Re: Reading epub books with NVDA

Ralf Kefferpuetz
 

Wow, that’s an amazing piece of software!

I downloaded the portable version and tried it out with some of my ebooks in different formats.

The program seems to be fully accessible in most parts and is easy to handle. It continues where you stopped with your ebook, gives text to speech out put through your installed Sapi synthesizers and you even can convert the complete book to MP3 in a few seconds, really impressive.

Thanks for this tip!

 

Cheers,

  Ralf

Hi,

 

If you press F1 while in Edge, there is a help segment that includes keyboard shortcuts for epub files. It should tell you how to navigate your epub file.

Hi,

with Edge, NVDA sees only the first portion of the book, and now

amount of arrowing down will get me to the next page at some point.

Also, how do I get to the table of contents? There's a toolbar button

called table of contents, but when I press it, nothing seems to

happen.

What's the secret to reading an epub with NVDA and Edge efficiently?

Ollie, from another list, I wanted to tell you how to handle zip files. Just navigate to the file, hit your context key and arrow to extract. Or, maybe it says extract all. By default, the files will be put in a directory under your current directory with the zip file name as the name of the directory. Go into that directory and do what you want with the files.

Re: Reading epub books with NVDA

Yes,

program Balabolka is compatible with Nvda.

It reads the format Epup as txt and you open Balabolka, find epup format and you start the reading.

You can use also two keys: Key F5 for reading and key F7 for stop the reading.

Balabolka can also convert textfiles to mp3.

Re: NVDA Saying "Edit" Before Every Line in Microsoft Word After Google Docs Changes It

 

Hello,
I found out how to remove this "edit" before each line.
Select all and go to the applications menu (right-click) then hit enter on "Remove Content Controls, E". This made the document read normally.

Are content controlled documents not reading correctly known to the NVDA development team?
Thank you,

Hi,
is this really becoming an rtfm list? *grin*
The help page that opens when I press f1 does not mention epub,
neither does it link to anything that looks like it might mention

the experience delightful? If so, how did you navigate?
