Re: Portable copy of NVDA not working on laptop

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

No it can be on a cd. Lots of issues could be the problem. How are you making sure that the new pc has the correct drivers for nvda to use your hardware. Can it actually read the cdd. It is probably a multisession one with no finalised record and I've found to my cost that some pcs just seem to not work on them..
What would I do, seriously, grab a sighted person get them to check sound mute is not on.
To me this is where some form of brute force stand alone bit of software is needed that can turn on any audio system if its disabled or off.
So may sighted people simply click the little box and never put it back.

I put this on a CD, but it won't work in my laptop, for which I need
voice to fix; audio got disabled; I hoped to use NVDA with my
TripleTalk device, but portable is not doing anything. Are there
special things to know about making a portable copy? Does it need to
be on a DVD instead of a CD? Any and all help appreciated.

No I have seen this response before. Firstly the first reply link failed to work and the second one did and those who, like me have a strange isp, can very often get messages out of order, so the earlier ones come in later on quite often here. Its a pain, but really we are talking a few bytes of text here, it not like twelve versions of a binary file after all!

Semi-topical: a blog that does accessible Youtube videos?

John Isige
 

Hi all. I'm asking this here because, in terms of the accessibility, this does relate to NVDA, and other screen readers too. I use Firefox and Chrome but ideally I'd like this to work with everything.


I'm thinking of starting a blog, and especially at first, it will be a bunch of Youtube videos and possibly some playlists. I've got a blog on wordpress.com and Blogger too I think, but I can't remember what they do for this. Basically, I want a blog that either just posts links you can click on yourself, or where the embedded Youtube player is accessible. I've tried a couple before, maybe Blogger and Posterus when it was active, and I'm pretty sure for both of them the embedded videos started out being accessible, and then that went away. Like I mean for me anyway, the embedded flash thingies just stopped showing up in the posts, it was like "here's an example of a crashing motorcycle. OK next here's an example of a broken waffle iron".


I know Wordpress has some accessibility stuff, well I hear it does, but I can never keep track of whether or not any of that is for wordpress.com or if I have to try to run my own copy of Wordpress, which I'd really like to avoid if at all possible. I mean, I'll do it if I have to, I've done it before quite a few years ago, but I'd really rather not. In fact ideally, I know you can do this with wordpress.com anyway, I'd like to just be able to email my posts in and then possibly log in and manipulate tags and such if I have to, and just have the videos show up as working things. I prefer wordpress.com to Blogger, but honestly I haven't messed with either blog in quite a while. But I've got an interesting idea now, well I think it's interesting anyway even if nobody else probably does, so if there are settings I can go mess with in there, that would be great.


Oh speaking of wordpress.com, is there an accessible theme? Right now the one I have keeps trying to scroll new posts in and it makes everything crazy slow and practically unusable. I'd really like something with X posts per page and page links, if it's there. If there's a FAQ or such that answers all of my questions, I'll happily do my own reading, just point me in the right direction. I just have no idea what to search for, on either question, so I thought I'd ask here because somebody probably knows.


Re: NVDA’s compatibility with the Braille Me Braille display from NBP?

Christo de Klerk
 

Is the Braille Me from NBP that you are referring to the same as the Braille Me from Innovision in India? If so, then yes, they have created an add-on for it which makes it work very well with NVDA.

If you are interested, I have created an e-mail list for the BrailleMe to which you can subscribe by sending a blank e-mail to:

brailleme+subscribe@groups.io

Kind regards

Anyone have used, or knows if the Braille Me display from National Braille Press, is compatible at this time with NVDA? If so, what’s the process for this because my student hooks her up to her Windows10 computer via USB; does NVDA+N to get into the NVDA menu; P for Preferences, and B for Braille. She gets to the list of compatible Braille displays, but the Braille Me doesn’t appear to be within! Where could she download the drivers, or what might the problem be? She was told by the folks at npb THAT nvda IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE BEFORE-MENTIONED DISPLAY. THANKS FOR ANY INFO YOU GUYS COULD GIVE ON THE MATTER.

