Problem with NVDA while reading documents

Vaibhav Bhandari
 

Hi all,
I am using the latest version of NVDA. Today, I was reading and doing
work in some documents but when suddenly I switched my documents by
pressing shift+tab, my nvda crashed. It was not reading the document
and no matter what I pressed it did not stop speaking. After
restarting it, the problem occurred again. This time I restarted NVDA
in debug mode and got the following message during that problem:
DEBUG - IAccessibleHandler.accessibleObjectFromEvent (13:02:41.398) -
MainThread (4820):
oleacc.AccessibleObjectFromEvent with window 1311748, objectID 109 and
childID 0: [WinError -2147467259] Unspecified error
This problem is continuously happening though fortunately not so
frequently. Can someone help me with this?

Re: NVDA2019.3.1 with new Driver Vocalizer menu doesn't show

Let’s try installing the voices first from the right place. Maybe I’m not getting them from where they should? Let me know, then the right page since I deleted their installers, thinking I wouldn’t need them anymore. I used to have the English and Spanish Compac voices packages. I’ve Googled, but I get to the version2 page, instead of the version3 ones. Thanks for info.

I installed the Portuguese and Spanish, as well as the English packages, but still no Vocalizer menu shows, nor does it show the Vocalizer engine when going through the synths with NVDA+Control+s. Any hints what’s going on?

Re: questions for Newest nvda update.

You can get Eloquence for NVDA, which works with 2019.3:  https://codefactoryglobal.com/app-store/voices-for-nvda/

I must admit, I don't know how it handles accented characters etc, but you can try the demo and check.

The fact that it works with eSpeak NG and not OneCore, indicates it is an issue with the OneCore voices rather than NVDA itself.  I'd suggest raising that with the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/disability-answer-desk

I just tried it with Microsoft SAPI 5 voices, and they read é as "e with acute".

If it is a specific set of characters, the other thing you can do is open NVDA's "punctuation / Symbol pronunciation" settings (NVDA+N, then P for preferences, then choose "punctuation / Symbol pronunciation", add an entry for each character, and what you would like to have said for it.

Re ClipSpeak, the reason we haven't added it in to core, is primarily that there is no definitive way to know that something has been cut, copied, pasted, etc.  The way the add-on works is by checking what else is going on, what is selected or on the clipboard now etc, and making an educated guess.  It does a fairly good job, but it is still a guess, and we'd rather not present something we are not sure about.  I'm also not sure if there are any performance impacts from the add-on.  I didn't notice any last time I used it, but I have a fairly fast machine and didn't rigorously test it.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi

 

At the time I posted my question regarding the ASCII-code, I used the one core voices. I tried it with SAPPI5 as well, and they also don’t sy anything else but, eg, e.

 

I accept that ESpeak NG might say the correct letter, but, call me full of nonsense, I haven’t found one of the ESpek NG voices that satisfy me.

 

I used to use Eloquence.

 

I suppose, if I don’t want to use the ESpeak voices, I just have to bare with what I have.

 

It would be nice if the NVDA developers could try to solve this problem in a next upgrade.

 

Regarding “copy and paste:, wouldn’t it be possible to make that add-on a built-in feature of NVDA?

Christo, am going to ask a silly question here, since just tested out exactly that, and, it worked fine.

 

What voice engine are you using?  Ask that, since, the MS one core voices will just read out, for example, the letter E with an accent on it as E, but, using eSpeak-NG, it tells me the difference between e and é (that second one is e-acute, typed right now using alt + numpad-130).

In Afrikaans we regularly make use of the ASCII codes for ‘accents’, ‘pounds’, ‘euros’ and much more.

 

To access the ASCII codes, we use the ALT-key plus the numeric keypad. I did everything, as I usually did, turned on the numeric-keypad, held down ALT and typed the number sequence.

 

Nothing happened. I tried it several times, with no success. Previously NVDA read the coded letter.

Hello!


Glad to hear the automatic language switching is working alright again, since is one of the best features of ou Vocalizer!


The number of activations is not an error... I have made the reset to have consideration to the number of times you have make a reset on the activation...


Now, let's solve the problem of verifying the license!

Hello Rui

I have tried the latest driver that you given, the switching language and no speech has been fixed Vocalizer is working now. But I have found a bug that I cannot do anything with my license from the menu again. I can't delete, can't check activation count and can't change my credential. I think the add-on can't talk to the server.
Note: I think it has some mistake about my activation. I'm using 1 activation on my laptop but when I checked the activation count before upgrade it said that I have 3 activations left. So I have 4 activation now include in my laptop. I would like to tell you to fixed that.

