Re: CodeFactory eloquence addon and oneCore voices

Ed Marquette
 

I hope you have administrator authority.
We tried what you suggested, namely, installing at home outside of all of the security restrictions. It worked; however, when we tried to use it in the office without administrator privileges, the system failed again.
System apparently requires administrator privileges to stay authorized.
That is a very poor poor design.

Hi,

I just tested out the CodeFactory eloquence and vocalizer addon by activating a trial of it on my RCA cambio tablet with intel atom z8350 processor, 2gigs ram and 32gb EMMC ssd drive. It works good with no crackling. And then, next, I loaded my sapi5 eloquence, and set the settings the same as the CodeFactory nvda-addon. And really I cannot tell any difference between the two. They are both just as responsive, they both are stable and work good. I think that next month I will just save my money and buy the vocalizer CodeFactory sapi5 voices, and leave it at that. And some day if and when I ever have a job that requires me to take NVDA from computer to computer on a USB stick, then I’ll buy the CodeFactory nvda-addon. Oh and to the person having issues activating the CodeFactory eloquence and vocalizer NVDA addon… Why not install it at home, activate it at home in a place where you know the activation process works, then once its activated and you have all the voices you want and need, copy the whole thing including addons to a USB stick, take it to your work machine and install NVDA off the USB stick? Not sure if that would work and if it would stay activated or not. But the one thing I like about the CodeFactory sapi5 voices is that they also work with narrator. And I did use feedback hub to write to Microsoft and I asked them to let us change advanced oneCore voice settings so we can adjust when and how the voices pause while reading. So I hope they implement those changes.

Re: windows oneCore voices pause for punctuation

Giles Turnbull
 

Hi Josh,

not as far as I'm aware. I actually would like to do the opposite, occasionally be able to make punctuation pause longer! Sometimes I use NVDA to perform poetry to an audience (my memory capacity is for about half an hour of my own work so for longer sets than that I use NVDA). It would be nice to be able to fine-tune the pause, or to combine a full stop / period with a comma to get a little longer pause, but sadly that doesn't seem to work and only the synth makers could alter the synth to pause for shorter or longer.

I'd love to know if anybody has found a way of adjusting punctuation pausing :)

Re: Giving the right amount of feedback

Gene
 

Its an interesting question, but I don't know if it is possible or practical.  There may be too much possible variation and it may cause problems that don't exist now, with things being read inappropriately.  I'm speaking as a user who is not a tech and other technically knowledgeable people may have more accurate comments and opinions. 
 
I think that, what would be far more useful, is a simple list of a few things or one or two, depending on the situation, of things to do if a problem occurs. 
 
First, as your example illustrates, people often waste a lot of time because they have the idea that you have to wait for long times if something goes wrong.  I've heard of people letting their computer sit for fifteen minutes or even hours if something happens such as an installation stopping or something hanging.  That shows a complete lack of knowledge about what should be expected.  What is the maximum time that people should wait?  I don't know, but I doubt it is more then three or four minutes. 
 
Also, people should be taught to check and not just wait, even a short time after something like a freeze or something temporarily stopping.  Take your case, for example.  I wouldn't be surprised if the program started functioning somewhere between ten and thirty or forty seconts after the not responding message. 
 
If you tabbed frequently to see what happened, you wouldn't have changed anything, except your position on the page and you wouldn't have waited, based on an estimage with no basis in what was actually going on with the operating system and the program.
 
Also, people should know certain very elementary knowledge such as the following:
Losing speech may or may not mean that your screen-reader has stopped working.  It may mean that the synthesizer has stopped working.  What to do if a screen-reader stops should be one of the early things taught.  I'm not sure what the best procedures are or the best order if speech is lost when using NVDA.  I know what the best procedures and order are on my systems, but my systems don't represent whatever the average system is and my procedures may not be the order to be stated as a general pattern.  But clear and simple instructions, do this, then do that, etc. should be provided. 
 
In short. screen-readers are complex programs and they interact with a complex operating system.  My opinion is that it is far more important, and may be far more useful for users to be taught simple points about what to do.
 
Also, screen-readers don't necessarily react in the best manner for efficient use in some situations.  Users should be given simple instructions about getting rid of excess verbosity.
 
