Re: ergent help needed with phonetic transcriptions

John Isige
 

That's not really true though. Take the IPA 'j', that has the sound of a
'y' at the beginning of words in English, like 'young'. Obviously I
picked an easy one that you can represent with the normal Latin
alphabet. But you basically go "this character here means what we call a
lateral spirant, which is this noise", in case anybody's wondering
that's the so-called double-l in Welsh, among other languages, e.g.
Navajo. So yes, it was developed by sighted people. But there's nothing
particularly sighted about it. I could just say 'cdj' represents the
final sound in the English word 'edge'. Put another way, everybody has
to learn it. There's nothing about sight that makes you look at an 's'
with a mark under it and immediately go "ah yes, that's the 'sh' sound,
as in English 'ship"! You learn that when you learn the IPA. Now, maybe
it's harder because nobody bothered to name the IPA characters. But
assuming for the moment that they all have some sort of name attached to
them, all you need to know is that currently unannounced character foo
means noise bar, and of course you need character foo to be announced as
character foo.

Well, and not for the purpose of being nasty or contrary, nothing

This is a particular instance where no matter what the accessibility

only accessed by sight, that is a transcription of sound.  It is
particularly and peculiarly unsuited to any methods currently known
and the only thing I can think of would be if one could get a
synthesizer to read the IPA graphemes as phonemes, one-by-one, and
even that doesn't come close to connected speech.

I have said, on many occasions, that sometimes there is no substitute
for sight and that all accessibility is a workaround which imposes
specific limitations not posed by media being "consumed" in the
sensory modality for which it was explicitly designed.

We got challenged to IPA the alphabet as in the sound for a would be in my case a diphthong as that's how I myself say it. And b would be 2 sounds etc. It's actually quite interesting and helped me with my german when I was singing good luck with nvda and IPA. I never used it in windows.

Precisely.

I also don't know how to explain that we who see and are examining material in the IPA are not trying to read it, but are really using it to "sound it out."

As you're also a Brian, you know what our shared name sounds like.  It would be written in IPA so that linguists, or non-native speakers of a given language, can sound out how we pronounce it.  No one ever reads it character by character using the actual IPA character name, but using the sound (AKA phoneme) that the character represents.

The list that John Isige presented is not comprehensive, either (and, John, that's not a swipe at you, it's just an observation).  A number of the common vowel digraphs of English are missing.

All of this takes me back to when I was studying speech and language pathology for my master's and put together a child-language checksheet for order of acquisition of various English phonemes, morphological markers, as well as interactional skills/communicative intents (among other things).

The other one is about windows 10 using nvda it sounds like it is a good book to get it talks about the entire system but what I don't get is when you first get a new computer that has windows 10 it does not have word installed and in the book it mentions and walks you through windows 10 and one of the lessons is managing and saving documents mentions word plus there are several lessons about microsoft word. It is good but I just want a book mainly about windows 10 minus the stuff about word. The book does cost around
150 dollars it sounds like a good resource was wondering has anyone bought the books from the website and how good are they? I would also like a copy of the book as well if anyone has that could they email that to me? The books are an immersion in to NVDA

Is the old OCR add-on installed and running? If it is, disable it. NVDA doesn't use that add-on for OCR. I don't know if it could, but perhaps if you have the add-on running, it is causing the problem.

That cut off is a sound driver issue. Its been mentioned here before. I suspect you are suffering from the driver problems I seem to remember somebody saying that an add on that pretends to play a silent sound all the time fixes the unmute too late issues on these silly drivers.
As for the rest, well, I still suspect its drivers myself.

Re: FW: [bhp] NVDA

erik burggraaf <erik@...>
 

Does anyone know if the person reporting this issue has tried the visual studio add-on for nvda?

Development on this add-on has stagnated, but I believe 2010 is supported and it may do some good.

I don't program in visual basic, but I do use visual studio on a daily basis, and most of it works very well. I am using visual studio 2017 and that may make a huge difference. It's not super feasible to support 8 year old versions of software.  I think it's safe to say, jaws is heavily scripted for visual studio 2010.  I think it's also fair to say that Microsoft in-house concern over accessibility has taken many leaves forward in the past 8 years.  it certainly is not where it completely needs to be at this point, but I think you might get a lot more mileage out of upgrading if at all possible.

