Re: How should I read the parameter information of each method in Visual Studio?

Luke Robinett
 

Good catch! I’m a Visual Studio user as well and it would be handy if this feature was screen reader accessible. Another long-standing issue which I have discussed in the past is when navigating an IntelliSense menu in the code editor, instead of just hearing the selected item as you arrow up or down, you hear the entire line of code and then the menu item each time. This makes the feature almost useless.

I use C# to program, and I want to know how to read the parameter information of each method. Visual Studio has a shortcut key, Ctrl+Shift+Space or CtrL +k, p which is useless for me. When I use the above shortcut When you press the key, NVDA will only read "Ready", but using the up and down arrows does not read the given parameter information. Is this a bug in NVDA? Microsoft has related tutorials. The following is a link. After you open it, you can press the letter H to find the relevant instructions about the parameter information, However, it is useless for me, and perhaps more accurately, it is useless for NVDA.

I very much hope that NVDA can do this and look forward to your reply.

Re: How can I tell if a cell is grayed out in Excel?

Pranav Lal
 

Hi Eric,

Your best bet would be to do a nvda key +f and see if NVDA gives you that information. If it does not, grab jaws and explore. I am not sure what setting will work but I have found Jaws to handle such cases better.

For a project, I need to go through a spreadsheet and bypass any cells that are grayed out. How can NVDA (or Jaws) tell me if a cell is grayed out?

Thanks in advance,

Hi.

If you are referring to the possibility to create dictionaries assigned to specific configuration profiles, this is not yet possible with NVDA. However, you can create default dictionaries which are used in all contexts, dictionaries specific to different voices, and temporary dictionaries to use during an NVDA session, which will be removed when NVDA is exited.


Re: Here is A Tutorial on Configuration Profiles in NVDA

I don’t use macros, but until profiles can work with specific dictionaries, is there a simple macro program that can be used to conveniently switch dictionaries when desired?  for example, a macro that will rename the default diction ary file to default1.dic, then rename the desired file to default.ddic for current use?  then, when you want to switch back, the name changes can be reversed?

You mean, KitchenInc’s does exist? It works for win ten? I played it with  win xp. Also with 7. It worked better with xp.

The reason I bought the Sapi5 version of Eloquence is so I could use it with both NVDA as well as with Narrator. I really like Eloquence and its snappiness, and now I can use it no matter which screen reader I am using.

Hi everyone

 

Josh makes an important point regarding the SAPI5 version of Eloquence and there  being no difference with responsiveness/quality etc. Another important feature to consider is that you can use the SAPI5 version with other Windows applications, such as Narrator. 

 

Basically, if you just want to use Eloquence with NVDA, the add-on is great value because you get the additional Vocaliser (human sounding) voice. The purchase also supports NV Access. :)

 

If you want to use it with Narrator etc, buy the SAPI5 version.

 

All the best.

Re: Voices With NVDA Question Please.

Louise Pfau
 

I believe the default language on my computer is English (US), but I like the voices in the English (Canada) pack better. I was able to use them when I installed NVDA on a family member's computer, but I couldn't find them on my own computer until I figured out how to install other voice packs through the Windows settings.

No they have not, and they probably never will. We’ve brought this up on the android side, and the windows side a lot of times.

Re: How to update speech dictionary entries and configuration profiles on a portable version of NVDA?

 

If memory serves the easiest way, given what you want to accomplish, is just to create a fresh portable copy using the currently installed version, with all its dictionaries and add-ons getting "packaged with it" as a part of that.   And this is simple enough to do to test out my memory:

1 Hit NVDA + N, T, C  [NVDA Main Menu, Tools, Create Portable Copy]
2. In the dialog that comes up, either browse to or directly enter the folder in which you want that portable copy created.  This can be the drive letter with backslash for the root folder of a portable drive, e.g., G:\
3. Make sure the checkbox for Copy current user configuration is checked.
4. Optional.  If you wish to immediately begin testing the behavior of the portable copy, check the Start the new portable copy after creation checkbox.
5. Hit the Continue button.  Wait while the portable copy is created.  You will receive a success dialog when it's done.  Activate the OK button in that dialog

How to update speech dictionary entries and configuration profiles on a portable version of NVDA?

Luke
 

Hi! I put a portable version of NVDA on a thumb drive about a year ago .  I have no problem updating the NVDA version itself and add ons on the portable version. On the installer version of NVDA I have on my windows 10 desktop I have added entries to the speech dictionary and have made a few  minor changes to the main configuration profile I use. I want my  portable version  updated with those changes. Do I simply make a new portable version, or can I update the existing portable version I already have, or is there another way? Thanks!
