Hello Paul,

If you're using version 0.9.5 of WebVisum from the Mozilla Firefox add-ons page, the problem is with it. I was using the same version and had the same problem. I solved it by removing it and reverting to the signed 0.9.2 version from James Scholes. You can download it from here:

Assunto: [nvda] nvda and braille



Hi everyone,

I recently switched from mac os x to windows 10.

I use both nvda and windoweyes. I like nvda a lot because its really fast
with braille and speech and because it works well out of the box with many
programs.

I am mainly a braille user though and do miss the ability to use my thumb
keys to scroll throughout a programs screen. Furthermore I was wondering if
there are any complete braille tables for nvda? The ones I get contain a lot
of garbage between text and nos just one or two characters but a lot of it.
Is it perhaps possible to import a braille table from another screenreader
because I don't get this anywhere else?

Thanks in advance for any info,

Greetings, Anouk,

Hi Joseph

 

I don’t intend in any way to get involved in the developing or writing of any solutions, simply because I’m not clued up on computer, or software programming.

 

Thank you for your explanation. Although, for many of us, I think that much of it is too technical, but I enjoyed reading it as it I now understand, even better, the emencity of the work you and the developers does.

 

Thanks very much for making our, the people who can only use NVDA and all the addons and plugins, to do our work.

 

Thanks again, I’m sure I speak on behalf of the NVDA community when I thank you.

Subject: Re: [nvda] getting the repeting of the subject line in an e-mail to stop repeting when you open a message

 

Hi everyone,

Okay, the following is a bit technical, so I’ll try my best to explain what’s going on. But first, to answer Casey’s original question:

 

Preventing NVDA from announcing message fields when you open a message (Thunderbird, Outlook, etc.): yes and no. Let me address the “no” answer first, as I think it is important to understand some behind the scenes work:

NVDA is armed with strategies to deal with specific controls and how it should act accordingly. For example, NVDA can treat some lists as tables, announce terminal output, read dialog texts and so on. To house these strategies (termed “behaviors” in NVDA development world), a specific subsystem is devoted to telling NVDA how it should act when meeting certain controls. This subsystem is divided into two parts:

·         Behaviors mix-in: a collection of strategies to work with various controls such as dialogs.

·         Control definitions: each accessibility API layer allows developers to specify what NVDA should do when meeting specific controls.

The advantage of this is that it is easy to extend this subsystem, but with a cost: once known, NVDA will hold onto known controls. But it is possible to tweak behaviors and add additional extensions on top of it (for example, telling NVDA to announce dialog text in reverse order).

Now the “yes” answer: it might be possible to tell NVDA to not announce message headers, provided that NVDA can recognize such cases. This is because message headers are housed inside a dialog, and this one is a generic MSAA/IAccessible dialog (from NVDA’s perspective), or in some cases, NVDA is told to announce contents of a window automatically.

 

Technical: At least in Outlook, window class name for this dialog is #32770 (very generic MSAA dialog), and it’s the matter of subclassing NVDAObjects.behaviors.Dialog) and attaching it to an overlay class. This is similar to what I did back in June to deal with newer style User Account Control dialog in Windows 10 version 1607 (took me two days to figure out the class name for the dialog and told NVDA to treat what appeared to be a window as a dialog; because it was a secure screen, I had to write a custom global plugin to figure out what was happening inside).

 

A challenge for would-be aspiring NVDA developers (I might not be able to do it for a while due to speech competitions): write a working algorithm that solves Casey’s issue. Define the problem, your research findings, source code file names/lines that needs to be modified, why your idea is good and demonstrate that it actually works. For bonus points, add one or more notes describing cases where your work would (and will) fail (I put this as a bonus point so you can think carefully before writing your solution). I’ll accept solutions from those who are:

 

·         Determined and dedicated to help someone in our community despite setbacks.

·         Willing to learn NVDA source code.

