Re: latest alpha

 

Hi.
Maybe I'm a bit late on this topic but just wanted to say that at least fake clipboard announcement, which is an add-on that I use most of the time, is working though the warning. For the moment all we need to do is check the box about this add-on and then it's alright. Let's hope that it doesn't change.

I have loads including the very important application dictionary, toolbar explorer fake copy announcement  remote, open link with,  Extended  Winamp and dropbox to name but a few.
I do hope some third party can make these checked so they continue to work as they are very useful add ons for nvda. Of course in my view application dictionary and toolbar explorer should be part of core nvda in my thinking.

Just installed the latest alpha version of NVDA on my Win 10 1809 system.
It indicated that both speak passwords and Weather plus addons may be incompatible.  I have both enabled and seem to be working just fine with this latest NVDA Alpha.

Yeah, mine does not make any noise either, but I disabled it, and do every time I am on windows anything. I'm the only one who uses the computer and if I don't recognize something I stop it anyway.

Lucky you. My windows does not play any sound when the UAC dialog appears. I don't know if previous versions of windows made such a sound, but my 8.1 and my win10 make no sound when the dialog shows up, it just blanks the screen, which I can see, because the scren goes dark, then after I press the alt-y (once or twice depending), then the screen gets light again, so that's the way I manage it. If I wait long enough, I believe it does speak the contents, but that takes so long, that by the time it starts talking, I could have been back to what I was doing already, so there's no point to wait for the speech.

If you hear the sound, you shouldn't have to do anything, whether your

use NVDA on my Windows 7 machine as a portable program.  It can't read the

For what it's worth, I had to answer alt-y to the security dialog twice.
I don't know if it's because it didn't take the first time, or if it jut
needed two yes responses, but I suspect it's the first option, because
I've had that issue before.  I can't see much, but I can tell when the
security screen comes up, because it's dark, and the rest of my screens
are very light, so when it comes, I hit alt-y, and away it goes, but
perhaps I hit alt-y too early, so had to do it again, but that was the
only trouble I had installing NVDA 2018.4.  It was a bit slow at first,
until I closed VLC, after that, it rturned to normal response times.
Don't know if it's a result of it just being VLC, or if it was a result of
my having had that particular copy of VLC open for nearly a week on this
machine, and it was just being a resource hot at that point, but
regardless of the reason, it behaved normally after I closed it, so there
itis for what it's worth. I haven't tried reopening VLC just yet, as I'm
not ready to continue reading that particular book.

Hi Janet,

 

We'll need a bit more information to help you.  One of the most
common
reasons is that when you run the installer, it brings up a User
Account Control (UAC) dialog.  The dialog warns that the program
wants
to make changes to your PC and you must accept it to continue. 
That's
a standard Windows warning when you install any software, but
occasionally it appears behind other windows.  If the program is
installing (the progress bar is beeping) but you haven't answered
that
dialog yet, try using ALT+TAB to find it (if it doesn't appear on
top
of everything, it often appears at the back, as in the last window
in
the list when you ALT+TAB).  If you don't respond to it within
about
20 seconds, it will close and the install will fail.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Hi.



How are you trying to open it?



Are your file associations set to VlC?

What happens when you open it using the search box or run dialog?

If you've tried everything and there's simply no VLC window opening, it
may
be time to re-install. There's nothing special related to starting VlC; it
should open like any other programme.

Re: Success!

Gene
 

I'm extremely skeptical of that.  Nothing has been installed yet.  Speech occurs when installation has failed.  And as I understand it, NVDA is in memory and can work even if the files on the drive have been decoupled. 
 
I consider this extremely unlikely and I consider advising turning UAC off to be very bad advice.  UAC isn't nearly as effective as it might be because malware writers have found ways around it.  But it does help at times in preventing malware from being installed.  It is not reasonable to advise turning it off when all that is needed is to listen for the sound, then issue the command alt y.  Consider the amount of time in doing that compared with the amount of time removing an infection it might have prevented.

