Re: Browse mode navigation by heading in large Word document does not always work

Felix G.
 

Hi,
NVDA contains a mechanism, called a watchdog, which will terminate
certain routines when they block the main message loop for too long.
Maybe this is what happens.
In the Python console, you can type:
import watchdog
watchdog.terminate()
Can you navigate then?
Please note that you should start the watchdog again after completing
your tests as NVDA is more liable to crash with the watchdog disabled.
The easiest way to get it back is simply to restart NVDA. But of
course, you can also:
import watchdog
watchdog.initialize()
Best,
Felix

Hello NVDA users:



I have a large Word document (over 180 pages) which contains numerous annotations ()comments, insertions and deletions) and is well structured with nested headings. There are 9 chapters at heading level 2 and many subsections at heading levels 3, 4 and 5. In browse mode, I can navigate through the first set of chapters using the 2 key. Each of these chapters is only 5 to 10 pages in length. However, when I attempt to navigate to a chapter that is 60 pages beyond the current chapter, pressing the 2 key has no effect. I can successfully navigate to subsections of the large chapter using the 3, 4 or 5 keys.



How does NVDA navigate a document in browse mode, does it go line by line until it reaches the next intended object, or does it perform a search, using Word’s built-in API’s? If it searches line by line, perhaps I am experiencing the same issue related to a timeout in the elements dialog when too many annotations are present.



Thanks, Rick

Can you use screen review and object nav to get around that area? I don't use outlook but I do use both views extensively. I hope that helps a bit.

No.  Firefox add-ons and Chrome Extensions are not interchangeable.

The developer of the Chrome Captcha Solver extension had also made an add-on for Firefox, also in alpha-beta testing stage, that has been withdrawn for the time being.  I have requested that he post again if the Firefox Add-On is released again.

Re: OCR feature of NVDA seems to only work on visible portion of a graphic

 

If you want file OCR, if it is a PDF, open it in Microsoft word 2016, if it is an image, import the picture to One Note, wait a few minutes, and then hit shift F10. Then hit copy text from image. Don't use the NVDA OCR at all if you want it to OCR the file, regardless of screen resolution. The copy text from image button is only in the One Note app for windows 10.

Re: Reading Subtitles with NVDA or Any Other TTS

 

No, it hasn't :(
It sounds like recent versions of this player really have changed things a bit. If one wants this feature then one needs to use a previous version other than the latest one.

Hi


If you installed all of the voices and only wanted to keep the english ones
the other voices can be uninstalled from program and features i think it is
called in the control panel. You will need to go down the list and uninstall
the voices you do not want.


If you want the english ones only you will need to note which ones they
are.


Under the voice settings menu to get there press the ctrl key + nvda key +
the letter V it should tell you what synth package you are using there. Tab
down to change and change to speech platform.


When you have changed it then after that you can tab to voices then arrow
down or up the list to see which ones they are.


I do not play with the languages as i only speak english and only use
english voices.


I think also there is a add on called switch synth you can get from the add
on web page that some use but not me.

The speech hub package is only in english all of the synth and voices. You
will need to install the add on as well for nvda to see the package after
the main file has been installed.


the add on can be found under c: drive then program files x86 then speech

will need to be installed the usual way for nvda to see the package.


The link to this one from drop box is

I think the following website if i remember right you can get free TTS
voices as well. if i remember right you do not have to buy the package as
the synths and voices which are free can be installed. I thin there are
commercial ones but you have to buy them. I thought i had lost this link a

I can drop box them for you they are about 340 meg with all voices and the
speech platform runtime engine.


You will need a program like 7 zip or one that can unzip the files for you
first. When done look for the speech platform runtime engine and install it
first. It is the only file that does not have the name of the file with TTS
in in standing for text to speech and the name of the voice and language.


You can get it from my drop box account at
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0rokrf6a4qijsvf/Speech%20Platform%2011%20engine%20and%20voices.zip?dl=0


The speech hub package also has other synths and voices but in a package
and
can be gotten off the following website at http://www.speakon.org.uk/

When you download the speech hub package you will also need to install the
add on so nvda can see the synths and voices. So the main package will get
installed then under your c: drive program files x86 then speech hub then
the folder for the add on it will need to be installed into nvda. Then
later
on you can change to those other synth and voices.


There may be other software there that you may like to try.

Re: OCR feature of NVDA seems to only work on visible portion of a graphic

Ian Blackburn
 

You are correct it only recognises the visible image which if the whole image isn’t on the screen it won’t get the whole image so therefore it is not looking at the actual file

Hello NVDA Group:

 

Earlie this week, I received an email, which I opened in the desktop version of Outlook 365, that contained a graphic of a screenshot full of text. With my laptop undocked, I performed OCR using NVDA+R on the graphic and read the contents. Later that day, with my laptop in a docking station, which is connected to a low resolution, large-screen monitor, I performed the same OCR function. Fewer lines of text were available, leading me to believe that the OCR is being performed on the visible portion of the graphic and not on the entire graphic itself.

 

As a blind user, I have no idea of how much of a graphic is visible, so if this is the case, I consider this a significant problem. Could someone please confirm whether my assumption is correct?

