Between each session, there will be a break of 15-30 minutes to
get
Teamtalk rooms tested and the speakers' microphone functioning

Duration of daily conferencing should not exceed four hours.

dates
will be fixed as per request and selection of session hosts and

NVDA+f2 only works to pass through keys which are NVDA commands.  Control+space isn't an NVDA command so this won't help here.

Re: Virtual Recorder

David Moore
 

Hi Gene,
Thank you so much. When I set it to a virtual device, it records everything I hear from my computer, but nothing picked up by the built in mike. When I set it to both, that is when Virtual recorder records everything I hear from the computer, and everything picked up by the built in mike as well. Setting it to sound card just records what is picked up by my built in mike, and that is all. The built in mike must not be a virtual device while everything you hear must be. This is really interesting.
Thanks Gene.

Your sound card has different settings such as line-in and microphone.  If you set the sound card to a source, that is what you would be recording with it.  If you set it to microphone, you would only record the microphone.  Your sound card may not have a line-in setting.  Many laptops don't have line in jacks and you need to use another sound card, such as a USB external sound card to get a line-in jack. 
 
Virtual device doesn't use your sound card.  Windows 7 and higher has something that can do what I described using the virtual device setting.  I don't have the technical knowledge to discuss it further to any extent.  The point is that it will record anything you hear through your sound card but your sound card is not what is being recorded from.  I should add that I don't know if you can record things your sound card isn't set to play.  But the point is that when you use virtual device as the setting, you can directly record your screen-reader.  The microphone doesn't have to be used.  You can record an Internet stream.  You can record music and you speking using a microphone at the same time.  I haven't played with it enough to go into detail about how you might turn off the internal microphone so that you would only record your screen-reader and, for example, and Internet stream.  Others who have used this feature or the same feature in another program may be able to provide much more information. 
 
I'm not sure where using the both setting would be an advantage. 
I haven't used virtual device and other options in the program enough to discuss how to get desired results as to what sources are recorded.  Perhaps all sources are recorded when using virtual device and you can't change them.  In that case, if you want to record an internet stream, and not record the internal microphone, you might have to stop the microphone from functioning by plugging a plug into the microphone jack with nothing connected to it.  But I'm speculating and just providing an example of how you might get around the problem.  It is not necessarily the only or best way. 
 
Also, XP users should know that the virtual device method can't be used in that version of Windows.  The program can be used to record from the sound card but XP doesn't support the virtual device method of recording.

Hi Gene,
Please explain this further. I had no idea about all of this. Could you please explain all three options and when you use which one. I keep it on both, because it records JAWS and my voice through a built in mike so I can do tutorials. When do you use the first and third choice. Also, what is the difference between a virtual device and your sound card. Could you give some examples of virtual devices, and why is the program called, virtual recorder? What you said makes this program more important than I thought. Thanks a lot. I like to learn, so I will enjoy what you have to say.

You keep saying the choice is between your sound card and your voice.  When you record your voice, you are recording using the microphone input of your sound card.  The real advantages of this program are that it allows you to record from both a virtual device and a sound card simultaneously so you can mix things in more ways.  You can also record from just a virtual device.  the virtual device ability allows you to record things such as Internet Streams even if your sound card doesn't support the What You Hear or Stereo Mix option.  This option has other names as well.  If your sound card supports it, you can record anything your sound card plays.  It has become increasingly difficult to find sound cards that support StereoMix in later versions of Windows.  Virtual Device gives you another way to do the same thing and may save you a good deal of fooling around and may save you the need to purchahse another sound card. 

In other words, when you record from your soundcard, you can record whatever sources your sound card supports.   If you set your sound card to line in, you can record line-in.  If you set your sound card recording source to Microphone, you can record using your Microphone etc.
 
When using the virtual device setting, you can record as though your sound card supports stereo mix.  But you are not recording using your sound card. 
 
If this is difficult to understand, I'll attempt to explain it further but more people might be interested in the program and might realize more ways in which it can be used if they understand this distinction.
 
But one example is that if you want to record an Internet stream and your sound card doesn't support stereo Mix, you can use the virtual device setting to record the stream as it plays.  But if you do, you can't do things such as use a screen-reader.  The screen-reader will be recorded as well.

Hi Jolene,
I have the link for the virtual recorder, that I will put below. It will
work on your Windows PC. A good friend, gave me this web site done by a guy
named Carlos nazario. The site, when brought up, just says files, and there
are a number of programs you can download from this site. Press H for
heading until you hear virtual recorder installer, or the next heading says
virtual recorder portable. I pressed enter on the virtual recorder installer
and installed it to my computer. After you install it, tab to settings and
set up a shortcut command for pause and some other tasks you will want
virtual recorder to do. It is very accessible. You will tab to a record
button and just press it to record. Now, there is a list that you must pick
a recording choice from. You can record what comes from the sound card, both
the sound card and your voice, , or just your voice. The top choice is the
first one and so on. Here is the link, and let me know if you have any
questions. Here is the link.

