Joseph,

I know that you know that your NVDA fans will miss you and the thoughtful respectful support that you have given all of us for a long time. You have solved so many of my NVDA issues with a single post.

 

However, and not knowing your graduate program field, I would agree with those who have recommended stepping back from your support work until you have a clear sense of what the next step in your education will demand.  Advice comes from someone who has done multiple trips back to the classroom. These have each provided me with the lesson that in every case, the new step starts off demanding more than is expected. You can always discover that you do have time and then you can choose to return to your NVDA fans, or just use the packets of time to get all you can from the new program.

 

Best of luck and have fun with the next step,

Rick and General, Guide Dog Extraordinaire

Hi,

I’m very close to finishing my undergraduate degree and am planning to apply to graduate school. Based on conversations with people, graduate education is more difficult and will take a lot of my time. Because I spend quite a lot of time working on NVDA and add-ons, I knew that I have to give it up if I’m to succeed in education. Such is life.

Cheers,

Joseph

Actually I didn't catchup with all the conversations since sometime hence asking, why are you stepping back from NVDA world and community?

I'm sorry if my question seems irrelevant.

Hi,

There are replacements such as Audio Themes. Also, the NVDA pull request associated with it (for NVDA issue 2559), while useful, wasn’t really ready. Besides, it has become clear to me that in order to prepare for the next stage in my life (graduate school), I need to let go of NVDA, and letting go of add-ons that are effectively end of life is just one stage of this process (I thought about this decision for a long time). I know that we have people who can take good care of this add-on in the future.

Hi

My settings are: synth set to beep if capital letter, speak typed characters off, speak typed words on.



This does not beep when typing CAPITAL LETTERS, either with capslock on or when using shift with caps lock off. Using shift with caps lock on does produce a beep. In other words, the synthesizer setting that indicates capital letters only works when typing if Speak typed characters is on.



I'm using Windows 10 2004 and NVDA 2020.2

It does it when speak words is on or off as well, so the screen-reader could

be silent and it would still beep.

It should still beep when typing a lowercase letter with caps lock on - so

if you have double pressed the caps lock key and caps lock is on. If you

then press SHIFT and type a letter (which will come out lowercase) NVDA will

beep.



In NVDA'S speech settings there is an option "Beep for capitals". With that

on whenever you arrow to a capital or type a capital letter, NVDA will beep,

however it only does this when reading the letter, so it only reads when

typing, if speak typed characters is enabled.

Yes that is the way it works.  I can see the use of wanting beeps for capitals even with speak typed chars off.  It would be worth writing up an issue if you are keen:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues

Hello everyone

I am dealing with a difficult situation. I just installed to the latest version of NVDA. This was an update from a much earlier version, as I delayed updating since there was not a compatible version of the dictation bridge at the time.

my vocalizer plug-in stopped working. I went to the tiflotechnia website to download the latest version of the plug-in, which after I installed it, said it was not compatible. I then completely removed the vocalizer plugging along with the synthesizers.

When I was trying to use the screen reader with e speak, it randomly would crash. I would go into fire fox, type in a search, the results would load and I would start trying to navigate through the headings and we get no response. I would press alt tab, and no response. 

I then uninstalled the screen reader bygoing into the settings, under applications, and clicking uninstall. I assume that activates the same uninstall file in the program files folder. At this point I was using narrator.

 I restarted the computer,  And ran the installer again. When the installation was complete, I was having the same issues. I am not past this point now. Whenever I try to run NVDA, It quickly goes silent after a simple task like bringing up the run dialogue and attempting to type something in. The speech becomes unresponsive, though I can still tab around the applications and open the start menu. 

Can somebody help?

NVDA and OPENVPN?

Brian Buhrow
 

hello. I'm wondering if someone on this list can help me understand
what I'm doing wrong with OpenVPN. Here is a description of the trouble
I'm having.

I've tried installing Openvpn-2.4.4 or OpenVPN-2.5Beta, Windows 64-bit
version on my Windows 10 laptop. The installation appears to go fine, but
when I try to run openvpn-gui, I'm told the application is already running
and I should go to my task manager and right click on the red VPN icon.
If I go to the system tray and find OpenVPN in the list of tasks,
then right click by using NVDA + right bracket, it brings up the context
menu for the application I was using before I went to the system tray. If
I try to open the context menu by pressing control + shift+ F10, I get a
menu, but it appears to be one that lets me try to run OpenVPN as
administrator, or in compatiblity mode with older versions of Windows, or
to create a desktop shortcut.
If I choose the open option from the menu, I get the same "OpenVPN-gui is
already running" message.

If I look at the OpenVPN process in the task manager, Control + Shift
+ Escape, I see the process, but I don't know how to bring it to the
foreground.

