Hi Joseph!

I totally agree with what you are saying. People get so used to one person doing everything, then their expectations for that one person get far too high. If we want a written version of the tutorial, then let us start working on it. I am so grateful and happy with the audio version. I am afraid that this NVDA group, and all the demands will cause you to have to leave altogether. We sure do not want that. It is always a few people having to do it all, even in my church. That is too bad, that people just sit back and wait for someone else to do what they want, instead of doing it themselves. I am so sorry, Joseph, that people rely on you too much.

Joseph,

I fully support your view on this. As NVDA largely supports those of us who

are blind or visually impaired, The your audio version makes the Tutorial in

MP3 available to the widest user profile. I can't imagine the time you put

into the production. I hope that others know that you didn't just sit down

and start recording off the top of your head. The material is far too well

organized and your examples to well selected and described to not have taken

you untold hours of pre-production.

A text version would allow one to cut and paste a personal set of reminders,

but in no way, should that fall on you. I can also understand that you would

not be comfortable with less than an exact accurate copy of your work.

Though you did not copyright the Tutorial, which you might have elected to

do. Nor did you offer to sell it, though I, for one, would have gladly paid.

 

 

I suggest to this group that volunteers could use this forum to create a

free transcription Service, divide up the tutorial with each person taking

on sections to produce in a common text format. Others might serve as an

editorial board to proof and finalize the text version to be submitted to

you for approval.

 

When I was a grad student, I barely had time to keep up with my studies. I

would never had time to do what you do for NVDA and for this list.

Hi,

The user guide is the text version at the moment, and no, I won't be able to

transcribe the tutorial set on my own. There is an additional, important

condition to be met: the community must demand it. I want to see the

community wanting this; I want to see the community REALLY wanting this to

happen; I want to see the community rise up to do it; I want to get a firm

promise from the community that they'll take care of this with highest of

standards. Yes, I'm setting the bar really high on this for a number of

reasons:

1. Initiated and driven by the community: the era where you can just rely on

one person to do all sorts of things is coming to a close. In fact, we

should have left that era a long time ago. I believe that one way to move

forward is to let the community take care of itself when it is time to do so

(after being nurtured by leaders), hence my condition above regarding text

transcripts. I do know that the community can go above and beyond what I did

and can produce higher quality tutorials (complete with text transcripts),

hence the high quality requirement; but it won't work if the community

doesn't rise up to do this and other huge projects on its own.

2. Passing the torch to the next group of leaders: as noted a few weeks ago,

my active time with the community is slowly coming to a close. I believe

this is a great opportunity to find and teach the next group of leaders, and

one way to do so is giving them something to practice their skills, and

leading a huge project from start to finish is a good exercise. This is one

of the reasons why I don't involve myself a lot with NVDACon planning

recently, because I do know that current organizers can do a much better job

at organizing this gathering. Same could be set about transcriptions:

although some guidance is needed in the beginning, I believe that the

community is more than ready to tackle this from start to finish: producing

a high quality text transcription of the tutorial set.

3. Personal: I carry out some important community duties on top of being a

student and a speech and debate competitor (with trophies under my belt,

including several first place finishes and being qualified to go to national

tournaments). If you thought I am just an NVDA Expert because I can answer

questions with detailed guesses at midnight or seem to possess encyclopedic

knowledge about NVDA source code, I'd like you to sincerely think again,

taking into consideration who I really am: a student volunteer. Given that

academics takes highest of highest of priorities, I dare not go through

another project that'll drain me (this is the biggest regret I have about

producing the audio tutorial set when I should have been taking breaks).

