Oh, OK, Now I get it: it came from the broadcast industry which obviously preceded the Internet/computer/voicing programs.

Well it goes back to the old disco days. The  DJ would duck the sound of his or hers music to make announcements, so you had best ask them why they called it that. Indeed on the deck I had the control was called ducking and faded down the music and up on the microphone in a controlled and linear way. Its merely a mixing control so mixing level might be an even better term for this function but as Microsoft used Ducking themselves I have to deduce that those writing the docs are all old DJs! grin.

Now back to normal questions.

Hi Group,


Well, I'm the clown--I mean--person who mistakenly kept calling the word 'ducking' 'ducting.' I don't have good hearing and I just assumed without ever looking at it all these years that it must be 'ducting.' That seemed to make more sense.


A quick look at Wictionary shows that ducking has to do with the quick avoidance of an object, circumstance or issue. He ducked when the rock was thrown at him. The politician ducked the question put to him by an aggressive journalist.


Ducting on the other hand is the process of channeling fluid, air or some substance into a channel or multiple ducting into separate channels--such as for example 2 sound sources being seperated with one given prominence when they conflict. It would seem to me that 'ducting' would be a better choice for calling what NVDA does as well as JAWS and Apple products. They separate and make one source prominent over another.


So just how is the term 'ducking' used in this context to refer to what NVDA does? Inquiring minds want to know.

Re: not able to start NVDA using shortcut Ctrl + alt + space

Gene
 

Your subject line says alt space.  What does that mean?  Are you using the correct shortcuts?  Are you using an installed or a portable version?  Also, a setting in Windows may be preventing shortcut commands from being set.  Have you tried creating your own short cut command?

Hi

Have you checked the shortcut key combination has not been accidentally changed or removed?  Find the NVDA entry on your desktop and press alt+enter.  Tab down to the shortcut key field and check that it is set to Ctrl+alt+n, if it is not just type n then tab to Ok and press enter, if it is, press escape.

 

Cheers

Chris

Just to let you know the web site has come back on line it seemed it was a very series crash on there end. it may go up and down while they repopulate all the web sites on that server.

 

Hopefully nothing like this happens again for a very long long  ..... time again.

 

It is dated the 23rd of September so is the last update that was drop boxed to the list.

Hi

 

The website has been zipped you will need a program to unzip it. You can also do it with windows explorer but may be better to make a folder then put the files into it that is easy to find. Then it is a matter of just going to the index file with in the folder and pressing the enter key on it and use it like normal. As long as people have internet access they should be able to access audio files  etc.

 

There may be another tutorial been added on later this week so will update the link to the drop box account then.

 

I will let people know then.

 

The drop box link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/fh0ke305t6afduw/Accessibility%20Central%20Website.zip?dl=0

Hi guys

 

As you probably have noticed Accessibilitycentral.net has not be accessible and the following message comes up when you try to access one of the pages Website is temporarily down due to file system failure. Recovery is in progress, please check back later. Sorry for inconveniences

.

 

The people we host with were alerted when i first noticed it and it has to be fixed on there end. I do not know when it will be back up but hopefully it is ASAP.

 

I guess this is maybe what you get some times when you host with a free provider? with no adds and only have to pay for the domain name.

 

It sounds pretty serious like the server hard drive took a dive?

 

If any one wants to access the material on it at present I can zip it up and drop box it until it comes back on line.

This will only be the website files not the audio files as every one has access to the internet mostly.

 

You will then need to unzip it and put it into a folder with the files. Then it is a matter of just accessing the index file for the website.

 

I might again even look at other options for hosting.

 

Let us know and can drop box to the list.

Locking of threads and a comment not posted to the poll thread due to it.

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

Please folks do not add to this, but I could not see this comment in that thread and as its locked it bounced. I could not find a post in that thread saying it had been locked either, which is a pain.

Anyway I said the comment below. I am posting this and some other replies in the chat sub group under the subject what about add ons when we go python 3? So comment there.
I'm noting here to our moderators and others who might be developers that
I bet the huge response here was bigger than that on the form for nvaccess
to concentrate on. It shows the power of direct discussion on a list over
just putting up a response form and plugging it every few weeks.


There is a genuine worry that Python 3 is going to break a lot of add ons
and as Joseph said a lot of issues over the legality of people working on
others code who cannot now be traced. I guess something like the Marakesh
treaty for software is needed here!
After all we run the risk of people being in two camps the python 2 camp who won't update since their favourite add on won't run in the python 3 version and the rest.

