Thanks

Yes, i use russian+english language pair, so they have different character sets, latin and cyrillic.For example, you can try to read any russian site, 3dnews.ru, yandex.ru and so on. Or you can  set some of russian voices as default, correctly configure auto lang switching, and then type some english text in notepad. Then, if you will move between strings of entered text using arrows, NVDA will use english voice, previously selected for english language in auto lang switching configuration dialog, but if you'll use "say all", it will read this text with russian default voice. I also need to say, that in older versions of driver(3.0.x), there was no same issue and auto lang switching works fine everywhere, including "Say all".
I have very beginner's skills in programming, but tried to investigate what happens when i use "Say all". I found patchedSpeak function in _init.py file, located in Vocalizer driver folder and added "tones.beep(100, 100)" in it, and also "import tones" at the beginning of this file. I found that in version 3.1.2 there is no call to this function when using "Say all" (no beep occurs), and in version 3.0.8, when i use "say all", a beep occurs indicating that function patchedSpeak is called. Maybe, this information will be useful for you.


Re: Looking for a NVDA Add-on to have this funcion

This is equivalent to the active frame, or something like that, of Jaws...

I think it is very usefull in certain situations...


I think we can do it in NVDA in two ways, at least...


1 - Using the OCR facility in NVDA and Windows 10, allow the creation of a frame, by positioning the mouse or entering the left upper corner and right lower corner coordinates, and then performing OCR to that location;


2 - Determining the navigation object and his location, announcing the text...

NVDA configuration for either Teraterm or SecureCRT?

Hello,

Is anyone using NVDA with either Teraterm or SecureCRT to connect to a
remote Unix/Linux system? If so, do you have a configuration that
allows cursor tracking and a working setup?

Thanks.

Re: Working with Python in NVDA

 

To be honest, trying to work with the latest version in the long run will be easier.

Right now to get my gits, I load github desktop, the only reason I have git standard as well is for the programs compiled in electron forge.

That needs git.

Nodejs has npm which is how I will install everything.

Running the extra tools installer will install chocolatey which will by default install python and visual studio tools whatever the latest version is.

Now you don't need to install that but if you ever install choco then thats going to happen by default.

Of course, a lot of my projects are java based but python is also supported.

Hi,
You will need Python 3.7. Liblouis bindings cannot be found in Python 3.8 or

NvDA side, and I resolved it in a branch I'm working on to port NVDA to
Python 3.8 and later (it actually works apart from needing to install Python
3.8 specific dependencies):
https://github.com/josephsl/nvda
The branch to check out is "walrus" (without quotes) in reference to the
walrus operator (:=), which makes certain conditional statements easier to
read and digest (walrus operator, or assignment expression, was introduced
in Python 3.8). In the coming days, I will be releasing a really bleeding
edge version of NVDA (based on latest alpha snapshot), or for that matter,
two builds:
* Python 3.7 with wxPython GUI toolkit update (version 4.1.1)
* Python 3.8 with wxPython GUI toolkit update (4.1.1)

IMPORTANT: these bleeding-edge snapshots will come from my own fork of NVDA
and thus is unsupported by NV Access i.e. these are prototypes. The first
build will not affect add-ons that much, whereas the second build will break
at least one add-on and will cause BRLTTY support features to not function.
Both builds will have GUI toolkit related bugs, the most important being
NVDA will appear to freeze when you open NVDA's about dialog and similar
dialogs.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hello Everyone,

I recently installed Python 3.9 on my Windows 10 desktop machine.
The first thing I noticed was that the statement import louis produces an
error,because the liblouis python bindings cannot be found.

At launch opens a console-like IDE. NVDA handles editing of lines nicely,
but there is no way to read previous lines except by pressing numpad 7.
There is also no wayh to

I've also used NVDA with the Bash subsystem and ssh, with the same problem.

Any comments will be welcome.

Hi,

Ah, you’ve contacted the right person…

Regarding virtual desktop switching announcement order: this is due to a discussion a few years ago between NVDA developers then and I. Because Windows may not update the desktop name in a timely manner, I instructed NVDA to wait close to half a second before announcing which virtual desktop you are on, hence the order might be a bit unintuitive. I may need to revisit this part of the add-on in the near future (currently testing more modern code in Windows 10 App Essentials that won’t show up until early next year).

Hi guys:

My last question today;

I noticed after installing “windows app essentials” plug in,

It reads what desktop I am on;

(this is great);

Upon reading the help in the addon manager regarding this plug in,

Begin quote:

• When opening, closing, or switching between virtual desktops,

NVDA will announce current desktop name

(desktop 2, for example).

End quote:

 

My question is,

Can I switch the order in which it announces?

Currently it announces the currently app in the desktop then the desktop number as I switch between them;

I’d like to be able to have it announce the desktop number prior to the active app name for that desktop.

Is this possible?

Can it be configured somewhere?

 

This is not really important as the thing does work as intended.

Because of jaws, I’m used to having the desktop number announced first as I ctrl+windows+left or right arrows to a particular desktop.

