orbit reader20 now on sale

Josh Kennedy <joshknnd1982@...>
 

Hi

Just to let you all know, the orbit reader20 low cost $449 braille display is now on sale. It works very good with NVDA. It is liquid and dust resistant, dots do not give when pressed, feels like braille on elevator doors or ATM machines, very rugged and durable meant for use in extreme hostile environments. You can buy it from

Adding custom entries to insert symbols dialogue?

Jacob Kruger
 

Bit of a silly question, but, while I have the insert symbols add-on showing up in my add-ons manager, I can't find anything like it's data files under either %appData%, or under program files?

Asking since would have assumed that it might allow me to add an entry to the list of symbols on offer?

Please explain this info I got about NVDA!

David Moore
 

Hi all,

I was talking to a friend on Facebook. She is a programmer. This went over my head. We were talking about python and NVDA. I will put right below what she said, so you can comment on it, because this is so over my head! She really wants to get involved with the NVDA project.

Here is what she said.

I am a fan of Python as a primary language for a system.  Something like NVDA should have a C++ core with language-of-choice wrappers.  Python is having trouble evolving without completely changing the language, which leaves the risk of building a future of dead, legacy libraries quite high.  It reminds me of what happened to FORTRAN.  Moreover, Python is joy well suited to continually running, closed loops services like NVDA would be.

that said, upgrading to Python 3 is a helpful step that MUST be done.  It is unfortunate that Python was the initial language of choice because this will have to be done again in the coming years.  By the time all is said and done, Python will end up looking looking like "JavaScript without curly braces", which implies the question, "why not have just adopted JavaScriptNode.js in the first place?"

Please explain all of this, and I hope it makes sense to you what she is saying.

She is really interested in NVDA being a programmer herself.

Re: How to not start NVDA at login?

Chris
 

If nvda runs on the login screen then you can bring up the nvda menu and change the way nvda starts or in your case not at all to get into windows

After the required changes save the settings and restart, then you should be good to go

Subject: [nvda] How to not start NVDA at login?

 

Hi all,

I somehow broke my NVDA by writing a buggy addon and now NVDA doesn’t work. Moreover it somehow prevents the other screenreaders (jaws, narrator) from running. To make things even worse, the keyboard doesn’t seem to be working - otherwise I would’ve opened a command line terminal and typed up the command to erase the file in appdata\roaming\NVDA\globalPlugins. Insert+Q doesn’t work either.

 

So my question is: Is there a way to not start NVDA at login time? Or at least make it not load the addons?

 

NVDA seems to be working fine at the login screen where I need to enter the password, but that is probably because it doesn’t load addons at this time. Once I log in, I hear the four tones NVDA start sound and right after that my keyboard is pretty much dead. I know it’s my fault, I wrote some buggy addon code, but now I really want to revive my computer.

 

Thank you

Tony

 

 

 

 


RES: [nvda] In-Process 1st February 2018

Alexandre Alves Toco
 

Hello!

Regarding to visual studio, does it apply to vs 2017 comunity edition?

I just installed it and fork a copy of nvda. But it seams to freeze when I start to navigate in code.

Maybe I need some shortcuts to perform the most common tasks in vs.

 

Thanks

You should be able to go into save mode, with sighted help.  You can then uninstall NVDA or, perhaps, someone can tell us how to remove the add on files.

Well if you have a portable nvda on you or can get one and maybe a
sightling to right click nvda icon for you and quit it or end it in task
manager then you can use that and then well run a system restore, or
just clear the mangled file that may work.

Thats probably the only thing I can suggest.

I have had this happen myself with some software I have always had this
happen with some users I have done work for.

I luckily had the system backed up and I was able to reformat and make
the issue go away.

I never really looked into fixing this when it happened to me once
before as after a good reformat it never came back but maybe I was lucky.

Testing with a Freedom Scientific (now VFO) Focus 40 Blue braille display, NVDA 2017.4 and the latest Windows 10 1709 release, if I switch to the Windows 10 lock screen and then allow the host computer and the braille display to suspend, the display is not detected after resuming from suspend. The only solution I found was to restart NVDA, after which the display was again detected.

 

Can anyone else reproduce this issue?

 

I can test with a Baum display as well, but I haven’t done so yet.

If it was, then that would be very uncommon.  It may be that, just having been announced, a lot of people, far more than usual, tried to download the file at the same time.  But I'm skeptical because we heard no reports from others and if there were such an issue, we would expect to see people talking about how slow the download is or that they couldn't do so.  Therefore, I'm very skeptical.
