Paul,
While you haven't asked my opinion on this, please let me tell you. You're way better learning the ribbons than trying workarounds not to deal with them.
They aren't anything hard to learn and I could get the hang of it all in less than an hour. There are two excellent tutorials, one by Brian V and the other by Gene which will teach you all you need to know. I can send them to you if you want me to do it.

Cheers,

A bit of soundcard trouble

Anne Günther
 

Hi,
I'm using an usb-soundcard for work regularly, but don't want to send the nvda speech through that.
So I set the soundcard for that to the inbuild one of my laptop instead of "soundmapper". But when I puthe usb-card in, the speech is routed through it. I have to open the option dialogue for the speec engine and confirm that (the soundcard is still like I set it), then it works as intended.
Kind of the same when I remove the Usb-card. No speech until I reconfirmed the dialogue.
Is it me, or is it nvda? :-) And is there a way to prevent it?
take care, Guenni

Re: NVDA and Microsoft Edge

Luke Davis
 

Gene seems quite certain in the conclusion that there is some deeper technical problem going on here, so I will withdraw my suggestion. I admit I was not following this thread closely enough to pick up on whatever he did.

As an aside, I will note that software does not always work as intended in some system configurations or environments. For example, a couple years ago, I experienced a "sticking" effect with skim reading and say all on page load, that looked very much like what Rayn described. It only happened on certain websites, and I don't think I was able to replicate it on another machine, but it did happen, and often enough to be a real pain.

In retrospect, that is unlikely to be what's happening here, it just seemed like a trivial thing to look into or attempt.

Re: NVDA and Microsoft Edge

Gene
 

Skim reading isn't the problem.  Here is the description of skim reading from the user guide.
Allow skim reading in Say All

If on, certain navigation commands (such as quick navigation in browse mode or moving by line or paragraph) do not stop Say All, rather Say All jumps to the new position and continues reading.----- Original Message -----
The description of the problem is as follows:
>On Edge and Firefox I have to let it read the entire page and cannot stop it or go back to anything else it won’t read anything else.
This is a technical problem and can't be solved by changing settings.

It sounds like you may have skim reading turned on.
Press NVDA+ctrl+k, and look for "allow skim reading in say all". If that is
checked, uncheck it. I bet firefox and whatever else will work fine after that.

You might also want to press NVDA+ctrl+b, and uncheck "Automatic say all on page
load".

Re: strange thing in Nvda

Luke Davis
 

In Firefox, if you open the download window while the file is still downloading, the download percentage is shown on screen. It may be that this changing status wasn't announced previously but is now, I can't recall, although I thought it was. In any case, this is not related to status bar progress announcements.

Regardless the solution is simple: don't watch the download in progress. In other words: if you start a large download, go browse somewhere else and don't open the downloads window (which Firefox calls a library).

I believe there was a problem with notepad++ latest version, that prevented it from working with 2019.1.1. If you use NVDA beta, the fix should be in.

Hi.  You can download Python from www.python.org as it comes with a python interactive shell.  Download and install the latest package making sure it is Python3.  Support for Python 2 will be dropped next year.  During installation, make sure you choose to have Python on your environment's path.  After installation, go to CMD, then type the following:


Python --version and you should get the following output if installation is done correctly

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17763.557]
(c) 2018 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\jaffar>py -3
Python 3.7.3 (v3.7.3:ef4ec6ed12, Mar 25 2019, 22:22:05) [MSC v.1916 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>>


now you can output your first python program


print ("Hello Python")


output:


Hello Python!


Cheers!

Hi


Maybe you got it on speak and beep.


Use the nvda key + letter U to toggle it to the one you want. for example beep, speak and beep , speak or none.

Also, at this point in time, there is nearly dead Edge, which isn't worth dedicating any effort on, and being born Chromium-based Edge, which is handled quite well by screen readers, as it is built on the same foundation as the Google Chrome web browser.

If you're interested in Edge, then you are better off using the development version, which will likely go to production in the second feature update of 2019, or use Chrome instead for the time being, as it's so similar.

If you want the direct download link for the Development (Dev) channel Chromium-based Edge, this is it:

That link takes you directly to download, as I've already consented to license terms before copying it.  If you activate this you should immediately have a Save dialog presented for the Dev Edge installer.
