Hej,

what does the Notepad++ plugin do in detail and where can I get it? IIRC I
did not see it on the regular addon page...

Cheers and TIA,

Hi!

I find the Clipspeak add-on very useful, because without it there is no announcement of when copying and cutting and pasting has been done;

As for the system tray add-on, I hope you don’t mind me asking, but why do you need this add-on, and consider it as essential, when the system tray is perfectly usable without it? I’m not criticizing, just curious as to why you consider it a necessary add-on and think it should be part of NVDA, when NVDA can easily read the system tray on its own?

Bye for now!

I don't use many add ons because the way I use my computer, I don't benefit from most of them.  But the two I use regularly and I consider important enough that they shouldn't be add ons is Clip Speak, which announces copy and past when you copy to and past from the clipboard, and the system tray dialog add on.  The system tray dialog has been a standard part of screen-readers since Windows 2008.  It should be included in NVDA itself but it isn't.

 

As for Clipp Speak, I don't know if there is a new version that solves these problems.  the original version caused some problems in Word and it caused a problem in the Youtube downloader I use even though I wasn't directly using the add on.  So, if you see strange problems you didn't have before, even if they seem unrelated to anything you would expect the add on to cause, try disabling them and see if the problem disappears.

NVDA and TortoiseSVN

Mohammadreza Rashad
 

Hello my friends, I'm using Windows 10 x64 build 1803 and TortoiseSVN
1.10.1 x64 (latest version).
First: When I want to commit something and go to the log editor to
write what I want to do, while navigating to the first character in
edit field, either by home key when I’m on first line or by leftArrow
key, NVDA freezes for 10 seconds. When freeze ends, It says “blank”
instead of first letter. When I want to delete that first letter with
the Backspace key, NVDA freezes forever. Then I have to press
ctrl+alt+n to run it again.
I saw the abovementioned problem with 3 versions of NVDA: 2018.2.1,
2018.3beta3, and latest alpha (15920). I’ll paste the NVDA log file
for technicians to investigate.
Second: I still have problem when I want to check my commit or update
result lists with review cursor. This cursor does not scroll the list
to show the rest. In a list with e.g. 35 items, I can only see the
last 10 items using review cursor.
Thanks in advance

Re: VLC meedia player with nvda

 

To be honest, if you have dvd audio extracter you can crack the dvds.

I personally think its a crime for us to have to even do this especially if the damn things are ours and sightlings can handle the menus for nothing.

Windows media player may work better.

In most dvds which are not paramount, its possible to extract the dvd but with some startrek dvds all the files are done in such a way that while you can pull them they are in bits and bobs and unable to be reordered.

In others they are almost impossible to get.

Saying that with streaming being a thing, dvds and video shops are a thing of the past.

Then again, while I have a lot, I have not brought or listened to a dvd in ages.

Its not much good if I can't access it, or if while I can crack the thing I have issues cracking them.

I actually object to cracking the dvds in the first place as it takes time to do so about 30 minutes especially if I will only watch them once.

I even have to crack rental dvds so I can watch them and while I will crack all day long I really think the laws that make dvds accessible should also imply that there is a way to either rent audio described dvds or audio tracks or buy them out right.

That would make me not hack the dvds in the first place.

But those laws don't exist and now its just to hard to do that now so I just don't watch many dvds now.

Hi Kelly
Assuming you are talking about the voice rate in NVDA Settings being 100%,press Windows+i to open the Settings dialog for Windows, tab into the list of categories and press enter on "Ease of Access". Tab to the list of topics and arrow down to Speech and press enter. Tab to "Additional Speech Settings and press enter. You should find a speech rate for the OneCore voice, check it's value between the 2 machines and adjust accordingly.

Hi,

Are there any known issues with NVDA and the MS OneCore voices and speech rate. I have the same version of NVDA installed on two different computers but the top rates I'm getting with the OneCore voices are drastically different. On one machine, the rates are similar to what you'd get if you used MS Sapi 5, very slow even at 100%. The voices themselves are the OneCore versions though.

The two machines are running the latest Windows Insider build.

Re: review of free office

 

Hmph, all the systems have java by default.

For compatability sake, all machines as well as every visual c run time from 2005-2017 have codec mega, and java 8 latest and 10 latest.

All the access is there, I have vb 6, and the visual studio extended runtimes, as well as directx 9c redist the last one ever out, the managed directx libraries, slim dx and a few others.

