Re: Moving in Notepad

Gene
 

JAWS uses scripts for this purpose.  The script looks for a blank line and moves you beyond it.  If you are using a screen-reader that is not scripted to do this, it moves you to the next line by looking for one return.  That is my recollection anyway.  In your case, you say you stay on the current line so perhaps my recollection is wrong.  but whatever the case, NVDA doesn't behave like JAWS in notepad.

Re: text to mp3 with an nvda voice addon?

Roger Stewart
 

Maybe some program that lets you record what you hear and save it as mp3. I know Goldwave will do this but it isn't free but is very low priced for its power but I'm sure there are other programs that will do this and some should be free.

there instead some sort of way that I could use a program or a method
that could use the voices I have which are nvda addons and somehow use
my nvda reading settings to convert a text that I am reading into mp3
to use on an Ipod? Basically, these programs then sort of force you to
purchase a voice you like twice if you want to convert, once for NVDA,
and then another time for the converting program and your sappi stuff,
so I'm hoping there's a better solution?

I know it works in JAWS; I don't know if that is a specifically
JAWS-implemented feature or not. Helpful to know this, though.

Re: Moving in Notepad

Quentin Christensen
 

Has this ever worked?  To be honest, I couldn't remember - I just tried it on my Windows 10 machine​ AND a Windows 7 machine and got the same behavour as you - it doesn't move at all.

I just checked, and the control+right arrow I mentioned somewhere in this thread / group to a question does work in Notepad.

Re: Facebook on Chrome with NVDA

 

Did you try using Firefox on sites with Flash, like Youtube? From my experience with Jaws Firefox lags a lot if I click to play Flash content, but I'm not sure if this is also the case with NVDA. Feedback on this matter would be appreciated. Also has anyone experienced lags when using Firefox with Outlook.com along with NVDA?

Dear citizens of the NVDA land:

Yes, it is official: one of the ministers of NVDA land, a certain
Mr. Teh, has just ordered the horsemen to announce a good news
throughout the land:

NVDA 2016.3 is officially out:

http://www.nvaccess.org/post/announcing-nvda-2016-3-release/

So what’s new, changed and fixed:

From RC2: no changes.

Highlights:

·You can now disable individual add-ons.

·NVDA is more cofmpatible with Windows 10 Anniversary Update
(version 1607). Among the things included are return of browse
mode in Edge, announcing newer UAC prompts, ability to navigate
PDF documents in Edge and more.

·NVDA+F9/NVDA+F10 command behavior change is now official.

·Color announcement has been simplified.

·NVDA no longer announces “associated draft” in Outlook 2016.

·NVDA can now announce line spacing in Microsoft Word.

·Various enhancements.

A sneak preview at 2016.4: three game-changing features will be
served as part of Thanksgiving Party this November:

·Ever wanted to hear line indentation via beeps? You can do that
starting in November.

·Want to experience the next chapter in assistive technology
history? Or would you like to be one of the first ones to
experience a combination of a free screen reader and a low-cost
braille display? Stay tuned, as this combination will change your
life in November.

·Needed an assistant in persuading web or app developers about
accessibility needs of screen reader users? The wait is almost
over: let NVDA volunteer for you from November onwards.

The rest: let’s just say the ministers at NVDA land are holding
council every day, looking over this land and thinking about the
needs of citizens and planning the next great adventure for the
people of this land.

Personally, I’m excited to see what NVDA can do in opening
opportunities for many people, particularly for those who’re using
Windows 10. On behalf of people who’ve contributed to NVDA 2016.3
development, I wish you best in your endeavor as you use NVDA
2016.3 in various places (work, school, for fun and in unexpected
places). Also, NVDA 2016.3 release announcement will be my final
NVDA release announcement (on this list), as I believe the
community is ready to welcome new reporters.

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

text to mp3 with an nvda voice addon?

multi 85
 

Hi
I know there are programs that convert text to mp3, but they find and
choose the voice independently, so you must have the Sappi voice. Is
there instead some sort of way that I could use a program or a method
that could use the voices I have which are nvda addons and somehow use
my nvda reading settings to convert a text that I am reading into mp3
to use on an Ipod? Basically, these programs then sort of force you to
purchase a voice you like twice if you want to convert, once for NVDA,
and then another time for the converting program and your sappi stuff,
so I'm hoping there's a better solution?


Re: wondering where I can get other voices.

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Chris,

Note that as well as the information Gene provided, (and just to double check the first thing to try) - NVDA comes setup with the eSpeak NG voice.  If you go into the Synthesizer dialog - NVDA+CONTROL+S, there should also be "Microsoft Speech API Version 5" which gives you access to the voices included with Windows (Microsoft Anna from Windows 7, Microsoft David and Zira in later versions - in English at least).  After selecting Microsoft Speech API version 5, go into the Voice settings dialog - NVDA+CONTROL+V and you can choose which of the Microsoft voices to use (just as you can tweak eSpeak or whichever other voice is selected).

