Re: Turning Off Braille Translation

dennis huckle <denniswhuckle@...>
 

Hello again,

I have just noticed a setting within nvda.

Go to settings,

Cursor down to braille,

Tab to change braille display.

Tab to no braille.

Then tab to apply then ok.

This will turn off translation but, I suspect braille display may show what is on screen and just red it as some form of braille.

Then go to the site you want to look at braille grade 3.

However I suspect if no braille is selected you will have to use another keyboard such as a qwerty usb or Bluetooth to control the pc.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.

Hey,

 

I’m using the orbit reader 20 plus. I’ve currently got the output table set to. UK English grade 2.

Thanks,

Harmony.

dennis huckle <denniswhuckle@...>
 

Ah,

No, set the orbit output table in nvda to us English eight dot braille.

As I mentioned this is grade 0 braille.

I don’t think there is a way of completely turning off translation in nvda so nvda will send what you are reading to the orbit thinking its grade 0.

This is just braille ascii code so you should get at least an attempt to read grade 3 braille as you want.

Please let me know how this goes as I am interested my self.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.

Re: log in scrreen and Braile

dennis huckle <denniswhuckle@...>
 

Hello,
Is the display connected via usb or Bluetooth?.
Sometimes Bluetooth doesn't "kick in" at log in screen for some braille displays for some reason.
Once you have set your braille display as you want have you gone to settings and gone to save configerations at log in?.
This does help sometimes.
I think it may also depend on the particular display.
Also make sure your version of nvda is up to date.
Hope this may help.
Kind regards,
Dennis huckle.

Subject: [nvda] log in scrreen and Braile

Hello.

I recently got hold of a Braille display (Mantis Q 40), and I noticed there is no Braiile in the log in screen which makes it very difficult to figure out where one is if one does not use speech.

Is there a setting I overlooked for Braille to make this happen?


Thanks,

Hi.

I tried everything prescribed here, and I am still having the issue. I even updated to 21H1 and still. I will uninstall it once more, reinstall it and report back.

There is no setting, to my knowledge.  The program simply has to be running in the background.  It constantly feeds "silence" to the sound card so that it can never go to sleep and, indirectly, neither can any Bluetooth audio device it's streaming to.

And by feeding silence I mean just that - it plays zero volume sound.  What allows the card to be put to sleep is when no sound is being sent to it by anything.

There is also an NVDA Add-On, BluetoothAudio, meant to address the same issue.

Re: delayed speech

Gene
 

I believe the page I gave a link to briefly discusses how to use the program.  As I recall, you have to set it to work with the specific sound card.  If it isn’t clear how to work with the program, ask here.  I haven’t used it.

Re: delayed speech

The sound card goes to sleep after a period of silence.  Use Silenzio to work around the problem. 
If you follow this link, you can read about it and download it.
 
When you are on the page, search from the top for Silenzio.

Re: Turning Off Braille Translation

Hello,

Go to the Braille tables and pick the english U.s. 8 dot computer Braille table. i have done this so I could read things that have already been translated to Grade 2.
You may find that the files are in brf format with dot 7 on most of the time. I had to write a program to remove it from some brf files that I wanted to read from BARD.
Let me know if you want further heolp.

Re: Turning Off Braille Translation

Hello,

Please tell me where you have set your output table set at present.

Also which braille display are you using.

If you want to come back to me off line at

dwhuckle@...

I’ll be happy to work with you on this.

I suspect, but aren’t sure at present, that if you set your output table to American eight dot computer braille, otherwise known as grade 0, this may help.

Please let me know.

I use a focus 14 braille display and have written my own list of braille commands that work with nvda but aren’t sure about commands for other displays.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.
