Re: Scope of the Calibre addon

Mallard
 

Yes, that's Ebook-converter Gui, which I still have, but it's only for converting ebooks, and not for reading them.


The Calibre menus have become somewhat more accessible with the advent of QT5, as far as I understand, but the text within the viewer is still unreadable by screen readers.


I don't now whether text is encrypted or what, but it appears to be presented as an image, even if it's text.

Using Win10 OCR, you can read the text, otherwise nothing doing.


The same thing happens in Sumatra pdf, in both pdf and epub files.

Since I don't use ePub I can't tell you if this version will do what
you want it to do, but you can download an installer or a portable
version here and you can give it a try:

Calibre front-end installer:
http://opopanax.net/download/Setup_eBook-convert_GUI.exe

Calibre front-end portable:
http://opopanax.net/download/eBook-convert_GUI_Portable.zip

Both versions require that you have Calibre already installed, this is
just a front-end addon.
As Carlos was an NVDA user, I'm sure it will be totally accessible,
here's an excerpt from the readme file:
Calibre is an application for organizing and converting eBooks. It's
ability to convert between many eBook formats is one of it's more
useful features. Unfortunately, it is not very accessible and
although you can use the included ebook-convert command line utility
to convert files, many people are not comfortable with this approach.
eBook-convert GUI is a so called frontend for the ebook-convert.exe
command line utility. It can convert individual files and entire
folders including subfolders from any supported format to any other.

The copyright argument is really a poor one. As sighted person you can

And the copyright argument becomes even more ridiculous as Calibre

So I will stay unpacking Epubs and read the containing HTML files until

You can turn presenter mode off before starting your slideshow (or possibly during it, I'm not sure) by pressing ALT+S for the slide show ribbon, then V to toggle the "Use presenter view" checkbox.

Re: Section Symbol not reading

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi there,

You haven't said what program you are trying to read this section symbol in?  The only thing I could think of was a section break in Word?  In Office 365 on Windows 10, NVDA is reading section breaks for me.

If you could give more information on exactly what you are doing and how to recreate the issue, I'm happy to investigate further.

Quentin.

Re: Can't run NVDA with admin rights on a MS Surface

Re: Notepad++ add on - getting it to work?

Hi,

 

I have not tested all the features, but you could try NVDA+shift+backslash, which should announce the linenumber , column number and what is selected.

 

If that works, the add on is working. I have not gotten the MD function to work, but I have not spent a lot of time on it.

I’ve tried restarting NVDA and the computer, along with reading through the add-on documentation. What else can I try, please?

Rui,

Does there exist a page accessible by "the general public" where
one can browse for older versions of NVDA. I have had occasion to want
to
do this in the past. I thought I'd try the URL you gave, cutting it off
at
"releases," but if you try to go directly to that page you get a 403
Forbidden message. You even get the forbidden message if you cut off
only
the executable file name at the end.

There are plenty of legitimate reasons one might wish to
acquire an old, even long out of support version of NVDA. Is there a
central repository where these can be easily downloaded?

Re: Previous version of NVDA

Hi Igor,

By the slack chat application, do you mean Slack: https://slack.com/intl/en-au/  Are you using the web version or the downloadable client?  (And if web, in which browser?)

If you could send me a copy of your log from when you experience the issue before you downgrade NVDA, I can look into it.  Perhaps ideally at debug level (as nothing is crashing by the look of it, it just isn't reading?)

Also, do try the usual things - restarting with add-ons disabled, ensuring you have rebooted the computer, etc.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi all.

  Would like to ask please if it is possible to download the prior version of NVDA somewhere?

  I am using the slack chat application at work and it was working perfectly fine with last version of NVDA, however after version 2019.2 installation I started to have problems with that, it does not read chat messages.

  Would greatly appreciate, if someone could please point me to the older version download.

 

Thanks.

 

  Igor.
