hi


the following should help you and guide you in what to do. it is from off my website which is not accessible at the moment.


It will also give you links to signing up to git hub etc.


The basics of making a ticket for NVACCESS
From time to time you might need to report a bug so that it can be fixed. Before you report the bug, ask others on the list if they are getting the same results as you. NVACCESS will need as much information as possible so they can fix the problem.
Where to go to report a bug to be fixed
If you are a user of the NVDA screen reader (whether you use the Alpha snapshot, Alpha code, the Beta snapshot code or the stable version of NVDA that is released to the public); if you come across a bug, it can be reported at the following webpage https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues
If you want to test either the alpha snapshots or the beta snapshots, you can download them from the following link at https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/
If you find any bugs in the snapshots, a ticket can be made and reported - to be fixed by NVACESS.
Getting a GitHub account or simply signing in
To report any issues to be fixed, you must have a GitHub account.
If you do not have a GitHub account, you will need to go to the sign up link, then press the Enter key. It will ask you for a user name, email address and password. Once done, locate the create an account button, then press the Spacebar or Enter key for it to be created.
If you already have an account, it is just a matter of locating the sign in link and entering your details to log into GitHub.
After you have signed into GitHub
After you have signed into GitHub to report an issue on your page, you will have some links and buttons and headings. Do not worry about most of them. The first button is a search button, the second is a create new button, the third a view profile and more button, and a sign out button. You will need to look for a new issue button. This is found under the sign out button; then press the Enter key so a ticket can be created.
Before reporting a new issue, you should do a search to see if a ticket has already been made. If this is the case, you might be able to reply on another ticket if it matches the problems that you are having.  If one cannot be found, then you would create a new issue.
Searching for an issue on GitHub
Before you report an issue/bug to NVACCESS, you will need to do a search to see if anyone else has reported the bug. If one cannot be found then you will need to open a new issue. This is a button. Press the Enter key to do this.
A more direct link to make a ticket
If you have already signed up to GitHub, a more direct link to where you can make a ticket can be found at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new
You can arrow through the page to see all the sections.
As you go down the page, you will hear the following:
This will depend on if you arrow down the page or jump down by buttons. If you jump down by buttons, you will hear the following: (add header text button, add bold text button, add italic text button, insert a quote button, insert code button, add a link button, add a bulleted list button, add a numbered list button, add a task list button, insert a reply button, directly mention a user or team, reference an issue or pull request, browse button, and a submit new issue button).
In most cases, you will not be: inserting a reply (unless you are commenting on a ticket); using directly mention a user or team; or reference an issue or pull request (unless you are replying to a ticket).
You may find it easier to arrow through, rather than use single letter navigation keys to get all of the information.
Single letter navigation keys that can be used in browse mode
You can use B for buttons, K for links, E for edit areas and F for form fields.
They will need to know in the header and text edit area, what the issue is
For example
Steps to reproduce:
A list of the steps you take to demonstrate the problem.
Example:
1. Open Chrome
2. Browse to www.google.com
3. Type "Hello"
4. Notice an error sound when enter is pressed.
Please also remember to attach a zip of any files required to reproduce the issue.

Expected behavior:
Tell us what should happen.
Actual behavior:
Tell us what happens instead.
They will also need to know the NVDA version number, and whether it is an Alpha or a Beta snapshot. Also, they will need to know whether it is a portable or installed version of NVDA.

Other information
They may need other information such as if it was
Example: Running in a VM (virtual machine).
Windows version:
Example: Windows 10 Version 1607 Build 14393.1066
Other questions:
Does the issue still occur after restarting your PC?
Have you tried any other versions of NVDA?
Please list them and the result
Browse…
No files selected.
Attach files by dragging & dropping, selecting them, or pasting from the clipboard.
Under this section would be where you would post your NVDA log.
Make sure under the general settings in NVDA it is set to Logging level: debug.
If you are lucky someone on the list might do the ticket for you, but you will need to copy and paste the log into the email as attachments are blocked on the list.
After you have filled in the information that they require, locate the submit new issue button and your ticket will be created.
Steps needed to recreate the problem
Please note:
For NVACCESS to try and track down any bugs to be fixed, you need to have the steps to recreate the problem that you are having. Make sure your Logging level is set to debug under the General settings in NVDA. You can also obtain the log which it produces from the Tool…View log section in NVDA. A log will be produced after you press the Enter key on the view log menu. Press the Alt key until a menu drops down, then arrow down until you hear NVDA say “save log as…”, then press the ENTER key. NVDA will default to the filename, then it is a matter of tabbing until you hear a location to save the file to (such as the desktop) then Shift/Tab back to the save button, then press the Enter key on the save button.
Accessing your NVDA log
A much quicker way to get to your NVDA log is by pressing the NVDA key + F1 key, Ctrl then + letter A to select all characters, Ctrl + C to copy, & then pasting Ctrl key + letter V  into an email to send. Or it's in c:\users\username\AppData\local\temp\nvda.log (which you can just attach).
If you have to restart NVDA, then it's in c:\users\username\appdata\local\temp\nvda-old.log.
Miscellaneous information
If you are going to ask somebody else to submit a ticket on your behalf, you cannot add attachments to an email on the NVDA list. The contents of the log can be pasted in the email. If the NVDA log is emailed to another person off list, then the log can be added as an attachment to the ticket.
For more information on using GitHub with a screen reader (which goes beyond making a ticket) please go to the following link http://bats.fyi/2016/08/19/mastering-github-with-a-screen-reader-part-1/

Hi,

How are you all?

