Re: Can't update Vocalizer with NVDA's latest?

Gene
 

I would suggest getting the beta, creating a portable version, and trying the add-on with it so you can be prepared and see any possible problems now.  Also, reporting them might be useful.
 
In addition, I have said before that automatically save settings when you close the program is a very bad default setting.  If you close it, or for some reason you close it by shutting down Windows, any experimental settings will be saved and will be the new settings used when you run the program.  It would be a very good idea to turn this setting off and save that change with control NVDA key c. 
 
If you switch to the new voices and you have silence, you can then simply use control shift r and apply the saved configuration, which will run the voice you use when the program comes up.  You won't get into a loop where the silent voice is automaticallly saved and comes up when you run the program or revert to the saved configuration. 
 
Of course, if the program freezes, you will have to deal with that and then run the program again. 
 
I strongly believe that automatically save settings on exit is a very poor default setting and that very serious consideration be given to changing it.  People can get into all sorts of trouble with this setting being on and new users, in particular, should be free to experiment as much as they want with different settings and not have them inadvertently saved, when it isn't their intent.

I tried going ahead and updating to the new Vocalizer Driver, but because I’m still running NVDA’s latest stable version it won’t allow for the update, thus I’ve several questions for when the time comes to update myNVDA; I’m worried I’ll have to cope with a silent NVDA, and my family doesn’t know much of technology or computers, to be able to if this should arise, help me out in the meantime.

1.-What’s the best course of action, then when updating to the latest NVDA when it comes out, so that I won’t be without a voice, when the NVDA runs? If I install the Beta of NVDA in portable mode, and I update Vocalizer that way, will the upgraded voice come up speaking when the actual stable NVDA IS RELEASED?

2.-Because I’ve Vocalizer to run as my default voice, would you guys recommend then maybe defaulting to a windows10 voice to be on the safe side, and then update the Vocalizer Driver from that perspective?

You have a NVDA command in browse mode, n, that jumps the blocks of links, graphics and so on going to the next text.

 

You also have an add-on, browsernav, with a command to the same purpose, but mor efficient…

Hello all,

 

Many emails I get contain logos and other types of graphics. I’m using Outlook 2019. Is there an NVDA key command to bypass the graphics and navigate directly to the text? The “read all” command does not work reliably.

 

Thanks,

Well, when my sound card died. Someone on this list said I can get a ten dollar usb sound card. I did find a place where they had them. I would have had to wait for a month to get a new card.  I was trying to complete my online food safe class.  Even if I wanted to get a new sound card. The people in the town called Nelson British Columbia Canada said I was better off just spending the bucks and getting a new computer.  I was glad I did.  I completed that on line class.  That’s when NVDA rocked.  It responded quicker then it did on my old win 7.  Even other usb ports were burned out on that system. When this person was moving my files off the 7 box. He told me there was about 2 or 3 ports that was burned out.

You may have such a problem again.  You don't need to spend any amount of money that matters.  You can get and use very inexpensive USB sound cards for ten U.S. dollars or less. 

 

It would serve people well not to assume solutions or whether they are feasible or not without asking about it on a list of knowledgeable users unless the user is knowledgeable enough about a subject to really know.

 

I understand that you had other problems with the computer and you might not have wanted to continue using it but even having it as a backup machine with an inexpensive soundcard might be valuable.

, I don’t have a 7 box anymore, mine died late last February. It lost all soundand I probably would have needed a new sound card.  I didn’t want to spend the money getting a new sound card for an 8 year old 7 box.  It was becoming more and more unreliable. I was going to leave 7 anyway! I knew support would be running out soon.  I was just concerned for those who still use 7.

Hi, I thought support is running out for windows 7.  When is Microsoft quitting support for windows 7?  I wonder if windows 7 is going to be like xp having no security on the net?  I personally don’t care if people still want to use it. If they do, they should just use it for checking mail. Or things you can do with it that you may not be able to do with ten.  Like audio programs like total recorder or using audio equipment such as taking audio from cassette tapes I know you can do it with xp.  If I had 7 I’d not do on line banking with it.

