Which voices do you use? The version of Eloquence I am using is nout out for NVDA 2019.3. I find Espeak very difficult to use and don't have options besides the 1 Core voices.

You might like to try the rate boost. If it’s turned on NVDA will speak very fast. If using laptop, hold down control, shift, NVDA and use left or right arrow to navigate to rate boost option. Press up arrow to turn it on, down arrow to turn it off.

I am I am not sure what the commands for desktop are.

Is there a way to increase the speed of the Windows 1 Core Voices while using them with NVDA? Even set at 100%, the rate is still extremely slow.

Ok, my bad - think it might have only been included in the 2019.3 beta version - thus intended for NVDA 2019.3, but, honestly, also not something I pay attention to, since barely ever use any of the natural sounding voices.

Re: NVDA 2019.3 Beta 1 is out

 

Hello Quentin,

Recently I was thinking about it and I've decided to ask/suggest what I was thinking. It is related to the version number for the next release of NVDA. Yes, it is planned to be 2019.3, but considering that it will probably come out in early 2020, isn't it better to change it to 2020.1? And on second thought (which came just as I was writing this) - maybe it is not such a good idea to do such a change. Main reason against - it is the fact that add-ons have compatibility flags in their templates and the change suggested by me will brake those compatibility flags (the add-ons in practice will be compatible, but the compatibility flags in them will indicate otherwise (and the flags are what NVDA checks add-ons for compatibility)). So, we might as well leave the NVDA version to be 2019.3, even if it will be released probably in early 2020.

Robert: Feel free to try the beta out, even if you are using non-standard add-ons, at least you can work out what will work and what won't and maybe find an alternative way for some things or convince add-on authors to update (and ideally publish on the community page - unless they.... wouldn't meet the legal requirements, shall we say, in which case, do consider finding an alternative :))

Re Remote, there are arguments for and against that.  For, as you say, means new users don't need to install an update.  Against is we often get asked by companies installing NVDA about security and what data NVDA can or does send.  Currently, it's quite easy to answer, as the program sends very little information and no personal information or speech content or what the user is doing.  If we included Remote in the core, we'd need to work out how to keep everyone happy.  I'm not saying we can't or wouldn't, but it won't be in 2019.3 (not least of which because aside from whether we agree or not, we don't tend to add too many new features after we release a beta - from now on, work on 2019.3 will primarily be around stability and addressing any issues which get reported.  New features will still be worked on, but for Alpha releases looking towards inclusion in 2019.1.

Hello Quentin. I have downloaded the NVDA 2019.3.1 Beta release, and I have noticed a huge improvements over the 2019.2 one. Speech refactor is certainly a wonderful thing and I applaud speech refactor very much. However, there is one suggestion that could be included in the next betas. And that is the ability to have NVDA say, copied to clipboard, cut to clipboard, without the need for an add-on, and the second is I’d like to see the remote functionality built into the core of NVDA so that those of us who train on NVDA like myself can help clients without them having to install add-ons. Thanks, Sky.

Re: file explorer

It wasn’t closed. I know this because when I turned on Jaws it was there. What happens is that when I shift tab from the list view I seem to be in a blank. If I up or down arrow NVDA says nothing. If I shift tab again I’m in the search field. So the problem only seems to be in NVDA.

Re: just became a blind mice megamall member

You may be able to get away with tabbing through a form in forms mode and you may want to try.  But it is often much better to be in browse mode and down arrow through an unfamiliar form.  There may be information in between the fields you might or would want to know such as the format to use wen entering information in a field.  Also, forms don't necessarily read descriptive information such as name or address if you just tab. 
 
Technically, to be accessible, it may be that forms should read such information but there are a lot of forms that are completely usable but not technically accessible.

Subject: [nvda] Important release note: NVDA 2019.3 add-ons from Joseph Lee to hit the air in waves, starting January 1, 2020

 

Hi all,

 

Before I close my “shop” i.e. add-on development for 2019 (apart from compatibility list), one last announcement on add-on releases in 2020 and beyond:

 

Starting on January 1, 2020 (or a few hours before), NVDA 2019.3 optimized add-ons from me will be released to stable channel. This will be done in waves, starting and ending with Add-on Updater.

