Re: Code Factory Voices no longer working?

I don't see how I personally could've deleted my licensing info. I
went to bed and they were working, woke up and they weren't. This is
definitely a horrible system, and antiquated. I don't understand why
it's still being used.

person’s may not.

I think this is a very bad system and, with good authorization systems, such
as JAWS uses, this ongoing contact with the server is unnecessary.

I would suggest contacting Code Factory before more troubleshooting on your
machine. If their server is working properly, you may have to do something.
If it is down, you may just have to wait until it is up again.

Hi,


I wonder if you could haveaccidentally deleted your info with the
license. I don't know what else could be going with your code factory
voices. They're working fine on my system.

Re: Looking for secure FTP client accessible with NVDA

 

Well I use flashfxp www.flashfxp.com.

Its by inicom but its not been updated in ages.

There are some querks and such to get about such as some folder views going away after os updates.

This can all be fixed by immediately making a backup after you have all settings and stuff set, and saving it to the cloud then restoring the settings part so as long as you have a non corrupted one it will work.

Re: nvda not announcing command description

Open the objject Presentation dialog, control NVDA key o.  the setting is in that dialog and is controled by a check box.
If you open the dialog in this way, you are on tooltips without moving.  It’s the first field in the dialog.  If you let all information read, you will hear the field announced.
 
It may be inconvenient to use NVDA key control o.  You can open the NVDA menu, down arrow to preferences, press enter, down arrow to object presentation and tab.  You are moving through the same part of the dialog and the first time you tabb you will be on tool tips. 
 
You may want to see how things change if you turn tooltips on, but doing so will change nothing as far as how ribbons are read, nor the information messages you hear as you move about what various controls do.

For that action you need to turn on tool tips in setting, object presentation. Then it will speak help for those items.

Hi,

I think their was a add-on that played sounds for when you got to a radio button, checkbox, or button. I think it was called Object Nav, will it be updated to work with the current NVDA version?

Welcome to the NVDA Community Add-ons website - Ignore Blanks Indentation Reporting #nvdaaddonsfeed

nvda@nvda.groups.io Integration <nvda@...>
 

Ignore Blanks Indentation Reporting

  • Author: Samuel Kacer
  • NVDA compatibility: 2021.1 and beyond
  • Download stable version

This is an NVDA addon that alters the reporting of indentation by disregarding blank lines when deciding whether to report changes in indentation. It is best understood by contrasting with normal behaviour with an example.

Consider this example:

def foo():
    x = 42

    return x

def bar():

The current behaviour of NVDA is to report indentation changes for any line where the indentation has changed, even if the line is blank. So, the example would be read like:

def foo():
tab x = 42
no indent blank
tab return x
no indent blank
def bar():

The disadvantage for this behaviour is that for most programming languages, like python, a blank line has no semantic significance and is just used to visually separate lines of code with no change to the code's meaning. Therefore, by reporting the change of indentation upon entering a blank line and then reporting it again after landing on the next line is just noise that makes it harder to focus on understanding the code.

This addon aims to improve on the behaviour by ignoring blank lines when computing indentation speech, thus the example is read like this instead:

def foo():
tab x = 42
blank
return x

no indent def bar():

Re: Addon for MP3 Direct Cut

In the main window, tabbing does nothing. 
 
I haven’t used the add-on.  For now, you should be able to use a version that works with the add-on as a portable version.

Re: nvda not announcing command description

That isn’t what appears to be wanted.  The descriptions you are talking about appear to be things like reply to the sender of a message when you are on the reply control in a ribbon.  These are not the same messages as in a combo box, for example when JAWS tutor help is on, up and down arrow to select item. 
 
JAWS also announces tutor help when you use control tab even when tutor help is off.

Re: nvda not announcing command description

Jujube
 

I'm not 100% sure but you can press NVDA + 2 to toggle the announcing
of command keys, for example if you have this setting enabled if you
press tab NVDA will announce tab and then whatever control is focused.
You can enable the reporting of tooltips in the NVDA settings under
review cursor I believe which may solve your other problem but I could
be wrong.
