Re: NVDA and Remote Desktop

It's in all flavours in one form or another. I just managed to remotely connect to an old XP laptop using my Windows 10 home machine. The sound isn't very good but it's usable. Not as good as connecting via the NVDA remote add-on though.

Cheers
Chris

Well is this in all flavours of windows in use at the moment or just 10.
Last time I tried it it failed on 7, but somebody else said it was very laggy.

Hi Brian,
Windows Remote Desktop connection works great with NVDA. It just needs a
NVDA copy installed on the remote computer. I log into the remote system via
remote desktop, hit control-alt-n and then I can manage the remote computer.
Windows remote desktop sends the sound back to me, since windows remote
desktop deals with sound redirection as well.
You can switch between the remote desktop and your own desktop by pressing
control-alt-pause and also the clipboard is being transferred between local
and remote computer.

Cheers,
Ralf

I'm not really sure what you are trying to achieve. I was under the
impression that remote desktop cannot be used with screenreaders as the
accessibility informatio is not sent down the line, just the graphics of the
other computers screen, which is why nvda remote add on was designed.

Hi:

I have a copy of NVDA here on my home computer and a copy of NVDA on
my office computer.

If I access my office computer from my PC through Remote Desktop, the
copy of NVDA on my Office computer reads as I expect it to, but when I
press insert-t to here the title of the windo, or when I press
insert-q to shut down the copy of NVDA on my office computer, the the
NVDA on my home compyuter responds, for instance, when I am in
Microsoft Word on my office computer, and I press insert-t, my home
computer responds by reading the title of the window where my home
computer has focus.
What can I do to stop this behaviour and make the NVDA on myy home
computer relinquish control of my keyboard?
