NVDA speech audio destination. windows 10

Mário Navarro
 

Hi All.

Is it possible to choose the audio NVDA synthesizer speech destination when we are using a Bluetooth Speaker?

example

When I'm listening music on a Bluetooth device speaker, I'd like to listen to NVDA synthesizer speech audio in my ultrabook speaker, not Bluetooth Speaker.
This way I can continue to work on my ultrabook and listen music on the bluetooth  device Speaker
This is possible, or there is some addon for this function .
I've tried several ways but without success.
thank you.
cheers.

Emoji saying 12 in outlook not saying the name

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi guys


Has any one had the following problem using outlook? when after inserting a emoji when you go to read back what you have typed in the email it says 12 instead of the name of the emoji.


They are using windows 10 not sure which version yet and to make sure I am going to get her to update nvda she might already have I will find out shortly.


The below is what she said and I have no answer about saying emoji before it.


But, weirdly, when I select them and read back over that spot it just says 12 where each one is.  Then if I send the e-mail and someone replies I can read them if I scroll down to my original e-mail.  Emojis from other people are reading fine.

Is this a setting I need to change in NVDA or is it something to do with my rather outdated 2013 version of outlook.  And can I set NVDA to say emoji when it reads one so I know it isn’t part of the text if it is a bit random.
_._,_._,_



So it seems she can read emojis in a email but not after it has been inserted into her email that she types up.


Any ideas?

NVDA Responsiveness in Versions of Microsoft Office

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,

I currently have Word for Microsoft 365 installed on my Windows 10
powered laptop. Since several NVDA versions, I have generally not been
satisfied with NVDA’s responsiveness in this version of Word, whether
it be in navigation through large documents on editing text in small
ones. Turning on experimental UIA support improves responsiveness but
introduces various other bugs. As such, I am considering switching to
another version of Microsoft Office. Which one would you say, say 2013
or 2019, is NVDA snappiest in?

I would appreciate any assistance and thoughts in this regard.

Best Regards,

Hi Brian,

I use Time Warner Mail now known officially as Spectrum mail service. I was getting this issue of group messages marked as spam on several e-mail addresses. I used to go to the online interface and mark them as not spam and send them to the inbox. This did not solve the problem. Every time the mail hit the server, it was filtered into the spam folder. I called tech support and they told me to put those trouble addresses into my online address book. I did this and for a few days, nothing changed, then after about 4 or 5 days, the messages started showing up as normal mail in my inbox on my Thunderbird mail program.  So if anyone has this issue, give this method a try as well.

When this occurs, there are things you can do to help avoid this happening to others in the future, the most important of which is going to your spam folder and unmarking the message that got sent there that originated from groups.io.  This starts a feedback loop with the email service provider and their spam filtering and even a few of these unmarkings tends to get the filter that classified groups.io messages as spam removed.

It's also helpful, when possible, to write support at your email service provider and telling them that since groups.io is a subscription only service, nothing that comes from it can be considered spam.  If you haven't subscribed to a group, you will not get messages from it, plain and simple.

If you happen to have accidentally marked a groups.io message as spam yourself, then please do take the time to go to your spam folder and unmark it.  The feedback loop to email service providers works both ways, and just a few "mark as spam" actions can trigger the creation of a filter by the email service provider, and that can affect a large number of people.  Unmarking messages accidentally marked as spam can prevent this from happening.

Hi, Why not uninstall the 32 bit. Then install the 64 bit. Try that. Keep the 32 bit should the 64 bit cause you problems.

Version 21.10 of Joseph Lee's add-ons are on their way #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

I think you can consider this one of my parting gifts:

Version 21.10 of my add-ons (except Add-on Updater) are on their way. These include Control Usage Assistant, Enhanced Touch Gestures, Event Tracker, GoldWave, Resource Monitor, StationPlaylist, and Windows App Essentials. These updates will be made available via Add-on Updater in coming days (the thread will be updated then).

