Hi,

When this happens again, can you attach the log file so one of us can take a look at it? Also, which Word version is this?

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Looking for a grammar program

Antony Stone
 

Firstly, please do not hijack a message thread about NVDA locking up with
Firefox and ask a totally unrelated question about grammar applications.
Please start a new message instead.

Secondly, what do you mean by "a grammar program"? Do you want something to
assess the grammar of your documents and tell you their readability scores
(for example, such as MS Office can do), or are you looking for something to
detect and possibly suggest corrections to grammatical mistakes?

Or maybe something else?


Antony.

Re: eSpeak NG sounds a bit weird in some instances...

Andre Fisher
 

Meanwhile, you can still use the SpeechPlayer in eSpeak add-on. It is
still tied to the older version of eSpeak at the moment. That's a
temporary fix till the issues are sorted, if they are at least. You
can switch to the Max variant, but be warned, it does not sound
exactly the same.

Hi Chris,
Currently, Firefox is the best in terms of performance, accessibility
and functionality. Although Google Chrome is still improving, you may
need to install Canary builds and encounter other insignificant things
perhaps, which you may not wish for.
Go for Firefox.
Thanks.

Re: Text out delay

mohammad suliman
 

hello,
if I remember correctly, I saw a thread about this on the add-ons list. not sure that an add-on officially is available for this.
and yes, that is correct, sure an add-on can provide that functionality.
best.

Hi all,

 

  I am using the NVDA to ssh to the remote linux machine.

The remote server connection is little slow, so NVDA speaks faster then I would like to.

  For example, while using arrow keys to move up and down, the line is spoken before actually cursor moves to next or prior line.

  My question, is there any way to make nvda to delay before speaking, like the text out delay in Jaws or window-eyes? Is there any add-on? I don’t think, there is the setting in NVDA itself, I believe, I checked everything.

 

  I am sure, it would be possible to write the script, which will delay the speech while moving cursor keys, before trying to do so I would like to check, if something like this already exists.

 

  Thanks so much for any information.

Re: strange one just now.

Quentin Christensen
 

I just re-read this, sorry, as others have said, this is a new feature of NVDA - it buzzes when it detects a spelling error as you type.  Sorry, I was thinking you were navigating through the timeline on facebook, I misread it!

Here's the relevant bit from the what's new:

  • If reporting of spelling errors is enabled and supported in the focused control, NVDA will play a sound to alert you of a spelling error made while typing. This can be disabled using the new "Play sound for spelling errors while typing" option in NVDA's Keyboard Settings dialog. (#2024)
  • Grammar errors are now reported in Microsoft Word. This can be disabled using the new "Report grammar errors" option in NVDA's Document Formatting preferences dialog. (#5877)

You can get to the document formatting dialog either directly via NVDA+control+d or via the NVDA menu (NVDA+n) then Preferences (P) then Document Formatting (F).

Kind regards

Quentin.

I should point out that if you don't read such information. or at least skim it and read the sections in detail that interest you, you run the risk of not knowing about features you may find useful for quite some time.  New features are often not evident just by using the program as usual.  You have to know about them to be aware of and use them since using the program as usual will not cause them to be presented.

Please read the What's new information when you upgrade.  It's in the help submenu and you can find it by up or down arrowing through the help submenu when you open it from the main menu.  This is a new feature of NVDA.
Also, when a new version is released, Joseph sends the list information about the new release, as he has in this case.  As far as I know, his information duplicates the What's New information in that he provides a link to read about What's New on line.
