Molly,
In order to use this add-on you'll need to assign any keystroke to make it work.
If you want to play with it but have difficulties setting it up please let me know and I'll try my best to help you out 😊

A screen curtain is something designed in a way that whenever you active it, your screen will become inaccessible to the curious eyes that may want... spy on you.
Yes, it's possible. Actually, using an add-on which is planned to be part of NVDA itself soon.
It's called Screen Curtain. You can easily find it at the NVDA add-ons webpage.

Using JAWS, don't quote me on this, but I guess it has its self way of doing the task without any third-part application.

Hello again.
I've been able to run the com fix registration tool as suggested by Quentin.
The experience with NVDA since I did the run, has been new and
wonderful. The screen reader no longer reads unknown, and web
browsers are now working very well.
The firefox browser which before now was not responsive, is now
working very well.
I can't thank you all on this list enough for sharing your experiences
and information on using the scrreen reader.
Added to that I wish to thank the developers of the program, and those
supporting it's development.
It's constant update has improved it over time.
Thanks and cheers.
Ibrahim.

Brian, My GBRam is a low grid. It is just 2GB. But even with that I
don't have this problem with JAWS. But as I said yesterday, chrome
appears to be reasonably fine with the screen reader, although firefox
and internet explorer are almost unusable.
I am thinking of increasing my GB ram with an SDCard.

Subject: [nvda] Problems With NVDA

Hello:
I am having problems with my NVDA screen reader.
The screen reader is just too slow when I am browsing the internet.
When I am doing some other work like word processing or reading documents
off line, it is not slow.
This problem has nothing to do with the websites, as I don't have this
slow

problems online with JAWS. I use a demo copy of JAWS.
Secondly, when I visit a website, or even some times when I launch a web
browser like internet explorer or firefox, I hear "internet explorer
unknown" or "firefox unknown" and the screen goes quiet, and when I press
the arrow down key, that is what I keep hearing. Some times, when I am on
a

site, or trying to open a site, the screen reader crashes, and disables
the

computer itself. I just have to shut it down, and then restart it all
over

again.
Does anyone understand the problem I am having with my NVDA screen
reader?
I use windows7 32 bit on a laptop.
I have the latest update of the screen reader.
Hope to read a helpful response.
I am Ibrahim.

adding a braille display serial to usb blu tooth etc to nvda

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi guys


I see the question come up from time to time on the list.


I want to put a small section on my website that could point some one in the right direction of what to do.


This would be for the above mentioned ways.I noticed some of the drivers are in nvda where some others have to download them from FS?



Would there be a user or 2 say one with blu tooth and usb connected braille display devices if you could write up the steps to hook up that device to nvda.


If you do not want your name mentioned by who wrote it I will leave it out.


I am also looking at it from a new user like me to get one going and where to look.


I will also point towards the user manual and which section it is in there to add a braille display.


I can also link if you do a audio version.

some pepeople like audio and others written.


For a example I have a old human ware braille note that i got given. and would say some thing like.


to make your humanware braille note work with nvda you need to do the following.


You will need to Buy a serial to usb cable which includes the driver CD which will have drivers for it up to windows 10.

Install the software onto your computer and Plug in your power adaptor to a power point and then hook up your serial end of the cable to your human ware braille note and plug in the other end which is USB into your computer then turn on your device.

You will then need to go into the settings of your device and set it to terminal for screen reader mode and set your port.


Next while NVDA is running go into the preferences section of NVDA by pressing the nvda key + letter N. Arrow to the settings section of nvda then press the enter key. You will be given a list of different sections in NVDA next arrow down to the  braille section then tab to the change button in that section. Use the space bar to open it. Arrow to the human ware braille note driver then tab to the port it uses. Change it to Port: Serial: Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM3) then tab to the ok button then press the enter key. NVDA will go back to the braille section and you will notice now it can be used.You can then tab through this section and make changes. make sure you apply your settings then tab to the ok button then press the enter key.


you can use the ctrl key + nvda key + the letter C to save your changes.


The above is just a example which i might use. then it will just be a matter of which page to put them on.


You can email me off list if you would like to do it as in a tutorial to share with others.
