Re: Bluetooth speakers with Windows

I have observed that this problem is not there with NVDA versions before 19.3. I have NVDA 19.2 installed on my machine and I face no such issues. Occasionally I also use a portable copy of the latest NVDA and experience the exact issue described here.

Hello NVDA community,

First, I hope you are staying safe and healthy.

One day in early 2012, I came across a question posed on an NVDA list (it could have been this list which was hosted on a different forum platform then): can NVDA read Korean? That question led to an adventure that span nine years: translations, writing documentation, founding an international gathering of a community, releasing countless add-ons, moderating several NVDA lists and communities, and learning to incorporate lessons I have learned from the community in the next chapter of my life. In the midst of contributions, I recently hinted that I plan to retire from the community, and that golden opportunity has come:

On May 10, 2021, I was offered and accepted admission to master of arts (graduate school) program in communication studies at California State University, Los Angeles after graduating with highest honors (summa cum laude) from the same university.

After observing discussions between graduate students and thinking about balancing between graduate seminars, coaching speech and debate teams, and NVDA code contributions, I decided that school should take highest of highest of priorities. Graduate school is harder than undergraduate (college) education, especially when adding responsibility of teaching and coaching students competing in collegiate speech and debate tournaments. As much as I love programming and contributing to NVDA community, I cannot forget my immediate responsibilities of being a student and public speaking coach.

Therefore, I’m retiring from NVDA community contributions, effective September 1, 2021. This means:

  • I do have work to finish which might end up in NVDA as early as 2021.2, and I plan to dedicate this summer to completing outstanding pull requests.
  • I’m handing over most of my add-ons to the NVDA add-ons community for further maintenance. I do plan to maintain Add-on Updater and Windows 10 App Essentials – Add-on Updater is needed until NVDA comes with add-ons store, and Windows 10 App Essentials is needed to respond to ever-changing nature of Windows 10 ecosystem and to keep up with changes in NVDA development from time to time.
  • For NVDACon attendees and organizers, I will not be able to (and I really cannot) participate in NVDACon for a while.
  • For add-ons community, I will be stepping down as your chief admin and add-on reviewer this summer (details will be sent to add-ons list).

 

Several thank you’s:

  • Mick and Jamie: for starting it all fifteen years ago – April 2006 signaled the birth of a movement, which endures today.
  • NV Access staff, past and present: so many discussions, teaching me about life, programming, and group work.
  • Mesar Hameed: for teaching me about NVDA translation process and making sure community add-ons website was ready for the world in 2013.
  • Many NvDA users and enthusiasts in South Korea: for giving me an updated picture on Korean blindness community and help formulating strategies on translations and outreach nine years ago.
  • Many translators: for helping me adjust to the NVDA community when I was a novice translator in 2012.
  • Thousands of users: for teaching me many things – forum discussions, direct feedback, and countless other venues.
  • Nimer and NVDA Users list moderators, past and present: many collaborations and helpful advice.
  • For users of my add-ons: countless feedback, megabytes of debug logs (all were destroyed after analyses because they contain private information), and so many other things that made add-ons useful to this day.
  • NVDA supporters outside this forum: for your continued enthusiasm and support.
  • Microsoft engineers and fellow Windows Insiders: many opportunities to connect and learn from.
  • Folks from Mozilla, Google, and other organizations: for meeting new friends and colleagues.

 

One advice for future NVDA contributors: listen a lot. You can’t write effective add-ons and NVDA pull requests without listening to what others have to say. Before writing Python, sit down and have a conversation with users. Collaboration is the key, especially when talking to people online.

 

Although I’m retiring as a code contributor, I look forward to helping the NVDA community in other ways. Until then, graduate school is calling me – feel free to reach out if you seek advice on accessibility advocacy, programming in general, public speaking, and what not.

