Hi gene

I have tried many times to download it today but I cannot find the URL.

Evry time I tried to save it it used to be saved as html file name.
and not the mp3.

I hope you will be able to understand what I mean.

Thanks in advance

If you had gone to the page where the podcast is and followed my
instructions, you could have sent this address:

https://www.ncbi.ie/technology-podcast-episode-70-march-2018/



I don't know what you see with Internet Explorer. With Firefox, there
is an item that says something like Media Player and on the line below
is the word application. If I press enter on the word "application" a
web player comes up with a slider and buttons such as play I can tab
to. If I press enter on play, the file plays.



You said initially that the file plays in Windows Media Player. I don't
know what happens in Internet Explorer. In modern browsers, that doesn't
happen. The file is played in a player and there is no link to the file,
just a button to play the file.

The recorder is a portable version. Extract the zip files, and then, when
you are in the folder where the files of the program are, find the virtual
recorder.exe file and press enter on it. When you open the folder, typing
the letter v once will take you to the file.



When the program opens, tab around to the field with the word "device as
the
description. Up and down arrow until you find the what you hear option.
That is the setting you want. It will be remembered so you don't have to
set it again when you open the program. You will see obvious buttons such
as reccord. Use the space bar on the buttons. The file you are recording
is in the folder where the program files are. I believe it is named
recording.mp3. Be sure to move the file where you want it after you record
it and tchange the name either before or after moving. You can't listen to
the file using the program. You can play the file in any player that can
play MP3 files. You can't edit with the program either. If you want to
edit, you will have to use a different program. But this is a very simple
program that will record anything you hear when your sound card plays.



You can download the zip file by following this link:

http://opopanax.net/download/Virtual_Recorder_Portable.zip

And the next time you want to keep something, you won't know how. I would
advise getting the very simple program I discussed here, virtual recorder,
and trying it. There is a specific version I would advise using. I'll
send
information if you ask.



and if you ever are corresponding with someone and want to send them a link
to an article, a product, or whatever the case, you evidently won't know
how. This is a fundamental Internet skill. I'm not particularly concerned
with you saving this particular podcast unless you are, but there are
certain skills and knowledge you are not learning as a result of no longer
pursuing the matter. The Internet address copy and paste knowledge is
important in general. Recording using a program like Virtual Recorder is
important if you want to record material that can't be saved.

The problem is that we don't know what you are trying to download, and the
instructions for how to download it may be different depending on what it
is.

Show us a URL for the podcast, or at least for a page containing a link to
it, and we can take a look for ourselves to try and help you.

Until you show us the specific thing you want to download, we're just
guessing at the best way to do it, and that's both inefficient and
potentially unhelpful.

The page you sent the address for is the page that gives a little information about the podcasts you can listen to.  there is a link on the page below the navigation links that says,

TECHNOLOGY PODCAST EPISODE 70: MARCH 2018

If you follow that link, you will find further description about what the podcast consists of, and an item that says something like audio player, application.  Application may be on the line below the line that says audio player.

If you press enter on application, the player will open and you can tab to a play button.  Press enter on the play button.

 

If Internet Explorer doesn't support the player, you may not see any of this,  In that case, you will have to use a different browser.

 

You will also notice, on the page you gave a link to, a link below the brief excerpt of what the podcast is about that says something like read more.  The link goes to exactly the same page as the link I told you about earlier. Web sites often have repetitions like this.

I prefer the portable version because it can be transferred from machine to machine if desired without installing and with the settings kept.  All you have to do is copy the folder onto another machine.

The recorder is a portable version.  Extract the zip files, and then, when you are in the folder where the files of the program are, find the virtual recorder.exe file and press enter on it.  When you open the folder, typing the letter v once will take you to the file.

 

When the program opens, tab around to the field with the word "device as the description.  Up and down arrow until you find the what you hear option.  That is the setting you want.  It will be remembered so you don't have to set it again when you open the program.  You will see obvious buttons such as reccord.  Use the space bar on the buttons.  The file you are recording is in the folder where the program files are.  I believe it is named recording.mp3.  Be sure to move the file where you want it after you record it and tchange the name either before or after moving.  You can't listen to the file using the program.  You can play the file in any player that can play MP3 files.  You can't edit with the program either.  If you want to edit, you will have to use a different program.  But this is a very simple program that will record anything you hear when your sound card plays.

