Hi William,
Thanks a ton for that information. I am not only going to subscribe to

been briefly mentioned on the Audacity for blind users Wiki page at

Thanks.

Hi Gene,
Your audio tutorial was really helpful, and even more than I am
grateful for the amount of information you provided, I am thankful for
your systematic and structural way of presenting it all.
I have been a little busy in the last day or so, so I haven't listened
to the MP3 Direct Cut demonstration, but will do that soon enough as
well.
Would folks still recommend that I issue the cursor and marker
insertion key presses half a second or so before the point I intend it
to be placed, or is that no longer the case, at least it probably
wouldn't on a Windows 8.1 (to be Windows 10) 8 gb RAM I5 processor

messy, as there were extra bits not being eradicated in my hurry to
press the marker keystrokes a short while before.

If the sound recorder program in Windows 10 is like the one in Windows
7, it's almost worthless. In the Windows 7 program, you can't edit
and it records in the MP3 format as I recall. I know you can't choose
formats and I know it’s a lossy format. Whether ogg or MP3, its so
limited that it's more like a toy.
I don't recall if it even has a pause button and if it resumes
recording or overwrites the file if you stop and start it. What
program did you used to use? If you used the old XP sound recorder,
that may still work in Windows 10. I got it to work in Windows 7. I
can suggest programs to use to create a podcast file and edit it. For
example, you might use a program I have to record the podcast file and
then edit with Mp3 Direct Cut. Both programs will produce MP3 files
but, for reasons I won't go into now, it's better to use one program I

Hello once more,

Thank you for your responses, for I enjoyed reading them a lot!

Further specs: My Web browser is the latest version of Firefox (even
though a sighted friend told me that Google Chrome was better), my
default media player is Windows Media Player 12 (not The Groove Music
from Windows 10), and Gmail is the only e-mail source I use. Since
Windows 10 doesn't come with the Sound Recorder program like how
previous versions of Windows does, I'm missing it a lot because I use
it for Podcasting and other projects. Can any Windows 10 user
recommend any sound-recording program that would work well with it +
NVDA? I'd appreciate your feedback so much.

Just FYI: I have no usable vision in both eyes to read large print so
I'm totally dependent on NVDA to do all my reading out loud for me.

Take care, and have a good day.

sincerely,

Jolene.

Also, and I don't know the commands for this, newer versions of Audacity that came out after I did my tutorial finally implemented commands to hear where the markers are set. If the commands are implemented well, that would be very useful in knowing just where the markers are.  But I haven't tried them.  I seldom use Audacity these days.

Confirmed! If you do report bugs to Apple. They are good about fixing it! I
had a friend who does conference calls using her I Phone and there's a bug
in voiceover in the latest update. She did call apple and they are awhere of
the bug. My friend can't make 3 way calls using the I Phone because of the
bug.

Then don't makes assumptions. I'm not saying you are. I'm simply kindly
asking please that you don't. As yes, until this latest update which broke
a lot of things, it was quite better than back in 2011. I think you would
have been quite impressed prior to 12.4. And just as a heads up, I've made
Apple aware of the issues in Windows, and trust me. It's not just NVDA
having the issue. It seems to be across the board on the Windows side of
things. They told me that I wasn't the first to report things, they were
definitely aware of the issues, and were working their butts off to push us
out an update that'll fix those issues.

Hi Gene,
Okay, will experiment more, but am inclined to dismiss the perception
of a potential delay in marker insertion with my existing limited
experience.
That would be great if marker positions can be determined out of the
box from Audacity itself, and I am certainly going to join the
Audacity for Blind Users maling list and hope to learn further from
there too.
Thanks.

Further specs: My Web browser is the latest version of Firefox (even
though a sighted friend told me that Google Chrome was better), my
default media player is Windows Media Player 12 (not The Groove Music
from Windows 10), and Gmail is the only e-mail source I use. Since
Windows 10 doesn't come with the Sound Recorder program like how
previous versions of Windows does, I'm missing it a lot because I use
it for Podcasting and other projects. Can any Windows 10 user
recommend any sound-recording program that would work well with it +
NVDA? I'd appreciate your feedback so much.

