Re: Question about strictly using NVDA core functionality on nonpersonal computers

Louise Pfau
 

Hi. Thanks for the tips. I think the only add-on that wasn't on the add-ons website might have been "Report Passwords". There was one called "Speak Passwords" that was only compatible with NVDA 2019.3. I always want to be careful with other people's property, just in case something gets damaged, particularly in the case of add-ons or programs when it's unknown how the computer will react.

Re: NVDA indentation reporting, can it ignore blank lines?

Tony Malykh
 

I would love to have this feature too. I checked NVDA sources a while ago, and I didn't see this feature implemented. I might implement this as a hack in one of my add-ons some day.

Hello,

as a programmer, I use indentation reporting almost every day. One particular thing that has really been annoying me for years now is is demonstrated in this scenario:

block header
  line 1

  line 2

because of the blank line with indentation reporting is read as:
block header
two space line 1
no indent blank
two space line 2

although the blank line and its lack of indentation  has no semantic meaning and does not change the block structure in any way, NVDA reports the change of indentation anyway, leading to redundant verbosity, making it much harder to focus on what is relevant.

I am not saying that NVDA shouldn't do this. this is definitely relevant information in some contexts, but I would love if there was an additional setting that would make indentation reporting ignore blank lines. so the previous line in the buffer that is compared to the new line to determine whether to announce indentation change would be the last non-blank line visited. so, the above example would read as:

block header
two space line 1
blank
line 2

I was thinking of developing an addon to enable this behaviour when I have a bit more free time, but wanted to check first if this behaviour is possible by any chance without an addon.

Re: NVDA indentation reporting, can it ignore blank lines?

 

I can understand why you want this.  Even if I were editing pure text, I know I'd prefer not to hear "no indent" if there is actually no indent.  Reading the line, as is, should imply no indent.  But I can also understand wanting that to be a toggle, there are times where hearing "no indent" can be useful as well.

If the notification is still active and on display, WinKey+Shift+V.   Repeated presses should continue cycling through older notifications, but it's usually simpler just to go to the Action Center.

Otherwise, follow Mr. Maher's instructions and access your notifications list in the Action Center with WinKey+A

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).

I think that if your laptop has a cellular modem in it, you can use it as a hotspot. However, if it is just a regular Wi-Fi network card, then no. I, however, have used my iPhone with cellular service as a hotspot when the Internet went down in my nursing home for a weekend.

NVDA closes after disconnecting from bluetooth

Jimmy Vonderlinden
 

 I'm using NVDA 2020.4 and I use bluetooth speakers for my computer that turn off after no activity for a while. When I turn the speaker back on and it reconnects, NVDA  is closed and I need do the control alt n shortcut
Has anyone experienced this and if so, any workarounds?
Thanks
If it helps, I use a JBL charge 3 . It's a great speaker by the way
Have a great day guys

Re: Question about strictly using NVDA core functionality on nonpersonal computers

Luke Davis
 

I would agree with Gene. If the add-ons come from the community site, they should be safe to use anywhere. Security is one of the tests they have to pass to get there.

That said, not all add-ons work in all versions of Windows. I don't know of any that will actually impede access to an earlier version of Windows, but the add-ons themselves might not always work.
Windows 10 App Essentials comes to mind, as one that only does certain things depending on the version of Windows, and the version of the add-on. And on Win 7 or 8 it won't do anything.

I would suggest creating the portable, and then pruning out any add-ons you don't think you'll need, or that are not community site add-ons.