Best,

Erik

Hi,

As Adriani noted, there are a couple of issues on GitHub which could be similar.  A couple of questions to follow up:

You said several different versions of NVDA - so this is not a new issue, it has been present for some time?  Did it used to work at one point, or has it always been a problem?

Does it cause an error or a crash, in either NVDA or Visual Studio, or make NVDA unresponsive - aside from not being able to read text in Visual Studio, if you say, alt+tab to another window does NVDA work?

If you could set NVDA's log level to "debug", then repeat the program with NVDA, and then email me a copy of your NVDA log to info@..., that would be very helpful please.

There is some info on our log files here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/LogFilesAndCrashDumps

Dear all.

as you all know, NVDA 2018.4 is on the way. at the moment, the

developers' version is available to check for probable problems.

there's a problem which I have seen with different versions of NVDA.

it won't say anything in Visual Basic in Microsoft visual studio. I

have tried it on Microsoft visual studio 2010. it's fine with the

design area. but it keeps being completely silent while the text

editor area is on the foreground. I have no account on Github. but if

you have one, please let them know about this very significant

problem, so that it can be fixed in the next release. it's kind of

important. because you can't simply edit what you write within the

text-editing environment. as a result, programming gets difficult on

visual basic in microsoft visual studio 2010, using NVDA. please do

tell the NVAccess team about this major problem. note: this is not the

case with JAWS. it's fine with VB in MS Visual Studio 2010. you can

easily move with design and text-editing area with jaws. therefore,

you can easily edit what you've written in the text editor

environment.

take care.

Hello Ralph,

Did you have a look at the sound settings in the system tray?

If you press windwos+B, use the up arrow key to find the sound icon. It may say "speaker", or "headset".

If it says speakers, right click on it using the appropriate key stroke or shift+f10.

choose "open sound settings"

You will have a list of your sound devices.

Choose your headset and press enter.

Other idea, if your headset is a bluetooth device, do the same procedure to find the bluetooth icon in the system tray.

right click on it to display your bluetooth devices.

Try to disconnect your headset and connect it again.

More radically, uninstall your device and install it again.

That is all I can think of.

I hope you will find a way to solve your problem.

Re: help items missing

Quentin,

 

Here is the log record for the following series of steps:

  1. Pressed alt+control+n to launch NVDA
  2. Pressed insert+n to open the NVDA menu
  3. Pressed down-arrow three times to reach the Help menu
  4. Pressed right-arrow to arrive at the User Guide
  5. Pressed enter to open the guide
  6. The guide failed to open and
  7. no response from NVDA but I was dropped out of the NVDA menus back to the Outlook screen.
  8. Repeated steps 2 to 5 with an extra down-arrow for the commands quick reference with the same result as item 7 above
  9. Repeated steps 2 to 5 and two extra down-arrows to Whats New with the same result as in item 7 above.
  10. Repeated steps 2 to 5 and three extra down-arrows to NVDA Web Site
  11. Pressed the enter key and this time Firefox opened and I was placed on the correct web site.

 

When I look at the NVDA log of these steps below I see quite a significant run of errors. Unfortunately I cannot analyse it myself. Can you explain what the errors mean? Is there something I can do fix it?

 

I am puzzled to see that there is no record of the file path to either of the three Help files in the documentation/en/ folder.

Does the last line of the log reflect the successful opening of the NVDA Web Site?

Can you open those files from the documentation/en directory?  Windows does differentiate between local html files and online files (using the http protocol), so it could still be the file association for opening local html files (which would also explain why reinstalling NVDA doesn't fix it, since we don't try to set that association).

Brian,

Thanks for keeping with this issue.
I found that the files are indeed present under various language folders within the NVDA directory on the C: drive. They do exist in the "en" folder which is the  folder I would expect NVDA to call when the language setting is set to "English".

I found that I had not actually selected English in the General settings of NVDA. I corrected this so that NVDA now expects English as the default language but still the three files are not being picked up by the Help menu in NVDA.


All the best,

Well the only way I can make such files not display is to break the browsers linking, ie the browser gets launched but the file its asked to open is either corrupted in the command or missing so you get a blank browser window.
 I've tried several  portable and installed copies and cannot duplicate the effect here on windows 7 , so maybe something else broke. However if you can open some html files etc then it seems odd that the problem is so selective unless its a llanguage of the files or some other obscure issue where the characters are not correct to match the file names. Have you searched for the files manually on the machine?

