Re: Vocalizer for NVDA skips first part of speech

Quentin Christensen
 

My first thought on the problem was the audio driver being asleep and slow to wake up, but it's interesting that it doesn't happen with OneCore. 

It might be worth sharing with info@....  I'm not aware of a GitHub issue, although if it only affects Vocalizer / Eloquence, it may well be an issue with the synthesizer rather than NVDA.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hello,

 

Has anyone experienced that using the CodeFactory Vocalizer and Eloquence add-on for NVDA, the first part of the speech gets cut off if you haven’t used the system for some seconds? This happens on my computer using NVDA 2020.3 beta 3 and Codefactory Vocalizer and Eloquence add-on version 1.9 which should be the latest version according to www.codefactoryglobal.com

 

This does not happen with the OneCore voices supplied with Windows10, as far as I have been able to test.

 

I haven’t been able to test this with earlier versions, and I don’t know if the add-on can be used in the portable version alongside an installed version in order to test this with the latest alpha version.

 

I don’t mind adding comments to an issue on GitHub, should such an issue already exist. I can create one as well if needed.

 

Kind regards

Re: Veracryp's SecureDesktop opt not usable latest trunk

john doe
 

Based on the feedback I got so far, I think I need to clarify my
thoughts/questions:

According to Gene, secureDesktop triggered by UAC is working when NVDA
is installed.
As I can not test this for now, I'll trust Gene on that one.


Why can't NVDA take advantage of secureDesktop in portable mode
(technical limitation, support lacking in NVDA ...)?


The following speaks only in the context of Veracrypt:

As far as testing goes, the secureDesktop triggered by Veracrypt (2) is
not accessible with NVDA installed or in portable mode.
If I understand correctly, secureDesktop should at least be accessible
when NVDA is installed.

- Why is secureDesktop triggered by Veracrypt not accessible at all?


I appriciate any feedback.

Re: symbols don't get spoken despite being added to both lists

Quentin Christensen
 

When adding a symbol, the symbol level (None, some, most or all) corresponds to NVDA's punctuation / symbol level.  When NVDA is set to "Some", only symbols with a symbol level of "None" or "Some" are reported.  At most, NVDA reads symbols with a level of "None", "Some" or "Most" etc.  You can adjust NVDA's symbol level with NVDA+p or from NVDA's speech / voice settings (NVDA+control+v to open that screen and tab to "Punctuation / Symbol level".

So, if you set a symbol to have a level of "All", it will only be read at symbol level "All".

Kind regards

Quentin.

Windows 10 App Essentials 20.10 released, last version to support NVDA 2020.1 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

In the midst of recovering from an epic “spectacular entertainment” that was last night’s presidential debate (sorry for bringing politics for a second), I’m delighted to announce the release of Windows 10 App Essentials 20.10. This version includes changes to improve support for modern IME introduced in more recent Windows 10 updates. As always, the new version can be found via Add-on Updater and on community add-ons website.

 

Important notes:

  • Windows 10 App Essentials 20.10 will be the last version to support NVDA 2020.1.
  • Windows 10 App Essentials will end support for Windows 10 Version 1909 (November 2019 Update) in December 2020.

 

Cheers,

Joseph


Welcome to the NVDA Community Add-ons website - Numpad Nav Mode #nvdaaddonsfeed

nvda@nvda.groups.io Integration <nvda@...>
 

Numpad Nav Mode

  • Author: Luke Davis (Open Source Systems, Ltd.)
  • Download stable version

Numpad Nav Mode is an NVDA add-on, which allows you to easily switch your keyboard's numpad between NVDA's navigation controls and the non-screenreader Windows navigation controls.

The normal functions of the PC number pad, with numlock off, are: page up, page down, home, end, four-way arrow keys, and a delete key. But NVDA completely takes over the numpad, to provide review keys, mouse controls, and object navigation controls. This is true even in laptop keyboard mode, which duplicates those functions on non-numpad keys for those who do not have a numpad.

