Re: NVDA read-to-end

David Goldfield
 

Hettie,

First, I do recall encountering this issue with LibreOffice but this was many years ago. I'll give it a try with NVDA 2020.2 with LibreOffice 7.0, which was recently released. Also, which synthesizer are you using? I ask because Acapela recently released a new version of its NVDA driver which they report corrects a read all issue although they did not go into specifics as to what the problem actually was.

Hi Quintin

After trying the read-to-end in thunderbird and wordpad it seems to be a problem with LibreOffice. I can't upgrade to Microsoft Office 10 and tried LibreOffice  as an alternative as it has a word processor as well as a spread sheet unction. Wordpad can perform all I need but I need another program that can read and work with Excel, anyone has ideas of what other accessible software I can use?


Thanks

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

 

Hi,

If you sent me the log, I didn’t get it yet.

As for the immediate issue at hand: based on Windows version as reported by Python, it appears one of two things happened:

  1. NVDA is somehow told to run in Windows 8 compatibility mode (to check, go to Desktop, select but do not press Enter on NVDA icon, press Alt+Enter, then go to Compatibility tab and see if any checkboxes are checked).
  2. Windows compatibility manifest info for NVDA has somehow become corrupt. NVDA gets compatibility manifest values from Python in recent NVDA releases, which controls which version of Windows compatibility shims (compatibility layer code) Python (and in extension, NVDA) will run under. This will require a “thorough” reinstall – not only removing NVDA and all its files and traces from the system, it will also require removing user settings altogether.

Cheers,

Joseph

Are you coming from using Jaws by chance?  If so, then I'd first recommend reading the Switching from Jaws to NVDA guide, which is free and available from:  https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda-community/wiki/SwitchingFromJawsToNVDA

It covers the equivalents of the various Jaws cursor and other features that users coming from Jaws will be familiar with.

Hello!

Yes, as Gene mentioned, NV Access sell our own training material for NVDA.  I would recommend starting with the Basic Training for NVDA module.  It is $32 AUD for the electronic text version, $48 AUD for the audio version and $65 for hardcopy Braille (delivered anywhere in the world).  We also have a suite of material for Microsoft Office, or you can purchase everything together, along with telephone support in the NVDA Productivity Bundle.

All of those options are at: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/

The main website where they are is found at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net

Any of the pages that mention nvda will link you to the nvda tutorials inside of the website. You will see what I mean when you pick one.


They are only in English as that is what I speak..


Also there is a link to the nvda shop on every page where you can buy material written and audio for a cost which Quentin sells from NVACCESS.


The pages will also point you towards other stuff as well.

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

Quentin Christensen
 

Are you using any NVDA add-ons?  If so, if you press NVDA+Q, then down arrow to "Restart with add-ons disabled" does it make a difference?

My reading of the thread is that everything is working - OneCore Voices are working and reading just fine, it's just that they aren't listed in the Synthesizer dialog, correct?

(In which case, it's still a puzzle, but at least not preventing you from using your computer, which is the main thing).

Have you restarted your computer lately?  As in restart from the Windows start menu, not just closed the lid (if you have a laptop)?  Computers can go a long time these days without properly restarting, but every now and then bugs creep in which a restart fixes.

Do you have NVDA set to start automatically?  If so, if you press CONTROL+ALT+N to restart NVDA, is OneCore listed then?  The only thing I can think of is whether something hasn't finished loading by the time NVDA starts, and although the synthesizer works fine, for some reason the synthesizer dialog isn't getting a full list of available synthesizers...

Otherwise I can't think of what it could be offhand.

Quentin.

So yes, the built-in Notepad can be used to take notes.
You may have created a good note-taking environment when you divide the
topics into different folders.
But people don't take notes that way. And this is not a portable method.
You are reading an article on any website. You want to save the article
somewhere. Perhaps there are sentences to underline.
Nothing on the web is likely to stay the way you first found it. Some
contents die. And those contents can be very important.
This is why people use applications such as OneNote and Evernote.
You can tag notes in those applications, you can save websites content ,
and you can connect between notes...
These features are not what notepad supports.
And most of these apps also have a mobile app.
This way, people can take new notes, update, delete, etc., even while on
the go.
If you know of such an application, please let me know.
If there is still no note-taking application available, I'll write it in
Golang.
I can not believe this. Maybe I've tested 10 apps and none of them are
compatible with screen readers. We are in the 21st century. It's so scary.

yes, the problem is that I installed multiextra sometimes ago, and now I

really don't know if I have some malware on my pc. The software now is

not free anymore, I hope nobody will use it!

I don't like when a person use a free software and in a second it

becomes commercial or paysoftware. I think the user should be advised

before. You update and... end!

 

 

 

 


Re: Accessible note taking apps

Hi there: Why don’t you google it? I’m not sure when evernot came about. If you are still using xp and liking it. Just google it.  The reason I say this. People wil tell you that xp is too old and not secure enough.  If you know someone who will google it or you have some other device that you can use. Just google  your question.

Re: what addons can i get with the most recent version of NVDA?

 

Hi,

I see. The most likely explanation is that, somewhere in the installation process, the add-on thinks you are running an older Windows 10 release, which isn’t clearly the case.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi.  I ended up cancelling the installation when the message about the older version of Windows came up.  I downloaded the "Windows 10 app essentials" add-on from the NVDA add-ons website.  I haven't used the NVDA add-on updater.
