Re: dectalk express u s b

 

Yes but its 600 bucks us.

Thats more than sapi synths.

Saying that, I am seriously thinking of the tripple talk usb mini which is only 200 bucks along with the vocaliser code factory voices for sapi which I may get at a later date.

To be honest,  a general user doesn't need to have a portable synth.

However, if you are a technition like me that could use a synth and not a sound card then that may be good especially if your sound device just flatly refuses to work.

There have been situations where I didn't have my usb devices or my mergency crappy usb set for speech and it was a real pain.

I have had systems I have got repaired only to start them and find no sound.

So before I even can use whoever's system I need to reformat it because I don't get sound.

Of course I can afford only 1 or 2 synths a year.

So the tripple talk usb could be in my price range of 200 us which is my maximum.

it seems that it will work using the serial port using an adapter from u s b, but it will not work directly from a u s b connection.
I wish someone would correct this as I’d like to use the dectalk

Re: Advantages of NVDA over narrator on public terminals

 

True, and if you don't use addons or you just want to use it for certain things then that would be fine to.

Hi,


I guess you do not run a huge network like they do, and you are not having to worry about security of a network of that size. I could not see them updating NVDA 4 times a year on 400 computers every 3 months.


It is not a home network which of course you could update more regularly and also use add ons etc. I know that on the APNK network you can use your portable stable signed version which might be more up to date.


Your alternative I guess is Narrator for places who do not have NVDA. I applaud Christchurch City Libraries for their initiative to enhance accessibility for those who need audio on a computer.

I have not asked them about portable access yet. I think it is better to have a slightly older version (which will be updated at least yearly around February) that is stable than none at all.

Well thats nice, but it would actually be good if the latest version was put on all computers, and maybe have it do it automatically same with addons used etc, point is we are now in to 2018.4 what is the use to have an old crappy version.

If 18.3.2 is only just going now, users will be out of date.

I guess it doesn't matter if they are all jaws users or havn't used nvda before, but its just that roling out nvda in its current form is a waste of time now.

Hi guys,


I received confirmation a couple of days ago that NVDA was going to be installed across the Christchurch City library network. Today, I have just received confirmation via email from the person rolling it out that it has officially been rolled out! I thought it was going to be rolled out early next year, but it looks like an early Christmas present for Christchurch!

There are parts of the message below:

So … the install of NVDA version 2018.3.2 is completed on our public computers.


I aI’m happy to tell you that we have 19 libraries which all have at least one free internet computer each;

· A total of 225 free internet computers across the Christchurch City Libraries network
In addition to this we have the following types of public computers which we will also install NVDA on as part of the rollout

· 20 Childrens PCs; 30 Family History PCs; 120 Learning Centre Lab PCs


This means that NVDA is now installed at 19 libraries across Christchurch! (This is about 390 computers which are to be updated annually from now on).

https://my.christchurchcitylibraries.com/faq/computers/#faq_5895


In the link to the FAQ page (which says about accessibility options on their computers), NVDA is now on that list! You can not start it with a shortcut, however you can still start it quite easily through the search box by typing in NVDA and pressing Enter. The Windows log on option has been disabled. This is where it says Use NVDA on the Windows logon screen.


Please spread the word if you know of anyone who would find this useful when visiting Christchurch City Libraries! This is not just for blind and vision impaired, but may also assist people who have dyslexia or are ESOL.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Advantages of NVDA over narrator on public terminals



Narrator in Windows 10 is considerably more capable from discussions I've seen here than Narrator on Windows 7. I have Windows 7. Narrator is just the shell of a screen-reader in that version of Windows, alright for emergencies where you lose the use of a competent screen-reader for some reason but it would be next to useless on a public terminal because it is next to useless everywhere.



also, I know that Narrator is moving toward using more standard screen-reader commands in Windows 10. I don't know how far that move has gone but I would think that a lot more screen-reader users would regularly use NVDA. There is a certain level of reasonable access and reasonable standardization and unless Narrator has changed very dramatically recently in Windows 10, it doesn't meet those needs. Plus, from discussions I've seen here, Narrator is limited to Microsoft programs in terms of providing reasonable or something like reasonable access. Unless these public terminals provide only Microsoft programs, that is another area of inaccessibility when using Narrator. The blind user would be either fully or mostly limited to Microsoft programs on the machine. If the machine has other programs on it, it appears from discussions I've seen on list, that Narrator wouldn't work adequately, if at all.

Subject: [nvda] Advantages of NVDA over narrator on public terminals



Hi guys,



I got asked this question about the advantages of NVDA over Narrator on public terminals where ever these may be...



I am talking about public terminals that the sighted can use where ever these may be. Places like libraries, information centres airports (where these terminals are) as well etcetera. The commercial screen readers are not in the picture because of price.



The question is below:



" My question to you is what advantages would it give our blind or visually impaired customers having both Windows 10 Narrator and NVDA available to use on public computers? I would be interested in supporting installing it at if there were advantages and we could work thru any technical issues. Let me know what you think".



This same question could also come up at any IT department that is approached to install NVDA to a public terminal (where ever these may be). The above is used as an example.

I am guessing that for any technical information - that could be pointed towards the developers of the NVDA project.



They could be using a windows 7 machine right up to Windows 10.



Looking forward to your feedback on advantages of NVDA over Narrator. Thanks everyone.



Gene NZ

Interesting. You're right. When inside a frame, tabbing till you get

Chrome: things work normally except at the "We believe" heading. Tab

Re: Firefox browsing bug in NVDA 2018.4

Hi Group,


Following Tyler's steps exactly, I can confirm this on the NVDA page.

However, this seems to be something to do with the coding on the page.  When I try the same steps on jaws-users.com and microsoft.com, I cannot reproduce.

