Larry,

I'm a bit confused by your message as addons for NVDA don't have a .man extension. Have you downloaded 1.6.2 from this page?

Re: end of the line for finereader

Congratulations

I had to ring Sight and Sound in the UK when I had problems installing version 13 and they were insistent that it was not supported in Windows 10 and that I had to purchase the upgrade to version 14.

I cannot remember now what would not work in version 13 but in my case it was unusable.

Hi David,

 

I’m using Kurzweil 13.4 on my Windows 10 system. I had to go to the Kurzweil site and download a patch to update version 13 to 13.4, also there was a set of instructions I had to follow when installing the patch. I called Kurzweil support to ensure I was doing everything correctly. I was told that 13.4 may not work after a major update but I’m currently up to the latest 1909, waiting for 2004, and Kurzweil is still working.

Kurzweil version 14 is working here on Windows 10 but versions before that, such as 13 etc most definitely did not. I had to uprade from 13 to get functionality.

Don’t know .kurzweil 1000 has not been updated  since 14. Since  the  developer of Kurzweil 1000 for the blind has retired. they are still keeping Kurzweil 3000 product around. Maybe download  a trial of  that and see how it works.   The other  thing I can think of is open book by VFO or omni page .but with omni page I have not tried and don’t know how  well it will work .

Hi all.

 

Well, looks like fine reader just had a name change since I have gotten it.

 

It seems to be called fine reader 15 pdf now.

 

Since support and abbyy don't seem to deem it important to fix the accessibility issues and since it all seems locked to business now I think it is time for me to cut my losses and upgrade.

 

The last version was released at the end of the year.

 

What ocr program should I use instead of abbyy fine reader.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Re: Image describer addon download link is showing error

 

See my message from last year:  https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/message/60898 

I would contact the developer of the add-on.  If you look at the actual error message content, whether via the add-ons community link or his own website, it indicates that things are inaccessible because his bill has not been paid.  He may, or may not, be aware of this.  I'd bet on "may," but it's possible it's just something that slipped through the cracks that he'd forgotten about.

Re: switching sound cards with NVDA

Deenadayalan Moodley
 

Hi,

 

Use a utility called SoundVolumeView. It allows you to save soundcard profiles and to reload these.  You then can setup a shortcut key to load your profile when you need to change. The application is portable and does not need to be installed.

 

soundvolumeview.exe /loadprofile laptop.spr

 

Create a desktop shortcut and assign a key to it.

 

Thanks.

Re: Scanner Software and Printer

I’m still using finereader pro version 9, under Win10 2004 64bit, I bought it on Amazon for about $20. What I want to say is, if the 15 version is broken for us, then buy an older version.

 

Cheers,

Because finereader 15 has really slow menu access with nvda which support was able to reproduce.

The last update was the end of last year and I put the ticket in on january well could have been just before that.

They havn't fixed it and I am tired of waiting.

I use my ocr software mainly for paper documents that are not electronic.

These are a few bills and letters and while 80% of them are email there are still a bunch of things I need to print and I have decided I can wait no longer.

For what I do I don't need the best mainstream software, I need stable and accessible software.

I waited for ages and even let it go because of the virus in my country but after getting some notes on the latest end of life on flash and getting rid of it and shockwave I decided to revisit all the stored notes for the year past and found that.

I actually would have prefered to continue mainstream.

But I have just spent 160 dollars on text cloner pro and I have no regrets, and I'm never going back to abbyy at least not on my own machine.

Becides for the price I pay I get a spellchecker, dictionary and a miniture word processer all in the same package.

And premier may actually have other bits of software I may come back for at some point.

I know mainstream is usually the way but after switching from something to something made with standard guidelines and controls, I can't say I want to move.

For one thing the program is faster loading.

For another the installer was 90mb in size not 500mb, the program itself is only just over 130mb in size.

The program uses the iris engine.

I did have and use iris software when I had an older scanner and it was ok.

Iris itself costs a lot less than abbyy does well especially on the deal I had but access on the actual program just wasn't good not on the full version.

I can't see myself paying for a bigger program even if its issues are solved.

Pluss so far I have had no support delays at all.

And while there are a few really small issues with a shortcut and part of the installer its basically it.

I am sure they will get fixed and there will be not much of a delay in getting things done.

It can work on any screen reader and while it did cost a little, it cost slightly less than a fine reader upgrade, and certainly a lot less than a full version of abbyy fine reader.

Pluss as I said I just don't want to wait anymore.

When I have had issues I have had to sometimes wait a month for any reply and other friends have even had issues with finereader 14.

With the way windows is going I need something that will stay updated without changing itself so it becomes hard to use.

Pluss it loads fast, and there are no frills.

Its just a word processer with a few extras in its menus it even auto detected my scanner.

Re: about audio related issue on bluetooth headset

 

Hmmm well do you have the latest drivers and software installed.

Could be an incompatability issue I guess.

Is the sets firmware updated.

Have you rebooted the set lately.

And are its battery cells charged could be either.

Re: audio ducking

I think everyone else has you covered there, but just two points:

1) Here's the user guide section on the Synthesizer dialog which includes audio ducking: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#SelectSynthesizer

2) Audio ducking only works when NVDA is installed, and only on Windows 8 and Windows 10.

All the best

Re: Braille input focus 40 blue 5th gen and NVDA

Hi Justin,

I haven't got a Focus 40 myself, but it should certainly work with NVDA.  Here is the section from our user guide on the Focus and other Freedom Scientific displays: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#FreedomScientificFocus

If you want to reassign any of the default key assignments, you can do that in NVDA with NVDA's Input Gestures dialog: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#InputGestures

Kind regards

Quentin.

I'm trying to learn about the braille display offerings out there to get a sense of a good match. I was recommended to take a look at the focus 40 blue fifth-generation. I read through their documentation and it almost sort of sounds like according to the brochure the ability to input braille is limited to when you are using JAWS, but when I look at the online manual from the company, it vaguely seems like any screenreader that supports braille input would work. Has anyone successfully used the focus 40 blue with NVDA to input braille?
