Hello All,

           I have approved this message because it relates directly to an NVDA add-on under development.   That being said, working through the kinks and giving feedback for said add on belongs on the NVDA Developer Toolkit group that Andy Borka mentions in his message.   For ease of joining for those who might be interested:


All discussion specific to this add-on, while under development and in alpha and early beta stage, belongs on that group.

This topic is now locked.

locked New addon: Developer toolkit coming soon

Andy B.
 

Hi,

 

I am an addon developer who is creating an addon that assists blind/visually impaired developers create appealing user interfaces without the help of sighted people. So far, the addon has been tested in Firefox and Chrome with success, and Windows 10 with limited success. At this time, I am rewriting the addon so it can be a global plugin. This means that it will work anywhere NVDA will work. The addon still has significant progress to make before it is production ready and considered stable. However, it is on the right track. If you want to get involved with Developer toolkit’s progress, feel free to visit the following links.

 

Repository: http://www.github.com/ajborka/nvda_developer_toolkit

Latest release: https://github.com/ajborka/nvda_developer_toolkit/releases/tag/v0.4.0-beta

Mailing list: http://www.groups.io/g/nvda-developer-toolkit

 

Thanks for your time and consideration…

Re: Nvda and Language Esperanto

                             Dear Ron & List:

Yes, there are Esperanto clubs &^& practice opportunities live in many places of the world and others via Skype, Team Speak and other voice communication Apps.                 

 

As it always has been, a niche language primarily for persons who enjoy learning additional languages.

 

It is considered an Auxiliary language, I guess as opposed to one used generally.

 

Someone even publishes a daily newspaper in Esperanto, possibly some magazines too.

 

It is like being a Latin scholar if you are Roman Catholic. You can correspond and telephone church officials in the Vatican. They generally appreciate you taking the time & effort to send well written Latin correspondence.

 

Friend of mine received a reply from the Curia in the Vatican congratulating him on his facility in Latin.

 

Together with Greek, it is a good thing for medical professionals to know.

Hi Group,

I am wondering if anyone speaks Esperanto any more.  I know it was a big thing that people in the 1960's tried to create a universal language and they wound up with Esperanto.  I can't think of anyone I ever knew that used it.

Hi Gene,

 

It seems to be rather in order.

I write in dictionary a punctuation and then the equivalent in Esperanto.

But there is a problem: How to write the Carriage return? I think, that I must write the words, because for them does not exist a punctuation?

Jarek

Den 02.06.2019 v 14:13 Gene nasal (a):

I don't know how such things are said in Esperanto.  In the speech dictionary, used to change the pronunciation of whatever you want to change, you can put the punctuation mark in and tell the dictionary how you want it said.  But the problem is that you will then hear punctuation spoken that way in English as well. 

 

You can get around the problem by having two speech dictionary files and manually putting the one you want to use in NVDA before you switch to the language.  That isn't automatic, but it would achieve what you want.

Hi gene, I am afraid, that I don't understand you.

If I have set the language Esperanto, Speak says the whole addresser so:

Uzivatel backlash, appdata backslash, roaming backlash, nvda backlash, voice backlash, speak backslash, dictionary y.

I would like to hear Speak saying in Esperanto.

If reading of punctuation isn't done properly, you can use the speech dictionary to manually enter the words you want to hear.  That may be enough information, but if you have questions about using the speech dictionary, ask here.

Re: Reading PDF Files with NVDA - How to?

Hareth
 

Quentin,
It looks like he's talking about instructions to use NVDA.
And if I'm not mistaken Francis is asking for 1on1 help with,
learning how to use NVDA in general,
And configure programs like acrobat reader for accessibility.
Plus learning how too use the mentioned programs with NVDA in specific.
And what I've understood from the post is he's having great difficulty
with writing e-mails do to his condition as well, I think dictation
would be the way to go in that case.
And I believe the best way to help him is to find a volunteer to start
training him if available.

Ok there's a few issues there. Let's see what I can help with:

Re reading the group emails and instructions - do you mean you can read the
emails fine, you just can't follow the instructions? (If so, please let us
know which specific ones if the rest of this doesn't help).

Firefox has a built-in PDF viewer, but it isn't as accessible as Adobe
Reader. In Firefox press ALT+T then O to go to the options. TAB down to
"Search file types or applications", type PDF and press ENTER. Then press
TAB once to the list of file types and PDF. Tab again to "Preview in
Firefox" and down arrow to "Use Adobe Reader DC". PDF files you open from
web pages should now open in Adobe reader.

You should be able to read PDF files in Adobe reader by either using NVDA's
reading commands (eg say all with NVDA+down arrow or NVDA+A) or arrows
etc. If the file won't read at all, it's likely it is made as an image of
text. In that case you can try using NVDA's OCR function to read it -
press NVDA+R to recognise, then use the reading commands. If it is an
image of text, however, it is worth writing to the original author to
advise them that it is not accessible, as OCR does have its limiations.

I haven't tried Atlantis lately, so I can't comment on how well it works.
If it isn't accessible (and I'll leave it to others to offer more wisdom on
that), then you might consider Jarte as a word processor which is not Word,
or Libre Office.

Kind regards

Quentin.

While emoticons and emoji are often thought of interchangeably, and there are even certain e-mail clients that will convert typed emoticons to their emoji equivalent, there are still many that do not.

Based on the description of the add-on I would imagine it is still entirely useful in any context where an e-mail message is in plain text and contains emoticons.

Re: Reading PDF Files with NVDA - How to?

 

Arlene,

          Windows 10 (and maybe 8.1, I can't recall) assigns Edge as the default app for PDF files.   If you wish for PDFs to be opened by something else, like Adobe Reader DC or another PDF reader of your choosing that's already installed on your system:

1. Open Settings, Apps, Default Apps Pane

2.  Navigate to the Choose default apps by file type link then activate it.

3.  When the Choose default apps by file type dialog opens, get yourself to the entry for PDF (which may take a while, as I have not found any quick and easy way to get through the list - someone else may be able to jump in with the way to quickly navigate here).   Your default app will show as Edge, and that is a button, so activate it.

4. You will be presented with the Choose an app pop-up, and you can TAB through the apps presented until you find your PDF reader of choice.  Hit Enter to select it.

5.  ALT+F4 to close the Choose default apps by file type dialog.

At this point when you have a PDF file that needs to be opened it should open in your chosen PDF reader rather than Edge.

For earlier versions of Windows this is accomplished similarly, but via Control Panel, Default Programs, Associate a file type or protocol with a program link.

Alexandre, Have you got a file you can share?  I just tried a couple of files with tables and they read fine in Adobe Reader DC (19.012.20035) and NVDA 2019.2 beta 2.

Hi, maybe the title is a little confusing.

I have a pdf file with tables.

If I open it in adobe, nvda reads as if it doesn’t have tables.

But when I open the same pdf in word 2016, the tables are there and I can navigate them using nvda.

Hi Arlene,

 

Try using Adobe reader. I know at one point, Edge was quite good with PDF files, although maybe some work better than others.

Hi list: Arlene here.  How does one read PDF files using edge?  I tried to read a vollenteer application form.when I opened the attachment it went to edge.  When I tried to read the application All I got was blank blank. I know there are words there.  It said pages one of two and all I hear is blank.  I end up on Microsoft edge. How do I read this file.  I want to submit my answers that I had gone over with a job coach. Thanks.I hope this was clear.

Hmmm, What version of windows are you using?  Cause for me when I open an attachment in windows mail I’m taken to Microsoft edge.
