Bob,
 
You misunderstood the command.  The NVDA key is the same as the Jaws key, you hold down the , Insert key.  So for this command hold down the, Insert & Control keys at the same time,
and press the letter, V, as in Victor.
 
The keystroke is, Insert, Control + V.

Hi Bob,
 
To get to the Speech settings / properties page quickly press, Insert / NVDA Key, Control + V.
 
Now tab many times to find the options for how you want the capital letters reported.

Hi Dave,
NVDA has two options for differentiating between lower and upper case.
You can either have the voice change pitch, or you can have a beep. Or
you can have both.
Once you've selected that option, you can simply arrow to the letter and
it will do its thing.
Not sure how it works in braille, if at all. But again, beeps should
work in that case as well.
Hope that helps.
Cheers,
Damien.

Re: email question

Ann Parsons
 

Hi all,

Yes, Siri is notorious for this kind of debacle. The messages that make me laugh the most are the ones where the person dictating doesn't voice any punctuation marks and you get a long email where in order to read it you have to take a deep breath, and then, start speaking and hope that your air lasts through the whole message. At the end you can actually hear yourself gasping for breath. It's a complete hoot!

So, is there an equivalent command in jaws or is the pitch change the only
way? I like the way my iPhone handles this by announcing a capital letter.

Has anyone ever downloaded podcasts with Book Port Plus

Steven Johnson
 

I have a Book Port Plus connected to my wifi.  I am trying to access podcasts from the BPP’s list of podcasts.  The unit will update the episodes list on some of the feeds, but either tells me that download failed, or the file type of the episode is unsupported.  Have any of you ever gotten to listen to podcasts on the BPP.  If so, how long has it been since you did so?  I’m trying to figure out if something is wrong with the unit, or if its technology is not compatible with modern podcast feeds.

I have found how to find out the size, and the font, but not whether or

Or if you happen to know the same command for NVDA that would work for

Ask the group owner or moderator to send you a bounce probe message, then once you get it, make sure to activate the link at the end.  It's worth a shot.

If that doesn't do it, I'd check with your e-mail service provider to see if they're blocking whatever the domain name groups.google.com.  This would be very odd, but it's not beyond the realm of possibility.

Re: Needing a Command to read if a letter is Capitalized

Hi Bob,
 
To get to the Speech settings / properties page quickly press, Insert / NVDA Key, Control + V.
 
Now tab many times to find the options for how you want the capital letters reported.

Hi Dave,
NVDA has two options for differentiating between lower and upper case.
You can either have the voice change pitch, or you can have a beep. Or
you can have both.
Once you've selected that option, you can simply arrow to the letter and
it will do its thing.
Not sure how it works in braille, if at all. But again, beeps should
work in that case as well.
Hope that helps.
Cheers,
Damien.

Re: ram and SSD not detected by new laptop

enes sarıbaş
 

Hi Again,

Removed SSD, and each ram stick one by one,. Still the same issue. One interesting issue is that even if I power cycle the laptop,  it will spin up fans randomly on its own sometimes. I held down the power button for 30 seconds a couple times to cut power in hopes it would solve the problem, burt it does not. Looks like a service call is in order. I sincerely hope   its not a dead machine and ends up costing me.

It may not, it depends on the system. I used to have a computer where if i would plug in a particular usb drive it just would not boot.


I assume I am not able to insert the ram incorrectly?

Correct, ram only goes in one way. If you feel along the long edge one side will have a little slot close to the center. This slot has to aline with a notch on the ram socket.


The interesting thing is that  the ram  was detected normally as a
single stick. I hope kingston will send me a replacement if it is defective.


They should. Also, try plugging both sticks in but one at a time. Based on what you've said so far I think it'll power on with one in but not the other.



HTH.

Pull one of the ram sticks and power on. If you get the same result, swap them out and do it again. I'm suspicious you have a bad ram stick.

If it still doesn't power on properly pull the ssd and try again. I assume this computer came with a ram and memory config. It might be worth restoring it to that config and then swap out the hardware piece by piece, doing the power up test after each piece to see what's bad.

An update. So I swapped out the ram sticks, and both firmly inserted. The SSD also fit snugly. However when I plugged in a flash drive to install windows, and powered on the pc,  the fans spun up at max settings for a while, then stopped. When they spun up again, the logo briefly appeared, however, after I powered up the computer again, now the system will not display anything on screen. The fans spin up, then spin down periodically until I turn it off. Does anyone know of a solution for this? None of the indicators on the computer light up.

Hi all,

So when purchasing a laptop I  opted to buy my own ram modules and SSD. However, as I was inserting the modules for the first time, I  spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out the correct direction to insert them. However, when I did insert one, it firmly clicked into place. The second one only inserted backside up in the same position. The clips  latched on and hold it, but it seems to buldge a bit, and the clips didn't audibly click. When inserting the SSD, the  SSD slot was covered by a piece of plastic wrap. I unscrewed the screw, inserted into the MDOC2 slot and screwed the screw back on. However, the SSd was loose, and the plastic came loose. My question is,  what did I do wrong exactly with the SSD? And is that plastic wrap needed? I inserted it again, and it seems to be ok,  but the dirve isn't detected by bios iether. And only one of the ram modules is detected. What can I do about this? Do I pull the clips apart and press downward to seat the memory module. I assume it was inserted correctly, as it isn't possible apparently to insert ram the wrong way.

Re: NVDA is improved!

Gene
 

You can tab around and hear the fields announced. It automatically announces things like whomever has joined or left a meeting and who has sent a chat message. I don't recallif it reads it or if you have to read it yourself. and if you want to control what announcements are announced, you can get an NVDA add-on which lets you control such information.

I suspect, though I don't know this, that Zoom uses forced speech to have these announcements read. I doubt the screen-reader has anything to do with this. I can't support that guess other than to say it just sounds like forced speech messages from what is said and how, not messages scripted into the screen-reader.

Hi all,

I used to have to switch to a different screen reader when I wanted to use
the BARD Express program because NVDA wouldn't read the entire anotation. I
also used to have to switch when doing anything having to do with lists
because NVDA would continually tell me the top item in the list before it
would voice the current one. This was annoying.

I find now, after the recent update, that both these problems have been
resolved! I'm a happy camper and I'm using NVDA almost exclusively.
Oh, and BTW, I like the way it behaves in Zoom!
