Re: Notepad++ add on - getting it to work?

 

You can also use F1 (passed through, of course) to bring up the About dialog in Notepad++

Alt,?,A  (and to be clear it is ALT followed by question mark followed by A, it's not a 2 or 3-key simultaneous press) works just fine, too.

Hi,

Alt+? will get you to a menu and the last item is about. This will show the
version. Also in this menu is a check for updates.
I type alt + shift + / which is the question mark.
Best

Re: NVDA compatibility concern with M.S. office

 

The Windows 7 part, check.   I presume you mean Office 2007, and if you do that version has been out of support for a very long time now. You need to upgrade your Office installation independent of anything else.  There are all sorts of potential compatibility issues that come from Office 2007 and earlier that are not present in the later versions.

You did not give the NVDA version number, which is essential.  NVDA+N,H,A will get you the "About NVDA" dialog which gives the Version number.

# Natural Language Processing -- Lexers

A lexer or tokenizer (e.g. a Finite State Machine or FSM) will tokenize a string of text -- splitting that text into sequences of characters that represent a full stop, comma, word, number, etc. Things to consider:
1.  Unicode General_Category property.
1.  Unicode Script property (e.g. for mixed Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji in Japanese).

Be aware that some word sequences can be contracted in speech ("we will" to "we'll") and there can be other suprasegmental (across word) pronunciations (e.g. the "d" and "j" (/dZ/) in "Said John" are typically geminated [1]).

[1] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gemination

1. https://www.unicode.org/versions/components-12.1.0.html -- Includes Unicode character and emoji data
1. http://cldr.unicode.org/index/downloads/cldr-35 -- Unicode Common Locale Data Repository (includes emoji translations)

# Natural Language Processing -- Part of Speech Tagging

This is used to differentate words with the same pronunciation, but different pronunciations or stresses ("the object" vs "I object", read, lead, "St Noun" vs "Noun St" vs "East St Noun St", etc.). This includes context/usage (as in Chinese "Tai Chi" vs Greek "Chi squared").

In the modern state of the art, this is typically done by a Hidden Markov Model (HMM).

1. https://www.nltk.org/book/ -- Natural Language Processing in Python (see chapter 5 for part of speech tagging)

# Numbers, Abbreviations, etc.

This is identifying the correct context and insering words in place of the numbers, abbreviations, or other contractions. For example, replacing "214" with "two hundred and fourteen".

# Natural Language Processing -- Stemmers

A stemmer is an algorithm that identifies and removes prefices and suffices. This can be used to identify the prefices, suffices, and base words to be pronounced. The classic stemmer is the Porter stemmer.

# Audio Synthesis / Vocoders

A vocoder (voice encoder/decoder) is a device or application that encodes and decodes voice audio. This can be used in telephone systems, music (e.g. Cher's Believe), or speech synthesis.

A diphone database (e.g. MBROLA) stores audio for phonemes in pairs, from the midpoints of each. This makes it easier to join the audio with reduced artifacts.

1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_predictive_coding -- Linear Predictive Coding (LPC) is the basis for a number of diphone synthesizers
1. Residual-excited LPC (RELP) vocoder. This is the model used by the festvox/festival diphone voices.
1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PSOLA -- This is the other method typically used in concatenative synthesizers (adding audio segments together). A variant of this is used by MBROLA.

More recent vocoders (like wavenet) use neural networks. I'm not as familiar with this approach.

It is also useful to be familiar with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) techniques and terminology, e.g. spectrum and formants.

Re: Microsoft word: determine bullet shapes with NVDA

Vincent Le Goff <vincent.legoff.srs@...>
 

Thanks for the help, it works perfectly.  I'm not quite sure the bullet type I'm now using was the one in the old document I had written last year, because NVDA only says "bullet", and my Braille display shows something quite standard, but it doesn't really matter anyway.  The next document will be up-to-date!

Hi Vincent,

In Word, where you want to start a bulleted list, if you press ALT+H for the home ribbon, then "u" for bulleted list (think of it either as the second letter in the word bullet, since B was taken for border - OR u for unordered list).  This opens a list where you can select the type of bullets to use from Recently used, Bullet library or document bullets.  Or you can go down to "define new bullets" and choose your own character, or image.

While on a list, if you press alt+h, u, it will open the same list, but with the focus on the bullet currently being used.

Hi everyone,


I'm working with Microsoft Word a lot these days.  I like to have
consistent documents and try to create visually-attracting ones when I
can, with headers and footers and nice tables and so on. I'm following
the guide to Microsoft Word with NVDA, which is very useful.  However,
one thing I can't figure out how to do: when in a bulleted list, how do
you know what bullet is used?  I like to use the same kind for all my
ordered list.  As far as I know, when trying to avoid standard bullets
(I personally like the "filled square" one), Word relies on numbers
(like bullet 318) when you try to insert.  But does NVDA reports the
kind of bullet used? And if so, how?  This information doesn't seem to
be present in NVDA+F.  On the other hand, I think one cannot focus the
bullets to "see" what they are, though I might be mistaken about that.


As someone who doesn't and can't use the speech output, relying on just
auditory indications isn't going to work, though I can still use the
speech viewer if needed.


Thanks for your help,


Vincent

NVDA compatibility concern with M.S. office

pankaj singh Kushwaha
 

Dear friends, last two weeks I did not start JAWS for accessing my
laptop and associated services. But today, I was forced to start jaws
to access track changes feature provided by m.s. office. Through the
NVDA I tried to off and on the feature but the regular shortcott
command like control+ shift+E was not working. even, NVDA was not
announcing anything? so the experts are requested to through some
light upon. Is there seperate commands to access certain features?
Please let me know to become active nvda user.
thanks in advance and I'll wait for your productive comments

Add-on Developer toolkit: Returning to active development duties

Andy B.
 

Hi all,

 

My last release announcement indicated that I would take the month of September to focus on documentation issues and code refactoring. DTK found someone that can handle documentation issues, making it possible for me to focus more on the code. I am returning to active development duties as of today. This means that the code refactoring process will begin this weekend. Release announcements will then come back to a normal schedule in the next few weeks. Since we are approaching a new development cycle, I would like to hear your ideas/feature requests. What would you like to see DTK do next?

Hi Pascal, SHIFT+F10 is the alternate way of bringing up the context menu to pressing the applications key (or clicking the right mouse button).  If it's copying the link above, it might be that you are in between links (at the end of the first link and the start of the second link), in which case, try pressing the right arrow.

 

The only reason I mentioned the mouse in the first place was that I know that is one situation where selecting text and then using control+c doesn't copy, you shouldn't need to use the mouse to copy if you don't otherwise use the mouse.

Yep.  SHIFT+F10 is the "universal replacement" for an applications/menu key.   I use it almost exclusively since I move among machines, some of which don't have the applications/menu key on the keyboard.

I've also found at least one occasion when installing Windows 10 that I cannot get a response using the applications/menu key but always can using SHIFT+F10

If you don't have an applications key, you can usually press shift+f10 to get the context menu. Control+c is also the shortcut key for copying text, files, or anything else that has been selected in Windows. I'd recommend looking through the Windows help for a keyboard shortcut guide. The current version of that according to Windows 10 is here:

If that link doesn't work, just press f1 from your desktop and then look for the keyboard shortcuts link.