I have a question about the snapshots of NVDA.

I downloaded the latest snapshot. From September 19. And I would like to know if I have to file a bug, how do I do it? How can I open account on Github, and how can I file a bug?

 

Will I have to join a dev list or something?

 

Look forward to hear from you,

Afik.

Re: Add on updator and portible copy?

Hi


Just tried it in my beta version which was a portable version installed
the updater program along with a older version of nvda remote and works
nicely. It updated the remote add on to the latest.


I do have my portable version in a directory though called nvda beta.

necessary to point to the location where the add on file is located in
order to install it..  However, it may still be able to let the user
know that updates are available and which ones they are.

Hi

 

The website has been zipped you will need a program to unzip it. You can also do it with windows explorer but may be better to make a folder then put the files into it that is easy to find. Then it is a matter of just going to the index file with in the folder and pressing the enter key on it and use it like normal. As long as people have internet access they should be able to access audio files  etc.

 

There may be another tutorial been added on later this week so will update the link to the drop box account then.

 

I will let people know then.

 

The drop box link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/fh0ke305t6afduw/Accessibility%20Central%20Website.zip?dl=0

Hi guys

 

As you probably have noticed Accessibilitycentral.net has not be accessible and the following message comes up when you try to access one of the pages Website is temporarily down due to file system failure. Recovery is in progress, please check back later. Sorry for inconveniences

.

 

The people we host with were alerted when i first noticed it and it has to be fixed on there end. I do not know when it will be back up but hopefully it is ASAP.

 

I guess this is maybe what you get some times when you host with a free provider? with no adds and only have to pay for the domain name.

 

It sounds pretty serious like the server hard drive took a dive?

 

If any one wants to access the material on it at present I can zip it up and drop box it until it comes back on line.

This will only be the website files not the audio files as every one has access to the internet mostly.

 

You will then need to unzip it and put it into a folder with the files. Then it is a matter of just accessing the index file for the website.

 

I might again even look at other options for hosting.

 

Let us know and can drop box to the list.

Hi


The website has been zipped you will need a program to unzip it. You can also do it with windows explorer but may be better to make a folder then put the files into it that is easy to find. Then it is a matter of just going to the index file with in the folder and pressing the enter key on it and use it like normal. As long as people have internet access they should be able to access audio files  etc.


There may be another tutorial been added on later this week so will update the link to the drop box account then.


I will let people know then.


The drop box link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/fh0ke305t6afduw/Accessibility%20Central%20Website.zip?dl=0

The people we host with were alerted when i first noticed it and it has to be fixed on there end. I do not know when it will be back up but hopefully it is ASAP.


I guess this is maybe what you get some times when you host with a free provider? with no adds and only have to pay for the domain name.


It sounds pretty serious like the server hard drive took a dive?


If any one wants to access the material on it at present I can zip it up and drop box it until it comes back on line.

This will only be the website files not the audio files as every one has access to the internet mostly.


You will then need to unzip it and put it into a folder with the files. Then it is a matter of just accessing the index file for the website.


I might again even look at other options for hosting.

Yes, I'm aware that both Education and Enterprise (and even S, I think) have end-of-life dates that are longer than those for the same versions of Home and Pro.

That being said, and also realizing that institutions of all sorts are notoriously loath to update, they need to be coming into the Windows as a service era as well.  It would be one thing to be on 1709 at this juncture, but 1703 is jaw-dropping.

Whether anyone likes it or not the WAAS model is here to stay, and trying to maintain glacially slow update protocols is ridiculous.  I worked for many years with several different state agencies and the resistance to updating was both stupid and appalling.  Organizations were still running on Windows XP years, plural, into the Windows 7 era.  I'm sure the same is true for Windows 7 in the Windows 10 era.  But if you, as an institution, decide to go with Windows 10 you had better realize that you simply cannot hang on for nearly as long as you used to get away with.   The goal should carefully controlled and post-bleeding-edge updates preferably no more than one version cycle behind the most current (and preferably with a small, in-house test bed that goes to the next version almost at the same time as "the rest of the world" so that any issues specific to the venue can be worked out on a small scale first).

Hi guys


As you probably have noticed Accessibilitycentral.net has not be accessible and the following message comes up when you try to access one of the pages Website is temporarily down due to file system failure. Recovery is in progress, please check back later. Sorry for inconveniences

.


The people we host with were alerted when i first noticed it and it has to be fixed on there end. I do not know when it will be back up but hopefully it is ASAP.


I guess this is maybe what you get some times when you host with a free provider? with no adds and only have to pay for the domain name.


It sounds pretty serious like the server hard drive took a dive?


