Gene,

 

I see that the link spreads over two lines and is broken. Could you remove the carriage return that is breaking the link and try again?

 

Alternatively, you might like to try this link which does still work for me:

http://library.bolindadigital.com/southdublinBorrowBox

 

It is a link to the original test site and you might be able to bring it up. Ignore the sign in links as you cannot sign in but you can preview the books without being signed in.

 

 

All the best,

Hi,

I found a problem in Firefox when attempting to listen to a sample of an
audio book in the BorrowBox library system. I don't know if this is an NVDA
problem or exclusively a Firefox Flash Player issue. or if Bolinda need to
do something with their Java script. I should mention that the sighted user
has no problem playing the audio sample using a mouse.

I am using Windows 10,, NVDA 2016.1 and Firefox46.1 on a desktop PC.

If List members would like to see the problem for themselves I recommend the
following url:
https://fe.bolindadigital.com/wldcs_bol_fo/b2i/productOverview.html?b2bSite=
4834&browseItemId=366096&fromPage=1
It is not necessary to sign in to sample the reading of a title.

Here is a typical audio book display:

--Start of clip -----------------------
link graphic Railway Viaduct
embedded object unavailable (this should say "Preview" but doesn't!)
Link Reserve
On Loan, Available on 22/05/16
Link Railway Viaduct
Link Edward Marston
Read by Sam Dastor
Crime & Thriller, Historical Fiction
eAudiobook - Unabridged
---end of clip ------------------

The player for the audio sample is activated by an "embedded object" that is
flagged by NVDA as "not being available". The BorrowBox help page advises
that Adobe flash must be active to enable audio sampling of each title. I
have Adobe flash installed and active. For example, I can play any song in
YouTube in Firefox without any problem.

After many weeks of failing to play the preview, I found the following
workaround using NVDA:

From the top of the web page select eAudio if not already selected. Then
press "g" to find a book title. If the next   object after pressing
down-arrow once is "embedded Object" then you have an audio book and we can
start.

Here is the full sequence of steps:
1. Press G for the graphic of the book title;
2. Press down-arrow once to the embedded object. You should hear "Embedded
Object not available";
3. Press NVDA + numpad Enter to activate the embedded object. You should
hear "Embedded Object Unavailable Activate";
4. Press right arrow once. You should hear ""Space";
5. Press the space bar  to start and stop the sample audio of the narrator
speaking.

If pressing the space bar does not act as a toggle and the enter key does
not do the job either:
6. Press right arrow once;
7. Press space bar or main keyboard enter to play and stop playing the audio
sample.

Can anyone advise what to do about this?
A. Is it an NVDA problem?
B. Is it a Firefox problem?
c. Is it a BorrowBox problem for the developer Bolinda to see to?


All the best,

Cearbhall

Re: Cannot read PDF documents with NVDA

 

Afrim,

         Unfortunately, this forum does not support attachments, and I'm presuming that you attached the file you're trying to read to an e-mail message you posted to the group.  If you can upload the thing to any form of cloud storage that allows those supplied with the link to download the file that would be a good workaround.

         I'm also pasting some advice I got from Freedom Scientific Technical Support a couple of months ago related to PDF files.  Although I know you're not using JAWS a lot of what's mentioned is more generally applicable.

-----------------------------------

This is an Adobe Reader setting that is causing this to take place. If you walk through the instructions below, you can change this setting:

A. Using the Accessibility Set Up Assistant

When you launch a PDF the first time, the accessibility set up assistant opens. If the accessibility wizard has already run, do the following to open it:

1. Press ALT+E to open the Edit menu.

2. Press Y to select Accessibility submenu.

3. Press ENTER on Set Up Assistant. The first page of this five page dialog box opens. The default choice is fine, press ENTER to move to the next page.

4. On the second page you can change things if you wish, but by default it is OK. Press ENTER to move to page three.

5. On the third page you can change things if you wish, but by default it is OK. Press ENTER to move to page four.

6. On the fourth page, if you want to use the list of links, list of headings, and the JAWS find command so on to access long documents, change the radio button from

"For large documents, only read the currently visible pages"

to

"Read the entire document at once."

If you do not make this change, in long documents JAWS only sees the links and headings on the current page. Additionally, JAWS can only search the current page with the JAWS find command. If you do select read the entire document at once, it may take a few seconds longer to process large documents, but it is worth it to be able to see the links and  headings in the entire document, or to search the entire document with the JAWS find.

