Since you are using Win 10, you won't get that ugly voice!  It will
default to a Windows One Core voice  and these are very understandable.
Only thing is they can't be sped up very much as most all the more
natural sounding voices just fall apart and become like jibberish and
not understandable if you speed them up very much.  But you'll like the
One Core voice very much better than the eSpeak.  At least, that's true
for myself anyhow.

Hi

 

Have you already got a copy of nvda already? if not you will need to get a copy from http://www.nvaccess.org

It can be found under the downloads section.

 

To get into the preferences of NVDA after it has been started it is the nvda key + letter N then arrow down to help and a sub menu will come off it that is where you will find the user manual.

 

If nvda is not running it is the alt key +ctrl key + the letter N to start your copy of nvda.

 

To quit your copy of nvda it is the nvda key + letter q.

 

Where i refer to the nvda key this is a modifier key and can be the insert key, the extended insert key or the caps lock key.

 

You would use what ever one you chose to say quit nvda for example insert key + letter Q

 

For windows 10 users now the default voice i think is set to windows one core voices.

 

Otherwise earlier than that is e speak which i use all the time.

 

Just to give you the heads up also when you go into the preferences part of nvda then arrow right it will now take you into the settings. Here you can arrow down and up these sections.

 

To go into any of the sections use the tab key and tab through each part of that section. You will see what i mean.

 

You can also use other sapi 4 and 5 voices along if you want to pay for either vocaliser or eloquence voice not charged by nvaccess.

 

If you grab it from the website after it has been downloaded and the file clicked on and started it has a talking installer. You will need to agree to the documentation then after that it will give you 3 options one to install to your pc, the second to make a portable copy and the third to run as a temp copy pick the first option and follow directions to install it to your pc.

 

If a UAC screen comes up for security use the alt key + letter Y to allow nvda to be installed to your pc.

 

I do have other material on how to use nvda on my website if you are interested but is only for a desk top user both in audio and written.

What I do to download something is to save it to my downloads folder. Then I install it from there. You could do that with the latest version of NVDA.

there is another way to get NvDA up and running quickly, especially on a new system where you just want to get your favorite stuff going without hastle... You can get the latest NVDA along with other stuff you may want by making a custom installer and running it. And you can do this very easily by going to   www.ninite.com   ... Usually when I get a new computer to get stuff up and going quickly I just head over to ninite.com ... I use the checkboxes and the make ninite installer link then i run the tiny ninite installer, and the ninite installer heads out and grabs everything i requested. and then it installs it all for me, i don't have to go through installer wizards or anything like that. i just sit back and wait for ninite to do its stuff. i can tell when it's installing NVDA because I hear the NVDA sounds. Then when its done if i remember right it starts NVDA up for me. It's a nice quick accessible way to grab your favorite stuff and have it installed all in one go.

Well on a day to day basis I only use windows 7, and as long as its service
pack 1, then the latest nvda and the snaps work.
I notice that statistically Windows 7 is still on more machines than
windows 10 of any flavour. Something like 47 percent in fact, so if nvda did
not work there would be a lot of upset folk I'd imagine!
I think somebody should be a little more clear though and put the link to

Re: I've had it with Firefox

Ervin, Glenn
 

Another way that I do it is to forward that message back to the person.

So I do control + F

And then tab to the message body and arrow down to where the from field is, and for most lists, it shows the sender’s eMail address, usually with a less than and greater than sign on either side.

I copy and paste it without the signs in the “to” field.

So I shift + tab back to the “to” field and paste.

If you want to find the personal e-mail of a sender when you are using Thunderbird for e-mail, do the following.

 

1.  Open the message.

2.  Press shift + Tab until you hear the name of the desired sender.

3.  Press the context key (the key 2 positions to the left of the right control key.

4.  You are given a menu of items including copy e-mail address; add to address book, and send e-mail to.

5.  Make your choice and you should be good to go.

I'm not sure and since the thread now includes NVDA, I answered in another message concerning NVDA as well.  If the suggestions I made don't work, I'm not sure if I have other suggestions but since the topic has been broadened, my next answer is now on topic.

Gene, how in Thunderbird would I extract your personal e-mail address from your post to the list?

 

Seeing I was mainly discussing JAWS, not NVDA, I boobooed. I didn't read the e-mail headers correctly, and thought this was on a totally different list which sometimes discussez JFW. I consider my message further to be off topic for this list.

 

I'd like however to try your suggestion, and if it doesn't work, e-mail you privately so we can keep trouble shooting... that is... of course, if you're OK with that.

 

Alas, thank you for your help.

 

Chris.

With JAWS and not with NVDA?  Maybe you should use NVDA with Firefox for a time and JAWS with it only if necessary for some reason. 

 

Also, your problem may be that JAWS isn't lining up what is in the buffer with the actual control you want to work with.  Try the following:

Press the left mouse button instead of enter.  Don't route anything or change to any other cursor than the virtual PC cursor.  Just press the left mouse button instead of enter.

 

I have one or two other suggestions that might help but if this one solves the problem, trying the others won't be necessary.

I'm coming in on this thread extremely extremely late, so forgive me if
this's been already mentioned. I have managed to get so much mail in my
inbox these last few days of abscence, that I can't possibly go through
everything quickly.

One thing with JAWS 2018 and the latest build of Firefox 61 that I'm
seeing is an issue where you'll be on something which is clickable like
a link, or a dropdown, or something of sort. You either hit enter, or
space bar, and the stupid dad blamed thing either won't do anything at
all, or more 9 times out of 10, it will jump me focused on to my
taskbar. In fact, one time, I hit enter on a link, not even a mailto:
link, and the stupid thing opened my Windows 10 Mail app.

Excuse my language, but, what the hell!

Absolutely this didn't used to happen, and honestly, I can't remember
when it started. Ever since Firefox decided to go Quantom, things have
just totally totally gone down hill with it. I get that VFO is doing
their best with what they have to fix things, which I appreciate. In
their defense, I get totally that they're trying, but I wonder how much
of this is really VFO breaking things, vs. how much is Mozilla breaking
things. I'm inclined to think more the ladder.

I'm admittedly not the biggest fan of Chrome on the Windows platform,
maybe on Android, and on the mac, but not Windows. I'm not totally sure
why, but yeah... It's not something I can put my finger on. I just don't
care for it.

Anyway, I'd be curious if any of you all have seen this behavior as
well. I'm told that supposedly, I'm not the only one experiencing this.

Chris.

Re: new member with tons of question on NVDA.

there is another way to get NvDA up and running quickly, especially on a new system where you just want to get your favorite stuff going without hastle... You can get the latest NVDA along with other stuff you may want by making a custom installer and running it. And you can do this very easily by going to   www.ninite.com   ... Usually when I get a new computer to get stuff up and going quickly I just head over to ninite.com ... I use the checkboxes and the make ninite installer link then i run the tiny ninite installer, and the ninite installer heads out and grabs everything i requested. and then it installs it all for me, i don't have to go through installer wizards or anything like that. i just sit back and wait for ninite to do its stuff. i can tell when it's installing NVDA because I hear the NVDA sounds. Then when its done if i remember right it starts NVDA up for me. It's a nice quick accessible way to grab your favorite stuff and have it installed all in one go. 


Re: What happened to the UEB output tables?

 

I just checked and they do not seem to work. I opened a .dxb file and
appeared in computer braille although Duxbury is set to import files
in UEB BANA. Interestingly, a document in .docx opened in UEB BANA. I
tried the same thing with Jaws and the .dxb file opened in UEB BANA
whereas the word document opened in uncontracted braille.
Obviously both screen readers have some issues need fixing.
I am taking proofreading lessons and this issue is a matter of concern to me.

Since you are using Win 10, you won't get that ugly voice!  It will default to a Windows One Core voice  and these are very understandable. Only thing is they can't be sped up very much as most all the more natural sounding voices just fall apart and become like jibberish and not understandable if you speed them up very much.  But you'll like the One Core voice very much better than the eSpeak.  At least, that's true for myself anyhow.

Hi all,

I tried downloading NVDA once a couple years ago, and couldn’t stand that double ugly voice that came out of my computer when I tried to do what I was supposed to do to get things going. So, first question. What’s the easiest way to download the latest version of NVDA? Second. How do I learn the commands to make it work? And finally how do I get rid  of that terrible voice and get one I can understand and tolerate? I am running windows ten, and jaws 2018. Jim