The problem is, Janet that you often have a catch 22 issue in this sort of
case. NVDA doing a full update has probably decoupled all the old files and
so there is no screenreader to read it, hence the noise. I know its not
advisable according to many here, but if you are careful what you install
and only you uses the machine, turn uac off completely. It will complain
about it at first but life is a lot simpler with it gone!

After trying again, I was able to install the update successfully. After the
update downloaded, there was another sound which I hadn’t heard before. I
hit Alt-Yon spec and I installed and restarted successfully. In the future,
it would be very helpful if this dialog would read properly.

Re: Problem installing update

I was just thinking this last night reading this thread. Do you have your UAC level set to 0? If so you won’t hear nothing. I am the only dude who uses my PC, but I still use UAC but my level is set at the default.

That is really unusual.  You should definitely get a UAC dialog when trying to install any program.  Actually, unless you are logging in to Windows as an administrator?  But in that case, the process would already have the privileges it needs and shouldn't fail.

Thanks for your feedback so far in helping me to solve this problem. I am running Windows 10. I do not get any sound indication of the screen asking me to allow the program to make changes to my system. I get the dialog telling me to wait while the setup is being prepared. Then I hear beeping for a few minutes. During that time I alt-tab numerous times to make sure I’m not missing the screen. Pretty much immediately after the beeping stops, I get what I’d describe as a “clang” sound and a message telling me tht the installation has failed and advising me to check the log bview.
 
Hopefully this provides some further clarification.

Re: Some add-ons fail to install/work under NVDA 2018.4

Hi!
It's true that NVDA can read a lot of emoji now without the Emoticons add-on running, but it doesn't always read the old-fashioned emoticons, made with punctuation marks and sometimes letters, with that add-on disabled: I just tested that on my Windows 7 computer. What's more, even though Windows 10 users can add emoji by accessing the appropriate panel there, the emoji panel doesn't exist in older versions of Windows, and users of Windows 7 or 8 might also want to use those old emoticons I've already mentioned. Given that Windows 10 isn't used by all NVDA users, and people may still want to read and add old-fashioned emoticons as well as more modern emoji, there are still good reasons for the Emoticons add-on for NVDA to continue to exist, in my opinion. So please don't scrap it yet!
Bye for now!

Several other things spring to mind. There has been a lot of talk that the emoticons are in the core now, so do you need the add on at all? also I'm totally confused about the state of the win 10 essentials as it seems there are now strict limits to which versions of windows 10 work with which versions of the add on.
Might it be that windows 10s version is incompatible with the add ons being used in some way?

I also had the problem that the new version of the Emoticons add-on failed
to install: in my case there was an error with the installation of that
add-on’s update when I used the add-on updater to do it. But the Emoticons
add-on installed normally when I downloaded it from the website and did the
installation by opening the add-on from where it got downloaded to.

By the way, I couldn’t download NVDA 2018.4 using Check For Updates the
other day either, once again I actually had to download the ;exe file to
update NVDA, so I wonder if there is some gproblem with NVDA updates
generally, either the program itself or add-ons.

Thanks in advance for any explanation if there is one.

Re: Some add-ons fail to install/work under NVDA 2018.4

Clare Page <clare.page@...>
 

Hi!
It's true that NVDA can read a lot of emoji now without the Emoticons add-on running, but it doesn't always read the old-fashioned emoticons, made with punctuation marks and sometimes letters, with that add-on disabled: I just tested that on my Windows 7 computer. What's more, even though Windows 10 users can add emoji by accessing the appropriate panel there, the emoji panel doesn't exist in older versions of Windows, and users of Windows 7 or 8 might also want to use those old emoticons I've already mentioned. Given that Windows 10 isn't used by all NVDA users, and people may still want to read and add old-fashioned emoticons as well as more modern emoji, there are still good reasons for the Emoticons add-on for NVDA to continue to exist, in my opinion. So please don't scrap it yet!
Bye for now!
From Clare

Several other things spring to mind. There has been a lot of talk that the
emoticons are in the core now, so do you need the add on at all? also I'm
totally confused about the state of the win 10 essentials as it seems there
are now strict limits to which versions of windows 10 work with which
versions of the add on.
Might it be that windows 10s version is incompatible with the add ons being
used in some way?

