Now available: DAISY version of Welcome to NVDA 2018


Clive Pallett
 

Hello Gene,
 
You can copy it to HumanWare's victor Reader players and depending on the structure you can navigate by different levels, e.g. headings, chapter, page, etc.  I have just downloaded the zipped archive and copied it to my victor Reader Stream 2.  There are three levels of navigation, chapter, heading and phrase, and whatever time jump you have selected.  .  There is only audio playback, there isn't associated text.  Before each chapter, there is the NVDA installation music.
 
Many thanks to Joseph for all his hard work recording the tutorial.
 
Best wishes,
 
Clive Pallett

They're mp3 files.

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

Hi,

 

I did find them as mp3 files. I don't have a device like the victor stream or plex-talk to be able to jump from section to section.

Thank you. I do have the original tutorial that Joseph did on my external music drive. I don't have plex-talk or a victor stream reader but the original tutorial will be just fine for me.

 

Thanks again.

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.