Brian,

Logically, I would have agreed with you. But, I did remove NVDA completely
and then installed a fresh download of the whole NVDA package, installed it
and still the three files are missing!


Listed but failing to open (presumed Missing!):
* NVDA User Guide
* Commands quick Reference
* What's New

Present and functioning:
* NVDA Web Site
* Licence
* Contributors
* Welcome Dialog
* Check for Update
* About


Could someone tell me what the program file names for the three missing
items are? I could then check the NVDA folder and see if they are actually
present.

All the best,

Cearbhall

Have you tried a reinstall but keeping the settings? If its just files that
are missing and you know they were there in the first place, they have to be
in the installer, surely?

Hi,



I was going to investigate the query on using the User manual when I
discovered that the User Manual command reference and what’s new items are
missing from my NVDA menu!

All the other items are present in the help menu.

I am using NVDA 2018.3.2 in Windows 10.



Any suggestions as to how to recover?



All the best,



Cearbhall

Re: Audio Output

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

In my experience Windows 10 sound is a bit of a mess. All I can suggest is to alter the settings for nvda to the speakers, save the settings, then restart nvda and try to reselect the headphones. It could be for some odd reason that the new headphones are being held onto as the old ones by nvda. Now do not ask me why the other sounds switched cos I'm as confused as you are but it worked for somebody elses machine I was having the problem with. Its mega weird.

Dear Friends,



Today I replaced my headset (Logitech H820E) with a new one of the same kind. First it worked well. Then I restarted NVDA and the NVDA output switched to the laptop speakers. The system sounds still output through the headset, but NVDA does not. All the sound device settings that we could find are correct. The NVDA setting under preferences for sound output is set to the headphone as desired. Nevertheless the NVDA output comes through the laptop speakers and not the headset. I am using Windows 10.



Any suggestions?



Warmly,

Ralph

Actually though these do seem rather expensive, its not going to help them get cheaper if you deprive them of sales by encouraging people to pirate them. I'm not suggesting that you would, but your message can be read in that way, and so I thought I'd mention it as this list is run by people connected with NV Access they do have to be careful to make sure all users remain within the law.

Subject: [nvda] books about NVDA on the access technology institute website.


Hello. I would like to buy the two books about NVDA but they are kind of pricey maybe email them to me if you can on the blind.training or it is called access technology institute website. One is about the NVDA screen reader which goes for 95 dollars that mainly talks about the entire screen reader guess from what I have read it walks you through everything the only thing I don't know when it was written. Does any one have a copy that could email it to me for free? The other one is about windows 10 using nvda it sounds like it is a good book to get it talks about the entire system but what I don't get is when you first get a new computer that has windows 10 it does not have word installed and in the book it mentions and walks you through windows 10 and one of the lessons is managing and saving documents mentions word plus there are several lessons about microsoft word. It is good but I just want a book mainly about windows 10 minus the stuff about word. The book does cost around 150 dollars it sounds like a good resource was wondering has anyone bought the books from the website and how good are they? I would also like a copy of the book as well if anyone has that could they email that to me? The books are an immersion in to NVDA

The other one is an immersion in to windows 10 with NVDA. Thank you.

Re: Audio Output

Quentin Christensen
 

Is NVDA's sound output set to go to your NEW headphones?  You might have two sound devices - one for your old headphones and one for your new ones.  Press NVDA+CONTROL+S to open the synthesizer dialog, then press TAB to output device and ensure the correct device is set.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Audio Output

Sylvie Duchateau
 

Hello Ralph,

Did you have a look at the sound settings in the system tray?

If you press windwos+B, use the up arrow key to find the sound icon. It may say "speaker", or "headset".

If it says speakers, right click on it using the appropriate key stroke or shift+f10.

choose "open sound settings"

You will have a list of your sound devices.

Choose your headset and press enter.

Other idea, if your headset is a bluetooth device, do the same procedure to find the bluetooth icon in the system tray.

right click on it to display your bluetooth devices.

Try to disconnect your headset and connect it again.

More radically, uninstall your device and install it again.

That is all I can think of.

I hope you will find a way to solve your problem.

Best

Sylvie