Re: Youtube - how to navigate

Gene
 

I've looked at this after not having done so for a long time.  I don't know how it is for sighted person, but for a blind person, having two settings buttons is just plain bad design.  You can change speeds, though.
Start something playing.
Move to the top of the page. 
Press b for button.  If the volume is too loud, listen for a pause button and press the space bar.
Whether you pause play or not, continue to down arrow.  Don't work with the button that just says settings.  Continue to press b until you get to a button that says submenu settings. 
Press the space bar to open the submenu.
Down arrow until you get to a button that says play speed.  Press the space bar on that button.
Now, continuing to down arrow will show you the options.  there are buttons for different speeds.  Press the space bar on the one you want.
 
In other words, in the now commmon fanatical quest to save screen space and make everything as small as possible, you have to expand item after item to get to what you want.  Everything, no matter how inconvenient, must change to accommodate the small screens of portable devices, no matter how many things you have to expand to get to what you want. 
 
Also, don't worry about whether you hear expanded in this area.  Everything or almost everything says expanded whether it is or not.  If you haven't expanded something and it shoule be because you don't see what you should in this area, expand it.

Thank you for all of that but I want to learn how to speed up the playback of YouTube videos using NVDA
Are used to put them into VLC media player But if the YouTube is part of a playlist VLC media player no longer seems to play it
I liked that player because I could speed up and slow down the playback pause and do all sorts of media type things with the video Stream
I’ll talk to sighted people and they say that there is a way of doing that on the normal YouTube videos screen that comes up But I haven’t yet worked out how to do it with NVDA by the way I’m using Mozilla Firefox And Windows 10 with all updates applied

Dear sir,
First of all my apologies for my mistakeful English. I am using Youtube daily. So, please read the following fully.

If you feel the following is confusing, I have mentioned the very very basic style of navigation at the bottom of this reply which I was used when I was started to use YouTube with NVDA.

Open a browser and press Ctrl + L and type or copy and paste the below url.

youtube.com/feed/subscriptions

and press enter key. It will open the subscriptions page to see the videos from the channels you have subscribed.

After the page loads, press D until you hear Main Landmark Today Heading Level 2

This puts you in the main part of the webpage.

Then pressing 3 key will help you to read the title of the first video and again pressing 3 key will read the next and so on. Pressing Shift + 3 will work in vice versa (reverse).

After moving the navigation to the video you like, press space bar key or Enter key to play the video. A new page is loaded and the selected video will start to play in the next page.

The Title of the video which is currently playing will be in Heading 1 level. So, pressing 1 or Shift + 1 will tells you the current playing video's title.

To jump to the current playing video's player controls, press D or Shift +d until NVDA says Main Landmark. Then pressing the tab key will change the controls to the slider, pause, mute, next, settings, etc. Shift + tab for moving vice versa. (Or B key to navigate by buttons such as play, pause, next, mute, etc.)

You said "When watching a video in Youtube, she used to move the mouse to the videos listed on the right side of the Youtube page and click on the mouse, to go to the next or another video. NVDA would read the content of the videos...".

For that see the following:
Pressing 3 will tell the title of the suggested videos (which is on the right side) one by one. Shift + 3 for vice versa.

Pressing Enter or Space bar will play that video.

If you feel the above was confusing, simply press H key or Shift + H key to navigate by headings (video titles). D or Shift D for Landmarks, B or Shift B for buttons such as play, pause, action, like, dislike etc.

Hope I haven't confused you much and I hope it will surely help you.

If you have any other questions, feel free to reply me (your brother). Thank you sir.

Re: Youtube - how to navigate

Easwaran Chinraj
 

Dear sir,
I never used VLC player before for YouTube Videos. But I know how to change the playback speed in Browser.

When a YouTube video is playing in the browser, press D or Shift + D until you hear Main Landmark Clickable Complementary Landmark.

Then press tab until NVDA says Seek Slider and says the time of the video which is playing. For example

Seek slider slider 3 minutes 14 seconds of 12 minutes 57 seconds

Now press Shift + > to increase the playback speed and Shift + < to decrease the playback speed.

And arrow keys to skip the video forward and backward.

Pressing the Escape key will move the NVDA Navigation controls out of the Seek slider.

Reading this will confuse you a lot. So, do the above steps one by one while reading.

Or an alternate method:
Note: The first method is the easiest one.
When a video is playing, press D or Shift + D until NVDA says Main LandMark Clickable Complementry Landmark.

Then press the B key until you hear

Settings Menu Button Submenu Settings

Now press Space bar key or Enter. A menu will open.

Press Down arrow key or Up arrow key to navigate the menu until you hear

Playback speed Normal submenu 3 of 5

Now press Right arrow key to open the menu and press Up or Down arrow keys to select the desired playback speed and press Enter key. This will change the video playback speed.

After changing the playback speed press Escape key to close the settings menu.

Hope you will understand. (Because I am not fluent in English).

If you have any questions, feel free to reply me (your brother). Thank you sir.

