I believe the setting is in the settings for the individual synthesizer you are using and not NVDA.  What synthesizer are you using?

Re: Is there a way to set NVDA 2019.2-RC1 to exit focus mode in Skype?

Hi


All I do is just change it to browse mode if it doesn't go in straight away, so then I can jump around it like a web page.

Re: bug: NVDA causes all audio to play through both headphones and the pc speakers

Hi Quentin,

I don't unplug or plug the headphones for this to happen. For some reason, audio begins playing through both devices. But restarting NVDA multiple times, or a single time causes audio to get routed correctly again.

bug: NVDA causes all audio to play through both headphones and the pc speakers

Hi all,

I am experiencing an odd issue. Frequently when using NVDA, all audio plays through both headphones and speakers. I know this is caused by NVDA, as restarting it usually resolves the problem. Even if it doesn't resolve, subsequent NVDA restarts do solve it.

I am running alpha  17808,4a78085

Does anyone know a solution?


Re: NVDA modifier key and Words+ EZ Keys

Tyler Spivey
 

Interestingly enough, that autohotkey script is working here under Windows 10. For some reason it doesn't work for you, so I came up with something else.

I wrote an addon that makes NVDA think sticky keys is enabled, which triggers the code that gives you a sticky modifier key, and only affects NVDA.

Download this addon and install it. Once done, whatever keys you have checked as modifiers in keyboard settings will stick for one press.
You should then be able to tell EZ Keys to press caps lock or insert, then press t to read the window title. NVDA should beep when you press the modifier.

Re: NVDA modifier key and Words+ EZ Keys

Gabbert, Darren <gabbertd@...>
 

This is getting interesting. Under emulated system keyboard keys, I assigned Alt-0 to “virtually toggles the NVDA key.” And when I use EZ KEYS to do Alt-0, it speaks “NVDA pressed,” and triggering Alt-0 again will speak “NVDA released.” The sad part is that pressing N or other letter with NVDA pressed, doesn’t perform the action.


Feels like were getting somewhere...

Darren,

            I don't know if it will work, with the software layers involved, but it's worth taking a look at the Input Gestures settings of NVDA (NVDA Key+N,P,N) then entering just emu in the Filter by edit box.  This will return you the list for Emulated System Keyboard Keys that can be used with NVDA when using braille (or at least it looks like it's limited to braille).    If one of the emulations is what you're looking for, then once it's selected you'd need to gain focus on the Add button and add the shortcut sequence.

            When you have multiple layers capturing keyboard input, it depends on which piece of assistive technology software gets first dibs, second dibs, etc., after the operating system takes a pass on processing that input.  There is a hierarchy and sometimes it's tricky to determine.

Luke! I can partly confirm this! I find with Google chrome NVDA does better then IE! I have never tried edge using NVDA But I’ve used IE with it!  Mind you I used Chrome on this new system when my tutor installed it here.  It responded with Chrome then Firefox.  We tried doing my food safe using Firefox. But it did not respond quickly.  Then my tutor installed chrome and to town it went!  I’ve tried Edge with Jaws. Not yet with NVDA!

I find that statement to be utterly contradictory to over a half decade of

Is Windows Sticky keys already in the picture anywhere?   It allows you to hit one key at a time for keyboard shortcuts until the sequence of keys pressed gets recognized by something that's running.  It removes the need for actual holding down of one key when trying to press another (or possibly several others for 3-key or the very rare 4-key shortcuts).

Also, there may be something else you might want to try.  If NVDA is configured to use a key as a modifier, you can get that key to do what it ordinarily does by pressing it quickly twice.  So, if you press caps lock twice and you have it set as an NVDA modifier, it wwill turn caps lock on or off each time you press it twice. 

 

If you want to start the scanner with insert, whatever one you use with the scanning program, try pressing it quickly twice.  That will allow you to use the key as an NVDA modifier if you wish, and also use it for whatever it would ordinarily do.

If you want to release a modifier key NVDA uses, you don't have to remap it.  By default, NVDA uses both inserts as modifiers, the main keyboard insert and the numpad insert.  If you open the keyboard settings dialog, control NVDA key k, and tab, you will find checkboxes so you can tell NVDA to use or not to use three modifiers, the caps lock, the numpad insert and the main keyboard insert, called the extended insert.  Check whatever you want used or uncheck whatever you don't using the space bar.  Then activate ok.

Re: NVDA modifier key and Words+ EZ Keys

Yes, I have tried all three. But EZ Keys is only setup for Cntr, Alt, and Shift for modifier keys. So to bring up the main NVDA menu, I tried remapping the Insert key. I can get autohotkeys to do this fairly elegantly, but when I try it with NVDA loaded, it won’t work.

Re: NVDA modifier key and Words+ EZ Keys

If you want to release a modifier key NVDA uses, you don't have to remap it.  By default, NVDA uses both inserts as modifiers, the main keyboard insert and the numpad insert.  If you open the keyboard settings dialog, control NVDA key k, and tab, you will find checkboxes so you can tell NVDA to use or not to use three modifiers, the caps lock, the numpad insert and the main keyboard insert, called the extended insert.  Check whatever you want used or uncheck whatever you don't using the space bar.  Then activate ok.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA modifier key and Words+ EZ Keys

I am a long time single switch scanning user of Word+ EZ Keys. I’m trying to also use NVDA for screen reader capabilities. My problem is using the NVDA modifier key from my scanning software. There is no direct way to “hold down” the Insert or Capslock from EZ Keys. I am trying to use Autohotkeys to simulate holding down the Insert, but the key doesn’t work once I load NVDA.


Does anyone have suggestions for remapping the NVDA modifier key to something like Alt-0 or something?

 

Thanks!