I have just about every runtime loaded on the system in case windows has an issue running something.

Hi.

Well I have to agree with rosemery here.

Free office text input ariea for the text maker was itself accessible, but the menus I couldn't access them, the interface for the office menus with alt did not come up.

I also tried flexy pdf, I couldn't choose my interface, and while flexy pdf was installed as part of my review tests with the way freeoffice was I quickly went off the idea.

Ofcause I made an system restore for the thing just before I killed things, but yeah, still not happy with it all.

I will have to move back to libre office I think.







Re: Spell Checking With NVDA

Gene
 

That is for an entire line.  If there is only one word on what NVDA considers a line, whether it is or not, you will only hear that one word spelled.  But that isn't the read current word command. 
 
I would suggest you consider learning the proper review commands, for read current word and read current character.  You should also learn the command in that cluster for read current line.  They are important not only because you may need them for there usual purpose, but they are essential to know if you want to select text you can't select with the application cursor.  If you are in a dialog, for example, and you want to send someone the text that describes an error to someone doing technical support.

Re: Spell Checking With NVDA

Abbie Taylor <abbietaylor945@...>
 

I'm also a writer. I'm not familiar with object navigation, but I can tab through the spell checker dialog in Word 2013 and read everything except the misspelled word. In the list of suggestions, NVDA doesn't spell the suggested words.


For this reason, I have NVDA set to notify me of spelling mistakes. When proofreading a document, I pay attention to these and correct them on the spot. Then, I run the spell checker in case I missed anything. When I do, since I have some vision, I enlarge the text so I can more easily see my mistakes.


I've tried Jarte, a free word processing program. In that spell checker, NVDA works a lot better, since it's laid out in a menu, and even spells the misspelled word and suggestions. Unfortunately, Jarte dosn't have all the functions of Microsoft Word. I hope this is helpful.

Station Playlist Studio, Station Playlist Streamer and the great nvda add on for spl.  For best results, use an external mixer if possible but there is a way to do it without a mixer.

Hi folks,

I had a query from someone about accessible software for DJs - they want to use a laptop both for storing music and playing back / controlling speakers etc.

So, what do (or don't) you use?  What would you recommend to someone new?

Regards

Quentin.

Re: Facebook account

Quentin Christensen
 

This isn't actually an NVDA question, particularly if you are talking about your phone, but, when you run the facebook app, or go to the website, when you get to the login screen asking for your username and password, if you can't remember either of them, there should be a "forgotten account" or "forgotten password" link or similar, which should walk you through regaining access to your account.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Spell Checking With NVDA

Hi Wilco,

Assuming you are using the latest version of Office 2016, the Spell checker has actually improved quite a bit over earlier Word 2016 implementations.  In earlier versions you did need to use object navigation to get to the misspelt word.  The way it is now, you don't need to.

If you are running a corporate operating environment, they may be locked on an older build.  If that is the case, then you may need to press NVDA+numpad4 (NVDA+shift+left arrow if using laptop keyboard layout) to move to the previous object to read the misspelt word.  That works, but I'd still push for them to update if possible.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi,

 

I realise from a quick root around on this board that the question of how NVDA handles the spell checker in MS Word is not a new issue. I don’t want to waste anyone’s time, but since this is such a crucial issue for me I just wanted to triple check that I have understood the situation correctly.

 

We’re running Word 2016 at work at the moment. Am I right in thinking that NVDA will only read the different parts of the spell check dialogue if you navigate around using the object navigation commands?

 

With JAWS, when I go to spell check a document, JAWS will automatically say something like ‘spelling’, then announce the misspelt word, then ‘suggestions’ and then the first word in the list of suggested replacements, which is where the focus is. All this is announced automatically, without the need for any navigating around or keyboard commands. Then, if the first suggestion isn’t the one I want, I can cursor up and down and use the keyboard shortcuts for change or ignore etc.

 

It’s a really slick implementation of the spell checker dialogue because it means I can skip through a big document really quickly, and if the first suggestion is the one I want, which it is a lot of the time, I can just press C or I without the need to waste time navigating around and digging up what my options are for each spelling error, which feels massively clunky and time consuming by comparison.

 

As a professional writer, if it is correct that NVDA doesn’t offer any kind of automatic vocal feedback that summarises the spell checker dialogue as a whole, without the need to scout around using navigation keys, then this might be a deal breaker.

 

Cheers.
