Hmmm the only thing I had to do is replace my espeakdata with the older espeak data so espeak says ed so it doesn't sound like id.
To be honest, espeak ng sounds a lot less squashed now however to be honest I really like how the old voice sounds, thank god I have a dropbox with the old espeak data files else I'd go mad!

I’m not sure if this is standard but my new NVDA has a nice touch. I changed the voice from Ava to Lee. Then I went back to the Word document I was editing and began to move line by line. the Allison voice did the reading of text and Lee read page numbers.

I actually really like this. It’s similar to how I have my Mac set up. Having more than one voice makes long hours at the computer far less tiring.

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.

Subject: [nvda] you are invited to upgrade to NonVisual Desktop Access 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/ <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: NVDA 2016.3 and Speech hub

 

Well you can still download java 7 if you need it however to be honest you should always use the latest java.
If you go to java.com or mess on oracle.com you can with a lot of mucking about do the older java versions its just when updating you will have to check for other versions all the time, java 7 is not updated anymore thiss stuff really stays with those that write the hub.
I think speakon does that.
I often spend time mucking round getting the admin files for remotes and backup purposes but to get those you need to click downloads, click development then java sdk, then java runtime.
Then select the version I usually have the version it has the latest then another version over the recomended, find the binary, click yes to the right licence, download the x86 and x64 not iftw exe files then run those, and well you get the idea.
It can be done but not by mortals and not easily.
You should be able to go to java.com and just install for the archetecture you are using but you will have to run your 32 and 64 bit brouser apps to load both.
After thats all installed, you then have to update and you can from java itself or from the java.com site and it just works or is supposed to.
A lot of these people avoid such issues by including a coppy of ujava vm to run their apps.
Sometimes I just coppy my coppy over it all but to be honest I am not your average mortal.
I am not an imortal but I am close to that status.
Anyway for standard users it can be done but oracle changes its site and it can take you upwards of an hour to et what you want.

Hi


As I said I maintain SpeechHub, No new features since July 2015 but I
make sure everything works as I use it myself.


I have tried SpeechHub with the NVDA latest version 2016.3 and it
works fine.


Assuming you installed SpeechHub and have installed the NVDA add-on
supplied with the installer (instructions on the website) it should work.

It works well with Java 8 (Java 7 is insecure if you have it, you
should remove it anyway).
A problem encountered by some people is with their firewall. SpeechHub
is an internal server and you need to make sure that Java is allowed
to communicate.

If anybody has a problem, you are welcome to contact me at:

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

 

I have noticed that office in fact a lotof stuff updates in the background.
This is fine generally but sometimes you don't know till it changes, mozilla stuff does this.
With some stuff I can manually check on the update days which thank gods just happen in ms case and others to be wednesdays my time and fridays can to but who knows to be honest.
For my part I am just happy updates are lite and have been quite lite for the last 2 weeks as its enabled me to do a lot of extra things I otherwise wouldn't have done.

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?

It automatically allerted when I started 2 systems with nvda on another I think it would have once nvda was restarted but it didn't then again as soon as I got the email I got the update so maybe it would have eventually.

Hi Chris


the following link might help you. These are for paid versions and also free ones that I have come across or people have let me know about.  The link to this page is http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/how%20to%20install%20additional%20nvda%20components.html

You should be able to jump down by heading to the syn section.


There might be other stuff you might find of interest on other pages as well to do with NVDA and other blindness related stuff.

My NVDA did do the automatic upgrade notification and upgraded just fine save for the fact that even though speak words was checked, no words were spoken initially when typing. NVDA would speak the sentence though I think. I did fix this by going into preferences, unchecking the box for speak words and checking it again. 

I’m not sure if this is standard but my new NVDA has a nice touch. I changed the voice from Ava to Lee. Then I went back to the Word document I was editing and began to move line by line. the Allison voice did the reading of text and Lee read page numbers.

Strange in that I got no automatic notification that this update was available. This has always worked in the past. I was able to manually check for updates and it came up and I updated just fine but just wondering why it didn't automatically alert for me.

Thanks.

Re: NVDA 2016.3 and Speech hub

Life My Way
 

this is what i get when trying to install the speech hub program that installs fine but when i try and install the add on this is what i get.

Java Virtual Machine Launcher
Error: Registry key 'Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment'\CurrentVersion'has value '1.8', but '1.7' is required.
OK



Please advise.

Hi


As I said I maintain SpeechHub, No new features since July 2015 but I make sure everything works as I use it myself.


I have tried SpeechHub with the NVDA latest version 2016.3 and it works fine.


Assuming you installed SpeechHub and have installed the NVDA add-on supplied with the installer (instructions on the website) it should work.

It works well with Java 8 (Java 7 is insecure if you have it, you should remove it anyway).
A problem encountered by some people is with their firewall. SpeechHub is an internal server and you need to make sure that Java is allowed to communicate.

If anybody has a problem, you are welcome to contact me at:

Hello Joseph.

Quick observations on my end.

1. The message content of the Mail app still reports "edit" after

every press of down/up arrow.

2. The add-on help file seems to be broken. That is, there is no

proper structure like headings and links.

