Re: speaking commands

Rui Fontes
 

Quentin, have you already tried to work with NVDA in those conditions?


NVDA needs, urgently, a way to filter some keypresses from being announced...


See issues #5484, #5608 and many more...

If you press NVDA+4, or toggle "Speak command keys" in NVDA's keyboard settings, it will speak keys such as ENTER or CONTROL+S.

NVDA doesn't automatically know that CONTROL+S is save, so it generally won't automatically announce that, however if the keystroke brings up something like a save dialog, then that would be announced (for instance the first time you press control+s in a new document in Word).

Not directly related to control+s, but there is a "clipspeak" add-on which will report the functions of some keys such as control+c (Copy) and control+v (paste) where they perform those functions: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/clipspeak.en.html

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: speaking commands

Chris Mullins
 

                Hi Grant

There is already a setting in NVDA which enables the speaking of commands, it is NVDA+4 on the number row.  If you use Notepad with Windows 10, there is a handy little feature which indicates if you have made any unsaved changes to the file you are working with.  If you press NVDA+t to speak the window title, you may hear the word “star” spoken before the title text is read.  This is because Notepad puts an asterisk on the title bar if the related file contains unsaved changes.  This asterisk is not present if the file does not contain unsaved changes.

 

Cheers

Chris

you can use 'nvda extention global add-on'.  it has wonderful features

including speaking of commands. it is a private add-on though.

Re: windows ten and nvda 2017 versions:

Luke, Arlene here. I had both versions of NVDA 17.2 all the way to 19 something. But when my windows 7 died I lost all versions.  The one I did get back was NVDA 19 something.  I didn’t think it would work for windows ten not unless like you said if you were testing addons. It would probably work. I would have given it to Zarah but I lost it when my 7 lost audio and died.  I did have it on a thumb drive but when I loaned the drive to my room mate while she was helping her mom they deleted it thinking it would not work for win ten.  They installed the 19 version on her mom’s ten box just as they did mine. Oh well. That’s how it goes.

Re: windows ten and nvda 2017 versions:

 

Hi all,
To settle the matter for my add-ons and to answer possible questions:
* Can I run current add-ons on older NVDA releases: technically, yes;
practically speaking, no. This is more so if you are using an older NVDA
release that doesn't include a feature that is desperately needed by current
add-ons (Python syntax differences and libraries, for example). In case of
any add-ons I'm maintaining, unless otherwise noted, there is a limit as to
how old an NVDA release you can use with add-ons. For all practical
purposes, my add-ons require NVDA 2019.3 or later for proper functionality.
* Does NVDA 2017.3 run on Windows 10: yes and no. The first version to
support Windows 10 properly was 2015.3 (I championed for it then). Does this
mean 2017.3 works on modern Windows 10? Yes to some degree. What about
versions such as May 2019 Update? No because certain features, namely proper
support for modern input features, came with later NVDA releases. How about
Chromium Edge? NVDA 2017.3 does not properly support it - the only Edge it
is familiar with is the one that is, for all practical purposes, end of
life.
* As a follow-up, will you (Joseph) make add-ons so NVDA 2017.3 users can
use more modern Windows 10 features: a year ago I would have thought about
it. Today, despite calls for this, my answer is no. We have gotten to a
point where we cannot cross the "ocean" to return to the old world,
particularly more so since NVDA 2019.3.
Cheers,
Joseph

Win 10 version 1909.

Ok looking at your log, there are a few errors with various add-ons.  I think not all are compatible with NVDA 2020.2 (or even Python 3?) That is why it is working when you restart with add-ons disabled.  If you disable all add-ons and re-enable one at a time until you start hitting errors you will be able to narrow down which add-ons are causing problems.
