Re: speech viewer help

 

I  was going to look for the keystrokes to open the log viewer, but just couldn't find anything.
Am I missing something here or is it out of the keystrokes reference?

Re: Alex voice from the mac with NVDA?

Devin Prater
 

There is one that connects to the mac, running a speech server, over the network. It's okay, but it'd require you to have the Mac close to the PC to hear the speech, unless you have a Mac running in a virtual machine which would take up a good bit of RAM.

I no there was 1 that only worked when there were certon words, but I think this one works using something with the command  line, although I could be wrong.

Hi Matt, I saw this question being asked on another platform sometime last year and I heard there that apparently that addon doesn't exist any more because it was too buggy, I would love to know if that has changed, the Alex voice is quite good for reading long pieces of text!

Re: Ad blocker for NVDA and Firefox?

JM Casey
 

Hi.

 

I just started using uBlock Origin, which was already mentioned. I think it is working pretty well and have noticed it block a few things. It seems configurable through a standard web-based menu. However, there is supposed to be a big “power” button or something in the corner of the window that lets you turn it on and off directly for specific websites; I have not figured out yet how to access this button, but to be honest I haven’t spent a lot of time looking at the add-on yet.

Hello all,

 

I’m noticing more and more difficulty doing Google searches and reading websites due to ads and other clutter. Would someone be able to recommend an ad blocker which works well with the latest version of NVDA and Firefox? Perhaps another browser would work better?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Jan


Re: Ad blocker for NVDA and Firefox?

 

Janet,
Try UBlock Origin, that's what I use and works quite well.
I used to use AdBlock Plus before this one, which by the way has a few things to set up according with your needs and such, so perhaps you'd like this one more than the other.
As my main intent with this add-on was skip YouTube ads, don't quote me on whether it does block other ads but I'd believe it does.
Actually, I strongly believe it does, but can't say for sure. I haven't seen any single ad from Google even before using the add-on, so no differences in this regard.

Well, hope that helps you a bit.

Re: LAPTOP VS DESKTOP

George McCoy <slr1bpz@...>
 

That's because it's a key conflict.  in the laptop layout, nvda plus down arrow is read next line.  The default layout always takes precedence when there's a key conflict.

Brian, what did you end up doing to fix this? Mine started doing it the day before yesterday. It hasn't done it yet today, but I haven't been on the computer very long. If you need to answer this in the chat list, you can. I'm subscribed there.

I can not do this since its now fixed. if you can upload them to a dropbox link and post the link to my private email I shall pass this on for you. Of course you may have had the guy talk to you directly already, so if you have had this and its resolved your problems, let the rest of us know on this list for future ref.

Windows 10 App Essentials 19.03.1 is on its way #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials 19.03.1 is on its way (will be ready for update in about 40 minutes). This release includes a fix for a problem where after closing Mail app, NVDA won’t say things or play error tones continuously.

 

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: Reviewing the screen, help

Gene
 

It may just be getting used to it. 
 
and if you want to read from where you are to the end, if you issue the command numpad plus, the rest of the object will be read, which, in the case of the DOS prompt, is the rest of the screen and the review position will be changed as you read.

I'd think I could move around the screen. Actually, perhaps I've done it a few times before, though it's not something I'm fond of :)

I'm not sure what you are saying.  Try being at the Command Prompt and typing something like dir and pressing enter.  the point is to get information on the screen, it doesn't matter just what you do to get text displayed.
Now, try moving with numpad 7 and numpad 9.  To hear the current line, use numpad 8.  All these commands are just numpad keys by themselves, not in combination with numpad insert or anything else.  Can you move around the screen?

It used to be easier, seriously?
Since I started using this prompt it kept the very same way. When it was different? Surely I'd rather the old way then :)

Hi,
I also couldn't figure out a way of reading the information presented on the screen.
As a workaround, if you want, you could try what follows:
1. Being on the prompt, press "ALT+Spacebar"
2. Up/down arrow until you find "edit" and press enter
3. Up/down arrow until you find "select all" and press enter.
You've just selected all the content which is on the screen at this point.
4. Press "ALT+Spacebar" again
5. Up/down arrow until "edit"
6. Up/down arrow until "copy".
You've just copied what you selected. Now all that content is on your clipboard.
7. Open Notepad and paste the content there so you can read.

Hi all,


Using NVDA in Windows 10:


When I "run" the cmd command I get the system command prompt. Then I type in a command such as DIR or shutdown followed by slash question mark.  I get a screen full of command line switch options but I can't figure out how to get NVDA to read them to me. Probably one of the review modes, but I just can't figure it out. Can anyone help, please?


Thanks.
