I would gladly do what you asked right now, but I am preparing to go on vacation. My specific goal for the next few days is to be almost completely off the grid. So' guess who will have a week's worth of list mail to go through, when she returns.
I will do it, when I return, whether or not someone else has.
So long for now. I am sending this reply and shutting down.

Hello,

In NVDA preferences, go to speech, and select change synthesizer. You can also press NVDA+shift+d to cycle through the options.

Thanks.

Hi Dean,


Press nvda shift D to toggle between no ducking, duck while speaking en always duck. I hope this helps.

See the Quick Commands Reference (NVDA+N,H,Q) then search on ducking.  You'll find the keyboard shortcut that toggles ducking states.

Firefox addon and shortcut to read address

Vincent Le Goff <vincent.legoff.srs@...>
 

Hi everyone,


Am I the only one using Firefox, the mozilla NVDA addon and experiencing issues when pressing NVDA + A to read the address bar?  I've become quite fond of this shortcut but I always get "Address not found".  Before reporting to the addon developer I would like to check.  It might be something else entirely, if no one has the same issue.


Thanks,


Vincent

No, I'm sorry, I did not initially pay close attention to this thread because I was a week behind in list mail and trying to catch up quickly. I'm sure you were perfectly clear.

However, when I located Alt+F4 among the many Emulated System Keyboard   Keys and removed the single gesture for it, Alt+4 was no longer in the list of keys
to emulate. I had no idea how to retrieve it other than to obliterate whatever file I had altered in order to restore the defaults. 
I really don't think that should happen.
I am just wondering at how best to debug this.
I don't have a braille display, so can't do it locally.
But if it's a recurrent problem, it needs to be worked on, which means someone needs to file an issue for it.

Would you or someone be willing to replicate this process in a portable copy with debugging turned on, and then provide a copy of the log?

Re: nvda and volume change

Joe Paton
 

Hello quentin,

It has been quite a while since I wrote to the list regarding this volume change problem.

I maybe should have change the subject to something like "egg on my face."

It turns out that the issue indeed was caused by a ducking setting being in force.

I did not realize that there are three settings, so completely mis read the screen output.

Thanks for writing, and great pleasure around my wife's office just now, as she does a lot of work with audio.

Just thought I'd update you.

Thanks.

Re: Replacing an Input Gesture

Suzy
 

Hi, Luke.

I'm sorry' if I wasn't clear. I began my first message with:
"I am using Windows 10 (with all automatic updates installed), NVDA 2019.2.1, and a Braille Edge display. The HIMS driver is installed."
I assumed it was clear that I was remapping commands for the Braille Edge. 
There are several reasons for doing this. 
1. I have a VarioUltra 20, which I use with NVDA and The Braille Extender add-on. I love the functionality Braille Extender adds to NVDA' and I desired the same with the Edge. The Edge is not supported by Braille Extender. But, the developer points out that changes can be made through the Input Gestures dialog.
2. My hands are small' and several of the default mappings for commands are awkward. 
3. I want gestures to make more use of the Edge's eight function keys.
4. I want some gestures to more closely match their Vu counterparts in Braille Extender, so my memory is not taxed from display to display.
5. It is cold' dismal, and rainy here' so I have a perfect excuse for sitting down and learning.
I am not changing what Alt+F4 does. And Alt+F4 as a keystroke did not disappear.
However, when I located Alt+F4 among the many Emulated System Keyboard   Keys and removed the single gesture for it, Alt+4 was no longer in the list of keys to emulate. I had no idea how to retrieve it other than to obliterate whatever file I had altered in order to restore the defaults. 
thus my attempts to uninstall and reinstall NVDA. Chris gave me instructions on how to do what I wanted. I followed them and remapped all the gestures I had created.
While I was at it, I examined the Gestures.ini file and manually created a gesture for F2. 
If I ever make the mistake of removing all mappings for a gesture in the future, I know I can re-enter it manually, or ,i can install the backup of the Gestures.ini file ,i am keeping in another folder.
I hope this clarifies the matter. 
Suzy

Yes, you can use a portable copy to make an installed copy. I have done it a couple times.

Re: NVDA Configuration File

Just make a portable copy of NVDA on a thumb drive or other removable media and when it asks if you want to copy the user configuration settings check the box. Now you can use that portable copy to install NVDA on another machine and all your current settings and even any add ons you have will be copied to the other machine.

Re: Libreoffice and text highlighting

V Stuart Foote
 

Have to check, but I believe when you are back on document canvas the highlighted status will sound if you have set NVDA to report formatting.


Otherwise, while navigated onto the Formatting toolbar and entered the Highlight Color control,

Having only one color sound when you mouseover the palette suggests you are not on the Standard palette and could have changed to the Document colors palette.

The palette choices are elements is the combobox listing--be sure you are on the
Standard entry

Move between the elements with Tab and shift-Tab, escape key to exit the dialog, F10 to return to main menu  and Control-F6 to return to document.

William,


After F10 and F6  movement to the "formatting toolbar", and  then Tab advancing onto the Highlight Color control

an enter will make the highlight to to selected text, using the current color (default color is yellow)

a cursor down will open the palette dialog, it will be titled Highlight Color, it is a multi element control Tab advances banetween the controls

it has a combobox list for changing the color palette in use

the default 'standard' color palette is the most useful in general  with  grays on the top row and the columns sequenced Yellows - Reds - Blues in tints and shades 

the picker is a 12 column multi-row palette of color swatches, with mouse over movements each color will sound its labeled name

a mouse click over a color will assign that color pick to highlighting 

if you had a text selection before clicking or opening the picker it will highlight that selection,  if not the cursor will become a  paint bucket and "pour" the highlight on any selection to be made.

Use an escape key to get out of the paint bucket mode and return.   If you cycle F10 to the menu, and a control plus F6 your focus and edit cursor will be back in the document.

Hi William,

In the document canvas select the text you would like to highlight.

Use F6 key to cycle to the Formatting Toolbar

Use Tab key to move to the Highlight Color dropdown button

Use Enter key to highlight the selected text with the color set for highlight

but if you need to check color, or pick a different color the, use the down cursor to open the color picker

at that point selection is NVDA screen navigation with mouse, on mouse over of each color patch the color name will sound. Click to select, it will apply highlight  to the selected text--and set that color for additional highlighting.

Use F10 to toggle back into the document, or back to the standard menu.
