Re: advisory: Windows 10 App Essentials 18.09 will no longer let you select update channel from the add-on itself

 

Hi,
You read it correctly, and this does not contradict my earlier "big picture"
statement that I'll be handing over update check feature to Add-on Updater.
Cheers,
Joseph

Joseph this seems to contradict the post you made in the add ons group. Can
you clarify. I think you mean that if you do not want to use add onupdater
updates will still work for this and station playlists, but if add on
updater is loaded it will be used instead. At least that is how I read the

Hi all,



The following is considered a critical advisory in that it affects
everyone using Windows 10 App Essentials add-on:



Starting from Windows 10 App Essentials 18.09, the add-on will no longer
offer update channel selection functionality. This is a necessary change
in
order to hand over add-on update checking functionality to Add-on Updater,
and in extension, NVDA Core in the future. In reality, you can change
update
channels, but this will involve modifying add-on manifest.



To switch channels from September 2018 onwards (or, for those on
development/pilot channels, August 27th snapshot and later), you need to
visit Community Add-ons website (addons.nvda-project.org), select Windows
10
App Essentials, and download the release you'd like to use/test. The full
switchover to Add-on Updater will occur with Windows 10 App Essentials
18.10.

Re: Open Office vs Libre

 

openoffice is better in some cases like the time when you use replace
all for a word
or when displaying notification and i believe is better in calc.
but libreoffice has its own advantages too.
for example: when you open menus, nvda reads the shortcuts for most
items, you can use control go for going to a specific page,
and has more features and supporting for exporting to more many
formats in compare to openoffice.
for example: libreoffice can export as docx, but openoffice cant and
only has capability of reading docx format.

Re: regular expression and speech dic

 

William,

           If my presumptions in the last message are correct, give the following a try for the regular expression:

                                  ([\u4e00-\u9fa5]+)(max|min)*(lv)([\u4e00-\u9fa5]*)

           and the following for the substitution:
                                  
                                  \1 \2 level \4


Note 1:   The above is only for the style you showed that includes Chinese characters with an optional "max" or "min" and "lv".    It will not capture a simple lv followed by numbers.  You should keep the earlier regular expression and substitution for those instances.

Note 2:  The above regular expression presumes Python regex syntax.  Since I know that NVDA add-ons are coded in Python I'm presuming this is the regex syntax NVDA would use.  If not, then I would need to know which version of regex syntax is being used.

Re: regular expression and speech dic

 

William,

I'm not asking for a phonetic transcription, but a "how would you like those broken apart" description for how the three examples you provided, which follow, should be read (with my guesses afterward):

你的lv?                 你的 level  (and is that question mark the end of a sentence)
我的lv是12           我的 level  是 12
我maxlv了            我 max level 了

This gets very tricky if the first example is the end of a sentence while the others are not.  Also, do you happen to know if the unicode for the entire Chinese character set is sequential, like the unicode for, say, a-z or 0-9 is?

In that last example, would it only be "max" and "min" in the three character positions before lv when used?

The lack of the use of whitespace in these forms makes them trickier to accurately snag and parse apart for substitution for the voice synthesizer.  They look like something that would be unpronouncable without being broken into several units.

The Windows 10 mail app also works well with NVDA, but set-up only works with Narrator, and it doesn't have all the features that Thunderbird does. I hope this is helpful.

I can confirm that part of the Place marker add-on does not work in Edge. The command to set a mark, ctrl+Shift+NVDA+k does not work. When reading ePub books I use the add-on's specific find feature to find my place. It is a bit more cumbersome, but it works well. Of course the first prize would be if the app can be made to work in Edge as well as it works elsewhere.

Re: downloding MP3 FILES

You are assuming that you can get viruses or ads if you download from Youtube using a download program.  I really doubt it.  First, the actual file is downloaded.  Then the program converts it into the MP3 format and saves it with the name of the file.  No ads are downloaded.  I don't know if it's possible for the original file to be infected but if it is, the infection isn't going to be carried over in the conversion process.  The file is converted.  NonMP3 information won't be converted.  It isn't something the converter would recognize as convertible. 
 
If you don't like the name, you can change it as you change the name of any file.  If you don't download much, saving a file while it plays may be fine.  If you download more than a small amount, it isn't.

Re: downloding MP3 FILES

I don't know if there is a setting for controling whether such files play in Chrome but whenever a file starts to play in Chrome, in Firefox, and I don't know about Internet Explorer, you can save it in the following way,:
It doesn't matter if the file is playing or if you have found a pause buttonin the embedded player interface, you can use the command control s for save.  A typical save as dialog will come up.  Use it to save the file.

If you're downloading an mp3 file from the web, Firefox and Internet Explorer work better because they give you the option to either open or save the file. Today, I tried downloading an mp3 file with Google Chrome, but instead of giving me a choice, it opened the file and started playing it, and I couldn't find an option to download it. Fortunately, the link to the file was in Thunderbird, so I was able to open the context menu and download the file using the "save as" option. I hope this helps.
