Re: NVDA 2019.3 Beta 3 now available

 

What you can do right now is turn off windows defender, unzip the addon into a empty folder, select all the files in that folder, and zip it back up then rename the file to nvda-addon.

Make sure you zip up the files and not make a new folder and zip that up because it won't work then.

Anyway after you do that, it works.

Its a bit more to do but it seems to fix it.

The only thing that makes sence is its the zipping program used, but who knows.

I have always used 7zip for zip and unzip opperations and use the 7z format for most things these days as do my friends.

Hi, Quentin

This is noted. I appreciate of your diligent response
but before I letting off you go for this topic. I still have one more question from you. Smile.
Since we are close to stable phase of the nvda 2019.3
would there be a chance that the addons for the Remote will be release at the same time?

Hi Robert,

 

Thanks for the question.  Firstly, for everyone, We've pushed out a couple of pull requests to update NVDARemote for 2019.3, so that will be available for the stable version.

 

As to including NVDA Remote into NVDA itself, even though many users use it frequently and it is vital for some users, it is not something we are looking at bringing into core at this point, One reason for this is we have a number of users in corporate environments and we would get a lot of pushback from them (or their IT people at least) on updating NVDA to a version with that functionality.

 

The main thing is that the functionality will continue to be available going forward, even though at this point that will still involve the separate add-on.

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

As you are all quick off the mark, this isn't completely new news, but confirming that yes, NVDA 2019.3 beta 3 is now available from: https://www.nvaccess.org/post/nvda-2019-3beta3-now-available-for-testing/ 

 

This is slight progression from the previous beta so you shouldn't notice too many big changes - of course as always happens, as we move closer to the final release, we don't put as many big new features in, but rather try to ensure that everything is stable and fix bugs people have reported in previous betas.

 

If you do encounter any issues, please do report them: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues  If you could also clarify whether they are new issues or existing issues (which hadn't previously been reported) that would be really helpful - both are important to know about, but being able to pinpoint when something started being an issue helps narrow down where to look for a fix.

 

All things going well, this will be the last beta before the release candidate, which will be just before the final stable release.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

Re: In-build dual voice in NVDA 2019.3 and above

Timei
 

my fault. I should elaborate on the essence of the problem.
so. I am Russian and use the Ivona synthesizer: Tatyana for the Russian text and Sally for English. I tried all available synthesizers that exist and came to the conclusion that not one Russian voice of any synthesizer reads normally English text. they read, but it’s very difficult to understand what exactly. also Tatyana almost perfectly pronounces my native language, which other synthesizers cannot afford. therefore, the lack of this synthesizer in future versions of nvda is a problem for me. I think that not only for me.
now about github. I could write in the "issue. but this is not an issue. it needs to be written in feature request, but they don’t have such an item on the page.

Re: Nvda start up question

Gene
 

That's good.  I wanted to make sure, given the Windows 7 interface, and not knowing how Windows 10 handles that choice.  If it’s a combo box, you don't have to select anything if there is only one item or if you want to use the item you are already on.  In Windows 7, it is a list. 
 
Even though it is unnecessary in this case, I hope what I wrote will help some people if they have been having problems in some cases in lists and they didn't know why.

Hi gene


I just had a look at what I had typed and followed the steps as in the tutorial.

When it says choose a device in this case there was only one it did not have to be selected at all it was default.

It is a combo box and if I say press the space bar on it then say use alt key + down arrow key it will open it up but there are no other options there even though it says 1 of 2.


It when written was for the speakers that most people have plugged in.



it might be different if there was a second sound out put there may be other options.


In this case the combo box I think it is can either be opened with the space bar then arrowed down or the alt key + down arrow key will do the same then arrow down if other options were there. In this case not.

Hi


if it is the sound enhancements doing it one of the tutorials I have not
posted yet might help it is a draft where to look.


Disabling sound enhancements in Windows

Sometimes when there is an update for Windows, you may hear a buzzing
sound (and other strange noises) from the computer while using NVDA.

If this is the case, you will need to turn off sound enhancements in
Windows for your sound card. The steps to turn it off may be similar for
other Windows 10 computers.

Press the Windows key, and in the search box type sound settings. When
it comes up with this result, press the Enter key. The first option
might say Choose your output device Speakers (High Definition Audio
Device). Next, tab once to device properties, then press the Enter key.
The next screen that comes up will say home. If you tab about 7 times
you will then hear NVDA say Additional device properties. Press the
enter key.

The next screen should come up with speaker properties. Shift tab back
once or twice - until you hear NVDA say General. There are 5 tabs there.
Use your right arrow key to get to the enhancements tab, then tab a
couple of times until you hear NVDA say Disable all enhancements. This
should be a check box. Please note, in some cases, after you tab once
(after the enhancements tab) you might need to arrow down or tab to
locate the disable all enhancements checkbox. You will hear other stuff
for the sound card being spoken out, but they can be left unchecked. You
will need to tab to hear the "disable enhancements" checkbox if you
arrowed down the list of enhancements and check the checkbox with the
Spacebar. You will then need to apply and ok your changes with the Spacebar.

