Re: NVDA pronouncing "no" as "number" with some widgets but only with Microsoft synthesizers

 

Luke,

             [Nn][Oo]\.* (\d+) number \2 was a mistake with the \2, it should have been \1

I do not understand the need for the double backslashes in your:  ([Nn][Oo]\\.*)(?= *\\d+) as that means you are actually escaping the backslash. And running this through the Regex101.com engines confirms that. I get the "don't consume" bit, but try to avoid using that myself.

All of the above being said, I did a cut and past of your regular expression for the number abbreviation situation, and am still getting NVDA saying "No" for it.  Notepad file of test phrases is:

No, I won't go.
 
No no no
 
Chanel No. 5
 
Space no. 763
 
No. 7

---------------------------------------------
Something's off here.  I even still get the no pronunciation if I take those double backslashes out and use singles:

([Nn][Oo]\.*)(?= *\d+)

The Regex101 engines all show that matching the classic N O period abbreviation for number, but NVDA is not saying Number when that's used.

Hi everyone,

 

It's been 2 weeks since the 19.09 development version of the Clock

add-on has been released.

 

As no bug was reported during this period, I announce the release of the

stable version 19.09.

 

This version of the add-on is downloadable here, it is also available by

clicking on the stable version" link on the community website, as well

as with addonUpdater:

As announced earlier, this release fixes a bug that occurred when the

start time was greater than the end time in quiet hours.

 

Thanks.

 

Kind regards,

Quentin, I tried playing with, both of which were defined as regular expression without case sensitivity: [Nn][Oo]\.* (\d+) number \2
The most obvious problem, is that \2 should be \1. You only have one capturing subexpression, so \2 should be undefined.

That said:

Using source string:
This is no. 5 and No. 6. No it isn't!

pattern: ([Nn][Oo]\\.*)(?= *\\d+)
and replacement: number

Results in:
This is number 5 and number 6. No it isn't!

In Python, the (?=...) construct means "Match, but don't consume".

Note: tested at the python console with re.sub, not in NVDA directly.

[Nn][Oo](\s|$) NoThe above should cause any case combination of "no", optionally followed by a period, followed by a space, followed by one or more digits
to be announced as, "Number" followed by the number that is in the collection of digits.  That's the first line.The second should cause any case combination
of "no" followed by white space or where "no" is the only thing on the line to be announced as No.The problem is that the first line is not working, at
all.   If I have the line:Chanel No. 5
"Chanel number 5" with my expression above.

I would probably do your second pattern as:

[Nn][Oo](?!\.* *\d+)

Using that pattern, a replacement of "know", with this source string:
This is no no. 1, oh no!

Results in:
This is know no. 1, oh know!

And:

No. Way. This. is. No. 1!

Gets:
know. Way. This. is. No. 1!

Hth.

This is not a complex regular expression, and I know it has to match, but the substitution "Number \2" is not giving me either the word "number" or the digits, either.

Re: NVDA pronouncing "no" as "number" with some widgets but only with Microsoft synthesizers

Quentin Christensen
 

It's the Microsoft Synthesizer trying to be helpful and assume that "no" = "number".  The two actions I can suggest are:

1) Report it to Microsoft's Disability Answer Desk, and request their synths not make those assumptions.
2) You can use NVDA's speech dictionary to add an entry for "no" to try to prevent it.  It would be worth testing whether it is case sensitive (eg is "No" treated the same as "no", or "NO"), in which case you could make a entry to change "No" (whole words only) to "no".  Just remember if you are proof reading something and looking for missed capitals :)

Kind regards

Quentin.

I think what you've done is set one of your previous rows as the column headers - that would explain both why it is reading another number as you move, AND why it's not reading the cell headers you expect.  Either go back to the first cell with cell headers, and press NVDA+control+c twice quickly to remove the header,  OR press CONTROL+F3 to open the names manager, and remove any from the current worksheet with names like "ColumnTitle_d7cd3b3b417b4fcdbebe4c26720205cc"

When the sighted user activates the link for you, are you then able to navigate the dropdown list of options?

Also, can you simulate this behavior by going to one of the links, pressing nvda+numpadDivide, then pressing numpadDivide on its own? In other words: routing the mouse to the current nav object, then left clicking it?

NVDA pronouncing "no" as "number" with some widgets but only with Microsoft synthesizers

slugolicious@...
 

If a <select> element has "yes" and "no" options, "no" is pronounced as "number" when using any of the Microsoft synthesizers (Microsoft Speech API version 5, Microsoft Speech Platform, Windows OneCore voices).  It works ok with eSpeak. 

If you have "yes" and "no" as radio buttons or checkboxes, it's correctly pronounced as "no".

Sample code:
```
<select>
  <option>yes</option>
  <option>no</option>
</select>               

<select size=5>
  <option>yes</option>
  <option>no</option>
</select>               

<label>
  <input name="a1" type="radio">
  yes
</label>
<label>
  <input name="a1" type="radio">
  no
</label>

<label>
  <input type="checkbox">
  yes
</label>
<label>
  <input type="checkbox">

Subject: [nvda] links on web page

Running win 10 1903 and latest version2019.2 and google chrome.
I have a web page for my investments that has things that NVDA says are
links that I can't open.  I have tried hitting enter on them, used
insert f7 to get the elements list to activate the link and nothing
happens.  I have tried hitting insert space bar before hitting enter and
nothing happens.
If i get sighted help they can use a physical mouse to left click the
link which then opens a list of options similar to what a combo box
might do.  Any other ideas as how to deal with such a link?
Thanks




Re: Bluetooth problem

My add-on won't help here unfortunately - since it only works with audio devices.

I have experienced similar connectivity problems a while ago with my bluetooth headphones and it was resolved after installing new bluetooth drivers. Judging by the symptoms you're describing your problem indeed sounds like a driver issue. Disabling power saving options for bluetooth seems to be a reasonable thing to try, but if it doesn't help - update your drivers. You'd have to figure out the name of your bluetooth chip and find most recent drivers for it - this is what helped in my case.

Hi John,

I wonder if Tony Malykh's bluetooth audio addon might help. It is intended to stop the computer's blue tooth from going into standby for audio purposes, but I don't see why it wouldn't work for your Braille device's bluetooth connection too.

This is the web link:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/BluetoothAudio.en.html

And this, copied from the addon page, explains how it works:
"Most bluetooth devices enter standby mode after a few seconds of inactivity. That means that when NVDA starts speaking again, the first split second of sound will be lost. Bluetooth Audio add-on prevents bluetooth devices from entering standby mode by constantly playing a silent sound, that is inaudible to a human ear."

Hope it helps :)

In browse mode, when you are on the link, move the mouse to the link with numpad insert numpad star.  That is the key to the right of the numlock.  In other words, hold down numpad insert and press numpad star.
Then release both keys and left click with numpad star.
 
If you are using the laptop layout, someone can give you those commands.

Re: Bluetooth problem

 

John,

              What Bluetooth card do you have in your machine, and when were the device drivers last updated?   If it's an Intel card they have been churning out update after update for the last several years now and not supplying same to the computer OEMs or Microsoft in a timely manner.   There is a strong symbiotic relationship between device drivers and Windows 10 itself, so it's essential to keep both up to date.
