Hey again, Cris,


What's Vitalsource Bookshelf supposed to do?

I installed it, created an account, but it seems not to be an ebook reader.

Can you read your own books with it, ore are you forced to borrow or buy
theirs?

Hi, everyone. Is there a good free EPUB reader that works on Windows 10
and is accessible with NVDA? I know you can read EPUB files with
Microsoft Edge, but I was unsure of how well that works since I don't
use Edge very much at all. I have Adobe Digital Editions, and reading
books is accessible, but the list of books in my library isn't. It
doesn't read any of the information about the book, so I have to use
OCR
to see which book I'm focused on, which is really annoying. I do like
how Adobe Digital Editions syncs all books I add to my library with my
Adobe account, but I'm willing to do without that if there's a more
accessible alternative. Does anyone know of one? Thanks.

Re: How to Attach Text Labels to Shortcut Keys?

Kenny <kwashingtonbox@...>
 

Oh! Wasn't aware creation of such a feature was attempted before. Just started using NVDA a week ago.


Would be nice if something that provided such functionality could be added though.

Ah we are back to this one again.
I do have an add on but as has been said before, it can say what you like, but its not actually confirming a shortcut has actually worked. The basic code looks very simple to customise though. I may have the add on archived around but its set for cut  paste copy etc at the moment and will report the keys for these even if the function is not available in the software. There was an attempt to write a more intelligent way, but it turned out to be slow and triggered spurious memory errors in word.

Is there any way for me to attach a text label to shortcut keys to be

For example: When I press [F12] to copy last spoken string to clipboard.
I hear a beep, but I rather have it say "Copied to clipboard" instead.


 Is there anyway for me to do this?

Re: Accessible EPUB Reader

Hello Jacob,


I don't know why it gave me an error here.

However, it was an experiment, because I'm very phappy with Qread and Edge, which has proved to be really good at the job.


I read ebooks on my android phone only when I want to listen to them, because I prefer braille and that I can only really do on this pc.

My braille display doesn't have a keyboard, so it's hard to navigate books with ti.

Re: Choosing a Laptop

Josh Kennedy
 

virtual machines work just fine also on my son's lenovo and on my hp with similar AMD parts in it. 


Re: Choosing a Laptop

Josh Kennedy
 

My son's lenovo with AMD a12 processor works great. it had some bloatware, but windows10 has a special reset tool that gets rid of all bloatware and unneeded junk. I used it, and his laptop works great ever since. He plays console games like grand theft auto five on it, and other console type games. got it brand new off amazon for around $360. Both our AMD laptops never get hot, they run nice and cool like cell phones. Even when he plays power hungry games his fan may only go up to half of its full speed, if that. 


Re: Choosing a Laptop

Josh Kennedy
 

What's wrong with AMD processors and parts? Nobody on here has mentioned AMD. My son has a top of the line gaming laptop with AMD parts, its brand new. and guess what, we got it off amazon for around $360. in the united states. My laptop with AMD a6 processor was on sale at the time for $250 on amazon . it has a dvd burner and everything. I strongly recommend laptops with AMD from amazon.

Hello,


I think epub Reader is still available in Firefox.


I too bought Qread years ago, and I use it all the time, although
it parses books, and doesn't maintain the links and format.


Adobe Digital Editions is accessible too, although I don't seem
to be able to navigate through the links.


A couple of days ago, quite by chance, I discovered that there's
an epub reader in Edge as well. It does a fair job, I think,
especially with commercial ebooks, because you can navigate
through links very easily and consistently.

I had difficulty with epubs that had been converted from some
other format, and had no internal links. After the first page, I
couldn't proceed to the next, but I believe this is because I
don't know how to do that, rather than because it can't be done.


Any suggestions along these lines would be greatly appreciated.

Remember though, ePub books are basically just zipped HTML files.

Re: occasional problem with v. 18.1

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

Well to be honest i never ever use hibernate as so many bits of software seem to come back not working right so one has to close them and open them again, and by the time I've done all that stuff, i might have well have rebooted the machine and launched to software in any case. My guess is that some parameters are simply not re read when the machine restarts after what is in effect a save of the machines state. If any software does only one read of a parameter, say when its started, then unless that is actually stored it can be lost it seems.
I suppose you have tried a shut down of nvda before hibernate then a ree start when its open again?
That would at least prove if its nvda or the machines sound drivers.

Subject: [nvda] occasional problem with v. 18.1


Hi,
I have NVDA 18.1 on a laptop that's running up to date Windows 7. I tend to keep this laptop hibernated when not using it and I shut down and restart weekly for the Windows updates.
Since updating my NVDA to 18.1 I frequently find there's no sound when I open the laptop. I've used the key command for starting/restarting NVDA but still no sound. A sighted person has told me that the NVDA sign in dialogue is on the screen even though there's no sound and the laptop is NOT muted.
Fiddling around, escape key and such, gets me some sound even if I end up finding two NVDA icons in the system tray after regaining sound. I click on one of those and it goes away.
I apologize if this explanation sounds confusing... Do any of you have any idea what's going on and what I could do to avoid the problem?

Also, on another issue, does the newest Firefox work with NVDA and Win7, or should I continue to wait before updating my Firefox?

Thanks,
LM
