Re: Are there up to date add-ons for Winamp?

Gene
 

This should really be on the discussion list, but I don’t know who is on that list who is participating in this thread.   I’ll make the following point as briefly as I can.
 
Just because Winamp is old doesn’t mean it may not have real advantages because it has been around so long and people have developed utilities or other  support for it.
 
The late and missed Carlos developed a very easy to use time marker utility.  I often use for time markers when I’m listening to a book using Winamp.  JAWS has a time marker feature as well. 
 
I don’t know what other players may or may not have such a feature.
 
Will those who want to discuss this further do so on the chat list, at least if you want me to reply with information about the utility?  Or write me off list.

I can learn it. Chris Scarstid taught me how to use hot keys with various players  like winamp and windows media player.  If there’s a will there’s a way.

It's a media player like Winamp. I didn't say it will behave exactly

like Winamp. You will need to learn how to use it, like any other new

program you've never used before.

 

 

I don't think it needs an add-on, but I have no idea what your

experience will be like.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Re: Are there up to date add-ons for Winamp?

 

Well technically there is supposed to be a new winamp coming out.

There is wacup which is the winamp community revamp project, but in may radiognome has again said its going to continue developing winamp6, and has asked for more developers but who knows.

Re: Acapela Voices V1.7: Another False Positive Conflict With MalwareBytes Premium

 

It's also worth reporting false positives to whatever scanning engine maker where they are occurring.

They do happen, and most of the time they get fixed pretty promptly when reported to the various scanning engines.  I've had several corrected for Windows Defender/Security and at least one for Malwarebytes (a while back).

Acapela Voices V1.7: Another False Positive Conflict With MalwareBytes Premium

David Goldfield
 

This is for those who use or are thinking of purchasing the Acapela addon for NVDA. In a previous version of NVDA I noticed that my Acapela voices would no longer load. I eventually traced the problem to MalwareBytes Premium identifying colibri.dll as a form of malware. I informed Acapela about this problem, created an exclusion for the file and promptly forgot about it. After upgrading NVDA to version 2021.1 I installed V1.7 of the Acapela voices and received a “cannot load acaTTS synthesizer driver” message when attempting to switch to the Acapela synthesizer. I actually didn’t even remember the MalwareBytes issue I had earlier and assumed that it might have been either a licensing issue or a corrupted file within the addon’s folder. I tried deactivating and reactivating my license and even uninstalled and reinstalled NVDA, deleting the contents of my Appdata\NVDA folder for good measure in the process. I contacted Acapela, who responded quickly and asked a few questions regarding the contents of specific folders. Finally, they asked what antivirus program I was using which jogged my memory of the false positive I received earlier from MalwareBytes. Sure enough MalwareBytes showed that I had several notifications which were the results of the program quarantining yet another file that it didn’t like, that being acatts.dll. Unfortunately, MalwareBytes does not seem to provide any sort of obvious audible method for notifying users that it just quarantined a file, something I plan to reach out to them about. Bottom line: I added that file to the MalwareBytes allow list and my Acapela voices now function as expected. I sent Acapela the relevant portion of the MalwareBytes report and asked that they please look into this. I just wanted to pass on this information to anyone else considering the purchase of these voices or to those who may be wrestling with this issue.

Re: Are there up to date add-ons for Winamp?

 

Hi all,

Extended Winamp add-on is being updated. For this add-on, editing the add-on manifest isn't enough - a change was made to NVDA that requires this add-on to be modified. As a result, it will drop support for NVDA releases earlier than 2020.1.

As for when the new version will be released, it depends on when it will be published on community add-ons website.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Are there up to date add-ons for Winamp?

I was also one of those who held onto Winamp long after it was obvious that it would likely never return. I recently switched to VLC Media Player. This product also has similar keystrokes that are in Winamp and, in fact, are more intuitive and can also be configured. It has a dizzying array of options in its preferences dialog. After a short time of using the program I’m to the point where I wouldn’t switch back to Winamp even if development resumed.

I don’t know why.  When I tested the default, it had inflection.  I never tried to change it but it inflected more or less the way JAWS does.

 

There is something wrong somewhere.  Perhaps the developer would have suggestions.

I haven’t used the demo for a long time, but there is a way to see a lot of settings for SAPI 5 Eloquence.  You can open a program window.  I believe Eloquence is placed on the dessktop and pressing enter on the icon opens the window.  You may well find a setting that changes what you want.

 

I still have the icon on my desktop even though the demo expired awhile ago.  There is a field that says something like force pitch changes.  Perhaps that will affect what you want.

I own the SAPI5 version. When it does that, I need to deactivate it and paste in the key and reactivate it again. It happens periodically, and I have no idea why, because I'm connected to the net when it happens, and I'm connected pretty much every day, so it shouldn't be missing a check. The addon Eloquence used to have issues, but I tried it pretty recently and it sounded exactly like the SAPI5 one. So if Eloquence is what you're after, you could always uninstall the addon and try that one. Doesn't solve your actual problem I know, sorry about that.

Re: Pass next key through

 

Janet,

Another thought, and that's all it is, is looking into whether the program you intend to use allows it's own shortcuts to be tweaked.

Since you use NVDA everywhere it makes little sense to redefine what you're already familiar with.  But if you're not yet familiar with the specific command structure of the program you're going to use, and it's possible to remap, you might want to consider it.

Re: Are there up to date add-ons for Winamp?

 

Winamp itself has been out of support for years.  There's little to no point to updating an add-on to support out of support software.

I know that some people still use and love Winamp, but as out of support software it should not be discussed on the NVDA main group.  And I'd even go so far as to say discussion of an add-on for out-of-support software is questionable, though I'd certainly not prevent it as add-ons that still exist and are actively maintained fit the group description.

You may find it a little inconvenient, but if the add-on isn’t updated, you can use an earlier portable version of NVDA with the add-on.  You can create a desktop icon and a shortcut key to run it.
