Punctuation/Symbol pronunciation

 

Can anyone explain what the Level setting actually means in this dialog?  The possible values are: none, some, most, all, character.  There also seems to be some sort of tie between this and the complex symbols, which are particularly opaque and don't appear to be regular expressions, though they might be.

As well as how the preservation setting, "only below a symbol's level" interacts with it/them.

The User's Guide does not go into the function of these two options with any depth at all.  If there is other reference material, I'm happy to read that if someone can tell me where it's located.

Re: losing braille

Brian Tew
 

Brian,
Nvda braille works fine most of the time, but from time to time it stops working.
Jaws braille works, but I don't know how well or consistently; I don't use jaws normally.
Even narrator braille can work if I choose a different default driver.
The nvda log has error messages in it, but I don't know what to do with them.
Perhaps somebody who knows what they mean could prescribe a remedy.

Re: Nvda and the International phonetic Alphabet, (IPA)

 

Correction on what I observed about the Punctuation/Symbol pronunciation dialog.   I'm not sure if I had a system burp or what, but when I got out of NVDA and back in again, and opened it, all the characters from symbols.dic and cldr.dic were present.  It's still odd to me that it puts the complex characters from symbols.dic first, then interrupts the list with the contents from cldr.dic, then comes back to the rest of the content of symbols.dic at the end.

I had to hit the END key to throw myself to the very end of a 2000 plus character list and find more of the contents from symbol.dic when in the character list part of that dialog.

Re: Nvda and the International phonetic Alphabet, (IPA)

 

A couple of things here:

        My comment regarding character by character reading, using character names, of the IPA versus phoneme by phoneme reading of characters in the IPA had to do with the ticket Enes Sarıbaş pointed out on github for NVDA.  It appears to me that ticket is requesting phoneme by phoneme reading, possibly at speeds that would make it impossible to know whether what was being read was originally written in its source language or the IPA.   I was contrasting this with what I interpret Teri's desire to be here, reading a word phonetically transcribed in the IPA character by character, using the name or description for that character, not the actual sound it makes.

        As I posted earlier on a different topic that I spun off just to determine how and where speech dictionaries versus character and symbol stuff is kept:  The symbols & punctuation dictionary is a thing of its own and appears to be localized by language, with the main folder being C:\Program Files (x86)\NVDA\locale\ with all the language abbreviations as separate folders beneath.  The English version being, C:\Program Files (x86)\NVDA\locale\en\symbols.dic.   Here is the section just for the common symbols, as a point of reference with regard to the layout.  The individual fields are tab separated:

# Standard punctuation/symbols
! bang all
" quote most
\# number some
$ dollar all norep
£ pound all norep
euro all norep
¢ Cents all norep
.
.
.
~ tilda mo

The first column is the symbol itself, the second is what you want NVDA to say when it encounters it (its replacement), the third is something called level [which I don't quite understand based on the options, I'm guessing "character" is what will be wanted for the IPA characters, maybe "all"], and the last column is whether to pass the actual character itself to the synthesizer (and I'd presume that would be never for the IPA characters).  Given that every common and not so common symbol I can think of is stored in this file, including all the bullet characters, monetary designations, vulgur fractions, etc., it would seem the IPA would get tacked on in this file.

What's weird, at least to me, is that if you open the character/symbol pronunciation dialog a great deal of what's in the symbols.dic file never appears at all in the list for the Punctuation/Symbol pronunciation dialog where you'd manually enter this stuff.  Only the complex punctuation shows, then it skips right along to showing what I'll call the "emoji characters" which are not stored in the symbols.dic file, but in a file called cldr.dic that's stored in the same folder.   There's a third file in that folder, characterDescriptions.dic, that contains two columns, the first being the letter of the alphabet and the second being its callout word, e.g., A Alpha, B Bravo, C Charlie, etc.

ever happening on my XP machine, but uTorrent now stays running in the
background if you don’t close it using the file menu method. So, if you just
hit alt-f4 to close most of your programmes, as I usually do, you might not
be aware that the torrent client is still running and that torrents are
probably still active. It even automatically reloads when you reboot your
system. Literally the only way to properly and really shut it down is by
using the “close” option in the file menu. If a user is unaware of that,
well, then yeah, he might end up with the problem you described there.

Hello,



While I agree with the community sharing aspect of torrent-like software,
one does need to understand how they work and the implications of the
process. Here is one experience I had about ten years ago. I hope that
today's technology helps one manage this situation better.



A friend who was using a torrent service on his then new computer asked me
to help with a severe performance problem on his system. Everything he tried
to do on the PC was taking a very long time. Logging on to the internet was
taking over five minutes. Opening a program was taking 2-3 minutes. Even
simple typing was taking 30-45 seconds for his typed characters to appear on
the screen.



After a lot of checking, we finally discovered that the problem was being
caused by the hytorrent process. He had used it to download lots of movies
and music and did not realize the upload implications of doing so. He did
not understand the upload side of the software. When we dug into it we found
that over 20 other users were actively uploading some of that material from
his PC. These uploads were consuming over 90% of his cpu and his hard disk
was working like mad to service the upload requests. Once we used the
controls available in the upload software to put some bounds and limits on
how much of his system the upload process could consume, his system became
useable again.



As I say, one does need to learn about the software products they are using.
In his case, he spent over a week with a system he could barely use and was
almost at the point of scrapping his PC and buying a new one, which would
not truly have helped him. Learning the software and its capabilities saved
him from a needless purchase and enabled him to continue sharing material
via the torrent approach for several more years.

Torrents are all about colaboration with each other.

Many people after downloading what they want just remove the torrent from
the list of download, which at this point is upload, which is a mistake and
a sense of selfish.

When it comes to torrent, the more people sharing the same one, the better
and faster to download it.

And it won't hurt to let it use one or two KBs of your internet to allow a
faster download for the folks interested in that torrent.

Now imagine if everyone would think this way? It would be wonderful to the
community!



About viruses, well, if you know what and from where you are downloading,
chances you get some sort of virus are less than minimal :)

Subject: Re: [nvda] μTorrent 3.5.4: NVDA does't read the name in the list of
entries.



Actually this program has this little annoyance with NVDA, and I suspect it
does with any screen reader.

As a workaround, when you reach the point where NVDA reports about the
download in question, just press F2.

Yes, that's the command to rename a file, but doing it you'll be able to see
the current name of the download you're focused into and after you're done
with it you can just press esc to exit it without changing the info on the
field.

Hi,
in the lists of entries, like Download or inSeeding etc., apears a column
for the names of each item in list.
NVDA reads from size column to the following columns, but not the name of
the selected entry.

Does anyone know about uTorrent settings more friendly for NVDA?

I'm using NVDA 2018.4.1 and last beta 2019.1BETA1, uTorrent 3.5.4 portable.


Thanks,

Good job on the Ribbon tutorial Robert.  I learnt to handle Ribbons better after going through your short course.  Thanks for your good work.

I added a link to the downloadable version. If anybody else has anything like this, I'd encourage you all to add it to the wiki as a new page or sub-page because, after all, having to share one HTML link is a lot easier, and, it will never be lost. Plus, anybody can make changes to pages as they wish if they see a correction.
