HI

It looks like the Canute will be sold sometime around September of this year 2018. So my question is this… Will there be an NVDA addon to let me well lets say I am in an excel or google sheets spreadsheet… Could I press a key combination, and the addon would format and send the spreadsheet for viewing on the Canute? Or if I’m on the desktop, just dump the current screen to the Canute? Or if on a website, and if using a reader addon in chrome or firefox or edge, send the website for viewing on the Canute? Or if I am in a view of a graph or chart in a spreadsheet like excel, send all info about, and regarding the chart, to the Canute for viewing? The canute would be more of a display for reading, not for editing.

The website for the Canute is:

Re: NVDA and Canute multiline display

This is indeed a fascinating device (9 lines of 40 cells, for a few hundred
pounds sterling, instead of many thousands for a one-line display), however if
you read the end of http://www.bristolbraille.co.uk/canute-faq.htm it says:

"Can I Use Canute as a Braille Display for my Computer/Smartphone/Tablet?

"Not yet. Screen reading software typically used to drive refreshable Braille
displays are designed to show one Braille line at a time. Plus, the Canute’s
refresh rate make it unsuitable for editing text. We are actively working with
OS developers to integrate Canute support and expect screen reader plug-ins
will become available to send a document or screen of text to the Canute."

So, don't expect it to be usable with NVDA any time soon.

I could be wrong and I hope I am, but I thought I read that this device for now is more of a stand-alone option. Something to do with screen readers and multi-line this or that that present technical challenges in its current state.

Re: Brltty: what is it for?

Angela Delicata
 

Thank you so much for the reply: it is clearer now.

Il 13/04/2018 15:13, Antony Stone ha scritto:
Brltty is a generic Braille display driver which is available on many different
operating systems (Windows, OSX, Linux, BSD at least) and supports a very
large number of Braille displays.

It can be used with applications such as NVDA to provide support for displays
for which NVDA itself has no specific driver.

The results are not always as complete as you might get with a specific driver
between the application and the display (for example, some features of the
display may not be supported), but it's a good way to get basic functionality
for a device which otherwise can't be used at all.

Hi
 
 
Probably the easiest way so you get a idea is to use narrator first.
 
What operating system are you using?
 
 
I think in the earlier versions of windows it was the windows key + the enter key to start narrator
 
 
In later versions of Windows in 10 i think it was not sure which version 
it was the CTRL key + windows key + the enter key.
 
 
This would start up your copy of narrator. You would then navigate to 
where your drives were.
 
 
i would use the Windows key + E to bring up file explorer then go down 
to the USB stick then go into the folder of nvda then find the nvda.exe 
file then press the enter key. NVDA then would start up then i would use 
the alt/tab key to bring up narrator then close it with the alt + f4 key.
 
 
After that you would then use NVDA.
 
 
If there is a log on screen I have found no way around that. to start nvda.
 
 
The other way I have on my usb sticks is labeling the usb stick which 
would be labeled qqq then a folder made called nvda and the files went 
into that. I like that way 2.
 
 
The nvda audio tutorials page can be found at 
http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20audio%20tutorials.html
 
There are different ways of starting nvda from a usb stick there I think 
from Xp up to windows 10 which depending how you have it set is if you 
jump any extra hoops which might be the same for other operating systems.
 
 
You will see what i mean for say windows 10 on how you have it set to 
what hoops you might have to jump.

Re: [SUSPECT URL!]Re: [nvda] creating A portable copy

Ervin, Glenn
 

I think it might matter how you specify its path.
I have noticed with unzipping files, for example, that if I tell it to unzip to e:
The files will be splattered all over the root of e:.
But if I tell it to unzip to e:\ then it creates a folder for files to go into.
Now this of course depends on how files were zipped in the first place, so if this is being unzipped from a zipped folder, then it would not put all those files all over in the root that was specified.
But I think that NVDA will do the same thing.
If you specify F:\ for example, rather than just F:, you may get an NVDA folder automatically.

