Hi don


A ticket has been created and you can comment or add a log etc.

Below is from the email and link to the ticket.

This was from one of the developers on the list.



Sorry folks, I haven't been ignoring those who have reported this to me directly.  We've had a few reports of this, and I can recreate it myself.  I hadn't yet created an issue, I was trying to investigate exactly what was going on with it.  In the meantime, someone else has created https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/10801 which seems as good a place as any to record any more info on this issue (feel free to comment on that issue if you can add any technical info, a log, etc).

Hi Gene

apologies, in my previous message I had a brainstorm and said that NVDA
kept saying "Confirm", I meant "Unknown".

It seems to say "Unknown" on all the pages I have loaded.

I have also removed all the Mozilla and NVDA files after uninstalling
the programs, and then I have reinstalled them with no luck.

And now I also have this problem that NVDA will not see the external
sound card.

NVDA works perfectly with Chrome.

I am not sure I understand your question about the Taskbar. Firefox
shows up on there.

Microsoft's accessibility help page for Edge.

 

I'm sharing this because I don't think it's been shared before. I'd bookmark the below. It has some useful links and lists and more, about using the Chromium based Microsoft Edge with the keyboard. Their grammar errors bug me but I can live with it. There's even a link at the bottom to help you revert back to the old Edge.

NVDA gets stuck in certain frames on a Web page

Maria S
 

Hi everyone. I am using NVDA 2019.3.1 with Windows 10 and have noticed
that when I use Firefox, NVDA gets stuck in certain frames of a Web
page. These are usually either ads or widgets for sharing to Facebook
or Twitter.

I know that there are other Web browsers, and I use them when I need
to, but I do prefer Firefox and have used it for years.

The only way I can find to temporarily fix the problem is to restart
NVDA, but it only works until it finds another frame.

Just wanted to report it in case the developers might have an idea of
what's wrong.

Any real advantage to installing the Vocalizer embeded Hi versus the embeded Pro voices?


Intonation Pauses with CodeFactory Eloquence

Jonathan Milam
 

Hi All,

 

With the CodeFactory Eloquence Add-on, I am noticing that it pauses quite frequently at punctuation symbols, or between the name of the item in focus and the list of elements within.  I have tried checking and unchecking intonation pauses but that doesn’t seem to help any.  How can I eliminate these pauses permanently?


Thanks,

Jonathan

Re: Accessibility issues with latest potplayer, warn user not to upgrade to latest version

yunus Emre
 

Hi  William Wong,
You don't have to downgrade.
Restart potplayer several times and try f5.
When you get to preferences: find tree view, go to top, expand general, under general Skins. Press tab several times, make Context menu combox and change it to system dafult.
Context menu:  System default  
And save it.
I hope it'll get fixed.
Can you tell me how do you copy current time by pressing hotkey?

You can just type %appdata%\nvda into the run dialog and get there.


There's also Explore NVDA user configuration directory in the NVDA folder in the Start menu.

Absolutely true.  And a great piece of information.   I'm just not presuming that most will be in a context where environment variables are at play when looking for it.

If you're trying to find the folder I noted earlier, and that %appdata% would get you to, in File Explorer you must have set hidden files and folders to be displayed, otherwise the AppData folder is hidden.

Re: backup speech dictionaries

Gene
 

I don't know where the .dic files are located in the installed version of NVDA.  In the portable version,, they are in the userconfig folder in a subfolder named speech dicts.  You can copy that folder wherever you want as a backup.  Or, you can make a portable version of your installed version and during the installation, you will be able to keep all your settings.  I don't know how it is worded, but the speech dictionaries will be backed up as part of the portable version.

Re: NVDA 2019.3.1 and External Soundcard and Firefox

Pele West
 

Hi Quentin

Thanks for your suggestions. Apologies if the message below seems a
little muddled. I have done so much uninstalling and reinstalling lately.

Before I wrote my first message I tried to change the output device in
the way you describe. The problem is that NVDA does not seem to see the
external sound card.

I started off by installing NVDA from a portable version created using a
different machine. The first time I did this, NVDA could see the sound
card and I was able to set it.

When I found it would not work with Firefox I uninstalled NVDA and
deleted the NVDA folder in AppData. Since then it has not been possible
to change to the external sound card as NVDA does not see it.

I use Window-Eyes on this machine and it works perfectly with the
external sound card.

I have also run the NVDA Com Registration Tool twice, and Firefox still
does not work. However, it does work using Chrome and Internet Explorer.

Both machines use Windows 7.

Is it worth trying to install NVDA from a download installation and
configuring it?

Pele

Hi Kara,

I'm not sure why you get better results with one OCR than the other, but
someone asked recently about Komplete Kontrol and I found a few
resources for them which might help (I haven't used it myself so really
have very little idea):

Firstly, https://kk-access.com/ has information about the accessibility
mode and how to set it up.

I also found this page on Native Instruments' blog:

Hi everyone.

I use a Komplete audio 6 audio interface, which has an inaccessible
control panel that I can sort of use via OCR. However, for some
inexplicable reason, I get better results when using the legacy OCR
add-on
than I do with Windows 10's built-in engine.

I have the add-on installed in a portable copy of 2019.,2.1, but since
every other add-on I use is now supported under 2019.3.1, It seems
pointless keeping this around if I can get it sorted.

So I was wondering if any of you know why this might be. I have checked
my screen resolution and scaling; both are set to their recommended
values. The app also can't be maximised.

Windows 10's OCR engine works everywhere else. It's literally just this
one thing I need to use the legacy add-on for.

I'm using Windows 10 home Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.657).

Thanks in advance for any help.
