Re: strange message

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi Stew,

Without the actual message itself, it's not much to go on to try to help you. :)

When you say "switching to NVDA", do you mean, from another screen reader, or by waking it up after you've had NVDA in sleep mode, or bringing up an NVDA settings dialog... or something else I haven't guessed?

If you can get that exact message you are receiving, that would quite possibly help.  NVDA has a speech viewer.  It only works while NVDA is running, so based on what you've said, I'm not sure if you'll be able to get to it or not, but just in case: Press NVDA+n to bring up the NVDA menu, then T for tools, then down arrow once to speech viewer and press ENTER.  The speech viewer window opens and takes focus - so you might need to alt+tab back to wherever you were.  Anything NVDA speaks now should appear in the speech viewer. You can alt+tab back to the speech viewer window to read or copy what has been said.

Alternatively, you can set NVDA's log to Input/Output or Debug, which will capture the speech and other detail in the log.  Press NVDA+control+g to open NVDA's general settings.  TAB to "Logging level" and use the down arrow to increase the logging level, then press ENTER when done.  The log is saved to the %temp% folder as nvda.log.  If you need to restart NVDA to overcome the problem you are having, that's fine, the previous log is also kept as nvda-old.log.

If keeping a log at a high level like debug, it does save everything including keystrokes, so don't log in to your internet banking then post the log to the email list :)

Otherwise, what program are you in when you get this message - and did you say restarting NVDA helps?  If so, instead of restarting, if you press ALT twice, or alt+tab to another program and back, does that help?

Regards

Quentin.

This is, truly, one of the most foolish things I have ever seen posted on this forum.  It shows a breathtaking lack of consideration of how that would make it well-nigh impossible to find add-ons, and it's plenty difficult already.

A central repository, a truly central repository, is long, long overdue.   Users understand categories, and the vetting process would remain entirely unchanged.

I agree with Adrianis justification. If concerns are justified,  in case nobody does this before, I will remove this add-on for now from the stable section of the website. As a minimum, I think that stable add-ons shouldnt cause issues for NVDA or Windows, and if maintainers cannot fix them in a period of time, add-ons must be removed at least from the stable section. And of course, if addons are harmful, at least potentially, like announced for BlindExtra, they must be deleted from development section too. Addons are shared in websites, repos, Dropbox, etc., and the website accessible from add-ons manager should be distinguished by the review process, including security and certain requirements regarding user experience. At least for me it is painful the deletion of add-ons, but it is a duty for reviewers and we have the possibility of ignoring these rules, but in this case I think that the whole addons website should be abandoned, leting people to search addons in lots of webpages or wherever they want, without spending our time on this. Just to confirm my agreement with Adriani. Cheers.

Hello all,

 

to clarify abit my request, with incompatible addons I meant the addons where no maintenance is given, where we lost contact to the author etc. Those addons should in my opinion go offline for a period until a maintainer is found.

 

For developers, the old versions of every addon can be found most often on github anyway. For the users, it is important that people do not run into issues and do not get the impression that NVDA is getting worse. We want to avoid huge workloads which could arise if people report unrelated issues on github, driving long discussions in which at the end it comes out the issue was caused by an old addon.

 

The justification for my request is as follows:

And by the way, the community review contains also compatibility checks. If this is not given, the new addon is not being posted. So is it not unfair to have an old and abandoned addon on the website while other engaged authors create new addons and apply for a review but they do not get posted? In my view, the addons website should guarantee security and compatibility for users. Otherwise we can drop all our review rules and processes and can post anything on the website.

 

But note that this official addons website is also the face of the NVDA community when it comes to corporate environments. We must make sure that people are able to bring arguments when security questions are raised. How should users bring reliable arguments when incompatible addons and most important, addons which cause significant bugs, can be downloaded from the official website?

 

So the question is, what should be the purpose of an official addon website? If you expect the addons website to be an archive for all kinds of old and incompatible addons along with new addons, then we do not need to spend time and ressources on reviewing addons at all. But I hope the community will not choose this way.

Betreff: Audio theme 3d - request of removal from the official website due to missing maintenance

 

Dear all,

 

with this message I request the community to remove the audiotheme 3d from the website and from the translations system because it seems we cannot find someone who maintain it. This addon causes problems in NVDA 2019.2 (i.e. NVDA does not announce elements on desktop after closing applications). It will also cause problems if the compatibility is not being updated.

 

To avoid invalid issues in NVDA’s repository on github, I further suggest to remove all incompatible addons from the website once NVDA 2019.3 comes out. Otherwise people, especially beginners, will download incompatible addons and will run into issues.

 

The authors are very welcome to request a re-integration of their addons on the website as soon as the compatibility flags are updated.

 

Thanks for your understanding.

 

Best regards

Adriani

 

Re: NVDA pronouncing cups as Cuban Pesos

 

I posted about this all the way back in 2017.   I could consistently get this to occur in any MS-Word file where I was writing a recipe where a line was "1 cup flour," for example.

I used the default dictionary and simply used "cup" (with lower case C) as the match string and "Cup" (with a capital C) as the replacement string and it always said cup when I expected it to.  This tweak was also synth agnostic, even though the actual behavior was not.

That's exactly what it should be, in my opinion.

There is a section for vetted add-ons still under active development, a section for previously vetted add-ons not currently under development that one uses at one's own risk, and a section for community developed add-ons, not necessarily vetted at all, that are used at your own risk.

Good heavens, this sort of architecture for extensions and add ons of all kinds exist on the internet.   Any user should understand the differences between those three categories and not use any of the second two if they are risk averse.   NVAccess is not in any way responsible for add-ons in any category other than vetted and under active support.

