Hi,
I believe that this change was made looking for the new emojis panel. Like, now you have what I'd call subcategories, such as skin tones and more. So it's the only way we can have access to all of this emojis, I guess.

Hi,
This is rather a change in Windows 10 Version 1809, not NVDA.

Question: How to Enable the Experimental UIA Support for Word in 2018.4 RC 2

David Goldfield
 

Hello.

For NVDA 2018.4 I recall reading about some text which could be inserted within the NVDA.ini file to enable experimental UIA support within Word. I lost the email with those instructions and wonder if someone could kindly repost the information?


Many thanks.

Re: Tifkitecnia Demos

Luis Carlos González Moráles
 

Hi,
OK, I'm very confused now.
Updating the vocalizer engine from version 1.1 to version 2 or 3 takes
I'm afrade 1 or 2 so years?
Will be there more voices or languages in the future?

Hello!

Tiflotecnia is selling Vocalizer for NVDA since 2013.
Code Factory started selling Vocalizer for NVDA in 2016, after becoming
Nuance distributors for the assistive technology market... and our
supplier of Vocalizer licenses...

Both package requires the deactivation of the license prior to a format
or similar...

Tiflotecnia's Vocalizer allows a portable license in a portable NVDA...
Code Factory's Vocalizer requires you to install an activation in a PC,
and uninstalling it after using...

Tiflotecnia only provides Vocalizer and Code Factory provides Vocalizer
and Eloquence...

Our automatic language switching system is better then the one from Code
Factory...

Best regards,

Rui Fontes
Tiflotecnia, Lda.

Re: Tifkitecnia Demos

Gene
 

I'm sorry.  I misunderstood your message.  its Code Factory that provides Eloquence and Vocalizer in the same add-on.  Your company only provides Vocalizer in the add-on.  Unless the problem has been corrected in the Code Factory add-on, I wouldn't consider buying  the Code Factory add-on unless I was buying it for Vocalizer and not for eloquence.

Hello!
Tiflotecnia is selling Vocalizer for NVDA since 2013.
Code Factory started selling Vocalizer for NVDA in 2016, after becoming
Nuance distributors for the assistive technology market... and our
supplier of Vocalizer licenses...
Both package requires the deactivation of the license prior to a format
or similar...
Tiflotecnia's Vocalizer allows a portable license in a portable NVDA...
Code Factory's Vocalizer requires you to install an activation in a PC,
and uninstalling it after using...
Tiflotecnia only provides Vocalizer and Code Factory provides Vocalizer
and Eloquence...
Our automatic language switching system is better then the one from Code
Factory...

Re: question about nvda add ons

 

True, I think of addons in their simplest form if only containing modules and plugins as being packaged archives, but I guess in their more advanced state since they can contain everything from scripts to fully portable apps, synths and drivers etc, as extentions for nvda that can do a lot of things, in the past since they can take programs bad things but mostly good if secured right.

Since nvda is just a reader and such extentions like in google chrome would be apt.

But if nvda was its own os, then nvda addons would be what the apple bundles are to macs or those packaged executable installers you get in windows are.

So installers for apps.

Apps can be scripts for apps, drivers, synths, apps in their own right etc.

Not saying that it would happen but to be honest, there is not much idea wize from making nvda to its own os.

maybe a linux distro, technically there is more to that than meets the eye.

Subject: [nvda] question about nvda add ons


Hey guys, Molly here again.

I was just wondering, is an NVDA add on the equivalent of jaws scripts? I
realize that add ons enhance the functionality of NVDA. Isn't that similar
to Jaws scripting? Or am I way off base here?

Thanks.

Hi,

So to be clear, code factory is the only one that actually does this?

Hi Ralph,
When the beginning of every phrase is cut off - this is a problem of many wireless headphones. This happens because headphones enter standby mode after a few seconds of inactivity. Try my add-on
BluetoothAudio:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/BluetoothAudio.en.html
it should help with this problem. Ignore the fact that it has bluetooth in its name, it will probably help with your wireless headphones as well. You might need to restart NVDA after changing sound output option for this addon to work properly.