 

BEFORE YOU INSTALL:

  1. You must be running NVDA 2021.2 or later; Resource Monitor requires NVDA 2021.1 or later, but for consistency, please use it with 2021.2 or later. To prepare you for this change, starting today, Add-on Updater will not offer updates for these add-ons for older NVDA releases. This change is necessary because NVDA 2021.2 introduced a big change that will affect many add-ons next year, and I decided to apply this change early (this decision also aligns with my exit plan outlined below).
  2. If you are planning to use Windows 11, you MUST be running both NVDA 2021.2 AND Windows App Essentials 21.10 and later releases.
  3. As of version 21.10, Event Tracker is end of life from me. I have asked add-ons community to maintain this add-on further.
  4. Version 21.10 will be third to last update for StationPlaylist add-on from me (originally it was second to last but I decided to release a version in November to support StationPlaylist suite 6).
  5. For other add-ons except Windows App Essentials, version 21.10 will be the second to last release from me. The final releases will be made in January 2022, and to prepare for end of life, I’m not accepting suggestions for Control Usage Assistant, Enhanced Touch Gestures, GoldWave, Resource Monitor, and StationPlaylist.

 

I’m letting go of most add-ons so I can focus on other things in life. Those who have experienced graduate school education (masters and doctorate/PH.D.) can understand what I’m talking about – the first few weeks are easy, but as time goes on, school takes priority. I’m entering a phase in life where I need to balance between school and other duties, therefore I’m letting go of add-on development which was a big part of my life for the last few years. Besides, we now have people in NVDA community who are more than capable of maintaining add-ons like the ones I have maintained, and I’m confident that folks will make these add-ons better in the long term. I am counting on you, the entire NVDA community around the world, to show users respect by maintaining these add-ons in the future.

 

Key highlights of version 21.10:

  • As I mentioned, all add-ons from me will now require newer NVDA releases.
  • Localization updates for all add-ons.
  • Control Usage Assistant, Event Tracker, Enhanced Touch Gestures, GoldWave, StationPlaylist, Windows App Essentials: takes advantage of control types refactor introduced in NVDA 2021.2.
  • GoldWave: in GoldWave 6.57, NVDA will no longer announce track names when you press play/rewind/stop keys.
  • Windows App Essentials: improved (and now official) support for Windows 11 apps.

 

Thank you.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Need help performing clean uninstall of NVDA

Gene
 

Do any NVDA add-ons make changes to the registry?  Before pursuing such actions as changing the registry, contacting the developer of the add-on might be a good step.  And if it does, you might then find out exactly what to change, thus eliminating the need for removing everything related to NVDA, then reinstalling everything and reestablishing all settings.

Hi all.

Yes, it is enough for clean all NVDA data, but delete keys from the registry don’t is very necessary. In the registry, NVDA save the folder of configuration (roaming or APPdata\locale) and the option of secure mode in secure screens like the user account control. So, if you uninstall NVDA, restart your system and delete the folder of configuration, you can install again NVDA and after your addons without problems.

Hi to all

Please, how to perform a clean uninstall of NVDA.

I and some other people have problem with lbl add-on, an add-on to use

along with Reaper. The author said that the only way he or she know is

to reinstall Windows, then install NVDA, then the add-on should work.

I'm not sure that error come from NVDA or not, but if remove via program

and feature, delete NVDA folder from roamming, and even find and delete

keys from registry. Is it enough to clean all NVDA data from a computer?

Any help would be appreciated.

Greetings,

Thank you for the recommendations!
I should have thought of that...  :-(

I have never used Narator and that audio output should also come through.

I've also never used NVDA remote and have no idea what the pros/cons would be.
Is it capable of upgrading itself in that scenario?

These are great recommendations, thank you~!

For example, I was using a local Windows 10 computer to RDP to a remote Windows 8 computer and I can hardly hear NVDA output from the remote computer, however, the local computer NVDA output is easy to hear.

I am not using NVDA remote, I'm running NVDA on both computers and using the audio from RDP.

The volume on the remote computer is set to 100%.

The sound mixer on the local computer does not include a selector for RDP.
All the selectors are at the same level.

If I go to the remote computer and disconnect from RDP the NVDA audio follows the volume control on that computer.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.


When I use MS RDP to access a remote computer and try to update NVDA on the remote computer the update fails with a file in use error.

The error reports something like the file is in use by another user and allows you to retry, however, the only way I know to resolve this problem is to go to the remote computer  and access it directly and complete the update.
A screen shot of the error dialog box is attached for reference.

Many years ago this did not happen.

It has never been resolved since.

Russell, one thing you could try in terms of updating NVDA is to temporarily use narrator?


And, in terms of the volume levels, I also find remote NvDA dropping volume on/off at times via remote desktop, but, haven't figured out the cause as of yet.


Stay well
