Re: help to download python

 

All available Python releases for Windows can always be had from the source:  https://www.python.org/downloads/windows/ 

The only 3.7 release listed is: Python 3.7.12 - Sept. 4, 2021

Look on that page and pick the tarball format of your choosing.

Automatic speech output for interactive fiction interpreters not doing automatic speech

Felix G.
 

Hello everyone,
maybe someone can point me in the right direction. I'm using the
automatic speech output for interactive fiction interpreters add-on,
and for some reason it does not speak automatically in the Magnetic
Scrolls interpreter. I've turned off pictures as the instructions
suggest. I can read the text just fine using the review cursor, only
the automatic speech functionality does not work.
Any help is appreciated.
All the best,
Felix

Hello Ali,

Try changing the HID to ORbit HID. I have one, and panning buttons work here.

Thanks.

Hi Milton,

 

No, there is no replacement for dictationBridge. However, there is an alternative solution that works differently but that may help you.

Merry Christmas, NVDA Input Gestures Demo

Nimer Jaber
 

Hello everyone,

First, Merry Christmas to all who celebrate. This year has been a challenging one for me, quite challenging, actually. I know this is true for many of you. Thank you so much for the support you have shown me, and each other, in this forum. Please try to stay safe, remember that we are in a pandemic, but try to be merry as well. For some, the holidays can be a tough time. You are not alone, and things will look brighter, even if it doesn't feel like it now. If you wish to reach out and need someone to talk to, please reach out to me at nimerjaber1@....

Next, BlindTechAdventures is a YouTube channel, and is the home of Nimer and Kirt, and anyone else who wishes to come on. We discuss tech, and any other topic we feel like discussing. This was called Nimer's Tech and Outdoor Adventures channel, but has been renamed.

In any case, the latest video is out. It is a Christmas message, as well as a quick guide on the NVDA Input Gestures settings. Using the Input Gestures settings, I've demonstrated how to assign keyboard commands for a flattened mode of next and previous object navigation, which is the equivalent of the JAWS touch cursor, and is similar to Narrator navigation, and can help you access programs which may have accessibility challenges. I've also assigned a keyboard command to turn on and off the screen curtain. Using the steps I provide, you can change or add gestures or keyboard commands for NVDA functionality.

If you like the content, please consider liking, sharing with your network, and subscribing, in order to receive additional content. If you have comments or suggestions, please send those to nimerjaber1@... or via comment on the YouTube video. If you'd like to come on to discuss tech, or you want to help with the visuals of the channel, etc., please get in touch as well.

To watch the video, please visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmeGih7_O74

To subscribe to the channel, please visit https://www.youtube.com/blindtechadventures

If you celebrate, Merry Christmas.

Thank you all for this incredible add-on I read a PDF image with this add-on! I am so grateful to the NVDA community! This is a great Christmas present! I use NVDA as my only screen screen reader! Thank you so much!

Hello all and many Christmas!
We are proud to tell you that a new version of Nao is available.
This is the last version for 2021.
We have added new features and solved some bugs, here is the list:
• OCR of pdf and images are presented in a new text window, with some
hotkeys for simple operations; in this manner we automatically solved
the incompatibility with third party addons; shortcuts are:
◦ PgUp / PgDown: move the cursor between real pages of a multipages
document.
◦ P: report page number related to the cursor position, in a multipage
document.
◦ l: report line number related to the cursor position, in a multipage
document.
◦ c: copy all text to the clipboard.
◦ s: Save a copy of the document in text format.
◦ f: find text and read some words before and after the string.
• Support for the Xplorer filemanager.
• Nao shortcuts are customizable from the Input Gestures Dialog of NVDA.
Open NVDA menu, go to preferences, and from that submenu select input
gestures dialog. Remember that this feature is not global, but it works
only where Nao can make an ocr. So gestures will appear only if you are
in the desktop, or in file explorer, Total Commander or Xplorer.
• Nao works only where possible, so if you are in a not supported
window, the hotkey will be ignored by the addon; this solved an
important issue where Excel and Word users couldn't press the
NVDA-Shift-r keystroke, since it was incorrectly intercepted by Nao.
• A long Ocr process can be aborted simply pressing the "Cancel" button
on the progress bar window. this window also gives you information about
the state of the OCR, updating informations every 5 seconds. You can
configure how to receive progress bar information with the standard
NVDA-u command.
• Added Turkish, Russian, Spanish, Chinese and french translations.
• Users can make donations to the project.
• Fixed a bug with some characters on the file name that prevents the
Ocr to work properly.

Download it from:
www.nvda-nao.org/download

Please, if you find critical bugs, write an email to:
support@...

We hope this addon will improve your productivity.

See you in 2022!

Simone,

I'm not sure if you're sending these messages by e-mail, or using the web interface to post, but if it's the latter I'd like to ask you to go to any line where you have pasted in a web address or email address, go to the end, and hit space.  That will force Groups.io to convert plain text for either of these to click through links.

Here's wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a 2022 full of all the best!

It is strictly available from the developer, who has provided the source link to get it repeatedly.  It is brand, spankin' new and not a part of the NVDA Add-Ons Marketplace, yet.
 
I should also have added to my last message that exact, and I do mean exact, error text that you get for the failures is pretty much necessary as well.  But don't bother retesting until you have uninstalled your current NVDA completely, and reinstalled.

If you uninstall NVDA 2021.2, then install NVDA 2021.3.1, and are still having the issue, then please report back.  And before reporting back, restart NVDA with debug logging level on so that information is captured about what's going on.

It is impossible to guide you any further than I, and Gene, already have.  I know of no one who's having update problems with NVDA 2021.3 or 2021.3.1, freshly installed after NVDA 2021.2 has been previously removed.

Re: NVDA 2021.3 RC2 now available

This may help you update add-ons but I’m not sure how you might get NVDA to update itself.  Also, this solution might not be necessary any longer.  It may be better and more simple to uninstall the add-on updater you are using and install the newest version which probably has corrected the problem discussed here. 
 
I gave the address of the topic and here is the page to get the latest add-on updater.  That’s what I wsould try first.

That fix is already part of NVDA 2021.3.  The issue was strictly with 2021.2 and only for certain users, because the issue arose from a Windows-based certificate issue, which is now worked around.

As has been noted, if the add-ons you already have were compatible with 2021.2, there have been no updates to add-ons that I know of that are specific to any of the dot releases in the 2021 progression other than, perhaps, 2021.1.  Anyone using any of the 2021.X releases has 2021.X compatible add-ons (or, potentially, disabled incompatible ones, but that's a different kettle of fish).
