Hi.

Its not officially on their website or in fact twitter, but free-codecs has published a page on winamp 5.8 beta, indicating that v6 will be out later this year.

I don't know how these guys get the information before others do and while I havn't downloaded this version since its not official as such its worth mentioning anyway.

Hi Group,


I am wondering if this is a hack site.  I visit the page and I keep clicking on the Winamp 5.8 beta and another window opens up and demands that I download a tool of some sort to update all my Windows ten drivers.  I never see the actual download start or the download link that actually leads to the beginning of a download.

Re: version of an application with nvda

Gene
 

You can usually do so by typing alt to open the menus, then typing h to open help, then a to open the about dialog.  So the sequence is alt h then a.  The number will be read.  If it isn't, use NVDA key b to have the dialog read.
 
You are doing this by using program commands.  JAWS uses proprietary commands to do something for which there is no reason.  It keeps people from learning the Windows ways of doing the things and makes them more dependent on JAWS.

Re: speech rate control

Gene
 

Someone else presented the short way.  If you didn’t see the message, hold control NVDA key and, while doing so, up or down arrow.  .  I never use it but I tried it after sending my message. 
 
You'll have to see if you like it.  Instead of skipping by one increment, the fast method skips by five increments.  this may or may not give you the control over speed you want.
 
If you change something else, such as the voice pitch, use the left and right arrows to move around the options until you get to speed.  Then use up and down arrow to change the speed.  I think it remembers what you set last so if you move to speed, you won't have to keep moving to speed.

You are right that this is cumbersome.

I think that nvda developers or those designing addons should come up
with the simpler method activated by a key command.

Hi Gene

Thank you, I got it.

It is actually nvda key + ctrl up and down arrows to control the speech rate.

Thanks once again.

Re: Review Cursor

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Andy,

NVDA works slightly differently to Jaws in this regard, however the overall aim is the same: to get to controls on screen that you can't access with the regular keyboard.

NVDA uses "object navigation" to move between "objects" on screen.  An object might be the ribbon in Word, the toolbars, the edit area and the status bar.  You can go "into" an object and see the objects it contains.  The ribbon in word for instance, contains the home ribbon, the insert ribbon, the view ribbon and so on, and inside each of those ribbons are the individual options like making text bold, or underlined, or change the style.  You can access the ribbon with the keyboard anyway, but it is still a good example of objects (hopefully).

The review cursor lets you read the text within the current object.  In the Basic Training for NVDA module, I use the example of the "winver" dialog which displays information about the version of Windows you are using (press the WINDOWS key, type WINVER and press ENTER to open it).  You can move up and down through the lines or word by word or character by character - like you can with normal text, but since it isn't accessible with the normal keyboard commands, it uses different commands.

I thought it best to give you the overview of those two features there rather than the keystrokes, since there are quite a few, and they vary between desktop keyboard layout and laptop keyboard layout.  I would strongly recommend the Basic Training for NVDA to give you a more complete idea of the review cursor and object navigation.  You can find the book for purchase in electronic format, audio or hardcopy Braille from our shop: http://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

You can also read a sample chapter, which happens to be the one on the review cursor from the link on: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/basic-training-for-nvda-ebook/

Chapter 5 in the User Guide does give all the relevant keystrokes, although without the in-depth explanation and step-by-step activities that you get in the training material: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#NavigatingWithNVDA

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: speech rate control

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Marisane,

Gene's method involves opening NVDA's Speech settings.  As he noted, it's not the quickest way you were after, but offers slightly finer grained control over adjustment.

There is a shortcut key directly which is NVDA+control+up arrow to increase speech rate and NVDA+control+down arrow to decrease speech rate.

Press NVDA+control+left arrow or NVDA+control+right arrow to change which speech setting is adjusted (speech rate, pitch, volume, voice) with NVDA+control+up or down arrow, but rate is the default.

Regards

Quentin.

We are still using 6.5 and I am also not able to access our VMcenter,

So in conclusion the command line will help you much more then the

that not all things might be done with a screenreader.

In a secure environment, you can run NVDA with the --secure command line argument which does disable the python console (as well as disabling the add-on manager).
