I never experienced any issue. I paused the updates briefly but then went back to the normal schedule/channel and everything ran fine. I think it may only have ffected those who have firefox profiles. Running 89.0.d with the latest NVDA plus a now ratehr old version of JFW with no problems.

A few weeks back there was discussion that a Firefox update wasn't very

accessible in a few ways but that a fix would be coming. Has the new

Firefox with these fixes out by now? I just got a notice that a new

version is available and just want to know if I should go ahead and get

it or still wait a bit.

 

Thanks.

Re: Looks like Code Factory has updated their voices to support NVDA 2021.1

 

Yeah, there are ml I assume mobile voices and several others some of them may have been updated.

I just got the sapi update after reading this message.

A note, there are a lot of updated voices, so you will have to uninstall then reinstall all the voices that have updates after updating your eloquence and vocaliser sapi package.

Also please note that a lot of voices will become uninstalled after the updates but their names will remain in the registry.

To fix it appears all you need to do is uninstall all the voices that have updates, and reinstall all voices.

I wish there was some way to remove all the broken voices or to update all the voices but oh well, its taken me an hour and the voices are installed.

Several new voices as well as ml varients so maybe ml means mobile they don't sound much different.

Its good to see a few more voices especially another one for australia.

sending a file through NVDA remote

Hi,
I have successfully pushed my clipboard to someone's computer that I was controlling via NVDA remote, but now I want to send a file.
I went into remote and copied the link and send, and I don't know if it went, or if it did, where it went to on the other computer.
Thanks.

Re: Running NVDA on a MacBook with BootCamp or similar?

Then your the only one running it. Because no one on the mac lists can get it working because NVDA don't work on arm chips or arm versions of windows. Not even the NVDA programmers could get it working.

Works surprisingly well, i do have the base MacBook Air with 8Gb of RAM and the performance is surprising. So if you have more RAM to dedicate to the VM than i do the performance will be even better.

I do however, find the current performance acceptable.

I've been using Windows via \Bootcamp on my Mac for about a year without

If your Macbook is going to be an one of the recently released with an

Re: DECtalk Add-on for NVDA

Josh Kennedy <joshknnd1982@...>
 

I found Roger dudley on linkedin. Roger Dudley is the person who owns or used to won speech-fx-inc who bought decTalk from Fonix corporation, formerly digital equipment corporation back in the 1980s and 1990s. And so I tried contacting him onlinkedin several times and I got no reply. I found a phone number for speech-fx-inc and I called it and it is a dead discontinued phone number. I also getting in touch with people on linkedin who have connections to Roger Dudley and they tried helping me to get in touch with speech-fx, and they got no where just like me. Long story short it seems like decTalk is abandoned. Jake Gross's website has NVDA has decTalk addons.

AVPageView text frame in Adobe Reader

Dear NVDA community,
when I open a pdf file with Adobe Reader, focus tends to land on
something called AVPageView text frame. The arrow keys do not read
anything in this control, and it has no child objects. When I alt+tab
out of then back into Adobe Reader, I can read the file just fine.
Observed with NVDA 2020.4 and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Continuous
Release | Version 2021.005.20048.
JAWS does not have this problem.
Any advice is appreciated.

Re: Code Factory voices for nvda

 

Well if you have your atguys link, if the sapi voices for eloquence and vocaliser are anything to go on just download it from your atguys email link and its going to work.

Please read the message just posted about voices and such.

I wish they told me about the voices because while its all fixed now with the voices all reinstalled, I have used systems with broken voices and it screws up sapi big time, the only way to fix it is to do a clean install of the os.

This is probably something I will bring up with code factory because while its fixed now there is no way to get rid of the voices that are broken and if I was told an update was going to require extra steps I would have uninstalled all voices before updating.