 

Release waves:

 

  1. A few hours prior to new year: Add-on Updater and Virtual Review (Virtual Review is leaving my nest i.e. handing it over to the community then).
  2. January 1, 2020: Resource Monitor, StationPlaylist, Windows 10 App Essentials.
  3. January 3, 2020: Easy Table Navigator, Golden Cursor, ObjPad, SystrayList (all of these are leaving my nest then).
  4. January 6, 2020: Control Usage Assistant, Enhanced Touch Gestures, GoldWave, Object Location Tones
  5. Seven days after NVDA 2019.3 stable version is released: Add-on updater requiring NVDA 2019.3

 

For some add-ons, download links for old releases will be made available until March 1, 2020 (no extensions after that). For add-ons leaving my nest, the dates listed above will be the day when last versions from me will be released (and for developers, no more commits from me regarding code for these add-ons after that; I’ll provide repository links when the final releases happen).

 

A few important notes:

 

  1. If you are using Add-on Updater: after installing the next version (mandatory), you’ll see a pop-up message telling you that some add-ons may not be compatible with upcoming NVDA 2019.3. You’ll be advised to contact add-on authors (you can view contact info for authors by opening Add-ons Manager and looking at “author” column for concerned add-ons). A button will be shown that’ll open a page in community add-ons site listing latest compatibility list.
  2. If you are using Add-on Updater to check for add-on updates: once 2019.3 add-ons come out and you are using 2019.2.1 or earlier, Add-on Updater will refuse to install new releases. This is actually a good thing in that concerned add-ons are ready for 2019.3 or later. The converse is not true: you have 2019.3 yet the updated add-on does not advertise support for 2019.3, that’s a bad thing and you SHOULD contact authors about it (and Add-on Updater will still refuse to install the updates concerned). This applies to almost all add-ons, including Add-on Updater itself (exceptions include Enhanced Aria, Focus Highlight, and Screen Curtain, all of which have their add-on features included in NVDA 2019.3).
  3. After installing 2019.3 optimized add-ons, you cannot go back. This is especially the case for add-ons that are now powered by Python 3 such as StationPlaylist.
  4. Various add-on entries on community add-ons website will start showing “NVDA 2019.3 and beyond” message in compatibility statement after Christmas (they concern my add-ons). Some of them will show changelogs for upcoming releases, while others will add a new “download older releases” (or similarly named) link around the same time.
  5. At least for my add-ons, on March 1, 2020, Python 2 versions of my add-ons (or ones advertising support for older NVDA releases except Screen Curtain) will be removed from community add-ons website. This should give some of you time to archive old add-on installers. In case of Screen Curtain, it is now a legacy add-on.
  6. For Windows 10 App Essentials users: version 20.01.x is the last release to support Version 1809 (October 2018 Update).

 

Thanks. Early Merry Christmas and a happy New Year (or as many would say, “happy holidays”).

Cheers,

Joseph

Re: Add-on for marked-up texts

 

Cordelia,

          Luke has said the functionality of the add-on referred to has been absorbed into NVDA itself.  While I certainly have never used it, someone must have and probably still is actively using it.

          This isn't to argue, but if the functionality is now included in NVDA itself then the discussion should shift to how it's used, as an add-on would no longer be relevant.

           Someone else who's actually doing what you're seeking to do will have to jump in at this point.

Re: Add-on for marked-up texts

Cordelia Scharpf
 

Thank you all for answering  my question and discussing the pros and cons of (not) keeping old(er) versions of such add-ons. I had hoped to learn whether such an add-on was available  for NVDA (2019.2.1 or later) to facilitate working as a writer-cum-copyeditor.

 

The question now is whether such an add-on would be useful for many of us or just for a very select few. What workaround might we have, or does anybody know of a good way working with NVDA to accomplish the tasks at hand?

 

Besst,

Cordelia

It is very hard to think of a reason to have preserved it.

Not for me, it isn't.   There have been plenty of examples here of individuals using much older versions of NVDA for a variety of reasons.  It takes no effort whatsoever to move something that already exists to an archive from which those who might need it can get it.

And that applies to many, many things, not just NVDA add-ons.  I've had many occasions where having access to the obsolete was very, very useful.

Re: addons

 

I don't know of any, but you can search for highlighted text in MS-Word (and that's what I'm presuming the environment is):

There was also a topic in May:  https://nvda.groups.io/g/nvda/topic/please_help_me_about/31523604

An issue is open in GitHub related to this as well:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/5866
