Re: word skipping pages

Do you know what a view of the document you are using? This happens to me when the document is in print view. If you set it back to normal view, it usually solves the problem for me. Sile

Re: Norwegian 8 dot braille table used by nvda

 

Hi,
Does the proposed table have issues of its own? If there are more issues with the proposed braille table than the one NVDA uses now, I'm afraid we may need to use the current table. The hex value indicates unassigned character/braille dot patterns.
I advise alerting Liblouis people about this.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hello, list!

For a long time there has been trouble with the Norwegian 8 dot computer braill table used by nvda:

- Bullets and othe characters are represented by the typical \xxxxx
garbage.

In liblouis there is a corresponding table which is an extended version of the table that are used currently.

Could you please use the table no-no-8dot.utb instead of no-no-comp8.ctb?

I think the change is as simple as replacing the line:

addTable("no-no-comp8.ctb", _("Norwegian 8 dot computer braille"))

with:

addTable("no-no-8dot.utb", _("Norwegian 8 dot computer braille"))

in the file brailleTables.py in the source directory.

Thanks in advance - Lars

Re: how to record audio from the computer with no mic plugged in sure could use some help.

Hi Max

Your posts are somewhat confusing.  First you say you unzipped the program but can’t use it again because you can’t find it, then you say it is installed and working.  There are 2 versions of Virtual Recorder, a portable version which you unzip and use without installation, and an installer version which is installed as a Windows program.  Which version do you now have working on your computer?

 

Cheers

I don't know how you unzip files.  if you do it properly, you should have a completely new folder, separate from the zip file, with all the files in it.  It doesn't sound to me as though you did that.  It sounds to me as though you opened the archive and ran the exe file from inside of the archive.

Since the link to the installed version came from the same site, this was, presumably, an installed version modified by Carlos.  I didn't recall there being one so whatever I may have said was regarding the version direct from the developer which evidently has accessibility problems.

 

As far as portable programs are concerned, I don't know why you had problems with the portable program but I prefer to use portable versions of programs when available.  Did you unzip the program before using it?  For those trying this or other portable programs who haven't used them before, if they come as a zip file, you must unzip the program before using it. 

 

I generally prefer to use portable programs if available.  For one thing, they are portable.  I can simply copy the folder onto a thumb drive and place a copy onto another computer if I want to use it there.  No changes are made to the system.  I always use portable versions of firefox because if the copy I'm using becomes corrupted, I can keep a backup copy of the program and simply replace the corrupted program with a copy of the backup program.  I don't have to worry about maintenance or creating a new profile or anything else.  And, as I said, I can copy it to another computer when I wish.

 

In this case, there may be one or more available features in the installed version so someone might wat to use the installed version.  I don't know what those features might be and they aren't important to me because the portable version does everything I want.  I suspect that if there are more available features they would be something minor such as being able to specify where files are saved.

Now that’s more like it.  It was the usual install experience with location, start menu, and desk top icon.  You scared me off from the installed version with all that talk about bugs.  I did a little recording and I could find the files and play them back.  Ten minutes after two and all is well.

I sent two links yesterday, one for each version.  Here is the message I sent last night:

 

Gene


Here is a link to the portable version of the program which is still available from the site where Carlos hosted useful resources.  The vollunteer who hosted the programs for Carlos is still doing so.
http://opopanax.net/download/Virtual_Recorder_Portable.zip
Presumably, this is the latest version.

 

There is an installable version, also, I assume, modified by Carlos.  I don't know if the installable version does anything the portable version doesn't do.  Perhaps it allows you to specify where you want files saved. 

 

Also, because of the problems a user reported with the installed version, presumably from the developer's site, it may be that some people have problems with the installed version that won't with the portable. version

 

Here is the link for the installable version from the same site:
http://opopanax.net/download/Setup_VirtualRecorder.exe

How do I, or anyone for that matter, tell the difference between the install and the noninstall versions.  I get it.  The noninstall version just copies the files but doesn't register the program with windows.  That must have been the one I downloaded.  I have dumped the message with the URL so will someone please send me a good URL?

Hi
Are you sure you ran the install version?  There is a non-install version as well which I gave up on because Windows Defender kept moving it into quarantine.  Under W10, I downloaded and installed the install version and have been using it without problems.  The installed version definitely shows up in the list of installed programs, and creates a desktop item.  You are better using the install version anyway as some of the features cannot be used in the non-install version.

Well, I'll bet lots of others are having the same problem but nobody wants to be the first.  OK, I'll be that person.  The virtual recorder install program didn't create an entry in the start menu or a desk top icon or an icon in the applications bar as mentioned in the readme file.  I tried to start it with the command line but that has been changed and I don't know how to access it anymore.  When I had it running after the installation I made a test recording but the directory where it said it put the recording doesn't show up in windows explorer.  Maybe I should forget it and find another program.

Yes but virtual recorder does not involve fiddling with sound card settings and is free so you can use the editor of choice.

It sounds suspiciously to me as though you have AdWare on your machine which is causing popups to appear when they shouldn't be.  do popups keep coming up as you browse?  do they come up when you are not browsing as well, when the browser is closed? 

 

It appears the advertising in the message you are discussing comes from Juno.com.  I didn't know they were still around but I just looked up the site and it is.  These appear to be commercials Juno is placing in the e-mail from third party advertisers.

