David Ingram
 

Hi list members, i'd like to know is there a more recent updater, and what addons can I use with the most recent version of NVDA? There doesn't seem to be many choices in terms of addons that I can choose to use. I would appreciate any assistance that anyone can give in reguards to my questions. Thank you.

After you try Joseph's test, you may want to try this.

It is possible that Windows removed the voices for some reason. To try to get them back, press your windows key and type "speech".
Move down to "speech settings", and press enter.
Then tab over to the "Manage voices" group, and you should be on the "add voices" button.
Press enter on that, and you will be able to enter and choose your language, and then install the appropriate voice pack(s).
In this case, you'll want to install the English (US) voice pack.
Once you select and install the voice, close everything and restart NVDA.

This is all assuming that the English (US) voice pack is not already installed.

Re: Windows OneCore voices don't appear correctly in the list of synthesizers

 

Hi,

What happens if you press Control+Windows+Enter to start Narrator? Narrator is supposed to use Windows OneCore voices by default, and if Narrator does come up talking, chances are that it might be something going on with NVDA or an add-on (or two) if you did install add-ons.

Cheers,

Joseph

NVDA read-to-end

Hi all

Sorry, I didn't pay attention when this topic was discussed in earlier posts as I haven't come accross that problem then.

Now however I do experience nvda reading to the end of the paragraph when pressing the nvda + down-arrow keys. Unfortunately I haven't seen a post with the solution. Can you please help ?

Thanks.

Hi friends,

 

I Have installed NVDA on a machine which has a bluetooth keyboard and I can’t find the insert key, not sure if it has one, it is the Apple style layout.

I Need to bring up the NVDA menu to go in to the options and change the keyboard layout to be laptop but I can’t perform an instert+n, does anyone know of another way to bring up the NVDA menu please?

Steven do the following
press your windows key
up arrow
page down until you get to the N section
arrow to NVDA and press enter
arrow down to "explore NVDA configuration directory" and enter
open NVDA.ini
search for capsLock and change the value to true
save the document
restart NVDA
this should give you the use of the capsLock. key.as a modifier.

Hi all,

i've recently released a new development version of the OCR addon which
can be downloaded from
https://github.com/lukaszgo1/nvda-ocr/releases/download/v2.1-dev/ocr-2.1-dev.nvda-addon
While user visible changes are documented in the readme the main change
in this version is the way in which parts of the screen are captured for
recognition and that is where I need your help. If you're using my
add-on currently I would be grateful if you could install the dev
version from the link above and use it for some time.
I've done some testing before release obviously but it is impossible
to account for every application out there, and while the new capturing
implementation makes future maintenance easier I don't want to do that
at the cost of worse recognition results.
Many thanks for your testing!

Re: Windows OneCore voices don't appear correctly in the list of synthesizers

Luke Davis
 

Louise, exactly which version of Windows 10 and NVDA are you running?

To get the windows 10 version, press the windows key, type "winver" (without the quotes), and press enter.
For NVDA, press NVDA+n, h, a.

If you press NVDA+R three times quickly, NVDA will be reset to factory defaults. If you do that, and then look for One Core in the dropdown available from NVDA+ctrl+s, do you find it?

While there are ways to simulate the real insert key on a Mac style keyboard (such as FN+i, FN+enter), there is no actual insert key unfortunately.

When you install NVDA, there is a welcome dialog that comes up. In it, one of the options is a checkbox for using the capslock key as a modifier. If you reinstall NVDA, make sure you check that box.

I Need to bring up the NVDA menu to go in to the options and change the keyboard layout to be laptop but I can’t perform an instert+n, does anyone know of

As several people suggested: if you go to the NVDA icon in the notification area, and press enter on it, you will get the NVDA menu. After that, pressing p, s, k, and tabbing a few times, should get you to the option you want.

Have you tried that?

Re: Windows OneCore voices don't appear correctly in the list of synthesizers

Louise Pfau
 

Hi.  When I opened the "Select a synthesizer" dialog, the combobox was described as "collapsed", and no option was highlighted.  When I scrolled through the list, the "Windows OneCore voices" were not listed.  The choices were "ESpeak-NG", "SAPI4", "SAPI5", and "No Speech".  The "Windows OneCore voices" talk though.  I'm not sure what could be going on.

Thanks,

I ask only because of how many "intermittently sticky" command keys I've encountered over the years as a computer repair person.  I'm not saying there is not a bug, but you should use a different keyboard, and preferably one you know to be behaving well, as a diagnostic step.  If the behavior does not persist, suspect your keyboard is going wonky.  And they can do this in stages where everything works fine then you have a brief period of "sticky command key" then it releases.  It's definitely not always an all or nothing situation, which makes it hard to diagnose sometimes.

The latter error is something I’m keeping a very close eye on, as clipboard history is my area of expertise in NVDA source code.

Hi Tony,

Here you go,

1. In settings>System>Clipboard, enable the option 'Save multiple items to the clipboard to use later. Press the Windows logo key + V to view your clipboard history and paste from it.'

2. Open Notepad as an example.

3. Type a couple of lines of text, cutting or copying them to the clipboard.

4. Press Win+v, and use up or down arrow to highlight the one you want to paste and press enter."

5. Notice what happens.

If the window's minimised, you may get an error message about objects.

I have tested this with all add-ons disabled with the same result.

I'm running Windows 10 Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.450) and NVDA version 2020.2. The same happens with the current NVDA alpha, which at time of writing is version alpha-20763,1ef4dfb0.

Re: Bug with Windows 10 Clipboard History

 

Hi,

I get a feeling that this is keyboard hook issue – I’m guessing that nVDA’s keyboard input hook is interfering with what clipboard history is supposed to accomplish.

Re: Python Anywhere and NVDA

I think NVDA's built-in documentation is good to use NVDA more efficiently.

A lot can be said for other topics.

I just learned from people to turn on the computer. I saw everything after it from the Internet.

You can read a few blog posts that describe the CMD environment and will familiarize you with Windows.
Or a good book to keep going with a plan.
