Re: Issues with NVDA and 1703, inside VM ware fusion

Felix G.
 

Hello again, I saw it in the setup of VMware Workstation 12 when upgrading, so I assumed a reinstall isn't necessary. However, it might in fact not be present in Fusion, in which case I must apologize for putting you on the wrong track.
Kind regards,
Felix

Hello Jessica and list,
I recall that during the installation of VMware there is a check box called "enhanced keyboard driver" or very similar. Can't check the exact wording right now as I'm away from all machines but my iPhone. It will require a restart but might solve your problem, if my intuition is correct.
Good luck,

Hi,
 
I’m using vM ware fusion, as a free trial, and I can’t press “insert+ N” for the NVDA menu.
Ive made other key combinations, but none of them work.
Also, on occasion, other keys, like “alt tab” won’t work.
 
How can I fix this?
 
I’ve updated my installation media, just in case.
 
Is telling the computer to boot from installation media accessible?
 
Thanks,
Jessica


Re: this NVDA error is driving me nuts!

 

What operating system and version of NVDA are you using, and that's for starters.  The web addresses that are giving the problems wouldn't hurt, either.

You've not provided enough information for an error like this to give guidance with any confidence.

this NVDA error is driving me nuts!

ken lawrence
 

Hi NVDA user have tried to get an answer to this and nothing it is driving me crazy.  this morning while still using jaws before switching to NVDA I checked out an item on blind bargains.  I finished all I needed to finish, and now am on NVDA I went to that item on blind bargains again, wanting to review it one more time.  it was a primer on the windows 10 creaters update.  I’m going to call the microsoft answer desk in a moment and have some help with that update.  however when I clicked the link in the blind bargains email to read that item again instead of bringing up chrome to read the document, I see an error message Internet explorer is coming up saying address not valid this is NVDA any time I go to an item on a link in an email, close that down and do something else maybe on a different browser like firefox, then return to that previous thing it won’t bring up chrome which is my default. I get that not valid message and internet explorer is coming up with it.  internet explorer has nothing to do with it it’s not my default and this only happens on NVDA to correct this I have to reboot. why is NVDA not able to bring up my default browser after I have done something else somewhere else.  I’m going to have to either reboot to reread that item or do this blindly.  does anyone know why this happens.  internet explorer is my least used and least favorite browser and should have absolutely nothing to do with it.  and again it is an NVDA error.

Re: How do I access invisible icons in Firefox?

 

Hello
This sounds like a problem with the apps you are installing
and not one for firefox or nvda.

I have several apps installed and all are labelled so that i can find them.
Try installing another app that does the same thing but might be better labelled or if no alternative is available write to the dev and
tell them to label their apps.

Hi,

The name of the other program was QWS. Unless you trash your emails and then empty your trash, you should be able to find the other emails recommending some gear you can get. If you can't for some reason, I'll be watching this thread and can go retrieve it from archives.


Hope this helps,