 

You can download the zip file by following this link:

And the next time you want to keep something, you won't know how.  I would advise getting the very simple program I discussed here, virtual recorder, and trying it.  There is a specific version I would advise using.  I'll send information if you ask. 

 

and if you ever are corresponding with someone and want to send them a link to an article, a product, or whatever the case, you evidently won't know how.  This is a fundamental Internet skill.  I'm not particularly concerned with you saving this particular podcast unless you are, but there are certain skills and knowledge you are not learning as a result of no longer pursuing the matter.  The Internet address copy and paste knowledge is important in general.  Recording using a program like Virtual Recorder is important if you want to record material that can't be saved.

The problem is that we don't know what you are trying to download, and the
instructions for how to download it may be different depending on what it
is.

Show us a URL for the podcast, or at least for a page containing a link to
it, and we can take a look for ourselves to try and help you.

Until you show us the specific thing you want to download, we're just
guessing at the best way to do it, and that's both inefficient and
potentially unhelpful.

I have not read all this  thread but here is a link to download the podcast.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/7nvtyuhzec7ik6l/podcast_march_2018.mp3?dl=1

 

All I did was bring up the application menu in Waterfox. Then selected view page source.

Then I pressed control NVDA plus F and search for the phrase mp3.

I copied the address string with mp3 in it and pasted it into the address bar of Waterfox.

This started the Podcast playing.

I then presse control S which saved the Podcast Mp3 to my downloads folder.

If that really is the site Anthony's talking about (I await his confirmation), then there are MP3 URLs embedded in the source code of the podcast pages, and those URLs can be downloaded as offline-playable MP3s.

 

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a standard pattern for converting a podcast page URL to the corresponding MP3 download URL, but it's certainly possible to download the podcasts.

 

I found the URLs by starting from a page with the player on it, pressing the Windows Context key (without any link focused) and then selecting "View Page Info" from the context menu which appears.  If you then move one icon to the right (from "General" to "Media"), you get a list of all the media links on the page, and one of them is the downloadable MP3.

 

 

I hope that helps,

 

 

Antony.

Evening, or at least here in New England it is.

I have been using Abby FineReader for years. It is my original version 11 and it is running well under Windows 10. Right now my scanner is part of my Cannon printer, and though a one page at a time model, it serves very well. Abby is remarkably accurate and will scan to a wide variety of formats including Word, Excel and Epic.

One of the little things I like about it is that when installed, it adds itself to the context menu. Find a PDF file , hit the context key, arrow down to Abby and press the right arrow to view the options of formats you can convert to. Press the enter key and Abby opens and converts the file and then opens it in the correct app.

The only change I would make right now is to move to a scanner with a document feeder. I am also serious about moving up several generations of Abby.

Honestly I owe Abby the purchase of a newer version. Over the years with several major crashes, support has been quick and clear and restoration was very simple.

Good luck finding a solution that works, does not require fifty key presses and most important does not cost too much. I am a firm believer in an application that does a single job, but does it very well.

As for OCR on an iPad, if you have not tried Seeing AI, it is quite  a program, with a variety of  functions and if is free on the Appstore. Interestingly it was developed and is well maintained by Microsoft.

I've personally used Omnipage and Abbyy in the past, and also had a scanner with an OCR plugin for Word that worked well, even though the main software wasn't great, but I haven't looked at anything recently to recommend.

Re: Scanner / OCR recommendation

It seems that you are willing to pay a little. And in my opinion Abbyy Finereader is the best and easyest. The advantage with it, is that you do not nead to opend the main aplication. you are able to emedyatly scan in to pdf or word and the prosess is very ssimple.  haven't try dolphin, howevr i am quite shure that all of those you mantion is accessible. it is more the taste and what you prefer.

Re: NvDA not working with some websites in latest chrome

Christo de Klerk
 

There are some websites on which NVDA does reliably not work with Chrome. I say "reliably", because it is absolutely always the case. A case in point is when you need a synopsis and reviews of a book on the Goodreads website. NVDA gets stuck on a line and you cannot budge from it, not in Object review mode, not in Document review and not in Screen review; not after an NVDA startup. You simply have no access to the information. But in Firefox the information is shown without any problem like there is nothing special about it. This issue is going to make me return to Firefox as my default browser. For a while I have been using Chrome and it definitely is faster than the Fox, but it really is a bother if it doesn't give me the information another browser can. I would then rather put up with the Fox being a bit slower.

