Alva Satelite driver

"René Ludwig
 

Hello,
i want to use an Alva Satelite with NVDA on a Windows 7-32bit system.
I found a thread on a beta driver that someone had posted there as an attachment but the file was not available anymore.
Is there still a download location for the driver. If not, which connection works best with BRLTTy? Serial or USB?
Thanks Rene


Sapi version of Acapela voices?

Matt Turner
 

Hi folks.

Anyone no if there's a sapi version?

I'd like to use those voices with balabolka.


Re: Switch synth addons problem

Mr. Wong Chi Wai <cwwong.pro@...>
 

Thanks for your reply.
I repeated the steps and look through the log, it said one of my synthesizer can not be found.
Below are what I guess:
I am using Hong Kong native version of NVDA 2014.4 and the Cantonese tts using is packed with the NVDA
switch sync is not part of the core and it don't have the permission to access that Cantonese tts.

I try switch sync on nvda 2016.2.21 by testing with microsoft tts only and it works.

Thanks.

No.
What did it do? Do you have an error in the log?

Hi,
I just downloaded the new addons Switch synth and tested out with my NVDA.
I follow what is stated by the addons page, to select slot by
ctrl+shift+nvda+1.
Then I pressed ctrl+shift+nvda+v to save the current setting, and it
echoed 'saved'
After that I pressed ctrl+shift+nvda+2, then I gointo the NVDA
synthesizer page to switch to another synthesizer, then I saved the
setting again.
However, after that I try pressing ctrl+shift+nvda+1, it didn't switch
back to the previous synthesizer.
Did I made anything wrong?
Any advice for that?
Thanks.

Re: Windows 10 infoormation

Gene
 

That is not what the original message said.  The original message did not say anything like, if your income is limited, don't buy a cheap computer.  No conditions were expressed.  It did not say nor imply anything of the sort.  I would have no argument if someone said that if you don't have much money, buying too cheap a computer may well cause disappointing slowness in performance. 
 
The message simply said, buy the best computer you can afford.  That is what I responded to.  But I can't respond to criticisms that don't tell me what you are criticizing.  Now that I finally know, I have address the specific criticism. 
 
I'm sorry if you thought I was saying something different than what I actually said.  But I was responding to the specific, clear, and unqualified statement that you should get the best computer you can afford. 
 
Yes, many blind people are on limited incomes.  But making a general statement like that addresses the comments to everyone.  And when writing to a list, everyone who is following the thread is being addressed.  I responded to the statement as written.  I am not a mind reader and if the original message was intended to say something else, I have no way of knowing that. 
 
As far as my performance as moderator is concerned, if either of you want to discuss it, please do so by using the contact the owner address and not, inappropriately, on the list itself. 
 
I hardly see how you can have much in the way of criticisms, since I have almost entirely let the list run itself.  I have only interveened when I believed something was getting out of hand, and I believe I have only moderated the list twice since I became a moderator. 
 
In future, if you are unhappy about something I say in a message or about something you think I said, please bring it up so it can be discussed.  I can't respond to something if I don't know what it is.

I agree. See here is what got my blood running. The money issue. You
dang well know Gene that most ofus blind folk live off the Government

maybe he can only afford a PC or laptop with not as much bells and

Re: Reading boxes in Microsoft Word

Kevin Huber
 

Thanks for the insight Quentin.
I will look at this document and see if I can make your suggestion work.
Kevin Huber

On 8/8/16, Quentin Christensen <quentin@nvaccess.org> wrote:
Text boxes are a bit fiddly in word. The easiest thing to do is actually
create a new text box (alt+n, x, enter) then press escape ONCE which takes
the focus out of the text in the new text box but leaves the text box
itself selected. Finally press TAB - this moves focus between any text
boxes and other objects (pictures etc) in the document.

If a text box is created "inline", it is possible to get to it with NVDA -
it will be announced as "slash" in the middle of the surrounding text.
When you get to that select it with shift+right arrow then you should be
able to read it and / or move to others. Most text boxes aren't created
inline - they're not by default and really it defeats the purpose of them
which is to have a box of text you can dump anywhere on the page.

I would recommend not using text boxes for anything anyone is creating, and
instead look at using tables or indent to position things.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Inability to work on Amazon site

 

Hi,

 

Actually, the same problems occur.  As I open the site and try to select Kindle store from the combo box in search options the form field/combo box does not work.  Also, even the sign-in link does not open.  This is strange as earlier when I used the other software this was done.  I hope not to go that way now.  Please help.

 

With best wishes,

 

Ketan

Sorry, can you be more specific?


Are you trying to access Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk?


What features would you like to access?


Thanks,


Re: Cannot open excel file from file folder on desktop

Hi, Chris,

 

The Excel program opens with a blank screen and will go no further. I believe it may be hanging due to a .dde error or something.

 

 

All the best,

Works OK on my machine.  Assuming the filetype has ben associated with Excel, what happens when you just press enter on the problem file?

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

Has anyone else experienced this problem? I am using Windows 10, Excel 2016 with NVDA 2016.2.1

 

I cannot open my excel spread sheets from a folder in “my Documents”. When I right click on the Excel file name (file with a .xlsx extension), and use “open with Microsoft excel”, Excel opens but with a blank screen and no sign of the file contents. Likewise, when I try to open the file from within Excel, I get a list of recent files but I cannot search for an existing file.

 

 

Any solutions?

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall
