Re: How to study Japanese with NVDA?

Dan Miner
 

I would like to know this as well because I am trying to teach myself Japanese.  As I understand it, the braille system is based on kana.  NVDA I believe uses the louis braille library and so it might be as easy as loading that “code page” and converting the text into some braille format just like we do for English.  But it would be nice to have automagic switching in a web page with a language markup on the passages.

Anyway, I would like to know more about this too.

Here is one problem:

Japanese has a japanese braille, but It is not implemented to NVDA, because of three alphabets, which are used in Japanese.

About speech synthesizers, I know that Windows has some japanese voices, but I don't know, how to new japanese keyboard layout.

I have asked this last question, because keys to switch keyboard layout were changed. I think on japanese characters, not switch from one language to another language. For example, I would like to switch from Hiragana to Katakana and Romaji. About Kanji letters, You can press twice time spacebar and select one kanji letter, press enter and It'll be written down.

That's everything, which I know about japanese keyboard layout.

Hello

 

I have been asked to help a blind University student who is studying Japanese. The goal is to be able to read on a Braille display connected to a Windows10 computer.

 

Anybody with experience in studying Japanese on a system in e.g. English or some other language?

 

I have been told that in order for Japanese Braille to work properly, the entire computer needs to be in Japanese. We are using the computer either in Danish or in English.

 

I tried running a portable copy of NVDA from www.nvda.jp, but it didn’t start right away.

 

So, hope someone with experience in this would be willing to share their knowledge.

 

Thanks in advance.

Same reaction here, I used it under msdos with Word Perfect 5.1, the last version that I've used was 6.0.

David,

          Related to this, did you ever get to play with SoftMaker Free Office, TextMaker in particular, if it was installed with the "use menus" style rather than the more typical ribbons?  I've already verified that the ribbons are not accessible, but the testing I was able to do suggested that the menus interface was completely accessible.

           It's a shame that the installer, where you have to make the choice of menus versus ribbons, is not (or wasn't for me) accessible, but that's a small price to pay if the three programs that are the equivalents of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are completely accessible via the menu-style interface.

Re: Advice wanted: Accessible twain document cameras that work with NVDA?

Richard Kuzma
 

Good morning,
I know you said desk space is limited,
But if you get an inexpensive flatbed scanner all you need software wise is what is called a twain driver and the other software should see it transparently.
I have good luck with canon scanners and have picked up several off ebay.
Also someone might hae an older all in one printer that the printer is no longer working and you should be able to just use the scanner part.
Might be a free/inexpensive solution.
Sorry as I see you said desk space is limited, but just some suggestions.
Also, if you are looking for a low cost way to scan the stuff, , tex cloner is around 100 or so.
It is by premier literacy but not sure if they are still around or not.

Subject: [nvda] Advice wanted: Accessible twain document cameras that work with NVDA?

Hello Everyone.

I am wondering if anyone can help with the following. I am looking for a document camera as desk space is limited. I do not want a camera which is tied to any specific software if it can be helped. I have previously tried solutions from visionaid and the Perl camera from freedom scientific, but I was never able to get them working with any software other than the software the devices come with.

I have seen document cameras for sale on Amazon, but it's unclear from the description if any of them work with scanning software such as DocuScan, Free OCR, Kurzweil etc. I don't mind what software the camera uses as long as it's accessible and performs OCR, and the unit is reasonably well built and isn't too pricey. does anyone have any ideas?

Very best wishes,

Mo.

You may be able to select text using NVDA itself, the insert f9 and insert f10 method. Someone would have to try it.

Re: word perfect

 

Well I don't see much use for wordperfect since ms word can decode it.

Wordperfect as it is now is not the wordperfect that existed before.

Even in the old days I rarely used it.

I had keysoft then but it was still given to me.

Somewhere I have a licence number, but I never got it.

Re: word perfect

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

I am a bit late on this thread, but here's my two cents. I used Word Perfect 5.0, 5.1 for DOS.  Then I used 6.0 and 6.1 for Windows.  This was before Corel bought it. I used Word Perfect 12.0 as late as 2010 and it was largely accessible--at least in so far as the Word Perfect program itself--I mean the editor.  Quatro Pro and (wow it's been so long I  forget what the oither elements of the suite were called) were limited in their accessibility.  But if you wanted to use the main editor called Corel Word Perfect 12, it was quite accessible. This was a long time ago, if possible, see if you can get a demo of the program and check its accessibility, you might be surprised.  And then again, who knows?

Hello all,

The keyboard command to focus the password saving prompt and other similar prompts in Edge (and maybe other Chromium-based browsers) is Alt+Shift+A.

Re: How to get NVDA to read password notification in Edge

Gene
 

As I recall, the discussion was originally about Firefox. What I discussed was regarding Firefox. I had thought, though I've seen such things very little since I turn automatic password prompts off in all browsers, but my recollection is that if I hear alert and screen-reader readable text is present, if I just do nothing, the alert will be read along with the shortcut commands. When you hear the word alert, do you just immediately stop doing anything or do you do something?

I'm not sure if you can find alert text in browsers by moving by f6, though I have found it in this or that browser. But when you hear the word alert, if you want to see if something is read, just stop briefly.

Also, there arte times when I hear the word alert and nothing is spoken that is of any use and where I can't find any screen-reader readable text. I generally ignore alert announcements of the sort if I hear them in future in similar circumstances.

Subject: [nvda] password notification in edge



Hi guys:

I’ve read all of your responses;

First,

I hit f6 many times till I circled around back to the page itself.

Second,

How do I know to even hit alt-s when I don’t know that the notification is even there?

Third,

I am using the latest edge browser.





Please advise as you like.



Mike M.

I heard that too. When I had my first computer another blind user told me not to have your computer remember your password.  I never have it remember the password.  I notice with NVDA I have to hit the f 6 to get to where I want. When I used jaws I’d hit enter and it will go.

I've seen computer advisors advise not to have passwords remembered by

browsers.  There are ways to do so that are a lot more secure, from what

I've read.

well Brian sure I suppose that might be helpful if I can learn how to turn

it off so I don’t have to worry about if it remembers my passwords or not

but I also like the idea of having it remember my password because half the

time I don’t remember what they are but I know that dialogue asked if I

wanted to save it the password forever never whatever

Mike,

 

             I can't answer your actual question, but have a follow-up one

for you that may make your own question irrelevant:  Do you ever want Edge

(or any web browser you happen to use) to be remembering your passwords for

you?

 

             If not, this feature can be turned off entirely, and I can tell

you how to do that.  But if you do want to use the password management

feature I don't know of the top of my head how one throws focus to that

specific dialog when it appears.
