Cearbhall,

          There are *lots* of online resources for regular expressions, but if you can lay your hands on the O'Reilly [publisher of "all things Unix"] book entitled Mastering Regular Expressions by Jeffrey E. F. Friedl that would not be a bad place to start.  Here are three different cheat sheets that I found helpful when I was trying to refresh my memory about how these things work.  One of the trickiest concepts is that you can have a regular expression match zero or more occurrences of a given character, which seems very odd, but if you think about how time is conventionally written out in many instances, there is no leading zero before 10 AM (or PM) and the one may or may not be there in any given instance of the time, so you need to be able to match zero or more occurrences of the digit 1 at the start.

           I have to warn you that it generally takes a bit of time to wrap one's head around regular expression syntax.  The nice thing is that there are websites that allow you to test the regular expression you've put together against a pattern to see if it will match it and even some that will allow you to specify a replace option so that you can see precisely what you'd get as a replacement by piecing together bits of the original string in different order, with different separators, etc.  Here is the site that I preferred for that purpose:

Re: NVDA and Fractions

 

A very late PS on that regular expression I posted for capturing the time on Windows to make it pronounce correctly.  In my original I had the literal character space between the last digit and the A or P in AM or PM which does work for Windows system time.  But, if someone formatted time with more than one space, or a tab, or the like between the last digit and the A or P the AM/PM part would not be captured correctly.  The corrected regular expression uses the \s special character with the + quantifier to say any one or more occurrences of any of the "white space" characters.

([1]*[0-9]+)(.)([0-5]{1}[0-9]{1})\s+([a,A,p,P][m,M])

and use the following as the replacement expression:  \1 \3 \4

Dear Folks,

I admit that I don't regularly read these list messages and, therefore,
probably missed reading an earlier exchange about this topic. I have just
updated to Office 2016 and find that in Outlook NVDA does not read to me
whether a message is marked as read or unread. Is there some setting I need

There are a lot of sites which promise to teach you - some of the rely on colour for various things and I must confess I haven't used any of them lately to know what they are like.  If you do a search for "Regular expression tutorial" you should get heaps of results.  In the meantime, the Wikipedia page goes probably too far into explanation of what it is, but does have some examples: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_expression

This looks like an important skill particularly with the rise of text to speech delivery of eBooks! BorrowBox have just brought out theirs and it uses the regular API voices. For example the word reach is being pronounced as ree, akt to give you an idea of the mispronunciation.

Quentin,

        Thanks.  I agree that it's bizarre that Microsoft decided to use the ratio symbol in time.  It actually looks like a colon set slightly lower than center, but it's not something I would ever have thought of, nor thought it was not a colon, until you mentioned this.

         I also confirmed that my regular expression and replacement make NVDA stop saying "ratio" as part of time (at least when I have it written out in a MS-Word document using the ratio symbol as the separator).  But since AM and PM are read as on would expect one can simplify the regular expression to:

([1]*[0-9]+)(.)([0-5]{1}[0-9]{1}) ([a,A,p,P][m,M])

and the replacement expression to:  \1 \3 \4

since there's no need to separate the A or P from the M to get things announced as one would expect.

It's been some years since I had to use regular expressions with any regularity but they're somewhat like riding a bicycle in that once you've done that you can pick it up again pretty much anytime later on.

Hi guys


A while back i emailed the list about problems that I was having with a
persons computer running windows 10. What it was doing was in mozilla
fire fox you could not use single letter navigation keys, tab or any
thing. You could not even get into the menus up the top when the alt key
was used. It was unusable with mozilla fire fox. NVDA kept on saying
unknown. Browse and focus mode did not work either.

There was some other problems but that saying unknown was the main ones.

Also when you went into mozilla thunderbird, it would open, but when you
went to use the tab key to get to the tree view it would say unknown
etc, You could not even get into your emails and or access the menus up
the top. Also unusable.


The above problem is now fixed.


The steps were.

I thought it was nvda having a corrupted nvda.ini file.

