Keynote for NVDA

Sky Mundell
 

Hello everybody and the NVDA Conference folks. Sky here. I wanted to let you guys know that I went on TeamTalk and listened to the keynote, and it was the greatest keynote I ever heard! I am also very happy that it is being sustainable for the future and so on and so forth. As an adaptive technology specialist training blind folks how to use screen reading software I can tell you folks that I defenatly do training on NVDA, and my clients enjoy it too!  however, I am finding a shortcoming with it that I think could be addressed in future versions, and I will list it below.

Often times when I train on NVDA, one of the first things I will do is I will download the clipboard speak add-on, so that the client knows when they have copied text to the clipboard. Is there any chance that this function could be put into the core? The reason is that it would save myself from having to add the function and it would also help some of my less technically minded clients. Because often times, as we all know, the less technically minded clients want things to be able to work straight out of the box, and they’re not going to fight with their screen reader just to get something to work. Thanks, Sky.

 

It sounds like you guys are having a really cool time, sadly, the days the conference is on are my weekend.

And I can't sit in front of a device all day long so I will have to listen to recordings like allways.

Hi Group,

I have not participated in the NVDA Conference and so I am ignorant of this Keynote business.  Are they incorporating Keynote Synthesizer into NVDA or somehow making it usable with NVDA?  Is this a free or paid product?

I used to like the way that synthesizer sounded.  Any information on list would be greatly appreciated.

In this case I think the subject line refers to the opening or focus of this nvda convention and not a piece of software.

Hi.  As my time zone didn't coincide with some of the NVDA con events, and at other times which did coincide had been filled with family commitments, I wonder if there will be recordings made available for us whose time zones or otherwise personal commitmenst cannot fit us into the shedules?  Cheers and thanks.

Hi sky


I have not used it for years.


Are you aware that if you say copy text to the clip board with ctrl + C you can use the nvda key + C to confirm it has been copied. It will either say what you have copied or say something like to much info to read out I just can not think what it says just now or there is no content on the clip board.


I wonder if it could say it audible so you know it has been copied but also have it so it could be turned off in the add on.


Usually the short cut key is what I use to confirm if needed.

Well I wish I could have participate but this is also why I don't skype or do oversease work on skype, or find it really hard to do active online game testing.

My timezone is just to oposite to work properly.

The only time it does work is late at night us time and that assumes I am even at home.

I have missed out on a lot of things simply because my zone is simply going the wrong direction.

Its also why from time to time, when a topic closes in another zone I have to catch up to it being closed and don't get my chance to put my bit in but oh well.

Half the world sleeps and the rest are up, at least someone is up at all times.

That doesn't tell you if you have copied files or cut them, only text.  And unless you know the number of characters to expect to hear announced, when there is more than a small amount of text on the clipboard, the function tells you the number of characters.  What if it is text you copied earlier because, for some reason, new text isn't copied?  This feature should be changed.  It should read anything, no matter how long.  The user can stop speech with control, as always.  The screen-reader shouldn't decide for the user what is too long to read from the clipboard.  That is a complete contradiction of the philosophy of NVDA and is not allowing the user to decide what to hear and what not.

Hello everybody and the NVDA Conference folks. Sky here. I wanted to let
you guys know that I went on TeamTalk and listened to the keynote, and it
was the greatest keynote I ever heard! I am also very happy that it is being
sustainable for the future and so on and so forth. As an adaptive technology
specialist training blind folks how to use screen reading software I can
tell you folks that I defenatly do training on NVDA, and my clients enjoy it
too! however, I am finding a shortcoming with it that I think could be
addressed in future versions, and I will list it below.

Often times when I train on NVDA, one of the first things I will do is I
will download the clipboard speak add-on, so that the client knows when they
have copied text to the clipboard. Is there any chance that this function
could be put into the core? The reason is that it would save myself from
having to add the function and it would also help some of my less
technically minded clients. Because often times, as we all know, the less
technically minded clients want things to be able to work straight out of
the box, and they’re not going to fight with their screen reader just to get
something to work. Thanks, Sky.

Or, make the “too long” setting configurable by the user.

That doesn't tell you if you have copied files or cut them, only text.  And unless you know the number of characters to expect to hear announced, when there is more than a small amount of text on the clipboard, the function tells you the number of characters.  What if it is text you copied earlier because, for some reason, new text isn't copied?  This feature should be changed.  It should read anything, no matter how long.  The user can stop speech with control, as always.  The screen-reader shouldn't decide for the user what is too long to read from the clipboard.  That is a complete contradiction of the philosophy of NVDA and is not allowing the user to decide what to hear and what not.

Hi sky 


I have not used it for years.


Are you aware that if you say copy text to the clip board with ctrl + C you can use the nvda key + C to confirm it has been copied. It will either say what you have copied or say something like to much info to read out I just can not think what it says just now or there is no content on the clip board.


I wonder if it could say it audible so you know it has been copied but also have it so it could be turned off in the add on.


Usually the short cut key is what I use to confirm if needed.

You can build a preconfigured portable version with addon installed

If you follow that advice, you should also include add-on updater and Windows 10 App Essentials.