Hi!

I also had the problem that the new version of the Emoticons add-on failed
to install: in my case there was an error with the installation of that
add-on’s update when I used the add-on updater to do it. But the Emoticons
add-on installed normally when I downloaded it from the website and did the
installation by opening the add-on from where it got downloaded to.

By the way, I couldn’t download NVDA 2018.4 using Check For Updates the
other day either, once again I actually had to download the ;exe file to
update NVDA, so I wonder if there is some gproblem with NVDA updates
generally, either the program itself or add-ons.

Thanks in advance for any explanation if there is one.

Bye for now!

From Clare

Subject: [nvda] Some add-ons fail to install/work under NVDA 2018.4



Hello all,

A friend of mine has reported to me a problem with his copy of NVDA 2018.4.
Some add-ons fail to install/work under this version of NVDA. It is an
installed copy of NVDA. He sent me the log file. I can see some errors about
the "Emoticons" (v9.0 if I'm not mistaking) and "Windows 10 App Essentials"
add-ons, but I don't understand what the errors mean. I'm pasting his log
file here, in case someone can help us to solve this issue.

Thanks much in advance!

Here's the log:

Re: Some add-ons fail to install/work under NVDA 2018.4

 

Hi,
Emoticons versus emojis: they are two different things. The Emoticons add-on comes with definitions of some popular emoticons and emojis, but they are tiny compared to what NVDA can read now in 2018.4.
Windows 10 App Essentials policy: supporting more recent Windows 10 release is by design due to introduction of Windows as a Service (keeping oneself updated from time to time). I also do require more recent Windows 10 releases for more recent add-on releases in order to reduce complexity.
The log provided has nothing to do with which release WinTenApps add-on will run on; rather, it deals with failed file deletion and rename operations.
Cheers,
Joseph

Several other things spring to mind. There has been a lot of talk that the emoticons are in the core now, so do you need the add on at all? also I'm totally confused about the state of the win 10 essentials as it seems there are now strict limits to which versions of windows 10 work with which versions of the add on.
Might it be that windows 10s version is incompatible with the add ons being used in some way?

Hi!

I also had the problem that the new version of the Emoticons add-on failed
to install: in my case there was an error with the installation of that
add-on’s update when I used the add-on updater to do it. But the Emoticons
add-on installed normally when I downloaded it from the website and did the
installation by opening the add-on from where it got downloaded to.

By the way, I couldn’t download NVDA 2018.4 using Check For Updates the
other day either, once again I actually had to download the ;exe file to
update NVDA, so I wonder if there is some gproblem with NVDA updates
generally, either the program itself or add-ons.

Thanks in advance for any explanation if there is one.

Bye for now!

From Clare

Hello all,

A friend of mine has reported to me a problem with his copy of NVDA 2018.4.
Some add-ons fail to install/work under this version of NVDA. It is an
installed copy of NVDA. He sent me the log file. I can see some errors about
the "Emoticons" (v9.0 if I'm not mistaking) and "Windows 10 App Essentials"
add-ons, but I don't understand what the errors mean. I'm pasting his log
file here, in case someone can help us to solve this issue.

Thanks much in advance!

Subject: [nvda] Problems with english £ sign in Espeak NG in laatest release


Hi, While proof reading some documents in Word today using the latest nvda and its inbuilt Espeak NG I encountered an issue. although it can speak the £ sign when cursoring through a line, it will not say it when reading lines or in say all. However installing Speach player in Espeak fixes the problem. Can somebody sort this out?
I could send a message to Espeak group, or raise an issue on nvda, but I suspect this is an Espeak issue and as such might be better if somebody who is an NVDA developer approached the Espeak team, as it is probably just a small issue.


Here is a test bit of text to try it on.

RNIB Connect London are organising a meet up for this event at Angel Tube Station on the Northern Line. Please e-mail Networklondon@rnib.org.uk or call 020 7391 2152 to express your interest and book a place on the touch tour (free) or for the theatre performance (from £16.50).