If any one wants to access the material on it at present I can zip it up and drop box it until it comes back on line.

This will only be the website files not the audio files as every one has access to the internet mostly.


You will then need to unzip it and put it into a folder with the files. Then it is a matter of just accessing the index file for the website.


I might again even look at other options for hosting.


Let us know and can drop box to the list.

For details, go to those menues and discover how much those menues are accessible.

I’m very sorry to let you know that most of us do not like to spend sometimes to explore new things and want to stick with old technology.

NVDA & NVDA Add-On Archive Pages - Has there been consideration to creating these?

 

I have always found it a bit odd that NVAccess does not have, at least that I know of, an "Older Versions" page much like JAWS and many other software houses do.

It has become abundantly clear that there will be times when NVDA, or an NVDA Add-On, ends up being updated but that causes a lot of other stuff to break for an individual user for a wide variety of reasons.   It would be really nice if it were possible for the end user to have quick and ready access to, say, the immediately previous two or three releases of NVDA and the same for the Add-Ons.

Right now the roll-back process, unless one has created one's own personal archive of installers, is a cyclic one-off effort where someone "on the inside" has to dig out a link that can be used to get an older release.  Since these do not change after they are released (at least not typically) and certainly don't change once the next release is out in their prior release form, having archival access with ease just makes sense.

Strange pronunciations

Hi,

After upgrading to NVDA 2018.3, eSpeak is strangely pronouncing all words with the letter "y" when in the Portuguese brazilian language.

For example, the word "system" is being pronounced as "zystem".

Can someone communicate this to the eSpeak team?

Hi
In the early 80's I used a German made, non-software based screen reader called Frank Audio Data to access Dos on IBM PC XT machines. The original was a replacement PC keyboard with the addition of horizontal and vertical slider controls topped with read buttons. Due to the screen in those days being 25 x 80 character cells, the sliders gave you tactile feedback and this, combined with audio output from the hardware provided excellent screen orientation. A later model retained the sliders in two separate units which worked alongside the standard PC keyboard. I found it extremely difficult to transition from DOS to Windows after working in an environment where I knew exactly how the screen looked to being unable to form a mental image of the screen layout.

Cheers
Chris

A friend of mine, her ein Italy, has been assigned a thesis on the

She doesn't seem to find any suitable material.

Would anyone have any suggestions as to where to look for some

I know the request is a bit vague, but that's all I ahve for now.

Thanks in advance.

Lost this thread, but now found it, wanted to send this site to you and friend.
Before Screen Readers, There had to be readers!
The site below is an auditory history of early speech synthesizers. Each sample has a brief description of who where and when it was developed. Obviously screen readers needed intelligible voices to be of any worth. It is incredible to see how far the technology developed and what approaches were used along the way.

Actually, I tried.  I bought the rights to the windowbridge source
code, but UPS lost the pc as it was being shipped from Canada to me
here in the U.S.  His brother did send me cds with as much material as
he could find before sending the computer, but unfortunately, since he
wasn't a programmer, he missed some vital libraries required for the
proper compile of windowbridge, and since the ocmputer was lost, I was
never able to do anything with it.  Quite a shame really, since I
personally thought it was an excellent product, and was very happy to
have gotten the rights to it.

Very interesting indeed. I'd never heard of this one. I worked at IBM during the '80's, but I used "dumb" terminale attached to mainframes or medium-size office systems. I did translations, not programming, so I worked with text processing programmes and an Optacon.

Ciao,

Hi
In the early 80's I used a German made, non-software based screen reader called Frank Audio Data to access Dos on IBM PC XT machines. The original was a replacement PC keyboard with the addition of horizontal and vertical slider controls topped with read buttons. Due to the screen in those days being 25 x 80 character cells, the sliders gave you tactile feedback and this, combined with audio output from the hardware provided excellent screen orientation. A later model retained the sliders in two separate units which worked alongside the standard PC keyboard. I found it extremely difficult to transition from DOS to Windows after working in an environment where I knew exactly how the screen looked to being unable to form a mental image of the screen layout.

Cheers
Chris

Hi
going back farther still, the Apple 2E in the late 70s and early 80s had
the text Tucker screen reader with the echo Cricket speech synthesizer. You
can actually download be accessible mess Apple 2 emulator and see it
working in action today if you want to.

No, they go back further than dos. The comodore 64 ran cp/m, and it had
a screen reader too, so screen reading packages didn't start with dos.

Try the NFB, they should have a historical perspective.

thesis

Hello all,

Please, forgive this O.T. This is the only list I'm on, so I thought of
asking here.

A friend of mine, her ein Italy, has been assigned a thesis on the history
and evolution of screen readers for Windows.

She doesn't seem to find any suitable material.

Would anyone have any suggestions as to where to look for some
documentation that might help her?

I know the request is a bit vague, but that's all I ahve for now.

Thanks in advance.

Ciao,
Ollie

Hi, everyone,

 

I’m using the mail app now and I do really like it. How do I turn off the “sent with mail” part of the signature? I don’t want to always hear that after signing a message.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Rosemarie
