Re: Silence is golden

Brandon Cross <bcross3286@...>
 

Well as a personal preference, I'd like to reduce the length of pauses in some synths, but I think its more down to the way the manufacturer of the synth programmed in the pauses rather than what NVDA's doing with it. I suppose an addon could be written that parses text for double punctuation, up to say 5 of each, then splits the string up that it sends to output. That isn't me however, I am not good at coding.

One thing I do wish, however, is that the concatinative synths like Acapela, Vocalizer and the like would offer user control over pauses. The reason being is its one of the things that stops me from using them as my main voice. We've gotten response times down to acceptable levels, its just pauses, I don't want a second in between sentences, or half of one for a comma. That just breaks up the flow too much for me, I like a little bit of pause, but not to that extent.

Hi all, I wonder if anyone has any ideas on something NVDA users probably don't need to do very often. I'd like to be able to get a little bit more control over the amount of pause time that is produced by punctuation symbols.

I know a commas, semicolons and periods / full stops pause a program-controlled amount, but if I want to pause for the time of two adjacent full stops, could that be achieved in any way?

When I try the following test sentences:
This is a test sentence. It uses one full stop.
This is another test sentence. . It uses two full stops.

Sentence 1 gives me the default pause for a full stop, but sentence two produces the same amount of pause and, annoyingly, says “This is another test sentence. dot It uses two full stops.”

I was hoping I might be able to add a dictionary entry for '. .' and variants thereof, but with no success. My normal NVDA setting is for punctuation/symbol level of some, and turning it to none stops the 'dot' being announced for the second full stop, but the result is then exactly the same for both test sentences.

I won't go into more detail here about why I want to do this, but please do ask if it has any significance :)

Hi,

This has to do more with synthesizers than screen readers.

Also, the default for NVDA is to save settings on exit.  If you are going to experiment, this is a bad setting.  It means that you might save settings you have no intention of making permanent.  This setting should be disabled.  Open the NVDA menu, down arrow to preferences and press enter.  You are in a dialog.  Tab to save settings on exit.  It's a check box.  Uncheck it by pressing the space bar.  Tab to and activate the ok button.
Now save the setting to make it permanent.  Issue the command control NVDA key c and you should hear configuration saved.  I never have NVDA save anything automatically.  I want to control exactly when things are saved.  In my strong opinion, save settings on exit should not be enabled by default.  It does a real disservice to new users who may want to try different settings with no intention of making them permanent.  A perfect example of too much automation. 
 
Do you know how to find information in the manual? It's one long web page.  Here is what the manual says in it's first sentence or two about input composition settings:
The Input Composition Settings dialog can be found under the Preferences menu. This dialog allows you to control how NVDA reports the input of Asian characters, such as with IME or Text Service  
 
Clearly, something you might be curious to know what it is, but nothing it would make any sense to play with other than look at unless you use Asian characters.

I woke up this morning, started up nvda, and all of a sudden, my insert key on the numpad started working correctly. Would you believe it.

I wonder what in the world caused it to all of a sudden start working?

Does anyone happen to know?

This is just getting more weird by the minute!

Re: strange problem

Gene
 

Do you understand that all commands such as control NVDA key s and Control NVDA key v are used without going into the menus?  You can get to the same settings in the menus but such commands are shortcuts that bypass the menus.  You can use them anywhere.  You aren't in NVDA when you use them.  You could be on the desktop, in a program, almost anywhere. 
 
In the menus, you would get to such settings by opening the menus, then down arrowing to preferences and pressing enter.  Then down arrow to either synthesizer and press enter or voice settings and press enter.  It sounds as though you would save yourself a lot of time and trouble by working with a good NVDA tutorial such as the one I sent a link to a number of days ago.

Hello guys.

You're not going to believe this one!

I woke up this morning, started up nvda, and all of a sudden, my insert key
on the numpad started working correctly. Would you believe it.

I wonder what in the world caused it to all of a sudden start working?

Does anyone happen to know?

This is just getting more weird by the minute!

Thanks.

Chris.

MANY THANKS FOR YOUR HELP RUI, BUT MY PROBLEM IS THAT EVEN WHEN I GO TO SYNTHESIZERS THROUGH THE MENU, TO CHANGE IT, THE ONLY

SYNTHESIZER I GOT THERE NOW IS THE MICROSOFFT PLATFORM, WHILE I SHOULD HAVE THE ELOQUENCE INSTALLED AS WELL.

MOST PROBABLY WHAT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED IS THAT I MIGHT HAVE PRESSED SOMETHING WRONG, BECAUSE EVEN WHEN I PRESS NVDA PLUS CONTROL V, NOTTHING HAPPEN.

Re: nvda choaks up arrowing down

There is no reason to believe at this time, that any of the suggestions in the message quoted below apply.  Many people have reported such problems.  There appears to be something in NVDA that needs fixing and it may have been fixed in the version that people tried and discussed perhaps four or five days ago.  I don't remember what the term is for that version.  it is a trial version to see if issues were fixed.  Before worrying about processors or fans or all the other possibilities, try the trial version.  Also, if another screen-reader doesn't have these problems, that, too, is evidence that the problem is an NVDA problem.

Well I'd check startup programs.

I'd also set scheduals of security software to times when you are not
using the system or turn them off and just scan every so often.

I'd also check startup programs and use something like ccleaner to
handle those.

You could have an overheating processer or stuck fan.

In a desktop its easy enough to clear out the cpu, regrease the syncs,
replace a fan or psu and away you go.

In a laptop while at home a coolent stand under the unit and external
keyboard do help some.

For your desktop especailly if it gets hot, putting a small fan by the
case and letting it wrip is another solution, my friend who has his
computers in an atic room uses the fan to keep himself and his machines
cool, both get equally hot in there.

