Re: converting EPUB to word offline

 Alright. Thank you guys for your suggestions!

I convert epub or pdf files to word as it is easier to add comments and highlight text.. This is especially useful  while revising documents later on.

Re: Pumbered Lists in Word

Jonathan COHN
 

Are you using the programs auto-numbering to number your paragraphs? Also, which version of Word are you using. If you would like to send me a private copy of an example file, I would be glad to figure out the best option.

Take care,

Jonathan Cohn

Hi,

When something like this happens to me, which is quite often, I find
that restarting NVDA by pressing control+alt+n does the trick and
things come back to normal.

All the best,

Akbar

It could be any number of things, but if you have a specific file that

Re: FW: [nvda-addons] Project Pylennium: updates, proposing start of Python 3 pre-transition activities

 

Hi,
Windows 7 SP1 support: this is the reason why Espeak NG readiness is a
priority for some of us so folks on that OS can test it once binary versions
are ready.
Regarding 64-bit NVDA, as stated many times in the past, although it has
advantages, it could reduce appeal of NVDA for those wishing to use it as a
portable copy across bit boundaries.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi, I'd just like to clarify that no actual release of nvda powered by the

Also what is the attitude these days to a 64 bit version on nvda itself, as
I feel such a move may well impact on some of the current bottlenecks in
processor core usage and other issues.

You won't feel the impact of what I outline regarding Python 3
transition for a while, but when it does, please listen to notices
from NV Access and add-on authors regarding Python 3. And no, wxPython

Subject: [nvda-addons] Project Pylennium: updates, proposing start of
Python
3 pre-transition activities



Dear NVDA development and add-ons communities:



This is Joseph Lee, a student at California State University, Los
Angeles and a long-time NVDA add-on author and code contributor. I'd
like to announce some important updates regarding Project Pylennium.



For a while, some NVDA developers (mostly third-party contributors)
have been working on how to bring Project Pylennium - Python 3
transition - to life. After much discussion, NV Access and other
developers agreed to wait until a stable NVDA version powered by
wxPython 4.0.3 (Phoenix) is released before working on this project.
Now that NVDA 2018.3.x (powered by wxPython
4) has been released, it is time to move forward with this project a
bit, starting with pre-transition activities.



To kick this off, I'm delighted to announce that a prototype archive
of NVDA source code and dependencies powered by Python 3 is now
available. Apart from removal of data generated by SCons, the archive
is ready to run on Python 3.7 with some preparations, and. are you
ready for it: IT RUNS!
Well,
I must add that there are some important features missing or not
working as intended, but I'm sure this will be rectified as the
project moves forward.



Note that the archive is a prototype - please do not test this unless
your intention is to provide contributions to Python 3 transition
workflow once NV Access is ready to accept pull requests.



Archive link:

https://www.josephsl.net/files/pylennium/nvdapy37.zip



Things working:



* Windows OneCore synthesizer
* Python Console
* Sending log output to log file
* Object navigation commands
* Commands to configure options (NVDA+number row 2, for instance)
* Loading app modules



Things to be aware of:



* Requires Windows 10 until Espeak NG is ready.
* NVDA menu won't open due to division operator differences between
Python 2 nad 3
* Add-ons won't load
* Certain synth settings ring commands won't work
* Some braille displays won't work



The idea is to let seasoned developers (preferably third-party
contributors and/or a group of mainstream Python developers) test
ideas and porting issues and report their findings to NV Access. In
turn, when it comes time to actually transition NVDA source code and
add-ons to Python 3, data can be used to guide future work.



Second, a wiki page is being written to help you all move smoothly to
Python
3 and to coordinate this workflow. The document is subject to change based
on progress of pre-transition activities. The page in its current form can
be found at:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/nvdapy3



As always, the umbrella issue on Python 3 transition can be found on
GitHub
at:

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7105



Along with other issues having "python 3" label added to them.



Lastly, I'd like to announce that I'm stepping back from Python 3
transition
workflow at this time (and, for that matter, NVDA code contributions for a
while). Besides automatic braille display detection (written by Babbage
B.V.) and various Windows 10 features support (mostly my work), the
biggest
change (and the most controversial one) in NVDA 2018.3.x has been moving
to
wxPython 4 (mostly my work with assistance from many). The results matched
my predictions from earlier this year: some notable add-ons not being
compatible with wxPython 4, hence notices throughout this summer (winter
for
those living in southern hemisphere).



At the moment I have mixed feelings about how we (NvDA community) handled
this change. Yes, wxPython 4 is a necessary stepping stone for moving to
Python 3, and yes, I understand that I was rather forceful in handling
certain parts of this journey. There are good things we did, and lessons
we
have learned so we can make Python 3 transition a smoother experience.
Even
for me, it was an interesting ride for the last three years (wxPython
Phoenix research began in 2015), and I know that I could have done things
better.