There are 9 chapters at heading level 2 and many subsections at heading levels 3, 4 and 5. In browse mode, I can navigate through the first set of chapters using the 2 key. Each of these chapters is only 5 to 10 pages in length. However, when I attempt to navigate to a chapter that is 60 pages beyond the current chapter, pressing the 2 key has no effect. I can successfully navigate to subsections of the large chapter using the 3, 4 or 5 keys.

 

How does NVDA navigate a document in browse mode, does it go line by line until it reaches the next intended object, or does it perform a search, using Word’s built-in API’s? If it searches line by line, perhaps I am experiencing the same issue related to a timeout in the elements dialog when too many annotations are present.

 

Thanks, Rick

 

 


OCR feature of NVDA seems to only work on visible portion of a graphic

Rick
 

Hello NVDA Group:

 

Earlie this week, I received an email, which I opened in the desktop version of Outlook 365, that contained a graphic of a screenshot full of text. With my laptop undocked, I performed OCR using NVDA+R on the graphic and read the contents. Later that day, with my laptop in a docking station, which is connected to a low resolution, large-screen monitor, I performed the same OCR function. Fewer lines of text were available, leading me to believe that the OCR is being performed on the visible portion of the graphic and not on the entire graphic itself.

 

As a blind user, I have no idea of how much of a graphic is visible, so if this is the case, I consider this a significant problem. Could someone please confirm whether my assumption is correct?

 

Thanks, Rick

 

               

 


Re: how to copy text using clip speak?

 

It depends what text it is, control c and v work for most things, if its a weird error you can not coppy, you can hit printscreen to get a screenshot for people, I have on occasion sent an audio recording of my reader and devs have handled it.

You use the same keys as always. Clipspeak speaks the action being taken.
That's all it does.

Hi everyone,

Our In-Process blog has a new entry, just in time for Easter!


This post covers NVDA 2019.1.1, as well as information on the NVDA log, and why we don't have a Mac (or Android) version.

Have a wonderful Easter!

Quentin.

Re: NVDA and Outlook

 

Although this is the NVDA group, I wrote the following for JAWS, and the basic principles apply and I have to believe that the "JAWS to NVDA" translation is something most of the readership can do.  I'll be happy to explain should that become necessary:
Another "for JAWS resource" for this can be found here:  

A Guide for Configuring Outlook with JAWS - hartgen.org

For keyboard shortcuts, see the Microsoft help page for Outlook.

And, finally, from a tutorial I give to many of my students (and which repeats some of what's in the prior documents):

Outlook e-mail client – This section is a work in progress

Outlook is one of the oldest e-mail clients that’s ubiquitous in business settings.  It is also very well supported by screen readers.  Like most Microsoft programs, as versions come out they get more and more “bells and whistles” but the controls and shortcuts for core functions have been around since the beginning and will be the same no matter what version you happen to be using.

Some initial tweaks that make Outlook easier to use with a screen reader:

·         Turn off the Reading Pane:  ALT+V, PN, O

·         Turn off the To-Do Bar:  ALT+V, B, O

·         Turn off message grouping.  By default, Outlook groups messages in clusters based on when they arrived, e.g., Today, Yesterday, A Week Ago, etc.  If you’d prefer to have this turned off use ALT+V, AB, W.  That sequence is a toggle, so if you want it back on do the same thing.

If you would prefer that JAWS not read the message subject again when you open a message and/or start reading the message body immediately:

Press INS+V for Quick Settings, and move to and open "Reading Options". In there, adjust the following:

        a. Uncheck "Message Header Field With Message Announcement"

        b. Check "Messages Automatically Read"

 

Outlook 2016 Specific Features

In Outlook 2016, there is a quick way to view your unread messages.  These instructions presume that you have the reading pane turned OFF.  From the message list, press Tab twice to locate the Unread button. Press the Spacebar on this button to show only the messages that are unread. To switch back to showing all messages, Tab to the All button and press the Spacebar to activate it.

In any mailbox, whether Inbox, Sent Mail, or a Folder You’ve Created

If you want to quick search for messages containing specific text:  CTRL+E, fill in the search box with the word or words, hit Enter.  Tab until you are in the “Shell Folder View, Message List” which will now show only messages that match the criteria.  IMPORTANT:  A search remains in effect until you clear it.  To clear it, hit CTRL+E again to go to the search edit box, then hit ESCAPE.

 

To create a new folder

1.      SHIFT+CTRL+E creates the folder and you will be in the edit box where you give it the name of your choosing.  If you tab 2 times, you will end up in the correct position for Step 2.

2.      In the tree view, navigate to the folder under which you wish the new folder to be created.  If you want it on the same level as Inbox, Sent Mail, etc., then navigate to the entry just above Inbox that is announced as your e-mail address.

NVDA and Outlook

Janet Brandly
 

Hello All,

I have just been forced to move from using WLM to Outlook. Can anyone point me in the right direction to learn the best way to set up Outlook, keyboard shortcuts, etc.? I’ve looked through the new users’ manual and checked on Accessibility Central but haven’t found anything.

Thanks,

Jan
