Is there a quick key to tell me what colour the text is on a website, as I land on a character? I know about the 'announce colour' option in settings, but I just want to discover the colour occasionally and not have the colour of every heading, link and text read out as I go through a website.

Re: Accessibility issues with latest potplayer, warn user not to upgrade to latest version

 

hello.
and thanks for suggestions of everyone that helped us to make pot
player accessible again.
the last version of pot player is 200204.
today i downloaded and installed it on my windows xp.
both bringing preferences by f5 and using context menu with
application key are accessible.
God bless you all!

Hi,

One of my computer updated potplayer to 1.7.21126

and came across the following issues with nvda.


1. pressing application key / right click with mouse cannot access the
context menu


2. pressing f5 cannot access the preferences


3. the installer of the latest version added a adware, and if it is on
that step, pressing tab with nvda cannot access the buttons.


I found it very frustrated, cause my work require potplayer's function.


Anyone would know any media player has a function to press hotkey and
copy the current play position to clipboard?


Thanks,

William

Re: a question about vocalizer

Rui Fontes
 

Hello!


If you are using Tiflotecnia's Vocalizer Expressive voices, the pitch increase for capital letters work as advertised.


If you are using our Vocalizer voices version 2.0, based on Vocalizer Automotive, there are no possibility of pitch changing, so it is necessary to use the bips or say caps options to anounce capital letters.


If you are using Vocalizer voices from CodeFactory, check if you have not checked the option to be the driver to control the pitch...


Best regards,

Rui Fontes

Tiflotecnia, Lda.

Thanks for this info.

After the fix, my potplayer is now able to access the context menu.


I think the problem is not exclusive to Win 10, because my win 7 is having this issue as well.

Re: web pages not refreshing

Quentin Christensen
 

Sorry folks, I haven't been ignoring those who have reported this to me directly.  We've had a few reports of this, and I can recreate it myself.  I hadn't yet created an issue, I was trying to investigate exactly what was going on with it.  In the meantime, someone else has created https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/10801 which seems as good a place as any to record any more info on this issue (feel free to comment on that issue if you can add any technical info, a log, etc).

Re: Remote

Quentin Christensen
 

I can't answer the original question, but I definitely echo Brian's question - if there is one thing I could stop people saying it's "I'm using the latest (program XYZ)".  In the case of NVDA, the latest might be 2017.3 because you are using Windows XP, it might be 2019.3.1, or it might be NVDA alpha-19724,2c4caa62.  In the case of Windows or Office, it's even harder, as the latest version available TO YOU might be different to the latest version I can get - because of any number of random things like where we each are, which video card our PC has, or simply Microsoft not wanting to roll out something to everyone at once, so rolling it out to a random 10% of users, and one of us is in that group and one not.

Please, if you are reporting anything, to any software company, include the version number - that's why software has version numbers :)

Re: 2019.3.1 Update- Help

Re the mouse and Chrome, if you press NVDA+M is mouse tracking enabled?  (Note that toggles it, so you may need to press it twice to ensure it is "enabled".  It seems to be working for me, but if you have mouse tracking enabled and it isn't working for you on sites like Wikipedia or NVAccess.org, if you could send me a log at debug level to info@..., I can have a look.

Re Outlook, there are a couple of issues at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues so if you could clarify what is happening, we can try to ascertain if it is one of those known issues (and if so where we're at investigating it) or something different.

Re: changes in speech in NVDA 2019.3

Quentin Christensen
 

We did rewrite a lot of the speech code, although for now this shouldn't be an overly different experience, it was more to make future changes and maintenance easier.  Evidently you've found something that does work slightly differently.

Not sure about the first one, I'll have to learn GMails keyboard shortcuts more - but re editing words, I've written that up https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/10808

Regards

Quentin.

Hi all,

does anyone know whether there have been changes to the speech processing part of NVDA in the 2019.3 update? I didn't spot anything in the change log, but I experience a couple of things that are different from the 2019.2.1 version.

The first one is very minor ... when I tag an email in gmail so that it goes into an existing  folder, I press c to go to the combo box listing all folders, then I press a letter corresponding to the first letter of the folder name - such as f for my Facebook notifications. Once focus is on Facebook I tab over and activate the Go button, which applied the label to the email. Since 2019.3 the letter I pressed (in this case f) gets spoken when I tab over to the Go button; this did not happen before 2019.3.If I need to press the letter more than once to continue past Facebook to Farming and then to Fiction, NVDA now announces "fff" which is mildly annoying!

More of a problem is when I mistype words ... I regularly mistype because as becuase and words ending in tion as toin ... I suspect when I've done this and immediately select the word and retype it without presing space to move onto typing the next word. As a result the first mistyping doesn't get spoken straight away ... it gets spoken as I press space or punctuation ... and it merges the mistyped word in with the correct version, and they are seemlessly connected like they are one single word, becuasebecause ... the same happened in this post when I mistyped punctuation as puncutation and got "puncutationpunctuation" as a result.

The only irritation with this is that it makes it difficult to tell whether the subsequent attempts at spelling the word correctly has removed the typo or whether it is still mistyped.

I'm curious whether this is an intentional change and, if so, what the thinking behind it is.

Giles

Re: NVDA 2019.3.1 Not saying selected and unselected

Hi David,

Which synthesizer are you using?  This seems to work for me using OneCore or eSpeak NG.

Hi,

With 19.3.1 and windows 10 (up-to-date) NVDA will not say selected or
unselected on highlighted files/folders/shortcuts when tapping the space
bar.  If I do a quick search using the first letter, the first instance
of a file/ folder/shortcut is selected, but not spoken by NVDA, I have
to arrow down then up to confirm selection.

All add-ons have been removed.  The situation is the same when loading
NVDA 19.3.1 onto a brand new computer.

Reinstalling 19.2.1 resolves the problem.

Any help is appreciated.  Is this a bug or will changing a setting
resolve this?

Thank you,

As I told in other message, that is not a NVDA bug.

See in the CodeFactory Vocalizer Expressive configurations if they don't have a option to control that...
