Yeah, I've never had issues with NVDA and Thunderbird.

Re: Pop-up messages in Windows 10

If, when you receive a notification, you press Windows A and can the find the offending notification, you will often find a do not disturb type option on the context menu which will say do not notify me of message like this.
I used this to block the constant nagging, for example, from java to update.

Hello all


I know there is no way to access the text of pop-up notifications in Windows, but is there a shortcut key to make them all go away? The reason I ask is that occasionally when I am presenting using powerpoint one comes along and I don't know how to make it go away ...

Hi Gene,

I hate to bother you.  I was able to download the main file “RH voice.zip” but even with my daughter’s help, we could not get to download the other file “RHVoice-1.0.0.nvda-addon” 

Pls help.  Whatever you do is greatly appreciated.

Blessings

then jump down to the english part and under that is another one for language data or some thing like that it will also need to be installed.


Just under it is 4 english voices you will need to download also and install the ones you want.

so if you only get one that will be a starter.


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.

Hopefully it should get you up and running at the worst I can drop box main add on language one and the 2 voices i have here.

Re: a question about Addon Updater

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


the add on updater updates supported add ons that are found on the official nvda add on web page.


I read on the list about 60 percent of them are ready to go with nvda 2019.3 when it comes out. So they are updating them so they work on it.


I think if you have nvda 2019.2 100 percent are compatible


It is because of the new python 3 code they need it to work on.

Jaws is now doing better with thunderbird than nvda

Jaffar Sidek
 

Hi.  The subject says it all.  Just recently, I've been having a smoother experience using Jaws 2019 with Tthunderbird.  While with NVDA Thunderbird drags and lags like some creaky old machine, it seems to have developed a better understanding with Jaws.  IF there are lags, they are less pronounced.  Going through mail, typing out messages, these chores seem to be less frustrating, in fact, without frustration on most occasions.  I used to think that NVDA would always be a smoother ride with TB hands down, but not any more.  I hope the powers that be will take note of this.  Some have pinpointed TB as the cause, but I'm not sure it is so straightforward as that anymore.  I had to resort to checking and writing mail with Jaws as my screen reader because NVDA is giving me daily frustrations when it comes to dealing with TB.  Cheers!

Using Open VPN with the Nord vpn service

Jaffar Sidek
 

Hi.  I believe there were some enquiries with regards to using the NORDE vpn client some time ago.  As the Norde vpn client isn't accessible the alternative would be to use Open vpn instead.  Here are the instructions I wrote for someone else which i am now copying for those of you who enquired.

Copied message below.

Hi.  Sorry for the delay.  I've had lots of work and family commitments, but here's the alternative to using the Norde vpn Client.


First, go download open vpn from https://openvpn.net/community-downloads/ and just follow the default installation instructions.


Now, i am assuming you have an account with norde vpn, so go ahead and log into your account.  Look for the "Servers" link and click it.

Navigate with the H key for the list of servers and their related countries.  So if you are looking for a server in the US, just search for the "United States" link and click it.

Now, navigate to the heading that says: "find the best server for your needs.

Hit the letter B to quickly get to the "Find the best server button" and press the space bar.

Norde's Smart algorithm will find a server that suits you, a United States vpn server in your case.

With your down arrow key, navigate to the link that says: "Collapsed, show protocols."  Click it and the choices will be extended.  Choose:

1. Open Vpn Udp, Arrow down once and click the "Download Config" link to download the configuration file.

2.  Arrow down to the "Open VPN Tcp" config, arrow down again to the "Download Config" link to download the file.

Note: you might want to download both files to a convenient location such as your desk top.

Once both files are downloaded, copy your files to, if you have installed the 64bit open vpn client to C:\Program files\Open Vpn\config.

To connect, just go to your system tray, look for the open vpn icon and press the context menu key.  your Configuration files will automatically show up.  Choose the server name/number, press enter key, arrow to connect and click the enter key to choose it.  Then fill in your account details as registered with Nord VPn, tab to the connect button and your connection should be working as expected.  Please ask any questions if in doubt and I will do my best to answer as soon as I can.  Thanks,



Re: Playing tracks on Bandcamp.

JM Casey
 

Hey John.

I remember this topic coming up a while back. I use Bandcamp quite a bit. Unfortunately I also still use JAWS most of the time and I have not had any issues playing tracks in bandcamp using that reader. I thought back when this came up before I was able to do it with NVDA too, but maybe they have changed something. I will certainly takea look and see what happens.

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?

RH Voice

I still had the email with the link to the page so I found and installed all the English voices. It is working just fine and sounds promising. One voice sounds very like DecTalk and another kind of like Eloquence but they are all very easy to understand.

Text Reading Question

Greg Rhodes
 

When I have a numbered list in a MS Word document, NVDA will read the number e.g. 1 followed by my text, and then read the next number in the list e.g. 2. I arrow down a line and I get the number 2 followed by my text and the number 3. What setting do I change to get NVDA to not read the next line number at the end of the previous line? Thanks.

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.

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.

How is this progress? or will it happen?
Thanks.

Hi all,



Add-on Updater 19.10 and resource Monitor 19.10 will go out to the
world in a few hours. Add-on Updater 19.10 will now let you check for
updated versions of Debug Helper add-on by Luke Davis and includes new
and updated translations. Resource Monitor 19.10 brings localization
updates and properly recognizes latest Windows Insider Preview build
as Insider Preview build, along with fixing a compatibility issue with Python 3.



As always, when the updates become available, Add-on Updater will
guide you through the update process.

Re: New add-on for Brother Utilities app

P. Otter
 

yes it was a message from Rui Fontes.
    because I had purchased a printer of this brand that I responded to.
I wanted to know if there was a solution to read the ink level in NVDA.
that standard very difficult because they indicate the ink level of a chart and not numbers.becouse
cheers

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.