Switch to windows core voices
deauthorize the existing vocalizer license.

update, so you may need to wait for the key to be reclaimed if your
current remaining key count is 0.

Then update to 2019.3

All those suckers that got those y2k avoidence software packages, etc.

Yeah it could have been quite bad but we got on top of it.

Sir,

 

Thank you for your clarifying email. I would like to remind you that the year is only 2020 "anno Domini nostri Jesu Christi" in the Western Christian tradition, and is not based on an actually observable incident. Based on historical data, some have argued that the entire numbering system is as far off as 3 years from the census that supposedly took place right before Christ's birth. Also, the Julian/Gregorian calendar, which transfers from 1 BC (year of Christ's birth) to 1 AD (a baby Christ's first birthday?) without a year zero are not the only calendars to measure 2020 years from that point: several other Eastern and Western calendars count the years from 0, which corresponds to 1 BC in the Julian/Gregorian. Taking such discrepancies into consideration, it makes perfect sense to celebrate the birth of a new decade at year zero.

1.-What's the update process like?
2.-Will I loos settings and voices during updating the driver?
3.-Any new voices added yet?
Thanks again for the great work' in always keeping us up to speed! I use Vocalizer as my main driver, thus my worry of if and when the new NVDA release comes out, I would've had to use the Windows10 voice in the meantime.

I don't know why it would have taken you a month.  Can you order from Amazon or Tiger Direct or from any good computer store?  These cards are available in any good computer store and from Amazon and I don't see why it would have taken more than a day or two to get it.  But aside from that, it’s a very good idea to have an emergency computer.  You never know when you might need it.  Computers are generally very reliable but even so, something may fail and need repair, in which case, a backup computer can save you a lot of inconvenience.

Well, when my sound card died. Someone on this list said I can get a ten dollar usb sound card. I did find a place where they had them. I would have had to wait for a month to get a new card.  I was trying to complete my online food safe class.  Even if I wanted to get a new sound card. The people in the town called Nelson British Columbia Canada said I was better off just spending the bucks and getting a new computer.  I was glad I did.  I completed that on line class.  That’s when NVDA rocked.  It responded quicker then it did on my old win 7.  Even other usb ports were burned out on that system. When this person was moving my files off the 7 box. He told me there was about 2 or 3 ports that was burned out.

You may have such a problem again.  You don't need to spend any amount of money that matters.  You can get and use very inexpensive USB sound cards for ten U.S. dollars or less. 

 

It would serve people well not to assume solutions or whether they are feasible or not without asking about it on a list of knowledgeable users unless the user is knowledgeable enough about a subject to really know.

 

I understand that you had other problems with the computer and you might not have wanted to continue using it but even having it as a backup machine with an inexpensive soundcard might be valuable.

Hi, I thought support is running out for windows 7.  When is Microsoft quitting support for windows 7?  I wonder if windows 7 is going to be like xp having no security on the net?  I personally don’t care if people still want to use it. If they do, they should just use it for checking mail. Or things you can do with it that you may not be able to do with ten.  Like audio programs like total recorder or using audio equipment such as taking audio from cassette tapes I know you can do it with xp.  If I had 7 I’d not do on line banking with it.

Telling anyone to avoid HTML e-mail at this point in history (and by avoid I don't mean changing how one might choose to view messages) is an exercise in futility, to put it mildly.  It can also result in a major loss of content and actual ease of access from many e-mail messages.

HTML format has been the de facto convention for a very long time now.  Most screen readers seem to do quite well with it, in my observation, and they'd have to since the vast majority of e-mail messages these days involve HTML formatting.

The HTML ship has sailed and the days of the plain-text dinghy are never coming back - at least if one wishes to conform oneself to the wider world as it is.

Well, I live in Saskatoon Canada, which is a days drive from Nelson.  It is a great town I’m sure, but whoever told ou it would take a month to get a usb soundcard is full of poop.

I got one for 10 dollars from;

 

Amazon.ca

 

And it arrived in 3 or 4 days.

Glad to hear you are enjoying your new p c.
