Re: Can I change NVDA key commands

Hello,

Yes, you can, nvda-n, preferences, input gestures.

There search for “quit” and change it to what you prefer.

 

Cheers,

Subject: [nvda] Can I change NVDA key commands

 

Hi:

 

I’m switching back and forth between JAWS and NVDA for certain things, and, I frequently use the wrong exit command.

 

I notice NVDA+f4 isn’t mapped to anything, so, can I map NVDA+f4 to exit NVDA?

 

Thanks!

Re: Code Factory add-in for NVDA

 

I agree, if and when I can I go for sapi5 synths, I can run them outside the reader and I can use them for things other than the screen reader.

I doubt you have to run two browsers.  Open one site in one window or tab, then open another window or tab.  Do so with control n for new window or control t for new tab.  Open the other page in the new window or tab.
Use alt tab to move between windows if you are working with windows, and control tab if you are working with tabs.  Close a tab if you want to leave the other opened with control f4.  Close one window and leave the other opened with alt f4, the usual command to close a window.

Hi list need to run two browsers at the same time to do a radio show prep.  So I have tried edge to view a list of a billboard chart archive while using chrome to get some of the songs.  Well I got to the page Okay but to try to speed things up I tried boxing links using f7 every time I did it the cat got NVDA’s tongue I had to hit alt ctrl N to get it to talk.  Does edge not support that basic function in NVDA I really haven’t used edge much and the more I look at it the more I’m sure it’s a piece of crap. A pure rush job by Microsoft. So it looks like even crappier IE is going to have to be used.  And I don’t want to get firefox back in here now that the main reason I used it before was webvisum which is gone.  Can any on list suggest an alternative browser in addition to chrome that behaves itself and works well with NVDA?  It’s obvious edge ain’t so hot.

Acapela synth activation trouble

Dark Count
 

Hello.

I had to reinstall windows10 fresh and a fresh copy of NVDA.

Now my acapela voices do not work at all.

There is a main addon which is the engine that one instals first, then the addon which is the voice one wishes to use.

I try activating a new license, but I get a bunch of script errors and then an error saying cannot open dialog box.
I went searching the archives of the list and found a thread from 2016 with the exact issues, but no resolution on the list.


I uninstalled the engine add on and reinstalled it but the same problem persists and this

register.exe program keeps showing up with that dialog box error, or at times it will simply freeze and try to prevent me from rebooting the machine by telling me that register.exe is running.


I wanted to throw it out here just in case.

It is a new copy of windows10 1903, with a fresh copy of nvda 19.1.1.

If you found a way to work around this let me know please.


D C
p.s. acapela support is strangely silent when I contact them.

Unless two separate user IDs need to be logged in to the same site.  In which case one can open an incognito window for one of the sessions.

Every contemporary browser I know of shares all its "background data" like cache, etc., regardless of how many instances are open unless those instances other than the regular windows are incognito (Chrome) or Private, in which case they get dedicated storage completely separated from the regular browser window(s).

If one wants to use NVDA with Edge, at this juncture I'd strongly suggest doing so only with the dev channel Chromium-based Edge which has been much discussed recently.

You could just open up two tabs in Google Chrome. You can switch back-and-forth between them with control tab.

Add-on updater 19.07.3 will enable toast notifications on Windows 10 by default #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Add-on Updater 19.07.3 is on its way. The only difference between 19.07.2 and 19.07.3 concerns toast notifications on Windows 10 – it will now be enabled by default for all Windows 10 users. Note that this is still an experimental feature, and if things go well, it’ll become a permanent feature in version 19.08.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Thank you Sarah.  It's a very delicate balance here:  Someone puts out some initials without explanation and I have to decide, do I care to take time to go look it up; or maybe I'd be missing something important if I don't.  So, sometimes, I just ask the list.


Anyways, thank you for the answer.

NVDA addon: Developer toolkit 2019.1.2 now available!

Andy B.
 

Official release announcement

• Release announcement: https://github.com/ajborka/nvda_developer_toolkit/releases/tag/2019.1.2

• Direct download: https://github.com/ajborka/nvda_developer_toolkit/releases/download/2019.1.2/developerToolkit-2019.1.2.nvda-addon

• Repository: http://github.com/ajborka/nvda_developer_toolkit

• Mailing list: http://www.groups.io/g/nvda-developer-toolkit

 

Direct all feature requests and bug reports to the mailing list noted at the top of this announcement.

