Re: ot: webvisum and firefox53

Hwello all,

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could send me a portable version of FireFox 52 through Dropbox or some other means. I would also be grateful for a version of Webvisum which works with it.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Brian,

Sorry, I didn't notice your request from a few days ago if it did make it
through here.

Anyway, here are our issues: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues -
there is a search edit on that page you can type your query in to see if
there's an existing issue (open or closed, though note it will only show
open issues at first by default) which deals with what you are looking for.

To post a new issue, there should be a "new issue" button on most pages.
Activating that will take you here:
https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new with the main components being
a title edit and a "leave a comment" edit where you can describe your issue
in detail.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi



The Kaleidoscope Training Unit have a problem, again.



We are running WINDOWS 10, not the latest release, with office 2016 and NVDA
2017.1.



We suddenly experience a problem with Excel as well as when we use the start
menu. In Excel there is no speech response when you enter from cell to cell
or even when you navigate by using the arrows. When on the start menu the
only response is "unknown". In Excel, for example when you press ALT,P,S,P
"unknown" is all you hear.



Strangely, it only happen on certain of our desktop computers. Might I add,
we have uninstalled NVDA 2017.1 and reverted back to NVDA 2016.4.



We made a screenshot of NVDA's Log Viewer which I am going to attach. The
attachment name is nvda error.PNG.



Please, if someone can help it would be be appreciated very much.

Re: Multi-User-Dungeons and NVDA

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

Nothing to optimize. NVDA reads the text coming across the screen just fine. If you don't want to see everything, then use a client that has gag capabilities, then you can repress certain text strings, so you don't see them. Most muds also have various settings you can use to cut down on the amount of spam you receive, especially during battle. Nothing special needed to mud using NVDA, it works just fine.

Re: Curious... best version of Windows 10 to use with NVDA

You don't have to presume.  It would serve the person better to answer both questions or the one that is more likely the intended meaning.  I consider the interpretation I raised to be the more likely meaning.  Others may consider the other to be.  But based on the answers, no one answering appears to have considered that something else might be meant or if they did, they appear to have considered unlikely and not answered in that way.  Thus my comments, intended to stir other answers.  If the person is getting mail as a digest or is busy or can't look at mail for a day or more after asking the question, wouldn't it serve the person to answer both questions or at least have some people answer one interpretation and some the other?  Thus my earlier comments.

Yes, because some presumption about intended meaning is necessary to answer any number of ambiguous questions.  If that's not what the original questioner meant then I am sure that she will clarify.

The only other choices are to ignore the question entirely or answer the question with another question, neither of which is generally considered socially acceptable. Meta-analysis of the questioner's intent and the responders' responses is particularly unhelpful.

When it comes right down to it, based on the way Microsoft is updating Windows 10 over time and that you will eventually be on the latest version unless Windows Update is broken, my response is always get the latest version of Windows 10.  At a minimum you'll be experiencing the same issues as everyone else.

Same for NVDA - the latest stable release.

Hi Jessica,  You can get karabiner for your mac and use it to configure the capslock key for fusion.

You can also use karabiner to restore your number pad so that fn + M becomes an insert key.  Of course, this adds numerous other benefits if you can make your fingers get used to the off kilter arrangement of the keys.

Hope this helps,

OCR isn't necessary if the person who makes the pdf file puts text into
the pdf. Only if the person who prepars the pdf puts images of text in
it does OCR need to be run on the pdf file. Most pdf files are created
with plain text, and are therefore readable by screen readers. It's
only those folks who use screen shots, or graphical representations of
text that can't be read directly by screen readers. If you use the
control-p command, and tell windows to print to a pdf, as long as you're
printing text, it will produce a pdf file that is readable by anyone
using a screen reader. If you're using a program that represents text
as images (such as most desktop publishing programs), then you will get
a graphic picture of the text, and in that case, OCR will be necessary
to read the text.

Personally, I'd use a paid for OCR for books, no matter which format you are
displaying it as, as lots of errors can occur and you do need to be able to
edit the final result.. in my experience a lot, depending on how bad the
printing is how the book binding affects the scan. Its not a precise art,
though a friend actually seems to get better results on his smart phone with
knfb reader than I can with Adbbey or any other one I've tried using a
scanner.

If I scanned a book or magazine page into a PDF file
using a basic scanner, do I need a professional OCR
program to extract the text?

NVDA does seem to have its own decoding system for
PDF files, but I think it depends how the document
was scanned or prepared.

Does anyone know?

weird issue with qCast and OPML file

Hi,

I’m sorry if this is off topic, but I didn’t know where else to write to.

I am using NVDA 2017.1, the latest version of Windows, and qCast latest version

 

I have an OPML file, which I imported. It was made by icatcher, on my iPhone.

The issue is that podcasts don’t show correct episodes.

For example, a news podcast may show episodes from the Germanpod 101 feed.

What do I do?
