Re: Progress beep

Dark Count
 

Press NVDA U untill you hear no progress bar updates.

It is a cycle command so if you keep pressing it it will eventually circle to the setting where you started.

Re: begin and end links with braille display

David Csercsics
 

I prefer the Jaws dots 7 and 8 approach though I can usually tell where a link is from context, but also NVDA has a lot of weird indicators in places it shouldn't especially when using UEB. I'm pretty sure that some of these are LinLouis bugs, though and so I'm not sure what NVDA can do about them. What I don't understand is why 3 screen readers display the same braille slightly differently in some instances, when everyone is supposedly using the same libraries and the same braille tables. I can't imagine only having a 6-dot display though, as one of the things I like is the computer braille code, if I want to look at code. Or if I want to see how something is spelled because a translation table looks weird. How does the Braille Me handle things like that? If you have routing buttons, you could just click the one next to the lnk and that should get you focused on the link. Of course that doesn't work for things like Orbit Reader that have no routing buttons. I don't mind the lnk myself, as I rarely need to know exactly what's linked text from beginning to end, but MAYBE THIS IS TROUBLING FOR WEB DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING POSSIBLY, BUT i AM NOT SURE WHAT'S A GOOD SOLUTION. I usually use NVDA, just because it seems to be fairly responsive and isn't massively bloated and does what I need to do, but we should catalogue things we like and dislike from other products, just so everyone has the customizations they need. I don't know how narrator indicates links, as I prefer to work without speech and so I don't like having to twiddle braille drivers on and off, as that's very inconvenient, but I could check it.

brltty and nvda and orbit reader?

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

 

I installed BRLTTY on android because I heard it has better accessibility than brailleback, and they are right. It does. BRLTTY autodetected the orbit reader. And it supports Japanese.

I hav some issues.

1. I cannot change the braille table to UEB grade2. When I select it, nothing changes.

2. for BRLTTY?

I try typing and it says wrong3. d selected. I went into languages and input, changed it to brltty keyboard and still when I try typing my phone berd and still when I try typing my phone beeps and I get an wrong input error on the display.

Can you please document how to use BRLTTY for android?

I also tried using BRLTTY with NVDA in windows 10 32bit. I chose autodetect, USB-bluetooth and hit OK. It also askd if I want to install some sort of drivers and I just said yes. I then chose BRLTTY under NVDA braille display and I get no braille output. BRLTTY will let me read Japanese braille if it is in the katakana alphabet. How do I fix this so I can get braille output from NVDA with brltty on orbit reader and also choose the right NVDA braille table from within NVDA itself and then how do I tell brltty to use its own table, like Japanese or ueb grade2?

The context key is also called the application key.
If you want to fill in login info use the application key when in edit
mode in the user id or password field, and look for the lastpass entry
in the context menu.

You can also generate a password by using the application key while in
edit mode for a password text box.

You can also get to the extension by using object navigation. Use F6 to get
to the address bar. Then use NVDA+NUmPad6 to move to the next object until
you find the "extensions grouping".
Use NVDA+NumPad2 to move into the grouping Then use NVDA+NUmPad6 to move to
the next item until you find the lastpass object.
Then use NVDA+NumPadEnter to activate the lastpass object.

That all said, most of the time the context menu is a much easier/faster way
of accessing lastpass functionality in the browser.

Thanks Marsio.

I found apost on the archives from Steven Nut who mentioned acapela had this settings but sadly he did not report where they were to be found.

I am wondering if there is a dictionary somewhere or a config file in the innereds of NVDA one could change values in.

Re: NVDA, beyond screen reading

Curtis Delzer
 

fantastic paper, and message, which I am keeping.

All I'd add is that not only reaper, (with peepers" is great, but if you need other solutions for audio which are very speech friendly, 4 other packages come to mind.

 From the American printing house, their house recorder is called "studio recorder," which has "audible peak meters" for audio input, all menus are accessible,

Gold Wave which I am sure most folks know about, a rather jack-of-all-trades simple editor,

Sound Forge which can do much with keyboard commands into about all functions,

and certainly not least for last in my recommendations is audacity, which is free but full of functional promise.

About any package depends on commitment to learn properly, and none are free but audacity, so there is that consideration too, but it is the joy of what you can accomplish, which is the fulfillment the author of this paper is talking about, which strikes me as the thing. With the help of NVDA, where is the limit?

As in musical talent come to fruition, as they do to accomplish Carnegie hall, practice, practice, practice. :)

And as one of my favorite comics always says, "never give up, never give up, never give up. Truly!

Hi all. All of us use NVDA extensively for those basic computer tasks like emailing, word processing, surfing the web and so on. But there are some of you I'm sure who would like to do more with your pcs, in company with NVDA.  I'm sure that there are some among you, for example who would like to branch out, into something else you are really good at and make a decent living out of it.  like making music? music production? or programming? and why not?  NVDA has come a long way since it started way back years ago.  No more is it a screen reader that plays second fiddle to the more established JFW.  Window eyes has come and gone, unjustly consigned to the whims of Father Time.  But with the undaunting efforts of the main developers and the community, NVDA is now a formidable tool that can be employed for more serious pursuits like Music production and Computer Programming.  I want to concentrate however on music making because there are a lot of talented blind folks who would like to make music, perhaps as a hobby or as a form of livelihood but do not know how to go about it, and In particular, i want to sportlight Reaper, a most versatile Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), which also allows for MIDI recording..


