Re: about pdf files

Quentin Christensen
 

Note that many of the commercial OCR programs (Omnipage, Abbyy etc) have features that will automatically convert whole PDF files, so they may be a better solution if you regularly have inaccessible PDFs you need to convert (and you can't get the creators to make them accessible).

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: about nvda and triggers

Quentin Christensen
 

Say all does have its own profile now, so yes, you could edit just it, to not announce any of the elements.  To do that, open the configuration dialog and manually load the "Say all" profile, edit it as desired and save it before returning to your normal profile.

Kind regards

Quentin.

I'd have to look at the create profile dialog again to see just how it is set up.  Be sure it is set to manual and then, probably if you tab once more, you will be in something, I thing a combo box, where you set a trigger.  You want it to only be triggered when you use read to end.  Find that item, whatever it is exactly called.  Then do the rest of the setup for the profile.

hi gene.
thanks so much for your help..
i did it, but now, even i dont hear links headings etc when i use the
arrow keys.
i wish that hear the elements but only when i use shortcut keys like k
and h and also when i navigate by arrow keys.
i only want to dont hear it in say all.
what should i do?

Hi


I think the easiest way is to set up a profile with the reporting of
those things turned off. Where they need to be turned off is under the
document formatting section. But do not go there first it will need to
be done in the profile.


To set up a profile where you can do this and automatically have it done
you need to do the following.


Go into your browser whether it be mozilla fire fox etc. make sure it is
in focus.


Next Press the nvda key + ctrl key + the letter P


When the profile manager opens next tab to new it is a button press the
space bar on it. give it a name like mozilla fire fox with out
formatting then tab it will say some thing manual activation i could
have to check. Do not touch this one but arrow down to current
application it will say mozilla fire fox. Then tab down to the ok button
then press the enter key.


Next bring up document formatting with the ctrl key + nvda key + the
letter D.


Tab down to where it says reporting of headings list etc and uncheck
those boxes then tab to the ok button then press the enter key.


You might have to go back into your pro file or hopefully it is still in
focus locate the profile you set up then tab to the close button then
press the enter key.


If set correctly you should not hear link, heading list etc.


When you do it make sure you are in mozilla fire fox then bring up the
profile do your changes in document formatting then after done when back
in the pro file tab to close just as mentioned.

I am pretty sure you will get the idea and other profiles can be set up
for other applications.


I find doing for a current application is far easier for a lot of people.


Gene nz


I am pretty sure i gave the right directions.

i wish that when i use say all in firefox or any browser, nvda does
not announce link, heading table list and anything else.
i wish that only hear the document rather than link heading and all
elements.
you told me i should use trigger for this purpose.
how should i activate and use triggers for my goal?
i waite for your help, God bless you and i pray for you sincerely.

Hi all!

I have a nice Casio keyboard and it’s got a USB port on it. Never seen one like it. I’d love to start creating some music so I was looking at sequencer software. I found a list of free and open source programs and wondered if anybody had any recommendations. I can’t afford to buy anything right now so I’m hoping one of these programs will provide what I need. The list this site gives begins with the one they recommend most highly. I’ve not heard of any of them. There’s LMMS, Hydrogen, temper and DarkWave Studio. Is anyone familiar with any of these or perhaps other programs that do a good job and, of course, will work with NVDA? Any feedback I receive will be appreciated. Thanks so much.

Re: Laptop Layout issue

First thing to do is turn on keyboard help - think it's also just NVDA + number row 1 - to make sure that when you enter the other keystroke that the correct one is being passed/recognised, etc.?

Re: Aria-live and interactive fiction

 

Not sure but parchment seems to be quite old now, it works well enough especially for complex games for me if you don't use a glulx zcode or tads interpreter offline which I do sometimes do this works really well.

On 7/04/2017 7:50 p.m., Sukil Etxenike via Groups.Io wrote:
Hi,

Lately I've been testing online interactive fiction interpreters. All these implement aria (precisely,aria-live="polite", aria-atomic="false", aria-relevant="additions"). The problem is that with some specific games (like Ad Verbum) NVDA fails to output anything automatically. Link to test this (with Parchment):

adverbum - Parchment <http://iplayif.com/?story=http://ifarchive.org/if-archive/games/zcode/adverbum.z5>



Anyone can clarify why this happens? Note that this is not specific to this game, but this only happens in Parchment (see <http://www.eblong.com/zarf/glulx/quixe/quixe/play-remote.html?story=stories/Advent.ulx.js>). That works properly...

Even more weirdness: Andrew Plotkin uses an older version of Parchment with no ARIA, and it works surprisingly well (compare <http://eblong.com/zarf/zweb/tangle/> and <http://iplayif.com/?story=http://eblong.com/zarf/ftp/Tangle.z5>.

Any thoughts?

Thanks very much,


Sukil

Re: Replying to the list using the web site

I would suggest trying a different e-mail program.  I don't know what is causing the problem and I'm not assuming it is Thunderbird but you might save yourself a lot of time and trouble if a different program doesn't have this problem.

Re: Replying to the list using the web site

Gene
 

I finally got it to work.  I switched to forms mode and pressed the space bar on the reply to group button.  I won't experiment more on list because I don't want to have people receive messages of me experimenting with the interface.  It's nice to have the option on the rare occasions when I might want it.  But I'll note that the reason the message has so many mistakes is because you can't read it and edit it when browse mode is off.  You can read it in browse mode but not edit it.  Just one more reason people wouldn't use the web interface.  In case this is useful to anyone, I also wasn't able to see the field for replying when using Chrome.  I was able to see it in firefox while browse mode is off.

Re: QCast and NVDA

David Griffith
 

Not sure why this should be off list but QCast is working fine here on Windows 10. I am not sure why this should be an issue.

I can only suggest

  1. Compete uninstall and re-install.
  2. If that does not work download the portable version of the program from the website and try just running that as a standalone exe file rather than using an installed version.
