Possible bug found

Roger Stewart
 

I may have found a minor bug in latest NVDA.  I have the extended insert key (also known as the insert key on the "six pack" keys set as the nvda modifier key.  At first, I had thought it had gotten unset or something as when I press this key, I get no beep while I do get the beep when I press caps lock.  However, the key is working as the NVDA modifier key correctly.  Is this normal to have a beep for caps lock as the nvda modifier but no beep for the extended insert key?  I had thought both keys would beep for a single press to let you know it is the nvda key but they will do their normal functions if pressed twice quickly.  If there isn't supposed to be the beep on the extended insert key, then this is normal but I just wanted to ask about this as I'm pretty sure I have heard a beep for that key in earlier versions of nvda.

This deserves a separate response of its own.   On any group, and particularly those that are high traffic groups, there will always be tons of topics that do not hold even the slightest interest to a given reader even if they are entirely on-topic for the list.  This is precisely the reason I wrote the tutorial (take your pick of download format):

Anyone who wishes to remain engaged in a group, but also wants to limit their traffic, should follow the steps I describe for setting up topic preview.  That way, unless you follow a topic based upon the first message, you will not receive any additional messages from that topic.

Hi


Do you know if he is going to update the speech hub add on? so it works with nvda 2019.3


When I tried it  the last version was nvda 2019.2.1 I think it was I would have to check.

Speak On is self-voicing  much like Kurzweil so you would not use a Screenreader with it as it is controlled  just as if you were using a screenreader.

 

Isaac told me that he has updated the NVDA and Speech Player addons to be compatible with the latest version of NVDA but I don’t think they have been published yet.

As I understand it  the NVDA addon simply mutes NVDA whilst Speak On is in Focus

If Newsline produces material in ePub2 format then it may be worth importing the content into Speak On and try reading it with the RNIB eText Newsagent app anyway to see if this provides a good experience.
If you wanted to do this you would need to first of all add the RNIB eText app from the add plugins section of the Tools menu and then place your Newsline content, assuming it is epPub2  into  the Current Reading directory under the RNIB etect directory under My Speak On media folder.
 
Of course you can also read the ePub also using Speak On’s eBook function – oone of the worst decisions Isaac took was to name this app Text Publications which disguises it utility as an eBook reader.

Re: One Core Synth

 

Chris,

            This is similar to a method I used, and I can't recall whether it was under JAWS or NVDA, when the word cup was being read as Cuban Pesos if the document was a recipe where the format, "X cup," or "Y cups," is commonly used.  Making the replacement string have a capital C eliminated it being spoken as Cuban Pesos.

Hi


There was a list of books and websites that come across the list a while back so saved them just in case.


They are a list from people on this list who found the resources handy for learning python.


they might go from easy to hard? in learning it.


It does not have in the list what program you use which I guess would help or which ones the blind programmers find works well with nvda.

But that could be added.


I can put the list on my website maybe off the useful resources page so is easier to find if others want to learn python etc


The list is below.

Artificial Intelligence with python

python 3.5 Training

The Ultimate python Programming - Novice to Ninja

Practical Projects of python Programming

python:01 - python Fundamentals

Data Science with python

Machine Learning using python

 

Now, I know the educba classes are expensive if bought separately, but if you hang out on stacksocial.com or even skillwise.com ( at times) you can purchase whole groups of training all at once.  I got a deal for all of stone river Elearning for $59, then for $99 I got the whole collection of educba classes.  (the next day, I saw it for $49) *grumble*), so if you're patient, and if you really want to learn, there's no reason why you can't learn anything you like.  This is just talking about python classes and books, but this works for just about any topic.

 

stackskills.com also has several python courses, and I got access to 1100 plus courses (all it/technology related for $19 again, from stacksocial.com

Before you learn NVDA add-on development, learn Python 3 first. You need to have a solid grasp of at least intermediate Python features before you can say you are ready to write NVDA add-ons. Concepts you need to learn include classes, modules, functions, imports, and class attribute access/modification.

Think of it as default dictionary but active only if the chosen voice from the chosen synthesizer is in use.

Thanks for the clarification.

That's precisely the reason I chose to use the Default Dictionary over the Voice Dictionary, as I suspect that this issue crosses multiple OneCore voices and presume that "un-" and "re-" prefixes on verbs will not be read with the hyphen pronounced when doing read-all for any synth.  I could be utterly wrong, and would love to have confirmation or refutation.

