Hello all,

Anyone has experience in using Signal desktop app with nvda?

I wanna know how is it working with nvda?

Thanks.


Re: Welsh language voices

Gloomy_Apple
 

   Not a Welsh native, but a learner. From what I see the situation looks quite sad. There used to be two Welsh voices from Ivona - Geraint and Gwyneth - in both a Welsh-language (South) and Welsh English version. I used to have them for a long time but then lost them irretrievably. Can't say a whole lot about how authentic their Welsh was, because mine was too much beginner at the time, but I think Ivona was generally fairly good at the linguistic aspect of their voices. Now that the company has been taken by Amazon years ago, the voices can be no longer purchased directly from them for Sapi5 though and are no longer supported. There are some places where you can get them, like from HarpoSoftware, but when I tried demos they seemed rather buggy.

   And then we have Espeak, which is not surprisingly not very authentic-sounding in Welsh at all. I guess I've once heard that there was a Welsh Festival voice but never heard it or tested it and I generally don't have much experience with Festival at all. And that's it, as far as I know.

   If someone else knows more, I'd be happy to hear as well.

   I am sort of silently hoping for CereProc to make the move now, as they are a Scottish company who have already created Scottish Gaelic and Irish Gaelic voices, as well as many regional dialect British voices so why not Welsh. As a North Welsh learner I think it would be particularly fun to have the voices for these two dialects, but that's probably a total utopia for now.

Hi, Mo, have tried all these but none seem to work.

 

On a separate issue, my brother came and installed the set-top-box you kindly sent to me. I have been having some problems with some stations keep saying ‘no signal’ but on a cursory glance at the Freeview site I note there is work taking place on the Waltham transmitter which is the one my box is using.

 

Thanks, Steve Thacker

Hi.

You need to press insert and the number 2 on the top number row to turn reading of characters off. then press insert number 3 to turn on the reading of words if you haven't already done so. I hope this helps?

Cheers,

If your cursor is on the character, or the review cursor is, pressing the

numpad 2 key twice (desktop mode), will read the character phonetically.

 

If you want it to just read phonetically if you pause on a character while

using the arrow keys, like iOS Voiceover does in character mode, there is

an add-on for that, although I can't find it currently.

Re: Finding Pairing Code for Bluetooth Keyboard using NVDA - How to?

 

Dennis,

The following, from the accessibilitycentral.net page, Migrating from other screen readers to the NVDA screen reader, that may prove useful to you:

Is there something equivalent to JAWS cursor and other mouse commands in NVDA?

Yes. The screen review allows reading the contents of the current window. To switch to screen review, press NVDA + Numpad 7. Once you locate the position where you wish to perform mouse clicks, route the mouse by pressing NVDA + Numpad slash, then press Numpad slash for left mouse click or Numpad star for right mouse click. To switch to object review, press NVDA + Numpad 1.

Finding Pairing Code for Bluetooth Keyboard using NVDA - How to?

dennis huckle
 

Hello all,

I tried to pair a Bluetooth keyboard using nvda.

Using a usb keyboard I followed the procedure and pressed enter when the Bluetooth keyboard was seen by Bluetooth.

I couldn’t find the pairing code on screen so had to revert to jaws and use the jaws cursor to obtain that code.

How can I achieve this using nvda.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.

If I am reading 50 pages document.

I read few pages. I wants to stop here. now how can I know, in which

page I am on?

2. In the same way can I know, line number?

3. If I press page up, my cursor will be in first line of previous page.

In the same way is there any trick, so that I can go to end of the same page?

4. Is there any shortcut key to read whole page?

Hi David,

 

The win key plus the end key reads the status line;  so what you hear depends on what is in focus.

Maybe it is  a windows key combo and not  a nvda combo.

It works, I’m happy

The page number and line number can be displayed in the status bar.

You can read the status bar with NVDA+End and can access it, to read and configure, with the Word command F6.



If I am reading 50 pages document.
I read few pages. I wants to stop here. now how can I know, in which
page I am on?

Remember that the recent versions of Word already remember the place where you stopped previously...



3. If I press page up, my cursor will be in first line of previous page.
In the same way is there any trick, so that I can go to end of the same page?

Press Control+PageDown to go to next page and than press arrow up to go to last line of previous page...



4. Is there any shortcut key to read whole page?

No.

And vocalizer voices, finding a working demo is quite hard, you download from 2-3 places and all not compatible with nvda above 2019.3, then you find one with eloquence which is also buggy.

For foreign language users, such as Arabic, finding a suitable voice without using a cracked version is quite difficult. And the situation hasn’t improved yet.

Hi.

 

Subject says it all.

 

I was mucking about looking at what extras I could buy for the system I

have and found that infovox4 which a few of us have managed to afford is

going out of support sometime next year.

 

Due to changes in markets and sales, acapella is dropping this product.

 

More likely in my opinion they can't keep up with all the new windows

updates, with windows 11 coming out later on who knows.

 

Up shot of this is that the only massive voice pack apart from orpheus

you can get is sadly the codefactory voices.

 

You can buy the acapella voices for nvda but I really want more sapi

voices and I want to be able to buy big packages instead of by the voice.
