Hi,

NOte that after installing the new add-on version from the below link, Add-on Updater may prompt you to "upgrade" to an older release; ignore it: https://github.com/josephsl/addonUpdater/releases/download/22.01/addonUpdater-22.01.nvda-addon
Thank you Joseph... for this and above all for all the great work you did and you're doing.

Re: NVDA Remote 2.4 Faulty with 2021.3.1 and Below.

Hi, Tyler,


I took the plunge to test it while connected to the machine with my friend not present.

I updated the add-on, copied the settings over to be used for UAC and security prompts, then went ahead and updated NVDA on the machine in question.

All seems to be working fine, both with UAC dialogues as well as the security check for entering a PIN.


Thanks,

Nermin

Hi,


Got it, thanks a bunch!


Do you know what caused this weird issue in the first place?

Will test it once my friend gets back from work.

Re: NVDA and formatting on a webpage

Ali Colak
 

İ can't say if this will help without seeing the page, but perhaps
going to the document formatting section in the NVDA preferences and
changing some of the settings, then checking the checkbox to report
formatting changes might help. Again, I don't know if this is the
case, but its worth a try. There just might be a problem with the way
the page is formatted.

SentenceNav settings problem (Re: [nvda] Tony's add-ons: updates and new features)

Martin J. Dürst <duerst@...>
 

Hello Tony, others,

I have another problem with the SentenceNav add-on settings panel. This seems to be a problem that only appears visually, not in speech.

What happens is that some of the settings (from "Sentence breakers" down to "Disaple SentenceNav in applications") are all shown on top of the first setting ("Volume of chime when crossing paragraph border"). Because they are on top of each other, only the last one of them is visible.

When I check the program, it seems that all the setting elements that are created via sHelper (gui.guiHelper.BoxSizerHelper) and all the settings with sliders (which use settingSizer, the second argument to the makeSettings) get some space, but all the other settings don't get space.

Because this is a problem of on-screen layout, it may be very difficult to debug. I'm ready to help as much as I can, but any advice regarding layout of settings dialogs is appreciated.

Regards, Martin.

Try compiling the latest git master. That should fix it.

Hi all,
a friend of mine and I are using NVDA to remote a PC that is streaming audio over TeamTalk. The machine in question is a Dell XPS13 on Windows 10 21H1, and, due to the add-on incompatibility with NVDA 2021.X, still using NVDA 2020.4.
Whenever I try updating the add-on to version 2.4, I am basically locked out of the laptop in question, since there is a PIN or security dialogue in place.
With v 2.3 of the add-on, I can always enter the PIN with no problem whatsoever.
As soon as we update the add-on to make way for a new NVDA installation, I can only access the machine so long as there is no UAC-related dialogue or the laptop does not go into screen lock mode.
Has anyone seen this and is there a fix?
I've contacted the developers on their e-mail address, but no answer whatsoever. I've also tried searching the Github page, but nobody seems to have that issue.
We've tried uninstalling both NVDA, the add-on, also cleared the "use current settings for logon" and copied that over again, none of which did anythingto resolve the issue. We've also used other laptops to tap into the system, but every laptop produced the same result.
Any idea is welcome, or if anyone knows of current ways to reach the developers, please post.
I know that the UAC comes up and wants a PIN cause I can hear it on TeamTalk, but that part does not handshake with my system for some reason and I cannot
enter anything, as if there were no connection.
Regards,
Nermin

Re: Blind programmer mailing lists

 

Hi,

Actually, I concur with Jackie - program-l is much better and is a general programming list for blind developers. The list does receive Python questions from time to time.

Cheers,

Joseph


Re: Blind programmer mailing lists

 

As a side note, when it comes to freelists.org and lists you may be interested in, it is always worth going to their list search page and doing your own search.

One that I found there on a search for "blind programmer" is pyblind, which is for blind Python programmers.  A search on "blind programming" would probably have a lot of overlap, with some groups not shared with the "blind programmer" search.

The pyblind list, if it's active (that I didn't check) would be a good resource for someone interested in "the nuts and bolts" that underpin NVDA.

NVDA Settings Search Feature Request - Here it is . . .

 

As I suspected, I didn't have the magic search terms for this particular issue.

If you are an NVDA user who believes that there should be a Settings Search function, please see the following issue, and add a comment to the end:

Provide the ability to search for a setting to change #872

It would be good if there was an Orbit Writer list, as I'm struggling with similar questions about using it with Talkback. I seem to be in grade 1 braille and punctuation gives me numbers, for example,  A lower d gives me 4 and not a full stop/period?

Right, These are correct steps.

An alternative way would be to open github page directly. Here is the one for or browser nav:

New steps begin on new lines.
Open tools in the NVDA menu.
down arrow to manage add-ons and press enter, and find the add-on in the list.
Then tab until you get to a help button and press the space bar.
I believe this usually opens the web page where you downloaded the add-on and the page usually has a description of how to use the add-on and available commands.

Hi, i didn’t find a help button when it came to any of the ad-ons that tony has written.  there was only something that gave something about things.  What do you suggest that i try as it relates to any help file concerning ad-ons.  Thank you for any information that you might have as it relates to ad-ons.

Yes, it is possible, I just tried that and it seems to work. It's a little ttricky to configure since this button tends to disappear quickly.
On quirk is that sometimes this button is called:
Skip Ads
and sometimes
Skip Ad
So you would need to either create two separate bookmarks, or use regular expression in the pattern to capture both like:
^Skip Ads?$
