Re: Query about Gmail using chrome with NVDA

 

Pretty much exactly like you create it, and I'm presuming we're not talking about a Gmail system label like Inbox, Sent, Chat, etc., which can be hidden, but not deleted.

Once you're in Settings, Labels then use screen reader search to find the Create new label button.  This is positioned in the label table just above the entries for user created labels. Then I start navigating down the first column of the table until I hit the label I'm interested in (one could search for it, too).  Once I'm on that label's line, I navigate across the columns until I hit the "Remove" action, which deletes the label when activated.

Removing a label does not delete any messages to which the label is assigned.  You would have to do that first, before removing the label.  When a label is removed the messages that had only that label assigned end up back in your Inbox.

Joseph Lee's add-ons: update rollout in progress #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Many of my add-ons are receiving updates today (for some, you’ll notice version jumps, but don’t worry). Specifically, users of following add-ons will see an update today:

 

  • Add-on Updater (19.06): registers new add-ons added to the community website.
  • Easy Table Navigator (1.5): compatibility with alpha/beta snapshots.
  • Enhanced Touch Gestures (19.05.1): compatibility with alpha/beta snapshots.
  • Golden Cursor (3.6): compatibility with alpha/beta snapshots.
  • Object Location Tones (19.05.1): compatibility with alpha/beta snapshots.
  • ObjPad (19.05.1): compatibility with alpha/beta snapshots.
  • SystrayList (3.5): compatibility with alpha/beta snapshots.
  • Virtual Review (2.7): compatibility with alpha/beta snapshots.

 

Several important notes:

 

  1. These add-ons will be released in stages, so hopefully all of them should see the updates in the next few hours.
  2. Add-ons marked for compatibility with alpha/beta snapshots received manifest updates. I will not declare these as officially compatible with 2019.2 until beta 1 is released (although those of you using beta snapshots are running code that is similar to alpha builds at the moment).

 

Cheers,

Joseph


Has anyone else noticed a change in the behavior of Focus Highlight?

 

Or, perhaps more accurately, have your sighted assistant(s), as we're the ones that rely on this add-on.  It could be an NVDA change, too

Up until very recently, virtually everything generally defaulted to being in browse mode when I opened it, generally with the "thick red line" which indicates that you're in browse mode and the navigator object and focus object are one and the same.  This was particularly true when I landed on File Explorer (as a whole) and items in the list which I display using Details View.  It was also generally true in many other places.

For the last few days, everything seems to be opening in focus mode that used to be opening in browse mode, and what's weirder is I can't get the mode to toggle.  I was trying to play with doing a multi-file select with individual files in File Explorer, and could not get NVDA+space to shift me back to focus mode so I could select, move along then CTRL+select (spacebar), etc.

Even the buttons in dialogs are shown as being in focus mode when I land on them, e.g., the Winver Close button.

I am running Windows 10, Version 1809, Build 17763.529  and NVDA 2019.1.1 and Focus Highlight 6.0.  This is really peculiar, and definitely not what I've been used to.

Re: Converting PDF to Word

 

Quentin,

            I'm well aware of the issue with image PDFs.  There are so many in existence that they'll be landing in peoples' laps for decades to come.

            I have mentioned Tracker Software's PDF-XChange Viewer as an excellent OCR tool.  It's not fully accessible overall, but the OCR function is, and it supports English, Spanish, French, & German "as shipped" and you can get, also at no cost, various Language Extension Packages that cover many, many more.

            Here's the post in the archives where I give the step-by-step instructions for doing OCR with PDF-XChange Viewer.   OCR/PDF software is something, much like screen readers, where having minimal proficiency with more than one can pull one's proverbial bacon out of the fire.

Re: Extracting Text From Image in Word

 

Do you have a flatbed scanner or multi-function machine that came with OCR software (and most have in recent years)?

If so, and you are able to select those graphics, I'd simply select them, paste each on a single page, print them and scan them using the scanner and OCR.  So long as you have a system for knowing which belongs where (which could include a single additional annotation) that could work.

That or just copying the image, creating a separate word file including an annotation regarding source, pasting it in and using the screen reader OCR on that second document which would just contain pages of the images to make it easy for the OCR software to get only what it needs.

Extracting Text From Image in Word

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,

I am currently reading a Bookshare file in the Word format, and am
encountering graphics without alttext. These graphics contain just a
lot of text and likely no visual content themselves - graphics are of
the text of literary passages - and I am urgently looking for
solutions to be able to use OCR on them or extract their textual
content via similar means.

I have tried using the NVDA OCR add-on but I just cannot get object
navigation in NVDA to narrow down and review the graphic object in
Word, I do not have Kurzweil or Fine Reader (and likely will not be
getting them since the exam for which I am requiring to practise is on
Saturday itself), but would probably be happy to use an online
solution or a lightweight freeware.

I would greatly appreciate any urgently sought assistance or suggestions.

Thanks.

Re: Converting PDF to Word

Quentin Christensen
 

The other point on this is that the reason many people want to convert from PDF to word, is to try and read a PDF document.

IF the PDF file has been created well to begin with, you should be able to read it just find in Adobe reader, Foxit PDF reader, and probably others.  If you can't read it in those (using a current version of both the reader and NVDA), then it's likely the PDF file was created as an image of text - a lot of office photocopier / scanners still do this.  In that case, what you really need to do is run the file through some kind of OCR (Optical Character Recognition).  NVDA has access to a basic OCR function in Windows 10 or with the OCR add-on in earlier versions.  Professional OCR programs like Abbyy FineReader or OmniPage may do a better job.

For converting from Word to PDF, the export function in Word itself makes quite readable PDF files.  For those who have the NVDA Certification, that's how I make the PDF certificates.

Kind regards

Quentin.

No, or at least not per se.

There are various converters out there, including modern versions of MS-Word itself, which can read PDFs and then save them as Word files (or vice versa).

A web search on "PDF to DOCX" turns up myriad options.  

But none of these directly involve NVDA and I have no idea which may or may not be accessible.  Like so many things, it's up to you to determine that by trial and error.

Re: Getting your Windows Version

 

Hi,
NVDA will log this info as part of its log (if the log is not disabled, that
is). Note that NVDA will record the version text as reported by Windows, not
its public-facing name e.g. NVDA will report "6.1.7601" instead of "Windows
7 Service Pack 1".
Cheers,
Joseph

Thanks.   I know that it's impossible, given the number of synths and the different choices they make, for this to be consistent - but I often forget that it's not.

I also think that Antony's idea is definitely worthy of consideration, and not just for NVDA.  I'd really love it if most of my software were to report it's own name and version number followed by, "running under," the OS in question and its version number/build number (whatever's appropriate) as well.   Anyone assisting on technical issues generally needs to have both and while I'd not expect the version information for any application software to be presented via an OS version function, the reverse is not true.

Re: Getting your Windows Version

 

Hi,

As for version text announced as dates: this is due to speech synthesizer in use.

For reference (for anyone new and old to this forum): whenever I ask for debug logs dealing with Windows 10, I will ask you to specify Windows 10 version (plus build number for people using Preview releases), along with NVDA release you’ve got. That way I can tell you what to do. Also note that I don’t refer t Windows 10 releases by marketing names – I go by YYMM.

Cheers,

Joseph
