Re: Speech on demand addon for NVDA, and a bug in Microsoft office

 

Hi Quentin
speech on demand works similar to Toggle Speech Mode command in NVDA. As you know, it'll temporary turns speech off it case such as recordign streaming.
abdul muhamin, press NVDA+S for that feature. We have three mode: speak, beeps and talks.
Let try
Cuong!

More over, I’m using ms office 2016 pro, with latest NVDA, and I’ve enabled UI automation, after opening any document in word, NVDA says read-only before reading a line, I think it’s a bug, and needed to be fix, because with UI automation enabled, NVDA response more better.

FW: [nvda-addons] Add-on Updater will require NVDA 2019.3 starting March 10, 2020, a speicla change fro alpha snapshot users

 

Hi,

For anyone using Add-on Updater (which should be majority of you by now), please read the below notice to the end.

Subject: [nvda-addons] Add-on Updater will require NVDA 2019.3 starting March 10, 2020, a speicla change fro alpha snapshot users

 

Hi all,

 

A few weeks ago I announced to the NVDA community that Add-on Updater will be the last add-on from me to require NVDA 2019.3. This decision was made in consideration for people who may need to use 2019.2.1 and earlier a little longer.

 

But the countdown has begun: after March 10, 2020 (the day Add-on Updater 20.03 is scheduled to be released, which happens to be 30 days after 2019.3 is released), Add-on Updater will require NVDA 2019.3. No exceptions, no extensions.

 

Also, a special change will be implemented in consideration for people using alpha snapshots: starting from Add-on Updater 20.03, those using alpha snapshots (master branch) will no longer receive incompatibility prompts if trying to update add-ons in most cases. The only time you’ll get an incompatibility notice when updating add-ons through Add-on Updater will be when NV Access updates minimum API version for all add-ons (currently set at 2019.3) and the add-on in question does not cover the updated API version in the compatibility range (minimumNVDAVersion <= newAPIVersion <= lastTestedNVDAVersion). This change is destined for alpha snapshot users only – those using betas, RC’s, and stable releases will continue to receive incompatibility notices if an add-on update isn’t compatible with latest NVDA version as seen internally (versionInfo.version_*).

 

Cheers,

Joseph

Had you restarted the computer when you were having this problem?  After restarting the computer did it still recur?  If it's working for Roger, the only other thing I can think of is are you using any add-ons and does restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled help?

Hi all!

 

Just ran across something a few days ago when I installed the latest nvda update.  I’m a winamp user.  When you hit s for shuffle or r for repeat, you should hear “on” or “off.”  It doesn’t say anything but “off.”  Weird!  I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling winamp.  I always get the light version.  I’m guessing there haven’t been any updates since 5.63.  Radionomy hasn’t done anything with it as far as I know.  Maybe I’m wrong and that’s the issue.  Anyway, like I said, it’s a pretty minor thing in the grand scheme of things but I just wanted someone to know.

Re: Editing of Windows onecore voices

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Marco,

You'll need to put your feedback in to Microsoft - the OneCore voices are built into Windows, NVDA just accesses them, it doesn't control how OneCore voices adjust pronunciation etc.  You could talk to the Disabilitry Answer Desk at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/disability-answer-desk

Kind regards

Quentin.

I looked at the manifest for the voices I have installed, and it says that the last tested NVDA version is 2099.4, which does not exist. So, I'd assume these haven't been tested to work with the latest version as of yet.

The file is an MP3.  If you paste the address into your browser, then change the 0 at the end to a 1, and then press enter, the file will download from Drop Box without opening a Drop Box page.  People should make this change before they send a link they intend to be downloaded without Dropbox opening a page.

As far as I know, to install an add-on in a portable version, you can't just press enter on it.  The whole point of a portable program is to run and not make any changes to the system it is running on.  If it told Windows to install add-ons with the extension used, that would be making a change in the registry. 

I'm quite sure that you must use Manage Add-ons in the tools submenu of NVDA when installing to a portable version.

Yes, of course...


If you have an installed version of NVDA, even running a portable
version of NVDA, pressing enter in a *.nvda-addon file, the add-on will
be installed in the portable version.


If you do not have any NVDA version installed, to install a add-on, go
to add-on manager, go to install button and choose the add-on you want
to install...

Re: my configuration is almost complete with 2019.3

I don't have an installed version so I have to use the Manage add-ons option in NVDA.  I'm very curious about what I asked before, how Windows knows what version to install to, the portable or installed version if you press enter.

Well, I guess I didn't know better, but I install add-ons to a portable version in the same way as with an installed version. I just press ENTER on the .nvda-addon and it installs to the running version. Updating add-ons works the same way for me.

As far as I know, to install an add-on in a portable version, you can't just press enter on it.  The whole point of a portable program is to run and not make any changes to the system it is running on.  If it told Windows to install add-ons with the extension used, that would be making a change in the registry. 
I'm quite sure that you must use Manage Add-ons in the tools submenu of NVDA when installing to a portable version.

Yes, of course...


If you have an installed version of NVDA, even running a portable
version of NVDA, pressing enter in a *.nvda-addon file, the add-on will
be installed in the portable version.


If you do not have any NVDA version installed, to install a add-on, go
to add-on manager, go to install button and choose the add-on you want
to install...