About the Latest NVDA and emojis

 

Hello there,
I just updated NVDA to the latest version and I noticed that now it's possible to read emojis without any addon.
But my question is, it's possible to disable this mode of reading emojis? I mean, is there a setting to do it?

Thanks in advance,
Marcio


StationPlaylist Studio add-on 18.09.1 released, the next release to lock update channel to LTS #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Earlier today StationPlaylist Studio add-on 18.09.1 was released. This build fixes an issue discovered while testing the development snapshots where creating an HTML table transcript of playlist data would result in column header text showing up as a Python list string. As always, the new version is just an update check away (standalone via the add-on or through Add-on Updater).

 

An important notice about the next 18.09.x release: the next version after 18.09.1 is special in that it’ll be the first true long-term support version. This means, going forward, those subscribed to long-term support channel will receive 18.09.x LTS releases. If you’d like to stay on stable channel, please do NOT install that release, which will hit the air within 48 hours after release of NVDA 2018.3 final.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Windows OCR update in nvda

John Isige
 

If it's an image on Facebook, it sometimes helps to follow the link and
then pick the "view full size" link. It doesn't always make a
difference, but I've found that sometimes viewing it full size will get
me some text where simply highlighting the graphic, say with the arrows,
and hitting NVDA-r doesn't give me anything.

Hi Robert,

In Windows 10, navigate to the graphic with the text, then press
NVDA+r (the NVDA key will be either INSERT or CAPS LOCK, depending on
your settings).  NVDA should report that it is recognizing, and then
"done".  Once done is announced, you can use the regular navigation
and reading keys to read the text, as you would other text on the
page.  When done, press escape to return to the web page.

For anyone reading this using Windows 7 or 8, it's very similar using
the add-on, press NVDA+r but then you use the text review commands
rather than regular navigation.

Glad you were able to get on board. I admit I mostly became a member because of the movie vault, but they do seem to sell a good amount of useful stuff.

Hi, everyone,

 

Just want to admit that I was wrong about the blind mice megamall site not being accessible. I just became a member. To the person who said that the site is not accessible, you have to look at the form in browse mode. Then you can fill it out. I looked at the site in both firefox and internet explorer. This is a great lesson to learn for all of us--not to jump to conclusions.

NVDA’s compatibility with the Braille Me Braille display from NBP?

Gerardo Corripio
 

Anyone have used, or knows if the Braille Me display from National Braille Press, is compatible at this time with NVDA? If so, what’s the process for this because my student hooks her up to her Windows10 computer via USB; does NVDA+N to get into the NVDA menu; P for Preferences, and B for Braille. She gets to the list of compatible Braille displays, but the Braille Me doesn’t appear to be within! Where could she download the drivers, or what might the problem be? She was told by the folks at npb THAT nvda IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE BEFORE-MENTIONED DISPLAY. THANKS FOR ANY INFO YOU GUYS COULD GIVE ON THE MATTER.

Hi, Brian,

I'm glad you're enjoying the site now. I just purchased my first book from them. It's called Meals in a Mug. I do a lot of microwave cooking so this book will be very helpful. I'll check out the movie vault too.

You can access most likely the same described movies without having to give up your email address by visiting this site:

Re: Windows OCR update in nvda

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Robert,

As Brian noted, NVDA uses Microsoft's built-in OCR in Windows 10 (which is why it is only built-in on Windows 10 and you need the add-on for earlier Windows versions).

Microsoft are evolving Windows 10 with their regular updates, and presumably this also involves improving the OCR.

In the meantime, have you got an example image or link which isn't working for you?

Kind regards

Quentin.

Subject: [nvda] Windows OCR update in nvda


Hi, wondering if there is development or advancement on the Windows OCR in nvda or with the future release for recognition of graphics with text content?
It's been a while I have not seen update from this and tried to test this as well to beta version of nvda and unlikely the OCR function still not working perfectly because some text could read and some text could not recognize fully like giving such blank when pressing the Insert/NVDA plus R


Also, could the OCR recognizes fully the graphics for the image itself? Thanks.
