special characters and punctuation feedback while typing in v2019.3.1

Martin Thomas Swaton
 

Hi,


I searched for this problem, but could not find a topic on it ... so if this already was asked, I am sorry...


Since the update the feedback of special characters and punctuation while typing has changed when you set the feedback to "words" and disable "characters".


normally special characters and punctuation was spoken emedeately on their keypress together with any other characters, that have been typed before.


example of old behaviour:

type: a.

feedback: a dot


new behavour:

type: a.

feedback: a


this is very problematic as you now do not get any feedback on typed special characters and punctuation. Try to type a smiley, you won't hear it. just silence.


Tried that with eloquence and espeak. So the speech/voice does not matter.


Hope this can be fixed

and additionally I would suggest to add a option/choice to choose wether special characters (and numbers) should be spoken emedeately on their keypress or together with other characters as whole words. So users could decide, which they prefer, as there where discussions in the past about that.


but right now it would be important to get back any feedback for theese special characters and punctuation.


cheers

Martin

Rui, an important question:
if a user install the new driver, is it possible to deactivate the old license from the new driver?

Sorry Rui,
I downloaded the vocalizer add on you recommended in your link and re-downloaded the voices I need and installed all of them, but it did not help. This time I did not get a message that they are not compatible, but I got no speech at all. How do I remove the installation activation of the vocalizer so that I can reuse it?  I do not want to lose one activation trying and failing.
I now reinstalled NVDA 2019.2 and everything is working normal.
Where can I find the instruction on how to remove the activation and restore it in another installation?

Did you hit Activate? I had to do this and then send in a problem ticket to Code Factory informing them of a lost key due to a NVDA upgrade. That we had no idea that the upgrade would be a problem for Eloquence.

Re: java access bridge doesn't work in nvda anymore

 

the program i use is Mediathek view and i have here a link to its website.
https://mediathekview.de/

i think i have something to explain. if you see the website, you will see the latest stable version, but i saw the nvda problem in an older version i turned back to last year, because my system said to the newer version something like: >this application can not be executed on your computer. i got no help from the developers, turned back to my older version and all was ok again until your latest update. and yes, i restarted my computer after i updated nvda and saw this problem.

kind regards

Re: how to disable announcing of battery charging/not charging

Quentin Christensen
 

I'd concur with wanting to get to the root cause - stopping NVDA reporting whether the battery is charging or not will only silence the symptom, not fix the problem.

Check your battery, cable, transformer and power point.  Make sure everything is connected tightly etc - if you can replace any one of those things conveniently, that can at least rule that item out (eg I expect you should be able to plug it into a different power point to see if it keeps happening, which will at least confirm the powerpoint is ok).

Pop into the python console and paste this in, pressing enter after:

The worst that will happen is that NVDA will break, requiring a restart. No big deal.

my laptop seems to be going a bit haywire. Every couple seconds the battery goes from charging to not charging and back again. NVDA announcing this each time is extremely annoying.

I tried checking NVDA settings, but couldn't find anything. Is it possible to disable NVDA automatically announcing when battery starts/stops charging?

Much appreciated,

Re: Changed settings not working

Here is an issue I created two years ago for this exact issue:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7514

I don't know whether it is exactly the same underlying cause, but it certainly seems the same as what people are encountering now (From what I can tell, it didn't seem too widespread previously, but certainly a number of people have either commented on that issue or mentioned it here in the last day or so).

If anyone can add anything new which might help narrow it down, do please comment on the GitHub issue: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/7514

Kind regards

Re: should win 7 users upgrade to 2019.3.1

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Mack,

We'd encourage everyone to update to take advantage of the latest bugfixes and improvements.  There are a bunch of things you might find useful, and you can read those in the What's new file: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/releases/2019.3.1/nvda_2019.3.1_changes.html

The main reason you might run into problems with the new version, is if you are using old add-ons which have not been updated.  You can find the official list here: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/nvdapy3.en.html

You can download NVDA 2019.3.1 and either select "Continue running" or "Create a portable version" if you'd like to try it out before installing over your previous version.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: NVDA with Password

Quentin Christensen
 

I must admit I hadn't paid attention to this, but I don't think you should hear "blank" when moving to the start of a piece of text.  If you move the caret to the start of a field with text in it, NVDA should report the first character (the character to the right of the caret).  If you are in a password field, NVDA should report "star" instead of the character.

Just testing this now, NVDA 2019.2.1 seems to behave exactly the same for me?  As in, I don't get "blank" at the start of the password field, unless the field itself is blank.

Also, 2019.2.1 is a minor ".1" point release of the second main version of 2019, not February first, although I know Eloquence at least reads it like a date.

Regards

Quentin.

Good Morning:  With the February first version of NVDA you could hear a
blank if you went past the beginning of the stars in your password
field.  This is the field for when signing into the computer that I'm
referring to.  With the new version you hear nothing and it's like you
can't go any farther back.  This blank help to know when you are at the
beginning of the field.  How does anyone else feel about this?  This
word of blank help me know that I'm at the beginning of the field
especially if a mistake had been made.  This tells me that I can start
again to enter my information.  As it is now with an insiders version of
windows 64 bit addition of 2004 it might be different than anyone else.

Re: Bad compatibility nvda 2019.3 with sound cards Realtek

Can someone experiencing this please send a DEBUG level NVDA log to me at info@...?

Also, out of curiosity, are the users of these Realtek cards with these problems also experiencing the issue with Pitch change for capitals not working?  (I've had that reported separately and just wondered if they were connected or not)

Hello, dear subscribers!
I have a few users in the new version of nvda 2019.3 noticed the
trouble: the program responds slowly when moving in the conductor
between files, pausing when reading any text in those places where
pauses shouldn't be. Also with the new nvda has become impossible to
read web pages - between all the elements of web pages, nvda pauses that
impede the perception. The problem is evident both in installation and
in portable version of nvda, as it is not dependent on the speech
synthesizer, it happens with any of them. We are faced with this
problem, found in our situations one thing in common: we have installed
a sound card from Realtek, and the model maps fairly new. As long as we
stay on the last stable version of nvda 2019.2.1, but we understand that
this is a temporary solution and it cannot go on forever, because this
version will soon cease to support a Supplement.
Can you please tell how to solve the compatibility issue with nvda
2019.3 with sound cards Realtek? If you are now ready solutions yet,
respectfully ask the developers to pay attention to this problem and
possibly solve it.
Thank you for your attention and help!

And this has been discussed, and announced as the future direction, as many times as it's been complained about recently.   The need has been recognized, but one has to set priorities, and getting the core product launched using Python 3 comes (or, now came) first.

Anyone needing NVDA Remote at the moment should not update to NVDA 2019.3.X.