Hi.

Yes I am an Elbraille user. There is an extended braille gestures add-on I believe on the official NVDA add-ons page that brings most of the missing functionality.


I'm confused about your JAWS issue with no spanish braille, because JAWS18 uses libluis, which I am surprised to hear doesn't have anything but computer braille in Spanish.


To be able to cycle between JAWS and NVDA, assign one of the elbraille buttons to launch NVDA. Otherwise, you won't be able to start NVDA with JAWS already running, as two screen readers are unable to do anything that makes sense with one braille display. You'll need close JAWS first then start NVDA using that elbraille button. If you need to go back to JAWS, close NVDA and use the Elbraille Rescue Menu (hold down e1, and use your volume keys to find JAWS Restart, then hit E4 to execute.


Have fun learning the new gestures for that NVDA add-on though, I tried and gave up, mostly because I prefer JAWS at this point anyway but, it's all very different and quite a headache for those already used to doing it the JAWS way.


I can't keep up with this list much. If you want to ensure a response from me about further discussion of the Elbraille, be sure to include my email address directly. If it's on topic, and you also sent it to the list, I'll come into the folder for this and find it and respond on list.


Hope this is useful.

Hello,

I recently purchased an El Braille from Freedom Scientific, and over
all, I think it is an amazing product. Hardware specs aren't much to
speak on, but for what it does, not a bad product at all. However, there
is one major issue I have run in to. That is, the lack of Spanish
Braille entry support in JAWS. Called up VFO, only to be told that if I
wanted to use JAWS in another language, I would have to buy another
license from a distributor in Latin America. I informed them that no, I
was able to get Spanish JAWS to activate here in the U.S, (by keeping
format options set to English-US, and in almost every way, it works.
However, even in the Spanish version of JAWS, the only Braille entry
offered is computer Braille. While I am used to, and much prefer having
my OS in Spanish, and can read Spanish Braille, I have no idea how to
type certain things in eight dot, aka computer, Braille. And it seems
that VFO just didn't want to deal with it. Even contacted a distributor
in Argentina, only to be told that since I didn't buy the license from
them, that they could not offer support.

So, that got me thinking. I have used NVDA for years. the commands are
already more familiar to me. Granted, I had never used it with a Braille
display before, bbut I thought... this thing runs Windows. What can stop
me from putting NVDA on it and doing things that way? I detached the
focus 14 and took NVDA with the focus 14 for a quick test drive. Spanish
input and output work perfectly so far as I could tell..

So, here are a few things I have noticed.

1. There doesn't seem to be any support for simulating a press of a
function key from the Braille display.

2. It does not seem possible to do keystrokes which require several
modifiers at once, (alt + tab, alt + f4, ctrl + C, etc. Am I missing
something, or is my assesment correct? Does anyone else on this list
have an El Braille? I wonder if an NVDA addon could be produced to make
it play nicer with this particular device.

There are several reasons one might wish to do this. I already explained
my reasoning, but being that there are only 2 gb of ram on the device,
NVDA is a much lighter program, not so much of a resource hog. Also, a
lot of the NVDA commands seem to be much more intuitive. A W-chord (for
Windows makes lots more sense than right shift + dot 4. E-chord for
escape, makes a lot more sense than the Z-chord used by Jaws.

Thanks,

Justin

It is a Dell yes.
Interesting suggestion there, I’ll give it a go. How do I delete the driver? And also, why do you think this issue specific to NVDA?
I’m not that confident with Dell laptops at the moment, but they seem to be popping up in my life a lot more often.

Hi.


Is this a dell? If so, I'll need to gloat for a bit. I have a serious hate on for the wave max audio stuff. If it is, a possible fix is to delete the audio driver and reboot. For a short while after you reboot, you'll have a stock windows driver that works fine with the only exception being that it doesn't support headsets with the microphone on the same 8th inch plug in a combo jack, it still records from internal even if you use a headset with a microphone on it. Note though a couple of things, if you end up with no sound, you need a way to recover. I suggest making sure NVDA remote is set to auto start and auto connect in the allow another pc to control this one mode, and if you have another computer handy, restart without doing anything else to ensure you're able to get in from the other computer. Alternatively if you have a USB sound device you could plug in, that'll work.


