Re: NVDA remote access and usage

Sarah k Alawami
 

I've actually used the nvdaremote.com server but I like the kn4crc.com server as well as for me it's a bit less laggy. But all the steps are right otherwise. I used this actually a few months ago to troubleshoot a sim problem a friend was having. Unfortunately this will not work when controlling a shadow machine. The person with the shadow will hear it but you as the controller won't.

Hi,

You can press alt, to open the file menu, and press escape to exit out from the menu, it should focus properly again.

I don’t use skype here, but am on a tech team group.

They were talking about skype last evening.

try pressing the alt key to get to the menu and then pressing escape and see if that helps.

They think it is a focus issue.

Try alt tabbing away from skype and then alt tab back and see if that does anything.
