locked Intel or AMD: does the processor make a difference to NVDA

Pranav Lal
 

Hi all,

I am planning to upgrade my desktop. Do CPU brands make a difference to how
well a screen reader runs? Will NVDA work as well with an intel CPU as with
a AMD CPU?

I suspect it does not but prefer checking.

Re: Problem with NVDA Verbosity using MS Outlook

Luke
 

Hello, I’m a little late here, but if you want a keyboard shortcut to make Outlook work faster and not deal with all that nonsense, this is what I do.,  Press NVDA+ n to bring up NVDA menu, hit right arrow on preferences and arrow down to input gestures, arrow down to document formatting or press D for first letter navigation, then arrow right to expand, then arrow down to until you hear toggles on the reporting of tables and arrow right to expand. Then  Make your input gesture for the keyboard shortcut. So next time you are in Outlook and are in a message and NVDA is giving all that verbosity and slowing things down, press the keyboard combination you made as a input gesture. If you want reporting of tables back on, press the keyboard combination again. Good luck! By the way I am using Outlook 365.

Hello,

 

I’m new here, and I have a problem and a question, please.


When I open any message in MS Outlook, mixed with the text I hear table, out of table, link, out of link, line, row, graphic, and so on. I find difficult to read messages with all this description.


What can I do to hear only the text of a message? Thanks for any help,

 

Rena

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Re: Does the colour or font size of text in an image matter when performingOCR

 

Short answer, contrast between lettering and background is the most important factor unless you have really small print.   Color, not so much.

Re: Open a link in ui.browseableMessage()?

Rui Fontes
 

Hello!


Using some of my add-ons code:


    _NRIniFile = os.path.join(globalVars.appArgs.configPath, "NVDARecord.html")

    message = u"<h1>{title}</h1><br>".format(title=_("List of commands for running add-ons"))
    for addon in sorted(addonDic, key = lambda item: item.lower()):
        message += u"<h2>{addonSum}</h2>\n<table>\n<tr><th>".format(addonSum=addon)
        #. Translators: The title of the column containing the documentation of each of the scripts.
        message += _("Documentation")
        message += "</th><th>"
        #. Translators: The title of the column containing the command of each of the scripts.
        message += _("Gesture")
        message += "</th></tr>\n" script = addonDic[addon])
        for gesture in sorted(script):
            message += u"<tr><td>{doc}</td><td>{gesture}</td></tr>\n".format (doc = script[gesture], gesture=gesture)

    with open(_NRIniFile, "w", encoding = "utf-8") as file:

        file.write(message)

    # Opens the help of our addon on default browser.
    webbrowser.open(item.getDocFilePath())

I didn't check rigorously the identation...

And I didn't check the result, but theorically, it should result...

Re: Does the colour or font size of text in an image matter when performingOCR

Vaibhav Saraf
 

Hi,

Well this is something I have observed personally.

Often on images when I perform OCR, it would ignore some text which it would catch when I zoom into the picture and then perform OCR.

And if I am not wrong color contrast too has a role to some extent, experts may have a better view.

Thanks,
Vaibhav

Great info! As you alluded to, this isn’t something I generally need to do on a frequent basis or to multiple file types at once, so approaching it via the properties of a specific file would be a lot cleaner than trying to navigate that monstrous list. I didn’t realize you could access that setting from file properties. Thank you very much, Brian. 

It still might be worth at least keeping in the back of our minds to come up with an accessible solution for navigating the file extensions list from Windows settings, in case people encounter use cases where that approach makes more sense. The navigation there is currently quite poor, as I outlined previously. This is no fault of NVDA nor any other screen reader, just a poorly thought out design in that area of the settings app. It could be easily mitigated if Microsoft added a search box at the top as is found in most other areas of settings, but such a relatively low traffic part of the OS isn’t likely to get that much attention from them, so perhaps a clever user could come up with some kind of NVDA plug-in to help bridge the gap. There are some other sections and windows with a similarly poor interface, where you are forced to tab between large lists of buttons, so the usefulness of such a plug-in could extend beyond that one screen. Thanks again.

How many extensions are you trying to assign applications to?

You can chose any given instance of a file with the extension you want to assign, open its Properties, General tab, and then look at the Opens with entry.  If you want a different program to open all files with that extension, then activate the Change button and go through the process of picking a different application.  After you've done so all files with that extension will open with that program until and unless you were to go through this process again, or install another program that handles this file and allow it to be set up as the default handler during the install.

Hi,

This topic gets raised pretty frequently here but seldom gets much traffic, unfortunately.  not sure if that’s down to a lack of general interest or because there simply aren’t many accessible options out there. Windows XP included a utility called windows movie maker which was reasonably accessible, but there seems to be no way to install that application in modern versions of windows.  The app I use for audio recording, Reaper, is fully accessible and offers some limited video editing capabilities. That’s what I use for now but I would welcome a more fully featured accessible video editor.

Re: how to switch speech language

Fawaz Abdul rahman
 

Hi,
If you are asking about ability to switch TTS with a hotkey, yes, you can do that in 2 ways:
first, the easiest would be using the Switch Synth adon which you can get it from the following link:
second, you can create profiles and assign shortcuts to these profiles from input gestures settings.
note that you need to set the profile to manual activation when you are creating them.
good luck.

How should I read the parameter information of each method in Visual Studio?

Rowen Cary
 

I use C# to program, and I want to know how to read the parameter information of each method. Visual Studio has a shortcut key, Ctrl+Shift+Space or CtrL +k, p which is useless for me. When I use the above shortcut When you press the key, NVDA will only read "Ready", but using the up and down arrows does not read the given parameter information. Is this a bug in NVDA? Microsoft has related tutorials. The following is a link. After you open it, you can press the letter H to find the relevant instructions about the parameter information, However, it is useless for me, and perhaps more accurately, it is useless for NVDA.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/ide/using-intellisense?view=vs-2019

I very much hope that NVDA can do this and look forward to your reply.
