Re: How to get NVDA speak a word

Gene
 

I can cause dot not to be spoken with a dictionary entry with dot in the pattern field and a space in the pronounced as field.

I had wondered if making a second entry with dot in both fields would override the first entry, but it doesn't, so if I have both entries in the dictionary, that doesn't solve the problem.

So, are you saying you've actually replicated the original problem? If so, details please.

I can't get anything that has the word dot in it not to say dot when NVDA is reading.

I just tested my idea and it doesn't work. Dot isn't spoken if a dictionary entry is added using dot in the pronounced as field.

Before going that far, you can try NVDA+control+r three times rapidly, to reset your configuration to factory defaults.

Though the question remains: is this the word dot, the period at the end of a sentence, or a decimal point that you're talking about?

Can you give us an example of a phrase where you would expect to hear dot, but don't.

Re: NVDA and JAWS are mute

Quentin Christensen
 

Good afternoon,

It sounds like you might have NVDA (and I assume Jaws) set to use a different audio device (which may have been unplugged or not exist for some reason).

With NVDA running:
1. Press NVDA+control+s to open the synthesizer dialog.
2. Press TAB once to move to the output device.
3. Press either the first letter or use the arrows or navigation keys to select a device*
4. Press ENTER to change devices and close the dialog.

* I would press HOME at step 3 to go to the first device.  If that doesn't work, repeat and next time around press down arrow, and then press down arrow each time.

Alternatively, you can press NVDA+control+r three times quickly to reset NVDA back to factory defaults.  Note that will reset any other NVDA preferences, but it should reset the output device to Windows default which is what Narrator will be using.

Kind regards
Quentin.

Re: NVDA closes after disconnecting from bluetooth

 

Quentin,

Jimmy originally offered, "When I turn the speaker back on and it reconnects, NVDA  is closed and I need do the control alt n shortcut."

The way I'm reading this is that it's not a typical complaint about "the usual Bluetooth sleeping issues" but that NVDA itself is closing unexpectedly and must be restarted using the keyboard shortcut to fire it up (though one could, of course, fire it up via any method of one's choosing).

Now, if Mr. Vonderlinden would clarify, that would help a lot.

So, Nevzat, let me get this straight. If you go into Notepad & type
the word "dot", are you saying NVDA won't read it?

It couldn't hurt, but you may want to consider, if you can do it, creating a
portable copy of NVDA from another machine and seeing, if you run that,
whether the issue goes away.

If memory serves, when you uninstall NVDA, your various user settings and
the like are not removed, and if the issue lies there, an
uninstall/reinstall may do nothing.  But if you have a portable copy created
from another machine, it can help in diagnosing.

I really can't figure out why the word "dot" would not be said barring
something being rigged to make that happen.

Re: Braille Formatting

Quentin Christensen
 

Did you get an answer to this?  The only thing I can think of is could it simply be the document?  EG this first line of my reply is quite long and although visually it likely wraps to a second line, it is one "line" and should pan correctly on a Braille display.
This line is short.
This too.

Hi All,

 

While reading a document with my Brailliant BI 40, the text fills the entire display for the first several pans, but then I may see one or two words and a mostly blank line until I advance the display again.  I am seeing this in Google Docs, Word and even Notepad.  Which setting do I need to change within NVDA to ensure that each advance of the display fills the entire display with text?


Thanks,

Re: NVDA closes after disconnecting from bluetooth

Quentin Christensen
 

Sorry for the delay replying.

If you haven't already got another solution, there is an add-on which might help called "BluetoothAudio".  It basically stops your bluetooth headphones / speakers from going into standby mode: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/BluetoothAudio.en.html

As noted on the page, that can reduce battery life of your bluetooth audio device - but it might also make using them a smoother experience as well.

The consistency argument makes sense. How would I go about using that
shortcut though?

Hi.

You might not see the need, but I know that others might. I prefer NVDA
stick to consistency where this is concerned, as confusion may arise if they
go down this road. You may be able to disable configuration profile
triggering with a shortcut before you do something like this, to prevent it
from happening when a specific profile is activated.






Re: How to get NVDA speak a word

 

I tried your suggestions but still have the issue.
Would uninstalling and installing NVDA help?

Nevzat,

What I'm trying to say is that you don't configure NVDA to say it, because
it should say it be default, but my guess is that at some point someone has
put in a dictionary entry that is somehow snagging dot and substituting
nothing.

The first thing to check is the default dictionary, which you can reach via
NVDA+N,P,D,D, then start down arrowing through all the entries, looking for
one where the pattern string contains dot, somewhere.  It need not be a
perfect match, it could be something like ".*dot" or "dot*" but it will most
likely have those three characters somewhere.  If you find one, and have no
idea what it's for, remove it.  Let's hope that whoever created it, and that
could be you, entered a comment field when they did as that makes it much
easier to know what the intent was, and whether removal is likely to trigger
another issue.

If there's nothing there, then try the previously mentioned keyboard
shortcut sequence, but substitute V for that last D to look at the Voice
Dictionary.  It's possible the offending entry could be in there.

Since this persists across having shut NVDA down and started it again, it
cannot be the temporary dictionary.

If you find nothing in the dictionaries that could be causing this, I'm at a
loss.  I'd try changing synth and voice just to see if the issue persists
after having done so.
