You can just type %appdata%\nvda into the run dialog and get there.


There's also Explore NVDA user configuration directory in the NVDA folder in the Start menu.

Absolutely true.  And a great piece of information.   I'm just not presuming that most will be in a context where environment variables are at play when looking for it.

If you're trying to find the folder I noted earlier, and that %appdata% would get you to, in File Explorer you must have set hidden files and folders to be displayed, otherwise the AppData folder is hidden.

Hello!


It is also possible to use:

%appdata%\nvda\speechDicts

to open the folder where are stored all personal dictionaries.

Substitute the correct part of the file path for you own user account for C:\Users\brite and that's where your respective speech dictionary should be, too.

Re: backup speech dictionaries

I don't know where the .dic files are located in the installed version of NVDA.  In the portable version,, they are in the userconfig folder in a subfolder named speech dicts.  You can copy that folder wherever you want as a backup.  Or, you can make a portable version of your installed version and during the installation, you will be able to keep all your settings.  I don't know how it is worded, but the speech dictionaries will be backed up as part of the portable version.

Re: NVDA 2019.3.1 and External Soundcard and Firefox

Pele West
 

Hi Quentin

Thanks for your suggestions. Apologies if the message below seems a
little muddled. I have done so much uninstalling and reinstalling lately.

Before I wrote my first message I tried to change the output device in
the way you describe. The problem is that NVDA does not seem to see the
external sound card.

I started off by installing NVDA from a portable version created using a
different machine. The first time I did this, NVDA could see the sound
card and I was able to set it.

When I found it would not work with Firefox I uninstalled NVDA and
deleted the NVDA folder in AppData. Since then it has not been possible
to change to the external sound card as NVDA does not see it.

I use Window-Eyes on this machine and it works perfectly with the
external sound card.

I have also run the NVDA Com Registration Tool twice, and Firefox still
does not work. However, it does work using Chrome and Internet Explorer.

Both machines use Windows 7.

Is it worth trying to install NVDA from a download installation and
configuring it?

I have the add-on installed in a portable copy of 2019.,2.1, but since
every other add-on I use is now supported under 2019.3.1, It seems
pointless keeping this around if I can get it sorted.

So I was wondering if any of you know why this might be. I have checked
my screen resolution and scaling; both are set to their recommended
values. The app also can't be maximised.

Windows 10's OCR engine works everywhere else. It's literally just this
one thing I need to use the legacy add-on for.

I'm using Windows 10 home Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.657).

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: NVDA 2019.3.1 and External Soundcard and Firefox

Hi Pele,

In NVDA's synthesizer settings, you can select your output device.  Press NVDA+control+S, then press TAB once to move to output device.  Use the arrows to select the desired device and enter to start using it.  If something doesn't work right, you can press NVDA+control+r to revert to the saved settings.

Re NVDA reporting unknown in Firefox, you could try running NVDA's COM Registration Fixing Tool from the tools menu.  Press NVDA+N then T to get to the tools menu then use the arrow keys to select that option and enter, then follow the prompts.

Regards

Quentin.

How do I persuade it to recognize it?

Window-Eyes sees it as Speakers USB Audio.

Also, I have installed and uninstalled the latest version of Firefox a

Chrome.

Can anyone advise me on these points?

I recently purchased a touch screen monitor for my desktop PC and NVDA works as expected – when I touch the screen, it speaks aloud whatever I touch. However, I just got a new laptop that also has a touch screen and NVDA is not behaving that same way. When I touch my laptop’s screen, whatever I touch is activated immediately instead of spoken aloud. Does anyone know why this might be? I looked through NVDA’s settings but didn’t find anything. Strange that it would be different on these two machines.

Re: installing the Alan voice

Hmmmm. Interesting. The person who first posted about the RH voice on this list said you need the nvda add on, the English Language Package add on, and then any voice you want.  I can try removing the English Language package and see if it still works.  If it does, then I wonder why it is offered as an nvda add on and why this person said we need it to make it work.
