Hi All,

For those of you using zotero, do not update to the latest update released on april 11. It brakes the reading of lists in folders. NVDA anounces grid unavailable, and plays the error sound.

Winamp Time Markers 1.1

Winamp Time Markers allows you to create time markers/bookmarks for the file currently playing in Winamp. You can create and restore markers for multiple files. You can also create multiple markers for the same file.

Selecting
"Create Marker"
will allow you to instantly create a marker for the currently playing file. The file can also be in pause mode. You can add a file which is stopped as well, but in this case it will basically act as a favorite and play from the beginning when it is selected. You will be prompted to type a name for the new marker. You can either type a name or leave it blank to use the title of the file currently loaded in Winamp. After you have added one or more markers, they will appear on the pop-up menu when you access it via the assignable global hotkey. Selecting a marker from the menu will load the associated file into Winamp and then start playback at the saved position. If the file is already loaded or playing, it will simply start playback at or jump to the saved position.

When the listview in the main window has focus, you can use the Delete key to delete, F2 to rename, Control+Up-Arrow to move up, Control+Down-Arrow to move down, and Enter to jump to the selected marker. You can use Control+M to create a marker and Control+J to jump to the selected marker even when the list does not have focus. Control+T will hide or minimize the program to the system tray depending on the settings. You can configure the folder where Winamp is located in the
"Settings"
dialog if you did not use the default installation folder.

In addition to the global hotkeys which you can assign in the
"Settings"
dialog, there are some hotkeys which will work only when the Winamp main window has focus.

\ Create a marker and use the current Winamp title as the marker name.
Shift+\ Create a marker and prompt for the marker name.
Control+\ Activate the Winamp Time Markers pop-up menu.

Additional Notes:

1. All markers are saved in the same folder as the program in a plain text file named
Markers.txt

2. By default the program is installed in the folder
C:\WinampTimeMarkers
You can change the installation folder during setup, but be aware that if you install it into the
Program Files
folder, the program may have problems writing to the directory due to insufficient permissions.

3. Do not attempt to use the program while multiple instances of Winamp are running. I have not tried to account for this yet so you will probably experience unpredictable results. Although if you create a marker using any of the hotkeys while a specific instance of Winamp is the active window, it will use that instance as the source for a new marker.

Finally, I wrote this over the last couple of days so there may still be unforeseen behavior and bugs.


Announcements about updates to Winamp Time Markers and my other projects will be posted on the Tech Talk mailing list.

I looked at the information for the NVDA Winamp add-on. It doesn't have the ability to create and work with bookmarks, or whatever else you might want to call them such as time markers. That doesn't mean that no one has devised something, but a Google search showed no such results.

If you want to use Winamp, you may. I don't know about other programs such as VLC player. This requires a few steps but it is very logical. Also, there is an NVDA Winamp add-on. I don't know what different functions it has.

To do this mmanually, do the following:
When you are at the point where you want to make the bookmark, pause play by pressing c.
Open the Winamp jump to time dialog, control j.
You are in a field that shows the current time position you are in.
NVDA says selected. That means you don't have to select it. Simply use control c to paste it to the clipboard.
Paste the time into a Notepad file and save it with whatever name you want wherever you want.
The next time you want to resume reading and use the manually created book mark equivalent, open the Notepad file, select the time with control a for select all, and copy it to the clipboard.
Close Notepad if you wish.
Start the file playing in Winamp. Pause it so you can hear your screen-reader easily.
Open the jump to time dialog, control j.
Paste the time in with control v.
Press enter.
You are now at the place where you want to resume.

This may sound like a lot of steps but they are very logical and use concepts, such as copy and paste that are commonly used in Windows and Windows programs. If you try this two or three times, you may find it is much easier than it may sound when reading.

Re: is there any voice similar or close to the ETI eloquence english voice

Gene
 

This is subjective and you may get many opinions.  I've seen claims that this or that voice is similar or can be made similar using the right settings but I've found none that is nearly comparable.  But since you are asking for free voices, you can, of course try them with no worries about paying or when they will time out.
 
I can't comment on the One Core voices.  I don't use Windows 10 and I'm not sure if they can be made to work in earlier versions.  How comparable they are to Eloquence, I don't know, but you may want to try them.  I've heard a number of people say they like them.  They are free.

Well I took this from a download I got from an earlier thread on this list. Its a stand alone bit of software and if you want to know more the contact details are at the end onf that read me file. I only used it once for a project I wanted it for and it worked but seemed a little clunky.
I guess it is a stand alone marker and hence not integrated into winamp.

Pascal,

            It will be helpful if you can get specific about which Office program (or programs) you're having issues with, as there are a few things that may apply to all of them, but most will be specific to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.

            As Sarah has mentioned, there is actually a lot of material on the group archive regarding all of the various Office programs and NVDA.  Office 365 is directly based on Office 2016, so at the individual program controls level the two should be virtually identical.

            If you wish to search the archive, located at https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/topics, there is a Search button at the very top of the page.  There are two important notes about doing searches on Groups.io (probably more, but these are the biggies):  If you are looking for something like Word 2016 make sure to enter it within quotes, otherwise you'll get every message that has either the word "word" or 2016, rather than someone mentioning "Word 2016".  The search results are also initially returned at the individual message level, which isn't particularly helpful, at least to me,others prefer it.  I far prefer to see topics.  To make that happen, activate the "Tools" button, check the "collapse topics" checkbox and, voila, the search results are now shown as topics.

