themselves were corrupted and jarte crashed.

I then tried docx.


Every document I had which was quite old my word 95 files for example,
were blank.

This converter aint for me.

I have jarte which I payed for, which does everything I want.

Sadly I may have to get libre office or ms office or something so I can
read the files, I have a system with libre office and the files are read
fine enough, and I hardly need them, but if there is another document
converter even ifits a low cost office thing I'll try that.

This one just is not serving my purpose.

I also had a little trouble accessing it and in fact the rest of the

I wander if there are document converters in the ms store.

Re: A few questions

Quentin Christensen
 

Are you saying that if you are using OneCore as your default synthesizer, if you create a profile for say, Word, which uses eSpeak, if you are using Word, and open an NVDA dialog (eg NVDA+control+g to change settings), NVDA then changes to OneCore while working in the NVDA dialog?  If so, that is expected - the profile is triggered by the current program - in this case, the program has changed to NVDA so it uses the configuration profile set for NVDA itself (the normal profile unless you've set an NVDA specific profile).  Similarly, in the same situation, if you alt+tab from one Word window to another word window (holding alt down long enough to show the alt+tab window) - the voice will revert to OneCore while reading that alt+tab dialog, as that is a different program, even though conceptually you are moving from one Microsoft Word window to another.

Hello Quentin,

NVDA automatically switches between synthesizers when I have more than one configuration profiles.  For example, If I have set One Core as my synthesizer, then NVDA will automatically switch to Espeak when I interact with my Windows and related applications. It goes back to One Core when I’m interacting with NVDA settings itself, reading a document or while browsing the internet.   The situation is similar with any synthesizer set as default. And, I can observe this same issue on NVDA 19.2.1 installed on my system and NVDA 20.1 which I sometimes use as a portable version. I reported the issue once on this list and was told by someone that the code for configuration profile is buggy. It would be great if you could help in any way.

All:

I have searched rather diligently, with no success, for an NVDA function that I saw, a couple of years back, was under development/consideration for either an NVDA feature or an add-on.

I do not see it anywhere in the NVDA manual or the tutorial, and I see no add-on with a title or description of this functionality.

I hope I’m just inept as a searcher.

I’m looking for the ability to recognize capital letters, not just when reading by letter—I know that functionality is present—but rather, the ability to recognize when words are capitalized (or in solid capital letters) when reading by line, by paragraph, or in say-all.

Presently, I have to switch to JAWS for this functionality, and it is so absolutely crucial that it must be, at least, under development in some add-on.  In fact, this functionality is the only reason I keep JAWS installed.

Surely others find the absence of this functionality a serious matter.  Perhaps we could pool our resources to pay a clever add-on developer to create it?

Thanks!

Well then, Uninstall Express Scribe. Then reinstall it as though you are going to use it as a free trial. Try it and see if it is user friendly with NVDA. If it is. Then purchase it.  I don’t know how long the free trial would be. I’d make use of it during the free time. If you find it’s user friendly. Then buy it.

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?

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

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.

I had a long chat session with the Adobe help team some time ago.

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.

Perhaps we could ask Microsoft and other manufacturers of editing programs to examine their processes for creating PDF files and see how this might arise.

 

All the best,

Subject: [nvda] pdfs with all words crammed against the next word with no spaces between

 

I have a pdf I need to read.  I tried but as the subject says everything is crammed together or at least that is how NVDA reads it.

 

Does anyone know of a way to straighten this out?

 

Thanks.

Re: Golden Cursor and Gold wave add-on for NVDA 19.2.1

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.

Dan,

            If the content of said file is not private, please e-mail me a copy and I'll see what I can do.  And if it's something that doesn't require massive gyrations I'll post the steps I used if I can fix it.

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.

By coincidence, I was dealing with this topic today, actually! All you need to do is:
