Hi all.

Well, looks like fine reader just had a name change since I have gotten it.

It seems to be called fine reader 15 pdf now.

Since support and abbyy don't seem to deem it important to fix the accessibility issues and since it all seems locked to business now I think it is time for me to cut my losses and upgrade.

The last version was released at the end of the year.

What ocr program should I use instead of abbyy fine reader.









Re: switching sound cards with NVDA

Luke Davis
 

No, but that is an excellent idea.

Will you please create a feature request issue for it? https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues

The idea being a (default unassigned) gesture to cycle through the available sound devices.

That could solve several problems, such as when connecting a new sound device and Windows loses track of what should be default, or Windows and NVDA do their flip-flop of default and selected, as sometimes happens.

Hi,


you still can get Finereader 15 Standard or corporate.

Re: end of the line for finereader

 

I don't see how a name change ties into accessibility in any way, but it's possible I missed something because your formatting was so broken up. But, anyway, below are alternatives for opening PDF files.

  1. Opening them in Microsoft word. Word 2016 or later will convert most PDF's into a workable state, where you can then save it in an alternative format.
  2. Use this program. Codex.
  3. Adobe Reader can convert PDF to text. It's not gonna look very clean, though.

Yes, turn it on with nvda shift s, then tab twice, I believe? Read the manual for more info, as I'm giving you the long and short of it.

Re: Stop NVDA from automatically reading media on webpages

 

hello. i wish to know

I'm not sure the subject line accurately describes my issue, but it seems

reading of the articles themselves. Here is an example of a webpage:
https://www.lovefood.com/recipes/60477/denis-cotters-black-bean-soup-with-chocolate-and-chillies

As I tried to read the recipe, the screenreader is also reading some sort
of a flash object that is promoting other articles. Is there a way to stop
this? It seems like either I should be able to stop the screenreader from
announcing this, or I should be able to stop Google Chrome from displaying
it. I have used ad blockers in the past, but it seems like many webpages
now will not allow you to access their resources if you are using an ad
blocker, so I wonder if there is some other tool that I could use.

Braille input focus 40 blue 5th gen and NVDA

Justin Harford
 

Greetings everyone

I'm trying to learn about the braille display offerings out there to get a sense of a good match. I was recommended to take a look at the focus 40 blue fifth-generation. I read through their documentation and it almost sort of sounds like according to the brochure the ability to input braille is limited to when you are using JAWS, but when I look at the online manual from the company, it vaguely seems like any screenreader that supports braille input would work. Has anyone successfully used the focus 40 blue with NVDA to input braille?
