce that the next StationPlaylist Studio add-on update (18.09.2) is an important one for many of you:

 

  1. Version 18.09.2 will lock the update channel to longterm (LTS).
  2. If you plan to use stable version of the add-on (18.09.1 or 18,10), please SKIP this version.
  3. If you find that the update channel is not the one you want, go to addons.nvda-project.org, select StationPlaylist Studio, and download the appropriate version.

 

Version 18.09.2 of SPL Studio add-on will be released within the next 48 hours. Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: version of an application with nvda

Gene
 

You can usually do so by typing alt to open the menus, then typing h to open help, then a to open the about dialog.  So the sequence is alt h then a.  The number will be read.  If it isn't, use NVDA key b to have the dialog read.
 
You are doing this by using program commands.  JAWS uses proprietary commands to do something for which there is no reason.  It keeps people from learning the Windows ways of doing the things and makes them more dependent on JAWS.

Re: speech rate control

Gene
 

Someone else presented the short way.  If you didn’t see the message, hold control NVDA key and, while doing so, up or down arrow.  .  I never use it but I tried it after sending my message. 
 
You'll have to see if you like it.  Instead of skipping by one increment, the fast method skips by five increments.  this may or may not give you the control over speed you want.
 
If you change something else, such as the voice pitch, use the left and right arrows to move around the options until you get to speed.  Then use up and down arrow to change the speed.  I think it remembers what you set last so if you move to speed, you won't have to keep moving to speed.

You are right that this is cumbersome.
