Re: looking for an NVDA trainer in Columbus Georgia

Gene
 

What training does the person want?  Does she want Windows training or does she already know how to do what she wants to do using another screen-reader and only wants to know how to do the same things with NVDA?

Re: Allow Access to Camera/Microphone

I can tell you how to do this in Chrome, but I don't have a site to check with in Firefox.  but I can probably tell you how in Firefox.  I can try search with voice and have the dialog come up in Chrome.  Firefox doesn't support Google's search with voice.  But when I see messages come up in Firefox, I can usually use f6 to move to the dialog.  I can't tell you how many times, but try using f6 a few times and see if you get there.  Then try tabbing to see if you see the buttons.

In Chrome, when the dialog comes up, tab around the buttons and use the space bar on the one you want.

There is probably a keyboard command you can issue usign the alt key + a letter. Might depend on what browser you are using. I regularly connect to google meets with chrome and the alt-key combination is announced as the altert is spoken. Perhaps it's for that reason that I can't recall what it is. But I think ti's alt-a. Anyway, you shouldn't need to tab around, hit f6, or do any of that stuff.

Re: Issue With This Apparently Phantom Item 'Task Switcher' With Recent Updates of NVDA

Hi Tony,

I downloaded and installed this Winaero Tweaker program and I can't seem to make head nor tail of it.  I thought you said it was accessible with NVDA.  Please advise.

I have noticed that with some recent updates of either NVDA or Windows 11 itself, that particularly if I have multiple windows open, I see what I believe is a phantom windows identified with (insert + T) as 'Task Switcher.'  When this happens, it makes navigation more difficult, slows down the response of the computer and causes annoying efficiency issues.

Has anyone else experienced this lately and if so, what could be causing this and is there a solution?  Thanks for any help.

Sorry, I found out the reason.
Because I have set nvda to report indentation, so my nvda will report space blank if the line is containing one space.

I can't help further unless what you are describing is stated very clearly.  When do you hear space blank?  What, exactly, are you doing when you hear it?  You write as though you hear both space and blank spoken when you take the same action.  For example, when you move by character, you hear space blank spoken when you move.  I'm not saying that is what happens, but I don't know what you are describing.  Is that what you are saying and if so, what is the action that causes the behavior?

If it is in Notepad++, it will say space blank.

Sometimes, I am editing a file which was given by a sighted person, and I see that there are lines of spaces but it says blank, so at the first glance, I am confused. But I totally agree that it is like sighted people do not see spaces, so line with only spaces can be regarded as blank.

Hi Group,

I have experienced the following issue with Blank lines and symbols. When I receive a message from audible informing me of books or things I might be interested in, I usually get a first line like 'Audible an Amazon company. Then I press the down arrow key 5 times and hear absolutely nothing. I do not hear blank--but nothing is spoken. When I hit the sixth line, then speech resumes. Sighted people tell me there are strange characters on those 5 lines--some kind of ASCII art for appearance sake.

I wonder if this is what some people are experiencing.

Pauses in MS-Word

Ralph Boersema
 

Dear Friends,

 

I do not usually keep up with this list, so please forgive me if this matter has been dealt with recently. When I work with Word documents NVDA frequently pauses before reading something to me. The pause frequency and the length of the pauses increase as the documents get longer. I have had this problem for years and with different versions of Word and of NVDA. Currently I am using Microsoft 365 and my NVDA is up to date. Is there some configuration I need to change, either in Word or in NVDA?

 

Warmly,

Ralph

Actually, it’s Windows+Control+Enter, not N.

 

All the best

Why not just do it through narrator? 1. Open Narrator Settings by pressing the Windows logo key + Ctrl + N.

2. Tab to Personalize Narrator's voice, tab once more to and select Add more voices. ...

3. Under Manage voices, select Add voices.

4. Select the language you would like to install voices for and select Add.

More items...

You’ve got UK, U.S., Canada and Ireland you can choose from.

Hi Chris

 

Thank you, Chris.

 

I have got it, but I cannot understand why I do not find English

United Kingdom even after typing in the edit box.

 

If a voice doesn't show in the list, how does one get it?

 

Thanking you in advance for your help.

I don't know, but personally I have found it pretty successful to scan QR codes on my computer screen with my iPhone.

The camera doesn't have to be positioned exactly, and just moving it around slowly with the built-in code scanner running, usually works. That assumes you can use either the built-in code scanner, or can use one in whatever app you're running that is constant pick-up, not point-and-snapshot.

Btw your best bet would be the chat group. Go to the sub groups for nvda group on groups.io and look for the heading labeled sub groups, if they did make that public. If not, search for the nvda chat group on groups.io.

Nope. I can do it only because I have a very good phone, I just point my phone at the screen and it just works. If you have something like an iPhone 8 or older, you can do it but you will have issues.
