Hi there,
Yeah, that's what I've been doing up to now myself. But I'm cancelling my VPS subscription soon, so really I need a localised way, if there is one.
Cheers,

Re: OCR: Interacting with items from recognized UI

Luke Robinett <blindgroupsluke@...>
 

yes, very familiar with those commands and I’m still not sure it is being understood exactly what I’m asking about. I think the messages I’ve already written on the subject are pretty clear and I do appreciate you for taking a shot at it but I’m not going to try to continue explaining it and risk muddying the waters of my original question. We will see if we get some other responses. Thanks again.

Hi Sascha,

I will review that section of the manual, but I just want to make sure it was clear what I was asking about. I know I can initiate a mouse click from the keyboard using the NVDA key and the numpad slash key. I also have the golden cursor ad on so I can move the mouse cursor around, set hot spots etc. I’m still not sure how I can get from the text readout of an OCR recognition result to the screen location of one of the controls it recognized. For example, say I take OCR of an application’s interface and when I’m reviewing the OCR output, one of the items I come across says ”options.” How can I tell NVDA to go to where it found that text on the UI and initiate a mouse click there? Thanks again.

 Hi! Did you tried this:

You need to download and install an MSI package corresponding to your windows architecture, 32 or 64 bit. Hope it helps. Regards!


Virtual Linux and NVDA?

Damien Garwood <damien@...>
 

Hi,
When I tried to run a Linux-based VM, I got no speech, presumably because NVDA doesn't have access to the machine. So I'm wondering, other than through WSL, is it possible at all to run Linux and somehow get it to interact nicely with NVDA?
Cheers.

          Mute is typically done through a dedicated key on some media keyboards, or through F6 or F7 (when used as media keys) on many laptops and some desktop keyboards.  All it takes to trigger a mute by accident is Fn+F6 (or F7) and often Fn+F6 (or F7) will toggle it back off.

Hello!


To use the PacMate Braille display with NVDA you must plug the Braille display directly to the PC and not through the PacMate device...




Try using this driver:

Re: control click with nvda?

 

Mitchel,

           Then my advice to you will be the same thing I've been doing as a tutor for years now with my screen reader users who have a laptop:  Mask off the mouse touchpad part of the mousepad as a whole, leaving only the hard left click and right click buttons exposed.  You then have access to these when you need them, without need of emulation of any kind, and you do not have issues with mouse pointer movement.

            A piece of cardboard that's about the weight that is used on the back of small notepads, blister packs that you get all sorts of stuff in, or even cutting the corner off of an old greeting card such that you retain both layers gives you enough thickness to prevent mouse movement.

            I always suggest taping down the left side like it's the spine of a book while taping down the right side with a tab that allows it to be lifted easily in the event you have a sighted assistant for anything, as the vast majority will be incapable of doing anything without the ability to move the mouse pointer somehow for point and click.  You just flip it shut and tap that tape tab back down when they're done and you're good to go.

            If you happen to have a newer laptop where the edges of the mouse pointer touchpad are not well defined, you may need a sighted assistant to get the right size mask cut and affixed.  If it's one of the conventional laptops where the mousepad size can be clearly felt around the edges of the bezel in which it sits, it's generally something that's DIY whether you have any vision or not.

Re: Key Pass Through

Gene
 

I was wrong about the keys not working with the pass through command. I had thought they didn't work because nothing is spoken. When you use the main keyboard home and end keys without using the pass through command or the numpad home and end using the nav mode and again not using the pass through command, add-on, something is spoken, the character you move to or the list item you move to.

Also, I just found something interesting about the pass next key through command. it doesn't work properly when you are in a list of files or the desktop list. The rename dialog opens. In short, it is a much better idea from the standpoint of convenience and speech feedback to use the Nav Mode Add-on for the purpose you want or to use the main keyboard home and end keys. I don't know anything about your keyboard but its hard to believe that there isn't some sort of command to make certain keys perform as home and end keys. Those are important and expected commands on keyboards.

Re: Reducing the reading speed of NVDA

Gene
 

The fastest way to open the speech settings dialog is with the command control NVDA key v. When the dialog opens, tab about four times to the rate setting slider. Set it as you wish, then press enter.

If you switch speech rates a lot and you switch them among the same numbers, you might want to figure out a way to do this using something that acts like presets. I haven't looked into the question enough to discuss it in any detail. Perhaps others will.

perhaps there is an add-on that lets you make the equivalent of presets. If not, you can use profiles.

You'd have to get yourself to the speech rate for your chosen synth using

decrement/decrease the rate using the third and fourth commands,
respectively.

addon

Hi Gene,
Even I used to think this but my uptime currently is at around thirty
days
and I am sure that I did shut down my PC this month. I don't understand
how
can this happen.

It means the amount of time the system has been running since your
last reboot or restart. I would think if you put the system in sleep
or hibernate, that is counted as uptime, since you haven't shut it
down or restarted it, but I've never checked nor seen that discussed.
Someone else should be able to tell you definitely.

Hi all,
I have been using the resource monitor addon for a while but I can't
understand what is the meaning of system's uptime and how or when does
it restart?

Re: Reducing the reading speed of NVDA

Hi Vaibhav,
If you wish to increase/decrease your speech rate by 1 level you will
need to do it through the settings only.

Hi Brian,

The voice rate this way increments or decrements by 5 levels. Any way to do
it just by one level without going to settings?

I am a laptop user thus using NVDA + Shift + Ctrl + Up/down arrow.

Thanks,
Vaibhav

Before I answer your question, I want to make you aware of one of the
handiest commands for a new NVDA user when it comes to finding the
keyboard
shortcuts used to control the vast majority of "commonly used" features:
NVDA+N,H,Q (which is INS+N,H,Q in desktop keyboard layout) will cause
the
Commands Quick Reference to open in your default web browser. The
question
you're asking is about one of the common features/tweaks, and the
keyboard
shortcuts for changing the reading rate, is found there under Synth
Settings Ring, copied here:
Synth settings ring
Name Desktop key Laptop key Description
Move to next synth setting NVDA+control+rightArrow
NVDA+shift+control+rightArrow Moves to the next available speech setting
after the current, wrapping around to the first setting again after the
last
Move to previous synth setting NVDA+control+leftArrow
NVDA+shift+control+leftArrow Moves to the next available speech setting
before the current, wrapping around to the last setting after the first
Increment current synth setting NVDA+control+upArrow
NVDA+shift+control+upArrow increases the current speech setting you are
on. E.g. increases the rate, chooses the next voice, increases the volume
Decrement current synth setting NVDA+control+downArrow
NVDA+shift+control+downArrow decreases the current speech setting you are
on. E.g. decreases the rate, chooses the previous voice, decreases the
volume
You'd have to get yourself to the speech rate for your chosen synth using
one or the other of the first two commands, then increment/increase or
decrement/decrease the rate using the third and fourth commands,
respectively.
