Re: Need help learning Braille

Akshaya Choudhary
 

Thank you guys for your encouragement! I would definitely initiate learning Braille as soon as possible. As many of you have suggested, even if I don't become proficient enough to read books, I would definitely be able to read notes and make presentations more efficiently. Also, I would like to clarify, many of you talked about contracted Braille. Is that similar to learning short hand for the sighted people?

Once again, thank you all for your feedback and support.

Those commands are from an addon, they are not native from NVDA.

Did the friend know about commands like, as I recall, NVDA shift page up
and NVDA shift page down? I read the included information in one of the
e-mail messages and I believe those are the commands for read to cursor
from the left and read from cursor to the right. If your friend tried
the command that cycles through different options, that would be more
cumbersome than the JAWS method.

Hi Tyler,

As I'm discovering NVDA and its famous add-ons, a friend tried yours for
me. According to what he explained to me, your add-on dos the job but
using it seems longer than reading the whole line, and coming back to
the cursor whenever it has been left.

I hoped I could have a way as simple as Jaws does: insert+7 reading the
beginning of the line until the cursor and insert+9 reading the end of
the line from the cursor. It could be nice if we had the same
possibility with the whole sentence, which I don't think Jaws offers.

Regards,

Robert

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.

Re: Is NVDA Really Dying?

NVDA will always be my favorite screen reader. It is very responsive and does everything I need it to do. It's the best ❤

Subject: Re: [nvda] Is NVDA Really Dying?

You know, I still have that issue with narator.

In my opinion, nvda is what narator should be.

I like narator's scan mode but thats it, if nvda could copy the scan mode of narator that would be fine.

Narator is not a screen reader.

It will never be a screen reader in my view.

At most it has been upgraded from an useless crappy gimicy pit of junkware, to a handy and usefull tool with features like the supernova nav mode or jaws virtual curser.

These modes can read to a limited extent buttons, images, and a few things.

Granted, if you use microsoft programs narator is probably going to be fine with that.

Its microsoft so you'd expect it.

If all you want to do is use microsoft apps and microsoft software and nothing else, then I guess narator could be classed as a propper screen reader for microsoft software.

Its a little hit and miss with everything else though.

When it hits and it does mostly then it can be a real help but the chance of a hit and miss are 50 50.

Narator is now a nice tool but thats it.

To even get close to what nvda is.

1. be scriptable and or have addons to increase its functionality.

2. be able to have nvda's navigation features and usual features of a screenreader.

Be able to be used by third parties.

In order for the last one, narator source code needs to be released to just about everyone and microsoft won't do that because they won't.

Its like windows and a few other things,some stuff ms just will not release.

Interestingly I do know that its basically released for free the ms office file engine and most of its kernal, also a lot of windows itself and various components are opensourced or freely available.

They don't make it easy though,you need to know how to use what they released to you.

I'd really like to know for those that have reviewed narator with a really good rating how much money ms are giving them.

Coolblindtech rave about how good narator is.

Nvda connects with the os closer than any other reader I have.

If narator was truely like that, nvda and just about everything else would be dead and gone.

But narator isn't even interacting with the os to the fullest extent that it could.

Narator is good to get things going and good to get you out of a tight spot but thats it.

For those that say its good, then you are just using it in situations where it can understand things.

Now don't get me wrong, narator is no longer crap, its actually a usefull support tool.

But depending on it alone well its not really enough.

Now if all you use are universal apps and microsoft only software then you don't need anything else.

Since most people in this world at least I hope most do use other software then its fine.

Actually the only reason mainly that apple voice over itself is so good is that you are locked in to use apple only software with it, there are limitations when using thirdparty software not as bad as narator but there are limits.

It does concern me, like others are saying, that while they seem to be improving microsoft don't seem to be trying hard enough.

They could distroy vispero, and dolphin and others if they really wanted to.

Actually dolphin would probably just quit they seem to be going quite slowly and are still behind on internet brouser access and this is from a current ish user of their software and not a bash.

If narator blitsed the industry, its not like they would care if they just went.

Vispero would put up a challenge I am sure but exactly why that would be would be unknown.

