Read-all problem with a website

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi all,

I subscribe to a regular email called Pulse, Writings from the world of Medicine. Their emails have recently changed so that you get to read the first paragraph and then have to visit a website to read the rest of the article.

I find that this website doesn't work very smoothly with NVDA using the Read All method, and I'm wondering if other people have the same result.

so you can hear what I hear, I recorded the first few paragraphs and the mp3 file is saved on my website space. What you'll hear is that the end few words of a paragraph get repeated at the start of the next paragraph, and sometimes good chunks of a sentence don't get spoken at all (the text not being spoken isn't quite so evident in the mp3 extract, but it was very noticeable further down the article). This is the link to my mp3 extract:
http://gilesturnbullpoet.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Pulse-article-A-Question-of-Trust.mp3

And this is the link to the actual website article:
https://pulsevoices.org/index.php/stories/a-question-of-trust

Just to clarify, the repeated words are not repeated in the actual text, and the skipped words are present in the actual text.

In the recording I'm using the SAPI5 voice Zira at speed 85, and I can confirm it is also producing the same effects at slower speeds, as it is if I change the voice to SAPI5 voice Hazel. I'm using NVDA Version: 2020.1, windows 10 Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.900), and am getting these effects in both Mozilla Firefox version 78.0.1 (64-bit) and Google Chrome (which is up to date) Version 83.0.4103.116 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Does anybody know if this is an NVDA issue, or if it's something I can report to the Pulse organisation for them to hopefully sort out?

Thanks,

Giles

Hi


You might need some sighted help to do the following.


This is off my website and it may depend on the version you are using of nvda.


One part is for the older nvda and one for the newer nvda do not enter those details only the lines below each one.


Do you know the nvda version?


The very last part was for the run com tool but if you have done that and rebooted and it is still playing up look for your version number of nvda.


The later one has fixed it also on later versions of windows .


hope it helps


Troubleshooting - NVDA says “unknown” or “pane” in all of your browsers, Mozilla Thunderbird email client and other places
If for some reason you have problems with NVDA saying “unknown” or “pane” check for the following symptoms:

In all of your browsers, or the Mozilla Thunderbird email client, no matter what you do, you still hear “unknown” or “pane”.

In the browser, email client and other menus you notice you cannot get into your menus, or you are unable to use the quick navigation keys

When you have been told the page is loaded and notice strange behaviour

Mozilla Thunderbird saying unknown while you try to navigate it

Your applications key does not work with it being spoken out and other strange behaviour in Windows

The running applications icons are not being spoken out
It might be a good idea to do the following:
Please note: If you are hearing “unknown” or “pane” (as discussed above) NVDA might seem like it is still working properly but it may not be completely in Windows and other programmes.
You could try the following solution which will allow you to re-register your dll files in case they are causing the problem.
Press the Windows key then type the following into the search box. Type in “command prompt”. Once you have located command prompt, in the search results, press the Applications key to bring up the context menu. Arrow down to select “run as administrator” and press the Enter key. This will take you to a command prompt window. This will not be spoken out. You may need sighted assistance for this.
Type in the following command/s:
Old NVDA, Pre 2019.3
import comtypes,ctypes;p=comtypes.typeinfo.LoadTypeLibEx(r"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll");ctypes.windll.oleaut32.RegisterTypeLib(p,ur"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll", None)
Current NVDA 2019.3 onward
import comtypes,ctypes;p=comtypes.typeinfo.LoadTypeLibEx(r"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll");ctypes.windll.oleaut32.RegisterTypeLib(p,r"c:\windows\syswow64\oleacc.dll", None)

This should re-register all components in the system32 folder.
When it is finished, you can close the command prompt window with the Alt + F4 key. You should notice now where NVDA was saying “unknown” as in some examples given, NVDA should now read the icons in the running applications area of Windows, speak the content of the webpage and menus, and also in Mozilla Thunderbird and other places in Windows including the Windows applications context menu.
Run COM Registration Fixing tool
If you are getting any of the following problems below - with Windows unregistering some of the files needed by NVDA - the following tool section in NVDA will get you out of trouble. To access this tool press the NVDA key + letter N while NVDA is running. Arrow down to the tools menu. A submenu will come up. Arrow down to the menu called Run COM Registration Fixing tool... then press the Enter key.  It should register the files needed by NVDA.

The earlier issue seemed to relate to a windows update but I dont think there was an update in this case today.

Hello.
Is possible that the Com Registration Fixing Tool work good.
But in the last versions of Windows 10, in somme cases, this tool work but NVDA says unknown, not read in the browser and other programs, and the user need restore Windows to default.

Re: NVDA saying unknown again in browsers

 

Well I'd check that you have the latest versions of chrome and edge and components of your brousers in about:components.

Components update all the time.

Edge has an update today, chrome either has had one or will have one soon to catch up.

