locked Re: REMOTE

 

Well, here again, I am going to lock a topic.

I actually proposed the idea of forking remote and integrating it into NVDA myself, on the recently locked topic  NVDA remote.  It appears from what Joseph Lee wrote that the idea is being entertained, and that at least one of the original developers of NVDA Remote is (or was) in discussions with the folks at NV Access with regard to the future of the add-on.

One of my resolutions this year as moderator is to put a stop to topics that are just repetitions of topics that have been discussed, at length, mere days before and where there is absolutely no value in having the same discussion again since nothing has changed.  That is but one of the reasons for several of the NVDA Group Rules:

1.  Use threaded or conversation view in your e-mail client program or webmail and reading through the entirety of a topic before replying.  It gets you completely up to speed and avoids a lot of repetition.  If you choose not to use threaded/conversation view, please take the time to read through all messages from the group that are in your inbox prior to adding any reply to the group.  It’s the only way you can be sure you’re up to speed on any topic when not using threaded/conversation view.

2. If you have reason to believe your question has likely been asked and answered in the past please search the Group Archive first before asking it again.  Step-by-Step instructions for searching the group archive using the Groups.io search or a web search engine of your choosing: Searching_the_NVDA_Group_Archive.docx

I'll extend #2 to include having reason to believe any given topic has been covered, particularly in the very recent past.  And I don't believe that most memories are so short that five days ago wouldn't be within the memory of most members who are participating routinely.

Traffic is really high on this group by comparison to many others.  Beating dead horses, or at least not allowing hospitalized horses to be cared for when it's been noted they are hospitalized just days ago, serves no one.

Topic locked.

Re: NVDA add-on Developer toolkit 2020.2 is now available!

To clarify the use case scenario for Developer toolkit, its audience is any blind or visually impaired software/web developer who is required to create user interfaces such as desktop UI elements, or web pages through the use of pure CSS, HTML, or any other page layout framework like Bootstrap, React, JQuery, or front-end frameworks like Angular, DJango, Flask, and others. It isn't a desktop publishing assistant. Therefore, it doesn't work in Word, Publisher, Adobe Illustrator, and Creative Suite. Although Creative Suite output is nothing more than web content, so Developer toolkit will help in this case. Some of the frameworks Developer toolkit works with include: Native Win32 GUI objects, MFC GUI objects, dgango, Flask, Python, PHP, CSS, HTML, JavaScript and any framework based upon it, WX (a Python GUI library), Java and Swing, .net Winforms, .net Webforms, and a whole host of others I can't name.

Re: is this a bug in NVDA 19.2?

Gene
 

You are using the add-on and Therefore, the question should be, is it a bug in the add-on, not in NVDA. 
 
The add-on generally works well.  Perhaps there is something about your system that makes the add-on unable to detect if a change occurred.
 
This page gives a little information about how the add-on works.  It may or may not give you any ideas about what the problem might be but you will have a little better idea of how it works, if you didn't read it before.

For me also the current incompatibility of the BrailleMe add-on is a showstopper. Innovision is aware of this and they are working on it.

Hi friends,
I guess something went wrong because I had installed too many addons
which resulted into strange issue.. NVDA is working fine after the
reinstallation.

Thanks alot for your suggestion..

Re: burning mp3s to cd with NVDA

The Gamages
 

Hello Dan,
 
You can do this in Windows ten or Windows seven without any extra program.
As MP3 files are compressed, you can’t use the normal burn process in Windows media player for Audio CDs, these must be Wav at 44k and 16 bit.
So you need to burn a data CD.
 
My notes below go through the steps.
 

burning data CD to use in a CD player.

 

insert a CD.

the message, how do you want to use this disc comes up.

either tab through it or close it with Alt f4, I did the latter,

 

If you have a this pc icon on the desktop press it, or press the windows key and type in pc, press enter,

my DVD drive is at the botton if the drive is expanded, if not use right arrow on devices and drives to expand it,

focus on the DVD icon and press it,

we are now back to the original message as to what we want to do with this disc,

The first choice is as a USB drive, you don’t want that in your case,

tab to the second item to burn as a disc which can be used on a CD player and press enter,

wait for the disc to format and then backspace to the list of drives in this pc window,

locate the file or folder you want to use, in documents in my case, ,

press the context menu and use send to, choose  DVD drive and press enter.

This givves files ready to be burned to disc and it is announced.

press back space to go back to This pc,

down to DVD drive and press enter to check the files waiting,

press back space again to go bac to this pc and the DVD icon,

 

press the context menu where you will find burn to disc, press enter on this,

tab and adjust recording speed as necessary,

tab to close the wizard after burn checkbox,

tab to next and press enter,

we get option to make an audio CD or make a data CD, choose data CD,

tab to next and press enter,

the burn starts, when finished the disc is ejected, this may only happen if it is set to do so in the relevant menu.

 

 Note that your CD player must be capable of playing MP3 files, usually this is the case with modern players, mine is ten years old and this works alright.

 

#Good luck.

 

 
Best Regards, Jim.

I have some mp3 files that I want to burn to a cd.  I have tried using the normal burning method via windows media player but it says it can't burn some of the files and doesn't want to burn any of them.  I thought I had another way using FreemakeVC but it will only convert audio files, it won't burn them to a CD.


Does anyone know of another way that is compatible with NVDA?  Looking at google shows a ton of them but no indication which is NVDA compatible.  Free would be better too. :)



Thanks.