If this solution works, until the driver updates itself again, you can use the WinaeroTweaker application (free download) to block all driver updates. Dell is really good about making sure your drivers stay up to date so drastic measures are needed to stop it. I don't even know if this will work, when I had a dell for a few days I didn't know about this, so I tried another alternative that worked, denying system write privilages to the realtek folder in program files (and program files (x86) both, but for the system account only If you do it that way, be darn sure you don't accidentally do it to your own account or I won't be able to figure out how to get you to be able to see the folder again to fix it. Deny write and modify to it, for the system account and only that.


Alternatively, if this is recent, let's blame NVDA? Lol

Not every audio device has audio enhancements. So this isn't a surefire fix.

Re: Urgently need help about Word 2010

prem.translator@...
 

For now:
- I have two files with the same file format (.docx).
- For the two files, the one contains only a table with about 28 rolls and 4 columns in each roll, and everything is in the table, but the other one, there is no table.
- Both have the same style of editor revision (insertion, deletion and comment).
- The problem is: when I open both files and list the elements using insert + F7 and choose "annotations", NVDA can list annotations for the file that doesn't have table, but not for the other one.

Please help me, and thank you for all comments.

Go to NVDA preferences and then on Win10 OCR, there you can choose the OCR language, it lists you all languages you got installed in your Windows 10.

Hello:
I'm using win10 with nvda 18.1. So without any choice I'm supposed to use win10 ocr functionality. As far as I know it has only English as recognition language. If there is another language how can i choose them? And if my target language is not among the options it may give, how can I add one. That's all for now. :)


Re: Brltty: what is it for?

Antony Stone
 

Brltty is a generic Braille display driver which is available on many different
operating systems (Windows, OSX, Linux, BSD at least) and supports a very
large number of Braille displays.

It can be used with applications such as NVDA to provide support for displays
for which NVDA itself has no specific driver.

The results are not always as complete as you might get with a specific driver
between the application and the display (for example, some features of the
display may not be supported), but it's a good way to get basic functionality
for a device which otherwise can't be used at all.


Regards,


Antony.

Hi:
Even though my target language is added in the time and language in
the settings, the win10 ocr in preferences still has one language
only. Could you please tell me how to install a language pack and it
may appear among the choices?

Re: NVDA and Windows Audio Service (audiodg.exe)

valiant8086
 

Hi.


Is this a dell? If so, I'll need to gloat for a bit. I have a serious hate on for the wave max audio stuff.  If it is, a possible fix is to delete the audio driver and reboot. For a short while after you reboot, you'll have a stock windows driver that works fine with the only exception being that it doesn't support headsets with the microphone on the same 8th inch plug in a combo jack, it still records from internal even if you use a headset with a microphone on it. Note though  a couple of things, if you end up with no sound, you need a way to recover. I suggest making sure NVDA remote is set to auto start and auto connect in the allow another pc to control this one mode, and if you have another computer handy, restart without doing anything else to ensure you're able to get in from the other computer. Alternatively if you have a USB sound device you could plug in, that'll work.


If this solution works, until the driver updates itself again, you can use the WinaeroTweaker application (free download) to block all driver updates. Dell is really good about  making sure your drivers stay up to date so drastic measures are needed to stop it. I don't even know if this will work, when I had a dell for a few days I didn't know about this, so I tried another alternative that worked, denying system write privilages to the realtek folder in program files (and program files (x86) both, but for the system account only If you do it that way, be darn sure you don't accidentally do it to your own account or I won't be able to figure out how to get you to be able to see the folder again to fix it. Deny write and modify to it, for the system account and only that.


Alternatively, if this is recent, let's blame NVDA? Lol