Its a lot of companies put together, its only defence is probably because microsoft didn't previde before they did and they are one of the oldest screenreader companies but thats about it.

Lets face it, nvda's opensource nature means it can leap faster than well anyone including microsoft.

And while it has its limits to, I do know if microsoft really wanted it they could smash everyone like the hulk, but they don't.

There are barely 2 companies that stand in its way, one of them has become bloated and the other one just hangs in there.

The only reason they don't is probably because of the reputation of narator mainly maybe and also that a lot of governments and others still use jaws and will do so for some time.

Even if everyone went, somehow nvda would probably stay about, its not like nvda and its stuff will ever become an issue for microsoft to deal with, its not like it will ever be a competition type deal for us and microsoft, it does make me wander why they don't just move.

Then again it could be simply because they either don't want to or just don't need to.

With the net in general going tablet to a bigger degree maybe they want to push that boundary.

I do think though that ms lost a great opertunity with windoweyes.

There was a joke that ms would buy gwmicro etc but it never happened.

They got it with office using windoweyes, but no further.

If they brought windoweyes and improved it, then all they would need to do is keep it running with the latest bits and bobs, they wouldn't need narator, and if they did it right they could put it on their microsoft phones and game consoles and suddenly issue solved but they didn't.

The only way this could improve would be if microsoft decided to use nvda freely as their reader of choice, maybe asking us first, and they could freely do whatever with the code in any case to a point.

Then released narator as opensourced or gave the nvaccess group the source of narator and we combine those.

Now that wouldn't be as good as actually grabbing windoweyes when they had the chance but at least there would be room for a functional reader then.

Nvda still has some shortcomings but to be honest thats still fine.

With the fact that we now need bits of nvda loaded anyway and installed to access some secure screens I want to revisit the interceptor display drivers a lot of readers have.

Granted these would be only used if nvda was installed and not generally, heck maybe not all the time only when needed but even if it was all the time or when it was needed, the main reason I was against it is that you didn't have to install nvda, now with win10 you need to install nvda for full functionality so why not nvda needs to be installed anyway and I don't have an issue with that now.

Of course interceptors have their issues, taking from and shifting the display devices about, potentially being unstable but still, now everything runs with uia even intercepts while a lot of stuff with the comercial ones has their own drivers it does interface with things.

I know we have objectnav but I'd like a dolphin or jaws vertual curser and maybe some sort of scan mode to be toggled on and off.

I think that functionality should eventually be something we can probably do without rocking the boat, will have to rename those to something else but we could do it.

To my knowledge, nvda is one of the only programs which includes access to a synth like espeak directly as a low quality fast responce synth.

Its why I put up with espeak, as while it can be robotic and crappy its really fast and works in most situations.

Hey, I like the video. Who's helping you with it?

Well, sadly my guide dog died last year, the videos on the channel is
all I have left of my guide dog.

She was 7 and a half years old when I had to put her down. I can send
you her story of how she died. She's a golden retriever. One who loved
everyone and who use to talk with a toy in her mouth or hide away your
keys if she got a hold of them.

She use to hug me around my legs when I wanted to leave her at home
and tried to hold on to me for dear life when she had to go for a
wash.

You should really try to get skype, then I could help you with your
videos by listening to where you are at on your movie maker.

Just go to your timeline again and press your arrow keys way to the
right until you hear (Background) and press down. Then you can press
ault and move to the right until you get to text to change whatever
you like to change. You can also hit enter after moving to
(Background) and down to hear your text. So after moving to your text,
hit enter and then you can edit your text.

Hi.

Yes, when you split the video into lets say, ten split videos, you
should have ten clips on the timeline. Just use the arrow kays to go
to each clip or if you know that it was the video after the second
split, you can go to the second video and press space to hear if it's
the one you are looking for and if it is, just press delete.

I always make double sure that it is the clip I want to delete and
then I'll hit delete.

You can also use undo like you would have done in word and the clip
will come back again or if you don't like the effect you have just put

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 Tyler,

As I'm discovering NVDA and its famous add-ons, a friend tried yours
for me. According to what he explained to me, your add-on dos the job
but using it seems longer than reading the whole line, and coming back
to the cursor whenever it has been left.

