Re: Setting global speech rate across various profiles

 

Andre,
Why not just press NVDA+Shift+R when you realise the rate is too slow? This would revert the last saved settings.
Actually, the command is CTRL+NVDA+R. Just a slightly correction :)

Hi.

Thanks for the clarification. The problem I have is that because I accidentally changed the rate whilst in excel, NVDA no longer seems to respect the global setting so in your example if I go to firefox which is using the normal profile and change the rate, my speech rate changes no longer apply to excel. I have to adjust the rate when I go back in to excel and this would also apply to other custom settings. To keep things simple, I think the option to have settings apply across the board would be easier to deal with. In jaws for example, the behaviour is that any changes you make via keyboard shortcuts to adjust speech rate apply globally. But if you manually go in to jaws settings for a specific app and change things via the settings dialogues, then those changes apply to that specific app only. Perhaps an option could be introduced which allows you to enable global changes via shortcuts to apply across the board, but if someone wants specific settings they have to go in to the settings dialogue to change the settings permanently? Either that or a priority system could be introduced for profiles where various aspects of settings can be given priority based on the global settings. So for example if the global speech settings have a priority of 1 for excel but I set excel's priority to 2, NVDA would respect my global preferences for a given settings category first. Of course if someone has a way I can revert a certain aspect of excel's settings such as the speech rate instead of me deleting the profile and starting over, please let me know. That would also solve the problem. As things stand, because i accidentally changed my speech rate I have to delete the excel profile and start over, being careful not to change my speech rate or voice settings whilst in excel.

Cheers,,

Mo.

So if I have a profile for Excel, and my normal profile I use for everything else, if I change the speech rate while in Excel, it will ONLY affect the speech rate while Excel, and when I go to Firefox, the speech rate will go revert.  If instead, I change the speech rate in Firefox, then the new rate will work in Firefox and Excel.  So, if you change the speech rate while using the "normal" profile, and you haven't changed it while using any other programs with their own rates set, then yes it will work everywhere.

 

There isn't a way that will let you have configuration profiles for different apps to save SOME settings, but not speech rate.  So, the other question perhaps is, which is more important to you: being able to adjust the speech rate at any point and have it apply across the board?  OR having the current restriction on "global" speech rate changes, but being able to set other NVDA settings on a per-program basis?

Help: NVDA bug with Java GUI Applications

Ravi Pinapaka
 

Hello, 

When I create and run a Java GUI application using frames in Eclipse, NVDA doesn’t read anything in the screen. It properly reads the objects when I hover the mouse over the components and it announces all the objects when I press NVDA+B. However there’s no speech at all while navigating with the keyboard.

 

I’m sure it’s a problem with NVDA and not my code or the java access bridge because my application works fine with the Jaws screen reader.

Any ideas on how to fix it? I’m more comfortable with NVDA rather than Jaws and will be grateful if someone helps me to fix this issue.

 

Here is my entire NVDA log including the error for reference:

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

Concerning ribbons, the discussion of ribbons is so shortt that I think

I
think that it is much better to provide a link to resources to learn

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

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

That isn't appropriate.  the document is for helping with the transition from JAWS to NVDA.  It would be just as inappropriate to reproduce the NVDA add-ons page in the document.  the document briefly discusses aspects of the change and provides useful resources.  This is a resource.  All the reader has to do is follow the link and download the document. 
 
Other resources may be added over time but reproducing the content would be impractical.

Re: Setting global speech rate across various profiles

Quentin Christensen
 

When you create a profile for a program, it saves only those changes to settings you make while that program is active.

So if I have a profile for Excel, and my normal profile I use for everything else, if I change the speech rate while in Excel, it will ONLY affect the speech rate while Excel, and when I go to Firefox, the speech rate will go revert.  If instead, I change the speech rate in Firefox, then the new rate will work in Firefox and Excel.  So, if you change the speech rate while using the "normal" profile, and you haven't changed it while using any other programs with their own rates set, then yes it will work everywhere.

There isn't a way that will let you have configuration profiles for different apps to save SOME settings, but not speech rate.  So, the other question perhaps is, which is more important to you: being able to adjust the speech rate at any point and have it apply across the board?  OR having the current restriction on "global" speech rate changes, but being able to set other NVDA settings on a per-program basis?

Hello Everyone.

     I am using NVDA with different profiles for various programs. I am
wondering if there is any way to get NVDA to respect the global speech
rate I have set as I switch between programs? The speech rate is
something I'm not really interested in customising on a per program
basis. At the moment, if I slow the speech rate down then go in to excel
for example, the last speech rate that was set in relation to my excel
profile is loaded. I can see how this would be useful for some but I
would like the option of using the global setting per profile for
certain items if possible. Any replies are much appreciated.

Thanks for reading,

Mo.

