Re: Question for NVDA Compiler Team?

Jason White
 

Windows 10X could pose challenges, depending on what is involved in making NVDA run in that environment, if it is indeed feasible at all. There’s a real possibility that Windows 10X could represent the future of Microsoft’s operating systems, even though the first release is intended only for dual-screen portable devices.

Thank you for your reply Quentin, I been using NVDA for backup speech since version 14 now & have seen a lot of great changes over that period. It has come a longways. Thank you to everyone that makes NVDA the great screen reader it is!

Re: Editing of Windows onecore voices

 

Using the voice dictionary limits the pronunciation change to the synth & voice being used when the entry is made, if memory serves.  Contrast this with the speech dictionary which makes the substitution for all synths.

I appreciate all the suggestions.  However, how does  one do this using a laptop?  Your keystroke suggestions are for a desktop layout not a laptop.

 

I have searched through the NVDA help and can find nothing about moving the screen cursor or system cursor to the currently focused object.

 

Maybe this can't be done on a laptop?

OE Classic fixes list accessibility.

 

Glad to see they responded to feedback! Lists have been fixed in the version 3.1. This version isn't available for free users yet. My guess is, that when OE Classic 3.2 comes into beta, then free users will get 3.1. See below for links and emails.

This is an email client that's supposed to be a modern imitation of Outlook Express.. Profiles and IMAP is not supported in the free version yet.

The announcement email.

At last, we can announce a huge improvement for OE Classic accessibility.

Previously, OE Classic lists were unreadable by Jaws and NVDA (or other screen readers).

This is no longer the case!

Now, we've finally cracked the code required to properly announce and narrate those lists to a screen reader. This includes - message list (list of messages), contact list and the list of folders. We went through all the windows and it appears, that this affects all the windows which were previously blank to a screen reader. In addition to that, the names of the lists should now also be properly narrated (such as message list, tree view, followed by a list of actual messages).

Also, when keys are used to navigate (for example, arrow up/down) each individual item is narrated separately (which could be a folder name, a contact name or a subject line of a selected message) which is consistent with the standard message list.

This is a huge improvement for accessibility in OE Classic. Combined with the earlier improvement we did - message boxes, this will make OE Classic a whole lot more accessible. Even though there is still room for improvement which of course we'll continue to work upon, we believe that this one will make a significant difference for OE Classic users in their daily usage.

The new feature is available in OE Classic 3.1, today's update (2020, February 17th) so if you're using an older version, please update to use this feature.

Best regards, Zvonko Tesic

I can't find that word in any dictionary, but that's beside the point, as there's lots of jargon that doesn't appear in many general purpose dictionaries.

I can't think of a single synthesizer that pronounces everything correctly.  And that's but one of the reasons for the dictionary feature of most screen readers where you can substitute some phonetic spelling that, somehow, the synthesizer does produce correctly that's unrelated to the actual spelling of a given word.  I've had to do trial and error until I found a letter pattern that gave me the actual pronunciation I wanted for a low frequency word.

Re: NVDA Add-ons for Foobar2000/FreeCommander XE?

You really don't need any nvda add ons for foobar. I use it all the time and it's very very accessible. You can set up keyboard shortcuts to do most of the tasks.

Take care

Re: MP3 Direct Cut Chattering too Much with NVDA Add-On

I just tried mp3 Direct Cut using the latest nvda and the latest add on.  I'm not experiencing anything like this. It doesn't make a sound at all while just playing a file. It doesn't speak every second or anything else unless I stop it and then it tells me where I am as it has always done.

Unfortunately, I don't even have an idea, what freeCommanderXp does, but their is a chapter in the official NVDA guide dedicated solely to foobar2000. So maybe you don't even need an add-on for that...

Re: profile triggers and what to do if NVDA does not automatically switch to previous profile (observed in alpha 19691 ...)

Hello,

it seems, that restart of NVDA solved a problem, so excuse me to spam a mailing list.

regards, Jožef

profile triggers and what to do if NVDA does not automatically switch to previous profile (observed in alpha 19691 ...)

J.G
 

Hello,

before I'm going open a ticket I would like to ask community in case I have missed something about profiles.

Some years ago I created profiles for applications and say all, which has been brought to NVDA 2019.3.1. And now everytime, when I stop a "say all", NVDA does not switch to previous profile for instance basic profile or app profile. In previous versions like 2019.2.1 it worked fine. It also have worked for some alphas ago. I cannot exactly determine, when it has stopped work. So what can I do to resolve a problem or is it a bug?

I use portable copy of alpha now on version 19691... on windows 10 1909.

thx for your responses.

regards, Jožef
