Re: Nvda addons

 

Hi,

At least SystrayList was recently updated to be compatible with 2021.1.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Joseph,

OK, I downloaded your add-ons--which or some reason i thought I had properly updated. However some others have not been updated. They are:
an extended add module for Winamp music player
clock
day of the week
Mozilla apps enhancement
systray list
I checked the website: https://addons.nvda-project.org and none of these have yet been made compatible.

Hi,

Can you go through the list of add-ons you've got and tell me the ersions of Add-on Updater and Windows App Essentials you are using? If you've got:

  • Add-on Updater 21.05.1 or earlier
  • Windows 10 App Essentials earlier than 21.06

You must install these, restart NVDA right away, and then check for NVDA updates.

Cheers,

In NVDA, most Microsoft OneCore voices are the same voice for me.

John Isige
 

Hi all.


So I've got all of the extra English OneCore voices installed, so Richard, Linda, James, that kind of thing. For some reason, if I set NVDA to use the OneCore voices and change voices, all of them are David, except for Zira and Mark. I'm pretty sure this worked at one point, but it's obviously broken now. I've tried restarting with addons disabled, and I still have the same issue.


I know the voices are installed properly because if I go into settings/time & language/speech, the voices show up there and preview as themselves. Additionally, if I run Narrator, I can change to each voice in the list and it's actually the correct voice. Anybody have any ideas? It's not vitally important that I get this working or anything, I mostly use Code Factory's SAPI 5 Eloquence, but it's pretty strange, and I like to fix those kinds of things if I can.

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

Justin Harford
 

Hello

If you are talking about running Windows on an M1  mac, VMware fusion has this update on their blog:  https://blogs.vmware.com/teamfusion/2021/04/fusion-on-apple-silicon-progress-update.html

As others have mentioned, Boot Camp is going bye-bye, so your only option in the long run is going to be to use a virtual machine. I am currently running VMware fusion, with NVDA and DragonDictate on a 2018 Mac mini and it works okay, but mind you that it takes a lot of processing power. It looks like it is going to be a little while before VMware fusion can run on an M1 mac.

Hello. If your employer has shipped you the new mac, you won’t be able to run NVDA on the new macs with the m1 chip as you can’t run windows on the new mac. However, the mac uses Voiceover as its built in screen reader, and the concepts between mac and windows are the same. That is, the mac has a desktop, but the differences is that with applications on the mac, you use the app store to download mac apps and you can of course download mac apps from the internet, but the thing is you don’t have a start menu but you have a menu bar, and your applications go in a folder called applications and like on windows you can put short cuts on the desktop. If you want to learn how to use the mac with speech, here is a user guide that’ll show you how to use the screen reader on the mac.

Voiceover User Guide for Mac - Apple Support

Also, applications don’t install on the mac, meaning, you just run the application from the desktop or applications folder and away you go. Also, the apple macs and iPhones are designed to work together, and the thing is that there is no freezing of programs on the mac, and if applications on the mac happens to enter an unresponsive state, Voice Over will not crash. Rather, it’ll say, “busy.”

Subject: [nvda] Running NVDA on a MacBook with BootCamp or similar?

 

Hi,

I consulted Google before sending this but I only came across this situation for NVDA testing purposes so I don’t want to presume that information also applies to the end user experience. I accepted a new developer job and found out today my new employer is shipping me a MacBook Pro as my work computer. This was surprising considering we’ll be developing in C#.Net in Visual Studio, an IDE for which I do not believe there is even a Mac version at this time. Sounds like we’ll be using BootCamp or something similar. I have zero experience with Macs and am terrified this is going to be a huge and unexpected learning curve that will slow down my onboarding. Anyway, is it possible to use NVDA in a Windows mode of Mac and does it work just like on a real PC? One of those articles I skimmed mentioned that the Mac doesn’t have an Insert key, the default NVDA key and that there might be some other keyboard discrepancies, but I would plan on just connecting an external Windows-style keyboard anyway, provided that will work. Any reassurance, tips or guidance on this would be hugely appreciated. I’ve already resigned from my current company and will be starting the new job in two weeks so I’m kind of freaking out right now, Ha.

 

Thank you,

Luke

Re: Nvda addons

Hi Quentyn,

I would like to contact the developer of Clipspeak, but when I wrote him, the message has been returned to me as undeliverable.

It seems to me uneasy to contact some developer.

Jarek

Dne 12.07.2021 v 14:43 Quentin Christensen napsal(a):

Hi Jarek,

There is a page on the add-ons site listing the status of various add-ons for NVDA 2021.1: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/nvdacompat.en.html <https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/nvdacompat.en.html>

I can see ClipSpeak listed there as not yet compatible - it might be worth double checking with the developer of that add-on as to where it is at.  I'm not sure about total commander.

Note that as new versions of add-ons are released, you will need to find them and download them manually - that process is not automated, although there is an "add-on updater" add-on which does do this, and which you can also find on the add-ons site: https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html <https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html>

Kind regards

Quentin.

You cannot send a file through nvda remote, just clipboard text. See the group archives for more info.

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: Nvda addons

Hi Group,

I was all set to install the latest version of NVDA, but I was given a warning that all but 2 of my add ons are incompatible. These incompatible add ons include Add On updater the one I just installed 2 days ago and Windows app essentials which I updated a week or so ago.  Is this information correct or did a newer group of updates for these add ons occur in the past day or so?
