locked Re: how to use my windows laptop as hot spot?

 

Sazid,

          Now, I will state three things clearly:

1. This is not an NVDA related question, but about Windows 10.

2.  You said you are using Windows 7, which is out of support, and which I stated does not have the mobile hotspot feature as part of the OS.

3.  Discussions of out of support software, which includes Windows 7, is in violation of group rules.

Again, you can't do what you want under Windows 7.  And if you've upgraded to Windows 10, this is a question that should be directed to the Chat Subgroup or the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users Group.

But, if you have upgraded to WIndows 10, it would make sense to add the WIndows 10 App Essentials Add-On to NVDA.  It gives added support to many areas of the Windows 10 Settings, and could solve your issue.

This topic is now locked.

As Ted has implied, that really depends on how you are defining hotspot.

If you want it to act as a real hotspot, it must have internet connectivity
so that it can send data "out there" whether it has it via an internal
wireless connection like smartphones use or it's just connected to the
internet by WiFi.  It will use whatever connection it has in the hotspot
function to get things to cyberspace.

If you want it to act as a local area network, without necessarily being in
contact with cyberspace, that can be done, too.  It's really the same
concept as when your modem router somehow loses connectivity to cyberspace.
Even though that's gone, all the devices that are connected to it within
your home, business, whatever can still communicate with each other.

Settings, Network & Internet, Mobile Hotspot Pane.  The toggle to turn this
feature on says, Share my internet connection with other devices.  And that
clearly states what it does as far as a connection to the internet.  If you
have no connection to the internet, then it can't be shared, but you can
still have connectivity between devices with the computer acting as the
router.

Any additional deep diving into this feature should occur either on the Chat
Subgroup or the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users Group (or another venue
of your choosing).

Re: NVDA and JAWS are mute

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi Inamuddin


Does NVDA start up? but just has no sound?


I am wondering if it is the synth package you are using on both has expired or stopped working with them


if nvda is running can you use the nvda key + ctrl key + the letter S


When the synth dialogue comes up either press the letter E for e speak voices or W for windows one core voices if using windows 10. It might of gone to no speech in nvda.


Are you using a blu tooth head set speakers or a headset or ear piece that plugs into a 3.5 hole on the computer


I am guessing if that fixes the problem you will need to do the same to the other screen reader as well.

locked Announcement Only: The Chat Subgroup - An Underused Resource #adminnotice

 

Hello All,

We have had the NVDA Chat Subgroup since day one, and there is some really interesting traffic on that group that's not NVDA-related, but most of it isn't really what most of us would  consider "chat" in the conventional sense.  The name of the group is a bit of a misnomer because, although social topics are absolutely permitted, they do not constitute the majority of what comes up there.  Most of the topics are dives into the features of programs that NVDA is being used to access, announcements that might be of community interest, questions about whether certain NVDA add-ons might be developed that don't exist, and the list goes on and on.

It was never envisioned that anywhere near to 100% of the main group membership would join the Chat Subgroup, but we've been sitting at just under 20% of our total NVDA Group members having joined the Chat Subgroup. If you haven't considered joining, please do consider joining if you're someone who wants to discuss any sort of topic, including technical topics, that are not about using NVDA, per se.  We'd love to have you.

The traffic from the Chat Subgroup is quite low, at least as things stand now, but if you're worried about that, see my tutorial, Controlling the Messages You Receive via E-Mail from Groups.io (docx), and set up topic preview for the Chat Subgroup (or any other Groups.io group where you currently get more individual message traffic than you'd prefer).

locked Announcement Only: New Groups on Other Media - Announcements Regarding #adminnotice

 

Hello All,

          As a big believer in information sharing, I have occasionally and will continue, occasionally, to bend the group rules and allow the announcement of the formation of venues that I believe would have value to a number of our members so that they are aware of them and can join if they so choose.  Permission should be requested via the group owner address, nvda+owner@nvda.groups.io, before making such an announcement.

           The above being said, any further traffic, including information about specific events sponsored on said venues, should be placed in the Chat Subgroup rather than the main NVDA Group.  I would appreciate the cooperation of those making such announcements about either the formation of a new venue, or events on those venues, going forward.

Re: OK, great regex and NVDA Dictionary Gurus

 

Giles,

          You're quite welcome.  I came to the conclusion late yesterday, after looking at the page at the tinyURL link you gave, that this was likely some artifact of machine translation.  There is no way in Hades that a living, breathing human being would do this, again and again, particularly when they're using "the usual" punctuation on the right side of the quotation to end it!

           I can't imagine why the closing quote would have made it not work.  If, by some bizarre chance, this regex eventually starts tripping over something else that it shouldn't, I also noticed on the example that there is a space after those two initial prime marks, which I elided into the part of the regex that captures what's in the middle.  You can reintroduce a single space after the two prime marks to make it even more contextually selective if that's ever needed.  It probably won't be, but it's worth knowing.

Re: OK, great regex and NVDA Dictionary Gurus

Brian, that reg ex works! It didn't work with the " mark end of the closing parenthesis of the initial text, but I tried deleting that and it works :)

I can't remember if I said in a comment, but my friend confirmed that she hadn't typed those prime symbols, they are apparently an aberation of Facebook's translation system.

Thanks again for your assistance :)

Not that mentioning these issues here is inappropriate or off-topic, because it isn't, but hoping that developers might stumble upon a comment here is not the way to get anything fixed if that's your real concern.

And if you're someone routinely using Alpha and Beta software, part of your obligation in doing so is actually logging issues in GitHub.

how to change the tick symbol to apostrophe by Gene

anthony borg
 

one tick.

For this example, I'll describe changing just tick and you can use the same procedure for all.

Open the NVDA menu with NVDA key n.

Down arrow once to preferences and press enter.

Up arrow to punctuation/symbol pronunciation and press enter.

Shift tab once to filter.  Type what you are looking for, in this case, tick then tab once to the list.

You will see a number of results.

You will find one that just says tick.

Tab once and type what you want to use such as apostrophe.

Tab to and activate the ok button.

Now, the symbol should be pronounced as apostrophe.

What does that mean exactly? Are you talking about the alphas (snapshot releases)?
If so, then the appropriate venue for this is in a Github bug issue at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues/new?assignees=&labels=&template=bug_report.md

That is where people who work on alphas predominantly gather.

Please CC me as I'm not subscribed to the list.
Honestly, I find it a little unusual to be asking for help on a list that you aren't subscribed to. I should think that the whole point of a mailing list is to both receive and offer help, and if you aren't a subscriber offering help would be difficult. (The giving part of the give-take equation.)

That aside, I would help you if I could, but I have never used Firefox profiles in the way that you are using them, so can't offer much but to suggest that you revert to whatever earlier version worked for you, and meanwhile report a bug, with log, on Github.

I would also point out that if you auto-upgraded to Firefox 87.0, there may be some change to the way profiles work. So trying that older version of NVDA to find out if the old behavior resumes, is probably a good debugging step to determine whether this is NVDA's, or FF's, problem.

New Issue With Activating Elements on Firefox?

Bhavya shah
 

Dear all,

I think my Firefox just got auto-updated (it is now version 87.0).
Along with that, I recently began experiencing issues on Whatsapp Web
as well as on Google Search with activating different links and
elements. I press Enter, move to it by object navigation and then
NVDA+Enter, route the mouse to it and then simulate a left mouse
click, press F11 to perhaps maximize Firefox and then press Enter, go
into focus mode and then press Enter, but I just can't get them to be
clicked. Are others facing anything similar? If not, I'll keep
troubleshooting to try to remedy this odd but significant bug.

Thanks.
