unable to download Word training with NVDA

Giles Turnbull
 

I downloaded the Word with NVDA tutorial last year but the files are on a laptop that died a death yesterday. I want to download the zip file again but am getting a file not found error, despite my purchase never expiring (according to the email receipt):

Does anybody know if I can still download my purchased copy and, if so, how?

This is quite an urgent request because I need the book to help me do the headers and page numbers on my university MA course dissertation, deadline end of September.

Many thanks :)

Re: Can't run NVDA with admin rights on a MS Surface

I have a surface go and had a surface pro4 I think it was or maybe 3 anyway have not seen this suspect something is going on with an AV product. do you use anything other than Defender? hope you get it working.

As you've found with your Lenovo's, the general advice I gave should
usually work, but evidently there is something different happening with the
Surface. Can you get me a copy of the nvda.log and maybe the nvda-old.log
files from the %temp% folder on one of the surface machines (ideally from
when it was installed, and from when it wouldn't start, rather than the
portable copy).

Hi Quentin,

I installed the software with an admin account and can run the software

NVDA will not run and this is only an issue on Microsoft Surface

Does there exist a page accessible by "the general public" where one can
browse for older versions of NVDA. I have had occasion to want to do this
in the past. I thought I'd try the URL you gave, cutting it off at
"releases," but if you try to go directly to that page you get a 403
Forbidden message. You even get the forbidden message if you cut off only
the executable file name at the end.

There are plenty of legitimate reasons one might wish to acquire an old,
even long out of support version of NVDA. Is there a central repository
where these can be easily downloaded?

Re: appModule, where to find help?

 

Hi,

It works on my end - it is recognized as a terminal. Did you tell NVDA to use UIA for consoles? If so, that might explain what might be happening.

Anyway, I advise asking this on the development list at this point.

NVDA OCR scanned pdf

Lubbe Hendrik <blindguydiy@...>
 

Good day

 

Is there a way that NVDA can rotate the pdf when doing ocr using the “NVDA key + r”.  For As you know if you are blind you cannot see if the pdf is rotated or not.  I wrote a small program in python to input the pdf, and rotate it before it runs it through tesseract for output.  But if there is a way that NVDA can also do it when using the OCR function it will be great for my work do not like us having pdf to ocr programs on the pc’s we work on.

 

Thank you


Re: appModule, where to find help?

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

Joseph,


I don't think this problem is specific to an app in itself.  This is a console application.  If you need the name, this is crawl (crawl-console.exe).  But I would have thought querying the data was  exactly the same thing as querying text from the Windows console.  In this mode, data is displayed in a console and you can use the same shortcut as in any console application.  Navigation is exactly the same too.  Would I have more luck trying to get the "displayed text" on another console application?  I can't figure out why, but I guess I'll try, just to be sure.


Portable version to test if anyone is willing: https://crawl.develz.org/release/0.23/stone_soup-0.23.2-console-win32.zip

Re: Scope of the Calibre addon

Mallard
 

Hello,


As far as I nkow, ebooks in the Calibre Viewer are presented as images, or encrypted somehow, so they can't be read. In order to see the text, you have to use the OCR function in NVDA, which is absolutely out of the question.


When I asked the devs what is the reason behind this behaviour, I was told it's because of copyright...


It honestly escapes me why ebooks aer copyrighted only when a blind person has to read them, while sighted people can read the text without issues...


I'd somewhat understand this if it applied only to drm-protected books, but it applies to anything... Even to drm-free books.


Ciao,

Ollie

Hi,

I'm irritated about the Calibre addon for NVDA. Does it allow reading
ebooks with Calibre or is it only to make use of the converter
capabilities? Even with the addon installed I'm not able to read any
book content in Calibre's ebook viewer. There is no browse mode and also
the review cursor/object navigation doesn't help.

Best regards,
Jens



Re: appModule, where to find help?

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

Thanks Ralf.


When running NVDA with level log set to debug, going to the window, scrolling a bit and then opening the log, I do get the window's title in the NVDA object's name, but I don't see any text.  Perhaps the console is structured with every line of text being a different NVDA object, but even so I guess I should have been able to read the line in review mode and see the content of the line, perhaps in the value property.  That opens a new strategy though, I'll try to gather information on the entire window with systematic inspection of all children.  I'm just surprised it's so hard.


Thanks again,


Vincent

If you can get the content with the screen review just go there and hit NVDA-1. That openes the NVDA log with all information of the object at the end of the file. There you will find the className and Control-ID. Maybe you can take it from there.

Hi list,


Sorry if I'm off-topic, should I have sent it to the development list? Isn't it trivial?


This has been asked many, many times (perhaps indicating this information is hard to find). So here I am, trying to implement yet a new appModule for a very specific reason and a very specific software. The software in question displays information in the console and this information isn't "spoken" automatically anymore by NVDA. Should be a simple fix right? But admittedly, it forces one to introspect on the generated NVDA objects and try to figure where the information is.


So I open the app. I press some keys. I can read the content in review mode just fine. I press NVDA+CTRL+Z to open the Python console and then inspect the 'focus', 'fg' and 'nav' objects (wasn't sure of the difference in the first place). All of them can, thank goodness, point to the window title in their name. But I can't find a way (either easy or complicated) to get to the window text, the one you can access with the review mode. So, since this can be accessed with numpad7 and numpad9, I guess NVDA can see it just fine. I would just like to automate, so that new lines of text are sent to NVDA and its supported Braille display if anything happens (yes, this used to work, but this would be a perfect opportunity to dive into appModules).


In short, I need some data. I would need to plug into some kind of event. I would need for my appModule to watch for this event and, when it triggers, optionally send some text to NVDA. How am I going to find the data itself? Shouldn't opening the app and opening the NVDA console and examining the generated object would have led to the answer? (For the record, I'm afraid I couldn't examine every single generated object, I concentrated on 'focus, 'fg' and 'nav, their parent and their parent's children, with no luck).


Any help on this would be appreciated.


Thanks in advance,


Vincent

It seems t have improved reading from the mouse pointer except were three Headings in the Email in which case reading is about 5 lines below the pointer.
