Re: Code factory synthesizers in Windows 10 with latest release of NVDA

Sam Bushman
 

Hi All,

I also updated NVDA on my Windows 10 machine to version 2019.1

I had Code factory eloquence installed, and my registration stayed registered ok.

I am using: Eloquence NVDA 1.0.3

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Sam

Subject: [nvda] Code factory synthesizers in Windows 10 with latest release of NVDA

Hello


I just updated NVDA on my Windows 10 machine to version 2019.1


I had Code factory elequence installed, but now it is asking me to re-register my Code Factory voices - has anyone else had this happen?


The code factory directory appears at the main nvda menu level as before
but if you click on either Eloquence or Vocalizer you get a list of
voices but when you try to select them nothing happens.


If you try to select either Eloquence or Vocalizer from the synthesizer
option under Settings/speech it just asks you to register the voices,
and offers you a button to click to continue to the registration page.
Again, when I press this button, nothing happens.

This may not be consistent, Or you may be using a beta Firefox version.  I updated Firefox this morning and this setting is off by default.

Guys, the most recent firefox update stops autoplay by default, which,
IMO, is a *really* good thing & long past overdue. You can change the
behavior by going into tools > options > privacy & security > block
websites from automatically playing sounds. The next button is for
exceptions, ie, if you want youtube to begin playing videos everytime
you go there, then add it to the exceptions list.

HTH.

Re: Question about braille sign

Anne Günther
 

Hi,
unfortunately, you're right, the creators of this (and probably most others) know what they're doing the coding is correctly set to utf8 and so, no the coding option isn't available in the menu.
But why is the utf8 coding actually a problem. I mean, why does produce strange corresponding braille signs in some cases?
Guenni


Re: Question about braille sign

Jackie
 

Guenni, this is probably an apostrophe in Unicode, likely UTF8. It is
generally considered correct coding procedure to signify the language
& character encoding of the document. Failure to do so throws errors
in all browser development tools, so the likelihood is that there's
really no way to fix it. If the author did not specify an encoding
method, then perhaps the text encoding item on the view menu can help
you fix it. But, as I said, that's normally not the case, as
specifying this is really standard coding procedure.

Re: Youtube in Firefox don't automatically plays video after loading Youtube

Hello,

If I'm not wrong, I've read that the Firefox 66  browser will not automatically read Youtube videos.

Source:

https://hacks.mozilla.org/2019/02/firefox-66-to-block-automatically-playing-audible-video-and-audio/

Maybe you can paste the YouTube video URL into the VLC Media Player for example, it's a matter of trying.

Cheers since France

Re: Youtube in Firefox don't automatically plays video after loading Youtube

Andre Fisher
 

I must also agree that I like this change. To turn it off:

1. Click the menu button and choose Options.
2. Select the Privacy & Security panel.
3. Scroll down to the Permissions section.
4. Use the Block websites from automatically playing sound setting to change your preference. Your selection will apply to all media for all websites.

You can also do it on a site by site basis.

One of the questions answered there was precisely what I'd ask, however, I'm still with the question not answered properly.
The FAQ page says that, once purchased, Eloquence will have support to minor updates.
So I would like to know, what are these "minor updates" and in which cases do I'd need to purchase it again?

It depends whether there is an Eloquence driver in Python on the system for nvda users. If there is then when Python 3 versions of nvda start to appear it may need a minor rewrite.
