Re: Bluetooth Audio Addon

Mobeen Iqbal
 

Hi.

You may wish to try silenzio, this has solved the bluetooth issue for me. It's available at:

https://dl.canadialog.com/support/download/software/silenzio/Silenzio_2.1_setup.exe

The blog article describing the program is at:

https://www.canadialog.com/articles/3411/the-sound-of-your-screen-reader-is-poor-and-sluggish-see-how-to-fix-it#site-navigation

Very best wishes,

Mo.

This addon does not work on my PC. I used several different kinds of Bluetooth headsets, but NVDA is still cutting out and not speaking the first letter.

For now, I’m just playing random audio files with the volume very low, in order to keep NVDA from cutting out, but that is not a very ideal long term solution.

Re: issue with 2021-2 rc1

 

I also created a tutorial, with a MS-Word fillable form to go with it, so that those new to GitHub and filing trouble/bug reports could have a much easier time of it and have a structured approach to follow so that all the elements requested for those reports would end up having been done before the report was even begun.

Creating an Issue in GitHub for NVDA

Even though direct links to the following exist in the tutorial, I'll also place them here:

MS-Word Fillable Form for an NVDA Bug Report Including Pre and Post Filling-Out Instructions

MS-Word Fillable Form for an NVDA Bug Report Including Only Post Filling-Out Instructions

How to Unprotect a Completed Fillable Word Form so the Entire Document Can Be Copied

Hi Don,

Was this a problem in 2021.1?

Could you file a bug report here?

Re: how to read amazon kindle books with nvda

 

Normally, if a book doesn't support screen readers, the built-in TTS starts reading automatically.
Thus, before buying a book, it's a good idea to download the sample first, so that you can see whether the book is compatible with NVDA.


Re: Firefox download new version dialog

David Mellor
 

Thanks Gene,
I didn't play with it for long enough to be sure.
I ended up just turning on the auto update.
That caused the update to complete very quickly with the usual What's new in firefox page loading.
This didn't happen with my previous attempt at activating the download button.
Perhaps I'll give it a try another time.
Best wishes,
David

You just think they don’t work because nothing appears to change. I don’t know what a sighted person may see, but if you want to see progress, after you issue the download command, go into the about dialog, alt h followed by a.  Then check to see if browse mode is on.  Use NVDA key space.  If it isn’t on, turn it on.  You can now move around the about page as you would any web page.  You will find a line or two near the top of the page that tells you what is going on regarding the update. 
 
As I recall, if you keep causing the line to read, it will say, after a time, something about restarting Firefox to update and you will hear a command to do so and there will be a button you can activate as well.

Those keys don't interact with firefox unfortunately.
I could not see any way of getting to the controls.
The f6 does work, thank you Patrick.
Clicking on the download still didn't seem to do anything but I can play around with that a bit more.
Thanks,
David

Re: NVDA documentation

These two functions are very good. We have mapped the shortcut keys of these two functions as 3 and 9 by default in the Chinese environment.


Re: A Note of Appreciation on NVDA and Foreign Languages

Hello, Jujube and Jessica,

I am glad that you like Chinese Mandarin. I am Chinese. We can communicate together. I will try my best to help you. Regarding Mandarin, about Chinese culture, or using NVDA skills, there is no problem. Of course, the better thing is that I can also learn the language of your country from you or you. Anyone can email me my E-mail is manchen_0528@...

Thanks


Re: seeing entire file names in a torrent contents list in uTorrent

John Isige
 

I never tried exactly what you're asking. But if you enable the web
interface and google the port it uses, I forget what the default is,
that might give you more access. It's a bit weird too, lots of clickable
stuff, but you do get access to some things you can't normally get at.
Probably easier just to grab the whole thing and delete what you don't
want though.


Oh you'll also want to set it to manual download probably, so you can
queue it up and then go into the web interface to see if you can pick
individual files. Actually, now that I think about it, I might be
thinking of QBitTorrent, though UTorrent might have a web interface too.
I've yet to find a torrent client that's actually fully accessible with
NVDA though, so good luck. I think UTorrent's list view worked ages and
ages ago, but it hasn't really been functional with NVDA for quite a
while now.

Speech being interrupted when I pan to the next line on braille display

Jujube
 

Hi everyone, This is a small annoyance I discovered literally just now but I notice that when I pan to the next line on my braille display, NVDA stops reading. I tried using say all but braille display panning interrupts say all. I wonder if there's a configurable setting for that? If not, I understand. Thanks for any help.


Re: A Note of Appreciation on NVDA and Foreign Languages

Jujube
 

Hi Jessica, I'll try my best to help but I unfortunately don't have all the answers.

My Mom taught me Mandarin braille years ago by googling resources online. I honestly don't know what she used since she was so young but doing a google search wouldn't hurt. I'm also not familiar with Mandarin or Japanese DAISY services as I never ever use them.

Hello, I'm Jessica Glasco.  I'm totally blind, and I love NVDA.  I have 2 braille displays.

You can feel free to contact me anytime. I was also wondering if there were Chinese Daisy online services I could add or turn on on my Victor Reader Stream new generation. It has wifi capabilities and online services. It's fun to learn.

Hi
I guess that under tools in the kindle program there is a text to speech related item, if it isn't available from there you should check the preferences sections under tools menu.
