No audio version then? Not that I have ever had much luck with the audio version as the steps taken to stop machines listening to it also stops humans understanding it unless they speak what sounds to be Klingon.

Hi all,


A few months ago, I heard about Lyrebird, a future project which would
allow anyone to create a synthetic clone of their own voice. Last night
I found out that it's finally here, in an early beta form. If you go to
http://lyrebird.ai and create an account, you can then record a minimum
of thirty sentences they specify, the more you record the better, and
then create your digital voice. Then you can have it speak any text you
choose. I've played with it, and while the quality isn't the best, it
does pretty accurately capture my voice, as well as most of the other
people I know of who have created voices. Check it out!


Jayson

Re: lag when writing messages in thunderbird

Yes well, in that case then, I'm not sure what the problem is. I have tried Thunderbird a while ago and to me the response is always a bit spongy even in windows 7, but laggy, not really, just a bit like typing on an old rubber keyboard.

I have also had big lags only in TB composition but with both NVDA and
Window-Eyes.

I am running Windows 7 pro on an i7 2.7GHrz processor with 16 GB of RAM. I
don't think the lag should be from a slow machine especially since it
doesn't impact programs like word or excel which can lag with lack of
processing power.

I have the service pack 1 for win 7 and haven't looked into other service
packs. Might that help?

Thoughts?

General sluggishness with Thunderbird. I have a feeling, though,
that this is a Thunderbird issue and nothing to do with NVDA.
Try disabling Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Enable Global Search and
Indexer. Note that this isn't accessibility or screen reader specific,
but I personally found that global search didn't help me and was a
performance killer.

Re: Installation problem

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Hmm, interesting. Not seen this but maybe a file was locked in that version, insofar as trying to replace the folder was concerned. I've often found that a complete restart of the machine can clear this sort of annoying problem.
Many people tend to only put laptops to sleep or hibernate which tends to , at least in the latter case preserve the state of things exactly as they were, and this can be a problem.

Some excellent suggestions.
There was a previous installation of NVDA in appdata and deleting the folder then allowed the installation of NVDA.

Hi



usually in most cases it would be a uac screen that would come up. the portable version would not be able to see it only the installer version. when it comes up it or you would use the alt key + letter Y if i remember right so it keep on installing it.



the other thing is your anti virus could be stopping it? but if it is the one that comes with windows i do not think it would be.



You could always start up narrator on th ewindows 10 creators version use the ctrl key + windows key + the enter key to start him up. Make sure when you go to plug in the portable version then go to start it hopefully narrator might be able to see if there is a message there stopping nvda from been installed.



Is it the first time you done it did you get the same results each time? I think you did.



the worst you could do is use narrator to go to programs and features in control panel and see if nvda was installed. If it was uninstall it.



The other place to to check is %appdata% then press the enter key. When the next screen comes up locate the nvda folder and delete it then use the alt key + f4 key to close that page.



You will most probably have to reboot windows then go back and install nvda maybe the nvda.ini file got corrupted?

Hi all,

I have a really interesting problem that I haven’t been able to solve.
I’ve never had a problem installing NVDA before including the laptop that I’m having problems with. I have downloaded it a couple times to make sure the file wasn’t a problem and have used it to install onto another laptop and it worked fine.

I am using as a backup laptop my very inexpensive Toshiba laptop. 64 bit, With 8Gb Ram. It works fine with the portable version of NVDA.
It’s running the latest Windows 10 creators edition. When I try to install NVDA I get the music that you expect, I then get the rising tones, and then a few seconds later I get the system sound that you would normally need to answer yes or no to, to allow a program to make changes or install. However that doesn’t appear and it is not in the system tray. There is nothing in the task manager or process areas as well.

Any great thoughts would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim.

Re: Nvda 2017.3, errorwave you do not hear

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Yes unless there are specific reasons, ie a small fix etc on one of the snaps, changing from the normal stable version to a snap is only going to get you the error bleeps back and unless there is a programmer willing to continue development of the older version for XP Vista, then reporting any errors that occur here will not get much response.
At the moment Nvda 2017.3 is very capable, arguably better than the equivalent version of Jaws, which also no longer supports the old versions of windows.
Its sad, yes, but inevitable in the fast changing world we live in.

