Hi list

I don’t know, if it’s only happen to me, or some of you notice the same thing. When I’m downloading the voice data for Vocalizer, most of the time, the download always going very slow. It took me an hour or so to get each voices to be downloaded. I’m on a 10Mbps fiber cable. Yeah I know, 10Mbps isn’t too much, but it always going well for me when I download something else other than the voices.

Any of you have the same issue?

You can buy it directly from Code Factory, or buy it from ATGuys, which I think now it is on sale. You saved $10.00 off your order

Instead of saying cap when the cursor reaches a capital letter it spells out "c a p" then pronounces the letter.

Re: ui automation

Each operating system has an accessibility framework or API where assistive technology and application  use this framework  to provide a person information on the label, state, value and role of components within the program.   For example, when you’re in an application and you hear okay button. The application could be using the accessibility framework to give you the information via your preferred screen reader such as NVDA. 

The original version of this technology was introduced into thousand approximately, called MSAA   All browsers use the UIA framework.  This framework provides a lot of properties which  screen readers do not utilise 

Note, on the Mac platform if an application doesn’t use their version of the accessibility framework then you cannot use the application. This applies on their mobile platform as well. Windows luckily you can get around this issue with such programs like NVDa and jaws   Not all applications on the window platform uses this technology either. Some applications that do use don’t necessarily use it correctly either.

Re: latest NVDA caps announcement

Have you tried restarting the PC.  If that doesn't work, try restarting NVDA with add-ons disabled and see if that makes a difference.  Next, try changing the synthesizer.  Also, which synthesizer are you using now?

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Compatibility updates to the "Golden Cursor" add-on will not be provided

 

Hello everyone,

Because Golden Cursor is an important add-on for people, I'm thinking about intervening - that is, willing to edit Golden Cursor if no-one steps up. For now editing the manifest will work, but there are changes to be made inside the add-on source code itself that will let the add-on take advantage of changes introduced in really modern NVDA releases (part of this work involves linting the add-on source code to make it readable).

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: facing some problem on gmail standard view with nvda 2021.1

Hi Farhan,

Have you rebooted the PC after updating NVDA?  I can read your message in Chrome Version 91.0.4472.124 (Official Build) (64-bit) using NVDA 2021.1 by word without problem.

If you have rebooted and it is still doing it, try NVDA+Q then down arrow to "Restart with add-ons disabled" and press ENTER.  If that fixes it, what add-ons do you have?  It may be that one of them is playing up.

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: ui automation

Quentin Christensen
 

Good question!

Basically UI Automation, or UIA, is one way NVDA uses to get information from programs, Previously this has been an option available for Microsoft Word documents (this also includes email message bodies in Outlook because of the way Outlook presents messages).  In NVDA 2021.1 we've added the ability to use UI Automation to access Excel as well.

In some cases, using UIA can give more information about a document than IA2 or other methods NVDA uses internally to find out about documents, the formatting, where the caret is, etc.  In other cases, there may not be as much information available.  Choosing a method to use is a little like picking whether to use Microsoft Word or LibreOffice Writer - you have to use all the features of one - you can't use the best bits of both.

NVDA does not use UIA for Word or Excel by default, but the options are available in NVDA's advanced settings.  In some cases it can be worth trying them if something is not working in Word (or Excel), but if you are unsure, ask here or ask us at info@...

Kind regards

Quentin.

Is 2.4 the new version?  The site wording is still the previous wording indicating that version is for 2019.3 and later.

Hi Group,

I was all set to install the latest version of NVDA, but I was given a warning that all but 2 of my add ons are incompatible. These incompatible add ons include Add On updater the one I just installed 2 days ago and Windows app essentials which I updated a week or so ago. Is this information correct or did a newer group of updates for these add ons occur in the past day or so?

Re: Nvda addons

Out of curiosity is there any reason why the features in the clip speak addon was not made part of the foundation in NVDA? I would think that knowing that you have actually triggored a command as basic as copy, paste, cut...would be important to hear.

Hi Jarek,

There is a page on the add-ons site listing the status of various add-ons for NVDA 2021.1: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/nvdacompat.en.html

I can see ClipSpeak listed there as not yet compatible - it might be worth double checking with the developer of that add-on as to where it is at.  I'm not sure about total commander.

Note that as new versions of add-ons are released, you will need to find them and download them manually - that process is not automated, although there is an "add-on updater" add-on which does do this, and which you can also find on the add-ons site: https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html

Kind regards

Quentin.

Re: Training Materials

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Bob,

I'm the one you need to help with this :)

We've just recently updated the Basic Training to ensure it is up to date.  We considered offering a discount to those who did purchase the original version back in 2016 / 2017, and in the end we decided to offer a straight 50% discount to everyone, and it's still on sale in our shop: https://www.nvaccess.org/product/basic-training-for-nvda-ebook/

In uploading the new version, I made one small error during the process, which broke the download for some users who had previously purchased earlier versions of the material.  I do apologise for that.

I've just emailed you with your version of Basic Training for NVDA.  If you are interested in the newer edition, we have it on sale as noted, at the previous link.

The zip file includes the module in as a Microsoft Word .docx document, as a .html web page, as an .ePub eBook, and as a Kindle .kfx book.  If you've got a Kindle device (or use the Kindle app for PC or on your phone), you should be able to download that version and open it in that.

Kind regards, and apologies for the inconvenience.

Quentin.

Hello, everyone.

I’m not quite sure where this message belongs, so I apologize if it’s in the wrong place.

In 2019, I purchased the training materials from the online shop. One purchase was for the NVDA basic training, and the other was for training books for Microsoft word and Microsoft excel.

I had downloaded all of the manuals to my old phone. I ended up having to sell the phone because of financial issues. On the shop website, I’m given the option to download the books for Microsoft word in for Microsoft XL, but not for the basic training manual.

I was thinking about just re-investing in the basic training manual, but through the Kindle app this time…

I have two questions pertaining to this:
1) Are the manual still relevant and updated considering that the original publication date was in 2016?
2) Why is the download link not available to re-download the NVDA basic training manual or is that just a one time download?

Thank you so much for any and all help concerning this.