 

Developer toolkit (DTK) is an NVDA add-on that assists blind and visually impaired developers to independently create visually appealing user interfaces or web content. This is done by enabling DTK, navigating around the user interface or web content, then performing gestures to obtain information about the appearance, location, and size of the focused control. To enable or disable DTK, press alt+windows+k on your keyboard. To continue using the computer normally, disable DTK before performing normal tasks.

What's new?

• DTK will now report size and position values if they are 0.

• Navigation now honors the detailed messages setting.

• Made reporting of size/position information more concise.

• Stability improvements.

Gestures

The following gestures are available when DTK is enabled.

• Alt+windows+k – Enable or disable DTK features.

• Left arrow – Move to previous sibling.

• Right arrow – Move to next sibling.

• Up arrow – Move to parent.

• Down arrow – Move to first child.

• Control+home – Move to top-most parent.

• A – In web content, speak HTML attributes. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

• B – Speak the position of the object’s bottom edge. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

• C – Speak the number of children contained inside the object. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

• Control+d – Enable or disable detailed messages.

• F – In web content, speaks the object’s font and formatting information. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

• H – Speak the object’s height. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

• L – Speak the position of the object’s left edge. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

• R – Speak the position of the object’s right edge. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

• S – Speak the number of siblings relative to the object. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

• T – Speak the position of the object’s top edge. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

• V – Speak Developer toolkit version. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

• W – Speak the object’s width. Press twice quickly to copy to the clipboard.

Notes

• DTK helps developers create user interfaces. This add-on is not an analytical tool for third-party user interfaces.

• When using Chrome, not all web elements will appear in the accessibility tree. To force an element to appear in the accessibility tree, give it a title attribute.

• When using Firefox, phantom elements may appear in the accessibility tree. For example, a text frame may appear as a text block’s container. These phantom elements are a part of Mozilla’s implementation of the accessibility tree.

• Edge has not been completely tested. Therefore, anything reported by the add-on should be considered with care.

• In web content, everything except a text block is a container. For instance, a paragraph (p tag) may have multiple elements inside.

• div tags are reported as a section in HTML5.

• To avoid names of web elements appearing as "None", always give elements a title attribute.

• Font information is only available in web content. This should be fixed in a future version.

• The add-on does not teach a user proper user interface/web content design concepts.

Known issues

• Users are not automatically notified of the enabled/disabled state of the add-on's features when switching between windows.

• The margins of a control are only available in web content, and are browser dependent.

• The border and padding attributes are not available. This is a long-standing issue.

• There is no way to restrict DTK to a specific content type or application window.

• The font information when pressing F is messy, and will get fixed in a future version.

There are two SPL keys – SPL Assistant and SPL Controller. One would go to NVDA menu/Preferences/Input Gestures, locate StationPlaylist category, and assign commands from there.

The user guide for this add-on can be found here:

How do I assign a certain key to be the SPL key?

 

Also, is there more documentation than what is presented in the  Addon help?

 

Thanks in advance.

I will contact SPL to see if there is a trial copy of creator that you can get.

Hi,

I need a way to reproduce this and find out what NVDA needs to say. Currently I have suspended major developments on SPL add-on and others until NvDA is fully powered by Python 3 (more info coming soon).

Cheers,

Joseph

I looked through the list of commands but I could not find anything for Station playlist creator that would help when I need to propagate my playlist. I know how to push information to the playlist but I don’t know how much time is being used after every push.

Re: Push Notifications With NVDA

 

Brian and Vincent,
First of all, sorry for post to this topic again but this will be the last time. I'll be posting to the Chat Subgroup but before that, I just want to clear a few things up:

Vincent wrote:
It's possible Facebook just pushes notifications to a different system without much accessibility support besides reading. I guess you already checked the system tray (Windows + B)?
Yes, I did, so I'd agree with you. Probably it's not accessible but I'll be more than happy to be wrong on this at the end :)

Brian wrote:
if one is using Chrome it's possible to have the browser push those push messages straight over to Windows to be presented as toast notifications, or not.