Failing that you could have a bad keyboard or something ran out of power.

I have had it where I will be typing on the board well wireless anyway
and suddenly the system will not respond.

There have been times where I have looked and realised I have no power
cells for the units.

Ask if someone removed Word or Office.  It sounds as though someone did something like that which damages Windows ability to work with NVDA.  I don't know if the problem can be corrected other than by doing something like reverting Windows using the Windows 10 feature.  But I don't know if everything must be removed or if Windows can be reverted while keeping installed programs.  Others who know more will, I hope comment.

hi guys




i have a lady who gave me her laptop. She is running Windows 10 with the anniversary version of windows. it is a 64 bit machine and has NVDA 2017.2 on it at present.

she has mozilla thunder bird and fire fox etc on it.

there are no viruses etc on it.




NVDA starts up and is using the e speak synth.




some of the things it is doing like when you tab say from the start menu across the taskbar where the running applications are it is saying unknown. Ausing the arrow keys nvda will not speak any thing. A sighted person said there is little icons there but are not getting read out. it will speak the windows notification area and also the desktop. You can arrow around etc and that part works. You can go into NVDAs menus etc. You can also go into windows explorer and navigate there as well. But the menus up the topwill only speak the main tabs and not any thing as you tab down the list.




When you go into mozilla thunder bird it just says unknown as you tab. you can not even get into the menus up the top with the alt key etc.




the same sort of thing happens in mozilla fire fox and there is a page loaded which it does not speak. it will not even speak the menus up the top either. Quick navigation keys do not even work.

I have even uninstalled NVDA totally both through the program and features section and also under the %appdata% section then installed a clean copy of NVDA, yet the same results.




At present i am doing a system restore to a earlier date but will not know until it boots up if the problems is still there.




The applications key when pressed i got told it comes up, but nvda does not speak it when you arrow down the menu.




any ideas i could try? I have also tried it from a thumb drive with a good working copy, but still the same results.

I will try and get a nvda log and send it so you guys might get a better idea of what is happening.

Google Pinyin input and NVDA

Milos Przic
 

Hi all,
My question can be a little tricky, but I hope there is someone on the list who uses the Google's pinyin input on their PCs.
I am a beginner studying chinese and am still not able to understand all the options in the Pinyin input settings, but with somebody's help, if I change these, I might succeed. Of course, in order not to clutter up the list if there are not many interested, you can also contact me privately.
When I am typing chinese characters using the Google pinyin input, I don't get the character description automatically. What I do is, type a character, then find it with the arrow keys and with the insert+numpad 2 twice read its description. It is a very slow way of typing, and NVDA doesn't read the candidates' descriptions automatically although all the settings in the input composition settings are checked. I am using Windows 10 and vocalizer Tian-Tian as the voice for reading Chinese. So do I have to check something in the input settings in the Google pinyin itself also? What should I do?
Thanks to everybody in advance, and best regards!

I was a member of this group a couple of years ago.  I left but I have rejoined the list.



I think NVDA is an excellent screen reader.  I find it very useful for many applications.



I hope to be able to financially contribute to NVDA soon however at the moment, I am out of work and I'm looking for a position in customer service at a call center.


In addition to the latest version of NVDA which I just downloaded, I also have Mozilla Firefox and the latest flash player on my desktop.



Does a list of commands exist where I can find out what keys to press from the keyboard to send e-mails and other messages to more than one person?  If so, where can it be found and how do I access it?



I look forward to hearing from you and participating on this list.

Re: NVDA Chokes Up When Arrowing Down

 

Well one strength of nvda is also its weakness.

Nvda focuses on using internal os libraries and standards to function.

There are no third party dlls, or drivers or intercepts or any number of crappy middlemen and thats why nvda is good.

At the same time if any of those libraries have bugs or other things do not work with them or they fail, nvda becomes useless.

If jaws and other comercial products have anything to go for them, their major use of these layers protect them from a lot of issues with broken things.

And for the most part this works.

However performance is lower or can be and you may have to enter special modes to get things to work right.

In nvda's case, most of what it uses is allready there.

But if it isn't there and it doesn't have it in itself or a module then there can be trouble.

One thing I can say though is that unless it really can't make sence of something it won't crash, and if it can't it probably just won't do whatever you want and go beep can't do this.

I have found that your average layered screen reader can do a little more than nvda but give it something to hard for it, and it will try to do it anyway, even though it may not b be able to handle it.

It will then crash, and depending on several factors either take itself, its settings or bits of your system with it.

I have had some access software that did this.

The system would crash because of something I couldn't do well it couldn't do, and it would go down, and take bits of windows with it.

Windows wouldn't start and I would have to reformat to make windows start.

I remember an old supernova sr which did this after testing some maps.

Some stuff wouldn't work bits of things kept going, the system didn't start or run right.

At first I thought the system had gone nuts but after reformatting the system about 10 times I found a pattern.

I eventually tracked down the map and reported it.

The issue was fixed but that was the end of my testing.

And the intercepts before the direct, chain, mirror drivers and later on uia intercepts, well they were unstable.

There were hacks to load 2 readers and that was fun, uninstall them wrong or run them both together and you lost the system.

Hi Brian,
I have reported this choking problem a while ago. I have an Intel processor and using the latest Win10 and latest NVDA version. It chokes when arrowing down in Outlooks 2013, and Firefox. It does the same when I hit the Ctrl key to silence the voice. Some times I have to hit the Ctrl key several times to shut it off. I also experience many delays when entering Outlook and in Firefox when entering my home page which is Yahoo.com/finance. The choking and prolonged silence are less noticeable when using Chrome. I have given up on using IE 11 as the choking and silences are so bad making the browser useless.