Hello there,

I just did a Google search on "Virtual Recorder," which someone had
recommended for us Windows 10 users who're searching for a sound
recorder that'll work with both Windows 10 and NVDA.
Here's a few of the links I discovered:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ix.com.android.VirtualRecorder&hl=en

http://virtual-recorder.soft112.com/

One appears to be for Android phones, and the other one appears to be
some kind of stand-alone device, but I think some of us is looking for
one for PC's if such a software exists.

Then when I did a search for "Virtual Audio Recorder," I got this link:

http://www.virtualaudiorecorder.com/

So my question is this: Is it called Virtual Recorder, Virtual Audio
Recorder, or something else?

Please be specific, because even when one word of the software name is
off, a person will get the wrong information!

Thank you.

aloha,

Jolene.






Re: Chinese keyboard layout problem on Windows 7

Quentin Christensen
 

Firstly, I found this regarding the original problem of control+space being hooked by the Chinese lanugage: http://superuser.com/questions/327479/ctrl-space-always-toggles-chinese-ime-windows-7

And for the second question about what control+space otherwise does, when you are in File Explorer or Windows Explorer, as you arrow through the files in a directory, you can selection files that are next to each other by holding down shift and using the arrows (or home or end etc) - this way you can move a number of files at once.

If the files you want to move aren't next to each other, you can still do this by holding down control, using the arrow keys to move through your files and pressing spacebar (thus control+space) to toggle whether each file is selected or not.

Once you have selected the files you want, you can copy, move, delete them etc.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Dear all,
After gathering feedback from all of you and making several
considerations, we have come up with a tentative conference agenda
with approximate average timings for each respective session:
First Day
. User General Chat Opener Forum (60 to 90 minutes) - The allocated
time for this session is flexible as this is meant as an NVDA user
networking and discussion session and content depends on what NVDA
aspect participants wish to raise or talk about.
. Switching from Other Screen Reader to NVDA (60 minutes) - The
allotted hour can be roughly divided into two equal time sections
(ultimately left up to the discretion of the presenters) where the
first half will be solely demonstration, and the latter half a Q & A
from listeners and participants to the presenters.
. Connecting and Contributing to the Larger NVDA Communities (30-45
minutes) - It is being imagined that this session will consist mostly
of explanations and a limited time period at the end will remain for Q
& A.
Second Day
. Asian Language TTS Support (45-60 minutes)
. Keynote Address (90-120 minutes) - This session will be the longest
one as maximum questions are expected during this period to actual
NVDA code authors and developers.

Between each session, there will be a break of 15-30 minutes to get
Teamtalk rooms tested and the speakers' microphone functioning
verified, as well as to redirect users to appropriate Teamtalk rooms
and for other obvious reasons.
Duration of daily conferencing should not exceed four hours.

Two very preferable dates for the conference according to organizers
are the 25th and 26th of june or the 9th and 10th of July. The dates
will be fixed as per request and selection of session hosts and
speakers, but all of you can also freely caste in your votes if the
two proposed dates would work generally fine. Since we haven't
received further notices of potential problems in participations from
Islamic folks, we are assuming that the last weekend of June as noted
above should also be sufficiently convenient despite on-going
religious observances.

If all the above sounds fine, please indicate so by replying and
sharing your comments. The next phase of conference planning is
inviting and recruiting speakers and presenters for various sessions.
Thanks for your continued interest and enthusiasm towards this
continental NVDACon!
Thanks.

Chinese keyboard layout problem on Windows 7

Marco Oros
 

Hello!

I don't know, where to post this problem, but I know, that there are some users also from China (Mainland), which uses a Chinese keyboard.

But, I have a problem.

I don't know, how to use a similar shortcut, like a ctrl+space to select some items in the list. Because this shortcut is used to switch between Chinese and English keyboard, when You have added a Chinese keyboard.

Please, how do I resolve this problem?

Thank You!

Re: Virtual Recorder

Brian's Mail list account BY <bglists@...>
 

The point usually is that if you have any input selected and its monitor is on you will record it, however the big thing about virtual recorder is that it can record from the output so to speak as well as the input, thus any codec capable of sending sound to the output is recorded. Its called virtual because there is often not this option in the sound card software at all, however as the audio is indeed there, then it can be recorded. as was mentioned earlier its an all or nothing recorder in that all inputs and the streamed content are recorded when what you hear is selected. If other inputs are enabled with monitor then they too get recorded, so you need to be a bit careful.
Not tried it but one assumes if the line in is enabled and you have a hardware mixer in use and enable that input to monitor, Virtual record will also record that along with the system sounds and the screenreader, so you can do m demos.
I've recently found that it will work with that cheap but good quality little usb box sold under many names that has phono sockets aand auto volume setting so very good quality recordings can be made easily without overloading.

Your sound card has different settings such as line-in and microphone. If you set the sound card to a source, that is what you would be recording with it. If you set it to microphone, you would only record the microphone. Your sound card may not have a line-in setting. Many laptops don't have line in jacks and you need to use another sound card, such as a USB external sound card to get a line-in jack.

