Re: New Thunderbird Version 102.0 Issues

On considering this further, from what you say, NVDA doesn't go into browse mode automatically when you tab away from the search field.  But if anyone is either on the main list or in a list of search results and you can't move properly through the list, turn off browse mode and you will be able to do so.

I'm running Thunderbird Portable so I updated an old version and tried working with the add-on in the newly updated version.  The add-on worked, even though I hadn't done what I did in the address book in the version I updated earlier.

I hope others discuss whether the add-on works if they update.  I don't know if the add-on generally works or not and if people are going to ask that it be modified to work with the new version, we need to know if the modification is necessary.

MESSAGE HEADER REDESIGN
Thunderbird 102 helps you be more productive with less effort. When reading your email, the redesigned message header allows you to focus on what matters as it highlights important information. It’s also more responsive and easier to navigate. Plus, you can star important messages from the message header itself, and easily convert them into a calendar event or a task.
NEW ADDRESS BOOK
Thunderbird 102 gives your contacts a serious upgrade! The refreshed design makes it easier to navigate and interact with your contacts, and helps you better understand who you’re communicating with. The new Address Book has compatibility with vCard specs, meaning if your app can export your existing contacts into vCard format, Thunderbird can import them. Each contact card also acts as a launchpad for messaging, email, and event creation.

NEW IMPORT/EXPORT WIZARD
Thunderbird 102 makes it quick and simple to move your accounts and data around. The new step-by-step wizard provides a guided experience for importing all that data that’s important to you. We’ve also taken extra precautions to ensure that no data is accidentally duplicated in your profile after an import. Moving from Outlook, SeaMonkey, or another Thunderbird installation is easier than ever. No add-ons required!
NEW SPACES TOOLBAR
Thunderbird 102 makes navigating the application more intuitive thanks to the the new Spaces Toolbar. Move between all of your activities with ease, whether it’s managing email, working with contacts through the awesome new address book, using the calendar and tasks functionality, chat, and even add-ons! If you want to save screen real estate, the Spaces Toolbar can be dismissed, and you can instead navigate the different activities Thunderbird offers with the new Pinned Spaces tab.

Re: New Thunderbird Version 102.0 Issues

I don't have NVDA set to automatically go into focus mode but if you do, from what you say, it automatically does when you open the address book and are on the search all address book field.  Your description is correct if you have NVDA set to work that way. 

If you tab around, you will find a search button and pressing it evidently only searches one address book.  I was originally playing with that option but the search you are discussing is faster to use.

If someone wants to move through the actual list of addresses, however, you may have to go into focus mode because NVDA may go into browse mode when you tab out of the search field you are discussing. 

I think it is faster and easier to use autocomplete and not take time to go into the address book at all and to move from a search field to a list of results.

It seems peculiar to me that we have people in Mozillas Firefox teem falling over themselves to fix inaccessible issues, yet Tbird seems to go through these strange change stuff cos we can periods every so often. If there is a link to an old copy of the known to work portable version it needs to be on a web site somewhere. I will have to abandon OE soon, but Outlook does not do Newsgroups, but Tbird still does.

Re: alphanumeric strings as phonetics?

Brian's Mail list account
 

Could it just be looking at words with caps inside the word other than at the start?

I'd still expect a lag though, unless it had already built up an index of such things in the document being read first which would delay the start of reading.
Goodness knows what it would make of nvda Python logs and code then! Grin

So, if I'm understanding you correctly, you want NVDA to detect that it has an unpronounceable alphanumeric string when it's doing a say all and, when such is encountered, say it phonetically?



Yes. That would be ideal.


It's not that something like this couldn't be done, but it does require quite a bit of overhead as each "word" would need to be analyzed as to whether it was an alphanumeric string in realtime, which is a non-trivial and resource intensive task (relatively speaking) since there is no way to predict where such might occur in a text. Does the JAWS feature do this during a Say All?



Yep, I just tried it.


Re: A weird case that kills NVDA

Brian's Mail list account
 

I've noticed in more than one mail client some synths do stop working when you find somebody has made the from or subject line look the same but used some oddball selection of character set which you can often see by looking at the headers of the message.
Sounds like a bug in the synth to me, as most may say junk or go silent on the word but then come back again. I imagine spammers do it to try to get around filters looking for specific strings to identify spam, which is of course what you did, but do be careful, since congrat could be part of a work in a wanted message. Also the person sending such stuff will, I have no doubt find another word to use to get his or her spam though.

I am using the SAPI version of Vocalizer, the South African English voice, Tessa. Yes, it is quite possible that Tessa is getting choked up, not NVDA as such. I'll give your suggestion a go some time.

I don't know why having the string in that particular place causes a problem. Perhaps there are no spaces and when you write it elsewhere, you have spaces before and after it. What synthesizer are you using? It is most likely that the string causes the synthesizer to crash. If you are curious enough, you can disable the rule and look at a message using a different synthesizer.

