Re: Skype ver 8.33

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

A lot of people are using Zoom, but its early days. I have not used it for a while, but I believe its not free if you want to use it a lot for complex stuff. I saw some issues mentioned about compatibility with nvda, at least the one that works with xp, and I also suspect from comments seen elsewhere that the newer versions of Zoom do not run on xp any more either, which is par for the course these days.

If anyone has Zoom working well on XP it would be nice to hear as many of my friends have XP as all they do is fiddle about online and use email for which its still OK given the anti virus being up to date of coarse, but its very slow on browsing and in any case many web sites now won't even look at Firefox 52.

I heard the other day that in the US Skype for Alexa is being rolled out, but you still need a skype account created on a browser first to be able to use it with the echo range.

hi chris and all.
as i use windows xp and skype 8 is not supported on xp, i decided to
try other programs.
can you please explane me differences between skype and zoom?
i also tried teamtalk and the quality was extremely great, but the
difficulty is not having account like skype and need port, server, etc
which made teamtalk a little dificult for me in compare to skype which
is more private, i have my account and only have relations with people
who i know.
how about zoom? is it like skype in this regard or like teamtalk?
i really appreciate any help and wish to contact to other people, but
dont know what can i do now!
God bless you all!

Folks

Forgive me if you have discussed this already.

I stupidly upgraded my Skype classic to the latest ver 8.33.

I'm struggling to make it work with either NVDA or JAWS, with the same
ease as Skype classic.

Does anyone have suggestions ?.

Thanks, Paul

Re: Gramarly for Firefox and conflicts with NVDA

 

Oh, I know what it's like. Sometimes I do the same.
But I'm really not doing it now. Anyway, I still don't know what's happening.
I contacted their support, but haven't had any answers so far, when I'm writing this. Let's see if it changes.

You said NVDA enter in your message.  If you don't read messages before sending, it is a good idea.  You may make mistakes when writing that you catch when reading before sending.  I read mail before sending and I see errors in commands that I made when writing and I suspect this is common..

Hi Quentin,
To change the mode I use NVDA+spacebar, what gives me a error every time I try until I restart my browser.
I noticed it writing on the m.facebook message field, do you know?
No, I can't see the red lines you said, even not knew about them lol
I tested it writing something wrong and then I clicked where was writen "protected by grammarly", something like this.
After the second click it showed me some suggestions to the word I've typed.

 Hi Marcio,


 I do have the Grammarly add-on active in Firefox, but I don't seem to have any problem switching between browse and focus modes.  I don't normally use NVDA+enter to do it though - do you have a particular site you need to do that on?


 If I go to say google.com I can move in and out of the edit box changing the contents of it as I like.  Even with automatic switching between modes disabled, I can enter and escape to change modes, or NVDA+spacebar and it all works as it should.


 My other question is, do you have enough sight to see Grammarly's red lines, or have you found a way to detect what it has highlighted with NVDA? Because I've never managed to get it to work with NVDA.  It doesn't break anything for me, but I just can't get NVDA to see what it is flagging anywhere.


 Regards


 Quentin.

   Hello folks,
   Anyone here is using Grammarly add-on?
   If so, you might already know what it's like.
   If not, let me try to explain.
   Grammarly was supposed to be a spell checker, what it really does and very well.
   What happens, however, is that the add-on is conflicting with NVDA on the exchange between focus and browse mode.
   Every time I try to write something with this add-on enabled, I'm not able to do NVDA enter in the field so  I can type. So, if I want to type anything, I need to restart Firefox, aim the field and type without exiting, since once I do it, goodbye, I will never again be able to do NVDA let me type on the field.
    Well, the add-on is really very good, but if I can't find any way to solve this problem, surely I will prefer to let it disabled as I'm doing right now so I can type normally and without troubles.
   If anyone uses it or even have any possible solution, please give me a hand. Any help will be highly appreciated.

Hi.

I installed 2018.4 beta 1 today using Espeak on Windows 10 Pro, build 1809, 64 bit.

I'm noticing a slightly more sluggish or delayed response when navigating within email messages using Mozilla Thunderbird. Specifically, when I press the letter K to move by links the response time is a bit slower. Pressing left/right arrow keys also is slightly slower. When I uninstalled the beta and reinstalled 2018.3.2 response time was back to normal. Occasionally, I've noticed similar behavior using Google Chrome. Have others seen this behavior as well?

Re: different headers in Word

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Giles,

In the header and footer design toolbar is an option to "Link to previous" which you can uncheck if you want different headers and footers in each section:

1.  Press ALT+J, then H to open the design ribbon
2.  Press K to unlink this header or footer from the previous section's.