Virtual device doesn't use your sound card. Windows 7 and higher has something that can do what I described using the virtual device setting. I don't have the technical knowledge to discuss it further to any extent. The point is that it will record anything you hear through your sound card but your sound card is not what is being recorded from. I should add that I don't know if you can record things your sound card isn't set to play. But the point is that when you use virtual device as the setting, you can directly record your screen-reader. The microphone doesn't have to be used. You can record an Internet stream. You can record music and you speking using a microphone at the same time. I haven't played with it enough to go into detail about how you might turn off the internal microphone so that you would only record your screen-reader and, for example, and Internet stream. Others who have used this feature or the same feature in another program may be able to provide much more information.

I'm not sure where using the both setting would be an advantage.
I haven't used virtual device and other options in the program enough to discuss how to get desired results as to what sources are recorded. Perhaps all sources are recorded when using virtual device and you can't change them. In that case, if you want to record an internet stream, and not record the internal microphone, you might have to stop the microphone from functioning by plugging a plug into the microphone jack with nothing connected to it. But I'm speculating and just providing an example of how you might get around the problem. It is not necessarily the only or best way.

Also, XP users should know that the virtual device method can't be used in that version of Windows. The program can be used to record from the sound card but XP doesn't support the virtual device method of recording.

Hi Gene,
Please explain this further. I had no idea about all of this. Could you please explain all three options and when you use which one. I keep it on both, because it records JAWS and my voice through a built in mike so I can do tutorials. When do you use the first and third choice. Also, what is the difference between a virtual device and your sound card. Could you give some examples of virtual devices, and why is the program called, virtual recorder? What you said makes this program more important than I thought. Thanks a lot. I like to learn, so I will enjoy what you have to say.

You keep saying the choice is between your sound card and your voice. When you record your voice, you are recording using the microphone input of your sound card. The real advantages of this program are that it allows you to record from both a virtual device and a sound card simultaneously so you can mix things in more ways. You can also record from just a virtual device. the virtual device ability allows you to record things such as Internet Streams even if your sound card doesn't support the What You Hear or Stereo Mix option. This option has other names as well. If your sound card supports it, you can record anything your sound card plays. It has become increasingly difficult to find sound cards that support StereoMix in later versions of Windows. Virtual Device gives you another way to do the same thing and may save you a good deal of fooling around and may save you the need to purchahse another sound card.

In other words, when you record from your soundcard, you can record whatever sources your sound card supports. If you set your sound card to line in, you can record line-in. If you set your sound card recording source to Microphone, you can record using your Microphone etc.

When using the virtual device setting, you can record as though your sound card supports stereo mix. But you are not recording using your sound card.

If this is difficult to understand, I'll attempt to explain it further but more people might be interested in the program and might realize more ways in which it can be used if they understand this distinction.

But one example is that if you want to record an Internet stream and your sound card doesn't support stereo Mix, you can use the virtual device setting to record the stream as it plays. But if you do, you can't do things such as use a screen-reader. The screen-reader will be recorded as well.

Hello there,

I just did a Google search on "Virtual Recorder," which someone had
recommended for us Windows 10 users who're searching for a sound
recorder that'll work with both Windows 10 and NVDA.
Here's a few of the links I discovered:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ix.com.android.VirtualRecorder&hl=en

http://virtual-recorder.soft112.com/

One appears to be for Android phones, and the other one appears to be
some kind of stand-alone device, but I think some of us is looking for
one for PC's if such a software exists.

Then when I did a search for "Virtual Audio Recorder," I got this link:

http://www.virtualaudiorecorder.com/

So my question is this: Is it called Virtual Recorder, Virtual Audio
Recorder, or something else?

Please be specific, because even when one word of the software name is
off, a person will get the wrong information!

Thank you.

set up a shortcut command for pause and some other tasks you will want
virtual recorder to do. It is very accessible. You will tab to a record
button and just press it to record. Now, there is a list that you must pick
a recording choice from. You can record what comes from the sound card, both
the sound card and your voice, , or just your voice. The top choice is the
first one and so on. Here is the link, and let me know if you have any
questions. Here is the link.

Subject: [nvda] Virtual Recorder

Hello there,

I just did a Google search on "Virtual Recorder," which someone had
recommended for us Windows 10 users who're searching for a sound
recorder that'll work with both Windows 10 and NVDA.
Here's a few of the links I discovered:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ix.com.android.VirtualRecorder&hl=en

http://virtual-recorder.soft112.com/

One appears to be for Android phones, and the other one appears to be
some kind of stand-alone device, but I think some of us is looking for
one for PC's if such a software exists.

Then when I did a search for "Virtual Audio Recorder," I got this link:

http://www.virtualaudiorecorder.com/

So my question is this: Is it called Virtual Recorder, Virtual Audio
Recorder, or something else?

Please be specific, because even when one word of the software name is
off, a person will get the wrong information!

Thank you.

aloha,

Jolene.