Saturday 12th January at 2:30pm (Free Touch Tour at 11.30am)

Re: Some add-ons fail to install/work under NVDA 2018.4

Several other things spring to mind. There has been a lot of talk that the emoticons are in the core now, so do you need the add on at all? also I'm totally confused about the state of the win 10 essentials as it seems there are now strict limits to which versions of windows 10 work with which versions of the add on.
Might it be that windows 10s version is incompatible with the add ons being used in some way?

Hi!

I also had the problem that the new version of the Emoticons add-on failed to install: in my case there was an error with the installation of that add-on’s update when I used the add-on updater to do it. But the Emoticons add-on installed normally when I downloaded it from the website and did the installation by opening the add-on from where it got downloaded to.

By the way, I couldn’t download NVDA 2018.4 using Check For Updates the other day either, once again I actually had to download the ;exe file to update NVDA, so I wonder if there is some gproblem with NVDA updates generally, either the program itself or add-ons.

Thanks in advance for any explanation if there is one.

Bye for now!

Hello all,

A friend of mine has reported to me a problem with his copy of NVDA 2018.4. Some add-ons fail to install/work under this version of NVDA. It is an installed copy of NVDA. He sent me the log file. I can see some errors about the "Emoticons" (v9.0 if I'm not mistaking) and "Windows 10 App Essentials" add-ons, but I don't understand what the errors mean. I'm pasting his log file here, in case someone can help us to solve this issue.

Thanks much in advance!

I have loads including the very important application dictionary, toolbar explorer fake copy announcement remote, open link with, Extended Winamp and dropbox to name but a few.
I do hope some third party can make these checked so they continue to work as they are very useful add ons for nvda. Of course in my view application dictionary and toolbar explorer should be part of core nvda in my thinking.

Just installed the latest alpha version of NVDA on my Win 10 1809 system.
It indicated that both speak passwords and Weather plus addons may be incompatible. I have both enabled and seem to be working just fine with this latest NVDA Alpha.



Re: Some add-ons fail to install/work under NVDA 2018.4

 

Hi,

In case of Emoticons add-on, it might be that something is holding onto manifest file somehow, thus preventing package deletion.

As for config file error: might be caused by nvda.ini becoming corrupt.

In both cases, I advise:

  1. Log off the computer (not restart).
  2. Log back in.
  3. Download and install the add-ons in question manually.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

That may be what is supposed to occur, but time after time it goes mute and does not use the built in secure screen reader. Its not just that its opened behind either, even alt tabbing will not reveal it. I guess putting narrator on before an install may work, I've never tried it. Its my feeling that in some circumstances the cut down bit of nvda which is supposed to run in this situation cannot read the screen unless its actually in focus and for some reason alt tabbing never actually achieves this, at least from my experience.

Ah fantastic - ignore the email I just sent then :)

Re the dialog not reading properly - it should read ok, however it uses a
different NVDA profile. To have it read in the voice you prefer:
1) Setup NVDA as you like (synthesizer, rate, etc)
2) Press NVDA+CONTROL+C to save changes.
3) Press NVDA+CONTROL+G to open the general settings.
4) Press TAB until the focus is on the "Use currently saved settings on the
logon and other secure screens" button
5) Press SPACEBAR or ENTER to activate the button.
6) If you have any add-ons, a dialog appears warning that these can be a
security risk (not that there is a risk from any specific add-ons, just a
general warning). Press ENTER to accept this.
7) A UAC dialog appears. press ALT+Y accept the prompt.

Re: Success!

The problem is, Janet that you often have a catch 22 issue in this sort of case. NVDA doing a full update has probably decoupled all the old files and so there is no screenreader to read it, hence the noise. I know its not advisable according to many here, but if you are careful what you install and only you uses the machine, turn uac off completely. It will complain about it at first but life is a lot simpler with it gone!

Re: Problem installing update

I do not think this is the problem here, it sounds to me more like a weird impossible to write to a folder issue. Maybe an existing file is locked permanently due to a bad shutdown. There are some unlock programs around that can sort this sort of issue out.