 

I will add bonus points if you:

 

·         Address your solution as though you are talking to Casey directly.

·         Are willing to explain in simple terms what’s going on (don’t copy me; come up with explanations in your own words).

·         If writing source code, conform to NV Access coding style (camel case, tabs for indentation, etc.).

 

I added these for an important reason: developers should be servants and see solutions from users’ perspective (someone who have never heard of Python, NVDA source code and what not). Please send your solutions to me directly, and I’ll accept answers until end of October. Whichever receives highest points from judges will be considered for inclusion in an NVDA issue (I’d like to ask some seasoned devs here to be judges).


thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Does updating NVDA preserve setttings?

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

Well its supposed to do so. It kept mine, but in the past, just occasionally, it has reverted to something else. When I asked about this nobody could duplicate it, but I fancy its more likely that the original settings file was slightly corrupted in some way and parts of it were not readable at install time and hence the default settings got put in though at least let you hear what was going on. Strangely this seems to affect portable versions more often than installed ones. If you have ever had a faulty install and tried again I know this can leave things a bit strange in the .ini files.
If its a serious problem all the time, it might be worth reporting it.

John,

Someone else who uses a Braille display will have to absolutely confirm with regard to that. My experience with upgrading NVDA from release to release using the internal update feature or installing release candidate software has kept all of my settings preserved as well as all the add-ons I've installed. This is common practice now and the only deviation I commonly see from it is the inclusion of a specific question during certain installs where a question is asked as to whether you'd like to do a clean install and telling you this resets everything back to "out of the box" condition. NVDA has never presented me with one of these and has always carried my settings forward.

You cannot subscribe to the development list then, or is it that you have not managed to get subscribed.

I think its best this is sorted as I'm sure there will be lots of questions like this that will need asking.

You could also ask on the add-ons list as well, or pose it as a possible extension using git hub.

Hi there.
My name is Tuan Le Anh. I am developing Vietnamese TTS for NVDA.
I just wanted to ask a question but don't have permission to post in developer mail group.
So, I am sending to you with hope you will help me.
My problem is that I can't get speakText function to work properly.
If speakText is synchronized function, NVDA freezes while TTS reads some text.
If speakText is async, Say All feature doesn't work properly: system caret moves to end of text at once instead of moving along with reading text, or system caret doesn't move and NVDA reads only few lines of text (reads around 10 lines then stops).
Please, help me as blind people in Vietnam really need my portable synthesizer.
Thank you and looking forward to your replying,
Tuan Le Anh.


Re: Just in case nobody has seen this post by Jamie on the development list..

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

I think according to what I have been reading he problem has been getting worse since Firefox 39 or so.

As Jamie said in that message you can fix it by downloading one of the most recent nightly builds of Firefox from the development site of Mozilla. I've not bothered as it only seems to happen sometimes, but the question still not answered is why its so flaky and some people get it all the time, whilst others get it rarely.

If you are interested have a look on the nvda development list. There have been comments about it for some months.
However I don't think this is the problem those who cannot get nvda2016.3 to work from a clean install have. This seems to be something different, as yet not duplicated by any of the developers, so trying to find it is a bit hard when you cannot see any issues.
I'm not technical enough to know what else might affect this. The re registering of that windows file was the main suggestion for this type of problem but I suppose it could be any other software that is running all the time in the background and the part where it was working on older versions is peculiar too, that would point to nvda having had a major change in some way, but if that were true, then an updated version would still fail I'd have thought.

As said previously, this info helps a lot to understand the structure of tree view. Also, you won't be able to get the "index in group" and the "group count" info.

Ashley,

 

It would help to know if you are using Word or Excel.

 

Assuming you are using Excel:

 

Check the table and see if there are any blank columns in it. Sighted users sometimes like to leave blank columns between blocks of data to make them visually clearer NVDA will label a contiguous set of columns i.e. no blank columns between them.  You can set these by placing the cursor in the leftmost cell of the title row and pressing NVDA+shift+c.