So one has to know what browser is being used and whether certain features have been configured in certain ways to know for certain how one might directly interact with a push message.
Well, I'm  using Firefox, as I said on my first message, and apparently my version of Firefox doesn't allow these notifications to be presented as toast ones. I mean, is it possible that a toast notification doesn't show up in the Notifications Center? Because so far, every notification I got, I was able eiter to see it by pressing Win+Shift+V or if I wasn't fast enough to do it I could see the notification on the Center. So weren't they toast notifications? I'm confused.

Finally, I read the article on gHacks telling about these notifications (thanks, Vincent). Probably, the problem lies on my Firefox then. Because I was supposed to see it on the list of apps that can  or cannot send notifications and it's not there as an  option to check.

Well, with all of this said, I'm  moving it to the Chat Subgroup. I hope you guys will follow me and help me with it, as this is a cool feature and I really didn't want to miss it out.

Cheers,
Marcio AKA Starboy

Re: Problem Retrieving Ordered Material

Hi Chris,

As well as the PayPal receipt, you should have received an automatic email from us with the download links.  Once you log into your account, you should be able to go to downloads (note that's downloads in your account, not the download page for NVDA itself). That page is https://www.nvaccess.org/my-account/downloads/ and from there you should be able to download everything you have purchased.

Do let me know if you have any problems.

Kind regards

Quentin

Or might have NV Access (with a space) in it.
Perhaps try searching for those.

Re: Code Factory add-in for NVDA

 

For 60 us you can use the expressive ones from code factory, its all done in a program off the cloud, and its a nice package.

Its not the same as older vocalisers but its good enough.

Hi

I once had eloquence on my Android phone too. However it did not work very well and it cost $20. But the vocalizer voices are all right. Sadly I don’t have them on my Windows devices anymore.

Well the last was from enablerehab saying pay what you want, they need to send at least 50 cents to phonics because of their licences.

Now saying that that was for sapi.

As for the old dectalk, I usually wouldn't but it sounds like no one really cares that much.

Obviously if someone sold the entire load they probably would make something about it but its almost like, its to old for us to give a damn about as such.
To be honest the sapi dectalk wasn't perfect with volume dropouts on some voices I don't even use it anymore.

However if someone were to well distribute it, as long as no one brought it or payed cash, I don't think people would care that much.

Of course my communications with the deal were ages ago maybe if to many wanted it who knows.

Dectalk like eloquence are not really where we should be going as it is though.

Now don't get me wrong, they had their day, and their place.

In their day they were the best of the best.

I mean hawking used the thing.

Here's the thing.

I tried a 16 bit version of eloquence on my phone and it was total crap!

Theory is it was never designed to be upsampled.

Next eloquence and dectalk are utter crap.

Its not their fault.

I mean how much can you get out of a simple speaker with a few hardware chips without the voice quality and size we have now?

I mean they like the old keynotes were the king of the castle and were there for a number of years.

And as an old timer I respect the past.

I still use it on my old phone.

However their time may be about done.

I also wish we could get some confirmation about decTalk since it, too, is, or was, very popular. There is nothing wrong with the 24-year-old decTalk access32 dll files. they work fine aside from some bugs in the nvda-addon code, they work just fine with NVDA. I wish that we could 1. get official confirmation that is it abandonware, or is it not abandonware and can we use the 24-year-old decTalk access32 dll which is still perfectly fine with NVDA? 2. if somebody would give us permission to use that dll, which by the way again works perfectly fine, then once we have permission, we could incorporate it into NVDA as an alternative to ESpeak for english and maybe some other languages, same goes for willowPond softVoice tts, by the way... so anyway once we get confirmation, they could be incorporated into NVDA so people have some alternative voices. and also perhaps the voices could be given sapi5 interfaces for those who wish to use them in that form. oh better yet, if NVDA could sell decTalk nvda-addon and softVoice tts addon, decTalk sapi5 with a good non-buggy interface and softVoice tts sapi5 again with a good stable interface. I personally would gladly pay $10 to $20 or so for updated versions of those two tts engines. better yet would be if the authors just said well just go ahead and incorporate them into NVDA as voices or as voices on the extra-voices download website.
