Hello,

A little while ago I looked at this.

I have now produced my own guide to assist anybody wishing to use nvda with a braille display.

It includes commands I have learned myself and those in the input gestures section of nvda settings.

Its my first attempt at a subject I am still keen to learn more about. However using these commands I can now control my pc with a braille display alone.

The guide is attached for anybody on this group to use.

Hello!

 

According with my experience:

Regarding speech, your PC will talk with your selected synth in spite of any configuration of remote machine...

Regarding Braille, your Braille display will work if the remote machine and yours are set to auto... If each is set to a different Braille display, I think it will not work...

Accessible Soundboard Application

Chris Smart
 

Does anyone know of a soundboard application that is accessible with NVDA?


A soundboard is usually a program that allows someone to have many little audio clips cued up and assigned to hotkeys, so they can be played instantly when their hotkey is pushed.

It would be even better if said hotkeys were available globally.

Hi, I am Ganesh from Hyderabad, India.

While using WinWord with NVDA, I got the following doubts.



1. Is there any short Cut key to know the page number?

For example:

If I am reading 50 pages document.

I read few pages. I wants to stop here. now how can I know, in which

page I am on?

2. In the same way can I know, line number?

3. If I press page up, my cursor will be in first line of previous page.

In the same way is there any trick, so that I can go to end of the same
page?

4. Is there any shortcut key to read whole page?

Re: Reading characters phonetically

Chris Mullins
 

Hi Steve

The numeric elements on a full size keyboard are referred to as NumPad, which is the separate keypad on the right hand side of the keyboard, and NumRow, which is the top row of the main body of keys  on the keyboard.  The commands you refer to use the NumRow keys, not the Function keys.  Use NVDA+NumRow2 to toggle speak typed characters and NVDA+NumRow 3 to toggle speak typed words.  Alternatively, use NVDA+Control+k to open the Keyboard Settings dialog, where you can set these and other keyboard related parameters.

 

Cheers

Chris

If your cursor is on the character, or the review cursor is, pressing the

numpad 2 key twice (desktop mode), will read the character phonetically.

 

If you want it to just read phonetically if you pause on a character while

using the arrow keys, like iOS Voiceover does in character mode, there is

an add-on for that, although I can't find it currently.

Re: Signal desktop

Olcay AŞCI
 

Hi,

If you need to use Signal Desktop to perform a task, it's possible. But Current experience is worse than Whatsapp app.
With the shortcut keys of the application, it becomes easier to focus on areas such as chat, message history and to perform some tasks; but even that doesn't save the situation from being completely bad.
Since each of the message history items is a separate focusable item, it is possible to navigate the messages with the arrow keys, while the tab key navigates over the messages instead of navigating between these sections. Areas that are not active in use are visible on the screen and there are a few key audio issues.

Re: Welsh language voices

Gloomy_Apple
 

   Not a Welsh native, but a learner. From what I see the situation looks quite sad. There used to be two Welsh voices from Ivona - Geraint and Gwyneth - in both a Welsh-language (South) and Welsh English version. I used to have them for a long time but then lost them irretrievably. Can't say a whole lot about how authentic their Welsh was, because mine was too much beginner at the time, but I think Ivona was generally fairly good at the linguistic aspect of their voices. Now that the company has been taken by Amazon years ago, the voices can be no longer purchased directly from them for Sapi5 though and are no longer supported. There are some places where you can get them, like from HarpoSoftware, but when I tried demos they seemed rather buggy.

   And then we have Espeak, which is not surprisingly not very authentic-sounding in Welsh at all. I guess I've once heard that there was a Welsh Festival voice but never heard it or tested it and I generally don't have much experience with Festival at all. And that's it, as far as I know.

   If someone else knows more, I'd be happy to hear as well.

   I am sort of silently hoping for CereProc to make the move now, as they are a Scottish company who have already created Scottish Gaelic and Irish Gaelic voices, as well as many regional dialect British voices so why not Welsh. As a North Welsh learner I think it would be particularly fun to have the voices for these two dialects, but that's probably a total utopia for now.

Hi

In addition to what Luke described, pressing NumPad 5 3 times will spell out the current word, NumPad 8 3 times will spell out the current line, both phonetically.

Cheers

Chris

If your cursor is on the character, or the review cursor is, pressing the

numpad 2 key twice (desktop mode), will read the character phonetically.

 

If you want it to just read phonetically if you pause on a character while

using the arrow keys, like iOS Voiceover does in character mode, there is

an add-on for that, although I can't find it currently.

Hi.

You need to press insert and the number 2 on the top number row to turn reading of characters off. then press insert number 3 to turn on the reading of words if you haven't already done so. I hope this helps?

Cheers,

Mo.

                Hi Chris. My NVDA screenreader insists on reading every character typed whereas I want to get it to say a word when the spacebar has been pressed. I tried insert key (on the number keypad) with f3 and though things had been changed ok. But unfortunately nothing seems to have changed and now if I try insert key with f3 nothing happens. Any help please? Cheers, Steve

Re: Finding Pairing Code for Bluetooth Keyboard using NVDA - How to?

 

Another potentially helpful document for those either transitioning from JAWS to NVDA or who simply want to determine how to do what one of the two does in the other of the two.

I do not understand why some seek to separate a person from their actions.  The self is composed of an individual’s thoughts, actions, and expression, which are contained in and actuated by the body.  What you do and say is the clearest indicator of who you are.

Re: Finding Pairing Code for Bluetooth Keyboard using NVDA - How to?

 

Dennis,

The following, from the accessibilitycentral.net page, Migrating from other screen readers to the NVDA screen reader, that may prove useful to you:

Is there something equivalent to JAWS cursor and other mouse commands in NVDA?

Yes. The screen review allows reading the contents of the current window. To switch to screen review, press NVDA + Numpad 7. Once you locate the position where you wish to perform mouse clicks, route the mouse by pressing NVDA + Numpad slash, then press Numpad slash for left mouse click or Numpad star for right mouse click. To switch to object review, press NVDA + Numpad 1.
