Hi Georges,

Did you ever use the Google Search with the keywords "nvda" and "add-ons"?

That presumably only means they are http not https. Does this really affect such things as add ons, or are the browsers being shall we say a little paranoid again?

Hi


It does not look like the cobra screen reader is realy going any more
unless there is a updated website.


the following link is about it at
http://www.bayareadigital.us/products/baum/cobra.html

I would be really surprised if they brought down the price for jaws the
price goes up with a exchange rate for others.



I think they charge like 50 nzd a month  like you are renting it and it
goes onto your disibility allowance and if it is all used up out of your
pocket.

When you say that the display is being shown as connected via USB, are you sure it is actually connected to the VM. What virtualization software are you running? Most virtualization software will have a menu where various removable devices are shown as connected to guest or host. Make sure your Focus is connected to guest.

When you say that the display is being shown as connected via USB, are you sure it is actually connected to the VM. What virtualization software are you running? Most virtualization software will have a menu where various removable devices are shown as connected to guest or host. Make sure your Focus is connected to guest.


Having trouble locating Remote add-on 2.2? Add-on Updater comes to the rescue

 

Hi all,

 

Yes, the subject line says it all: Add-on Updater September 28th build (proof of concept) will now check for Remote Support add-on releases! This was requested by at least one user, and to provide Remote add-on 2.2 to more people quickly.

 

After installing Add-on Updater September 28th build, check for add-on updates once more (of course, restart NVDA after installing Add-on Updater). If you happen to be using Remote add-on releases earlier than 2.2, you’ll be prompted to update.

Cheers,

Joseph

Thanks Sky so much for this great detail of the Evilution of screen
reader. Technology change like crazy now days.
I still remembered the first screen reader that I learned to navigate the
Windows desktop with.
I was an user of the NVDA screen reader until 2011. In 2011 I got accepted
to a school for the Blind in China. In the School for the blind they teach
their students how to use Sunshine. Sunshine is another screen reader
developed by the Chinese programmer. I've been a Sunshine screen reader user
for 3 years until 2014.
I moved to United States in May of 2014. I did not learn any screen reader
at that time.
In 2015 I start to learn how to use Window-eyes for office. I've been a
Window-eyes for Office user for 1 years until 2016.
In Early of 2016 I heard about Jaws for Windows Students addition. I start
using Jaws in October of 2016.
In March of 2017 revisited the NVDA Screen Reader.
NVDA Screen reader is a very good screen reader Unlike the commercial
screen reader NVDA is developed by volunteers mostly.

Thanks Mic and Jamie for this great screen reader.
Best Regards

Sunshine is a screen reader that's mainly used in China.
It's Windows based and some time the screen reader can get very buggy.
It does support Chinese browser Baidu all righten
Sunshine won't support Windows7.
Sunshine is a screen reader that is Chinese based screen reader


NVDA and Focus Blue 5th

E.T.
 

I really need to resolve this. Running latest NVDA latest on Windows 7 VM.

I've installed the Freedom Scientific USB driver and have confirmed its installed by going into Device Manager with the display connected to USB. The braille display shows its connected to USB. But NVDA is NOT seeing this display. It should, the Focus Blue 40 5th IS a supported braille display. What in blazes am I missing?!?
