Re: What do You prefer to write Docs, Presentations, or Spreadsheets with NVDA

David Moore
 

thank you very much! I have a lot of old documents that were made in Microsoft office 2000 and 2003 that have the d o c format. I have wanted to convert those into the docx docs for a long time and I've wondered how I would do that I will check this out and see if it works. Can you do more documents Dan one-at-a-time it sounds like it'll convert multiple documents, is this easy to figure out just by tinkering with it? Is this a computer only program have a great one guys!

Re: pdfs with all words crammed against the next word with no spaces between

Dan,

 

Here is a message that I sent out in 2016 about this issue:

I had a long chat session with the Adobe help team yesterday.

It seems that the problem arises when a document created in some other editor is saved as PDF this problem can arise resulting in spaces not appearing to be standard ones under ISO (or ASCII 32).

With the help of the Adobe support team, I used adobe Acrobat Pro DC to reprocess the offending document by printing it as Adobe and saving the output document to the hard disk rather than actually printing it. The spaces were all present and no misspellings occurred.

The help team assured me that this problem arises from outside editors and not from within Adobe. Therefore, Adobe can do nothing about it.

 

This worked today. However, I cannot get it to do the job tonight! Strange!

 

I dont have Acrobat Pro DC on my machine. I will have to download a sample of this program and try again.

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Thanks for the idea.  I just tried to do this using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and I can't seem to get it right.  All I get is a blank file.

 

Can you tell me what settings you used?

 

Thanks.

That's my first thought, even if you're using Adobe Reader DC as the reader.

Under Windows 10 there is a built-in virtual printer, Microsoft print to PDF, that is generally used to create a PDF from another program, like MS-Word or Notepad, etc.  It is, however, available for "printing to" from any program, including Reader DC.  So you would be running your existing PDF file through a virtual printer that creates PDF files to see if that resolves the issue.

I generally use the program PDF Creator as my virtual printer of choice, but that's just habit from before Microsoft print to PDF existed.

Hi


I have it on drop box for the earlier version that will work on that version. The link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/xy3k2rbufpzc5h3/goldenCursor-3.4.nvda-addon?dl=1


The gold wave one is at https://www.dropbox.com/s/ec7d60ut9p6zwln/goldwave-19.04.nvda-addon?dl=1

Hopefully I did not accidentally put in the wrong ones.


I have 2 folders or drop box links on my website now one is for earlier add ons before 2019.2 and another for ones after nvda 2019.3 and onwards.


I need to change it so it automatically downloads when you click on a file but have not tried it with a folder


At present it brings up a list of add ons then after you click on one it might want you to play which it can not or download it.


I will see if I can change later on tonight.

SpeechHub NVDA add-on for version 2019.3.1 and later

Isaac Porat
 

Hello


SpeechHub NVDA add-on for versions 2019.3.1 and later is available.

This add-on does nothing unless SpeechHub itself is installed.

With this add-on installed SpeechHub voices are available to NVDA in the usual way.

Please note that SpeechHub itself was not updated for a while; the hub itself is highly reliable and the open source synthesizers  work within their strengths and limitations as explained below.

I use it myself all the time and people including some on this list asked me to notify them when an add-on compatible with recent NVDA versions is available.


SpeechHub is an internal server that runs automatically on your computer. The hub provides text and audio processing augmenting as necessary or providing an alternative to the processing provided by the synthesizers themselves.

By default SpeechHub comes with three open source synthesizers and two SAPI 5 connectors.


Among the three open source synthesizers it supports by default the most interesting one is MaryTTS.

This synthesizer probably provides the best human like voices available as open source and to my knowledge SpeechHub is the only  system that can facilitate the use of these voices with a screen reader.

Single characters processing such as key echo etc is less good but

some people enjoy these voices for continuous reading.

These voices are available only in English.


The SAPI 5 connector uses unconventional interface processing audio allow better response for utterances produced frequently and higher speeds with some slow voices.

This connector works well with some synthesizers but less well with others.


A guide to why you might want to use SpeechHub is available, note that it is a bit out of date in that most computers these days should be able to work with these voices easily.

A guide for installing SpeechHub and its NVDA add-on is available at

Re: And finally, Add-on Updater 20.06 #addonrelease

 

Hi,

Using the current infrastructure, the best way is letting NVDA query a table of add-on identifiers and versions, which must be updated whenever new add-ons are registered and updates are released (still a manual intervention). Note that this fails for add-ons that receive updates from websites other than GitHub and ones that come with their own update mechanism. All this will change once add-ons store idea becomes reality, which will also make Add-on Updater and update mechanisms in other add-ons obsolete.

Cheers,

Joseph

Is there a way this can be somewhat automated so you don't have to add every new add on that gets posted to the community website?


Re: And finally, Add-on Updater 20.06 #addonrelease

 

Well joseph I guess with this latest addon most things are ready for the next feature update I think we have a week left before it goes.

It sounds really sollid.

Hi all,

 

Add-on Updater 20.06 is now available. As an add-on that has gone through one of the most changes as a result of Flake8, along with not breaking update facility for other add-ons, this add-on became the last one to get 20.06. As always, Add-on Updater 20.06 is available through community add-ons website, or ironically enough, through Add-on Updater itself.

 

And with that, I’m taking a break from NVDA add-ons world for a while. The next releases will be done in July.

Cheers,

Joseph
