Re: does NVDA work with netbook laptops?

Luke Davis
 

If it is Windows 10, I can't see why it wouldn't work.

As an aside, I have little experience with recent netbooks, but there are things like the HP Stream series of light laptops still floating around. The very moderate savings you will get from buying one of these instead of a more normal laptop, will be vastly offset by the never ending headaches you will have from having only a 32GB or 64GB SSD. Having those microscopic hard drives, which a netbook might since you don't give any further information, makes it very difficult for Windows to update itself, aside from the fact that you will be constantly running out of general storage space.
Yes there are ways around this using SD cards and USB sticks, but if your netbook has one of these tiny drives, please reconsider whether you should acquire it. The fact that these things were ever manufactured is a travesty.

Of course, if it's a netbook with a more reasonably sized drive, ignore everything I just said.:)

Re: Weather_Plus 6.2 available

Quentin Christensen
 

Thanks Joseph,

Like I said, I probably missed it earlier :) I don't tend to use add-ons too often since I'm always wanting to have a "plain" NVDA setup to test things with.

Hi,

I and the add-ons community members removed the download link from the website after receiving many complaints about WeatherPlus 5.0 caused by web API problem. Once I get an official request to add it back in, I’ll take care of that (won’t be until Tuesday at the earliest).

Cheers,

Hi Rémy,

 

I probably wasn't paying attention, but is there a reason the Weather Plus add-on is no longer available from: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/Weather_Plus.en.html

 

I only noticed as a user asked me about it.

Put the log in debug mode to see the general option in NVDA, press the NVDA+F1 key, save this file and give it a name.log and then send the log to Adriano, you have his mail in the readme.html, or via the addon page. Thanks for your comments always useful.

Hi to every one,


Note for those who were using versions 5 of Weather_Plus (Apixu API)::

The list of cities you have is not compatible with this new version, don't worry, Weather_Plus will allow you to retrieve them via the settings window.

Changes in this version:

??? Weather Plus returns to using the Yahoo Weather API.
??? Virtually all the features of the previous version 4.8 are back and keeps the "Rename" button.

??? Now compatible also with Python 3.

??? NVDA compatibility: 2017.3 to 2019.1

Weather_Plus can update itself, however you can download it from the following page:

http://www.nvda.it/files/plugin/weather_plus6.0.nvda-addon

Thanks in advance Noelia, Remy, Abdel, and Svonimir for yoursgreat commitment to include Weather_Plus in the automatic translation system and restoring the download link on the international page.


Best regards

Adriano Barbieri

Adriano: I downloaded and copied in the file. The next time I started NVDA, it asked to update Weather Plus. Once that was done it allowed me to set a city. Thank you for all your hard work and please forgive me for sounding ungrateful to you. Providing trouble-shooting information feedback was no place to express my personal frustration with the add-on not working for me.

Other things:

HiDoug Lee and all,
Thanks very much for your excellent explanation.
I do not use linux, I use Windows, but because the repository where Weather_Plus is located does not use the Windows convention for CRLF?
The Notepadplusplus is used for the elaboration of the readme.md files and they are encoded in UTF-8, I think that this is also used for the elaboration of the source files, if I am not mistaken all the word processor use the CRLF convention if you have Windows?
I think Zvonimir  should use this convension and not the LF convension  used by Linux seems more logical to me.
What you think?
How to avoid this in the future I do not know?
Thank you for this passionate debate.
Cheers.

[nvda-addons] Important note for Weather_Plus6.0 translators

English first:

Linux and Windows create text files differently: In Linux, lines end with a line-feed character, or LF. In Windows, lines end with two characters: A carriage return, or CR, followed by a line feed, LF. We commonly abbreviate these as LF and CRLF, respectively.

Zvonimir was saying that the project uses the LF convention but your files use the CRLF convention. The result is that comparing original files with your files will make it seem like you changed every line in the files. This, of course, is an accident; but it makes detecting actual code changes more difficult.

My best, with Google's help, at Spanish for the above:

Anglais en premier:

Linux et Windows créent des fichiers texte différemment: Sous Linux, les lignes se terminent par un caractère de saut de ligne, ou LF. Sous Windows, les lignes se terminent par deux caractères: un retour à la ligne, ou CR, suivi d’un saut de ligne, LF. Nous les abrégons couramment en LF et CRLF, respectivement.