Dear Friends,

May I ask for your input on this, once again. I am running Windows 10
and have two audio options: a Realtek sound card and a Logitech
wireless headset (not Bluetooth). Under the NVDA speech settings, when
I choose one of these, the output is through the other one. I want the
Logitech wireless headset, but have to choose Realtek to get it.
However, the NVDA sounds do not have the same good voice quality as
when I used to set it to come through the Logitech option. Especially,
the initial sound in each word is often cut off. Selecting the Realtek
option, NVDA sounds come through the Logitech headset, but system sounds come through the computer speakers.

When I raised these issues three weeks ago, several of you suggested
this would be a driver problem. I checked the settings and drivers,
together with my sighted wife and we found no irregularity. I had
another person, who is more computer savvy, look at this and he, too,
said that there was no evidence of errors with either the Realtek driver or the Logitech driver.

Is it possible to have a driver problem, even though there is no error
alert?

Any other suggestions?

Warmly,
Ralph

I'm not sure what you are describing.  Often, in Windows 7, even with old
versions of NVDA, when I open a folder, nothing is spoken automatically,
such as the first item in the folder.  If I move or use speak current line,
what I move to is spoken but I don't know if that is what you are

Windows 7 does not use UIA though which was why I specifically mentioned it
here.
I think its simply missing something, as its not every time, only
sometimes.
Its only started to happen recently say in the last couple of releases of
nvda. I guess it might be that the system has to decide if its uia or not
which might stop it getting the info from windows if its significantly
slower than it used to be. My machine is still the same though, so unless
something I installed is doing tit , I'm at a loss.

Hi!
It's a long-standing issue. I reported it at:
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/8389
It's probably UIA-related. On Windows 10 build 1809 I haven't seen it
thus far, so it may have been solved there.
Best,
Felix

This is Windows 7, and only seems to have started to happen recently.
I have had a short cut to the root of drive C: on my desktop, but it can
happen at any time in opening drives or folders, where the actual focused
drive is not spoken by nvda. Here is the log file. Its not very long. I
select the shortcut with L then hit enter wait and nothing is spoken then
I
did an nvda/f1 to see what was going on. there is an exception and
nothing
gets focus.

Well all I can say is that in 10 portable nvda is awful on explorer, whereas on 7 its no different.

I do not think uia is involved as if you look at the log no errors or mention of uia is there at all.

Hello Brian,
actually Windows 7 does use UIA quite a lot, so it may well be involved.

If you want to look at Tiflotecnia up close and personal, go here: https://vocalizer-nvda.com/

Hi,

Okay, this is all new to me. I thought code factory was the only company that sold vocalizer voices hense why I didn't go with them.


Is there a link pointing to this other companie's offerings and how does licensing work?


Similarly, I'm lothed to throw the ridiculous amount of money at code factory for NVDA eloquence.

Nimer: You are actually expressing my feels about Code Factory. Having dealt with both, I choose Tiflotecnia. By the way, you got one thing wrong. Removing an authorization does put it back in your available activations to be used again. I bought my original add-ons from A. T. Guys and even they have a devil of a time getting Code Factory to respond to their requests for authorization resets. To keep this on topic, I am just glad I do now have a workable solution for high-quality voices for NVDA.

No working demo of the voices, no listening to sample of the voices working with NVDA, no new update with new voices or added or  fixed features in over two years... I'm sorry but no matter how good the customer support might be, this is not a company I want to throw my money at. If other users do, please have at it. I am glad some can make use of their product. I feel that it is a waste of money, and that this company is not one I would trust with a single additional dollar. I purchased this product a while back and I regret it very much. The licensing scheme is stupid, a user has no control to reset his or her own keys if needed without contacting the support, the driver has bugs which haven't been addressed, no new voices are supported even still after being promised an update for years no, and I am supposed to just blindly trust this company to keep supporting their products?

Again, anyone who knows me that this is not how I like to respond to individuals or companies on any list, and I generally have some amount of patience, reminding users of product development cycles and such, always looking for the value in a product or service. After so many broken promises and lack of follow-through, I am unable to put any weight behind this product, or the company represented.

Thanks.
