Re: when typing message, keys do not speak when I type

Hi Marvin,

When posting a follow up to something, as your message is, could you please reply to the earlier message?  Because this message appeared out of context for me, I have no idea what your problem is, what you've tried or how best to help you.  if you're trying to get keys to speak, there are a couple of options - on the keyboard settings page NVDA+control+k - you can also toggle these options with keystrokes without going into the settings:
- Speak typed characters (reads letters and numbers etc as you press them) - toggle with NVDA+2
- Speak typed words - toggle with NVDA+3
- Speak command keys (enter, alt+f4, etc) - toggle with NVDA+4

Note that those numbers are on the number row (above the alphabet), not the number pad.

Otherwise, please reiterate what you are trying to get to read where.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi Tina, nice to see you here. If you press the applications key on the offending word, you'll find a list of options. Unless I'm missing something, it's pretty limited, but you can at least ignore a word or add it to the dictionary. I hope that helps.

Perhaps a silly question, but are you certain you are on the most recent version? If this is a feature they have added recently, it may not be in your version if you are even a little behind the current release.

Re: not able to start NVDA using shortcut Ctrl + alt + space

Arlene
 

Hello, What I do is this, I do alt enter. Then tab until you hear something like create short cut. You check it by doing  alt control N while in the NVDA program or whatever screen reader you are working with.  Or, you can do it when you instal it.  If that doesn’t work, In my case this happened to me.   I did create the short cut. But when I shut down NVDA I restarted it again. But nothing happened.  I just went in there and redid it. Then finally it worked.  Sometimes with fresh new computers you have to make sure it took. Sometimes it will do the short cut but when you shut down NVDA or whatever you have on your new system if it doesn’t work and you know it did. You may have to go back into that program and do it again. But make sure it works.

Hello Artin,


I've seen that in Android, but not in Windows. I was wondering whether that would be possible in Windows as well.


While it's true that Brave blocks ads by default, they now have an option to let you support the sites you like, disabling ad blocking for those specific cases.


Ciao,

Re: Custom Hot Key Disappears On NVDA Update

Richard Wells
 

Brian: What I am saying is that I prefer not to use a desktop shortcut
at all. Rather, I have assigned ALT+CONTROL+V to the NVDA shortcut .lnk
that the installer adds to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start
Menu\Programs\NVDA and when NVDA updates, it over-writes that shortcut
and removes my modification. That shortcut, by default has no hot key
assigned to it. I choose to assign it there and I would prefer that NVDA
updates honor my choice to do it that way. I am simply using the
shortcut that NVDA addes to that folder structure and making a simple
modification to it. I hope I am making myself understood.

Are you saying that if you duplicate the desktop shortcut and use a

bit from the field that starts nvda to the new shortcut, and then it
matters not what it does to the other one. I believe you might be able
to delete it but I'm not sure if it stays deleted through an update,
but your new one should always still work.
This way you can do clever stuff like run a batch file to  say, grab a
log and restart with it displayed and all that sort of thing.

Subject: [nvda] Custom Hot Key Disappears On NVDA Update


My hot key disappears each time I update NVDA. The reason for this is, I
don't use the desktop shortcut and I also use a different hot key than
the default. I prefer to assign the hot key ALT+CONTROL+V and I use the
LNK found at C:\programdata\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\NVDA
to do this. It would be nice if the NVDA install/update was smart enough
to honor custom configurations like mine.






Re: playing music on this new laptop

Gene
 

an example of why having an external sound card if problems occur with the one you usually use is a good idea.   I have no idea if this would solve the problem.  If a system restore point is available from before the problem started, that would be less work and there is a good chance it would solve the problem if it is software related.  There is a small risk when running system restore but it is widely used and if used properly, the risk is low.

Uninstalling the soundcard from device manager and performing a new hardware search out of the device manager would reinstall the soundcard, its drivers and reset all sound configurations to their defaults.

Of course that would need sighted help.

