Do you have a log just in case that would help in this case, as a few are apparently experiencing the error?

Hi,


Impossible!
No city is ever canceled by a Weather_Plus update, there is no automatic instruction in the code that can do this without the user's consent.

A city can only be eliminated by a voluntary action by the user in the following cases:

1 When a city does not work properly, after 2 consecutive malfunctions the user is alerted by a dialog box asking if he wants to delete it from the list, if by mistake it is confirmed, only in this moment the city is eliminated.
2 From the settings window, by pressing the "Remove" button.
So, third case, Weather_Plus has become sentient and some cities are not nice to him and autonomously decided to eliminate them on his own. lol According to you which is 3?

If the entire list of cities had been canceled, it would have been more acceptable,Jokes aside, cities are saved in% appdata% nvda weather.zipcodes, and therefore are not located in the% appdata% vda addons weather_plus directory, and therefore cannot be altered or deleted by a component update additional.
be quiet and safe. :)

Hi!

In Weather 6.3, I had all of my cities. Now, I upgraded to 6.4, and I lost Columbus, Ohio, and many of my cities again!

I was wondering what this could be.

What happened between 6.3 that worked great, and 6.4?

Have a great one, guys!

Thanks Richard,

 

But for some obscure reason, some users continue to report errors from 6.2 to 6.4.
I'm pretty sure that these users, who use stable nvda versions (which have the error sound disabled) have 2 versions of Weather_Plus installed, one still in penginginstall, because for some reason the installation of an update has failed.

Weather_Plus can update itself, however you can download it from the following pages:

Re: Synthesizer languages with NVDA?

Ibrahim Abedrabbo
 

Zahra,
The espeak tries to read Arabic if you select Arabic from the NVDA's voice settings, However, It is extremely hard to understand the accent. I am a native speaker of Arabic and I can understand some words, but not entire sentences. So far the espeak is not a reliable option for those who want to have access to Arabic using NVDA. The best and most reliable option is to buy Acapela or vocalizer. I personally prefer the vocalizer. It is inexpensive, and very light, and the automatic language switching is almost perfect.

Regards,

Ibrahim

locked Issues With Google Drive

Ibrahim Ajayi
 

Hi good people:
This is not an issue with NVDA. It is one with google drive, which I
believe some members of this group use.
The problem I have with the program is that when I launch it, it
doesn't open on my computer.
I've downloaded the latest version of the program several times, using
different browsers, particularly the latest Google Chrome data.
When I launch the app, I hear task bar and that is all. Now when I
finish doing other things, and I am shutting down the computer, that
is when I hear "welcome to backup and sync not responding:"
I just don't understand what this problem is all about, and why the
program cannot just open.
What can I do about this problem.
I use Windows 7 32Bit.
The problem is not with the browser, because I've tried it out on
different browsers.
And it is also not with my antivirus program because I use Microsoft
security essential, which has it's firewall turned off.
I don't want to believe that this problem is peculiar to me alone.
Hope to read a response.
From Ibrahim.

Vocalizer has many none latin script based languages like Hebrew and Arabic. It is not free but not expensive. I think the price is close to 100 euros. If you buy the vocalizer you can download the voices for free.

Re: Synthesizer languages with NVDA?

 

Heather,

              It's not really NVDA synthesizers, per se, but synthesizers that can be used with NVDA.   Since you can't divorce the reading from a screen reader, the question is definitely on-topic.  That being said, it's a function of the synthesizer itself, not NVDA.

              Someone will know which options support the two languages you note, plus many more.  Egyptian and Saudi Arabic as well as Hebrew are supported by Microsoft's OneCore synth, which one can definitely use with NVDA.   If you want to check out other languages that might be with this synth, and you're a Windows 10 user, you can go to Settings, Time & Language, Language Pane, and activate the Add a language button then search on the languages of interest.  If they are supported for anything an entry will be returned, and then you have to check that the text-to-speech attribute is present for that language.

What was a common attitude with the technology of 20 years ago is not at all that common these days.

And with that, I am bringing this topic to a close, as it's not really NVDA related.   I will, however, reiterate my previous advice:  When you get what you think are false positives, check out what virustotal.com has to say, and if the conclusion is that it is a false positive report to your own scanner's support that it's kicking a false positive.  They do happen and it's via reports of the same that they get fixed.

Agreed. when I had to deal with a firewall software on the Mac, the driver was not accessible, so I talked to the developer and they said they would not consider making the firewall, accessible as a screen reader was a security risk. Now tell me how's that again, and yes, I have seen this under windows, Android, Mac and other platforms that I have dealt with in my almost 20 years of computing, ever since I was about 6.

Re: Problem with supposedly fillable PDF forms

 

Janet,

            You must use the "Reply to Sender" link at the bottom of a message if you intend to send any attachments to anyone, as they are not permitted on the list and will be stripped off if sent directly to the list address.   This is something that all members need to know if they intend to exchange information via attachment.  If an attachment is on a message sent to the group posting address it will never be seen.

            Either use the Reply to Sender link or host the file somewhere and include the link to same if you want to share something with the whole list.  I'll be watching for a separate e-mail message just to me with the file attached.
