Subject: [nvda] urgent - Google Drive: file download issue


Dear all,
For a model United Nation named Indian International MUN, we are
expected to prepare somewhat on the basis of specified instructions,
agenda and a study guide that they have provided.
Now, I would like to download this file, for offline access.
My file is IAEA.docx as I am a delegate of China in the International
Atomic Energy Agency.
When I click that link, both in Internet Explorer and in Mozilla
Firefox, the file is shown in a viewer, and even using Internet
Download Manager, I am unable to locate a .docx file to download by
the same name.
Thus, could someone please instruct me as to how I could go about
getting this document downloaded rather being displayed online itself
in the browser? I f someone could do the process for me themselves and
attach the file as an atttachment (should be a hopefully tiny document
file), and explain what they did to download later, that would be
extremely appreciated too.
I have not more than a few days in hand, as the competition starts on
Thursday, and I have something else this weekend too for which I am
absolutely busy, hence, it will be in school and at times when I will
not have Internet access when I will be able to best research about
IIMUN through their study guide. Will do further research online too,
of course.
I would sincerely appreciate any quick assistance you may able to provide!
Thanks.

Re: books to download from within nvda?

Yes, the Eazireader add on is actually a stand alone self voicing Daisy reader by Dolphin. recently a very basic client was added to allow content to be downloaded from limited sites. One of the issues with making a client like this is the ever changing front ends of many audio book libraries like the RNIB etc, so I suspect this part will be always going wrong!
In my view all those who make such sites should endeavour to have a common interface at least one that can be scripted.

Hi Katty,

People are more than welcome to create an add-on for this, as I believe NVDA
should be good at what it does: screen reading, not a one-stop tool for
everything (as a developer (not the lead), I think NVDA should be faithful
to its duties). I do understand that some may object to this, but I think it
is important to note that screen readers alone will not solve life's
problems - users must be proactive in seeking out information.

I will stress this at a conference soon.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi



I don't know if this is already possible with nvda or if this is a planned
feature. But I have both nvda and Supernova installed on my machine. In
supernova you have a books shelf and you can connect with online books
services (like Anderslezen.be and Passendlezen.nl from within supernova. In
this way I could download my daisy-books within supernova. Is there a
similar function in nvda or is it planned? The handy thing of this way of
downloading daisy-books is, that there's no need for unzipping folders. In
supernova the sources of online books services are limited, I e.g. only can
connect with services from the Netherlands and Belgium. In the menu there's
also a section news, podcasts, . But I can't add podcasts myself as sources
I want to follow. And sometimes there are problems with books I want to
download that Supernova don't solve within a short time period. That's why I
am wondering if nvda has similar functionalities.



Thanks for the info.

Is this in fact the program known as easyreader? This can be purchased separately and is, I think configured according to the area you live in and any legal restraints of copyright.

I've not looked at it lately though.
Strictly speaking its a client and daisy reading app.

Hello,


I've mentioned this before, but as it happened again this morning and it was really frustrating I'm mentioning it again.


Since I've gotten my Braille Display (a Focus 40 Blue), NVDA keeps freezing just after Startup. It won't talk. The Braille Display shows the last thing it said. It refuses to restart. Sometimes, I can't even shut down the computer without sighted assistance, as happened this morning. This has happened both with the NVDA snapshot I got to read Braille in a more complete UEB code, and with NVDA 2016.1. My sister saw an Error window the first time this happened but I don't know what precisely that error said. I was told to make a log entry but since NVDA isn't responding at the time I would need to make a log entry, and since the log viewer only shows me the current session, I don't see how this can be possible. (Note; that it doesn't happen every single day, but when it does happen it's almost always at startup.)


Also, I go to write this email and find Outlook has changed completely! WHAT THE HECK i JUST WANTED TO WRITE AN eMAIL WHY DID U DO THIS 2 MEEEE. Seriously, the layout is so different and I can't navigate it the way I used to with NVDA commands and i HATE IT HOW CAN i GET MY NORMAL OUTLOOK BAAAAAAAAAACK.

Hi Katty,

 

I'm not a developrer of NVDA, but based on interviews I've heard from people who are, NVDA tries to be the screen reader's screen reader.  Downloading books really doesn't have that much to do with interpreting information from the screen in speech or braille which is the strict definition of a screen reader.

 

As some have said, there could always be an add-on created to do this; however, by NVDA's definition, you would acquire adobe digital editions, kindle for pc, google play books, goread, kobo, or any sort of book reader you want.  Use that book reader software to acquire and read books.  Of course, I don't know how much dutch content they have, but this is really the direction the NVDA community would encourage you to go.

Hi Joseph

 

Thanks for this information. I don't know if you are a developer of nvda or an user like me. But if you are developer of nvda: will this feature be in future versions of nvda or not?

 

Best, Katty

Hi

 

I don't know if this is already possible with nvda or if this is a planned feature. But I have both nvda and Supernova installed on my machine. In supernova you have a books shelf and you can connect with online books services (like Anderslezen.be and Passendlezen.nl from within supernova.  In this way I could download my daisy-books within supernova. Is there a similar function in nvda or is it planned? The handy thing of this way of downloading daisy-books is, that there's no need for unzipping folders. In supernova the sources of online books services are limited, I e.g. only can connect with services from the Netherlands and Belgium.  In the menu there's also a section news, podcasts, … But I can't add podcasts myself as sources I want to follow. And sometimes there are problems with books I want to download that Supernova don't solve within a short time period. That's why I am wondering if nvda has similar functionalities.

 

Thanks for the info.

 

Best, Katty

Can't use alva bc 640 with NVDA

Ondrej Rosik
 

Hi list,
I have Alva BC 640 Braille display. When I try to use it with NVDA, I am getting error message: "can't find alva s6". I am connecting via bluetooth. I paired the device via standard bluetooth windows devicemanager. Tested on win 10 64-bit, and win 7 32-bit. I didn't installed any drivers. Any ideas, how to solve it?

Re: mixing application

I think that you can try mixxx.

Hi guys

I like music and think of becoming a DJ.

My problem is that the well known application used by sighted guys is
screen reader inaccessible.

I am particularly talking about virtual DJ.

Does anyone know of this application and has ever used it with a screen reader?

I find it difficult to use with nvda and jaws.

Do you know of any application I can use that is doing nearly the same
thing as virtual DJ?

Come to my rescue.

Wally




Re: adobe audition and NVDA

Ondrej Rosik
 

Hi,
you can try reaper, I think that it is a good replacement. But It depends on what would you like to do. for example I use old cool edit 2.1 which is fine for me, you can also try audacity, and there is an addon for goldwave.

Does anyone know if Adobe audition works with NVDA out of the box, or, do I need an add-on for it?

Hi, what is the most accessible way to configure NVDA for IRC? What clients are most accessible? Thanks.
