Re: NVDA and Notepad ++ search

No, but I doubt this is an NVDA problem. Its probably a Notepad problem since that is a Notepad command. You can check this by testing with another screen-reader.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA and Notepad ++ search

I am running the latest stable version 7.9.1

1. I use ctrl f to search for something, and I know that that part of
text exist more than one time in that document.

2. then I press F3 to jump to next result

3. NVDA said no more search result in this direction, but actually the
focus has already jump to the new line that matches the search keyword

4. I try pressing ctrl home and start from the very begining, pressing
F3 do also speak no more search ....

I jump to end by ctrl End, then I press F3, NVDA just say the same, no
more search..... but did not have the sound that indicate no next search

result.


Do anyone has any idea about how to fix this?

Re: trouble switching to basic mode in Gmail

Normally there's a link at the top of the page that says Basic HTML
view however at times, it doesn't show up. Just refresh the page as
many times as necessary until it shows up, Usually it only takes a
couple of refreshes.

Stay safe,

Once I had that problem and I found the button to switch by pressing
tab+space bar and then tab or shift+tab to find the button to switch
back to basic html.

Re: Reading All Unicode Characters with NVDA

Quentin Christensen
 

There are currently several issues requesting various unicode characters.  I think the issue might be that there is no standard description for them that we could simply refer to - each one needs to be added by hand.  I haven't looked into it myself so might not be correct - or maybe as you wondered, they could all be added but it would cause a performance impact.  

Here is a link to a list of open issues which came up when I searched for "unicode": https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+unicode

With the punctuation / symbol pronunciation dialog, yes you can add symbols to that.  Open it, select add, type or paste the symbol, type the text to speak and a comment if desired.  The symbol level is the level the symbol text is read at, vs sending the symbol itself to the synthesizer.  For instance, the comma "," is set to symbol level "all".  There are four levels: "None", "Some", "Most", and "All".  NVDA only reads "comma" at Symbol level "all".  At lower symbol levels (none, some or most), NVDA simply sends the comma itself to the synthesizer, which acknowledges it by a slight pause in reading.  If the symbol level for comma was set to "some", then NVDA would pause at symbol level "none", but read the word "comma" at symbol level some, most and all.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Alternate Voices

Sean Randall
 

Hi Andrea  

 

As Señor Esteban has rightly said, the real-time processing needs of screen readers and the way in which these voices are generated is not yet viable for full-time screen reader use.  In fact, all the messages on  the smart speakers about connecting to wi-fi and doing setup are pre-recorded audio files, and the other utterances are, for the most part, synthesized in the cloud and delivered as audio streams to the device.  This is why Alexa sounds the same across all apps and platforms, the act of generating the audio is handled outside of  the device.

 

Voices that sound good are very subjective of course. I quite like Ava, from the Vocalizer range, and neospeech had 2  voices called  Bridget and Julie (one was US and one UK English).  I grew up with formant synthesizers though, so still prefer my  Eloquence where I can get it.

Re: NVDA and Microsoft Office Outlook 2003

 

hello.
welcome to nvda and i am glad that you love this excellent program.
i remember that one time joseph lee mentioned that office 2003 is not
supported anymore in nvda versions since 2019.
so, i believe that you may get better result if you download older
versions of nvda for office 2003 using.

Hello Folks

Approximately 2 months ago I commenced using NVDA, currently version
2020.3.
Within a couple of weeks of this I subscribed to this group and this is my
first post.

I am in the midst of having the software on my desktop and laptop computers
upgraded / changed and, to spread the learning curve and disruption, have
opted to carry this out in 2 phases.

Firstly, I upgraded to Windows-10, Firefox and Google chrome, and changed
to
using NVDA. Previously I was using Windows-7, Internet Explorer 11 and
JAWS.

Secondly, and imminent, I will be upgrading to Microsoft 365 from Microsoft
Office 2003. Prior to doing so, there are several tasks I would like to
complete. Unsurprisingly, bearing in mind the age of Microsoft Office
2003,
I am experiencing some difficulties but finding work arounds for or
tolerating the vast majority of them. However, their is one which is
proving extremely frustrating in respect of Outlook 2003!

