Re: Wreckless drivers

Felix G.
 

Hi Brian and list,
couldn't have picked a better subject.
It's a known issue and probably applies to all Braille display
manufacturers. Narrator uses BRLTTY for its communication with Braille
displays, and on Windows, BRLTTY requires an alternative LibUSB-based
driver. So right now the only way to use a Braille display with both
Narrator and another screen reader is to switch drivers.
Best,
Felix

I got braille to work with windows narrator, but there is a problem.
In the settings under "choose a default driver for your braille display" there are three possible drivers listed, to wit:
libusb win32 freedom scientific focus 3, 1 of 3
narrator: libusb1.0 freedom scientific focus 3, 2 of 3
focus 3 braille display usb 3 of 3

If I choose the second driver narrator outputs braille, but nvda will not.
If I choose the third driver nvda outputs braille but narrator will not.
What's a poor widow to do? I need both screenreaders to do dots.

Can I somehow get narrator to use the second driver and nvda to use the third driver automatically?
Maybe using the old assoc command (I am comfortable using terminal commands)?
Any suggestions are appreciated.

hi. you can't do it, yet. you need to evrytime change driver when switching screen readers.

Re: backing up thunderbird

 

If you have POP, rather than IMAP, turned on, you will have a much harder time transferring messages. You may want to check your gmail settings and disable pop, I really don't get why people download messages anyway, and make sure that IMAP is actually enabled. Both could be off, which is why gmail won't connect straight away if you've never poked about in the settings. If you use IMAP, all your messages go with you, no matter where you are, because TB is fetching them from the server directly. POP, you'd have to manually transfer all your messages from machine to machine because POP settings download the messages, and is not accessing the message info directly. I gotta run, so can't give keyboard instructions on how to change these settings in gmail, but if using the basic view, on the gmail website, go to the settings link, then go to the, forwarding/pop IMAP link inside settings. The settings are radio buttons that say enable or disable for either pop or IMAP.

Re: NVDA release date was Re: [nvda] Easier way to edit exception dictionary?

Antony Stone
 

That is correct - changing the subject line does not create a new thread. It
simply continues the existing thread with a different subject.

To create a new thread, you must create a new email, to the list address
(which is NVDA@NVDA.Groups.IO in this case), with whatever subject line you
require for the new thread.

As a general rule, using "reply" will always continue a thread, never create a
new one, because the information about which thread you are replying to is
carried across into the headers of your reply.

Regards,


Antony.

Re: Easier way to edit exception dictionary?

What?
Actually I think the dictionaries have kind of grown over the years and perhaps the current way they are edited is now not so convenient as it used to be as there are so many conditions you can change on them.
I'm not sure how high up the ladder of priority this might be, but you can certainly suggest it on that page which was published a while back now. If enough want it then it might be a good one to do. I did wonder if it might be something an add o might be able to do?

Marcio, Here's Giles reply reposted as you requested:

The easiest way I've found to edit or delete words in a dictionary
with many entries is to go to  AppDate/Roaming/NVDA/speechDicts and
then open either the default.dic file or a dictionary in one  of the
voiceDicts folder in a text editor like Notepad where you can use the
normal search methods  to find the word, or part of a word, pattern or
its replacement.
In the file the flag for whether it is case sensative is 1 for true
and 0 for false. The second  number is the flag for whether it is
anywehre, whole word only or a regular expression ... anywehre  is 0,
regular expression is 1 and whole word is 2.
For example, a entry I added the other day was to get the word dynasty
to be pronounced the UK way  rather than the American way. This is the
line of the default.dic file ... in case it doesn't show  up here I'll
indicate the tab character with [tab] dynasty[tab]dinasty[tab]0[tab]0
If you make edits to a dictionary file then you have to re-start NVDA
for the dictionary edits to  take effect, but it is often far easier
doing it that way than trying to find the word you want to  edit in
the NVDA dictionary manager.
Hope you find this useful :)

Re: Easier way to edit exception dictionary?

Marcio, Here's Giles reply reposted as you requested:

The easiest way I've found to edit or delete words in a dictionary
with many entries is to go to AppDate/Roaming/NVDA/speechDicts and
then open either the default.dic file or a dictionary in one of the
voiceDicts folder in a text editor like Notepad where you can use the
normal search methods to find the word, or part of a word, pattern or
its replacement.
In the file the flag for whether it is case sensative is 1 for true
and 0 for false. The second number is the flag for whether it is
anywehre, whole word only or a regular expression ... anywehre is 0,
regular expression is 1 and whole word is 2.
For example, a entry I added the other day was to get the word dynasty
to be pronounced the UK way rather than the American way. This is the
line of the default.dic file ... in case it doesn't show up here I'll
indicate the tab character with [tab] dynasty[tab]dinasty[tab]0[tab]0
If you make edits to a dictionary file then you have to re-start NVDA
for the dictionary edits to take effect, but it is often far easier
doing it that way than trying to find the word you want to edit in
the NVDA dictionary manager.
Hope you find this useful :)

Hi,
I've been off most of the time today and I'm still finishing reading the
emails for the day.
By accident, I ended up deleting Gile's explanation on this thread about
numbers for editing words on NVDA dictionaries.
Anyone would be kind enough to repost it or just tell me what are these
numbers and what each of them does?

Thanks a million and I apologize for being so careless, I'll be better
next time :)

Cheers,
Marcio

I guess the hard part is that the violin doesn't have frets like a guitar does.

Hi, Cisco,

Welcome to this great list. Wow, that's neat you play 3 different musical instruments. I tried taking the violin years ago but I only got as far as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I can play a little bit of the piano and my dad taught me how to play the guitar when I was living at home. Need to get back into practice.

Take care. I hope you'll enjpoy our community.
