NVDA with Password

Dave Grossoehme
 

Good Morning:  With the February first version of NVDA you could hear a blank if you went past the beginning of the stars in your password field.  This is the field for when signing into the computer that I'm referring to.  With the new version you hear nothing and it's like you can't go any farther back.  This blank help to know when you are at the beginning of the field.  How does anyone else feel about this?  This word of blank help me know that I'm at the beginning of the field especially if a mistake had been made.  This tells me that I can start again to enter my information.  As it is now with an insiders version of windows 64 bit addition of 2004 it might be different than anyone else.

Hi all,

 

How do I get the screen curtain to work?

 

I can’t see any keyboard commands.


Latest update with a lot of addons not working.

Daniel Hawkins
 

Hello everyone,

I just joined this group. I hope that this question have not been asked yet. But I thought I’d ask. I almost updated my NVDA yesterday. i have noticed that most of my addons will not work with the new update. Most I am not too worried about. But the biggest is the Remote 2.1 which I use all the time work training my consumers. This is the most important addon I will need with the future update. The question is, has anyone heard that will this addon will be updated?

Second, I have a consumer who bought the Eloquense from atguys.com. will th is addon work for him? Ihave not yet looked at his computer to see if there is a update.

Thanks guys!
Daniel Hawkins

Hello,

NVDA math is discussed in chapter 7 of the NVDA users' guide under the NVDA help option. Do you have MathPlayer loaded?

Subject: [nvda] Math Interaction Not Supported

I'm attempting to take a practice math test for school, using portable
Chromium: 75.0.3770.142 (Official Build) (64-bit) Windows 10, NVDA 2019.2.
When I land on the math problem, NVDA says, clickable. I hit space bar or enter on it, NVDA says, math interaction not supported.
What am I missing to be able to interact with this?


Re: nvda 2019.3 vocalizer, and remote support

Edited

I found another problem, I have install driver and all voices but it cannot verify my credential and said my license is invalid. I've found that it can't verify my credential in December and continue to use it until it said that my license is invalid. Now I have updated both NVDA and Vocalizer Expressive driver to the latest version but it doesn't solve the problem. Does anyone know how to fix it?
Thank you


Re: NVDA 2019.2.1 installer

 

Just downgraded, and everything works as before, including Vocalizer and the reading of MathType equations.
Until these issues are fixed (especially the MathType equation reading issue), I think I'm going to stay on the 2019.2.1 release for now.

Re: Dropbox add on update trouble

Patrick ZAJDA
 

Hi Roger,


As the last stable version is not compatible with NVDA 2019.3, you have to ignore this update.

It will be OK when the actual dev version will be stable.


Best regards,


Patrick

I just checked for add on updates and got a few including one for Dropbox.  I then tried to download and install them and immediately get an error saying the version of Dropbox add on isn't compatible with my version of NVDA. It says the earliest and latest versions it is compatible with are both set to 00.  The 4.4 Dev version I now have installed is working fine but I don't know why add on updater picked up one that isn't good now.  Hope this can be fixed.

Hi,
Where can I get the installer for NVDA 2019.2.1? Given that I've experienced issues relating to Vocalizer and also issues with reading of MathType equations, I'm planning to downgrade back to the 2019.2.1 version of NVDA. Though the Vocalizer issue is not too serious, the inability to have NVDA read out MathType equations is a very serious issue for me given that I need this funcctionality for my introduction to logic class right now.

Re: the NVDA 2019.3 version of Screen Curtain

Giles Turnbull
 

thanks Joseph and Tyler for the double activation method for making screen curtain permanently active. The original addon didn't require this since it didn't have a temporary mode, and the screen curtain of the 2019.3 doesn't mention how to make the screen curtain function persist between restarts.

Tyler, there isn't a checkbox in the vision section of preferences which is why I was suggesting maybe there could be :)

if any where it is more on the second page I was looking at doing a lets say one off donation and on the second one in the edit area it would not let me change it from 200 to what ever I wanted to donate. Most people would stop there.

 

It seemed to do it from the nvaccess website for donations and from nvda for donations. I was using google chrome so will try another browser to see if there are the same results.

Please explain how the form is badly designed. It can't be simpler.

You need to select what type of donation you want. Either you have a set of radio buttons on the Download page, or a set of buttons on the donate page.

It took me well over a year to finally finally set up a small monthly donation to NVDA.  I wonder how many dollars are not getting where they need to go because of a combination of persons with less PC skills and apparently, a web designer or, at least the form designer also having less skills.

 

We need NVDA to grow world wide so more persons will have free access to NVDA.

 

I use Jaws and Narrator too but, NVDA needs to prosper.  I hope some one will fix this unnecessary complicated process.

I can confirm it works w/ESpeak, though, just as in the other

Did u ever find out why this 1st 1 occurred? Seems like not.

I don't have an answer, but I'll keep investigating.
