Well, Thanks be to both who have tried to help.  I have now updated my NVDA and there is a "manage add-ons" in the tools menu.  And, for now, I'm on my way.
 
Thanks.

Hi


The package is in a zip format it is about 300 meg or so for the whole package.  There is a run time file you need to click on and after that it is the tts voices need to be installed.

The link to the drop boxs account is https://www.dropbox.com/s/zthyyh9kef7repx/Speech%20Platform%2011%20engine%20and%20voices.zip?dl=0


I also have the speech hub package but the add on needs to be installed after speech hub has been installed.


the add on can be found under the following section in windows c: drive then program files x86 then speech hub then nvda add on then just do the usual to install it the add on i mean.


the drop box link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/zzgos2mu38ss3i1/SpeechHubInstall.exe?dl=0

Re: Problems with IE - nothing speaks

Never delete files when you don't know what they do.  Back them up and then delete them from their original location, making sure you know, making a note if necessary, what folder it is in.  It sounds to me as though this file is a part of NVDA.  You may have to reinstall NVDA to get the file gback.

Re: Customizing Announcement of Command Keys

Hello,

Regarding bhavyashaa's comment dated on 2 Mar below, I agree totally. If NVDA just got rid of the arrow keys being announced, it would be OK to hear the other command keys. I am a trainer, and for new users, it is important for them to hear the other keys, even the most basic ones like enter, escape and alt tab. But having to listen to the arrow keys constantly really gets in the way. If this simple fix could be made in the next version of NVDA, it would really help, especially for new users and those who train them.

Hello Quentin!

Sorry! The previous message have gone out without authorization! Smile!

Please, see:
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6553

namely:

ruifontes commented on 15 Nov 2016
A compromise solution:
1 - Considere Enter, and accents like accut accent, grave accent, tilde and carete, as a character;
2 - Separate arrows from command keys.
That way will have three group of keys;
1 - Typeable characters including Enter and accents;
2 - Arrow keys;
3 - All other keys;


bhavyashah commented on 2 Mar
Hi,
Are there any users who would like to retain announcement of arrow keys via the Speak command keys option? If absolutely none, removing arrow keys as a whole from being reported under all settings should be considered, because it is unlikely and unproductive for anyone to enable arrow keys while working, or even creating tutorial content for beginners, or in any scenario I can currently visualize.
Also, adding only Enter to the characters spoken even with the afore mentioned setting off would be of significant help to beginners, as many NVDA users and trainers have reported in the past, and shouldn't have any counter-productive consequences in the UX of other users.
However, Enter in comjunction with other keys, in the form of key commands, shouldn't be verbalized.
The above two cases have been pretty much unanimously agreed as expressed in several comments and through various tickets in the past, and thus I have specifically requested their implementation.
With the arrow keys eliminated and the Enter key spoken, we may have a clearer picture of the user demand going forward.
Thanks.


Do we need some more issues open to this question?
If you see, my proposal and bhavyashah proposal are identical, with the inclusion of accents in the typeable characters, as they really are.

Rui

Clipspeak will read the following commands:

CTRL+A: Select all
CTRL+Z: Undo
CTRL+Y: Redo
CTRL+X: Cut
CTRL+C: Copy
CTRL+V: Paste

Is that what you are after?
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/clipspeak.en.html


The idea of a more customisable "speak command keys" comes up from time to
time, but the problem is everyone wants different things. My idea would
probably be to have a simple set of options, say checkboxes for groups of
keys like:
- function keys
- arrow keys
- modifier keys


etc.


If anyone has a really clear and widely useful variant on that they'd really
like to see, do feel free to write it up on GitHub:

Re: vocalizer voices (got it partly figured out)

Lino Morales
 

I can't stand ESpeak either Travis, but I know the page you are talking about. Yes poorly designed.

On 9/19/2017 3:49 PM, Travis Siegel wrote:
I have to say, the web page where the nvda plugin is up for download is terrible.  According to the site (and I quote).

