Hi, is Google OCR  free? Or do you have to pay for it? I will look it up. But I’m lazy! Lol.

Yes, turn it on with nvda shift s, then tab twice, I believe? Read the manual for more info, as I'm giving you the long and short of it.

I would look at text cloner from premier literacy, hope I spelled that correctly.
I know of two blind people using it with great success and it is completely accessible and about $129.00 if I am not mistaken.
Hope this helps,

Braille input focus 40 blue 5th gen and NVDA

Justin Harford
 

Greetings everyone

I'm trying to learn about the braille display offerings out there to get a sense of a good match. I was recommended to take a look at the focus 40 blue fifth-generation. I read through their documentation and it almost sort of sounds like according to the brochure the ability to input braille is limited to when you are using JAWS, but when I look at the online manual from the company, it vaguely seems like any screenreader that supports braille input would work. Has anyone successfully used the focus 40 blue with NVDA to input braille?

That's an interesting question.  It may be what is known as a live region.
As far as I know, NVDA doesn't support not automatically reading live
regions.  I don't know about other screen-readers,  But in such a case, I
would suggest the following if you only want to rread content.
Select the entire page with control a and paste it to the clipboard.  Open
Notepad and paste it.  Then look for the beginning of the article, if your
screen-reader doesn't allow you to stop automatic reading of live regions.

Luke,

Unfortunately, though I get what you're saying, it just doesn't work that way.  It is up to the vendor, and the vendor alone, in consort with the purchaser to get something to work.  If the "some version" is hacked/cracked the law does not care, at all, that someone holds a valid license, as if they do they should be using a valid copy.

Given that my name has been dropped in this, I think it behooves me to explain.

In this particular case, Grant had a paid Eloquence license from Code Factory, which could not be activated on his Win 10 machine. AT Guys sent him to Code Factory for support, and repeated attempts to contact Code Factory failed to obtain any response or results.

I did not see any ethical issue with making some version of Eloquence work under such circumstances, since he already had a valid paid license that the vendor wouldn't help him use.

Out of curiosity did you have a add blocker on? and when you disabled it you were able to watch those shows again?


Depending if the player can be seen might of not given you options unless it was.

Let me encourage you to beware of CodeFactory.

I bought the CodeFactory Eloquence about two years ago from CodeFactory, mostly because I had become used to Eloquence with JAWS.

After installing and reinstalling it without success, our IT Department (and we have over 1,000 employees and an IT staff of over 20 people), CodeFactory’s technical support just said “Sorry.”

Certainly, our level of security is higher than most, but for technical support simply to give up and not even offer a refund left our IT Department and me amazed. What kind of organization does that?

It was only $30, but for me, it is a matter of integrity. I might have refused an offer of a refund, but not even to offer one spoke volumes to me about the integrity of the organization.

I’m happy with Microsoft’s One Core voices. In fact, when I use JAWS with Eloquence, it is just a bit unpleasant now.
