Re: reading journal articles with nvda

Jason White
 

The problems are mostly with the file format in which you receive the material (e.g., untagged PDF) rather than with NVDA.

 

If it’s PDF, running ABBYY FineReader on it to convert to HTML or Microsoft Word format should give better results – even if the original PDF contains text characters rather than merely images of text.

It is a little unclear what you mean. Are you talking about the proprietary header/ footer identifiers in many  PDF versions of Journals?

When I was doing my PhD, if there were annoying header ore  footer information labels, I would simply transfer all the text to something like MS Word,  or even Wordpad, select and copy the footer text  and then press control G  to simply find and replace all the instances of the footer/header  text  with a space.

This would certainly give you a smoother reading experience with NVDA say all function though it may be important to retain any page number information for referencing purposes.

You can specify how NVDA treats numbers in settings so this should not be specific to any document type.

Re: Question on settings

Chris Mullins
 

 

Hi

The first question is solved by switching off echo typed character using NVDA+2 on number row but personally, I leave it on to re-assure myself I’ve typed the correct letter.  I have replicated the problem you experienced in question 2 and indeed, NVDA+UpArrow always spoke the line previous to the one containing the system caret, irrespective of whether you use up or down arrows to position on a folder.  When I tried a second time to replicate the issue, NVDA+UpArrow was working correctly, so I think this may be an intermittent fault.  I must confess, I never use NVDA+UpArrow, so had not noticed a problem.  I just tap up arrow followed by down arrow to check my position in the tree view.

 

Cheers

Re: Advantages of NVDA over narrator on public terminals

Hi Brian,


I agree that NVDA is more intuitive than Narrator in most cases. Narrator on Windows 10 does work quite well.  At this point, the keystrokes are so different than NVDA that I keep forgetting how to use them every time I experiment with Narrator.  I bet if I had started out with Narrator, I would find it quite usable with Windows 10.

However if you are envisaging allowing users to use it as a portable solution, then on windows 10, NVDA cannot access stuff that Narrator can, simply because it has no access to the internal API for security reasons. It was better on Windows 7 though, as that narrator was very awful and NVDA did not have to rely on uia as much.

Hi guys,


I got asked this question about the advantages of NVDA over Narrator on public terminals where ever these may be...


I am talking about public terminals that the sighted can use where ever these may be. Places like libraries, information centres airports (where these terminals are) as well etcetera. The commercial screen readers are not in the picture because of price.


The question is below:


" My question to you is what advantages would it give our blind or visually impaired customers having both Windows 10 Narrator and NVDA available to use on public computers? I would be interested in supporting installing it at if there were advantages and we could work thru any technical issues. Let me know what you think".


This same question could also come up at any IT department that is approached to install NVDA to a public terminal (where ever these may be). The above is used as an example.

I am guessing that for any technical information - that could be pointed towards the developers of the NVDA project.


They could be using a windows 7 machine right up to Windows 10.


Looking forward to your feedback on advantages of NVDA over Narrator. Thanks everyone.

Yes and the very first incarnation was put together by an Ex Dolphin writer.
I think the problem is that Microsoft are concentrating on their software, having no control over the actual software in use. They would then be playing catch up just like the other screenreaders on 3rd party applications.

Narrator in Windows 10 is considerably more capable from discussions I've seen here than Narrator on Windows 7. I have Windows 7. Narrator is just the shell of a screen-reader in that version of Windows, alright for emergencies where you lose the use of a competent screen-reader for some reason but it would be next to useless on a public terminal because it is next to useless everywhere.



also, I know that Narrator is moving toward using more standard screen-reader commands in Windows 10. I don't know how far that move has gone but I would think that a lot more screen-reader users would regularly use NVDA. There is a certain level of reasonable access and reasonable standardization and unless Narrator has changed very dramatically recently in Windows 10, it doesn't meet those needs. Plus, from discussions I've seen here, Narrator is limited to Microsoft programs in terms of providing reasonable or something like reasonable access. Unless these public terminals provide only Microsoft programs, that is another area of inaccessibility when using Narrator. The blind user would be either fully or mostly limited to Microsoft programs on the machine. If the machine has other programs on it, it appears from discussions I've seen on list, that Narrator wouldn't work adequately, if at all.

