Re: Alex voice from the mac with NVDA?

I don’t know how you’d run the Apple voice running a Boot Camp version of Windows that is using the Alex voice for your window screen reader
Are use both operating system is Windows and Apple and they are quite different to each other
And the screen readers are different as well

Hi folks.

I have a mac mini, and am running windows on it viea bootcamp.

I thought I remember a addon that would let you use the alex voice with NVDA?

I no there was 1 that only worked when there were certon words, but I think this one works using something with the command line, although I could be wrong.









Re: nvda on and off short cut.

What do you mean by turn on and off.  Do you mean stop and start speech while the program continues to run?  Do you mean put the program to sleep so it isn't running while you are using a specific application or do you mean unload NVDA and then run it again when you want to run the program?

Unless you just want to suppress speaking of course, which still leaves the program running, just not talking.
Another way if you want to stop it for specific programs is to use a profile and turn the speech off when that program is running. Of course if it accesses, say Explorer it will start to speak when it does so, this can be handy or a menace depending on what you are trying to achieve.

Re: Latex with NVDA

Yes. Absulutely it is usable with nvda. Because, i prepared my phd thesis using latex. There are some example and templets regarding how to prepare latex documents. You can get these by surching in google. According to my experience, texnic centre whith miktex distribution is bit accessible for blind users to prepare latex documents. Best regards.

Re: speech viewer help

It is probably not applicable here, and it seems not to fix my dropbox dialogue issue either. I'd be rather interested in what you use speech viewer for and if you are viewing the output if it actually is doing what its supposed to even after speech stops.

Re: speech viewer help

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

Hi I've said this before, but I guess it would not be an issue to repost it.
Make a batch file in the root folder of your drive called restartwithlog.bat
It should run from the desktop though or with a shortcut to the root file. Everything between the === should be written in this file using notepad, exactly as it appears.
====
@echo off
cd "%temp%"
start /WAIT nvda.exe -q

start notepad.exe nvda.log
rem, this line just kicks its heels for a bit to make sure the log is loaded into notepad before rebooting nvda.
ping -n 5 127.0.0.1>nul
start nvda.exe

exit

====

This should force a copy of nvda to exit, then load the log file into notepad from that session, and restart nvda
Simply go up from the bottom past all the shut down stuff and you should find the bits where things went bad. Note it is advisable that you set the log level to debug in the settings of nvda before attempting this as it can make more sense to a developer.

If its a long log then crop out stuff not relevent first, then cut and paste it into a message.

Re: Firefox control buttons+Re: [nvda] Ad blocker for NVDA and Firefox?

Since a lot of us do not have windows 10, we would not see that, however I wonder if the techniques used in toolbar explorer might be applied in an add on to make operation of these buttons less of a mess?
Of course Firefox could, if they wanted make them easer to get at or give each a special hotkey defined when you install an add on.

Thanks. It appears that object navigation is the only way to go for this, and it does work like a charm.

I knew I'd had this conversation at some point in the past that was not quite yet relegated to the mists of memory, but it was not entirely resolved.

Hi.



I just started using uBlock Origin, which was already mentioned. I think it is working pretty well and have noticed it block a few things. It seems configurable through a standard web-based menu. However, there is supposed to be a big “power” button or something in the corner of the window that lets you turn it on and off directly for specific websites; I have not figured out yet how to access this button, but to be honest I haven’t spent a lot of time looking at the add-on yet.

I’m noticing more and more difficulty doing Google searches and reading websites due to ads and other clutter. Would someone be able to recommend an ad blocker which works well with the latest version of NVDA and Firefox? Perhaps another browser would work better?

Re: Ad blocker for NVDA and Firefox?

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

Well, one of the main annoyances of late is that a company or service makes a nice accessible page, but allows third party adverts which are often not accessible and screw it all up. What is needed is an ad blocker with a hot key toggle that can be disabled and re enabled at will, including the refresh required to get that page back. Since so many sites now ask you to disable the ad blocker or pay, this sort of easy way to toggle for us would be of great use i think.
At the moment I'm forever opening the add ons, toggling off the add blocker then turning it on again. OK many do allow a black or white list of sites, but it needs more micro control than that in my experience.

That's because it's a key conflict. in the laptop layout, nvda plus