7. Press ENTER to move to page five of the Set Up Assistant.

8. If the check box for Reopen documents to the last viewed page is checked, you may want to uncheck this. It is a personal preference. TAB through until you reach the check box for "Display PDF documents in the web browser," and uncheck it.

9. Press ENTER to activate the Done button.

 

B. Additional changes in Adobe Reader XI preferences.

1. Press CTRL+K to open the Adobe Reader XI preferences.

2. In the Categories list on the left side of the dialog box, choose Accessibility.

3. Press TAB to move to the item, Show Portfolios in Files mode (not checked by default) - check this.

4. Press TAB to move back to the Categories list and choose Security (Enhanced).

5. Press TAB to move to Enable Protected Mode at startup (checked by default) - uncheck this.

6. Press TAB to move to the OK button, and activate it with the SPACEBAR.

 

NOTE: The option to view PDF documents in the browser is no longer found in the Preferences. You must use the Set Up Assistant to find this

This is a strange issue. This only happens for me when I cancel the
dialog that loads the text accessibly.

Hi Afrim,
If possible, and if it does not infringe on confidentiality or copyright (do
ensure that), then, it would be really helpful if you could share a sample
file as one of those PDFs you receive from your professors. Practical
examination and analysis of those PDF files by members may result in more
accurate suggestions.
Thanks.

Hello everyone,
I have seriously started using NVDA, and this time is more serious
than other times, because I have upgraded to windows 10, and it works
very well, and I do mean very very well. One of my biggest issues I'm
currently facing is reading pdf documents with NVDA. On the adobe
reader, or adobe acrobat reader, NVDA reads absolutely nothing. I
have to work everyday with those types of documents because my
university professors provide me with lectures or books in pdf

So, could somebody help me with this problem because it is very
important to me. Every answer is appreciated.

Re: Translation add-on

Hi,

I liked the Instant Translate addon because when reading a document with the occasional word say in German, I can have have NVDA translate it immediately without the hassle of going to the internet. I will be great if someone with the expertise can write another translation addon.

Thanks.

As a temperary solution go to blindaudiogames.com
Ian reed has written the jgt addon which works for japanese games, you will need a username and password on his site as he is paying for the translations for these games and the translations are cached on his server.
He eventually hopes to have all the translated japanese games at least on his server making as little requests to google as he can.
Its not an official nvda addon but it works, another unofficial addon which is on the jeff.tdrealms.com nvda site with all the others is if interpriters by nick stockman or is it stockton.
This handles glulx and a few other interpriters this one is not official and has not had updates for a while but its good.
The only thing one needs to do with winfrotz is to start the program first before opening a game with glulx this is fine.
Sadly google translate will not work by addon but you should still be able to translate webpages, there is a user limit on it to.

Hi! Yes you are right! The addon has stopped working because of
following reason:
The instant translate addon uses Google Translate API to translate text
across language. Now Google has changed the API and the addon can't use it.
The addon can't work until Google change the API again or the addon
author find another translate API.

I don't think that there is an alternative addon available at this time.
I suggest you to use other translation software such as QTranslate.
Hope that will help!

Best Regards!

Hi Afrim,
If possible, and if it does not infringe on confidentiality or
copyright (do ensure that), then, it would be really helpful if you
could share a sample file as one of those PDFs you receive from your
professors. Practical examination and analysis of those PDF files by
members may result in more accurate suggestions.
Thanks.

Re: Cannot read PDF documents with NVDA

Well firstly we need to know if the files are proper text and not as some instruction manuals seem to be, some form of image of pages of a printed source.

Obviously in that case somebody needs to fix the format. Normally you can test this by exporting the text and seeing if there is any.
assuming there is then several things come to mind. I do not know about Windows 10, but sometimes one has to look in the config area of adobe reader and turn off any protection items or security etc, to be able to read them.

Obviously also we have got to be sure that if these are complex documents with changes in columns and graphics etc, that the get tagged when created. This is a process few seem to do and even less understand. I know I don't understand how its done, but if its not done and reading order changes in a document, then it tends to go into gobbledegook. I really would advise if you can to suggest the texts are sent to you in a known doc format so that they can be manipulated easier.
I had a very odd problem the other day while working on the UK elections pdf, where the first page was fine, but all subsequent pages were just jumbled up, as if the tagging had failed after the first page.

I know Nvaccess has put a lot of effort into getting pdf files to work well but sadly those making such files need to play their part or its a total waste of time.