 

 

Please advise as you like.

Re: addons becoming incompatible after beta2 installed

 

Hi,

There are two ways to find out if you have Add-on Updater add-on installed:

  1. Open NVDA menu, Tools, and see if “Check for add-on updates” item is showing in Tools menu. If not, then either Add-on Updater is installed but disabled or you don’t have it.
  2. Open Add-ons Manager and see if “Add-on Updater” is listed in there.

 

To install Add-on Updater, go to community add-ons website (https://addons.nvda-project.org), select “Add-on Updater”, then choose “stable version” link to download the latest version of this add-on. After installing Add-on Updater, you may get a notification telling you that add-on updates are available.

Which add-ons are seen as incompatible with NVDA? To find out, open Add-ons Manager (NvDA menu/Tools/Manage add-ons), then select “view incompatible add-ons” and scroll through the list. The latest backwards incompatible version of NVDA is 2019.3 (due to Python 3 transition), and 2020.4 beta is not a compatibility breaking release, so the list of incompatible add-ons should not be that big.

Re: Looking for newest vocalizer driver

darkmad88@...
 

Hello!
Yes, i use russian+english language pair, so they have different character sets, latin and cyrillic.For example, you can try to read any russian site, 3dnews.ru, yandex.ru and so on. Or you can  set some of russian voices as default, correctly configure auto lang switching, and then type some english text in notepad. Then, if you will move between strings of entered text using arrows, NVDA will use english voice, previously selected for english language in auto lang switching configuration dialog, but if you'll use "say all", it will read this text with russian default voice. I also need to say, that in older versions of driver(3.0.x), there was no same issue and auto lang switching works fine everywhere, including "Say all".
I have very beginner's skills in programming, but tried to investigate what happens when i use "Say all". I found patchedSpeak function in _init.py file, located in Vocalizer driver folder and added "tones.beep(100, 100)" in it, and also "import tones" at the beginning of this file. I found that in version 3.1.2 there is no call to this function when using "Say all" (no beep occurs), and in version 3.0.8, when i use "say all", a beep occurs indicating that function patchedSpeak is called. Maybe, this information will be useful for you.


Re: addons becoming incompatible after beta2 installed

I was addressing you. I should have used your name to avoid possible confusion.

I have a possible work around. Try using the NVDA command that reads from the review cursor position to the end of the text. I have no idea if that will work around the problem but you never know. If you are using the desktop layout, its numpad plus, the second long key from the bottom on the right of the numpad.

I don't know the laptop command.

Re: addons becoming incompatible after beta2 installed

 

Hi,

Do you have Add-on Updater installed? I advise installing it as most add-ons in your list have received updates. There are exceptions such as DictationBridge, and if you do need that add-on, I advise searching for DicationBridge 1.1 beta (although I wrote that beta, I’m no longer maintaining DictationBridge in order to reduce my workload).

Cheers,

Joseph

Here is what I found whenst opening the “manage addons” dialogue;

 

The following add-ons are incompatible with NVDA version 2020.4. These add-ons can not be enabled.

Please contact the add-on author for further assistance.

Hi Mike,

Which add-ons are seen as incompatible with NVDA? To find out, open Add-ons Manager (NvDA menu/Tools/Manage add-ons), then select “view incompatible add-ons” and scroll through the list. The latest backwards incompatible version of NVDA is 2019.3 (due to Python 3 transition), and 2020.4 beta is not a compatibility breaking release, so the list of incompatible add-ons should not be that big.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi guys:

Installed nvda beta2 this morning;

When I did,

Many of my addons became incompatible, and,

I had to check a box claiming I understand this before installation;

Hence,

My question is,

How and where do I get the newer versions of the addons allegedly incompatible?

And,

Am I simply screwed if the author of the addon hasn’t updated it to the newest version of nvda?

 

 

Please advise as you like.

 

Mike M.

Well,
If you are talking to me,
It's because,
When I use read to end,
Outlook does something weird and reboots itself,
(closes and reopens);


Please advise as you like.

But your message implies that you read mail down arrowing through it. Why not use read to end?

Hahaha no worries. I wondered if it was some encoding difference between our email software or something.

Hello!


Please, note that our automatic language switching system only works between languages belonging to different groups of characters used, by instance from hebrew to english, english to chinese and so on...

To other changes, by instance from english to portuguese, it relies on the NVDA automatic language switcing method, and this one relies in the app information... Some apps that inform the screen reader to change language are Word, browsers, Acrobate and some others...




Those apps only can request a language change if the text author have correctly marked that...


If you can send us some examples where the automatic language switching does not work...

Hello!
1.  Problem exists in any app i tried: Firefox(different versions), Chromium and some other Chromium-based browsers, Akelpad, Notepad, any edit field in Windows explorer, Total Commander.
2.I have no special profile for "Say all". Even a creation of clean user config for NVDA without any other addons does not help. Also there is no difference if i use installed or portable copy of NVDA.
Thank you for so quick answer.
