DTS-HD MA Won't Play

Rob <captinlogic@...>
 

The DTS-HD-MA is the standard audio format for blu ray disks. I received a file that was ripped from a blu ray, and when I tried to play it back in the movies and TV App for windows 10, I got no audio.
Now I did a little fiddling around. I converted it to AC3 audio which is normal for DVD movies and got it to play back. This was done with FFmpeg which is something I'm familiar with and is easy. But i'd like to eliminate this extra step in future.
I was under the impression that the movies and TV app could handle blu ray encoding. Does something additional need to be installed for this to work?

I agree with Carlos. the term blindy, to me seems a bit degrading and childish. I'm not ashamed of being blind.

Syed, sorted my download issue.

I have installed kodi16 for windows and installed the screen reader and it came up talking. Not the greatest screen reader I've ever used, but useable.

I also tried installing 17 over the top of 16, but no speech.

So how do we enable speech after installing 17?.

Another question. How to install builds? I would like good movies, music, tv shows etc.

Is it possible for us blindys to achieve this?, Billy

Kodi Build.

Billy Inglis
 

hi guys, If I have annoyed anyone by mentioningthe term blindys. I have to apoligise.

Now lets get down to it. Now that we have Kodi6 with screen reader working. We are all I'm sure wanting to watch some content.

It would be really wonderful if some kind person like Syed could tell us how to get such content installed.

I'm sure like me you would like to watch Movies, tv shows sports, and any other content available to us with Kodi.

Over to you knowledgeableguys, Billy

Re: Kodi once more.

hi Syed, this is good news regarding the screen reader issue. How do we change the reader?, Billy

On 18/08/2017 22:33, syed hassan wrote:
Also, you can switch screen reader engine in the Kodi as well.
By default it uses the windows sapi5 engine. But you can change this to NVDA.
What this will do is, your primary screen reader like NVDA, System Access, or JAWS will also work in the Kodi as well.
So, rather than hearing the windows sapi5 voices. You will be able to hear your primary screen reader voice.
I would highly recommend to use Kodi v16 to just understand the structure and interface first.
Because KodiV16 has a rather simple and less confusing interface.
When you will get comfortable just update to the new version. Thanks,
Syed

Well, until self-driving cars become a commercial reality, there is certainly no compelling reason for automobile manufacturers to make their car radios accessible to blind passengers.  After all, if appliance and electronics manufacturers don't give a rat's ass about accessibility, why should auto makers?  I have a better solution.  If you're a passenger in a car and you want to listen to a particular radio station, then just carry around a small , Walkman-style portable radio with a set of earbuds, and this way you won't distract the driver or other passengers.  Maybe it's you who needs to think outside the box and look at the big picture.

Re: accessible car radios

As a general rule, I have to agree with Gene.  Although I don't always necessarily practice what I preach.  The occasional bit of humor is fine, but it is a technology/accessibility discussion list after all.  It would quickly get out of hand if we encouraged or supported too much casual humor.  I remember that is exactly what started to happen when we initially created the list and I had the sense we were close to losing subscribers.

Hi all,

Gerald, think out of the box.  If you have two or three or more people in a car, one of them drives, that leaves the other passengers to do things like talk on their cell phones, talk to each other and the driver, play word games, listen to music, and, amazingly enough, adjust the radio so that the driver can keep his/her eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.  If the passenger happens to be blind, it would be a service and probably a addition to the safety of the driver and the passengers if that blind person could operate the radio.  One can listen to music in one's living room, in one's kitchen, in one's den, and parish the thought in bed.  One can also listen to music while riding in a car.  One doesn't have to drive in order to listen to a car radio.  Think out of the box please!  <smiling with twinkle>  No, I shan't pardon you because I know you can think this one through.

You have to consider what would happen if people started doing this regularly  That's one reason why I very seldom do it.  Once in a greatwhile, I do, but I don't want to encourage it to become a general practice.

Understood, but isn't a little humor good for the soul & brain just to break the monotony of all this computer crap from time to time?  Providing of course, that it falls under the list guidelines.  A little levity always seem to lighten things up a tad bit.

Well, until self-driving cars become a commercial reality, there is certainly no compelling reason for automobile manufacturers to make their car radios accessible to blind passengers.  After all, if appliance and electronics manufacturers don't give a rat's ass about accessibility, why should auto makers?  I have a better solution.  If you're a passenger in a car and you want to listen to a particular radio station, then just carry around a small , Walkman-style portable radio with a set of earbuds, and this way you won't distract the driver or other passengers.  Maybe it's you who needs to think outside the box and look at the big picture.

Re: accessible car radios

I don't know if the exceptional reception would occur in the home.  I don't know the technicalities of this but somehow cars are supposed to give good ground plains to car radios.  I don't know if that affects just A.M. or A.M. and F.M.  But I think it has something to do with the earth serving as a ground and somehow helping reception.  I hope others know about this and comment.