To be blunt (sorry for coming across as too harsh): I usually don't say this

in public, but I believe it must be said before it is too late: an

accomplishment without a spark and a flame is nothing. That is, if you just

wish for things to happen without acting on it, it would have been better to

not wish it in the first place. One of the reasons why I felt burnt out from

this community (especially during tutorial set production) is people's

tendency to ask without acting on that wish, and a persistent attitude that

one must wait for a savior to give guidance without taking the initiative to

think progress and search for things on one's own. And I'm afraid that

either I have contributed to this problem, or that we are not heeding this

and similar criticisms. Thus, before we go any further (such as downloading

the book format one cannot read right now), I sincerely advise you to heed

this criticism for once, because without doing so, we won't see much

progress; I think it would be helpful for us (as a community) to assess what

we're doing, our attitudes, and what we need to do in the future, so that we

can be a much better community: a community where people can answer each

other with more confidence.

Hope this helps. I do know that my post may come across as harsh, and may

not have answered your questions. But I believe that there are more

important matters to think about, more important than text transcription of

Welcome to NVDA 2018 that'll have profound effect on this community and

beyond.

Cheers,

Joseph

Joseph, don't worry about it. We the community could probably scoop up money to have it professionally transcribed.

one way to do so is giving them something to practice their skills, and

leading a huge project from start to finish is a good exercise. This is one

of the reasons why I don't involve myself a lot with NVDACon planning

recently, because I do know that current organizers can do a much better job

at organizing this gathering. Same could be set about transcriptions:

although some guidance is needed in the beginning, I believe that the

community is more than ready to tackle this from start to finish: producing

a high quality text transcription of the tutorial set.

3. Personal: I carry out some important community duties on top of being a

student and a speech and debate competitor (with trophies under my belt,

including several first place finishes and being qualified to go to national

tournaments). If you thought I am just an NVDA Expert because I can answer

questions with detailed guesses at midnight or seem to possess encyclopedic

knowledge about NVDA source code, I'd like you to sincerely think again,

taking into consideration who I really am: a student volunteer. Given that

academics takes highest of highest of priorities, I dare not go through

another project that'll drain me (this is the biggest regret I have about

producing the audio tutorial set when I should have been taking breaks).

To be blunt (sorry for coming across as too harsh): I usually don't say this

in public, but I believe it must be said before it is too late: an

accomplishment without a spark and a flame is nothing. That is, if you just

wish for things to happen without acting on it, it would have been better to

not wish it in the first place. One of the reasons why I felt burnt out from

this community (especially during tutorial set production) is people's

tendency to ask without acting on that wish, and a persistent attitude that

one must wait for a savior to give guidance without taking the initiative to

think progress and search for things on one's own. And I'm afraid that

either I have contributed to this problem, or that we are not heeding this

and similar criticisms. Thus, before we go any further (such as downloading

the book format one cannot read right now), I sincerely advise you to heed

this criticism for once, because without doing so, we won't see much

progress; I think it would be helpful for us (as a community) to assess what

we're doing, our attitudes, and what we need to do in the future, so that we

can be a much better community: a community where people can answer each

other with more confidence.

Hope this helps. I do know that my post may come across as harsh, and may

not have answered your questions. But I believe that there are more

important matters to think about, more important than text transcription of

Welcome to NVDA 2018 that'll have profound effect on this community and

beyond.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi,

As for people relying on me: I do understand this to some extent, but I do know that, at some point, people will need to look for things on their own. As a famous proverb says, “teach a man to fish, and he’ll feed himself all his life” or something similar. As much as I love serving as an expert, I do know that, eventually, there will be someone much greater than I who can do much better things than some of us did. At the moment, besides studying, my job in the community seems to be raising up the next group of experts, who can take NVDA and the community to the next level. There are some projects I’m personally leading at the moment (such as teaching some of you the internals of NVDA), but I do know that we do have experts who are more than ready to showcase their skills – it’s a matter of identifying these people and giving them proper training experience.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi Joseph!

I totally agree with what you are saying. People get so used to one person doing everything, then their expectations for that one person get far too high. If we want a written version of the tutorial, then let us start working on it. I am so grateful and happy with the audio version. I am afraid that this NVDA group, and all the demands will cause you to have to leave altogether. We sure do not want that. It is always a few people having to do it all, even in my church. That is too bad, that people just sit back and wait for someone else to do what they want, instead of doing it themselves. I am so sorry, Joseph, that people rely on you too much.

