Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

There is no reason not to use Media Player but as is the case with some other Microsoft utilities, you get more settings and options when ripping with some other programs.  I haven't looked into the various options CDEX gives you, but years ago, I used the program and I saw them.  One option was and probably still is, the ability to use more than one Internet CD data base for getting information about the cd when it is named.  Another is jitter, (spelling) something I haven't looked into and don't know anything about.  I think it might be fair to compare the Windows Media Player ripping ability to the Microsoft zip utility.  It does the job and it may well meet the needs of many users.  But for users with more varied needs and who, for some reason, want to control more of what is being done, a more advanced program is likely desired and desirable.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

What is the syntax.  I assume you do this in the run dialog.  Do you space between the name of the file and the /nocandy?  As I recall in DOS, you space before adding this sort of syntax, what is called a switch in DOS.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

mk360
 

For example, the most used EAC, but for some people it can be so complicated because you need to use object navigation to do some things like tagging tracks from cddb, but it is usable (I use it).
An other option to change from one format to an other is audacity.

Hello William,


I'm definitely not an NVDA proficient user, but your last sentence made me think.


Are you using a laptop, by any chance?


If so, you should set your keyboard layout to "Laptop"

(NVDA Menu - Keyboard settings), and then follow the list of commands and keyboard shortcuts for laptops, rather than the one for desktops.

Re: very good news about audio conversion soft ware

That is an exaggeration which may lead to carelessness and unwanted consequences.  As I recall, even the web page of the developer states that unchecky doesn't know about everything.  I also believe I recall seeing comments on that page that people should still be carefull when installing programs to look for things that need to be unchecked or responded to in some way.  There appears to be a widespread misconception that unchecky will protect you against anything.  It can protect you against a lot but it only knows about what is in its data base.  I suspect that this misconception is largely the result of people not reading information on the web page.  I am not talking about the person who sent this message.  I don't know what that person does.  People should routinely read information about programs they intend to use and install.

There is a program called unchecky that will allow you to install any
software without any adds, or any unwanted software getting downloaded with
what you want. Free Make might download and install better if you install
the unchecky software. Just do a Google search for unchecky. Take care.

Re: need a free and accessible file converter which can convert wma or webm files to mp3

Gene
 

Recording programs are inefficient converters.  If you are converting a compressed format to another format, you first have to wait while the file is uncompressed and loaded in the player.  That is wasted time.  File Converters don’t load an entire file before beginning to convert. 
 
Also, using a large and complex recording program to do conversions is overkill.  It's like using Microsoft Word to write a two line note to yourself.

Re: NVDA GENERAL,

yeah, search out bscross32 on skype, that's me, and I wouldn't have any trouble doing a call with you to help you sort things out. And get you set up with NVDA Remote.

I don't see remote just as a, "Well, I'll just pop on here and fix this up for you", kind of tool. I think it's a great teaching tool if you combine it with skype or TeamTalk, and you go slow enough so that the other person can see what you're doing, and you explain where needed.

I have also created a NVDA support group on Skype, there are lots of people ranging from beginner to expert on there, if you want to join, strike enter on this link

https://join.skype.com/I2fAB1Qwm3Gw

What that will do is take you to your browser, sign you into skype, and automatically join you to the group.

AudioScreen add-on is no longer working

Jacob Kruger
 

Not sure exactly when this happened, and therefore can't figure out why, but, while the AudioScreen NVDA add-on is still installed, and was initially working, when I activated it, using NVDA-key + ctrl + A, or changed it's operational mode, using NVDA-key + alt + A, etc., it now does nothing, makes no sounds, doesn't give me any feedback, etc.

Even it's other relevant key combinations don't seem to do anything, and have tried uninstalling it, reinstalling, etc. etc., and doesn't seem to make any difference.

As in, NVDA-key + alt + A does also not reflect any changes, any spoken notification, etc.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

Or should I just try trashing NVDA's installation, and reinstall it from scratch, since under my prior portable copy of NVDA, it does still work as expected, but, since I specifically like the audio ducking feature of an installation of NVDA, I want to stick to actual installation under program files, etc.

TIA

Re: NVDA GENERAL,

Gene
 

If your keyboard contains a numpad, the desktop layout will work if the keyboard can be used in that way.  The purpose of the laptop layout is for use on keyboards without numpads.  If short cut commands don't work on your keyboard using the numpad, your keyboard may not be compatible for thatkind of use.  I have heard of instances where wireless keyboards can't be used in this way.  You can try the laptop layout and see if those commands will work if you wish.  If they don't, you may want to ask here about wireless keyboards people use and know are compatible using whatever keyboard choice you set in NVDA.

Re: how to tell NVDA to read series of number in single digits.

Ejaz Shah
 

The following speech dictionary entry should do this:
Pattern: (\d)(?=\d)
Replacement: \1
Type: Regular Expression

Note that there is a blank space after the 1.

hello.
nvda most times for me the digits completely and sometimes reads single digits.
but i heard that settings this, is a capability of commercial screen readers.
thanks for asking and allah bless you.
please inform me if you found a solution.

Re: NVDA still freezing, don't know what the deal is

The problem with the Linda voice that I was experiencing was that she
basically sounded like she was distorted by being at max volume and too
close to a microphone at the same time, and there was something about
the way she sounded that was hurting my ears. I couldn't bear it! Were
you using headphones? I was.


