Setting a key to change indentation level

Greg Wocher
 

Hello all,

Is there a way to set a key to set how NVDA announces indentation level? For example, I could use NVDA plus Control plus i to cycle thru the indentation levels.


Thanks,

Greg Wocher

NVDA is too verbose on Youtube?

Gerardo Corripio
 

I’ve a friend here in my city, whom I’m trying to convince that NVDA is the way to go these days, instead of the Shark, but he insists that he doesn’t like “the Martian” as he calls jokingly NVDA, Because especially on Youtube, it’s very verbose! You can be watching a video, and it’ll start reading off the comments for instance, when the Shark doesn’t do this. I tell him that the solution would be to, while on Youtube, to via the nvda+S to silence the speech, and when he needs to change videos or interact, regain speech via the before-mentioned combo. He and I have gone through the settings just to check if maybe there’s a setting that’ll make it behave better with Youtube? We turned off the Automatic Reading of sites. Any other ideas you guys could come up with? That might help?

How are you turning it off? If you are using NVDA q, it should be
completely unloaded and not do anything until you run it again.

Re: question regard skype?

 

Its also worth mentioning that everyone should get used to this because winaero has told me a couple weeks ago that the skype desktop will be the only one we will have from now on sooner or later.

Microsoft is going to be deleting skype, and skype will be going away perminantly at some stage.

What that means is that instead of universal skype and desktop skype skype electron desktop will be the new universal and be managed from the store, so it appears with their use of chrome and its tech that they are changing to a more or less web interface for just about everything which is probably a good thing in the long run.

Re: Bluetooth hearing aid lag on Windows 10 with NVDA.

You don't have to worry about turning Bluetooth audio off - this add-on monitors if NVDA is active, and by active I mean speaking anything. Once NVDA is inactive for 1 minute or so, it will stop playing silence to conserve the battery life of your hearing aid. Not sure whether the same would apply to silencio.

I'll have to play with both the Bluetooth Audio Add-On and, eventually, Silencio.  I would be careful about turning either one off when you know that you're going to be away from the computer for any length of time, as if you're within Bluetooth range of the machine when this is on it will keep the Bluetooth connectivity constantly in use on a hearing aid, and that does decrease your battery life.  My aids are rechargeable, but it would be really irritating were they to run out of power in the middle of the day because I'd been sitting anywhere near to my computer, after having established a Bluetooth connection, and the "silent keep alive" stream were running them down.

When you say "the addon for Bluetooth to stay connected, ", do you mean Bluetooth Audio add-on?

You're describing the beginning of every chunk of audio gets cut off, that is indeed indicative of your hearing aid entering standby mode too quickly. There is a program called Silencio, that you might want to try, it is similar to Bluetooth audio add-on, in the sense that it just plays silence and prevents bluetooth devices from entring stand by. You might want to try to see if it works.

Hello everyone,

I am currently am trying out a new hearing aid called the phonak Marvel. It has Bluetooth and I can connect this to my iPhone, Mac, and Windows 10. however, when i am connected to Windows 10 with NVDA, I have noticed that it have really really bad lag when the screenreader speaks. All first character or word is chopped off. Typing is almost impossible due to it is not spoken. It seems like as soon the TTS stop speaking, it goes into standby. However, my IPhone and mac does not have this problem. I have tried the addon for Bluetooth to stay connected, and I have not noticed a difference.

have anyone else have this issue too?

Thanks guys!