Zvonimir disait que le projet utilise la convention LF mais que vos fichiers utilisent la convention CRLF. Le résultat est que la comparaison des fichiers originaux avec vos fichiers donne l'impression que vous avez changé chaque ligne des fichiers. Ceci, bien sûr, est un accident; mais cela rend plus difficile la détection des modifications de code réelles.

Mon meilleur, avec l'aide de Google, en espagnol pour ce qui précède:

Re: help with automatic language switching

Yes indeed I am using the Vocalizer Expressive from Tiflotecnia. I am using
the latest version. Thanks for telling me about the Braille extender. I
installed it and although it does not do automatic language switching, the
short among various tables is helpful. However, I seem to be getting some
errors when I use it. I hope a newer release would solve these errors.

I am currently using the latest version of NVDA and I use the Braille

of Vocalizer Expressive to have access to multi-lingual support.  On
my PC I have the English, Arabic, and Hebrew voices.  The automatic

realized that I can only see English on my Braille display, and when I
encounter an Arabic or Hebrew word or phrase it displays gibberish on
my Braille Sense.

Is there a way of setting my NVDA Braille settings so that it would
switch among the three languages automatically?  I know that I can
switch among the Braille tables manually, but at times I have more
than one language in the same document or even the same sentence.  Is
this an NVDA issue or a vocalizer issue?  Is this the right forum to
figure out if there is a solution to this problem?

I truly appreciate your help in this matter.

Hi Gerardo,

Can you please download this version 6.1, is the last version available;

http://www.nvda.it/files/plugin/weather_plus6.1.nvda-addon

 

I add only for those who still have problems, as already suggested by someone to go it:
1. press left windows key+r.
2. paste the line:
%appdata%\nvda\
3. delete the file weather.ini.
4. Press nvda+ctrl+f3 and reconfigure the add-on normally.http://www.nvda.it/files/plugin/weather_plus6.1.nvda-addon
Thanks.
Rémy

Greetings,

So, I have uninstalled and installed Nvda and than Weather plus.

But I can't set my town.

Where is a problem, please?

Could you help me?

Hi to every one,


Note for those who were using versions 5 of Weather_Plus (Apixu API)::

The list of cities you have is not compatible with this new version, don't worry, Weather_Plus will allow you to retrieve them via the settings window.

Changes in this version:

??? Weather Plus returns to using the Yahoo Weather API.
??? Virtually all the features of the previous version 4.8 are back and keeps the "Rename" button.

??? Now compatible also with Python 3.

??? NVDA compatibility: 2017.3 to 2019.1

Weather_Plus can update itself, however you can download it from the following page:

http://www.nvda.it/files/plugin/weather_plus6.0.nvda-addon

Thanks in advance Noelia, Remy, Abdel, and Svonimir for yoursgreat commitment to include Weather_Plus in the automatic translation system and restoring the download link on the international page.


Best regards

Adriano Barbieri

call for topics letter for NVDA CONFERENCE 2019

Austin Pinto <austinpinto.xaviers@...>
 

Hello,

This year, the NVDACon International planning committee would like to
invite you to submit session topics for the upcoming NVDA community
conference (NVDACon). The conference will be held in August of 2019.

NVDA – non visual desktop access, is the software which changes
thousands of lives of visually impaired and blind people worldwide. As
every open source project, NVDA is backed by a fantastic community.
The NVDA community is unique by the fact that visually impaired and
non visually impaired people work together to improve accessibility on
Windows and to boost efficiency when working with third party
applications. NVDA is not only a software, it is a social movement
which is already spread all over the world.
The event which underpins the social interaction between users,
developers, institutions and stake holders is the NVDA community
converence (NVDACon). Every year, the stake holders in this community
are meeting on this online conference and discuss or present
interesting topics related to accessibility and the NVDA screen
reader.

If you represent a company, organization or you are an individual
person who is passionate about accessibility related topics, or if you
are interested to take part or even to present something on the
conference, please submit your topic to
info@nvdacon.org by June 30th, 2019.

There are two presentation types available for NVDACon:
1. Lightning talk: is a fifteen to thirty minutes talk, with
limited time available for questions and answers. In one session there
will be two or three lightning talks.
2. Full length session: this is usually a presentation for sixty or
ninety minutes. Full sessions are great for a more in debth topic
which is covered in more detail.

We are looking forward to your topic proposals.

Sincerely,

Austin Pinto.
member of NVDA con planning and promotion committee.


