Re: must have NVDA add-ons

Hi,

In addition to those mentioned above, I would add the clock addon to my list..
Making the computer speak time automatically to you in a certain
interval (30 min in my case) helps keeping you on time.

But yeah its really user dependant.

To add to Christopher’s great suggestions, make sure the person on the other end hasn’t turned down their computer volume, thinking it won’t impact speech on your end. Speaking from experience here! 😊

There are a few things I'd do...

 

Could you go into NVDA's Tools menu, and under Remote, make sure that 'Mute Remote' is not checked in that submenu?

Assuming this is unchecked, could you try NVDA+S on the remote machine to make sure the 'speech mode' is turned on, on 'talk' rather than 'off'?

If all this doesn't solve the issue, the only thing I know you can do is, if possible, restart NVDA and the machine remotely and it should come back up again as expected. If you had a connection issue, then it would have meant that the remote server you're using and/or the computer being controlled was off, or NVDA on that machine was off, but this probably isn't the case here.

 

Hopefully this helps!

Re: NVDA launches itself after UAC is dismissed, even if it wasn't running before that

 

Hello,

Actually, I forgot to mention that I tried that. and it did not help. And besides that, that option in "Ease of access center" is connected to the "Start NVDA after I sign in" one in NVDA itself. So if you disable the former, you disable the latter as well and I don't want to do that.

Hello,

 

I believe that this stems from NVDA being launched via the Ease Of Access feature of Windows. When you uncheck NVDA there and still let it start on and after the logon screen this should no longer happen. You can get there by entering „control /name Microsoft.EaseOfAccessCenter“ into the Run dialog box or by going to the Control Panel of Windows (run „control“) and searching for „Ease Of Access“ in your language there. Then navigate to something like „Use your computer without a screen“ and then Tab until you reach the NVDA check box in this section.

Předmět: [nvda] NVDA launches itself after UAC is dismissed, even if it wasn't running before that

 

Hello all,

Before eventually filing a ticket, I want to share my problem here. Maybe someone else has also encountered this previously and a solution is already available.

These days I had to reinstall my computer and all of its programs due to an SSD failure. I usually use an installed alpha version of NVDA as my daily driver. This time however, I did not had an installer for the latest alpha snapshot and initially I installed v2021.2 and then upgraded to the latest alpha snapshot via its manually downloaded install package.

Today I've noticed a peculiar behavior of NVDA, which did not occur before the reinstall. And that is: if NVDA is not running and an UAC prompt appears on the screen, after the "Yes" or "No" button is activated, NVDA will launch itself. This should not happen, but it does. Does anyone know why is this happening and is there a solution to this problem?

My copy of NVDA is configured to run after I log on and on UAC and other secure screens.

The problem occurs even without any add-ons.

I even tried removing the "nvda.ini" file from both the "AppData\Roaming\NVDA" and "Program Files (x86)\NVDA\systemConfig" directories (the file is the same), but that did not help.

In "Program Files (x86)\NVDA\systemConfig\addons", there are no add-ons.

Test environment:

  • Operating system: Windows 10 Pro version 21H1 (build 19043.1237), 64-bit, in Bulgarian with all locale settings set to "Bulgarian".
  • NVDA version: alpha-23838,ea5effee.
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-9400F at 2.90GHz.
  • RAM Memory: 16.00GB.
  • Graphics: MSI GeForce GTX-1050TI Gaming X 4G, 4096MB dedicated memory, desktop resolution set to 1920x1080.
  • Sound Card: Realtek ALC892 at Intel Cannon Point PCH.

Thanks in advance!

Well today I loaded nvda and went to check for updates on addons.

I do this every so often.

I have yesterday's updates and yesterday it all worked.

On both addon updator and nvda update check I got messages and an

error ding about not being able to check.

The log listed a load of errors and exceptions.

I then dialed up the right pages on the main sites for nvda and the

nvda addons site but didn't download anything.

I figgure if this is happening in both instances there is probably

some sort of outage as it all worked yesterday even with  latest

updates and its effecting all nvda update checking.

So is there a server outage or something broken on the server?

Re: Downloading from Vocalizer Tiflotecnia and Automatic Language change

Rui Fontes
 

Hello!


1 - Here is the text explaining how to procede...

To install the driver and the desired voices, perform the following steps:
• 1 - Open the NVDA menu, with NVDA+N;
• 2 - Down arrow until Tools submenu and press enter to open it;
• 3 - Find the item "Manage Add-ons" and press Enter;
• 4 - Click on the "Install" button and in the following dialog browse to locate the desired Add-on;
• 5 - After pressing the "Open" button, NVDA will present a warning dialog asking you to confirm you want to install. Answer Yes to continue;
• 6 - Execute these steps untill you have installed all desired Add-ons. To finish, Tab untill the "Close" button and press Enter. Re-start NVDA when prompted.

2 - But, pay atention that is the old version and that one only switch languages by indication of NVDA!


3 - The version available at https://vocalizer-nvda.com can also switch language based in the group of Unicode characters present...

So, even if the web page do not identify the language, if the text is writen with greek characters, Vocalizer will switch to greek if the voice is installed.


The download page is at:

https://vocalizer-nvda.com/downloads

unfortunately, now is only in portuguese...

The download ;page, near the top, describes how to install the synthesizer add-on and the voices.  They are all installed as add-ons according to the page.  Where you save them doesn’t matter, just as it doesn’t matter where you ssave and store any exe files or add-ons you want to run. 
 
While I expect you are on  the correct page, here is the link to avoid any possible confusion:

Hi Group,

I have two questions and I would appreciate your
comments.
1. As it is said that Vocalizer Tiflotecnia for NVDA has automatic
language change I tried to download voices that I need, but I am not
sure where to save them when it gives me the option to open or save.
1. eSpeak sometimes performs automatic language change but incorectly.
For instance when I have Turkish text it reads it as Spanish.
Also when I read Greek text on a website it reads the letters one at a
time, but not as words or sentences.
When I copy the text and paste it into a Word document it reads it as
it should.
