Hi, apologies for my ignorance but how do I find out what type of synth I am using with NVDA as I thought it came automatically the first time NVDA was loaded. If not, please advise me but I would like to find out as if I have to change it in the future NVDA upgrades, also at the time could someone let me know how to do that but I don’t feel it is important to change just yet.

 

I look forward to people’s replies and apologise if I’m sometimes a bit slow to reply if needs be.

 

Thanks, Steve

Re: MY SPEECH ON PC

 

if you did not change settings on nvda,
your speech should be espeak or windows one core by default.

Re: Jaws is now doing better with thunderbird than nvda

 

hi robert.
thanks so much for your great and helpful reply.
previously, when i expanded treeview in thunderbird and tried to
navigate between emails
and i used arrow keys, nvda gave information about percentage
and i realized that thunderbird downloaded one gb of my gmails!
after doing your instruction, does thunderbird behave like online
version of gmail that i am sure firefox never downloads anythings for
me?
also, is there any solution in thunderbird that i can use even before
introducing my gmail to thunderbird?
that even thunderbird does not make local folders in my laptop?
i sincerely appreciate you, God bless you and His infinite mercy i pray for you!

Re: Changing NVDA's startup hotkey if no desktop icon

tvalusek@...
 

Here's how to change NVDA's start-up shortcut key if you don't have an icon on desktop:

1. Open Start menu/screen by pressing Windows key
2. Type "nvda" and don't press Enter key. The focus should stay on an NVDA item in search results
3. Press kontext menu key (to the left of right-hand ctrl key, at least on desktop keyboards), or Shift+F10 to invoke context menu.
4. Choose "Open file location" command.
5. A windows Explorer Window opens within the hidden start menu structure and the focus should be on the NVDA shortcut.
6. Press Alt+Enter and you're in File properties dialog.
7. Tab to "Shortcut key" box and choose your own startup key combination.

This should work for you.

According to Mozilla, that is the proper keyboardish way to get there.
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/access-toolbar-functions-using-keyboard

There are several inaccessible things on my version of that menu. It appears better to use the alt menus, which are well organized.

everything that's under the Menu Button via the usual menus, which appear when ALT is hit, that's probably why.The only method I've been able to find is
getting to the address bar, tabbing twice, then right arrowing whatever number of times is necessary to reach the Firefox open menu button based on the

I read e-books on Windows 10 with NVDA.

For Firefox, the only way I know of to get there is to hit ALT+D to throw focus to the address bar, tab twice to land on the bookmarks button (unless it's been removed or moved), then right arrow the number of times needed to get to it.   The number of times will vary from machine to machine based on what Firefox Add-Ons have been installed that have placed buttons in the area between the bookmarks button and the Firefox open menu button.
There's almost certainly got to be a keyboard shortcut to throw focus directly to it, but the conventional ALT alone causes Firefox to display the old-style menus instead.

Hi Don


Are you talking about the minimize, restore and close part of the browser top right of the browser.


If you are not using a mouse try the following it is a short cut to do the same thing.


Use the alt key + space bar to bring up a context menu. This needs to be done while in the page.


It will then give you options like minimize restore and close  there may be other options if it is minimized instead of maximized.


You will  see what I mean when you try it.


The other options also if you have no mouse is use the golden cursor to get to the same area.


Am I reading you correctly on what you want?

in that case, i can use python 3.4 or earlier.
i remember that joseph lee mentioned that version 3.4 of python is the
last version which supports xp.

Hi everyone,

My apologies, I was on leave last week and am still catching up on
messages and the group. I'm not ignoring anyone :)

In the meantime, I saw this on Facebook, from CAVI - the Cisco
Academy for the Vision Impaired. They are running a Python course,
online and open to anyone (and Linux Essentials for anyone
interested in that as well). I know there is often interest in
learning Python and if that is you, then this may be a good
opportunity. They don't have it up on their site (or didn't last I
checked), but see this facebook post for details:

eply


Essentially:

"The courses we will be offering as of January 2020 will be, Python
Essentials and Linux Essentials! 👌👍😃 If you could please send and
email to neil.hines@curtin.edu.au, with the course you'd like to
participate in, plus your first and last name plus your date of
birth and country of origin, we will be in contact over the next 2
weeks to confirm the course details and your enrolment into either
offering, many thanks in advance,"