When reading back and forth through an HTML or Plain Text e-mail thread
using the 4 arrow keys, when I read some e-mail addresses in the second
most
recent message in the thread, or messages prior to this, NVDA often stops
speaking and my computer freezes. It appears the only way to get out of
this is to relaunch NVDA:
Windows Key+r nvda Enter.

After relaunching NVDA, when I alt+tab, all of the applications / messages
/
files etc. I was working with / on are still open. However, when the
message causing the problem is highlighted I have to quickly tap the End
Key
or Ctrl+Home to take the cursor away from the e-mail address causing the
problem, otherwise, failure to do this quickly enough will result in a
reoccurrence of NVDA being silenced and the computer freezing.

When I invoke continuous read,
NVDA Key+Down Arrow
the e-mail thread is read back without a problem!

The problem occasionally occurs when using Microsoft Office Word 2003.
When
reading some, not all, e-mail addresses in a file.

If there is a solution to the problem I would be pleased to read about it.
However, I suspect I may be advised / told to upgrade to Microsoft Office
365 slightly quicker than I planned.

I have searched for a solution in the NVDA manual and on the website, and
also carried out an internet search. It appears NVDA will support elements
of Microsoft Office from version 2010 to 365.

I look forward to your replies. In anticipation, many thanks.

Re: Adobe Reader and NVDA

Hello Quentin

 

I regularly had the same experience using Adobe, and pressed the alt key and the space bar which generally let me read the PDF file.  However regularly it would still not read it, and NVDA an r would not read the document either.  I made Google Chrome  my default PDF reader, and I can now read PDF files just about all the time.  I rarely have any success with NVDA and r.

I'm not sure what Avpage view is?

 

Normally, when you open a PDF file, if it has been created properly and is accessible, you should be able to read it just like reading a Word document or web page.

 

If the document has been scanned as an image of text, NVDA will normally report this, and in that case you can press NVDA+r to run OCR on the document, and then use the standard reading and navigation keys to read the text (and press escape when done).

 

Otherwise if you could perhaps give more information about the error?

 

Kind regards

Re: NVDA and Microsoft Office Outlook 2003

Raymond Brough
 

Hello Quentin
 
Many thanks for your clear and concise suggestions.

I implicitly and carefully followed your instructions in respect of the: NVDA advanced settings (use UIA in Word) and turning off the preview pane.  This attempt was unsuccessful, I could not find some of the areas mentioned in your numbered list of instructions.
 
I will make further attempts and, if still not successful, I will have to seek further assistance, or, as previously stated, upgrade to Microsoft Office 2016, 2019 or 365 or another office suite slightly sooner than planned.
 
An important matter I omitted to mention in my initial e-mail!  My first impressions of NVDA are positive.  The problems I have been experiencing when using Microsoft Office 2003 can probably largely be attributed to its age and not NVDA.  When I do upgrade my office suite, I sincerely hope it works as intended but will be prepared for the inevitable IT gremlins and a learning curve. 
 
Again, many thanks

In NVDA's advanced settings, there is an option to use UIA in Word.  Outlook essentially uses Word to display messages, and I wonder if something is going funny in the older version of Office with this new setting:

1. Press NVDA+control+g to open NVDA's settings.
2. Press CONTROL+SHIFT+TAB to move from the first page to the last page, advanced.
3. Press space to check the "I understand that changing these settings may cause NVDA to function incorrectly" checkbox.
4. Press TAB to "Use UIA automation to access Microsoft Word document controls when available.
5. Press space to uncheck this.
6. Press ENTER to close settings
7. Press NVDA+contorl+c to save NVDA's settings.

I'm not sure exactly why the freeze is happening, but I expect the reason it is happening as soon as you move focus to that problematic email in the list, is because Word is trying to show you a preview of the message in the preview page.  To be honest, I can't recall the steps for Outlook 2003, but according to Google: "To turn off the preview pane: In Microsoft Outlook 2003 and 2007, select the View menu, navigate to Reading pane and click Off. In Windows Mail, click on the View menu and select Layout. Under the Preview Pane section, uncheck "Show preview pane"."

Reading All Unicode Characters with NVDA

Currently, NVDA does not read all unicode symbols it encounters. While there is good support for emois, greek letters and some math symbols are not covered.

2. Can it be extended to all unicode characters? Are there performance considerations included?
