Yes I did post this on here about a week back actually. the snag is they are overwritten when you update the version of nvda. I seem to recall an add on that allowed one to alter them though.

Ah, Found them. They're inside the folder called waves, inside the NVDA folder in program files.
For 64 bit operating systems:
C:\Program Files (x86)\NVDA\waves
For 32-bit operating systems:
C:\Program Files\NVDA\waves
There are 8 wav files inside, so nothing is hidden inside of another container.

This perhaps may be a stupid question, and no, I am not thinking of modifying them in any way, but more am just curious as a FYI purpose.
 
Where are the wave files used by NVDA for the things like the ascending tone when you start NVDA, and the descending tone when you quit NVDA, and such?

I think you are going way ahead of what is possible at the moment, unless you know Jaws does it already.
 Best place for this is on github. However, I fancy with Jamie going and getting others up to speed on coding, I'd suggest not being too impatient.

I agree, and a way to fill out forms should those be an image as well, and a way to sign with your finger on the track pad as most of the stuff I deal with you must.

Anything out there that will do this on windows?

It really needs to be a program that can display it virtually and run ocr on that.

I have a suggestion for NVDA OCR. I would like to be able to go into
this pc or the file explorer, point to a pdf, or image file, hit
applications key and arrow to recognise with NVDA, hit enter, and then
NVDA will OCR the file itself and present the result in the browse mode
buffer. This would make reading inaccessible pdf files easier.


thanks

Re: NVDA or Firefox issue

I think maybe you just have too many tabs open. One assumes if focus lags and that tab comes to the fore for whatever reason, it could be that you interact with it, rather than the other one Personally any more than five open gives me a headache. I tend to just use bookmarks and let the page load if I'm not interested in itall the time. to me Tabs are for things you want to keep an eye on so to speak.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA or Firefox issue

I read a couple of threads on here about issues with Firefox and I wonder if anybody has any idea what might be going on with my NVDA / Firefox situation.

My Firefox updated to 55.0.3 (32-bit) yesterday, and I updated to NVDA 17.3 earlier this week. The problem began occuring prior to this, maybe two months ago, however, so it's not directly caused by either upgrade.

I use gmail in its basic view setting, and most of the time it works perfectly. But occasionaly it's started, when I hit enter to open a message, it throws me out into a tab about 8 tabs further away. The tab it moves me to is for a Masters degree program that I want to apply for next year, so I can't figure out any connection between my gmail tab and that one! The tab in question is http://www.swansea.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught/applyingforamastersdegree/

It is always that tab, and it doesn't matter if I've opened other tabs between gmail and that tab, like tonight I've got an additional two Blind Mice Mega Mall tabs open ... it's always dropping me into the Masters info tab.

I also can't figure out why it's only occasional emails that do this. Most open fine when I hit enter, and I stay on the email page, from where I press the number 2 a couple of times to navigate down to the message Heading 2, but the times it throws me out of the tab there aren't any level 2 headings on that page!

Would love any suggestions if anybody has experienced anything similar. I do currently have 36 tabs open in Firefox,if that has any bearing on the matter.

Thanks,

Giles


Re: NVDA or Firefox issue

 

hello.
i could not completely understand the problem.
but if some tabs open for you unwantedly, maybe its an unwanted
toolbar or addware, that maybe is harmful for your system.
i recommend that set firefox to the its default settings, check your
firewall and see if one unwanted software is connected to the internet
and block it.
then again make and use your desire settings in your firefox.
please read this article about maintaining privacy and security of
browsers and share it with other people.

Hi,

Do you have the add-on installed? Please ensure that you have RC1 installed. If you do, look under the tools menu of NVDA. You will find a menu that allows you to install dictationBridge commands. Invoke the option to install the commands for Microsoft speech-recognition. Follow the prompts and you should be good to go.

Bobby,

           Not knowing exactly what it is you typically do makes answering your question a bit difficult.

           I suggest you do three separate web searches, depending on whether you prefer the command line (option 1) or a GUI (options 2 & 3)
  1. Robocopy - command line utility that's been around forever and allows all sorts of copying 
  2. Robocopy GUI - the RoboCopy command has been put into a GUI wrapper
  3. RichCopy, see this article:  https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2009.04.utilityspotlight  sort of a "RoboCopy GUI on steroids"
None of these cost a thing.

