Thanks so much.  I don't care what default is, if only I can change it. 

Thanks so much for the info.

You can eliminate this announcement in the following way:
Open the document formatting dialog using the command control NVDA d.  That is, hold control and the NVDA key and type d while doing so.
Tab through the items and you will eventually get to block quotes.  It is a check box.  Uncheck it with the space bar, then press enter. 

You won't hear block quotes identified in places like e-mails or web pages.

Re: Question Regarding Browse setting

Gene
 

The commands aren't defined in Input Help.  However, the difference in behavior may depend on whether  Windows 7 or Windows 10 or 11 is being used. 

In Windows 7, at least on my machine, what I said is the case.  In Windows 10, both f1 and shift f1 do the same thing, in other words they both bring up context sensitive help.

I wouldn't think the version of Windows would make any difference but it seems to.

That is not the normal experience. Check your keyboard layout against NVDA input help. F1 is supposed to work alone for this, although if your browser remembers where you were last reading in the manual, it may not work so well.

I don't think it is generally known.  I don't recall seeing it discussed here before.

Perhaps I shouldn't have recommended it. It is apparently an undocumented feature, and does not work in every possible place within NVDA currently. It does work in most or all of the settings panels though, and is worth trying if you can't remember what something does.

Now that I know that context sensitive help is available, there may be times I refer people to it.  I don't think it is generally known.  I don't recall seeing it discussed here before.

And it will save me time on occasions when I want to look up what a command does.

Python pring function with flush=True NVDA not reading the updated messages in Windows PowerShell

William
 

Hello,

This question is partly related to NVDA and partly related to Windows PowerShell.


Supposed I have the following python script and stored in a python file 'test.py', which print out a new string of text after every second.


import time

for i in np.arange(10):

    print('Sleeping', f"{str(round((i-1)/secs*100, 0)).removesuffix('.0')}%", end="\r", flush=True)

    time.sleep(1)

1. I open Windows PowerShell

2. type python test.py

3. the script starts running

I am expecting that NVDA can automatically speak out the new string of text, but in my test, after the first 'Spleeping...' was spoken, NVDA did not speak the updated messages.


What can I do to make NVDA speak the updated messages? Thanks.

William

What behavior was different?  the box should be checked by default.  If the behavior is now the same when the check box is checked, that was the problem.

Re: Questions About Vocalizer for NVDA

Abhishek Raut
 

Hello.
I have seen all the messages, And I would like to suggest you, Don't go for indo nvda and code factory Vocalizer.
I have bought the code factory Vocalizer, and It do not deserve the value which we paid.
I am Using voices for marathi, and, hindi.
These voices are very bad in quality, doesn't matter you install pro, or any quality.
About Indo nvda, it is nothing but code factory Vocalizer.
I don't know the price of indo nvda, but it maybe expensive than code factory.
I have bought code factory for 6000 INR, and maybe indo nvda is more expensive than it.
Also the code factory services too bad.
I did mail them to many times, but the frequency of getting reply is very less.
Other here mention, I don't used that. But I suggest, Take a good trial, then purchase.
Thank you

Re: Question Regarding Browse setting

I'd only worry about those settings if you are dissatisfied with how you move through a page.  I don't know the significance of the lines per page setting.  When I load a web page, it is fully loaded and that is how I want it. 

If you are looking through text such as an article, shorter lines means that you may find what you are looking for more easily on a shorter line.  There is less to read per line and it may be faster to skim.

Re: NVDA and reporting of spelling error

I haven't compared the two.  I use word very little.  Browse mode in Word allows you to use all sorts of features you may find useful.  I don't use Word enough to discuss them further. 

I may check to see where the subject is discussed in the user guide.

I don't know if anyone is reading this thread who doesn't know what is being discussed.  I'll briefly explain it.

In Word, NVDA space places you in browse mode.  W moves you to the next misspelled word.  You can hear the word in context by reading the current line. 

When you are finished in browse mode, NVDA space turns browse mode off and you can work directly with the document, such as edit it, just as before.

What Languages Truly Need TTS Voices?

Louder Pages
 

Hello, I hope this is not off topic.

I would ask that people reply directly to me at lp@... rather than flood this thread.

We at Louder Pages are looking to prioritize candidates for new languages for our free. RHVoice collection.

Priority is given to languages which either have no existing TTS voice, or which have a large number of users who have only poor quality voices to choose from.

We are particularly interested in African languages, and in the languages of Southern and South East Asia.

If anyone has good arguments for why a language should be a candidate, would you please email me at lp@...?

Thanks.