For example, if you do a search on a web page, using NVDA search, you will hear a lot of extra verbosity when a result is found.  When you hear speech, issue read current line.  That stops the excess verbosity and immediately reads the line containing the search result.
When I read an e-mail message, then close the message and return to the message list, a lot of unnecessary information is spoken.  Pressing read current line immediately stops it and reads what I want.  Maybe I don't need to hear what it is saying because I know what message I am on.  If I press delete or use shift delete, that immediately stops speech and deletes the message.  But again, when my position changes to the next message, a lot of unnecessary information is read.  Read current line stops it and reads what I want to hear, information about the message I am on. 
 
These are very simple instructions and can save a lot of time, perhaps three or five seconds in the cases I've mentioned.  When added up over a lot of repetitions, you are talking about a good deal of time and likely, a lot of annoyance, which will be eliminated by following the instructions. 
 
For convenience, I use numpad 8 because it only requires one hand. 
 
You can't use a screen-reader at its best performance unless you know how to help it with instructions like this.  It appears to me that, because of the complexity of screen-readers, Windows, and programs, you need to know that where you get excessive verbosity in cases like this, that what I discussed should be tried, or if something else makes sense to try, that might be tried instead, or as well.
 
The expectation of users of screen-readers should be changed.  Screen-readers can do a lot but the user needs to know a little to get good performance in certain cases.  I assume that if such behavior could have been changed by screen-reader designers, that it would have long ago, considering the over a decade that Windows screen-readers have been around and these behaviors have been regularly encountered.  It really shouldn't have taken until now for users to be informed, as standard procedure, in instructional material about such things as I am describing and that they be taught that you can't expect screen-readers to perform ideally and you need to be on the alert for things you might do in situations of excessive verbosity such as I have described.

Subject: [nvda] Giving the right amount of feedback

Hi!
Lately I've been wondering about the research that has been done to figure out the right amount of feedback that NVDA should give in different circumstances. These thoughts were triggered by the following incident:
I opened up Chrome, and it came up "not responding" which, on a slow machine, can sometimes happen and is no immediate cause of concern for me. My Braille display kept showing "New Tab - Google Chrome (Not Responding)". I decided to wait it out before throwing key presses at it. When neither speech nor Braille updated for about two minutes, I decided to press tab and, much to my confusion, found that Chrome had recovered and was fully prepared to take my instructions.
When something goes from not responding to ready, wouldn't it be logical to expect NVDA to tell me about this transition without me having to poll?
I have a nagging suspicion, and I apologize for sounding overly critical here, that these user experience patterns are not researched at all, not even consciously specified. Rather, they are just left to random luck based on how the operating system decides to handle or propagate events. In a world where nearly every aspect of user experiences is designed and micromanaged, I feel we are lagging behind and left with unprofessional hit or miss situations. What we need are reliable, reproducible patterns or sequences which can be taught to students, fully duplicated by them, and then applied consistently, especially in workplace environments. State transitions like the one I described above must be just as obvious to the NVDA user as they are to the sighted user if he or she has been trained to recognize them.
This is not rocket science. If fifty years ago it was possible to program a computer to behave consistently enough to get people to the moon, then today it must not only be possible but trivial to program it to deal consistently with common everyday exceptions while working with email and the web. For people on the autism spectrum, for example, digital systems can be a bedrock of certainty and consistency in an otherwise random sea of white noise.
I am seeing strong indicators that user experience research in the area of screen readers is overdue. Most importantly, however, the user experience should always be a conscious decision, never left to fate or accident.
Cheers Perry



Re: taking ownership of files

Josh Kennedy
 

I wish there were an easier way overall to adjust the settings in the microsoft oneCore tts voices, ini files, maybe through the windows settings, through NVDA advanced options, or some sort of dialog box. I would use the oneCore voices if I could make them read very nice and smooth like eloquence reads.

Yes, agreed, and I am using NVDA 19.1 with Win7 on a laptop that runs Firefox 68.0.1 with no problems at all. So each person's experience can differ.

if you have a not powerful system, you need to disable multiprocess.
i remember that i disabled both multiprocess and javascript in firefox
61 which i tested, but the result was again crashing of firefox for

Re: want fire fox

We don't know why it is crashing and it probably isn't necessary to try to find out.  Just leave it as it is. 
 