Hello all




Here is some weirdness that I will try to describe in some detail. When this happens, it kills speech from NVDA, but the computer is not frozen. If you give the Ctrl+Alt+n command, you hear the NVDA startup sound and it comes back. You do not get the NVDA shutdown sound. Here is what seems to be the cause and how I worked around it:




I am using Thunderbird as my email client. The columns in my inbox are set up to show attachments first (if any), followed by From, followed by Subject. As I have been doing email, every now and then I lost all speech and had to restart NVDA, just for it to die again when I got to a particular message. I used Narrator to figure out what the offending message header was and saw that in the From column,it showed "_Congrat_" and nothing in the Subject column, obviously some spam or malware kind of message. I then set up a rule to scan for the string "-Congrat" in the From, To, or Subject fields and to delete such a message. That seems to have worked around the problem.




I have no idea why this causes NVDA to go quiet on me, because having the offending text string in my message does not have any negative effect.




Kind regards




Christo

Gene
 

Here is more information:
It appears what I did working with the address book had no bearing on the add-on working.

I'm running Thunderbird Portable so I updated an old version and tried working with the add-on in the newly updated version.  The add-on worked, even though I hadn't done what I did in the address book in the version I updated earlier.

I hope others discuss whether the add-on works if they update.  I don't know if the add-on generally works or not and if people are going to ask that it be modified to work with the new version, we need to know if the modification is necessary.

Re: New Thunderbird Version 102.0 Issues

I just wrote different things in the search dialog, tabbed to the list, and down arrowed through the results.  I don't see why playing with the address book would cause any change and I don't know if it did.

You could try maximizing the window or normalizing it, whatever is the opposite of what it is now, but I didn't do that.

Re: The blog portion of this site changes to British English

If you mean on the site, I don't know if the language and dialect setting used is correct.

Now, go to this site:

Press "h" and start reading from there. While the voice doesn't change from American English, the dialect seems to change. When I uncheck language switching and close the settings window, everything is okay. The British accent is annoying to me. Is there a way to stop this from happening? I hope this is clear.

Re: Less Verbosity In Task Manager?

 

NVDA Announcements for things like "grouping" CanNot be Turned off.
If the interface actually has a list called "list of items:"
you'll hear that exactly as soon as you Tab to/AltKey the control's command.
"Fewer/More Details" changes what is shown in the interface,
and Even what NVDA May speak.

Re: New Thunderbird Version 102.0 Issues

Good reasons not to update.  I really don't see the need to keep the program current if you are just using e-mail and don't care about possible new features.

I'll be curious to see the new setup.  I have a copy of Thunderbird Portable I keep current to keep up with any problems or changes I find in the program but for general use, I don't use the current version.

I keep one copy current out of curiosity and so I might be of help if people ask about problems.

Hi Group,

The new Thunderbird version 102.0 has some issues. the address book is configured and different. It is similar to but not exactly like a web page. for best results in navigating it, turn off virtual cursor and then use tab key to get to the list of your addresses.  first letter navigation does not work as it did in the past in the address book, so you will have to use the search field which now appears in the tab order of the items in the address book. Type the first few letters of an address you want to highlight and then tab to the list and you will land on or near the proper address. Use up and down arrow keys if you don't land exactly on the desired address. This isn't to dissimilar to the way preferences were changed to be more like a web page a few years ago in Thunderbird. it takes some getting used to but is quite usable once you understand what is happening.

In addition, the Mozilla apps enhancement feature for Thunderbird is broken.  I hope the developers will be able to fix this add-on so it works as it did in the previous versions.  We should all send them e-mails to make them aware of the issues and desirability for a fix.

Re: alphanumeric strings as phonetics?

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

A simple way of describing this is indeed to have 'spell alpha-numeric expressions phonetically' active during screen reader 'say all' reading.  Here's an example. 

Say I have the following sentence in 'say all.' mode.
I just had a conversation with Robert smith WA2PDQ on the forty meter ham band. 
With 'spell alpha-numeric expression phonetically' turned on in JAWS, this sentence would be rendered in 'say all' mode as follows:
I just had a conversation with Robert smith Whiskey Alpha 2 Papa Delta Quebec on the forty meter ham band. 

This would be a nice feature if it could be implemented in NVDA.

So, if I'm understanding you correctly, you want NVDA to detect that it has an unpronounceable alphanumeric string when it's doing a say all and, when such is encountered, say it phonetically?

It's not that something like this couldn't be done, but it does require quite a bit of overhead as each "word" would need to be analyzed as to whether it was an alphanumeric string in realtime, which is a non-trivial and resource intensive task (relatively speaking) since there is no way to predict where such might occur in a text.  Does the JAWS feature do this during a Say All?

And I did just play with the Enhanced Phonetic Reading add-on and if I use the NVDA + CTRL + NumPad 2 command I can toggle instant reading of each character phonetically and have it skip the regular announcement of the letter itself.  So, provided I'm going letter by letter, I get “Lima, 9, golf, 3, Sierra, 6” for L9G3S6.

Yep I listen to nvda at close to 100, or at least I’m retraining my ear. And for me I don’t really find alpha bravo etc hard.

I don’t find it hard to understand, and I listen to Eloquence at about 70%.

With the feature turned on and set to phonetics, it says each word as if there is a comma after it. So, for example, L9G3S6 will be read as “Lima, 9, golf, 3, Sierra, 6”.

Yes. That would be ideal.

Yep, I just tried it.
