Hi

Perhaps if you contact Codefactory and explain what software you have and what you want it to run on, they will be able to tell you what you need to do and what, if any,  costs are involved in getting it working.

 

https://codefactoryglobal.com/contact-us/

 

Cheers

Chris

For those of you who already have NVDA’s Acapela voices, if God forbid I were to be in this situation, but it’s always good to know just in case: how would one recover an activation key (out of the 3 given when purchasing), if the computer on which the license is activated, suddenly dies, without loosin the key in the process, thus being unable to deactivate that machine’s key, through NVDA/Acapela voices/License Management? If I let that key go, when I get the computer repaired and returned back to me and upon activating Acapela again on that same machine especially if he computer needs to be reformatted), I’d e using up Activation Key #2; hence having one left for emmergencies! Is there a website I could go to, and manage my activation keys without depending on the machine on which the key is activated, to deactivate it? I wouldn’t want to loos any activations unnecessarily. Thanks for info.

Re: Focus Issues on Facebook Desktop Site Using Firefox

Oh that’s awful!   How does Chrome work with facebook? I’m using the Ipad I share with my room mate. I find facebook is easier with the I pad.  I’ve never tried it on windows ten yet. That’s why I’m asking how well does it work with either Microsoft edge or Chrome?

Hi from me,


You say that you happen to face it on Firefox. I face it on Google
Chrome. That's to say, when I come upon the like button in the reactions
toolbar area while in the browse mode, NVDA automatically switches to
the focus mode. And then, when I hit escape as you do, NVDA's focus is
thrown somewhere else. To get rid of the inconveniences, I go to the
NVDA menu, choose the advanced submenu, and then tab to the
automatically set system focus to focusable elements to uncheck it just
to stop NVDA's focus skipping of its own accord. When I do that, I can
use www.facebook.com much better when I walk through the reactions area
and the comments area.


Both Chrome and NVDA are the latest versions (NVDA being the latest
stable).

Re: Focus Issues on Facebook Desktop Site Using Firefox

Are you already in forms mode and have you tabbed to where you want to be? If you have first moved there in browse mode, then pressed enter. you may be in the wrong place because the browse mode buffer may not be lining up with the actual page, where you are when you switch to browse mode.

My suggestions may not help. Some pages don't work properly no matter what you do, but what I'm suggesting may make some pages useful.

You might also achieve success by trying another browser and screen-reader.

Re: how to enable one core voices in windows ten to use with nvda?

Hi

On Windows 10 2004 and NVDA 2020.1, loading a language pack makes the related OneCore voices available.  I just had the UK english language pack loaded but wanted the OneCore Mark voice, so I loaded US English language pack and the voice became available to NVDA along with 3 other voices.  No registry tweaks necessary.

Re: NVDA Portable - What are the differences when using it?

 

from nvda user guide.
3. Getting and Setting Up NVDA
If you have not yet got a copy of NVDA, you can download it from
www.nvaccess.org.
Go to the download section and you will find a link to download the
latest version of NVDA.
Running the file you have just downloaded will start a temporary copy
of NVDA. You will then be asked if you want to install NVDA, create a
portable copy or just continue using the temporary copy.
If you plan to always use NVDA on this computer, you will want to
choose to install NVDA. Installing NVDA will allow for additional
functionality such as automatic starting after logon, the ability to
read the Windows Logon and Windows security screens (which cannot be
done with portable and temporary copies) and creation of Start Menu
and desktop shortcuts. The installed copy is also able to create a
portable copy itself at any time.
If you want to take NVDA with you on a USB thumb drive or other
writable media, then you should choose to create a portable copy. The
portable copy also has the ability to install itself on any computer
at a later time. However, if you wish to copy NVDA onto read-only
media such as a CD, you should just copy the download package. Running
the portable version directly from read-only media is not supported at
this time.
Using the temporary copy of NVDA is also an option (e.g. for
demonstration purposes), though starting NVDA in this way each time
can become very time consuming.
3.1. Portable and Temporary Copy Restrictions
Apart from the inability to automatically start during and/or after
log-on, the portable and temporary copies of NVDA also have the
following restrictions:
• The inability to interact with applications running with
administrative privileges, unless of course NVDA itself has been run
also with these privileges (not recommended).
• The inability to read User Account Control (UAC) screens when trying
to start an application with administrative privileges.
• Windows 8 and later: the inability to support input from a touch screen.
• Windows 8 and later: the inability to provide features such as
browse mode and speaking of typed characters in Windows Store apps.
• Windows 8 and later: audio ducking is not supported.
3.3. Creating a Portable Copy
If creating a portable copy directly from the NVDA download package,
simply press the Create Portable Copy button. If you have already
closed this dialog or you are running an installed copy of NVDA,
choose the Create Portable copy menu item found under Tools in the
NVDA menu.
The Dialog that appears allows you to choose where the portable copy
should be created. This can be a directory on your hard drive or a
location on a USB thumb drive or other portable media. There is also
an option to choose whether NVDA should copy the logged on user's
current NVDA configuration for use with the newly created portable
copy. This option is only available when creating a portable copy from
an installed copy, not when creating from the download package.
Pressing Continue will create the portable copy. Once creation is
complete, a message will appear telling you it was successful. Press
OK to dismiss this dialog.

