I know not much about it but picked this up on another account and as there have been discussions about such things here, I thought I'd mention it.

If you put webbie into a search you should find the site.

I'll ask the next question which build of windows 10 is it he is using? I'm sure Joseph will ask otherwise!

Subject: [nvda] Windows10 Mail and NVDA: several bugs reported


Hello all.


A Spanish user asked us about the following two bugs he has with
Windows10's mail app.

-When opening a mail to read it, NVDA reports "page 1".

-When writing a message with word echo enabled and pressing space after
typing a word with accented letters or "ñ" on it NVDA doesn't report it.


Can someone try to reproduce these bugs to open an issue if needed? The
two ones happened after updating to 2018.1 and using either Eloquence or
eSpeakNG and with WinTenApps and without it.


Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Registry fixing tool in nvda

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

I know a number of people here have had serious issues with browsers not reading word not working right with nvda and other associated problems.
For some time now this has been known to be due to registry issues due to uninstallers of other software not correctly registering important files. The latest next snapshot has a tool to fix this, rather predictably in its tool menu, so if you are having such issues, it may well be a good idea to try this version of nvda and use the tool.
it should do no harm, but do remember that next snaps are bleeding edge code and will need to be used with caution. Always back up your previous version and set a restore point before doing any work on registry files. Note the account that its used on has to have admin access or it won't work.

Here is what the entry says.

Re: Error while updating to NVDA 2018.1 via the NVDA update utility.

Gene
 

I don't know if turning up the volume of system sounds would make it louder, nor do I know if the sound can be changed.  But there is a sound.  also, when using the portable version of NVDA, when UAC comes on, you hear the phrase, secure desktop.  I don't know what, if anything, you hear with the installed version.  But it isn't as though, when using the default setting, UAC comes on often.  I don't see a good reason to disable a Windows security feature to eliminate a minimum amount of inconvenience.

Yes because for some reason only known to Microsoft this screen does not

have any text that can be spoken by a screenreader. It would be nice if it

made a sound so you knew it was there. If you are the only user, then having

uac on seems completely pointless.

In what version of Windows do you not hear UAC text spoken when the screen comes up?  In Windows 7 the text is spoken, from what I've read, unless you are using the portable version.  If this isn't the case, we should know it and the problem should be corrected.

Re: Error while updating to NVDA 2018.1 via the NVDA update utility.

Gene
 

It's a minimum amount of inconvenience to respond when the UAC prompt appears.  All you have to do is use the alt y command.  Why are people so casual about disabling a security feature that is minimally inconvenient?  You issue one command.  Compare that very minor inconvenience to what you may have to doo if you are infected because UAC is off.  I realize that malware can circumvent UAC, and, from what I've been told, it isn't difficult.  But still, what if you could have prevented nfection by having it on at a minimum of inconvenience?

A sound can be associated in sounds in control panel

 

Whether it has a sound by default or not i cannot tell you but there is the option to do so if one can be bothered that is

Yes because for some reason only known to Microsoft this screen does not

have any text that can be spoken by a screenreader. It would be nice if it

made a sound so you knew it was there. If you are the only user, then having

uac on seems completely pointless.

Windows10 Mail and NVDA: several bugs reported

Iván Novegil
 

Hello all.


A Spanish user asked us about the following two bugs he has with Windows10's mail app.

-When opening a mail to read it, NVDA reports "page 1".

-When writing a message with word echo enabled and pressing space after typing a word with accented letters or "ñ" on it NVDA doesn't report it.


Can someone try to reproduce these bugs to open an issue if needed? The two ones happened after updating to 2018.1 and using either Eloquence or eSpeakNG and with WinTenApps and without it.


Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Hi


Do the following


Press the windows key and in the search box type uac it should come with a result like change user account

settings.

Press the enter key on that result.


Tab down until you get to the slider and then use the down arrow key to make it go to nought


Then either tab down to if i remember either apply if it is there if so apply it then tab to ok then press the enter key on it.


After you press the enter key the UAC screen will come up just tab to yes then press the enter key on it and it should be done.


Hopefully after that it will not come up again until the next big windows update.

Re: Question about transferring espeak data between NVDA & Braillenote touch version

Is this a sapi 5 version? I'd have thought the settings could be moved between them if you could figure out the storage places for both versions parameters.

I’m really enjoying it, and its totally boosted my productivity.
I’m now using eSpeak with NVDA, and was wondering if it was possible to transfer my settings and other data between the 2 versions?

Ok, that's really odd. All of them were slow on the typing echo, including
2017.4, which is what I was running previously without issue. I'm confused
to how that could be possible. :/

I've used the one-core voices and they're really great.

I agree, eSpeak needs lots of work, still. But the worst part of Open Source is that we all talk about it, but nothing gets done, we all wish, but never act, and there is only one person working on eSpeak. I know, we can't all program. But, with Windows 10, there are the OneCore voices, created by Microsoft which we can use, so we are no longer limited to eSpeak.

Let me remind you of the word for, which, if followed by another word, seems to sound like fur.


For example: for the time being.


It is very interesting to here it pronounced quite correctly when it is
a stand alone word, as is the case in the first line of my message.

Not sure about that, I'm on their email list and there are several people on there doing pull requests and updates.

I think at the moment they are trying to tidy up the code so all of the changes can be seen easeir and possible make it easier to tweak later on.
its not bad, but I think wheras previously uk english was the main language, now people are attempting to make the us English work and some of the changes sound odd in uk english. The slurring that is normal for us is not pleasent in the uk

Certainly has deteriorated in its pronunciation

Dear all,


I think eSpeak has to be adjusted from scratch. It is very hard to get to a point where every word is being pronounced correctly. This is a matter of accent and phonemes which are very limited in eSpeak development.

If we begin to assess every word in eSpeak, we will find thousants and thousants of words which are mispronounced. Don't forget eSpeak supports more than 50 languages. So, developing this synthesizer word by word is not a long term solution.

So, in my view, if another speech synthesizer becomes free (i.e. eloquence or vocalizer), every user will change to it unless eSpeak is being vastly improved from scratch.


Best
Adriani
