But this will read the entire line. I seem to have already found the option I wanted to, am just wondering if it would be an expected behavior.

PS...
I'm not totally sure about how one might wish to package a user made bit of code that was installed manually into an add on. Is there a simple idiot proof way of doing this somewhere that does not need multiple dependencies and all of that, IE grab your code, shove it in a folder write xy z in a text file then run this ere exe file giving the files as arguments would be fine.

Re: NVDA 2019.1 available

Yes I have been playing around with the last tested version flags in the manifests of some of my add ons that either do not come from the normal site or have as yet, not been altered.
Most do still operate on the current newest versions, but some display warnings in the log about possible future problems with some of the python constitutes used like 3d Sound for example.
I do now use this a lot as it is very helpful in understanding screen layout, so would like to see the few issues fixed before we all go Python 3, or have issues with other parts.
I'd also like to add that I do still use quite a bit of legacy software that works well with nvda on newer versions of windows, so would value any warnings that functionality of older app modules in the nvda core would be removed or altered up front before it actually happens.

Re: Translating NVDA into Te Reo Māori option

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

Also of course all the prompts in the screenreader and often add ons would need to be translated as well.
I think as has been said, it might not be worth it if no synth supports it. I'm guessing this is New Zealand then or one of the small island clusters in that area?

Does Windows support it?

Hi


I would have to ask him. I know there used to be a synth for there language maybe he would know. Is it better for him to have a synth for there language instead of translating the user manual etc into there language? It is new to me and probably him as well.

Even the steps he would have to take.


I did find the wicki page on translating and sent that back to him while i find out more information from both sides.


They might even be able to get funding to cover translating nvda and or the synth. I will know more when he gets back to me.

What program would they have to use? Is there a easy way to do it? How would i start and also we would be new to try and do this for NVDA.


The above language is recognized in our country along side of english and sign language.


We are not programmers so it would be a matter of starting from scratch doing this.


I just hope it does not scare us off translating it into there language.

Re: Windows 10 Fast Start-up

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

Yes, I have never used the fast start, since it proved to simply make things less reliable. I know in theory its a snapshot of a working system but for whatever reason that cannot be the whole story. The best advice I can give is to get a machine with an ssd and boot normally on that. It seems far less prone to weird effects.

I'm sure Brian will discuss this but I'll give my perspective. Fast boot doesn't allow the system to reboot when you turn it off. It's as though you always used hibernate or sleep instead of doing a full shut down or doing a full reboot.

You should only use fast boot if you reboot your machine at intervals. I'm not sure how long, perhaps a number of days, perhaps a week, you can experiment. But just as you will get instability if you leave Windows running too long without a full boot or a full reboot, so to will you get instability by using quick boot and only that. For the purposes we are discussing, it amounts to the same thing.
reboot on a schedule. Reboot does do a full reboot.

Also, if you install a program and you need to reboot the computer afterwords, don't use shutdown if you use fast boot. Use the reboot command so you will get a full bootup.

Hey guys, I'm here again :)
This time the question is about... well you saw it on the subject I suppose :)
So, the thing is: I found out that pressing CTRL along with the down arrow, NVDA will read the entire line from a text, regardless if that line is broken for some reason.
However, while I just found it out, I also found out that apparently, this  option isn't described on the NVDA's keystrokes refference.
So my question: is it actually something expected, that pressing CTRL+down arrow NVDA will read the entire line? If so, why isn't it described as an option?
Or, well, what would I be missing? Can anyone point me on the right direction? :)

Funnily enough I did not get it that way, I did a manual check as I know it can, and often does, update some hours sometimes into the operation of it, and as we were on rc1, I tend to force the issue to stop it if its there. Not sure what logic governs the system of updating but it seems to be pretty random.

Re: Profiles and a suggestion

 

Yes, I'm sure, actually I just tested it before posting :)
Besides don't having the option to turn on NVDA's sleep mode, one also can't turn NVDA's silent speech mode.
One thing I forgot to mention, since I wrote that email just before falling asleep, is that it doesn't mean one can't use these options.
What happens, actually, is that when one uses these options, they affect all the other windows NVDA happen to see, rather than the one for that profile.

Are you sure about that. I have some self voicing programs where I use an add on to turn off nvda when a range of exe files are detected as in focus. I'm sure it goes back a long way, even before the official add on loading system when you could just write a bit of python and shove it in  the global add on folder.
It still seems to be working. The only oddity is that if they have a bit of code that uses resources from normal windows which requires the dialogue to load a file, for example, the nvda comes in and some of the self voicing use another method to speak as well so it can get a bit  confusing!

