Re: better notepad works great with NVDA!

 

hi again.
thanks for your guide, in the compatibility mode, i selected windows
98 and recieved the same error again.
is there any solution?
by the way, does this program support export as html?
i tried SciTe as mentioned in other post and it was the only program
which had this capability!

I'm actually very surprised some hackers have not actually got into XP and

added some new routines that emulate the new operating systems ones to make

it still work. I guess there is not really a call for it most of the time.
I just think that by now even in hard to get at countries, there should be

windows 7 machines being pensioned off that can be reformatted and used
perfectly acceptably.

hi.
thanks so much for advicing about compatibility mode, i appreciate you.
but unfortunately it did not work!
because i only had windows 95, 98 nt4 and 2000 in the list.

i installed it easily, but when i launched it, i recieved this error.

C:\Program Files\Notepad3\Notepad3.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
does it mean that this program does not support windows xp?

Hi,
I found something better than notepad2. It is called notepad3! You
can get it here. Its free.

https://www.rizonesoft.com/downloads/notepad3/

works good with NVDA. And during install you can tell it to replace
the standard windows 7 8 or 10 notepad. You do not have to be a
programmer to use it. But you can use it for programming if you wish.
It has blank line removal and all kinds of neat things on its menu
bar.

actually,  none of the three format announcing property sheets
seems to
have a way of selectable just stopping the announcement of the object
type
if its a graphics. Sure you can turn off object type announcements
but
this
one supposes then leaves you a little in the dark about everything
else. I
think, personally, I've come to live with this, making sure that when
I hear
the word start to be spoken I go away or hit control to shut it up.
It is giving valuable info of course and its a sad fact of our
lives that
telling us what is on the screen to help us understand layout is one
of the
problems. While its telling us about buttons and their state ie
pressed or
not it also tells us if the bit we are on is a graphic and even a
graphic
button indeed.

however, when nvda sees a title or the name of one person, first

i dont want to hear graphic at all!
what should i do in nvda to achieve this?

I will still use skype classic for family, but due to things as they

will be email for internationals only, skype if they need, but I will
no longer advertise.

Microsoft has lost another user, skype classic interface is easy to
understand, the new one I just don't care for.

Its a pitty its got to end this way but I may as well cut my losses
right now rather than having to bother with things going bang.

I will have to either search for another solution or start paying high

inaccessible.

Way to go ms.

Can't skype classic just be pulled from the update loop and still be
kept active?

Hi Quentin and all. Are you aware that NVDA is being treated as a virus by Symantec endpoint protection? It just deletes the file and does not let me do anything with it. It's probably not the best place to bring this up, but I thought I would let you know.

Thanks.

Using web widget progress bar

Jonathan COHN
 

I have been playing with this using both Chrome and Firefox and it seems that at least Firefox sends alerts to NVDA that are then refused by

NVDAObject.Accessible.behaviour NVDA sees a pprogressbar accessible update but then seems to be looking for integer values for min, max, and value.

 

My reading of the ARIA specs indicate that the browsers should accet:

Aria-valuemin

Aria-valuemax

Aria-valuenow

Aria-valuetext

 

The behavior routine is sending a warning that the value in aria-valuetext is not a number.

 

I expect that the progressbar routine is what gives the tones whenNVDA is installing. So if I want to make NVDA speak not only the percentage but the aria-valuetext would I have to override the function I found and if so how would I know what thclass to inherit to get this to behave the way I would expect.

Then you are commenting on a legal version.  But I don't know what is causing slow synthesizer responsiveness.  This may be a matter for discussion by those with more technical knowledge than I have.

Hello everyone,

This is my first post in this group. I have a annoying problem with my NVDA which I have been trying to figure out. I have noticed that when i use Eloquence voice that the TTS sometimes lags or hangs for a second everytime i press the next key. Most noticeable is when i use Microsoft Excel. If I use the arrows to moved left/right or up or down, sometimes i have to way 1 to 3 seconds for the TTS to catch up and let me know what is in that cell. sometimes the TTS just hangs for a good minute.

Now, when I use JAWS I don’t have this problem. So I think it is NVDA related. My system resources says my computer is running at 10% most of the time on average, and I am only using half of my 8gb of RAM. So, it is not a system resource hog.

I have tried to uninstall NVDA and reinstall it, and that did not work, so I am open for any ideas or suggestions. thanks guys!

need to tab about 4 times and you will hear the following add button,
edit button, remove button then the ok button. Press the enter key on
this and you should be done.


