Does NVDA run on Windows 10 IoT Enterprise?

Mobeen Iqbal
 

Hello Everyone.

I'm hoping someone can help. I am working on a project which requires an IoT version of windows. The version they're thinking of going for is Windows 10 IoT Enterprise. Does NVDA run on this version of windows? I am not talking about the core version of windows 10 IoT, I'm referring to the standard full version of Windows 10 IoT Enterprise. I'm already aware that windows 10 core enterprise only includes support for WPF apps, so NVDA probably wouldn't run. Or am I wrong? Also whilst I'm writing. does windows 10 enterprise include support for the windows one core voices? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading,
Mo.

Welcome to the NVDA Community Add-ons website - MathCAT #nvdaaddonsfeed

Group Integration <nvda@...>
 

MathCAT

  • Author: Neil Soiffer
  • Download stable version
  • NVDA compatibility: 2018.1 or later (untested in earlier versions)

MathCAT is designed to eventually replace MathPlayer because MathPlayer is no longer supported. MathCAT generates speech and braille from MathML. The speech for math produced by MathCAT is enhanced with prosody so that it sounds more natural. The speech can be navigated in three modes using the same commands as MathPlayer. In addition, the navigation node is indicated on a braille display. Both Nemeth and UEB technical are supported.

MathCAT adds a settings menu to NVDA's preferences menu. In the settings menu, numerous options in MathCAT can be set to control the speech, navigation, and braille.

For full user documentation, please see the MathCAT User Documentation. For information on the MathCAT project in general, see the main MathCAT Documentation page.

Who should use MathCAT:

  • Those who need high quality Nemeth braille (MathPlayer's Nemeth is based on liblouis' Nemeth generation which has a number of significant bugs that are technically difficult to fix).
  • Those who need UEB technical braille
  • Those who want to try out the latest technology and are willing to help by reporting bugs
  • Those who use Eloquence as a voice

Who should NOT use MathCAT:

  • Anyone who uses MathPlayer with a non-English language (translations will be coming in the future)
  • Anyone who uses MathPlayer with a non-Nemeth/non-UEB braille output (contact me if you want to help out with a braille translation)
  • Anyone who uses MathPlayer to read Chemical Formulas (that will hopefully show up in the next non-bug release)
  • Anyone who prefers Access8Math to MathPlayer (for speech or other features)

MathCAT's rules for speech are not yet as extensive as MathPlayer's rules -- that may be another reason to stick with MathPlayer. MathCAT is being used as a testbed for ideas for MathML 4 that allow authors to express their intent so that ambiguous notations can be spoken correctly and not guessed at. I have held off on adding too many rules since the architecture of MathCAT is centered around using and inferring author intent and these are not fully settled yet.

Re: scheduling a recurring Zoom meeting with NVDA

Sarah,
You said you could see all the fields in Zoom with NVDA. What does Zoom give you for calendar options? It gives me Outlook, Google, and Other, but even on other it won't allow me to choose the time. My friend said she set hers up directly with her Google account, and she isn't even asked about which calendar she wants to use.

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.

On 5/31/22, Sarah k Alawami <marrie12@...> wrote:
Odd, I remember seeing this, but at the time I Had a paid account.
Maybe that's the difference?
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.

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.

Re: Auto Numbering in Word and Outlook

 

Somehow on Windows 11 NVDA doesn't seem to read the next numberr when you press enter. I encountered this with a bulletted list too.
In addition, when navigating through the list, I have to use the ctrl+up/down arrow keys twice in order to get NVDA to move to the next list item. Not sure if it's due to UIA being turned on or what.

Re: Add-on suggestion - tone control/EQ for audio output

Kara Goldfinch
 

Yes, that's one of the things I had in mind. I suggested the graphic EQ option for E.G. if someone had difficulty hearing certain frequencies and they could then boost if required. Saying that though, I  expect adjustments lie that would probably be done globally anyway. So just a simple tone control would probably be best.

Subject: [nvda] Add-on suggestion - tone control/EQ for audio output

 

Hi.

I'm not a developer so I'm throwing this idea out there in case anyone fancies making it.

