Re: NV Speech Player and Add On Updater

Quentin Christensen
 

We didn't change the way it works from the earlier version, simply updated the code to work with Python 3.  The behaviour should be the same as it used to be.

Re: NVDA and MS word

Quentin Christensen
 

Have you got any Word add-ons?  Or programs which might be trying to do something with Word?  I haven't encountered the issue you're describing myself.  I'm using Office 365.

triple talk and NVDA

Dan Thompson
 

Greetings to everyone,

I have been using my external triple talk with NVDA for a few years now.  But sometime in the last few updates, NVDA won’t work with the triple talk.  I checked under speech settings but the choice isn’t there anymore.  The drivers are still on the computer because the triple talk still works with JAWS.  Can someone give some suggestion how to get triple  talk back in as a choice?  Thanks in advance.

 

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

I go about it by pressing Enter on the Emoticon I’d like, and no results; by tabbing once to the OK button and nothing happens either. Any ideas?

Re: NVDA automatically switches between two synthesizers

Jacob Kruger
 

Probably not relevant, but, maybe try going into NVDA voice settings - NvDA key + V - and, tab over to automatic language switching checkbox and try turning it off? After that, there's also anotehr checkbox for automatic dialect switching, and, while neither of these should specifically switch synthesizers - don't think so anyway - maybe try turning them off to see if that makes a difference?


Stay well

Hello guys, Hi

Do you have any Configuration Profiles defined for the affected apps?

 

Cheers

Chris
I'm facing a weird issue with NVDA. It automatically switches between two synthesizers. For example, if I'm using Windows One Core, then NVDA will switch to E speak by itself as soon as I interact with any of the Windows's application s or any word/text file. To fix this I have to reselect the synthesizer of my choice and restart NVDA. The issue remains when I restart thee computer. I'm using the latest version of Windows 10 and NVDA 19.2.1. If anyone could help, it would be great.

You probably have a config profile. If you don't want one, delete it.

If you do, then go read the docs to understand how they work, and how absolutely broken the design is.

Martin O'Sullivan
 

Hi

 

When I bring up the Elements List using Insert and F7, in Slack. the links section is empty.  I am using the Slack app, and not the website.  This was working fine until this morning.

Re: 2019.3.1, random stops during say all.

Actually, apparently this has something to do with the speech history
addon? On my end, at least. If you look on Github, there's a pull
request that fixes it. Just tested it myself, can confirm that it
works.

For users of online conferencing systems: do report accessibility problems, add-on authors standing by to help

 

Hello all,

 

I hope you are taking advice from public health officials and reputable sources as we navigate this difficult moment in history. As always, please do wash your hands and take other precautions. And please, please, please, unless you have to, do NOT buy emergency supplies all at once.

 

Onto the matter at hand: I know that many workplaces and schools have or are planning to deploy online conferencing systems such as Zoom. Because there may be accessibility issues with some of these systems when using with NVDA, I have requested a community-wide help from NVDA add-ons regarding accessibility concerns. If you do encounter accessibility problems, do let developers know, and if you want folks to write you a quick add-on or two, please don’t hesitate to let the NVDA community know. The last thing the community needs to hear is someone struggling even more due to inaccessible online conferencing systems.

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph P.S. I have resumed add-on development work, but plan to provide assistance for conferencing system users if requested.