Subject: [nvda] NvDA not working with some websites in latest chrome


Hello
If I go to paypal.com with latest NVDA and also the firefox download site does the same thing, nvda2018.1 rc1. It briefly shows the links and stuff and then when I arrow up and down, it just gets stuck on send money, no links, no nothing. Is there something wrong with chrome and the latest nvda? Also same thing with firefox. I had to use edge to get the latest firefox because chrome got stuck on the download firefox words, no links showed on the site. They show for a very brief time then disappear. What could be going on?

Re: Scanner / OCR recommendation

 

What do you want to pay.

Abbyy fine reader is cheapish, 200-300 bucks australian, its reasonably accessible.

Omnipage is more expensive and aparently you need jaws to use it it aparently can crash a lot and has a lot of unwanted stuff but its all from user heresay.

I am unsure about dolphin but if you have the cash for dolphin products, there is open book by vfo or my favorite which I like k1000 which I used while at university pirated as it was.

If I had the cash I'd buy the entire kit it was that good but I don't have 3000 bucks which was why I originally cracked it.

But I was getting closed to actually buying it outright for myself.

Now if the price dropped to something like omnipage maybe 800 bucks I'd buy it maybe.

HI.


You remind me here that I have been interested in this program for some time.


You say you are using an older version (11). What do you know about the current available versions? Perhaps, from an accessibility standpoint, specifically. I suppose if I were to buy the program, I would be getting the latest version, so before that happens, I’d want to make sure it works as well as yours does, you know?

Evening, or at least here in New England it is.

I have been using Abby FineReader for years. It is my original version 11 and it is running well under Windows 10. Right now my scanner is part of my Cannon printer, and though a one page at a time model, it serves very well. Abby is remarkably accurate and will scan to a wide variety of formats including Word, Excel and Epic.


One of the little things I like about it is that when installed, it adds itself to the context menu. Find a PDF file , hit the context key, arrow down to Abby and press the right arrow to view the options of formats you can convert to. Press the enter key and Abby opens and converts the file and then opens it in the correct app.

The only change I would make right now is to move to a scanner with a document feeder. I am also serious about moving up several generations of Abby.

Honestly I owe Abby the purchase of a newer version. Over the years with several major crashes, support has been quick and clear and restoration was very simple.

Good luck finding a solution that works, does not require fifty key presses and most important does not cost too much. I am a firm believer in an application that does a single job, but does it very well.


As for OCR on an iPad, if you have not tried Seeing AI, it is quite a program, with a variety of functions and if is free on the Appstore. Interestingly it was developed and is well maintained by Microsoft.


Disclaimer here: I do not work for Abby nor do I sell any of their products. Feel free to contact me off list if I can be of help, or just ask questions here.

I've personally used Omnipage and Abbyy in the past, and also had a scanner with an OCR plugin for Word that worked well, even though the main software wasn't great, but I haven't looked at anything recently to recommend.

Re: scanner recommendation

Hi All,

I use the HP8715 Pro combined printer/scanner with a document feeder.  It comes with its own scanning software and its saves documents in Image PDF, RTF documents, and JPEG or TIF.  It can be setup as a wireless printer/scanner.  It also works with the HP instant ink program which costs $3 per month for 50 pages.  Options for more pages per month are available.  I had it for more than a year and I like it very much. 

Blessings

If you want to use it to check whether keys are working or find out what keys are on a new keyboard, press NVDA+1 (number row 1) to turn input help on.  Then it will read every key you press without doing anything, so you can test what different keys are or whether they work.

 

Once finished, press NVDA+1 again to turn input help off.

Re speak command keys, you can also toggle this with NVDA+4 (again 4 on the number row).

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

NVDA not seeing checkbox

Don H
 

Running Windows 10 latest version with all updates, NVDA 2018 RC1 and latest version of Google.
When I go to a web site that is behind my user name and password, thus I can't give you the web address to try, There is a checkbox to get the site to recognize your computer to avoid further security measures. This checkbox is passed over by NVDA. Jaws 2018 reads it just fine. Is there a way to get NVDA not to pass over the checkbox?
Thanks