Try using Firefox Portable and see if it runs properly.  If it doesn't, then there is a problem with your Windows.  If it does, then your installed version isn't worth worrying about. 
You can get the current version of firefox portable at:
 
If you have problems or questions, ask here.  The portable version does everything the installed version does including running any add-ons that are compatible with the installed version.

CodeFactory eloquence addon and oneCore voices

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,

I just tested out the CodeFactory eloquence and vocalizer addon by activating a trial of it on my RCA cambio tablet with intel atom z8350 processor, 2gigs ram and 32gb EMMC ssd drive. It works good with no crackling. And then, next, I loaded my sapi5 eloquence, and set the settings the same as the CodeFactory nvda-addon. And really I cannot tell any difference between the two. They are both just as responsive, they both are stable and work good. I think that next month I will just save my money and buy the vocalizer CodeFactory sapi5 voices, and leave it at that. And some day if and when I ever have a job that requires me to take NVDA from computer to computer on a USB stick, then I’ll buy the CodeFactory nvda-addon. Oh and to the person having issues activating the CodeFactory eloquence and vocalizer NVDA addon… Why not install it at home, activate it at home in a place where you know the activation process works, then once its activated and you have all the voices you want and need, copy the whole thing including addons to a USB stick, take it to your work machine and install NVDA off the USB stick? Not sure if that would work and if it would stay activated or not. But the one thing I like about the CodeFactory sapi5 voices is that they also work with narrator. And I did use feedback hub to write to Microsoft and I asked them to let us change advanced oneCore voice settings so we can adjust when and how the voices pause while reading. So I hope they implement those changes.

Re: Object mode

If you are using the desktop layout, its NVDA key numpad 1.  You will hear the mode you have moved to announced so you will know if you have to issue the command more than once.
 
Whenever you are in another mode, return to object navigation when you have finished.  If you don't, some NVDA commands may not work properly and there will be no indication why.

Re: Can I change NVDA key commands

 

Hi,
As I pointed out a few hours ago, input refers to not only keyboards, but
also touch gestures, braille displays, and other possibilities. There are
braille display hardware commands that are not really keyboard commands, nor
can be described accurately as gestures (for example, whiz wheels on older
Vispero (formerly Freedom Scientific) displays, scroll wheel on HumanWare
BrailleNote Apex, touchscreen input on BrailleNote Touch family, cursor
routing buttons, etc.). In case of BrailleNote Touch and Touch Plus
(internally recognized as Brailliant BI/B), it is a special case of its own
due to touch input surface - could be considered a keyboard, could be
considered a gesture, and other endless possibilities. If DictationBridge
add-on adds a possibility to define custom voice commands (or rather,
ability to add text to be used to activate a command via voice), then using
just keyboard and gestures won't make sense.
At least calling it "manage commands" makes more sense than what we have
now. It defines the purpose of that feature better, it denotes that
keyboards and touchscreens are seen as commands by NVDA (or a piece of input
gesture, for those looking at NVDA source code), and leaves room for
capturing other input possibilities without changing things later (which
does introduce visual and linguistic side effects). Having used all four
forms of input (keyboard, braille, touch, voice; five if I count using a
BrailleNote Touch Plus as a braille display with input done from the touch
surface as a separate category of its own), I think it would be best to go
for something that makes things clearer without making it more verbose,
something that describes the idea without going into specifics.
Regardless of which label gets chosen by the community, here is what I will
do:
1. I will ask translators about the new label.
2. I will edit the NVDA source code accordingly, including adding
clarifications here and there.
3. I will edit the user guide to mention the new label and add a
clarification as to which input technology NVDA can understand.
Cheers,
Joseph

I think I will retract this one. While I like the word "edit" for what the
option is doing, it is possible for edit to be taken not in the context of
altering the keys and gestures in question, but as some sort of control for
working with "edit keys" or some such silliness.

Perhaps:
Change Keys and Gestures
Modify Keys and Gestures
Key and Gesture Manager

I still find "Command Manager" or the like to be a little more opaque than
just putting something in the name about keys and gestures, or keyboard and
gestures.