Now, those weird buzzing sounds etcetera should be gone!

If you do encounter any issues, please do report them: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues  If you could also clarify whether they are new issues or existing issues (which hadn't previously been reported) that would be really helpful - both are important to know about, but being able to pinpoint when something started being an issue helps narrow down where to look for a fix.

All things going well, this will be the last beta before the release candidate, which will be just before the final stable release.

Kind regards

Re: In-build dual voice in NVDA 2019.3 and above

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,
regarding ESpeak, did you know that google translate uses ESpeak for some languages? It uses the default variant. And my local tv stations, when you turn on the SAP secondary audio program channel in the menu of your tv or set-top-box, and if there is a weather or some other emergency, the voice reading the emergency information is a slowed-down ESpeak using the U.S. american accent with the default variant selected. So ESpeak seems to be the voice of choice for reading emergency information for tv stations, and for google translate.

Hi,
Should I completely uninstall nvda2019.2 including deleting all its folders on my hard drive before installing nvda2019.3 betas? Because it now uses python3? Or will the updater or installer for the beta take care of all this for me?

Hi Quentin,

Reading by character stopped for me in this version as well as in any alpha version newer than 28th Jan.

Hi


are you talking about the add on that after a second or 2 would say the letter  it was on like A  for alfa B for bravo etc.


I just can not think what that add on name was called.


are you aware also you can find out what the letter is on the numeric keypad if using the review cursor


Hitting the number 2 of the numeric keypad 2 times would say it like that or 5 on the numeric key pad would do the word if hit 3 times..

Re: Nvda start up question

Hi


That is what I do also after I open the combo box arrow down to what I want then press the enter key on the one i want and it is chosen.


may be there are some slight changes between versions of windows to what you do.

Pressing enter has nothing to do with selecting a device in a standard list, or selecting a file or anything else.  Pressing enter executes a left click on the chosen item.  You are in a dialog with a list.  You select the item by arrowing to it and then you tab around the dialog.  Its selecting the item that causes the dialog to show relevant controls or whatever else is provided for. 
 
I don't know if you can use space to select an item in Windows 10 in the list or equivalent list we are discussing.  You can't in Windows 7.  You must use the up and down arrow keys.

In this case, when you select by using the up or down arrow? Do you hit the enter key so that your device is chosen? I did this when I got my ten box. I don’t remember doing this with windows 7.  I don’t know why I did not hit the space bar when choosing a device. I just hit enter and the device was chosen.

When you say choose your device, it would be good to say after that to up or down arrow to select a device, even if there is only one.  That is, if it is that way in Windows 10.  In Windows 7, even if there is only one device, you have to up or down arrow to select it.  The space bar doesn't work and if nothing is selected, there is nothing but an o.k. button.

Hi


if it is the sound enhancements doing it one of the tutorials I have not
posted yet might help it is a draft where to look.


Disabling sound enhancements in Windows

Sometimes when there is an update for Windows, you may hear a buzzing
sound (and other strange noises) from the computer while using NVDA.

If this is the case, you will need to turn off sound enhancements in
Windows for your sound card. The steps to turn it off may be similar for
other Windows 10 computers.

Press the Windows key, and in the search box type sound settings. When
it comes up with this result, press the Enter key. The first option
might say Choose your output device Speakers (High Definition Audio
Device). Next, tab once to device properties, then press the Enter key.
The next screen that comes up will say home. If you tab about 7 times
you will then hear NVDA say Additional device properties. Press the
enter key.

The next screen should come up with speaker properties. Shift tab back
once or twice - until you hear NVDA say General. There are 5 tabs there.
Use your right arrow key to get to the enhancements tab, then tab a
couple of times until you hear NVDA say Disable all enhancements. This
should be a check box. Please note, in some cases, after you tab once
(after the enhancements tab) you might need to arrow down or tab to
locate the disable all enhancements checkbox. You will hear other stuff
for the sound card being spoken out, but they can be left unchecked. You
will need to tab to hear the "disable enhancements" checkbox if you
arrowed down the list of enhancements and check the checkbox with the
Spacebar. You will then need to apply and ok your changes with the Spacebar.

Now, those weird buzzing sounds etcetera should be gone!

Hi


As long as it is python 3 compatible


I believe the paid version is meant to be or not far off it. I do not use it but others do on the list so they may be able to give more info.

Hi.
I found a problem with beta3 which didn't exist in the previous beta.
We seam to have an issue with the address bar of google chrome canary.
If we use the left and right arrow keys to read the address we just typed,
or if we want to make changes, the error sound plays and nvda doesn't read
any characters.

Fortunately chrome stable works fine which is the one most people are
using.
Thanks