Recently, I hinted to some that my time as an active contributor to NVDA
screen reader is slowly coming to a close. As a first step, I'd like to
ask
that the community take an initiative to move forward with Python 3
transition (including other pre-transition activities); I feel that the
best
thing I can do for this work now is to provide the prototype archive and a
vision for its conclusion, along with some pull requests (one of them is
pending review). There is a feature I'd like to present as a token of
appreciation to those who've helped me for the past six years: add-on
update
checks, which will be impacted by Python 3 transition as well. But this
does
not mean I'm leaving the community: I'll still be around to give advice
regarding Project Pylennium.



Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Web Browsers

Dave <dlh007@...>
 

Hello Ian,

Yes, I too noticed a Snappier behavior from this latest version of NVDA.

I was using FireFox.

As for the various Browsers being able to read all buttons, or Links, or
different aspects on a Web Site- Yes, I too have noticed this.

I have been looking for work lately, and when on www.monster.com, a
Employment Web Site, Sometimes I can read the Needed Links, and then
other times, those links are not seen.

Or once I've used them once, even if I return to the Main page of the
web site, for what ever reason, I cannot find or read these links. Have
to shut down my Browser, and then re-visit the same site, and then those
links will show up, but only sometimes. Go Figure!

And as far as differences between Screen Readers, Yes there too, I have
noticed that one will read something better than the others. I am a
long time Window eyes user, who moved over to Jaws, and have had NVEA as
the Screen Reader I call up to bail me out of Trouble when the others
stop speaking.

Over the last five years or so, I have actually found NVDA to be getting
stronger and stronger. In fact, when I needed to switch over to JAWS,
at that time, I almost just switched to NVDA. I have one program that
NVDA will not read the screens, and Jaws does, so have been using Jaws.

But, like I said, NVDA has come a long way, and is actually a very good
Screen Reader.

Sadly yes, the whole thing really seems to be poor web design. It will be interesting to see what the impending new visual search on Amazon operates like for a blind user and whether simply having it there will break something else. Sounds like a worrying trend.

Hello. The latest version of NVDA is working really well and I'd say, better than ever for my uses. So, thanks to everyone involved for your efforts.

I do a lot of online shopping on sites ranging from Coals and Woolworths Supermarkets to clothing shops and occasionally Ebay. Do others have the same issue as me with webb sites working better with a variety of Browsers? This morning I started by using Chrome on the Just Jeans site but couldn't find the Payment button. I changed to FireFox, then to WaterFox and still couldn't find the Pay button. Good old IE turned out to be the only one I had that gave me access to that button.

When I am really up against the technology, good old Window-Eyes has been known to be the solution but this is rare these days.

Any comments?

Thank you.

Some programs don't track properly in terms of where the mouse should be when you move it. Others who may know more may have suggestions. I imagine the sighted person is asking you about focus because they are trying to learn what you are doing. Isn't there a way that a sighted user can see what a blind person is doing in terms of their position on screen? Not where the mouse is, but where they are working. If that is correct, could that feature be used instead of the unreliable mouse tracking that evidently exists in the program?

Does it really matter where the mouse cursor is?
Sighted people need to note that trying to use the mouse is only going to confuse people if said person is a software writer. They need to separate the carats so to speak. I'm sure there is a play on the sound of words pun in there somewhere, but I'm not going to say it!

It could be any number of things, but if you have a specific file that always exhibits the behaviour, and a copy of your NVDA log, if you email them both to info@... with a description of how to reproduce the issue, I can have a look and see if I can find anything.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi
We have been working within excel but every now and then NVDA will stop talking and we don't know why? We are usually in the charting section. Is there an easy fix we can put in or a shortcut we can use to get nvda working again?

Thanks

Re: WORKING WITHIN EXCEL

Hi

We have been finding it stops intermittently and the only way to restart is by restarting the computer. We are using newest version of nvda and excel 2016. We are finding it is happening more so with charts

Thanks

I think it is hard coded in the voice directly.


Webb Browsers

Ian Westerland
 

Hello. The latest version of NVDA is working really well and I'd say, better than ever for my uses. So, thanks to everyone involved for your efforts.

I do a lot of online shopping on sites ranging from Coals and Woolworths Supermarkets to clothing shops and occasionally Ebay. Do others have the same issue as me with webb sites working better with a variety of Browsers? This morning I started by using Chrome on the Just Jeans site but couldn't find the Payment button. I changed to FireFox, then to WaterFox and still couldn't find the Pay button. Good old IE turned out to be the only one I had that gave me access to that button.

When I am really up against the technology, good old Window-Eyes has been known to be the solution but this is rare these days.

Any comments?

Thank you.
