If you're good at remembering commands, that's fine. Heck, you can even create a desktop keyboard shortcut to launch it.

But not everyone is good at commands. Giving a solution that just involves Finding this icon who's name you may not remember but you'll know it when you see it, can be more useful for less experienced users.

Different strokes.

Re: my bluetooth headset doesn't pick up the first little bit of what nvda is saying?

That works. Seems there has to be a better solution though.
There isn't. Bluetooth is not really expected to be used for short bursts of noise. It is expected (by manufacturers) that it will be used for music, videos, etc. You don't really care if you miss the first couple ms of a sound, if the sound is three minutes long.
There probably isn't much content in that first few ms, and you can always rewind if there is.

They don't expect there to be periodic speech synthesis coming through the devices.
In the case where they do expect that, such as on a phone call, the phone call has enough of a natural noise floor to keep the amplification active, so it's not a problem.

Some manufacturers handle this better than others, but quite many of them prioritize power savings over that first few ms of sound.

It costs power, and therefore battery life, to keep the audio path open, amplified, and ready for action at all times.

The only way to fix this problem, is to keep the bluetooth device in an awake state. The only way you can do that, for these manufacturers which don't use gate circuits with a fast enough response, or for some other reason take long enough to power up that you miss words, is to send some constant sound to them.
That's what the Bluetooth Audio add-on does: it sends a noise floor at a high enough level that the bluetooth device stays active longer, and so you don't miss any speech.

Don't use it if your tooth device handles speech without difficulty. Do use it if it doesn't.

Re: CRM software

I had a question about a similar topic, does anyone know about a CRM
softwhare called VanillaSoft.

Hi Quinton, salesforce seems to be a common CRM solution that is fairly
accessible. I wish there were a few more hot keys for it, such as keys for
creating cases, verifying accounts and stuff like that, but for the most
part it is pretty accessible. CRM software is one of those things that is
tricky, it depends on how it’s written. For example, when I worked for
frontier, they used a software package called dpi. While you can get around
that software with not too much difficulty, a lot of the controls were not
labeled, so extra steps had to be taken to label the controls so you knew
where you were at. I hope that helps, and if you have any other questions,
please feel free to drop me an email.

Re: How Do I Stop the NVDA Updater from Monitoring Specific Addons?

 

You do not mention what version of NVDA you're using.  That matters, as "the newest" is, as far as add-ons go, "the newest compatible with the NVDA you're running."

The Browser Nav page notes that the last version compatible with NVDA 2019.X is Browser Nav version 1.1.   I believe version 1.9 is compatible with 2020.X (even though the actual add-on page for the stable version is still showing several versions back).

The latest stable version of Tony's Enhancements is 1.4, and Add-On Updater does not deal with development versions.  And even the development page for that add-on only has a link to version 1.4.  I can find absolutely no reference to a Version 1.7 being "live" anywhere.

You can always uninstall the add-ons, then manually download and reinstall them.  It could be that will cure the problem going forward.

How Do I Stop the NVDA Updater from Monitoring Specific Addons?

Kenny <kwashingtonbox@...>
 

Hello,


I'm noticing the excellent NVDA Add-on Updater doesn't always point to the newest version of specific NVDA add-ons I have installed.


BrowserNav
Current Version: 1.11
New Version: 1.9


Tony's enhancements
Current Version: 1.7
New Version: 1.4

Keep unchecking the box next to the add-ons being referenced, and clicking close, but the Add-on Updater keeps on notifying me there are new updates available which are actually older versions.


Any idea how to stop this? Don't want to uninstall the Add-on updater for it does well with other NVDA add-ons.


Re: NVDA and Jabber

Brian Moore
 

HI.  this is very dependant on which version you have.  12.8 and later are pretty good for accessibility.  However, we use 12.5 and it is very difficult with NVDa.  The jaws scripts work but are so slow as to be almost not worth using.

Re: about audio related issue on bluetooth headset

Tony Malykh
 

Yes, this strongly suggests that you have some weird configuration of your audio devices. Youtube sound must be going to another audio device. VLC must be hijacking your audio by switching your bluetooth device into headset mode. Probably your bluetooth dongle creates multiple audio devices and that confuses NVDA and all the other apps that try to play sound.

Why not just enter sndvol in the run dialogue. It is much quicker and has less key strokes. You can even switch play back devices from there via a tool bar that look to be new, unless I never explored it.

I usually solve this by using the Windows 10 volume mixer to increase the web browser's volume to a good level, and then turn NVDA down with the synth settings ring, or use the volume mixer to find a comfortable maximum for NVDA.

After I establish some normalized situation there, I then use NVDA's synth ring to change the volume as needed when I am playing or not playing other audio sources such as the browser, or Audacity, or whatever.

To get to the volume mixer, press Windows+B to get to your notification area. Then move down until you hear the volume object (it might say something like headphone/speaker volume 90% or similar).
Use your applications key, or press shift+F10 to open this menu, and move down to "volume mixer". Press enter on that, and you can then use tab to control the volume of the programs you have open.

Use alt+F4 to close the volume mixer. Or I suppose you could just alt+tab away from it and leave it open for later use.

Use the nvda key + shift key + the letter D and cycle it away from it.
You should hear aalways duck, no ducking, duck when out putting speech

CCB Backgrounder:

 

The CCB was founded in 1944 by a coalition of blind war veterans, schools of the blind and local chapters to create a national self-governing organization. The CCB was incorporated by Letters Patent on May 10, 1950 and is a registered charity under the provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada).

The purpose of the CCB is to give people with vision loss a distinctive and unique perspective before governments.  CCB deals with the ongoing effects of vision loss by encouraging active living and rehabilitation through peer support and social and recreational activities. 

CCB promotes measures to conserve sight, create a close relationship with the sighted community and provide employment opportunities.

 

The CCB recognizes that vision loss has no boundaries with respect to gender, income, ethnicity, culture, other disabilities or age.

The CCB understands in many instances vision loss is preventable and sometimes is symptomatic of other health issues.  For the 21st century, the CCB is committed to an integrated proactive health approach for early detection to improve the quality of life for all Canadians.

As the largest membership organization of the blind and partially sighted in Canada the CCB is the "Voice of the Blind".
