Using NVDA with Proxy
Hi. I've had an issue with NVDA for a while where checking for
updates or using Add-on Updater to check for add-on updates
doesn't work. I take paid surveys and use other ways of earning
passive income, so I have an app on my computer that monitors
internet traffic. Keeping it installed on my laptop and Android
phone earns me money. On my phone, it uses a VPN, but it uses a
proxy on my laptop. Certain NVDA or add-on functions that use the
internet don't work with the proxy for some reason, and if I turn
it off in Windows 10's proxy settings, the app just turns it back
on. The app has no settings of its own. Some Windows 10 apps don't
work with it either, but this isn't as big a deal. I've actually
had to temporarily uninstall the app and restart my computer if I
want to check for NVDA or add-on updates, or check for them
manually. Is there any way I can get NVDA to work with the proxy
server the app uses? It would be wonderful if this is possible.
