Hello Roger:

I do not understand your posting. What is an SPL addon? Is it for JAWS, NVDA, or Office? Also, what is the LTS version? Using Three Letter Acronyms (TLAs) without expansion is difficult for those who are not cognizant of their meaning. Also, it helps readers if you specify what program an add on pertains to.

Subject: [nvda] SPL add on version?

I'm using the stable version of the SPL add on. However, when I started this morning, I got a notice that a new version of the add on is available but it wanted to give me the LTS version instead of the stable version. I then went to the add on page to check there. When I chose to download the stable version, it again offered me the lts version instead. I tried downloading the lts version and got nothing. Does anyone know what's going on here?

Thanks.

Reducing the Announcement of Notifications in Thunderbird

Hans
 

Hi,

I have a question about Thunderbird and how NVDA will read every notification, such as downloading 1 of 1 in Inbox, or Deleted 1 of 3 in Important or what's going on with messages going into folders, right while I'm trying to listen to a message.  How do I control what is said as far as notifications go in Thunderbird, so I'm not interrupted while trying to listen to a message.  I don't want to turn off notifications in the settings preferences, where you go into Object presentation options.  There I see a check box to turn notifications on or off.  I don't want to turn notifications off, just cut down on what in hear in Thunderbird.

Thanks for any assistance in this.

Hans


Re: SPL add on version?

 

Hi,
It was intentional - I did it that way so those using Studio 5.20 can switch to LTS channel. That's why I specifically asked stable version users using Studio 5.30 and later to skip 20.09.1-LTS.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi Samuel,

There are two companies who sell Vocalizer:

Tiflotecnia sell Vocalizer which you can download from: https://vocalizer-nvda.com/downloads (I'm pretty sure you can just install that, and if you don't have a license, it goes into trial mode).  You might need to check with them if that is the latest version, or the earlier one which only works up to NVDA 2019.2.1 (I've CC'd Rui Fontes at Tiflotecnia who can help here also).

Code Factory also sell a bundle which includes both Vocalizer and Eloquence: https://codefactoryglobal.com/app-store/voices-for-nvda/  I believe their download works in much the same way (it goes into demo mode if you don't have a license code).

Thunderbird quick key folder navigation addon

Don H
 

What is the latest version of thunderbird that still works with the quick key folder navigation addon?


Re: NVDA support in DOS emulators like DosBox?

 

Well luke, the issue with a vm, especially a dos one is more physical than not.

1.  yes you can.

You would get as much responce out of dos as you would a basic linux terminal.

But here is the thing.

You don't have a physical serial port or a synth.

Assuming you had both of those, yes you could.

However unless you had something like a soundblaster card or something and its drivers you couldn't really handle sound.

Lets face it, modern pc speakers are utter crap.

There is no need  for a pc speaker if everything is via sound.

Sound cards may have speakers.

I know on some systems they only have emulated pc speakers within the sound chip.

There are systems I have used that don't have a pc speaker at all.

Most if not all systems may have one but you will never hear it unless its got an issue.

But in theory and if you had the right equipment you could.

But most don't have serial synths or the ports to run them so it won't work.


The closest would be some sort of os like linux that handled all this stuff.

As Shaun Everiss pointed out, you could try DOSEmu for this.
I would probably spin up an EC2 instance, or something at one of the cheap Linode alternatives, install DOSEmu, and see what you could make work.

It's been 10-15 years since I used DOSEmu, but when I did I remember it being pretty good.

The other option I considered for this, would be to install a DOS based virtual machine in Virtualbox or something.  I don't know for sure if you can do that, but it might be possible to run a 16 bit OS there.
There were remote access protocols for DOS, that would allow you to use it over a serial port. You could probably use it with a terminal emulator over a virtual comm port.

I'm not sure how responsive NVDA might be in that scenario, but I'll be interested in your results for historical reasons.

I recently had occasion to try to run SSHDOS (SSH for DOS) under Win 10 to support a customer who still uses DOS and SSH, but I could not for the same reasons discussed earlier here.

Hi Joseph. Right. The DOS box consul is not a text based Consol. It supports DOS applications that run in both text and graphics modes so when it displays
text, it’s actually displaying a graphical representation of text. this is why in my first post I was wondering if an NVDA add-on could be created in python
that would work something like the following:
1. Monitor the dos box Consol for any changes
2. Anytime a change is detected, apply OCR to convert the consul output to text
3. Compare this OCR snapshot to the previous and announce to NVDA whatever changed, such as the display scrolling, a value on the screen changing, etc.
I am brushing up on my python as we speak and I have identified some library’s that deal with taking a screen capture of the active application as well as
OCR. I’m not sure if this exceeds the limitations of what NVDA add-ons are capable of but I figure it’s worth a shot. Plus, it gives me a good project to
learn python, if nothing else.

And I don't see an additional comment from you on that issue.  That's how priorities get set, at least partially.  The developers don't base what they're working on from what happens to get mentioned here, but through a process that prioritizes the issues on GitHub.  And much like any issue tracking system, the more separate people that "pile on" to an existing open issue to note that they have it, too, and would like to see a solution, the more likely it is to get bumped up in the priority list.

The company I'm starting with uses a program called Zoiper. It's what I
would call marginally usable, meaning NVDA sometimes can't find where it's
supposed to be and clicks the wrong thing.
Would like to know of a recommendation for an accessible SIP
client/softphone I could switch to, if the company gives me permission to,
that is. Thanks.

Hi all,

my name is Pavel I am from Czech Republic. I am owner of little recording studio for disabled people, including visually impaired etc. I also have a small group of members. We used Mac Os for 8 years, but the life of the computer ended. At this time, we don't have money to buy professional Mac, which will work with Logic Pro X and Komplete Kontrol etc. So at this time, we and especially I, because I am main sound master need to use my older HP Z-book 17,3 the first generation with Win
10 and Nvda. Software, which can I use is Soundforge, Goldwave and Audacity. So, can computer with Nvda and Win 10 be used for professional audio work or not?

Thanks,

Pavel