 

Before I close, I would like to take this time to invite resident high school and college students to invest in public speaking, or if you want, compete in speech and debate tournaments. You can’t just sit and ask others to advocate for you – you must do it yourself at some point in your life. One way to do so is learning public speaking and debate skills, and one venue is through competing in high school or college speech and debate tournaments. What strengthened my own advocacy skills was competing in speech tournaments, which also provided opportunities to tell the world about NVDA project – I even talked about NVDA and accessibility advocacy at a national speech tournament.

 

Advocacy will be important, especially as the world moves onto digital ways to accomplish more tasks: virtual reality, artificial intelligence, biometrics, web-based workplace, and telehealth. As high school and college students, you are in a place to inform and persuade people about baking accessibility into products. Right now, there aren’t many blind students competing in high school or college speech and debate tournaments, and I want to sincerely ask you to change the big picture. I’m willing to coach public speaking events (see the message header for contact email); this speech coaching offer from a nationally recognized former speech competitor and now an apprentice coach extends to any blind high school or college student (not only on NVDA Users list, but also in other communities).

 

Farewell, NVDA community. Thank you for teaching me many lessons over the last nine years, and for giving me opportunities to make a difference in the lives of many as an undergraduate college student and a volunteer code contributor. Love you all, and stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Joseph S. Lee

Re: Bluetooth speakers with Windows

Hi Jean,

 

I suspect that the Bluetooth speaker itself is laggy.  This occurs because it is Bluetooth Version 4 or less.

Since neither add-on solves the problem, I am suspicious that the problem isn’t the usual one.  Anything that keeps the sound card active, such as Silenzio, as I understand it, should solve the problem and I would expect the Add-on Brian referenced to solve it as well.

 

We need more information.  does the problem occur when and only when there has been no audio for a time or does it occur at other times?  We assumed the problem occurred after a period of no audio but since the expected solutions don’t work, we have to see if our assumptions are correct.

Re: Enquiry about add-ons for Audio Production Software

Hi,

 

It rather depends on how you configure Reaper. If you set it’s output and input to a different sound interface, it won’t interfere with, nor be interfered with by, NVDA.

 

All the best

Hi, Does Reaper pick up NVDA while using it to record shows?  Does it matter how fast your prosessor works while using Reaper?

I was going to say, Reaper is one of the lightest audio production systems

in terms of resources, that I have used.  So if your computer takes that

long in Reaper, you won't have much success with any.

 

All the best

I suspect you will have that problem with any of the high-end audio

software. Even Audacity doesn't perform well on older machines, at least not

for transcoding or FX tasks.

I can't imagine that Protools will either; it has always been a resource

hog.

Well lets hope the community can continue to keep your standard you have shown us how to keep.

However its good that you are going places.

Over this last year or so due to covid and its ongoing goings on, a lot of my research projects at university especially one of my biggest ones have stopped.

There were a flurry of online jobs last year as everything got started but not so much.

Even my main job may or may not go ahead due to part of it coming from india.

And while technically that part is back to normal, there may not be anything left to do that needs me to do anything.

So yeah, congrats from all of us I think anyway.

Even though we have had our disagreements and such I have the highest respect for you and other mods on here.

 

Of course since my last drama, I don't tend to talk much on here even on win10 I respond privately to people if I need to otherwise I will just lerk here and watch.

I am always watching though.

Hello NVDA community,

First, I hope you are staying safe and healthy.

One day in early 2012, I came across a question posed on an NVDA list (it could have been this list which was hosted on a different forum platform then): can NVDA read Korean? That question led to an adventure that span nine years: translations, writing documentation, founding an international gathering of a community, releasing countless add-ons, moderating several NVDA lists and communities, and learning to incorporate lessons I have learned from the community in the next chapter of my life. In the midst of contributions, I recently hinted that I plan to retire from the community, and that golden opportunity has come:

On May 10, 2021, I was offered and accepted admission to master of arts (graduate school) program in communication studies at California State University, Los Angeles after graduating with highest honors (summa cum laude) from the same university.

