Re: Windows tool or NVDA command to convert a image in to text

Rui Fontes
 

Hello!


NVDA+R have the inconvenient of only reading what is on the screen.


I am developing an add-on to recognize image files like FineReader does...


It is based on NAPS, wich is based on Tesseract OCR.

It is working for Windows 10 64-bit.

If you want to test, it is available at:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/7403kwrr0uicmt7/NAPS2tesseractOCR_1.0_Gen.nvda-addon?dl=1


Any comments and suggestions are welcome to rui.fontes@tiflotecnia.com

Re: Turning Off Braille Translation

Sorry, but "No Braille" it is to do not use any Braille display...

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.

Re: Invoking Windows Optical Character Recognition (OCR) with NVDA

Thank you Bryan for this information.  The NVDA key + r is what I thought, but I didn't wait long enough.  I also didn't arrow down to see the information, so, I thought I had the key stroke wrong.

Re: Windows tool or NVDA command to convert a image in to text

 

I very seldom have used NVDA to invoke Windows 10 OCR, particularly for a PDF file open in Adobe.  

I prefer to use a third party OCR option.  See:  Free & Good OCR Software for Image Scanned PDFs

Edit Plus Editor - Issue with NVDA 2021.2

Marten Post Uiterweer
 

Hi,

My favorite editor is EditPlus. Since Nvda 2021.1 this editor is no
longer working with NVDA.
I thought, that in 2021.1 of NVDA, it would crash.
In NVDA 2021.2 it will not read anything that is in the editor window.
I have downloaded the latest v5 64 bit version of EdiPlus and NVDA will
read text, but each time will read the full document when pressing down
arrow.

For me not as big problem, because I use Jaws most of the time, but I
would report this.

Regards,

Marten

Re: Turning Off Braille Translation

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.

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?

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.
