Re: Discrepancy Between NVDA and Youtube sounds

 

I tried all suggestions but nothing changed.
In the end I switched to Google Crome where the sound of Youtube
videos play well.
My guess is that the problem is Flash player which Firefox uses to
play videos.
Thanks.

They are stripped. We did not get Larry's attachment. If you can, Larry, please send me a copy at <luke@...>.

I'll start a public web based list of servers as soon as I collect a few to put on it.

Re: new world virtual mailer

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


It looks as though it is a NVDA problem


I just tried the same process with window eyes 9.5 and repeated the same process finding a product in the mailer say kiwi fruit then pressing the enter key on it. A box appears with weight, price etc then to make it disappear use the escape key.


So why can jaws see it plus window eyes?


I thought it was on there side but seems not to be.


I guess it will not get fixed then unless a ticket goes in or others can reproduce the same problem.

Hi guys


I am wondering if some one can tell me the following.


If I go to the following website at http://www.newworld.co.nz then go down to the virtual mailer and press the enter key on it up will come the virtual mailer You might have to jump down to see what is been sold in it.

I am not sure how much focus NVDA gets on it but jumping down by buttons then arr-owing down will get you to it.

Even though NVDA reads out the product when you press the enter key on it to find out more there is like a window that comes up It will tell you the price etc and you can add it to a list but for some reason NVDA does not see this pop up with the information.


yet when I tested the same thing with jaws I picked out a product from the list pressed the enter key on it then I think it is a box come up with information on it and price etc and to add to list.

When I pressed the enter key on the product I think I used the letter H for headings then arrowed down to get more info. But the same process does not work for NVDA.


This is using latest version of google chrome and the latest version of the new edge as well as nvda 2020.1


Could some one put in a ticket for it and or see what is happening.


I downloaded the mailer and I know for a fact that is not accessible to a screen reader user it is just scanned images.



Gene nz


Yet NVDA does not see it. I have tried quite a few ways to bring it up. Could some one try to reproduce the same problem I am guessing this is a bug that will need to be fixed.





Re: CodeFactory eloquence won't start anymore

 

Well any major build you just deactivate first.

I had a server issue with the server being offline but no issue.

The thing is vocaliser/eloquence doesn't always check.

From time to time it checks to see if its online, which means can it connect to the server.

But it doesn't do it all the time, which means you can go without it doing that for days and of course its randum.

I have my key and make sure to deactivate the keys before any major upgrade.

However the same happened with jaws when I used it and some other programs.

At least unlike some games every time you updated windows the reg key changed all the time that was a pain.

Hi Group,

I also had this happen with the SAPI 5 version of Eloquence. Apparently, with the latest Windows update, it somehow deactivated the license key.  I saved my license key in the e-mail that authorized the sale and  so it was a simple matter to reauthorize by opening the product via the desktop icon and then clicking the enter key button and pasting in the key.  It reauthorized the software.  I wish they would make the necessary change in the software that would allow Windows to update without this random happening.

Hello everyone,





I don't know if I should write here, but it's mostly to see if others

had this issue.  Perhaps I was unlucky.  I often am with technology.





So I purchased CodeFactory eloquence and it worked well... until it

didn't.  Now my profile with Eloquence in it won't start. When

selecting it I have a dialog telling me that CodeFactory will open

settings to check registration.  I say okay and yes when Windows asks me

if this software should be allowed to perform admin tasks. The settings

open... but on clicking on ok I get a simple error: couldn't load

synthesizer.  This happens if I select the speech synthesizer in NVDA's

settings as well.





So I would guess: not an NVDA bug, most likely a CodeFactory bug.

Still, as far as I know, things worked great before the update of the

last NVDA version (I'm running on 2020.1 now).  Then again, it can

hardly be a Python version error, since I don't expect major changes

took place in Python version between these NVDA versions.





Has anyone experienced similar issues?  And found a quick fix?  I like

quick fixes... if they hold.





Thanks!

Re: end of the line for finereader

 

No it hasn't but the menu access issues still exist.

At any rate I concidder this topic closed, as I am now using text cloner which is while not a mainstream product at least stable and fast.

I don't have any plans to switch back to abbyy at least for myself, maybe I will try again later on, but maybe I won't.

For the systems I use which are not my own maybe I will use it again as I do like it.

But for what I use and need I have something that will work.

Re: remote servers

Hi


there was a list that went across quite a while ago for those servers. I thought I might of still had a copy but seems I have not.


I do not even know what the email might of been called if you are lucky some thing like nvda servers? might be able to find in the archive


but do not know if it was on this list i can not remember which list we were on this one or the old one around that time.

Re: remote servers

There have been a bunch that have scome and gone over the last few years. what I ended up doing is putting up my own on a machine that has a public ip address and use it..


I also set up a free dynamic dns account on that machine in case its IP changes. Pretty unlikely but it could happen and I have the updater client installed so the dynamic name will always resolve unless the internet connection itself goes down in which case, name resolution wouldn't matter.


There are prebuilt binaries for most platforms for the NVDA remote server or you can compile your own from source if you want to do that too.

IBM Gonvda add on. It won't make it to the official list. You might be able to find the one with the DLL included. It sounds just like eloquence, cuts off a bit, but works, and works with nvda 19.x and higher.
