Re: Internet radio software recommended for use with NVDA?

Jacob Kruger
 

Ok, Gene, just to provide an update that it was actually my own fault in terms of not locating the local radio stations - besides the treeview item for national radio, there is an additional one labeled regions, and, under there, under Africa, South Africa, there are over 100 stations listed, so, I will play around with the updated interface a bit more.


And, yes, nice to hear it tell me that it recognises that I am making use of NVDA, etc. - know they adopted forms of screen reader support a while ago, but anyway.

and while it's station listings will be kept up to date, the older

Re: wonder vs. wander

Rick
 

Hello Travis:

I find your email to be quite insensitive. As you are probably aware, this
list is comprised of people from all over the globe, many of whom are not
native English speakers. I am always impressed when people are capable of
speaking an additional language other than their native tongue and
criticizing them for grammatical mistakes on a list not focused on
grammatical correctness is petty and unwarranted. It is also off topic.

Not trying to make anybody mad here, but it really is disconcerting to see
so many people here using wander and wonder interchangeably.
Wander (with an"A" ) is what you do when you're out and about, and don't
have any particular place to be, and you just feel like taking your time to
see what's going on around you.  You wander around, looking at things, and
simply taking things easy.
On the other hand, wonder (with an "O" ) is what you do when you're curious
about something.  Yeah, it's ok to wonder about life, the universe and
everything, but if you wander about such things, you may never find your way
back to your back yard, having being swept off into galaxies unknown.
And, of course, it's perfectly acceptable to wonder about wandering too,
especially if you're wondering why so many people wander into things.


Re: Internet radio software recommended for use with NVDA?

Jacob Kruger
 

Thanks.


Will also try this one out a bit more, and, would just prefer if they gave you a choice about whether to let it speak on it's own, or just ask your screen reader to speak on it's behalf.


Also, each time I alt + tab away, or focus on it again, the system volume level for the specific piece of software drops to 60% - under windows 10 you can set separate volume levels for different pieces of software.

Re: Internet radio software recommended for use with NVDA?

Well, for example, it seems to think that here in South Africa, there are only like 3 streaming radio stations?


Besides that, the genre/locality browsing interface is rather clumsy, but, suppose that might just be due to me being somewhat used to the previous interface.


I'll probably give it a try again, but, like said, doesn't help that it seems to think that there are only 3 radio stations under the South African locale, where the prior version shows up to something like 70+, but anyway.


Maybe I will be able to copy the listings across versions as well - who knows.

Excel reads numeric cells in column E as exponents rather than cell value

Rick
 

Hello NVDA List:

 

The other day I was reading an Excel  spreadsheet sent to me by a colleague. It had numeric values in column E. When reading these cells with Microsoft One Core voices (I am using Microsoft David) the cell name was read as an exponent to the power of 10. For instance, if the value 1.24 was present in cell E4, the speech produced, “1.24 time 10 to the power of 4” rather than 1.24 E4. This does not happen when using Espeak voices or SAPI 5 voices. Note, if the number in the cell is the result of a formula and not a direct value, the phrase, “has formula” is inserted between the number and the cell name, so it works as expected (i.e. 1.24 has formula E4).

 

Note: This does not happen using Narrator, since Narrator reads the cell name first.

 

I am running the latest released copy of NVDA, Office 365 desktop apps and Windows 10 Professional.

 

Rick

Re: Ccleaner the sequal

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

I do not know, I was wondering the same. However I found another bug in the new version. I It removes some registry entries its not supposed to. When I ran it on windows 7 after first setting a restore point, I'm not daft! It got rid of my default email links, and reconfigured the browser to use IE and the media player to use Windows media player. Now I'm sure you could tell it to ignore these but it seems its not reading the default settings always. Interestingly on XP machines, no such funnies. So I put everything back as it was. However I hd to reinstall Winamp as it also too all the context menu options out but the restore did not put them back.

I do wish when software writers make new versions they exhaustively test them on the versions of Windows they will encounter. I'm sure this is just a bug where it fails to read the defaut parameter file but its irritating and I can imagine it might upset somebody who does not understand concepts like registry keys being pointers to programs to use by default.

"wonder" and "wander." I've been blind since birth. Although I did learn
braille when I was in school. Problem is, I've had data retention issues
my entire life. As in I turn the page, and completely forget what I was
reading.

It's just easier for me to listen, because I actually retain more
that way. People say you only retain about 10-15% of what you hear, but
I think for me it's probably about 50 or 60% at least.

Re: wonder vs. wander

I’m with you Hope. I retain probably about those numbers too when I hear audible books etc. Now hopefully that will change once I get my fingers on a Brailleiant 14 BI from the NC state library on loan soon.

It's a good question. Although I definitely know the difference between
"wonder" and "wander." I've been blind since birth. Although I did learn
braille when I was in school. Problem is, I've had data retention issues
my entire life. As in I turn the page, and completely forget what I was

Re: Internet radio software recommended for use with NVDA?

I'm using Simple Radio. The Windows 10 app is usable, not accessible. Although it's fully accessible on Android.

Asking this since the older, free version of tapIn radio was perfectly usable, but, they've now updated to what seems to be a paid-for version, and while it's station listings will be kept up to date, the older version will start lacking functional entries in the station listings.


Now, while I understand paying for worthwhile software, I tried out the demo version of the new software, and, didn't like it's reworked interface, and, secondly, I don't see why I should pay for something like this if there are free alternatives that people would recommend?


So, suggestions on what to try out?


Would be nice if you could record it's output via the software, but, that's not the end of the world, since the main thing is being able to browse station categories/catalogues, being able to then control playback, audio output, etc. etc.


Stay well
