You not got another key stuck down by any chance ?

Give your keyboard a good scrub and polish its a long shot but it may work

 

Good luck

Good morning list; Marv here.  Someone asked me a question regarding an external keyboard.  When I plugged one into the laptop, the alt keys worked.  Do not know what to try next on the laptops keyboard.  The computer is an hp pavilion g6 notebook pc.  Anymore advice would be appreciated.  As stated previously, the alt keys on the laptops keyboard do not work properly.

 

 


Re: VLC alternative?

I've used Winamp for more than fifteen years and had no problem with advertising.  I don't know how you used it so there may be some uses that you see advertising.  But for playing files, there is none.  I see no reason to assume that VLC Player has declined.  All we know is that one person asked for alternatives.  If that person knew certain commands, such a request might not be made.
 
My impression, though I haven't looked into this and it's just an impression, is that players of the type being discussed are not intended to play a lot of Internet Radio.  for that, you would probably be much better off using something like Tapin Radio or with your browser, something like Tunein.

VLC with advertising? where? obviously on the download page, but VLC doesn't have advertising in the program it self and the setup installer is clean.

Re: Mystery surrounding computer

Chances are then that it's a hardware, or BIOS setting issue with the laptop's own physical keyboard - not sure what BIOS settings could be relevant, but, you might need to get a sighted tech to check that out for you.


And, FWIW, the reason I mentioned the physical keyboard in the first place is that, with all my laptops, I still just use external USB keyboards, since trying to work with a more compact, lapto keyboard, with, or without a numeric keypad would slow me down too much...<smile>

NVDA Vocalizer lag and Windows 10 lock screen

 

Hi list,

When I use Vocalizer for NVDA, it always seem to lag when I first turn on my laptop. The voice I'm using is a premium high varient, so not sure if that is the cause; my laptop is pretty powerful with Intel Core I5 at 2.5GHZ, 8GB RAM.

Also, when I powered on my laptop, NVDA won't always announce the Windows logon prompt like it does in Windows 8.

Has anyone experienced the issues I mentioned?

Re: Question regarding computer

Jacob Kruger
 

Another thing to double-check is under the OS control panel, make sure the input language is set to US english, since this can also affect interpretation of keyboard layouts at times.


Alternatively, if possible, also try an external USB keyboard, and see if it behaves the same way.


Stay well