I hoped I could have a way as simple as Jaws does: insert+7 reading
the beginning of the line until the cursor and insert+9 reading the
end of the line from the cursor. It could be nice if we had the same
possibility with the whole sentence, which I don't think Jaws offers.

Regards,

Robert

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.

Re: OK died in the wool JAWS user using NVDA

I totally agree, what I started out with were merely observations as to why NVDA isn’t for me the magic bullet.  JAWS isn’t either, but it’s closest to it, since Window-Eyes no longer works.

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
I have Outlook 2007 and after pressing enter on a message in the folder
list, NVDA reads the text in the subject box not the whole line, then it
announces the message format, then the control type i.e "Dialog, Message

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.

Not if you are in a structure that sighted people see as a table but that isn't a table according to HTML implementation. 

 

And what about on a document that has two columns of text and you want to read one column, then move the cursor to the end of the first column and read the second one?

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

Steve Nutt
 

Jean,

 

If you are using a screen reader to do your job, the last thing you want is to have extra keystrokes just for reading Email.

 

There is this thing called efficiency, and JAWS has it more than NVDA at the moment for me.

 

When NVDA starts really addressing efficiency in terms of Outlook and stuff like that, then it’s worth looking at again.

 

For example, in NVDA, you can’t supress what columns are read in an Email, such as replied, attached, unread, etc, in JAWS you can.  This means you can remove some you don’t want and make the listening experience much nicer.  For example, I remove the Importance flag, because I don’t often get messages that say Importance High, but you can’t get rid of that with NVDA.

 

This is just another area where JAWS is much more efficient than NVDA.  If you are just writing the odd Email at home and don’t use it for work, this is OK, but when the rubber hits the road, JAWS has several efficiencies built in, regarding verbosity and such, that NVDA doesn’t accomplish for me.

 

All the best


Steve

I'd use the one that is free and performs very well.  There is such a thing as being fanatically demanding, expecting a screen-reader to do everything perfectly.  I've seen others engage in this sort of fanaticism.  Because screen-readers are what they are, and because Windows and Windows programs are what they are, there are times when you get better performance and eliminate annoyances by maing very minor adaptations to help your screen-reader do its job efficiently.  I am not saying you are fanatical, I don't know your general approach.  But I've seen people go through needless inconvenience and unsuccessful attempts to solve very minor behaviors like this instead of adapting a solution that may take a quarter second per message. 

 

And here is an example of a problem both the other screen-reader, I assume you are referring to JAWS, and NVDA both have.  If you do a search on a web page, you hear a lot of extraneous text.  Read current line as soon as the screen-reader starts to speak eliminates this extra verbiage and may save half a second or a second or more, when hearing the results of a search.

 

With the e-mail program I use, Windows Live Mail, and as I recall, with Outlook Express in the old days, NVDA would read extraneous information when I returned to the message list after reading a message.  It says things like inbox, Windows Live mail Outlook Express message list.  I can eliminate all this by simply using read current line.  How much time does one command take?  a quarter of a second?  It's automatic if you do it for not too long a time.

Yes, but if I don’t need to perform that extra keystroke with every single Email I open with another screen reader, which am I going to use?

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
I have Outlook 2007 and after pressing enter on a message in the folder
list, NVDA reads the text in the subject box not the whole line, then it
announces the message format, then the control type i.e "Dialog, Message
document, multi-line", then it reads the first line of the message body.

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

Hi Tyler,
As I'm discovering NVDA and its famous add-ons, a friend tried yours for me. According to what he explained to me, your add-on dos the job but using it seems longer than reading the whole line, and coming back to the cursor whenever it has been left.
I hoped I could have a way as simple as Jaws does: insert+7 reading the beginning of the line until the cursor and insert+9 reading the end of the line from the cursor. It could be nice if we had the same possibility with the whole sentence, which I don't think Jaws offers.

Re: Windows Movie Maker

Hey, I like the video. Who's helping you with it?

Well, sadly my guide dog died last year, the videos on the channel is
all I have left of my guide dog.