There is also a page at: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/ExtraVoices with a list of extra voices available, both paid and free.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi Nicholas,

There was an issue at one point with snapshot builds not auto-updating, but
the regular version should do update checks. It won't necessarily check the
moment an update comes out so if you are already using it and see the
notification that the new version is released, it might be that you see that
email before NVDA notifies you.

Re control+right arrow only moving by letter, rather than by word - Which
program are you using (and which version)? And does it work anywhere else?
control+right arrow / control+left arrow are fairly standard keys and should
work in most places you can type text.

Kind regards

Quentin.

2016.3





Dear citizens of the NVDA land:



Yes, it is official: one of the ministers of NVDA land, a certain Mr. Teh,
has just ordered the horsemen to announce a good news throughout the land:



NVDA 2016.3 is officially out:

http://www.nvaccess.org/post/announcing-nvda-2016-3-release/



So what's new, changed and fixed:



From RC2: no changes.



Highlights:



You can now disable individual add-ons.

NVDA is more cofmpatible with Windows 10 Anniversary Update
(version 1607). Among the things included are return of browse mode in Edge,
announcing newer UAC prompts, ability to navigate PDF documents in Edge and
more.

NVDA+F9/NVDA+F10 command behavior change is now official.

Color announcement has been simplified.

NVDA no longer announces "associated draft" in Outlook 2016.

NVDA can now announce line spacing in Microsoft Word.

Various enhancements.



A sneak preview at 2016.4: three game-changing features will be served as
part of Thanksgiving Party this November:



Ever wanted to hear line indentation via beeps? You can do that
starting in November.

Want to experience the next chapter in assistive technology
history? Or would you like to be one of the first ones to experience a
combination of a free screen reader and a low-cost braille display? Stay
tuned, as this combination will change your life in November.

Needed an assistant in persuading web or app developers about
accessibility needs of screen reader users? The wait is almost over: let
NVDA volunteer for you from November onwards.



The rest: let's just say the ministers at NVDA land are holding council
every day, looking over this land and thinking about the needs of citizens
and planning the next great adventure for the people of this land.



Personally, I'm excited to see what NVDA can do in opening opportunities for
many people, particularly for those who're using Windows 10. On behalf of
people who've contributed to NVDA 2016.3 development, I wish you best in
your endeavor as you use NVDA 2016.3 in various places (work, school, for
fun and in unexpected places). Also, NVDA 2016.3 release announcement will
be my final NVDA release announcement (on this list), as I believe the
community is ready to welcome new reporters.



Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: you are invited to upgrade to NonVisual Desktop Access 2016.3

Hi Nicholas,

There was an issue at one point with snapshot builds not auto-updating, but the regular version should do update checks.  It won't necessarily check the moment an update comes out so if you are already using it and see the notification that the new version is released, it might be that you see that email before NVDA notifies you.

Re control+right arrow only moving by letter, rather than by word - Which program are you using (and which version)?  And does it work anywhere else?  control+right arrow / control+left arrow are fairly standard keys and should work in most places you can type text.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Hi Heaven,
I fully agree with you. Only thing I notice with any updates is that it never tells me there are updates. If I don't check for updates, I don't know.
I did notice a problem with the previous version. When I pressed control plus right arrow when working in a document it only read letter for letter and not word by word. Is there a way to solve that?
Regards
Nicholas

Hi


I recently upgraded to NVDA 2016.3.  I would like to say thank you to all the developers who work on this project.  I have not found any bugs as yet and some wonderful improvements. 


Keep up the good work.

 

Kind regards

I downloaded this yesterday and associated draft not being spoken in outlook 2016 is much welcomed.  It drove me crazy.  I just want to say that from a JFW user’s perspective, you guys are almost there in converting me to a full NVDA user.  I’m finding now that especially for tabular information, NVDA works much better for me and I think my husband may be tempted to use it himself.  He just has the little issue of Station Playlist Studio and Station Playlist Streamer which will be the things that hold him back I suspect.

 

You guys rock!!!!!! As for testers, I’d be very pleased to help with any testing necessary.  I’m probably not as geeky as some testers on this list but as someone who is an extremely advanced computer user and uses their computer for working from home and for leisure purposes it’s in my best interests to ensure that screenreader accessibility is not just limited to those that can afford the expensive stuff.  I’m also very very excited to see what happens in November.  Cheap braille?  Mouthwatering!  Something I’ve longed for for a long time and given I can’t get any support from Access To Work because my turnover isn’t what they consider to be worthy, it looks like I’m saving for a braille display.

Much more responsive!

Roger Stewart
 

I've been using the latest nvda 2016.3 and I find it is much more responsive than the previous version. In particular, when I use a shortcut key to start a program, it opens nearly instantly while it used to take several seconds--sometimes up to 20 30 seconds to start and this is using a SSD! Guess the earlier nvda was slowing things down a bit. This is using Win 10 but not the latest update here as yet. In Win 7, I didn't notice this slowdown. Glad its working better now.


:-)


Thanks.


Roger


Re: whats new tutorial in nvda 2016.3:

Roger Stewart
 

Yes, if you use either Team Talk or Skype.

Thanks.

Roger