Re: So Why Is It Called Ducking Anyway?

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

Well it goes back to the old disco days. The DJ would duck the sound of his or hers music to make announcements, so you had best ask them why they called it that. Indeed on the deck I had the control was called ducking and faded down the music and up on the microphone in a controlled and linear way. Its merely a mixing control so mixing level might be an even better term for this function but as Microsoft used Ducking themselves I have to deduce that those writing the docs are all old DJs! grin.

Now back to normal questions.

Hi Group,


Well, I'm the clown--I mean--person who mistakenly kept calling the word 'ducking' 'ducting.' I don't have good hearing and I just assumed without ever looking at it all these years that it must be 'ducting.' That seemed to make more sense.


A quick look at Wictionary shows that ducking has to do with the quick avoidance of an object, circumstance or issue. He ducked when the rock was thrown at him. The politician ducked the question put to him by an aggressive journalist.


Ducting on the other hand is the process of channeling fluid, air or some substance into a channel or multiple ducting into separate channels--such as for example 2 sound sources being seperated with one given prominence when they conflict. It would seem to me that 'ducting' would be a better choice for calling what NVDA does as well as JAWS and Apple products. They separate and make one source prominent over another.


So just how is the term 'ducking' used in this context to refer to what NVDA does? Inquiring minds want to know.

PS, yes but remember at the moment at least nvdais a32 bit program and it seems to occupy one core most of the time.
Thus if your machine has its settings set to throttle back the processor speed when its not very busy, some problems do occur on lag.

Well it depends on your system what it is, the speed of the processer, and what you have loaded.

Now as a blind person I have only what I need.

So, things like drivers for my realtech and other multimedia card if they control effects etc, can be headphones, etc.

Mice if you need those loaded, microsoft and logitech spring to mind.

Antivirus and security, and any updaters you deem you want running.

If you need it, cloud programs and those can get a bit hairy to keep loaded.

Sadly sightlings need skype and itunes loaded and you may need that to if you use skype regularly and or have an i device and those can be big programs.

Take all you load at startup into account then the speed of your system and see if you need all of that and nvda loaded.

For example my system can handle all the program addons I ever need, maybe more but I don't push it over the 30 I have loaded or so.

If you want to use a synth those can get big, if its not espeak or windows itself that is.

Memmory is another thing to but even so, its system spaciffic.

If you use a low spec system only load what you need.

A higher spec system load what you want but realise some stuff will be slower.

Remember every service you load is a program, definitely anything that has a interface is a program.

Nvda is a program.

One thing I do when maintaining a computer say a sightling system which is low grade and will crash if I load more than 1-2 programs, I always ilimonate nvda from the equasion, because nvda itself is a program.

The sighted user may handle 2 programs fine but maybe not 3 or 4.

Windows 10 likes to load programs, turning off all the background apps you except what you need is a good start.

Then follow that with startup programs.

I assume win8 is the same.

with 7, I have been able to turn off a lot more and get away with it.

And in xp you can vertually not load anything at all at startup including systray and still have a usable system.

And below xp win 98 and back to 95 especially, you could have everything not load at startup and still get speech.

But you can't do that no more though.

Re: Questions About Add-ons

Well as I mentioned in the thread called Poll, the add on for speaking clipboard commands intelligently does cause slow downs in the system and on some software, windows errors like memory issues. However many do not see this, and I strongly suspect the effect is to do with interaction with software I may use rather than what others have used, so I think the answer is definitely yes.

Subject: [nvda] Announcement of “Filed” Status


When one reads through the list of email messages in Microsoft Outlook (2013), a number of attributes (probably the correct term is “header fields”) are announced, e.g., “From,” “Received Date,” “Attachment Presence,” and “Size.”
On our firm’s system, we also have a “Filed Status” indication that either reads “Yes” or “No.”
If I manually read the cells, Outlook messages are presented in table format), I find that this status indication is presented in what NVDA calls column 6.
This “Filed” status indication is the second most important feature, for my purposes.
I have moved it up in Outlook, and JAWS reads it fine. I cannot, however, get NVDA to read it automatically as I arrow up and down through the inbox. I think I am missing something.
Any assistance would be appreciated.


