Re: feedback and loving the next snapshot

you can speed those up, way way up. go to settings, time and language, then speech, then tab over to the speed or rate slider, put it up to 100. then set your NVDA speech rate to 10 or 20 just to make sure when you load the one core voices they are not too fast. then you should be good to go. 


Blank lines

juan gonzalez <jgonzalezh614@...>
 

Good day all! Is there a way to turn off NVDA announcing blank when navigating with the arrow keys every time it comes upon a blank line? It seems to not announce blank lines when doing the read all command which is what I prefer. I remember back in Window-Eyes day. It came with such a feature. If NVDA has no such feature where can I request it?


Re: windows update, NVDA snapshot and pins

Josh Kennedy
 

yes its sort of like using a debit card. but your pin is tied to your specific device and is not stored on a server in the cloud. the pin uses the trusted platform module security chip found in most all computers. according to microsoft, using a pin is much more secure than a password. your pin is like a macro or shortcut that signs you in automatically. the pin takes care of the whole sign in process. 


Re: Problem with Eloquence for windows

Hi,

There is an updated version, which you can download from your dealer, which will avoid this problem in the future.

This problem is not caused by Microsoft, but rather the Eloquence licensing system. The software appears to tie the license to the specific version of windows being used and invalidates the license when that version changes.

Hello List. Sky here. I have a problem with eloquence for windows. I upgraded to windows spring update, and it went well, but when I restarted, NVDA came up with SAPI 5 version of Eloquence, and it said, please register this product. When I went to activate the product, I was told that all of my licences had been activated. When I hit the deactivate button, I got an error that says that your not connected to the internet, even though I am connected to the internet. What can I do? I have a difficult time with one core, and I am familiar with Eloquence because I used it in JAWS and Window-Eyes. Any help you could give me would be appreciated! Thanks, Sky.

i am definitely experiencing trouble with the message list after upgrading to the 1803 version of Windows. not sure if there has been an Office 16 upgrade as well.
while my message list doesn't say empty, it won't read it smoothly. it is as if it is stuck and the cursor won't move from one message to the other. if i click on the message, it reads the message without my knowing what message that was. i am running the latest of everything.
i have had to install JAWS to be able to get through this and the version 18, april 2017 version works just fine.
i hope there is a fix for this on NVDA.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the feedback!

Re the OCR addon - you are correct, the addon is still needed for those
using Windows 7 or 8 / 8.1. The new OCR feature that we tap into is built
in-to Windows itself.

Re the new eSpeak NG, we've updated the version of eSpeak NG we use. Most
users probably won't notice much of a difference, but (hopefully) it fixes
some bugs that users were having. Possibly not all, but do keep letting us
know of any issues.

Kind regards

Hello,

I think the subject says it.

I just tried an install portable of the next NVDA snapshot! I love it!

First the positive, the new control panel layout, that is great! That
to me is going to be my most favorite feature of the next release (I'm
falling over my words).

I love the new control panel, I am also liking the integration of
win10 OCR, one thing though question with older windows versions will
the OCR addon need to be used?

I love the play sounds when autosuggestions appear option, I was
noticing it in I think 2017.4 but just found the setting, love it! I
realize it's minor but it's quite nice.

Before I get in to my comment/potential slight negative I've got a
question. I'm running win10 1709 with this latest next snapshot. What
synthesizers are bundled with it? I ask because I heard list talk
about a new Espeak-NG, if it's here I am really not hearing the
difference. Is there builtin support for SAPI 4, SAPI5, Microsoft
Speech platform, and windows 1 core voices or is that because i'm
running it on 10? If they are integrated I like that, but I am
noticing a slight sluggishness with the windows 1 core voices, I'm
using David and I had to max his voice rate out and even then there's
a slight sluggishness. It's just a perception.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.
Dave.

Re: Windows 10: where do I find updates?

Angela Delicata
 

Good, so I  had a look in settings and saw the options you described which are very useful. I did not even know about them.

I know very little on Win 10 as I am using it since six month, exactly when I started using nvda smile; it goes without saying my knowledge on pcs in general is  poor... So, I get lost from time to time.


Thank you again for the useful tips.