Impossible unless there are balance controls for every audio source.  In Windows 7 there is one universal balance control.  The description of the problem states that NVDA comes from one channel.  It also states that music audio is coming from the other channel.  Has Windows 100 changed sound card settings so that, for example, NVDA has its own balance settings and Winamp, for example has its own balance settings?

Hi

It sounds like the stereo balance is turned all the way to one side or the other depending on the sound source.  Check the volume mixer to see if this is the case.  Press Windows+b to move focus to the system tray then use arrow keys to find the entry for speakers and press the  applications key.  You should see volume mixer in the context menu displayed.

Hi All,



I have two main problems with outlook 2016 - the 32bit version that you can
download and install from office 365.



  1.. I get blank line over and over when arrowing through messages. Is
there a way to ignore / compress more than one blank line in a row?
  2.. Often the outlook crashes and restarts. This only happens with NVDA. I
have briefed several on this list before and have sent in logs etc. Does
this crashing on certain messages happen to anyone else? If I view the
message by either looking at it from a forward or a reply it doesn't crash.
Thanks so much for any input.

Re: playing music on this new laptop

Unless the sound card settings have been enhanced with more control abilities in Windows 10, your suggestion and solution are impossible. In Windows 7 there is one balance setting that affects all sound.  If this is the case in Windows 10, then it isn't a balance problem.  I don't know what the problem is and if rebooting doesn't solve the problem and a restore point from before the problem isn't available, I'm not sure what might be done to solve the problem.

OK I think you need to look at whatever the applet is for the sound system
and look at the balance control settings. I've encountered people using the
balance as if it were volume. Often this happens due to the actual label
being read by nvda being out of step with the sliders so to speak.
 If its not that then maybe the actual machine has an issue as normally
everything comes out of the default  system the same. the fact that the nvda
can be made to do this proves it should be possible unless there is a
hardware issue somewhere on the sound side. Very unlikely unless the music
has in fact only been recorded on one side. I assume that the system sounds
come out of both?

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA and Combo Boxes, Agreements?

Weeeell, its all down to how you use the system is it not? If you have never
been sighted ten I find most have it on as its easier, but if like me you
were sighted once having each on a new line can be confusing. It really
depends on how well the page was designed though. Some leave no space
between them and this can be fiddly to get to work out which combo box or
whatever active control it is, is in play.
Another annoyance is that often sites mix normal combos with the ones that
will jump out as soon as you start to change them. of course you can get
around this with pressing extra keys as you cursor, but its bad design.
 On the issue of licence accepting. this is an ongoing issue both online and
in some installers. I find often one has to resort to  screen navigation to
find the individual buttons for accept and not accept.
 Another bit of bad design.
 My current annoyance is Capchars with pictures, but that is a whole other
subject so I will not talk about it here. Its bad enough that forums seem to
not use headers or other easy to navigate devices these days which makes
them almost unusable if you want to use them quickly.

Hi.

One would argue though, that separating links and other controls on their
own line is a feature rather than how a screen reader (which should try and
lay out elements on a page similarly to how a sighted person sees it) should
operate. Persons that normally advocate for this change are previous users
of other screen readers, but I doubt that is enough to justify the change.







Re: blank lines in outlook 2016

Gene
 

I don't see the point.  What is wanted is something that skips blank lines when you down arrow and moves directly to the next line with text.  If there are three blank lines between the line of text you are on and the next line, down arrowing would skip those three blank lines and read the next line with text.

Perhaps it should be suggested that a setting be adopted that would skip
blank lines.

If you want to locate bits to cut and paste as I do all the time for scripts
for readers the blank line can become just a little annoying!

Why are you down arrowing through the message?  Do you have to do so for
some reason?  If you use read to end, no blank lines will be spoken.

Hi All,



I have two main problems with outlook 2016 - the 32bit version that you can
download and install from office 365.



