Re: possible long-standing bug

Bob Cavanaugh
 

I 100% agree, in fact I remember suggesting something very similar to
what this add-on does years ago. I'll have to check out how NVDA
responds when I get this installed, as this may solve the problem I am
describing. Some of the commands I'm used to work with only slight
modification, but again, NVDA doesn't read as expected. I've found
that numpad insert+the down arrow key works just fine to read to end
as does JAWS and System Access.

I can't say how others would react if such speech were added or if it should

be added as default behavior. I consider it to be annoyingly intrusive.

I can't comment on Excel (spelling) in terms of what feedback may be
important but when moving through a list of files, the top one is announced

when you move to it and the bottom one is. I already discussed documents.

You can read about and down load the add-on at:
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/numpadNavMode.en.html

The add-on allows the user to use numpad insert numpad 2 for read to end.
This may be a real convenience to JAWS users who are used to constantly
using that command. I have long thought that it should be made available in

NVDA because it is such a convenient way of initiating read to end. I can
move up and down by line using numpad 8 to move up and numpad 2 to move down

and use insert numpad insert 2 to initiate read to end when I get to where I

want to do that. Not only is it more convenient than any means available in

NVDA without changing input commands, but it is important for people with
problems using two hands. It is a very convenient one-hand command to
initiate read to end.

I think this is important enough that this add-on should be incorporated
into the core and that it be discussed on the transition page for JAWS users

and in the manual and training material.

I don't have any add-ons on this copy of NVDA, the only one I ever
used was the OCR one on my desktop. I'll have to look into the add-on
that changes the numpad functions, as I'd like to be able to fully use
the normal numpad functions when running NVDA. What's that add-on
called? Even without it, some of the Windows commands work that use
the numpad's Windows functions, but what I'd like is for NVDA to give
some kind of feedback about that. JAWS says "top of file" and System
Access simply reads the first line when the command is pressed to go
to the top of the file. NVDA says nothing until another action is
taken. I'm not familiar with what JAWS says when switching sheets in
Excel as it's been years since I've used those two programs together,
but System Access says the name of the sheet as soon as you press the
command to change sheets, while NVDA requires a press of an additional
command to make sure that you have indeed switched sheets.

The add-on is evidently being used that disables the numpad in its
default
functions for NVDA review commands. If this is done, NVDA 7 does
function
as home, its default function in Windows if no program is using that key
for
its own purpose. It should be specified that the add-on is being used if
it
is. Saying something like have the numpad off is confusing and isn't
accurate. The numpad is functioning, it is performing its Windows
functions.

numpad, it does not. For instance, with the numpad off, 7 acts as the
home key, with control+home moving to the top of the file. It's been a
while since I've tried this using the actual home key, but while
control+numpad 7 works as expected, there is no verbal indication that
it does so, it's only by using the arrow keys to move around the

Re: NVDA OCR and what it presents afterward

 

One addition with regard to PDF-XChange Viewer's OCR function:

The OCR functionality supports a base language set of English, French, German and Spanish. Additional language extension packages are available here.

I once had a client using it on Swedish texts, which is one of the optional languages available.  The language extension packages are also free.

Re: NVDA OCR and what it presents afterward

I haven't seen it discussed and I haven't used the OCR feature in the program. It sounds as though that is what you will have to do but there are alternatives to using NVDA, which I expect will be discussed.

I use Openbook but that isn't a practical alternative in your case and I haven't followed the discussions about free alternatives carefully.

Re: NVDA OCR and what it presents afterward

 
Edited

Resending since the webpage where you download PDF-XChange Viewer has changed since originally written.  Link is now correct.

The question of OCR scanning Image Scanned PDFs that one knows contain text comes up again and again.  If you don't want to invest some huge amount of money in a fully dedicated specialty OCR suite there is an excellent option available for free from Tracker Software:  PDF-XChange Viewer.

This software is not 100% accessible, but what you need to perform an OCR scan on an Image Scanned PDF is.

You have nothing to lose but a few minutes time to test out either PDF-XChange Viewer (which uses the "old Windows interface style" and I know to be accessible for running OCR) or the free edition of PDF-XChange Editor to check out whether it suits your needs.  I personally prefer PDF-XChange Viewer.  Here are the step-by-step instructions I wrote for a client who was a grad student who kept having old image scanned PDFs assigned for reading by various professors on how to OCR process them using PDF-XChange Viewer:

Used when you receive a PDF that was scanned without Optical Character Recognition.  For reading stick to Adobe Reader or other reader of your choice as PDF-XChange Viewer is not 100% accessible.

