Best is a meaningless term in this context.  Best for what?  Do you want good effects?  Do you want specific abilities or features?  Your question cannot be properly answered. 
 
However, if you want to try a free multitrack recording program that is quite accessible and that is already used by a lot of blind people, there is a blind users list, you may want to try Audacity.  If you want a program that has professional effects and perhaps other features I don’t know about, you may want something else.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. But I should had wored my question a little different. I should have asked what is the best multi-track recorder for nvda.

It really isn’t a good idea for people, and I see it when evber such a question is asked, to recommend Goldwave without first knowing what a person wants to do.  Goldwave is not free.  It isn’t expensive unless you don’t have much money and you are on a tight budget, but it does cost something like forty or fifty U.S. dollars. 

 

If you just want to record and edit mp3 files, MP3 Direct Cut is a much better choice.  If you want to record and work with other formats, other programs would be used, MP3 Direct Cut only works with MP3 files but since many people just want to record and edit MP3 files, the way the person wants to use the program needs to be found out before making a recommendation.

Re: Does nvda work with Microsoft teams?

Hello.

While Microsoft Teams does have a few accessibility issues it does work very nicely with NVDA. I have started a discussion group for the purpose of discussing Teams with an emphasis on accessibility. To join, send an email to

teams-access+subscribe@groups.io

Please note that, due to time constraints, I am not able to provide personal support regarding using Teams. However, please send any relevant questions to the list.

Re: expanding links that won't expand

 

Jonathan,

           Heaven knows if someone can use the technique you suggest, it's far preferable.  I was just going for something that was dirt simple as far as generating the source code which puts the majority of the burden on the person doing the analysis of it after the fact.

           I love your technique, I just don't know how many will be successful with it, but they should try, for sure.

Re: expanding links that won't expand

Another way to capture a portion of a web page coding is to use the inspect element. This often shows up in the contextual menu, but not always. Although this presents a panel that is more complex than show source, it does put your cursor directly on the part of the code that you right clicked on. . Then moving up a line or two and using the application key again you can usually copy the appropriate HTML.

I keep trying to explain, and apparently to little avail, that web coding is an extremely fluid environment.  It's still in the process of actively being invented "beyond the basics" that have been around almost since the beginning.

There will be things that will not be accessible for a variety of reasons, some of which can be screen reader related and others that originate in what's being exposed to the screen reader itself.   And I expect it will continue to be this way for years, as the brilliant (and not so brilliant) young things keep coming up with new ideas in regard to how to present things on webpages.   It's going to be a game of catch-up on steroids.

But when an issue is found, if the page in question does not require one to be logged in, it makes it so much easier when the page address, as well as identification of the troublesome element, is offered.   I thank you again for having been so explicit in doing both.  It made actually helping you possible.  

It's also sometimes possible, like this time, to make sense of what's going on if the page source code is provided in those instances where the page is one after a point where you've logged in.  Page source code does not contain any of the information you've entered on a form, for instance, but is the HTML code used to present that page to you, the end user.  If that simmarket.com "Your Account" control had been behind a login, you could still use your web browser's Show Source command to have the HTML source code for the page opened up in a different tab.  If that's then copied and pasted into an MS-Word document, and you can identify the control label where you're getting stuck, if that can be found and the object type deciphered there might be a workaround.  By the way, in Chromium-based browsers the Show source keyboard shortcut for the web page you're viewing is CTRL+U, and you cannot have focus in a text box or other control when you issue that command.  CTRL+U also works in Firefox.  A web search on "show page source" with the name of the browser you're using, if it's not one already mentioned, should turn up the keyboard shortcut for that given browser.

You can use reaper, audacity is free, but I personally do not like it. Reaper is about $60 but you get multi ck, midi support and it's very accessible with the osara scripts that have ben written for NVDA.

Re: most accessible audio recording software with nvda

I don’t know why it doesn’t have access but it can be used as a portable program.  the installer places shortcuts in various places to let you conveniently run the program.  I don’t remember how it is packaged.  I haven’t installed it for years but if it is offered as a zip program, you can unzip it wherever you want and use it.
 
Or you can try installing it in a different folder.  Does the installer allow you to change the installation folder?
 
Did you also get the Lame encoder?  You need to place the Lame.dll encoder file in the program folder.  I’m not sure I gave the exact name of the file but its very close and Lame is correct.
 
I can send you a presentation on the basics of how to use the program and it may contain a little installation infrmation.  I did it years ago and I don’t remember exactly what I put in it.

Re: most accessible audio recording software with nvda

Yes, it can record, in a very limited way.  You can’t edit, and I don’t think you can do anything but record.  It isn’t a meaningful recommendation to be used as a recording program.  While it technically can record, I don’t classify it as a recording program because its recording function is so limited and because it is used primarily as a ripping program.

When you run the .exe file to install it, before doing that, make sure you run it as administrator.  This should fix it.

the problem I have with Microsoft teams is that when moving between different programs ,and then returning to Microsoft teams app I no longer hear NVDA speech on the Microsoft teems app. NVDA keeps speaking  on windows in all of the programs I use to work with but not on Microsoft teems app. I can see the focus moves between the different elements of the program but no speech .by the way this is happens also with JAWS 2019. Only if I restart my computer and then restart NVDA and then open the Microsoft Teams app ,NVDA works with speech on the app .

Also I have tried to change TTS to the windows one core voice and two other voices  - and the issue still happening.

Gene,


I downloaded MP3 direct cut and tried to install it on my system.  I downloaded the version for Win 10.  It won't install, it says it doesn't have access to the folder where it wants to install it.  I will have to figure out another place to install it where it will still work.  Or, I may try to figure out how to authorize it.