Hi Gene,


Good point re the system tray. I'll update that next time I'm looking at
the page, but feel free to go ahead and edit it yourself if you get to it
first. Editing that bit about ribbons and including the link to your
tutorial would also be great - I must admit, I sat down to edit that page
yesterday thinking I'd just need to add a paragraph here and there, and then
I got to the virtual ribbons thing and realised it really needed a lot more
work.


Re Eloquence, I must admit, I didn't really touch that section. Not sure
whether the SAPI 5 version wasn't available when that part was originally
written, or maybe whoever wrote that part initially had (or knew about) the
other version, but again, happy for that to be added in.


Regards


Quentin.

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.

Hi.

Why not just press NVDA+Shift+R when you realise the rate is too slow? This would revert the last saved settings.


Re: trouble with NVDA Menu and content being correctly formatted on web pages

Gene
 

I doubt it.  I think you don't have the notification area set to show all icons.  I don't know enough about the notification area in Windows 10, which I suspect you are using to discuss how it is done.  Or there is a way to have it show NVDA and show what it was showing before, not all icons, if you wish.  others can discuss that. 
 
It appears from your message that there are very specific contexts in which the menu won't open.  We'll see what the log shows.  This sounds like a Windows problem to me.

When you say you can't access the NVDA menu, can you use other NVDA commands - eg if you press NVDA+F12 does it read the time?  If not, it would indicate an issue with your NVDA key (whether it's set to caps lock and you're trying insert or vice-versa, or a key, maybe N, isn't working or stuck down, etc).  If you can read the time, does NVDA give you an error or beep when you try to open the menu?  In your %temp% folder there should be an nvda.log file which is the log from either the current NVDA session or most recent session (if it is not currently running), and nvda-old.log which is from the time before that.  If you could send me a copy of that log to info@... I can have a look and see if it offers anything.

Otherwise, which version of NVDA are you using? and have you tried another version (eg try both NVDA 2019.1.1 https://www.nvaccess.org/download and NVDA 2019.2rc1 https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2019-2rc1-released/ )

Quentin,


I just tried the time for example and it continues to work as expected. I also tried the menu keystroke in a couple of different places.  It does not work on the desktop but if in a document the nvda menu key stroke will work.  There is no beep or erro associated with this on my side.  I'll also send you that log as well. Please expect it later this evening or in the morning.

4.  I installed NVDA, JAWS and Openbook back and the problem still exists.


I wonder if there are other places I should look for any other settings.

Hi Gene,

Good point re the system tray.  I'll update that next time I'm looking at the page, but feel free to go ahead and edit it yourself if you get to it first.  Editing that bit about ribbons and including the link to your tutorial would also be great - I must admit, I sat down to edit that page yesterday thinking I'd just need to add a paragraph here and there, and then I got to the virtual ribbons thing and realised it really needed a lot more work.

Re Eloquence, I must admit, I didn't really touch that section.  Not sure whether the SAPI 5 version wasn't available when that part was originally written, or maybe whoever wrote that part initially had (or knew about) the other version, but again, happy for that to be added in.

Regards

Quentin.

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: Is there a way to set NVDA 2019.2-RC1 to exit focus mode in Skype?

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


Which version of skype?


There is the app version for windows 10 there is a desk top version both skype 7 and 8 which is more like a web page in 8.


There is also a web version that can be used in a browser.


I was just looking through some of the whats new in nvda 2019.2 and come across the following.


• You can now disable browse mode by default by disabling the new "Enable browse mode on page load" option in NVDA's browse mode settings. (#8716)
◦ Note that when this option is disabled, you can still enable browse mode manually by pressing NVDA+space.

So I asked about this Skype issue and Joseph was right. If you hit NVDA-space, it takes NVDA out of focus mode and you can arrow through Skype controls as usual. What's interesting is that it seems to be preserved until restart. That is, when I first get into Skype I have to hit NVDA-space, but once I've done that, it's set until I restart NVDA, even if I close Skype and re-open it again, well, make it minimize to the system tray or whatever it does.


So is there a way to set NVDA to not be in focus mode when I open Skype? I don't know what changed between 2019.1 and 2019.2 so I don't know what setting change(s) to make, or if it's even possible.

Setting global speech rate across various profiles

Mobeen Iqbal
 

Hello Everyone.

    I am using NVDA with different profiles for various programs. I am wondering if there is any way to get NVDA to respect the global speech rate I have set as I switch between programs? The speech rate is something I'm not really interested in customising on a per program basis. At the moment, if I slow the speech rate down then go in to excel for example, the last speech rate that was set in relation to my excel profile is loaded. I can see how this would be useful for some but I would like the option of using the global setting per profile for certain items if possible. Any replies are much appreciated.

Thanks for reading,

Mo.
