Hi all, I’ve installed CloudVision addon, but after pressing the corresponding keys ctrl plus NVDA plus I. it says analyzing. But nothing happens after that. Am I missing some settings in the addon? How can I use it properly, please assist me. Thanks.

Re: Web developer issue with NVDA reading the word "us"

Greg Williams
 

Hi,

As has been pointed out elsewhere in this thread, most synthesizers will pronounce "US" as "U S" because that is generally what is intended. Good directions have been given for modifying the speech dictionary for NVDA to get an individual's set up to read it as "us". However, as a web developer, if the idea is to add something to the button on the webpage itself so that synthesizers read "US" as "us" instead of "U S", and if "CONTACT US" is desired for visual aesthetics, then the best option is to add an aria-label to the button definition, like <button ... aria-label="Contact Us" ...>CONTACT US</button>. This will cause screen readers to read the button label as "Contact Us" instead of "CONTACT US".

Hello! I am a web developer who recently started working with NVDA. I am having an issue that the screen reader is reading the button "Contact Us" as "Contact U S" (as if I was referencing the United States). Is there any way to get the reader to read the phrase correctly?

Chickennugget allows it but you have to switch.  I don’t’ think it lets you combine them.

Re: NVDA failed to install

Howard Traxler
 

Thanks Dave, but that's all behind me now.

I reinstalled windows using a USB thumb drive that I made from the Media Creation Tool on another machine.  Then I installed NVDA which went as it should

And thanks to whoever it was who told me about the UAC thing.  I'll save that for future emergencies.

But you did. It's not locking up, it's opening a UAC prompt, which is a secure screen.

Either press Alt+Y, or turn on Narrator with Control+Windows+Enter, read the secure screen window, and do what it says.

Since you don't seem to be aware of this: when Windows needs higher security permissions than your user has, it brings up a UAC (User Account Control) prompt. That prompt runs as the system administrative user. It's what NVDA calls a "secure screen".
Since that is a different user then the one you're running as, that other user isn't running NVDA. That's why it doesn't talk, and you think it's locking up. But it's not locking up, it just isn't talking.

You either need to be able to handle that screen on auto-pilot, by pressing Alt+Y, or you need to enter a password for an admin level account, which probably requires speech to be successful at this stage. To get speech, you either have to install NVDA and have it run on secure screens (a chicken and egg problem in this case), or you need to run Narrator in the admin user account as I described.

You should try to finish installing NVDA before updating Windows, in case that isn't obvious.

Re: NVDA failed to install

In that case, try alt y whether you hear something or not.  Even if you don't hear a sound, you should hear something such as NVDA say, secure desktop.  That doesn't tell you that UAC has come up, but under the circumstances, installing a program, it is almost certain to be what has happened.

ARIA: status role

Eilana Benish
 

hello everyone

Does nv-access keeps database regarding the aria-roles compatibility with the latest version off NVDA?

For example it seems that ARIA: status role is not compatible wait the latest version of NVDA in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. it seems that this role is only compatible with voiceover on a Mac computers.

Thanks in advance


Re: where is the nvda configuration folder on the computer?

For those asking about the log. I made this quick and dirty batch file up to reboot nvda and load the last log into Notepad.
Don't shoot me just yet.
@echo off
cd "%temp%"
start /WAIT nvda.exe -q

start notepad.exe nvda.log
rem, this line just kicks its heels for a bit to make sure the log is loaded into notepad before rebooting nvda.
ping -n 5 127.0.0.1>nul
start nvda.exe

exit

Re: New version of Dictionaries add-on

When you speak of dictionaries, do you mean something like word replacement dictionaries for your screen reader or synthesizer or a real dictionary where you can look up spellings and meanings? The lookup type of dictionary would be a very handy tool.

On 6/5/2022 12:14 PM, Rui Fontes wrote:
Hello friends!


It is now available the version 22.06 of this add-on!


