Hi

Once you have set a location, the most frequently used commands are

NVDA+w to read todays forecast

NVDA+Shift+w to read forecast for up to the next 9 days

 

If you try pressing NVDA+w and you get an error saying the WOE Id is missing, you need to set a location, as follows:

 

1. Open the NVDA menu using NVDA+n

2. Press the letter p to open the preferences sub-menu

3. Press the letter s until you find “Weather Plus Settings sub-menu s”, and press enter

4. Press the letter m to open the “Set and manage your cities” dialog box.

5. in the edit box, type in your location and postcode in the form CityName, PostCode

6. Tab to and press "test" button.

7 if the location is valid you can hear a beep , tab to the details button and press it to read the location details.

8. you can set the location as  the Preset default or simply add to your list using the appropriate buttons

9. Tab through the other controls, checking options you want to include in the forecast for your location.

10. When done, tab to OK and press enter

 

If you want to learn more about the other features of Weather_Plus you must read the readme.html file you find on the

nvda menu, preferences submenu, weather plus settings, documentation.

Hi, when I arrived home late last night, Saturday, I switched on my pc which uses Windows 10 64 bit and the latest version of NVDA and it asked me if I wanted to upgrade from 7.0 to 7.1. I have now the latest version on my pc, but how do I use this addon, ie what keys do I press to get results please?

Hi all,

 

I tested GSuite as the company where I work is considering using it.

 

I found no differences regarding accessibility of Google Mail, Sheets or Docs. Now, I haven’t really done a test of all the functions and there might be some differences to the non-business versions but they weren’t apparent while I tried it.

Re: ALVA 544 Satellite Traveller braille display with NVDA

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi,


RE: RS-232 to USB 2.0 cable for a braille display.

Sorry about that, I just realised that I hadn't emailed you the link I promised from Ebay!

Anyhow, this guy sells both the female cable and the male cable. On the back of my braille note it is a male connection, so I bought the female RS-232 to USB 2.0 cable to go on there.

It also came with a driver mini CD which works on my Windows 10 operating system.

I just use it as a braille display, rather than a note taker.

Here is the link https://www.ebay.com/itm/RS-232-Serial-to-USB-2-0-PL2303-Cable-Adapter-Converter-For-Win-7-8-MAC-OS-AU/143028406760?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649


I know that when I enquired here at PBTech (in New Zealand) they only had a male RS-232 to USB cable, but apparently I could have bought an adapter for $10 to change it to female.


I have just had another quick look on Ebay for you. It seems that they also sell the RS-232 gender changers if you wanted to adapt the cable you already have. Sometimes though it is just as easy to get the proper cable already done. I have been happy with the ones that I purchased. They are also nice and long.

Regards,

Gene

Re: Is there an accessible video editor I can use with NVDA?

I actually was going to suggest reaper, as it only takes about an hour to render about 2 hours of content on a good day or rm. but I'm on a mac.

Whe I use reaper it takes 30 minutes to render 2 hours of content on my windows machine, so I'd say it is yrou processer that is barfing.

Hello,
I tried FreeMake Video Converter using NVDA.
FreeVideoEditor_1.4.56.703_d.exe
https://www.freemake.com/how_to/how_to_cut_video_quickly

1After installing,  Open freeMake Video Converter

4 After the video loads,
Press spacebar to play or pause
press Home to move to start
End to go to the end
press ctrl+L to mark the start
ctrl+R to mark the finish
ctrl+Delete to delete the selected part.
5 Next, tab pass the Rotate 90° CW button.
 Now there will be three unlabeled buttons.
Choose the second button and press enter.
6 Tab to get to the desired format, such as, mp4.
Press enter to choose it.
7 Now tab or shift+tab to the convert button and press enter.
A new screen appears with two options:
1 Convert without logo  button
2 Link
choose this link and press enter.
8 After the video is converted, there will be a OK button, press it.
9 There will be a close button, after pressing it, press alt+F4 to exit the program.
You will need to get someone to view your video to let us know if the Logo is on the entire video, or only at the beginning.

Re: Is there an accessible video editor I can use with NVDA?

Joshua Tubbs
 

Well, I really wish Replay Media Splitter was accessible right about now.

That app opens videos extremely fast and I can hit play without it
buffering and freezing.

Virtual Dub is just as bad as Reaper with large videos. I open it, hit
space and it buffers like crazy. I'm not sure what to do about it.
When I hit space it says dub in progress and I can't hit any key to
stop it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. If other video editors open
videos and play them back without any issues it can't be a CPU
problem.

Did the log I send not show what is going on?

Re: excel and headers not working as intended

Hi Sally,

From what you described, what you are doing and what we suggested should normally work.  If you can send me offlist a copy of the spreadsheet you are using, I can have a look at that.  If you let me know which lesson in the material you are working on, I can double check that they are in fact correct.

Kind regards

Quentin.

The other thing to note is that column headers are only announced as you move left or right (between columns), and row headers are only announced as you change rows.  If you have column headers set and press the down arrow - the column hasn't changed so the header isn't read again.

Subject: [nvda] excel and headers not working as intended

Hello all,

I don't see anything describing my situation in recent conversations so
am starting a new thread.

I'm going through the NVDA excel training and have found that when
following the precise directions in the training, headers are not
reading as it says they should.

I have a set of cells with data. I go to the start of the row that I
want to use as column headers and press NVDA+shift+c.

NVDA announces A2 set as start of column headers. This is correct.

However that header is not read when I navigate through the table.

If I repeat the set column header hotkey, it says that the cell is
already set as the column header. If I press it twice rapidly it says
that the column header is removed.