Joseph,

I fully support your view on this. As NVDA largely supports those of us who

are blind or visually impaired, The your audio version makes the Tutorial in

MP3 available to the widest user profile. I can't imagine the time you put

into the production. I hope that others know that you didn't just sit down

and start recording off the top of your head. The material is far too well

organized and your examples to well selected and described to not have taken

you untold hours of pre-production.

A text version would allow one to cut and paste a personal set of reminders,

but in no way, should that fall on you. I can also understand that you would

not be comfortable with less than an exact accurate copy of your work.

Though you did not copyright the Tutorial, which you might have elected to

do. Nor did you offer to sell it, though I, for one, would have gladly paid.

 

 

I suggest to this group that volunteers could use this forum to create a

free transcription Service, divide up the tutorial with each person taking

on sections to produce in a common text format. Others might serve as an

editorial board to proof and finalize the text version to be submitted to

you for approval.

 

When I was a grad student, I barely had time to keep up with my studies. I

would never had time to do what you do for NVDA and for this list.

Hi,

The user guide is the text version at the moment, and no, I won't be able to

transcribe the tutorial set on my own. There is an additional, important

condition to be met: the community must demand it. I want to see the

community wanting this; I want to see the community REALLY wanting this to

happen; I want to see the community rise up to do it; I want to get a firm

promise from the community that they'll take care of this with highest of

standards. Yes, I'm setting the bar really high on this for a number of

reasons:

1. Initiated and driven by the community: the era where you can just rely on

one person to do all sorts of things is coming to a close. In fact, we

should have left that era a long time ago. I believe that one way to move

forward is to let the community take care of itself when it is time to do so

(after being nurtured by leaders), hence my condition above regarding text

transcripts. I do know that the community can go above and beyond what I did

and can produce higher quality tutorials (complete with text transcripts),

hence the high quality requirement; but it won't work if the community

doesn't rise up to do this and other huge projects on its own.

2. Passing the torch to the next group of leaders: as noted a few weeks ago,

my active time with the community is slowly coming to a close. I believe

this is a great opportunity to find and teach the next group of leaders, and

one way to do so is giving them something to practice their skills, and

leading a huge project from start to finish is a good exercise. This is one

of the reasons why I don't involve myself a lot with NVDACon planning

recently, because I do know that current organizers can do a much better job

at organizing this gathering. Same could be set about transcriptions:

although some guidance is needed in the beginning, I believe that the

community is more than ready to tackle this from start to finish: producing

a high quality text transcription of the tutorial set.

3. Personal: I carry out some important community duties on top of being a

student and a speech and debate competitor (with trophies under my belt,

including several first place finishes and being qualified to go to national

tournaments). If you thought I am just an NVDA Expert because I can answer

questions with detailed guesses at midnight or seem to possess encyclopedic

knowledge about NVDA source code, I'd like you to sincerely think again,

taking into consideration who I really am: a student volunteer. Given that

academics takes highest of highest of priorities, I dare not go through

Joseph,
I fully support your view on this. As NVDA largely supports those of us who
are blind or visually impaired, The your audio version makes the Tutorial in
MP3 available to the widest user profile. I can't imagine the time you put
into the production. I hope that others know that you didn't just sit down
and start recording off the top of your head. The material is far too well
organized and your examples to well selected and described to not have taken
you untold hours of pre-production.
A text version would allow one to cut and paste a personal set of reminders,
but in no way, should that fall on you. I can also understand that you would
not be comfortable with less than an exact accurate copy of your work.
Though you did not copyright the Tutorial, which you might have elected to
do. Nor did you offer to sell it, though I, for one, would have gladly paid.


I suggest to this group that volunteers could use this forum to create a
free transcription Service, divide up the tutorial with each person taking
on sections to produce in a common text format. Others might serve as an
editorial board to proof and finalize the text version to be submitted to
you for approval.

