I guess a look at the message source might give a reason. its hard to advise without seeing the messages. it has to be something in the email software being used to receive messages or we would all have the problem.

Re: NVDA skype group

 

Ok I have joined the skype group.
well now we have one of those to its good to expand our communications.
We should add this group with all our other community groups for nvda, win10 and its subs etc to the community pages under lists or groups or something I don't know but we should add all these things somewhere.

It appears to be isolated when NVDA is using IE or Edge as I am not having this in Chrome.

 

Here is my code for our HTML5 video player:

 

            <video id="view-video" controls>

                <source src="#" type="#">

                <span aria-hidden="true">Your browser does not support the video tag.</span>

            </video>

 

Despite putting a <span> with an aria-hidden=”true”, NVDA will still read “Your browser does not support the video tag.” while the video is loading.  Once the video is loaded, it will play.  For some reason when using IE, NVDA will not ignore that text.  It does not read it when using Chrome nor does VoiceOver read it. Is this an old bug that didn;t get fully fixed. I remember an issue aria-hidden in NVDA 2014 but thought is was fixed in 2015.

Re: Changing from espeak?

Yes indeed, I think there are almost as meny Espeak lovers as haters. and as has been said many times, the voice one usees is very very personal. Just listen to the range on some of the cool blind tech podcasts to hear this.

My position however is that the current default for new users seems to be not really that good. I'd aim for one with a deeper less sing song delivery myself, but then I'm UK English and that may well not be valid elsewhere.

I've been out of the loop for a bit due to emails piling up and then
Outlook being a pain (which eventually led to me getting Thunderbird
just so I could access my emails). So, what's this about NVDA switching
from espeak to something else? I love espeak! Certainly a great deal
better than most synths I've heard, even the ones based on human voices!
The inflection is wonderful and I'm so used to it...will I have to redo
all my speech dictionaries? Will my ProTalker addon that I got so I
could learn Japanese again still work with this alteration? I don't
understand...

I should have said that I would expect that this is in Windows 10 because Edge is not available in earlier versions of Windows.  It appears now that the problem may exist in Internet Explorer regardless of version of Windows. 

However, this has evidently not been tested in Windows 8.

Despite putting a <span> with an aria-hidden=”true”, NVDA will still read “Your browser does not support the video tag.” while the video is loading.  Once the video is loaded, it will play.  For some reason when using IE, NVDA will not ignore that text.  It does not read it when using Chrome nor does VoiceOver read it. Is this an old bug that didn;t get fully fixed. I remember an issue aria-hidden in NVDA 2014 but thought is was fixed in 2015.

No one said E-Speak would no longer be used.  List members were simply expressing their opinions concerning E-Speak and whether it should be used..

Subject: [nvda] Changing from espeak?

I've been out of the loop for a bit due to emails piling up and then
Outlook being a pain (which eventually led to me getting Thunderbird
just so I could access my emails). So, what's this about NVDA switching
from espeak to something else? I love espeak! Certainly a great deal
better than most synths I've heard, even the ones based on human voices!
The inflection is wonderful and I'm so used to it...will I have to redo
all my speech dictionaries? Will my ProTalker addon that I got so I
could learn Japanese again still work with this alteration? I don't
understand...