It's only "the official and active" section that the organization bears any responsibility for.   All else is for the convenience of users of old releases with which previously vetted add-ons are compatible or who wish to use unvetted add-ons, and it's a cryin' shame that a great many that have been developed by individuals for their own use do not have a "NVDA Home" where they can be uploaded and downloaded by those who might wish to do so.

End users are not children, and do not need the kind of paternalism that protects them from risks that they should understand, and need to if they don't.   The same thing applies to browser extensions, phone and computer apps, and the like.   Learning how to "consider the source" is part of being an educated computer user.

I also think the risk via NVDA add-ons, developed privately by other NVDA users, other than perhaps breaking something that can be unbroken by removing the add-on, is incredibly low.

Re: CodeFactory eloquence&vocalizer addon and sapi5 eloquence

If it can be done, ESpeak has nothing to do with the subject.  You are comparing two completely different synthesizers.  Also, does SAPI impose a speed penalty for some reason when compared with an add-on?  Have you compared SAPI E-speak with the E-speak in NVDA itself?

Hi,

 

In comparing the CodeFactory sapi5 eloquence, and eloquence CodeFactory addon, comparing them to jaws with eloquence, sapi5 espeak, and the illegal eloquence, I noticed sapi5 espeak is more responsive and illegal eloquence is more responsive when arrowing through words letter by letter and is more responsive in general. Also espeak has better responsiveness than CodeFactory eloquence. So could CodeFactory please update their sapi5 eloquence and their NVDA addon and make it more responsive like espeak? I know it can be done, because both jaws with eloquence and illegal eloquence are more responsive than the CodeFactory addon that I purchased. Why can’t it be the other way around? Illegal eloquence is unresponsive and buggy while CodeFactory eloquence is responsive and fast? Why can’t CodeFactory please take the responsiveness code from espeak or I’ll just call it bad illegal eloquence and incorporate it into its own products? I like owning a legal copy of eloquence. But I do not like the fact that the bad illegal eloquence is more responsive than codeFactory’s version.

If I recall correctly, gmail exposes virtual IMAP folders. So everything in your inbox acts as if it is replicated in the allmail folder. And a few other cases of that sort of thing. I wonder if Thunderbird is seeing those as separate folders, and trying to process them as such? That is a wild shot in the dark, as I have never used Thunderbird, and all my gmail IMAP access is via mail programs that behave well with it.

General sluggishness with Thunderbird. I have a feeling, though,
that this is a Thunderbird issue and nothing to do with NVDA.
Try disabling Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Enable Global Search and
Indexer. Note that this isn't accessibility or screen reader specific,
but I personally found that global search didn't help me and was a
performance killer.

The problem, Gene, in this case is that both LaTex (the document layout language) and Linux were both mentioned in the post being alluded to.  Your point, however, is valid overall.

But, as this topic long ago jumped the rails of being NVDA related in any way I'm locking it as soon as I post this.   I tried to get it to close by request, and that has not worked.

It isn't Linux.  If something doesn't make sense, check spelling if a word my be misunderstood due to speech.  Based on the past discussion, the operating system doesn't matter. this is primarily visual work, laying out a document visually.  What is said is that the closest you can get is to learn Latex.  I don't know what it is, I haven't checked but it has nothing to do with an operating system. 
 
I'm going into this because it is far too common for people not to check spelling when something doesn't make sense or is questionable and to assume that they are hearing speech correctly and that the synthesizer is not mis pronouncing something..

Re: Audio theme 3d - request of removal from the official website due to missing maintenance

 

Adriani,

           If you all don't have the power, and with ease, to simply toss in the circular file anything that comes in in regard to an unsupported add-on, or to limit what can be created via trouble ticket in the first place, then that is what desperately needs to be created.

           Once something goes out of support you are, very simply, not responsible for it.  Your system for entering trouble tickets should not even allow one to be created on anything that is not part of the officially supported NVDA world.

            That is, in actuality, how most software development projects handle things as stuff goes out of support, while leaving archival copies out there for download for those who want or need them.

             It is perfectly OK to say, "We don't support that," and drop a matter and to prevent any issues from being created except for items under support (and generally in a dropdown list as part of trouble ticket creation - I haven't done one for NVDA in quite a while).

Re: Audio theme 3d - request of removal from the official website due to missing maintenance

However, the older releases of addons could cause unexpected bugs and people will be enclined to report them on github as it was an NVDA bug which in turn causes a huge workload for people who triage issues.

If there is a dedicated cathegory for incompatible addons, then the problems which impact user experience directly must be documented. And this is the biggest deal here because someone must be aware of all bugs caused by the older version of the addons. To be honnest, this is almost impossible. Because this would mean that they must be tested with every new NVDA release to make sure that all possible bugs are documented correctly. I think there is no one who is willing to test those addons just for bug documentation.

And I disagree, but only in the details.

It is perfectly possible to make the add-ons site structured such that only add-ons that work with whatever "the current version" of NVDA are on that page, compatible with NVDA 2019.1 and older [and the distinction is irrelevant, you could just say older releases, then place the detail about which older release in the add-on page].

There are plenty of people who use older versions of NVDA either by choice or by force and for whom the current maintenance status of a given add-on matters not one whit.

We should not be taking away these resources from those who can still use them, but we should catalog them in a way that those seeking them out know what will work under what versions of NVDA as things do drop out of active maintenance.

Archival software can often be a boon, and not just for NVDA users.
