Thanks Lindy,

It shouldn't be encrypted but I'll double check.  I didn't intend for it to be encrypted at any rate!

Regards

Quentin.

Hi Lindy,

I replied to the other thread on this topic and I'm glad you got the docx file working.  I did want to quickly ask - which instructions did you have trouble with?  If it's the instructions for the VR Stream I can't help, but if it's something in the book or it's associated documentation I can definitely look into it.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Putting Basic Training for NVDA manual on to DAISY player

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Lindy,

Sorry, I meant "Text Files", not notes.

Initially it didn't see the ePub file in my DTB folder either.  I just tried again and it did see it, read the title, gave a "Media error 1" then a "Book error 1" and then says 0 titles.  I'm just testing my SD card to make sure there isn't a physical problem with it, otherwise it's something to do with either the way the Stream reads ePub books or the specific book.

Regards

Quentin.

Hi Quentin

Why would one navigate to “Notes” to find a file in the $VRtext folder? In the case of the epub file, when I tried to paste it in to the dtb folder on the stream there was no response and no record of ie being on the VRstream in that folder.

cheers

Hi Lindy,

 

Theoretically the VR Stream should be able to read ePub files.  ePub is actually a lot more complex format than it seems from the outside.  I'm not 100% sure whether the issue is with the way the Stream reads ePub files, or the way I've created the ePub file.  I'll keep working on it, but for now I can confirm that the HTML version of the text reads fine, you need to place it in the $VRText folder, and navigate to "Notes" to find it.

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

I paid for and downloaded Basic Training for NVDA.Zip file and have been working through it.It recommends that the epub file should be put on to a DAISY book player so that one can listen to it and work through the activities on your PC.

Is this why it does not register on the VR stream’s $VR dtb folder when I try to paste it in with either JAWS or NVDA? I have not dealt with encrypted files before and would appreciate some advice/help.

Hi Gene,


In my previous reply, I made an error.  I meant to say, it probably has something to do with the type of character set used by some foreign languages and the incorrect rendering--either by Thunderbird or the screen reader/synthesizer voice.

Hi Gene,


When replying, the issue does not exist.  I don't see any odd characters in the place of spaces.  I am sure it is something to do with just how Thunderbird is rendering his original messages.  I have seen this a few times with some individuals located in foreign countries, so maybe it could be something to do with a font type.

Hi Rosemarie,

I hear that oddity with his messages too.  What is happening is that the spaces between words are some sort of unrecognizable character--unrecognizable to screen readers and certain synthesizers I would guess.  I think it may be because he is sending his messages from an IPhone or other IOS device.  It is interpreting his spaces between words as some sort of character.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

I want to let you know that I use unchecky to download many programs. Like someone said, it is not 100 percent at not downloading something you do not want, so you should still check to see if all of the check boxes are unchecked to make sure that you do not download something else besides the program you want. However, Unchecky has automatically unchecked the check boxes for other downloads every single time for me. Unchecky really helps. I would not be without it, because it has stopped so many toolbars and other stuff from downloading with my desired download. I would greatly recommend it. Take care, all.

Re: how to tell NVDA to read series of number in single digits.

David Moore
 

Here is the best way to have single digits read. When you are on the number, press num pad five twice to spell the word, but this time, it will say each digit of the number. That is it.

This works fine on ordinary numbers but ruins the speaking of currency amounts, so there is a trade off.

The following speech dictionary entry should do this:
Pattern: (\d)(?=\d)
Replacement: \1
Type: Regular Expression

Note that there is a blank space after the 1.

Re: NVDA GENERAL,

I came across a mini, fold-up USB keyboard at the one local flea-market - sort of informal shopping venue, with lots of little small stalls ranging across quite a wide range of target-markets, but, issue was that it would only fold out to roundabout 15cm wide, which wouldn't really be suitable for touch typing as such...<smile>

I generally just make sure I know the layout of the laptop's own keyboard - especially the insert key - just in case, and take it from there.

Stay well

If so, you should set your keyboard layout to "Laptop"

I should alter what I said.  I should say that, in reading the messages quoted under yours, I didn't have any problems reading the first two or three.  I didn't read further.  According to Ron's message, others appear to have problems reading one of these messages in their original form.  Unless the problem is solved, what happens if you issue the reply command and try to read the message?

Hi Rosemarie,

I hear that oddity with his messages too.  What is happening is that the spaces between words are some sort of unrecognizable character--unrecognizable to screen readers and certain synthesizers I would guess.  I think it may be because he is sending his messages from an IPhone or other IOS device.  It is interpreting his spaces between words as some sort of character.