I see messages on this list that say folks got it working, but when I
try to follow their instructions, I run into the issues described above.
Can someone enlighten me as to what I'm doing wrong?

-thanks
-Brian

Few questions regarding the Place Markers add-on

Amir
 

Folks, having used the Place Markers feature in JAWS for a long time, I'd like to know if the Place Markers add-on for NVDA can provide an equal experience. Specifically:
1. Is it possible to create a place marker for a page and expect it to work on all pages belonging to that domain? For instance, I download a lot of podcasts and audio files from npr.org. With JAWS I've created a place marker for the Download link on one page and, via a check box, have set it up in a way that it works on all pages belonging to npr.org.
2. Crucially, can place markers be anchored to one or more words on a page so that they can always move us to the proper/expected location regardless of any modifications on that page? Again JAWS can do it by asking for a word or phrase to which a place marker should be anchored. Like the first one, this is also optional.

Best,
Amir

Just a thought.

Hi all,

Originally I planned to release version 20.09 of various add-ons next week. However in order to spend more time studying and to better process recent tragedies in United States and elsewhere (shootings, floods, COVID-19 updates), I’ll be releasing these updates tonight (August 27th to be exact). The new updates include:

  • Add-on Updater: effective with this update, there will be no more update checks for Image Describer add-on.
  • Control Usage Assistant: localization updates.
  • Enhanced Touch Gestures: coordinate announcement beep and temporary touch passthrough features are gone.
  • GoldWave: localization updates.
  • Object Location Tones: see an earlier message.
  • Resource Monitor: system uptime will be announced as x days, x hours, x minutes, x seconds.
  • StationPlaylist: mandatory update, start of next long-term support period (until April 2021), various changes for encoders support, table navigation commands are now available from places in Studio other than playlist viewer.
  • Windows 10 App Essentials: the workaround in place for Version 20H2 is gone as Microsoft released a fix.

 

As always, these updates can be found via Add-on Updater and from community add-ons website.

Note: development snapshots for StationPlaylist and Windows 10 App Essentials will be suspended effective tonight until further notice.

 

Another reminder: we are indeed living in an unpredictable moment. I therefore urge you all to keep yourself and others safe and healthy. For people impacted by recent tragedies and short-term events to come, we are here for you.

Cheers,

Joseph Lee's add-ons: version 20.09 to be released tonight (August 27), suspending add-on development for a while (again) #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

Originally I planned to release version 20.09 of various add-ons next week. However in order to spend more time studying and to better process recent tragedies in United States and elsewhere (shootings, floods, COVID-19 updates), I’ll be releasing these updates tonight (August 27th to be exact). The new updates include:

  • Add-on Updater: effective with this update, there will be no more update checks for Image Describer add-on.
  • Control Usage Assistant: localization updates.
  • Enhanced Touch Gestures: coordinate announcement beep and temporary touch passthrough features are gone.
  • GoldWave: localization updates.
  • Object Location Tones: see an earlier message.
  • Resource Monitor: system uptime will be announced as x days, x hours, x minutes, x seconds.
  • StationPlaylist: mandatory update, start of next long-term support period (until April 2021), various changes for encoders support, table navigation commands are now available from places in Studio other than playlist viewer.
  • Windows 10 App Essentials: the workaround in place for Version 20H2 is gone as Microsoft released a fix.

 

As always, these updates can be found via Add-on Updater and from community add-ons website.

Note: development snapshots for StationPlaylist and Windows 10 App Essentials will be suspended effective tonight until further notice.

 

Another reminder: we are indeed living in an unpredictable moment. I therefore urge you all to keep yourself and others safe and healthy. For people impacted by recent tragedies and short-term events to come, we are here for you.

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: NVDA and Disqus

I was using Firefox at the time, I think. Most likely I didn't test it
on more than one browser, because that's the browser that particular 
Twitter account is logged into, and I was authorizing via Twitter. It
did post in the end, I just went back and looked at it. It just looked
like it didn't at the time.


Object Location Tones 20.09, penultimate add-on release #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

Object Location Tones 20.09 will show up in about an hour or so from now. This version includes code edits based on Flake8 lint tool recommendations.

 

IMPORTANT: Object Location Tones add-on will be discontinued by end of 2020. As much as I wish to develop this add-on further, the time for this add-on’s usefulness has passed, and I would like to lighten my NVDA work in preparation for next stage in life. As the add-on is released under GNU General Public License, anyone is welcome to study, modify, and share their edits. The repo can be found at:

https://github.com/josephsl/objlocationtones

 

The last version of this add-on from me is planned for early next year (likely in January 2021).

 

Cheers,

Joseph