You will then not hear the word graphic spoken as in a image but if you
say type the word graphic in a email it is not spoken when it is read out.

Have a play and you will see what i mean.

Try using the speech dictionary to stop graphic from being spoken.  I

Re: notepad plus plus and NVDA

 

Yes I think it is.

I forget exactly how but you should be able to resave in certain formats with standard notepad..

Back when I was doing opperating systems class I had but never kept, command line converters that would translate text files from dos, to unix to windows iso formats.

They were called dos to unix and unix to dos respectedly.

There is probably something else you can do now to resave the files in the right format.

Hi,
Is notepad plus plus accessible with NVDA? I have some text files I want to do some advanced editing on. In some, I want to remove all blank lines. Others are from an old dos program and have extra ascii ansi junk characters that I want to get rid of. Once fixed up, I want to re-save the text files, open in wordPad and save as docx files to re-translate into braille to put on the orbit reader 20. I put two files on there, and have to hit the scroll forward button a lot to skip extra blank lines which interrupts my ability to read the file smoothly.

you could try the following but it might have side effects.

Use the nvda key + letter N the NVDA menu will come up then arrow down
to preferences menu then arrow right to settings then down to speech
dictionaries then arrow right to default then press the enter key.

When the next dialogue screen comes up NVDA will land in the  NVDA will
say alt + D.  default dictionary Next tab to the add button then press
the enter key.  The next screen that comes up will say Patton this is
where you type the word graphicgraphic.Next tab and you will hear nvda
say replacement leave this blank as in no text in it. tab again and you
will hear comment you can leave this blank, tab again and you will hear
NVDA say case sensitive. You can either check it or noti just left it
blank.type grouping. I just left it on any where but it gives you some
options there like a combo box. Tab again to the ok button then press
the enter key.

You will then be taken back to the default dictionary list.You will then
need to tab about 4 times and you will hear the following add button,
edit button, remove button then the ok button. Press the enter key on
this and you should be done.

Re: NVDA Command to Label Graphics

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


the only thing or add on i can think of that might come close is the golden cursor but is more for hot spots.


for a example i had a scanner program which had 6 or so unlabled buttons etc on it. You could not tab to them either but if the mouse was say moved to them you could label them. So then if you wanted to get to those buttons in the program you would then use the elements list it would come up with the ones you labled pick the one you want and it would go to it. I think it was screen pacific so what your monitor was set to was what it had to say at to find those buttons each time.


You can also drive the mouse with your arrow keys etc but i do not think this is really what you want.


Sus it out you never know.

I have been asking for an easy object customizer addon for years that would both let us easily reclass objects to other types, rename them, including labeling graphic objects manually or with tooltips, and sharing those customizations with others application specific or globally saved profiles. So far no addon has been made that will easily let us do this. Currently to do any of this you have to be into python programming, which I am not good at.

Be careful as if you have a graphic description with the  word graphic you might be in trouble reading said graphic description. I wonder if you could make the dictionary website specific or what not as well.

What is the currently suggested nvda friendly program for this task? Ie are

there some that work with voices that one can add dictionary corrections to,

as many Microsoft synths like speech platform seem to have massive issues

with the letter no and even sappi 5 does odd stuff.

I've been using  dspeech myself, for ages, but it is restricted to sappi 5

32 bit voices and one has to alter the words in the file itself to correct

the  pronunciation. I guess some kind of add on to do a say all to file

might be nice but to me this is a stand alone program function.

What do you use?

NVDA lags in speech feedback.

Daniel Hawkins
 

Hello everyone,

This is my first post in this group. I have a annoying problem with my NVDA which I have been trying to figure out. I have noticed that when i use Eloquence voice that the TTS sometimes lags or hangs for a second everytime i press the next key. Most noticeable is when i use Microsoft Excel. If I use the arrows to moved left/right or up or down, sometimes i have to way 1 to 3 seconds for the TTS to catch up and let me know what is in that cell. sometimes the TTS just hangs for a good minute.

Now, when I use JAWS I don’t have this problem. So I think it is NVDA related. My system resources says my computer is running at 10% most of the time on average, and I am only using half of my 8gb of RAM. So, it is not a system resource hog.

I have tried to uninstall NVDA and reinstall it, and that did not work, so I am open for any ideas or suggestions. thanks guys!
Daniel Hawkins
