Re: [Solved] Problem with Bluetooth clipping words

Hello,

If you are using a Bluetooth headset, then your computer is turning off its sound card to save power whenever there is a pause. If you are not using a Bluetooth headset, then that is another issue.

Subject: [nvda] reading line by line and missing words

This has been happening for some time and I cannot remember when it started but hope someone can help if I can explain it clear enough.


There are times when I read line by line with the arrow keys if I am
looking for a particular word or phrase in an article or email. For some
time now, and I think it started happening after the latest update of
NVDA--not the beta one that is being worked on as I have not taken that
one--that when going line by line it misses words at the beginning of a
line. If I do "read all" it does fine but it is only when I am arrowing
down or up in the file. Does anyone have any idea what setting may have
changed? I know sometimes my screen flips direction but that has not
made a difference in the past.


Thanks so much for any ideas you can offer.

Input Gestures Pane/Dialog - I'm drawing a blank with regard to tweaking a keyboard shortcut I've previously created

 

Hello All,

. . . and not with regard to opening it (NVDA+N,P,N).  I quickly reacquainted myself with right arrowing to expand a given item, in this case Easy Table Navigator (but that's not really important), going through the related items beneath with up/down arrow, but when it comes to the item I want to change, I don't seem to be able to get it to open unless I'm using the mouse to click on it.

In this case I was trying to change the Keyboard Shortcut that toggles the Easy Table Navigator layer that allows you to use arrow keys to move through tables on/off.  I had initially changed it to CTRL+E and quickly realized that I didn't want to keep that.

Once I'm down at the level in the Input Gestures where I'm under Easy Table Navigator, and I'm sitting on the entry that's read, "Level 2, Ctrl+E, (keyboard, all layouts)," what do I hit to open that and change it?  Or is this a circumstance where I must select it, activate the remove button, then add it back again?  I thought you could edit these, but perhaps I'm not remembering correctly.

Re: NVDA announcing "Unknown"

Rosemarie Chavarria
 

Hi, Anthony,

 

Do you know how to runthe com registration tool? I’ve had to do that whenever I heard “unknown”. You’ll find the com registration tool in the NVDA menu under “tools”.

 

Hope this helps.

Can somebody explain to me that everytime when the NVDA screen reader is loaded, it keeps announcing the word unknown. Even when I use firefox.

Thanks in advance

What's perversely funny is that the OneCore voice, Microsoft David, pronounces these letter sequences as actual letter sequences, not as US state names.  I actually wasn't expecting that to be the case with an American English synth.

Re: Correcting speech pattern

 

Patrick is absolutely correct that this is a function of the synthesizer(s) in use rather than NVDA itself.  When faced with an unpronounceable sequence like FL10 (F L 1 0) it's got to "take a guess" and since FL is a state abbreviation it makes at least some sense to try "Florida ten."  In the case of NV-Access or NV Access it makes perfect sense to "guess" that NV would be Nevada.

The NV-Access or NV Access case is easy enough as far as a regex match with substitution.  FL10 would not probably require a regex, but that really depends on exactly what it is you're trying to change and how many variants on the pronunciation you need.

Re: Correcting speech pattern

Patrick Le Baudour
 

Hi,

Unfortunately, it is not a feature of nvda but one specific to the engine/voice, thus there is no simple way to avoid that kind of things altogether.
It should be possible to use the dictionary to replace them one by one, maybe even to find one regexp to fit them all, but to be honest that seems a lot of work for a limited improvement.

Hi Luke

I don't know if you're a vs code user but it should be possible if you

I don't know the details of the accessibility with this approach but I would assume since most of the Microsoft apps are accessible to nvda it should be a good option

Quickstart: Use Visual Studio Code to connect and query
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-sql/database/connect-query-vscode

I would be interested in learning which approach you find the most productive and accessible :-)

Luis, I'm glad you made contact with me through email.

Our Spanish work has been suspended for a while now.  We are looking for a good reason to resume.

Below is a link to a short mp3. It is an example of our initial experiment. It is a European, Madrid-area accent.  It should be easy to move to Lat-Am accents. But, I have been told that a cecero accent is helpful to blind Latin-Americans for making clear the spelling of words.

Hi Daniel, 

In case you don't hear back from the NVDA team soon, can I ask:  Have you looked at the affiliation of the authors of each of those E-speak NG voices?  I think for the most part that those authors may be unaware of NVDA's existence.  Any phonetic issues are the responsibility of the e-speak maintainers and not, I would  suggest, within  NVDA's purview.

And coming back to RHVoice. Do you prefer robotic voices because they can be played at speed?  HTS voices are playable at high speed intelligibly too.