Everything works as it should right up until I actually start navigating
the table data and do not hear headers spoken.

I am using NVDA 19.2, MS excel 1908 most recent build.

Has anyone else seen this problem? Am I missing something in settings? I
do have the table information checkbox for headers selected in the
document settings of NVDA.

If the instructions in the excel tutorial are missing a step it would be
good to correct that as well.

Thank you in advance for help troubleshooting this.

Warmly,
Sally

NVDA and accessible kindle book

Mary Otten
 

Hi folks,


This might not turn out to be an NVDA issue, but ...


I use the Kindle for PC with NVDA as well as my phone to read Kindle books. I just purchased one which, when I open it, a voice automatically starts reading at a speed that I did not set. It is apparently the tts that goes into action when the Kindle app starts reading something, kind of like what happens when you tell Acrobat reader to read out loud.


In the case of this book, NVDA sees no text at all. All the menus work. But when I do an insert down to start a read all from the selected chapter in the table of contents, nothing is read by NVDA. On my phone using the Voice Over screen reader, this book reads just fine, thank you very much.


I am aware that there are a few books that you can't read with a screen reader, period. But this doesn't seem to be one of those, since it is working fine on my phone. Is there some setting I'm missing that would allow me to use NVDA and my preferred voice and speed over the speech that comes from the Kindle program itself?


Mary

I have not been able to set a location yet. I sent out the log that shows it would not launch.


Thanks for these tips. I will write them down.

Hi

Once you have set a location, the most frequently used commands are

NVDA+w to read todays forecast

NVDA+Shift+w to read forecast for up to the next 9 days

 

If you try pressing NVDA+w and you get an error saying the WOE Id is missing, you need to set a location, as follows:

 

1. Open the NVDA menu using NVDA+n

2. Press the letter p to open the preferences sub-menu

3. Press the letter s until you find “Weather Plus Settings sub-menu s”, and press enter

4. Press the letter m to open the “Set and manage your cities” dialog box.

5. in the edit box, type in your location and postcode in the form CityName, PostCode

6. Tab to and press "test" button.

7 if the location is valid you can hear a beep , tab to the details button and press it to read the location details.

8. you can set the location as  the Preset default or simply add to your list using the appropriate buttons

9. Tab through the other controls, checking options you want to include in the forecast for your location.

10. When done, tab to OK and press enter

 

If you want to learn more about the other features of Weather_Plus you must read the readme.html file you find on the

nvda menu, preferences submenu, weather plus settings, documentation.

 

Cheers

Hi, when I arrived home late last night, Saturday, I switched on my pc which uses Windows 10 64 bit and the latest version of NVDA and it asked me if I wanted to upgrade from 7.0 to 7.1. I have now the latest version on my pc, but how do I use this addon, ie what keys do I press to get results please?

Hi Betsy,


This log contains no error indications for Weather_Plus.
You should try again to open the settings window, enter the city, etc. until you reproduce the problem you are experiencing.
At this point, please send me the log again.

Thanks

Hi

I have a friend who is getting exactly the same problem as Betsy has described.  When trying to use NVDA+w to get the forecast, he get a a message saying his WOE Id is missing, and when he tries to access the “Set and manage your cities” dialog from the Weather Plus Settings menu, Weather Plus just terminates without any error message.

I am sorry I am such a bother but for some reason since I turned my computer back on the weather ad--on no longer works. When I go under preferences, weather plus settings, and enter on the one about setting cities it takes me out of there. I cannot even get to the settings I need to set up like I did this morning. I have no idea what I am doing wrong or why it stopped working once the laptop was shut down.

 

I am using the latest version of NVDA and Windows 10.

 

I would sure appreciate any help you could give to me.

 

Also once we get it working again, hopefully someone can help me, where do I have to be to use the keystrokes such as the ones for settings entering a city, etc.?

 

Maybe I should not have done this but I uninstalled the ad-on and installed it again and still the same problem exists. This is why I am usually afraid to install and set up programs on my own. I was so proud this morning that the only thing I needed my daughter to help me with was to put in the city.

 

 

Thank you so much.

Thank you for the tip of where to go to do the settings. I just wanted to let you know that the combo box is not really a combo box according to my sighted daughter who is great with teaching blind/visually impaired people things about computers, as you have to type in the city first and then the combo box comes up with the choice of states. That is where I got hung up on finishing the settings. Thank you again for this app. I know I am going to enjoy it.

When I installed the ad-on and it read the help message it did not tell me how to set up an ID or anything like that. I am still very much a novice with things like this and would really appreciate knowing where to find a step=by-step of how to use the program. I would like to thank whoever worked on this program but please realize that some of us are not experts with computers and programs.

Hi,

Every addon you install displays a manifest message, you often find all the information you need to use it, often there is also a button that opens the documentation.
If the addon is already installed you can see the manifest by accessing from tools, manage add-ons or from preferences, weather_plus settings, documentation.

Once the weather app  is downloaded how does it work? IN other words, what are the keystrokes to use the app. By the way, whoever did the clock app that was discussed recently, I am really enjoying hearing the clock every half hour. It brings back memories of the old cuckoo clock my family used to have.

Hi to every one,

 

Important changes in this version 7.1:
• Fixed bug in Removeupdate() during addon restart if the file is set in read only.

Weather_Plus can update itself, however you can download it from the following pages:
http://www.nvda.it/files/plugin/weather_plus7.1.nvda-addon
Or:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/Weather_Plus.en.html

I wish thank Noelia, Abdel, Rémy, Zvonimir and all the translators for support this addon.

Greetings
