In terms of your Microsoft Office issue, it sounds like you need to adjust Microsoft Office startup. In newer versions of Microsoft Offic,e a panel comes up with recent files and templates, with the assumption that you probably want to work on something you recently worked on, and will find it in that panel. There is a setting available to have the program just open a new document when opened directly instead of via an associated file.
Let me know if you have trouble finding the settings, though I am running a slightly older version of Word.

Hello everyone,
Does anyone know of any partition management software that allows for
resizing of a drive partition without destroying the data?
I use image for windows to image my hard drive and that works great
for that but does not have an option for resizing the partition.
Thanks guys,

Re: ergent help needed with phonetic transcriptions

Jonathan COHN
 

Well, I have seen no resources for NVDA, but a professor at Rice University has worked extensively on a Braille version of IPA and has also written a guide to getting IPA to work with JAWS.

A good starting point is from the Braille Monitor at:
https://nfb.org/images/nfb/publications/bm/bm13/bm1302/bm130211.htm

I expect the instructions for JAWS might be easily modified to work with NVDA but I have no idea how the UNICODE character maps for NVDA are defined.

The article also mentions that Duxbury can translate IPA Unicode into Braille but no mention of lib-louis.


Best Wishes,

Jonathan

hi Brian,

This is for a morphology essay, and I am trying to find another Ph.D student to go over the examples with me, as many of them are written in IPA, and bracketed in foreign languages. I am trying to understand the matterial as best as I can without the examples.

enes,

         What font are they using for the IPA?  There was a recent discussion of this in the JAWS group, Jaws and International Phonetic Alphabet.

          There are a limited number of IPA fonts that have the capability of being read character-by-character, which is what would be needed here.  It should be up to the instructor, to make sure that material is supplied in accessible format.  If the material is really, really extensive I have to say that it is sometimes easier to have a human reader, but not always.  It's always messy with the IPA since the character names are long and, if you get into diacritics, it gets even messier.

Re: ergent help needed with phonetic transcriptions

enes sarıbaş
 

hi,

There is the international phonetic alphabet, in which each letter corresponds to a sound in human language. The problem is, NVDA will not pronounce the letters correctly, moreover, I do not know what letter each of them stand for because of this. NVDA will usually read them with wierd and unusual names, or just say symbol 3b32C or something similar and skip over them.

Source seems to be the only word of that general pronunciation that it
messed up. It does alright with horse. As my last message I found that
edge is still my default browser. Short between the head sets. Chrome has
a big button labeled make this your default browser but Microsoft must have

Do you see the link if you tab when browse mode is off?  We need to determine if this is a problem with tabbing, a Windows command, or if NVDA skips the link in browse mode but not in forms mode.

Yes but unfortunately I've tried the others too and still find it odd. So
its obviously a link, so tab should find it whatever it is as you say, but
only k does that is how  I know it has to be a link, but apparently
sometimes an invisible link to tab.

Pressing the letter K or shift-K moves between links but it does not move
focus to other controls, such as buttons, edit fields, etc. Pressing tab or

is. Now this is the speed I’ve been waiting for since FF 57 came out almost
a year ago. Thanks NV Access. I now use both JAWS and NVDA and JAWS 2019 at

beta. Hope this will carry over to 2018.4 final build.

And it's not really intended to be read, in the conventional sense of the word. It's the graphical representation of a sound sequence as close to "literally" as you can get it. When you "read" something in IPA you're not conventionally reading it like text but creating a sound stream of phonemes based on their IPA symbols. It's certainly nothing like reading any natural language that has a written form (sign language being one of the natural languages that has no written form, and there are others).

enes,

What font are they using for the IPA? There was a recent discussion of this in the JAWS group, Jaws and International Phonetic Alphabet. ( https://jfw.groups.io/g/main/topic/jaws_and_international/27829868?p=,,,20,0,0,0::recentpostdate%2Fsticky,,,20,0,140,27829868 )

There are a limited number of IPA fonts that have the capability of being read character-by-character, which is what would be needed here. It should be up to the instructor, to make sure that material is supplied in accessible format. If the material is really, really extensive I have to say that it is sometimes easier to have a human reader, but not always. It's always messy with the IPA since the character names are long and, if you get into diacritics, it gets even messier.
