I know there was somethingn on google news today about https certificates etc that expired. Could this have happened with nvda's site, or anywhere else that could have an effect on what's going on?

Hi,

The author of Add-on Updater himself (I) have experienced this once, and the workaround seems to be to visit addons.nvda-project.org website using your preferred web browser. If NV Access server was offline, chances are that folks would have reported problems with not only Add-on Updater, but NVDA update checks as well, affecting folks who do ask NVDA to check for updates every day. Since it doesn't affect everyone, chances are that the computer (more specifically, the operating system) might be assuming that the web trusts soon to expire security certificate without realizing that it isn't - connecting to websites flagged as secure (such as NV Access website) would inform Windows that the web is safer again.

Re: addon updater

 

Who knows, however who knows, Its more likely a lot of certs got updated at once, I just got updates to chrome, edge, windows, and a bunch of other things all of a sudden.

So could simply be that a lot of stuff suddenly needed renewing but whho knows we may never know.

Hmph, well it wasn't just the update addon but nvda update checker itself.

 

Update check and the addon update seem to work again but it did this yesterday so we will see tomorrow.

It could simply be that certs were updated but its that propergation deal with the dns that would make sence maybe.

But who knows.

Its almost like it stops then works again who knows.

Re: vocalizer nvda addon from Tiflotecnia: is it still updated and is it worth purchasing for multi lingual user?

Daniel McGee
 

Hi rui when you say
 

We plan to update them to version 2, but not yet a scheduled date...

May I ask, will version 2 Compact,  be the same sounding as you here from ios currently?

Kind regards

Hi,

I found the vocalizer for nvda from Tiflotecnia company, from this website

https://vocalizer-nvda.com/store

 

but from this page, seems like no price is mentioned for this product. Also, the copyright written at the bottom of the page is 2013, now its 2021.


The price is 90 EUR.



 

So, if I continue buying this thing, will it work with my nvda 2021? Or this is it's old website and this product is migrading to new website and I am missing something here?


The Vocalizer Expressive is already compatible with NVDA 2021.2 and will keep compatibility with new versions...



 

I know the code factory  version, but unfortunately for that version, it's auto language switching is not good. It doesn’t have the switch language base on the Unicode character feature. Meaning for the auto language to work, the document or webpage must be set up with correct language tag. So if for example in notepad, auto language switching will not happen even if I am reading text in another language.

 

Plus, the code factory version does not have the compact or low quality voices, I prefer that voices rather than the high quality/premium voices, just like on the phones.

 

So this vocalizer from Tiflotecnia has that things that I want. So wwanting to know whether it will work or not on latest nvda.

Yes, it works with actual version and will keep working with all new versions of NVDA.



 

Is the voices updated too?

No, not yet.

We plan to update them to version 2, but not yet a scheduled date...

Tiflotecnia, Lda.

Re: Question regarding numpad nav add-on

 

Well the update mysteriously fixed itself but who knows how long that will stay.

I did install the latest windows cu but things were still broken after that, so who knows if it will not break again tomorrow.

Something could be doing something remotely, I will respond tomorrow if its broken yet again.

Ordering from BookDepository?

JM Casey
 

Hey folks.

Has anyone successfully placed an order with Book Depository? I was pretty happy with the way things were going, until the very last moment. Everything seems to be fine from an accessibility standpoint, except for the combo boxes where you’re supposed to select your credit card expiry date. It’s like there’s no text in the boxes at all when they expand. I’m not sure if there’s a changing image or what, but NVDA (latest) acts as if they are empty no matter how I arrow around in them. I’ve tried this with both latest Chrome and Firefox. I’ve also tried an older version of JAWS (2018) and, needless to say really, that didn’t work either/had the same result.

I’ve already contacted them about this problem, but I wanted to send these books off as a gift to a friend in the next few days, so any further information I can give them at this point might be helpful. Anyone know what is up with these particular combo boxes?

Subject: Re: [nvda] addon updater

 

Hi,

The author of Add-on Updater himself (I) have experienced this once, and the workaround seems to be to visit addons.nvda-project.org website using your preferred web browser. If NV Access server was offline, chances are that folks would have reported problems with not only Add-on Updater, but NVDA update checks as well, affecting folks who do ask NVDA to check for updates every day. Since it doesn't affect everyone, chances are that the computer (more specifically, the operating system) might be assuming that the web trusts soon to expire security certificate without realizing that it isn't - connecting to websites flagged as secure (such as NV Access website) would inform Windows that the web is safer again.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: addon updater

 

Its semi inconsistant, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

If its a cert is nvda itself needing an update with the right certs or something.

It can't effect a load of us and not others randomly.

Its on several systems I have and 2 networks, I even ran a copy without anything and its all its effecting.

Hi from me,


Just to let you know that I'm unable to access the NV access site, nor am I able to do the add-on and/or NVDA updates.


Cheers,
