Re: Equalizer APO

Hi Jaffar! 

 

Are the bleeps loud and sharp like  something’s happening with the speakers?  Is it less likely with the Windows One Core voices which I love?  I prefer Mark.  Since he’s a little less synthetic sounding, I thought that might not be quite as much an issue as with more computerized sounding  synths like eloquence and ESpeak.  I just don’t want to damage my speakers.  That’s my main concern.  I’ll be messing with something I’ve never used so I wanna be careful.

Go to the "advanced" tab under display. Tab a couple times, and you will see the option as to how to open messages. The second radio button is the one that should be checked. It will open messages in their own window. Hope that helps.

Re: Identifying capital letters

 

Giles,

            Yes, that regex pattern is definitely "the bomb" for finding the sort of issue you wish to find.  It took me a while to parse it apart to understand it in its entirety; I'm a bit rusty these days.   Now that Windows 10 has PowerShell, you could even use it in conjunction with the grep (short for get regular expression and print) command to have specific lines where the issue is found produced so that you can easily search for those lines.   The thing I don't know is whether you can actually run grep against a .docx document or if you'd need to save a plain text or rich text format version of the file for processing.

             In any case, even if there is an intermediate step, you can use this method to quickly identify the vast majority of instances of uncapitalized sentence starts, capital letters embedded inside words, or capital letters on words within sentences where they'd typically not be.

I agree Brian ... mind you my dissertation is in poetry so doesn't necessarily folow the same grammar rules as prose. I do have a friendly proof reader and will be running it by her before submission, but I wanted to try to iron out those errant capitals if I could.

The regular expression search is useable, since I know when it flags capitals that are not preceded by a full stop whether it is corect to do so :)

Re: win10 addon update

 

Yeah, another one, this time I got hit with it.

Why do they ignore their userbase when they set it up in the first place.

I have just reformat to make the issue go away, if they continue botching up, well I am not leaving, but I don't know if unless you needed to if I would recommend things right now, because things have not been as pollished as I'd like in 1903.

The shell for example likes to crash enough on folder access to notice.

This latest search thing got me really fuming.

But I guess thats microsoft.

So I guess more reformats to get things to become stable only to get another botchup.

Sometimes I laugh at these but its different when its your behind on the line.

Re: Equalizer APO

Jaffar Sidek
 

Hi.  Tried it with Jaws and NVDA, and I must say NVDA is slightly ahead in accessing the interface.  From my initial findings, it is not good with speech synthesizers because there are bleeps when, for example eloquence is speaking, especially when you are previewing text with the arrow keys.  Good for music and audio played through third party apps like Winamp or Groove music though.  I am still experimenting.  Will come up with something in a bit.  Cheers!

Hi Robert,

In fact, when you enter your start and end times, whether in 12-hour or 24-hour format, you enter only one string.

It is only then that the time entered is converted into real time format and the comparison is made.

Can you confirm that the bug is fixed, or do you still have a problem when the start time is greater than the end time?

Regarding your clock chimes, you are welcome.

Thanks.

Hi everybody,

 

I am Abdel, a collaborator for the add-on Clock and calendar.

 

Someone reported the following bug when using quiet hours:

 

If the start time is greater than the end time, the duration of the

quiet hours does not arrive until the end time.

 

In principle, it must be the next day that must be automatically chosen

through an internal code.

 

This code is in the timeInRange function, defined in the dtfunctions module.

 

This function has been corrected as follows, to fix the bug:

 

> def timeInRange(startTime, endTime, checkTime, use24hour=False):

>     """

>     A function that can be used to check whether the time range

> received as a parameter does not match a specific time.

>     @param startTime: The start time in the range.

>     @type startTime: basestring.

>     @param endTime: The end time in the range.

>     @type endTime: basestring.

>     @param checkTime: The time that will allow for the verification.

>     @type checkTime: basestring.

>     @param use24hour: optional: A boolean to determine whether the

> specified times format are 24-hour format or not.

>     @type use24hours: boolean.

>     @returns: A Boolean corresponding to the verification.

>     @rtype: boolean.

>     """

>     start=parseTime(startTime, use24hour)

>     end=parseTime(endTime, use24hour)

>     check=parseTime(checkTime, use24hour)

>     if end<start:

>         end+=timedelta(days=1)

>         if check < start:

>             check+=timedelta(days=1)

>     return start<=check<end

 

 

The 19.09-dev version of the add-on is downloadable here, it is also

available by clicking on the "development version" link on the community

site, as well as with addonUpdater, in the dev channel:

 

> http://cyber25.free.fr/nvda-addons/clock-19.09-dev.nvda-addon

 

 

It will remain in development version during a period of 2 weeks.

 

Thanks in advance for confirming me if the bug persists or not.

 

Kind regards,

Abdel.
