Re: NVDA and sounds

Chris Shook
 

JAWS does have an import function that allows you to import the sounds.
In order to compare, the addon would have to have both a list of sounds and a import feature.
As a side note, sorry about the content of the post describing the sound feature in JAWS. I didn't read it before sending.


Re: NVDA and sounds

 

And what if we could choose the sounds direct from our computers?
It was what I was thinking.

I still remember back in the old days that Dectalk and KeynoteGold TTS are the choice of Screen' reader users. I know that Dectalk Express  cost like $2,000 I don't know anything about KeynoteGold. My first interaction with KeyNoteGold was in 2014 on a School's Braille Note Apex32. 
Back to Dolfen; The UK Daniel was the common voice that's being used  when they doing Demos of there Screen Reader features.
I has happen to had  Chance to play with the Software for two months. and I love some of it's features.

Re: row and column titles

Quentin Christensen
 

Normally you place the focus in the leftmost column you want row titles and press NVDA+control+c to set column headers (or topmost row with headers and press NVDA+control+r).

NVDA automatically treats any column to the right of that as having headers.  Doing it this way makes it a little tricker to understand but more flexible - if you have a table with several sets of column headers in different places in different rows for instance. (Or row headers in different columns etc).

NVDA+shift+r or c works fine if I only need a single column title. It does not work if I choose multiple columns. When I press that key command after selecting two or more columns it types the letter  r or c.

Re: ie unsafe dolphin users

True.
Hal got its name from the talking diabolical robot in the movie 2001: A Space Oddity.
The accompanying screen magnification product was called Lunar.  It was similar to ZoomText, in that it was available in both magnification only and magnification with speech.
The original SuperNova product was Hal bundled with the Lunar screen magnification product.  This is similar to Vispero’s current Fusion product.

Just for info even though non-NVDA related…Dolphin were founded in the mid-80’s to further the development of the HAL screenreader primarily – the forerunner of Supernova.  HAL was very popular in those early days when there were very few packages around but it started to lose influence once the likes of Vocal-Eyes and JAWS for DOS gained market share.  When Supernova eventually came along, although it was very good at what it did with certain software, it did not have the flexibility of other packages.

Re: ie unsafe dolphin users

Ian Westerland
 

Hi. The company is "dolphin Industries" and one of its earliest Screen readers was Hal. At present I am trying a Dolphin suite of programs that includes a Webb Browser called webbIE, a Pod catcher, RSS feed program and, I think there is another one in the Suite. My first impression is that these programs are not as user friendly as others around today but its' a bit early to make a final judgement. The programs are a free download and I found them purely by accident when looking around for an Internet Browser to compare with the commonly used Browsers.

Just for info even though non-NVDA related…Dolphin were founded in the mid-80’s to further the development of the HAL screenreader primarily – the forerunner of Supernova.  HAL was very popular in those early days when there were very few packages around but it started to lose influence once the likes of Vocal-Eyes and JAWS for DOS gained market share.  When Supernova eventually came along, although it was very good at what it did with certain software, it did not have the flexibility of other packages.

Hi, Brad,

 

For years now I thought Dolphin was a screen reader. Thanks for the correction.

Dolphin is not a screen reader, rather it is a company in the U.K. that markets several access technology software products.  Their primary product is the SuperNova Access Suite, which includes a screen reader and screen magnification product.

Dolphin is pretty big in Europe, but not so widely used in the United States, though they have been around for a while.

Dolpin is a screen reader. If your ranking screen readers it is usually
ranked as third.
I don't know mch about it besides it's supposedly not as good as job and
that it is commercial so you have to buy it.
