Re: visited links

 

What are you proposing NVDA announce?

Generally you get "link" for a link that you've never visited and "visited link" for something you've actually "clicked through" to visit before.

In NVDA and other screen readers there are generally navigation shortcuts that allow you to go straight to links you've visited before versus unvisited links along with a visitation agnostic shortcut.

Thank you all. Yes, I think I did it right. I used the MediaCreationTool and got Windows updated. Now I installed NVDA 22.1 and got the synthesizer I wanted. Now, I think the rest is straight forrward. We'll find out tomorrow.

Sarah,

Thank you for your support of a decades old mailing list convention - keeping all material related to a given topic under the same subject it was introduced with.  It makes life so much easier for people who wish to follow specific topics and for a much "cleaner" archive for those who search it.

I have already merged the "Q" topic back into this one.  Given the cryptic nature of that subject line, I have to believe it was an entirely accidental change, and those do happen every once in a while.  But everything, including the two posts that occurred under subject "Q" are now back as part of this, the original topic.

Re: NVDA freezes when editing a cell in Microsoft Excel

Luciano de Souza
 

The spreadsheet has many data writen. It's not very simple. Dispite that, there are only a few calculations. I imagine they are not enough to cause such dramatic problem.
I have closed Excel and reopened it. In a new file, I have writen my name and pressed "enter". In fact, NVDA replies very well. For this reason, perhaps you have reason about the volume of data.
Yes, there are only few calculations, but the spreadsheet uses validation very much.
There are no less than a thousand cells with list validations. Dispite having few calculations, perhaps validations, used in a large ammount, harmes the spreadsheet performance.
If NVDA doesn't lead well with validations, I have a big problem since this is the spreadsheet of my real world.

Em 02/06/2022 00:19, Quentin Christensen escreveu:

Hi Luciano,

From what you describe, it sounds like the issue is occuring when the spreadsheet tries to update itself.  I have a large spreadsheet which does that and basically it does freeze Excel while it is calculating, so you can't do anything - and that happens even if NVDA is not running.  I appreciate you said your spreadsheet was not so large, so I'm not sure, although it does sound basically the same.

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

Re: Available free TTS that support NVDA 2022.1

Hi guys. I don't think E-speak is all that bad. You can play with it
nowadays and some of the different voices aren't all that bad. It
does take some getting used to. If you want to be a bit weird, play
around with the pitch and inflection. Espeak can sound really weird
then. It does get annoying after the first few minutes, but it is a
bit fun.

Hi all,

To my understanding, besides the native Windows OneCore, is RH voice the

only available free option for TTS voices for NVDA?

Thanks.

I do like some of the voices in Edge, but is there a way to duplicate those? They seem better than the Microsoft native ones to me.

I think Svox Pico has been made to work now. Its actually the same voice used on many Samsung TVs.

I admit it's been a while since I looked at the site, but last time I
did there was a short list of currently unsupported addons that work
with older versions on the NVDA website, but I can't remember where
that was and I think it was only voices. I remember seeing SVox Pico
there, which I used briefly several years ago.

Re: Old versions of add-ons

Yes one case in point is that for reasons I'll not go into here, I like to retain Goldwave 32 bit, but all the latest add ons are for the 64 bit, so I keep an older copy and install it on an older version of nvda portable for this reason. The one add on I'd like to see made 2022.1 ready is the sound schemes/3D sound one which I find aids me in knowing a bit more about physical screen layout, but the author has either moved his address, died or is not interested.
