Seriously? Ali, that’s strange. I believe you about the system tray.  Is Microsoft seriously trying to be like Apple? Not sure about apple, I know people who use it. I’ll ask if it has a system tray like Windows.

Hello all,

 

I have read that with Windows 11 it is no longer possible to display all

icons in the system tray. I guess the icons are only shown grouped and

only expanded as soon as you move the mouse over them.

 

Are the grouped icons still usable with NVDA?

 

Thanks in advance for your answer.

 

Many greetings

The first thing I would want to know is where you read this. I have no opinion about whether it is correct, but I’m very careful about what sources I trust information from in cases like this.

Re: Does NVDA speak Arabic?

Shawn
 

I don’t speak Arabic, I’ve learned a handful of words from watching vids, but if I want to look at Arabic text, i.e. videos on Youtube or song titles, I prefer Persian. Espeak’s Arabic sounds awful and incomprehensible. Some of ESpeak’s languages aren’t too bad, but IMHO it’s Arabic is atrocious, and Hawaiian was a big distorted disappointment.

E-Speak supports Arabic, but I’m not sure to what extent.  Wikipedia says, “Currently, only fully diacritized Arabic is supported.” 

Since I don’t know how Arabic is written, I don’t know what sort of limitation that imposes. 

 

A lot of people don’t like E-Speak but it is something you may want to try.

Re: Does NVDA speak Arabic?

 

Ann,

        Not being a speaker of Arabic, I have no idea how much dialectal differences may matter, but two of the Microsoft One Core voices, Egyptian Arabic and Saudi Arabian Arabic, that are free under Windows 10 do have text-to-speech capability.  The other Arabic dialects do not.

Re: remote

Chris Mullins
 

Hi

Thanks for sharing this information with the NVDA community.  NVDA Remote is an excellent resource but since V2.4, I have had connectivity issues with it using nvdaremote.com but I didn’t know about these alternative servers.  Regarding the narrative about latency and distance between the connected computers on the nvra.io site, nvdaremote.com could still be the shortest route for some users but it’s location is not specified.  Could this be added to the site?

 

Cheers

Chris

Re: remote

Christopher Duffley
 

Hey Robert,

It's actually not that hard to do, if you have the technical knowhow and can forward a port on your router or Windows Firewall.

The server implementation I recommend and which works extremely well for me, both Windows and Linux, is:
https://github.com/jdmaweb/NVDARemoteServer

There's a readme file on the page, at heading level 1, that has a "Building" heading so that you can see how to build it. If you have good enough experience with the command line, this should not be a problem for you.

If you'd like to point your IP to a domain, your best option for the free route is to use something like no-ip.org or duckdns.org which will let you point an IP address to a subdomain of your choosing.

Brian, regarding your message about remote servers, all of you can please go ahead and add unlimitedhoperadio.com to your known hosts. This is one that I put up not only so I can control my own machines while I'm away from them or just to have them on there as controlled machines, but for this very reason, in the event that anyone needs an extra host out of Newark, New Jersey in the United States to go to if necessary.

Re: remote

Hi,

 

I don’t use NVDA Remote at all to remote into any machine, I use RDP, Remote Desktop Protocol, then run Narrator on the host machine.

 

That seems accessible, if the host is configured correctly.

 

Heck, I can even run NVDA via RDP.

 

All the best

Re: How do I Stop NVDA from saying Blank when I arrow down in a document or email

Gene
 

As I recall, someone mentioned an add-on today that skipps blank llines when using read to end in browse mode.  So using that should eliminate some of the problem.  You may be able to skip blank lines with the add-on while having the convenience of using read to end.  I don’t use it and others can discuss it, but as I recall, there is a skim feature that allows you to skip to the next line or skip a block of links by using down arrow while in read to end to skip to the next line and n to skip blocks of links while resuming reading in read to end.  You can move as you would when not in read to end and have reading continue without having to issue read to end again.

Just to explain why read to end is not, as is often suggested,  really a resolution for this issue.

If I am reading and email with say multiple links of 200 characters or more, or obscure graphic descripters, or perhaps obscure table layouts if you need some table verbosity, the last thing you want your screenreader to do is to tediously babble through all these  verbose elements of an email in a read to end sequence.

You need  in these circumstances to quickly skip through all this by simply pressing the down arrow to read through an email efficiently and skip all the verbose link / elelment description whilst being aware it is there if you need to go back and review.

It should be able to be done but is there a reason you don’t use read to end in e-mails?  Read to end doesn’t announce blank lines and starts reading the text skipping all blank lines if there are any.

 

Also, what program are you using for e-mail and are you reading mail in plain text or HTML?

Thank you for bringing this up! It’s something that frequently irritates me but because it tends to happen during the midst of my work day, I forget to jot it down as a thing to explore here on the message board after work.

What would really be ideal is an option in NVDA settings that would cause the NVDA cursor to simply bypass blank lines. Sometimes when trying to read an email in outlook I have to press the down arrow well over a dozen times just to get to the first non-blank text. Control down arrow is supposed to take you to the next block but this doesn’t work, either. There’s no Practical reason why a user would want to sit there pounding the down arrow like a trained monkey just hearing the word ”blank” over and over and over LOL. it’s a mindless but seemingly unavoidable waste of time.

Hello,

rather forcing blank to be changed in pronunciation using a regular expression dictionary entry might be useful.

^ is the beginning of line in regular expressions.

$ is the end of line in regular expressions.

* in regular expressions means 0 or more of the previous character or pattern

So:

^ *$

should match a line with just spaces in it.  ( note there is a space between the ^ and the * , also note you might want to turn on all punctuation to read my descriptions above, I can't be sure on this computer how much of NVDA reads of the above special characters.

Re: Browse Mode single letter quick navigation shortcuts

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


What is happening is nvda not changing to browse mode? in a web page?


Is there some thing else grabbing the focus and you are stuck in focus mode?


Is it only in the one browser or all of the browsers or nvda is saying unknown down on the running applications area.


I guess the first thing I would try is running the Run COM Registration Fixing tool... under the tools section in nvda and follow the directions.


After that is done shut down the computer then start it up again and see if that fixes the problem.


There have been updates in the nvda 2021.2 release for this tool so make sure you have this version of nvda.


We wil see if it makes a difference.
