Re: Accessible CD ripper

Roger Stewart
 

I like EZ Audio Converter.  Recent versions have become accessible.  Earlier ones weren't in that you couldn't select or unselect tracks using the keyboard but now you can.  It automatically checks a CD and if it exists in the on line database, all the title, artist and track info is imported so if you rip files from it, they will be properly labeled.

Hi,

Subject says it all. Does anyone know of a good CD ripper that will identify the CD title and tracks on it? We used to use CDEx, but on these new CDs we just got, it isn't identifying anything. Please help? We're using the latest version of NVDA and we're using Windows 10 version 1803.

Thank you so much for the Bluetooth Audio addon, Tony Malykh, I installed it and haven't had any breakup of audio through my bluetooth speakers in the 10 minutes since I installed it, and it always was breaking up within a matter of seconds before!

Lenron, I just Googled for Bluetooth Audio NVDA addon and got the NVDA Community addons page as the first result, and the three new addons were top of that page.

I've been trying to find the portable version of Waterfox for a while. When I try the main website, the portable link gives a 404. I also tried looking in the portable apps directory but I could not locate it so does anybody have a mirror?

 


Re: how to set nvda auto read

I should say that what I said may apply to someone who wants to move manually in a file and who wants speech as they move with the cursor being where they move to so they can use speak to end from where they have moved.  But it isn't clear to me what you want.
 
Do you want there to be no speech as you move or do you want speech as you move and speak to end to begin where you have moved to?

After pressing Shift and moving the cursor in between, pressing NVDA key a, starts speaking speaking from the current cursor position instead of the new one. Actually I'm writing a script under global plugin where I need to skip a few lines(for example), so I call the nextLine function in a loop, but I do not want NVDA to speak meanwhile. Only when it reaches the desired line, it should speak. How should I achieve this function?

Re: how to set nvda auto read

You are pausing speech with shift.  that isn't the stop speech command.  Control is the stop speech command and it does nothing else.  Try using just control, then moving the cursor, then resuming reading.

Re: how to set nvda auto read

But you can resume reading after moving the cursor with the speak to end command.  In the desktop layout, the command is NVDA key down arrow. 
 
If you are using the laptop layout, the command is NVDA key a.
 
The Speak to end command will start reading from wherever you are in the document.  You can open a document, not move at all, and start reading in that way.  If you are loading a web page, reading begins automatically but in most situations, you have to manually issue the read to end command to start reading, such as when in a word processor.

how to react to it. Can anyone relate to this and offer a

Thanks in advance and have a nice weekend,

Re: DELETING MULTIPLE E-MAILS IN GMAIL

Sarah k Alawami
 

I normally run that script I posted about every 5 or so years and put that * there. Then it will remove everything from 2-3 years back. This way I have a 2-3 year window to work for for disputes etc. This filter will by the way take all night to run but it does work and work well. This is by the way how you can I think remove all emails or multiple emails from certain labels as well. I don't know how to apply that to the script but it is an option.
