Re: Punctuation/Symbol pronunciation

enes sarıbaş
 

Hi Brian,

So basicly it works that if you capatilize the letters  of a word, they are read one by one. While if you write lowercase, they are read as a word. Example. vip is read as vip  however VIP is read as v i p. That is why lower case nvda isn't read as n v d a.

Jackie,

           But, since virtually no one ever sets the NVDA level itself to "all," that's the reason for my little proviso in the last message, "under typical NVDA settings conditions." I think virtually anyone would be driven mad were NVDA's own level set to "all" as its default (or even temporarily).

           I thought about the dictionary, too, but wasn't sure how single characters (symbols, really) strung together would be treated.  It seems to me that the speech dictionaries use the concept of "word" and in most cases for the IPA reading we want character by character announcement whenever an IPA word is encountered.  If each IPA symbol were a word in the dictionary it seemed to me that this would prevent the very character by character announcement in all cases that I was seeking for non-whitespace-separated sequences of the IPA symbols wherever they occurred.   Perhaps I'm mistaken about that.

           Also, as an aside, does NVDA interpret lower case single characters as sometimes being pronounced differently than uppercase?   For example, if I were to use 'a' (sans the quotes, of course) as the replacement text for something might I get "ah" being pronounced while if I were to use 'A' I'd get what you'd expect for saying the name of the letter A?    One substitution I've made long ago in my default dictionary is that 'nvda' is replaced for the synth with 'NVDA' because the two were not treated as the equivalent, and the former came out as something close to phonotactically impossible under the rules of English pronunciation.

Microsoft Narrator VS NVDA

Hi everyone,

I just want to know what voice program you use most often. NVDA or Moderator? I'm impressed with your opinion. It is true that when I used the Moderator program and went to browse the Google chrome website, for example Facebook, there is somewhat different than NVDA.

Re: weather plus addon

David Moore
 

Hi!

I tried the weather plus add-on again today, and it says that the temperatures are much higher than they really are.

For example, in Columbus, it says the temp is 93 degrees.

All of the information is wrong for every city I check around the world.

I did everything correctly, changing everything to the knew API.

Is anyone having trouble in the United States with this?

Is anyone using the add-on in the united states who can tell me how the information for every city is being given to them?

Have a great one, guys, and thanks for what you are doing!

Re: Punctuation/Symbol pronunciation

Hi Brian,

From the exchange here, I think the answer to your question is none. If you set the symbols to none, they will never be ignored, and always spoken, which is why the fractions are set at this level.

I need to step away from this for the evening.  I have a history as a programmer and I still cannot comprehend in which orders these levels ensure that something is said versus when it isn't.

Based on Tony's description these seem to be "skip speaking the item levels," with none meaning always spoken, while what I'm getting from your description is the opposite.

It would be so much easier for me if these were numbers rather than English descriptions.   At least then the hierarchy order would be clear.

In any case, my main concern at the moment is if one has a series of symbols that compose a word, but those symbols are not letters, and you want to be certain that these symbols are always spoken each and every time they're encountered, what does one set the level to in order to ensure that.  They'd never be passed to the synth since it's the symbol name (replacement text) that will need to be spoken.

Hello Everyone,

 

Is NVDA supposed to read each title of a PowerPoint slide twice? By default, it is reading the slide title twice at the beginning of each slide. I changed the order of the objects in the selection pane, but that only changed when it read the title for the second time. Is there a way to edit my slides so that NVDA will read the slide titles only once?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Just to let you know the web site has come back on line it seemed it was a very series crash on there end. it may go up and down while they repopulate all the web sites on that server.

 

Hopefully nothing like this happens again for a very long long  ..... time again.

Hi

 

The website has been zipped you will need a program to unzip it. You can also do it with windows explorer but may be better to make a folder then put the files into it that is easy to find. Then it is a matter of just going to the index file with in the folder and pressing the enter key on it and use it like normal. As long as people have internet access they should be able to access audio files  etc.

