I don't know what those people are talking about. I remember what I
hear just fine.

It's a good question. Although I definitely know the difference between
"wonder" and "wander." I've been blind since birth. Although I did learn
braille when I was in school. Problem is, I've had data retention issues
my entire life. As in I turn the page, and completely forget what I was
reading.

It's just easier for me to listen, because I actually retain more
that way. People say you only retain about 10-15% of what you hear, but
I think for me it's probably about 50 or 60% at least.

Re: Internet radio software recommended for use with NVDA?

I'm using Simple Radio. The Windows 10 app is usable, not accessible. Although it's fully accessible on Android.

Now, while I understand paying for worthwhile software, I tried out the demo version of the new software, and, didn't like it's reworked interface, and, secondly, I don't see why I should pay for something like this if there are free alternatives that people would recommend?


So, suggestions on what to try out?


Would be nice if you could record it's output via the software, but, that's not the end of the world, since the main thing is being able to browse station categories/catalogues, being able to then control playback, audio output, etc. etc.

Re: Installing SAPI voices for NVDA on a windows 10 machine

Sile, there are a couple things you can do. The first is to switch to
Narrator & register your Eloquence using that.

If you can't or don't wish to, perhaps this will help:
Press NVDA+control+s to get to the synthesizer menu, then press w for
windows 1core or home for ESpeak.

Please let us know if that helps.

The next time I tried to log into the machine, I got passed the log-in

Has anyone ever had this happen? If so, what can I do to fix it? I

Re: autocorrect in Word 365

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Giles,

It looks like there are a couple of issues here:

1) Emoji not reading properly.  I wonder if that is related to this issue: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/8782 which would explain the emoji being read as a number.  It looks like there has been some work done on that issue, but it still needs a little more attention before going into Alpha builds.

The other issue is that of Word replacing :) with a smiley emoticon: 😊 - rather than adding an exception in to auto-correct, you should be able to delete the existing auto-correction:

alt+f, t for Options
control+tab twice to "Proofing"
alt+a for "Autocorrect options"
down arrow to the smiley options, :(, :-(, etc.
Pick any and press alt+d to delete

Regards

Quentin.

Hi all,

I occasionally use smiley face and winking smiley face, :) and ;) respectively, but when I do in Word it automatically converts them to what NVDA says is “12” (that's what I hear and that's what the speech viewer says). It does this for both versions of the smiley.
I have just added :) and ;) into the exceptions of the autocorect options and it is not making any difference.

I do use the NVDA emoticons addin so am confused why I am hearing the number 12 rather than the type of face. Also, I'm a bit of a gek for old school ascii emoticons so would prefer to stick to them being a colon and a right parenthesis rather than a graphical smiley face.

I'm using the latest NVDA, Windows 10 and Office 365

Grateful for any suggestions :)

Giles

Re: Internet radio software recommended for use with NVDA?

What didn't you like about the interface?  You don't have to pay to use it because of a design flaw or bug, whetever it is. 
 
After the demo period runs out, if you open the program and start it playing, it will be fully functional for a few minutes.
Then, an ok button will come up.  If you have already decided to listen to a specific station and have it playing, it will play that station until you activate the ok button.  The program will then close and the default web browser will open to the Tapin site.  of course, you can just close it.
 
To keep the playlist current, use the search for updates feature at intervals.  I haven't tried to see how often updates come out.  My impression is something like once a month or two.

Not trying to make anybody mad here, but it really is disconcerting to see so many people here using wander and wonder interchangeably.
Wander (with an"A" ) is what you do when you're out and about, and don't have any particular place to be, and you just feel like taking your time to see what's going on around you.  You wander around, looking at things, and simply taking things easy.
On the other hand, wonder (with an "O" ) is what you do when you're curious about something.  Yeah, it's ok to wonder about life, the universe and everything, but if you wander about such things, you may never find your way back to your back yard, having being swept off into galaxies unknown.
And, of course, it's perfectly acceptable to wonder about wandering too, especially if you're wondering why so many people wander into things.



Re: Uninstalling an app installed via windows 10 store

 

Well I have used ccleaner to uninstall things, I assume that add remove programs will work to.

However even if you kill it you will have to click see more in store then downloads then there is a drop down box for owned or downloaded or installed, select owned, then you need to hide that app else it will just install it again.

Probably in settings > apps > apps and features

From the list of installed apps select the one to uninstall

then hit enter to expand

then tab to uninstall button

then hit enter

Ok, and, just after sent this, figured out a way to handle it - start menu, programs, and looked the apps sub-menu, and, under there found the item was wanting to uninstall, triggered the context menu on it, and, there was a menu item to uninstall it.