Hi guys,
Well I was just now playing a bit with NVDA profiles to test an add-on
called Profile Switcher, which by the way has proved to be quite useful.
However my question isn't about this add-on otherwise I'd have posted it
on the appropriated list :)
So let's go.
I noticed that when it comes to profile, one can personalize settings
for a specific window, that's the whole point of it I'd guess.
However, there isn't an option to, according with a profile, turn
on/off NVDA's sleep mode.
Why isn't there such option? Isn't it possible, would it cause problems
or something like that?
Well anyway here is my suggestion. It would be nice if we could just set
up a profile to whenever we go to a certain window NVDA automatically
could go into sleep mode.

Re: NVDA and icons in the system tray

Gene, as you know, I fully agree with you on this, and I've never ever understood why this has never been a part of core NVDA as I've always found it less buggy to use the systray add-on than the Windows methods, and other screenreaders have recognized this long ago.

With Narrator, this works as expected and the pop-up window for OneDrive appears. With NVDA however, nothing happens. A person which cannot see the screen would wonder why it is so - what is different. I have some vision left and can see what's going on. For some reason, when pressing Windows+B and the system focus gets moved to the system tray area, NVDA also moves the mouse cursor there and for some reason, that causes the failure of the execution of the command with the spacebar to simulate a single left mouse click. With Narrator and with no screen reader running, the mouse cursor does not get moved to the system tray when the system focus gets moved there and the command gets executed correctly and the OneDrive pop-up window appears as it should.

Because apparently this causes problems with some icons in the system tray. And now that I think of it, I wouldn't be surprised if the appearance of the problematic so called "Network Flyout" pop-up window under Windows 7 is caused by this behavior as well.

At one point, Amazon brought out an "accessible version" of the Kindle app,

which brought accessibility to the "standard" kindle for PC app.
Essentially, any version of Kindle since then should be accessible.

Re the website for books, I must admit, I don't read many kindle books
myself so haven't played with it much, but if there is a problem, do raise
it. If it's with the website, it's likely an issue for Amazon, but of
course it is worth us being aware of it as well.

Hi Brian


Just looking at the site for a accessible version of kindle for pc. funny
thing was on the accessibility page for it it is a very old version and
when downloaded apart from the menus was in not accessible.

I think it was like version 1.4 and 1.9 now and above is recommended.


I did read up you needed a later version of which i got but not from them
as i could not find it any where on there amazon website it seems like
you
go in circles.


the version i got now is accessible but if some one knows more of a
direct
link i will add that into the tutorial.




Would any one have a direct link to the latest version of it on there
website to download instead of searching for it off the net.

This is for the amazon website.


Just putting to together a tutorial on the basic's of using it once i
figure it out.

Or could you call it notes.


I see there are users on the list using it. I might have to sus out how
to
download other free books to or does some one on the list know how? and
what hoops i might have to jump through.

Or tips i can add into it.

Hi Don,

NVDA first got support for Kindle for PC (version 1.19 at the time) in
NVDA
2017.1, and it has improved since then.

We do have a few notes on using Kindle for PC in the NVDA user guide:
https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#Kindle

If you do have any specific questions or run into any problems, please do
let us know. Note that as per the first line in that section I linked
to,
this functionality is only available in Kindle books designated with
"Screen Reader: Supported" which you can check on the details page for
the
book.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi.  There are tons of free SFZ files you can find on the internet.  Just google for them.  I particularly like sforzando which is used by many blind musicians who use Reaper and Sonar.  You can even modify SFZ files to your liking because they are basically text files installed along side a wave file. Here is a link from where you can get more information.

Re: How to Select a Link While n Browse Mode

bestuiexperience
 

Sorry to revive this thread so late. I now have  a new link problem  (but am unable to share the link because it is under development). I am clicking on a link that actually uses JavaScript. It has an href of "javascript:void()", and has a click() event (which is also triggered by pressing the enter key) which executes a JavaScript function. The first time, the enter key is pressed the function works correctly, but the second time, focus just flies randomly to another part of the page. If I change the link to a button everything works fine, but for various reasons I want to keep it as a link. Is this an NVDA bug? Any workaround? I do not have this issue in JAWS.

This is one of the things I keep begging people to include when questions like this come up.  They are almost impossible to answer in the abstract because there are so many potential scenarios that can cause misbehavior.

Unless this is occurring somewhere like an online banking page, where one must be logged in to get to it, and involves private information, please, please, please include the URL of the page in question, and the identification for the problematic link on that page.  That's the way any of us here can examine things to get an answer that's both fast, and accurate.
