Re: end of the line for finereader

Finereader is by far the best OCR solution on the market. It just makes sense to stick with them. There was a major upgrade in June apparently, and the OCR was improved even more.

If you press NVDA+N, then T, there is an option there in the Tools menu called "Run COM Registration fixing tool". That can help in some situations. Usually it's more when everything reports "unknown" but it could be worth a try here.

Otherwise, could you have any add-ons in Microsoft Office which might be stealing focus to an invisible window on startup? I know DropBox was doing that at one point. Some Anti-Virus programs have in the past as well.

Re: Scanner Software and Printer

 

Hmmm interestingly today I recieved a bit from abbyy.

Firstly finereader pdf15 is the same as the old fine reader 15.

Secondly they acknowledged they had recieved the issues I raised but admitted not to have fixed them.

No date on the fix though.

I've switched to text cloner though and at least for me and abbyy that will be it.

If I need abbyy on another system I then may just well get it again as I still have my licence.

I will get my free upgrade though.

Because finereader 15 has really slow menu access with nvda which support was able to reproduce.

The last update was the end of last year and I put the ticket in on january well could have been just before that.

They havn't fixed it and I am tired of waiting.

I use my ocr software mainly for paper documents that are not electronic.

These are a few bills and letters and while 80% of them are email there are still a bunch of things I need to print and I have decided I can wait no longer.

For what I do I don't need the best mainstream software, I need stable and accessible software.

I waited for ages and even let it go because of the virus in my country but after getting some notes on the latest end of life on flash and getting rid of it and shockwave I decided to revisit all the stored notes for the year past and found that.

I actually would have prefered to continue mainstream.

But I have just spent 160 dollars on text cloner pro and I have no regrets, and I'm never going back to abbyy at least not on my own machine.

Becides for the price I pay I get a spellchecker, dictionary and a miniture word processer all in the same package.

And premier may actually have other bits of software I may come back for at some point.

I know mainstream is usually the way but after switching from something to something made with standard guidelines and controls, I can't say I want to move.

For one thing the program is faster loading.

For another the installer was 90mb in size not 500mb, the program itself is only just over 130mb in size.

The program uses the iris engine.

I did have and use iris software when I had an older scanner and it was ok.

Iris itself costs a lot less than abbyy does well especially on the deal I had but access on the actual program just wasn't good not on the full version.

I can't see myself paying for a bigger program even if its issues are solved.

Pluss so far I have had no support delays at all.

And while there are a few really small issues with a shortcut and part of the installer its basically it.

I am sure they will get fixed and there will be not much of a delay in getting things done.

It can work on any screen reader and while it did cost a little, it cost slightly less than a fine reader upgrade, and certainly a lot less than a full version of abbyy fine reader.

Pluss as I said I just don't want to wait anymore.

When I have had issues I have had to sometimes wait a month for any reply and other friends have even had issues with finereader 14.

With the way windows is going I need something that will stay updated without changing itself so it becomes hard to use.

Pluss it loads fast, and there are no frills.

Its just a word processer with a few extras in its menus it even auto detected my scanner.

Not hearing letters as they are typed or long lag in hearing letter

Jennifer Aucoin
 

Hi everyone:

My hubby is a long time user of NVDA. We’ve encountered a problem that we can’t seem to fix. The screen reader is reading almost everything, but isn’t reading letters as they are typed in google and MS edge’s search screens, and any MS document. 

Anyone have suggestions? We’ve deleted and updated NVDA, switched the keyboard to a new port and rebooted. 


Re: Braille input focus 40 blue 5th gen and NVDA

Roberto Perez
 

I have successfully used a Focus 40 blue 5 generation with NVDA. It is necessary to install a driver that can be found in the following FS page: https://support.freedomscientific.com/Downloads/Focus/FocusBlueBrailleDisplayDriver.

It is possible to add commands to toggle the modifier keys using the input gestures dialog but I don’t think it is possible to emulate the function keys, so you may have to depend on an external keyboard up to some extent. There is an addon that extends NVDA braille support considerably called braille extender  which adds support for the functions keys but I don’t think it has been updated to support the latest versions of NVDA.

Re: acapella voices

Larry, this is very odd. When I download the main engine the file name is

Acapela TTS Voices for NVDA - Engines-1.6 (2).nvda-addon

The only reason that the (2) characters are contained in the name of the file is because I have a previous copy of the file. May I know which browser you are using and what is the full file name that you have with the .man extension?

The direct download link for the engine is

http://www.acapela-nvda.com/download_list/v1_6/Acapela%20TTS%20Voices%20for%20NVDA%20-%20Engines-1.6.nvda-addon

In addition to David's confusion, I too am confused.

You say you have the "latest" version of NVDA, which you list as "2020.3".

However, the latest version of NVDA is 2020.1.
The previous version of NVDA is 2019.3.

Your NVDA version is therefore impossible, and I concur with David's confusion about what exactly you're trying to do.
Perhaps you could elaborate exactly what steps you are following to get to where you have the problem? That might help us understand what's going on.

so what do I do?

I have occasionally encountered this problem and not just with NVDA as the screen reader. The alt-tab solution will certainly work. However, what usually works for me is to press the alt key twice. The first press will move focus to the ribbon and the second press returns focus to the document window and speech should behave as expected. The bottom line is that you want to move focus away from and then back to the document window. Alt-tab certainly does this but pressing either the alt or the Windows key twice will do the same thing and may be a tad easier and quicker.

Hello group,

I have Nvda 2020 and Office 2016.

I have found a problem.

After starting word or excel, Nvda is silent.

I would like to know, where is an error.

Do you have an idea, please?

Larry,

I'm a bit confused by your message as addons for NVDA don't have a .man extension. Have you downloaded 1.6.2 from this page?

and it doesn’t work as other addons did when entering on the file.

Congratulations

I had to ring Sight and Sound in the UK when I had problems installing version 13 and they were insistent that it was not supported in Windows 10 and that I had to purchase the upgrade to version 14.

I cannot remember now what would not work in version 13 but in my case it was unusable.

Hi David,

 

I’m using Kurzweil 13.4 on my Windows 10 system. I had to go to the Kurzweil site and download a patch to update version 13 to 13.4, also there was a set of instructions I had to follow when installing the patch. I called Kurzweil support to ensure I was doing everything correctly. I was told that 13.4 may not work after a major update but I’m currently up to the latest 1909, waiting for 2004, and Kurzweil is still working.

Kurzweil version 14 is working here on Windows 10 but versions before that, such as 13 etc most definitely did not. I had to uprade from 13 to get functionality.

Don’t know .kurzweil 1000 has not been updated  since 14. Since  the  developer of Kurzweil 1000 for the blind has retired. they are still keeping Kurzweil 3000 product around. Maybe download  a trial of  that and see how it works.   The other  thing I can think of is open book by VFO or omni page .but with omni page I have not tried and don’t know how  well it will work .

Hi all.

 

Well, looks like fine reader just had a name change since I have gotten it.

 

It seems to be called fine reader 15 pdf now.

 

Since support and abbyy don't seem to deem it important to fix the accessibility issues and since it all seems locked to business now I think it is time for me to cut my losses and upgrade.

 

The last version was released at the end of the year.

 

What ocr program should I use instead of abbyy fine reader.
