Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

Hi all,
In many newsletters I get, NVDA reads a link that says
URLQ=http%3A%2F%2Furl. How can I get NVDA to stop reading this as it
contains no useful information?

Hi Janet,
I don’t think there is such an option.
But, yes it will be nice.

Hello all,

 

My screen-reader skills are decent enough, but it would be nice to know when a program such as Edge or Word has opened. Right now, I have to alt-tab to find out whether the program I want has opened or not. This would also be handy when opening messages in Outlook.

Can you try this in focus mode? Will it work better that way? I don't know
if this is a web interface or not hence my suggestion.

Hi all,
I use Studio Recorder for audio editing.
Whenever I use ctrl left or ctrl-right arrow, NVDA says Linefeed.
Does anyone know of a way to remove linefeed?
It is an audio editor. I can understand in a document. :) Thanks, Chris

There is a theme add on, look for it on the nvda website and add ons section. I personally don’t use it as I don’t need to know when windows open, I have my screen reading skills to know this. I really don’t want my computer sounding like a video game. I must hear that when I play them lol!

Re: NVDA sounds

Not that I know of, though I may not know of such a setting.  I haven't seen one when I've looked through the program. 
 
This may not do what you want but in Windows there is, or there used to be and there probably still is, a setting in sounds that will play a sound whenever a new program opens.  Some windows that open are actually new instances of the program running so you may hear the sound when you want but others may wish to comment on that.I've never used such a setting because it would annoy me to no end, hearing such a sound over and over again.

One needs to purchase a license to in order to continue using the voices.

I think I saw Zoey in the list of voices but I have not tried it yet.

I see there are at least 2 different companies selling the Vocalizer voices for NVDA, and I wonder if there is any difference between the options out there.  For example, there are voices from Tiflotecnia, or CodeFactory.  They do the same thing, but, the actual binaries are totally different.  Also, the CodeFactory option seems to also include eloquence.

 

Are there advantages in getting CodeFactory voices, vs. those from Tiflotecnia?

Not to mention Office 2010.  From the End of Support for Office 2010 Page:
Support for Office 2010 ended on October 13, 2020 and there will be no extension and no extended security updates. All of your Office 2010 apps will continue to function. However, you could expose yourself to serious and potentially harmful security risks.

There is a reason that the NVDA Group Rules state, very clearly:
-------

Unsupported versions of any software may only be discussed on the Chat Subgroup, not the main NVDA Group. 

Windows:  Only Windows 8.1 and currently supported versions of Windows 10.  Members should refer to the Windows Lifecycle Fact Sheet to determine which versions of Windows are currently supported.  Information about the dates on which specific versions of Windows 10 reached or will reach their end of service dates is listed there as well and will be updated as new versions are released. 

Note that it is acceptable to direct a user to the NVAccess or Microsoft sites where older versions can be downloaded, however, this is different than supporting a specific version of software or operating system.

NVDA:  NVDA has, at any given time, a single version under active support.  If a question arises about how to update to that version, and you’re on an earlier version, that will be permitted as transition problems can occasionally occur.

-------

We are now just short of six years into the era of Windows 10.  Windows 7 is officially out of support.  It is still possible to do an in-place upgrade, at no cost, from Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10.  For those still on Windows 7, that's precisely what they should do.  If you intend to stay in the Windows ecosystem you do not, under any circumstances, use an out-of-support version of that operating system that no longer receives security updates.

The same is true of MS-Office as well.  The most dangerous period is generally the first full year after the date a given version goes out of support, because that's when those who wish to hack have a field day trying to find as-yet-undiscovered vulnerabilities that can then be exploited without any chance of patching.

There are free alternatives to MS-Office and many email clients as well as webmail.  There is a free path to the currently supported version of Windows.  Those options should be accessed when needed, and anyone still using Windows 7 needs to get off of it.

And the quotation of the rules is there so I can emphasize that I will be monitoring, and enforcing same.  If you have chosen to use out-of-support software that is your choice.  But what isn't is trying to discuss it on the NVDA group.  The Chat Subgroup is available, or some other venue.

Hi Bob,
It sounds like you’ve exhausted all the suggestions you’ve received here and it still isn’t working as expected. Have you opened up a ticket on the NVDA git hub for this? Probably wouldn’t hurt to get the devs taking a look at it if they aren’t already.

Thanks for raising this.  It also looks like the link should be http:// rather than https:// (we updated most of our links when we updated all of the NVDA links to https:// but this might have been one we shouldn't have changed).  That doesn't fix your problem though as it seems you'd figured out your way past that as well.

I wrote to info@... and will let you know if I get a response.  In the meantime, I can confirm I also get the request for a username and password.

Kind regards