I still retain the xp machines running on the last known good snaps, but that is just cos they work OK and I have disabled the update scanning as it was getting to be annoying and messed up one machine when I ignored an error and installed over a next snap.
nvda_snapshot_master-14374,21b30868.exe
nvda_snapshot_next-14363,0092e3d0.exe

Would seem to be safe.
In fact Master would have gone on being safe until the changes were imported from next but I think Mick felt that its best to put the warning in both branches to avoid any confusion and possibly have a version that almost but not quite works able to install on xp and vista, with the associated complaints that might give!

Hi Adriano, the error sound is usually only played in the snapshot builds -
Next and Master builds. If you are using NVDA 2017.3 you shouldn't hear
them.

Note that NVDA 2017.4 won't support XP anymore. Once we discovered this
with a recent snapshot build, we built in a check which warns you and
automatically offers to install 2017.3 (the stable version). If you were
running off a Next or Master build and updated to one of these newer
versions then followed the prompts to move to 2017.3, you won't be on the
next or master branch anymore and hence won't hear those sounds. Brian can
likely reccomend the exact last builds you can use, but we'd officially
recommend just staying on 2017.3 from now on XP.

Kind regards

Quentin.

hi.
this may be caused by an old version of elequence.
before you update switch to espeak then upgrade and then switch
back.
also do a restart of your laptop.
i dont mean shutdown and restart.
i mean a full restart.

Hmmm did you try to alt tab a few times.

Sometimes I get a uac prompt, usually it pops up but if I for

hidden.

The trick is to know how long something should take to
download and if you heard the completed sound or think it
should be well should be, then you need to alt tab.

On the other hand, the other way you can handle this is
download the main exe file, close everything window wise and
run that.

repeating with simultaneous beeps indefinitely untill finally
it says that the update installation failed. How do I get
over this problem? Should I remove the existing copy of NVDA
and install a fresh copy from scratch?

Alternatively, is it possible to make a portable copy from my
other laptop which has a proper working version and try to
reinstall from that? In that case if it is possible, then I
would be spared from reconfiguring NVDA all over again to
suit my needs.

When you go to install a program, Windows pops up a dialog

Sometimes this dialog appears behind other windows. In

That is usually the reason for this kind of problem.

Re: Installation problem

However, when it comes up, Windows makes a specific sound.  Also, if you just do alt y whether it is read or not, that will answer yes to the question.  To avoid any doubt, you can run Narrator when you run the installer and see if the UAC prompt comes up.

You could always start up narrator on th ewindows 10 creators version use the ctrl key + windows key + the enter key to start him up. Make sure when you go to plug in the portable version then go to start it hopefully narrator might be able to see if there is a message there stopping nvda from been installed.


Is it the first time you done it  did you get the same results each time? I think you did.


the worst you could do is use narrator to go to programs and features in control panel and see if nvda was installed. If it was uninstall it.


The other place to to check is %appdata% then press the enter key. When the next screen comes up locate the nvda folder and delete it then use the alt key + f4 key to close that page.


You will most probably have to reboot windows then go back and install nvda maybe the nvda.ini file got corrupted?

Hi all,

 

I have a really interesting problem that I haven’t been able to solve.

I’ve never had a problem installing NVDA before including the laptop that I’m having problems with. I have downloaded it a couple times to make sure the file wasn’t a problem and have used it to install onto another laptop and it worked fine.

 

I am using as a backup laptop my very inexpensive Toshiba laptop. 64 bit, With 8Gb Ram. It works fine with the portable version of NVDA.

It’s running the latest Windows 10 creators edition. When I try to install NVDA I get the music that you expect, I then get the rising tones, and then a few seconds later I get the system sound that you would normally  need to answer yes or no to, to allow a program to make changes or install. However that doesn’t appear and it is not in the system tray. There is nothing in the task manager or process areas as well.

 

Any great thoughts would be very much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Jim.

I hear you. I do need to refer to messages and do need to switch folders and have things open in Outlook. I have said on other threads that upgrading to insider builds of Office has helped a bit with the problem. However, the problem remains a frequent one. The only cure is a reboot of my computer. I did test with narrator once and found that the problem occurs with it as well so it may be an Office problem.

Re: Nvda 2017.3, errorwave you do not hear

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Adriano, the error sound is usually only played in the snapshot builds - Next and Master builds.  If you are using NVDA 2017.3 you shouldn't hear them.

