I have seen the comments about the 64 bit version somewhereelse, but cannot find it now. Is there a ticket for this or, in fact are we supposed to be using the 32 bit version which works as it should.

powershell is accessible with NVDA?
In my experience, it didn't..... even I copy a command and press enter, it didn't speak the result.....

I don't think by default anything is in the list, its up to each person to enter them as needed.


I have on several synths had to tell it that Brian is not in fact said as breean but Bryan instead.

Hello,

I’m going to sound really thick here, I have gone into all three
dictionaries and can’t get NVDA to speak the list of entries in either the
default dictionary or the voice dictionary. I want to get the word Co to say
just that, not company or county , I want this whether there is a full stop
after it or not. There is obviously an entry in the list pertaining to this
which I want to delete, but first I need to find it in the list, as I said,
I can’t get the list spokenin order to focus on this entry.
Can anyone elaborate on how to read the list? Thank you in advance.

Best Regards, Jim.

You can do this via the speech dictionaries. To edit the dictionary:

1. Press NVDA+n to open the NVDA menu
2. Press P for preferences
3. Press enter or d for default dictionary, v for voice dictionary or t for
temporary dictionary:

a.. Default: rules in this dictionary affect all speech in NVDA.
a.. Voice: rules in this dictionary affect speech for the synthesizer voice
currently being used.
a.. Temporary: rules in this dictionary affect all speech in NVDA, but only
for the current session. These rules are temporary and will be lost if NVDA
is restarted.

4. Press alt+a to add a new rule

5. Type "co." (with the dot but without the quotes)
6. Press tab
7. Type the new word (county)
8. Press enter
9. Press TAB four times to get to the OK button
10. Press ENTER.

More information on the dictionaries here:

Hi,



I wonder if anyone can advise how I can get NVDA to say “County” when it
meets the contraction “Co.” in an address line?



I am using “ETI Eloquence” as my speech engine in NVDA 2016.2 and Windows
10.



This is the common way to present the County in both the UK and Ireland.
For example, I live in County Wicklow and this is represented in my address
line as “Co. Wicklow”. However, NVDA says “Company Wicklow” every time!

How can I fix this?

All advice and thoughts are welcome.




All the best,

Re: Some observations on usability aspects with Firefox and NVDA

Hello,
to my knowledge there is no MSAA buffer as such. Rather, NVDA uses IA2 to communicate with Firefox and thereby obtains the data with which it populates its own document review buffer. For some screen readers this is not even a buffer. For NVDA it is.
I agree that upon refresh the expected behaviour would be for the document review cursor to be placed at the top but this applies only to a top-level refresh of the entire document. I was just hoping for some indication of when the loading and rendering process has quieted down enough for a smooth reading experience. I might even be asking for something that's impossible because Firefox would need a pretty good crystal ball to predict what the scripts on a given page will do next, let alone in a few seconds. If so I can live with that annoyance.
Kind regards,
Felix Grützmacher

I''m not sure what is causing the behavior you are describing.  If a page fully refreshes, the expected behavior is that you will be returned to the top and reading will begin from the top.  If some certain part of the page is being refreshed, my speculation is that that may account for what you are experiencing if you are reading that part of the page. 
 
I'm not sure if you can control such behavior.  But you can try changing a setting in options.
Do you know how to find the checkbox that says something like warn me when sites attempt to redirect or reload the page? 
If not, I'll tell you.  But I have no idea if that setting would have any effect on this problem because if anything, only a part of a page is being refreshed, such as a region containing updating information such as a stock ticker or certain text on a page that may need to be kept current.  I doubt this setting has any effect on such behavior, though I don't know.