 

You can label each column that is separated by doing the same keystroke in its top cell. NVDA will then call out the heading of the orphan column , leave the blank column silent, and report all the headings of the columns that are touching each other.

 

The same applies to the row heading, Place the cursor in the top left corner of the table if there are no blank column titles in the header row and press NVDA+shift+r to define the column that contains the row names.

 

Tip:

If there are any blank columns you can always place a hyphen (-) or some other minor character in the blank header cell and this will cause NVDA to treat the entire row as relating to the left most column items even if the second column remains blank below the header row.  

 

If you are using Word then this extract from the NVDA user manual should help you:

 

8.1.1. Automatic Column and Row Header Reading

NVDA is able to automatically announce appropriate row and column headers when navigating around tables in Microsoft Word. This firstly requires that the Report Table row / column headers option In NVDA's Document Formatting dialog be turned on. Secondly, NVDA needs to know which row or column contains the headers in any given table. After moving to the first cell in the column or row containing the headers, use one of the following commands:

Name

Key

Description

Set column headers

NVDA+shift+c

Pressing this once tells NVDA this is the first header cell in the row that contains column headers, which should be automatically announced when moving between columns below this row. Pressing twice will clear the setting.

Set row headers

NVDA+shift+r

Pressing this once tells NVDA this is the first header cell in the column that contains row headers, which should be automatically announced when moving between rows after this column. Pressing twice will clear the setting.

These settings will be stored in the document as bookmarks compatible with other Screen Readers such as Jaws. This means that users of other screen readers who open this document at a later date will automatically have the row and column headers already set.

 

 

All the best,

Hey all

I hope you all are doing well.

 

Does anyone know how to label columns in tables so that NVDA reads the title of the cell? If that makes any since.

Thanks.

 

 

Thank you

Hi,


How do you get libre office to read a document? I'm just asking because
I'd like to be able to use NVDA down-arrow instead of always having to
press control down-arrow to read by paragraphs.

Re: betting NVDA to stop saying blank when reading blank lines in A message

 

hi.
yes. use insert down to read all and prevent nvda from saying blank.

Are you reading messages by down arrowing line by line? If so, why not use
the read to end command. You can then just listen to the message and you
won't hear blank lines announced either.

I don't know if there is a way to cause NVDA not to say blank when a blank
line is encountered. But read to end will eliminate the problem.

Hi when I ma reading threw my e-mail and there is blank lines between
lines in what I am reading where do I go in NVDA to change it from
saying blank when it finds A blank line to say nothing when it finds A
blank line?
Or can you now change this in NVDA?

Re: Ask developers: Synth Driver: Async or Sync speakText

Tyler Spivey
 

Hi,
You can subscribe to nvda-devel here:
https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/nvda-devel
Or by sending mail to nvda-devel-request@lists.sourceforge.net with subscribe in the body.

speak (and thus speakText) must be async. When something calls speak (speakText is deprecated), send it off to a background thread.

For say all to work properly, you also have to handle indexes. An index is a marker that the screen reader sends to the synthesizer, and the synth sends back when it gets to that point in the output.

If you still need help, feel free to mail nvda-devel or mail me off-list. I've written a few of these.

My problem is that I can't get speakText function to work properly.
If speakText is synchronized function, NVDA freezes while TTS reads some
text.
If speakText is async, Say All feature doesn't work properly: system
caret moves to end of text at once instead of moving along with reading
text, or system caret doesn't move and NVDA reads only few lines of text
(reads around 10 lines then stops).
Please, help me as blind people in Vietnam really need my portable

hi Rosemarie. since libreoffice does not support say all, i installed
balabolka, as well as sapi5 version of espeak and i convert my
documents to audio and listen to it.
another way, is you can in the file menu, select preview in web
browser which make a temporary copy of your documents and you can
press insert down to read your document entirely.
hope that helps and God bless you.