So nvda was reset to factory defaults. That did not fix the problem.
NVDA was completely removed all together and also the references to nvda
under the %appdata% section referring to nvda. This was deleted.NVDA was
then reinstalled and then tested it again. I still had the same problem
with nvda saying unknown both in fire fox and mozilla thunder bird.

Next mozilla fire fox was uninstalled from the pc.

I then went into the %appdata% area and found a folder referring to
mozilla and had a look inside of it..

I ended up deleting the settings file, then decided to delete the folder
for mozilla all together.
i then closed out of it then decided to see if it made any difference in
thunderbird. This time I was able to tab through to where my folders
were in the treeview, go into them read my messages etc.
I can not remember if i had to reboot or to clear the cache.
So the problem is fixed now and then i reinstalled mozilla fire fox and
set it up.

Mozilla fire fox is now working correctly i can use single letter
navigation keys etc even access the menus. What I did when i reinstalled
it was grab the latest version of it as I noticed when the other one was
uninstalled it was version 47.

So both are running correctly i can access the menus in both programs
and use them like normal.

I have seen in the last day or couple of days a similar problem on the
list with nvda saying unknown multiple times in fire fox.

so if you had the same sort of problems as mentioned above with mozilla
fire fox and thunder bird, this is how i fixed it.
Maybe it might help someone else.

Hello All,

On the JFW group a thread has started entitled, How to insert a 1-digit
fraction into a 2013 word document (
https://jfw.groups.io/g/main/topic/how_to_insert_a_1_digit/2911704?p=,,,100,0,0,0::RecentPostDate%2FSticky,,,100,2,0,2911704 )

I started playing with NVDA and Window-Eyes to see how they'd handle
three-character fraction designations versus single vulgar fraction
characters for vulgar fractions other than one fourth, one half, and three
quarters. With NVDA I've run into an interesting issue that I cannot seem to
fix in the context of writing something incredibly common: a recipe.
Virtually any recipe you name might contain a fraction of a cup of
something. When I use one slash three for one third, or two slash three for
two thirds, the word cup that follows it is consistently announced as Cuban
Pesos, not cup. This is not true when I use a vulgar fraction character
ahead of the word cup, and NVDA does what I consider the more natural thing
and doesn't announce "vulgar" or "vulgar fraction" followed by one third or
two thirds, but just says the fractional amount and the word cup gets said
as cup.

I have tried tweaking the default and voice dictionaries, but must be doing
something wrong. The pattern I'm using is the word cup, and the replacement
is the word cup, and I make sure that it's set for whole word only. Even
after doing this I still get "Cuban pesos" after the three-character version
of a vulgar fraction. I have exited NVDA and restarted it and it makes no
difference.

I either don't have the format down correctly for what I need to put in for
the dictionary, have the wrong dictionary, or there's some sort of bug here
as I can't imagine "Cuban pesos" to be something you'd want said for "cup"
except in the very rarest of circumstances.

Can anyone help me out here?

Well its supposed to do so. It kept mine, but in the past, just occasionally, it has reverted to something else. When I asked about this nobody could duplicate it, but I fancy its more likely that the original settings file was slightly corrupted in some way and parts of it were not readable at install time and hence the default settings got put in though at least let you hear what was going on. Strangely this seems to affect portable versions more often than installed ones. If you have ever had a faulty install and tried again I know this can leave things a bit strange in the .ini files.
If its a serious problem all the time, it might be worth reporting it.

This last update to 2016.3 did not keep my speech settings and I had to go
in and reset them.

John,

Someone else who uses a Braille display will have to absolutely
confirm with regard to that. My experience with upgrading NVDA from release
to release using the internal update feature or installing release candidate
software has kept all of my settings preserved as well as all the add-ons
I've installed. This is common practice now and the only deviation I
commonly see from it is the inclusion of a specific question during certain
installs where a question is asked as to whether you'd like to do a clean
install and telling you this resets everything back to "out of the box"
condition. NVDA has never presented me with one of these and has always
carried my settings forward.