However some users do have a numpad on their laptop, and would prefer to use it for Windows navigation purposes, especially because some laptops do not provide home, end, or other such keys. That is where this add-on can help. Additionally, some desktop users may sometimes find it convenient to use the numpad for those keyboard functions rather than the normal keys, which this add-on enables.

How it works

With numlock off, no matter what keyboard layout you are using, this add-on will let you press Alt+NVDA+NumpadPlus (which is usually the long key second up on the right), to quickly and easily switch between the normal NVDA navigation controls, and the classic Windows navigation controls. This key can be remapped under Input Gestures, in the Input section.

Note that this add-on doesn't disable the use of numpad insert as an NVDA modifier, if you have it set as such. If you want that feature, please let me know, although you can manually turn off numpad insert as a modifier in NVDA keyboard settings.

If you would prefer to have NVDA start with the Windows nav mode active by default, you can configure that in NVDA configuration. Go to NVDA's preferences, then settings, and find the Numpad Nav Mode settings panel. There you will be able to select a checkbox to turn Windows Nav Mode on by default when you start NVDA. To get there quickly, press NVDA+N, P, S, then N one or more times until you hear "Numpad Nav Mode".

New features

I encourage you to email with any feature suggestions, or other use cases that I haven't listed here, or just to let me know you find the add-on useful!

Inspiration

This add-on was the direct result of requests I've seen from users over the years, and a GitHub discussion in #9549. With thanks to @Qchristensen and @feerrenrut.

One thing I noticed, however, is if you install PotPlayer on Windows 10, for

pressing the f5 key and going into the skins setting, and change the context
menu to system default.

With that in mind, it seems like this could be evolved even further. Is the technology available such that NVDA could try to not only recognize text from the app but ascertain the structure of the user interface, perhaps organizing things into form elements like buttons, text fields etc and then presenting them in the same element browser we use for web pages?
Have you heard about Sibiac (
http://www.azslow.com/index.php?topic=372.0)?
I'm personally not a musician, so I haven't tested, but some people
reports great success with it and it more or less does what you've asked
for.

Barring that, perhaps a
more immediately reachable upgrade would be different actions we can
take on items in the OCR result. For example, instead of just the option
to hit enter to invoke something, what about a Context menu that lets
you invoke it or simply position the mouse cursor where that element was
found?

It is possible already. To position your mouse on the recognized item you
just need to press NVDA+numpad Slash to route the mouse to the review
cursor position. After that you can perform any mouse operation.

Re: Captcha Extension

Mobeen Iqbal
 

Hi.

Regarding a reliable method of solving captchas, I am afraid you may struggle. It's been discussed on this group in the past, but the solutions that were working haven't been maintained as browsers are updated.

Regarding your keyboard, it sounds like the internal keyboard is damaged. The best thing to do would be to have the keyboard replaced. This should not cost too much, in my experience it's not cost more than £25 to £50 in the past via a local competent computer shop.

Very best wishes,

Mo.

Re: Edge and/or NVDA crashes

 

I wander if this thing has to do with waterfox and its crashes, the brouser does actually hang on a lot of pages.

Could this behaviour seen on edge happen because of nvda, so far the main dev is not sure what has changed in the latest version between 08 and 09 because all the updates were simple updates and without addons like my script blocker things crash but faster.

Either the program hangs or it hangs and nvda hangs to till waterfox is closed with narator.

I thought it was my cpu type or firmware but now I am not sure.

Hi all,

when I work with edit fields or combo boxes in Edge NVDA or Edge often
crashes. I'm not sure which of the programs causes the issue. NVDA is
just silent when it happens.

Sometimes I can restart NVDA by pressing a shortcut I set up and then it
works again. But it also can happen that NVDA does not restart. Then it
usually helps to start and close Narrator (CTRL+WINDOWS+ENTER) and that
seems to help NVDA to speak again.

Mostly I'm experiencing these crashes when I'm writing a mail on
gmail.com or when I'm uploading tracks on Soundcloud.

While writing this message, I had to restart NVDA six times cause it
stopped working.

I use Windows 10, latest stable version of Edge and NVDA 2020.2.

Does anyone know what the reason could be? It is not nice! :)



Best

Denis
