Dear inamuddin,

As a screen reader I’m using NVDA. And as an operating system, I have windows 10 version 1803.

Regarding skype version, does it makes difference if it would be 8.29.0.50 and not 8.30.0.50?

Many thanks for your efferts to help me sort out this problem.

Regards

Anthony

Hello folks

As the old version of skype stopped running, even the shortcuts that we used to use aren’t any longer used for other new versions.

If there is someone that is using one of the latest skype version for pc. I would be very greatful if he send me the version number and the shortcuts to use it please, I really appreciate it.

One tricky thing I find with Emoji is that different platforms have different icons for them so things can look quite different.  Sometimes I hear NVDA describe an emoji and my first reaction is "Really? Is THAT was that thing is meant to be?"

Hi Paul,

Press WINDOWS+. or WINDOWS+; to open the emoji panel, then either right
arrow through the items in the current section, press tab to move to the
sections and arrows to choose a new section, or start typing to search for
emoji, eg "cake"
🍰, "Smiling" or "firetruck" 🚒 (as with many other
search fields, you don't necessarily have to type the full thing - I typed
"fire" to narrow the results down to a handful to get the fire truck).

Press ENTER to insert your chosen emoji, and escape to close the panel.

Regards

Quentin.

best forum members,

I have downloaded the nvda 2018.3 rc1 and put it into use.

but I am not entirely positive, there is still something here and there.

Like, I have already experienced a number of times, that I used the

emoticon add-on, often it goes well but suddenly without any apparent

reason it gets stuck.

With alt tab I can then go back to the text where I wanted to place an

emoji.

but it is not going well. Only after I have restarted nvda again can I

place an emoticon again.

are there more people who have the same problem?

with nvda 2018.2 I did not have these problems.

do I have to update the emoticon add-on?

is it available?

with a curious greeting

So he had to uninstall the older version 15 and I got my sound back. I did install the add on but is there another program that would work in recording music or whatever from the computer that does work with NVDA I did try audacity but no luck there. How about gold wave and since am on windows 10 with the latest update from the spring 2018 update to the current version what would work as to what I have it is getting harder to find anything that is accessible. So any help would be awesome. Thank you.

I was under the impression that windows 10 did not need the patch since rudimentary audio drivers were loaded just as in start with network. I have patched windows 7 successfully recently I had to use a bit of turning off uac and use the admin account to install the patch, but as you say it might be more complicated for 10, but if its not required....

I've also had similar issues in my venerable Outlook Express patched for windows 7. If You go to desktop then back you here things talk again. It only seems to sometimes happen the first time you use outlook or in my case Outlook Express, but its very hit and miss. I might go days with no problems.

Deleting comments in word

Akshaya Choudhary
 

When i locate a comment in word and press the application key to interact with it, no option regarding editing or deleting the comment shows up. however, if I do the same while positioning the cursor in the comment frame itself, using the review ribbon in word, the options are available. In brief, my context menu, which appears after pressing the application key, doesn't show the option for editing or deleting the comment. I have crossed checked the mark ups are visible in the document and are even identified by NVDA.
anybody facing the similar issue? Any suggestion is welcome.

Now a number of people here use other screenreaders on the same machine,
and normally if one shuts one down and starts another and then goes the
other way, all works fine, however this evening as the old joke goes , a
funny thing happened on the way back to nvda from Jaws.
I always try to keep things up to date of course, and tonight I ran Jaws,
for which I have a licence obtained very cheaply in a sale. This so far has
meant a couple of major updates, but this evening not having run it for
some days, I did yet another update. All seemed to go well and I tested it
and saw no real difference. I then closed it and ran nvda.
What happened next was strange and I have now duplicated it three times.
Nvda could not read the menu you get when you go to shut down the pc with
alt/f4, it could not read the menus of Firefox and many other programs, nor
did it take single key entry to the desktop icons and say for example
Waterfox when I hit w.
The solution to this turned out to be control alt delete and on the
protected desktop picking cancel, whereupon everything was sweetness and
light.
I have to stress that before the Jaws update, nothing like this was the
case. Now I'm not saying that its a deliberate ploy to sabotage nvda, but it

does make me think that Jaws is not leaving windows as it found it, so
please beware. If this happens to you its not nvda playing up, just windows
left in a strange state by Jaws.
Note I am using Windows 7. I notice that Jaws has a major update for Skypes
cock ups, erm improvements sorry..

except for the paragraph beeps.
Then the problems arose where ZT would no longer read be sentences.
I think the paragraph beeps were there all along, but indeed could have been
a conflict between the two programs.
I'm told that the Win10 magnifier is pretty good. maybe when I upgrade to
it, I can abandon ZT and relably use NVDA again.

Larry,
Were you also complaining about issues with the ZoomText reader recently not
behaving as expected. If so, did both issues start at the same time as far
as you can tell? I don't have any additional ideas, but perhaps the two are
related.

Take care,

Jonathan Cohn

Thanks John. I'll give that a shot. Just thought someone might have an idea as to why I couldn't get the registry patch to install.

I hyphenated text-to-speech, and that worked for me, Janet. Hope that helps.

Hi Manish,
It seems that this case is covered by issue #7498.

Hi,

I tried using the windows one core voice with NVDA today. I tried
increasing the rate of speech but even at 100% the rate was slower
than I would like.

The same voice, Microsoft David, can be set to a much faster rate when
using narrator. With narrator, I could get David to speak almost as
fast as espeakNG.



Has anyone else noticed this and figured out a way around this?



Regards,

Manish

Re: windows one core voice max rate

Abbie Taylor <abbietaylor945@...>
 

This only seems to affect Microsoft David. When I adjusted the rate in the Windows text-to-speech settings to 100%, the rate in the NVDA preferences stayed at 50%. I increased the speed to 60%, but I don't understand how adjusting the text-to-speech rate makes any difference.
