Re: problem in using nvda remote


To add to Christopher’s great suggestions, make sure the person on the other end hasn’t turned down their computer volume, thinking it won’t impact speech on your end. Speaking from experience here! 😊

There are a few things I'd do...


Could you go into NVDA's Tools menu, and under Remote, make sure that 'Mute Remote' is not checked in that submenu?

Assuming this is unchecked, could you try NVDA+S on the remote machine to make sure the 'speech mode' is turned on, on 'talk' rather than 'off'?

If all this doesn't solve the issue, the only thing I know you can do is, if possible, restart NVDA and the machine remotely and it should come back up again as expected. If you had a connection issue, then it would have meant that the remote server you're using and/or the computer being controlled was off, or NVDA on that machine was off, but this probably isn't the case here.


Hopefully this helps!


Kind regards,