            One thing I've written up with regard to using Office that many seem to find useful is:  Adjusting Protected View Settings in MS-Office Programs
I cannot stand having these on by default and have disabled them in every Office program so that I'm not being endlessly nagged.  And those warnings are even more annoying when using a screen reader.  I only open attachments produced using MS-Office from sources I know I can trust, so I do not need nor want protected view.   This little reference document I threw together might prove helpful, too:  It contains a list of direct links to the Microsoft webpages with the keyboard shortcuts for each one of the major Office suite programs, which covers all the recent versions.

while making manual entry. even, NVDA does not read drop-down list of
sources? Please address my concern.

Re: HELP! LOST ALL MY ADD-ONS!!!

 

Clarissa,

           The latest Windows 10 update that has been released was Version 1809.  The spring 2019 release has not occurred yet, and will not until May 2019, and that's if it isn't delayed again.

           I would very strongly suggest you contact the Microsoft Disability Help Desk as soon as possible on (800) 936-5900.  If you were running Version 1803 and this was the 1809 update, it can probably be rolled back.   It should not have caused this issue with NVDA if it worked normally.   It is critical that you figure out what's going on in regard to your Windows situation before anyone can move on to giving you good advice regarding how to proceed, or not proceed, with NVDA.

HELP! LOST ALL MY ADD-ONS!!!

Clarissa Mitchell
 

Earlier today, I turned my computer on, and it was running so slowly,
and seemingly wasn't doing anything. So I shut it down, when I turned
it on again, I was greeted with a "Welcome to Windows" page in
Microsoft Edge. Apparently, I just got the big April update and didn't
even know it! But what really took the cake was when I discovered that
NVDA had reverted to the Windows one-core voices, and all my add-ons
are gone! I also lost some of my Desktop shortcuts! Not all of them
though. Can I do a system restore, or do I have to re-create all those
shortcuts and re-download all my add-ons? I thought I had a portable
copy of NVDA on a flash drive somewhere, but apparently I don't. Any
help would be appreciated. Thanks.


Re: Adding Time-Stop Marks to Audio Tracks

there is a very small mp3 player which also can be used to speed up the reading of books and it does to some extent remember where you left off.

You find it by using the send to menu, and "play" the file with it. F5 speeds up, f4 slows back down and f10 is the menu. It is in Italian, however. Called "play this."

If you want to use Winamp, you may.  I don't know about other programs such as VLC player.  This requires a few steps but it is very logical.  Also, there is an NVDA Winamp add-on.  I don't know what different functions it has. 
 
To do this mmanually, do the following:
When you are at the point where you want to make the bookmark, pause play by pressing c.
Open the Winamp jump to time dialog, control j.
You are in a field that shows the current time position you are in.
NVDA says selected.  That means you don't have to select it.  Simply use control c to paste it to the clipboard.
Paste the time into a Notepad file and save it with whatever name you want wherever you want.
The next time you want to resume reading and use the manually created book mark equivalent, open the Notepad file, select the time with control a for select all, and copy it to the clipboard.
Close Notepad if you wish.
Start the file playing in Winamp.  Pause it so you can hear your screen-reader easily.
Open the jump to time dialog, control j.
Paste the time in with control v. 
Press enter.
You are now at the place where you want to resume.
 
This may sound like a lot of steps but they are very logical and use concepts, such as copy and paste that are commonly used in Windows and Windows programs.  If you try this two or three times, you may find it is much easier than it may sound when reading.

Are you using Winamp with JAWS or NVDA?  JAWS has a feature that allows you to make a book mark although that isn't part of the actual program.  I don't know if NVDA has an add-on that does this.  Whether it does or not, you can manually make the equivalent of one. If you want, I'll explain how.

Karen,

What app are you using to read the audio book. Most that I have used have their own bookmarking feature.

Hi Brian,

Appreciate your reply.
Yes I have tried object and screen navigation.
It is definitely poorly written.

Thanks,
Jim.

Well if you have the program name and can point a developer or add on writer at it then you may get some replies. I've never used it but from your description it sounds like its not a proper windows bit of software and that nvda therefore finds it hard to figure out what is on the screen.
Have you explored it with object and screen navigation to see if any of the key buttons, menus or edit fields can be seen by nvda that way?

Hi all,

Does anyone use a Dymo label printer? The only way I can find to enter
text in a label is to use the mouse to click in the label. I guess I’m
lucky enough to have enough sight to be able to use a mouse, However, I
want an answer for those who do not have enough sight to use the mouse.

Although I always sincerely appreciate everyone’s suggestions, I really
want to hear from anyone who actually uses the program and has solved the
problem.

Have a great weekend.

Many thanks,
Jim

Hi.

Here is the download link for the Winamp time markers 1.1 installer.

http://opopanax.net/download/Setup_WinampTimeMarkers.exe


logging into telegram with nvda?

I'm BCcing this to the nvda chat group just in case but here are the steps I'm taking

  1. Launch chrome. I have the same trouble with Firefox
  2. Go to web.telegram.org
  3. Put your phone number in.
  4. click next
  5. Try to click the "OK button. I cannot do this, yet other people I know have done this successfully. I've tried
  6. 1 object navigation
  7. 2 screen review
  8. 3 document review
  9. 4 routing and left clicking with the result that nvda says "there is no object here" or "object has no location"
  10. 5. Left clicking with the mouse after trying to rout
  11. 6. Trying to use narrator with the result that that dialogue never reads.

So does anyone have any tips here? I cannot do a video as my phone number will be revealed and I don't want that.

Thanks.
Blessings and happy Sunday
