Re: NVDA on a Lenovo Miix 630 - no modifier key at all

 

Hello,

This is my guess too. This particular keyboard model just does not accept any other keys to be pressed together with Caps Lock, and I will discuss the issue with Lenovo.

But then, if we for a while forget about the Caps Lock and other, so to speak, traditional NVDA modifier keys that simply do not seem to work.
Would there be a reasonably easy way to get the < key to act as a NVDA modifier key? It could be a good solution at least temporarily.
In the Finnish keyboard layout the < key is the one sitting between left Shift and z; I think it is  back slash (\) in the US English one.

locked win10 2004 and file explorer options issue

 

To make it clear, before this happened I was configuring some optional features, but it could have happened before this, I was getting rid of some unsecure smb protocols that I did no longer need.

However putting everything back didn't seem to do much.

Its just that settings in file explorer options will not take till I do them twice.

So far this is just the hide protected system files and hidden folders and files, its another annoyance but not a showstopper as I can get around it.

I hhave had it on 2 units an amd ryzen 2ng gen and my 4th generation intel in the same house and also a 7th gen intel I have in another location so its not just my configuration.

I will probably feed back these and see what happens to it.

Its not that important exactly, most of the time I only touch this stuff after major updates and while I need to get access to some folders to do with some file syncing services, I can get access to those another way.

As for others saying only install early if you want to be in the shakedown cruise, I am fully aware of this.

I have tested things for several years now and when its stable enough for the public to use then I will gladly test things as long as its not effecting me directly with to many issues, I have backups.

I would not suggest anyone else do what I do unless they want to test to.

Hmmm I got the warning messages before the request and had no chance to respond to the requests at all.

I am making sure I previde links from now on, but I'd like the option to try again knowing that I need to put links and really should in any case.

The problem, Shaun, is that you almost never include anything, period, that backs up your assertions that are incorrect.  This has been the case on the NVDA group, too.

Links would have been more than adequate, but were virtually never provided, either proactively or when requested.  And those who share reliably accurate information either include citations as a matter of their regular posting practice or can produce same when asked.

Hi.

Just noticed another little issue with options in folder options/view.

In particularly hidden files and protected os files.

Sometimes when you tick an option to show or hide they may or may not take and have to be done again.

Sometimes they will not reset at all and you have to restore folders.

Its not a showstopper its just annoying, has anyone else noticed this.

I have noticed this on both my computers here.

Now I don't need to really have these options off at least for the c drive except after an install when I want to clear extra junk folders.

It but for my resilios I need to access a folder to clean out its junk files

Though as I sit here I find since I know the folder name I can actually access it without doing so.

Still its another small glitch with this update.

I have also put up a blog post at http://technology.jaredrimer.net on the windows 10 page with links to various drivers I got from codecguide.com.

Due to losing posting on one list I won't post any more information I can't verify or in fact breaks the verification rules.

And since while I can do links I refuse to include entire article pages to justify my posts I'll leave it to others to do.

They have different characters, but both group of characters are in the same UNICODE group...


So, like among the latin languages, it is not possible, without lots of processement, to switch from chinese to japanese and vice-versa...

Re: speech history

 

Something quirky is going on with this add-on.  I have NVDA 2020.1 and a few minutes ago downloaded the Speech History Add-On (speechHistory-2020.2) from the official repository using Add-On Manager.

When I tried to install it, I got an install failed message, yet when I went back to Add-On Manager it's showing in the list.

I exited NVDA and promptly restarted it again, and at the moment it's hanging in Add-On Manager in the Choose Add-On Package Dialog, and has been in that state for approximately 5 minutes.  I'm now killing NVDA with Task Manager.

It seems to have restarted again fully functioning, but I'm not yet sure that Speech History is fully functioning.  It does show as installed and enabled in the Add-Ons Manager, even after the failure to install message.

NVDA on a Lenovo Miix 630 - no modifier key at all

Chris Mullins
 

Hi Isak

The links below indicate that there were some concerns about 3rd party software running on ARM devices back in 2017 but I think many have been resolved since.  The fact that the Bluetooth keyboard worked OK points to the issue being with the keyboard on the device itself and as another list member said, I think you need to take up the issue with Lenovo, as the device is inaccessible to you.  There maybe BIOS settings that can be configured so Lenovo Customer services would be a first port of call.

A little update.
I just tested with a Bluetooth keyboard, and the issue was not present.
It's not a solution for me to use a separate Bluetooth keyboard, since the keyboard that comes with it is quite good and works as a case for the tablet, but maybe it can help track down the problem.
Just to make the thing a bit more clear, the keyboard that comes with the device is attached to the tablet part using some own docking system; I've not seen such a system before. In the Device Manager it shows just up as a HID Keyboard Device. I have tried updating the drivers through the Device Manager with no luck.

Sticky keys might work for you (hit shift five times to get started).
Not ideal, but then you could hit insert or capslock (assuming they work with sticky keys), then the NVDA key in question.

You should look at the CMOS for keyboard options, as someone suggested, but it sounds like that laptop has very limited multi-press keyboard support.
Those are not "normal" modifier keys (like alt, shift, and control are), and it seems as if the keyboard is not capable of providing scancodes for modifiers that it doesn't know are modifiers.
That suggests more "intelligence" on the part of the keyboard controller than is usually there in a simple keyboard.
You may want to contact the manufacturer, and make an ADA based complaint that they are producing an inaccessible laptop. Unlikely you'll get anywhere, but this may be solvable in firmware.

Hello all,
I just bought a Lenovo Miix 630 laptop: a little, neat thing to travel with.
My problem is that the NVDA modifier keys do not work. The computer seems to have both Caps Lock and Insert available, because when I finally was able to
access the keyboard help using the Miix computer remotely from another computer, it says "NVDA" when I press Caps Lock or Insert, and also Caps Lock comes
on when I press it twice, so it seems that everything should work. But still, if I press, say Caps Lock + B, it acts like I would have pressed only the
letter B.
This is not only an NVDA issue; exactly the same thing happens with Narrator. I cannot use any narrator commands that involve the Caps Lock key.
Another pain is that I haven't been able to reverse the function keys, so I have to press. for example, Alt+FN+F4 to get out from an application.
I do not know whether these two problems are somehow related.
Especially the fact that I don't have a NVDA modifier key makes the thing almost unusable.
Has anyone seen something like this and maybe been able to solve the problem? _._,_._,_
