John J. Boyer
 

Hello,

I have Windows 10 Pro. If I set up two non-adminsistative users, usera and userb can I use NVDA with both? They may
have different configurations.

Thanks,
John

Somebody I know asked me the definition of 'soon'.
I told them this was invented by Clive Sinclair in the 80s, and meant when its finally working right probably.

Re: Windows Key commands not working?

Laurie Mehta
 

Is there a problem no matter which Windows key you use?
What I mean is-- if you use the Windows key on the left side of the space bar (along with the letter to make the keyboard command) does the problem happen?
Likewise, if you use the Windows key on the right side of the space bar to make the keyboard commands, is the problem happening?
I realize that using one or the other Windows key will be awkward along with certain letters but I'm asking because I've seen laptops with abbreviated keyboards where the key on one side or the other (of the keyboard) seems to be mapped strangely and will not perform as expected.

Hello,I just got
a computer and the windows key commands do not work. When I
press windows+m or windows+d all I hear is the letter being
said and not the command being executed. I can press the
Windows key and the start menu opens and when I go into
input help and press windows+d I hear "windows+d",
but the command does not pass through to the
computer.Does anyone know what may be happening?
There are some access restrictions on the computer, but I am
not aware of any access restriction that would restrict the
windows key commands not working.I am guessing
that the commands are being stopped somewhere in the event
tree because otherwise NVDA would not say windows+d. Does
anyone know of what may be causing this?Thank

Hello there,


I'm a staunch epub reader, so you got to the right place.


You can definitely read epub ebooks with Adobe Digital Editions, which is free, and can be downloaded from Adobe's website (or from my Dropbox, which is probaly easier - I'll pass the link at the end of this message).


Firefox has an add-on. I think it's called epub reader, but I don't know whetehr it was updated for more recent Windows versions. I haven't used it for years.


If you want an excellent, but not free app, I'd advise you to investigate Qread at the following link:


https://q-continuum.net/qread/


I also read epub ebooks on my android smartphone. There are a number of more or less accessible apps for that, which I'll be happy to discuss with you off-list, if you're interested.


Here's the link to downloade Adobe Digital Editions from my Dropbox. Unfortunately I only have version 3.0, but it's quite enough. If you decide to install this version, it'll prompt you to upgrade later.

May I know whether there’s a way in which to read epub material.

I read a little about the format and have heard that it is somewhat accessible.

May I ask anyone of you who ever read an epub-formatted book to elaborate further about the format?

I hear people who read books in that format saying that one can only read epub books through google chrome, because google has what they call readium reader and that reader can read the books in the format.

Are you aware of that and how accessible is that with a screen reader like jaws or nvda?

Does it mean that internet/firefox browser cannot handle epub material?

What other application does one use to read books in the epub format?

Your assistance in this regard is appreciated in advance.

Re: epub format

Travis Siegel <tsiegel@...>
 

As I've posted before (in several places) non-drm epub books are simply html files with other files included to make navigating the books easier.  You can simply rename the epub to .zip, extract it, and read it with the web browser of your choice, no special software required.

Doing it this way won't give you the navigation features, (table of contents, previous/next, and so on), but it's a quick and simple way to read the books without having to install extra software for the job.

Re: working with tables in microsoft word

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi


Not sure if this will work in word but know it works in excel.  What is written is from Quenton.


below is the message.


There isn't a direct command, but a workaround is:
1. Press SHIFT+SPACEBAR to select the row
2. Press control+c to copy it to the clipboard
3. Press NVDA+c to read the clipboard
This will read the whole row as one block of text.  Note that it will overwrite anything you already had on the clipboard.  It also reads the values of cells, not formulas.  If you want formulas read, press control+` (control+grav) to toggle between showing values and formulas before copying the row.
Similarly, if you want to read the column, press control+spacebar instead of shift+spacebar at step 1.

Enes,

           Yes, but I was sticking with NVDA terminology.  Browse versus focus modes.   JAWS uses Browse versus Forms modes.  Focus/Forms mode is where you can do data entry and/or editing in the cell/edit box/other object that accepts text input that you find yourself in.

Hello, everyone.



I have just joined the NVDA e-mail list, and am getting introduced to NVDA.



Actually, I use Jaws as my main screen reader, and simply want to have NVDA
on board as a back up screen reader should Jaws fail, or be unusuable for
certain applications.



Anyway, I have been told that alternative voices are available for NVDA. …
Specifically, I have been told that the vocalizer female voice (similar to
the one the iPhone uses), and Eloquence are available.



Can someone tell me where to find these voices?



Also, are they free, or must they be purchased?



Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

Re: Other NVDA Voices?

Jonathan:

 

Thanks for the codefactory info about the vocalizer and eloquence voices.

 

I checked on the web page you sent, and it says the price for the addd-on is 59 euros.

 

Siri tells me that this converts to $66.10.

 

So, what I now have to decide is whether the purchase would be worthwhile for me.

 

As of now, my intent is still to use NVDA as a backup, since my current Jaws Sma covers me through Jaws 20, but there is always room to re-think this.

 

Thanks very much for the help.

Re: Other NVDA Voices?

If you use the add on for Eloquence, it is poor quality because it has a lot of artifacts. 
 
Code factory has a SAPI5 version of Eloquence that works well.  Both are available as demos so you can try them.  The add on has eloquence and another set of voices.  I'm not sure if those are the other ones you asked about.  I assume you can get the other voices separately but I don't use them and I haven't paid much attention to them.
