Re: Accessible online survey creation tool

Hi Chris,
Actually, I am making good progress on making a survey form using
Google Forms. One question that I have for now is moving and changing
the order of the questions, i.e. moving them up and down. Ctrl + Shift
+ K/J is something I don't know when to press as there is not specific
focusable option for an item or option.
Please help me in that respect, otherwise I will try to finish the
survey form for now.
Thanks.

I would like to sincerely request you, or others, to please give me a
quick walkthrough of Google Forms or other accessible survey creation
services via any preferred medium. My contact details are all in my

I would truly appreciate any assistance.
Thanks.

Dear all,
I require to create an online survey about a certain potential
initiative and the amount of interest in it people may have, which may
include several question types - country combo box/dropdown, open
ended question edit box, radio button and check box, and an
introductory paragraph.
For this, I seek your advice and recommendations of a free online
survey creation service that could fulfill my purpose.
I do not need very advanced functionality, simply basic survey
creation, sharing and results analysis features would suffice.
I would really appreciate any assistance any of you may be willing to
give!
Thanks.

Re: Issues With Number Processing or Display On Creative Labs Web Page

Antony Stone
 

There is no ^ symbol on the page (at least, not within the prices we're
discussing).

The HTML source code for the price line is:

<span class="saleprice red">$369<sup>99</sup>&nbsp;</span>

So, what they are showing is a dollar sign, the three digits 3 6 9, and then
as a superscript following that, two more digits 9 9.

I can't say I'm surprised that NVDA would read this as five consecutive digits
3 6 9 9 9, but there is no symbol of any sort between the dollar amount the
the cents.


I hope that helps,


Antony.

Hi Group,

I am wondering if anyone else is having this problem. When I visit the
below web page on the Creative Laqs site, I get oddities with the
prices for the various products. For example, many of the prices are
ridiculously high such as $16999 for a set of small portable speakers.
When examining it closely, it seems these figures are deleting a
decimal point and replacing it with the first digit after the decimal
point. So the above example should actually read $16.99. This has
happened a number of times over the years. Here is the page.

at max, is what I've been using for four years now. Admittedly, I stick
to the Linda voice, as it's the best female one in my opinion, and the
male ones sound a bit jarring on max inflection sometimes, but it's
still much better than Speech Platform or Mary TTS or Newance or Ivona.
I don't want flat voices, especially when reading fiction with NVDA. And
I don't use super-speed, but stick with the default rate of 30. Much
faster and it becomes unintelligible.

As I recall, the site accepts presentations from a wide variety of people. it may not be practical for the site to influence how presenters do this, although I suppose they could place something on their site or send e-mails to people who have made presentations in the past regarding what they might do in future. Whhen I do presentations, although I leave my synthesizer at a fast speed, I repeat anything the synthesizer says that I think is important for the listener to be sure is understood. That is my compromise. I really dislike listening to slow speech and this allows the synthesizer to be fast but the listener will know what was said that is necessary.

Thanks.

I don't want to appear daft here, but in typing that into Google or anywhere else come to that, we get a free demo, and then a paid for app, or a cracked copy, which is also not to be encouraged. No sign of a portable totally free version.

Hi,
I found Nitro difficult to download and impossible to install, and the
Oxillion Document Converter software, another recommendation that I
got has worked for me.
Thanks for the suggestion all the same!
Thanks.

Hi Group,


I almost never used Internet Explorer. I tried this number issue on the
referenced page with Internet Explorer 11 from Windows 8.1. It still
shows the same misrepresentation as does NVDA, but for some reason, a
number of synthesizers pronounce it differently. With punctuation
turned to all, you hear a price which using individual character
(left/right arrow keys) movement, shows the same for example, $16.99
reads $16999. However, the voices/synthesizer say (spelling this out
for clarification) dollars 16 ninety nine.


This is interesting and I'm afraid I don't have the technical knowledge
to determine just what is happening.

Yes I have that issue with a computer site in firefox.
I think what is happening is that decimal points are just not being
rendered.
Ie if something says it is 30.00 it will say 3000.
if say something is 20000.44
you will get 1600044.
If the price seems to high, you may try to manually add in the points,
sometimes it works well enough sometimes but more often not.
Its like some things that are for old ie and other things who knows.
But the pages are not getting their points rendered right and have been
in firefox for a while now.

Hi Group,


I am wondering if anyone else is having this problem. When I visit the
below web page on the Creative Laqs site, I get oddities with the
prices
for the various products. For example, many of the prices are
ridiculously high such as $16999 for a set of small portable speakers.
When examining it closely, it seems these figures are deleting a
decimal
point and replacing it with the first digit after the decimal
point. So
the above example should actually read $16.99. This has happened a
number of times over the years. Here is the page.

GAH, I hate Speech Platform! No matter what I do, they won't pronounce
the "n" in my name! I have tried every possible combination of letters
in the speech dictionary to get it to say my name, but when I try it's
like "LOLNOPE still gonna mess it up". And Espeak, with the inflection
at max, is what I've been using for four years now. Admittedly, I stick
to the Linda voice, as it's the best female one in my opinion, and the
male ones sound a bit jarring on max inflection sometimes, but it's
still much better than Speech Platform or Mary TTS or Newance or Ivona.
I don't want flat voices, especially when reading fiction with NVDA. And
I don't use super-speed, but stick with the default rate of 30. Much
faster and it becomes unintelligible.

Often I'd prefer say, the speech platform Hazel voice to read
documents to me, but the irritating number of words it needs to have
in its dictionary to sound right is quite a problem, indeed in nvda
and other software, that and the Microsoft sapi voices do have an
annoying tendency to expand inappropriate abbreviations into the US
standard not the UK ones.

hi
Espeak is probably the best open source synthesizer available!
Definitely a keeper!
Just my preference, I don't care for the "natural" sounding
synthesizers. It seems like it takes them way to long to say the
same thing espeak can say in a few seconds.
Thanks!

I'm not going to rise to this bait. Nothing is wrong with it but if you had read recent threads the legal one does sound rough and odd on some peoples systems with nvda.
Just because I don't like it does not make it bad.

I've started this thread as I want to say something specific about this. To
me at least this sounds very much like Eloquence UK English, so those out
there that seem to have issues with the paid for version of that synth,
might like to test this as a compromise.
Please lets not have more my synth is better than yours threads here. I'm
merely stating an opinion, and it only reflects how my ears perceive it.
