Re: Introducing the Quick Dictionary add-on #addonrelease

 

NVDA+x is free; I just tried that key combination and nothing happens so...yeah you can use that key combination for this addon.
But it would be nice, if users can change this hotkey in the input jestures dialog (correct me if this capability has been added already since my last post).


Re: Veracryp's SecureDesktop opt not usable latest trunk

john doe
 

What are the limitations preventing the portable version of NVDA from
accessing the secure desktop?


When NVDA gets that prompt, NVDA is lost and I couldn't find anyway out
of it.
For veracrypt I can work around this, it is an annoying issue when
working on computers that are not mine.
I took veracrypt to illustrate the issue but I'm also facing the issue
elsewhere.

It is only available in Windows 10, it is also limited by your system language. For ocr on lower version of windows you can try this addon written by me.

Hi,  Rob Hudson.
I think, Lion OCR with automatic recognition can do this.
 


Re: A more intelligent NVDA OCR?

 

I actually have not try the OCR function with games that involves fast movement of texts, or requires constant realtime interaction with texts, so I can't say how well OCR would work in that kind of situation.


Re: A more intelligent NVDA OCR?

Rob Hudson
 

Games move pretty fast though. Are you able to OCR and read and act with real speed?

I think I totally agree with the original post.
NVDA OCR, in the current form, is quite good already but I think this could be improved further, if technology allows it.
From my tests, OCR seems to work even with games such as Sims 3, thus allowing me to read in-game texts without the use of Windows Magnifier (well, at least for most of the time).

Re: running beta of nvda

The error sound plays when NVDA encounters an error (and that will be written to the log).  In some (many?) cases, the program will pick this up, and try something else to do what it needs to do.  In some cases, it is able to work around the problem, do whatever it was trying to do, and an end user wouldn't normally notice any problem.  In Alpha and Beta builds, the error sound is played when that error is encountered, even if NVDA then goes on to work around it.  In RC and stable builds, the error sound is suppressed.  If you look in the log, you'll still find the error there, even if you didn't notice anything untoward while working normally.  Ideally the point of the error sound is to alert the tester to the error, so they can investigate further.

There has been discussion in the past about the idea of having this be configurable.  This is the only issue I can find on it though which was closed a couple of years ago: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6917.  If anyone feels like creating a new issue, I think a case can be argued for the inclusion of an option, perhaps on the "Advanced" settings screen and have error sounds automatically enabled for alpha / beta builds and automatically disabled for RC / release builds.

Quentin.

Hi,

No, it doesn’t do that, although we came so close to it a while back with Crash Hero. The checkbox in question is about data to be sent when NVDA checks for updates for the purpose of gathering statistics on synthesizers, braille displays and such.

Doesn't NVDA have an automatic bug reporting system?  I thought that is why we have that checkbox that says if you want to send info to the NVDA developers to make it better. Thought it sent back something if an error occurs or something but maybe it doesn't do that.

Re: A more intelligent NVDA OCR?

Quentin Christensen
 

It should work with image PDF files.  A couple of things to bear in mind:
- It will recognise printed or typed text, but not so much handwritten text (a limitation of basically every OCR).
- It works, as Rob noted, with what is currently visible on screen.  If you are zoomed in such that only 1/10th of the page is visible, that's all it will be able to run OCR on.  If, however, you zoom out so you can fit 100 pages on screen, that won't work either, as the text will be too small to recognise.  One page should work well though.

Regards

Quentin.

Find a graphic with text and hit NVDA+r. OCR results pop up in a little virtual window. Hit escape to close.
