AH. I haven't tried that one given my distrust of most QT apps. I find them all to be somewhat clunky. However, if it works for you... :)

Hi all.

Just noticed this in the 2019.3 version of nvda.

I am using latest windows 19.9 build 815, I have noticed that when you get either a notification from windows security or something in start or get any notification at all, that has it up in a window, then you go to activation centre to clear it, while it clears there is a notification window which is empty by the way just staying there on screen.

Restarting nvda doesn't usually fix it and I have to reboot to make the thing stop.

Nvda states in the log that it is a os error and a live region error.

Is this an issue with windows or an nvda issue.

If this is a issue with windows does it exist on the 2004 rc at this time or not.

If not then  I will just update when it comes time to do so as usual.

Its not a big showstopper but I have had it appear on multiple devices, on builds of windows 10 from 1903 up and I have seen it on 18 xx builds to.

Not as much but it does happen.

I think it has to do with if the notification is focused or not but mostly I don't even dismiss the notifications or move them to action centre, I just clear them out after reading.

I guess I could just turn them all off but if I do that I won't get messages and that could be a problem in of itself.

I've retitled the topic so it might get additional attention.  If someone can't help you here, consider asking on the PhonesForTheBlind group, as there are a lot of iPhone users there and iTunes has been discussed relatively frequently.

A JAWS dictionary line has the fields, in order:  Actual word|Replacement Word|Language (0x09-English)|Synthesizer|Voice|Language (0 is default)|Case sensitive (0 - No, 1 -Yes)

Re: Converting JAWS Dictionaries

 

Pele,

            None that I know of.  But the structure of the NVDA dictionary files is very, very simple.  If you happen to have a JAWS dictionary file that you can e-mail me as an attachment, I might be able to whip something up, though I won't guarantee it.  I don't know how Freedom Scientific lays out the JAWS dictionary files, and that's where the sticking point might be.  But if they're plain text like the NVDA dictionaries are, it shouldn't be all that difficult to figure out how to convert.

            It's going to be a long, rainy day here, so this might be a fun task to try.  By the way, anyone who has a JAWS dictionary file they're willing to share should feel free to e-mail it to me as an attachment using the Reply to Sender link at the end of this message.

Re: A question about Vocalizer

Sylvie Duchateau
 

Hello,

In addition to what Rui said, from a non commercial point of view, it depends on what you are looking for.

As I work in different languages, English, French, German, after I have tested both products, I prefer using Tiflotecnia's voices, as language switching works fine.

I also had the impression that the voices from code factory were less responsive.

If you like the eloquence synthesiser, you'd better take Code Factory's solution as you get the eloquence voices and the nuance voices.

Best

Sylvie

Once you adjusted the volume does the voice behave ok?

I don't have any SAPI 4 voices anymore to check.

Look like Microsoft AP 4 has few issues with NVDA of latest version.