After observing discussions between graduate students and thinking about balancing between graduate seminars, coaching speech and debate teams, and NVDA code contributions, I decided that school should take highest of highest of priorities. Graduate school is harder than undergraduate (college) education, especially when adding responsibility of teaching and coaching students competing in collegiate speech and debate tournaments. As much as I love programming and contributing to NVDA community, I cannot forget my immediate responsibilities of being a student and public speaking coach.

Therefore, I’m retiring from NVDA community contributions, effective September 1, 2021. This means:

  • I do have work to finish which might end up in NVDA as early as 2021.2, and I plan to dedicate this summer to completing outstanding pull requests.
  • I’m handing over most of my add-ons to the NVDA add-ons community for further maintenance. I do plan to maintain Add-on Updater and Windows 10 App Essentials – Add-on Updater is needed until NVDA comes with add-ons store, and Windows 10 App Essentials is needed to respond to ever-changing nature of Windows 10 ecosystem and to keep up with changes in NVDA development from time to time.
  • For NVDACon attendees and organizers, I will not be able to (and I really cannot) participate in NVDACon for a while.
  • For add-ons community, I will be stepping down as your chief admin and add-on reviewer this summer (details will be sent to add-ons list).

 

Several thank you’s:

  • Mick and Jamie: for starting it all fifteen years ago – April 2006 signaled the birth of a movement, which endures today.
  • NV Access staff, past and present: so many discussions, teaching me about life, programming, and group work.
  • Mesar Hameed: for teaching me about NVDA translation process and making sure community add-ons website was ready for the world in 2013.
  • Many NvDA users and enthusiasts in South Korea: for giving me an updated picture on Korean blindness community and help formulating strategies on translations and outreach nine years ago.
  • Many translators: for helping me adjust to the NVDA community when I was a novice translator in 2012.
  • Thousands of users: for teaching me many things – forum discussions, direct feedback, and countless other venues.
  • Nimer and NVDA Users list moderators, past and present: many collaborations and helpful advice.
  • For users of my add-ons: countless feedback, megabytes of debug logs (all were destroyed after analyses because they contain private information), and so many other things that made add-ons useful to this day.
  • NVDA supporters outside this forum: for your continued enthusiasm and support.
  • Microsoft engineers and fellow Windows Insiders: many opportunities to connect and learn from.
  • Folks from Mozilla, Google, and other organizations: for meeting new friends and colleagues.

 

One advice for future NVDA contributors: listen a lot. You can’t write effective add-ons and NVDA pull requests without listening to what others have to say. Before writing Python, sit down and have a conversation with users. Collaboration is the key, especially when talking to people online.

 

Although I’m retiring as a code contributor, I look forward to helping the NVDA community in other ways. Until then, graduate school is calling me – feel free to reach out if you seek advice on accessibility advocacy, programming in general, public speaking, and what not.

 

Before I close, I would like to take this time to invite resident high school and college students to invest in public speaking, or if you want, compete in speech and debate tournaments. You can’t just sit and ask others to advocate for you – you must do it yourself at some point in your life. One way to do so is learning public speaking and debate skills, and one venue is through competing in high school or college speech and debate tournaments. What strengthened my own advocacy skills was competing in speech tournaments, which also provided opportunities to tell the world about NVDA project – I even talked about NVDA and accessibility advocacy at a national speech tournament.

 

Advocacy will be important, especially as the world moves onto digital ways to accomplish more tasks: virtual reality, artificial intelligence, biometrics, web-based workplace, and telehealth. As high school and college students, you are in a place to inform and persuade people about baking accessibility into products. Right now, there aren’t many blind students competing in high school or college speech and debate tournaments, and I want to sincerely ask you to change the big picture. I’m willing to coach public speaking events (see the message header for contact email); this speech coaching offer from a nationally recognized former speech competitor and now an apprentice coach extends to any blind high school or college student (not only on NVDA Users list, but also in other communities).

