will it happin in 2001;3.33 of NVDA comes out in 2020? I made the

Well, the choppiness is not so noticable, but it is present and also words get cut off unnecessarily.  I think it isn't an NVDA problem but a problem with Sapi itself because It doesn't happen with ESpeak.  I have managed to change the rate through windows but I wish the rate could be slightly faster though, and I would not like to use the boost checkbox on NVDA itself.

Re: dropbox issue

 

I have no idea how you can work with their new program. I've moved to OneDrive because there were so many unlabeled buttons in the new program it was making my head hurt. I'd remove dropbox completely if I wasn't sharing folders with people.

Re: passwords and also a dropbox thing

I'm having no issues with dropbox on all of my platforms. I would check your own network and ping times etc with a 4 packet ping to google's servers. I'm on their pro plan so not sure if that makes a difference.

Hi.

This is a 2 part message with a 2 part subject.

I could do 2 messages but both topics are short so I won't.

1.  passwords should and I repeat not be saved anywhere especially in a web app aparently they are not secure.

On the security note, its been confirmed today via winaero, that microsoft security essentials will end its little stand alone life at the end of windows 7 lifespan.

You should all know when that is, its been bandied via microsoft via its addware compaigns, its websites, its news, its updates, this list, its various social network channels, in other words, its next month.

So another reason to upgrade to windows 10 is simply you will not have any antivirus protection at all.

I suspect with msse out, every other security manufacturer will probably follow suit in short order.

Unlike xp, at least for a while, a lot of the programs that ran on windows 7, will continue to be updated maybe for a bit but still.

Lastly, what is up with dropbox.

Someone or thing is really bogging down the platform, the update to the software which usually is done in minutes is taking hours and hours, failing a lot.

I have had to resume downloads multiple times.

Once I get it done on my system I will run the update on each system with it from a flash drive.

I am not sure if it effects the entire network on their end but something is consuming their entire cloud space bandwidth.

I don't use it for much but if you needed a reason to not use it, that would be it.

google itself seems fine the only time they dropped out is when their datacentre close to us failed.

They probably do more than dropbox ever did but yeah dropbox is running slowly.

Hi Everyone

I have loaded the Beta version of NVDA 3 and find Eloquence no longer
works.

I have been to the Code Factory site to register and pay for it, but I
cannot find out how many computers the registered version is licenced for.

Do I need a licence for each computer, or does one licence cover a number

Re: Using NVDA on a tablet.

John Isige
 

Thanks! Actually the first thing I did after writing the message was
remember your addon and I went and got it. Still haven't messed with it
much because it was right before I went to bed. I didn't think of it
right away because this is the first thing I've had with a touch screen
that I might want to use as a touch screen.  I'll check your tutorial
out as well.

On 12/17/2019 11:35 PM, Joseph Lee wrote:
Hi,
Ah, touchscreens...
1. Moving around text inside a window: this is done with what's called "text mode" (you can toggle between at least two touch modes by doing a three finger single tap; I'll explain why I said "at least two modes" below). In text mode, one finger flick right or left will move to next or previous character, two finger flick right or left will move to next or previous word, and one finger flick down or up will move to next or previous line. This is in relation to review cursor.
2. Thunderbird email entries: if the logic from other email clients is applicable, then yes, you can move between messages by using one finger flick left or right in object mode.
3. Touchscreen tutorial: already covered by yours truly as part of Welcome to NVDA series.

As for my remark on touch modes above: yes, I did say "at least two modes". The reason: Enhanced Touch Gestures add-on (I know, I find myself advertising my add-ons on a monthly basis...). IN addition to text and object modes, Enhanced Touch Gestures adds two additional touch modes:
* Synth settings: used to change synthesizer settings on the fly such as rate and voice (two finger flick left or right to step through settings, two finger flick up or down to change settings).
* Web: used to navigate between different web elements (one finger flick up or down to go through web elements (regular/normal, headings, links, form fields, frames, tables, landmarks), one finger flick left or right to move amongst elements).
But that's a small taste of what that add-on can do (it is perhaps one of the most powerful add-ons out there besides Remote and Windows 10 App Essentials).
Cheers,
JOseph

Subject: [nvda] Using NVDA on a tablet.

Hey all. I know this has been talked about in here before, but it seems to have been pretty brief. I don't want a whole crash course on using a tablet, I'll keep it to a simple use case.


I have QRead, or Notepad, or whatever open with some text. I pull the tablet off of the keyboard, so now it's a tablet, it's a Surface Pro, if that matters. I can move around on the desktop or whatever to get to a program, and double tap it, and it will open. I still haven't figured out if that puts me in its window, so let's say the window's already open. How do I:


1. Get to the window, and put focus in the window?


2. Make the window read, i.e. a say-all, the equivalent of NVDA-a in the laptop layout? I assume touching anywhere on the screen will stop it.


I've briefly tried messing with this, and although I get the basic
swiping to objects and such, I still haven't figured out what happens
once an object is active, lie what I'm talking about here. I don't know
how to get inside of it and manipulate the insides, so to speak, with
touch gestures. As another example, assume I open Thunderbird. I'm not
sure the individual messages get treated as objects, do they?


If somebody can cover this use case, I can start playing with things,
and I can see about making a tutorial, at least in text and possibly
audio, since I know I'm not the only person to ask about this.

Handbrake works, but can be a bit fiddly. There is also a command line version available.

FFMPEG is accessible (it is a command line program), but is not for the faint-of-heart.
