Sorry if I am confused. Is there a issue effecting all users with using the Vocalizer addon with VDDA 2019.3.1?

Re: Continuing my saga with Vocalizer voices with latest NVDA

 

Hi,

In short, whoever created the manifest used Python’s list syntax for specifying add-on name. This will require changes to the add-on from the vendor’s website (having experienced this problem with Vocalizer Direct compact voices myself, I’m not going through this again).

Cheers,

Joseph

vocalizer voices and latest nvda

Don H
 

I have installed a trial of the Vocalizer voices for windows. Even though I have the say cap unchecked under the speech settings it still says capital when typing a capital letter instead of just raising the pitch which I have selected. Is this a issue with the vocalizer voices?


Screen Curtain

Greg Rhodes
 

Default to toggle screen curtain on appears to be the Down Arrow. How do I set an alternate keyboard shortcut for toggling screen curtain on and off? Not finding directions to do this in the User Manual or NVDA Basics book. Thanks.

 

Greg

Dropbox add-on 4.4 #addonrelease

Patrick ZAJDA
 

hello all,


The addon Dropbox version 4.4 has been published.

The link to download it is: https://patrick.zajda.fr/nvda/dropbox-4.4.nvda-addon

Alternate link: https://github.com/Nardol/dropbox/releases/download/v4.4/dropbox-4.4.nvda-addon


Unfortunately, it looks like translations have been reduced to the name and description of the add-on. The messages from the add-on itself are in English.

Why? I don't know.


Best regards,

Re: vocalizer for windows

Roger Stewart
 

If it is for Windows in general and not specific to NVDA, it may very well be a SAPI 5 version.  Check under synths for Microsoft SAPI 5 and see if it is in that list.

Re: screen not refreshing on certain sites

Gene
 

It’s a bug.  When you enter information into a form, the page refreshes in the browse mode cursor.  If it didn't, you would have to manually refresh it every time you enter information using browse mode.
 
I don't know what NVDA does if a page automatically refreshes.

Well, I'm not a NVDA programmer myself, but I would presume that they had good reasons not to automatically refresh the browse mode. Probably it would be pretty disturbing, when you are navigating a website and all a sudden everything changes due to some update of the website.

Have you tried the F5 key to refresh the website, or - more likely - the NVDA + F5 key stroke to refresh the NVDA browsing mode?

On some sites, audible being the chief, whenever I try making changes to a given page it doesn’t seem to refresh properproperly unless I alt tab out of it then alt tab back in.

 

This was happening before the update but I can’t seem to find how you stop it.

 

Can someone please help?

Hi,

A developer of this display contacted NVDA developers about this a few hours ago, and they are working on resolving this issue.

That is a code factory issue that might have to b asked about, but given what they did to android and just quit eloquence, I would be surprised if they even listened to us anymore.

The only thing I wish we could do is lets say you have a computer crash and you are out of activations for eloquence or vocalizer. I wish we could go to a special website, put in our registered license key, press reset button, and our key count or license count will be reset back to 3 installs. You can do this with jaws, so why not vocalizer and eloquence? Its annoying if you have a computer crash and want to get back up right away and if you are out of keys you have to contact your distributor and they have to reset your license back to 3 activations for you. I wish we could do this ourselves like we can with jaws.
