Re: how can I set symbol pronounciation for special case?

 
Edited

Sam,

          I would do this using the speech dictionary and a regular expression for the item.  If I am safe in assuming that the thing with the prime in front of it will always be a single letter, preceded by a space, and you are not using single quotes to enclose phrases (at least not commonly), then try this:

1. NVDA+P,D,D  to open NVDA Preferences, Speech Dictionaries, Default Dictionary
2. Activate the Add Button
3. In pattern, place the following:  ([a-zA-Z])'
4. In replacement, place the following:  \1 prime
5. In comment make whatever note you'd like, I said mathematical prime
6. Don't check the case insensitive checkbox.
7. Activate the Regular Expression radio button.

If you do use single quotes frequently to enclose phrases, e.g., 'this phrase enclosed with single quotes,' I can try to get more sophisticated and use lookback in the regular expression to avoid instance for single quoted phrases.   As the regular expression I gave is currently constructed, it will match only a single character that's a lowercase or uppercase letter followed by the prime single quote.

I tested this in Notepad and its working.

Hi,

Microsoft may have not updated their documentation, and if so, expect a feedback to be raised about it to Microsoft Edge team.

No, Ron, it's not.  There is no ALT+X shortcut in new Edge.  Microsoft always publishes its keyboard shortcuts for its products, and new Edge is no exception:

ALT+F or ALT,DownArrow will bring up the Edge menu (just like it brings up the Chrome menu, Brave Menu, and all other Chromium-based browser menus).

You have something really, really weird going on, and that needs to be addressed.  But ALT+X is not a valid keyboard shortcut for new Edge, when working correctly, period.  It does nothing and is not documented as a keyboard shortcut for Chromium-based Edge.

Hi, Brian,

 

I have the new Microsoft edge and I can verify that alt X doesn’t work. You have to use the alt key or alt F like you would in chrome.

This is one of the reasons why I beg, plead, and nag for people to look up their software version numbers.  Asserting you have something (and that's any you, not just you, Ron) and verifying what you have are two different things.

If you want the new stable Edge then you need to go to the Microsoft Edge Page, activate the Download for Windows 10 button, and go through the rest of the process for installing it.

Hi,

To expand on what Brian wrote: to find out which Edge you’ve got, from Edge window, press NVDA+F1 to open log viewer. One of the information recorded is app (product) version you’ve got. If appModule.productVersion says:

  • 79 or higher: new Edge
  • Under 79: old Edge

At this point, I recommend installing Edge 81 or later (although you’ll lose PDF reading functionality for a while, it is fixed in Edge 83 development builds; I’ll write a companion message to Win10 forum).

Joseph

how can I set symbol pronounciation for special case?

Samuel Kacer
 

Hello,

I find myself reading math a lot and very commonparticular in propositional logic and proofs is to differentiate two variables that are related but different by putting a single quote at the end of one of them. Example:
x and x' (read by symbol to notice the difference)

In math, The secon would be read as "x prime".

If you can see then it is easy to notice the distinction, but since screen readers try to avoid reading irrelevant information, this is skipped by default.

I noticed NVDA allows you to set symbol pronunciation including for special cases like being sentence ending or phrase ending, etc.

What I'd like to achieve is when a single quote is at the end of a word and pronunciation level is most, for NVDA to read it as "word prime". 

I tried several different things, but none of them achieved this.

I know I can make it so single quotes are read at most level, but then it will be read out when it isnt relevant to me. I just want to know about it when it is at the end of a word.

Really appreciate if someone can help with this. 

Thanks,
Sam

locked Re: Menus In New Microsoft Edge

 

Forgot to note:  ALT+X is the menu button in the Original Edge, that is unquestionable.

You do not have the new Edge, and I'll bet if you do ALT+X, Open the Settings item, and scroll to the bottom of the General Settings, which opens initially, you are going to find, under the About this app section exactly what follows or a version number very close to it:

Microsoft Edge 44.18362.449.0
Microsoft EdgeHTML 18.18363

That is absolutely, positively not new Edge.

