Re: time and date key (NVDA plus F12)

Gene
 

That is not   a desktop command.  The command is documented in the user guide as NVDA key f12.  I didn't check the user guide, but I just switched to the laptop layout and you can use the same command. 

I asked about a command like NVDA key n to try to determine if the problem is an NVDA problem, perhaps it should be reinstalled, or something else.

Knowing who's speaking on Zoom recordings

Janet Brandly
 

Hi all,

 

Is there a way for NVDA to announce who’s speaking on a video of a Zoom recording? I’m transcribing a file with multiple speakers and having problems keeping all the speakers straight.

 

Thank you,

 

Janet


Re: time and date key (NVDA plus F12)

Tyler Spivey
 

A standard USB keyboard doesn't mean that it will do what you expect it to. It might have a few extra features.
Try this:
1. Turn on input help with NVDA+1.
2. Press F10 through F12, then turn off input help with NVDA+1.
What do they say?
If they don't say F10 through F12, then you've either got some key remapping software on your computer, or in your keyboard.
Some keyboards have an FN lock key (or combination) that changes what the function keys send.

Re: NVDA addon The direct link

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

While I guess this add on serves the purpose for some who don't want to fiddle with editing addresses in the address bar, you can do this manually with dropbox links by changing the very last character of the address from the number 0 to the number 1.  I am not sure how it works for Google or phone numbers, but it is probably similar--change an element of the address.

Re: Punctuation

How do you mean. Are you reading by character? If so you will not get rid of the exclaim at all as it will by default speak. You never said what you wanted to do, ever. Make this clear and we can help you otherwise we are beating a dead horse here.

I don’t think this should be in the core IMHO but if you really want it, submit it via github, or if you know how to code, code it and submit it to the developer team for review.  What use case  would you provide to justify this, examples, etc.

You could do that, however, if the pause or brake key is bound to an fn key as well you will be in the same boat. That could work in the interim though.

Re: crashes in the last few betas

 

Hi all,

Based on the debug log Dan sent me, I notice several things working in concert here:

  1. The first error from the log has to do with a badly formatted add-on manifest, which happens to belong to what I think is an older version of Speech History add-on. Specifically, NVDA (via Python) cannot parse specific manifest fields, causing the add-on to fail to load.
  2. A number of COM (Component Object Model) errors are seen when performing actions in Thunderbird 91. COM errors do cause NVDA to play error tones but does not impact NVDA functionality. If you are using alpha or beta releases, hearing error tones is normal, but that does not mean NVDA has crashed (you will know NVDA has crashed when it suddenly restarts without you doing anything).

Overall: do not worry about error tones as it is meant to communicate info to be passed onto developers, or if developers (like myself) are hearing error tones, it's a message telling us to read the log to find out what happened.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: whenever I (or any developer) ask for a log, PLEASE SEND THEM PRIVATELY AS IT MAY CONTAIN SENSITIVE INFORMATION! When I offer diagnoses and conclusions, they are based on info from the debug logs I get and could be described as overall summaries (I will not go into add-on compatibility diagnosis unless: the add-on is indeed working and this add-on is responsible for causing the errors reported).

Joseph

Punctuation

Hi Peter

Below is a copy of the message I sent you 4 days ago, to which I received no response.  We have tried to help you with this issue recently and on previous occasions and have asked you for details of what steps you are taking to rectify the problems you are experiencing.  To summarise, the only feedback we get from you is “I’ve tried everything, nothing works”.  When I and probably others on the list, try to assist someone requesting help, information in their message is used to assess the level of understaning of the issue and the response is pitched accordingly.  The responses you give provide no feedback whatsoever.  Think of it as a math problem, we need to see the workings as well as the result.

 

I am using Windows 10, NVDA 2021.3.5 and MS OneCore voice.  , Here is my message again:

 

Part 1 - Using the Punctuation/Symbol Pronunciation dialog, set the levels to”All” for both instances of exclaim and apostrophe. There are 2 entries in the dialog for each of these so there are 4 entries to check.  This completes Part1 of the process.

 

Part 2 - Once you have done the above, you need to set the Symbol level you want to hear.  If you press NVDA+p repeatedly, you will hear NVDA cycle around the available options which are, In order, None, Some, Most and All.  Stop pressing NVDA+p when you hear the level you want to set. 

The Symbol level setting chosen determines which Punctuation/Symbol characters are announced as you readusing Say all, Say Line and Say word commands as it will only announce punctuation/Symbol characters which have a level equal to or lower, set in the Punctuation/Symbol Pronunciation dialog discussed in Part 1.  Note that reading by character will always read the character, irrespective of the level set for it.  This completes Part 2 of the process.

 

Examples:

Set Symbol level (Part 2) to “Some” and it will only announce Punctuation/Symbols with levels of “None” and “Some” as set in Part 1.

 

Set Symbol level (Part 2) to “All” and it will only announce Punctuation/Symbols with levels of “None”, “Some”, Most”  and ”All” as set in Part 1.

 

Cheers

                Chris

I am using Windows one core voice George and don’t have another screenreader.

I don't recall if these two suggestions were made.  Have you tried using a portable version?  Also, have you tried another screen-reader using the same synthesizer?

Excel and sort data

William
 

Hello,


1. Open any excel file

2. filled the worksheet with some data with the first row as the header

3. select all existing data by ctrl +a

4. go to data tab, press sort button

5. tab to any of the dropdown menu

6. press up or down arrow, everytime when I press up or down arrow, nvda will say list box  list xxxx

7. after I have selected one of the item and press tab, nvda will repeat the name of the current worksheet and says excel unavailable, followed by the next item.


Would you please comment on whether this is a nvda or excel problem? Thanks.

William