Windows 10 App Essentials 16.09.1A and 20160906-dev snapshot, a word about this add-on for new subscribers

 

Hi everyone,

 

For Windows 10 users: Windows 10 App Essentials 16.09.1A is now available, fixing an issue with readme document. Also, snapshot for September 6th is now live, featuring a fix for a problem where NVDA was talking gibberish while talking to Cortana (there are more cases like this, which will be fixed in the coming weeks). The add-on can be found at:

http://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/wintenApps.en.html

 

Snapshot changelog:

·        Cortana and gibberish: When you press Cortana key (Windows+C/Windows+Shift+C (the latter for Anniversary Update)) from Cortana’s search window, you  would hear NVDA speak gibberish. This is no longer the case. There are other cases where NVDA may speak gibberish (I’m investigating a couple of them), and because of academics, I may not be able to get to it in the next few weeks.

 

For new subscribers: Windows 10 App Essentials is an add-on that enhances support for Windows 10, as well as providing app modules for some universal apps (newer style apps). Features include:

 

·        Playing a sound when search suggestions appear in various search fields such as in Settings app.

·        Support for time picker such as those found in Alarms and Clock app.

·        Playing location beep in maps app.

·        Improved support for Weather, Skype Preview, Microsoft Edge and other apps, as well as providing workarounds for Mail, Calendar and other apps.

·        Announcing text responses from Cortana.

·        And many others.

 

As for snapshots: this is not an NVDA snapshot. For add-ons I write (currently there are six), I use the term “snapshot” to refer to beta-quality development builds. Besides Windows 10 App Essentials (sometimes called WinTenApps), my other add-on brainchildren are:

 

·        Resource Monitor: announce system information and resource usage.

·        Enhanced Touch Gestures: adds needed touch commands to NVDA.

·        Easy Table Navigator: brings table layer commands to NVDA.

·        GoldWave: Support for a popular audio editor.

·        StationPlaylist Studio: brings support for SPL (and I’d say one of the most powerful add-ons at the moment besides WinTenApps); the upcoming version is currently under beta testing at the moment.

 

Although I don’t develop the following anymore, the below add-on got me started in contributing code to NVDA:

 

·        Control Usage Assistant (now developed by Derek Riemer): brings context-sensitive help to NVDA world.

 

P.S. The name “Windows 10 App Essentials” pays tribute to Windows Live Essentials.

 

Cheers,

Joseph

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

Reading Table Cells Without Moving From the Cell you are currently on

Kerry Fielding <littlemisslovely1973@...>
 

Hi folks.  Is it possible to read a cell in a different column without moving from the one you are on.  This feature would definitely be of use to me if it exists.  I am constantly revising my items for sale on ebay and looking at numbers of watchers etc and there are at least 10 columns to this table.  The first column in each row is a check box which I can tick and delete a whole lot of items at once when I’ve finished any editing. However, there are certain pieces of information that I want to know, for example, when the item ends, or in the case of ebay messages, who has sent the item.  I’d like to be able to read this without moving to the cell which is 6 columns away from the check box.

 

I hope this makes sense.

 

Kerry

Looks like the snapshot is for me then. I get that sometimes.

Hello Joseph.
If the fix will not be available in a stable version for now, could you try
to add it to the next version? Also, what will be in the next snapshot?

Hello Christo
Which version of Windows are you using? I get no errors here, all be it with
a stable NVDA version. The weather app works great!

Hello Gene.
It also happens in say all. It won't help if you create a dictionary entry
or configuration profile. A dictionary entry is not app specific at the
moment, and it might cause confusion.

Hi Joseph

I don't know if you saw, but a few days ago I wrote that the latest
version of the add-on does not work properly in the Win 10 Weather app.
When I disable the app, the Weather app works quite well. If I
activate it and then go into the Weather app, whenever I move around,
I get that dong sound you get with the NVDA snapshots. I am using the
latest NVDA snapshot.

Kind regards

Hello Joseph.
Quick observations on my end.
1. The message content of the Mail app still reports "edit" after
every press of down/up arrow.
2. The add-on help file seems to be broken. That is, there is no
proper structure like headings and links.

Hi all,



I'm delighted to announce the release of Windows 10 App Essentials
16.09.1, a minor bug fix release for WinTenApps 16.09.x. The new

Changelog:



* Appearance of suggestions for search fields is now brailled
(mostly for apps such as Settings).

name field and Mail's message content.

* In Maps, fixed an issue where one could not use TAB key to move
between controls.



Cheers,

Re: Microsoft Mark synthesizer voice

Andre Fisher
 

At the moment, NVDA doesn't support any mobile voices. This might be
due to regressions, as Next snapshots had this enhancement.

What you can do, at your own risk is download the SAPI5 mobile add-on
from Jeff's site. The link is:

Hi,


I may be wrong but I thought there was some discussion about the Mark
voice and it being available with NVDA. I am running NVDA 2016.3 and
the Windows anniversary update with all updates since then and Mark is
still not showing up in the list of voices for me. It does show David
and Zira though.


I checked and Mark is available in Narrator. I'd sure like to use it
since it is much easier on my ears with my hearing loss.


Any idea why I can't use Mark?

Re: Microsoft Mark synthesizer voice

 

His,
Ah yes - it was pulled due to issues. Luckily, there is an add-on from one of the experts that adds this voice back.
