Re: NVDA synth setting not saving across different profiles

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi William,

I just tried having Microsoft Cathering OneCore as my default, setting up a profile and using Microsoft David for that.  If I set the profile to trigger based on program it works as expected, and if I manually activate and deactivate it, I also found it worked as expected.  Could you have changed the voice in your normal profile and not set a voice in your custom profile?  When you create a profile, only changes you make to settings while that profile is active are saved in the profile:

Assume your default voice is Microsoft David.  If you create Profile A, and increase the speech rate and punctuation.  Then create Profile B, and in Profile B set the voice to Microsoft Catherine.  When you go back to your normal profile, Microsoft David will be the voice.  If you then set the voice to Microsoft Zira in your normal profile, when you go to Profile B, it will still use Microsoft Catherine because that's what you set in that profile.  If you then go to Profile A, the voice will be Microsoft Zira, because it is inherited from the normal profile (but it will be faster and have different punctuation set because that's what you adjusted).

If that's not the issue, then yes if you could please write up exact steps to reproduce what you are experiencing, and if you could set your log level to debug, recreate the issue, then email a copy of the log to info@... we can have a look.  See https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/LogFilesAndCrashDumps for information on the log files.

Regards

Quentin.

According to the document:

Most settings can be changed in configuration profiles except for those
in the General category of the NVDA Settings dialog, which apply to the
entirety of NVDA.


However I found that some settings are not set based on specific profile.


voices of Windows onecore

1. I have a female American English voice set on main configuration.

2. I activate second profile

And I have a male British voice set

3. If I switch off second profile and go back to default profile, it
kept the male voice, and I have to manually switch back to the female
voice.


I would like to know if this is an issue.

If not, I would like to file a feature request on issue page.


Thanks,

If there is a table in the Libreoffice writer file, when nvda focus on

entered into the table

inside the table, if you move between cells, e.g. press tab, nvda will

Re: NVDA no longer says document review

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Mack,

I still get the document review when using insert + numpad 1 and numpad 7 in edit fields. In Thunderbird, once I turned on the settings using insert + main keyboard 6, 7 and 8.

When they are all turned on in edit fields, you do get the document review item in some cases.

Re: how to escape the notepad plus plus character panel?

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Dan,

Glad I could help.  As I mentioned in a previous post, sometimes the program will quit working. With the latest version, I think this has something to do with JAVA updates.  I had it happen twice in the past year.  All I do to get it working again is uninstall and reinstall.  With version 3.x, this seems to solve the issues.

Hi  Sascha ,

Pressing F8 works to take you back to the main edit screen.  I don't see this indexed anywhere with the help screens, but it is good to know that this keystroke works.

This is one of the issues I have with Notepad++: while much of it is accessible, many of the keyboard shortcuts are completely non-standard.

hi,

I sometimes use notepad plus plus to hand edit brl or brf braille files and other text files. I went into the edit menu and I wanted to enter some accented characters into a text file so I brought up the character panel, found the character I wanted and pressing enter puts that character into the file. But now when I run notepad++ the character panel keeps coming up and I can’t find a way to close it. So how do I close the character panel? I’m using the latest NVDA with CodeFactory eloquence and vocalizer addon.

Re: NVDA no longer says document review

Gene
 

You can only get document review in certain contexts, such as in a word processor.  You won't see it, for example, in Windows or file Explorer.  If you don't see it in contexts where you should, let us know.  Frankly, I never saw the point of it anyway.  Why not review a document using the application cursor?

The title says it all--I have found that I can't activate links on several

workaround?
