Re: File explorer (maybe)

Quentin Christensen
 

If you press the windows key and then start typing "Task scheduler" it should come up.  If you want to find out where it is, you can always press the applications / context menu key on the item instead of enter, and choose "Open file location" which will open it in File Explorer and you can check the address bar to see where it is.

Regards

Quentin.

Okay, I am trying to use task scheduler but I need to find the file path to start the program. I did a search for grover.exe (assuming this is what I need for a windows app) but it only came up with a file called grover.exe.temp.DMP.

 

Can someone help me? Do the new window apps (an app downloaded from the windows store) follow a typical structure such as using a *.exe file or should I be looking for something else?

Re: How do I run a portable copy of NVDA from a USB flash drive

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


Below is the restrictions of a portable version. Most people install a
copy of nvda to the computer and just use a portable when out and about
or using some one else machine.


3.1. Portable and Temporary Copy Restrictions
Apart from the inability to automatically start during and/or after
log-on, the portable and temporary copies of NVDA also have the
following restrictions:
• The inability to interact with applications running with
administrative privileges, unless of course NVDA itself has been run
also with these privileges (not recommended).
• The inability to read User Account Control (UAC) screens when trying
to start an application with administrative privileges.
• Windows 8 and later: the inability to support input from a touchscreen.
• Windows 8 and later: the inability to provide features such as browse
mode and speaking of typed characters in Windows Store apps.
• Windows 8 and later: audio ducking is not supported.

A recurring error with the latest master snapshot

Marcia Yale
 

I will paste my log below, but the issue here is that every time NVDA is
started it gives an error and an "ok" dialog comes up with a corresponding
sound. Not sure what the error means. It's strange that it shows me using
Windows 6.1--I'm using 7. Didn't know there was even such a thing as Windows
6!

Hello,

I know very little about the Arabic or Farsi languages. I assume the
punctuation you are looking at is not Latin based? Even so, I believe
the
UNICODE standard (which is not always used by Windows systems), defines
which codes should be punctuation for the alphabet being encoded. Also,
sometimes the same symbol can have different ways to be represented in
Unicode since even though the graphic looks the same there are different
meanings for the symbol. A good example of this is that the dash and the
minus sign in Latin alphabets usually look identical, but there is a
different UNICODE representation. Another place this happens is accented
characters, where often these can be represented as two characters in
one
location or as one character.

In any case, it would be good to try and provide the details of the
issues
to NVDA developers so that all folks using the symbols you are having
issues
with can have the problems resolved. Also, in at least Latin based
languages, some punctuation has significantly different interpretation
when
in the middle of a word or number and NVDA can support these
differentiations.

Best Wishes,

Jonathan

Re: How do I run a portable copy of NVDA from a USB flash drive

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

hi Gene


I knew they had disabled the functionality back in windows 7 but did not realize how long ago it was.


In the machines i use now the run or install option under the auto play menu is disabled as well. for nvda to be used on a CD it had to be enabled but have not even gone down that route for so long as a usb stick is much smaller and you can get nvda up and running on a new machine quickly if you know what to do.

Here is an article from Microsoft discussing changes made to Windows 7 at some point after its release.  Autorun was disabled, autoplay wasn't. 
These changes, though this isn't discussed in the article, remain in all later Windows versions.  This wasn't stated in the article because the article was written before any later versions were released.

Re: How do I run a portable copy of NVDA from a USB flash drive

Gene
 

Here is an article from Microsoft discussing changes made to Windows 7 at some point after its release.  Autorun was disabled, autoplay wasn't. 
These changes, though this isn't discussed in the article, remain in all later Windows versions.  This wasn't stated in the article because the article was written before any later versions were released.

Hi


If i remember right they disabled the autoplay menu so it did not work
any more.


I know what you are talking about it was the first option in the
autoplay menu and you just pushed the enter key to start your copy of nvda.


I am not sure if it can still be done I would have to enable the auto
play menu to see.

I think they made it so it can not be done any more but could be wrong.


can not even remember if I still have a copy of the autorun file to try
it with.

Re: Best Synthesizer

Chris Mullins
 

It depends what you are using it for as to what is "best". You can get more human sounding voices which are good for reading text and you can have electronic sounding voices which are much more responsive when being used when programming for example. As someone else posted, it's the one that suits you.

SAPI is not a speech engine. It's a definition of a protocol enabling speech

Some synthesisers can only communicate with other applications via SAPI, some
can do SAPI plus other protocols, some don't do SAPI at all.

As Gene said, whether a synthesiser communicates using SAPI says nothing at
all about the quality of its voices.

Also, to add another answer to the original question "what is the best
sounding synthesizer that NVDA supports?", I would say it's the one you like
best and get on with best. That may not be the same as what someone else
likes. These things are a very personal choice.

Hi


If you are not sure where to get the official add ons from when nvda is running press the nvda key + letter N a menu will pop up then arrow down to tools then a sub menu will appear then arrow down to manage add ons then press the enter key. A new screen will appear where there are buttons tab to the get add ons button then press the enter key and your browser will open.


There will be a list of add ons you can use.



Do you know how to install them? if you are interested i have put together a web site that may help you it all so includes installing add ons and alot more in written and audio. it is only for the desk top version of nvda.

it also has a tutorial for winamp and skype etc. it can be found at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net
There are links on the main page  that are blindness related as well as nvda related. You will find also if you go into one of the nvda pages it is a website inside of a website  so you can bookmark one of the nvda pages and it will have links to all nvda pages you will see what i mean.

hope it helps.

Re: how to use bluetooth

I said nothing about your intent nor did I assume what it is.  I'm saying that if you say something like this list is for NVDA, you are saying or implying that the message is off topic and not appropriate for the list.  That is in conflict with the long practice of the list, which is to allow some off topic content. 
 
I have no reason to question your motivation.  And I don't think you intended to send moderation-like messages to the list.  But the question is how the messages appear, not of your intent.  I hope that you will consider these points and not view it as a contest where some people disagree and others agree in support of you.  I'm asking you to consider what I am saying and see if you understand and agree with it. 
 
If you send messages that appear to be moderation messages, then regardless of your intentions, the messages will be interpreted as moderation messages.  I hope you now understand why.
