Re: nvda OCR

NVDA doesn't do entire files. It only does something like one page or one screen, I'm not sure.

Hi gentle people

I trust you are still well and safe from this invisible, evil corona.

I am trying to cope.

Please assist me.

I have a PDF file which seems to be an image.

I can OCR it with jaws.

However, nvda cannot do that.

I know that nvda+r is a keystroke to OCR PDF-imaged files.

It doesn't work for me.

It only does a small portion of the file.

How do I make OCR the whole file like jaws does?

Your assistance in this regard is appreciated in advance.

Marisane from SA

I recommend the standard Microsoft Pinyin IME for chinese simplified.
Best for a beginner IMO.

Re: thunderbird addon

 

Thanks Tyler.  I looked at the documentation twice, and I don't know how or why I missed that other than it's at the very bottom and I was rushed.

It is Mozilla Apps Enhancements. From the readme:

◦ NVDA+H Displays a dialog in which you can change the order of the
columns in the message list.

If anyone can shed some light, it would be appreciated.

As an aside, Thunderbird 78 includes major changes to its UI and is
still very much in beta stage.  It's completely unsurprising that
existing add-ons, whether Thunderbird's own or screen-reader based, will
not work correctly with it.  I'd expect this to remain the case until it
gets a lot closer to release and the developers of said add-ons tweak
them when release is imminent or right after it occurs.

If you are on the release channel for Thunderbird 32-bit, the latest
version is 68.10.0

Hello, I am also a visually impaired person who is born blind. I think one of the reasons why learning a language is important is to communicate with friends who use the language.
So I hope to be friends with you.
Oh! No, I hope to be friends with everyone here who wants to learn Chinese.
I can also help with the input method and dictionary you mentioned.
If I can improve my English expression ability in the process of helping you, it will be an extremely high thing.

Hi Group,

It allows the rearrangement of header columns among other things.  The NVDA add on that is supposed to enhance Thunderbird functionality is called Mozilla apps enhancement. However, this add on does not work with Thunderbird 78.

The quick key folder navitation is a Thunderbird add on.  I don't know if it works with version 78.

hotkey to turn on/off focus highlight

 

Hi,
Not sure if this has been suggested before but, I wonder whether it would be possible to add the ability to set a hotkey to turn on/off focus highlight in NVDA? Given that in the input gestures dialog the hotkey for screen curtain can be customized, I thought it would be nice if the hotkey for focus highlight can be customized as well.

That is correct, and also with NVDA + S (toggling speech mode off)

NVDA not announcing blank line in between two paragraphs

Showharda Koirala
 

Hi!

 

NVDA does not announce a blank line between two paragraphs while reading texts line by line using down arrow unlike JAWS which inserts a blank line between paragraphs, for example, while reading books from Bookshare Web Reader or reading news from an online portal. I prefer  blank line in between two paragraphs or after a paragraph. Can NVDA be configured to announce a blank line between two paragraphs? Or, can this issue be addressed in upcoming updates?


Disable interactions with specific programs

Joonas Palosuo
 

Hi!

I'm working as a web developer and am currently using NVDA to test our webpages for accessibility. For some reason using Visual Studio Code while having NVDA open causes the code editor to lag substantially (even in silent mode), and as I don't really need the screen reader for other programs than my web browser (Chrome, Firefox) for testing purposes I would prefer to completely disable it for VS Code or only enable it for my web browsers.

I couldn't find a way to do this in any of the documentations, is there something that could be done, for example via the python console?

Best regards,
Joonas Palosuo
