Re: Creating First Line Indent with NVDA

Bianka Brankovic <bianka.brankovic@...>
 

Hi David and list,

 

I just tested with MS Word 2013. I created two paragraphs with a first line indent of 1.25 cm. NVDA told me the exact formatting of the text when I used Insert+f to review the formatting.  

 

As for your 2nd question: Brian is right, consistency is the key here. It’s just good editing practice to define as much of the layout in the document template and to do the finetuning manually later on. This way, it will be easier for your text to be processed by the different types of software used in the publishing process.

Kind regards,

 

Bianka

 


Re: NVDA 2019.3 and CodeFactory eloquence vocalizer addon?

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Hi Josh.

Due to the fact that in 2019.3 python3 will be used, I am thinking
about, before I update to 2019.3, right beforehand, that I will first
deactivate my CodeFactory NVDA addon license, and then update, and
then if it still shows up, I will re-activate the license. I'm
worried that the update may remove an activation of my license for the
CodeFactory eloquence vocalizer addon, or may cause it to stop working
completely. In that case it would be good just to deactivate it, and
switch to sapi5 eloquence until the addon is updated.
Josh
I think that precaution is unnecessary, since your Vocalizer license will still be installed on your machine. Deactivation and reactivation seem to be only required if you need to input your license key because you've reformatted your hard drive or reinstalled Vocalizer.
Now, what's this nonsense of no pronunciation dictionary file anywhere? I've even searched thee registry to no avail.

Hi Scott


Have a look at the following web page from off my website it should point you in the right direction.


The link to this page is http://accessibilitycentral.net/NVDA%20screen%20reader%20related%20resources.html

If i remember right it was Joseph who wrote the add on guide or helped in writing it.

There is information on log files at:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/LogFilesAndCrashDumps

One way, if it's an issue that you can replicate without then needing to reboot or something afterwards - replicate the issue, then press NVDA+F1 to open the log.  Press CONTROL+A to select all, then CONTROL+C to copy, create an email to me (or the list) with details of the issue and how to replicate, then press CONTROL+V to paste.

Kind regards

Re: Footnotes in LibreOffice

To jump from the body of the page to the footnote section, press CONTROL+SHIFT+PAGE DOWN.  To jump from the footnote section back to the body, press CONTROL+PAGE DOWN.

If found control+page down in their shortcut keys list, and guessed the other one (I mean, I tried it and it worked for me!): https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Shortcut_Keys_for_Writer

I haven't figured out how to get it to read the number though.

I was using Libre Office 6.1.3.2.  I just downloaded the installer for 6.2.5.2 and installed it, rebooted and .... noticed that the LIbre Office version number in the help menu is still 6.1.3.2, so not sure what's happened there...

Re: how to build add-ons for NVDA

 

Hi Scott and others,

In regards to a guide on writing NVDA add-ons, yes there is one.

However, before we go any further, think carefully if your proposal is unique to NVDA. If it is an app that can be made accessible yet the developer is unwilling to take action, then it should be an add-on. If it is a feature that can be done through web browser extensions, then no, it should not be an NVDA add-on unless we get a really good justification or two.

The reason I ask you to think carefully about this is because the add-ons community has received proposals similar to yours in the past. After discussing with the community, some did become add-ons, while others became something else, the biggest criteria being if a proposal is something that is unique to NVDA.

Cheers,

Joseph

Add-on Updater 19.08 released, first of two mandatory updates for everyone #addonrelease

 

Hi everyone,

 

Add-on Updater 19.08 is now available. This is the first of two mandatory updates for anyone using Add-on Updater.

 

Specifically:

 

  • Version 19.08 removes an experimental feature to present a toast message on Windows 10 when new add-on updates become available. Although this is useful, it was found that it isn’t ready for primetime yet (thanks for community feedback). Because this experiment was controlled by a setting, version 19.08 removes this, hence this being a mandatory update.
  • Version 19.08 includes a possible fix for download time-out. Specifically, if you respond to update notification more than five minutes of it appearing, you may get an error in regards to update download. This has been corrected, along with a new way of accessing the add-ons website to retrieve update status information for various add-ons.

 

The following describes Add-on Updater releases for the next few weeks:

 

  • 19.08 (released today): supports NVDA 2019.1, first mandatory update.
  • 19.08.1: to be released shortly after NVDA 2019.2 is released. The only change will be minimum NVDA version supported – 2019.2. This is not a mandatory update.
  • 19.09 (anniversary update): to be released later in August (or by early September at the latest), second mandatory update for everyone and requiring NVDA 2019.2 or later. By then, if the time-out bug is resolved, it’ll become a permanent feature of this add-on.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: CodeFactory vocalizer licenses

Orlando Enrique Fiol
 

Hi all,
I obtained my Vocalizer SAPI5 license and installed all the voices last night. NVDA sees them all, although they're not sorted in any discernable order. I was excited when II opened the Vocalizer control panel and encountered a check box for enabling a pronunciation dictionary in the options. One can even import something called a CFD file, which is presumably a pronunciation dictionary. However, since there is no documentation about how to create one and no sample CFD files in the program, I am temporarily stumped. I even created one dictionary entry with the Code Factory UI in order to see if a file would get created. Itt didn't. That was one of my main motivations for purchasing the SAPI5 license rather than the NVDA addon; I figured that I'd make one pronunciation dictionary that would be processed by the Vocalizer engine regardless of screen reader. That is proving to be a bust.
Also, these SAPI5 voices make JAWS crash every few minutes. The responsiveness is also painfully slow. All in all, I would probably revoke my license if I could get a refund.
