101  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2013 / Re: Easy Screencast Recorder - NANY 2013 Entry on: December 07, 2013, 10:49:06 PM
Has anyone succeeded in capturing audio while running ESR in a VirtualBox guest OS?

I've tried a few set ups without much success (host OS W7 Pro, host OS Arch Linux, guest OS XP Pro, guest OS W7 Pro).  Video gets captured FWIW.  After noticing no audio during playback I tried tweaking the audio settings in ESR (just chose non-blank values) and re-recorded but seemingly still no audio.

Would it help at all to post specific settings?

No I haven't, thanks for the suggestion smiley

Any favorite options for multilingual input (vague I know) on Android?

Just found the following page and am trying out Adaptxt -- have used Hacker's Keyboard too but it doesn't happen to support one language all that well I have an interest in:

Ah, so may be dogs can hear what's going on...yet another way they can help us!

A bit of a digression...

I got to thinking whether remastering the LMDE iso with the latest update applied might be worth considering.

Has any one tried this?



I've come across a few options for remastering, but haven't tried any of them:

refracta has some relevant-looking tools
remastersys fork

How does using the following seem?

Is that a historical reference?  Perhaps it's actually doable as may be it's doubtful humans can produce the necessary sounds with their in-born equipment smiley

For those who use such things...

Mycroft has a search engine plugin / provider for it.

Looks neat!  Thanks for sharing smiley

Could we practice injecting into the network by voicce? Wink

Nice find.

With a higher bandwidth, it might be interesting to use as an alternative network smiley

Thanks for the change!

If that's the only difference, would you still like testing?
113  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 02, 2013, 10:45:57 PM
Ah I think I see what's going on -- somehow I was expecting the portable version to be configured to look for settings and friends in the directory containing the exe.  It doesn't by default I guess.

I guess I misunderstood.  Sorry about that.
114  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 02, 2013, 10:43:13 PM
I tried again (Windows 7 Pro), i.e. non-overwriting installation of portable version -- when I look at the options dialog I see that my custom hotkeys are already set.  I didn't expect this for a portable set up.  Is that the intended behavior?
115  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 02, 2013, 10:40:53 PM
To clarify, I've only tested portable versions.

What I thought I saw was (under Windows 7 Pro), a new installation of PopUp Wisdom (non-overwriting) already being configured with custom hotkeys.

I'll test again.
116  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 02, 2013, 05:37:23 PM
[Feature] PopUp Wisdom will now create the default UserQuotes.txt file in the proper user configuration directory (instead of installation directory) on WinVista/7/8.

Does this happen for the portable version too?  I failed to determine whether it does or not (my preference being that it doesn't happen.)

The newest version seemed to read my old settings (at least the hotkey settings) even though I thought I didn't do an overwriting installation.  May be I messed up?

As far as focus-stealing is concerned, haven't seen it happen for both VirtualBox guest OS installations of XP Pro and 7 Pro.

When the machine in question is broken or I don't trust its content, booting from ISO seems like a better option -- also when it's someone else's PC...
118  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 02, 2013, 05:03:12 AM
Let me know if it works.

Both VirtualBox guest OS tests, but working better (no stolen focus detected so far) for both Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro thumbs up

If I were running a server I'd be using Debian as well -- for non-server-related development, I've been finding Arch to be easier from the perspective of creating, installing, and uninstalling software cleanly.

I tend to use Mint via booting one of its isos, so it'd have been nicer not to have to apply an update after booting from the LMDE iso.
120  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / *NIX; tesseract OCR experiences on: December 01, 2013, 10:07:56 PM
Recently I've been trying out the tesseract OCR option (both via gimagereader and via the command line) with mixed (but tolerably good IMHO) results at least for English text.

In my usage, I notice occasional recognition results such as:


It seems to me that for some of these cases, there is little point in accepting the results as-is (e.g. "vv" seems like it's seldom used).  I'm about to go through a page with a description of tesseract configuration parameters in hope of turning up something applicable -- but anyone have any relevant tesseract experience to share?



I'm using tesseract 3.02.02.
121  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 01, 2013, 09:07:04 PM
The "update" I was referring to was the LMDE update pack -- do you do additional "from-Debian" updates as well?



Sorry I wasn't clear in my original post -- I was referring to the process of installing from scratch.
122  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 01, 2013, 08:46:59 PM
Ah, thanks for the explanation -- I guess that means one starts off with an ISO and then performs at least one update.
123  DonationCoder.com Software / PopUp Wisdom / Re: PopUp Wisdom Love on: December 01, 2013, 08:37:48 PM
If we uncheck that option to set focus, then exit program.
Then restart program, with it appearing in tray.

Then open up notepad, and give it focus.

Now show a popup quote.  Does popup wisdom steal focus?

No (IMHO this is similar to what I described before), and then if I click the OK button to dismiss the quote, Notepad ends up with focus (I see a flickering of it).  Now if I invoke the hotkey to show a quote, focus is stolen by the quote dialog.

FWIW, I did follow your steps smiley



Reproduced similar results using Windows 7 Pro (as guest OS of VirtualBox).

However, a subsequent hotkey invocation leads to focus being stolen here.

does this problem only occur when triggering via hotkey (as opposed to timer?)

It happens with both (I added a comment to the post above too).

The key here to observing focus not being stolen seems to be to get the Options dialog up first (without any quote showing), clicking on the "OK" button and then either waiting for a quote to appear or using the hotkey.  After one quote dialog appears, subsequent appearances of quote dialogs appear to steal focus consistently (until the options dialog box is brought up with a quote dialog showing and then the "OK" button being clicked.)



FWIW, the testing is being done on a system where PopupWisdom had never been installed before.

Nice!



Anyone know if there will be any more work on the Debian-based flavor?
