Re: Using an External Numpad

Gene
 

I wonder if it depends on the numpad.  What brand or brands did you buy and do you know the models?
 
Also, do you have to connect them at any particular time such as before bootup or before running NvDA?

Subject: [nvda] Using an External Numpad

Hello

Well, it has finally happened again: I have obtained a laptop with no numpad.

Since I actually intend for this to be portable (not a desktop replacement, in other words), and I hate the laptop
layout, I thought I could just plug in an external numpad, switch to desktop layout, and poof.

But no joy: the numpad does not get grafted on to the existing keyboard as if the keyboard had a numpad. Even in desktop
mode, the keys are read as home, end, pgup, pgdn, etc..

Is there some known way to cause an external numpad to be perceived by NVDA as a built in numpad for purposes of the
desktop layout?

I have tried remapping with gestures, but that just results in things like the up arrow key becoming unavailable on the
regular keyboard (being mapped to read current line instead of just the numpad 8 I intended).

I suppose I may need to find a way to cause Windows not to replicate the normal keyboard scancodes when the numpad is
used.

You can make it accessible by turning protective mode off if you want to make the program more vulnerable to attack in exchange.  NVDA can read information from the program.  But I don't know if the program is accessible enough as such even after you get it to read.  I haven't kept up with new versions for a good while.
 
What version of Windows are you using?

Please advise a good antivirus for Windows with an accessible interface for screenreaders.

Re: Please your advice with an extended Winamp

Gene
 

Try an earlier version of NVDA running as a portable version.  I suspect the add-on isn't compatible with that version of NVDA.  I don't know what the last compatible version is, but go back maybe one or two versions and see what happens. 
 
I'm not sure if there is a page to download old versions of Winamp but as far as I know, there is a way to do so even if they aren't publicly shown on the NVDA site.  Others may know how it is done.

Hello group,

I have installed Winamp 566 and also I have installed to Nvda 2019. 2.1
an Extended Winamp.

It seems to me, that this Nvda addon doesn't work.

When I am listening a music in Winamp, and press the key F6 or F7 or F8
fo volume, nothing is happening.

Yes, it has expanded beyond strict anti-virus into a full-featured security suite.  I believe there are even some measures against ransomware, too.  That being said, I keep a separate antimalware scanner on my computers "just in case" as they do a better job with that class of infection, just like adware removers do with adware, than any general purpose security suite does.

I haven't had an infection of any sort for, literally, at least 2 decades now, but am forearmed just in case.

For those who want to review third-party antivirus testing lab results, which always include Windows Defender/Windows Security in their tests, see the most recent plus the last several years of historical test results from:

Amen to that. If we have to pay for a Microsoft account or sign up for one when we upgrade to ten. Why not use the anti virus that is built in?  That’s how it should be! Then nobody has to fork out money just for an anti virus program.  I’ll use what’s here on this system.

Dear friends, thank you all for the answers!
Yes, I use Windows 10 and out of habit from the old days, I installed third-party antivirus software.
But judging by your answers, now we can completely trust our security to Microsoft products.
It seems that this is really the best solution for us today.
Thanks again to everyone!
Good luck to everyone and congratulations on the upcoming holidays!

A third for Windows Defender/Windows Security if you are using Windows 8.1 or 10.

If you're still on Windows 7, now is the time to upgrade to Windows 10, as it's barely over 1 month until it falls out of support.

Re: Using an External Numpad

Luke Davis
 

Can you tell me the brands and maybe even model numbers?

From the research I've been doing in the last couple hours, it seems to be that most external numpads just send the keyboard version of the number-row scancodes, not the numpad version. Therefore Windows has no way of knowing that there is a separate keyboard involved.

Some of the really expensive stuff, like Leopold brand (but not all of them) appear to send the correct sequences, but most of the cheap stuff apparently doesn't, or it's a crap shoot at any rate. But, I'm not paying over $100 for a number pad.
