Re: NVDA and braille displays

Christopher Kchao
 

Hi,
Have you tried looking into whether or not there is a driver specifically for the Vario Connect? As I understand it, the Humanware BrailleConnect and the Baum Vario Connect are identical units.
Best,
CK

Hi list members,

I have been using a BrailleConnect from Humanware using the Baum USB
supervario deriver and NVDA for several years quite successfully.  With
the new release of NVDA, the braille display for some reason has stopped
working.

Previously, NVDA had the BrailleConnect as one of its braille displays. 
In the latest release of NVDA, there is an automatic detection option
under the Braille setting but it fails to detect my display.  I also
have brltty as an option which, in the past, also drove the display but
no longer.  When I choose the brltty option, I receive the error message
that brltty cannot be installed.  Interestingly, even though the
supervario USB driver from Baum has been installed, there is no mention
of it under the Windows driver folder.  Despite the fact that the
BrailleConnect appears under ports in the device manager in the control
panel, I receive the message that no briver has been installed.  The
braille display is set for USB not bluetooth and it is functioning as
normal and I am using Windows 10 Pro.  I would appreciate receiving
comments from list members as to what might be the problem.



Many thanks

Hi Chantelle


Thanks so much, that works.  Now you say in your example, go back to
where the dog is barking and delete.  How do you go back to the barking
part?  Do I have to play the video from the start or can I jump from
split to split?


Best wishes

Okay, here's what you do. If it's a long video, you'll have to listen
to the video and split it every 30/40 counts by pressing the spacebar
to stop the video and then pressing the applications key. There you'll
find the split option, entre on that. Do this throughout your video.
Then you can go back to the video where the part is that you want to
get rid of and split it again.

So, lets say you have a video of a dog running and the dog barks
without warning. You don't want that right?

So, after the barking the dog is still running. You just want the
video without the barking.

Play the video again and cause you might know after how many seconds
the dog will bark, you can stop the video just before the dog barks.
Split it, let the dog bark and split again. Then you can go back to
the bark part and press delete.

There you go, your dog is just running and there's no barking.

To be safe, you can add a cross fade or fade out and in from either
black or white to let people think that the dog was running for a long
time or that it is a new video.

Hope it helps.

Hi Chantelle


Great advice, thanks.  My next challenge is to take out a few seconds of
video clip from the middle of a longer video.  It seems that people who
can see set some kind of marker at the start and end of the section they
want to cut out.  I have tried using trim, but this cuts the video
before and after the bit I want to cut and when I press cut command from
the edit menu I am left with only the bit I do not want and the video
parts I do want is deleted.

I missed this feature in BrailleExtender because it's under Input Gestures, which I thought was for touch screens.

Braille Extender add on does this, but for some odd reason it has no key
defined for it by default. Surely such an option needs to be in the core
since there are a lot of users now, and getting more due to the cheaper
displays, though of course I think most of the cheap ones at the moment are
only 6 dot.

My request is that NVDA have a way to turn off dots 7 and 8.

In standard brf files, such as those from the BARD website of the U.S.
National Library service, all letters and some
additional symbolls are in upper case. I have BraileExtender and can
switch between English U.S. Grade 2 and English
U.S. 6 dot computer Braille. But the latter is not 6 dot. Dot seven
sticks up almost continually, making
reading unpleasant. We need a way to tell NVDA that all letters and
symbolls are 6 dot.

Thamnks,

# Partial Lines

This addon has several operations dealing with lines:
* NVDA+shift+delete changes the up/down arrows to read from the start of the line to the cursor, from the cursor to the end of the line, or the entire line.
* NVDA+shift+page up reads from the start of the line to the cursor
* NVDA+shift+page down reads from the cursor to the end of the line.

Yes.  It sounds as though you want the ability to read by sentence and perhaps an add-on designer may provide it.

It could be more useful if we could reread the whole sentence before where the cursor is and after it, too. Of course, I can remove the cursor to reread whatever I need but it then takes time to go back to the word to be corrected. Is that clear?

You are correct.  Interpreted languages do indeed run slower than purely compiled languages.  However, python (like java) uses a virtual machine to run their code.  This gives them (almost) the speed of compiled languages,  while offering the developer a time savings/convenience of not needing to compile the code.  The python interpreter does that for you the first time you run a piece of python code.  It's also possible to save this compiled version so that the next time you run the code, it can skip the compile step, and just run the virtualized byte code, which saves time as well.

It's an attempt to have the best of both worlds, the compiled speed, and the interpreter ease of use, and interestingly enough, although I'm not a big fan of python, I do have to admit, that for the most part, it succeeds admirably at this task.

No, python is an interpreted language, no compiler required.  If you have the python program, that's all you need. 

The IDE merely provides an integrated method of writing, running and editing your code, there's o real benefit to using an IDE over using a command-line stand-alone version of python other than convenience.