Note that NVDA 2017.4 won't support XP anymore.  Once we discovered this with a recent snapshot build, we built in a check which warns you and automatically offers to install 2017.3 (the stable version).  If you were running off a Next or Master build and updated to one of these newer versions then followed the prompts to move to 2017.3, you won't be on the next or master branch anymore and hence won't hear those sounds.  Brian can likely reccomend the exact last builds you can use, but we'd officially recommend just staying on 2017.3 from now on XP.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Press TAB four times to get to the Browse button and then press spacebar or enter to activate it.  It should bring up a standard Windows file open dialog.

 

Otherwise, the only thing I can think of, is whether you had explorer crashed or busy in the background or something?

Subject: Re: [nvda] Github

As mentioned, if you want to create a ticket, submit an issue or generally report something that isn't working / could work better / should be implemented etc, what you want to do is create a new issue.  The link to the issues section is https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues <https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues>

Unless you are writing code yourself, you can mostly ignore the other sections (code, pull requests, projects, etc).

Ideally, it's worth jumping to the SECOND edit box on that page to search for the issue you want to report.  (the first one searches code and other things, you want to search issues).  So, if someone reported a problem with footnotes in Word 2016 for instance, I'd search for "word 2016 footnotes" or similar in that second edit box.  There are two types of issues, open and closed. Open issues are either new issues that haven't been triaged yet (that is, no one has looked at them to see how serious they are, whether the issue has already been reported etc), or issues which are being worked on, or waiting to be worked on.  Closed issues are issues which have either been fixed, or which are duplicates of other issues, or sometimes things which can't or won't be fixed.  If the problem with footnotes is that you want them to appear at the top of the page for instance, then that isn't something related to NVDA.  That's a feature request for Word itself and you'd need to submit that to Microsoft.

To create a new issue, there is a "new issue" button, you can jump straight there with https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new <https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new>

When you create a new issue, there is a block of text in the "comment" prompting you for the kinds of information that are useful in diagnosing the issue.  Please try and include: steps to reproduce the issue, attach any files which might help (eg if Word crashes every time you try and check formatting in this particular file, if you can share it, that would help), what should happen and what actually happens, and your system configuration (Windows version, application version, NVDA version and whether installed or portable), and anything you've done to try and resolve or get more information (eg tried different version of NVDA or other program).  Don't stress if you don't have every piece of that information or if you aren't sure if the issue has been filed before. When someone goes to triage the issue, they will ask for more information if needed.  If the issue has been filed previously, they will link to it (and likely close the duplicate issue you created).

If you do have any more questions, please feel free to ask.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Is there a way that some sort of short help information can be inserted after the navigation links on the page, instructing people what to do to create what are called tickets, perhaps also how to search for tickets and how to create an account?  If tickets are desired from the widest variety of users, this process should be somehow explained and done so in a place that those wishing to create tickets will be likely to see the explanation.

You could always start up narrator on th ewindows 10 creators version use the ctrl key + windows key + the enter key to start him up. Make sure when you go to plug in the portable version then go to start it hopefully narrator might be able to see if there is a message there stopping nvda from been installed.

 

Is it the first time you done it  did you get the same results each time? I think you did.

 

the worst you could do is use narrator to go to programs and features in control panel and see if nvda was installed. If it was uninstall it.

 

The other place to to check is %appdata% then press the enter key. When the next screen comes up locate the nvda folder and delete it then use the alt key + f4 key to close that page.

 

You will most probably have to reboot windows then go back and install nvda maybe the nvda.ini file got corrupted?

Hi all,

 

I have a really interesting problem that I haven’t been able to solve.

I’ve never had a problem installing NVDA before including the laptop that I’m having problems with. I have downloaded it a couple times to make sure the file wasn’t a problem and have used it to install onto another laptop and it worked fine.

 

I am using as a backup laptop my very inexpensive Toshiba laptop. 64 bit, With 8Gb Ram. It works fine with the portable version of NVDA.

It’s running the latest Windows 10 creators edition. When I try to install NVDA I get the music that you expect, I then get the rising tones, and then a few seconds later I get the system sound that you would normally  need to answer yes or no to, to allow a program to make changes or install. However that doesn’t appear and it is not in the system tray. There is nothing in the task manager or process areas as well.

 

Any great thoughts would be very much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Jim.

Re: [NVDA stopping Outlook 2016

Hi Cindy

 

I hear you. I do need to refer to messages and do need to switch folders and have things open in Outlook. I have said on other threads that upgrading to insider builds of Office has helped a bit with the problem. However, the problem remains a frequent one. The only cure is a reboot of my computer. I did test with narrator once and found that the problem occurs with it as well so it may be an Office problem.
