Improving Latency and Heading Functionalities in Word Processors

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,

I am in a situation of importance with unique requirements, wherein I
basically need to use some form of a word processor to very quickly
type notes, edit them, move them around, and navigate efficiently
between different sections of the document. For this purpose, I have
tried two options - (i) Microsoft Word, and (ii) Wordpad
Pro of MS Word (version 2016): (1), ability to use headings
Con of MS Word: up to 0.3 seconds (measured using Gesture Timing
add-on) of latency in moving line by lines and up to 0.2 seconds of
latency when moving paragraph by paragraph
Pro of Wordpad: very responsive with an average of about 0.05 seconds
of latency in case of both line and paragraph navigation
Con of Wordpad: no feature of heading labelling and navigation by heading

The above minor differences in heading functionality and the slight
differences in latency may seem trivial and negligible for general
use, but my use case requires these characteristics. On ways to
address these, here are a few things I have done:
MS Word: I have disabled document formatting settings like pages,
tables, row/column headers and cell coordinates. Are there any other
document formatting settings whose disabling is known to cause a
reasonably significant improvement in latency? Also, just once, I
tried enabling the “Use UI Automation to access Microsoft Word
document controls when available” option (Advanced category setting in
NVDA) and which experience resulted in a lot of NVDA freezing and
hiccups, as a result of which experience I have not bothered playing
around with it anymore. Would it be advisable to retry this option in
case it is known to produce snappier responsiveness in Word 2016?
Wordpad: I do not believe I can somehow obtain heading functionality
in Wordpad, and even if I somehow do, I am unclear as to how I would
be able to use browse mode single letter navigation to quickly jump by
headings. The things to consider here then become if there may be
other lightweight word processors with less latency than Word and
heading labelling and navigation features.

I would greatly appreciate all your thoughts and inputs on the above.

Thanks.

Hi.

1.  Did you have NumLock set to Off?

2.  Numpad 6 goes to next word, Numpad 4 goes to previous word.

What I found worked to read my test Word document in a “Say All” fashion With NVDA running was Tab plus the Triangle Down Arrow.

 

Reading by Word or Character also were supposed to be the same as they are in Jaws, but I could not get that to work.  Instead I had to use the Windows command of Control plus Right Arrow or Control plus Left Arrow.

 

The NVDA stated command to exit NVDA “Insert Q” worked, that is it brought up a dialog to exit.  However, that dialog states to exit use “Alt plus D” and that did nothing.

 

I am not trying to knock NVDA, I want to learn it.  It’s just I am beginning to wonder if there is something, I need to do with my computer for it to work with the commands stated in its own user guide.

I heard that they are not able to use different language braille codes! I also was told they feel like plastic and the cells feel like they might brake if you push down to hard. Is this true? Thanks Heather

The braille me is a 20-cell braille display with cursor router buttons. It works as a book reader, braille display for a computer, android tablet, iPad, iPhone, NVDA or jaws screen reader with USB and bluetooth. The orbit reader is an 8-dot 20-cell braille display that works as a book reader, noteTaker, and a display for a computer or phone or tablet. The braille me costs $540 including shipping. The orbit reader costs around $625 including shipping.

If you use numpad 2 be sure that the numlock is off.
I tend to use the laptop keyboard setting with NVDA.

Vicky are you getting the information from the NVDA help menu?

Use the numpad key and down arrow on the main keyboard. 
 
The numpad doesn't do anything in NVDA it does in JAWS.  It is used for screen review and for functions like the equivalent of the JAWS cursor.  Use standard Windows navigation commands.
 
I'm not saying the following to seem incredulous or dismissive, but you have made a number of statements that are very difficult to believe and I'm not helping you unless I comment on them.
 
When I used the guide many years ago that error wasn't present.  I find it very hard to believe that a properly written section of the Guide in the help section would have changed and now contain such errors. 
 
There is a document for those transitioning from JAWS to NVDA, which I haven't looked at much.  While it may contain such an error, again I find it hard to believe that it has been available for a number of years and no such complaint has appeared on the JAWS' users' list.  So I want to be sure what you are using and how you are getting to it.
 
Tab doesn't do what you say.  Of course, some sort of malfunction can't be ruled out but it is very unlikely that a malfunction of that type would have occurred.  What is more likely is something like that you enabled the caps lock to work as an NVDA key and are using that along with the down arrow key on the main keyboard.  That will start read to end, and I find that much more convenient than using numpad insert down arrow.  You can also use the main keyboard insert as well but again, I find caps lock down arrow to be much more convenient.