Thank you for all of that but I want to learn how to speed up the playback of YouTube videos using NVDA
Are used to put them into VLC media player But if the YouTube is part of a playlist VLC media player no longer seems to play it
I liked that player because I could speed up and slow down the playback pause and do all sorts of media type things with the video Stream
I’ll talk to sighted people and they say that there is a way of doing that on the normal YouTube videos screen that comes up But I haven’t yet worked out how to do it with NVDA by the way I’m using Mozilla Firefox And Windows 10 with all updates applied
Kind regards Ian

Dear sir,
First of all my apologies for my mistakeful English. I am using Youtube daily. So, please read the following fully.

If you feel the following is confusing, I have mentioned the very very basic style of navigation at the bottom of this reply which I was used when I was started to use YouTube with NVDA.

Open a browser and press Ctrl + L and type or copy and paste the below url.

youtube.com/feed/subscriptions

and press enter key. It will open the subscriptions page to see the videos from the channels you have subscribed.

After the page loads, press D until you hear Main Landmark Today Heading Level 2

This puts you in the main part of the webpage.

Then pressing 3 key will help you to read the title of the first video and again pressing 3 key will read the next and so on. Pressing Shift + 3 will work in vice versa (reverse).

After moving the navigation to the video you like, press space bar key or Enter key to play the video. A new page is loaded and the selected video will start to play in the next page.

The Title of the video which is currently playing will be in Heading 1 level. So, pressing 1 or Shift + 1 will tells you the current playing video's title.

To jump to the current playing video's player controls, press D or Shift +d until NVDA says Main Landmark. Then pressing the tab key will change the controls to the slider, pause, mute, next, settings, etc. Shift + tab for moving vice versa. (Or B key to navigate by buttons such as play, pause, next, mute, etc.)

You said "When watching a video in Youtube, she used to move the mouse to the videos listed on the right side of the Youtube page and click on the mouse, to go to the next or another video. NVDA would read the content of the videos...".

For that see the following:
Pressing 3 will tell the title of the suggested videos (which is on the right side) one by one. Shift + 3 for vice versa.

Pressing Enter or Space bar will play that video.

If you feel the above was confusing, simply press H key or Shift + H key to navigate by headings (video titles). D or Shift D for Landmarks, B or Shift B for buttons such as play, pause, action, like, dislike etc.

Hope I haven't confused you much and I hope it will surely help you.

If you have any other questions, feel free to reply me (your brother). Thank you sir.

With affection

Re: nvda 2019.3 vocalizer, and remote support

nutkittirat@...
 

Hello Rui

I have tried the latest driver that you given, the switching language and no speech has been fixed Vocalizer is working now. But I have found a bug that I cannot do anything with my license from the menu again. I can't delete, can't check activation count and can't change my credential. I think the add-on can't talk to the server.
Note: I think it has some mistake about my activation. I'm using 1 activation on my laptop but when I checked the activation count before upgrade it said that I have 3 activations left. So I have 4 activation now include in my laptop. I would like to tell you to fixed that.


Re: Visual indicator of NVDA cursor location?

Jacob Kruger
 

Under NVDA settings, find the vision category, and, besides toggling
screen curtain, there's also now the focus highlight option, which used
to be an add-on, but, now seems to be built in, and, offers exactly that
- highlighting what we're focused on?

Is there a way to enable some sort of visual indicator of the NVDA cursor so sighted people can follow along as we navigate?

Re: Image Editing Software

Quentin Christensen
 

I'm not aware of anything specifically, but you might try making an SVG file for your logo.  You can write it a bit like code (so the downside is you need to write it a bit like code...).  I found a tutorial on W3 Schools: https://www.w3schools.com/graphics/svg_intro.asp

Hey all.

Are there any accessible image editing software? I am trying to create a logo for my blog, (The Blind Advocate Network), and I’m trying to find accessible imaging software that works with NVDA. Any suggestions/websites would be welcomed.

Thanks.

Re: MathType equation reading

Quentin Christensen
 

Good afternoon,

We've had a look into this and found there is a problem with Math in Word using NVDA 2019.3.  We're working on a fix.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi all,
I just upgraded to NVDA 2019.3.1, and I've noticed that for some reason NVDA no longer reads MathType equatioins in Microsoft Word.
Any idea why this is happening? I do need to be able to read these MathType equations for my introduction to logic class so any fix is appreciated.
For your information, I have Math Player installed, I tried running the installer again but NVDA still does not read MathType equations.

NVDA2019.3.1 with new Driver Vocalizer menu doesn't show

Gerardo Corripio
 

I installed the driver Rui shared with the list, to fix the autolanguage switching problem reported, hoping that it’d show the Vocalizer Menu option within NVDA 2019.3.1, but no go! It’s installed OK I think; when I startNVDA, it says that It needs at least one voice to get the AddON to work. I installed the Portuguese and Spanish, as well as the English packages, but still no Vocalizer menu shows, nor does it show the Vocalizer engine when going through the synths with NVDA+Control+s. Any hints what’s going on?