Now repeat this, but move to the second one, nvAccessLimited inside the

I'm not placed at the top again.

I assume this is a Firefox bug and not related to NVDA, because tab has
no special meaning to NVDA here, at least according to input help.

Use the headings shortcut, the letter h, to go down a couple headings.

Re: can't get vlc media player to start

you repeatedly do this.  Get rid of or say you are going to get rid of a program.  You haven't given the list sufficient time to ask about and propose possible solutions. 
 
If you really get rid of the program, let us definitely know so we don't waste time.  If you think better of it, members will still help.  But this pattern of behavior doesn't help you solve the problem nor does it do justice to those who send information or suggestions.
 
I sent a message before this one with what might be helpful information about solving the problem.  Did I send it for nothing?

Re: can't get vlc media player to start

Your message doesn't say what is or isn't happening.  You say you can't play something.  You don't say whether the program opens or what happens when you try to play the item.  Since we don't know specifically what happens, we can't address the question properly, though someone may provide a solution.  But how do we know that the player isn't muted, opening, playing the file with no sound.  We don't know if that is happening but it is important to give detailed information when presenting a problem.

Ah fantastic - ignore the email I just sent then :)

Re the dialog not reading properly - it should read ok, however it uses a different NVDA profile.  To have it read in the voice you prefer:
1) Setup NVDA as you like (synthesizer, rate, etc)
2) Press NVDA+CONTROL+C to save changes.
3) Press NVDA+CONTROL+G to open the general settings.
4) Press TAB until the focus is on the "Use currently saved settings on the logon and other secure screens" button
5) Press SPACEBAR or ENTER to activate the button.
6) If you have any add-ons, a dialog appears warning that these can be a security risk (not that there is a risk from any specific add-ons, just a general warning).  Press ENTER to accept this.
7) A UAC dialog appears.  press ALT+Y accept the prompt.

That is really unusual.  You should definitely get a UAC dialog when trying to install any program.  Actually, unless you are logging in to Windows as an administrator?  But in that case, the process would already have the privileges it needs and shouldn't fail.

Pretty much immediately after the beeping stops, I get what I’d describe as a “clang” sound and a message telling me tht the installation has failed and advising me to check the log bview.

Success!

Janet Brandly
 

After trying again, I was able to install the update successfully. After the update downloaded, there was another sound which I hadn’t heard before. I hit Alt-Yon spec and I installed and restarted successfully. In the future, it would be very helpful if this dialog would read properly.

Problem installing update

Janet Brandly
 

Hello all,
 
Thanks for your feedback so far in helping me to solve this problem. I am running Windows 10. I do not get any sound indication of the screen asking me to allow the program to make changes to my system. I get the dialog telling me to wait while the setup is being prepared. Then I hear beeping for a few minutes. During that time I alt-tab numerous times to make sure I’m not missing the screen. Pretty much immediately after the beeping stops, I get what I’d describe as a “clang” sound and a message telling me tht the installation has failed and advising me to check the log bview.
 
Hopefully this provides some further clarification.
 
Janet


Re: Firefox browsing bug in NVDA 2018.4

Interesting. You're right. When inside a frame, tabbing till you get outside the frame doesn't throw things to the top. When outside the frame, tabbing from anywhere on that page, and all others I've tried so far on the site, throws it to the first link at the top. Let's see how other browsers do.

Chrome: things work normally except at the "We believe" heading. Tab forward doesn't move the cursor. Shift+tab, then tab, lets things be normal.

IE works as expected.

Edge works as expected.

3. Press tab, I'm at the top.

Now repeat this, but move to the second one, nvAccessLimited inside the
frame.
I'm not placed at the top again.

I assume this is a Firefox bug and not related to NVDA, because tab has
no special meaning to NVDA here, at least according to input help.

Thank you Abby. With the lack of responses to my question, I figured
it was somewhat isolated to me.

If you don't mind experimenting a bit with your installation, go to
the official NVDA site:

https://www.nvaccess.org/

The main page will be good enough as it's site wide for me.

Use the headings shortcut, the letter h, to go down a couple headings.
From there, and it doesn't matter if you do it immediately, or up and
down arrow a bit, tab once.

If you hear the following words,

NV Access Empowering lives through non-visual access to technology

You'll know that you've been returned to the top of the page.

Any other response means that you're not reproducing the same thing I
am here.

Thank you.

I'm afraid I'm not reproducing this here, either, at least not on the

able to press Tab to get to the Reply button, then Tab a few more
times to get to the edit field where I'm now typing my reply.
However, I noticed earlier while proofing a post on my blog at
https://abbiescorner.wordpress.com, when I pressed Tab within the
post, it took me to the top of the post. I updated my NVDA just
yesterday, so will see what develops.

Re: can't get vlc media player to start

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

Did you try just using the run dialog?

press windows-R, then type vlc

If that doesn't work, then something broke in your system, and it's likely a reinstall is necessary.

Hi.

 

How are you trying to open it?

 

Are your file associations set to VlC?

What happens when you open it using the search box or run dialog?

If you’ve tried everything and there’s simply no VLC window opening, it may be time to re-install. There’s nothing special related to starting VlC; it should open like any other programme.

Hi, everyone,

 

I just put in a movie to try to watch but I can't get vlc media player to play now. The last time I used it was during the summer when I was watching a movie my sister gaveme for my birthday. How do I get this program to start?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

I tried everything I could think of to open vlc media player but I'll try the "open with" and see if that works.

Try the context menu key

You should find vlc media player. 

Press enter.

Re: Reading emoticons and Kazakh language for eSpeak NG

Could you please give me the address of a page - there are different ways of representing things which end up looking the same, and I want to make sure I'm comparing the same thing as you.
