Re: nvda remote unofficial servers


Well from the post I read on twitter depending how far you are from the primary server, there is a delay of some note.
Also if it ever died we wouldn't have any remote access as such unless you did it locally.
Pluss you were supposed to make your own servers.
From what I know from the site, all servers are using an unofficial remote server mod of nvda remote, running on ubuntu linux through vertual units.

Hi Shaun,
Does using local NVDA Remote servers help in any way, i.e. by
increasing the speed of relaying commands or something, or what is the
practical effect of having servers dedicated to countries?
Just curious...

Thank you for that site. I had heard of it before, but I just hadn't
visited it. It's an invaluable resource. Thank you.

Hi Ben

The user manual for nvda remote can be found under the help section for
the add on in the nvda add on manager.

If you are interested, a while back I did a audio and also a written
tutorial on using it. It can be found on the nvda audio tutorials page
When you get there jump down by headings to the section that refers to
NVDA remote.
It starts below this heading called How to provide assistance to another
NVDA user (using the NVDA Remote Support add-on)

It should be easy enough to follow. Again it is in both written and you
can listen to a audio version.

hope this helps.