 

Farewell, NVDA community. Thank you for teaching me many lessons over the last nine years, and for giving me opportunities to make a difference in the lives of many as an undergraduate college student and a volunteer code contributor. Love you all, and stay safe and healthy.

Another thing, it appears Bluetooth sound devices are universally
treated as second sound devices, rather than an accessory as are
traditional headphones. So, if you already have any sort of Bluetooth
headset or speaker and your laptop has Bluetooth, that's an easy
solution that won't cost you anything extra, all you have to do is
know which sound device stereo mix is using and route any sound you
don't want to the other device.

a US B cable or perhaps an old style patch chord with plugs, probably 1/8th

So I’ll continue to discuss recording programs but I’ll let others discuss

I can partly answer your question. Yes, this laptop does have a hook up
where I can hook it to the television. As for my friend’s apple tv. I’ll
have to ask if she has the hook up that you are asking if the tv has that.
My sound card is a realtec. I haven’t looked at its settings. In my old
windows 7 box I had total recorder I used it as a free trial but had to pay
for it 30 days later. This computer did not come with it. As for getting
another sound card, that’s kind of what I thought. You have to have a double

I’ll let those who know about the Apple TV answer the question. But if you
can hook up the television to the computer,, you can do so without recording
the screen-reader. If you are recording something like a stream that your
computer is playing, then you may have to use a second soundd card or get a
program like Total Recorder. But you are talking about connecting something
to the computer and recording it so the problem of recording the
screen-reader can be avoided with the right sound card settings.



Does your computer have a line-in jack? Does the apple television have a
line-out or headphone jack or both?

You should be able to record with Goldwave from the computer even if the

But if you are recording material the PC is actually playing, the most
simple solution may well be virtual recorder. then you can use MP3 Direct
Cut for editing. MP3 Direct cut can’t record from your computer itself
unless you have a soundcard that supports Stereo Mix, also known by other
names including What You Hear. On board sound, which a typical computer has
when sold, usually doesn’t support that option. An external USB sound card
that does is the usual solution. But Virtual Recorder solves the problem.
It can record what your computer plays even if the onboard sound or sound
card you are using doesn’t.

If you are just wanting to record programs and not do any serious editing,
then all you'll need is mp3 Direct Cut. This will do the job nicely and will
also let you edit out commercials or the beginning and the end of the show
if you get a few minutes you don't need. NVDA has an add on for mp3 Direct
Cut and works very well. Best of all, it's FREE! :)

That all depends on which audio device you are recording through, how you

Does it matter how fast your prosessor works while using Reaper?

Again, for doing what? Playing back a 100+ track project with lots of
virtual instruments and effects processing? Yes. For recording a single

One day in early 2012, I came across a question posed on an NVDA list (it could have been this list which was hosted on a different forum platform then): can NVDA read Korean? That question led to an adventure that span nine years: translations, writing documentation, founding an international gathering of a community, releasing countless add-ons, moderating several NVDA lists and communities, and learning to incorporate lessons I have learned from the community in the next chapter of my life. In the midst of contributions, I recently hinted that I plan to retire from the community, and that golden opportunity has come:

On May 10, 2021, I was offered and accepted admission to master of arts (graduate school) program in communication studies at California State University, Los Angeles after graduating with highest honors (summa cum laude) from the same university.

After observing discussions between graduate students and thinking about balancing between graduate seminars, coaching speech and debate teams, and NVDA code contributions, I decided that school should take highest of highest of priorities. Graduate school is harder than undergraduate (college) education, especially when adding responsibility of teaching and coaching students competing in collegiate speech and debate tournaments. As much as I love programming and contributing to NVDA community, I cannot forget my immediate responsibilities of being a student and public speaking coach.

