Re: speech hub and ducking.

Gene NZ <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi Ken

The audio ducking feature is only in the installer version of NVDA and not in the portable version of NVDA. It was put into the NVDA 2016.1 release.

I just tried it with the audio ducking feature and it worked with speechhub.

Is when you are having problems with speechhub is it when you first boot up the computer? I have 6 machines here all with speechhub on them, the 5 of them which are duel core machines load with speechhub every time with the correct voices, but they are not the intensive ones. I have not tried it with the mary voices for a while.

Now and again on the quad core machine when it starts up, it will default back to the E speak voice. I think this is a timing issue
With the installer version of NVDA I use the alt + ctrl + the letter N to restart NVDA then it comes up with the voice that was chosen. Isaac is the developer of speechhub and i think he is on the list still.
I can pass on the details to him.

Hi listers ken here was fiddling around on synthesizers dialog on NVDA and and didn’t find the ducking option in the dialog.  also now another issue is coming up.  I also changed synthsizers to a speech hub cross platform voice and I noticed that the NVDA isn’t saving configuration it’s going back to the Espeak default.  have switched  back to sapi 5 and now I notice that it’s still reverting back to default.  screen reader keeps shutting down too when I do some things.  why isn’t it holding configuration or ducking even though my computer shows save configuration is checked and am using current version it shows that on programs and features installed on 2/22/2016  should  I uninstall and reinstall a fresh copy from scratch?  


Re: Sort of resetting NVDA screen buffer/app module in normal applications

Brian's Mail list account BY <bglists@...>
 

Hmm, I've found nvda and f6 is it, in web pages quite good, but not tried it in the Thunderbird client. My guess is that this is a thunderbird thing.
Does this happen more often if other programs are running but not in the focussed window? I've seen that sort of behaviour before both in nvda and other screenreaders like Dolphin ones.

Subject: [nvda] Sort of resetting NVDA screen buffer/app module in normal applications


Sorry for mentioning this, but, in a manner similar to how you can reset jaws scripts while using a piece of software, is there some way to sort of reload the NVDA app module for a specific piece of software while using it, or to, at the very least, do something similar to NVDA-key + F5 in a web browser, to reload the on-screen buffer, etc.?

Asking since, for example, at times, while writing a message in thunderbird, it seems like NVDA loses track of the contents of the message thus far, and while occasionally, alt+tabbing away, pausing momentarily, and then alt+tabbing back to the message will help, generally, the only real workaround seems to be to unload NVDA, and then reload it.

TIA

Hi Chico,
The direct download link of Joseph's archive of the recent NVDA
related Techtalk presentation is
http://nvda-kr.org/files/NVDA%20Tek%20Talk%20Presentation%2020160314.mp3
Despite having attended the presentation like you, I too downloaded
the file, just for reference.
Thanks.

Hi Nasrin,

chiming in.
The NVDACon webpage offers comprehensive instructions on basic
functional usage of Teamtalk and how you can acquire and configure it
to join the conference.
Please find below the relevant section of the page which explains the
procedure to join the NVDACon International 2016 followed by the link
from which the extract was taken, i.e. the NVDACon page.