  1.. I get blank line over and over when arrowing through messages. Is
there a way to ignore / compress more than one blank line in a row?
  2.. Often the outlook crashes and restarts. This only happens with NVDA. I
have briefed several on this list before and have sent in logs etc. Does
this crashing on certain messages happen to anyone else? If I view the
message by either looking at it from a forward or a reply it doesn't crash.
Thanks so much for any input.

Re: playing music on this new laptop

Hi

It sounds like the stereo balance is turned all the way to one side or the other depending on the sound source.  Check the volume mixer to see if this is the case.  Press Windows+b to move focus to the system tray then use arrow keys to find the entry for speakers and press the  applications key.  You should see volume mixer in the context menu displayed.

 

 

Cheers

Chris

I don't know what is causing the screen-reader to come from one side and the music from the other, in that case.

 

Have you tried the usual possible remedy of rebooting? 

 

When did the problem begin?  You might try running a restore point from before that time.  Aside from that, I'm not sure if I have other suggestions.

Are the speakers USB speakers?  What happens if they are, if you disconnect them from the computer and connect them again, in other words, unplug the USB plug and plug it in again? 

 

While the speakers are unplugged, is sound heard through the internal speakers as it should be?

Another thing I forgot was my friend Max who drives Handy dart he played the

Foo fighters All my life and he too said it came through one speaker and NVDA came through the  other speaker.  Only the right speaker plays the music.  He thinks I should get a Bluetooth speaker.  Otherwise I’ll blow the speakers.  This is an Acer laptop and I have realtec speakers if this is a help.

Hi list: Arlene here.  I tried to fix the balance on my new laptop.  On the right speaker I can hear my music.  On the left speaker I hear NVDA coming through.  I want to hear music on both speakers.  I can get NVDA to speak through both the speakers.  I tried to balance the music on the left speaker. But the music will not move to the left speaker.  How does one do that. I did see where you can have it set to default Microsoft sound. Shell I do that and see what happens?  My room mate’s brother played his black Sabith and he discovered that only the right speaker played the music.  Do I need to get a Bluetooth speaker? Or do I set it back to Microsoft default sound or whatever it was I did see. I have realtec speakers if that is a help. Sorry for all my rambling.  I had this computer since February 27th

Actually it does. This is the key configured by default used on TeamTalk when you are on PTT mode.
However it can be easily changed, but I just thought I'd point it out.

Re: Custom Hot Key Disappears On NVDA Update

 

Quotes probably won't work either. I just tried it :)
Try this
%programfiles(X86)%\nvda\nvda.exe -r
It worked for me.

Joseph: running %programfiles%\nvda\nvda.exe -r results in the following
error: Windows cannot find 'C:\Program'. Make sure you typed the name

again.

If that is even possible (I'm sure it is, but need to double-check).
You can of course reassign shortcut keys.

Subject: [nvda] Custom Hot Key Disappears On NVDA Update

My hot key disappears each time I update NVDA. The reason for this
is, I don't use the desktop shortcut and I also use a different hot
key than the default. I prefer to assign the hot key ALT+CONTROL+V
and I use the LNK found at C:\programdata\Microsoft\Windows\Start
Menu\Programs\NVDA to do this. It would be nice if the NVDA
install/update was smart enough to honor custom configurations like
mine.

Hi guys,
Quite a while ago I posted here about the very same subject and at that time there was a workaround that really worked like a charm.
Trouble is, it doesn't seem to work anymore.

So, would any of you happen to know of a way to get to the comments' section on a YouTube video in a reliable manner?
Lately, for me, it's been a hit and miss. And honestly, let me tell you, it has been more of a miss than a hit. Really not fun to waste so much time with something that should be easy peasy, as I like to say.

I'm sending this one to the NVDA add-ons list as well, in case someone thinks it'd be a good idea to make an add-on to work with it and give it a solution once and for all.
Were I happen to have enough skills with it I could, should and would very well start such a project.

Cheers,
Marcio.