 

There may be another tutorial been added on later this week so will update the link to the drop box account then.

 

I will let people know then.

 

The drop box link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/fh0ke305t6afduw/Accessibility%20Central%20Website.zip?dl=0

The people we host with were alerted when i first noticed it and it has to be fixed on there end. I do not know when it will be back up but hopefully it is ASAP.

 

I guess this is maybe what you get some times when you host with a free provider? with no adds and only have to pay for the domain name.

 

It sounds pretty serious like the server hard drive took a dive?

 

If any one wants to access the material on it at present I can zip it up and drop box it until it comes back on line.

This will only be the website files not the audio files as every one has access to the internet mostly.

 

You will then need to unzip it and put it into a folder with the files. Then it is a matter of just accessing the index file for the website.

 

I might again even look at other options for hosting.

 

Let us know and can drop box to the list.

Re: more on the alt tab issue

If I relocate it though that will brake other functions of the app. So it looks like I'm stuck with this issue until the public release comes out which will bein about 2-3 months.

Take care.

Re: Punctuation/Symbol pronunciation

 

Jackie,

           But, since virtually no one ever sets the NVDA level itself to "all," that's the reason for my little proviso in the last message, "under typical NVDA settings conditions." I think virtually anyone would be driven mad were NVDA's own level set to "all" as its default (or even temporarily).

           I thought about the dictionary, too, but wasn't sure how single characters (symbols, really) strung together would be treated.  It seems to me that the speech dictionaries use the concept of "word" and in most cases for the IPA reading we want character by character announcement whenever an IPA word is encountered.  If each IPA symbol were a word in the dictionary it seemed to me that this would prevent the very character by character announcement in all cases that I was seeking for non-whitespace-separated sequences of the IPA symbols wherever they occurred.   Perhaps I'm mistaken about that.

           Also, as an aside, does NVDA interpret lower case single characters as sometimes being pronounced differently than uppercase?   For example, if I were to use 'a' (sans the quotes, of course) as the replacement text for something might I get "ah" being pronounced while if I were to use 'A' I'd get what you'd expect for saying the name of the letter A?    One substitution I've made long ago in my default dictionary is that 'nvda' is replaced for the synth with 'NVDA' because the two were not treated as the equivalent, and the former came out as something close to phonotactically impossible under the rules of English pronunciation.

Re: Punctuation/Symbol pronunciation

Jackie
 

Actually, Brian, the symbols that are set to 'all' do get read if NVDA
punctuation is set to all. It's a horrible setting for casual reading,
but, when you're programming & correct punctuation will make or break
the program, as is often the case, then it's a necessary setting.

You said:
"When I first started looking at this I was interpreting the level as
a "speak under what conditions" descriptor, taking "all" as meaning
speak always and none as meaning "don't ever speak it.""

I could tell that was what was confusing you. Since you stated you had
a history as a programmer, I was hoping a little pseudocode demo would
clarify this whole concept for you.

I agree about the documentation, of course. There is a brief snippet
in the NVDA user's guide, but it might not be as instructive to
someone who is struggling w/the concept. At any rate, I'm really
thinking that what it appears you wish to do might better be done by
using the dictionary.

Jackie,

           That pseudocode sequence helps a lot.   It also confirms that the
meaning of the levels, essentially, is a "skip this under what conditions"
setting, where none gets you constant reading (skip none), and, under
typical NVDA settings conditions, all gets you never read (skip all).

           When I first started looking at this I was interpreting the level
as a "speak under what conditions" descriptor, taking "all" as meaning speak
always and none as meaning "don't ever speak it."

           For me, it seemed that some of the descriptions during this
exchange were each saying the above (though only one of the above).  This is
also not documented well anywhere that I can find, which made things worse.
I realize that these sorts of "under the hood" level functions are seldom
twiddled, but that makes documentation regarding same even more essential
for when someone actually wants or needs to twiddle.

Hi Don,


I have seen this as well.  A couple of days ago, my wind speed was 88 MPH when the real  speed was 8 MPH.
