Hello,

 

 

I am a musician and composer interested in purchasing the Braille Music

Editor 2 (BME2) software. I heard there is an NVDA add-on and downloaded

the pre-release version, but it does not seem to work. Have I downloaded

the wrong thing? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hello, a new feature has been requested for this add-on: a button to
copy the URL of the current feed, useful to share it:

https://github.com/nvdaes/readFeeds/issues/11

It's included in a new version for testing:

https://github.com/nvdaes/readFeeds/releases/download/10.12-dev/readFeeds-10.12-dev.nvda-addon

Cheers

Hello. Just an alert. Here, when installing version 10.11-DEV on top of
10.8-dev, I received an error and NVDA stopped working, giving a fatal
error after each startup. The solution was for me to remove the folder
%AppData%\Roaming\nvda\addonsreadFeeds\ in and reinstall the readfeeds.
So, it may be best to remove ancient versions of add-on before a new
installation. Every case, if someone has a similar problem, already know
how to solve the fatal NVDA error. No more, this new version was very
good, working smoothly and reading all descriptions in all feeds that I
usually sign. My eternal gratitude to all who dedicate your time and
knowledge in the development and maintenance of add-ons to the community
of our NVDA ... Thank you.

Re: Need help on making add-on translatable

Sean
 

Hi ,

I want to help you.
Can you send the file you want to translate? This helps us find out what error is with the file.

1. You have to install python3, scons.
2. Next you need to copy gettex's .exe files to the root folder of your project.
3. Open CMD and type "scons pot".


This will create a new template from updated codes.

however none of these might happen.
We cannot say anything completely appropriate without seeing your folder structure, components and codes you have installed.

If you can reach the author of the addon, you can request a new template from him or her . This is a technical topic. I don't think it's your job to create a template.

Looking for how to improve this I have come to an error in IAccessible.labeledBy:

This was already described in issue # 7080 but has not been fixed yet. Is anyone working on it?

I think that the error comes from

IAccessibleHandler.accNavigate(self.IAccessibleObject,self.IAccessibleChildID,IAccessibleHandler.NAVRELATION_LABELLED_BY)

always returns None because (from what I have been able to prove)

self.IAccessibleObject.accNavigate

never returns anything whatever the address, thus res in IAccessibleHandler.py line 456

    res=pacc.accNavigate(direction,childID)

is always None and then

    if not res:

And I have come this far, I am not able to go further. I don't know what .IAccessibleObject.accNavigate does. Does direction refer to the order of the children?

Re: Need help on making add-on translatable

 

Hi Alberto
For things I know about Python, no problem if we add a space before the open bracket, and I usually do that for easily navigate, and now I find out the problem. That because I didn't know that I must include path to my add-on file so now the problem is solved. However, title of addon's still in English, although it has a translatable string, and I translated it into Vietnamese. If you know why, please help me.
Thank so much for your answer

Re: Is the Braille with keyboard PC input add-on still being supported #addonrequest

Noelia Ruiz
 

Hi again, as aside, with the add-on installed, we can go to NVDA's
menu, Input gestures dialog, and enable the add-on to press space plus
the corresponding dot to add emulated gestures, for example, we can
assign the command to emulate down arrow, which can be found in the
input gestures dialog, to space + dot 4 pressing the keystroke from
our standard keyboard after enabling PC keyboard input by pressing
NVDA+0.
Please don't esitate to ask if you need more help to add these
commands yourself in NVDA, in addition of the option to create an
issue to request features like this to be included in the add-on.
Cheers

Hello, the add-on is supporte, originally created by Jamie (James
Teh), from NV Access, and currently maintained by me.
As mentioned, stable version is (compatible with NVDA 2019.3 or later).
About keyboards, I think it deppends on the manufacturer. Probably the
best option is to use a NKRO keyboard, which should allow to press a
wide range of key combinations.
If you want to report any feedback or request features for this
add-on, to facilitate track changes, please create (or comment) a new

https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/pcKeyboardBrailleInput.en.html

Good morning, I'm new to the group and just noticed this Braille input
with
keyboard PC add-on.
The release notes say that it's compatible with NVDA 2019.2, but I was
wondering if it's compatible with the latest version of the NVDA as well,
and is it still under development.
The reason I ask is because I was wondering if  certain  features could
be
added to it to make it more like a braille display, so  that, for
example,
pressing space with dots one and four will navigate by sentence, pressing
space withdots 2 and 5 will move by word, and space with dots three and
six
by character.
Also, I understand it doesn't work on all keyboards particularly laptop
keyboards, as some manufacturers don't allow multiple keys to be pressed
at
once, did anyone know if there is a specific keyboard configuration that
is
not supported, or is it at the whim of the individual manufacturer?

Re: Braille display usage question.

Pawel Urbanski
 

Hi Friends,
I do agree thatspeech is much faster, but when coding or dealing with
maths Braille is very handy if not life-saving...
As for speech, some of you know that I have this personal project,
namely the VS Code add-on.
I'm currently fixing a bug here and there and splitting the code for
the future. One of my ideas currently in progress is a speech
dictionary and complex symbols to make code reading more naturally
sounding and faster if possible. The latter obviously applies to
speech...
What do you think about it? (I will try to put something for testing
on Github in a few days.)

Best,
Pawel

How many of you owns and is using a Braille display when coding?
It is definitely my personal preference or oppinion, but I think that
coding without a Braille display can quickly become very very
