NVDA 2021.3 Released

By Reef Turner

NV Access is pleased to announce that version 2021.3 of NVDA, the free screen reader for Microsoft Windows, is now available for download. We encourage all users to upgrade to this version.

Highlights

This release introduces support for the new HID Braille specification. This specification aims to standardize support for Braille Displays without needing individual drivers. There are updates to eSpeak-NG and LibLouis, including new Russian and Tshivenda tables. Error sounds can be enabled in stable builds of NVDA via a new advanced settings option. Say all in Word now scrolls the view to keep the current position visible. There are lots of improvements when using Office with UIA. One UIA fix is that Outlook now ignores more types of layout tables in messages.

Important Note: Due to an update to our security certificate, a small number of users get an error when NVDA 2021.2 checks for updates. NVDA now asks Windows to update security certificates, which will prevent this error in the future. Affected users will need to download this update manually.

Please note, after updating any software, it is a good idea to restart the computer. Restart by going to the Shutdown dialog, selecting “restart” and pressing ENTER. Updating software can change files which are in use. This can lead to instability and strange behaviour which is resolved by rebooting. This is the first thing to try if you do notice anything odd after updating.

While downloading NVDA, please consider becoming a monthly donor. Contributions like yours help NV Access continue our important work.

We also have a range of training material in the NV Access Shop to help you increase your skills with NVDA. Start with the popular Basic Training for NVDA in electronic text, audio and braille. Save with the NVDA Productivity Bundle. This includes Basic Training, all our Microsoft Office training, and telephone support.

Re: new addon: NVDA Advanced OCR.

This sounds fantastic and super useful. I just installed it and ran it on  a closed file in my down loads folder.  I get "recognizing" and then a couple of beeps, followed by "process completeed"  I then hear the first line of the file but if I press an arrow key, I am taken back to the contents of my downloads folder and not the ocr result.  Anyone else had a similar experience?


If this works well, this could be a game changer and super useful as I said.

Thanks.

Brian.

Hello,

I am part of a developer team of a new addon.


I'd like to inform you that yesterday  we published the first version of Nao, NVDA Advanced OCR.

I paste the little readme file and at last I put the link for download.

Feedback and suggestions are welcome!


Nao is an addon that improves the standard OCR capabilities that NVDA provides on modern Windows versions. While NVDA standard command uses Windows OCR to recognize the screen, NAO is able to make the OCR on files saved on your hard drive or USB devices. Use NVDA-Shift-R to recognize any sorts of images and pdf! Simply put the focus / cursor on the file you desire, don't open it, but hit NVDA-Shift-r. The document will be recognized and a simple text editfield will appear, allowing you to read the entire content. Nao is able to handle also multipage pdf, so if you have a not accessible document, don't worry, Windows OCR will be able to make yhr entire work.


System Requirements
The addon works on Windows 10 and Windows 11 systems, since they have OCR capabilities builtin. Nao is compatible from NVDA version 2021.2, so don't use older versions of the screen reader. Note that Nao works with Windows Explorer, on desktop, or with Total Commander filemanager; don't use other software like 7zip or Winrar , since they are not supported.

Features and commands
• NVDA + Shift + R: recognize any sorts of images and pdf from file system;
◦ PgUp / PgDown: move the cursor between real pages of a multipages document.
◦ NVDA + Shift + P: report page number related to the cursor position, in a multipage document.
• NVDA + Shift + Ctrl + R: take a full screen shot and recognize it.

Hi, Simone,

This is n excellent piece of work! I have just tried the add-on with a bank statement in bitmap form file in my Downloads folder. It works like a dream!
Yesterday, I tried to read the same file by using NVDA + r to OCR the Adobe screen displaying the statement. This gave me only a partial read of the contents. I am sure this was limited by the way Adobe was displaying the image.

Just now, I pointed to the closed file in my downloads folder and press NVDA+shift+r and, almost instantly, a crisp, clear version of the statement page appeared without all the material that complicated the Adobe-based image.

Many thanks to you and to the developer team and for sharing this great tool!


All the best,

Cearbhall

Yes, with the difference that you don't open the file in your adobe reader or similar. And you have the multipage recognization on fly.

Also, if this feature no longer exists in the newest version of JAWS, you can install an earlier version. and keep the newer version.  You can have multiple copies of JAWS on the same machine.  You can use the older copy only for Zoom meetings, if you wish. 
 
Of course, you may want to see if NVDA does what you want before installing an earlier JAWS version.

JAWS may have let you use this command as though it were a universal command but that may have been a JAWS feature.  I joined a test meeting and when I talked, if I was in the window using NVDA, the command control 2 worked.  When I talked and I wasn’t in the window, it didn’t.

Thank you.  Unfortunately control + shift + t is not a global command.  That is, you can’t use it from the minutes file.  You must alt + tab to Zoom, control + shift + t, then alt + t back to your minutes file.

Hi

You can use

Control + Shift + T for JAWS to announce name of active speaker. with JAWS 2021.

 

As for copying chat in NVDA,  you can use "speech history,  review and opying" add-on.

 

Hope this helps. Thanks.

Is it possible to copy and paste a chat message in a Zoom meeting using NVDA? I serve as a scribe for several groups, and I am going to convert to NVDA due to JAWS no longer supporting the “who is talking” global command “control + 2”. JAWS stopped supporting this command about three weeks ago. The “who is talking” command is useful for scribes only if it is global so that the scribe can stay in their notes and not switch to the Zoom meeting to activate a local “who is talking” command.  I have complained to Vispero about this.

Are you using the Zoom enhancer add-on? I find it very useful too.

You can use NVDA + Ctrl + h To open a dialog where you can read all the chats.  Thanks.

Re: NVDA and deleting favorites

 

And, to drive home one of my frequent points, you could cut off the "NVDA" part of this question and the answer is precisely the same.

This is not an NVDA function, nor any screen reader's function, but how Edge works with the keyboard whether or not any screen reader is in use.

This is not offered as a criticism or an attack, but to encourage people to think about what controls what they're asking about.  When it comes right down to it, it's usually not the screen reader unless we're talking screen reader settings or commands.

Re: NVDA and deleting favorites

Be on the favorite you want to delete, open the context menu and find delete.  You will probably hear a shortcut letter when you are on delete so in future you can open the context menu and type the letter.
 
When trying to figure out how to do things in situations like this, the context menu should be one of the first things tried.

The last change to Application Dictionary add-on was made in November 2020, which explains part of the reason for the message you got earlier when trying to install this add-on; of course the other reason is maintenance of this add-on.

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: Accessing Zoom Chat With NVDA

Hi

You can use

 Control + Shift + T for JAWS to announce name of active speaker. with JAWS 2021.


As for copying chat in NVDA,  you can use "speech history,  review and opying" add-on.


Hope this helps. Thanks.

Hello,

 

Is it possible to copy and paste a chat message in a Zoom meeting using NVDA? I serve as a scribe for several groups, and I am going to convert to NVDA due to JAWS no longer supporting the “who is talking” global command “control + 2”. JAWS stopped supporting this command about three weeks ago. The “who is talking” command is useful for scribes only if it is global so that the scribe can stay in their notes and not switch to the Zoom meeting to activate a local “who is talking” command.  I have complained to Vispero about this.

Thanks Brian for your input and this addon for the other member suggested.
I will take a look.

I really thought of using a script to accomplish  but your concept is rather similar.

Regards,

Also something changed with this.  Mr. Leonarczyk is still listed as the first author but the second is Łukasz Golonka.