Hi Group,

Remember a few days ago when I was saying that the alt + keystrokes weren't working in the new Microsoft Edge. I was saying that alt + F and alt + S weren't working to bring up the system menus or anything else. I guess that's because the proper keystroke is alt + X. It helps if you know the proper keystrokes.

The reason I am sending this message is because I got a half dozen references to what I should do to bring up the system menus and such. They were all wrong apparently.

Again, the proper keystroke is alt + X. That brings you up to all the items you usually get with traditional drop down or pull down menus in Firefox, the old Internet Explorer and such.
You then have to use a kind of combination tree view where you collapse and expand items with left/right arrow keys and also a kind of dialogue where you move up and down with arrow keys and press enter on items or note the proper keystrokes: control + I for favorites, Control + J for downloads, reading list Control + M and so on.

For settings, you have to press enter on that item and then it opens up the tabs such as general, advanced, privacy and security and so on.
The major issue with this menu structure is that you can't move by first letter navigation. I have over a hundred favorites in 14 folders. I have to arrow through these folders and bookmarks to find the one I want. Maybe this could be addressed by sending a bug report to Microsoft and seeing if they can do anything about it.

Re: Groups.io: Managing your group subscription and e-mailing options #adminnotice

 

Hello All,

What follows is a repeat of the informational message about how to manage your subscription and, more importantly, e-mail options under Groups.io.  The general principle applies across groups, but you would have to use the appropriate Groups.io mailing address for the specific group you wish to change.  The examples are for the NVDA Group

         Just like you subscribed yourself, should you wish to unsubscribe you can, and should, unsubscribe yourself.  Sending an e-mail message to  nvda+unsubscribe@nvda.groups.io will unsubscribe you.  You will also receive one final message that you have been unsubscribed.  If you do not receive your unsubscribe confirmation, then please send a message to the group owner address and we will research why it is failing.  It very seldom does.

          You also have the option of remaining subscribed, but putting yourself on "no mail" status.  Should you wish to do that instead, send a message to  nvda+nomail@nvda.groups.io.   You can pick up with mailing again at any time by sending a message to the one of the group email management addresses:

nvda+single@nvda.groups.io 

To receive individual messages instead of digests or a summary

nvda+fulldigest@nvda.groups.io 

To receive full featured digests instead of individual messages

nvda+summary@nvda.groups.io 

To receive a daily summary instead of individual messages

nvda+digest@nvda.groups.io 

To receive plain digests instead of individual messages

nvda+special@nvda.groups.io 

To receive special notices only

You can also use any one of the above noted e-mail management addresses to change how you receive information from the group at any time and switch what you receive whenever you wish.  Please be certain to use one of the exact e-mail addresses above.  In virtually all cases, you will get some sort of an automated confirmation message back from Groups.io noting the change.  In the case of requesting to be put on no mail status, you will receive one message saying that the request has been received to which you need to reply to confirm.  After replying you receive another message confirming you have been placed on no mail status.

Re: How can I get the date from a Braille display?

I got this solved for now by adding an input gesture attached to the Braille Display (Dots 2,3,4,5,7 Chord). This seems to register when I press it 2 or 3 times.

Hi Daniel,

Sorry for the late reply.

With Braille Extender, you have a special command to show hour & date. By default, on Freedom Scientific displays, it's mapped to dots(1+2+5+7)+space.

I'll try to work around the possibility to emulate shortcuts pressed several time quickly.

Hi all,

 

On a laptop keyboard, I am able to get the date by pressing NVDA F12 twice quickly.

 

On my Freedom Scientific Focus40 Blue, I can’t seem to do two presses quickly of NVDA+F12. The second press of F12 just sends an F12 through and I get the Save As dialog.

 

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

 

Daniel
