Re: CodeFactory vocalizer licenses

Maybe jaws does not have good sapi5 support? Both NVDA and Jim Kitchen's games from the audio games archive work fine and the voices do not crash at all. Maybe the sapi5 interface for jaws has bugs that make it crash?

I have not used the dictionary yet, so I don't know where the dictionary file is found in order to import it into other codeFactory products. 


Changing Braille symbols

Vincent Le Goff <vincent.legoff.srs@...>
 

Hi everyone,


I'm using only Braille with NVDA, can't hear the speech synthesizer in a meaningful way.  The braille tables are handled by liblouis but I always find myself changing some symbols: the one for tab which I always replace (but not to replace it with spaces, I'm coding in Python and need to see the difference).  I'm using the French braille tables and both 8 and 6 dot definition imports a common braille table in which some symbols are defined. These definitions don't make sense for computer 8, so I tend to change some of them, particularly symbols that are defined on multiple cells.


To my dismay, I realized manually editing the .cti file didn't work anymore in NVDA.  Whether that's purposeful or not, I do not know, NVDA refuses to start (or at least, the Braille refuses to start) if I modify the file, even if my modifications are correct.  If there's an error in the log, I cannot tell.  So I had to install NVDA again to get rid of the issue... and lose my modifications in the Braille tables.  Is there any "recommended" way to do what I want to do?  Relying as heavily on Braille symbols, I would really like to have control over them.


Thanks!


Vincent

Hello!

For that, you have to use an add-on named NVDA NVDAExtensionGlobalPlugin, found on:

Re: 2019.2 rc2 continues to double reading treeview itens in eclipse

Hi Quentin!
I reported this problem when I tested betas of 2019.2. 
I am using spring tool 4. I don”t know what’ eclipse version it is based in
I suspect this problem returns with recent windows updatees becousr even 2018.4 shows the same problem  
It was resolved at the time the issue was closed. 
Now it is back again.

Just since you said "continues", have you reported this before?  I had a look on our issue tracker, and found one issue which looks quite similar (treeviews, but with checkboxes read twice), closed (fixed) back in 2015.

Did it start with a particular version of NVDA?

Also, which version of Eclipse are you using?  It looks like the newest is 2019-06.

I just tried an experiment.  I made a speech dictionary entry for down arrow, writeen in just that way down space arrow and in the pronunciation field, I placed a space.  it worked.  You will have to make dictionary entries for any keys you don't want spoken.  But I don't think you should make one for tab.  there are times when tab is spoken in multipage dialogs such as general, advanced, etc.
 
You will have to make many entries, for example control home, control end, right arrow left arrow, whatever you don't want spoken.

Re: Mathematics in Microsoft Word

 

The ability for NVDA to natively support reading and interacting with equations created with Microsoft Equation Editor would be great, as this would eliminate the need for, let's say, teachers to create a specialized version of math materials that uses Latex/MathType equations just for someone who relies on NVDA.

Re: how to build add-ons for NVDA

Andy B.
 

The last I knew, you had to obtain an API key from Blackboard to use their APIs. I checked into this a few years ago because a professor wanted me to do something similar. Blackboard’s response was that I needed to have administrator privileges to the Blackboard install assigned to my school. Since I couldn’t get that, nothing resulted because I was only listed in Blackboard as a student. You can download your assignments, but not grades. The best I can say is to keep a spreadsheet of your grades.

Re: Creating First Line Indent with NVDA

Bianka Brankovic
 

Hi David and list,

 

I just tested with MS Word 2013. I created two paragraphs with a first line indent of 1.25 cm. NVDA told me the exact formatting of the text when I used Insert+f to review the formatting.  

 

As for your 2nd question: Brian is right, consistency is the key here. It’s just good editing practice to define as much of the layout in the document template and to do the finetuning manually later on. This way, it will be easier for your text to be processed by the different types of software used in the publishing process.

 

Hth

 

Kind regards,

Re: NVDA 2019.3 and CodeFactory eloquence vocalizer addon?

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Hi Josh.

Due to the fact that in 2019.3 python3 will be used, I am thinking
about, before I update to 2019.3, right beforehand, that I will first
deactivate my CodeFactory NVDA addon license, and then update, and
then if it still shows up, I will re-activate the license. I'm
worried that the update may remove an activation of my license for the
CodeFactory eloquence vocalizer addon, or may cause it to stop working
completely. In that case it would be good just to deactivate it, and
switch to sapi5 eloquence until the addon is updated.
Josh
I think that precaution is unnecessary, since your Vocalizer license will still be installed on your machine. Deactivation and reactivation seem to be only required if you need to input your license key because you've reformatted your hard drive or reinstalled Vocalizer.
Now, what's this nonsense of no pronunciation dictionary file anywhere? I've even searched thee registry to no avail.