When I was a grad student, I barely had time to keep up with my studies. I
would never had time to do what you do for NVDA and for this list.

Hi,
The user guide is the text version at the moment, and no, I won't be able to
transcribe the tutorial set on my own. There is an additional, important
condition to be met: the community must demand it. I want to see the
community wanting this; I want to see the community REALLY wanting this to
happen; I want to see the community rise up to do it; I want to get a firm
promise from the community that they'll take care of this with highest of
standards. Yes, I'm setting the bar really high on this for a number of
reasons:
1. Initiated and driven by the community: the era where you can just rely on
one person to do all sorts of things is coming to a close. In fact, we
should have left that era a long time ago. I believe that one way to move
forward is to let the community take care of itself when it is time to do so
(after being nurtured by leaders), hence my condition above regarding text
transcripts. I do know that the community can go above and beyond what I did
and can produce higher quality tutorials (complete with text transcripts),
hence the high quality requirement; but it won't work if the community
doesn't rise up to do this and other huge projects on its own.
2. Passing the torch to the next group of leaders: as noted a few weeks ago,
my active time with the community is slowly coming to a close. I believe
this is a great opportunity to find and teach the next group of leaders, and
one way to do so is giving them something to practice their skills, and
leading a huge project from start to finish is a good exercise. This is one
of the reasons why I don't involve myself a lot with NVDACon planning
recently, because I do know that current organizers can do a much better job
at organizing this gathering. Same could be set about transcriptions:
although some guidance is needed in the beginning, I believe that the
community is more than ready to tackle this from start to finish: producing
a high quality text transcription of the tutorial set.
3. Personal: I carry out some important community duties on top of being a
student and a speech and debate competitor (with trophies under my belt,
including several first place finishes and being qualified to go to national
tournaments). If you thought I am just an NVDA Expert because I can answer
questions with detailed guesses at midnight or seem to possess encyclopedic
knowledge about NVDA source code, I'd like you to sincerely think again,
taking into consideration who I really am: a student volunteer. Given that
academics takes highest of highest of priorities, I dare not go through
another project that'll drain me (this is the biggest regret I have about
producing the audio tutorial set when I should have been taking breaks).
To be blunt (sorry for coming across as too harsh): I usually don't say this
in public, but I believe it must be said before it is too late: an
accomplishment without a spark and a flame is nothing. That is, if you just
wish for things to happen without acting on it, it would have been better to
not wish it in the first place. One of the reasons why I felt burnt out from
this community (especially during tutorial set production) is people's
tendency to ask without acting on that wish, and a persistent attitude that
one must wait for a savior to give guidance without taking the initiative to
think progress and search for things on one's own. And I'm afraid that
either I have contributed to this problem, or that we are not heeding this
and similar criticisms. Thus, before we go any further (such as downloading
the book format one cannot read right now), I sincerely advise you to heed
this criticism for once, because without doing so, we won't see much
progress; I think it would be helpful for us (as a community) to assess what
we're doing, our attitudes, and what we need to do in the future, so that we
can be a much better community: a community where people can answer each
other with more confidence.
Hope this helps. I do know that my post may come across as harsh, and may
not have answered your questions. But I believe that there are more
important matters to think about, more important than text transcription of
Welcome to NVDA 2018 that'll have profound effect on this community and
beyond.
Cheers,
Joseph

What I fail to understand is, if you do not have access to software or a
device that supports Daisy format, why you would download the Daisy format
of the tutorial. It's like buying Vinyl records when you do not have a
turntable and only have a CD player. It's just stupid. The tutorial from
Joseph's site is in MP3 format and is great for media players. The Daisy
format is for people with "Daisy players. Period. Choose the format that
works best for your situation.

You can use a daisy player like amis to read this.

You can use your talking book machine to read this, all library machines are daisy complient.

You can use it on your smart phone.

Amis is one such player.