Numpad down arrow Numpad 2). Same goes with cursor navigation commands –
NVDA does have a set of reading and navigation commands that utilizes
Numpad, but they are meant for use in certain situations not accessible
with traditional keyboard commands for reading text (called review

Several people (including yours truly) have published numerous tutorials
for getting started with NVDA. One of the most cited document is
“Switching from JAWS to NVDA” written by Kara Goldfinch, which can be

Re: you tube downloader

Gene
 

Has the person tried downloading the file as a wave file using Ponce?  The program presets and limits MP3 downloads to an unacceptably low bit rate, for anyone who wants more than mediocre quality MP3 files.  But I tried downloading a file as a wave file and it sounded fine.  the person could download the file, then convert it to MP3 using a conversion program where he can set his/her own parameters.  It appears to me that the developer of the program, chose to simplify it to the point where the quality of the program is significantly degraded.  But that is a way around the problem.

Importing QRead 3.1 bookmarks and books into QRead 3.21

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

So recently, I noticed that there was an update to QRead 3.1.

I downloaded the new portable Version 3.21 to my Google Drive folder to use as this allows me to maintain synchronicity across my different computers (reading position, library, bookmarks, etc.).

My question is, how do I go about bringing my various bookmarks and titles I’m currently reading in V 3.1 to V 3.21? There are a bunch of files and folder in the 3.1 folder and I’m guessing it’s a question of copying and pasting certain ones from one folder to the updated folder version, but I don’t know which ones those would be.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Re: urgent. I can't read my Amtrak ticket.

Blaster
 

I'm glad it worked and you got that figured out in time.
As far as setting Internet Explorer to open all of your attachments,
Normally, the default app settings area is where you set the
applications to do what you want them to do, but Internet Explorer
isn't listed as an option for viewing photos in this area, so you'll
need to set this manually.

If you used the first method I posted to open your photo, that is, by
finding the photo in the file explorer and using the application key
to select it with the "open with" option, then this will be very easy.

In that same "open with" menu, at the bottom, is a selection titled
"choose another app".

Press the enter key on that and you'll get a new window.

There will be a list box with some available programs to open that
file, including Internet Explorer.

Use the up or down arrows to find Internet Explorer, but don't press
the enter key on it.

Instead, Use the tab key to find a checkbox that says "Always use this
app to open ..." and press the spacebar to check that box.

Then tab to the OK button and press the enter key. This will open the
program with the file loaded and remember that anytime it is asked to
open a file with the same file extension, it will open it in Internet
Explorer.

If you receive photos in mixed file types, like .GIF, .JPG, .PNG,
then you will need to do this for each one individually as needed.

Blaster

Press the alt key and tap the letter F key to open the file menu.

Arrow down to the selection titled open and press the enter key.

Tab over to the browse button and press the enter key.

Tab once to the files of type drop down menu and press the alt key and
the down arrow key to open the menu.

Select view Images option and press the enter key.

Press the shift key and tap the tab key to jump up to the drop down
menu where you can select the folder where your photo is stored ,
press the alt key and the down arrow key to make your selection and
then press the enter key.

Tab down to the file list and navigate to that image and press the
enter key to select it.

You'll need to tab to the open button or just press the enter key one
more time, then it should be on screen.

Since this is an emergency, try this.

Open file explorer by pressing the windows key and tapping the letter E
key.

Navigate to the folder where your ticket image was saved.

Press the application key or use the shift key plus the F10 key.

Arrow down to the selection titled "open with" and press the right
arrow key to open the fly out window.

Internet explorer should be one of your options.

If you saved the image to your desktop, you can press the application
key on that file and one of the options is titled , open file
location, which will open file explorer in the exact folder the file
is stored in.

yes some old spinning hard drive just fail by sitting on the shelf
unused. and by old i mean even if you buy 1 today and stick it on a
shelf for a year or 2 it will not perform as fast as it can.

I should add that some people might wonder what difference it makes since at
some point, the external drive will fail as well. I would think that it is
more likely for a computer to fail sooner, perhaps a good deal sooner, than
a hard drive might. A hard drive is one component of a computer. But if
you use a computer as a backup, you are using a much more complex piece of
equipment with much more potential ways of failing.

And an external drive would have the advantage that when the laptop stops
working, you won't have to do anything to create another backup.

The trouble is, a high capacity SSD is probably going to be prohibitively
expensive and SSD's aren't as robust as spinning drives when it comes to
writes and rewrites to the same sectors. I would get a small SSD maybe 256
gb to hold the OS and its related data and a 1 or 2 tb spinning drive for
everything else. If there is room, you could mount another internal,
otherwise, an external drive would do the trick.

This is all relative to your budget.

Hello, my drive was bad in my laptop according to the tecs. So they want
to replace it with a ssd drive. So my old hard drive was a 1 tb drive. So
should I ask for a 1tb ssd drive to equal the old drive space? My pc had
1tb, 8 gb quad core I7. They said their was nothing wrong with all the other
parts memory good, usb good, sound card good etc. So wonder why the hard
drive had issues, sie. IWonder if I should fix this laptop or get a knew
one. I only have it as a backup in case my desktop goes haywire woe! Cheers
Heather