I think it'd be awesome to have a tone control or an EQ for NVDA's audio output. An example of why this would be useful would be if you have your computer connected to a decent pair of speakers or a hi-fi and the TTS engine you're using has way too much bass. With this add-on you could easily fix this by removing the low frequencies, and because it would be  NVDA specific, your music or whatever you're listening to wouldn't be effected. I personally get around this problem by using 2 sound cards, but that isn't always an option particularly over headphones.

It could also work the other way by carving out the high frequencies if you have a speech synth that's too sibilant.

I could see this working in 2 ways. Either as a tone control, So 50% would be neutral, with values higher than that affecting the low frequencies and lower values the high frequencies. Or you could have a graphic EQ so you could boost or cut specific bands to taste like on a hi-fi. You could even offer both and allow the user to switch between each mode.

I'm pretty sure there's open source filters and EQs you could incorporate into the add-on so you wouldn't have to make everything from scratch. It wouldn't even have to be the best thing out there, just something good enough for the job.

Obviously it should not introduce any latency.

Feel free to forward this to the add-ons list.

I said at the top it could be an add-on but having it as standard would be even better.

I'm interested to see what you all think.

 

All the best,

Kara

Re: screen curtain and saving battery

Quentin Christensen
 

Oh my current desktop is very annoying - I need to have the screen on and powered up or the PC won't turn on - it gives a BIOS error and just beeps at me until I turn it on and then back on again (with a monitor running).  When I turn my PC off, the screen will go to sleep, ready to wake back up when it gets a signal again - but when I turn the PC on, it checks for a signal from the monitor before the monitor has a chance to wake up.  So I have to turn the monitor off, then turn the monitor on, then immediately turn the PC on so it checks for a signal while the monitor is on.

Sometimes technology just tries way too hard to be clever!

Windows doesn't offer a general keystroke or function to enable / disable

Windows doesn't offer a way for NVDA to turn off the laptop screen, so we

is not as effective at battery conservation as completely turning the

efficient than say displaying all white would be, so if anything it might

I'm not sure if the addon is supported on the latest version of NVDA.


Some laptops and notebook computers have keyboard shortcuts to toggle the
touchpad. The laptop that I use is a Lenovo Ideapad 330, which has the
keyboard shortcut fns(the function key)+ f6 to toggle the touchpad, however
the touchpad turns back on, as soon as I reboot/boot the computer.

You could find the keyboard shortcut in the user manual, or you could ask
someone to find the key with the touchpad icon on the keyboard.

Hope that helps

As in, this used to work, but, the only real risk is that if something
goes wrong, not sure you can undo this too easily - as in, if something
else on your PC crashed, you might then need to boot into safe mode to
undo the tweak.

Re: Auto Numbering in Word and Outlook

Dear Bob,

When I do the same, NVDA does not say these numbers to me. It's as if they are not there. If I copy the passage to notepad, the numbers are there, after all.

I'm using Office 365, and when I start typing a numbered list, I get numbers. For instance, I just typed the following:
1. This is a test. I hit enter and NVDA said 2. What else are you needing?

Hi folks

Hope everyone is well.

I would like to try my hand at developing for NVDA but I’m not sure where to start.

Some years ago I believe Joseph only created a course on this topic.

Could anyone please point me to link if there is one available please to find the archived information?

Thanks

Warmest wishes

James


Re: screen curtain and saving battery

Quentin Christensen
 

According to https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/nvdacompat.en.html the Input Lock add-on has been updated for NVDA 2022.1 and the latest version should be available from the link previously given.

Windows doesn't offer a general keystroke or function to enable / disable the trackpad - if available, that is generally a function of the driver / laptop.  Similarly to pick up on a point from earlier in the thread, Windows doesn't offer a way for NVDA to turn off the laptop screen, so we have worked around it in the best way we could.  Screen Curtain does what it says on the tin in terms of blacking the screen for privacy, however it is not as effective at battery conservation as completely turning the screen off would be - although effectively displaying all black IS more efficient than say displaying all white would be, so if anything it might help a little.

Re: ARIA: status role

amaan sherani
 

No it is working as far as I know it is working with all the browsers.

I think while applying the Aria-role you would have med any mistake or it could be A different thing.

You just try this in your HTML document and see if it’s work.

Copy the given code:

<div role=”search”>

<input type=”search”>

</div>

 

With best regards

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