Re: wanted free voices

thanks for your voices.

Hi


If you installed all of the voices and only wanted to keep the english ones
the other voices can be uninstalled from program and features i think it is
called in the control panel. You will need to go down the list and uninstall
the voices you do not want.


If you want the english ones only you will need to note which ones they
are.


Under the voice settings menu to get there press the ctrl key + nvda key +
the letter V it should tell you what synth package you are using there. Tab
down to change and change to speech platform.


When you have changed it then after that you can tab to voices then arrow
down or up the list to see which ones they are.


I do not play with the languages as i only speak english and only use
english voices.


I think also there is a add on called switch synth you can get from the add
on web page that some use but not me.

Hi


the link to the drop box where you can get the speech platform synth and
voices is
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0rokrf6a4qijsvf/Speech%20Platform%2011%20engine%20and%20voices.zip?dl=0

The speech hub package is only in english all of the synth and voices. You
will need to install the add on as well for nvda to see the package after
the main file has been installed.


the add on can be found under c: drive then program files x86 then speech
hub then i think it is the add on it is the top folder called add on. it
will need to be installed the usual way for nvda to see the package.


The link to this one from drop box is
https://www.dropbox.com/s/28lcflys6ebbmtk/SpeechHubInstall.exe?dl=0


I think the following website if i remember right you can get free TTS
voices as well. if i remember right you do not have to buy the package as
the synths and voices which are free can be installed. I thin there are
commercial ones but you have to buy them. I thought i had lost this link a
long time ago.

Hi v


Not sure if any of the voices in the speech platform package will suit your
needs. there are voices for both english and other languages that i do not
speak


I can drop box them for you they are about 340 meg with all voices and the
speech platform runtime engine.


You will need a program like 7 zip or one that can unzip the files for you
first. When done look for the speech platform runtime engine and install it
first. It is the only file that does not have the name of the file with TTS
in in standing for text to speech and the name of the voice and language.


You can get it from my drop box account at
https://www.dropbox.com/s/0rokrf6a4qijsvf/Speech%20Platform%2011%20engine%20and%20voices.zip?dl=0


The speech hub package also has other synths and voices but in a package
and
can be gotten off the following website at http://www.speakon.org.uk/

When you download the speech hub package you will also need to install the
add on so nvda can see the synths and voices. So the main package will get
installed then under your c: drive program files x86 then speech hub then
the folder for the add on it will need to be installed into nvda. Then
later
on you can change to those other synth and voices.


There may be other software there that you may like to try.

I had a similar issue several years ago when I upgraded from Windows 7 to 10. I finally called the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk, and the agent to whom I spoke installed a new sound driver for me. You might give that a try. Good luck.

Re: Copying an Entire Column of Data from a Table Inserted Into a Web Page?

Kenny <kwashingtonbox@...>
 

Tried several things to highlight/copy column information found in a web page table with no luck.


"copytables. ?" I'll take a look at that Chrome plug-in. Thanks.

Say I land on a column that has 25 rows of information I want to copy to the clipboard. Is there a keyboard shortcut to tell NVDA to highlight and entire column or row? Then I could simply hit [Ctrl+c] to copy the highlighted data to the clipboard.
No.  This is more a windows thing than an NVDA thing.  You may be able to highlight the whole table, by selecting from the top to the bottom, but I don't know that will work in all situations, especially if the table is unusual (A CSS table, for example).

You can select each individual cell, and copy that to the clipboard; but that will be very tedius.

The only NVDAish thing I can think of, is using the speech viewer--Navigate the column you want to copy, then copy and paste out of the speech viewer.  That will be messy, but it will work.

Other solutions depend on your browser.  If you are using Chrome, there are several plugins for this, including copytables.

If you are using Firefox, you are supposed to be able to hold down control and select each cell in a row or column that you want, then copy with control-c. Unfortunately, this doesn't work with NVDA, because NVDA is using control to let you navigate those cells.  I suppose you could do it by playing with focus and simulating mouse movements, etc., but that seems like rather a lot of work.

Basically, we would need an addon to do this well in NVDA, and even then it might be browser specific.

Also other then the above shortcut keys for navigating a Table by column or row, are there any others? Ones for navigating/manipulating table data inserted in a web page that is?
Look at the Easy Table Navigator addon.  It provides "alternative" commands to the defaults, involving fewer keys.  Who knows, you may even be able to get the firefox thing to work using that.
