Re: NVDA failed to install

Hi


If you do not want the UAC screen to come up when installing nvda and some other programs he will need to do the following.

Press the windows key and in the search box type uac it should come up with a suggestion press the enter key on it.

The next screen that comes up you will need to Tab until you hear the slider it is set to 65 percent or around there change it to zero with the arrow keys left or right then tab down to ok then press the enter key.


It will reboot the pc if I remember right and the uac screen will not come up again. It can be turned back on by doing the same process except in the slider change from zero back to 65 percent or what ever it is.

hope it helps.

Hello!


You can try this one:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/n78xf7022gdbsqr/NAPS2TesseractOCR_2022.06.nvda-addon?dl=1


It contains only a few OCR languages, but you can import the ones you need through the configuration panel included in the NVDA settings.

If it do not detect automatically your scanner, try to do the following:

1 - Go to %appdata%\nvda\addons,

2 - Go to NAPS2TesseractOCR, globalPlugins, NAPS2TesseractOCR, naps2-6.1.2-portable;

3 - Execute the app NAPS2.Portable.exe,

4 - Tab until Main Menu;

5 - Arrow right to Profiles and press Enter;

6 - Tab until Edit and press Enter;

7 - Shift tab untill Driver WIA;

8 - Arrow down to Driver TWAIN;

9 - Tab untill Select device, press Enter and select your device;

10 - Tab untill Ok and press enter;

11 - Tab untill Finish and press Enter.

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

When I do  windows plus R and at the run prompt, type winver, the answer is version 1803 and build 17134 something.  I've tried to find how to update windows but can't find it.  It wants to update my office 2003; and I know there's no update for that; but that's all it shows.  There must be a way to do this?

Re: nvda dictionary

 

Jon,

You would need to be a lot more specific about exactly the steps you're taking before anyone could venture a guess about what you're doing wrong.

See the tutorial I wrote:  Using the NVDA Dictionaries with Regular Expression Matching to Change Pronunciations (docx)

 


Even if you're not using a Regular Expression match, the steps are the same except for the radio button you'll choose if you are not doing a regular expression match.

Luke, to answer your question, my friend and I were talking about this and
I
brought it up. I downloaded and installed the addon, while waiting for
her
to send me what she saw with JAWS, and it didn't make any difference.
Sarah, so you're saying you saw all of what JAWS shows within Zoom using
NVDA? I've never seen it, whether on a free or paid account, across two
computers. I do see the radio buttons that ask what calendar I wish to
use,
and I presume that if I didn't discard the invite once Outlook opened,
I'd
be able to schedule it as a recurring meeting with the parameters I want,
but that only adds it to my Outlook calendar. If I use the mobile app on
my
phone, something similar happens, as the dates I want are added to my
phone's calendar, but Zoom still shows as a recurring meeting meeting
anytime. With this setup, the meeting invite that is copied to the
clipboard
and is what I usually send out doesn't show any date or time information,
which basically puts me in the same situation I'm in now where I have to
remember to add the date and time information in manually.

Update: I see all of that, so maybe something corrupted in your zoom
or copy of nvda. Run the reg tool in nvda and see if that helps. I
even see "schedule from outlook" and "schedule from google. Also go to
your profile in zoom and check for updates.

Good luck.

Perhaps does a ticket need to be put in for this?
Meeting Title
Add description link I usually tab past, NVDA doesn't even see this
Choose date Select start time Select start time unit Select duration
hours minutes Select time zone, again NVDA completely skips over
Recurring check box Select recurrence type radio button
first option a specified interval
Second option something like On and then combo boxes for
first..last and then for day of the week. NVDA sees none of this.
end date another Radio button either specify a date or after combo box
occurrences again NVDA doesn't see this registration required
checkbox, again not shown by NVDA. After that is meeting ID and

that may only be the case if Zoom is authenticated with Google

I'll have to play around with Zoom a bit more and see if I can see

Yep they are sure there. I had a calendar invite when I had the
free account option a while ago, maybe that has changed now?

So, there's no way to do it within Zoom itself, the scheduling has
to be done with your calendar of choice? I'll try the web
interface, as in the invite that my friend sends, there is usually
a link to a calendar invite, which I've never seen before.

Hello Bob and all,
You have two ways of scheduling a zoom meeting.
Either you use the zoom desktop application or you use the web
interface.
1. With the zoom app
You will be able to scheduling a recurring meeting but not how
often it will happen.
1. In the first tab of zoom, tab until you hear something like
schedule a new meeting.
2. Hit enter.
3. You will have to type the meeting subject. NVDA does not always
speak what you type. So you should use tab and shift+tab to update
what NVDA pronounces. May be you should select what is proposed by
default, by typing
ctrl+a, and write your own subject.
4. When you tab, you can choose the meeting date. By default, Zoom
displays today's date and time. Tab to reach the month. NVDA
announces, "month and something like rotating button". Use up and
down arrows in order to be sure that the month you want is selected.
5. Use tab again and choose the day you want with up and down
arrows.
6. When you tab again, you can select the year.
7. When tabbing again you can reach the time you wish. Note that
the first zone is the actual time, you cannot modify it. Tab again
and you will hear the hours and with another tab, the minutes. You
still can use up and down arrows to select hours and minutes. NVDA
should speak what you are modifying with up and down arrows.
8. When tabbing again, you can select how long the meeting should
last.
One
hour, for example. You still can modify this with up and down
arrows.
NVDA
does not always update what is changing so that you should use tab
and
shift+tab to be sure you have selected the right length.
9. Tab again until you hear recurring meeting, checkbox unchecked.
Check it with the space bar.
You will hear an alert that you should ensure that your calendar
can schedule such a meeting. Mine is linked to Outlook but you can
also link to google or any other calendar.
In my case, Outlook asked me to confirm the meeting and I can
choose if the meeting should occur every week, or month.
2. When using zoom in a browser
When you connect to Zoom, you can look for the meetings' tab and
look for your next meeting.
You also have a link to schedule a new meeting.
If you have saved it in the zoom app, you will find this meeting
on the zoom page.
You will have a heading 3 with a link to start the meeting.
You can then read the subject of the meeting then the time.
Under this you can read something like recurring.
After that you have "add to" and links to Google agenda, Outlook
calendar .ics, or yahoo calendar.
When you click on google, for example, a new window will open
asking you to connect to your Google account.
Google asks to confirm that you accept that zoom shares this
information with google.
Select "continue".
You will then find a form with your meeting, you can select the
time, the length and then you have a drop down list where you can
choose if the meeting should occur once, every day, every week,
every month, every year....
Then you can select who you want to invite to this meeting. What
the invited people may do (modify meeting, invite others ....) You
can choose when sending the notification and how (by e-mail for
example)

Then you have to go back to find the button save and you have your
meeting.
I hope this can help.
Otherwise do not hesitate to ask.
Best
Sylvie
