Hi Quentin,
Could you elaborate a bit on the dark mode you were talking about?
Does it permit complete dimming of the screen?
Albert,
Thanks for the instructions - one thing I learnt was that Ctrl + Space
is used to unselected something. Previously, I always used to create a
random folder and then delete it to have focus on nothing, to be able
to get to the New submenu on the Desktop.
Thanks.

Hi, Quentin,

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt F-4 and
hit enter. I also like the windows X, u and u keystroke too. It's similar to
how you'd shut down in windows XP.

Hi Steve,

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start
menu is now three columns wide. The left column has user account / file
explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps
(first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full
apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles. You can
still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context
menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd
have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.

If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U
again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power
button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just
never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due
to data loss :)

There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now
which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.

Quentin.

Hi, I assume folk are aware of this strange behaviour. Powershell is
not something I use a lot, basically a glorified command prompt, but
the 32 bit version has served me well on all machines before, and
indeed works fine in windows 10, but..
I did last night run the 64 bit version and found the following with
nvda. Typing into the command line is silent, but cursoring and
deleting works
Running a command etc, results in a mixed spoken output of normal text
output and single letters, ie spelled out speech, rather than that
part of the output.
Anyone know what causes this weird effect?
Its not fixed in the next branch cos I tried it last night.

Hi, Quentin,

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt F-4 and hit enter. I also like the windows X, u and u keystroke too. It's similar to how you'd shut down in windows XP.

Hi Steve,

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start menu is now three columns wide.  The left column has user account / file explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps (first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles.  You can still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.

If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due to data loss :)

There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.

Regards

Quentin.

2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd have started moving down the middle app list column).
3. down arrow four times.
4. enter
5. down arrow
6. enter.

If you want to do it quicker, you can press WINDOWS+X , press U then U again, or windows+m to go to desktop then alt+f4, or just press the power button on your machine (I know that last one is easiest of all, I've just never got into the habit of doing it as that used to be strongly avoided due to data loss :)

There's a new dark mode which you can get to without a registry hack now which affects mostly just settings but does make it a bit easier for some.

Hi, Quentin,

The easiest way for me to shut down is to go to the desktop, hit alt F-4 and hit enter. I also like the windows X, u and u keystroke too. It's similar to how you'd shut down in windows XP.

Hi Steve,

To be honest, one of the biggest changes I have found, is that the start menu is now three columns wide. The left column has user account / file explorer / settings / power, the middle column has recent apps then all apps (first letter navigation jumps straight to first app of that letter in full apps list), and the right column has the windows 8 style tiles. You can still only pin to the right column but at least you can press the context menu to get recent files for any program there now which is nice.

What annoys me is that to shut down from here involves:
1. Windows
2. tab (takes you to the left column first, if you'd press down arrow you'd have started moving down the middle app list column).

Re: [NVDA pronouncing "County" as "Company" in address line

The Gamages
 

Hello Chris and Gene,
 
I’ve just cleared the entry I put in before, all is now back to normal although co is still pronounced company, I think that , because I changed the letters c and o to say coe, every occurrence of these letters, even if contained in other words will be pronounced as I put it in the voice dictionary, so the words could, cooled etc are corupted.
 
There is obviously a way of using the entries in the voice dictionary to affect whole words only, more study needed here on my part.
 
Best Regards, Jim.

Try the following to get into the Voice dictionary:

NVDA+n – to open the NVDA menu

P – to open the preferences menu

D – to open the Speech dictionaries menu

V – to open the Voice dictionary dialog

Now press alt+d to list entries.  Use down arrow to move down the list, if nothing is listed, then there are no entries and as Gene says, it is maybe programmed into the synth you are using.  Try pressing alt+a and creating the entry you want, press the OK button when your entry is complete, then the OK button on the next screen.  Do some tests and see what you get.

I’m going to sound really thick here, I have gone into all three dictionaries and can’t get NVDA to speak the list of entries in either the default dictionary or the voice dictionary. I want to get the word Co to say just that, not company or county , I want this whether there is a full stop after it or not. There is obviously an entry in the list pertaining to this which I want to delete, but first I need to find it in the list, as I said, I can’t get the list spokenin order to focus on this entry.

Can anyone elaborate on how to read the list?  Thank you in advance.

You can do this via the speech dictionaries.  To edit the dictionary:

 

1. Press NVDA+n to open the NVDA menu

2. Press P for preferences

3. Press enter or d for default dictionary, v for voice dictionary or t for temporary dictionary:

 

·  Default: rules in this dictionary affect all speech in NVDA.

·  Voice: rules in this dictionary affect speech for the synthesizer voice currently being used.

·  Temporary: rules in this dictionary affect all speech in NVDA, but only for the current session. These rules are temporary and will be lost if NVDA is restarted.

4. Press alt+a to add a new rule

5. Type "co." (with the dot but without the quotes)

6. Press tab

7. Type the new word (county)

8. Press enter

9. Press TAB four times to get to the OK button

10. Press ENTER.

 

 

Kind regards

I am using “ETI Eloquence” as my speech engine in NVDA 2016.2 and Windows 10.

 

This is the common way to present the County in both the UK and Ireland. For example, I live in County Wicklow and this is represented in my address line as “Co. Wicklow”. However, NVDA says “Company Wicklow” every time!

How can I fix this?

All advice and thoughts are welcome.