1.     Open PDF-XChange Viewer from your start menu or the desktop.

2.     ALT+F, O  Open a file, you’ll need to know where it is and navigate there in the Open Dialog, which is very much like File Explorer.

3.     CTRL+SHIFT+C  Perform optical character recognition on the file.  This will be quick for small files, 20 pages or less, but will take some time for very large files, hundreds of pages.  Listen for the process to complete.

4.     ALT+F, S  Save the file over itself with the OCR text now included.  If you wish to save the file under a different name and keep the original use ALT+F, A Save As to do this instead.

Once you have done the OCR processing and saved the file afterward, the text layer is a permanent part of that PDF file, and does not have to be processed again.

I actually did not know that NVDA OCR presents a page at a time.  This is
most likely because my standard advice is to do OCR processing before
opening a document, usually PDF, in a screen reader.  Using that technique
creates a text layer for the entire document prior to it ever being handed
to the screen reader, and you get a result that's the one you're asking for
here.

Re: problem while useing Orbit reader braille display

 

Not that it is in any way inappropriate to mention having a problem here, and trying to determine if others are having it, but this is definitely not the place to try to make a bug report if you want the development team at NVDA to know about it and address it.

NVAccess manages NVDA on GitHub, and end users can create a GitHub account so they can then submit bug reports.  If you need additional information on that I can give it if requested.

There was a topic in 2019 on an issue with the Orbit 20 and NVDA, see:  Orbit Reader 20 and NVDA 2019.2
that could potentially be applicable here.  Have a look to determine that for yourself.

Log files or log file segments are not to be posted to the group.  It's fine to say you have one that can be sent to an assistant upon request, but please do not post logs or segments of logs on the group.  Attachments of any sort are stripped for messages sent to the NVDA Group.

Microsoft Raul Spanish voice Missing from NVDA?

Samuel Villa <sjv89550@...>
 

Good morning,

I installed the Spanish voices from the add a TTS language section of Windows 10. When I go to my voice settings in narrator, I find that Microsoft Raul is listed. But when I go to NVDA, I don't see him there. Am I missing a step? Thanks a lot.

Re: Is it possible to get rid of Cortana?

 

Nevzat,

            That's not typical behavior I've encountered before.  You used to be able to fully disable Cortana, and I had for a very long time.  As of Version 20H2 of Windows 10 she has reappeared on the taskbar, but remained silent for me.  I just got rid of the button using the context menu for the Taskbar.

             Bring up the context menu for the Taskbar and make sure that the "Show Cortana" option is unchecked.  If it's not present to try to draw focus, and you don't use Cortana, that might very well do the trick.

Re: NVDA OCR and what it presents afterward

 

Topic has been retitled for clarity and archival purposes.  Please make ongoing responses to messages with the new title.

I actually did not know that NVDA OCR presents a page at a time.  This is most likely because my standard advice is to do OCR processing before opening a document, usually PDF, in a screen reader.  Using that technique creates a text layer for the entire document prior to it ever being handed to the screen reader, and you get a result that's the one you're asking for here.

NVDA Navigation Using Touch Gestures and Setting Up Custom Gestures

Khalid Anwar
 

Moderators Note:  I am allowing this topic because it does contain questions specific to NVDA that deserve answers.  That being said, copy and paste are operating system functions, as is, in the case of IOS, the Rotor.  Please stick to the NVDA aspects here.  If in depth discussion of the touch gestures for Windows functions is required, those would best be asked either on the Chat Subgroup or the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users Group (and would be territory not yet asked about much at all).

I'm thinking about trading in my iPad for a Microsoft surface tablet, because I like the idea of having a windows machine that can be both a laptop and tablet combined.
But I do have some concerns about NVDA touch gestures and was wondering if anyone might be able to help.

One thing I wanted to know was how to select copy and paste text using only the touchscreen and touch gestures with NVDA if such a thing is possible,  The other thing is that I know NVDA doesn't have a rotor like iOS so how do you select different granularities to navigate by such as buttons links and headings, how do you then use these to navigate the webpage, what gestures are required? Also, I've looked in the manual for some information about the input gestures dialogue but just wanted some advice, what gestures can you select and how much programming knowledge do you need in order to set up a custom gestures?

I don't think you can get rid of it but it can be disabled.

Per documentation whichI hope is present in the manual, the document only shown 1 screen at a time. If and only if the document can show up on 1 screen will the whole thing show up else you only see the screen with maybe that one sentence that ocr was able to capture.

Hi gurus

I trust you are well.

I am trying to cope.

I am troubled by nvda.

I cannot understand why nvda does not show up all the information even
after the OCR process has been made.

It says that the document has been recognised, but only a sentence or
a page is shown up.

Why is that? How do I make it do that?

Please help.
