Re: Can't get speech to come out of my new headset

There is only two possible scenario that could not output a sounds or audio to your headset. First, you need to double-check the settings of the playback to ensure that your default output device is the headset you use. And, lastly, the headset you plug in is not properly inserted or, there is a problem with the headset itself.

I still struggle in Firefox to get this always to actually trigger in the first place. this is a long running problem and has been brought up before. Its not just firefox as it used to happen way back in ie8.
It seems that a new page will not always read when its loaded. I don't think anyone hase ever completely solved this.
From past experience, reading a certain number of lines would entail a completely different way of working for all types of browser, so my feeling is that just hit control when you want it to stop is fine.

Subject: [nvda] Feature Request: Configurable Automatic Say all On page Load


Under preferences/browse mode, we have an option:
Automatic Say all on page Load
I would like to see this option expanded to determine how many lines get spoken on page load. For example, if you turn it all the way off, you don't know if the page is loaded. But if you leave it on, it will read the whole page, if you let it. You could have it configured to read only the first two or three lines, so that you know something happened.
Just an idea.

That's the spelling error sound.
To turn it off, go to the NVDA menu, Preferences, Keyboard settings, and uncheck "Play sound for spelling errors while typing".

Hi,
I'm experiencing a strange buzz sound randomly since upgrading to the latest NVDA version even though my setup is no different from what I've used for a long time now with no negative issues.

On this machine (MacBookAir partitioned using Win7 via BootCamp) I use e-speak set to default language and the voice Quincey.
I just upgraded directly from NVDA 16.1 to 17.1.
Since the upgrade, I'm experiencing a strange issue that I cannot replicate but which is recurring randomly when I'm typing...
I hear a buzz sound when typing-- it seems to happen as I make a keystroke but it does not seem to be connected with typing a particular character.
--this is just a single buzz and it just happens randomly.

This never happened before on this machine and I've been using NVDA on it for many years.

Has anyone else had this experience?
Is there anything that can be done to prevent the random buzz sound?

Thanks,
Laurie M.

Re: windows ten, auto load.

Hi


Are you using a installer version? if so use the nvda key + letter N to
get into the preferences of nvda, then arrow right to general settings,
then press the enter key.

Look for the following and make sure it is checked as below.


Automatically start NVDA after I log on to Windows


If you want it also on the log on screen all so check the one under it
with the space bar, then tab to ok.


Now it will start up nvda when windows does and also do the log on
screen. This is only in the installler version not the portable.

I Gues the simple answer is that you have not checkt the checkbox start NVDA after login, you have only leleckt that nvda shoudl start on loginscreen. and that is not enough. So go throu general settings and have a look att the settings there.

Re: windows ten, auto load.

Hi,

I'm no expert, but I seem to recall something about opening Windows
Universal Access with win plus u and checking a box that says something
like Use NVDA for speech.

It's been a long time and it may no longer apply, but, if this makes any
sense at all, give it a try.

Re: Publishing an eBook with NVDA

Pranav Lal
 

Hi David,

I have published a book on smashwords some years ago. The process is accessible but you need your book formatted correctly which is where you may want to get sighted assistance to verify the formatting like uniform fonts being used etc. Yes, it may be possible to format correctly with NVDA but the process is tedious not because of NVDA but the way a screen reader works and presents information via speech. If we could get a tool like the Jaws text analyser, verifying formatting etc., would become easier. Yes, there is already a ticket about this.

StationPlaylist add-on 17.03 released

 

Hi all,

 

I’m delighted to announce the immediate release of SPL add-on 17.03. This is a localization update and resolves an issue where NVDA does not appear to do anything when switching to a time-based profile. The update is just an update check away, or you can visit the following page for more info:

https://github.com/josephsl/stationPlaylist/releases/tag/17.03

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Ok, that makes sense. So it's eitehr on or off and without a whole lot of jury rigging that is how it will stay.
Thanks for the information.

Hi David they do provide a guide to converting a Word file to an EPUB file. There is also an extremely detailed blog post that I read a few years ago. I shall try to find it for you and send you a link.
Take care

Re: Feature Request: Configurable Automatic Say all On page Load

 

Hi Rob,
Answer: no. It could be doable if NVDA keeps an eye on number of lines it
has read so far, but this isn't possible due to different website layouts,
use of screen versus simple layouts (NVDA+V) and so on.
Technical: the length of a line and number of lines in a page are arbitrary,
but for the most part, it follows maximum number of characters that can fit
on a page when viewed on a monitor. In terms of navigating a page via browse
mode, this is screen reader dependent function due to different ways of
obtaining page content (code injection and shuttling back and forth when
dealing with old Internet Explorer versions, using IAccessible2 interface
provided by Firefox, or using UI Automation routines for Microsoft Edge).
Complicating matters is how NVDA tells synthesizers to announce lines:
although NVDA may send a line of text, from the viewpoint of a synthesizer,
it is just a chunk of text to speak. Lastly, asking NVDA to keep track of
lines it has processed for speech has performance issues, as NVDA will need
to ask itself how much it has read (as it is going through text) and
different browsers expose different ways of obtaining content (although NVDA
tries to provide consistent user experience, once you take off the covers
that is browse and focus modes, you'll see a tangle of wires that is
accessibility API, web browser support modules, text infos framework (for
obtaining text for a widget), browse mode engine and what not).
Cheers,
Joseph

Publishing an eBook with NVDA

David Russell
 

Hello members,

I am about to embark on publishing an anthology using the online
publisher, Smashwords. I read a blog post where one blind author has
done this fairly successfully with minimal help according to her other
than aid with cover design issues. Is it a pretty straightforward
process to convert a doc file to that recommended by Smashwords, and
then follow their steps to complete the process?

The last thing I want is a royal mess and file loss after much hard
work. Thanks.
