Trying to get a hold of AudioTheme iPhone package?

Gerardo Corripio
 

I was made aware on my Spanish NVDA Whatsapp group of the availability of the “AudioThemes” AddOn whose info follows

Audio Themes (audiothemes)

Versión: 6.0

Autor: Musharraf Omer<ibnomer2011@...>

Descripción: This add-on creates a virtual audio display that plays sounds when focusing or

navigating objects, the audio will be played in a location that corresponds to the object's

location in the visual display. The add-on also enables you to add, remove, edit, create, and

distribute audio theme packages.

Dirección: https://mush42.github.io/audio-themes/

And I went into the site provided, but I can’t find how I could get a hold of ioS sounds! If anyone of you guys happen to have to share, more and one would surely appreciate! Thanks for any download info.

By the way, I have retitled this topic to, "Unspoken Add-On, Ported to python 3, compatible with NVDA 2019.3 & later" so that the subject matter is entirely clear and it's easier to find in archive searches. Please post any ongoing responses using this message, or another with the new title, as the base for the response.

Unspoken reacts faster than audiothemes.

Thanks. We will try and let you know.

If you make sure the check box for typed characters is checked, then you will hear each character as it is typed. If you check both character and word checkboxes, you'd hear each character as you press it, followed by the word after pressing a space or punctuation symbol.

Hope that helps,

Thunderbird Verbosity Issue: Please move to Chat Subgroup

 

Hello All,

            Although the recent issues with Thunderbird and excessive verbosity are displaying themselves with NVDA, it's been pretty clearly determined that this is not an NVDA problem, and will not be fixed by NVDA.  And while I realize the ongoing progress about this is of interest to many, including myself, it certainly is not of interest to all, nor is it about NVDA, but Thunderbird.

            Please move all further conversation regarding this particular issue to the Chat Subgroup.  When a fix is released, if someone has received it and knows the version, please send that information to nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io and an announcement regarding the fix having gone out will be made.

Hi Jim

It’s a series of keystrokes enabling you to alter aspects of the current synthesizer settings on the fly.  You hold down NVDA+Control, then left/right arrows give you access to Volume, voice, rate, rate boost and pitch then loops back to volume, hence the “ring” analogy.  Once you have selected one of the above controls, still holding down the NVDA+Control keys, use up/down arrows to adjusct the parameter for that control.

Cheers

I don’t know why, but using the ring only lowers speech and has no effect on NVDA sounds.  I expected the ring and the dialog setting to do the same thing, but the settings aren’t identical in what they do.

Weird! I'll have to go and try that because I'd think lowering the
volume with the synth ring would do the exact same thing. Maybe they are
lowered, but if so they're still significantly louder than speech. It's
also good to know that with the sound off focus changes will be
announced verbally, since I've never messed with that. Thanks all!


Oh yeah, I'm watching a video music lesson. Here it is on Youtube.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mz1I4Nc9iV0


I'm doing it from their website because I just started paying for all
the lessons, but the volume's all the way up. He's just kind of quiet.
Other lessons are louder so they're fine. So I can lower speech
currently and turn him up and get a good volume, but you have to go into
focus mode to start the video playing, and those sounds are louder than
everything else. Now I have a couple ways of fixing it, and I'll bet one
of them will work.

nvda and newer thunderbird

 

Hi.

Well effected thunderbird versions with the statusbar issue include beta 71 and 68 esr.

There is a thunderbird 72 beta 2 out, chances are the fix is in this for the beta channel.

Now we just need to wait for it to be backported to stable.

Hopefully now we are in the live user stable ish branch we should see something soon.

Re: Using WhatsApp on The Computer

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi Bhavya Shah


I wrote a tutorial for the web version but have not put it on my website.


You will need a mobile phone with whats app on

You will need to change some settings so it points to the web version and you will need to scan in a I think it is a qr code then it will sign you in.

Your phone is used to do this but needs to be pointed towards the monitor.


Do not do my trick I do not have the monitor on and thought I had turned it on maybe off then scanned the QR code but would not sign me in the reason was the monitor was off as confirmed by the wife.

Guess that is life.


when you are in there you can use nvda to jump around and chat with your friends and or read there messages.


At the time I did it I do not think it could do audio or video chats so just left it on the computer. I was sure my camera is working but could not see any settings at that time to add a camera//mike or maybe it just can not do it as not part of the software yet.


I had just started using the mobile version so hoped it would work with my video camera/mic on the computer.


It is a rough draft but think it was finished off but can not remember if it covered groups as it could get confusing? depending how it was done.

I have not been back in lately to see if it has been added or tried another camera/mic just in case.


Let us know if you want a copy of it I can post as is but a more polished copy will go on my website when I get a little time free.

Just come in from getting the deck rails sanded, clean etc and have it ready to paint which she is doing now.

Time for a coffee and a rest.
