Re: NVDA - Missing OneCore Voices on New Laptop

 

What I'm about to propose is not NVDA-specific, because this issue is not likely NVDA-specific.  I use MS David and it should "come with" under a correctly functioning Windows 10 installation in "out of the box" state.  That it's not there suggests a Windows 10 corruption of some sort.  And the way I'd try to solve this particular issue with missing voices is, in order:

1. Using SFC (System File Checker) and DISM (Deployment Imaging Servicing and Management) to Repair Windows 8 & 10

2. Doing a Windows 10 Repair Install or Feature Update Using the Windows 10 ISO file

Hello, Bill. Please do the folowing:
1) Go to settings (windows key + i) then to 'time & language' & press enter.
2) From there, arrow down to 'speech' & press enter.
3) Tab to the 'add voices' button & activate.
4) Arrow down through the voice languages, press spacebar on the 1 you
want, then tab to the 'add' button & activate it.

Try Reaper. I can guarantee it will do more than anything you can think up to try, and it's cheap and fully accessible.

Re: NVDA and Ardour

 

I just chhecked this thing out.


Firstly you need to pay for the full version.

Next they don't want you to compile yourself on windows just linux.

Even if you could it uses gtk.

Gtk has accessibility but basically you would have to take out gtk and use something else, its not worthh it, anyway reaper has allready something for it.

Hello.

I have noticed, that It 10 Years ago I have started to use NVDA and abandom of Jaws. Currently I am using NVDA too.

I would like to write a review about NVDA screen reader with little storry, how It begins ETC. I'll write It in Slovak (My mother tongue), but I would like to plann mostly write It in English, because English is one of world languages and NVDA was developed in Australia.

But, why I want to tell It to You? I have a blog, but maybe It'll be better to send It to another blog and edit It a little, because I am not English native speaker, althought I can communicate in English very good.

I think, that somebody will help me.

Re: Require help to convert image PDFs into text PDF documents

Luke Davis
 

If they really are image PDFs, then you will never get what you want.

If you use OCR software on them (others can suggest what OCR software is best these days; I don't use OCR packages on Windows), you can get some version of the text out of these.
For example, if I process an image PDF through KNFB reader, or one of the network based recognition apps, I can get somewhere between a 70 percent and 95 percent accurate recognition of the contents.

NVDA's built in OCR feature (NVDA+R) can possibly read these one page at a time, although it's not designed for full document recognition.

However you won't get links and headings and all of that. Software simply isn't smart enough to figure out which pictures of text are supposed to become those formatting and connective elements.

Also, while I could be mistaken about this, I don't believe an image PDF can have links.

Lastly, this is not an NVDA problem. You probably want to take this conversation to a general Windows list or the chat subgroup.
