NVDA update notification doesn't appear automatically

Louise Pfau
 

Hi.  The NVDA update notification didn't come up, even though I've got NVDA set to both check for updates on startup and notify for pending updates.  When I checked for updates manually, I was informed that some of my add-ons were incompatible.  I should've paid attention, because I ended up rolling back to 2021.3.5.  I'm using Windows 10 pro Version 21H2 (OS Build 19044.1706).

Thanks,

Louise

Hi list! I got my windows ten app to finally work!  I had to get the windows app from the Microsoft store.  I had to read the account. I had to allow it since I’m using gmail.  Usually I get a friend to fix these things for me. But I did it myself! Woo hoo.  I went on google / start page to read how to fix the windows ten app. And I did it! I followed the instructions to the t!

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.

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.

Good evening gurus

Hopw still well.

I am where all others are.

Another bothering request.

I often se, if I may call it that way, a tray of languages in the win

If it is gone, where has it gone?

How do I bring it back?

Or is there a keyboard command to switch languages?

Please help.

Something like that, yes. But there is no official timeline, because a bunch of large things about the way add-ons are managed have to change behind the scenes first, as I understand it.

Don't expect this in anything like the near future.
It's one of those "it'll happen when it happens" situations.

Add-on Updater, and Windows App Essentials, are still the number one most important add-ons that any user should be running, as practically the first thing you do with NVDA.

Re: windows builtin ssh client

That's interesting. I don't have Windows 11, but have you played with the settings in the advanced page of the NVDA settings dialogue? There's a few console settings that may help there.

nvda sound themes addon

 

Hello that was an addon that named sound themes.
it makes different sound on the buttons checkboxes radioboxes select boxes links including the side of the where h the current item placed on the monitors area.
is there any working version of this addon? or is it under development?
Regards: D


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: 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

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?

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.

I'm not saying this to give you a hard time, but I've seen you be really finicky about e-mail programs.  Screen-readers are in complex environments with all sorts of possible behaviors to account for.  You say messages aren't read automatically.  In almost every e-mail program I've used, you need to issue the read to end command after opening a message to have messages read as you wish, either without a lot of repetition of the subject line first or some other behavior or behaviors you don't want.  I therefore use Read to end after opening every message in various e-mail programs where it results in proper behavior, and I get the behavior I want.  Once you do this for a little while, it will  become second nature. 

There are some behaviors of screen-readers that you can't reasonably solve and the best thing to do is to adopt this or that action.
