Re: Continuing my saga with Vocalizer voices with latest NVDA

Simone Dal Maso
 

on my opinion it seems you should redownload the compact voices.
The driver itself seems ok, the problem is in the compact voices packages.
So try first with a normal voice, redownloaded, if work try to redownload the compact.

Hi,

This trick was employed so an add-on author does not have to worry about setting this flag every time NVDA’s version changes.

I looked at the manifest for the voices I have installed, and it says that the last tested NVDA version is 2099.4, which does not exist. So, I'd assume these haven't been tested to work with the latest version as of yet.

Enhanced Touch Gestures 20.02 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Enhanced Touch Gestures 20.02 is now available. This is sort of a minor release with localization updates. But under the surface, it is a major update in that NVDA alpha snapshot users will not need the add-on to perform right mouse clicks (one finger tap and hold).

 

Cheers,

Re: The period key not speaking

Vaibhav Bhandari
 

Hi,
What I would suggest you is to uninstall NVDA and then go to roaming
by typing %appdata% in the Run dialogue box and there, delete the NVDA
folder. Then when you install it, hopefully the problem would be
solved. And also, don't forget to backup your addons if you wish to
not install them again.
Hope that helped

Both the key for period and the word period are still silent. If I

As

If that is the case, it sounds like you have a dictionary entry to
replace
the word period with nothing. In that case, press NVDA+N, then P then D
then ENTER (we'll start with the default dictionary - if this doesn't
work,
try the same thing but instead of pressing ENTER here, down arrow once to

Now I know I'm not the only one with this issue. Sometimes my tab key
doesn't work, and sometimes I can't even get the page in NVDA's focus,
and pressing F6 only cycles through address bar and tab control. It
doesn't bring me back to the full page. After I restart NVDA, it
works. Something weird is definitely going on here.

NVDA countless times just for one survey. What could be causing this,

I tried insert+space, and that didn't do the trick either.

Ok, so thanks to some of our Twitter followers I noticed the error in my message - would you believe... it was:

a) Deliberate to see if you were paying attention
b) Nostalgic
c) My keyboard has every regular key except the number 3, (er, the number between 2 and 4)

Ok, I'll stop now :)
