Subject: [nvda] Error with NVDA addons

Hello,

I'm running NVDA 2019.2.1 on win10 x64. I checked for an NVDA update and didn't see any. I then checked for addon updates and got error messages from the following addons stating they need a minimum of NVDA
2019.3 which is not out yet. Is there a fix? The addons in question
are:

resource monitor
OBJ pad
windows 10 app essentials
goldwacve
virtual revision
easy table
enhanced touch gestures
systray list

Thanks.

Subject: [nvda] Requesting NVDA to add a function to automatically speak pasted text

Hi all,


I hope NVDA or NVDA addon can add a function to automatically speak pasted text.

I do a lot of typing word, including copying and pasting of text, sometimes involve pasting words repeatedly.

I now, after pasting with ctrl v, I have to press ctrl left arrow or up and down arrow to read the pasted content.

As I do a lot of these steps repeatedly, I want a function to save time.


I have also posted a request on Github, but someone closed my issue saying that NVDA has the function to press ctrl c to speak clipboard text.

https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/10709


Pressing extra keys like ctrl c is not what I needed for my work.


I am unhappy my issue was closed by someone without responding to what I have suggested.


I don't mind you say that the function is not needed by every body, and
is not going to implement it.


Here I would like to bring this to your attention.


Please do comment on my issue. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks.

William


Re: Requesting NVDA to add a function to automatically speak pasted text

 

Sucks this request was closed because I'd like this functionality as well. As a setting though, so that way it can work with profiles and such. Also, a character limit. Dang. I'll go check out github and try to bring up this point there, even though the topic is locked.

Joseph Lee's add-on updates: Control Usage Assistant, Enhanced Touch Gestures, GoldWave, Object Location Tones #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

In the next few hours four add-on updates will be released (note that all of them will require NVDA 2019.3 beta or later):

 

  • Control Usage Assistant 20.01
  • Enhanced Touch Gestures 20.01
  • GoldWave 20.01
  • Object Location Tones 20.01

 

These are the add-ons that were scheduled to be released a few weeks ago but were delayed due to NVDA 2019.3 compatibility concerns.

 

Note: if you are using NVDA 2019.2.1 or earlier, you can ignore these releases. But there will come a time when you may need to upgrade to 2019.3 or later to take advantage of improvements coming in NVDA.

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: Confusion Over Chrome Based Edge Browser

Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

Well, I have three Edges.  The Microsoft Edge itself no longer works.  The one called Microsoft Beta no longer works.  By this I mean that when I launch the shortcut, a blank page loads and there is no access to menus or anything else.

The one called Microsoft Edge DEV works.  Under the help/about properties dialogue, I get the following information:
Microsoft Edge Microsoft Edge is up to date.Version 81.0.389.2 (Official build) dev (64-bit)

I am running NVDA 2019.3 beta 2.  When trying this one out, it seems quite good.  I was able to fill out a simple form. I was able to play a radio station and I was able to navigate crowded and complex web pages fairly easily.  It even recognizes visited links--something that the original Edge release a few years ago did not exhibit either with JAWS or NVDA.  So it's a keeper and maybe even a default browser if I decide I want to make the switch.

Trial version of Nuance Vocalizer

Samuel Villa <Saleena81@...>
 

Hello,

When I install the Vocalazir driver from Tiflotecnia, I don’t see the synth listed in the list of installed synthesizers. I am using version 2.0.2. Can somebody help me with getting a trial version of the driver? Thanks for your help.

Hi.


My guess is that they both are the Chromeum based one, just different development channels of it.


If you have installed the released version yet, then you probably don't have any non Chromeum based edges left, heh.

Re: Confusion Over Chrome Based Edge Browser

 

Well there are 3 branches.

Aparently there is a way, however to make it more of a mess.

I downloaded chromium stable, aparently a few places have autobuild sites.

Bar a few api keys needed for features, chromium is the same as chrome without some of the google features, and edge with the microsoft features.

Apart the only reason a user wouldn't use chromium over chrome or edge is that there are no official binaries published and it doesn't seem to autoupdate itself.

However, chromium standard form can be used by anyone so its going to be an interesting year.

Re: a question about the new edge browser

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


Sounds like you have 2 versions of it on your computer both the dev version which is more like the alfas and the beta version.


There was a link which I will post that come across the list for the stable version at https://c2rsetup.officeapps.live.com/c2r/downloadEdge.aspx?ProductreleaseID=Edge&platform=Default&version=Edge&source=EdgeInsiderPage&Channel=Stable&language=en

It is for the chromium version of it.


You could then uninstall the other 2 versions under add/remove programs or what ever it is called in your version of windows.


It should also import your settings etc.


i am using it now at present.



I think if you have windows 10 and nvda 2019.3 beta 2 you are right to go.


But if i remember right if you are using nvda 2019.2.1 you need to get the dev version of windows esentuals for it to work on that version?


There was also a small tutorial on how to turn off UIA or what ever it was called in edge.

For sure, it did install the stable new edge and replaces the old one.

Hi all.

On the subject of edge, it may come past in the next update pass.

It is supposed to be out today.

Usually updates come out between 5 am and 8 am new zealand time, equate
that to your timezone.

There is a windowsupdate twitter and blog which will tell you to.

Currently if I search for edge I get a page which states thats its
almost there.

I'm not going to push it if it doesn't.

Yes you can install edge stable yourself, and you can also just as
quickly remove it.

I'd wait for the full system integrated  version myself.

There are a few pinned icons and links to word and other microsoft
online things to manage when you do at least with the stable version.

Some of these I do not personally like.

It does seam that you will have to make sure you reset your internet
brouser though after install as things became a little messed up after
install when I did it.

It will be interesting what this eventually does.

For myself I do wander things like what chrome will do and the
differences between it and chrome will truely be.

Most people in the house are chrome users and I am a waterfox user and
this will not change that much as everything we have is up there.

I fully presume microsoft edge will only allow native connection to
microsoft services but who knows.