It sounds good so thanks for suggesting it in an earlier posting.

If you just want to record and edit mp3 files, MP3 Direct Cut is a much better choice.  If you want to record and work with other formats, other programs would be used, MP3 Direct Cut only works with MP3 files but since many people just want to record and edit MP3 files, the way the person wants to use the program needs to be found out before making a recommendation.

Brian, if you are really patient with me I would love to work with you on this. I learn step by step and like to write down the steps as I go so I can look it up the next time that process is needed. I went to the link that you sent to me but could not find the right place to sign up to report the bugs with this beta version of Thunderbird. I am on the Eastern time zone and am free for the next hour and a half or otherwise it will have to wait until tomorrow. My evening is packed here until after 10:30 tonight.


Write me at blindangel61@... and I can give you my phone number there if you are able to help.


I am also wondering if there is a way to have the speech say less so maybe the extra information will stop speaking.

I do not want to go back gto the other version of Thunderbird if I have to reset everything again.


Thanks again.

I have wanted to continue my tutorial series on GitHub and reporting issues for NVDA, but I haven't had an issue to report in recent months, and I'm certainly not going to create a "fake issue" to try to document the steps to create an issue.  Same for Firefox or Thunderbird through Bugzilla.

This is not correct.

CDex has an analogue  recording function  so is perfectly feasible as a recording tool.

Check out the second menu option under Tools – analogue recording where you can set input devices including  choice of microphone and you can also specify sampling rates etc.

I keep trying to explain, and apparently to little avail, that web coding is an extremely fluid environment.  It's still in the process of actively being invented "beyond the basics" that have been around almost since the beginning.

There will be things that will not be accessible for a variety of reasons, some of which can be screen reader related and others that originate in what's being exposed to the screen reader itself.   And I expect it will continue to be this way for years, as the brilliant (and not so brilliant) young things keep coming up with new ideas in regard to how to present things on webpages.   It's going to be a game of catch-up on steroids.

But when an issue is found, if the page in question does not require one to be logged in, it makes it so much easier when the page address, as well as identification of the troublesome element, is offered.   I thank you again for having been so explicit in doing both.  It made actually helping you possible.  

It's also sometimes possible, like this time, to make sense of what's going on if the page source code is provided in those instances where the page is one after a point where you've logged in.  Page source code does not contain any of the information you've entered on a form, for instance, but is the HTML code used to present that page to you, the end user.  If that simmarket.com "Your Account" control had been behind a login, you could still use your web browser's Show Source command to have the HTML source code for the page opened up in a different tab.  If that's then copied and pasted into an MS-Word document, and you can identify the control label where you're getting stuck, if that can be found and the object type deciphered there might be a workaround.  By the way, in Chromium-based browsers the Show source keyboard shortcut for the web page you're viewing is CTRL+U, and you cannot have focus in a text box or other control when you issue that command.  CTRL+U also works in Firefox.  A web search on "show page source" with the name of the browser you're using, if it's not one already mentioned, should turn up the keyboard shortcut for that given browser.

Hi,
The best place to report Mozilla product bugs will be Bugzilla; if not, report them here.

Hello all,

Managed to contact a Thunderbird engineer via Twitter. To help figuring out what’s going with recent TB beta releases, this engineer graciously posted archive links for TB betas (use it at your own risk, especially if you wish to report issues to Thunderbird developers in tracking down performance issues):

  1. 74 beta 2: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/74.0b2/
  2. 75 beta 1: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/75.0b1/
  3. 75 beta 2: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/75.0b2/
  4. 75 beta 3: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/75.0b3/

You must choose the installer that is designed for your processor/platform (win32 or win64; for sake of ese of testing, try win32).

For each beta release, please do as exactly as I say below:

  1. Install each beta, beginning with 74 beta 2.
  2. Use Thunderbird as usual.
  3. Note down issues such as sluggishness or extra chatter.
  4. If you don’t experience issues, install the next (newer) beta.
  5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 until you do come across issues.
  6. Should you experience issues, report to the list immediately so Thunderbird developers can be notified. Be sure to note down exactly what issues you are having and in which Thunderbird beta version you are experiencing these issues.

 

There is a tool called Mozregression that allows developers to pinpoint exactly which change introduced a bug (NVDA developers can also do this through a tool called “git bisect”). But since not many of you are experienced in this sort of thing, the steps I listed above is the next best thing we have.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Betsy and all,

If I understand you correctly, NVDA somehow does not read next messages automatically when you delete the current message in Thunderbird, and you say this problem began when you updated add-ons and/or Thunderbird. To really figure out if it is Thunderbird, can you try reverting (going back) to latest public version of Thunderbird? If that resolves the problem, I think a love call to Mozilla would be in order (i.e. reporting the problem in hopes of Mozilla understanding and resolving it). Also, given that some folks did report a similar problem, I hope others can chime in with their findings with the steps I wrote earlier.

I assume I have the latest version of thunderbird. It seemed to start acting up about the same time I updated Thunderbird and also did some add-on updates with NVDA but I do not recall what they are.

 

It took me over half an hour even to get in the program tonight when I had shut it down--Thunderbird.

 

I wish I could figure out how to describe what is going one. One thing is when you delete an email it starts saying different letters like it is trying to tell you what is going on. I also can no longer go from one email to the next and have it read smoothly like I used to be able to do by just pushing the delete on the numpad and it going right to the next email. I now have to push insert and then down arrow--not numpad keys for it to stop saying all of those different letters. It is really hard to describe. It was running so smoothly.

 

I wonder if it is because I am running a beta version as I was willing to be a tester for them? I did not think of that earlier.
