Hi.


I think you meant SAPI5 rather than HTML5.


Re: In-Process 31st July

Regarding changes made to the switching to NVDA from JAWS Wiki:
 
I have a few points and a question to the list regarding the content.
 
As far as the system tray information is concerned, I’m glad to see that the space bar eaquals left single click command is included.  But it is important to say that first letter navigation can be used in the system tray.  Those who use the JAWS system tray dialog are used to using first letter navigation in the list and they should know that the same is available when working with the system tray directly.
 
Concerning ribbons, the discussion of ribbons is so shortt that I think it will confuse and discourage people who aren’t familiar with working with ribbons and those who don’t use the JAWS virtual ribbons menus as well.  I think that it is much better to provide a link to resources to learn about ribbons such as my tutorial, its short and to the point and very clear with learn by doing examples, and links to resources, done by others. 
 
I would have no objection to a comment such as, using ribbons is similar to using menus except that you tab and shift tab to move through a ribbon.  Then you might say something like of course there is more to learn but that is the essence of how you move through ribbons.  Then you would recommend resources.  Or, if you don’t want to give specific information, you might say something like try one or more of these resources for learning ribbons.  You may be pleasantly surprised how much easier they are than you may have believed.  I’ll send you a link to my ribbons tutorial ikf you wish. 
 
Regarding Eloquence, why is the HTML5 version not mentioned?  I don’t know if the add-on works properly now and my question to the list is, does it still have the very annoying almost constant crackling artifacts it used to have?  If it does, that is another reason to mention the HTML5 version.  Those wishing to use Eloquence in more than just NVDA should be aware that an HTML5 version exists.  I don’t think the HTML5 version is discussed on the extra voices page so this would have to be coordinated.

Re: Character Information: What a godsend!

Hello all

I echo those sentiments. I also read a lot of linguistics-related material, but I am also in the process of creating a new translation table for LibLouis for my language and this add-on is absolutely invaluable for reading Unicode braille characters. I don't know how I would have managed it without the add-on. A million thanks for it and also to the author of the Unicode braille input add-on which is a miracle.

Kind regards

Christo

Re: Character Information: What a godsend!

Quentin Christensen
 

Glad to hear you found Cyrille's add-on and it's working well Ben!

For anyone wondering, here is the link to the add-on: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/charInfo.en.html

The add-ons page is regularly updated with new and interesting add-ons.  So, if you haven't checked it out lately, I'd encourage you to do so: https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html

Also, if you're a bit more adventurous, the site has a page of "add-ons under development".  These add-ons are currently being worked on and may or may not be completely polished, but may have new functionality you haven't seen elsewhere, and if you are interested, your feedback can help the developer of the add-on to iron out any kinks: https://addons.nvda-project.org/dev.en.html

Regards

Quentin.

this makes sense, because they want to assess the results over a long time period in a regular way and the results should be comparable to last years in order to see where the trend is going.

Re: NVDA remote

Jonathan COHN
 

I have seen this happen when an addon is not completely installed. I ended up going to the

%appdata%\nvda\ directory and finding the semi-installed addon and deleting it. I wonder if there is an enhancement request to clean out or ask the user if they want to re-install such components.
