Hello,

Yes it could be Portuguese but since the voice I'm using is a bit of a mess outside of English it could be Klingon.
Could the original person be using the 32 bit version of Firefox on windows 7?
I know that can give rise to some very odd results.

Hi Group,


The page displays just fine, but I don't understand the language, so anything more than the fact that it seems OK superficially would be difficult for me to analyze.

Re: Microsoft word question

Often, just because a resource is for JAWS doesn't mean it can't be used by other screen-reader users.  If this material contains JAWS specific commands, then you may not be able to use those commands.  But if there are equivalent commands in NVDA and you know them or learn them, then you may be able to use the information.  Or the information may not be JAWS specific or some or much of it may not.  Just because a JAWS source is given doesn't mean it can't be used.  And if JAWS commands are given, you can ask if there are equivalents on the list. 
 
In this case, I didn't look at the material and I don't know what information is given so I can't comment on the usefulness of the material.  But it shouldn't be assumed to be useless.  I would suggest reading it to find out.

Re: NVDA Snapshot types

Quentin Christensen
 

Yes, you can download the latest alpha snapshot from: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/

If you install the alpha build, then yes, when it checks for updates each day, it will report when a new alpha build is available.

Note that left to its own devices, NVDA checks once a day / when started 24 hours after it last checked, so it may not see an update immediately - particularly with alpha updates where there sometimes might be several in a day.  That's usually not a problem, but worth bearing in mind.

Quentin.

While I don't disagree with you, most of the errors and issues which have required additional RC's and stable releases, have been from issues which do not affect everyone, but for those they affect, they would manifest very quickly.  Which is why we get these reports almost immediately after releasing the new version.

 

I think then, that the issue is not so much the length of time of the beta cycle, but how do we get more people, on different systems, to try the betas earlier?

Yes I have a portable running on Alpha, but I seem to recall that before the

weeks sounds a short time for the great unwashed like myself to have enough

think the release record of the last version shows this to be true as there
had to be many more iterations of the RC and finally a couple of updates to
stable. If you look back when the beta length was longer you find fewer
versions after a stable was issued.
 In a way I think many programmers underestimate the time needed to fully
test increasingly complex code.
 I used to know a person whose first test of any software was to randomly do
stuff on the keyboard and you would be surprised how often such an
apparently random act would thro up a problem with the software crashing.

Hi Keith,

I did update the questions, but it looks like they're not live yet.  Probably something I've missed, but Mick is away all week and I'll need to get him to press the magic "Make it go live" button when he gets back.  Apologies for the delay!

Kind regards

Hi Keith,

 

If you haven't purchased anything else, you can create a new account from: https://www.nvaccess.org/my-account/

 

If you have purchased other things (eg training material), you will need to recover your existing account in order to retrieve those (there is no pre-requisite for the original certification exam, though ideally you'd only want one account).

 

In the meantime, I will look into our system, just in case there is any issue with sending out the password recovery email.

Does anyone have a suggestion for what I should do next? I tried going to the login page directly, as an old message on this group said you could create an account from there. But I didn’t find that option.

 

Any suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.

Re: Some time nvda seems quite laggy in my laptop. I am using asus laptop with windows 10 1803, latest version of nvda and I have 8 gb ram along with ssd as well Most of the time nvda is unable to respond specially on file explorer, eg When I open this-pc nvda stop reading all those list as local disk c, d and other shortcut icon. This is mainly happening when I am using some other program in the background, if I am downloading some thing then I open file explorer then nvda keeps quite. In another case if I had close other running program and open file explorer then also nvda’s feedback is very slow and laggy. I do have another disappointing experience with nvda, mainly I have to work in a Microsoft office’s program like word, excel etc in their also nvda gives very let respond while typing and reading. Please fixed this issue if possible, thankyou Madhusudan ghimire from Nepal.

Hi,

I responded over the weekend on Facebook and to your direct message about this, so I won't repeat the conversation here (for anyone else, try restarting NVDA with addons disabled, ensure you are using the latest version of NVDA, and consider trying the latest alpha snapshot.  Also consider what else is happening on the PC, and also consider using a less frugal power setting in Windows.  Some people find they need to use "Always On", others can use a more power saving setting).

What I did want to add here though, was that you've written your entire message in the subject.  In email, it is best to write only a few words in the subject "NVDA lagging in File Explorer", for instance, and write the main text and further description in the body of the message itself.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: No voice, Power Point Slide Show view on Laptop with HDMI connected, NVDA restart fixes problem

Pranav Lal
 

Hi Rick,

I am unable to duplicate your problem probably because I do not have HDMI on
my desktop. I have however used NVDA on laptops and connected them to HDMI
projectors without problems. My suggestion came from my experiences with USB
sound cards. Setting a specific sound card helped mitigate the problem that
NVDA would switch to a USB sound card when that card was inserted. HDMI was
doing something similar hence I thought the same solution would work.

It appears the solution failed, sorry about that.

I did try running a presentation in slide show mode and NVDA began to speak
without any effort.

Re: No voice, Power Point Slide Show view on Laptop with HDMI connected, NVDA restart fixes problem

Rick
 

Hello Pranav:

Before making this suggestion, were you able to replicate my exact problem
and determine that this fixed it.

I changed the NVDA setting to use the internal speaker and added slide
transition sounds to my Power Point slide show. NVDA now spoke on internal
speakers while window sounds played on HDMI. NVDA does the same exact thing
when the slide show is started (no voice on the slide show window, but
speaks everywhere else when alt tabbing away from the slide show window.
Power point slide transition sounds were played on the HDMI device (i.e.
TV). Sadly, restarting NVDA no longer fixed the problem and NVDA simply did
not speak on the slide show window.

Changing NVDA back to sound mapper and now restart of NVDA no longer
corrects when restarted. Now I have a computer that simply won't speak the
slide content when connected to HDMI, even after restarting NVDA.

I think this is a bug in NVDA.

Don't ya just love computers?!?

Rick,

Set your output device in NVDA specifically which should solve the problem.
I think the usual setting is microsoft sound mapper. Set the output device
to your internal sound card. That way, when your computer begins sending
audio over HDMI, NVDA will continue speaking through the internal sound
card.

If I an correct I think only the older version of codex will convert Amazon Kindle books to txt.

I tested them both and you do not need jaws installed in order to use them.

Ah... That would be great, thanks!


If there's a link from which it can be downloaded, I can grab it. But I
don't think I found it as a standalone app.

Ciao,

Ollie, somebody can send you FS Reader. You don't have to have JFW for it to work.

Hello here,


What about a free Daisy reader for those poor users who haven't got Jaws on their pcs? Is there anything available?


Thanks, ciao,

I just ran FSReader as well and it runs fine with NVDA running.

This is strange.

I have just gone back  and run FS Reader without any issue using the latest NVDA release.

I have Jaws 18 and 19 Beta installed on this system though.

It may be that the software now checks for a Jaws licence even if it is not running.

If this is so I am sorry for misleading the list as I was unaware of this change.

You say that but I did this and tried to use it and it said you have to have

Jaws running to use this software.

That did not used to happen before this year.

FS Reader works fine in NVDA.

Just install Jaws and let it alone and run FS Reader and use it withNVDA.
