Re: teamtalk latest issues

 

Maybe you should report that.

I don't use teamtalk public servers though because my main use was for spaciffic servers I manually entered into site manager.

The biggest reason to get the later versions are usually codec and security updates.

Hi all.

currently teamtalk 5.7.1 latest beta and stable build has an issue refferenced here.

https://github.com/BearWare/TeamTalk5/issues/869

A few people including myself have had an issue with the latest version.

It appears at least in preffs that saving preffs after changing sound devices which are always using default device or internal devices for whatever reason simply will not work.

Users do say it will hang for a long time and will possibly not come back.

For now I'd go back to the previous version of 5.6 if you really need the program to save settings.

The issue sadly does take nvda out forcing me to restart.

This is not in itself an issue as even if nvda did not freez I still wouldn't be able to use the program.

The log fragment etc is refferenced in the issue though I do want to get a teamtalk log if I can find out how to generate it.

I don't need teamtalk for the moment but just a heads up, if you want the latest classic there is a showstopping bug right now.

Basically what it boils down to is you can't save configuration at all!











NVDA and Edge Chromium

Hi,
I recently updated my computer and after the Update, I'm having difficulty accessing the favorites menu. I can open the menu, but I can't seem to navigate it. It calls it a dialogue, but it's like it locks up.
Is anyone having that issue? If so, do you know of a work around?

You could try removing the voices and adding them again

 

And RESTART the system

Hi,

 

This is a brand new laptop for a customer.  I have just upgraded it to Windows 10 H2 and installed NVDA.

 

I have two identical laptops here, one works absolutely fine, and the other will not load the Onecore voices.

 

It appears in the list, but then says Error loading Synthesiser driver. It works with Espeak fine, but I think they would prefer the default voice.

 

Narrator speaks fine with it, and even works if I go into Speech settings in Windows and Preview the voice.

 

What I have tried so far is to completely remove and reinstall NVDA, including user settings.

 

I have also tried resetting the configuration with Control+NVDA+R three times.

 

Again, the synth appears in the list, but errors when loading.

 

I saw a similar message on this list from Louise, so the next thing I am going to try is to check compatibility settings in NVDA to make sure nothing is checked.  Other than that though, I am not sure what is going on here. Other than that, I’m almost ready to reset the PC, if no-one has any ideas.

 

Here is the log excerpt that I get when trying to load the synth:-

 

INFO - core.main (16:48:49.235) - MainThread (5932):

Of course, there are voices available, because they work with Narrator.

Copying and pasting problem in games written in BGT

mustafa elçiçek
 

Hello,

While the NVDA Extension Global plugin enabled, I cannot copy and paste in games written with BGT. I mean, I want to paste the clipboard text into a message window, I press CTRL +V but it won't paste in any way.

However, if I press Alt + CTRL + V, then I can paste that way. From the plugin's settings, I set all features as loaded, but again, nothing has changed. Of course, I leave the announcements feature of the Clipboard commands loaded. When I set the announcement feature of clipboard commands to "Don't install", there is no problem. So copy and paste process works as expected.

What do you think the problem might be caused by?

Re: Farewell, NVDA community: retiring from NVDA contributions, effective September 1, 2021

It has been wonderful to get to know you through NVDA over the past
several years and your commitment to this community has truly been

Thanks.

On 5/10/2021 5:48 AM, Joseph Lee wrote:

I received permission from Nimer regarding the following letter:

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: navigating headings

Monty,

 

Great that you discovered the “h” command for navigating to each heading! For specific headings, when in browse mode on the Internet (that is what you are in when you first open a web site), just press the number 3 key on the main keyboard and that will jump through all the level 3 headings and ignore any other heading.

 

Similarly, if you want to find the first place where significant material begins on  a web page, you can press the number 1 key to jump over all preliminary material directly to Heading 1.

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Hi List,

 

I am   using;

 

www. https://nnels.ca/

 

more these days.

It is an  national network  of equitable library services.

It is available to all print disabled Canadians with a  local library  card.

 

When I do a search   on this web site, I find myself pressing the letter “h”  for headings  til  I get to the first result.

When I get to the first result, nvda says “heading llevel 3”.

 

Is there a key press, combo I can press to jump to the first “heading level 3”  without  going through all the previous headings?

 

Please, don’t kick me off the island,  because I did not find the answer to my question in the quick start guide.

 

Cheers,

 

Monte

Re: Farewell, NVDA community: retiring from NVDA contributions, effective September 1, 2021

Joseph, I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for your years of service to the NVDA community. They are greatly appreciated.


I look forward to hearing how your studies go and where they will lead you in the future.

I received permission from Nimer regarding the following letter:

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: navigating headings

Sascha Cowley
 

You can navigate to the next heading at a particular level by pressing that level's number on the number row. So to jump to the next level 3 heading, you would press 3. As with all of these browse-mode shortcuts, you can jump backward by pressing Shift + <command>.

Thanks! I definitely didn't think of installing this one... forgot it
was necessary. Haven't set up the Polaris as a display in a really
long time.

Hi Clement,
I expect you will need to download and install the HIMS USB Driver:
http://www.himsintl.com/upload/HIMS_USB_Driver_v25.zip
This zip file has one executable file, but the installation consists of
two drivers which run one after the other, so be sure to see it through
to the end.
Thanks

Am I missing something here? It seems to be connecting to my computer
just fine.
