Re: nvda OCR

The area where NVDA can perform OCR is the part that appears on the screen.
And it's not a fully functional OCR feature.
You must use an OCR software for this.
It can be, for example, Finereader.
Some PDFs can analyze Chrome well.
You can try.

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.

Re: hotkey to turn on/off focus highlight

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Supanut,

It has been requested a couple of times since Focus Highlight was added in 2019.3.  I've written up an issue for it just now: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/11405  Feel free to comment on the issue to add anything I've missed, or any other thoughts on the topic.

Kind regards

Quentin.

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.

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

Re: Mandarin Chinese on Computers for a New Chinese Learner

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.