Hi Arlene

It depends how you have configured IE.  The  default search engine I’m describing in my post is what is used whenever yu search using the address bar.  In IE you configure this in the Manage add-ons entry of the tools menu, in Edge you do it as I described.  In all browsers, you can also specify google.com as your home page and use the google search engine from there.   The more modern browsers like Chrome, Firefox and Edge have introduced Start-up pages as well as having the home page and address bar.  The start-up pages are displayed when you first open the browser, the home pages are displayed whenever you press alt+home  and the address bar is accessed using alt+d for entering URL’s or searches.  I think it is important to understand the distinction between them to enable you to utilise the available features when configuring your browsers of choice.     

 

Cheers

Hi Scot

The instructions you have given will open a page when you first open Edge rather than set the default search engine.  I have included what I sent to Anthony to do this.

 

Anthony

This is not difficult to do but there are quite a few steps to doing it and the buttons you want are quite a long way down the settings pages, so be prepared to do a lot of tabbing.

 

  1. Open the Edge browser
  2. Press alt+x
  3. Press up arrow once and you should land on ‘Settings’, press enter
  4. Press tab repeatedly until you find ‘View Advanced Settings’ button, then press enter
  5. Press tab repeatedly until you find ‘Change search Engine’ button, then press enter
  6. Use tab key to find list of available engines, then use up/down arrows to navigate list
  7. Select the engine you want, press tab once and press enter on the ‘set as default’ button         
  8. Press tab and find the ‘Back’ button then press enter
  9. Use tab and  find the ‘Back’ button on the next screenand press enter
  10. You should now be back on the ‘View Advanced Settings’ button, press escape button (top left of your keyboard)
  11. You should now be on the ‘Settings and More’ button, press tab and you will return to the web page you were viewing before you edited Settings

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi.

 

I will try to help you.

I don’t know all there is to know so I had to try this one for myself to make sure it worked.

Open Microsoft edge.

From the address bar which you can get to by pressing control d, tab until you here settings and more and press space to enter that option.
Then tab again until you get to another icon called settings and hit spacebar again.

Tab until you hear open Microsoft edge with.

There are three options there, but the one you want is a specific page.

Arrow down until you hear nvda say a specific page then tab and type in the url of the site you want.

Then tab to save.

That should be it.

Let me know how that works and good luck.

Hi, Scott,

 

Thanks for the tip on creating a desktop shortcut for microsoft edge. I tried doing it the way I was used to doing it in other programs by typing "edge" in the start search box and using the applications key but that didn't work. Thanks again for this tip.

Hi Anthony.

 

1: press windows key and r for the run dialogue

2: Type shell:appsfolder and hit enter

3: When the list of programs pops up use first letter navigation letter m until you hear Microsoft edge.

4: Hit the context menu key or shift f 10.

5: Arrow until you find create shortcut and hit enter.

6: You will be told that the shortcut can not be created here and it will ask you if you want to place it on the desktop instead.

7: Tab to the yes button and hit enter.

And there you go.

Note: you can name the newly created icon anything you want.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day

Ah, Found them. They're inside the folder called waves, inside the NVDA folder in program files.

For 32-bit operating systems:
C:\Program Files\NVDA\waves
There are 8 wav files inside, so nothing is hidden inside of another container.

Re: how to set edge brouser to google

Hi Arlene

It depends how you have configured IE.  The  default search engine I’m describing in my post is what is used whenever yu search using the address bar.  In IE you configure this in the Manage add-ons entry of the tools menu, in Edge you do it as I described.  In all browsers, you can also specify google.com as your home page and use the google search engine from there.   The more modern browsers like Chrome, Firefox and Edge have introduced Start-up pages as well as having the home page and address bar.  The start-up pages are displayed when you first open the browser, the home pages are displayed whenever you press alt+home  and the address bar is accessed using alt+d for entering URL’s or searches.  I think it is important to understand the distinction between them to enable you to utilise the available features when configuring your browsers of choice.     

 

Cheers

Chris

Is this is what you have to do when you use Google or any other search engine if you are on Edge? Or can you just do it like you would in 7 just go to IE and type in your search?

Re: NVDA SOUNDS

 

Downloading from blindhelp.net is illegal not to mention unethical,

Atleast in my opinion

Therefore, i would advice people not to have anything with that website,

Besides, downloading illegal software could lead to serious implications like inviting malware, viruses and it's like,

So be safe and stay away from such websites
