It is there you just have to work a bit to get it.

The views show more or less is a check box.

If you check the box your sound might start and then again you may have to play with it like I do.

Looks like it only got coded for one view and not both.

You also have visual studio 19 besides vs code.

They both have free options and work well with screen readers.

You may have a better time with visual studio for c++.

Actually, I can think of two. NVDA+U cycles through four choices for dealing
with progress bars, and NVDA+P cycles through four levels of Symbol
verbosity.

Re: TesseractOCR add-on

Mobeen Iqbal
 

Hello Rui.

Thanks for this add-on. I have been trying to get it working, but can't seem to get my scanner to scan. Does it have support for twain scanners? or does it just support WIA devices? Also, I can't find anywhere to specify which scanner to use as my system has more than one. I would like to use a twain scanner if possible. Do you know of an add-on which allows use of a twain scanner for OCR?

Very best wishes,

Mo.

Hello!

Released version 2022.05 of TesseractOCR, as first public version...


• Authors: Rui Fontes rui.fontes@... and Angelo Abrantes ampa4374@...
• Updated in 28/05/2022

• Download stable version:

https://github.com/ruifontes/tesseractOCR/releases/download/2022.05/tesseractOCR-2022.05.nvda-addon

• Compatibility: NVDA version 2019.3 and beyond


*** Informations

This add-on uses the free and open source Tesseract OCR engine, to perform optical character recognition on an image file, PDF, JPG, TIF or other, without the need to open it.

It also can scan and recognize a paper document through a WIA compatible scanner.

In the Preferences of NVDA, it is created a cathegory, TesseractOCR, where you can set the language to be used on the recognition and the type of documents to be recognized.


*** Shortcuts

The default commands are:

Windows+Control+r - to recognize the selected document;

Windows+Control+Shift+r - to scan and recognize a document through the scanner.

Then just wait that ocr.txt opens with the recognized text.

If you want to preserve the recognized text, don't forget to save the document under another name and in another location, as all files in the temporary directory are deleted at the start of the next OCR process!

This commands can be modified in the "Input gestures" dialog in the "TesseractOCR" section.


*** Automatic update

This add-on includes an automatic update feature. The check for a new version will be executed everytime NVDA is loaded. If you want this, go to NVDA, Preferences, Options and in the add-on category check the check box.


*** Known problems

• This version only works in 64-bit Windows.
• When selecting the "Various" option in the "Documents type" combobox, the recognized text probably appear with many blank lines This is a known problem with Tesseract, and, without consumming lots of processing time, I haven't yet found any solution. But, I still haven't given up!


*** Languages supported

The supported languages in this version are: Afrikans Amharik Arabic Bulgarian Burnese Catalan/Valencian Chinese simplified Chinese traditional Croatian Czech Dannish Deutch Dutch English Finnish French Galician Georgian Greek Hebrew Hindi Hungarian Icelandic Indonesian Irish Italian Japanese Kannada Kirghiz Korean Lativia Lituanian Macedonian Nepali Norwegian Panjabi Persian Polish Portuguese Romanian/Moldave Russian Serbian (Latin) Slovak) Slovenian) Spanis Swedish Tamil Thai Turkish Ukrainian Urdu Vietnamese


*** Image types supported

This add-on supports the following types of files: PDF jpg tif png bmp pnm pbm pgm jp2 gif jfif jpeg tiff spix webp

NVDA freezes when editing a cell in Microsoft Excel

Luciano de Souza
 

Hello all,

When editing cells in Microsoft Excel, I’m facing a very serious slowness.

I type the content, I press “enter” and NVDA freezes.

Ten seconds later, the voice returns to normality.

It’s not a particular heavy worksheet, so the performance should be good.

Restarting NVDA in debug mode, I found a message saying that the gainFocus event failed.

The problems occurs in two machines:

·         The first one with Windows 10, Office 2019 e NVDA 2022-1;

·         The second one with Windows 10, Office 365 e NVDA 2022-1.

In both machine, I have tested also with NVDA 2020-3 with the same bad results.

I also ran the register fixer tool offered by NVDA.

The installed version, there’s no addons or customization in its settings.

Both machines have good performance when executing other tasks.

In Excel, I turned off the automatic calculation to attenuate the problem.

In fact, disabled the automatic calculation, the performance becomes adequate.

However, pressing F9 to calculate, the screen reader freezes again.

As mentioned, the file doesn’t have heavy formulas or a large amount of data.

I could not understand what is succeeding, so I ask you for a help.

I wish this message find everyone good and I thank for staying here.

 

Best regards,

Luciano de Souza

What do you mean exactly? You are hearing NVDA announce the letters,
numbers, and punctuation as you type? You can change that behavior with
NVDA+2 on the number row.

Re: Audible

Gene
 

I was curious about the problem so I looked at the page.  This is an instance, which happens on some sites, where you can move to the field when browse mode is off.  When the page loads, turn browse mode off and tab.  You should find the field perhaps just by tabbing once and you can enter your search.  At times, I see a combo box that you can type in, at times, I've seen an edit field.  I don't know what accounts for that.

This work around is important to keep in mind because it is necessary to be in focus mode on some sites to see some fields.

Hello,

Here is how I solved the problem. While the focus was on the whole QuickAssist window, I've used NVDA's command to move the mouse cursor to the currently focused object (which in this case should be the whole QuickAssist window) and them simulated a single left mouse click. That moved the focus inside the QuickAssist window/document. This has to be done each time the QuickAssist program is launched, but it is still better than nothing.

Hi there. Hope you're doing great.

I have used dev cpp, vs code, and visual studio for c++.
if you really want to use any IDE for c++, I'll recommend visual
studio if your pc can afford it.
otherwise, dev is fine, but it is not very much accessible though.
if you don't want to use any IDE, then you can try gcc with any text
editor. like notepad or notepad++.

Thanks.
