New NV Speech player release.

 

Thank computers for RSS feeds! Anyway, the below link just flew into my inbox so I wanted to share. It's a speech synthesizer that's actually legal, LOL! And is an alternative to eSpeak. Yes, before the messages fly in, I'm well aware there's other legal synthesizers. Anyway, I'm far too busy writing screen readers into my novel so click the link below and read the description yourself. Chao!

Thanks for reading! Even though my Patreon is paused you should still be able to access draft chapters and draft stories.

Re: Accessibility issues with latest potplayer, warn user not to upgrade to latest version

William Wong
 

Hi, sorry just saw your reply.

Well, I finally managed to make the setting work.

How to copy time to clipboard?

Go into setting, there is a page to configure hotkey.

In there you can add hotkey and its associated function.

Hi  William Wong,
You don't have to downgrade.
Restart potplayer several times and try f5.
When you get to preferences: find tree view, go to top, expand general, under general Skins. Press tab several times, make Context menu combox and change it to system dafult.
Context menu:  System default  
And save it.
I hope it'll get fixed.
Can you tell me how do you copy current time by pressing hotkey?

Create a portable NVDA and install remote. Set it up to autoconnect. After that, create a self-extracting archive which automatically runs it.
For example, see 7-Zip's help file for -sfx.

Actually you can run it as an admin, but i dunno if you can program the portable to auto run as admin on someoen's system.

Re: NVDA Slowing to a Crawl again in Thunderbird

Kevin Cussick
 

Right, this may or may not fix things but can't hurt.

General sluggishness with Thunderbird. I have a feeling, though,
that this is a Thunderbird issue and nothing to do with NVDA.
Try disabling Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Enable Global Search and
Indexer. Note that this isn't accessibility or screen reader specific,
but I personally found that global search didn't help me and was a
performance killer.

Is it possible that the part of the email you are reading is when in reply mode and it is the info from the senders' part?  I have found that Thunderbird puts this in a table and that table is read extremely slowly. I avoid reading this info while composing a reply  at all costs.

Re: Can I bundle the remote addon with NVDA?

Tyler Spivey
 

Then you install the portable copy onto the system with the option in the Tools menu.
You could also try running as admin after you run it the first time. If you use 2019.3, the default action of nvda.exe is to restart, so that might work.
In either case, the person at the other end will have to hit alt y when UAC dialogs come up.

Hi,
I think it might be best to zip them up into a single zip file, and have this person install the NVDA first followed by the Remote add-on.

Re: Thunderbird address page.

Daniel Hawkins
 

hmm, that is exactly what I am using.

Ok, here is a big question for everyone. Using a windows 10 computer, what email clients do you use that allow Google sync? I know the native mail and people app does that, but i feel navigation in the mail app still need some accessibility improvements before I call it reliable.

portable copy with 2019.3.1

Brian Moore
 

HI all.  This seems to be new. Always keep a portable copy of NVDA on a usb thumb drive that I carry around.  Yesterday, deleted the old one and made a portable copy of my currently running 2019.3.1 It worked but for the first time, none of the add ons I have installed came with it.  There was a portable configuration but it was default settings with no addons.


Anyone else seen this?
