Re: Question to NV-Access developers

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Christo,

I believe Innovision have previously distributed their driver either directly with units, or via their website.  Looking at http://innovisiontech.co/support/ I can see an NVDA driver there, however the link http://innovisiontech.co/wp-content/uploads/sites/6/2017/12/BrailleMe_NVDA.zip indicates it is from 2017.

I haven't seen an updated driver myself, however as I don't have one of their units, and I don't compile code directly, I don't necessarily have a reason to have it.  I'd suggest checking with them on where they are at.  I know it is frustrating, and while I normally encourage everyone to use the latest NVDA, in a situation like this, there is nothing wrong with using NVDA 2019.2.1 until the new driver comes out.  If you want to have the best of both worlds, you can have a portable copy of one version and an installed copy of the other - that way you can use the latest NVDA features from 2019.3.1, and still have access to Braille using 2019.2.1.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hello Quentin and others


Our organisation, Blind SA, is the distributor for the BrailleMe in South Africa. Some months back we alerted Innovision, manufacturers of the BrailleMe, about the compatibility issue with Python 3. They gave us the assurance that the updated add-on would be ready by the time NVDA 2019.3 was released, but it has not happened yet.

We had a Skype conference with Shyam Shah of Innovision yesterday and addressed this matter with him. He informed us that they had submitted their add-on to the NVDA people who review and publish add-ons and that they were waiting to hear from you about the add-on.

I wish to hear from you if you can confirm that you have indeed received the add-on and are reviewing it and if you could give an estimate as to when it would be published. I told Shyam that I would check with you and will also forward your response to him.


I also posted this to the NVDA add-ons list. I received two responses there indicating that they don't know anything about an update to this add-on. One person wrote that the add-on might have been sent to you at NV-Access for possible inclusion in the NVDA core, but that is unlikely.


Do you know anything about an updated version of the add-on? This is becoming a real issue for those who have been using the BrailleMe with NVDA. I know the delay is not your fault; I am just trying to find out where the process is and when we could expect an update from the manufacturers.

Re: New Member Seeking Tutorials

According to the site the material is quote

“Included in this package: ePub, HTML, Word Docx and kfx (Kindle).”

So yes it appears that you can use Word, or your web browser or eBook reading programs if you would prefer that.

 

I don’t know what the status of the mp3   material is.

Hi;

I took a look at the training material on the nvda site and had a question or two.  The basic training version is initially shown as an e-book.  Will this be something that can be read with word or will need some additional software.

Secondly there is a more expensive version which appears to be mp3.  Does anyone know how current the mp3 version is?  I think I saw a notice that it was done with a windows 7 pc so I wonder if there using the latest greatest version of nvda?

Any information appreciated.

Hi Richard,

 

As well as all the information previously mentioned, we have some official training material for NVDA you might be interested in.  The main one to start with is the Basic Training for NVDA.  Despite the name, it covers everything from starting NVDA through to advanced concepts like Object Navigation, the Review Cursor and Configuration Profiles.  It is available in a range of formats, starting at just $30 Australian (not much over $20 USD depending on the exchange rate of the day): https://www.nvaccess.org/shop

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Depending on how much you know about working with Windows and Windows programs and browsing, you may only need specific information such as how to use object navigation, and screen review.  The quick navigation keys for browsing will be very similar between JAWS and NVDA and my impression is that Window-eyes used roughly the same commands toward the end of its versions.

 

I can't suggest specific tutorials but that may help you know what to look for. 

 

 

If you need more instruction, others can suggest a lot of material.

Re: NVDA with Password

Dave Grossoehme
 

Good Day:  In February first if I backspaced out of the password field I would hear a blank for when you are at the beginning of the field.  Then the stars would start.  With March 1 if you make this same procedure you don't hear anything at all.  If you move forward you will hear the stars spoken.  It's like the backspace key would place you a character before the password field in your sign in location.

Dave

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.

Quentin.

can't go any farther back.  This blank help to know when you are at the

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

windows 64 bit addition of 2004 it might be different than anyone else.

Re: Question to NV-Access developers

Adriani Botez
 

No there is no pr for this one.
But I strongly recommend to contribute with a pull request when adding support for a new braille display. Adding support through an addon will not offer that much flexibility when structural changes are planned in the future. And many people will prefer a screen reader which supports the display nAtively, especially beginners or people with no internet conection.
