Re: PDF to Word conversion tool

 

Well there is always codex
http://jscholes.net/project/codex.
that handles quite a few formats.

Therefore, I am in search of a simple and accessible PDF to Word

and pasting from PDF files to a new Word document.
If possible, I would also like a software that could combine or merge
PDF or Word files, as I have an individual file for each unit or
chapter which is not what I ideally desire. If there exists a
technique to quickly merge or compile the various chapter files in the
required order, that would simplify things too.
Thanks.

I have no idea why this should be there and why its not rendered as

Labs Web Page


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.

Re: PDF to Word conversion tool

 

I cannot speak to accessibility, but PDF Split and Merge (AKA PDFSAM) is an excellent tool and is open source.

If you try it out please report back on accessibility.  It is now in the new Universal App format on Windows.

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.

Re: espeak

Gene
 

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.

Hi Group,


If you have MS Word 2016, you can open the PDF document in Word and safe it as a Word document.  That is what I did for a book to be able to read it on the VR Stream II.

Hello:

    The program is usable.  The issue is that there are many who don't like ribbons!  I am no fan of ribbons!  However, I like to use MS Office and it is all ribbon based.  So, there is a big difference in a program not being accessible.  And, the pure hate one may have for the ribbon UI!

    Hope this clears up the usability issue with Nitro PDF.

As most of my school textbooks are available officially from our
national educational boards, I am downloading them for my academic use
directly from there.
However, they are in the PDF format, which is something that I dislike
and find navigation laggy and inconvenient in.
Therefore, I am in search of a simple and accessible PDF to Word
conversion tool, that will accelerate the process instead of copying
and pasting from PDF files to a new Word document.
If possible, I would also like a software that could combine or merge
PDF or Word files, as I have an individual file for each unit or
chapter which is not what I ideally desire. If there exists a
technique to quickly merge or compile the various chapter files in the
required order, that would simplify things too.
Thanks.

Re: Visual Studio add-on.

Ok, think have fixed those/the relevant errors - was my own mistake since used a regular expression search/replace to strip out line numbers when copied python script source from the gitHub page, but, think have now fixed all the missing number values on line endings.

Still not rendering too much to me - file menu, new, project, and it tells me it's the new project window, but, doesn't render any of the internal controls in it.

Stay well

Will check the logs. Do you think you could find a while and as the
last thing copy and paste the errors in this thread?

Ok, if look in the NVDA log, it's still throwing up errors, so seems
there might be an issue with how extracted source for the devenv.py file
to place in that path.

So, sorry, NVDA is still not rendering much to me in terms of VS.Net
2015, so can't help with anything relating to intellisense, etc.

Stay well

Sounds like a good place. Telling it off the top of my head. Cannot
check it on the machine I am writing now.
But, getting back to my oryginal problem: how can we turn off reading
item possition in the Intelisense popup? And then hearing all th etime
the window title when we leave the popup after picking the function /
whatever object...?

Ok, extracted python source.

Do I just place devenv.py in the following path?

c:\users\userName\appData\roaming\nvda\appModules

Thanks in advance

Hi Jacob,
The add-on is hosted at Github at the following URL:
https://github.com/ckundo/nvda/blob/master/source/appModules/devenv.py


The devenv.py is invluded by default with NVDA.

The new project wizard is quite OK ofr me. I am using Windows 10
64-bit. Or maybe I am skipping some elements without knowing they are
on the screen since NVDA is not getting them either.

I like VS for the Intelisense support, which is very convinient in
comparason to Eclipse. You just start typing and get the list of
suggestions without dancing by pressing Control+Space as it happens
with Eclipse.

What is this VS 2015 add-on referred to, or is it just included as
part
of NVDA itself?

Asking since also, at times, play around with VS.Net 2015 community
edition, but, for example, the new project dialogue doesn't seem to
get
read/rendered by NVDA 2016.1 at the moment, and NVDA doesn't always
want
to react to rest of environment either?

TIA

Dear Group,
I am currently working using Visual Studio 2015 - the latest
update.
Since Microsoft introduced the Visual Studio Community edition,
which
used to be Professional edition, we got a very nice IDE.
There is an NVDA add-on, which is installed by default that
enhances
NVDA and VS interoperability.
The features are rather complete, but I found 2 issues:
1. When Intelisense with code suggestions popup is read, NVDA keeps
reading the number of items in a edit combo / list, which can get
very
annoying / flustrating.
--- What is the way using code to silence reading this attribute?
NVDA
has the opption of not reading item possition information. Can we
apply it to individual controls?

2. When leaving the previously mentioned Intelisense popup, NVDA
keeps
reading the window type / title, which is way too verbose when you
are
coding and keep jumping from the editor to Intelisense all the
time.
--- Can we control this from the add-on code?

I am not familiar with Python on the daily basis, but can find
someone
to fix the code or do it myself if the changes are minor and can
simply follow the documentation and do little trial and error.

Thanks for any hints and tips,
Pawel
