scheduling a recurring Zoom meeting with NVDA

Bob Cavanaugh
 

Hi all,
Does anyone know how to schedule a recurring Zoom meeting using NVDA?
I can check the box that says that the meeting is a recurring meeting,
but then Zoom says "this is a recurring meeting, meet anytime." I'm
looking for a solution where I can keep the same meeting link every
month, but also have the meeting date and time show up in the invite.
I know this can be done, as a friend of mine runs a meeting at the
same time on the first Saturday of the month, and the invite shows a
series of dates. She has some vision and also has JAWS installed, so
can't help me all that much. Apparently, after checking the recurring
meeting box in JAWS, a time picker shows up. Does anyone have any
experience with this in NVDA?
Thanks,
Bob


Re: hello, is there anyway I can get the previous version of NVDA, a lot of my addons do not work since updating

 

Do you have the add-on updater installed? If not, you definitely should. It is highly recommended.

previous version, that would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for any
help.






Re: windows 10 app esentials add-on

 

I am going to throw out here that any NVDA user that also uses add-ons would be doing themselves a service to be certain that they have the Add-On Updater add-on as one they've got installed.

Virtually any, "Where do I get the latest . . . ?," questions for all the official add-ons go away when Add-On Updater is in use.  When a newer version of one of the "official add-ons" is released, Add-On Updater will detect that and fetch and install it.

If memory serves, the Add-On Updater functionality is eventually supposed to be integrated into the NVDA Core Code, but I am not 100% positive of that recollection nor of any official timeline.  For now, get the Add-On Updater Add-On.

Hi           

As far as I am aware, each language pack has a set of TTS voices and for a specific voice you need to find out which language pack it belongs to. And download that.  I have 9 different Onecore voices available and have loaded the English United Kingdom, English United States and English Canada language                                         packs to get them.

 

Cheers

Hi Chris

 

Thank you, Chris.

 

I have got it, but I cannot understand why I do not find English

United Kingdom even after typing in the edit box.

 

If a voice doesn't show in the list, how does one get it?

 

Thanking you in advance for your help.

Re: question regarding voices

Rui Fontes
 

Hello!


First of all, Vocalizer voices are property of Cerence, Inc., a company founded by Nuance, wich is the prior owner of Vocalizer voices...


Tiflotecnia first, and later CodeFactory, made a contract with Nuance to sell their voices to NVDA users.

To force the utilization only with NVDA were created NVDA add-ons.


When you buy a license from one of the companies, it will be only valid for the product of that company...

There are any license allowing the use of voices from both companies...


Best regards,

Rui Fontes
Tiflotecnia, Lda.

If I open a message and let NVDA do what it wants, I hear reading pane grouping repeated twice, and then page 1 spoken.  If I use Read to end, I begin to hear reading pane and then I hear page 1 and the message begins to be read.  I've eliminated hearing reading pane once and most of another announcement of the same thing.  I've eliminated enough repetition to amount to something.  Messages are read automatically when I use Windows Mail.  I don't know why some aren't in your case.  But even if they are, you re still hearing needless repetition when you open all messages.

Re: windows 10 app esentials add-on

You can read about it and download it here:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/wintenApps.en.html

You can get Outlook 2013 to work with it if you use an application specific password from Google. 

Whatever you do, you may want to check to see if messages are being deleted from the server when you delete them using Windows Mail.  I am not saying my experience is typical or represents others' experiences, but using GMail, when I delete a message using Windows Mail, it remains on the server, I believe in the inbox.

For Windows 11 specifically, you can find the full what's new here:

 

But just from the blurb, there are a few things for Windows 11.  Firstly using UIA in newer versions Word by default, which should make it much more responsive.  There are also various Windows 11 bug fixes, for apps such as Calculator, Console, Terminal, Mail and Emoji Panel.

 

I believe the Code Factory update should be out soon, and hopefully the other add-ons which haven't yet been updated will be out soon too!

Hi:

 

I figure they were working on it.

 

I have to admit I have not been reading everything that came across the list, so there may have been posted some kind of warning about this issue.

 

Regardless, this is not a showstopper for me.

 

I am sure NVDA developers had a good reason for the changes that were made, and NVDA’s advantages outweigh any temporary loss of convenience.  Choice is a good thing, and NVDA gives us one more choice.

 

Actually, the thing I like the best about NVDA is that the screen review method is a little similar to the old DOS screen reader ASAP, and that was my number one go-to in my DOS days.  I still have my copy of ASAP and pull it out whenever I access a DOS program.

 

I’ll keep checking CodeFactory’s Web site.

windows 10 app esentials add-on

Rosemarie Chavarria
 

Hi, everyone,

 

I’m now using the mail app because outlook 2013 is no longer working with my gmail account. Where do I get the new version of windows 10 app esentials? I think I might need it for the mail app which I’m now using. I can read some messages in the mail app but not others. This add-on might be helpful.

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

 

Rosemarie
