Re: some messages are very slow in Outlook

Bob Cavanaugh <cavbob1993@...>
 

Another email program isn't an option for this, as the messages in
question have already been sent to my account using Outlook. I have
since switched most of my emails to the account I'm posting from now,
where I am currently, and have always, used the Gmail web interface.

messages to use HTML for such things as formatting, but doesn't allow
anything to run or any HTML to do anything in a message except that which

displays formatting and which allows you to follow links.

Bob,

I have seen this and suspect the problem is the HTML markup of the messages.

Uber's messages would have some very cluttered HTML and perhaps javascript
which could be slowing NVDA down.

Re: NVDA not reading books in kindle book viewer

Alexandre Alves Toco
 

As far as I know, there is no way to list books with screen reader support. And even worst, you may buy a book with screen reader support and they update the book and the new version is not screen reader enabled.

I had a hard dispute with amazon because it happened with 2 books I bought.

After a while, the screen reader support was restablished.

Hello!


I think the company was mine... Tiflotecnia, Lda., maker of one of the Vocalizer Expressive versions available...

No, we will not sell your voice without talking with you...


The voice works very well and it is really expressive!

All of these questions are good questions, and I will try to answer them all right now. The reason it is so good for only 5 dollars is because I want a very good TTS voice that anyone who needs it or wants it can use, but not have to spend a lot of money. It is a real TTS voice, not me talking. I recorded 755 long phrases to make the voice, and that's why it's so good. I already had a customer earlier but it was a company. I don't know why a TTS voice company wanted to buy my voice, but as long as they aren't planning on selling it, I guess it's OK. The person who said I wanted to get started and that I am a young creator is right. I am just getting started. The good news is that you don't have to use NVDA to use the voice, as it is SAPI5. I don't have a lot of money, that's why I couldn't make an add-on for NVDA. I haven't the slightest clue where to even begin with creating an add-on by myself. I hope my answers helped. However, I have one more thing to say. I don't think it's right to get suspicious about something that was just started. If someone gave a bad review, that would make sense. However, for people to keep making other people think that it's bad is not acceptable until there is evidence there is something bad. I hope that company who bought the voice from me for 5 dollars can tell you that it works and they can even post a video of them using it if they want to. Thanks.

Anyway, go to Tools, Options, General, and navigate to the level 1 heading "incoming messages". Right below that are checkboxes that tell Thunderbird how you want to be notified when new mail arrives. One of them is "play a sound".

There are one or two things to know to make working with the options interface much more accessible.  I'll explain them if you wish.

When you have finished working in options, close it with control f4, not alt f4.  Control f4 will return you to the main program window.  Alt f4 will close the program and when you open it again, you will be in options again.

The reason you need to use control f4 is because options is a tab, not a separate window in this program.

No trick, really, just use the NVDA pass-through command  (NVDA+F2) that tells NVDA to ignore what comes next and pass it through to the application.

Shortcuts in GMail

Arno Schuh
 

Hi,
at work we now use Google Work Space. That comes with GoogleMail. GoogleMail offers shortcuts after activation.
When I read the instructions how to use these shortcuts it was pretty clear, that some of the shortcuts will not work, because the shortcuts and hotkeys are already in use on my system.
But probably there is a trick how it works with NVDA?
If so, how did it work?
Did I need a profile to get it running? Or something else? Checking a checkbox in the options menue of NVDA?

Any help is appreciated.

Yours sincerely

Arno

Re: No speech when running NVDA.

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi Ari


If you have sounds when you go to start nvda does it make a sound then go quite? If you use the windows key + letter D will it talk on the desk top. as at times when it goes to the task bar people think it is not working.

Using the arrow keys will speak out any thing there.


You might have speech mode turned off If this is the case use the nvda key + letter S to toogle it to speech mode talk.



You can also reset nvda back to factory defaults if it comes up or use the shortcut nvda key + ctrl key + the letter R 3 times unless you do it through the menu.

but make sure if you do this after you go through the menu to load it at startup etc this is the one you get whenn you do a fresh install of nvda with setting desktop etc.

make sure  you get this message. You might have to restart nvda for it to come up.

Hopefully that fixes the problem.


I am guessing the nvda.ini file might of got corrupted some how.


If this is the case I think you said you uninstalled nvda from the computer there is another place to delete the settings from.


Press the windows key + the letter R then type in the following %appdata% then press the enter key. It will give you a list of folders locate the nvda folder then delete it out then use the alt key + f4 key to close that screen .


That nice fresh copy of nvda install that to the pc and it should be right to go.


You might have to use another screen reader narrator will do the trick to do the above mentioned or a pair of eyes.

Hello, everyone,


I recently started having this issue--probably a few days ago. I've
done everything I can think of, save updating Windows 10 to the
absolute latest version--though I don't think that should make that
much of an issue, since I'm only on the release before this latest
update. Anyhow, here's my issue. I was running NVDA when all of a
sudden, it stopped speaking. I booted up Narrator and exited NVDA then
tried to bring up NVDA again, with no luck. I then tried restarting
the computer, and still nothing changed. I left the computer alone for
a few days, but when I came back to it today, I still had the same
problem. I figured, at this point, that I had nothing to lose, and
uninstalled and reinstalled NVDA, getting the latest version from
NVDA's website. The install screen spoke, but as soon as it was
installed, I suddenly had no speech. I have no idea what I can do at
this point. I have absolutely no ad-ons installed, the volume is up in
the synthesizer dialogue, and I switched to ESpeak, just in case.
Absolutely nothing has worked. I know my Surface isn't muted,
obviously, because I'm getting speech both from Narrator and from
JAWS.

Does anyone know what this issue could possibly be? I'm extremely
frustrated. I haven't used JAWS in quite a long time, and rather
dislike it. The caps lock key no longer works as the JAWS key for a
laptop, and I really miss the synth ring. Also, I feel like JAWS isn't
as good on the web as NVDA. I had to get my husband's help with
accepting the terms of service for a public WiFi network, because I
couldn't even use the stupid JAWS cursor because of the aforementioned
caps lock JAWS key issue. I would have had no such issue with this
webpage with NVDA. If I couldn't navigate to it with the standard
keys, I could most-likeley have gotten to it with Object Nav. Arrowing
through the page with JAWS just got me to some explanatory text, and
the stupid accept terms of service checkbox, but never to the button
to finish the process of connecting. Anyhow, I'm hoping someone has
some suggestions.


Thanks,
Ari

It's part of your subscription, but you still pay for that subscription, and

Amazon and the publisher.