Here is the readme:


## Introduction
This add-on provides a quick way to access, so far, 68 dictionaries.
In order not to overload the add-on , only the dictionaries for Portuguese, English and between these two languages are provided.
The remaining can be downloaded through the add-on itself, using the new interface for managing dictionaries.
We are available to add other dictionaries. So if you want to add a dictionary, please contact one of the authors.


## Usage

To start using this add-on , press Control+Shift+F6.
A window will open where we find a list of the dictionaries present on our computer, from which we can choose the one we want to use, and open it with Enter.
We also have a button to access the window where we can manage dictionaries, a button to set the default dictionary, and finally a button to close the add-on , which is also achieved with Escape.

In the Manage Dictionaries window, we have two tabs: Manage and Download.
On the first tab, we can set the order in which the dictionaries appear in the list or delete the selected dictionary.
On the Download tab we can choose the dictionaries we want to download to use.


## Commands
The command to invoke the extra is Control+Shift+F6.
You can also use the command Control+Windows+F6 to access the default dictionary search directly.
Note: If you do not define a default dictionary, the first dictionary in the list will be used.

You can change these commands in the Input gestures  dialog, in the Dictionaries section.


## Auto update

This add-on includes an auto update feature.

Checking for a new version will be performed each time NVDA is loaded.

If you want this to happen, go to the NVDA menu, Preferences, Settings and in the category of the extra check the checkbox.

Re: New version of Dictionaries add-on

Howard Traxler
 

Sorry but I think I'm missing something here:

When you speak of dictionaries, do you mean something like word replacement dictionaries for your screen reader or synthesizer or a real dictionary where you can look up spellings and meanings?  The lookup type of dictionary would be a very handy tool.

Hello friends!


It is now available the version 22.06 of this add-on!


Here is the readme:


## Introduction
This add-on provides a quick way to access, so far, 68 dictionaries.
In order not to overload the add-on , only the dictionaries for Portuguese, English and between these two languages are provided.
The remaining can be downloaded through the add-on itself, using the new interface for managing dictionaries.
We are available to add other dictionaries. So if you want to add a dictionary, please contact one of the authors.


## Usage

To start using this add-on , press Control+Shift+F6.
A window will open where we find a list of the dictionaries present on our computer, from which we can choose the one we want to use, and open it with Enter.
We also have a button to access the window where we can manage dictionaries, a button to set the default dictionary, and finally a button to close the add-on , which is also achieved with Escape.

In the Manage Dictionaries window, we have two tabs: Manage and Download.
On the first tab, we can set the order in which the dictionaries appear in the list or delete the selected dictionary.
On the Download tab we can choose the dictionaries we want to download to use.


## Commands
The command to invoke the extra is Control+Shift+F6.
You can also use the command Control+Windows+F6 to access the default dictionary search directly.
Note: If you do not define a default dictionary, the first dictionary in the list will be used.

You can change these commands in the Input gestures  dialog, in the Dictionaries section.


## Auto update

This add-on includes an auto update feature.

Checking for a new version will be performed each time NVDA is loaded.

If you want this to happen, go to the NVDA menu, Preferences, Settings and in the category of the extra check the checkbox.

Re: where is the nvda configuration folder on the computer?

Go to the addons manager. What does it say for Remote Support?

You can type that in the address box or the run dialog and it'll bring
you right there, even if that isn't enabled. I just tested it.
There's also an option in the start menu called Explore NVDA user
configuration directory. Typing explore nvda into the search should get
you there.
The last way to get there is by assigning a gesture to "Opens NVDA
configuration directory for the current user."
I wish that was available somewhere in the NVDA menus, because the
location and steps are completely different to get there for portable
copies.

%APPDATA%\nvda

The %APPDATA% folder is normally hidden in File Explorer.  I do not know whether you can do the direct navigation to it by typing the line above in the address box of File Explorer unless the Control Panel, File Explorer Options, View Tab radio button for /Show hidden files, folders and drives/ is activated.