Just FYI: I have no usable vision in both eyes to read large print so
I'm totally dependent on NVDA to do all my reading out loud for me.

Take care, and have a good day.

sincerely,

Jolene.

nvda scripting

Richard Kuzma
 

Can someone turn me on to some info on nvda scripting.

I would like to create a simple script that just passes keystrokes to it.

Like tab and some ctrl key combinations.

I have created the script in jaws, but would like to learn to do the same in nvda as the person I am helping does not have jaws.

Thanks so much

Rich

Hi


Before I went on holidays I started to put together a page on Windows 10 on the stuff that most people would change etc. This page can be found at http://www.accessibilitycentral.net/nvda%20tutorials%20for%20windows%2010.html

Jump down to a section called How to Configure File Explorer (previously known as Windows Explorer) to Open With This PC


I have done this to all of my machines


hope this helps.

Once you have set autoread  going, you can use  the shift key like a pause button.  Press it to stop the speech, press it again to resume speech  from where you left off.

Hi


I just done a quick tutorial on how to do it, I will tidy it up later on tonight and upload it to the nvda tutorials for windows 10 page for any one else who wants to do it.


Bad draft below.


Customizing your Desktop

 

If you have been so used to having a my Pc icon, recycle bin, control panel   ectra  some of the shortcuts can be replaced

 Back on the desktop and have noticed it is not there and wanted it back on the desktop, this can easily be done.

Press the Windows key + the letter I. This will bring up the Windows settings section in Windows. You will be given some options. Locate the Personalization icon then press the enter key. Arrow to you hear NVDA say Themes then press the enter key. Next tab until you hear NVDA say Desktop icon settings then press the enter key. You will now be given some options. For example computer, User's Files, Network, Recycle Bin, Control Panel. If there are shortcuts you want back on the desktop from this section, press the space bar on the ones you want. This will check the check box, so they can be added. After you have made your selection, tab to the apply button, then press the enter key, tab again until you hear NVDA say ok button, then press the enter key. Now these shortcuts/icons will now be on your desktop.

Saving NVDA Configuration Settings

Jolene Cardenas
 

Hello everyone,

For those of you who use NVDA with Windows 10, I have a question to ask you:
Why do you think NVDA won't allow me to save my new configuration
settings whenever I change them and then attempt to save them?

I'm asking because I'd get an error message from NVDA that would read,
"Could not save configuration, probably because read-only file
system."

I never had this problem when I was using Windows 7, yet I run in to
it all the time now in Windows 10.

I thank you in advance for your feedback, and have a good day.

sincerely,

Jolene.

Re: Saving NVDA Configuration Settings

 

Jolene,

          I don't have any definitive answer, but suggest you either uninstall then reinstall NVDA 2016.1 or else do an "install over" install of NVDA 2016.1 again.

          This sounds like one of those weird, "something didn't go right" with the install NVDA itself, much like I've seen on occasion with JAWS, and typically reinstalling makes the problem go away.

Brian

Re: Saving NVDA Configuration Settings

Kenny Dog <hurrikennyandopo@...>
 

Hi Jolene.


I am using windows 10 on all of my machines and donot have this problem when saving a configuration. Out of curosity what synth package are you using? It may be a buggy add on doing it if that is the case you might be able to disable them and see if you can save your configuration after that..Is there a dialogue box still open when you go to save your settings? I am aware there is a buggy synth add on that will do that.

If so does it still do it if you say change to the E speak syth package?


At the worst it may be a good idea to reset nvda back to factory defaults and this will usually fix the problem. Some times if that does not do it then a complete uninstall of nvda plus the section under %appdata% and the nvda folder taken out will usually do the trick, but I don't think you would have to go that far.