As far as portable programs are concerned, I don't know why you had problems with the portable program but I prefer to use portable versions of programs when available.  Did you unzip the program before using it?  For those trying this or other portable programs who haven't used them before, if they come as a zip file, you must unzip the program before using it. 

 

I generally prefer to use portable programs if available.  For one thing, they are portable.  I can simply copy the folder onto a thumb drive and place a copy onto another computer if I want to use it there.  No changes are made to the system.  I always use portable versions of firefox because if the copy I'm using becomes corrupted, I can keep a backup copy of the program and simply replace the corrupted program with a copy of the backup program.  I don't have to worry about maintenance or creating a new profile or anything else.  And, as I said, I can copy it to another computer when I wish.

 

In this case, there may be one or more available features in the installed version so someone might wat to use the installed version.  I don't know what those features might be and they aren't important to me because the portable version does everything I want.  I suspect that if there are more available features they would be something minor such as being able to specify where files are saved.

I sent two links yesterday, one for each version.  Here is the message I sent last night:

 

Gene


Here is a link to the portable version of the program which is still available from the site where Carlos hosted useful resources.  The vollunteer who hosted the programs for Carlos is still doing so.
http://opopanax.net/download/Virtual_Recorder_Portable.zip
Presumably, this is the latest version.

 

There is an installable version, also, I assume, modified by Carlos.  I don't know if the installable version does anything the portable version doesn't do.  Perhaps it allows you to specify where you want files saved. 

 

Also, because of the problems a user reported with the installed version, presumably from the developer's site, it may be that some people have problems with the installed version that won't with the portable. version

 

Here is the link for the installable version from the same site:

Hi
Are you sure you ran the install version?  There is a non-install version as well which I gave up on because Windows Defender kept moving it into quarantine.  Under W10, I downloaded and installed the install version and have been using it without problems.  The installed version definitely shows up in the list of installed programs, and creates a desktop item.  You are better using the install version anyway as some of the features cannot be used in the non-install version.

Re: Spacebar Activates a Link While in Browse Mode

Hi,
in browse mode, space bar activates the current object within the
document. For a link this happens to be equivalent to following it.
It's just the way NVDA defines it.
Best,
Felix

Another reason for this is that enter is the command to follow a link when in forms mode. If you get in the habit of using space in browse mode, which doesn't work in forms mode, you may forget and have problems. At times, in order to successfully follow a link, you have to switch to forms mode and then follow it. It's better to use the one command intended for both uses.

I don't know why the space bar activates links, nor do I know if it does in
all cases. It isn't the documented command so you can't be sure it will
work in all intended cases.

When you are in forms mode, you are interacting directly with the browser.
Any commands you give will do what they would do if no screen-reader were
present. When you are in browse mode, you are interacting with your
screen-reader and commands are routed through the screen-reader.

Re: Java accessibility

Isaac Porat
 

Hi


I did not use this particular IDE but used Eclipse and more recently AndroidStudio both also written in Java.

I did not use Jaws for some years but at the time Java support was very poor, NVDA support is much better.

As long as you have Java installed the Java access bridge comes with it, no need to install it separately.

Sometimes for some reason it is not activated and needs to be activated manually.


Unlike the poor advice given in another message, the java updater places a message on the tray when a new version is available and if you need java, always update.

None of the browser need Java they are mostly written in C / C++.

The various security risks when running Java in the browser where fixed  few years ago and if I am not mistaken from Java version 9 add ons are not supported anymore.


Regards

Isaac

Re: how to record audio from the computer with no mic plugged in sure could use some help.

Hi Max

If you downloaded to the Downloads folder, it will probably have created a folder of the same name without the .zip extension in the Downloads folder.  To open the downloads folder, press Windows+r, type “downloads” (without the quotes, then press enter.  

 

This will open File explorer, you should find the folder in there.

Re: Spacebar Activates a Link While in Browse Mode

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

It always has been this way as far as I can tell.
As has been said in this thread, what happens in browse mode is set by the screenreader.
You will find if like me you have the 3D sounds on that the link is different in some cases and it is these that work also with the space bar from what I can tell. This is in waterfox but I'm pretty sure its on other browsers to, so there may be a subtle difference between enter and space on where you end up and the action taken depending on the link in question.

This does not happen when I am in "forms" mode. Does anyone know why this occurs?

Yes a very tonka toy option that. If you have a very slow machine and keep selecting the wrong item in explorer it can be useful so you know what is going to be copied or deleted, but on modern hardware I do not really understand the reason for having it. It just adds another click to everybody's day every time!
I guess on the desktop you could use it to make launching things a bit less knee jerk for those click everything types that keep on downloading stuff that screws stuff up but really...
Its been around at least in Windows 7.

Hi,



In Windows 10’s Windows Explorer, it may be worth hitting alt, then f, then o. This is to get to the folder options dialog, alt+t then o in Windows 7. Then ctrl+tab to “view”, then tab to the tree of options and hit u until you hear “use checkboxes to select items” or something like that. If that’s on, hit space to turn it off and hit OK. On my machines,, this clears up this issue for all folders.

HTH,

Aman

I am using a Dell SPX and am hearing the same thing. I would love to know the answer as well.

Hi,

I got NVDA set up on my new tablet. My RCA cambio with intel atom z8350 processor. But on the desktop NVDA keeps showing everything as checkboxes. When I arrow around even in file explorer nvda says

Desktop list view recycle bin checkbox selected two of five. What is going on, how do I turn this off?



Thanks,



Josh