I have had this scenario on a system that failed due to a powercut during antimalware scan and updates.

You need to remove and reinstall the sound drivers though they may be corrupted.

Next make a new account, copy in all your data, and delete the old profile because its corrupted.

A small note, if windows frequently does this it could be corrupted.

If that is the case, reformat and it will go away.

But if it continues to do this every so often, and even if it doesn't I would strongly recomend people to get a ups, now I realise ups devices and their power cells are expensive and that some of their software may not be the best, access wize but that should at least save your bacon, this home network has 2 ups devices

One of them is quite old and we have a newer one on the workstation.

In addition, due to a server upgrade at my dad's work we have recieved an old one which we have serviced but not put anywhere, so that may replace the oldest box.

Make sure you have serge boxes, for all electronics.

Note, these are not the common cheap as chips chinese 6 dollare crapware, you need or should have a special one designed for eletronics, they are heavier and do cost 30 bucks or so but in my view are well worth the price.

Thanks for your feedback so far in helping me to solve this problem. I am
running Windows 10. I do not get any sound indication of the screen asking
me to allow the program to make changes to my system. I get the dialog
telling me to wait while the setup is being prepared. Then I hear beeping
for a few minutes. During that time I alt-tab numerous times to make sure
I’m not missing the screen. Pretty much immediately after the beeping

Re: can't get vlc media player to start

Now I had a similar issue with virtual recorder after a windows update. I had to uninstall it and reinstall it again and it then functioned. It would not be the first time a windows update has altered a file modified by another program and made it non functional.

Hi.



How are you trying to open it?



Are your file associations set to VlC?

What happens when you open it using the search box or run dialog?

If you've tried everything and there's simply no VLC window opening, it may
be time to re-install. There's nothing special related to starting VlC; it
should open like any other programme.

Problems with english £ sign in Espeak NG in laatest release

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

Hi, While proof reading some documents in Word today using the latest nvda and its inbuilt Espeak NG I encountered an issue. although it can speak the £ sign when cursoring through a line, it will not say it when reading lines or in say all. However installing Speach player in Espeak fixes the problem. Can somebody sort this out?
I could send a message to Espeak group, or raise an issue on nvda, but I suspect this is an Espeak issue and as such might be better if somebody who is an NVDA developer approached the Espeak team, as it is probably just a small issue.


Here is a test bit of text to try it on.

RNIB Connect London are organising a meet up for this event at Angel Tube Station on the Northern Line. Please e-mail Networklondon@rnib.org.uk or call 020 7391 2152 to express your interest and book a place on the touch tour (free) or for the theatre performance (from £16.50).

Re: Reading emoticons and Kazakh language for eSpeak NG

ChrisLeo
 

Hello,
I think that isn't a problem.
In voice setting dialog by default the level of symbols is "Some", and the level for each emoji in the dialog Punctuation/symbol pronunciation is "Some".
You can customize these levels as you prefer, but by default NVDA reads emojis as expected.


Chris.

In reply to Adil Uralbaev, 19/12/2018 13:16:

Hello. I managed to solve the problem. In the NVDA menu, a submenu of
Preferences, there is the item "Punctuation/symbol pronunciation...".
This dialog box has all the smilies. You need to select the desired
emoticon and the "Nothing" level and save the changes. In this case,
the emoticon will be read correctly. This should be done for each
emoticon, which, unfortunately, is not very convenient. And you need
to make changes for each language. I hope these problems will be fixed
in the next updates.
Thanks for attention.

2018-12-19 14:09 GMT+03:00, ChrisLeo <llajta@gmx.us>:
Hi,
probabily you are using "None" as level for Punctuation/symbol
pronunciation.
Raise the level to "Some" or more with nvda+P then try to read emoji.


Make sure that the checkbox "Include Unicode Consortium data" in the
voice setting dialog is enabled.

obviously, the emoji dictionaries from espeak.ng aren't available on
NVDA 2018.4.

Cheers,

Chris.