You don't need to download anaconda, that's just the build environment they suggest.  I didn't use it, I just used the python 2.73 program, as that's the one I had at the time.  I would guess python 3.0 would probably work too, but I've not tried it with their course.  You don't need a special ide for using python, just a plain old text editor like notepad will work just fine.

As far as I know, (and I did take a couple of their courses), the EDX courses are completely accessible.  The courses I've taken didn't have any images showing data you needed to answer a question, so that's a good thing.  The discussions can get a bit heated, but that's normal, no matter what class you're in.  But, specifically the intro to python course is accessible, I know for sure, because I took that one, along with some others, like cell phone technology, and css creation.  (I still don't have a handle on css, but ...)

the line to the cursor, from the cursor to the end of the line, or the

* NVDA+shift+page up reads from the start of the line to the cursor

Re: video editting

 

The only up to date accessible video editor that is out now is Virtual Dub. That link should take you to version 2, but the file output is huge so use handbreak to trim the file size down even more.

Re: Windows Movie Maker

Chantelle Buys
 

Okay, here's what you do. If it's a long video, you'll have to listen
to the video and split it every 30/40 counts by pressing the spacebar
to stop the video and then pressing the applications key. There you'll
find the split option, entre on that. Do this throughout your video.
Then you can go back to the video where the part is that you want to
get rid of and split it again.

So, lets say you have a video of a dog running and the dog barks
without warning. You don't want that right?

So, after the barking the dog is still running. You just want the
video without the barking.

Play the video again and cause you might know after how many seconds
the dog will bark, you can stop the video just before the dog barks.
Split it, let the dog bark and split again. Then you can go back to
the bark part and press delete.

There you go, your dog is just running and there's no barking.

To be safe, you can add a cross fade or fade out and in from either
black or white to let people think that the dog was running for a long
time or that it is a new video.

Hope it helps.

Re: Reading parts of the cursor's line

Gene
 

I knew about the feature in JAWS but I never understood what it would be used for.  Where would it be used?
 
Also, NVDA needs a way, I only saw this ability in the old ASAP DOS screen-reader, to define a column so you can move with the up and down arrow keys or use read to end and only have a certain column of the screen read.  Let's say you have a document with three columns and you want to arrow through one column from top to bottom.  This can't be done now.  It would be useful in some documents and it would be useful on some web sites where tables are laid out visually to look like tables but have no formatting to tell a screen-reader that a table exists.

Re: OK died in the wool JAWS user using NVDA

It is only one more command.  I use it regularly and it takes almost no time and effort because it becomes automatic.  it takes more time and is certainly more annoying to hear the subject read again and I believe some e-mail programs may read other extraneous information.

You can cause JAWS to read the message body and not read all that extraneous information by getting in the habit of issuing read to end after opening a message.  You may have to experiment to see if you have to wait at all before issuing the command.  If you get in the habit of doing this, it becomes automatic and you can do this very quickly.

Hi,

That's really nothing to do with the differences between JAWS and NVDA,
performing with the same programs.

NVDA is a lot more responsive using Outlook, but it is not very good at
reading the unread messages in the folder tree.

It also insists on reading the subject line again when you open a message,
though I believe you can kill this by making a profile and turning off
object descriptions.

JAWS is more intuitive, just turn off reading message headers in outlook
verbosity.

This is why I say that JAWS is much more intuitive, you have to dive into
some techie detail to figure out some of NVDA's settings.  There is also no
search for settings in NVDA, I'd like to see this kind of thing, JAWS does
it so well.

All the best

Jaws seems unable any more to read some of the flags on Outlook Express and
live mail.OK discontinued software but many  still use them like myself with
the former. Its only Microsoft who seem to not want to develop whatwas a
very capable  email and newsgroup  program and chose to use the awfully
limited  windows 10 mail instead or force everyone down the full outlook
route.

Re: Reading parts of the cursor's line

Tyler Spivey
 

NVDA can't do what you want natively, but my addon can.
Here's the link again, this time with the readme. I haven't got it put on the addons site yet because I didn't think it was all that useful, but maybe it is. Let me know how it breaks and I'll try to fix it.

# Partial Lines

This addon has several operations dealing with lines:
* NVDA+shift+delete changes the up/down arrows to read from the start of the line to the cursor, from the cursor to the end of the line, or the entire line.
* NVDA+shift+page up reads from the start of the line to the cursor
* NVDA+shift+page down reads from the cursor to the end of the line.

Hi.
Try pressing NVDA plus L. NVDA will read the current line. Press NVDA plus down arrow. NVDA will read the next line.
Hope this helps.

Hi, everyone,
This is one first question: is there any way to read the current line before the cursor and after the cursor as well?
I'm discovering NVDA with enjoyment!
Thanks a lot,
