Hi,
By the way, for JAWS users here: yes, you heard it right when I mentioned skim reading and alternate say all as NVDA features.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,
There are three parts left (actually, four because I need to split preferences section into two). The next part I'll be working on is preferences and it'll take around (or more than) three hours to traverse due to sheer number of options now, and it won't be fun to just talk about them (you'll actually get to hear the effects of changing options). In addition to talking about preferences, you'll be introduced to more NVDA features, including alternate say all, skim reading, synth settings ring, demos of different speech synthesizers, a deeper introduction to speech dictionaries than what you'll find in the user guide, indentation tones, keyboard interrupt, screen echo and more.
After preferences, I'll stop by tools to talk about speech viewer, log viewer and what not, as well as a complete coverage of configuration profiles and Windows 10 OCR. After that, the last part will indeed cover add-ons, and there are cool add-ons featured in there.
For folks just getting introduced to NVDA: a few years ago, when I published the first edition of Welcome to NVDA (2013), I advertised it as the audio version of the NVDA user guide, and I'm not kidding. My tutorial covers everything you need to know about NVDA, including installation, usage, preferences to add-ons. I think some of you call it the authoritative tutorial or the one-stop reference, but there are more interesting tutorials out now, including the definitive authoritative one in the form of Basic Training module from NV Access. But this year, I think you can say mine is one of the most authoritative guide on NVDA, as it is a tutorial produced by an actual NVDA expert with years of NVDA contribution experience and a person who wrote some of the features discussed in this tutorial set. The feature to play suggestion sound you hear throughout this tutorial is one of my brainchildren, and you'll get to see another one once we talk about how to disable individual add-ons.
Cheers,
Joseph

Re: Where are the pluggins?

 

Hi,

Er, you’re still using Windows 10 Calculator add-on? That was released a long time ago, superseded by WinTenApps.

Going back to the original question from Tonea: speech viewer is part of NVDA.

To others: I think it might not be wise to tell her all sorts of add-ons you’ve got, as Tonea wants to find out where Focus Highlight is and someone did gave the answer.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

 

There are a number of useful add ons available. You are only limited by your imagination. Some that I would recommend because I use them on almost an everyday basis are: OBJ-pad, golden cursor, windows 10 app essentials, clip contents designer, clip speak, easy table navigator, emoticons, enhanced aria, place markers, read feeds, remote support, resource monitor, and systray list, I'm sure other NVDA users will also weigh in on this with recommendations and suggestions.    


Hope this helps.

If anyone knows of another plugin I should look at, now would be the time. Remember, I’m sighted and trying to make our software and support documents handicap accessible. I need to have this turned in ASAP (as soon as possible).

I'd like to second Joseph's advice to actually install NVDA and see how it presents your application.  But in addition, as a sighted user you will probably want to do two things:

 

1. Install the "Focus Highlight" plugin -- it makes it *far* easier to visually see what NVDA is describing at any given point in time; and

2. Enable the "Speech Viewer" feature (under Tools in the NVDA menu) -- it shows everything going to the speech synthesizer, but it just appears in a scrolling window -- quite useful!

You might try Textaloud which seems to have a scan engine in there somewhere.

currently I am using Docuscan from Seratek which does an excellent job with pdf files.

If someone has adobe acrobat pro, could I possibly send the file to you and you OCR it and send it back? I'm thinking through all options. If anyone can help, it is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi, Robert,

 

Go to the top of the page and hit H 3 times to get to the heading. It'll take you to the 2018 tutorial.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi everyone,

 

The next installment in Welcome to NVDA 2018 tutorial set is now available from www.josephsl.net/tutorials. This one (part 5) is a bit livelier than the last one, as it covers a diverse set of features, including more than 20 applications, several add-ons, and couple NVDA features.

 

Changes from 2015 edition:

 

  • Completely redone and reorganized, including division into three themes: Microsoft Office, universal apps, and other apps and tools.
  • Microsoft Word: enhancements over the years are showcased, including elements list, formatting commands, moving to next/previous spelling errors, spelling error buzzer, and a brief demonstration of braille input (complete with word echo (speak typed words, in this case, speak back-translation results from contracted braille to text).
  • Microsoft Excel: cell comments, column/row headers, and a word on using browse mode to read protected sheets.
  • Microsoft Outlook: introduction to calendar and other facilities besides sending and receiving email, address auto-completion when composing new messages.
  • Microsoft PowerPoint: creating and delivering presentations, speaker notes.
  • Universal apps: mostly first party apps are showcased (requires Windows 10 App Essentials add-on for some features).
  • Microsoft Store: completely revamped interface, keyboard navigation and object navigation.
  • Calculator: the modern version is showcased, including calculator modes, unit and currency conversions and others.
  • Alarms and Clock: running a stopwatch and countdown timer and how to deal with toast notifications.
  • Mail (universal app): basics of this app, including message composition and a note about navigation issues.
  • Skype (universal app): reviewing messages, basic shortcut keys, and how to answer incoming calls.
  • GoldWave: the new Windows Store version is used, along with looking at track information (GoldWave add-on required for additional commands).
  • StationPlaylist Studio: playlist viewer basics (for enhanced experience, install StationPlaylist Studio add-on).
  • Microsoft Visual Studio: code editor and Intelli-Sense.
  • Notepad++: basics and a live example of indentation tones.
  • Kindle for PC: reading a sample book and basic features.
  • 7-Zip and poedit: overview and 7-Zip File Manager, along with a brief visit to Poedit.
  • Command-line tools: Command Prompt, PowerShell, Windows Subsystem for Linux/Bash along with a review of review cursor basics.

 

You may notice different audio qualities for some segments, but overall, it is much better than the 2015 edition. Comments are appreciated.

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: filling PDF form using NVDA

Kristin K <kristin.knudson@...>
 

This is probably old news by now, but I find that when I get forms on line they have to be saved from the website first then re-opened with Adobe (or what ever PDF viewer) before they can be filled in.

Might robobraille translate it for you?

You don't give your name nor whether you want access through IOS or

However, I do want to help if I can.

Do you mean forms and form fields?


Speaking of media players

Well since we were talking about media players. Does anyone know if Zoom Player Max and Zoom Player free work with NVVDA? Thanks.

Re: Accessible pdf

 

I would like access through Windows. I'm using my iPhone until I get my new laptop. There might be a way to OCR a document in regular version of Acrobat Reader DC. I will email you more information.
