Re: goldwave addon

 

Hi,

I think I asked this a few days ago, but have you tried this after restarting NVDA while focused on GoldWave window itself?

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph, just to double check (since to be honest, I don't use Dictation myself) - does Windows 10 App Essentials now basically replace Dictation Bridge if using Windows dictation?  Or are there still other features Dictation Bridge provides which Win 10 App Essentials doesn't, but they might not be needed by everyone?

Has anyone noticed that when using NVDA and Dictation Bridge beta, and using Notepad, Text is not repeated when dictated. It does work properly in Word or Outlook but just not Notepad.

Re: Irresponsive NVDA while writing the mail

Quentin Christensen
 

Finally, on top of all the things everyone else has said / asked, if you are using NVDA 2020.3 with Mail in Windows 10 - try NVDA 2020.4.  We fixed a couple of issues especially around reading Mail which sound similar to what you have described.

Re: pdf editing with adobe and nvda

 

By the way, are we talking about editing PDF files or filling in PDF forms?

What's been mentioned so far would work for actually editing PDF files.  But if you're just trying to fill in PDFs like are supplied by the IRS and many other organizations those can be completed in Acrobat Reader DC or any of a number of other PDF readers that support form filling function.

Adobe Acrobat for designing and editing PDFs is an expensive tool.

Re: pdf editing with adobe and nvda

 

MS-Edge is great for reading PDFs, but the original question (and title) is about editing them. It's useless for that particular task.  

As has been noted, there are other options besides Adobe Acrobat for PDF editing, and for those who already know Word it's worth trying.  The only issue is whether or not every tiny bit of the formatting will be preserved, as Word will make slight changes for PDFs created using older formats for that file type.  But I have yet to see it do anything that makes it look a complete and utter mess.  And there's no problem if you've actually created the file in MS-Word and elected to save it as a PDF.  But I presume the original question is about making changes to an existing PDF file that came into one's possession.

the best pdf reader is built in to microsoft edge or samatra pdf for editing or reading pdfs.


Re: pdf editing with adobe and nvda

 

PDFs can be edited in MS-Word since version 2013, I believe.  I know I can open them in 2016.

I'd have to play around with it, as that's not something I've done
before. On the rare occasion I need to create a PDF, I am usually
working in Word, which can then save as a PDF. I've had very little to
do lately, so I'll try and play around with this and get back to you.

Re: question about reading notifications

 

See:  Keyboard Shortcuts in Windows, specifically the section regarding Windows Logo Key (AKA the Windows Key) keyboard shortcuts.  (Or, if you prefer, List of all Windows 10 keyboard shortcuts: The ultimate guide).

Even before that, you will likely want your Notifications to remain visible longer than the default.  Go to Settings, Ease of Access, Display Pane and locate the dropdown for Show Notifications for and drop it down and pick a duration of your choosing.  I believe the default is 7 seconds, but I could be wrong about that.

When a notification appears WinKey+Shift+V throws focus to that notification while it's being displayed.  If it has disappeared, odds are it is in the queue in the Action Center, accessed using WinKey+A.  I believe WinKey+Shift+V will also cycle through all notifications, including those in the Action Center, moving to the next with each repeated press so long as you don't do anything else between each press except view the notification.

Right click on a blank area of your desktop (Or go to the desktop (Windows+d), press control+space to unselect the default icon, and press your applications key.)

Choose the "new" submenu, and "shortcut" from there.
Where it says: "type the location of the item", type the following:

taskkill.exe /f /im firefox.exe /t

Select "next".
Then, type a name for the shortcut. I use "Firefox killer", then select Finish.
Next, find the "Firefox killer" (or whatever you called it) icon on your desktop, and press your Applications key.
Choose "properties".
Tab to "shortcut key", and press control+alt+k, or whatever you want the shortcut to be.
Then tab to "OK" and press it.
And you should be done.

Note that these instructions work in Windows 10, 7, and probably Vista. I do not know if they do in XP.