As for the Braille Table thing, I was particularly annoyed by a few of
the inconsistencies because I got the Braille Display specifically to be
able to read fanfics and other things in Braille, as well as write in my
native writing language, so to speak. I haven't written much with the
display, partly because NVDA does not currently allow one to input
contracted Braille (which makes it less fluid for me to write,
especially when I accidentally do a contraction and have to delete a
number flanked by slashes), and partly because of the issue described in
this thread, though I haven't tried typing with the display when it's
connected for a long period. I wish I could type in Grade 2. Jaws users
can. :(

nvda_snapshot_brltbl_20160315 is the name of the file in the list, if
that's what you mean. I got it back in March and although the
experimental UEB tables added to it weren't perfect (Joseph told me it
was no trivial matter to fix the minor problems I brought up when I was
first testing it) it's better than the current one, which lacks "ea",
"cc" and "ff" contractions, as well as only showing format terminators
and emdashes (among other symbols) being replaced with eight cells of
weird code that disrupt the flow of reading.

That should graduate to master soon, if people don't find problems
with it.

For the braille table, what snapshot are you using now? You'll probably
need to merge it when 2016.2 comes out.

And the Master snapshot doesn't have the braille table I'd prefer to
use, which is why I got that other snapshot when I did. The newer more
experimental table fixed the problem of emdashes being replaced by
eight
cells of nonsense that took up more space than necessary, and
formatting
representations, and missed contractions...


I can't use this.

snapshots I've used have been stable. That doesn't mean that they
all
are. They are versions still in development and not beta tested.

Hi,


The reason the driver was still trying to do something was that I had
used the old snapshot I had in conjunction with my display to read
for a
bit, then had disconnected the display without resetting the
"display"
setting in Braille Settings to "No Braille". As I said, it lasted
longer, but still locked up at the most inconvenient time...


Can I have a link to this master snapshot? And is this building
toward
the next release or are some things not ready for that yet? If the
former, when is the next release? Is it some time this month, or
next?

Hey, before you have to format the computer. Why not run chkdsk and
then go
into the bios and see what can be the problem. I'd use format as
the
last
resort. Or if you just want to do it and get it over with. then go
ahead and
do one. Good luck!

It just happened AGAIN. This time, with no Braille Display
plugged in,
but still in Word. My sister described what she saw as "It's
circling
and the screen is foggy," so I'm assuming it was hanging. It took
longer
than normal to shut down, and longer than normal to start up
properly,
and apparently Windows Explorer lagged for a few seconds. I
don't know
how to recover my writing (I tried one of the previous times this
happened by restoring the auto recovery file from the Recycle bin
but it
didn't work...).


Anyways, here's the log. I hope this time I can get an answer
for why
this is happening. I'm getting seriously concerned at this point.

It's on nvdaremote.com. If you can't find it there, please go to the top
of the page and tell me what you hear, the first few lines or so.

Hello William,


No idea. I generally use a desktop and, when I use my netbook, I use the built-in keyboard - no external keyboards of sorts.


I wouldn't think a bluetooth keyboard should a problem though.


What do you mean when you say that no shortcuts seem to work? Could you provide some examples?

Ciao,

Ollie

Hello William,


I'm definitely not an NVDA proficient user, but your last sentence made me think.


Are you using a laptop, by any chance?


If so, you should set your keyboard layout to "Laptop"

(NVDA Menu - Keyboard settings), and then follow the list of commands and keyboard shortcuts for laptops, rather than the one for desktops.

Hi All,
I am new to this group and must apologise at the outset for my ignorance if I am not following tghe correct Protocol.
I am partially sight impaired and the deteriation seems to be more rapid at he moment which has resulted in my looking for
a program which will assist me to operate my computer.
I recently installed NVDA and it seem to just what I need.
However, I seem to have difficulty in mastering even the basics and am wondering if I can get some assistance. (Skype???)
Very few of the shortcut keys seem to work for me.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Re: how to tell NVDA to read series of number in single digits.

Chris Mullins
 

This works fine on ordinary numbers but ruins the speaking of currency amounts, so there is a trade off.

Cheers

The following speech dictionary entry should do this:
Pattern: (\d)(?=\d)
Replacement: \1
Type: Regular Expression

Note that there is a blank space after the 1.

Re: Putting Basic Training for NVDA manual on to DAISY player

Albert Ruel
 

If the E-PUB file for the NVDA tutorial was placed in the text folder perhaps the VR Stream will be able to read it.

Thx, Albert

Hello list

I paid for and downloaded Basic Training for NVDA.Zip file and have been working through it.It recommends that the epub file should be put on to a DAISY book player so that one can listen to it and work through the activities on your PC. Unfortunately, I have been unable to do this with my second generation VR stream. When I unzip the file and arrow down to the epub file, it states that this is encrypted. Is this why it does not register on the VR stream’s $VR dtb folder when I try to paste it in with either JAWS or NVDA? I have not dealt with encrypted files before and would appreciate some advice/help.

kind regards

Lindy

I always plug external USB keyboards into my laptops - 99% of the time anyway.

Thus, always keep screen readers set to desktop mode.

Stay well
