NVDA problem with hashtag symbol

Paolo Leva
 

The Acapela TTS allows usage of special codes to get the TTS to laugh, cry, cough and so on. To get the desired sound you need to type for instance #LAUGH01#, #CRY01#, #COUGH01# and so on.

However NVDA seems to always process the # symbol even when you select to let it pass through to the TTS, so there seems to be no way to let these sounds work when using the Acapela TTS with NVDA, as NVDA always read like "pound sign laugh 0 1 pound sign"

I do not know whether this issue can be solved by configuration or needs some fix into the code, is anyone able to shed some light on it?

Thanks in advance!

Hi don


Were you able to get around in the program or did you just tab to see the other options that it spoke out.

Were you able to see the other settings etc in the program or are you just using it to scan?

if you are interested i am in the process of putting together a basic tutorial on how to navigate the program etc.
I might even do a audio tutorial as well.

It will at least give people a idea of how to navigate the program and also use it.

it will be finished in the next day or so if you are interested and also later on posted to my website.

Re: Toast notification in portable version of nvda?

Hi, Quentin,

 

I wondered what a toast notification was. Thanks for the explanation.

A toast notification is a pop up message that appears briefly.  Examples include when you connect headphones, insert a CD or save a screenshot.

 

In Windows 10 those messages appear and NVDA usually reads them before they disappear.  If you press WINDOWS+A it opens the action centre where you can see those messages again.

 

Regards

 

Quentin.

Re: how to roll back today's next version?

Quentin Christensen
 

Brian,

You can go back to the previous build of Windows 10 - I haven't noticed whether that option times out or how long it takes, but it's still there in settings - update - recovery.  The original poster was asking about reverting to an earlier build of NVDA as the poster thought NVDA was causing problems with edge (all reports are the issues are with the latest version of Edge).

Regards

Quentin.

The following is a serious question, "Do these builds not contain the 'Go back to an earlier build' option in the Recovery pane of the Update and Security Settings?

This is a very handy feature that's been in all the stable builds and allows you to roll back to the build you just upgraded from if you do so within 10 days of the upgrade.  After that the button for doing so, which reads, "Get Started," is stippled out and the message above it reads, "This option is no longer available because your PC was upgraded more than 10 days ago."

Re: how to roll back today's next version?

 

Hi,

The problem described has more to do with Edge in build 15002, as the same next snapshot allows one to read content in Edge in build 14986.

Cheers,

Joseph

There isn't an inbuilt rollback, but you can download an older next build from http://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/snapshots/ and run it and it should pickup your installed settings.

 

Re Edge, I thought that was caused by the newest version of Edge in the latest insider build moreso than NVDA - did this new version of Edge work with an older Next build?

Re: how to roll back today's next version?

 

Hi,

At least two other Insiders have confirmed this problem, related to certain things not working as expected in either Edge, NVDA or both:

http://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6712

And

http://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/6713

The issue described does not occur in build 14986.

I’m keeping a very close eye on this issue because it prevents Windows Insiders from testing Edge support improvements in NVDA 2017.1 snapshots.

Cheers,

Joseph
