Hello!

What was the extension?

The extra is only to the Brother utilities application, a kind of launcher to other Brother apps...

Any dificultie on those other apps, like in Brother control center?

Thanks Shaun. I downloaded the add on. I just don't know how to install it. Doesn't seem to have the file extensions that NVDA uses. I used the instructions for installing add-ons in NVDA.



I haven't had the mental energy to tackle the WiFi setup. I almost think it would be worth the installation fee if I get the tech to describe all the buttons.


Works fine as a printer using standard Windows print commands.


I like that this printer has dedicated buttons.

However I wouldn't bother.

The combo boxes are still as inaccessible as ever.

The documentation doesn't have a command list, it will run as far back is 17.03 and as current is last nvda.

The documentation seems to just be the really basic readme pulled from github.

Now this is from a user looking at this briefly.

The addon works.

But it may as well be a pile of crap for all it does to me.

I don't know how to work it, there is basically no documentation except for a small description about what it does.

There isn't even a keyboard shortcut list.

If at all possible, I would like to see more than a learn more button labeled on the brother utilities and the iprint software.

There is a combobox on brother utilities but that and iprint are pritty much no gos as far as it matters.

Luckily unless you need to reinstall the driver you never have to bother with this really.

In fact depending on what you are doing, you may never need to bother about any of the brother software for basic tasks, both printing and scanning.

If your router or something changes you can edit the printer address as long as you have set that up yourself and configure it from windows and the web interfaces.

Hopefully you won't need to do that that often.

The software is a bit hit and miss, but then its not a problem because you don't need to use that software for scanning and printing which is about all we will ever need it for.

Anything else and well who knows.

The software for most brother things are just front ends for standard dumb users that want to use it.

The web interface is accessible enough for most users.

If you know how to configure a router then you will know how to use the web interface of any device like this.

The brother printer is like that.

Playing tracks on Bandcamp.

John Isige
 

Hey all. Anybody know how to play tracks on Bandcamp? For example:


https://sundryitems.bandcamp.com/album/there-where-the-avalanche-stops


I used to highlight a button above a track name, hit numpad-0 and numpad slash together, and then hit numpad slash, and it would play. I've tried that, using numpad plus slash and then numpad plus enter. I've tried getting to a button and hitting NVDA-space and hitting space and enter. Nothing seems to be working. Is this just broken now, or am I missing something?

Hi


You may need to arrow down to download button then either press the space bar or enter key to download the zip file. It only has 2 files in it one been the main add on and the other for language there is no voices in it unless I delete the file and do a new one. I only tried out 2 of the voices in english to see what they were like.


it can be done with those other 2 voices or i could also get the other 2 and add into the zip file.

After the mentioned files have been installed you should be able to see the voices.

 

You just need to change your synth to RH voice first then pick your voices second or voice you want to use.

Re: Question About Copying Text

Tony Malykh
 

That's not true. Control+C seems to be defined as NVDA shortcut, that overrides default Windows shortcut, see cursorManager.py:

def script_copyToClipboard(self,gesture):

On the other hand, my workaround bypasses this shortcut and triggers default windows copy to clipboard behavior.

I believe this is a feature (or a known problem) of NVDA - all the copy/paste commands in NVDA operate only on plain text. I just checked with Jaws - it can preserve formatting and hyperlinks when copying from browser to Microsoft word. Maybe others can tell whether this works with narrator.

I think I just found this workaround for you. If you select text in browser and then instead of pressing Control+C you press applications button and in the context menu select copy, then at least the hyperlinks seem to be preserved. This works for me when copying from Chrome to MS Word.

Hi. Okay, let me try to explain this better. I'm taking an online class where there's a lot of reading. For some of the discussion board posts, we're supposed to copy and paste the part of the reading that we want to talk about. When my classmates copy text from the reading, they somehow manage to keep the links and other formatting intact. I want to be able to do this. I'm copying from a web page and pasting it into a rich text edit field. When I paste the copied text, all formatting and links seem to have been removed. I hope this helps you understand what I'm trying to do. Thanks.

Hello!

What was the extension?

The extra is only to the Brother utilities application, a kind of launcher to other Brother apps...

Any dificultie on those other apps, like in Brother control center?

Thanks Shaun. I downloaded the add on. I just don't know how to install it. Doesn't seem to have the file extensions that NVDA uses. I used the instructions for installing add-ons in NVDA.



I haven't had the mental energy to tackle the WiFi setup. I almost think it would be worth the installation fee if I get the tech to describe all the buttons.


Works fine as a printer using standard Windows print commands.


I like that this printer has dedicated buttons.

However I wouldn't bother.

The combo boxes are still as inaccessible as ever.

The documentation doesn't have a command list, it will run as far back is 17.03 and as current is last nvda.

The documentation seems to just be the really basic readme pulled from github.

Now this is from a user looking at this briefly.

The addon works.

But it may as well be a pile of crap for all it does to me.

I don't know how to work it, there is basically no documentation except for a small description about what it does.

There isn't even a keyboard shortcut list.

If at all possible, I would like to see more than a learn more button labeled on the brother utilities and the iprint software.

There is a combobox on brother utilities but that and iprint are pritty much no gos as far as it matters.

Luckily unless you need to reinstall the driver you never have to bother with this really.

In fact depending on what you are doing, you may never need to bother about any of the brother software for basic tasks, both printing and scanning.

If your router or something changes you can edit the printer address as long as you have set that up yourself and configure it from windows and the web interfaces.

Hopefully you won't need to do that that often.

The software is a bit hit and miss, but then its not a problem because you don't need to use that software for scanning and printing which is about all we will ever need it for.

Anything else and well who knows.

The software for most brother things are just front ends for standard dumb users that want to use it.

The web interface is accessible enough for most users.

If you know how to configure a router then you will know how to use the web interface of any device like this.

The brother printer is like that.