I am unsure about others as such, but dolphin easy reader full is only 85 bucks us for what it is and will work with nvda.

special player or is this a word document?

Basically yes daisy which is purely audio is kind of arranged under headings. You can make the indexing as deep as you like, but it works a little like a tree does but on a player there are navigation controls to help you just listen to the bits you want by drilling down to them through the indexes.

You need an mp3 player unless you can look and play the files separately. I haven't looked at the layout of Daisy books enough to know. the whole point of the daisy format is to be able to see material as you listen. JAWS has training material in the daisy format. You can listen to the text, listen to the audio, or skim or search the text to find something and then, listen to the audio. The two are synchronized. There is no additional benefit in listening to the mp3 files in the Daisy book as stand alone files in an mp3 player. You already can get the tutorial in that form..

I should also say that I have hardly used Daisy material. Perhaps there is just Daisy material that is almost all just recorded audio. If so, I would think there would be some sort of text you can look at that indicates the beginning of sections and perhaps gives names of the different sections so you can search for the section you want, then start listening to the audio at that point.

Normally they are mp3 files with control files that are basically indexing. Some may have text but not all. I know for example that some daisy stuff here are just indexed mp3 files. In fact if they are made correctly they normally play on an mp3 player if burned to a cd. Obviously not tested this specific one though.

If you have winamp, you can download the file and play it but you can't jump from section to section. You'd have to have something like a victor reader stream or plex-talk.

Hi Rose Marie,

 

If you have an NLS player, you should be able to use it for Daisy books.  Of course you won't get a text accompaniment, but it will play them and if properly constructed, you can move by chapters, sections ETC.

Pure audio DAISY allows you, provided it’s been properly structured, to jump to the start of chapters, sections, paragraphs etc; however, you do need a DAISY-compatible player such as the Victor Reader Stream or Plextalk or DAISY software to take advantage of this.

Unless I have a corrupted download there is a problem with the Daisy file in this download.

I have tried it in a couple of applications and it is being reported as unreadable in both. This is possibly why people are not managing to read it as a Daisy Book.

 

For example when I tried to open the daisy package.odf in FS  Reader it reported that the file was unreadable . When I try to open it from the context menu in Explorer and  point to FS Reader it caused it to crash. As an experiment I tried to also open it in calibre to see the actual file contexnts and calibre also reported it as unreadable.

However I did manage to open it in Notepad.

However  no daisy reader I have   can interpret it as a book.

You need an mp3 player unless you can look and play the files separately.  I haven't looked at the layout of Daisy books enough to know.  the whole point of the daisy format is to be able to see material as you listen.  JAWS has training material in the daisy format.  You can listen to the text, listen to the audio, or skim or search the text to find something and then, listen to the audio.  The two are synchronized.  There is no additional benefit in listening to the mp3 files in the Daisy book as stand alone files in an mp3 player.  You already can get the tutorial in that form.. 

 

I should also say that I have hardly used Daisy material.  Perhaps there is just Daisy material that is almost all just recorded audio.  If so, I would think there would be some sort of text you can look at that indicates the beginning of sections and perhaps gives names of the different sections so you can search for the section you want, then start listening to the audio at that point.

Hi,

The audio recordings are in mp3 format, which may explain why this isn’t working.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi, Joseph,

 

I'm not able to read the daisy format of the tutorial. Do you have to have a special player or is this a word document?

Hi everyone,

 

Thanks to AccessiDocs project from Pennsylvania Council of the Blind, an audio DAISY version of Welcome to NVDA 2018 tutorial set is now available from:

http://www.josephsl.net/files/nvda18/DB-Welcome_to_NVDA_2018-by-Joseph_lee.zip

 

The DAISY book is a bit out of date, but for the most part, it is up to date.

 

Also, a UK-based charity named BCAB has offered to distribute this tutorial set on physical media for a fee.

 

Enjoy.

Cheers,

Joseph

It's an audio file; not a text-based. And yes you need a special player to play these.
