Press your windows key and type "speech".
Move down to "speech settings", and press enter.
Then tab over to the "Manage voices" group, and you should be on the "add voices" button.
Press enter on that, and you will be able to enter and choose your language, and then install the voice pack(s) that you want.
At minimum, you'll want to install/keep the English (US) voice pack.
Once you select and install the voice pack(s) you want, close everything and restart NVDA.

You will have to go into settings > time and language > speech > add voices

 

Then from the list select which voices you want and hit ok , they will then be downloaded and show up in the list of installed voices

 

You may need to restart screen reader for them to show up in nvda

Re: Musescore and NVDA

Marco Oros
 

Hi.

I sometimes quickly read messages. Ofcourse, I don't remember every message on this list. There were many problems and if I'll read every message, It will be waste of time to me.

Ofcourse, I now remember, that something will be there, but I need personal rather experience.

I would like to try to write musical score. I have heard, that Musescore can be accessible with NVDA for example, to read notes, but I don't know, if It is accessible to write notation.

Thank You.

best regards

Marco Oros

I'm surprised you didn't find any answers in the list archives; it has come up several times over the years.

In fact, entering:

site:groups.io/g/nvda musescore

Got me several hits, the second one from 2020 saying that yes it is accessible, but possibly offering some caveats or considerations.

A quick Google search reveals several results about using MuseScore with NVDA. Furthermore, as free and open source software, there is really no reason you could not have tried this for yourself.

Hello.

Maybe It is strange question, maybe no. I have a question. Is Musescore accessible with NVDA, or no?

Also, can I enter and play notes with Musescore using NVDA?

Thank You.

Any suggestionns of what I can buy instead?
Today you need focusrite control to change things in the mixer. no
hardware buttons any more.

I haven't tried it recently, but in the past it has been minimally usable
with
object nav and a very good memory. But I wouldn't recommend it.

It's possible that it has improved in the last couple years, but they showed

Re: problems with a punctuation mark

Sarah k Alawami
 

It was actually easy for me to figure out. In 1994 when I was about 12 years of age I would play around with the shift numbers and memorise what the bang and at was in braille as well as i would emboss them. So for me bang means exclaim, and you would say "bang!" to mean it. Like "bang! Bang!" he's dead."

Hope that somewhat helps

Re: Braille Formatting

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Gentlemen,

The setting for this is sometimes called “Compress blank spaces” as it is called in the Orbit Reader. I would expect the Braille display to manage this rather than NVDA. Does the Brailliant offer such a choice?

 

 

All the best,

Not that I can think of.  There is a Braille setting to "Read by paragraph" but I think it uses the Word model of hard line break (eg when you've pressed enter while typing) = new paragraph.

Did you get an answer to this?  The only thing I can think of is could it simply be the document?  EG this first line of my reply is quite long and although visually it likely wraps to a second line, it is one "line" and should pan correctly on a Braille display.

This line is short.

This too.

Re: accenting letters

 

Although all who have mentioned that accented characters are indeed separate characters with separate character codes, and that these can be inserted using the ALT+ unicode method, there are programs, MS-Word being one, where you can get these by entering "the accent mark sequence," usually CTRL+ the accent mark you want, BEFORE typing the character upon which you want that accent placed.

See:  

Keyboard shortcuts to add language accent marks in Word

or any of a number of the tutorials returned by: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=accented+characters+MS-Word 

Word processors (and, maybe, office suite programs in general) make this somewhat easier via "accent followed by character" technique than many other types of programs do, and where the ALT+ unicode is required.

Re: accenting letters

Quentin Christensen
 

You can hold down ALT, type a number and release alt.  For instance, to type an "a acute", á, press alt, type the numbers 0 2 2 5 and let go.  Here's a chart: https://sites.psu.edu/symbolcodes/windows/codealt/

If you have to type a particular letter regularly, you will likely get used to that sequence.  For instance, I've used the British pound symbol a few times, and remember that it is alt 1 5 6: £.

In some cases, you might find creating a reference file you can quickly access to pull up commonly used symbols.  EG if you work with a lot of different currencies, or music symbols.

If you need to type the letters from a particular language regularly, then you can set Windows up to use the keyboard for that language in Windows Language settings, then you can switch between them with WINDOWS+spacebar.

Regards

Quentin.
Kind regards

Quentin.