Therefore, I’m retiring from NVDA community contributions, effective September 1, 2021. This means:

  • I do have work to finish which might end up in NVDA as early as 2021.2, and I plan to dedicate this summer to completing outstanding pull requests.
  • I’m handing over most of my add-ons to the NVDA add-ons community for further maintenance. I do plan to maintain Add-on Updater and Windows 10 App Essentials – Add-on Updater is needed until NVDA comes with add-ons store, and Windows 10 App Essentials is needed to respond to ever-changing nature of Windows 10 ecosystem and to keep up with changes in NVDA development from time to time.
  • For NVDACon attendees and organizers, I will not be able to (and I really cannot) participate in NVDACon for a while.
  • For add-ons community, I will be stepping down as your chief admin and add-on reviewer this summer (details will be sent to add-ons list).

 

Several thank you’s:

  • Mick and Jamie: for starting it all fifteen years ago – April 2006 signaled the birth of a movement, which endures today.
  • NV Access staff, past and present: so many discussions, teaching me about life, programming, and group work.
  • Mesar Hameed: for teaching me about NVDA translation process and making sure community add-ons website was ready for the world in 2013.
  • Many NvDA users and enthusiasts in South Korea: for giving me an updated picture on Korean blindness community and help formulating strategies on translations and outreach nine years ago.
  • Many translators: for helping me adjust to the NVDA community when I was a novice translator in 2012.
  • Thousands of users: for teaching me many things – forum discussions, direct feedback, and countless other venues.
  • Nimer and NVDA Users list moderators, past and present: many collaborations and helpful advice.
  • For users of my add-ons: countless feedback, megabytes of debug logs (all were destroyed after analyses because they contain private information), and so many other things that made add-ons useful to this day.
  • NVDA supporters outside this forum: for your continued enthusiasm and support.
  • Microsoft engineers and fellow Windows Insiders: many opportunities to connect and learn from.
  • Folks from Mozilla, Google, and other organizations: for meeting new friends and colleagues.

 

One advice for future NVDA contributors: listen a lot. You can’t write effective add-ons and NVDA pull requests without listening to what others have to say. Before writing Python, sit down and have a conversation with users. Collaboration is the key, especially when talking to people online.

 

Although I’m retiring as a code contributor, I look forward to helping the NVDA community in other ways. Until then, graduate school is calling me – feel free to reach out if you seek advice on accessibility advocacy, programming in general, public speaking, and what not.

 

Before I close, I would like to take this time to invite resident high school and college students to invest in public speaking, or if you want, compete in speech and debate tournaments. You can’t just sit and ask others to advocate for you – you must do it yourself at some point in your life. One way to do so is learning public speaking and debate skills, and one venue is through competing in high school or college speech and debate tournaments. What strengthened my own advocacy skills was competing in speech tournaments, which also provided opportunities to tell the world about NVDA project – I even talked about NVDA and accessibility advocacy at a national speech tournament.

 

Advocacy will be important, especially as the world moves onto digital ways to accomplish more tasks: virtual reality, artificial intelligence, biometrics, web-based workplace, and telehealth. As high school and college students, you are in a place to inform and persuade people about baking accessibility into products. Right now, there aren’t many blind students competing in high school or college speech and debate tournaments, and I want to sincerely ask you to change the big picture. I’m willing to coach public speaking events (see the message header for contact email); this speech coaching offer from a nationally recognized former speech competitor and now an apprentice coach extends to any blind high school or college student (not only on NVDA Users list, but also in other communities).

 

Farewell, NVDA community. Thank you for teaching me many lessons over the last nine years, and for giving me opportunities to make a difference in the lives of many as an undergraduate college student and a volunteer code contributor. Love you all, and stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Joseph S. Lee

Hi Joseph,
Congrats on getting into graduate school! Knowing you as I do, it
wouldn't surprise me one bit if this isn't the last I hear of you. I
can't believe it's been almost 14 years since we first met on the
BrailleNote list. I still have that old unit which I wrote so many of
my early messages on, can't believe it'll be 15 this June!