I'm not at all sure why NVDA up arrow is reading the wrong line, but try making sure you are using object review and see if that helps. do you know the commands to change among the different review modes? I won't go into details here, but use the command numpad insert numpad one to move one way through the choices and numpad insert numpad 7 to move the other direction through the choices. Stop on object navigation. If it isn't exactly called that, it will definitely begin with the word "object." See if that corrects the problem. I ssuspect the command for reading the current line may not work properly in screen review mode.

I downloaded this but it fell over at install, claiming it could not open a file called elevator.exe fro writing. I ignored it, then it claimed the database of media was corrupted and although it played stuff the message went around and around. so I put the machine back to before the install, putting the old version back.
All was OK except for some level adjusting needing to be done in the volume controls for running programs dialogue.
So I suspect there is a bug in the installer, and a word of warning also, unchecki stopped it installing some other software as well, so be aware the latest archive has another payload as well as Winamp.

It may well be that if you completely uninstall Winamp and start again, it will be fine but there seems so little difference between the old latest and the new latest, I'm tempted not to bother again.

Last time I had issues with the detection of ram sticks as portable players and then winamp crashed, so I don't want all that junk again.

Hi Brian,


I always use the custom install and uncheck the visualizations, quick

using) installation on the machine.

I used NVDA during the install, and I have Unchecky on my system which
runs Win10 Home, 64-bit, Version 1809 [yes, I got an early update that
worked], Build 17763. Here is what I encountered:

Dialog 1: Opening Dialog, just hit the Next button

Dialog 2: Install type (Standard versus Custom). Unchecky, if you're
using it, switches any installer that gives standard and custom
options to custom, since if there is bundled software the only way it
will be exposed for a user to choose or decline is with a custom
install. In the case of Winamp I can report that there is no bundled
software, so if you wish to choose the standard install you should be
safe. That being said, you will probably not get the next dialog for
choosing components you wish to install, so if you wish to pick and
choose, keep/choose the custom option. I proceeded with Custom. Next
button.

Dialog 3: Install Location. Uses the Program Files (x86) Winamp
folder, which is precisely as expected. Next button.

Dialog 4: Choose Components. Defaults to Full with all skins,
visualizations, etc. There are three other options to choose from,
and no matter which you choose the component tree changes to indicate
via checkboxes what components are/are not installed with that
option. You can customize any of them. I just went with Full. Next
button.

Dialog 5: Choose Start Options. Has three checkboxes: Start Menu
Entry, Quick Launch Icon, Desktop Icon.
Next button

Dialog 6: This is the last true Winamp dialog, however, you will get
another UAC dialog right after you launch Winamp for the first time
just like you do when you launch the installer. The only thing on
this dialog is a checkbox asking if you want to launch Winamp when
finished and the close (or maybe it was finish) button.

NOTE: If using NVDA, pay attention to the rising beep indicator to
determine when the install is actually complete. The Winamp installer
exposes each and every item during the install to NVDA, so it keeps
reading and reading and reading well after Dialog 6 above has been
presented and I have no idea how long this might keep going on as I
stopped it about 30 seconds or so after I saw that the install had
completed (and it did complete when the beep indicator tells you it did).

*/The terrible state of public education has paid huge dividends in
ignorance. Huge. We now have a country that can be told blatant lies
— easily checkable, blatant lies — and I’m not talking about the
covert workings of the CIA. When we have a terrorist attack, on
September 11, 2001 with 19 men — 15 of them are Saudis — and five
minutes later the whole country thinks they’re from Iraq — how can you
have faith in the public? This is an easily checkable fact. The whole
country is like the O.J. Simpson jurors./*

Remember that not ebery country, and everyone has the same economics. Here in Mexico, Eloquence would cost mxn1200; imagine if you guys in the States would have to buy en Eloquence for usd1200? If NVDA promotes not using cracked Eloquence, why not then contract with blindness organizations here in Mexico, for instance, so that I could get a reduced price on this speech engine?