Once the Add-on is installed along with NVDA, you can select either Code Factory Eloquence or Code Factory Vocalizer in the NVDA Synthesizer dialog and then select the preferred language in the NVDA Voice dialog.


Yeah, only this doesn't work for vocalizer voices.  It works just fine for eloquence voice (which btw, I can't stand), but apparently, for vocalizer voices, you need to go to another page (not linked to anywhere on the NVDA plugins page), and download the voices you want to use.  This is pretty poor page design, especially since there is no mention anywhere on the page that voices need to be downloaded.

But, just for reference, downloading the voices I wanted didn't change my circle of errors, I'm still getting the thanks for using, and telling me that pressing ok will start the install process, (which btw doesn't).  Installing the samantha voice separately also doesn't solve my problem, I can select vocolizer in the code factory menu, but when going to synthesizer and selecting vocalizer is how I get into that nice endless error circle, so there is definitely still work that needs done on these voices.  I'd be demanding my money back with no doubt if I'd had this experience after paying for these things.  The seven day trial is nice, but it isn't of any use to me, because nothing here is working, so I'm just going to write it all off as a bad idea and go back to being content with my espeak ivan 3 voice.

I don't know why he is doing it and we have no basis to assume anything.  I doubt it is intentional rudeness.  I would say that people should simply not comment on any post by Mr. Chikodinaka Nickarandidum Oguledo unless he asks a new and useful question.  Repetitive questions, the same question four times in a month or even twice in a month or six months, should simply be ignored. 
 
It is not useful to have a debate on list about Chikodinaka Nickarandidum Oguledo or his posts.  If such unproductive debates continue, I shall lock all threads where such debates begin.   
 
If Mr. Chikodinaka Nickarandidum Oguledo is too outrageous, I shall moderate him.  Moderation means that I shall see every post from him and have to approve each post before it reaches the list.  If I do that, I shall simply not approve repetitive questions nor questions that in any way, promote sites where illegal activity occurs.  . 
 
I'm explaining all this because Mr. Chikodinaka Nickarandidum Oguledo sent a post yesterday in which he seemed to indicate that he didn't know what being moderated means and because there may be other list members who don't know. 
 
I am not the list owner and if he wishes to deal with this matter differently, that is what he will do as list owner.  I've stated what I will do unless the owner wishes something different to be done.
 
Also, on further consideration, I've changed my mind about how long moderation will last.  It will last at least two months and whether it is lifted will depend on the kinds of posts Mr. Chikodinaka Nickarandidum Oguledo  sends for approval.

I second what Lino said. Facebook mobile is about as simple as it can possibly get. I don't know if it is my computer or what, but, the desktop version of Facebook is uber slow on my machine.

Is there a blind friendly client for any of the so called social media sites that are easy to use?
I don't want them to rule my life, but of late so much information I'm expected to know about is on Twitter or Facebook its beginning to look like I'll have to bite the bullet again. Maybe I can employ a young person to do it for me!

hi,

How do you guys use facebook with nvda? In particular, searching group posts and viewing the results, but most actions seem laggy. Also, nvda randomly jumps around on the page.

Citrix accessibility - could start cooperations #NVAccess

adriani.botez@...
 

Dear all,

here is a very comprehensive statement of Citrix on accessibility

https://www.citrix.com/content/dam/citrix/en_us/documents/support/using-common-accessibility-and-adaptability-software-with-citrix-xenapp.pdf

I wonder why NVDA is not being covered at all. Citrix commited itself to accessibility during this year and explained that through their Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) for every product. But if you read the accessibility note above, it is far to complicated for a simple user. Especially when a company has 50 servers or more like in a bank. Data security will become more and more important. Every company will adapt their server structures and will not work on just one server. it will get more complicated for us screen reader users to convince them to install everything on every server. This cannot be a good solution in the long run.

In my view, NV Access should start cooperating with them. Or at least try to simplify the procedures.

What is your opinion folks?


Cheers