I'll double check whether that is mentioned in the material, and if not, I'll add it in!

Regards

Quentin.

What I could not find any info on was how to unlink a header in one section from the header in the previous section so it can be different.

I'm trying to submit a piece of coursework for my screenwriting module that has a cover sheet, a section of character profiles and a section with the plot treatment.

Does anybody know how I can put a heading in section 2 that is for Character Profiles, and one in section 3 that says Treatment?

I have a workaround - a single header that says Character Profiles and Treatment, with a level 1 heading for Character Profiles and another level 1 heading for Treatment so it's not an urgent request but I'd like to know for future use :)

  • When NVDA is set to languages such as Kirgyz, Mongolian or Macedonian, it no longer shows a dialog on start-up warning that the language is not supported by the Operating System. (#8064)
  • Moving the mouse to the navigator object will now much more accurately move the mouse to the browse mode position in Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Acrobat Reader DC. (#6460)
  • Interacting with combo boxes on the web in Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer has been improved. (#8664)
  • If running on the Japanese version of Windows XP or Vista, NVDA now displays OS version requirements message as expected. (#8771)

Re: Polytonic Greek on Braille Displays

John J. Boyer
 

Do the displays show a power-on message when they are connected? You will also have to restart NVDA.

This is from the 2018.3.2 user guide.

"NVDA supports most displays from Handy Tech when connected via USB,
serial port or bluetooth. For older USB displays, you will need to
install the USB drivers from Handy Tech on your system.
The following displays are not supported out of the box, but can be
used via Handy Tech's universal driver and NVDA add-on:
• Braillino
• Bookworm
• Modular displays with firmware version 1.13 or lower. Please note
that the firmware of this displays can be updated."

I installed the Handy Tech Universal driver, but neither Braillino nor
Handy Tech show under displays. I would think that this is because
it's not connected, but none of the others are and they still show.
In 2017.3, it shows Handy Tech, but the User Guide still says that,
for older models, the driver is required. I need to be 100% sure that
the Braillino will work with NVDA or there is no reason for me to buy
it.

Hi Eleni,

Can you borrow the Pac mate display and try the Koine table? If it isn't
satisfactory your best recourse is the liblouis
list. They are very helpful and are interested in getting more tables.

Greek. If you join the liblouis list you can get help writing such a

Hello,

I am considering buying a braille display. Right now, I have three
options, considering my price range. These are a Pacmate, an Orbit
Reader 20 (which I don't really want, as it lacks cursor-routing
buttons), a Braillino, and a Braille Me. The Orbit or Braille Me
would be new. The Pacmate is an Omni that works well, though I don't
know its age. The Braillino is two-years-old and in great condition.
While I may occasionally use the display on its own, I will mostly be
using this with NVDA to read the screen, though not as my primary
means, since I have speech for that.

But before I ask any further questions, I must know this, or there is
no point in continuing. Can NVDA handle polytonic Greek in braille.
I see that there is a Koine and a Greek (Greece) braille table. I am
learning Katharevousa, which, like Koine, uses all three accents and
two breathing marks. I have NVDA 2017.3 for XP and the latest
version
for Windows 7. While I have reached an intermediate level with
speech
alone, I think that having the letters in front of me would be
extremely helpful. But I must know that they will be displayed
correctly. Finally, can it read Latin, including the macrons? Can
any of these displays read either of these correctly on their own?

As for the displays themselves, which works the best with NVDA? What
are the major differences between these? Note that I don't use
bluetooth or sd cards, so those are not deciding factors for me. For
what it's worth, my only experience with braille displays has been
with a Braille Lite 2000 and a BrailleNote Classic, which I haven't
used since 2006.

Thank you,
Eleni

Re: Polytonic Greek on Braille Displays

John J. Boyer
 

Hi Eleni,

If you can send me a text file with polytonic Greek or give me a URL where I can find one I can experiment with it. I
think a table for polytonic Greek could
be created by simply adding symbols to the Koine table.

I'm the original developer of liblouis. Now I'm retired from programming, but I'm interested in Greek because of its use
in the Bible.

Let's take this correspondence private. You can send me the fille at john.boyer@abilitiessoft .

Thanks and happy thanksgiving,
John

Hi Quentin,
To change the mode I use NVDA+spacebar, what gives me a error every time I try until I restart my browser.
I noticed it writing on the m.facebook message field, do you know?
No, I can't see the red lines you said, even not knew about them lol
I tested it writing something wrong and then I clicked where was writen "protected by grammarly", something like this.
After the second click it showed me some suggestions to the word I've typed.