Re: Announcement of “Filed” Status

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

I'm not sure what you mean by filed status though. I guess one annoying thing is that Jaws does a lot of things differently. It will no longer read the read status of emails yet it does read the filed status. I'm confused. These attributes in Microsoft software seem to have been a bugbear for many years changing a bit and throwing off routines put in to find them and read them.
One has to remember here that Jaws is still installing a screenscraper driver whereas NVDA does not.

Re: So Why Is It Called Ducking Anyway?

Quentin Christensen
 

Just as he ducked when a rock was thrown at him, the volume level of the music "ducks" when NVDA has something to say.

With NVDA you can set it to duck other sounds only when NVDA is speaking, always, or never - the comparison to the rock example works particularly for the first of those options.

Re: saving a list of headings

Quentin Christensen
 

You could also open NVDA's speech viewer, jump to the top of your document then move through with H, then copy that block out of the speech viewer.

Re the User Guide, here is the link to the section on the elements list: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#ElementsList

It does simply mention that there are radio buttons to move between the sections without going step by step into moving between element types.  If you would like something that goes into more depth on moving around the elements list, and most other features of NVDA, I would recommend the "Basic Training for NVDA" module, available from the NV Access shop: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

Thanks for your very helpful notes, Rick,

 

I did not realise that so many categories were available to be listed under NVDA + F7 nor that I could select the different categories. I could not find any advice on this feature in the NVDA user manual. If I have missed it, could you point me to the entry in the manual for future reference?

 

To answer your question, I need to collect all the headings in a document that I need to re-organise. The paragraph contents under the headings are perfect but the way the document is structured badly needs reworking. In my setup NVDA does not say anything about levels such as you describe. I simply get the text of the headings but no idea what level they are at. Since you do get these levels, I suppose there must be some control that I have turned off somewhere that enables the levels to be spoken. Can you clarify that for me?

 

I should mention that I am using NVDA2019.1.1 runnign in Windows 10. I use Office 2016 for spread sheets, documents and mail and Firfox for internet access.

Hello Cearbhall:

 

Did you mean NVDA+F7 to open the elements dialog?

 

This brings up a list of elements which are grouped in categories. For example, when browsing the web, the categories are:

  • Links
  • Headings
  • Form fields
  • Buttons
  • Landmarks

 

In the headings group, NVDA announces levels instead of heading numbers. Level 0 corresponds to Heading1, Level 1 corresponds to Heading2, etc. When using the up and down arrow keys to navigate the list of headings, NVDA announces the level at the end, except when the level changes. Then it is announced at the beginning. For properly nested headings, you can collapse and expand the list using left and right arrow keys. NVDA announces if the level is collapsed or expanded.

 

I am not sure why you need the extra verbosity for links, since when viewing links in that category, only links are present. NVDA even announces if a link has been visited. Same for buttons and landmarks.

Hi,

 

I can see that NVDA + F6 lists elements including headings, links and so on. However, the list does not identify what each element is as I scroll down through the elements. I would like to hear NVDA say heading 1, Heading 2, or even link when each element is highlighted in the list.

 

Is there a setting somewhere that allows me to turn on this verbosity? If so, I cannot find it but I would welcome your advice.

 

Is it possible to save the elements list as a text file that I can use for other editing purposes?

Re: Questions About Add-ons

 

Richard,

           There is always the potential for issues, but I have experienced few in practice.  Even with that, it is as simple to remove an add-on as it is to add it.  They truly are what their name implies, and can be "peeled away" as easily as they are applied.

            If worse came to absolute worst, you can always uninstall NVDA, nuke all folders it uses if you want to be really anal-retentive, and reinstall it.

Google Analytics accessibility

Blaster
 

I've been using Google Anaylitics for years and for the most part NVDA
has been useful in navigating about 60% to 70% of the available
options. For all of the accessibility work that has gone into the
Google docs and sheets the Google team has done nothing in regards to
Google Analytics or it's companion Search console. The Google forums
go back 10+ years and have had little tracktion on the topic, So, Has
there been any buzz about an NVDA add-on for helping to access
inaccessible controls or to make use out of the layered link
structure. I've become familiar with the menu structure so I'm fairly
able to find what I need, but it's become almost impossible to do
anything substancial. I won't go into detail because it's off topic,
but I'd be interested to know if I'm just in the minority here since
website statistics is a niche interest. By the way, all you need is a
g-mail account and you can access analytics.google.com, obviously much
of the menu structure becomes available after linking an active
website, but if you'd like to poke around it's totally free.

Any thoughts would be welcome, TIA,
Blaster