How to join us
TeamTalk is a program that you run on your Windows PC (there is a Mac
version available, but we have found that it does not work well with
VoiceOver and so we do not recommend you use it). To get started,
follow these steps:
1. Download the software (TeamTalk 5) from bearware.dk
2. When you are installing the above program, you will come to a
screen where you can choose which components you want. Tab to the list
of components and arrow down until you find the "TeamTalk 5 classic"
option. Press space, then enter. For best results with screen reading
software, it is strongly recommended that you do this; the standard
(non-classic) version is not very accessible.
3. Once the setup process is complete, and you are in the TeamTalk
application (start it up if it is not running already), follow the
below procedure to connect to the server:
◦ From within TeamTalk, press f2. Tab until you get to the "host
properties" group, and simply erase any information that may be
already in the edit fields. For the "entry name", type anything you
want that will tell you what this server is (for example, "NVDACon").
For "host address", type nvda-kr.org. Set TCP port to 10333 and UDP
port to 10333 and skip everything else. Press enter on "join/update"
and you should be all set.
4. Once you are logged on, you can join any of the available rooms
(note that some may be password-protected). We first recommend doing
an audio test (choose the option form the context menu) To join this
or any room, just arrow to it and press control-j (to leave a room,
arrow to it and press control-l). You can also hit the applications
key, or shift-f10, on a room and choose the option you want.
5. While in any room, you will see three slider controls after the
list of channels (rooms and channels are the same thing), along with
an edit field. The first edit field is for system and user messages.
The second lets you chat by typing text and pressing enter. The first
slider changes your microphone's sensitivity (gain), the second
changes the volume of the room in general as you hear it, and we are
not sure what the third one does.
If you are using the JAWS for Windows screen reader or NvDA, there are
now JAWS scripts and NvDA add-on available for use with TeamTalk. The
link will take you to a website where you can download these free
scripts. We do not offer support for the scripts, though; please refer
to the above link for help instead.
NVDACon homepage: http://nvda-kr.org/en/nvdacon.php
Looking forward to having you with us in the event, and many thanks
again to Joseph for organizing this.
Thanks.

to help you.
Just to note, you can communicate in the conference via text messages

read out by others. If microphone configuration with TT is an issue
for you, hope that may no longer need to be an impediment for
participation in NVDACon. :) smiles

speech hub can not install.

Life My Way
 

I am having trouble installing speech hub it gets so far when i try and install the addon it won't let me go any farther something about java what is happening i have tried many times to install this but it won't install please help.


speech hub and ducking.

ken lawrence
 

Hi listers ken here was fiddling around on synthesizers dialog on NVDA and and didn’t find the ducking option in the dialog.  also now another issue is coming up.  I also changed synthsizers to a speech hub cross platform voice and I noticed that the NVDA isn’t saving configuration it’s going back to the Espeak default.  have switched  back to sapi 5 and now I notice that it’s still reverting back to default.  screen reader keeps shutting down too when I do some things.  why isn’t it holding configuration or ducking even though my computer shows save configuration is checked and am using current version it shows that on programs and features installed on 2/22/2016  should  I uninstall and reinstall a fresh copy from scratch?

Hi Scott,
Well, do let us know in case you have some specific Teamtalk problems
or troubleshooting requirements, and the TT experts here may be able
to help you.
Just to note, you can communicate in the conference via text messages
as well as audio conversation. Text chats are always recognized and
read out by others. If microphone configuration with TT is an issue
for you, hope that may no longer need to be an impediment for
participation in NVDACon. :) smiles
Thanks.

Accessible go program ?

Patrick Le Baudour
 

Hello,

I know it is unlikely, but just in case...
Does anyone know of a go program that could be used with nvda ? Especially one that could read sgf files.

Thanks.

-- Patrick.


Re: the talk tonight

 

I agree, sadly an hour in barely 30 minutes after start I had to go for lunch, household chores, and well a few other things.
One suggestion I have always had over addons which I never got to during the talk was that I wander if we could expand the functionality of the nvda addon manager.
Be able to search for addons, display all addons and either choose the dev or the stable version tabs of the manager.
Basically a frontend for the addons site similar to what mozilla uses it would be good.
we could also have a tab for tutorials and other interesting casts and links to who knows.
It could be part of nvda and maybe a sepperate thing who knows.

Did you adjust your punctuation settings perhaps?
NVDA menu, Preferences, Punctuation/symbol pronunciation.
In the list, hit . (the period key).
You should hear:

Don't hold NVDA down when pressing 1.
The reason NVDA shift z and NVDA arrows and such aren't working, I
suspect, is because you're using the desktop keyboard layout. Please do
the following:
1. Go to the NVDA menu, Preferences, Keyboard, or press CTRL+NVDA+k.

I don't know how different versions of Microsoft Word display such

right arrow to spell just as you can't in a list of file and folder
names. Use numpad 1 to move backward and numpad 3 to move forward.
These are screen review commands. I don't know if you would benefit
from using screen review commands anywhere else but you might benefit
from learning basic commands.

Numpad 1 is move back to and read previous character. 2 is read current
character. 3 is move to and read next character.

Numpad 4 5 and 6 are the same for word.

7 8 and 9 are the same for line.