I do have the Grammarly add-on active in Firefox, but I don't seem to have any problem switching between browse and focus modes.  I don't normally use NVDA+enter to do it though - do you have a particular site you need to do that on?

If I go to say google.com I can move in and out of the edit box changing the contents of it as I like.  Even with automatic switching between modes disabled, I can enter and escape to change modes, or NVDA+spacebar and it all works as it should.

My other question is, do you have enough sight to see Grammarly's red lines, or have you found a way to detect what it has highlighted with NVDA?  Because I've never managed to get it to work with NVDA.  It doesn't break anything for me, but I just can't get NVDA to see what it is flagging anywhere.

Grammarly was supposed to be a spell checker, what it really does and very well.
What happens, however, is that the add-on is conflicting with NVDA on the exchange between focus and browse mode.
Every time I try to write something with this add-on enabled, I'm not able to do NVDA enter in the field so  I can type. So, if I want to type anything, I need to restart Firefox, aim the field and type without exiting, since once I do it, goodbye, I will never again be able to do NVDA let me type on the field.
 Well, the add-on is really very good, but if I can't find any way to solve this problem, surely I will prefer to let it disabled as I'm doing right now so I can type normally and without troubles.
If anyone uses it or even have any possible solution, please give me a hand. Any help will be highly appreciated.

Well, nice point, I always can use just the Firefox native function. I was just wanting to experiment something new, do you know?

If this Grammarly add on is specific for Firefox and NVDA, is it really necessary?  Firefox has a spell as you go feature that flags misspellings in edit fields.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Gramarly for Firefox and conflicts with NVDA

Hi Quentin,
To change the mode I use NVDA+spacebar, what gives me a error every time I try until I restart my browser.
I noticed it writing on the m.facebook message field, do you know?
No, I can't see the red lines you said, even not knew about them lol
I tested it writing something wrong and then I clicked where was writen "protected by grammarly", something like this.
After the second click it showed me some suggestions to the word I've typed.

Hi Marcio,

I do have the Grammarly add-on active in Firefox, but I don't seem to have any problem switching between browse and focus modes.  I don't normally use NVDA+enter to do it though - do you have a particular site you need to do that on?

If I go to say google.com I can move in and out of the edit box changing the contents of it as I like.  Even with automatic switching between modes disabled, I can enter and escape to change modes, or NVDA+spacebar and it all works as it should.

My other question is, do you have enough sight to see Grammarly's red lines, or have you found a way to detect what it has highlighted with NVDA?  Because I've never managed to get it to work with NVDA.  It doesn't break anything for me, but I just can't get NVDA to see what it is flagging anywhere.

Regards

Quentin.

Hello folks,
Anyone here is using Grammarly add-on?
If so, you might already know what it's like.
If not, let me try to explain.
Grammarly was supposed to be a spell checker, what it really does and very well.
What happens, however, is that the add-on is conflicting with NVDA on the exchange between focus and browse mode.
Every time I try to write something with this add-on enabled, I'm not able to do NVDA enter in the field so  I can type. So, if I want to type anything, I need to restart Firefox, aim the field and type without exiting, since once I do it, goodbye, I will never again be able to do NVDA let me type on the field.
 Well, the add-on is really very good, but if I can't find any way to solve this problem, surely I will prefer to let it disabled as I'm doing right now so I can type normally and without troubles.
If anyone uses it or even have any possible solution, please give me a hand. Any help will be highly appreciated.


Cheers,
Marcio

different headers in Word

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi all,

I have the Microsoft Word with NVDA document and have read the section on headers. I have followed the keystrokes and added a page break and section break and a blank header ...

What I could not find any info on was how to unlink a header in one section from the header in the previous section so it can be different.

I'm trying to submit a piece of coursework for my screenwriting module that has a cover sheet, a section of character profiles and a section with the plot treatment.

Does anybody know how I can put a heading in section 2 that is for Character Profiles, and one in section 3 that says Treatment?

I have a workaround - a single header that says Character Profiles and Treatment, with a level 1 heading for Character Profiles and another level 1 heading for Treatment so it's not an urgent request but I'd like to know for future use :)

Giles

I had exactly the same problem. Try the latest beta - 2018.4beta1 - it
solved it for me.

Re: Win 10 ver 1809

Hi, I did and yes the machine that reads all the garbage in settings is the one affected.

Wonder how many on the list installed Win 10 version 1809 when it first came out and before it was pulled back.  It seems that the strange verbage I get when openning up the settings app relates to version 1809 and does not happen with version 1803.
