Well there add-ons for SPL now with NVDA. Joseph wrote that add-on. So
he can play that funky music right LOL!

has the little issue of Station Playlist Studio and Station

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

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/

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: text to mp3 with an nvda voice addon?

 

hi.
download balabolka, install sapi5 version of espeak and use it for free.
but it records as wave format and you should convert it in to .mp3.
its very fast, free and multi languages!
you can open all kind of formats with it without any problem,
for example: even if you dont install adobe reader and microsoft
office, you can open pdf and word document with it.

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.

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

I would like to know where I can get other voices for NVDA?  I know this comes up a lot, and I apoligize, but I’ve had NVDA for a while now, and love it, but would like some other voices to use.