Hi Angela
You have already been into the Security and Updates section of the Settings
dialog, so if you go back there, and tab down to an item entitled 'Change
active hours' and press enter. You can now set start/end times when you
will be using the computer, during which Windows will not receive updates.
If you use these times Judiciously, you can set things up so that the
computer is switched on at times outside your start/end times so that
updates will be applied. Note that when you have just opened the Security
and updates dialog, the first item you tab to is a list control. This list
box determines which items of information you view when you subsequently
tab into the main body of the dialog. It defaults to the top item which is
'Windows updates' but if you want to view anything else, use the arrow keys
to navigate the list, spacebar to select a topic, then tab into the related
controls. When finished, find and activate the 'Home' button to return to
the main Settings window.

Another updates related feature is in the Accounts section of the Settings
window. Activate this, then select 'Sign-in options' from the list box
control on this page. Tab down to 'Use my sign-in info to automatically
finish setting up my device after an update or restart.' And check it. Now
tab to the home button to exit. This feature will allow your computer to
apply updates which require a re-boot to finish installing should your
machine be un-attended.

Remote tracking in next

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

Just thought I'd mention that there is, under test in the next branch a system which will send to nvda what synth is in use amongst other data collected when you do an update.
Those in Europe will be glad to hear that a way to opt in will be given before the system reaches the Master snaps. I don't think this is really a privacy issue, as its just to monitor what people use the most for feedback on development urgency etc, but given the touchiness of the collection of data recently, its best I think to have it out in the open now. GDPR not withstanding.

Anyone using a virginmedia company handled email address may well in the last week or so have found that messages are missing if using pop3. I found them in the spam folder and copied them back to inbox in imap, and they have now been delivered over pop3. This is mainly this list and the Espeak one by the looks of it, and both contain unusual words or brand names like Lenovo or similar, so if you have not looked in spam recently might be worth a look.

Someone at Microsoft should look into this, what if a power cut occurs

Of courst the well known Avast issue which I see has been mentioned here as well. Might be worth putting off the update if the machine is being used as a critical systm.

I did not seem to receive updates automatically, but maybe I did and had not realized it... One thing is when I when to settings and updates, like some one here suggested, I found few updates still pending.

Anyway, thank you to all who repied: it is amazing how responsive and helpful this list is.

Ciao.

Hi Angela
Windows updates are applied automatically if you're on a Home version of
Windows 10. I think the Pro editions have some limited control but I don't
know to what level this is. Essentially I just leave it to sort itself out.

Cheers
Chris

Subject: [nvda] Windows 10: where do I find updates?

Hi,

The question is all in the subject line: i don't seem to be able to find
them because the location seems to be different from Win 7.

In other words: where are updates located? Where do I have to go in
order to install them? And is there a way to check for updates
automatically and have a notification when they are ready?

Thank you so much.

Re: feedback and loving the next snapshot

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the feedback!

Re the OCR addon - you are correct, the addon is still needed for those using Windows 7 or 8 / 8.1.  The new OCR feature that we tap into is built in-to Windows itself.

Re the new eSpeak NG, we've updated the version of eSpeak NG we use.  Most users probably won't notice much of a difference, but (hopefully) it fixes some bugs that users were having.  Possibly not all, but do keep letting us know of any issues.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hello,

I think the subject says it.

I just tried an install portable of the next NVDA snapshot! I love it!

First the positive, the new control panel layout, that is great! That
to me is going to be my most favorite feature of the next release (I'm
falling over my words).

I love the new control panel, I am also liking the integration of
win10 OCR, one thing though question with older windows versions will
the OCR addon need to be used?

I love the play sounds when autosuggestions appear option, I was
noticing it in I think 2017.4 but just found the setting, love it! I
realize it's minor but it's quite nice.

Before I get in to my comment/potential slight negative I've got a
question. I'm running win10 1709 with this latest next snapshot. What
synthesizers are bundled with it? I ask because I heard list talk
about a new Espeak-NG, if it's here I am really not hearing the
difference. Is there builtin support for SAPI 4, SAPI5, Microsoft
Speech platform, and windows 1 core voices or is that because i'm
running it on 10? If they are integrated I like that, but I am
noticing a slight sluggishness with the windows 1 core voices, I'm
using David and I had to max his voice rate out and even then there's
a slight sluggishness. It's just a perception.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.
Dave.