Re: NVDA saying unknown again in browsers

 

Cearbhall,

           Have you tried restarting NVDA with all add-ons disabled and seeing if the issue persists?   If not, try that.  If the issue stops, then use Add-Ons Manager to disable (but not remove) all of your add-ons and then re-enable them one by one until the issue recurs.

Hi.

With the loss of freedb, especially for a lot of older software using it that just doesn't work.

freedb.goldwave.ca is the one goldwave made for its software but it may work for other things to.

At any rate going to the address mentioned via a web program may get some people having a laugh.

Hello All,

What follows is a request that is for your benefit as a member, and the
benefit for those who administer whatever groups you may be a member of on
Groups.io.

Every time you subscribe anew, you are put back on moderated status until
your first message is approved by the group owner or moderator.  This is how
Groups.io does things by default, and it's a great spam control mechanism.
And if you unsubscribe, and later subscribe again, you are treated as though
you are a brand new member and will be put on moderated status until your
first message (for the most recent subscription cycle) is approved.

This can be easily avoided by not unsubscribing from a group if you decide
you want a vacation from it for a while, but suspect you'll want to jump
back in again later.  Sending a message to nvda+nomail@nvda.groups.io (or
the equivalent for whatever group you wish to take a vacation from) will
immediately suspend delivery of all group email to you, regardless of
whether you were receiving it as individual messages, digests, or other
format you chose.  You can resume email participation again, without losing
your member status or being subjected to new member moderation, if you use
the nomail address to suspend messages.  To jump back in again send a
message to one of the following, depending on the message delivery you
want:

* nvda+single@nvda.groups.io ( nvda+single@nvda.groups.io ) deliver each
message posted to the group to your inbox
* nvda+fulldigest@nvda.groups.io ( nvda+fulldigest@nvda.groups.io ) deliver
a full-featured digest
* nvda+digest@nvda.groups.io ( nvda+digest@nvda.groups.io ) deliver a
plain-text digest
* nvda+summary@nvda.groups.io ( nvda+summary@nvda.groups.io ) deliver a
daily summary

Email from any Groups.io group can be managed that way for a group you
really aren't intending to permanently leave.  It makes your rejoining, when
you do it, instantaneous with the same unmoderated status you had prior to
stopping email delivery.  It also makes it easier for group owners and
moderators, who won't have to approve you again.

locked Re: is firefox quantum now works well with nvda without any crash or major issue?

 

Lots of good information has been shared in this topic, but it has also now been thoroughly exhausted.  It is being locked.

Takeaways should be:

1.  Any given program can crash for any one of a number of reasons.

2.  If that program is one you absolutely must use, then going through the diagnostic steps to determine the cause of the crash will be necessary.  If there exist alternatives, then at least in the short term, using those should be explored.

3. Certain web browsers can be very cranky about certain web pages or web sites.  If that's the case, definitely try another browser to access said web pages or sites.

4. NVDA has been working fine with the currently supported versions of all mainstream web browsers, and some less than mainstream ones, as a general rule.  This strongly suggests that crashes for anyone are likely to be idiosyncratic to something about their own machine's ecosystem.  What that something is would require going through the sequence of diagnostic steps necessary to narrow it down.

5. The use of out-of-support software, be it web browsers, operating systems, or otherwise is bound to eventually lead to issues.  Always has, always will.  Software, like hardware (and not just computer hardware), has a finite service life and it is expected that it will need to be replaced at predictable intervals.

Zahra, I myself have had firefox crash on me. With my dying 7 box. I don’t remember witch version I had. I was using it with my food safe class and it often crashed on me.  I thought it was the dying computer. I was using the latest version of NVDA  from last year even.  When that box finally died I ended up with this ten box. I completed my food safe course using chrome.  I found it was like firefox.  I never gave it a thought and I’m using Chrome and edge.  Chrome has been my default browser since I  got this ten box.  I can’t remember what site I used to do the food safe with. But it used either Firefox or Chrome.  If it hadden’t been for NVDA I would not have completed that course alone! I would have had to have constant help!

firefox 61 was completely unusable for me.

Firefox (very latest version as of this writing, 78.0.1) has been working fine with NVDA for as long as I can remember.  So do the latest versions of Chrome, new Edge and Edge Dev, and Brave (and I'd imagine all Chromium-based browsers).

As has already been mentioned the various Firefox derivatives seem to work just fine, too.

It is a fact that certain web browsers will "play better" with certain webpages, just as there are times that certain screen readers will "play better" with certain programs (including web browsers).  You (any you) have always got to be prepared to use an alternate screen reader or program (most often web browser) when circumstances dictate that.

You know, Zahra, you have already been given explicit instructions on where and how to start, but have chosen to ignore those.  Until, and unless, you get yourself logged in to the Groups.io website, and check the account setting I've already mentioned, there would be absolutely, positively no point in doing anything else, for that simple change may be it.

Help is a two way street, and ignoring taking the steps given by potential (or actual) assistants doesn't encourage further assistance to be forthcoming.