You can get Reaper from its website,

http://reaper.fm/download.php

or download it here and install it as a fully functional trial,

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zpw1xyen2ynbeay/reaper5981_x64-install.exe?dl=1

Then download and install Osara, an NVDA extension which enhances NVDA's capability to almost fully access the Reaper application.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zpw1xyen2ynbeay/reaper5981_x64-install.exe?dl=1

You have now got a computer which also acts as a music work station, allowing you to record and edit midi, as well as record and edit audio.  How cool is that?

As a demo to put forward my point, here's a piece of music I wrote for a school's music educational program and was paid for it.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/0xcy5lhusgftiff/Kangaroo%20Playtime.mp3?dl=0

The music is not put here to show of my limited skill but rather to show you what you can do if you venture to use NVDA as broadly as you can and not limit it's limitless capabilities.

Now having turned your pc into a music work Station, Consult the Reaper wiki, at https://reaperaccessibility.com/index.php/Main_Page and go make music.  You can also join the reaper mailing list for help and questions.  The address is listed on the wiki.


This is part  of a paper on Computer accessibility I was invited to present by our local I T government department to a group of blind and sighted university students a week ago.  I only included the music part of the presentation here as many blind people want to make something out of their music talent but don't know how. Hope the moderators won't mind.  Cheers!

Re: begin and end links with braille display

Using a Braille display, what does NVDA do when use screen layout if supported is turned off?  Do linkks all appear on their own lines?  I don't use a Braille display but your notation sounds cluttered to me.

jaws uses dots 7 and 8 to underline links. But this is not practical if using a six-dot-only display such as the braille me. I recommend instead begin the link with dots 1-2-3-4-5-6, lnk, and end the link with two full cells or dots 1-2-3-4-5-6, 1-2-3-4-5-6.

Re: code factory voices addon

Josh Kennedy
 

not sure. I hope so. But I just bought both codeFactory eloquence vocalizer nvda-addon license, and vocalizer sapi5 license, and I am patiently waiting for my license keys to arrive. I already own two sapi5 eloquence keys, and I back up my important order information onto google drive so I do not lose it. I bought sapi5 vocalizer so I can have some good voices for audio games. But I am on a tablet with limited storage so when I install vocalizer voices I will install the smaller voices which are about 60mb per voice, rather than the full voice which is around 300mb per voice.

Interestingly enough, that autohotkey script is working here under Windows 10. For some reason it doesn't work for you, so I came up with something else.

I wrote an addon that makes NVDA think sticky keys is enabled, which triggers the code that gives you a sticky modifier key, and only affects NVDA.

Download this addon and install it. Once done, whatever keys you have checked as modifiers in keyboard settings will stick for one press.
You should then be able to tell EZ Keys to press caps lock or insert, then press t to read the window title. NVDA should beep when you press the modifier.

I remapped the ` key simply because it is essentially available. When I trigger the ` key, I get the ToolTip showing "Insert key is Down." And triggering again, the ToolTip will show "Insert key is Up." But when I load NVDA and then trigger the ` key, the ToolTip always shows "Insert key is up." In other words, with NVDA loaded, the autohotkeys script no longer toggles holding down the Insert key.

Thanks for the continued help with this...

Questions:
1. Does EZ Keys let you press caps lock or insert, just not hold them down?
If it does, Windows sticky keys will work with NVDA to hold down the modifier.
2. Does it let you hold down any other keys? If so, I've got an addon somewhere which should be easily modifiable to let you do that.
As an example, does it give you the ability to hold down left alt or right alt independently? If so, you could use one for an alt key and the other for an NVDA modifier.
If none of these ideas will work, what does it let you do?
Make sure that, when you're testing your autohotkey script, you have "Handle keys from other applications" checked in NVDA's keyboard settings. If you don't, then NVDA won't see the injected key.
If you send that script, I might be able to test over here and figure out what breaks. Using it with a keyboard should also have the same problem.

please shairing idea about nvda adding dictionary

aikeo koomanivong
 

Hi all NVDA users

I’m KEO from Lao PDR

Today just would like to ask about editing NVDA dictionary idea from you guys

It’s not good to do but just for work purposes

I’m using NVDA with vocalizer and using English Thai

I’m trying to adding NVDA dictionary for Lao character by replaced with Thai character

Thai and Lao based on similar spoken, similar language character and similar spelling but difference on fonts Unicode.

For my results, it was good result but I still facing some issues such as:

  1. NVDA doesn’t spoke out character by character while typing or pressing arrows key but it speak when reading word by word or line by line.
  2. Sometime Thai and Lao difference on spelling and I was try to edit word by word in the NVDA dictionary but it didn’t work.

 

There are Default dictionary.., Temporary dictionary.. and Temporary dictionary.. but most I worked with default dictionary

 

So just simple questions, do you have any idea about these issues

Regards

KEO
