Re: nvda and braille displays

In a PC keyboard you press Control on the first file, maintain pressed and with arrows select the others. Press space in the ones you want to select...

Have you tried to simulate that with the Braille display keys?

Hello all,

I now use my focus 14 braille display with nvda and it really works well.

One question however.

I want to select three files that are in alphabetical order and copy them to the clipboard before transferring them elsewhere.

Copying and pasting is fine but just how to select the three files I’m not too sure of.

Thanks all,

Kind regards,

also where could I find info on with NVDA and the NLS eReader (based on Humanware’s Brailleiant and Camillion 20 models), can one use from the display Alt+f4 and other commands?

Brian, you asked what need does this address? It addresses the need for people to have clearer, more familiar-sounding espeak voices with a choice of speaking styles and inflections or intonations. Since most people like Klatt-based voices, such modifications would give people several different klatt-based espeak voices to choose from. Also it may be helpful for a good-sounding klatt-voice with a familiar speaking style to be set as the espeak default voice, rather than the non-klatt harsher-sounding voices.

Hi,

I just updated Notepad ++ to version 8.

After that, when I use ctrl pageup or pagedown to switch tab, nvda will no longer speak the new tab title.

Any way to fix this?

Re: Renaming File Extensions in Bulk

 

I would also select from word options the file you want to save.

The only reason you would want to save documents as doc files like in word 2003 or earlier is if you have to run with an older system.

If you really do need to run with an older system or more likely a multios system such as with linux or mac, I would save all word documents as ritchtext rtf format or text as its universal.

Obviously there are limitations with both.

If you want to continue word documents as doc, I would save them as word 97 or even 3.0-4.0 so they would work with other older systems.

The universal access extentions are rtf, html, and pdf.

You are supposed to be able to save with the open data format of open and libreoffice but who knows.

When I ran powerpoints back in 2006 using office xp I saved them from my university as ritchtext so I would get the text.

However the only reason I would probably even bother changing would be linux, as I am unsure if there are docx readers about but libre and openoffice can read those.

The only other reason I'd even contemplate would be space.

Lets face it docx and pdfs can get huge so can doc files, rtf doesn't have this issue and can be opened anywhere.

But again, you would need a reason why.

While I do have access to docx and doc files I only have office here as a way to read my old word 2003 and 97 files which I had for my flatting course and can't easily be read in jarte.

Most of my real work like diaries are done in plane text.


Everythhing else like books are epub and pdf  as well as html.

But then my line of work as a freelance tester puts me in the position where I don't need to write reports of any sort or at least not anything complicated.

It sounds as though those utilities actually convert the files from one format to another.  I don’t know if any information such as formatting may be lost or changed, but if you want to have a different format file, that’s the way to do it.  Changing the extension means you have a file of one kind matched with an incorrect extension. 
changing the format means the file extension and the format of the file match.

While completely indorsing what others have said, if you really do have
some good reason for doing this, a tool like the following might help you.
I do not confirm its accessibility, or guarantee it in any other way. It
is just the first Google result for "convert multiple files from .docx to
.doc".

Re: Renaming File Extensions in Bulk

 

Well you can't, docx is the xml document file used for word formats 2007 and higher so it probably won't work.

but ok, press winkey and r.

type cmd and hit enter

then go to the letter of your drive, lets call it f

go to the directory the files are in by typing cd dirname\subdir, etc and hit enter.

if this is all in root then don't bother about that.

type ren or rename *.docx *.doc and hit enter.

all the files will be renamed.

Now weathher they will work is another story.

Docx is the new word document format doc is the older format from word 97 and below.

In Microsoft Word (and, actually, most places) this is done by:

1. typing out whatever text it is you want to use for the link
2. copying the URL you want that text to go to
3. Select that text
4. Hit CTRL+K
5. Paste the URL into Address edit box (which is what you're in once the dialog is opened via CTRL+K).
6. Hitting the OK button.

After that, the text itself will appear as a hyperlink which, when activated, goes to the website whose address you provided.

Well it maybe because of the cloud glitch that was about last night.

But I was sleeping.

Just FYI, my first acquaintance with this utility was via a recommendation on one of the screen reader or other blind-centric technology lists.

And doing a bulk file conversion to a different file format, which changes the extension on the files so converted as part of that, is just fine.  That's completely different than just renaming something and giving it a file extension that is not consistent with the actual file format.

A big old, SECONDED!

I've seen bulk renaming used as a trick to allow certain files with extensions that can't be attached to email (e.g., EXE) be changed to something else, but the recipient knows they have to reverse the process on the other end.

I cannot fathom why anyone would want to change DOCX files to DOC files by extension change.  You need to open them and save them in DOC format, which is different than DOCX format.  Renaming RandomFile.docx to RandomFile.doc does not, in any way, shape, or form, make it "become" a true doc file, and anything trying to open it as though it were a true doc file is not going to be happy.
