Hi Bryce,

It is not an app; it is a feature of nvda itself.
I use it often as my hearing is not the best and I want to know the exact spelling of a name or word.

So, say I come across the word Banff, as in Banff national park in alberta.
And I think was that an "f" or an :s:?
I use the right arrow to land on the letter I am not sure of, and press the down arrow twice quickly. That it, you will hear the alpha bravo equivalent.

It isn't the down arrow on the main keyboard.  It is 2 on the numpad.  I don't know the laptop command.  2 on the numpadd when used with NVDA reads the current character and pressing  it twice says the phonetic name such as Charlie for c.

Re: holding off on 2022.1 due to Code Factory dragging their feet

Joseph Norton
 

Hi Juan:

 

CodeFactory sells versions of the Eloquence and Vocalizer speech which can be used with any screen reader.  These are the SAPI versions.  The SAPI versions of these synthesizers can be used with NVDA, JAWS, and I think Narrator may even be able to use them.

 

CodeFactory also makes a combined product that includes Eloquence and Vocalizer as an NVDA add-on, and this is the package that we have been discussing.

 

The SAPI synthesizer is fairly independent of any screen reader.

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.

Not sure if this is much help, but I've done this before by using the
zoom-> google calendar integration. It's possible to configure events
(meetings) the same way you do any other event if you link Google Calendar
with your zoom account. I think it's also possible by linking Outlook as
well.

Hi all,

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?