Hello,
I'd like to ask if anyone else is observing the following with recent versions of Firefox. When loading a page, whose title we shall define as T, NVDA announces chatter of the following structure:
T Mozilla Firefox. Unknown. Unknown. T Mozilla Firefox. T document
Now if you substitute anything substantial for T you can see how this would amount to a lot of sylables with no useful information content.
Also, Alt+Tabbing to Firefox produces:
T Mozilla Firefox, T document
Finally, are there plans to implement a way of finding out if a page has been fully loaded? I quite often find myself in the middle of reading a paragraph when suddenly some asynchronous update happens and the review cursor is thrown back a few lines or to the previous heading, to name but two instances.
Any suggestions on any of those?

Re: facebook messenger with nvda:

David Moore
 

Hi,
I experimented with Messenger.com,
and I like The Mobile site of Facebook much better. It is much more straight forward, and you can just enter on the link of a friend, send them a message, and press enter. Then, you can just go back to the list of friends, and message another person. Messenger did not work that well with NVDA for me.

Re: Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Bhavya,

The new colour option doesn't allow for complete dimming of the screen.  If you are using a desktop, you should be able to simply leave the monitor off (although my PC looks for the monitor connection and won't start if it doesn't detect that the monitor is already on (which is quite annoying as the monitor actually is on, it just takes a second or so to come on).  If you are using a laptop, you might try pressing WINDOWS+P to "Project" the screen and choose "Second screen only" to in effect turn off your main screen.

So what the new colour option does is simply make the Windows settings display with white text on a black background rather than black text on white, which is the default for most things.

You can set it in the windows options (WINDOWS+i), choose personalisation, then colours then "Choose your app mode" and set it to "Dark" rather than "Light".

Regards

Quentin.

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt F-4 and
hit enter. I also like the windows X, u and u keystroke too. It's similar to
how you'd shut down in windows XP.

Hi Steve,

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start
menu is now three columns wide. The left column has user account / file
explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps
(first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full
apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles. You can
still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context
menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd
have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.

If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U
again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power
button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just
never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due
to data loss :)

There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now
which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi, I assume folk are aware of this strange behaviour. Powershell is
not something I use a lot, basically a glorified command prompt, but
the 32 bit version has served me well on all machines before, and
indeed works fine in windows 10, but..
I did last night run the 64 bit version and found the following with
nvda. Typing into the command line is silent, but cursoring and
deleting works
Running a command etc, results in a mixed spoken output of normal text
output and single letters, ie spelled out speech, rather than that

Anyone know what causes this weird effect?
Its not fixed in the next branch cos I tried it last night.

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start menu is now three columns wide.  The left column has user account / file explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps (first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles.  You can still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

1. Windows D to go to the Desktop.

2. Control Space Bar to unselect.

3. Press the Context Menu key and down arrow to New Submenu, then right arrow to open the submenu.  Down arrow to Shortcut and press the Enter key. 

4. Copy and paste the following text in the Edit Field that appears, then Tab to the Next Button and press the Space Bar.

C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0

5. Type a Name for your new shortcut in the Edit Field that appears, then Tab to the Finish Button and press the Space Bar.  That’s it, you’re done.  You now have a shortcut on the Desktop for shutting down your computer. 

 

*Note: if you wish to add a Restart the Computer shortcut to the Desktop, you merely have to use the below text when following the above instructions. 

C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /r /t 0

Hi, Quentin,

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt F-4 and hit enter. I also like the windows X, u and u keystroke too. It's similar to how you'd shut down in windows XP.

Hi Steve,

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start menu is now three columns wide.  The left column has user account / file explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps (first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles.  You can still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.

If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due to data loss :)

There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi, Quentin,

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt F-4 and hit enter. I also like the windows X, u and u keystroke too. It's similar to how you'd shut down in windows XP.

Hi Steve,

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start menu is now three columns wide. The left column has user account / file explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps (first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles. You can still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.

If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due to data loss :)

There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.

Regards

Quentin.

This is a major update for Windows 10 being released August 2. I know
the update is out in Beta and many features have been changing since
the earliest release. Since these updates load automatically, are
there things we should be aware of as NVDA users?
Here's an article from "The Verge" released Monday July 25 at about 9 A.m. EDT.
