32 vs 64 bit.

erik burggraaf <erik@...>
 

Hi all, someone is just sent me a question to which I should know the answer but find that I don't. They are looking for a full 64 bit compiled nvda. now it seems to me that nvda has been distributed as full 64-bit for almost a year now.. am I incorrect in thinking this? I was under the impression that development had gone completely into Python 3, that Windows XP support had been dropped, and that the system was being compiled in full 64-bit.

at least, I am positive I have seen discussion of these things on the list, but can't remember the details.

Thanks, Erik

The delay addon basically does that. When you arrow to a letter it will announce the letter then the phonetic.

Suggestion, can ther be a way to lock thekey so that when you just left and right arrow the device will read alpha bravo etc? My mac can I believe do this, and I find sometimes that helps.

The add-on is well documented. If you go to the NVDA Tools menu, open Add-on

Manager, select that add-on, and hit the "about" button, you will be able to

read the instructions for use.

 

In short, any command that reads a single character, will now read that

character, followed by a short delay, and the phonetic name for that character.

So numpad 2, the left/right arrow keys, etc.

Hi Giles,
My guess here is it's a simple case of the tone is being generated slower than it takes for the progress bar to jump from one value to another. This usually happens on intensive tasks, which will of course slow down other processes, including NVDA. I get a similar result (though not half as bad) if I use GoldWave's batch processing. Having said that, strangely enough, I also get it if I configure NVDA to use a different audio device, which is only rectified when I save the configuration and restart NVDA so it is initially working through that device.

Hi all,

This isn't a life or death question, I'm just curious about why the sound of the file download progress beep might be behaving strangely on this one particular service. It also may only be the case on the laptop I'm writing this on because my usual laptop has been taken away for repair after a drop.

This is happening with downloads of audiobooks through the RNIB Overdrive service. Each book comes in a varying number of mp3 files, depending on how long the book is. The first second or two of each mp3 download beeps to indicate progress ... I like to hear the beeps and know I could turn them off if I wished ... but after two seconds the beep sounds like it has got a puncture!

I made a recording of one such download,  occasionally ALT+Tabbing between Overdrive and Audacity to demonstrate that the propper beep does return, again for a couple of seconds before returning to the punctured sound. As far as I'm aware this effect doesn't happen on other website downloads, but then again I have a decent download speed so it's rare that I need to download files that take more than a couple of seconds.

This is the mp3 recording I made of the download:
http://gilesturnbullpoet.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/overdrive-downloading.mp3

Just to mention, this happens with two different SAPI5 voices, using Zira in the recording but same effect with Hazel.

Any thoughts very welcome. I'm using NVDA 2019.2, Windows 10 Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.356) and Overdrive version 3.6.0.0

Hi,

 

I have been using ESET for a long time, but have not had great success. JAWS is a bit better, but not great.

I have had tech support remote in to my computer and check that all the settings are correct.

 

I think every time we contact support we should nag about accessibility. Also, informing them about NVDA and Narrator would be good.

Hi good people:
I don't know how to use OCR to extract text from an image. When I get
an attachment in PDF format, and I have to open it, in many cases, I
cannot go through it, because, I am sometimes told that the material
is a scanned image which might need OCR, or it is a an empty document.
Some times I hear the name of the document read, and the sentence
Adobe acrobat reader, not responding.
I have OCR on my computer, but I just don't know how to use it to
perform this task, that is getting such a material read.
Hope you understand my problem.

MathPlayer is free and MathType has a free and a paid version - the free version is suitable for NVDA's needs.

Just to clarify free version of MathType is sufficient if you want to read MathML equations in Word, however if you want to create equations after 30 days trial ended you have to purchase it.

The addon is working well for me. This is better than having to hit a key.

The add-on is well documented. If you go to the NVDA Tools menu, open Add-on

Manager, select that add-on, and hit the "about" button, you will be able to

read the instructions for use.

 

In short, any command that reads a single character, will now read that

character, followed by a short delay, and the phonetic name for that character.

So numpad 2, the left/right arrow keys, etc.
