Hi,

 

I can confirm Image For Windows works fine with NVDA and is fully accessible.

 


Re: NVDA Speech delay after Computer is Idle

Chris
 

Sounds like a power management issue

Possibly because  your hard drive is going to sleep, the delay may well be because you are using a mechanical HDD drive ,

 

Rather than a solid state SSD drive

 

You can prevent your hard drive going to sleep through your advanced power plan settings

If it is the computer going to sleep how do you wake it up? Is there a setting that may have gotten changed with the latest Windows update. I did not have this problem until then.

Hi Thomas,

 

No problem, glad to help you out.

NV-music-viewer addon

Josh Kennedy
 

Also I forgot to mention if such an addon is created, let us have a toggle option so as you navigate through the music-xml file you can turn midi music on or off to hear it as you navigate through the music-xml with arrow keys using midi playback.

NV-music-viewer addon

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

 

Since NVMath viewer exists, could someone please make an NVDA addon that will let you open a music-XML file and show it as printed music in the browse mode buffer? Therefore a sighted person could see it, you could navigate through it with conventional arrow and navigation keys and NVDA would read you the notes, measures, chords, and other musical characteristics, and if a braille display is connected, you would see braille music notation on your braille display.

 

Thanks,

 

Josh

NVMathViewer addon question

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

When I use the nvMathViewer addon, could a sighted person see what is in the math viewer browse mode as printed math? Or is this only visible to the screen reader and braille display if one is connected?

Hi,

 

Look this one up from Carroll press.  It’s called When One Web browser is not enough. It’s a guide for using the internet with jaws and NVDA. 

Hope this helps.

This problem with NVDA began after my latest windows update. Sometimes it will happen even when I am in the middle of doing something like saving a document.


I read Jonathan's article but it is above my understanding of how to handle the situation.

Hello again,
the thing is that it also happens when a sound is playing (for example
video or audio), it takes some time til NVDA starts working again after
not being active.

Hello list,
I have some weird issue with NVDA.
When I do not use my laptop for a longer period of time (half an hour
and longer), but the laptop is stil on, and when I want to use it again,
I pres any key, NVdA takes quite a long time to start speaking.
I have Lenovo, Windows 10, latest NVDA version and I have screensavers,
and standby mode disabled.
Please, if anyone knows any workaround, let me know.
Thank you very much for your help.

Re: accessible disk imaging software.

Richard Kuzma
 

Good morning,
I use image for windows and it is completely accessible.
I use it with jaws but nvda should work as well.
It is very inexpensive and has a thirty day trial.
I have successfully backed up my pc for about four years now and even used it to backup and restore to a new hard drive with no trouble.
Hope this helps,
Rich

Re: When auto-language switching fails

Deborah, regarding other speech options you can purchase licenses for Nuance Vocalizer voices as well as Acapela, both of which offer Spanish options.

This link takes you to the page where you can purchase a package giving you a combination of both Eloquence and Vocalizer, which is the option that I purchased.

The various voices for Acapela and Vocalizer need to be individually downloaded.

Hello,
I am wanting to use nvda with station playlist 5.40.
Will this be like starting over again in turns of the key strokes from Jaws?
For example, when I open studio, my encoders do not display the names of the radio stations that I previously named.
or is there a tutorial that can assist in this matter?
Hope this makes sense.
Thanks for your help in advance!
Regards,
Thomas.

Hi Thomas,

 

Lol,  had the exact same thing happen to me about 6 weeks ago. Here’s how to fix things. Kudo’s to Jackie for this fix.   

 

1) Press NVDA+ctrl+g to access the general settings dialog.

2) At this point, you're in a dropdown list. Hit home, then type e for english.

3) Shift tab twice to 'apply' & activate the button.

4) You'll be asked to restart. If you hit enter, NVDA will restart &

your changes should take effect permanently.

 

 

Hope this helps

 

Tony