Re: [NVDA pronouncing "County" as "Company" in address line

The Gamages
 

Hello Chris and Gene,
 
Thank you for your replies, After much thought I remember doing this in the Jaws dictionary, I find no entries in any of the NVDA dictionaries, this seems strange to me, but, nevertheless, I have followed your advice and made an entry in the voice dictionary, I typed the letters co in the first field and then realised that it was no good typing the same into the next field, I had to type something which sounded like that which I desired, so I typed coe into this field, then pressed both the OK buttons in turn, this had the desired efect.
 
Of course, in the previous messages, the replacement was another word which could be spoken, so it worked, in my case I wanted co to be pronounced as just that with no frills, maybe worth a mention for anyone else in the same position.
 
unfortunately, after doing this, the word course is pronounced curse and could pronounced cooled, also cooled is hardly pronounce at all.
I’ve probably made things worse, so I had better try and undo all I have done.
Best Regards, Jim.

Hi Cearbhall

The \b is RE syntax indicating a word boundary

“Co” is just a literal string

\. Here the backslash indicates the period character is to be treated as a literal as the period character itself is part of the RE syntax  

\s is RE syntax which indicates there should be “whitespace” following the “Co.” String.  Whitespace in this context can be a space, linefeed, carriage return, formfeed character, basically any formatting character not considered part of the word itself.

 

I’ve tried several combinations of patterns and replacements, both text and RE but  \bCo\.\s works the best.  When you edited the dictionary entry, did you press on the 2 OK buttons as you exited the dialog? 

 

Cheers

Chris

Re: [NVDA pronouncing "County" as "Company" in address line

Synthesizers are programmed to pronounce many abbreviations as though they are a certain thing such as capital c o period  as company.  This is not caused by the screen-reader and no entry will be found in any user dictionary. 
 
You can change what is said by creating a dictionary entry, but unless you have created entries in the NVDA dictionaries, there will not be any entries. 
 
I don't know if NVDA itself has been programmed to pronounce anything in certain ways but if it has, no dictionary entries account for it.  The pronounciations are placed somewhere else and again, you can change them by creating a dictionary entry.

Hello,
 
I’m going to sound really thick here, I have gone into all three dictionaries and can’t get NVDA to speak the list of entries in either the default dictionary or the voice dictionary. I want to get the word Co to say just that, not company or county , I want this whether there is a full stop after it or not. There is obviously an entry in the list pertaining to this which I want to delete, but first I need to find it in the list, as I said, I can’t get the list spokenin order to focus on this entry.
Can anyone elaborate on how to read the list?  Thank you in advance.
 
Best Regards, Jim.

You can do this via the speech dictionaries.  To edit the dictionary:
 
1. Press NVDA+n to open the NVDA menu
2. Press P for preferences
3. Press enter or d for default dictionary, v for voice dictionary or t for temporary dictionary:
 
  • Default: rules in this dictionary affect all speech in NVDA.
  • Voice: rules in this dictionary affect speech for the synthesizer voice currently being used.
  • Temporary: rules in this dictionary affect all speech in NVDA, but only for the current session. These rules are temporary and will be lost if NVDA is restarted.

    4. Press alt+a to add a new rule
  • 5. Type "co." (with the dot but without the quotes)
    6. Press tab
    7. Type the new word (county)
    8. Press enter
    9. Press TAB four times to get to the OK button
    10. Press ENTER.

    Kind regards

    Hi,

     

    I wonder if anyone can advise how I can get NVDA to say “County” when it meets the contraction “Co.” in an address line?

     

    I am using “ETI Eloquence” as my speech engine in NVDA 2016.2 and Windows 10.

     

    This is the common way to present the County in both the UK and Ireland. For example, I live in County Wicklow and this is represented in my address line as “Co. Wicklow”. However, NVDA says “Company Wicklow” every time!

    How can I fix this?

    All advice and thoughts are welcome.

     

    All the best,

    Re: Windows 10/nvda/powershell 64

    Mr. Wong Chi Wai <cwwong.pro@...>
     

    powershell is accessible with NVDA?
    In my experience, it didn't..... even I copy a command and press enter, it didn't speak the result.....

    Hi, I assume folk are aware of this strange behaviour. Powershell is not something I use a lot, basically a glorified command prompt, but the 32 bit version has served me well on all machines before, and indeed works fine in windows 10, but..
    I did last night run the 64 bit version and found the following with nvda. Typing into the command line is silent, but cursoring and deleting works
    Running a command etc, results in a mixed spoken output of normal text output and single letters, ie spelled out speech, rather than that part of the output.
    Anyone know what causes this weird effect?
    Its not fixed in the next branch cos I tried it last night.

    Re: [NVDA pronouncing "County" as "Company" in address line

    Chris Mullins
     

    Hi Cearbhall

    The \b is RE syntax indicating a word boundary

    “Co” is just a literal string

    \. Here the backslash indicates the period character is to be treated as a literal as the period character itself is part of the RE syntax  

    \s is RE syntax which indicates there should be “whitespace” following the “Co.” String.  Whitespace in this context can be a space, linefeed, carriage return, formfeed character, basically any formatting character not considered part of the word itself.

     

    I’ve tried several combinations of patterns and replacements, both text and RE but  \bCo\.\s works the best.  When you edited the dictionary entry, did you press on the 2 OK buttons as you exited the dialog? 

     

    Cheers

    Chris

    Chris,

     

    I have just now tried this, exactly as you give it here, and it failed to translate any part of the sentence. Perhaps I did something wrong? Could you explain the parts fo the regular expression that you have used?

     

    All the best,
