Re: NVDA, read current line and read all

Walter Ramage
 

Hi.  I am using desktop layout and the numpad lock is off.  Things are looking a little better since I've had help from this list.  It has confirmed things I suspected and informed me of things I was unaware of.

 

One thing I'm not sure of is reading by word.  In Jaws insert/right arrow will read forward word by word and insert/left arrow will read word by word backwards.  just pressing left arrow will move forward character by character and left arrow the same but backwards.

 

In NVDA I can move forward or back character by character by pressing the left or right arrows but I can't read word by word by pressing insert/left or right arrow.  I'm not sure if NNVDA does this.  I've pressed insert/right arrow or left arrow but nothing is spoken.  Is this feature absent from NVDA?  If NVDA does have this feature then where do I go to find it.  I don't want to spend a long frustrating period of time looking for a feature that doesn't exist.  With thanks.  Walter.

Hi Walter,

 

There are a couple of options for keystrokes depending on how you have NVDA setup.  So first:

 

- You can have INSERT (either the numpad 0 or the extended insert) or CAPS LOCK (or all three) set as your NVDA modifier key.  Note if you use the numpad insert, you need to have numlock OFF for it to work.

 

- You can use "Desktop keyboard layout" or "Laptop keyboard layout".  Desktop layout assumes you have a number pad which can be used for NVDA commands.  Laptop keyboard layout reassigns those commands to other keys and so ends up remapping quite a lot of keystrokes.

 

So, to read the current line is NVDA+up arrow in desktop layout, or NVDA+L in laptop layout.

 

To read from the current point onwards in NVDA+down arrow in desktop layout or NVDA+A in laptop layout.

 

As previously noted, the arrows in this case are the dedicated arrow keys (often found in set out in an upside down T shape) not the number pad.

 

Also another thing you will likely be interested in, is the guide to switching from Jaws to NVDA, which you can find here: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda-community/wiki/SwitchingFromJawsToNVDA

 

Kind regards

 

Quentin.

You can’t use insert numpad down arrow.  NVDA reserves the numpad for screen review.  Use insert with the main keyboard down arrow. 

 

I’m assuming you are using the default desktop layout.  If you changed it, let us know.

 

Also, you can have the caps lock function as an NVDA key.  If you do, you will have insert and caps lock function as NVDA keys if you are using the desktop layout.  I don’t use the laptop layout and I’m not sure.

 

But I find it much mpore pleasant to use caps lock down arrow for read to end.  If you want to know how to make the caps lock key an NVDA key, let us know.

Hi folks.  I've decided to dip my toe in the NVDA world but only a little bit at the moment but before I submerge my big toe I'd like some help with something.

 

In Jaws to read the current line I press insert plus up arrow.  To read all, insert and down arrow.

 

Now I tried the same in NVDA but although insert up arrow read current line, insert down arrow also read current line, it didn't read all.

 

I got more if I scrolled down but NVDA repeated every blank line with the announcement "blank."

 

How can I correct this so insert up arrow reads current line, insert down arrow reads all and every blank line is silent.  Help appreciated, thank you.  Walter.

Re: NVDA, read current line and read all

Hi Ron.  I went to "check for updates" and it said there were none available so I assume I do have the latest version.  When I raised this issue I found the email I was reading would only read current line when I pressed insert/up arrow and the same when I did insert/down arrow.  However when I created a notepad document and wrote a few lines (with blank lines) I found it did read the full thing when I pressed insert/down arrow.  I then found a different email and it read correctly too so I can only conclude the problem I had with the first email was the sender must have done something to cause the issue.  Walter.

Subject: [TechTalk] repairing a Victor reader?

Hi all,

Yesterday I dropped my second generation Victor stream, and evidently it fell on the front where the buttons are because the very top of it popped up just a bit. It still works although the bookmark button and the button I press to go between the online and offline folders are more imbedded and don't stick up as much because of the way the top popped up, does anybody know if that top may be able to just be pressed down and it'll pop back into place? This is an older machine so the warranty has long since lapsed on it, and since it still works I don't want to put out the money for a new one. If the portion of the top that's now raised a bit can be snapped back down that would be helpful though, I don't want to try it myself without knowing if that might work for fear that I might make things worse.

Thanks.

Re: help batch converting folders in goldwave

Steven Johnson
 

Hi Keith.  I’m a huge GoldWave fan and a long time user.  Here’s a quick and effective way that I get GoldWave to add the folder that I want to batch process.  I use Windows 10 Pro 64 bit and JAWS 2019 with GoldWave 6.51.  I either use This PC or Explorer to navigate to my 0 - files to convert folder and then hit enter to get into that folder.  I then hit alt D to get to my address bar which shows the full path to the 0 - files to convert folder.  I select all with control A, do control C to copy the path to clipboard, and then alt F4 out of that.  Start GoldWave, go into batch, then hit add folder.  You will be placed in an edit box that may show the name of the last folder that you processed.  Delete everything there, and then hit control V to paste the path of the 0 - files to convert folder.  Make sure that process subfolders is checked, and tab to okay and hit enter.  You should be good to go.  Don’t forget to set your destination folder, and your file attributes.

Batch converting with Goldwave

I am attempting to batch convert files inside a folder within the my documents folder. When I hit the batch convert folder button it opens a window with choices.

I check the box that says include all sub folders and then tab down to browse and hit enter on that

 

I am then placed in a tree view of directories.

The folder I wish to convert files in is named 0 - files to convert

the following selection of directories are available to me in the window:

c:

documents and settings

keith steinbach

.casche

desktop

documents

favorites

my documents

start menu

tap in radio

tracing

windows

the folder which I wish to convert files in, the 0 - files to convert folder is not listed.

I am wondering why?

 

 

 

 

The directions that smiling (I believe that was the list member's name) do not work for some reason.

At this rate, I have to use the convert files option and enter the folder and select the files I wish to convert and then start the conversion.

Any other suggestions?

I cannot even get a display of any of the folders within the my documents folder.

Thanks and I apologize in advance for being a newb or really thick in the head.

Mr. Johnson, if your HIMS toy is STILL UNDER WARRANTY, you'll be golden! If
not, give it a try anyway and good luck.

Please note that HIMS Tech Support IS NOT STELLAR! In that regard I wonder
which one is in the ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY TOY industry since the demise of GW
Micro? All the same, send them E-mail, try to get an RMA if needed, then
CROSS YOUR FINGERS as it may take several weeks to get your toy back with
the hope that the issue you're having will be fixed straight up.

Lastly, keep in mind that, Selvas Healthcare, the parent of HIMS, Inc., is
based in Seoul, South Korea; as such, the repair of your toy may need to be
done in Seoul thus extending even further the length of time it will take to
get it back. Again, give it a try, your mileage may vary such that
everything will just pan out as expected! Good luck and all the very best.

Hi all,

Yesterday I dropped my second generation Victor stream, and evidently it fell on the front where the buttons are because the very top of it popped up just a bit. It still works although the bookmark button and the button I press to go between the online and offline folders are more imbedded and don't stick up as much because of the way the top popped up, does anybody know if that top may be able to just be pressed down and it'll pop back into place? This is an older machine so the warranty has long since lapsed on it, and since it still works I don't want to put out the money for a new one. If the portion of the top that's now raised a bit can be snapped back down that would be helpful though, I don't want to try it myself without knowing if that might work for fear that I might make things worse.

Thanks.

Troy
