By the way, with regard to the Quick Folder Key Navigation Add-On, I strongly suggest getting this through Thunderbird's own add-on manager.  

Here's my own very brief tutorial on Thunderbird: Thunderbird Email Client Tutorial

I'd forgotten about having written that.

Although I did this new comers tutorial using jaws its still similar
with NVDA usage.
Done on the vipconduit.com website but the list for an audio plus some

Visual studio: Slowness while using with NVDA

Akash Kakkar
 

Hi all,
I'm using latest NVDA alpha along with latest Visual Studio 16.10
after the gap of many years.
I'm observing some slowness/lag while typing/cycling through
intellisense suggestions.
Is there any fix regarding it?
I'm aware that some performance improvements were made some time ago
in NVDA as far as Visual studio concerned, but here I don't feel any
improvements.
Any guidance please? I have to work on very important project.

Yes, I hear that once in awhile. I’m not bothered buy it. I heard it so often I’m not too concerned about it.

Hi Anthony

I think NVDA announces “unknown” when it encounters a control or object it cannot interpret.  I hear it spoken twice when I first sign into Windows and occasionally when browsing the internet but if I can successfully use the software on my machine, I’m not bothered about the odd “unknown” being spoken every now and then.     

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi

 

Can somebody explain to me that everytime when the NVDA screen reader is loaded, it keeps announcing the word unknown. Even when I use firefox.

Thanks in advance

A Gentle Reminder About Using Descriptive Topic Titles #adminnotice

 

Hello All,

As of late I've noticed a slide toward the use of generic topic titles that give the reader absolutely no idea what it's all about, which is what the topic title should do.  I am asking everyone to please take the following group rule very seriously.  In times of flux like we're in now, having topic titles that give a clear picture of what's being discussed is absolutely vital.

4.  Think very carefully about the title you are going to give any topic you post.  The topic is the first (and, sometimes, only) thing a member sees and that may be how they decide if they’re going to look further.   Generic titles, such as “Help Me!,” or, "Weird problem," are not helpful because they give no idea about what.  Compare that to something like, “NVDA not reading Excel cell contents,” or, “NVDA setting for pronouncing numbers,” where the exact issue where help is needed is front and center.   Even something like, “Need help with the following . . .,” lets the reader know that you are going to present a list of issues.

Hi, Anthony,

 

You might want to do a clean installation of NVDA. I don’t know what else to suggest.

Hope this helps.

Re: adding Microsoft Neural Text-to-Speech to NVDA? Is that possible?

Sarah k Alawami
 

We're working on adding the neural tts voices to the program we use for flight simming. You can get an API key and it is something like 1mb per month for the neural tts voices, which given the amount of info we use is not going to matter, and we will have a fallback to sapi when internet falls over. Well I can't code but I am taking part in the discussion and implementation of the ideas.

Hi,

In theory, it would certainly be possible to use Microsoft Azure voices with an addon, however I'm afraid it doesn't make sense at all. There are several reasons for this:

1. these voices are not installable, but always run online. You would have to make sure you always have an internet connection.
2. let's assume that you have a permanent internet connection. Even then, depending on your internet connection, you would have a very high delay compared to the locally installed voices. Even if you had a very good internet connection, the response would most likely still not be high enough to work quickly and efficiently. Everything the voice is supposed to say is calculated in the cloud and then played back. These high quality voices that are processed in the cloud were not designed for such deployments.
3. You can't just buy the Azure voices and use them at will. In the Azure cloud, everything is charged per performance, compute cores, queries, word count, etc. So depending on how you work it could get pretty expensive.

I hope I was able to explain it in an understandable way. If something is still unclear, just ask again.

Best regards
Ali

adding Microsoft Neural Text-to-Speech to NVDA? Is that possible?

Vy pham
 

Hi all,
Just wondering if there a way to purchase and add the Microsoft Azure
Neural Text-to-Speech to NVDA for personal use? I love the 2 voices
that are available for Vietnamese language, really high quality. I
checked out there site
https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/cognitive-services/text-to-speech/?ocid=AID3027325.
Based on the descriptions, these voices are for Business Enterprise
usage, at least I am not so certain. Had anyone ever tried and had
any experience adding these voices to your screen readers? Are you all
aware of anyway to buy these voices as individual licenses? Similar to
Vocalizer? Any feedback would be very helpful.
Thanks!

Re: [Solved] Problem with Bluetooth clipping words

You know this is interesting on NVDA, sound cards and bluetooth.

I run a I5 4th Gen and a I5 8th Gen with both running onboard realtech audio.have ben for a few years now and never did see any of the problems with sound. i use a lot of bluetooth like Bose headphones, Samsung buds live, viseo sound bar, and SkullCandy headphones.

Nothing not out of the normal of to chaty here and there, but all screen readers do that.

Thank you Gene and Rui. We are trying the ad-on first and so far it seems to be doing what I need. I will read the article when I have a clearer mind. With my memory loss now, I get more tired when it comes to concentration.


Thanks so much.

He provides a link from which to get it.  I haven’t read much of the article for a long time but it appears he briefly discusses how to use it and doesn’t go into a lot of detail.  But that bit is probably enough,though you may have to experiment to see what click in the system tray works well.  In other words, single left click, double click or right click. 
 
If you do a search for Silenzio from the top of the page, you will find the brief discussion.  I’m not sure if you have to repeat the search to get from the first mention of it to the discussion.

Thanks to the reply I received as to why the lines are missing some
words when down arrowing through them, it made me try disconnecting my
bluetooth speakers and that made the difference. Is there any way to
work around this problem when using a bluetooth speaker or is it a
connection problem that causes it? Just curious. Thanks.