It's often a matter of what synths and voices you're using and whether a change to the Default Dictionary screws something up for one (or more) of the synths/voices you use regularly while fixing something only for one.  Trial and error . . .

The only thing I could find about speak on is the below website? The last update was 2016. Is there a newer version I'm missing? It seems like it's a media player rather than a book reader so if anybody has an updated link, put it in the thread.

important brouser update notice

 

Hi all.

This stuff just came from my winaero posting.

According to winaero at least, it appears that due to the virus, there are a few pauses.

Firstly, edge, and chrome are not going to recieve any updates at least till this virus goes away.

So while there will be security and stability updates no new versions.

Next, the insiders group has a new windows 1909 and 1903 update in fast ring this is usually not mentioned as such on winaero but still.

This could signal another optional.

Point is, if you want 81.0 on chrome you will need to get it from beta if not, well you may want to use something else.

In addition mozilla is reenabling old ssl/tls 1.1 and 1.0 while this virus is on because some sites will not be updated just yet to the new 1.2 standard.

David, the NFB content is Daisy, which xml files.

Can my screen reader be used in this program?

Speak On was developed in the UK so the only direct connections it has to download is content from the RNIB eText and Audio Newsagent service and it also connects directly to TuneIn Radio if you have an  account with them.
However it does have a “Virtual Reader� function which interacts with the automatic eText digital content  generated by for Newspapers and Magazines in the UK which makes for a more pleasant reading experience.
If Newsline produces material in ePub2 format then it may be worth importing the content into Speak On and try reading it with the RNIB eText Newsagent app anyway to see if this provides a good experience.
If you wanted to do this you would need to first of all add the RNIB eText app from the add plugins section of the Tools menu and then place your Newsline content, assuming it is epPub2  into  the Current Reading directory under the RNIB etect directory under My Speak On media folder.
 
Of course you can also read the ePub also using Speak On’s eBook function – oone of the worst decisions Isaac took was to name this app Text Publications which disguises it utility as an eBook reader.

OK
My actual Podcasts on Speak On are being distributed by Talking Computers on a monthly basis and will appear on the Speak On website a month later but you can find all the recordings below on SendSpace links which will hopefully not be an issue. If there is an issue then I will try and put them also on Open  drive.
 
The main Speak On app is being continuously maintained by Isaac the Program developer though he has no intentions to do major revisions of the app.
 
The series is not complete as there will be further Podcasts on the RNIB Daisy magazine Service, using the Podcasts app and the Music app to follow.
I actually intend to replace and re-record the eBook Podcasts as half - way through the volume increases which is a little distracting.

Hi,

Brian gave you the subscription info for at least one development list. My advice is:

Before you learn NVDA add-on development, learn Python 3 first. You need to have a solid grasp of at least intermediate Python features before you can say you are ready to write NVDA add-ons. Concepts you need to learn include classes, modules, functions, imports, and class attribute access/modification.

zahra,

          I gave the direct link to the nvda-devel home page on Groups.io in my last message.  Those pages (for any given group) always include the Group Email Addresses section with the pertinent subscribe, unsubscribe, etc., addresses.

          Also, if you look at the group description in my prior message, and take a look at the more detailed one on the actual group page, it is made abundantly clear that this group is not meant for end-user support or suggestions.  In fact, the main page description ends with, "Please note this is not a general user support list."

          I created a tutorial last month:  Creating a Github Account, which I'd suggest you, or anyone interested with direct communication with the NVDA team, have a look at.  It is my intention to create additional tutorials as individuals wish to do specific things under GitHub.

          By the way, I have seen no indication from you that you have finally moved on from Windows XP.  If that is the case you really cannot use any currently supported version of NVDA and any feature changes will remain unavailable to you until you move to Windows 8 (which I do not recommend) or Windows 10.

Re: irrelevant information

 

While Window-Eyes, like JAWS, or VoiceOver, or TalkBack, or other screen readers occasionally get passing mention here during discussions, generally as a "compare and contrast" for a wanted but missing feature, they are not allowed as primary topics.

It would be foolish to even try to enforce some strict decree that any other screen reader, whether currently supported or obsolete, absolutely cannot be mentioned.

This complaint seems to me to be a solution in search of a non-existent problem.  The readership of this group, and other blind technology groups, is acutely aware that Window-Eyes is not a currently supported product, but that there are also some who have it that continue to use it and that the odd, occasional question will arise.  Asking questions about how to use Window-Eyes in the NVDA Group is off-topic, but mentioning a feature it had that NVDA does not, for example, and asking whether said feature might be in the pipeline is perfectly allowable.