She was 7 and a half years old when I had to put her down. I can send
you her story of how she died. She's a golden retriever. One who loved
everyone and who use to talk with a toy in her mouth or hide away your
keys if she got a hold of them.

She use to hug me around my legs when I wanted to leave her at home
and tried to hold on to me for dear life when she had to go for a
wash.

You should really try to get skype, then I could help you with your
videos by listening to where you are at on your movie maker.

to each clip or if you know that it was the video after the second
split, you can go to the second video and press space to hear if it's
the one you are looking for and if it is, just press delete.

I always make double sure that it is the clip I want to delete and

You can also use undo like you would have done in word and the clip

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.

I tried this in ms Word and it works without moving the Word cursor. You can move any number of lines within the current screen, in addition, Numpad keys 4, 5 and 6 will read previous, current and next word on a line and numpad keys 1, 2 and 3 will do the same by character.

Re: Problems With NVDA

Wow I disagree, especially if you are multi-tasking, or more accurately, task switching.  2GB isn’t enough with a screen reader.

umm, you're confusing ram and storage.  An SD card won't give you more
ram, that will only provide more external storage.  swapping SD cards
allows you to copy more files to those cards, but does nothing for your
RAM, which is where programs run.  2GB is poretty low for any version of
windows, except if you're using a tablet, there's not much you can do
about it. If you're on a pc, it's (usually) easy to upgrade the ram in
the computer, providing you have empty slots or the ram you have isn't
maxed out.  Most machines can only take a limited amount of ram, and you
need to know what that limit is before trying to upgrade the machine.
However, though I don't know for sure, it sounds to me like you're
talking about a tablet, in which case, the ram isn't upgradable.

Re: NVDA, JAWS, compared to Narrator

What version of JAWS do you have and what Windows 10 apps doesn’t it work with?

 

I find JAWS works with Windows 10 apps better than NVDA.

Hi!

This is a great question, and I can give you some good information!

I use Narrator more than I do JAWS, and 60 percent as much as NVDA.

Of course, this is using Windows 10 1809 build, and Narrator is even a little better in the insider builds relating to the next build, 1903.

Here is just a little of what I use Narrator for.

One:

I do everything on the Internet with Narrator using Chrome and MS Edge browsers.

Two:

I use Narrator to do everything with my emails in the Windows 10 Mail app!

Three:

I use Narrator with the following Windows 10 apps:

The News app, Twitter app, The weather app, the Skype app, Mail, Calendar, and People apps.

I write tutorials with Narrator using Notepad and Google docs using Waterfox.

Narrator also works well with Waterfox browser.

I use Narrator to navigate all of Windows 10 including the settings app, start menu, control panel, and much more.

I use Narrator a lot, to get NVDA and JAWS to start again.

Sometimes, JAWS and NVDA lock up, and Narrator gets me out of a lot of jams.

I have used Narrator twice, to reset both of my laptops to factory defaults.

Narrator is a pretty good screen reader, now, I believe.

I would put NVDA first, then Narrator, then unbelievably, JAWS third.

I only use JAWS for a couple of tasks. JAWS does not work with hardly any of the Windows 10 apps, but Narrator does.

I hope that helps you do your presentation.

Email me off list if you need anymore help!

Yes, I really like your channel.  I have subscribed already!   You have so much fun with Hula, what sort of dog is she??  I only have one video, so far and my channel is all about getting outside and enjoying nature, so I have created a character called Bryan who is far more out-spoken than I am, here's the link:

Yes, when you split the video into lets say, ten split videos, you
should have ten clips on the timeline. Just use the arrow kays to go
to each clip or if you know that it was the video after the second
split, you can go to the second video and press space to hear if it's
the one you are looking for and if it is, just press delete.

I always make double sure that it is the clip I want to delete and
then I'll hit delete.

You can also use undo like you would have done in word and the clip
will come back again or if you don't like the effect you have just put
in, you can use undo there as well.

Then you can go back to the video where the part is that you want to

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.

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.

I have Outlook 2007 and after pressing enter on a message in the folder

announces the message format, then the control type i.e "Dialog, Message

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