nvda not reading arrow presses randomly

I actually do not know if this is random or not random. however I noticed after I used thunderbird I could not in let's say discord read the letters and stuff I typed with nvda. I could select words as it read that, I think. I can't really say steps to reproduce. I'm using NonVisual

A reboot of NVDA seems to fix the problem until it happens again.

experience would be compared to that of the recent version (2020.1).
However, with Windows 10, at least one Windows OneCore voice should be on
your system right out of the box. Pressing NVDA+Control+S, then scrolling
down to Windows OneCore voices should do the trick. I notice that you keep
on asking about an earlier version of NVDA, where there have been several
changes and improvements since that release, especially where the OneCore
voices are concerned. If you insist on using this version, I highly doubt
anyone would or even could provide assistance with it, as it is very old,
and a large majority of users have presumably updated this version from a
long time ago. Therefore, knowing this, it would be best for you to stop
wasting your time asking about it, but this is just my opinion.

source and free, to perform optical character recognition to an image
document, whether PDF, JPG, TIF or other, without having to open the
document.
It also can uses a scanner as origin of the material to be recognized.

where
you can configure the language to be used for recognition.

jp2
gif
jfif
jpeg
tiff
spix
webp

## Commands
The command to start the character recognition process is:
Shift + NVDA + r for documents on your PC
Control + Shift + NVDA + r to recognize documents through scanning.

Then just wait for the 1.pdf file to open.
If you want to preserve the recognized text, be sure to save the
document
under another name and in another location, as all files in the
temporary
folder are deleted at the end of the process!

## Known issues
* This version only works on Windows 10 64-bit systems.

* If a folder does not have, at the beginning of the full path, the
reference to the drive letter, as, for example, in Windows 10 with the
Documents, Downloads, etc. folders, the add-on cannot determine the full
path of the file, and so you will not be able to perform optical
character
recognition.
This is a known Windows problem and, as far as I know, cannot be solved.
An alternative is to open the folder through the Start menu ... Just
type
the name of the folder until NVDA announces what we want ...

You can grab it at:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/wrqdabkl9sqplfl/NAPS2TesseractOCR.nvda-addon?dl=1


Sorry, it is not yet perfect, but it works and it is free!
Please, do not discuss it with any other person by now...

Best regards,

'amharic is available as ocr language'? are you telling me that I can
ocr Amharic documents? how? because, when I go to nvda setting windows
10 ocr and choose language, I find only english language in the
cambobox.

Hi lovely guys
I always try to have nvda recognize image or scanned documents with
insert+r. I don't get any result though. but, in jaws, when I press
insert + space, o, c, I hear a kind of bip sound to let me know that
the recognition is in process. it also lets me know when it finishes
recognizing the document. I don't get the same in nvda although I
press insert +r. it is dead silence. does this nvda OCR recognition
really work.

Re: Focus Issues on Facebook Desktop Site Using Firefox

You might stop the entire problem by turning automatic switching tbetween browse mode and focus mode off. Just one more example of too much automation and why it is better to switch between these states manually.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Focus Issues on Facebook Desktop Site Using Firefox

Hi from me,


You say that you happen to face it on Firefox. I face it on Google
Chrome. That's to say, when I come upon the like button in the reactions
toolbar area while in the browse mode, NVDA automatically switches to
the focus mode. And then, when I hit escape as you do, NVDA's focus is
thrown somewhere else. To get rid of the inconveniences, I go to the
NVDA menu, choose the advanced submenu, and then tab to the
automatically set system focus to focusable elements to uncheck it just
to stop NVDA's focus skipping of its own accord. When I do that, I can
use www.facebook.com much better when I walk through the reactions area
and the comments area.


Both Chrome and NVDA are the latest versions (NVDA being the latest
stable).

Hello. Is the subject apt for anyone else but me? I am having many focus issues on the Facebook desktop site, using NVDA alpha-20400,675c4c54. I"m using Firefox 77.0.1 on Windows 10 version 1909 Build 18363.900. I've had focus issues for quite some time. Here are latest issues. I will do my best to describe.


When I read posts, I use browse mode, pressing "h" to move from heading to heading. If I want to like a post, I navigate to the like button. When I press enter on it, it appears to be stuck in the reactions area. If I press escape, I am thrown somewhere else on the page.


I try to comment on a post I liked, and it has me doing things to the reactions. I hit the escape key and again, I"m thrown somewhere else on the page. I hope I can help you all solve this one. It is annoying, to say the least.
