Re: How can I get the date from a Braille display?

Hello,

 

I got this solved for now by adding an input gesture attached to the Braille Display (Dots 2,3,4,5,7 Chord). This seems to register when I press it 2 or 3 times.

Hi Daniel,

Sorry for the late reply.

With Braille Extender, you have a special command to show hour & date. By default, on Freedom Scientific displays, it's mapped to dots(1+2+5+7)+space.

I'll try to work around the possibility to emulate shortcuts pressed several time quickly.

HTH,

André

Hi all,

 

On a laptop keyboard, I am able to get the date by pressing NVDA F12 twice quickly.

 

On my Freedom Scientific Focus40 Blue, I can’t seem to do two presses quickly of NVDA+F12. The second press of F12 just sends an F12 through and I get the Save As dialog.

 

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

But its good to keep the k command in mind.  I’ve seen times on web pages where links read more intelligibly when you use the k command than when you tab.  Also, if you just want to move by link, you will do so and all other controls will be skipped.  In addition, I’ve seen pages where, when you tab, you lose your place on the page and you don’t with k.

Neat, but I guess it sounds like I should wait for the October updates,

and possibly the new XBox with accessibility fixes. I'm guessing you use

one of the phone OCR apps? And then point it at the screen to read the

sim stuff? That would not really be doable here, as I don't habitually

have a monitor connected, which generally causes windows to be confused

about screen resolution, among other things.

I’m not at all sure reinstalling will accomplish anything.  There is a way to repair SAPI 5, which I don’t know if it will help.  If the voices work before login, it appears they don’t need reinstallation.

I don’t know what was done to your computer, but I believe that even for something unrelated to software, if a computer is brought into a shop, routine diagnostic tests and maintenance may be done and I suspect something was done that caused the problems.  Those who have more technical knowledge and know what shops routinely do may want to comment.  In thinking about what you are describing and about a shop I used to use years ago, I’m beginning to think that if you take a computer in for a specific problem and it wrks properly aside from that, that it might be a good idea to instruct the shop to do nothing else.

Hi Jackie,


That's something I was thinking about possibly having to do, we're on
the same wavelength. Trust me I already as they say, googled it so we
don't even have to go there.  Needless to say, the hits were enormous,
and the answer is the proverbial needle in a haystack. Where can you
find the actual executable file for performing the re-install, that's
the question now.

Houdy folks,


Thanks for coming through for me over the weekend with my friend's
computer issue.  The fixes are in place, and everything is as it
should be on that score. Now I've got one of my own that's got me
baffled. Here's what's going down.


     I had some hardware repairs done on my desktop just before
we were
all thrown into chaos. Everything was fixed internally and all's
gravy
on that side of the ledger.  However, there is a strange thing going
on with Microsoft's Sapi 5 voices and NVDA that's got me
scratching my
head.  Please bare with me as I try to explain this because it's a
new one on me.


When I initially log on to enter my password, the proper voice
that I
use which is neospeech Paul comes on as it should. However, now this
is where things get dicey. Once past the log on screen the Sapi 5
voices loose all functionality, and I have to switch to the windows
one core voices for things to function in somewhat of a proper
manner.
I've tried all of the tricks that I know to put things right, but
nothing works.


I wouldn't normally put up a fuss about it, because I can use
the one
core voices just fine for most tasks. however, Some of the games
that I play to help keep me sane during this crazy time that we're
living in like chess, and cribbage also use the Microsoft Sapi 5
voices, and they've all been compromised as well. What's
happened, and
does anyone have a fix for this strange issue? Any help would be
appreciated.  Thanks much and everyone stay safe.

Re: links in email with thunderbird

Yes, I do have a back up email, but it’s the Windows 10 email client, which I loathe, and that’s being nice. I had an email client that I absolutely loved and used for well over a decade, long after I should’ve quit. I have never found anything since that comes close. I do not have Outlook, and I don’t want it. If somebody has a suggestion for another email client, I am willing to look into one.

Mary,

            I'm sorry to say that this sounds like a bug that has crept in, so you probably can't.  I would have to presume this is on the Thunderbird side, too.

            As a curiosity question, and not just to you, do you have a "backup" e-mail client that you can use to test against?  Given that you can have as many e-mail clients as you might like on a given computer if they're all accessing the same accounts via IMAP, it's worth having an extra one to test against when stuff like this comes up so that you can differentiate between the problem possibly being on the screen reader side versus the email client side.

Tip for canceling an Amazon subscription using NVDA & Windows 10

Jackie
 

I hope this helps others here. Sorry to those using an OS other than
Win 10, as this won't help yall.

I had the very unfortunate experience of needing to cancel an Amazon
subscribe-and-save subscription, admittedly due to my own stupidity.
The experience was, however, made considerably worse due to
accessibility issues. I hesitated to call the Amazon Disability
Support desk because the last time I put a phone call in, what I
needed didn't get done, ie, somehow they thought I didn't get my
merchandise, they issued a refund, I asked them to cancel that because
I did indeed receive my order, & they gave me my money back anyway. O
well. I tried to be honest. Be that as it may, here's what I ended up
doing.

In order to cancel a subscription, you log into your account, then
activate the 'orders & lists' link, then the subscribe-&-save link.
Find the name of the subscription you wish to deactivate. In my case
it began with: "Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diets Probiotics Cat
Supplement..."

Using object navigation, I navigated to the previous object (nvda +
shift + left arrow on my laptop. It's a graphic. Press NVDA+r to
recognize the content. Now press the spacebar to open the options
where you can change delivery options or cancel the subscription.

This should not have to be like that, ie, this "hovering" over an icon
to make options appear is a well-known accessibility "no-no". Having
thus said, complaining to the disability support desk would be utterly
futile, as they don't have either the language skills or knowledge to
file such a complaint, though having thus said, I'm thoroughly
grateful for their being available & I very much appreciate their
service.

At any rate, as I said, I hope this helps someone who finds themselves
similarly situated. Many blessings for your weekend.

What tools did you use to create them? And do you know what tools did Andre use for his sounds (if different)? I would like to create some similar short sounds for punctuation marks...

Tony,

I created them along with Andre Louis.

I did the startup/shutdown sounds and he did the rest.

Do you know how these sounds were made or where do they come from? For my phonetic punctuation add-on I'm looking for more of these short and distinctive sounds to replace punctuation with.

Hello everyone,

some years ago the sounds of NVDA should have been renewed, but were discarded.

Do any of you still have these sounds and could you send them to me?

Thank you very much in advance and best regards Ali

I didn’t notice which list the message was directed to when I wrote my last message.  Since you are using NVDA, the letter k is the move by link command.

There is a folder called waves.  The new sounds are just other wave files.  They are placed in a folder with the same name in the same location as the old waves file now is.

I'm running a installed version. They are still in my downloaded folder.
Are you saying they go where all the Windows event wav

  sounds are?
